In the formal announcement of her AC today, she's shown as "Professor Jill KER CONWAY". That suggests her surname is double-barrelled unhyphenated. -- Jack of Oz [Talk] 09:55, 10 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The Road from Coorain clearly states that the Governess was engaged for the education of her elder brothers only; she was frequently present but the lessons were not directed to her. Rather her early formal education was "by correspondence", with oversight from her mother.

The move to Sydney was not made to further the boys' education (or Jill's) as implied in the article; in fact, the boys had been boarding at a prestigious private Sydney school for some years before Jill and her mother joined them in Sydney.

It should be worth noting, and is hinted at in The Road from Coorain (by reference to the much more substantial and wealthy nearby station Clare), that Coorain was in fact sub-economic in size (as many if not most post-war soldier settler allotments were). Stations in this area of Australia are more typically of several hundreds of thousands of acres, rather than Coorain's mere 32,000. (talk) 07:45, 29 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
