|About The Venning family in Australia
This is our family tree as outlined in the book "A story of Vennings and their Jasper cousins" 1991. The anecdotes are included.
The book was a major undertaking of the Venning Family Association which had its first meeting at
Effie Venning's place, at Magill, SA on the 22nd September 1985. The current President of the Association is Ivan Venning.
Since June 2009 I have been adding to the family tree using first hand information from relatives, newspapers, SA genealogy website and Trove etc. It is important to me that the 'branches' keep growing.
PLEASE contact me if you are descendants of
John & Jenny (or Jane) Venning nee Bath who arrived in South Australia in 1847
John & Mary Venning nee Jasper who arrived in SA in 1849
George & Grace Venning nee Jasper who arrived in SA in 1849
