The Rope-Pulley Family Heritage Association is a group of descendants from the two First Fleeters, Anthony Rope and Elizabeth Pulley.

Its aims are :
to be a central focal point for research into the descendants of First Fleet Convicts : Anthony Rope and Elizabeth Pulley
to consolidate information from the family lines and to share stories about our Australian heritage
to preserve family archives and heritage items where possible

You can read about Anthony & Elizabeths' lives on the Convicts and Farmers pages. Together they had 8 children, 6 of whom had families. There is further information about their children on the separate story pages. The Service - WW1 page lists all family members who served our country in WW1.
Interactive Maps is an educational page that has 2 maps. The Story Map shows points around the greater Sydney area where important events in Anthony & Elizabeth's lives occured. The Descendancy Map shows where each of the first 10 generations were born; there are no personal details on this map.

Use the Family Trees menu list item to choose from the individual family tree lines that are available.

Membership is $15 per year to any descendant of Anthony & Elizabeth. We are a Not-For-Profit Assoc. Members receive quarterly newsletters and are welcome to attend meetings. See the Contact Us page to find out how to join.


Members: Please see current newsletter for date of next meeting


We would like to collect a central repository of family photos that can be accessed by all members of our group. So if you have pictures of the older generations then please contact us. Many thanks to those who have sent some in already.
