Family Stories

Life in Australia:

Clearly, Jessie Eliza WEST is not a 'first mother'. She is the daughter of George Cornelius WEST and Agnes WEST (nee DICKSON) who married in Liverpool, N.S.W. in 1864.  Their status as a 'first family' is yet to be established. 

'Related Links' below contains official records of Allan Ashburn, who died during the First World Ward in the early twentieth century.

Life Before Australia:

The Ashburn family (through the generations spelt 'Ashburne' and 'Ashburner') have lived in the County of Lancashire area - Blackburn, Garstang and Churchtown - for many generations.
