GLUYAS / BOOTHE (Jan Gluyas Mon Dec 30 22:22:30 1996)
I am trying to find information on the Gluyas family who migrated from Cornwall
in the 1820's. William Gluyas had been involved in shipping with his brother Oliver
who choose to remain in England. William and at least his son George Karkeek Gluyas
were in shipping in Alexandria until at least 1828 when william apparently died.
George Karkeek Gluyas married a Helen Boothe, sister of William Boothe. They left
6 children with Helens mother when they migrated to California in 1850's. The eldest
son died in the Civil War and another died in a Prisoner of war camp. A daughter
married and stayed in Virginia also. William and George may have been joined in thneir
ventures by one of Williams nephews also a William Gluyas. His other nephews Thomas
Gluyas (died in Sydney) and John Gluyas (was shipwrecked in Bass Strait) were ships
captains and another brother was married to the heiress of the Mumford/Banfield shipping
yards of the scilly Islands. If you can shed any light on the family I would be eternally
grateful.. Jan Gluyas
