My name is Clare Spring, I was born in Canberra, Australia in 1987. My mother was born in Auckland, New Zealand and my father was born in Melbourne.[1]

I started researching my family history in February 2017 and Wikitree has been an extraordinarily helpful platform to do this, and to contain all my research.

I'm particularly keen to "grow branches", meet family members (please get in touch!), and to add information to the profiles of my ancestors. I'm also keen to learn more about my migrating ancestors, including:

  • great-grandfather Norman Michael Campbell who was born in South Africa, married my great-grandmother Lydia Talbot in Northumberland, England, and moved to New Zealand in the 1920s with my grandmother Elizabeth.
  • great, great grandfather William Spring who moved to Australia from Ireland in the 1800s
  • great, great, great grandmother Frances Sheppard who moved to Australia with her family in the 1850s from Ireland
  • great, great grandfather William Frederick Salmon (born in Somerset and moved to Australia in the 1850s)

The table below outlines my progress identifying direct ancestors.

Many thanks for connecting Rebecca Chesher to her father.

I never could have made the connection going top down. I mean the only thing confirming he was from Hertfordshire was the 1861 Census where he appears as Charles Chapman!

Hi Clare...aside from some distant cousins in Australia that I may be linked to through DNA I don’t think I have any seems even the people I’ve been linked to there have come there from many other regions...thanks for responding though I appreciate it.
