My historic family of VALPY have connections to the De Carteret’s of Jersey.
According to my and other researchers I am a 5th cousin of Capt Phillip De Carteret the navigator. I have always wondered why there seems to be no public recognition of this
gentleman, a statue or something in a public place.
I am a firm believer that had he been better equipted by the Royal Navy with a
more seaworthy vessel he may have gone on after discovering Pitcairn Island and found
New Zealand & Australia before Capt James Cook.
