Introduction Explore the Family Tree Browse the Library of Evidence View the Resources Used

By Mary Henderson

Welcome to the web site. I've set up this site to bring together family tree information about ancestors and descendants of my four grandparents: Kenneth Henderson married to Elizabeth nee Blunt, and Ronald Woodhouse married to Florence nee Surgey.

The original idea was to create a way to share the extensive family tree research carried out by my great-aunt Margaret Henderson with relatives spread between Australia and England. That led me into researching the family tree myself, and the site has since grown with contributions from relatives, some distant, with the same interest. A proper list of thank yous is under 'View the List of Resources Used' (see links at the top of the page). I can't guarantee the information is completely accurate, just correct to the best of my knowledge.

If you would like to contribute - with corrections, additions, photos, documents, questions, ideas for improvements, or anything else relevant - please email

The site is split into four sections which can be accessed from any page using the links at the top: this Introduction, the Family Tree itself, a Library of Evidence such as birth certificates and photos, and details of the Resources Used to compile the tree and build the web site.

Interesting individuals to look out for:

Jessie Isobel Dowdell (whose entry includes photographs and a biography written by Dr Margaret Henderson),
Rupert and Alan Henderson (whose entries includes diaries from Gallipoli),
Davenport F. C. Blunt (whose entry includes a photograph and his birth and marriage certificates),
James Woodhouse (whose entry includes census returns and his will), and
Leonard Surgey (whose entry includes his birth certificate and marriage certificate).
