Are there any Australian Britcliffe's on this forum?

I wonder if this is where the Australian branch of the family started, or did someone emigrate down under at another time?

Hi, welcome to the forum.

There are none that I am aware of but you never know. I don't recall any Britcliffe queries. The site search might answer this?
