Dear Matthew,

Sorry for the delay in replying - I've only just seen your message.

I suspect that it was my brother John who you were mainly in contact with - he did most the work on the Wavish tree. Unfortunately he died a couple of years ago, so I think it's probably best to rely on your version of the Gwavas tree rather than ours where there are differences. Perhaps when you get back to Canberra we could compare notes.

What most interests me is whether it's possible to firmly establish a connection between the last of the Gwavases and the first of the Wavishes. There are various reasons for thinking that Wavish is in fact an anglicisation of Gwavas, but I don't think the exact line of descent is known.

Regards, Peter
