"nnew south wales". ... looks like our ancesters from the british isles loved thier native homeland so much that they brought so many place names with them ...like in usa..."new" york, just one example of many. we also have states named after monarchs like your "queensland"
i like new and different. descendent of wanderers and such. think that we could have been a tad more original in our naming of new homelands. :))
anyway...welcome to mqp..great place to visit w quilters from all over the world. share our talents, photos, stories and jokes. have fun!
Check out the spelling of my name. It is unusual and I recently discovered there are only about 247 women named 'Ethelda' in the U.S. When I googled it, I think there were some in Australia. It is 'old English'. My paternal geneology came from England. We can trace back to the 15th century.Not sure when they came to America, but the records look like it was in the late 1600's.Probably came as indentured servants and were in what is now the state of North Carolina.
A chef, huh. You'll have to share some good recipes with us.
