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.

Another early 20th century English emigrant to Australia was Arthur Henry Mawbey, a great grandson of Samuel Sam(p)son Mawbey.
His father was William Samuel Mawbey and his mother Harriet Jane Mawbey.
Arthur married Vera Hannah Little at Granville, near Parramatta west of Sydney, in 1944.
He died in 1957.
