Family History


The fifth object of the Queensland Manx Society Incorporated is:



This page is a work-in-progress, but we are hoping to collect information from as many Manx families as possible in order to “grow” our QMS Family Tree.


Here is an initial example of what we are working on:

Manx Society picnic 1915Queensland Manx Society, 14 November 1914.
Picnic at Seventeen Mile Rocks
(The group traveled up the Brisbane River aboard
the Vera Veg Veen to Seventeen Mile Rocks)

Kinship links as supplied by Norma Conwell and David Bayliss.
This list is a “starting point” for other members and interested persons to launch into their familial kinship.
Norma and David are step-relatives through the 1834 marriage of Catharine Craine to Matthias Cain, the widower of Ann (nee Lawson) (David’s Fourth Cousin, five times removed).


Please contact us through the “Contact” page to request addition/deletions/amendments etc.
If you would like your Kin added to the list then please supply us with a GEDCOM file, or a link to your online data.
