I have traced the name MEDCRAFT back to the 1600s in Churchill Oxfordshire. Would be interested to know what they are doing in Tasmania!

My mothr is 92 and very ill. Her name is Bryda Mae Knowles (nee Medcraft) from Tasmania. I would be delighted to hear from someone who has traced them in the U.K. Maybe I can offer more info for Tas. & Australia - there are lots of them!

Dear Ann,

My Mother, Bryda Mae Knowles (nee Medcraft), passed away last month aged 92. This is about the average age for a Medcraft these days so we get to know a lot of the history by word of mouth. However, no-one has yet discovered how Thomas Medcraft got to Tasmania from the UK - unless he used an alias or is not a real Medcraft?? Can we link him up somewhere? According to our research mainly thru Ruth Ridley and Clive Docking we deduce that he arrived in Tas. in c1843. Applying a bit more arithmetic we deduce that he was born c1827 which correlates with a record from Wolvercote. Son of Mary Medcraft (of John & Mary Simms or Simes), she does not have any records either. He seems to have gone missing from there?

Can you help? Karyn O.

My name is John William Stone (age 70). I was born in Providence, Rhode Island USA in 1937. Elizabeth Ann Knowles (B.1878 D. 1951) was my father's mother (my grandmother of course). She was born in Darwen, Lancashire, England. and came to the United States about 1903. Her father's name was William Knowles who married Grace Dewhurst (B.1855) Don't know if that helps at all.
