Gilles Family Genealogy Forum
The Gilles family that I am related to were known in Australian History in the 1800's. They were also related to the Horne family & the Lucas family.
The first colonial treasurer for South Australia was know as O.G. (Osmond Gilles)
The family home in Adelaide was known as Woodley, and I beleive streets, cemetaries, and buildings in Hobart & Adelaide are named after them. O.G. arrived on the Buffelo which I beleive there is a replica in Adelaide as a resturant.
I am searching for a book written by Valerie Hicks who along with her husband Sir Cedric Hicks resided at Woodley. She has written a book call. O.G. The Colonial Treasurer (Biography of Osmond Gilles) Published by the Author August 1985 - printed by Gillingham Printers Pty Ltd. of Adelaide.
If anyone who lives in Adelaide reads this I would like to find a copy.
