On one of our many trips researching our family, back in 1982 my neice and I visited Barry NSW tracing our Morthorpe / Kable connections. Someone pointed us in the direction of these pair of cousins who generously told us what they could remember of our family and pointing out places such as where our family had lived and ‘Morthorpe’s Hill’ … which is behind them in the photo.
