The Rawson & Redenbach Families

The Rawson, Redenbach & connected families that arise from settlement in Gippsland in the mid 1800's

“Some in the future may care, and some may not, for any reminiscence of their forefathers. Some only take note of the present fruit and flower of a tree and no account of the root from whence it sprung. But those who have gone before us should not be ignored or forgotten. They have left us a goodly heritage in unsullied names and respected lives.”
Emma L M Guy (nee Commins) (b 1862)

The Cairnes Connection

The Cairnes family connection goes back to the marriage of Josiah Pitman and Annie Irwin Cairnes in September 1989, and the subsequent marriage of their first child, Annie Eileen Pitman to Richard Rawson in February 1913.
