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)

Charles Wilton (b 1856) & Mary Ann Reid (b 1855)

Of Charles Wilton I know little more than is shown in his family tree information, although it is clear he was in Australia in 1882, as a travel diary provided by Barry and Madge Wilton shows. Barry is Charles' great grandson. Charles married Mary Ann Reid in Scotland in 1883 and they had five children. The second child, James (b 1885) came to Melbourne in November 1922.
