Hello all,
I am a descendant of Charles Pringle Hughes, one of the two brothers of Charlotte Louisa whom worked with George Charles Knight Gregson when they first came to Australia.

My branch did not know that Charlotte had come to Australia (in fact we even have the brothers arriving in Aus in the 80s) so this, as you can imagine, is quite exciting to discover. Does anyone know what happened to the other brother, Frank? There was always stories of a third brother who went back but perhaps this third was actually George KG.

Would anyone have some information about Charles or Charlotte that they'd be willing to share?

Hello NHughes,

Lovely to make contact.  I have quite a lot of information about the Hughes family - both the siblings who came out to Australia and those who stayed in Northumberland.  Too much to write here but basically there were 12 siblings overall but some died fairly young.  Pringle is the brother who went back to England. He was the doctor.   George was the oldest brother who accompanied Charley out here to Australia and then went back to Middleton Hall in Northumberland.  Their brother, Frank married bigamously, took to the drink and ended up dying as a swaggie under a tree near Wee Waa.  However his young daughter married, had children and left many descendants.  Likewise Charlotte Louise and George Knight Gregson left many descendants - of which I am one.  Charlotte Louise is my great grandmother.  

I will contact you with more Hughes information.
