Two HEATHER's were transported as convicts to Australia in the late 1700's and early 1800's. However, officials converted the surnames of both to EATHER and there are now some tens of thousands of EATHER descendants in Australia.
Ancestral research indicates the following lineage.
1. Robert HEATHER buried 21 Nov 1684 and his wife Mary buried 16 Mar 1695 - both of Chiselhurst, Kent, England.
2. The son Robert born about 1640 Chiselhurst who died 20 April 1700. Wife Helen Potter.
