UPCOMING EVENT - Toby Ryan’s 200th Birthday

The Nepean Family History Society are having a celebration in honour of Toby Ryan’s 200th birthday.
He was Anthony & Elizabeth’s grandson through Mary Rope.
Toby played a significant role in the development of Penrith, and it is wonderful that the district has not forgotten his contributions. He built Emu Hall and the first 2 bridges across the Nepean, and he served as the local member for many years. Penrith Library is digitizing the 1982 facsimile edition of his 1894 book, Reminiscences of Australia.
The Nepean Family History Society are launching this on Saturday 3rd Feb 2018, at the Old School Residence, GWH (off Lawson St), Emu Plains. The digital copy will be available on a USB stick from the NFHS from Feb 2018. To purchase this item please contact them direct through their website:- Nepean Family History Society

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

Its aims are :
