The Luckhurst Family
Posted by Brenda Luckhurst on July 27, 2011, 5:15 pm
Hello, I am the grand daughter of Andrew Guy Luckhurst late of Launceston Tasmania. I've been researching my family history & a friend came across the Wills family site with a reference to a story, for this is what my sister & I thought it was, until reading the Skeleton in the Wills Closet. My grandfather & father both told a patchy story of 2 boys raised in the Luckhurst family who had claim to a considerable amount of money. As I said, their facts were patchy but I always thought Bethia Amelia Guy wife of George Luckhurst my G Granfather figured in the picture somehow. She obviously did not raise these children for the mysterious Mrs McDonald as she wasn't married until 1880. But I would love to know if these children could have been raised by a brother of my GG grandfather Charles Luckhurst who I'm having a beast of a time finding any information on other than his birthyear & the year he married Elizabeth Whelan. It's all rather exciting & I'm having a wonderful time looking into the past but I would be most grateful if anyone can help with this one. I'd like to think that Charles had a brother or sister here in Australia & a subsequent line of Luckhursts I havn't met.
