This web site traces the family of Thomas & Amelia (Millie) Allott. They arrived in Melbourne, with their 3 children, on 23 October 1856 aboard the "Eagle". They completed their "tree change" by settling in Hurdle Flat near Beechworth in the north-east goldfields of Victoria, where they lived out their lives and raised their children in a very different environment to their native Yorkshire.

b.24 Dec 1819 Sheffield, Yorkshire
d. 16 Nov 1882 Hurdle Flat, Victoria


13 Jun 1847

Amelia WOOD
b. 1830 Sheffield, Yorkshire
d. 8 June 1884 Hurdle Flat, Victoria

Their children were:

Clara 1848-1925

There is some contention concerning the order of the children and the actual number. On the death certificate of Amelia there are listed 15 names, and on that of Thomas 14. Both certificates were completed by their son Thomas. Certainly there were only 3 children who travelled to Australia.

The LDS website lists the baptism of Mary Ann Allott, 24 Jan 1849 at St.Mary's, Sheffield. Father: Thomas and Mother: Amelia.

It is with great regret that I announce the passing of Mary Lynch on 7 August 2019. Mary was a friend I made when I first started this project. She was a kind and generous person who gladly shared her research with me - and I presume others. Most of her research was "old school", not using the easy path of the internet. She provided me with a large part of the Allott family tree, for which I will always be grateful. Pleasant chats over a cup of tea and her amazing memory for dates will be the things I will always remember about Mary.

I would like to thank everyone from whom I have received assistance with information and especially copies of documents and photographs relating to the various members of the family. Without their interest and help this site would be reduced to simply names, dates and places.

My special thanks go to the following: Laurie Allott (dec.), Keith Archibald (dec.), Mary Cleary, Lee Hall, Aileen Cooper, Ngaire Francis, Gladys Peake & Judy Dixon who between them provided most of the photographs & documents. A large part of the tree structure is from Mary Lynch. Thanks also to new contributors Eileen Allott, Dulcie Beer, Graham Paxinos, Jennifer Fox & Jan Curran as well as the interest shown by Ian Allott & Thelma Hutchison.

For anyone who would like to correct my errors or add new information, I encourage you to contact me. The same applies to anyone wanting higher resolution copies of any of the material in these pages. The external links were correct at the time of publishing.
