well, there is a lot of work been done on the Mountney side of the family – Violet May’s first husband and father of her children, and my grandfather, was Samuel Francis Mountney. They were married in 1922, and later Divorced.
The Mountney clan has been traced back to 1207, and includes nobility and French royalty!!
There is a branch of the Mountney clan living in Queensland, and it is Kevin Mountney that manages the myheritage.com site. It’s 10 generations back before we have a common grandparent!
Have also had some success finding information regarding my great grandmother’s line – Mabel Edith Canavan. Her clan are definitely Scottish with both sides coming from the same town eventually.
Have had little success tracing the Neale family line – although there are very many listed in myheritage.com so I am optimistic.
There is a possiblity that my lineage may lie in the Parker line, so I will also have to consider that.
