    Pixel Wrangler Left: Rosina (married at 16), Fanny (Fanny Bay in Darwin is named after her, Lizzie (very vivacious and wicked sense of humor) at the back and Madame Marie . Two girls are missing, Isabella (married twice) who was too young at the time this was taken and Marie junior who was born later. They had three brother, Jermore, Christoforo (died Borneo or Malsia, I forget which) and Frank (Christopher Lee's great grandfather). Amazing family.
