My mum's name was Betty McILwham. Your link came up when I did a search. Beety married George who came from Bolton and they lived in Australia, brought up 3 children, 6 grandchildren ans so far only 1 great grand daughter. There is now only one McIlwham in Austalia. My brother John who live in Mackay, Queensland. With such an uncommon name it is amazing there were 2 Betty's. My mum passed away in 2007 but is on the internet through the Art Gallery of South Australia as Gallery Guide of the Year. I will always be so very proud of her contribution.

My mums name was also Betty Mcilwham (nee Roby) and she married Bernard Mcilwham. He was also from Bolton and the son of Joseph Mcilwham. Joseph was George's eldest brother but he remained in England. I now live in Canberra Australia. Unfortunately my mum died at a young age from breast cancer
