I am an Australian. I understand from family stories that
my family came to Australia in a boat load of French people
deported from Quebec, Canada, They were believed to have
assisted in the financing of the American Revelution against the British.
The family walked from Sydney to South Australia, earning
living on the way by doing work on farming communities.
They settled in the mid north of South Australia where they
successfully raised sheep and wheat. I also understood
they were Huganoats.
I would be very pleased to glean any further information
from anyone out there. The family were an independant,
rebellious lot who held onto some strong french traditions
to this day. There are quite a few Molyneaux's in Australia
with various spellings. I have read some sites that suggest
the origions were english, this does not appear to be the
case with my family tree, my family have always hated the
British with gusto.
