GeniAus - #AtoZChallenge - K is for Konza or Conza

During April 2020 the month of this 
#AtoZChallenge I will be sharing short posts on some of the  2,000+ descendants I have identified of my 3x Great-Grandmother, Elizabeth Phipps

Elizabeth Phipps 1785-1869 was a convict who was transported from England to New South Wales in 1814 per Wanstead

The Konza surname entered the family tree after Janet Hogden married Joseph Norman Konza in 1916.

1916 'District News', Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW : 1890 - 1954), 17 February, p. 10. , viewed 05 Apr 2020,
With the birth of their offspring the Konza name joined our cousin's list.  Janet's death notice from 1928 tells us she  "leaves, besides her husband, three children, one girl and two boys." 

Joseph Norman Konza remarried a few years after Janet's death and had several more children with his second wife. 

Researching this branch has been made a little more challenging because the surname had variously been spelt Konza and Conza or Conzer. I'm hoping that some Konza descendants can help me expand on my list of Konza descendants.

I love to connect with cousins and fellow researchers. Should you find any errors in my post or have additional information please contact me.

An unusual surname, where does it come from? Sad to read of the early death of Janet.

How nice to find an unusual name.
In BC we have a few Conzon or Conzor names in our Vital Statistics. I think this is one family and they might have been Italian. If you want any lookups, just let me know :-)

I’m curious about Konza’s place of origin.
