Above: Tom in Oz reporting from Billericay Essex UK - where Russell Tovey grew up. This medium-sized town is not far from where my convict ancestor originated. Anthony Rope of the First Fleet of Australian convicts was from Rochford.
On the 14th November 2010 Mrs Oz and I are visiting my long lost cousin Kathy at Westcliff-On-Sea which is not far from both Billericay and Rochford. Kathy and I both share an ancestor called William Ahern who ran away from Blackrock Cork Ireland at age 12 to roam the sea in search of adventure. William became a Customs Officer in Oz and had a very respectable life. Sadly for Kathy's family, William's grandson (a noted opera singer), roamed the world leaving at least 4 ladies with families on different continents. It was a miracle that Kathy could find any connections to her family's origin in Oz but I'm glad she did.
Because it is Mrs Oz's birthday today we intend to have a family reunion at Kathy's with baked dinner and champagne.
