BAILEY-WILLIAMS.– September 23rd, at the residence of the bride's parents, Foxground, bythe Rev. Luke Parr, Henry George second son of Mr. William Bailey, Gerringong to lsabella, youngest daughter of Mr. William Williams, of Foxground, The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 2 October 1885 p 2


General regret was expressed in the district when it became known that Mrs. I. Bailey, widow of the late H. G. Bailey, of Eureka, had died from the effects of shock received from burns through the explosion of a methylated spirit tin which she attempted to use in the lighting of a blow lamp connected with milking machines on the previous Sunday afternoon while the other members of the family were at church. It appears that the late Mrs. Bailey had never attempted to light the blow lamp before. She tried to light it with two matches, but as it did not burn she lifted up the methylated spirit tin to pour more spirit in, and the explosion tookplace. Her clothes were ignited and were practically burnt off her, although vain efforts were made by her two little grand children to smother the flames. So severe were the burns and shock, that she could not explain to her family and friends how the explosion occurred.

Born at Foxground, South Coast on September 6, 1860, she was the youngest daughter of the late William and Mrs Williams. She married Mr. H. G. Bailey who was a son of the late Mr. William and Mrs. Bailey, of Gerringong, on September 23, 1885, and went to reside with her husband at Kangaroo Valley. They resided there until 1900, coming to the Richmond in that year with their four sons and settled at Eureka.

The late Mrs. Bailey was known far and wide for her kindness and hospitality, and in cases of sickness in the district she was always ready to give a helping hand. In her home everyone was made very welcome.

The funeral was one of the largest ever seen in the district, and the casket was laden with beautiful wreaths from all parts. The remains were interred, in the Methodist por tion of the Clunes cemetery beside those of her late husband, who predeceased her seven years ago. A short service was held at her late residence and afterwards at the grave side by the Rev. A. E. Putland. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of W. Riley and Son, of Lismore. Deceased is survived by four sons, John and Theo (Eureka), William (Byron Bay), and George (Clunes). Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Wednesday 7 April 1926 p 4

JAMBEROO. ON Thursday the remains of an aged resident of this locality were committed to the earth. This was Mrs. Barber, the mother of our neighbour, Mr. William Barber, and, I believe, of several other brothers and sisters, two of the latter being Mrs. John Dudgeon and Mrs. H. Thompson. The old lady, who had reached her eighty second year, had remained generally healthy and vigorous for her age; but a few days before her death she me with an accidental fall, which caused something like a dislocation of this hip. She was attended, I hear, by Dr. Terrey, who soon saw, however, that the case was hopeless, and the old lady died on Wednesday last-at what hour I am not informed. She was buried, as above mentioned, on Thursday in the Wesleyan burial ground, the resident minister of her denomination officiating, and a considerable number of the neighbours attending at the funeral. The deceased had been for some time residing with Mrs. H Thompson. Reporter and Illawarra Journal (Kiama, NSW : 1887 - 1894)Saturday 15 October 1887 - Page 2

A Very sad and fatal accident, occurred one day last week, resulting in the death of Mrs. James Barnett, of this town.

Mrs. Barnett was tarring her fireplace, when it caught fire; in trying to put it out her dress caught alight, and before it could she extinguished she was burnt all over the lower part of her body. She was taken to Sydney, but medical skill could not save her life. Mrs. Barnett has left to mourn her loss a husband and a grown-up family. Great sympathy was shown by the large number who attended the funeral last Sunday. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW: 1900 - 1954) Friday 21 October 1921 p 6

How the Guilty Pair were Trapped.

SYDNEY - Tuesday.

In the Divorce Court to-day Thomas Barry sought separation from his wife on the ground of her adultery with one John M'Nab. Barry in his evidence stated that he was a fitter, and married respondent in 1887. They had one child, and lived happily for three years. M'Nab was a dairy farmer at Dapto, and served them with milk. From something told him his suspicions were aroused. On one occasion he found his wife and M'Nab sitting together on the road. When his wife returned to the house he asked her what it meant, and she replied that she was able to look after herself. In March last his wife asked him to go to Sydney to get goods, &c. Witness left for Sydney on Saturday. His wife knew he could not return from Sydney except by a certain train which he would not be able to catch till Monday. He left by a certain train, but got out at Bulli and walked back to Dapto, arriving at home at ll o'clock on Sunday night. He knocked at the door and called out the house was in darkness. His wife came to the door and said, “Where, in the name of God, have you come from?” He replied, “What's the matter?” and his wife said she was burning out mosquitoes. His wife was in her nightdress. M'Nab put his head out over his wife's shoulder to see who was there, and witness said, ” You scoundrel, I have been watching you.“ M'Nab then ran away in his nightshirt, and witness followed. M'Nab swam the creek and Barry did likewise. M'Nab afterwards returned to the house to get his clothes, but witness got home first and took possession of them No evidence was called on the part of the wife, and a verdict was given in favour of Barry with damages against M'Nab amounting to £250.

A grand old lady in the person of Mrs. Hannah Barton, died at her residence, Campbell street, Woonona last Thursday, aged, 88 years. The late Mrs Barton was born in Staffordshire (England) her maiden name being Street. Fifty-two years ago she and her husband and family of six- Alfred, Charles, Jim, Bert, Marie and Emily- came Australia.

They first went to Queensland, but after three months there they came to Woonona, where they have resided ever since. The late Mrs. Barton had always taken a keen and active interest in the Methodist Church and her younger days was a prominent church worker. Her husband died ten years ago last February. Mrs. Barton was a woman who devoted herself to her home and family. She was of a quiet unassuming disposition and had made a host of friends during her long, residence on the coast

She was taken suddenly ill about two months ago. A family of seven survive Messrs Charles, Bert, Tom, Wallace, Robert, and Misses Emily and Sarah. There was a private interment last Friday, Rev.

On Friday last as Mr and Mrs King Barton, were proceeding from their rcsidence at Cleveland into Wollongong, in a dog cart, and when a little to the south of Lindsay's public-henso on the Dapto Road, theywere met by a horse attached to a cart, galloping at a brisk rate, without any driver, and with the winkers off its head. Being unable to draw aside, the vehicle in which Mr Barton was driving was run foul of by the run away horse, and immediately upsetting both Mr nnd Mrs Barton being, of course, thrown to the ground. We are happy to say, however, that no great injury was sustained by either Mr or Mrs Barton. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 5 July 1864 p 2

BARWISE. — November 23rd, 1900, at her late residence, Balgownie, Sarah, beloved wife of George Barwise, aged 24 years.

I miss thee from my home, dear wife,
I miss thee from thy place;
A shadow o'er my life is cast—
I miss the sunshine of thy face.
I miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care,
My home is dark without thee,
I miss thee everywhere.

[Inserted by her loving husband, George Barwise.]

Through all pain at times she'd smile,
A smile of heavenly birth:
And when the Angels called her home,
She smiled farewell to earth.
Heaven retaineth now our treasure,
Earth the lonely casket keeps;
And the sunbeams love to linger
Where my sainted daughter sleeps.
[Inserted by her loving mother-in-law,
Sarah Barwise.]
Thy gentle voice now is hushed,
Thy warm, true heart is still,
And on thy young and innocent brow
Is resting death's cold chill;
Thy hands are closed upon thy breast,
'We've kissed thy lovely brow,
And in our aching hearts we know,
We miss our dear one now.

Death of Mrs. Baxter.

The death occurred at Moss Vale at 6 o'clock on Sunday, morning last of Mrs. Eliza Baxter, widow of the late James

Baxter, of Burrawang. The deceased lady was 66 years of age. She had for some time been a sufferer from bronchitis, but on Friday night she had tea with her daughter. On Saturday morning she rose as usual and went into the kitchen, but feeling unwell she went back to bed again. Later in the day Dr. Stevenson was sent for, but his medical skill was of no avail, apoplexy supervening. The deceased lady was born in Balsam, Cambridgeshire, and came to Auatralia 50 years ago. She first lived at Dapto, afterwards removing to Burrawang, where 20 years were spent, and where, some 15 years ago, her husband died at the age of 54 years. For the past 12 years she had resided in Moss Vale. The deceased was well known and respected throughout the district. She leaves a family of nine daughters and three sons, the youngest being 18. The funeral took place on Monday, the remains being interred in the Church of England cemetery at Burrawang, beside those of her late husband.

The death occurred during the week-end. at Sydney, of Miss Lenore Baxter, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. R. Baxter, who were at one time well-known residents of Wollongong.

The late Miss Baxter was a woman of very fine personal qualities, and during many years she devoted her life to attending to the welfare of her aged parents. She had not been in good health during recent years and the end was not unexpected. The sympathy of their friends in this part of the district goes out to the mourning relatives.

BEACH.—November 20th, at her residence, Champion Cottage, Brownsville, Dapto, the wife of William Beach, of a daughter. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Thursday 24 November 1887 p 2

Her husband William Beach came with his parents in 1855 to Dapto. He and his father were blacksmiths. He began his sporting career in a wooden tub on the Macquarie Rivulet and ended it as champion professional sculler of the world. Mullet Creek at Brownsville was sometimes called 'Beach's River' because it was there that he began his sculling career which culminated in the world championship.

When her husband died he was praised for his devotion to his late wife, who before her death had been an invalid for 20 years. His chief morners were his five sons and four daughters and Mr C Duley his brother in law.

We had the pleasure of visiting Mrs. Beach, at her home, in Dapto, today. We found her highly elated at the grand success of her husband. She intends to visit Sydney tomorrow, accompanied by her eldest son, a lad of 10, provided that he can be persuaded to face the sea trip, which at present he seems to have the greatest aversion to.

On Monday morning the sad news came to Kiama of the death of Mrs. Beith, wife of Dr. Robert Beith who, with her husband and family, was so long and favourably known in this district for some twenty years.

In all its charitable and progressive affairs while in Kiama, Mrs. Beith took an active part, and her kindly heart prompted many quiet deeds of charity and care for the sick and suffering.

As wife and mother, the love of her household centred about her and during the years spent here, she saw her children honourably and happily settled in life, her elder daughters married, Miss Lola to Mr. W. Stevens, of Pymble, Miss Janet to Mr. C. Edwards, of Gunnedah, and her sons, Doctors. Neil and Bruce, after service at the war, following in their father's footsteps, established in a medical career. Her youngest daughter, Miss Mary Beith, accompanied her parents after they left Kiama, on a European tour, extended for two years previous to coming back to New South Wales and making their home at “Waimanu”, Koola Avenue, Killara, where she has been a devoted companion and nurse to her mother during many months of illness.

The interment was on Tuesday, the motor funeral leaving St. Martin's Church, Killara, after a service held there at 10 a.m. for the Northern Suburbs cemetery. The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal (NSW : 1899 - 1947) Wednesday 3 June 1931 p 2

The late Mrs. Bennett was of a quiet retiring nature but many Woonona residents will remember her many kindly acts done in secret. Her only daughter died in 1913, and one son, James, survives her. The funeral was to the Presbyterian portion of the Bulli general cemetery on Tuesday. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 15 August 1947 p 7

A fatal burning fatality occurred at Woonona on Thursday morning, when Mrs. Jean Bennett, aged 75 years, was almost burnt to death. It appears that the old lady who lives by herself, was in the habit of getting up of a morning and lighting the fire to make a cup of tea, after which she went back to bed. About 9.30 Miss Mabel Barker noticed smoke coming out of the window of Mrs Bennett's cottage, and rushing to the house she found all the doors locked. With the assistance of Mrs. Capon they burst the door in, and going into the bedroom they found it full of smoke, and the bed in flames. The old lady was standing near the bed in a dazed state, her clothes being alight; she was also screaming at the same time. They immediately got her into the next room, when it was found that the clothes had almost been burnt off her. The flesh on the front part of her body was considerably burnt. The doctor and police arrived shortly after, and she was at once conveyed to Bulli Cottage Hospital, where she died 20 minutes after admission. It is supposed that deceased clothes caught alight she was making the fire, and going into the bedroom she lay down on the bed to try and put the flames out. The bed also caught fire, the bedding being burnt to a cinder. The old lady, owing to her advanced age, had become somewhat childish, and refused to live with any of her relatives, although her meals were always supplied by her daughter-in-law. Deceased was the mother of Mr. W. Bennett, and the late Mr. Thompson Bennett, who died in the Belambi coach smash. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 11 September 1908 p 2

Mary Susan Bennis, formerly Connor, petitioned, before Mr. Justice Simpson, to-day, for dissolution of her marriage with James Henry Bennis on the ground of desertion.

Mr. R. W. Fraser represented petitioner, who said that having been married to respondent on May 8. 1900 according to Methodist rites, she lived with, him at Mount Keira. The life was not happy. In February, 1902 he stayed at home a week, and said he was not going to work for anybody but himself, and went hunting round the house to see if there was a man there. At last he got the axe and said he was going to kill everything living unless she got out immediately.

“I got out.” said petitioner.
Mr. Fraser: Did he say anything after he ceased looking for the man in the house?—
Oh, I got tired of listening. Subsequently her baby got sick, and she sent a telegram, which brought him to her mother's house. She asked him would he make a home for her in Sydney, and try and be different. He replied he would not and in September she sued him for maintenance for the children, and she got an order by consent - for 6s. of which she had received only one Instalment. She saw him outside the court, and he declined to live with her as they could never be happy.
His Honor: Did he 'mention any particular man?— Oh, he was jealous of everybody.
Did he ever mention, any particular man? —Yes, one particular man. '
“When was that? — Just after we were married. It was his own friend, and he sent his wedding present back.
His Honor granted a decree nisi, returnable in six months. The Australian Star (Sydney, NSW : 1887 - 1909) Friday 4 December 1908 p 6

The death of Mrs. Thomas Bent, the wife of the local popular bowling green proprietor, in the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, on Monday last cast quite a gloom over the town, as the deceased was well known and extreemly popular with all sections of the community. The deceased had underpgone a very serious operation about a fortnight before, and until the last few days sanguine hopes were held for her recovery, but pneumonia set in and the patient was evidently too weak to fight against this dreaded complaint, and the end came on Monday after noon, in the presence of the her husband and son, who had been in constant attendance for the last week or so. Her remains were interred in the Presbyterian portion of the Bulli cemetery, and the funeral cortege was followed by a very large number of frienda and relatives. Rev. Hillman officiated. A husband and two children — Mr. William Bent residing in Sydney a Miss Janet Bent living at home- are left to mourn their very sad loss and the sympathy of the whole town is extended to the family in their bereavment.

Death of Mrs S. Bent.

The Sydney papers report the death this week at Balmain, of Mrs. S. Bent, wife of the ex-Mudgee school teacher. It is over 20 years since Mrs. Bent lived in Mudgee, but there are many in our town to-day who have very kindly recollections of this good lady. The deceased lady was always in a very delicate state of health when she lived in Mudgee, and her life is regarded as being more prolonged than what her Mudgee friends expected when she left the district.

By the death on Sunday of Mrs Agnes Bevan, of 16 Church Street in her 67th year, Wollongong has been left the poorer, in that it has lost one who by her self-sacrifice and goodwill towards others, has left a name in this community which the generations of time will never efface a name which will for all time stand out as a shining example to others.

Born at Adelaide, she was the youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Robertson. Her only surviving brother is Mr. Robert Robertson, of New Zealand.

39 years ago, she married her late husband, Mr. Frank Bevan, at Adelaide, and immediately afterwards came to Wollongong.

At that time the late Mr. Bevan was a builder and contractor and was engaged on the work of erecting the Church of England Rectory, and the Wollongong Courthouse. Subsequently he launched out into auctioneering business, and made a success of it.

Of the union there are two sons, Alexander Robertson and Arthur Frank, both of whom are honoured and respected citizens of Wollongong conducting the auctioneering and estate agency business founded by their late father, who was an alderman and mayor of the town, and one who played well his part in many local activities.

At the time of the memorable Mt. Kembla colliery disaster, the late Mrs. W. McKenzie was Mayoress of the municipality, but the late Mrs. Bevan succeeded her in that honor able capacity a little later, and to her efforts was due the organisation of the Kembla Disaster Fund. …. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 8 September 1933 p 6

She was very active community member.

BIBB.—June 25, 1923, at 54 Glover-street, Cremorne, Mina Janet Bibb, relict of the late John Bibb, daughter of the late William Pitt Wilshire, in her 84th year. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Tuesday 26 June 1923 p 8


The death of Mrs. John Bibb recently at the age of 84 years severs another link with the old pioneering days. A native of Sydney, Mrs. Bibb was the daughter of the late Mr. William Pitt Wilshire, whose father was Deputy Commissary-General in 1794. Her mother was the sister of the late Sir John Robertson. In 1867 she married the oldest son of the late Mr. John Bibb, one of the earliest architects and surveyors in Sydney.

Mrs. Bibb's reminiscences of the early days were most interesting, especially those dealing with the Hunter River district, where she lived with her uncle (Mr. James B. R. Robertson) for a number of years. Mrs. Bibb's five children, who survive her, are Mrs. T. C. Goodchild (wife of the rector of Christ's Church, Upper Armley, Leeds), Mrs. U. A. McLachlan (of Neutral Bay), the Misses May and Undine Bibb, and Mr. J. Wilshire Bibb (of Ryde).

Late Mrs. M. F. Bigg

A very estimable lady who had taken practical interest in good causes in the district in which she lived, Mrs. Mabel Florence Bigg, relict of the late Mr. Frederick Bigg, died at her home, Southridge, Rooty Hill, on January 1, after an Illness of about five weeks' duration, in her 80th year.

The late Mrs. Bigg was born at Kiama and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Robb, of that town. There she lived her youthful days and there she was married, in 1890, to the late Mr. Frederick Bigg.

In 1896 Mr. and Mrs. Bigg removed to Mount Vernon, between Liverpool and St. Marys, which was their home till 1919, when they went to Southridge. Mr. Bigg died in 1941.

Mrs. Bigg gave much of her time and energy on behalf of Church of England churches where she resided, and was a very active member of St. Marys branch of the Country Women's Association, of which she was a foundation member and vice-president.

She did much for the church at Erskine Park and did many acts of kindness unostentatiously that were the emanation of a generous heart.

Deceased leaves four daughters- Ruby (Mrs. E. W. Thompson), of Wentworthville, formerly of Littleham, St. Marys; Thelma (Mrs. Kenniff), of Hong Kong (at present at Southridge); Freda (Mrs. Boughton), Southridge; and Kathleen (Mrs. Rudd), Narrandera.

We regret to hear of the death of Mrs. R. J. Bigg, which took place in Brisbane last, Wednesday. Much symathy will be felt for Mr. Bigg (a brother of Mr. E. R Bigg of Dunmore), who for many years resided in this district and where he served his appreticeship in the Kiama “Independent.” office, afterwards purchasing the Berry “Register” successfully publishing that journal until he sold out to the present proprietors some eleven years ago, and went North.

Mr Bigg was a Miss Mary Whiting, of Shoalhaven, and leaves besides her sorrowing husband, a family of 10 children and 2 grandchildren to mourn her loss. She has suffered for some time from an internal-growth and took to her bed about a month ago, nursed tenderly by her daughters. Careful nursing and medical skill did not avail and she passed peacefully away, deeply mourned, by those to whom she had been a good wife and mother, and who had sorrowed for her pain and suffering. Sincere sympathy will be felt for the family on the South Coast in their sad bereavement. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW: 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 15 July 1914 p 3

The death occurred on Saturday at her residence, 188 Main Road, of Mrs. Jane Biggar, aged 73 years. She was the youngest daughter, of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Bell and was born at Bombala. Incidentally she was the last surviving member of her family. She lived in Wollongong some time prior to her marriage to Mr. Robert Biggar, but after their wedding they took up residence at Corrimal and have resided here ever since, over 45 years. The late Mrs. Biggar was held in the highest esteem by all with whom she came in contact. A home loving woman, she was nevertheless ever ready to lend a helping hand in cases of sickness trouble, and her sympathy and assistance were always appreciated to the fullest extent. Surviving members of the family are Jessie (Mrs. Wood) Ray and Ethel, all of Corrimal. The eldest son, John, was killed in action during the Great War, and one daughter Doris, died when aged about 3.

The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, when following a short service at the home, the cortege moved to Wollongong C. of E. cemetery. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW: 1900 - 1954) Friday 9 April 1937 p 14

The Bindon Divorce Case.

In the Divorce Court. Sydney, on Friday last Arthur Biudon, saddler and harness maker, late of Nowra, potitioned for divorce from Clara Jane Bindon an the ground of adultery with some person unknown. There was no appoearance on behalf of the petitioner: and Mr. Garland, for the respondent, asked that the petition should be dismissed, and that respondent might have a judicial separation on the ground of petitionor's adultery with a Mrs, Marshall, formerly a hotelkeeper at Parramatta,

The parties were married at Nowra on the 27th January, 1889, and the issue of the marriage was four children. In 1892 Mrs. Marshall went on a visit to Nowra, and it was there that the alleged intimacy took place, A daughter of Mrs Marshall gave evidence to the effect that her mother, on her return hlome, spoke familiarly of the petitioner, and that the latter had visited her mother both at Parramatta and at an hotel which the eobsequently kept at Ultimo, His Honor granted respondent a decree nisi for judicial separation, with custody of the ohildren.

Wife Living Apart from Her Husband
Under a Judicial Separation Order
Claims Maintenance.

A peculiar case of wife maintenance was beifore Mr. Payten. S.M., at the Newtown Police Court on Friday, when Clara Bindon of 1 Baldwin-street. Erskineville, proceeded against Arthur Bindon of Harris Park, for 'leave her, his lawful wife, without means of support.' Mr. Tanner appeared for complainant and Mr. H. A. Moss for defendant.

Mr. Moss admitted the marriage of the parties, but pleaded (1) that the Court had no jurisdiction, (2) res judicata and (3) not guilty.

It was admitted by the parties that on March 6, 1896, a judicial separation was granted in the Divorce Court on the complainant's petition, without applying for alimony, or any alimony being granted.

Clara Bindon deposed that she had two children, and had been some weeks without means ot support. Defendant was a saddler in the employ of Lukey and Nicol, and earned £3 per week. She had been earning her own living, but was at present unable to do so.

In reply to Mr. Moss, she stated that her youngest child would be 9 years old in May. Three months before it was born she proceeded against her husband at Nowra. The Magistrate there made an order for £1 per week. She did not issue a warrant or take any steps against defendant after the judicial separation.

Mr. Moss contended that as there had been a decree of judicial separation made by a superior court, the complainant must proceed to that court for alimony, and cannot proceed under the Deserted Wives and Children's Act in the lower court, and therefore the Court could have no jurisdiction.

Mr. Tanner submitted that as the section reads 'may grant alimony,' it is not mandatory, and therefore complainant could come to the lower court for maintenance. There was no Statute, he held, barring her from coming to the court.

Mr. Moss pointed out that, under sections 20 and 21 ol 36 Vic., No. 9, the complainant, having obtained a judicial separation, is a 'femme sole,' and is not a married woman within the meaning of the Deserted Wives and Children's Act, 17 of 1901.

Mr. Payten held that the Court had jurisdiction.

By agreement the case was postponed for further argument till May 13, at the Water Police Court. Truth (Sydney, NSW : 1894 - 1954) Sunday 1 May 1904 p 6

Mis. Jean Scott Bingle, widow of the late H. S. Bingle, passed away on Tuesday, 21st inst., at the home of her son, Mr. A. S. Bingle, 76 Buwiarra Road, Bellevue Hill.

Deepest sympathy is extended to the surviving sons and brothers. Dungog Chronicle: Durham and Gloucester Advertiser (NSW: 1894 - 1954) Friday 24 November 1944 p 2

It is not often we have to record a loss that will be more deeply felt than that sustained in the passing of Mary Binks from her home at Sedgeford, Berry. A native of the North of Ireland, she came to this country in 1855, at Gerringong. Ten years later she married Mr. Thomas Binks, of which happy union were born four sons, and seven daughters, of whom all but one survive. Mary Binks was a Mother in Israel. A saintly character, shedding a radiance that brightened the home and made religion attractive. The home at Sodgeford was a retreat for ministers and friends. Worship in the sanctuary was her delight, her last attendance being on Anzac Sunday, when Dr. Prescott conducted the service. Benevolence was natural to her, and expressed it self locally and in practical gifts from her husband and self to the Memorial Hospital and Dalmar Home. Information from the mission field, biographies of good men and women, “The Methodist” — all interested her. On the day of her “passing” she looked cheerfully forward. Preparation had been made in the days of girlhood, and the pledge given her Saviour never recalled. She entered into rest on Tuesday, 3rd May, surrounded by her dear ones. On Sunday, 15th May, an impressive service was conducted in the Berry Church by Rev. A. S. J. Harding, who preached from Job 14:14.

Mary Ann Matilda Binks

On December 4th, Mary A. M. Binks, wife of Thomas Binks, Cambewarra, was translated to 'The House of Many Mansions'. Some few weeks previously Mrs. Binks sustained an accident necessitating medical treatment in a local hospital, and later an operation in Lewisham Hospital, but though everything humanly possible was done she quietly passed away on the morning of December 4th. The news was received with profound sorrow in the Shoalhaven district, where, with her husband and family, she had resided for many years. Mrs. Binks was beloved by all who knew her, was of a quiet and retiring disposition, but strong in character, firm and uncompromising in her demeanour, and deeply sincere in religious' faith. For more than fifty years she made a constant and conscientious contribution to the progress of Methodism in the Shoalhaven Circuit, counting it a privilege -to serve the Church in whatever avenue she could. Her influence in the home and upon her family had in it that quality of 'abidingness' now brought to fruition in the Stirling character and Christian confidence of her husband, sons and daughters so sadly bereaved. Methodism, not only in this circuit, but in its wider spheres, mourns the departure of her late beloved sister and expresses its deep and sincere sympathy with the bereaved family.

The funeral service in the Methodist Church, Nowra, conducted by Rev. J. Fleming, assisted by Rev. G. S. Udy of Berry, and Rev. E. Graham, Presbyterian Church, Nowra, was a testimony to the high esteem in which Mrs. Binks was held; the church filled to overflowing, while the streets were lined with people silently expressing their sympathy in the passing of so fine a soul. Surviving our late sister are her husband, Mr. Thos. Binks, four daughters, Florence (Cambewarra), Mrs. Hooper (Albury), Mrs. Herne (Sydney), Mrs. Wilson (Cambewarra), and two sons, Mr. F. N. Binks and Mr. H. Binks, of Cambewarra.

The duly again devolves upon us of chronicling the death of another old resident, viz., Mrs. Caroline

The old lady died on Tuesday last, at 2 p.m., aged 81 years, and was buried on Wednesday afternoon in the Taree Estate Cemetery, alongside of the remains of her husband. A very large number of mourners attended the funeral — the service being conducted by Mr. Stephen Whitbread, the Rev. R. H. Phillios being absent at Forster. The deceased lady lived in ithis district for about 36 years, and has left 11 daughters and 2 sons — all of whom are married — and a very large number of grand-children. The Rev. W.

The surprise occasioned in this locality, on Tuesday last, by a well known resident, named Samuel Bishop, having out his throat was most intense. It appears that on the morning of that day the misguided deceased evinced no signs of insanity. By the evidence of his wife, however, it seems that he had been mentally affected for the last six weeks or so. On Thursday morning he had a great craving for drink, which was obtained for him. About 10 o'clock he had a shilling's worth of brandy, and shortly afterwards the same value of rum. He drank about half of the rum, when it would appear ho took it into his head to destroy himself. The deliberate way in which he went about the rash act is awful oven to think about It appears he went in front of a looking-glass so as to make sure work of making no piece meal of the horrible job. The following is a copy of the evidence taken at the inquest, which was held at the residence of the deceased, on Wednesday afternoon before the Coroner for the district, Messrs. W. Jenkinson (foreman), U. Hoard, J. I Holding, J. Crawford, and Owen constituting the jury.

Mary Bishop, wife of the deceased, deposed as follows: I have lived with my late husband in this residence about two years; we have been married nineteen years ; we have had seven children, five now living and two dead ; my husband was a coal miner ; when he was sobher he was good tempered, but when drunk was very quarrelsome latterly he has tasted nothing but about a pint of beer a day ; he worked regularly until last Friday; His health has not been very good since he returned from a visit to Maitland, about nine weeks ago his mind was uneasy ever since he came back; he said that when at …Bulli, 21st November, 1878.

On Thursday morning there passed away at Kiama in her 8lst year Mrs. John Black, as she was generally called, one of the finest women in the district, and one of the most saintly characters. The day previous, shortly before noon, she had a seizure, losing consciousness, which was not regained before her death about 8 o'clock the next morning, 23rd inst. Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Wednesday 29 January 1919 p 4

With the excep tion of a few years in Sydney, she had spent almost the whole of her life in the Kiama district, and had maintained an unbroken association with the Methodist Church for 8O years. She belonged to the well-known Kendall family, being a granddaughter of the Rev. Thomas Ken dall, the pioneer Anglican (missionary to New Zealand) and daughter of Mr. T. S. Kendall, of Barroul, Kiama. In 1867 she was united in marriage to Mr. John

Black, of Jenera Vale, Kiama, who predeceased her by many years. Mr. Black…Mrs. Black was always of a retiring disposition, finding her pleasure in her home and her church rather than in public activities… The Methodist (Sydney, NSW: 1892 - 1954) Saturday 15 February 1919 p 8

Another of the old and esteemed identities of these parts of the State, passed away at 11 o'clock on Thursday morning last— Mrs. Black, wife of Mr. John Black, of “Braeside,” Cootamundra, on the Kilrush road. The old couple had occupied a home in town, purchased by one of the sons, on the Government road, Warren's Sub., after Mrs. Black's health began to fail. Her end had been expected for days, but such is the vitality of these hardy old pioneers that she lingered on. Deceased was

86 years of age.

Originally, the couple came from the South Coast, near Kiama, and selected at Nubba. That was in the seventies. They went back to the coast, but only for a little while.

They then came to Murrumburrah and carried on dairying for some years, afterwards removing to Cootamundra.

During their long association with the district Mr. and Mrs. Black and family made a host of friends, who will deeply sympathise with the bereaved,

The maiden name of the subject of our notice was Mary Jane Buchanan. She was born at Dapto; Mr. Black at “Saddleback,” Kiama, which, the family owned. They married and came to this, district in 1876, selecting what, is now part of “Woodford” property. Later, about 27 years ago, they purchased “Braeside,” Cootamundra from the late Mr W. H. Matthews.

The family comprise Messrs G. B. Black, slock and station agent, Cootamundra, T. H. Black, Piillabooka; and W. H. Black, Wirrinya (also in the Forbes district); Mrs. S. R. Southwell (“Bessie”) Illabo; and Ernest Leslie, “Braeside,” Cootamundra. One son (Oswald) died.

Mr. William F. Buchanan, of “Newington,” Nubba, and Mrs. Neville Graham, of “Woodford,” Murrumburrah, are brother and sister of deceased.

The funeral took place at 3 o'clock on Friday afternoon, when the remains were laid to rest in the Methodist portion of the Cootamundra cemetery. Murrumburrah Signal and County of Harden Advocate (NSW : 1881 - 1947) Thursday 21 February 1929 p 2

A very pretty wedding was celebrated in Christ's Church, Rouse Hill, on Tuesday afternoon, when the Rev. Cuthbert Blacket, Church of England Minister of Mulgoa, formerly of Rouse Hill, was united to Miss Josephine Schofield, second daughter of Mr. Joseph Schofield of Rosenithon, Kellyville.

The church had been tastefully decorated for the occasion by Mr. George Terry, Mr. Pye and others; a triumphal arch of evergreens surmounting the entrance. A large congregation assembled at 2 p.m. to witness the ceremony, which was performed by the Rev. E. Hargrave, assisted by the Rev. Dickson Hudson. Mrs. Terry played the 'Wedding March,' and the choir sang apppropriate hymns during the service. The bride was given away by her brother, Mr. Harold Schofield, looked charming in a dress of silver grey silk lustre, trimmed with white satin (made by the Denison House Drapery Co., Sydney), and wore a white hat and feathers. Her three bridesmaids were — Miss Laura Schofield, the bride's sister, who was attired in cream muslin with white satin trimmings, and hat to match ; Miss Lily Schofield, cousin to the bride, who wore grey crepon, white crepe de chene bodice and white hat ; and Miss Ada Dargin, who wore cream silk lustre and hat to match. The Rev. F. Reeve, of St. Adrian's, Annandale, was the best man, and Mr.. Percy L. Schofield the other groomsman. After the ceremony was over the happy couple drove from the church door to the Blacktown station, whence they took train for Bulli where the honeymoon is to be spent.

At the Cootannndra Quarter Sessions recently before Judge Bevan, Samuel Jeffrey Blackwell, late bandmaster at Cootamundra, and formerly of Gunnedah and Manilla, was charged with attempting an offence against his daughter, aged 15 years and 11 months, and also with indecency assaulting his daughter. The jury brought in a verdict of not guilty on both counts.

Mary Ann Blackwell was charged with assaulting Samuel Blackwell and occasioning actual bodily harm at Cootamundra on December 25th last.

The evidence showed that the accused woman, who was ill-treated by her husband, shot him in the head with a pea-rifle. She was found guilty, with a strong recommendation to mercy on account of the brutal treatment meted out to her by her husband. She was sentenced to imprisonment until the rising of the Court.

Samuel Jeffrey Blackwell pleaded guilty to assaulting Mary Ann Blackwell, thereby occasioning actual bodily harm, and was sentenced to three years penal servitude. Manilla Express (NSW : 1899 - 1954) Saturday 4 April 1914 p 3

Mrs, BLAIR,–Nearly eight months ago, we recorded the death of Mr. Alexander Blair, leaving a wife and twelve children; and now it is our sorrowful duty to announce the death of Mrs. Blair, in her fortieth year. She gave birth to a child on Monday week, stillborn, The mother appeared to be doing well for a day or two, when inflamation supervened, and she died the following Thursday about noon, and followed by a number of sympathing friends, was buried at the public cemetery on Friday. Of the twelve children thus orphaned, the oldest is 17 years old, and the youngest about 15 months, At the time of Mr, Blair's death, a good deal of sympathy was felt for the bereaved famlily, and a subscription was made which amounted if we re member right-to about £80 (£83 ) This sum was placed in the hands of trustees for periodical payment to Mrs, Blair as neccssity arose, But-much to her credit be it said-not a fraction of this sum had she used. All that she had appropriated over her own and several of the elder children's earnings was eight shillings interest, which had accrued on the money. Mrs, Blair was, we believe, in every respect an estimnable woman; and this is so evinced in the training of her children that those which are old enough or nearly so to earn their living, or be useful, will be willingly taken and placed in good positions by respectaible families and the younger ones or most of them, will probably be taken by Mrs. Blair's brother, residing in Sydney, whose wife is now in Kiama for the purpose. A few friends, we believe, meet on Monday to make final arrangements, and it is lilkely the benevolent among us will be called on to make annual subscrition for the support and eduaention of thlese unfortunte children. Some will be ready to say, indeed some have already said, ” why not send the younger ones to the orphan asylum ” 'To this we can only say that, independent of the unsatisfactory manner in which the children from that institution generally turn out, Mrs, Blair had an instictive horror of such an altearnative and further, both herself and her feelings on this subject are so much respected, that friends in plenty are willing to undertake the responsibility of making what the deceased mother and themselves consider a better provision for the children than sending them to the asylumn, Since writing the above, which was crowded out of last issue, we learn that the meeting of friends referred to took place on Wednesday evening last,–J, Colley, Esq,, JPD. Finlaysson, G. Adams, N. Hindmnarslh, Major Black, and W. Clarke being present, as also was Mrs, Perkins, wife of Mrs, Blair's brother and aunt to the orphans, The oilers that had been made by a number of respectable families to take a child (in one case two), and provide for and educate it as one of their own, were fully stated, and in this way provision was malde for all but the youngest, But Mrs, Perkins said the children desired to go to Sydney, and she had decided on taking all but the two eldest boys, one at present working at the breakwater and the other at Mr. B. Medealf's, This, of course, decided the business, and the trustees of the money arranged to give Mrs, Perkins 10 s a week as long as it lasted and they wore satisfied it contributed to the interest of the children.

The remains of Peter M'Bride were conveyed to Appin, where an inquest was held. His widow identified the body as that of her late husband, and which was found embedded in sand within a few yards of where his boots were found at the time he was first missing. Owing to the drought the water of the creek had greatly fallen, and the attention of a person fishing was attracted to the spot by the number of crows hovering about: A verdict of death by drowning was returned.

Mrs Catherine Blanchard was only 40 yarrs of age, and may be said to have actually died from shock and grief at her beloved husband's tragic end, for they were a model couple.

Mrs. Board, of O’Connell-street, Parramatta, wife of Mr. W. E. Board (an old naval man and a well-known old Parramatta resident, and member of the Parramatta Bowling Club), passed away on Monday morning, May 31st. For some days her life had been despaired of, as we hinted on Saturday morning. Mrs. Board had been in indifferont health for many months, but the later serious phases of her indisposition only became marked a fortnight ago. The deceased was a native of Sidmouth, Devonshire, England; and was 76 years of age. She married (at Sidmouth) Mr. Board, then a dashing young man-o'-warsman — one

of the type it will be well if Britain can fall hack upon in the coming crisis — when 31 years of age. Sho had been 45 yours in this State. Formerly, she was a resident in the Wollongong district, where her husband (then a member of the police force of N.S.W) was stationed. She leaves three sons—two residents of Parramatta — and one daughtor (Mrs. Jas. Guyot). Mrs. W. Ashby, another daughter, a very highly-esteemed resident of Parramatta, died, it will be remembered by our readers, some few yoars ago during the outbreak of sicknoss here which carried off so many of our townspeople, and served in some slight measure to call belated aldermanioc attention to some of the needs of tho old town in matters of hygione. Mrs. Board's funeral — which was largely attended— moved to the Western-road Cemetery, Parramatta, on

Tuesday afternoon. The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate (Parramatta, NSW : 1888 - 1950) Wednesday 2 June 1909 p 2

Although her end had been expected for some weeks, general and genuine regret was expressed on all sides at the passing of Mrs. Elizabeth Boardman wife of our esteemed citizen, Mr. H. G Boardman, of Myrtle Creek, on Thursday morning of last week.

Deceased was 64 years of age.

Her illness extended over several years. About 6 years ago she suffered a stroke, which robbed this lady, of much of her former vivacity, but recovered sufficiently to get about, among her friends, although far from well. A few weeks ago she suffered a further attack, since when she had been con fined to her bed, and passed away as above stated.

The deceased was one of our most popular ladies and a very fine type of woman, who look part in all charitable works, and was a devoted adherent of the Catholic Faith. During her illness she received every possible care and attention from her loving husband and daughter, Miss Nellie Boardman. Rev. Corridon was constantly in attendance during her last illness and read the prayers at the church prior to the funeral and at the graveside, where there was a large gathering of relatives and friends. A mass of beautiful floral tributes were placed on the mound.

Deceased married twice, and of the first union two children survive — Lily (Mrs. G. Tarrant, of Lakemba), and Mr. James Hackney, of Auburn. One son, Private Harry Hackney, lost his life at the Great War.

Miss Nellie Boardman is the only child of the second marriage, and to her and Mr. Bert Boardman, and other relatives we tender our sincere sympathy in the loss sustained. The Picton Post (NSW : 1907 - 1954) Thursday 9 January 1936 p 2

WOLLONGONG, Friday.    

The death occurred last night of Mrs Mary Bode, aged 80 years, one of the oldest native born residents of the Illawarra district. For a number of years she conducted the Victoria Hotel, Wollongong, retiring some time ago, owing to advancing years. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Saturday 6 November 1926

Mary was the daughter of a large Fairy Meadow land holder, George Anderson, who had died in 1857. After their marriage Bode purchased 50 acres of land on the northern banks of Fairy Creek from his mother-in-law. The land would later become the site of one of Illawarra's most famous sporting venues, the Centennial Grounds and one of the region's best known and longest operating pubs - the Royal Victoria Hotel, later to be known as the North Wollongong Hotel….Bode and Mary hit the high seas almost immediately after their marriage, travelling to Europe and eventually his homeland, Germany.

Bulli-Woonona and district sincerely mourns the death of Mrs. Catherine Teresa (Kate) Boland, beloved wife of Michael Boland, and mother of Maurice, Margaret, William, Kathleen, Mary, Frank, Monny, and Adella.

Death occurred on Friday last.

A member of the Leeper family, the late Mrs. Boland was 61 years of age, and was well and favourably known right along the South Coast. Her health had not been good for the past 12 months.

Born in the Dapto district, her main object in life seemed to be to do good for others. A more devoted wife and mother could not possibly be found, while her activities on behalf of the Catholic Church - and other institutions will not readily be forgotten. No matter what church or organisation arranged a fixture her practical assistance was readily forthcoming. Nothing was a trouble to her, and her neighborly help in time of trouble or sickness has been a solace to hundreds. Her Christian spirit, her cheerfulness and charitableness created an atmosphere of goodwill wherever she moved, and her passing is a distinct loss to the community in which she has resided for so many years. Widespread sympathy is extended to the bereaved husband and family… South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 19 October 1934 p 9

Living Woodstock in 1903 Electoral Roll –domestic duties


The death occurred early yesterday morning at her home, “Woodstock,” Jamberoo, of Mrs. Catherine Booth. Although she had been in failing health for some time, the end came unexpectedly and was a great shock to her family and their friends through out the district.

The late Mrs. Booth was born in the Hawkesbury district, the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Stanbury, but, for a number of years prior to her marriage, had resided at Nowra. Her brother, James Staubury, was a great oarsman and was at one time champion sculler of the world. Mrs. Booth was married at Shellharbour to Mr. John James Booth, and made her home at Jamberoo, where she raised a large, family, and was beloved and esteemed by all who knew her. She was devoted to her children and her interests were centred in Jamberoo. In times of sickness and trouble, she was a sympathetic and helping friend, and many in Jamberoo will feel the loss of one who ever showed the finest neighbourly spirit. As a horticulturalist, also, Mrs. Booth had distinguished herself, and her flower and vegetable garden was her abiding hobby and joy.

Mrs. Booth leaves a husband and six children to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and mother. One son, Bernard, is living at home, and of the others, Robert is in Sydney and Victor at Castlereagh. Three daughters are Gladys, Mrs. Kendall, of Sydney; Mavis, Mrs. R. J. Booth, of Haberfield; and Dorothy, Mrs. J. R. Ingold, of Jamberoo.

The funeral took place this afternoon at the Jamberoo Methodist cemetery. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 5 July 1930 p 2

The late Mrs. Booth, who was laid to rest yesterday beside her husband in the Jamberoo Wesleyan Cemetery, had reached the ripe ago of 78 years. She came to this colony with her lhusband and family over 50 years ago, from the County Fermanagh, Ireland, and has resided in the Kiama district ever since. Her oldest son, Robert, had been out for some time before, and it was to him the family came. Only a short time after their arrival the husband and father, Hugh

Booth, was killed by being thrown from his horse, leaving the widow and her family of three sons and one daughter to fight the battle of life in their new home, and right nobly did she discharge that duty, for after 30 years of residence no one can say to day that by word or action did she ever do them a wrong. … The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 1 July 1892 p 2

Having reached the advanced age of 76 years, Mrs. Martha Ann Booth passed peacefully away at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. J. Johnston, Stokes' Avenue, Bulli, last Friday.

The funeral left the home of Mrs. Johnston at 4 p.m. on Saturday, when many friends assembled to pay last respects, the interment taking place in the Church of England section of Bulli cemetery, Rev. S. A. Turner officiating at the graveside, where there were some beautiful floral tributes.

Deceased was born in Kent (Eng.), and came to Australia with her late parents when very young, the parents eventually dying in New Zealand. Remaining in Australia, deceased was married at Forbes to the late Alfred Stephen Booth, who died at Forbes about 11 years ago. Mrs. L. Webb, of East Hills; near Bankstown, a sister of deceased, is the only surviving member of a family noted for longevity, and latter visited her sister at the time of the death. Members of deceased's own family are four sons and two daughters — Jack, Bert and Walter (Woonona), Sid (Wollongong), Ruby (Mrs. Baker, Wollongong), Nelli(Mrs. Johnston, Bulli). A much respected family, sympathy is being freely extended to them.

The late Mrs. Booth had lived many years in the Bulli district, and was well known; tall and always erect and smart in walk, she was an attractive personality, particularly in view of her age, and, in addition, she was blessed

With a cheerful disposition and jovial manner which won popularity for her in the various circles in which she mingled. The family have lost a mother of whom they had reason to feel proud, and her visits to the various family circles will now be sadly missed and memories of her will remain for ever, not only with the family, but also with those friends intimately acquainted with her.
