Re: Looking for Kercher links in Australia

Late last year I sent a message to this forum along these lines. There are not many of us in Australia, and it seems that the first people of our surname arrived here in 1859. This was Charles Beal Kercher, of Overton, Hampshire. He came with Mary, his wife, and two young children. They settled in the country town of Goulburn, about 100 miles south of Sydney. None of them was a convict: the last convicts arrived in mainland NSW in 1840.

I have traced their descendants through to myself and my brother, if you are interested.

I am occasionally contacted by people of our surname and, as I recall, we are all descended from this family. There are real advantages in having what is here an unusual surname.
