Lorraine was born in Wollongong and is an accomplished speaker and historian. Her earliest Illawarra connections are from the 1820s (at Jamberoo). She is a descendant of a number of families with Northern Irish roots who came to Kiama Municipality through chain migration. Lorraine’s interest in history actually started with high school geography. The topic ‘Sequent Occupance’ sparked a desire to discover what her family members had contributed to this area over a period of time. Her research led to ‘Kiama court records 1852 to 1863’ and a paper in the Royal Australian Historical Society Journal in 2000. She wrote ‘Paulsgrove Illawarra 1825-1836’ in 2010. The owner of Paulsgrove was reported to be ‘a difficult and litigious character’. Her most recent published work ‘Scandal Slander and Interfering with Our Neighbours’ in 2016 is a collection of stories about early Illawarra. It has been described by Dr Joe Davis as ‘the kind of book that will no doubt ruffle a handful of local feathers – but most of all it will delight those who think that it is high time for local history to enter fresh fields and pastures new’. Lorraine is currently President of the Illawarra Historical Society and a member of the Royal Australian Historical Society Affiliated Societies Committee. In 2018 she was a joint winner of the Friends of Wollongong Library History Prize. She also appears on a monthly history spot on ABC Radio with Mark Matthews.Learn More
