Jury and Mary Ann Cramp Arrive in Australia with their children

As seen in the Sydney Herald – Monday 18 November 1833 Page 2, my great great grandparents Jury and Lydia arrived in Sydney. Jury was a farrier. There is speculation that his business went bankrupt and he came to Australia to avoid debtors prison. Their daughter, Lydia, and my great grand mother was born here in Australia.

  1. Dear Brian Yap.
    I am related to the Victorian Toleman/ Cramp. More so Jessie Agnes Toleman.
    Could you pls contact me, via my email address. (my only avenue to chat)
    Would like to ask about your records you have gathered on your family tree chart info that’s on the internet.
    No rush, if not today, then in the next couple of days, if that suits you.

  2. Thankyou for this information Brian Yap. I have Cramps in my family tree and also some melanesian connection, discovered in a DNA check from National Genographic. I noticed you mention a link to Aborigine bllod in your pages and was wondering if you would be prepared to contact me to see if you have information that would fill in this question mark in my family tree? My email is below. Thankyou

    1. Luisa,

      Either you left your emial off or my software hid it. Anyways, the aborigines I know of are on the Blackman branch of my family tree (that is on my maternal grandmother’s branch). The Cramps are on my maternal Grandfather’s tree.
