The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! I hope you enjoy reading about my family history discoveries as much as I have in discovering them.

These three amazing people have been so generous in giving their time and support to me in this journey. I cant thank them enough. My beautiful Wife, Alexandra and our amazing Sons, Calan and Xander.


This is Alex and my version of the Macvean Clan today in 2019. Over 170 years since the first Macvean stepped onto Australian soil. But we are not just the Macveans we are so much more than just one name. We are the Cannon’s, Jones’s, Nicoll’s Raymond’s, Trippconny’s, Ashton’s, Stapleton’s, Mercer’s and Quinn’s just to name a few.

Alex is busy working on her Family History and has her own stories to share so the focus of this blog is going to be my clan and their stories. And what a clan they are.

My plan is to have no plan. Im just going to share with you whatever happens to be the subject that reveals itself and follow that wherever it leads us.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I am completely addicted to this journey and just loving the opportunity to share with you.

One final point, as my 3x Great Grandfather once wrote, “…I trust to be excused grammatical errors also errors in orthography and composition.”
