Main Events

  • Name: Georgina Elizabeth ("Gina") Ferraby was also known as Georgina Elizabeth Slee.
  • Name: She was also known as Georgina Elizabeth Snelson.
  • Birth: She was born on 1 March 1953 in Soham.
  • Namechange:

    Her name was changed on 31 August 1960 from Georgina Elizabeth Slee to Georgina Elizabeth Ferraby ... she may have been named Georgina after her father. I understand that the name change was effected so that all the children had the same surname, Ferraby.

    I believe that Joan Ferraby never actually married George Slee, as he was already married and not divorced until circa 1972 from Mary Hawken, and Joan may still have been married to Robert Douglas Ferraby when Bill and Gina were born.

    I think though that Joan Ferraby was known as, and called herself Joan Slee - as that's what the Deed Poll says ... "known as Joan Slee". It does not say that this was a registered married name.

    If Mary Hawken did not agree to divorce George Slee until the '70s, it is hard to see how Joan could be married to him - I guess she could have had her name changed legally, perhaps by a prior Deed Poll, to Slee so as to appear to be married to him.

    After all this time, let it all fall where it may, as it does not matter any more, as we can see the relationships and there are no doubts about them and the main parties to these affairs are dead and gone. I have corresponded with Professor Peter Slee and we are in agreement.

    However, the Hawken, Slee, Ferraby and Snelson children might like to know about their half brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins.
  • Residence: She resided in 168 Main Street, Ely, Cambridgeshire, in 1973.
  • Immigration: She travelled to Australia on Sabena Airlines via Hong Kong, to Kingsford Smith International Airport, Sydney, Australia, about 26 January 1973.
  • Residence: She resided in Turramurra, Australia, from 1979 to 2011.
  • Death: After a long fight from 2008 with cancer, she passed away at about 1-20pm on 19 March 2011 in Greenwich Hospital, NSW, Australia.1
  • Misc: A Death and Funeral notice appared in the SMH on 23 March 2011.2
  • Cremation: The remains of Georgina Elizabeth ("Gina") Ferraby were cremated on 25 March 2011 in Macquarie Park, Sydney.
  • Obituary:

    A plaque was fixed to the burial spot in Macquarie Park, in the Olive Grove, #40 Row 5.

    The words were carefully chosen by John, James and Bonnie to try and describe her in the few words that would fit on the plaque. Accordingly the inscription is about her - and not a word about us - as it should be.
