  1. I love looking at all your photos
    what a fantastic job you have done …I was so surprised to find a photo of my
    great great grandmother Mary Ann Willett sister to James Willett

    • Hi Karen,
      Thank you for your kind comments. Glad you like the photos. There are, I’m sure, many more out there yet to be uncovered.
      I will see if I can chase up a copy for you. It really is a great photo of Mary Ann, whom I know nothing about, like who she married etc.
      Did you know about the Willetts on Flinders at all?

  2. Hi Karen, can you tell us anymore about mary ann willett and where she came from ect ? What Heritage. Some family members have always said she was Aboriginal, but this does not look to be the case ?

  3. Hello Adam
    The Wittet children are not of aboriginal decent.
    Their parents were James Willet senior a convict from Stafford England and Anne Reardon also a convict from Clare Ireland.
