Thank you very much for your reply.

I have traced you and your wife on the family tree which is being compiled. Would you like a copy?

James Milson was an important pioneer in Australia. In this harsh landscape he carved out dairy farms which supplied the early colony with milk. He was also a pioneer yachtsman.

Interestingly on his marriage certificate Milson signed himself with that name.In government correspondence of the same era his name was spelt Milsom.Later Milson was universally used.

Can anyone help with James Milson's origins in England?
