Since the production of “These Memories I Leave To You” in 2003, the descendants of other early settlers have made available fascinating materials about their own families. This information has formed a new patchwork quilt about our community. The materials were too compelling not to develop another book about Port Sydney and Mary Lake. Chief among these resources is a diary describing the trip from England to Port Sydney in 1869 and a captivating diary about life in the village in the 1890’s. The redoubtable Bill Clarke has generously provided his encyclopedic knowledge which brings these materials to life.
