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.

GEORGE MAWBEY, COLONIALIST
George Mawbey I arrived in what is now Australia in its colonial era.When it was governed entirely by the English government through its ruling representative, the Governor, in the colony of New South Wales.
The last colonial governor was Sir Charles FitzRoy.
After him, a fledgling form of self-government was established and power-sharing began between the former colonialists and the home country.
