I am a Singleton by birth and am curious if you have a listing of Singleton that migrated to the Us. I've seen photos and my father looks like the men in the photos. But I have not yet found where my Singleton's came from. It is a gut feeling. Thanks, Patricia.......

Hi there Patricia,
Benjamin Singleton arrived in Sydney on 14 February 1792. He had travelled from England with his family on the Convict Ship the "Pitt". Singleton went on to marry Mary Lane Sherland on 4th February 1811.

On the 5 March 1820, Singleton accompanied John Howes exploration party, and by the 15 March they had arrived at what was to be known as Patricks Plains.

Singleton was rewarded with a grant of land and he took up residence. By 1823 his family (which was to reach 10 children) had joined him and that same year he was appointed District Constable.

In 1836 Benjamin Singleton received the deeds for his 200 acre grant located at the natural ford in the Hunter River - the site known as Singleton.

The fact that he came from the UK could possibly mean
that other Singletons migrated to the USA

Posted on Wednesday, January 22, 2003 - 2:39 am:   

Hi, My name is Darlene Singleton Porter. My grandfather was John Edward Singleton, Jr., d.o.b. February 12, 1912, in McIntosh or Waycross, Georgia. He died September 28, 1979. I don't think he knew who his mother was due to she died in childbirth or soon after his birth. His father's name was John Edward Singleton, Sr. and his grandmother's name was Nancy Holmes. He had two sisters, Diana Golden and Emma Golden. He did have brothers, Caesar, Joe, Henry and others.

If you have any information that can help me find information about my family, please share it with me.

My great-grandfather was Richard Singleton nephew of Benjamin Singleton (founder of Singleton). My grandmother Rebecca Singleton was born near Bickham on 28 May 1871 and had her birth registered at Murrurndi NSW according to her birth certificate.

I Would like to know of any living relatives of Richard Singleton(of Tomago) and Sarah Ann (Cates) Singleton of Newcastle. I did find their marriage recorded 2 August 1854 on microfilm in NSW State Library and a list of their children in the data base there. Time constraints prevented me from doing further research when I was in Sydney.

My grandmother Rebecca (Singleton) Rowe did migrate to San Francisco, California in February(?) 1907 with my aunt Nellie and my mother was born April 1907. My grandfather Robert Rowe was a joiner and helped rebuild San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake; he died around 1932.

I'm a rank amatuer at the family history thing but I am keen to explore a family connection to George Benjamin Lloyd (born 31/8/1842), son of Mary Singleton and George Lloyd, grandson of Benjamin Singleton. I would like to gather as much info as possible on both families - Lloyd and Singleton - names and dates of course, but also anectdotal stories and photos or portraits. If anybody has any info/links/tips to share that may help a floundering new family historian I would be most greatful. Trust me, the most basic of advice will probably help me!!!

I then come down a Rogan line till the last 2 geneations, i live in Adelaide, and slowly gathering information and tree details for my own personal records, however our line is incorrect on net sites.welcome to hear from any other tree members who would like to exchange trees. email dont forget the underscore line. the hardest thing about this name, is having a town named after them...and weeding out other queries on the town!!! Also if you are a Rogan decendant, re-union is abt 12thJul 2006 in Sydney, either Pitt or Rogans Hill. 200 years! and book is published with a updated version in progress.

I am extremely interested in this message board. I am not very computer literate and do not have an e-mail address. What i am particularly interested in is why everyone else is interested in it. I have heard stories about "missing money" and "the town of singleton was never paid for"...maybe thats what has everyones interest. I know 20 years ago, there was alot of stuff going on in regards to these issues and i am very familiar with peoples last names on these message boards.

Hi Anonymous ( strange name?),
I think people are interested in the board, not just because of the Singleton surname or town, you will find that many people's ancestors spent their lives in Singleton and district. I wa lucky as 4 sets of my great greats lived and died in the town which makes researching those families very easy and usually a lot of descendents are still in the area.

Hi Roy
My g.g.grandparents also had ties to Singleton as did my g.grandparents. Their surname was McMenamin and they are buried, along with other family members in the cemetery behind the R.C. church in Singleton.
Have you seen information regarding them on your travels?

I have recently found a type written manuscript dated 1972 titled "WORLD WAR II - AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY", "Presented in Partial Fulfilment of the Requirements for the Degree of Commerce in University College of The University of Richmond", by JOHN EDWARD SINGLETON, University College of The University of Richmond, 1972. This is an original 87 page typed manuscript (before personal computers). From first glance, the author was born in Richmond, VA, USA in 1925, and served in the navy from 1943 through 1946. From the dates, it appears that he was 47 years old when the document was written. I would very much like to get the document to any interested family member. I realize that this is a New Zealand website, but it seems active with worldwide postings.

Does anyone have any information on William Singleton Snr, Convict(B ABT 1852), about his life prior to his arrival in Australia. Any any information about his transportation. I believe he was born in Cheshire England and he was married on 8 February 1778 in Manchester Cathedral, Lancashire England. I am also his 5th great granddaughter via his daughter Ann Marie Singleton (B. 25/10/1793) at Sydney Cove. Ann Marie married William Clarke, Convict, on 1/9/1810. I believe that I have identified all of William and Hannah (nee Parkinson b:16.11.1758) children (12 in total), but would be interested to compare my findings with any other descendants. I am also interested in finding out who the parents of William Singleton, Snr, were as well as any siblings. I have only been able to find out limited information about some of William and Hannah's children and would be interested in finding out about these children. They are: Child No. 2 - William Singleton B 17/12/1780 in Lancashire England; Child No. 3 - Elizabeth B 7/7/1782 in Lancashire England (I assume she died in childhood as child no. 12 was also named Elizabeth B. ABT 1806 in Mulgrave Place NSW). I am also seeking information about Sarah Ann Singleton B. 27/8/1786 in Cripplegate London. I have no record of these children after their birth. I would appreciate hearing from anyone with information. Many thanks.

The Nsw Bdm records a marriage for William Cooper and Sarah Singleton Reg No: 3142/1870 in the year 1870 at Patricks Plain (Singleton) Nsw

I am very interested to know exactly who is this Sarah Singleton - I do not know her birth details, death details or the names of her parents - or perhaps if she was a widow previously married to a Singleton

The only death registration that I located on the Nsw Bdm for a Sarah COOPER at Scone, NSW:

Death Reg No: 10434/1936
Name: COOPER Sarah
Father: Thomas
Mother: Martha
District: Scone, NSW

Would anyone have any information to identify this Sarah Singleton and to establish if she is a descendant from the convict William Singleton

I am researching my great grandfather William Singleton who left Ireland between 1883-1888 to go to America. Unfortunately I have no idea what part of America. I know he was still alive in 1901 as he is on the 1901 census, but on the 1910 census there is no mention of him, therefore I am assuming he died sometime between 1901 and 1910. He did die in America and again I have no idea where he is buried. He left a wife (Sarah Jane), son (Thomas) and daughter (Lizzie) in Ireland. I would appreciate any help.

I am a descendant of Sarah Maria Singleton who married Thomas Sibree. Ann their daughter had Thomas Farlow (known as Reynolds). He married Sarah Gray and their daughter, Mary Ann Reynolds married Stephen Plumb. These were my gt grandparents. Also please be careful of the information about our William and Hanah's marriage as I sent for this information years ago and gave this information to Laurell Riddler. I am convinced that James is the son of Ann Parkinson who did marry our William and that James stayed in England with his mother and that is why he came out years later. Also on the baptism for William 1880 it states he is base born. I have the copies sent from the miniter from Manchester Cathedral. So I feel Ann Parkinson and our Hannah are two different people. Please contact me on
Lesley Porter
Posted on Monday, June 30, 2008 - 11:51 am:   

Hi Merilyn,
I have just read your message on the ‘message board’ about the possibility that James‘s mother is an Ann Parkinson. So where did the name Hannah come from? I am descended from Hannah Singleton, who married James Zadock Bellamy in 1818 at St Johns, Parramatta.
You wouldn’t be willing to send a copy of the marriage info for William & Ann/Hannah, would you?
And do you have any info on William’s parents & siblings?
I had info passed down to me that James had followed his parents (ie William & Hannah) on the “Aeolus” in 1809 & that he worked with his brother, Benjamin near kurrajong & Wiseman’s Ferry as well as other places.
Hannah arrived on the same ship, the “Pitt” as a free settler with William & some children.
Can you help to clear this up?

I am a sixth generation direct descendent of Solomon Wiseman (Wiseman's Ferry N.S.W.)Seeking information on any of his descendants particularly my grandfather Percy Melville Wiseman who left the Scone district in about 1918 with rumours he went to Queensland.

I have been researching my family tree for several years now. William John Singleton(my great great great grandfather) arrived here in New Brunswick Canada, sometime in the late 1700's or early 1800's. The story passed down through the generations was that he played an active role in the Irish rebellion of 1798 and only escaped by dressing in womens clothing so he could board a ship coming to canada. He married Mary Donovan in 1829. Mary was also born in Ireland. Together they had 13 children, Mary, Edward, John, Ellen, Judith, Honora, Judith, Johanna, Anne, Bridget, Catherine, William, and Julia. Their fourth born ,John was my great great grandfather. He married Elizabeth Hughes in 1864. Together they had six children. Mary, William, Edward, Anne, John, and Blanche. Edward ( great grandfather) married Elizabeth(Bessie) McCafferty in 1899. Together they had seven children. Bernard, Willis, Clarence, Mary, Clara, Raymond, and Basil. Raymond (grandfather) married Kathleen Manderville in 1933. They had nine children. Eloise, Mary, Ruby, Shirley, Edward, James, Raymond, William, Margaret. i currently live on the original Singleton land that William Singleton claimed when he arrived here over two hundred years ago. My house was built by my grandfather Raymond and my mom was raised here. I am raising my own children here now. I am hoping that some of the names i have listed will make a connection with somebody. I am really interested in finding out where exactly William came from in Ireland. I do know that some of his children moved to America. Any info at all that i can add to this lifelong project of mine would be much appreciated.
