Australian Steve Henwood

Another Steve Henwood living in Australia contacted our Stephen Wesley Henwood and said he had visited this village of Henwood in Cornwall . His relatives were miners and coach painters there. They immigrated to Australia in the 1850's and kept up coach painting and later joined railways. He lives with his wife and 2 kids in the town of McLaren Vale, south of the city of Adelaide in South Australia. His is employed as an aircraft engineer for Qantas.

What made me wonder is that our Steve's grandfather, Charles Ernest Henwood, had lived in Australia and in fact set a record with his motorcycle by riding from one end of Australia to the other. Hopefully it might be in their newspaper archives and someone can find it. It has been the talk in this family.
