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.

BAPTISM OF DAVID HENRY MAWBEY
According to the baptismal records of St James Church of England, Sydney, David Henry Mawbey was born on 12 June 1842 and baptised on 10 July 1842.
He was born at Darlinghurst and his father was a clerk for a person or business, the name being hard to decipher.
The minister who baptised him was Robert Allwood.
The word I could not decipher was 'booksellers'.
