Pye is my family name. My ancestor, Thomas Pye, arrived in Sydney, Australia in 1837 on the ship, “Prince George”. He came with his employer to Victoria the following year and eventually settled in the South-western district of Victoria. His brother, John Pye, had arrived in New South Wales in 1836 and settled in the Windsor district of NSW.
The Pye brothers were born in Staffordshire, and I have traced their origins back to the early 1500s.
