Descendants of Rev Joseph Qualtrough and Agnes McCullock 
- Thomas Alpheus Qualtrough 1828-1910

See 4 Generation Chart of Descendents (pdf File 7kb)

Ninth in line of the children of Joseph and Agnes was Thomas Alphons (or Alpheus) Qualtrough, baptised 14 September 1829 in Lonan, although it is believed he was born in 1827.

Thomas emigrated to Australia in the early 1850s perhaps following his other brothers. A 24 year old 'Thos Qualtrough' arrived in 1853 on board the 'Tasmania' with his brother Edward and a few days after Alexander, and then went on to Melbourne by coastal boat.

Thomas met and married Sarah Podmore in 1863 and they farmed land in Diamond Creek, north of Melbourne where his brothers Edward and James also farmed.

Thomas and Sarah had six children, most of whom died in childhood. The second eldest, Isabella Louisa (known as Lucy), born 1866, married William Johnson and they had seven children, descendants of whom still live in Melbourne to this day. Thomas Alphons (or Alpheus or Alfred… take your pick!) died at Diamond Creek in August 1910.
