CURLEWIS FAMILY HISTORY
WEB SITE

Welcome to this Curlewis family history web site.

This site is designed to document the family history of Curlewis's particularly in Australia, but also in England and South Africa, Argentina and Italy.

Sources include primary documents (letters, shipping lists,census returns, wills etc), secondary documents (extracts from monographs, journals etc) plus anecdotal sources (reminisences, oral history etc).

I have completed the family tree information, as far as I am able. Additions are welcome. I have recently received more information on the Italian connection, which I have added to the family tree information (link)

I still have lots of information to add to the site, which is being done gradually. In the meantime, I welcome any additional information, such as letters, articles, etc as well as old photos etc.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE IN PARTICULAR PLEASE GO TO THE INDEX OF INDIVIDUALS PAGE

Comments, feedback welcome and many thanks to those who have contributed to this site by providing me with information.

    In the 1970's, Terry King (descended from Septimus Lord) undertook research into the Curlewis's in Australia (and their origins in the UK) towards a thesis. As he undertook this research, he sent out a number of Bulletins to keep people informed of what he had found.

 

CURLEWIS FAMILY CREST

 

The drawing of the crest was obtained from a family member in South Africa who believes it came from Australia.

 

The photo is of the wax seal used by George Campbell Curlewis (Australia) in a letter to his fiancee in 1835, thus confirming that it has been in use at least since then.
