Tracing the Edwards-Doughty family from Ireland, Scotland and England to Australia


Welcome to the Edwards-Doughty family tree website. This site contains the ancestral information for David Edwards, Lisa Doughty and our daughters Maddison and Jordan. It traces the heritage of our forebears from Ireland, Scotland and England to Australia over the 18th, 19th and 20th century’s.

You can navigate around the site using the links to the right, the links on this page or the search function on the right.

I’ll get a nice pictoral family tree here eventually, but the following structure shows the areas of the site:

This site is a constant work in progress. Pages marked with Page locked refer to living people and are restricted to registered users. Please contact me if you would like access.

    you recently posted a comment on rootsweb I think about St Anthony of Padua RC Church, in Walker, Newcastle, UK. I am from this Parish and am helping put archival information together as the church is celebrating its 150 years this year. Is there any chance you can email me a copy of the marriage certificate of your ancestors. You mention the name Toban, but I think it is Tobin, which was an Irish name. We have records of Tobins in St Anthony’s in 1907. They might be your relatives :) Thanks in advance.

    My name is Christopher Edward David Doughty. Iam 38 male fiji citizen who just moved to NZ. Iam trying to track where my ancestors really come from. was told that they moved from ireland to Australia then my greatgreat gran dad moved to Fiji. I think the name of my great great grand dad was William Doughty. He went to fiji and married a fijian woman.
    my dad passed away when i was 1year old, so i didnt have a chance to ask him where i was original from. have manage to locate a family tree drawn up by my elder sister before she passed away 3 years ago.
    my email address is as follows:

    Hi, I am wondering which branch of Doughtys you have in your family tree. When did they arrived in Australia? I am trying to connect our Doughtys with decendants of John and Rebecca Doughty (nee Griffiths) and Robert John and Hannah Doughty (nee Doughty).

    These Doughtys originally came from Norfolk and settled in Portsea, before the above mentioned Doughtys arrived in the Colony. John and Rebecca Doughty per “Trafalgar” in 1853 and settling in Tumberumba on the Southern Tablelands and Robert John and Hannah Doughty, arrived in 1876 per “Clyde”, disemarking in Adelaide and later making their way to Albury where they settled.

    Dear David and Lisa

    I have just realised that we are maybe ‘second’ cousins. I have a lovely family photograph of the Mildura Gallagher clan. Your grandfather who is seven years old is sitting on my grandfather’s knee.

    Happy to provide a copy for you

    Best wishes
