This website contains short histories of a number of Dadswells (families or individuals) who migrated from Britain to Australia, particularly those who made the journey in the 1800s or early 1900s.
The story of the early English Dadswell generations is common to all family members. But over time, separate families emerged and some of these migrated to Australia, creating new stories. To read about these people, see Dadswell Family History.
