I am a descendant of Thomas Austin who was "The Black Sheep" in Chapter eleven of "Hadlow Down, An Autobiography" Puiblished in 1999.

In this chapter it mentions papers found in the loft of Ivy Cottage that had lain undisturbed for nearly 100 years. As these papers contained letters from Thomas Austin to his family from Australia, does anyone know where these papers are now as I would very much like to see them to aid in my research of my family history.

Any help in tracing these papers and the information they contain would be very much appreciated.

Have you tried contacting Peter Gillies 01825 830319? He was a prominent member of the Hadlow Down Millenium Book Committee. His email address is peter@petergillies.co.uk although he doesn't always answer emails.

good luck

Peter

For anyone who is interested, I have now traced Thomas Austin "The Black Sheep" in the Hadlow Down Book, to the Bendigo area of Melbourne in Australia and I am now working on finding his descendants via his only son "William Alonzo Austin" from 1853 right up to the present day.
