I looked at the first of the three volumes that comprise the Dictionary of Queenslanders, compiled by Janet Reakes and Eileen Johnson, but there are NO MAWBYS listed in it.
It was published by Australia's Immigration and Family History Centre at Hervey Bay in 1996.
Janet, a very prominent family historian in the 1990s, was from there and Eileen from Maryborough.
I went to one of Janet's talks at Gordon Library and still have the notes I took of her talk!
