Howarth Family Genealogy Forum
My great grandmother was Sylvia Howarth and was born in Sydney 1858/59. It has been a nightmare trying to research her family history as she gave birth to my grandfather in Brisbane in 1879 - illegitimately. My grandfather took her surname and was raised by a William and Ethel Howarth and how they are connected is a mystery( maybe Sylvia's parents or a brother). I am hoping that Sylvia's family originally came from UK but I can't be sure. My own father, who is no longer alive, was never able to give me any information. I think the fact that his father was illegitimate meant that it was all to be 'swept under the carpet'. My grandfather's name was William George Edmonstone Howarth. Any help at all would be wonderful!
