All of the Mawbeys I have found so far who came to Australia were from England. The ancestry of my English-born great great grandfather, George Mawbey (b.c.1809), the first in my line to come Australia remains a mystery. His wife, Ann Williams, may have been Welsh. I am trying to track down George's English origins by tracing individuals on the Mawbey family tree published by Rev William Betham in 1803.

A MAWBEY ON THE BRITISH ROYAL HOUSEHOLD STAFF
The UK version of Find My Past reveals that a 'Mawbey' was receiving a quarterly pension of 5 pounds from Her Majesty's Privy Purse from January 1865 to January 1867 for work done at the Windsor Mansion.
The money was sent to the recipient in the form of a cheque. Source: Royal Archives (C) HM Queen Elizabeth II 2013
