This is a national family history of the first MAWBEY families in Australia. It also includes people whose surnames are pronounced the same but spelt differently who may or may not be actual relatives. The most common spelling variant is 'Mawby'. This is a wide-reaching, ongoing research project, a 'work in progress', by Pamela Mawbey, a great great granddaughter of George Mawbey, the English forebear of the NSW Mawbeys.

There is a police record on the Find My Past website (www.findmypast.com.au) about GEORGE MAWBEY (Jnr) of Ann Street, Sydney reporting a horse belonging to him being stolen from Botany.
The incident, reported on 18 April 1890, concerned a bay mare with the brand SSW near its shoulder.
George ran his own business as a carter, using a horse and cart to carry goods, so without his horse, he was without any source of income.
