GeniAus - #AtoZChallenge - P is for Pallamallawa

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

I was captivated by the musical sounding word Pallamallawa so I had to use it in a post for the challenge. I had never heard of this town until I started researching Ethel Ellen Scifleet.

Ethel is descended from Adelina Benedicta, a daughter of Elizabeth Phipps. Ethel is my 3rd cousin once removed.

They were resident in Pallamallawa in 1936 when Ethel had to defend her husband.

If you have a connection with Ethel or the Fing branch please contact me. I would love to connect with further generations on this line.

I love the sound of that place name. Goodness knows if I'm pronouncing it properly. Gosh, Ellen was very courageous. Am enjoying your posts as usual.
