Welcome to the Herbert Family Association
Who We Are
The Herbert Family Association Inc. is an association of the descendants of First Fleet convicts John Herbert (c1760 – 1832) and First Fleet convict Deborah Ellam (1765 – 1819), and John and his second wife, convict Anne Dudley (1785 – 1838). The association was formed by a small group of their descendants in 1987 in preparation for Australia’s bicentennial celebrations in 1988. …….more.
DEBORAH ELLAM’S GREAT GRANDPARENTS
JOHN ELLAM AND PHOEBE DUTTON
John Ellam and Phoebe Dutton were married on 27 November 1704 in St Mary and All Saints’ Church in Great Budworth. They were shown as coming from Appleton and that they were married after the posting of banns.
John was 28 years old when he married and Phoebe was just 19 years old. This is known from the baptism records of both John and Phoebe.
