I have traced my FEWSTER ancestry back as far John FEWSTER and his wife Anne WILTSHIRE whose son Joseph FEWSTER was born c1835 at Bristol, England based on information contained in the birth certificate of his son (my great great grandfather) John Fewster born 1862 at Ballarat, Victoria (Australia).
Joseph married Amelia LEIGHFIELD (ch 27 August 1837 @ Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire, Eng.) in November 1855 and the couple were then in Greenwich in England before embarking on the Annie Wilson on their way to Victoria.
I would love to hear from anyone who has FEWSTER ancestors in Bristol or the Somerset area at the beginning of the 19th century who may be connected, as I have been unable to find any trace of John and Ann or any other children so far.
Best wishes to everyone,
