I am trying to put together a book on the Males family, after arriving in Australia.  If you have any information - stories, pictures, etc. please e-mail me at CindyKuoFamilyHistory at gmail.com.  I would be thrilled to hear from you.  Anyone who contributes will certainly receive their own copy of the book. Descendants of Thomas George Males

I believe I have recently found evidence that most of the Males that have emigrated over the years to Australia, including those to Tasmania & Victoria, are in some way related as they all come from the same area.  I am still working on this, so please stay tuned.


My Males family history line in Australia starts 25 October 1857 with the arrival of Thomas George Males and his family on HMS Boanerges.  Thomas brought with him his wife, Ellen; their first child, Ellen Boanerges, was born on their voyage to Australia.  Sometime shortly after arriving in Sydney, they moved to Tasmania where their children, Mary Eliza & George Thomas Males were born.  Sadly, Mary died at age 5 and George Thomas at age 1.  Between George Thomas' birth (1860) and Frederick William's birth (1862), they moved back to Burwood in NSW.  Their 5th child, Henry John Males, was born in 1864.  Unfortunately, Ellen died as a result of giving birth and Henry John Males died shortly thereafter "for want of breast milk".


There seems to have been at least three separate Males families that emigrated to NSW, Australia in the 1800's.  William Males (sometime before 1849), George Males (1852 - arriving on Humboldt) and Thomas Males.  There was also a George Males who married a Mary (she died in Goulburn).  This George doesn't seem to fit in with our Males family.  Also there was a Frederick Males who married a Sarah Cohen in 1880.  Again, this Frederick Males does not fit in with our line of Males.  Originally I thought he was the son of Thomas George Males & Ellen Buck but Frederick's death certificate shows that he was never married.

Recent discovery is that Amos Males, who emigrated to Victoria, is also related.  I'm working on pulling all of the information together into a printable format.
