Hi there,

If anyone is from the William/Arthur Landry family this may be of interest. William came from London in 1849 with his Wife Sarah and settled in Victoria.
I have just come back from the original Family land purchased in 1909 by Arthur Landry (William's son)and his wife at Jaggan in Atherton Tableland - north Queensland. I sighted the land and spoke to some locals who's families helped each other to develop their lands into small farms. Hard work as it was all dense scrub. There are good Historical Societies with great photos of origanl settlers etc.

My Father (also Arthur) was 4 or 5 when they moved there, and 3 other sisters, Clara, Lila and Ollie were born in Jaggan and much later on Daphne.

If anyone is intersted I have some great old photos and details left by Lila with detailed day by day history of how they lived etc.

Beryl Dwyer - nee Landry.
