“Barry, who lives in the same part of south-west Western Australia where Molloy did her work, has meticulously researched Molloy’s early life, as well as that of her husband, John Molloy.”

“…there is voluminous new material here for anyone interested in the Molloys as people, and in the early history of the early European settlement of the country south of Perth.”

“I am sure that anyone interested in early Australian history will find something of reward here, and Barry’s insights into the investigative process are of interest and may be of help to others contemplating such a project.”

“More than 600 ‘endnotes’ are the work of a true scholar.”
