This is a copy of my family tree to share with anyone who is interested in the Moore and Considine Families. My main focus of research is on the Moore and Considine Families, however I'm interested in all the sidetracks and tree branches along the way. Apart from Christopher Cook who may have been a convict and who married Ellen Considine there are no convicts in the Moore Considine family tree. However I have two major sidetracks with convict ancestors. One is Edward Whitton, my fourth great grandfather, who arrived on the first fleet from England and married Ann Slater a convict from Ireland. Edward didn't steal a loaf of bread to feed his starving family, he was found guilty of highway robbery. The other is Jonathan G Harris, my third great grandfather, who was found guilty of burglary and shipped to Australia in 1826. He had three wives and seventeen children. Accuracy: All information has been compiled by me largely from data supplied generously by my many cousins and cousins of cousins. Birth Death and Marriage records and certificates have been used where available. They are not always accurate particularly Death certificates. These are prepared from information supplied by a relative who is usually emotionally distressed at the time and who may not be aware of data (family skeletons) that has been concealed from them. I'd be pleased to hear from anyone who is related and interested in any of the families on this file.
