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.
