Re-uniting the global family.

For a number of years members of the Botting family in different parts of the world have been researching their Family History. Some books have been published the last of which (that we are aware of) was Pick, Plough, Hammer and Barrel: 400 years of the Botting Family 1597-1997, compiled and edited by Alan D Botting of Adelaide, Australia. This was published prior to a World Botting Family Reunion held in Adelaide in 1997. Botting family from Australia and New Zealand, and representatives from South Africa, the United States, Canada and England, attended that event.

Two previous Reunions had been held in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1977 and 1987 attended by Australian and New Zealand family members, and then more recently in Christchurch in 1999.

A reunion held at Alfriston, UK, in May 2008 helped foster stronger links between members of the UK Botting family and those from other parts of the world.

Since that time efforts continue to be made to link up family members undertaking research into the history of Botting families throughout the world. The aim has been to establish a common database of what is known already, and to work together to fill in the numerous gaps. This is a huge and ongoing task.

If you are a Botting descendent with an interest in genealogical research, and would like to know more about our family history, then get in touch with us through this website.

Thank you for your interest in the Botting family.
