Swan River Pioneers 1829-1838

About the SRP Group

  • PDF

srplogoThe Swan River Pioneers Group 1829-1838 was formed early in 1993, as a Special Interest Group of the Western Australian Genealogical Society Inc.

The era 1829-1838 was chosen, as this was the period of Sir James Stirling's administration.

His administration as Governor ended on 31st December 1838. On January 5th 1839 he departed the Colony with Lady Ellen Stirling.

The Group produces Certificates of Descendancy for members and non-members who are directly descended from the early pioneer families who arrived in the Swan Colony during the above period.

The Committee has produced and passed some 6000 Certificates to  descendants and applications are still coming in.

In 2017 the Swan River Pioneer Special Interest Group of WAGS became an independent incorporated society, the Swan River Pioneers 1829-1838 Inc.
