I would be very interested to hear about the Moonta Mines, South Australia connection to the Butson name. It seems that a great migration of Cornwall mining families occurred in the early 1800's to work the mines of Australia. I wonder if any of the Canadian "Solomon" and "Cecil" relatives in Cornwall took this, rather than the Canadian route?
