Steve was born in 1954 in Sydney and lived with his parents at 129 Barton St, Kogarah, NSW.

At the time, his father worked for the then Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) as a professional radio operator at Mascot airport. Starting at the beginning of 1959 his father was posted to various airports around the country as the airport officer-in-charge (OIC) and so the family moved around (a standard posting was three years):

  • Albany, WA, 1959-61, 263 Albany Hwy
  • Broome, WA, 1962-64, 1 Forrest St
  • Carnarvon, WA, 1965, 127 Olivia Tce
  • Ceduna, SA, 1966-1968, 26 Poynton St

From 1969 his father was posted to Adelaide airport, so the family moved to Adelaide and settled there at 15 Keen Ave, Seaview Downs, SA. The family’s choice of Adelaide was to give Steve access to senior schooling.

Steve built a house at 35 West St, Seacliff Park, SA, and moved in on the 1st of May 1980. Thirty years later, after raising a family and a long career in Information Technology, Steve bought a house at 4A College St, Glenelg, SA in 2010 and retired one year later on 1st July 2011.

Descendant of convicts Steve’s maternal side is descended from these two Australian convicts:

gggg grandmother (First Fleet, 1788) Ann (Forbes) Huxley

gggg grandfather (Third Fleet, 1791) Thomas Huxley

Followed Tags

Brackam (aka Brackham) is my mother's maiden surname. This line is prominent in Sydney, Australia, but I don’t know where it originated. There is also a Wilson line that links back to Thomas and Ann (Forbes) Huxley from the third and first fleets respectively.
Original spelling for my mother’s maiden surname family line. The change may have occurred due to being accidentally misspelled on a registration of marriage, which was then adopted.
Clafton is my father's surname. This line appears to originate in Osset, Yorkshire, UK, emigrated to Australia in 1884 on the Warwick and settled in Sydney.
