A family history: Chicka Madden

Uncle Chicka Madden’s son, Lee, began discovering some of the family history during a Native Title claim for Gadigal land. The Maddens came from Northern Ireland. Mitzie Madden is their earliest known recorded (1860) relative, and the first came to Sydney in 1871. There are many links to other families, through the Madden line.
