As you can see, the first four generations are all Australian born, with many of my Great Great Grandparents coming from overseas. If we were to go back a further generation, there are no Australians and we add Germans and also an American (who is 50% African based on DNA tests).
The first of my Ancestors to arrive in Australia, was Samuel Mottram, who was a guard on a convict boat, which arrived in Tasmania in 1838 initially, before he moved on to Western Australia with his family. He then moved to Victoria
