My name is Faye Morley. My maiden name was Walters. I am aware that 2 brothers came to Australia as freemen and that they both had 14 children and the majority of these were males who either repeated the number of children or nearly so. They were settled around St Aubans in NSW and on the Hawksbury River. One of the descendants owned the Hotel at Freeman's Reach or near there and were buried on site. I am aware that someone produced a Family Tree book some years ago, however I cannot find out who nor how to get hold of one of them. A family reunion was held at St Aulbans in either 1985-86. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Faye, Aaron Walters 1784-1866 came as a free settler in 1814 & obtained a grant of land at St Albans where he became a farmer & trader. In 1833 he built the Industrious Settler Inn.He & wife Susannah had 8 children & he & his wife & daughter are buried in The Walters Family Plot at the back of their Inn. Hope this helps
