Margaret Brookes and I are researching Appleton ancestors. We both live in suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

George Debney emigrated in 1852 on the ship Hebrides; two children Thomas 8y and Kate 6y accompanied him. Catherine Culpin Debney emigrated in 1854 with Annie 12y, George 5y, Alfred 3y, Charles 2y, on the ship Daylesford. They settled in Castlemaine, a country town in Victoria (south east part of Australia). Kate Debney had a defacto marriage to William Webster Appleton. In the 1860/70s they had 4 children in Gisborne, Victoria. We are descended from Claude William Webster Appleton, born 1869. Both Debney and Appleton families had tanneries in different Melbourne suburbs in the 1890s/1900s. George Debney was a currier. He died 18 Oct 1878 in Melbourne, is buried in Melbourne General Cemetery, but I have not located his grave. Catherine Culpin Debney died 18 Oct 1858 of breast cancer; she is buried at Campbells Creek cemetery, just near Castlemaine.
