Annette Maree PURTON
MY FAMILY TIME CAPSULE (Past and Present) to be continued…..
EDGERTON, CHATWIN, TEMPLAR, PURTON,
SCARCELLA, MARTIN, O’MARA, DICKSON and many more……
Over my webpage, I will be telling a story about how I, Annette Maree PURTON, became a DESCENDANT in the family trees, EDGERTON, CHATWIN, TEMPLAR and PURTON. This wil be my version of our history, a time-line of events and how we all came to be one big Family. Enclosed within will be any information, history, stories, books, photographs, newspaper articles and much more for our ongoing tree. I will be taking us back to the past, from my convict ancestry, to my life from birth to current. Writing about my memories, knowledge and research that I have, as my contribution to our family tree. As time goes by more information I have, will be added. Don’t hesitate to drop in from time to time to see how I am going. This has now become, for me, like a book I can’t put down.
This is so exciting to me to be doing this and so far I have found out so much more than I would have known otherwise. I welcome you all to my page, welcome any comments, suggestions or even input, if anyone would like to do so. Hoping that the following page is as interesting to you as it is to me. Thank-you , Annette.

loving you and breathing
I would use my last breath
