My research starts with William Neate and Lucy ? from Wilcot Wiltshire, England. One of their 4 sons, William Jr., ended up moving to Australia in 1855 with his wife Elizabeth (nee Nash). They settled in Eaglehawk (Bendigo), VIC Australia. They had at least 7 children that I am aware of (William Stephen, Edward Charles, Elizabeth Lucy, Eliza, George, Henry and William). I think that William Jr.'s brother, Henry also came to Australia in the following year of 1856. I'm not sure where Henry settled or if he was married at the time of his voyage to Australia.
I would be interested in any talking with anyone researching this line of Neate's.
