Peter Waterworth was born in 1943 to a Tasmanian-born father (Allan Noel Waterworth) and a South African-born mother (Beryl Irene Waterworth). Allan's family migrated to Australia from England and Ireland during the nineteenth century. The Waterworth family of parents and six mostly adult children came from Scarborough in 1886 and 1889 and settled in Hobart. The Alcock family came from Norwich to Melbourne in about 1922. Allan and Beryl met and married in Launceston and travelled to a number of places since Allan was a gold asssayer and metallurgist. Their four children (John, Mary, Peter and Helen) were born in Hobart.

The family moved to Melbourne in 1949 and Peter went to state primary and high schools and eventually to university where he studied teaching and the social sciences. He graduated from Monash University with a PhD in sociology in 1984. He first taught in state primary schools until 1971 when he gained a position as a lecturer in education at first, at Melbourne Teachers College (later merged with the University of Melbourne), then Toorak Teachers College and eventually Burwood Teachers College (later merged with Deakin University). He took early retirement in 2001 and has since been working in consultancy projects in Victoria and a number of countries in South East Asia.

Peter is married to Elaine Neate and has four sons, David, Mark, Christopher and Philip and grandchildren Caleb, Joshua, Thomas, Samuel, Grace (dec.) and Bailey. There are a number of "roots" in the family tree, in previous generations including Waterworth, Alcock, Smith, Murden, Riches, and current generations including Moyle, Messieh, Henderson and Drendel.

Peter has interests in art (particularly ink sketching) and music (barbershop/choral singing).

I use the free online GRO UK birth search as it gives the mother's maiden name. Really helpful if you have a census page with a family, you can look up the children's births and find the maiden name of the mother. Cheers Kylie

Hey Peter. Just a quick note to let you know that we set up a new WikiTree page on Facebook. I think it will be a good forum for WikiTreers to ask questions and make suggestions for the site. If you use Facebook check it out. Cheers, Chris

Hi Sue, I'm not sure whether the Myers in my family would be related to your Grandpa. I don't think so because the Myers in my family were all in England at that stage. However, I can't be completely sure.

My Grampa Ellis Walter Myers was born illegitamately near Metal, PA in 1910. His last name was Miller but was changed to Myers perhaps when his father's id was made known to him. Any history of anything like this in your family? I'm trynig to trace his paternal roots.

Thanks, Sue Myers

Hi Peter. I took the liberty of editing the links to your parents inside your bio. (The trick with wiki links is the double set of brackets.) Chris

Hi Peter, It looks as though you have been busy. We have had computer problems and I have lost your email address. Could you please contact me again so I have it. Jo Williams (nee Waterworth)
Hi Peter. I just happened to notice ... 993 contributions! You're about to enter into the elite "WikiTree Club 1000". Actually, this club is so elite that it doesn't exist. I think you're only the second or third candidate for membership! :-)

Hi Peter. For scanned documents, simply save them as images (e.g. jpgs) or Adobe PDF documents. Then upload them as you would any other image. Let me know when you have more questions. Chris

Hi Chris

Thanks for this site. I've been searching for a while for a way to record aspects of our family tree and came across your site today.

I'm still exploring it. I want to find out whether scanned documents such as birth certificates can be saved on the site.

Once I have got a fair bit of information entered, I'll contact my relatives in various places around the globe to get them to check the information and, hopefully, add to it.
