While I am very proud of my accomplishment since May 2004 in developing the Taggett Family Tree it would not have been possible without the initial research by Marjorie McGregor Correia and Lesley Harrison.
The branches that have been added with the help of very generous people who have shared their ged files and other documents including:
Fred Hancock, Ray Long, Paul Dixon, Bert and Betty Brown, Bob Adlington, Sarah Evans, Nick Hollingworth, and Marilyn McQuilty Tagget and Darryl H. White, Steven Geoffrey Garrard and Roy Burnell.
There have also been others who have contributed out of the kindness of their hearts and enjoyment in seeing a beginner such as myself make headway. In particular: Sue Davey, Paul Jones, Tania Dennis, the very
talented researcher... Robyn Arkinstall, and a new comer to the field of Genealogy... Cheryle Flower.
Bob Adlington is a descendent of Douglas Johnston who was the husband of Louisa June Tagget. Louisa was the granddaughter of Henry Taggett and Louisa Orchard. Bob and his family have provided me with the Family History of Douglas Johnston, his wife and their children, as well as a photograph of
Douglas Johnston taking during World War I.
Adlington Family Tree
Robin Arkinstall has devoted 30 years of research on Family Tree's. She has assisted me greatly by using local libraries as well as other Genealogy resources, particularly to find the descendents of Henry Taggett and his second wife, Louisa Orchard. She has also gone to great lengths to assist with
the family of Henry Taggett and Eliza Francis as well as Joseph Hicks and his wife Matilda Mary Taggett.
Bert and Betty Brown

Bert and Betty have provided me with Family History of Joseph Hicks and his wife Matilda Mary Taggett from the time that they sailed from Falmouth, England on the "Augusta Schneider" arriving in Victoria, Australia in August 1852. It also includes the return of Matilda and children back to Cornwall, England, and the eventual emigration of the children to Colorado, and other locations within the
America, as well as those who eventually returned to Australia.
