About Rachel Hewson Loosemore Family Tree
There are 40+ generations included in this family tree.  There are individuals in all 
lines still being researched. 

I have two special interests: 

1) My convict ancestors... Elizabeth Cole (First Fleet), Richard 
Cornelius Burrows (Second Fleet) and Sylvester Lush (first convict transport to Hobart, Tasmania) 
2) The two lines I have researched back to an incredible number of notable, noble, and royal 
ancestors from two of my 3 x great-grandmothers Tryphena Mostyn Owen (paternal) and Emma Fox 
(maternal). Note that some of the very early ancestors recorded on these lines are considered 
"traditional" and are included for interest.

I'm grateful to family members, newly discovered distant cousins, and fellow family historians 
that I've met along the way, for providing information, sources and photos, and for giving me a 
lot of excellent advice and/or leads.

Genealogy is such a fascinating and absorbing hobby. It's humbling to realise that we only 
exist because of life events and personal choices made by our ancestors.. and that we belong to 
a very large extended family. I believe the old adage that you don't know who you are until you 
understand where you've come from.

I hope you enjoy looking around my site and if you like what you see, or you think that we may 
be related in some way, please sign my Guestbook... AND INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IF YOU'D

I am often adding new photos to the family albums on this site.

Cheers, Rachel
