The Luck family line that is relevant to my ancestry, and the stories (that will later be) contained on these pages, has its beginnings in Australia with Nelson Luck who appears to have arrived alone on the Anna Maria in 1857 and Charlotte Hilder, who was born to two bounty immigrant parents in New South Wales in 1844. The Luck family members who are significant to my family line have mostly lived in Gunning, New South Wales and its direct surrounds.
