Cheryl Rogers gave a talk for the Swan Guildford Historical Society Monday 8 March 2021 at Guildford Town Hall, corner of James and Meadow Streets:
"Noted Swan Valley identity, researcher and published writer, Cheryl Rogers will outline the challenges faced by the mother of a large family, widowed soon after arriving in the Colony in 1831. Desperation led to theft, then punishment including a lashing, then imprisonment at Fremantle Round House. Cheryl will trace the family's ultimate survival through her work "On the Swan - sharing history through saved images and stories".
