Hello Douglas

My sister has been gathering information about our G.G. Grandfather Peter Noon born around 1856 in Kirtlebridge, Scotland. He move to Australia (haven't a clue as to how he came here or why) around 1895. He married a Lucy Goodwin and they moved to a place called Lithgow (Wallerwang), in New South Wales, Australia. Possibility he had relatives in that area but not sure about that. Peter and Lucy had a number of children which our Grandfather was the youngest child. When Peter Noon died my grandfather was about 11 years old. We believe he left home to fend for himself around that age and didn't have much contact with his family after that. He came from an era where he didn't talk much about his family.

However, my father was of the understanding that his grandfather, Peter Noon came from Ireland until recently when my sister obtained his birth certificate. My father was told his grandfather spent his childhood in Scotland but his family had moved there from Ireland. We have a family link to Scotland which my father knows very little about. Douglas, - my email address is
