Are you descended

from anyone on this list?

The Dalwood Restoration Association , Inc., which consists of descendants of the Wyndham family and descendants of some of the convicts assigned to work for them, is holding a function

on 7 September 2019

at the Dalwood Estate Cellars,
Branxton, NSW.

The purpose of the function is to bring together the descendants of anyone who worked on one of the Wyndham properties at any time between 1828 and 1900.

As you would appreciate, identifying the convicts, Indigenous people, free settlers, colonial-born employees, and the German vine-dressers is challenging.

If you would like to join the Dalwood Restoration Association or are interested in further information on the 'Descendants' Day at Dalwood', please contact:

Don Seton Wilkinson
Hon. Secretary
Dalwood Restoration Association, Inc.
