I originally intended to do all the Mawbeys in Australia on the one blog, but it became too big and unwieldly so I have created new blogs for each state.
Victoria starts here ...
The state government of Victoria (Vic) does NOT have a free online historical family history search index. They charge 99 cents to view a page of records, and will only accept payment by credit card.
Not having a credit card, all I have been able to ascertain is that under all BDM categories, there are 66 records under MAWBEY and 160 under MAWBY.
My newspaper research has revealed that a very prominent person in early Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, was HENRY MAWBEY.
He was a horse racing identity and it is probable that a MAWBEY STREET in the suburb of Kensington is named after him.
There was also a large family of MAWBYs at Daylesford in Victoria, a member of which was CHRISTOPHER WOODWARD MAWBY.
