Victoria Peel has deep familial roots in Sydney’s East, stretching back to the Levey family, who came to Australia from London in the early 19th century. Some of them were convicts. But, most were simply escaping the squalor of Dickensian London. Unaware of these ties, Victoria traveled to London in the late 1960s, where she spent 10 years.
