Sammels genealogy

William Sammels

If you follow this link you will find the details of the genealogical research my dad has done for his paternal side of my family.

My paternal grandfather, William Thomas Sammels was born in Cornwall on 5 April 1893. In 1922 he married Emily Chowings and in the same year they migrated to Australia. They had eight children, and my father, Douglas Roy (Doug) is the youngest.

I've bugged all my relatives for various details and I've included details of some of my cousins (can be down to second and third) details here. Please email me if you want more information on the people in the site.

Neither dad or I have had a chance to really start the genealogy of my paternal grandmother, and we'd appreciate some help with any details that you may know.

Emily Chowings was born on 5 February 1902 in Devon, United Kingdom. She was one of seven children of Henry Chowings and Mary Gliddon. Emily married William Sammels in 1922, and we know the rest!

Some of my relatives have traced my maternal great grandmothers side of the this tree, but mum and I are having fun trying to track down the details of my great great grandfather - Patrick Consedine. If you have any details you can share, please let me know.
