The Rope-Pulley Family Heritage Association is a group of descendants from the two First Fleeters: Anthony Rope and Elizabeth Pulley.

Its aims are :
to be a central focal point for research into the descendants of First Fleet Convicts : Anthony Rope and Elizabeth Pulley
to consolidate information from the family lines and to share stories about our Australian heritage

You can read about Anthony & Elizabeths' lives on the Convicts and Farmers pages. Together they had 8 children, 6 of whom had families. The stories of these children have been included on the pages of this site.
