Hi Robert,
Trayton & Mary Ann were my GG Grandparents. I descend from the youngest child, Frederick who came to Australia in 1889 with 4 children (a 5th was born in Australia later). Three of which became school teachers. Trayton & Mary had 13 children, two of which died young. To my knowledge, only two came to Australia, Frederick and an older sister, Mary (married to Wiliam Cramp).
Our records show a son known to us as Thomas (or Tom). His birth (19 Oct 1846)& death (1 Feb 1929) dates correspond too closely with those you listed on a Morman Web Site some years ago to be a total coincidence. We believe he ended up in Canada or USA. His birth name may well have been Henry Trayton, but because of his father, he may have been known as Tom to avoid confusion.
Census records indicate in 1861 - "Boy - `Rolla` Tender to HMS Victory, Portsmouth Harbour, Hampshire"
Robert, I had attempted to contact you via mail about ten years ago, but possibly the address I had was incorrect. I received no reply.
I would be very interested to correspond. My email is if you would like to contact direct.
I also have a web site which has limited information about family members.
Regards, Bob Chrismas
