I am researching the history of the family of William Fullerton and Mary Dunne (My GGG grandparents) who arrived in Melbourne on the "Himalaya" in 1840.

Their children were:
Peter, Michael, James, Bridget Elizabeth, Mary Ann and Johanna ( and possibly John and Thomas). I know that they lived in Melbourne, Geelong, Elphinstone and Inglewood.

I am looking for descendants of Mary Ann FULLERTON who married George BROWN in Bendigo in 1871 (son of George BROWN and Jemima CROOKSTON).

Surnames of descendants include: SULLIVAN, COURT, AUSTIN, BAKER and WEBBER. Locations of interest are: Ballarat East, Clarendon, Bendigo, Benalla, Sale, Beechworth, Moonee Ponds, Mentone, Ascot Vale, Cheltenham, North Melbourne.

Another name of interest in Ascot Vale is HOUGHTON.

Any help would be most appreciated. I am hoping to publish a family history of the descendants of William and Mary FULLERTON and would love to be in contact with a member of this family branch.
