The history of St John’s Bulimba is privileged to include Mrs Elizabeth Coxen.  Dr Judith McKay and Dr John Healy have researched and published a paper on Mrs Coxen which we are pleased to present here for your reading.  If you know or have any further information concerning her or her family then please contact us as there are still some gaps in the story, particularly where precisely their home was situated in Bulimba!
