One of Australia’s oldest farming families welcomed a new member to their clan this week, marking eight generations of farming and family history. The Otton’s were one of the very first families to settle in south-east NSW, at Popes Hole, in Bega.
The Otton dynasty dates back to the early 1800s, when the first Otton, John Thomas Otton, was shipped out to Australia as a convict in 1837. Richard Otton, from the 5th generation, is now one of the country’s newest great granddads.
