Coronavirus Catch Up

We hope that you are well and using some of the pandemic "down time" to delve further into the history and stories of your lacemaker families.


It was unfortunate that the Coronavirus pandemic forced us to postpone our planned April gathering at Stanley Park near Newcastle.

We plan to reschedule the gathering as soon as restrictions are lifted and when we feel confident to meet again.

Hope to see you there soon.

Roe Family

Joseph Roe, wife Janet Cunningham and their 3 sons were aboard Agincourt when it arrived in Sydney in October 1848. Together with many other lacemaker families they travelled to maitland where they settled initially. Later the family moved further north and settled in the Nundle area.

Thanks to the work of some family descendants, we now have a brief history of the family and an image of a family descendant in our Lacemakers of Calais Families section.

If you would like to publish some information about your family on our website, please contact us
