Welcome weary traveller in cyberspace. Come on in and rest awhile. If you are a Williams yourself, a big welcome to you. Make yourself comfortable by the fire and I will tell you a story. Our story. Our Williams Story.

Overview

The story takes us back to the arrival of the First Fleet, the convicts and the very beginnings of our nation, Australia. It explores what we know of our Welsh history. Experience the drama of the trial of John Williams when he was sentenced to transportation "beyond the seas."

As you read the story you will discover that relatives of our family will be found in Australia, Wales and in the USA.

It is also interesting to note the children of this family being born now are eighth generation Australian. Only our Aboriginal brothers & sisters can be more Australian than that.

Purpose of this Site.

Before commencing the story I think I should let you know the purpose of this site. It is to place on record what is known of our family history. It is for the information of immediate Williams family members, their friends and future generations of our family.

Also, it is hoped travellers in cyberspace who happen to land at this site may be able to contribute constructively to increase our knowledge of the family. Hopefully, it may just help some in their research too.

Acknowledgments

Also, I must acknowledge the outstanding work by Joyce Watmuff (nee Williams). The results you see here are all her work. This site exists only because of her  efforts in research over many years, her enthusiasm, expertise and dedication to the task of tracing our family history. Thank you ever so much Joyce.
