Lindrum Family History
Welcome to our website.
‘The Lindrums were a family of champions, mainly in billiards and snooker, but also in primary industry (winemaking) and entertainment (dixie-land jazz and the big wheeled bicycle).’
The first member of the Lindrum family to arrive in Australia was my great-greatgrandfather Friedrich Wilhelm Von Lindrum. He arrived as a passenger aboard a tiny ship in 1849 carrying with him two skills; his billiard playing and his winemaking; but it was his billiard playing that would be first put to the test. His win against the great British champion John Roberts Snr., signalled the start of the Lindrum legend; five world-class champions in the same discipline in only four generations; my father, Horace Lindrum was the last member of the Lindrum billiard playing aristocracy.
