Yaxley family and friends from Norfolk, England to Tasmania

Introduction:

  • this page helps to summarise the Yaxley families and their friends who emigrated en masse from Norfolk, England in the mid-19th century to form a farming community at Norfolk Creek, just west of Devonport in Tasmania.
  • they are included on my website as one of them married an AYTON and they came from the same region in England as my AYTON ancestors, furthermore, descendants of the BEAN family who emigrated from Suffolk married one of my direct line AYTON ancestors.
  • it is fascinating to see how a large number of families primarily from the Norfolk and Suffolk counties of England were offered assisted immigration to settle in the Launceston region where they became a close knit community and many of the children and descendents inter-married.
  • certainly, the AYTON's who came had additional incentive given their father Edward AYTON (1810-1875), who had been convicted and transported in 1837 appeared to be making a reasonable life for himself in Tasmania once he had gained his freedom.
