Trove Tuesday - Pusells Gazetted

I haven't done any serious searching for my Pusell line on Trove since the Government Gazettes came on line. For this TroveTuesday post I decided to go looking.

The Pusell mob got quite a few mentions some of which I'll share here . The earliest is for a land lease in Rockley, NSW for my convict ancestor,  James Pusell.



James Pusell and his wife Maria Tucker who were my Great-Great Grandparents had a lot of children to feed!

My Great-Grandfather, James Pusell, found himself in a similar situation.

Great-Uncle Bill also found himself on the wrong side of the law.

It seems as though Great-Uncle Dick wasn't faring too well in 1920.
1920 'IN BANKRUPTCY.', Government Gazette of the State of New South Wales (Sydney, NSW : 1901 - 2001), 3 September, p. 5275. , viewed 24 Sep 2019, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article224610884
These few snippets demonstrate the value of using Government Gazettes for family history research. These references have provided contemporary confirmation of Names, Places, Dates and Activities of my ancestors.
