On the opening of Dapto Railway Station

The station had been handsomely decorated for the occasion by two ladies of Dapto, Mrs. Evans and Mrs. Bovard, with palms, ferns, flowers, &c, while banners were displayed the whole length of the building, beating the inscription.   “ Welcome to Our Governor,” “Advance Illawarra,”   and “ Success to Our Railway, ” elegantly worked on  calico with orange leaves, flowers, &c. The whole presented a singularly gay appearance, which was highly appreciated by all the members of the party, and by none more so than by Lord Carrington, who took occasion to remark upon the beauty of the decorations, and requested that the fair designers might be introduced to him.

The late Mrs Catherine Boxsell.

On Monday of last week, at her residence, Kangaroo Mount, there passed away a resident of very long standing in the person of Mrs. Catherine Boxsell. Deceased, who exceeded by two years the allotted span, had been ailing for five years, and succumbed from cardiac failure and senile decay. Born in Tyrone, Ireland, deceased came to the colony with her brother, Mr Andrew Nelson, in the year 1856, being then 19 years of age, and settled at Gerringong, where she remained until her marriage eight years later with the late Richard Boxsell, when she removed , to Kangaroo Mount. Here she remained for some 15 years, until the death of her husband, 30 years ago, when she was left with a family of seven sons and three daughters, the youngest an infant two weeks old. Mrs Boxsell shortly after went to live, at Jasper's Brush, where she resided for six years, at the end of which she returned to Kangaroo Mount. The mortal remains were interred in the Wesleyan portion of the Gerringong cemetery on Wednesday, the Revs. Hopkins and Riley officiating at the grave side. Deceased leaves seven sons and two daughters, and a number of grandchildren to mourn their loss. The Shoalhaven Telegraph (NSW: 1881 - 1937) Wednesday 17 February 1909 p 12

Mrs. Elizabeth Boxsell, of Tilba Tilba, the subject of this short memoir, was 68 years of age on September 15th, 1906, and triumphantly entered the paradise of God on Thursday September 27th, 1906. Her parents brought her to Australia from England when she was about 10 months old. In after years she was married to Mr. Edward Boxsell, of Kiama, by the Rev. Samuel Wilkinson, and resided with her husband at Gerringong. They afterwards removed to Berry, and eventually settled at Tilba Tilba, where the family has lived for about 17 years.

An evenly balanced family of 6 sons and 6 daughters was the result of the happy union. All are living, and bear strong testimony to the rich blessing of a good mother's influence.

When quite a child she was converted to God in the Sabbath School, and re mained in the service of her Lord, being faithful unto death. Her life was an eloquent sermon, and the influence of her sweet sympathetic character was powerful for good. There was no trace of fear of death. Her end was peace.

Her last happy expression was 'I'm going home’. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 10 November 1906 p 10

On Monday, September 10th, Mary Ann Boxsell, the beloved wife of James Boxsell, Esq., of Cullinga, and youngest daughter of Mr. John Faulks, of Milton, who still survives at the advanced age of 90, passed to her reward. She had been ill with rheumatic gout for seven years, and during the last three had been bed-ridden. Her sufferings were at times very great, but she bore all with wonderful fortitude and Christian patience. When death came she welcomed it as the Angel of God bringing sweet release.

One of her very last sayings was that she saw Jesus in the room waiting to “receive her. She had full consciousness and soundness of mind to the very last.

Mrs.Boxsell was born in Berry's Yard, Coolangatta, Shoalhaven, on August 25th, 1838, and married to Mr. James Boxsell at Brundy, in 1856, by the Rev. S. Wilkinson. About a fortnight after marriage she was savingly converted to God, and advanced well in the Christian life ever after, tasting something of the sweetness of a sanctified heart. Family prayer was an institution in her home from the start.

She took her part alternatively with her husband, and when he was absent assumed the whole responsibility. She was a great worker, and a woman of good resources, being able to manage her husband's business and look after her children for three years while he was away at Cullinga preparing the home in which she resided for the last 20 years of her life. When first taken ill she felt it hard to leave her children, but as death drew near she said, “I can leave them all to God.” Of her 15 children 14 survive her. Several of these were away from home when their mother died, but none had left without a long private interview upon their soul's eternal interest. She had also admonished those about her many times, so that at the last when asked if she had any message for her children, she said, “Nothing particular.” After some hours of great agony and restlessness, there came a precious calm, during which she peacefully slipped away to be ever with the Lord. The Rev. J. Calvert and the Rev. H. Hutchinson (Pres.) conducted the funeral service in Cootamundra. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Thursday 4 October 1894 p 4

She married Mr. John Alexander Boyle, of Albion Park, 43 years ago, and had resided there until her death. Mr. Boyle had retired some few years ago from his occupation as a blacksmith.

The late Mrs. Boyle was well-known and very popular in Albion Park, a kindly neighbour and ever ready to help in times of sickness, until her own illness overtook her. A splendid wife and mother, she will be greatly missed by a wide circle of district friends. To Mr. Boyle and family and to the Burke family, the sincere sympathy of the district is extended in their bereavement.

Mrs. Boyle is survived by her husband and three sons, Mr. Fred Boyle (Albion Park), Mr. T. R. Boyle, of the Postal Department, Cessnock, and Mr. O. A. Boyle, of Coogee, who is well known along the South Coast as a courteous and efficient officer of the Postal relieving staff. Brothers and sisters survive in Mrs. D. Murphy (Shellharbour), Mr. James Burke (Gerringong), Mr. Andrew Burke and Miss Nellie Burke (Hurstville).

The passing of another pioneer occurred on Monday night last, in the person of Mrs. Catherine Boyle, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. W. J. Egan, Worrngee-street, Nowra, at the venerable age of 97 years. The late Mrs. Boyle, up to little more than 12 months ago was hale and hearty, hearing the appearance that she was likely to reach the centennarian mark, being of a bright and cheery disposition. In her early life she was truly a pioneer, assisting her husband who had taken up a selection at Redhead in the Milton district. Following on the death of her husband, with a young family, she continued to work the property successfully, until her family grew to manhood and womanhood ultimately seeking fresh fields and pastures new. Later she disposed of the property and came to Nowra to reside with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Egan. She was truly a Christian lady, one whose deeds will live long in the memory of those who knew her best, particularly by the residents of Conjola, where she lent many a helping hand in cases of sickness, when nurses and doctors were few in number in those parts. No matter what hour or weather conditions prevailed when her neighbors called for her assistance, especially in cases of illness, she was ever ready to travel long distances to afford relief.

Notwithstanding the heavy downpour of rain on Wednesday a large number of old friends from Conjola and that vicinity attended the funeral to pay their last respects to one they honoured in death as in life, whilst there was a very large circle of friends in Nowra and other parts did likewise. The mortal remains were laid to rest in the Roman Catholic portion of the Nowra The Nowra Leader (NSW: 1909 - 1939) Friday 28 July 1933 p 4

Following a severe operation, the death occurred at the Pines Private Hospital, Goulburn, on 27th October, of Mrs. Elizabeth Boyle, wife of Mr. Archie Boyle, of the Per. Way Department, Goulburn. The late Mrs. Boyle, was a native of Berry, South Coast, and had been a resident of Goulburn for about 25 years, being a prominent church worker. A family of four daughters and one son survive. The daughters are Mrs. J. F. O'Neill, Goulburn, and Misses Fanany, Irene and Molly, at home. The son is Mr. Joseph, better known as 'Darby’. At the 7.30 Mass on a recent Sunday in St. Peter and Paul's Cathedral, Goulburn, the Very Rev. Father CarhillAdm., referred to the sterling qualities of Mrs. Boyle. He remarked that she had led a noble life and had been a friend to many in time of sickness, and there was no one who would remember her more than the orphans, in whose interest she had walked many a mile, collecting and helping them in many ways. She was a member of the Sacred Heart Sodality. The funeral took place at the Kenmore Catholic cemetery, Goulburn. Freeman's Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1932) Thursday 8 November 1923 p 30

On Thursday last were interred in the Roman Catholic burial ground, Jamberoo the remains of Mrs. Edward Boyle, formerly Ellen McCarthy, who died at her residence in the township of Robertson on the preceding Tuesday. Mrs. Boyle was only twenty five years of age, and she was the mother of five children who survive her. The cause of death I understand to have been inflammation of the bowels: but her Illness had lasted only a few days; and all concerned were taken by surprise, when informed that her end was near. The case was regarded with an extraordinary amount of sympathy, as made evident by the large attendance - several hundreds, I understand,-at her funeral. Great numbers of persons from this district ascended the mountain and went all the way to Robertson for the purpose: and a large number of those who came from the other side of that place left the cavalcade at the edge of the Jamboroo Mountain. The parents of the deceased are, I believe, among the oldest living settlers in the neighbourhood of Jamberoo.

On Monday, September 29, there died at her residence, “Belvue,” St. Helena, one of Bangalow's oldest pioneers. Mrs. Lucy Ann Boyle. The late Mrs. Boyle was born at Dapto, South Coast, 86 years ago.

She married the late Mr. Edward Joseph Boyle at Robertson and accompanied him to the North Coast 60 years ago. They made the journey from the south by sea and landed at Ballina, from there the journey was continued by pack horse and bullock waggon, through the virgin scrub to the district now known as Bangalow. There the late Mr. Boyle selected land at St. Helena, the property, known as “Tyrone,” is still carried on by a member of the family. Having established themselves on the property, this pioneer couple the virgin scrub. After Mr. Boyle cleared the land he grew can then came dairying and the building of the railway line. They supplied farm produce to the men working on the line and shipped hand-made butter to Sydney in kegs, delivery being made by pack-horse. The late Mrs. Boyle suffered many hardships and trials in the early days, but her faith in God and her love for the land had its reward, for she lived to see the transformation of the North Coast from virgin scrub to a fertile district. Her late husband was the first president of the Bangalow A and I. Society, and the late Mrs. Boyle was made a life member of the society in recognition of her work for the society in its early days.

The late Mrs. Boyle is survived by one daughter. Miss Ellen Boyle (St. Helena) and eight sons, Wiliam (Murwillumbah). John (Billinudgel,), James (Casino). Michael Tully, Q.), Thomas (Lismore).

There are also 39 grand- children and nine great-grand - children. The pall bearers at the church and ccmetery were the late Mrs. Boyle's sons.

Murder of Mrs. Brace, late of Wollongong, by Her Husband.


On Wednesday, the 13th instant, between eleven and twelve o'clock a.m , a brutal murder was perpetrated in the township of Eden, Twofold Bay. The victim of this shocking outrage was a woman called Esther Brace, the wife of James Emanuel Brace, boot and shoe maker, who, with his family, about nine mouths since, came to reside ; here from Wollongong. Though generally at work, he was by turns addicted to drink, in which he was sometimes joined by the deceased. He had had some drink the night before, but evidently was not intoxicated at the time of the sad occurrence.

Having sent from the house two sons, of the age of 9 and 15 years respectively, he flattered his wife to accompany him in from a person's named Sheltz, where, it appears from fear, she had taken shelter. Deceased refused, but at last consented, with her infant in her arms, and a little girl of five years, the only parties present in the house. After they got in, both front and back doors were secured by Brace, and nothing more was heard or seen until the body of the deceased was discovered, a short time after, lying on the bed, with a wound at the inner angle of the eye, life being qnite extinct. There was a large quantity of congealed blood in the bed, and the sad spectacle was heightened by the infant, of about; 9 months, screaming frightfully, and almost suffocated in the blood of its murdered parent.

Mr. Walker, Chief Constable, ever active and ready, hastened to the tragic scene, and arrested the husband on suspicion. When taxed with the deed by another party he did not deny it, and said ' they had not quarrelled,' ' and ' there you see all.'

Dr. Bligh made a post mortem examination of the body, when it was found that she had received a violent stroke with some blunt instrument, supposed to be a hammer, breaking through the bone between the nose and the inner corner of the eye. That, in addition, there were two cuts of a sharp instrument, as if a knife had been twice thrust into the wound, penetrating the brain, and causing instantaneous death. This latter coincides with the account of the little girl, that, her father used a knife, on the dreadful occasion while committing the attrocious deed.

Her mortal remains were interred in the public burying ground, on Thursday evening, and an adjourned investition has been held before P. J. Murray, Esq., P.M., and J. P. Keon, Esq., when the prisoner was duly committed to take his trial for wilful murder, at the first Criminal Sittings, at Sydney.

(Burrangong Argus, Saturday last,)

An inquest was held on Thursday by Mr. S. Robinson, district coroner, and a jury of twelve, at the dwelling house of William Macansh, Nimby, near Murrumburrah, touching the cause of death of Daniel Bradford, whose body had been found in an adjacent dam. John Bradford, son of deceased, was present in custody of the police. Elizabeth Bradford deposed : I am the wife of deceased ; the dam where the body was found is about two miles from our residence; I have been married to deceased twenty-five years, and have nine children living; John Bradford, now in custody, is the eldest son; he is 21 years of age ; I remember Wednesday, 30th March, deceased was at Murrumburrah that day; he returned at sundown and was intoxicated; I met him at the door, and he said, “Come in and rub my arm;” I did so and put the bandage on it; he said, “Will you bring me some soup;” I did so, he was then lying on the bed; I said, “Father, there is the soup,” but he made no reply; I went into the washhouse, and after a little I heard him talking, and went in to see what the matter was; he said, “What in the world did you place Isabella — six years of age — at the window 'chiking' me for;” I said, “You must have been dreaming, as the child was in the wash- house with me;” he replied, “You are a d—– liar;” at his request I brought more soup which I told him was very hot; he said, “I don't care how hot it is, I will sup it;” as I was going out he said something which I did not understand, and upon asking him what he said, he replied. (The reply is unfit for publication.) I went away without further conversation; presently I heard deceased coming outside; he said to my son now in custody, “Jack, why don't you order me off the place;” the boy replied,

“I don't wish to order you or anyone else off the place; why don't you go in and go to bed?” he replied, “I have got no home, I won't stop here any longer;” he went away by the track a little way and returned, and appeared as if he was searching for for something he had lost; I heard him ask the child, “Isabella, where's your mother?” I said, “I am here; what is it you want?” I was frightened of him, and wished to keep out of his way ; I have been frightened of him for years, through his bad treatment to me; he said, “Where is my gun;” I said, “I have not the gun;” he said, “You know where it is;”' I said, “I do, but you shan't get it;” he then went towards the barn and to the straw stacks ; he came back and met me and my son — now in custody ; he said, “Where is the gun, if I had it you should not reign long;” I asked him to have some more soup ; he said he would have nothing more out of my hands ; he then went to where the others were yarding cattle, and I heard him say, “Don't milk any more cows for your mother;” he returned to the house and said to my son Thomas, “Go and bring my old horse;” the boy saddled the horse and brought him up; my son John said to me, “It is not safe to let him go away at night on horseback;” John took the saddle off and turned the horse out; deceased, missing the horse, said, “Who let my horse go;” my son replied, “I did, father, you are not going away, come inside and go to bed;” he re- plied, “You'll not stop me, I shall go away if I never come back again;” before this, when he was looking for the gun, he said, “If I had the gun neither you nor your mother would live long;” he said we were plotting against him; after that he said he would go away if he never should come back again; I saw him for the last time go past the stock-yard; I did not see him alive afterwards; William Croft, my son-in-law, came next day; I asked him to make enquiry for Bradford in Murrumburrah; I made no further enquiry until Saturday; I then went and enquired from everyone who I thought might know anything about him; yesterday my son came to me at about 11 o'clock a.m. and said there was a man in the dam; I thought he said “a mare in the dam;” I did nothing but went and told his brother John; they then returned to the house; they went away on horseback to see who it was in the dam; I was not alarmed because he often was absent before; John did not return, but Tom did, and said that John and Croft had gone to Murrumburrah to inform the police; I said to Tom, “Have you any suspicion that it is your father;” he said, “I can't say, as there is only part of the body up;” about 3 o'clock I went to the dam where I was sent for by the police;

I went and saw the body, and recognised it as the body of my husband, by his clothes, but not at all by his features; on further examination I knew the body by a mole on the right side; I saw it was the body of my husband; John was present at the time; I did not hear the police ask him if the body was that of his father; on the night deceased left John nor I did not go to bed, as we expected him to come back; I was frightened to go to bed for fear of our lives; after deceased had finally left, in about five minutes John went to the stock-yard where his brothers and sisters were; in about ten minutes afterwards I went to the stock-yard and found John with the others; I did not follow deceased; he has been a wretch to me and a terror to the children, and made me what I am, a cripple; it is a fact that every time he came home there was a fight; he has never come home sober since Christmas; about a fortnight ago he came home drunk and challenged my son to fight; they did not fight; John carried him in his arms and put him to bed; he came out again and challenged John and struck him, and the boy pushed him and deceased fell; I did not see him with a knife, nor did I see my son strike deceased with a stick; it was in the stable that the row was; I was not present, but I heard my son say, “Put that knife away;” deceased said, “I'll do nothing of the kind, if you come near me I'll run it through you” the hurt on his arm was not made then; when I next saw him his head was bandaged up; he got the hurt to his head in the row in the stable; his arm was hurt by falling out of the cart at Murrumburrah; I know nothing more about his death; after the row in the stable he told me he would purchase a gun and blow out the brains of John and myself; he purchased a gun from Mr. Barnes; that was the gun we concealed from him; last December twelve months my sons, John and Henry, had to bind their father with a plough reign; he on that occasion came home drunk and kept knocking me about for over two hours; they had to bind him in order to save me; I will swear that he has not been tied up since.

Thomas Bradford, fourteen years of age, son of deceased, deposed: I was at home when my father came home last Wednesday week; it was about four or five o'clock; my mother dressed his arm and gave him some soup; he then went to sleep; I next saw him when he was going away, about sundown; my mother was at the yard as he passed; I do not know where John was; my mother went up to the house, and, when I had finished milking, my brothers and I with my sisters went up to the house; this was after dark; I did not see my brother John follow, or go on the track beyond the stockyard after my father; I saddled the horse for my father, and John took the saddle off and hunted the horse away; after my father went away John followed him and returned; he told my mother that he saw father going along the road, and that he watched him; I heard this said by my brother to my mother outside the house; I was outside; after this we had supper, all of us together; mother told us to go to bed, as usual, and at the usual time; don't know if my brother went to bed that night; I discovered the body of my father in the dam yesterday morning; saw something in the dam and went and found the body of a man; I went home and told John and mother; they never spoke; John said, “Be off and get two horses;” I did so, and then Kemp, John, and I, went to the dam and looked at the body; it was about two yards off the bank; I went back and said to my mother that Kemp, my brother-in-law, and that John did not know whether it was father or not; mother said nothing; I was at home a fortnight ago when father and John had a row in the stable; I saw father draw a knife upon Johnny, and said, “I will stab you if you don't go away;” John had a stick in his hand, but I did not see him strike father; did not see blood on his head; I took no notice of his having a cloth on his head; I know the gun that father bought; did not see John take it out a week ago; did not tell the police that I had seen John with the gun; remember my father being tied up, but it was a long time ago; remember my mother telling me that John and she sat up all night waiting for father to come home.

To John Bradford: When mother came to the stock-yard you were standing there; I was milking while you were away after father; you had come back when mother came to the yard; when father and you had the row it was threshing time.

Senior-constable James M'Gee deposed:

Between 12 and 1 o'clock yesterday, 6th instant, John Bradford, the prisoner, and Henry Kemp reported to me that there was a man dead at Nimby dam — in the dam; I said to John Bradford “Would it be your father;” he said “I don't know, it might be;” I said “Would you not know your father's clothes;” he said the trousers were down, and he could only see a portion of the body and therefore could not identify it; there appeared to be, he said, something like a bag over the head; I then accompanied him to the place; on the way out he said “Have you been to Cootamundra lately, have you heard anything of the old man,” meaning his father; I saw the body some five or six feet from the bank; it was on its face, with portions of the back and thigh out of the water; there was a three bushel bag over the head and shoulders; the bag was marked in red lead “Adelaide” and tied round the waist with fencing wire to which a stone was attached that would be the weight of twenty or thirty pounds; the legs were also tied with fencing wire, and a smaller stone attached; I ripped the bag, and identified the body as being that of Daniel Bradford, by the nose and hair; the front of the head — the forehead, was broken in in three places; I said to John Bradford “Can you identify the body as being that of your father;” he said 'The hair and whiskers are like his, but the face is so much disfigured that I cannot identify it;” he said the shirt, vest, trousers, and pocket handkercheif were like his father's, also a tobacco pouch which was found in his pocket; these were only identified by him after I had pointed out the articles to him ; subsequently, in answer to me he said “I have no doubt that is him right enough;” I then sent for Mrs. Bradford, who came in about half an hour; I showed her the body, and she immediately identified it by the clothes and a mole on the right side; she said she last saw deceased on Wednesday, 30th instant; that he left at dusk and that she just could see the light of his pipe going down the gully; I then said to the prisoner,   in the presence of his mother that I would have to arrest him on suspicion of his having murdered his father; the loss was reported to the police last Monday, two days before the recovery of the body, by John Bradford; at the time he reported it he said 'Have you seen anything of the old man;“ I said I had not seen him for some time; he replied that he went away on foot on the previous Wednesday, and could hear nothing of him; he was previously away from home and no report to the police was made; I was aware that the family and deceased had been frequently quarrelling; when I heard the body was in the dam I had my suspicions; John Bradford had recently reported to me of serious quarrels between himself and his family; I heard him tell Sub-Inspector

Brennan that he had recently had a row with his father and that he had struck the father with a stick.

Sub-Inspector Brennan, of Young, deposed: I accompanied the coroner and jury to the dam where the body of deceased was found; I was shown some boot tracks by constable Downey ; they were about thirty or forty feet from where the body was found, on the top of the embankment; the tracks were at first indistinct, but on going further I found one which was more distinct — the print of a left boot; the impression showed a double row of nails, both in sole and heel;

I sent for Bradford now before the court, and told him to take his left boot off, which he did; I said, “Look at this footprint;” he did so, and acknowledged the resem- blance; I took his boot, and it fitted; he took a piece of stick and in my presence obliterated the heel-print; this mark was about twenty or thirty feet from where the body was found; the direction was going towards the spot where the body was discovered; he said, “I was here about last Thursday or Friday looking for a bullock; I saw where the wire had been broken down, through which a body could be admitted.

Conrad De Bello, watchmaker and jeweller at Murrumburrah, deposed: I knew deceased, Daniel Bradford well; on the evening of the 30th he was at my place; he was sober at the time, and his son, Tom, was with him; I saw him in town towards dusk, and he was then drunk; a fortnight or three weeks ago he had a cloth round his head; I asked him how he got the wound and black eye; he said, “My son gave it to me;” “I am afraid of my son, but he will find me a very tough one to kill;” some time previously he complained of his son having dragged him off a horse and broken his arm in two places; he said he was going to shoot his wife; this he told me repeatedly; I know him to be a very violent man; in fact he has threatened myself; I know the son, John, before the court; he has told me that he had struck a knife out of his father's hand, and given him one in the eye as well.

W. J. Barnes, J.P., residing at Murrumburrah, deposed: I know deceased, Daniel Bradford; he lately bought a gun at my place; on the 2nd instant Mrs. Bradford came in and said, “Have you seen Brad- ford, he has cleared out again, he got up at 3 o'clock on Wednesday night and went for the gun, but he did not get it, as I gave it to one of the boys to plant;” she said she did not think it safe to have a gun where he could have access to it; I remarked, “It is an extraordinary thing to have a gun at 3 'clock in the morning;” the night she spoke of I took to be Wednesday, the 30th ultimo; deceased was so violent that his family and any one else was afraid of him.

To John Bradford: I am assured that it was 3 o'clock on Wednesday night that Mrs.

Bradford mentioned. To Mrs. Bradford:

It was not between 5 and 6 o'clock on Wednesday evening that you mentioned to me that Bradford wanted the gun.

Dr. M'Dougall, of Murrumburrah, deposed to having made a post mortem examination of the body; he recognised it as that of Daniel Bradford; it had on trousers, shirt, and vest; decomposition was far advanced; there were no marks of violence about the body, but four were found on the head, in each of which the skull was smashed in; one was directly over the left eye; one about the root of the nose; one about the right temple above the eye; and one on the back part of the head, through which the brain was protruding; the wounds must have been produced by a blunt instrument, having no cutting edges; all the bones of the skull were completely shattered and moving on each other; believe the wounds were produced during lifetime ; any one of the wounds would be sufficient to cause death; during last month I had occasion to attend on deceased twice, professionally; the first occasion was for a cut on the scalp which deceased said was caused by his son hitting him with a piece of wood; on the second occasion he treated him for an injury to the elbow joint, which was not a fracture.

A verdict to the effect “that Daniel Bradford was murdered on or about 30th March, 1881, at Nimby, near Murrumburrah, by some person or persons to the jurors unknown” was given. Cootamundra Herald (NSW: 1877 - 1954) Saturday 16 April 1881 p 2

On Thursday, there passed ,way at the Kiama Hospital. Mrs. Sussana Bradley at the age of 63 years, relict of Mr. Donald Bradley.

The deceased lady was born at: Jamberoo, and was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Denis McCarthy, one of the early residents of the district, and a sister of Ald. J. J. McCarthy of Jamberoo. She was down on a visit from Brisbane, where from Jamberoo, she went to reside some 10 years ago, with her son George and daughter Pauline, recently selling out from a successful hotel business.

The late Mrs. Bradley was twice married, her first husband Mr. G. S. Williams.

The illness that ultimately caused her death was brought about by an accident which happened over 2 months ago, when a motor ran into tlhe sulky in which she, with a friend were driving, the impact throwing both ladies to the road. Injury received brought about illness that speedily necessitated skilled and careful nursing and she entered the Kiama Hospital. When complications arose, causing anxiety, Mr. J. J.

Ademia Bradley, a married woman, residing at Jamberoo, in the Illawarra district, has been committed for trial for concealing the birth of her child, which was smothered-but how, there has been no evidence to show. The body of the infant was found tied up in a bag, and concealed among some straw, by the daughter of the accused. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW: 1842 - 1954) Saturday 12 May 1860

Ademia Bradney had a child in 1860 and registered it under her name alone without listing her husband. At times this way of recording a child’s birth was done because the child was not the husband’s. He was known to have had another ‘wife’ with whom he had another family at the same time he was having a family with his lawful wife Ademia.

Recently at her home, near Malanda, North Queensland, the death occurred, suddenly, of Mrs. Bridget Brady, wife of Mr. Patrick Brady.

Rev. Father Doyle made a hurried trip from Atherton, and administered the Last Sacraments.

Deceased was born at Woonona, N.S.W., 72 years ago, being the youngest daughter of Michael and Elizabeth Gahan. About 18 years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Brady, with the younger members of the family, joined their elder son, Joseph, on the Atherton Tableland, shortly after he had returned from the Great War. Mrs. Brady had an edifying Catholic life, being an ardent member of the Sacred Heart Sodality for many years; and she was devoted to the Holy Rosary. She was particularly well known in the Malanda district, and held in the highest esteem. She is survived by her husband, two sons, and four daughters — Joseph, Gertrude, John, and Elizabeth (Mrs. Grove, residing in North Queensland), Molly (Mrs. L. Black, residing at Lakemba, N.S.W.), and Cecily (Mrs. C. Morgan, at Rose Bay). One sister (Mrs. Winifred Miller) resides in Sydney.

After some months of suffering Mrs. Braham, .a very old resident of Kembla Street, Wollongong, passed away yesterday. She was a woman of a quiet disposition, but nevertheless had built up for herself a wide circle of friends who morn her death. Born 71 years ago at Dapto, of which district her father, Mr.Ryan was a well-known resident; she resided in the district practically all her life, and led a most exempluary life, of which her love for her Church was a characteristic. She leaves a grown up family of which two well known footballers are members viz Messers Harry (Matey) and Jack. The other members of the family are Mrs McCloy, Mrs Moran (Bankstown) Miss Ivy Braham and Messers James and Bert. The remains will be interred in the Catholic Portion of the Wollongong cemetery this afternoon. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 4 July 1930 p 10

The other case was that of a child, a little orphan most kindly reared by Mrs. E. Braham of this neighbourhood. The child was walking near a large log which spans the Turpentine Creek at the corner of Mr. E. Vidler's farm, when in consequence of the rush of the water below, she lost her tread and fell in. She was swept some distance down the creek, and was clinging for a moment to a large boulder which happened to protrude above the surface, when she was observed by Mr. Braham, who was, fortanately, near the spot at just the time, and ran to the rescue. This was, undoubtedly, a hair's breath escape. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Thursday 2 May 1867 p 2

They were the second couple to be married in that church. For the first two years of her married life she lived with her husband at Dapto. She then moved to Bellambi, where she had lived up till the time of her death.

She was an active worker - for St. Alban's Church of England and had been a member of St. Alban's Mothers' Union since its inception.

After a service in St. Alban's on Friday, she was laid to rest alongside her parents at St. Augustine's cemetery, Bulli. Rev. Osborno-Brown officiated for the service and four of her sons and two grandsons acted as pall bearers.

The Triple Murder near Wollongong
Wollongong, Monday.

Our correspondent forwards us the following additional particulars of this outrage: -

The place where the murder of the man Brauen and his children was committed, as telegraphed you on Saturday, is situated about three miles from Wollongong, and named the Meadows It appears that the unfortunate man and his little children, a boy and girl, were at a neighbour's house till nine o'clock on Friday night, and Brauen was playing a flute, and appeared to be in excellent spirits. He left for home with his children, and the last that was seen of them alive was when they were about three hundred yards on their road. Next morning the neighbours were startled to find Brauen's house completely destroyed by fire - nothing but a heap of ashes marking the spot where the little home stood. It was an edifice of four rooms, and nothing of it remained, not even the adjoining kitchen and outhouses. The people anticipated that some disastrous calamity had fallen on the inmates, commenced a search, and in a few moments found the bodies of Brauen and his two children in the smouldering mass The spectacle was enough to repel any one, and it was some few minutes before anything could be done to release the bodies Nothing but the shape indicated that they were the bodies of human beings, as they wore burnt entirely beyond recognition, and were mere charred masses. On looking round about, a dog belonging to the place was found lying near, with its neck cut open us if with an axe ; this is evidently a weapon used to destroy the dog, as the axe was, found to be covered with blood and hair ; another one was found too with blood on it, but it had been put into the fire, as if to destroy the marks upon it The search of the premises continued, and at last a slate was found nearby, with some writing upon it, to the effect that Brauen himself had set fire to the house, and that no person else was to be blamed for it. The head of Brauen was seen in the fire, with a deep wound in it, as if done with an axe ; but the skull is not afterwards to be found; it was entirely consumed, and all that was left of the body was a part of the backbone and the ribs. Mrs Brauen was present, and was picking up the burned bones, and putting them in a box. She was away from home all the week, and Brauen was to appear at the Wollongong Court on Monday, in answer to her summons for separate maintenance. She was always jealous of him, and was in the habit of getting drunk. She had the dog with her in Wollongong on the night of the murder, but how the animal got back, was fastened up, and then killed, yet requires to be explained. The woman was not in bed in Wollongong until after midnight When I visited the spot there were no police in charge, and the axes were being banded about by the wife and other persons who were curious enough to inspect them The affair is evidently a murder, committed by the hand of an incendiary, when the unfortunate occupants of the house were asleep Yet there is some doubts as to whether the man and his two children were not first brutally murdered by some one who had gained ingress to the house, and then burned as in the manner above described. The deed, however it was done, has sent a thrill of horror through all the residents of the district.

The slate found at the burnt house, and referred to in my telegram this morning, is found to have the Statement written in Brauen's own handwriting, from which it is now thought or inferred that he designed and committed the awful deed himself… The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser 31 May 1877

OBITUARY. MRS. JOHN BRENNAN. Another much esteemed resident of Jamberoo, in the person of Mary Brennan (nee MacNamara) aged 84 years and relict of the late John Brennan, passed away to the great beyond last Monday, 11th instant, her husband having predeccased her about 12 months ago. Born in County Clare, Ireland, she arrived in New South Wales with her late parents, Mr. and Mrs. Michael McNamara about 60 years ago, original tenants of the estate of late Alick Osborne, at Clover Hill, Jamberoo, where they settled on their arrival in this State. About 12 months after deceased's arrival here, she married and then resided with her husband on a dairy farm adjacent to Johnson's Waterfalls, Jamberoo, carrying on dairying there for upwards of 20 years. Having then selected some land near-by at Bobs Flat, from the Government, they removed thereto, still following pastoral pursuits until their retirement about 10 years ago, still residing at the same place till two and a-half   years ago, when they both removed to a cottage at Curramore. After the death of her husband, deceased lived with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Collins adjacent. Mrs. Collins tenderly cared for and nursed her till the end, being at times assisted by Mrs. Elizabeth Brennan (daughter-in-law), and other kind friends to whom gratitude is expressed. Deceased and her late husband reared a family of 10, six of whom pre-deceased her, and the following survive: Mrs. Philip Collins, Jamberoo; Miss Margaret Brennan, Queensland; and Messrs. Thomas Brennan (Inverell district), and Walter Brennan (North Sydney). Those who predeceeased her were Mesdames Thomas McCarthy (Kangaroo Valley), D. McCarthy (Queensland), and Messrs. John, Henry, James and Michael Brennan. Deceased was a good wife and mother and did her duty to her family, reared them up in the way they should go and was beloved by them all. Her kindly nature, benevolence and help in times of sickness, when with early days it was difficult to obtain a Doctor will remain as an example of self-   sacrifice, for others to follow in her footsteps, and now she has reaped the reward. Her motto was: Turn to the world a shining face, There are sad hearts everywhere; The smile that you give may, help someone to live, Somebody's burden to bear.

The funeral took place on Tuesday and was largely attended. The remains were interred by the side of her late   husband in the Catholic portion of Jamberoo new cemetery. Rev. Father Malone preformed the last sad rites at the graveside The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 16 February 1918 p 2

An appeal is hereby made to the general public on behalf of a family in great need. Mrs. Brickwell, of Port Adelaide, has been left a widow with five young children, the youngest being only six months old. Her husband came to the colony under six months ago, and up to the time of his illness worked Under Government. He was taken ill with pneumonia, and after being nursed at home for three weeks was taken to the Adelaide Hospital; on June 21, and remained there till he died on Saturday last, August 1. Mrs. Brickwell is left without the means of living, and has no relatives in the colony nor any in other parts of the world who can provide for her. Dr. Toll certifies that she is in feeble health, and not able at present to do more than look after her children. While the Government may provide some of the necessaries of life in the shape of food, to the public she is obliged to look for help to provide shelter and clothing.

Those able to assist are requested to send donations to The Advertiser to Mr. W. Crooks, of Crooks and Brooker, of Port Adelaide; or to the Rev. J. Allen, Dale-street, Port Adelaide. Kent has been going behind for a few weeks, and I hope there will be an immediate and generous response. The Express and Telegraph (Adelaide, SA: 1867 - 1922) Wednesday 5 August 1891 p 6

Mrs. Thomas Brock, 69, died on Saturday night. She reside here for about 15 years. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Tuesday 12 May 1914 p 12

It is our painful duty to have to record the death of Mrs. Brock, wife of Mr. Thomas Brock, of Campbell-street, Wollongong, which took place on Saturday afternoon last. The deceased lady had been a sufferer for some years past, but about three weeks ago her condition became serious, and she gradually grew worse, the end coming at the time stated.

The late Mrs. Brock, who was over 69 years of age, came to Wollongong with her family about 15 years ago from Parramatta. During her residence in Wollongong the deceased had made many friends, who deeply regret her death. She was a lady of noble character, one who it was always a pleasure to meet and converse with.

She was the possessor of a kind disposition and was always ready to assist the cause of charity. The large concourse that followed the remains to their last resting place yesterday afternoon bore full testimony to the high esteem in which she was held by the residents of Wollongong. and district. The remains were conveyed to St. Michael's Church of England, and were met at the Church gates by the Revs. W. Newmarch and J. Poole, and the surplice choir. In the Church the funeral service was held, after which the remains were conveyed to the Church of England cemetery. At the graveside the last sad rites were conducted by the Rev. W. Newmarch, who made feeling reference to the life of the deceased lady. The late Mrs. Brock leaves a husband and grown-up family to mourn the loss of an affectionate wife and mother. To the sorrowing: family we extend our deepest sympathy. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 12 May 1914 p 2

With the death (briefly recorded in our last issue) of Mrs. Mary Ann Brooker, relict of the late William Brooker, at the age of 86 years, the oldest resident of the Kangaloon district has passed to her rest.

Mrs. Brooker, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Youman, was born at Dapto in October, 1859, and as a small child came to East Kangaloon with her parents, who selected the farm now owned by Mr. E. A. Brooker. Over sixty years ago she married Mr. William Brooker and came to live at “Forest Lodge,” Kangaloon, where she lived for the remainder of her life.

Mrs. Brooker, who was very highly respected and esteemed, took a very active part in the affairs of the district, and particularly in the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches. When East Kangaloon was part of the Presbyterian charge of Moss Vale the minister would ride or drive out from

Moss Vale on Saturday for the monthly service and was always the guest of Mrs. Brooker. She also took keen interest in the work of the Methodist Church at Kangaloon, and at the Golden Jubilee of the church some twelve years ago, she and the late Mr. Brooker were among the guests of honor. Theirs was the privilege of cutting the birthday cake at the reception, which also was the anniversary of their fifty years of married life.

The home of Mrs. Brooker was freely made available to ministers for lantern lectures on behalf of the Methodist Church Missionary Society.

At the switching on of the electric light—the greatest progressive step yet in the district—at Kangaloon nine years ago, it was fitting that Mrs.

Brooker should have the honor of officially performing the ceremony.

Mrs. Brooker saw the district grow from its virgin state to its present high standard. She always had great faith in it and its people. She made a host of friends who count it a great privilege to have been associated with this lady. The Southern Mail (Bowral, NSW : 1889 - 1954) Friday 26 April 1946 p 1

MARY  WADE and   JANE WHITING were indicted for feloniously assaulting   Mary Phillips , on the King's highway, on the 5th of October , and putting her in fear, and feloniously taking from her person, and against her will, one cotton frock, value 3 s. one linen tippet, value 2 d. one linen cap, value 2 d. the property of   John Forward .


Court. How old are you? - Eight years old.
Do you know what you are come here for, child? - Yes.
What are you come here for? - About my frock.
Will you tell me the truth about it? - Yes.
Do you know the difference between what is true and what is false? - No.
Let us try if we cannot go on without her. Call the next witness.


I am wife of   John Forward. When I came home from my labour, on Friday, I enquired for my child, and a boy told me he sent her to the Treasury for a bottle of water; that was the 5th of this month. I came home at half after five; I live in Charles-street, Westminster; the child was not at home.

Does she live with you? - She is my child; she is eight years old next April.
Is she a sharp child of her age? - Yes.
Have you taught her any thing? - She has been in the country from me four years; I fetched her home in August last.
Have you taught her to say her prayers? - Yes, she can say her prayers.
Have you taught her to say her catechism? - Yes. I sent the boy to look for her; he went, but could not find her: then I went myself. When I came to the door, to go out, I met her at the door crying, saying, mother I have been robbed. She had no frock, no cap, no tippet. I asked her where; she said at the privy, in the Treasury . And I asked her how she came home; she said, there was a gentlewoman came with a light, and two boys; then she knew where she was. The boy's name is   John Phillips.


I am brother to the girl. She went out, that afternoon, a little before five; my mother came home about half after five. The girl went out for a bottle of water; I sent her out: she had a frock, cap, and tippet on. I saw her no more, before my mother came home; I saw her afterwards, without her frock and cap.


I was standing at the bottom of New Pye-street, Perkins's Rents, where we live. At the bottom of New Tothill-street I met the two prisoners; and we used to go to the Treasury very often, to get two or three halfpence; and I asked them why they did not go; and the big one made answer, I will not go for this good while; and the little one said she would not. Then I asked them what they had done, and they said, nothing; but I promised them I would not tell; and they told me they took a frock, a tippet, and a cap, off a little girl, in the Treasury. And says the little one, (that is,   Mary Wade) here is the cap and the tippet; and she said the frock was at Mr. Wright's, in the Almonry, in pawn for eighteen-pence, and she had tore the duplicate; I did not see the duplicate. Then Wade said, I wish I had not not done it, to the big one; and the big one said, it was your own fault. Then the little one said, I was in a good mind to have chucked the child down the necessary; and I wish I had done it.

How long have you known these two girl s? - I have known the little one a twelvemonth, and the other about ten months. The little one was taken up before, for stripping a child, and chucking her into a ditch; only she was too young. This was the Monday evening, the Monday before last, between six and seven o'clock; it was the same night it was done.

Did they give you any part of the eighteen-pence? - No, Sir; I never had a farthing.
When did you tell of this? - The Saturday.
Who did you tell it to? - This gentlewoman; I went to her.
How came you to go to her? - They told me the child lived in Charles-street, at the shoemaker's; and there is but one shoemaker's in Charles-street.
Had you and they quarrelled between that day and the Saturday? - No, Sir; we did not quarrel at all.
How came you to go? - I only went because I thought the gentlewoman would have her property again, the child's frock, and cap, and tippet.
Had you no other reason for going than that? - No, Sir.
Who advised you to go? - Nobody advised me to go, and nobody told me; but the woman that took the cap off her head, that little one, robbed her of every thing she had; and Mrs. Matthews took the cap off the little one's head, and said she would ask the gentlewoman. Them two girls, and a boy that was in Bridewell, were telling of it; and Mrs. Drummond, Mrs. Matthews's mother, heard them talking of it; and when they robbed her, she went to the board to try to get a shilling or sixpence; and she tied a string about her door, and the little one owned she untied it and took her things; then Mrs. Drummond asked her where they were, and she would never tell; so she told me; both the prisoners, and another boy that is in Bridewell, told Mrs. Drummond themselves; and when the little one would not pay Mrs. Matthews a shilling, she took the cap off her head, and said she would tell this prosecutrix. I know Mrs. Matthews; she did not advise me to tell the woman in Charles-street.


I was getting things ready for washing, and I took a light down to the wash-house that joins to the privy; there were two children, one ran by me. I went into the yard to see if there was any water, and I heard a child cry, and I went into the privy, and there I saw a child stripped of her frock, tippet, and a cap. I asked the child how she came there, she told me a girl brought her there and stripped her; I told her I thought she knew them, and belonged to them; she said she did not; I let her out of the place, and told her to be a good girl and go home. There was a girl run out by me very quick.


I took the frock in pledge on Monday, the 5th of January, in the evening, between six and seven; I think it was a person like the tall prisoner, but I cannot swear positively to the person; it was pledged in the name of the shortest,   Mary Wade ; I do not recollect seeing any more than one, nor I cannot recollect the person.

Do you recollect the dress and appearance of the person who pledged it? - No.
A stranger to you? - Yes.
Are you a servant to Mr. Wright? - Yes.
What kind of a frock was this? - Here it is, a dark cotton.
Was it a young person? - Yes; a young person, and like the tall prisoner.
Look at   Catharine M'Killan; was it her? - No, it was not.
Was it a decent person, or a ragged person? - I cannot recollect; I could not recollect when I was before the magistrate.
Do you make a point of taking in every thing, from every body? - No; we ask them many questions when we take them in; it being a week afterwards, I could not recollect the person; I endeavoured before?
Court. In the way you carry on that business, it is a very dangerous one to the publick; your house may become the repository of all the stolen goods in the town.

  JOHN TAYLOR sworn.

I am an officer of St. Margaret's parish. This M'Killan, and this little girl, came to my house about a quarter past ten last Saturday night, and M'Killan telling me the story she has related, I said, are you sure you are right; she said I will shew you. I went to apprehend the parties. I went to the woman that had the cap, the corner of the court, just by where the other girl lived; I do not know her name; then I went to the lodgings of the little prisoner, thinking to get it out of her; there I found the child's tippet in the room; from there, the girl went along with me, and we apprehended the tall prisoner; and the little prisoner told me, that the big one wanted her to put the child down the necessary. I put them both into Bridewell. I went to the pawnbroker's that night, and saw the frock.

(The things deposed to.)

To the child's mother. I suppose your child at present is maintained by your husband? - Yes. They are all the things that she lost that night.
Court to the child. Has your mother taught you to say your prayers? - Yes.
And your catechism? - No; I cannot say my catechism.
You have told me, do not you know, the difference between telling a lie, and telling the truth? - Yes.
Will you be sure to tell me the truth, to tell me all you know about this? - Yes.
You know, when you say your prayers, you pray to God to take care of you, and to protect you? - Yes.
Well, and he will be good to you, if you speak the truth? - Yes.
And if not, you must expect to be punished? - Yes.
Now, remember, you are going to promise before God, that you speak the truth? - Yes.
Court. Give her the oath.
Now tell me how you lost your frock, and your cap, and your tippet? - John sent me to the Treasury-yard for a bottle of water, there I saw these two girls, and they asked me to fill the bottle for me, and so they broke it; and they took me into the necessary, both of them, and said they would get me another bottle, and bid me not cry; and the little girl pulled off my cloaths, and the biggest girl staid with the boy; and the little girl pulled off my petticoats, and put them on again; and the great girl staid till the boy came with the bottle of water.
Had you ever seen the girls before? - I saw the little girl sweeping the streets.
How often? - A good many days; almost every day I went to the Treasury.
Had you ever seen the great girl? - No.
You did not know her? - No.
Do you know either of them now? - I know the little girl.
When did you see them afterwards? - Not for a good while.
Did you ever see her again? - No.
Was you before the Justice? - Yes; and the big girl too.
Were the two girls that were before the Justice either of them that stripped you? - There was the little girl that stripped me.
Was that the same little girl that you saw before the Justice that stripped you? - Yes.
As to the great girl, you do not know any thing about her? - No.
How came you to let them strip you? - I did not know but they would give me another bottle; they bid me not cry; the little one did.
But you knew very well they had no business with your cloaths? - Yes.
Why did you let them? How came you to let them take away your cloaths? - I thought they were going to put on my cloaths again; and they ran away with my cloaths instead of putting them on again.
How came you to let them take them off? - I did not know they were going to strip me.
But you know they did take off your frock? - Yes; and they took off my two petticoats, and my pocket, but they put them on again.
That was all that they did to you? - Yes.
Nobody beat you? - No.
Nobody hurt you? - No.
Court to   Mary Wade . How old are you? - Going of eleven.
Are not you older than that? - No.
Have you no friends? - Yes.
Are they not here? - No; they live at Westminster; they was here to-day, only they could not come in to me.


I am going in fourteen: I have no friends.

Have you a mother? - Yes; she lives at Westminster, in Peter street.

-  WADE.

Are you the mother of that child? - Yes, I am indeed; she was ten years old last December. I have a husband, he is a drover.

Court. I hardly can ask you how your child has behaved; for I am afraid you are as much in fault as she is, by not taking proper care of her, and keeping her at home, and making her industrious; letting her run about the streets, was the sure way to lead her to the place where she is now; therefore I ought rather to ask you, what you can say for yourself then for her? - It is the other girl that induces her out, when my back is turned, to go a begging with her. I never brought her up to go a begging; all the butchers know me well. I have a great family of them.

I hope you will take better care of the rest, or else they will all come to the gallows.

Court to Jury. Gentlemen, I am distressed how to state to you, that this is a less crime than robbery; because, though there is no such violence as would affect the constancy of a grown person, or alarm them; yet the very circumstance of such a child falling into the hands of two strangers, young as they are, standing over her and stripping her, does seem to me to be equivalent to holding a pistol to the breast of a grown person; therefore, I cannot state it to be any thing less than robbery; the consequence of that is, that they must answer it with their lives. Therefore you are to consider, whether the fact is sufficiently established against both or either of these prisoners. Now, that this child was drawn away into this privy by somebody, and was there stripped of her cloaths, stands so clearly established, that there can be no doubt about it, upon the evidence of Mrs. Forward.

Here the learned Judge summed up the evidence, and then added -

For the sake of example, I cannot recommend to you, if you should be of opinion that the crime is sufficiently fixed upon them, I cannot recommend to you to say, it is of a less degree of attrociousness than robbery: the tender years of these persons may be a circumstance to be attended to in other views; but as to the denomination of the crime, I think it would be a dangerous thing to society, if you were to be induced, by any humanity, to lower the offence at all below the rank of actual robbery. So that if you say, that they are both, or either of them guilty, I think you must say they are guilty of the crime for which they stand indicted, robbery, and not larceny.


GUILTY, Death .

Tried by the first Middlesex Jury before the LORD CHIEF BARON.

Extensive information about Mary Wade and her family can be found in ‘Mary Wade to Us A Family History 1778-1986’ and more general information in ‘The floating brothel : the extraordinary story of the Lady Juliana and its cargo of female convicts bound for Botany Bay’ Siân Rees.

Mary Wade arrived in 1790 aged 11 years, she was sent to Norfolk Island shortly after when she was still not 12 years old. Mary had Sarah Wade on Norflok Island when she was not yet 16 years old. She had at least one more child in 1795 on Norfolk Island. She was back in Sydney by 1800. She had further children in the Hawksbury and Liverpool areas. Between 1825 and the census of 1828 her family moved to the Corrimal area and the census shows Jonathan Brooker, Mary (as his wife) and their children John, Mary and James plus Edward Harrigan aged 25 who was recorded as Edward Brooker.

In her obituary in the Illawarra Mercury 17/12/1859 it was claimed she had 300 living descendants which included 7 children (out of a reputed 21). No record of her marriage to either Harrigan or Brooker survives and none may have occurred.

The pioneers of Illawarra pass on. The latest is Mrs. Charlotte Brown, of Main Road, Corrimal. Her death occurred on December 27th, after a lingering illness. The deceased was a fine old lady, and although she had reached the age of 78 she always tried to do her best to help those in need. Her charitable acts in Corrimal should be emblazoned on the 'scroll of honour'—they were many. Her husband predeceased her about six years ago, but those left to mourn to the loss of a good and lovable mother are Mrs. Harvey, Mrs. Holbrow, and Messrs. Tom and Ralph Brown, all residents of Corrimal. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 4 January 1929 p 14

Ethel, who did housework for the Mawbeys, grew unhappy; after a dispute with Mawbey, Jimmy and his friends talked of taking up bushranging. Touchy about his colour, Jimmy was stung by reports that Mrs Mawbey and Helen Josephine Kerz, a schoolteacher who lived with the Mawbeys, had taunted his wife for marrying a blackfellow. With Jacky Underwood he confronted the women, who were alone in the house with seven children and Mrs Mawbey's 18-year-old sister Elsie Clarke, on the night of 20 July 1900. Jimmy alleged that the women laughed at him and Helen Kerz said: 'Pooh, you black rubbish, you want shooting for marrying a white woman'. Losing all control, the two, with nulla-nullas and tomahawk, killed Mrs Grace Mawbey, Helen Kerz, and Grace (16), Percival (14) and Hilda Mawbey (11); Elsie Clarke was seriously injured. After this her husband and his brother went on a fourteen-week, 2000-mile (3219 km) rampage, terrorizing a wide area of north-central New South Wales.outlaw and killed several other people.

Governor was survived by his wife and son; on 23 November Ethel Governor married Francis Joseph Brown by whom she had nine more children. She died in Sydney on 31 December 1945.

Wedding Bells at Wollongong.

IN the Wesleyan Church, Wollongong, on Wednesday afternoon, April 12, a very pretty wedding took place, in wnich Miss Flora M'Donald (daughter of Mr. D. A. M'Donald, of ” Montrose, Wollongong,) whose rich voice has been heard at concerts in all parts of the district for some years past, and who has gratuitously assisted at many a charitable movement, was married to Mr. A. E. Brown, late of Wollongong branch E. S. and A. Bank,: and present manager of the Byron Bay branch. The church was very prettily decorated, and for some time previous to the ceremony was crowded with friends and well-wishers; many others, who could not find room in the church, remained in the street outside. The choir (which Miss M'Donald has so long been connected with) sang the 'Wedding Hymn, and also the beautiful prayer ” Heavenly Father.“ The wedding march was played by Mr. A. J. Walker, who presided at the organ. The bridesmaids were three little nieces of the bride, and Miss Dent (Watson's Bay), who received handsome gold brooches and dress rings from the bridegroom. Mr. A. C. Brown acted as groomsman, and the Rev. J.S. Austin officiated. The bride, who was prettily attired in violet, carried a handsome bouquet, the gift of the bridegroom, and was given away by her futher. . The wedding breakfast was laid out in the schoolroom, a large number of friends being present. A programme of toasts, comprising “Bride and Bridegroom,” ” Bride and Bridegroom's Parents,“ ” The Bridesmaids,“ ” Absent Friends,“ etc., were proposed and responded to. The happy couple received many congratulatory telegrams from various parts of. the district, and among the large number of presents were gifts from Messrs. Brown Bros. (Sherbrooke), Miss M'Donald, Mrs, Baly (Dapto). Miss Rowe (Bathurst). Mrs. and Miss Dent (Watson's Bay), Mrs. and Miss Parsons, Mrs, and Miss Hewlett, Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Brown (Bulli), Mr. Bennett (Kangaroo Valley), Mr. and Mrs.. Hughes, Mr. and Mrs. Roper. Mr. Arch. Campbell, M. P., and Mrs. Campbell, Mr. Alex. Campbell, M. P., and Mrs. Campbell, the Rev. and Mrs. J. S. Austin, the Rev. and Mrs. G. O. Cocks (Homebush), the Rev. Thomas and Mrs. Davies, Mr. and Mrs. QnongTart (Sydney), Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Wiseman, Mr. and Mrs. A. Gregory (Sydney), Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Clements, Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Rees. Mr. and Mrs. H. Collings, Mr. and Mrs. H. M'Donald, Mr. und Mrs. W. H. Rees, Mr. and Mrs. D. B, M'Ewen (Sydney), Mr. and Mrs. Lyons (Sydney). Mr. and Mrs. Tuckfield (Bega), Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Stevenson (Sydney), Mr. and Mrs. Veness (Bathurst). The happy couple left for their new home at Byron Buy.

Prior to the wedding Miss M'Donald was presented by the members of the choir with a valuable marble clock, suitably engraved, and also a silver cruet from the trustees of the church, as a slight recognition of her valued assistance in church music. In addition to the above names mentioned us having given wedding gifts, are Mr. A. S. Boulton, Solicitor; Mr. G. A. Park, Dentist (Sydney) ; Mrs. W. H. M'Lelland (Homebush) ; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Campbell (Bangalow) ; Mr. and Mrs. G. O'Conuor (Billinudgel) ; Mr. and Mrs.. M. M'Lean (Byron Bay); Mr. F. W. Lance (Lismore) ; Mr. and Mrs. T. G. Hewitt (Lismore.)

Telegrams congratulating the happy pair were received from all parts of the colony, among them being one from Quong Tart (Sydney) to the bride, as follows:-” A that's mine is thine lassie. So at kirk she no more frowning cried. ' Na ! na ! it winna do.' Heartiest congratulationa from we two. Auld Lang Syne.“ This, it need hardly be said, caused no small amount of amusement at the wedding breakfast. Northern Star (Lismore) 6 May 1899

The death of Miss Henrietta Brown last Sunday in her 85th year, removes a bright personality from a wide circle of relatives and friends, and also a member of one of the pioneering families of the lllawarra district.

The late Miss Brown was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Brown, of West Horsley, where she was born. When her parents later moved to Sherbrooke, she resided with them, later returning to this district.

She possessed a very happy personality and was a general favourite with all who knew her. She was particularly fond of children, who, in turn were attracted to her. When residing at Sherbrooke she taught in Sunday School, and later conducted a Sunday School at Yallah for many years.

Death occurred after a short illness at the residence of her brother-in-law, Mr. H. R. Brooks, of Yallah. She is survived by six brothers, Messrs. Tom, Will, Fred (Queensland), Alfred (Moss Vale), Bertie (Exeter) and Arthur (Murwillumbah) ; two brothers, Messrs Jim and Edward, and two sisters, Mrs. Brooks and Mrs. Tom Musgrave, predeceased her.

Following a short service at the residence, conducted by the Rev. Godson, the remains were laid to rest in the Church of England cemetery, Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 20 October 1939 p 11

I am writing regarding my great great great grandparents.  Their names were Samuel Brown and Sarah Ann Pond.  They apparently lived in Wollongong from around 1837 (their marriage) until around the early 1850’s when they moved to Moruya.  I obtained this information from the Moruya Historical Society although I have not been able to find any record of their marriage on the NSW BDM site. 

I know that Sarah came to Australia aboard the ‘David Scott’ and arrived here on 30 October 1834.  She was a bounty immigrant – her passage was paid for or subsidised through the London Emigration Committee.  This Committee was set up from 1833 – 1837 to encourage women to come to the ‘Colonies’ as there was a concern that the lack of females would create anarchy.  Apparently men outnumbered women 20-1.  Sarah obviously wanted a better life – I find it incredible that these women came to an unknown country to no job and possibly no prospects on a dangerous sea journey of 2 months.  I know that she was employed as a general servant by Mrs Parsonage, Gloucester Street, Sydney but at a very low wage of 6 pounds p/a so she probably looked for work elsewhere – possibly going to Wollongong.

She had 4 children in Wollongong but again I can’t find any record of their births – only the ones in Moruya.  The children were Joseph Brown, Robert Brown, William Brown 1846 and Mary Ann Brown 1850.  George Henry was born in 1855 and Helen in 1857 in Moruya.

Sarah died from childbirth ‘convulsions’ on 18th November 1857 and she is buried at Long Swamp Moruya.  Her daughter Helen also died.

I find it sad that this is how her life ended – she was obviously an incredibly courageous pioneer woman.

Sarah’s parents were John Pond and Sarah Syms but again I haven’t been able to find out anything about them as yet.  Sarah was born in Middlesex, England C1817.

I also don’t have any information regarding Samuel Brown.  I think he may have been a convict.  On his death certificate his birth details and parents names are unknown – very frustrating!  He died from drowning due to inebriation in 1869 in Moruya.

I hope this is useful for your research.  If you can provide me with any further information I would greatly appreciate it!

Kind regards

One of the oldest and most esteemed residents of Port Kembla, Mrs. Helen Matilda Brunning, passed away at her residence, 17 Kembla Street, Port Kembla on Monday last last, aged 72 years. She was the relict of the late Charles Henry Brunning and dear mother of Frederick, Alfred, Rupert (deceased), Herbert (Port Kembla) and Walter (Five Dock)

Mrs Brunning was a sister of Thomas and Christina Nicholson and Isabel (Mrs O'Meley)

The Brunning family was amongst the first seven families to reside at Port Kembla, namely, J. Patterson, P.O. (drove the mail coach) Thomas Downie, P.E. Reick, Bill Harris, Jim Burke and G. Sinclair,

About that time there were 300 aboriginese residing at the Port.

The late Mrs. Brunning had resided 42 years in Port Kembla, her first home being on a site where the Steelworks Hotel now stands.

Mrs. Brunning opened the second boarding house in Port Kembla, and her husband laid the first stone on the Port Kembla breakwater

She attended the first service (C.of E.) in a building known as the Kembla buiding, near the old jetty. This was found to be unsuitable because of the dirt, coal-dust etc. Then for five months the services were held for months the services were held in a room at Mrs Brunning's boarding house. The first Church of England was the opened on its present site and the services were conducted by Rev. D'Arcy Irvine. Another minister at the time was Rev. Ralph Hunter, while Mr. Thomas Hughes was the religious instructor.

In those days there was no road to Port Kembla. Horses and sulkies were driven through Tom Thumb Lagoon. Pedestrians had to swim.

Later a three plank footbridge was built, and some of the piles still stand. There were no shops at the Port.

Mr. and Mrs. Brunning entered into business in 1914.

Mr Brunning passed away 18 years ago and one son, Rupert, died 14 years ago.

On Wednesday the funeral cortege moved from St Stephen's Church of England for the C. of E. cemetery, Wollongong. Rev. Clive administering the last sad rites. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 5 June 1942 p 12

POLICE COURT.-At the instance of the. Honorable the Attorney-General, Susan Carter was summoned before this Bench on a charge of having concealed the birth of a child by secretly putting into a box the dead body of the said child. The case had been previously gone into before the coroner, but the papers - were returned to the Bench for a fuller enquiry. The   following is the evidence taken before Messrs. Robb  and Hindmarsh :-George Young being duly sworn saith : I am a senior constable in the Police Force of   New South Wales, and am stationed at Kiama ; on Wednesday, the 15th June last, Robert Bryen of   Omega Retreat, Gerringong, reported to me that there was a child found dead in a box under a bed in a room,in his house ; he said the child belonged to one of his  servant girls ; I immediately reported the matter to the coroner ; an inquest was held on the body by   Mr. Fry the coroner ; I saw a girl named Susan  Carter in the house, I asked her if the child was hers, and she said it was. Robert Bryen, being duly sworn, saith: I live at Omega Retreat, Gerringong ; I am a farmer ; my wife called me before I went into the  yard; on tbe morning of, I think, the 16th of June last, to see what was in Susan Carter's room ; I went into the girl's room, and I saw a dead child ; Susan Carter is my servant girl my wife rolled up the dead child in a cloth, and put it into the box under the bed where she first found it ; Susan Carter was not in the room at the time ; she was in the stockyard ; I did not tax Susan Carter with being the mother of the child, but I went and milked ; when I was finished milking I reported the matter to senior constable Young ; there is only one room between where I and my wife sleep and the room where Susan Carter sleeps ; I heard no noise during the night ; she was sick to the best of my knowledge about the 15th of June last ; it was at night time ; she got out of her bed during the night and went to the fire  in the kitchen; the kitchen might be  about six or seven yards or better from her bedroom ; the child was a newly born infant, about a day old, I suppose ; there did not appear to be any marks of violence upon it; it appeared to have been born a healthy child. Eliza Bryen, being duly sworn, said I am the wife of Robert Bryen, and live at Omega Retreat, Gerringong on Wednesday morn- ing, I think, the 16th June last, one of my servant   girls; Jane M'Canney, called me to her bedroom ; she asked me to look at a box under the bed and see what was in it. I asked her to look ; she said she would not I looked myself ; I found a bundle and I opened   it, and found a dead baby ; I went back to my own bedroom and I called my husband out to see the baby ; I put it back into the box again, and went to the yard and milked ; my husband, when he saw the dead baby, said he would report it to the police ; he did do so ; I asked Susan Carter what she would do with the baby in the box ; she said she would bury it that night ; she did not deny that the child was hers ; I did not notice any marks of violence about the body ; I did not ask Susan Carter whether the child was hers , I had a suspicion it was hers ; before the baby was born she denied most positively that she was in the family way ; afterwards she admitted it ; I don't know whether the   child was born alive, it looked to be a fine little baby ; Jane M'Canney slept in the same bed with Carter, Jane M'Canney, being duly sworn, said : I am in the service of Robert Bryen, who resides at Omega Retreat, Gerringong ; I know Susan Carter before the Court, we were both servants in Mr, Bryen's family during the month of June last ; we slept in the same room and in the same bed ; I recollect Susan Carter being ill on a Sunday night about a month ago, I cannot recollect the day of the month ; I recollect an inquest being held before Mr. Fry, the coroner ; I gave evidence at the inquest about the birth of Susan Carter's child ; it was nearly a week before the inquest that Susan Carter was sick ; I did not render any assistance in giving birth to the child ; on Tuesday she was sick all night, she got no sleep ; she did not communicate with me, but I suspected she was in the family way ; on Wednesday morning she got out of bed before I did ; she dressed herself; the bed was not soiled ; it was dawn ; she told me to rise, I did so, and I left the room, but Carter did not follow me ; I was absent about a quarter of an hour ; when I went back she was sitting on a chair, near the bed, with a bundle in her hands ; I did not know what was in the bundle ; I left again and she followed me ; and we both went and fetched in the cows to milk; she stopped to milk, and I came back to our bedroom again to see what was in the bundle ; I found the bundle in a box under the bed ; I pulled the box out but did not open the bundle ; I went for Mrs. Bryen ; she came and lifted up the bundle and asked me to open it; I refused; Mrs. Bryen opened it, and we both saw a baby ; the baby was white, and appeared to have arrived at maturity before birth ; it was a nice looking baby, and had no marks of violence on it. Mary Lees, being duly sworn, saith : I live at Gerringong ; I know Susan Carter now before the Court ; I was called on, I think, the 16th of June, by Mr. Bryen and Mr. Young to deliver Susan Carter, of a birth ; I went to Mr. Bryen's house and I saw Carter on the sofa in the kitchen ; she was very sick ; it was about eight o'clock at night ; I then delivered her of the after birth ; I examined the child I found the baby the same as other babies it was a beautiful baby; I never handled a nicer baby : I am a nurse and midwife I have been so for twenty-six years ; I have more experience as a midwife than any other person in this district ; I did not know anything about the birth of Carter's child till I was sent for on the 16th;   when I first saw the baby it was in a box, and under the bed in the bedroom ; I don't know whether it was Carter's bedroom ; I have been in Bryen's house before ; Carter is not a married woman ; she is about nineteen years of age ; Bryen's house is a wooden one the wall which divides Mrs. Bryen's room and the servants room is made of paper and calico, and any noise or crying could be heard throughout either room the baby was dead, and I believe it was born so. The depositions having been read over to Carter, the Bench asked her in the usual form if she had any thing to say she replied that she had not. She was then committed to take her trial at the next Quarter Sessions to be holden at Wollongong, on the 16th September. Bail allowed.

The death occurred at Coopers Plains near Brisbane on Thursdaylast of Mrs. E. J. Bryen. She arrived in Australia with her parents, Mr. and   Mrs. Cochrane, in 1850 coming from   County Tyrone (Ireland). They settled on a property near Shellharbour when dairying was in its infancy. Her first marriage was to Mr. Lindsay, who   some years later was accidentally killed, leaving two sons, Thomas Lindsay, of Queensland, and John Lindsay, of Mullumbimby. Later, Mrs. Lindsay married Robert Bryen of the South Coast. When the rush set in for the “big scrub' in 1881, Mr and Mrs. Bryen with their family were amongst the early selectors at Pearce's Creek, travelling by bullock dray.

Th family later moved to the property above Bangalow known as the Garvan Estate, which they managed for a number of years before purchasing property at Cooper's Shoot. The late   Mr. Bryen, who died in 1904, was a typical pioneer of the old school. The late Mrs. Bryen was noted for her hospitality and was ever ready to give a helping hand to those in need. The remains were brought by train from Brisbane to Bangalow on Friday night   and were buried next morning; alongside her late husband. Canon Seymour   conducted the burial service in the Memorial Church and at the graveside, when many old pioneers and residents assembled. The surviving members of the Bryen family are Mesdames Wilkins (Toowoomba), Sharpe (Sydney), Miss Bryen (Brisbane), and Messrs. James (Nimbin), David (Kyogle) and Andrew (Brisbane).  Northern Star (Lismore, NSW: 1876 - 1954) Thursday 27 August 1931 p 9

(From “Murrumburrah Signal.”)

It is with deep regret we chronicle the death of Mrs. Jane Buchanan, wife of Mr. William Buchanan, of Newington, Nubba, which sad event took place on Friday last.

The deceased lady, who was 76 years of age, was born at Fermanagh in Ireland, and came to Australia with her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Musgrave, at an early age, her people settling at Dapto, on the south coast.

She was married to Mr. Buchanan, of Dapto, 52 years ago. In 1914, with her husband and family, she came to this district and settled at Newington where she resided up to her demise.

The late Mrs. Buchanan had always enjoyed perfect health, and it was only during the last 10 days that she experienced any serious illness. She had a most lovable and charitable disposition and was held in the highest esteem by all who came in contact with her.

Besides a sorrowing husband, she leaves four sons and one daughter to mourn the loss of one most dear to them. The sons are Messrs. Percy (Cootamundra), Fred. (Murrumburrah), John and Charles (Newington) and the daughter, Miss Florrie Buchanan (Newington). She is also survived by three sisters and two brothers, viz., Misses L. and F. Musgrave (Dapto), Mrs. Cullen (Figtree), and Messrs. J. W. Musgrave (Wollongong) and George Musgrave (Sydney). Her parents and three brothers pre-deceased her.

The funeral, which was a large and representative one, took place on Saturday afternoon last, to the Methodist portion of the Murrumburrah Cemetery, Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 3 February 1928 p 11

Mr. Buchanan was born in the county Tyrone, Ireland, in 1805. When 34 years old he and his young wife, formerly Miss Henderson, of the same native county came to this colony in the emigrant ship Earl Grey. Landing in Sydney in the early part of 1840, they proceeded to Windsor, where they remained for six months; after leaving Windsor they directed their steps to Fairy Meadow where they lived for a number of years ; and subsequently they resided for longer or shorter periods in various parts of the Illawarra district, where with the assistance of a family of three sons and two daughters, they carried on farming and dairy pursuits on on extensive scale. For several years during Mr. Buchanan's residence at Dapto he was a member of the Municipal Council of that Borough and discharged the public duties of that office with credit to himself and advantage to the rate payers. Some six or seven years ago the family - Mr. Buchanan, his wife, two sons and two daughters removed to Omega, where Mrs. Buchanan soon after died. Her death had a very depressing effect upon Mr. Buchanan and seriously affected his health. However, after some time he rallied, recovered his natural buoyancy of spirits, and, having handed his business matters over to his sons, William and John, he had sufficient time at command to accede to the wish of his fellow rate-payers and accept of a seat in the Gerringong Municipal Council, which he was soon compelled to vacate on account of ill health. About twelve months ago Mr. Buchanan was made aware that he was the subject of cancer in the face and that the terrible malady had developed to such an extent that a cure was out of the question, Slowly but surely the disease did its work and put an end to Mr. Buchanan's earthly career at 5 o'clock p.m, on the above date.

Mrs. Catherine Buckley.

Deep regret was expressed on Tuesday, February 21, when it became known that Catherine Buckley, wife of Timothy Buckley, of Goonellabah, had passed away at the age of 53 years. The news, however, was not altogether unexpected, as Mrs. Buckley had been in declining health for a long time. Mrs. Buckley was a fine type of a charitable Catholic woman, and her ready wit and jovial face will be sadly missed in many at home in Lindenvale where she was ever ready to go to a neighbour in trouble. She received the last rites of Holy Church from Rev. Father Sullivan, he being a constant visitor, along with Very Rev. Dean Quinn and Rev. Father McGuire, throughout her illness. She was born In Illawarra, and came to the Richmond River with her husband and young family some 20 years ago. The Funeral was attended by a large concourse of mourners from all parts of the Richmond River. She leaves a husband and 13 children to mourn their loss, also a brother, Mr. W. Fitzgerald, of Rous, and three sisters — Mrs. Morrisey, of Rous

It is my painful duty to record the death of Mrs. Daniel Buckley. She died on Monday night last, after a brief illness of a few days. Previously she enjoyed excellent health, being in the prime of womanhood, only 30 years of age, and much beloved by a large circle of friends for her many amiable qualities.

Mrs. Mary Buckley, a member of one of the best known and highlyrespected families of the Illawarra district, died at her residence, 'Milton,' Holmwood-street, Newtown, recently, fortified by the last rites of Holy Church. In her last illness, she was attended by the Rev. Father Martin. P.P., and was constantly visited by the Sisters of Mercy and Sisters of St. Joseph, of which community her only surviving sister (Sister M. de Chantal) is a member. Great consolation was given to her family in the knowledge that she was blessed with a holy and happy death. After the death of her husband, the late Timothy Buckley, she came to reside in Sydney, where her many friends from Albion Park and surrounding districts will always remember her kindness, for her home was always open to them, and many pleasant meetings were spent there.

A family of seven is left to mourn the loss of a devoted and loving mother. The sons are: James (Q.), Daniel, Timothy, and Patrick (Sydney); and the daughters are Mrs. F. Condon (Shellharbour), Mrs. M. Rodgers (Ashfield), and Miss Annie Buckley.

The remains were taken to St. Pius' Church, Enmore, where a Requiem Mass was cele brated on the Saturday morning by the Eev. Father Martin, after which the funeral left for the Central Station, en route for Albion Park cemetery, where the inter ment took place beside her late husband.

Mrs. Lily Burcher-82 Years Young
(Bv 'Margaret')

The other day I had the honour and pleasure of taking morning tea with a very charming lady who is 82 years young. She is Mrs. Lily Ada Burcher, of 384 Kembla Street Wollongong.

She came to this district 70 years ago, so imagine the changes she's seen.

Mrs. Burcher is naturally proud of the fact that she had the first Sunday School in Port Kembla. Her father was the teacher and the only one at the time of the Berkeley School. As a matter of fact, the Berkeley School opened for two days then closed and then Mr. Kem ish (that was her father's name), would take over Port Kembla School.

Mrs. Burcher was baptised in a stream that came down the side of Blackheath.

In 1891 Mrs. Burcher had a trip home to England. In those days all the big ships called into Wollongong Harbour, loading coal at Brighton Beach. This was of course the hub of the place, trains in those days coming only as far as Waterfall.


Mrs. Burcher spoke with pride of her trips in from Berkeley to Wollongong with a horse and buggy. She also did a lot of riding— side-saddle of course. Cycling was a pastime too.

On trips from Berkley they always brought some biscuits, as the trip took from 9 a.m. till 2 p.m.

Mrs. Burcher, at 82, dressed in a tailored skirt of grey with a blue Cardigan, her short, wavy, grey hair delightfully framing her pink-cheeked cheery face dispels all fear of old age.

She dispensed tea graciously in a gracious room where lilies and carnations graced the tables.

Miss Lily Burcher, Vicepresident of the Younger Set of the C.W.A., is a daughter of this delightful lady to whom hundreds of people say 'Many Happies' again for her 82nd birthday llawarra Daily Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1950 - 1954) Saturday 9 December 1950 p 6

Mrs. John Burgess

Mrs. Agnes Napier Burgess, wife of Mr. John Burgess, of Bonville, died in Coffs District Hospital early on Saturday morning, at the age of 81 years.

She and her husband and family are very old and well-known residents of Bonville, where tliey have lived for the past 32 years.

Deecased was a daughter of the late Mr. John McKinnon, of Numba, Shoalhaven, where she was born. She was married to Mr. John Burgess at Wollongong in the seventies and went to Unanderra to reside, shifting later to Campbelltown.

Coming to Bonville 32 years ago, deceased became postmistress there, and held the position until a few years ago, when she handed over the duties to her daughter. If she had lived till 17th December next, deceased and her husband would have celebrated the 60th anniversary of their wedding. Mr. Burgess is now 88 years of age.

Although deceased had a stroke about three years ago, which impaired the good health she previously enjoyed, she was comparatively well until about a fortnight ago, when she tripped and fell at her home, breaking her hip. This mishap was too much for her at her advanced age, and was primarily the cause of her death. She was brought in to Coffs District Hospital, but despite all that could be done for her she sank away gradually.

The body was taken to the Church of England and reposed there until Sunday, when the funeral was held at the Bellingen Cemetery, where a son was buried about 14 years ago. The land on which the Church of England stands at Bonville, by the way, was part of the Burgess property and was a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Burgess. Rev. C. If. Egerton conducted the service and Mr. C. H. Everingliam carried out thlie funeral arrangements.

Besides the aged husband, a grown up family of two sons and five daughters survive to mourn the loss of a kind and devoted wife and mother. The sons are Mr. Frederick Burgess, of Bonville, and Mr. John. Burgess, of Sydney. The daughters are Mrs. J. Latta (Sydney), Mrs. A. Turnbull (Bonville), Mrs. Bert Turnbull (Bonville), Mrs. Bert Cassidy (Bonville), and Miss Kate Burgess, of the Bonville Post Office.

There are also 31 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Coffs Harbour Advocate (NSW: 1907 - 1942; 1946 - 1954) Tuesday 19 November 1935 p 2

The death took place on Sunday last at Mascot (North Botany) of a very old and highly esteemed resident of this town and district, in the person of Mrs. Burless (wife of Mr. William Burless), at the age of 77 years, the cause of death being senile decay. The deceased lady was a native of Kent, and arrived in Australia in the year 1839 with her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. William Vidler, and with them and other members of the family settled in Jamberoo at what is known as the old Vidler homestead. Mr. Burless came from Cornwall in 1840, and settled with his people at Mount Pleasant. The couple were married some 60 years ago, and after residing in Kiama for upwards of 40 years, removed from the district, but eventually returned a few years ago, and for some little time kept a fruit and confectioner's shop in Terralong street, which they afterwards disposed of, and removed to the metropolitan district. The late Mrs Burless was a niece of the late Mr. John Vidler, one of the old patriarchs of Methodism in this district, and a sister of Mrs. Wyldeman, senr., of Jamberoo, and was truly beloved by all who knew her -too much cannot be said of her self- sacrificing qualities, loving disposition and goodness of heart, she being ever ready to do anybody a good turn if it was in her power to do so. By her aged husband and family of eight (5 girls and 4 boys, all grown up) her death will be keenly felt, for she was a devoted wife and loving mother, and to them we extend our sincere sympathy, as will also their many friends in this district, where they are held in great esteem. The remains of the deceased lady, who was a staunch Methodist all her life, were laid to rest in the Rookwood cemetery, The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW: 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 12 June 1912 p 2

Woman Dies

Took Iodine By Mistake

An elderly woman, Mrs. Rachel Ann Burreson, of Cranbrook Street, Botany, who had been spending a holiday, with relatives at Oaks Avenue, Long Jetty, died last Tuesday night after taking a dose of iodine in mistake for cascara.

Mrs. Burreson had been in the habit of taking a teaspoonful of cascara in a small quantity of paraffin oil.

She picked up a bottle of tincture of iodine instead of the cascara and had swallowed the dose before she realised the mistake.

Dr. Allworth was called and gave her an injection. It is understood that an emetic in such circumstances could not have been effective.

Death was caused, it was stated, through inhaling the fumes of the iodine, which had been taken into the stomach. The Gosford Times and Wyong District Advocate (NSW : 1906 - 1954) Friday 13 January 1950 p 1

Sudden Death at Scarborough.

The Deputy-Coroner, Mr. W. H. Roes, held an inquest yesterday at Scarborough touching the death of a married, woman named Kate Elizabeth Burrows; who died suddenly at her residence, Scarborough, on Wednesday.

George Alfred Burrows deposed that his wife was a native of Derbyshire, and had been about twenty years in this State. She leaves four children, the eldest of whom is 7 years. She was a careful, steady woman, and they lived on the best of terms. She had not complained of being in illhealth. She got up and gave him his breakfast at 6.30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Was sent for at the mine at about 3 o'clock, and on arrival home found his wife dead. No one could tell him how it happened. The doctor had gone away. Said no reason to suppose that deceased would take any poison except by accident. She was on the best of terms with her neighbors. Canno't account for sulphate of zinc being on the premises except as a disinfectant. Did not know what goods came into the house, as his wife bought everything required.

John Connors, first-class constable, deposed that lie searched the bed room where the body of deceased was lying, and in company with Constable Pickering, found everything washed up and very tidy. There was a pac ket of sulphate of zinc there, but could not say if any of it had been used. Deceased and her husband were respectable, sober people, and deceased was apparently very happy and bright person.

Agnes Robertson deposed that she resided next door with her father. Deceased came into tihe shop for a loaf of bread at about 12.30, and when she left said she was going to have her dinner. At about 1.30 she heard deceased call one of her children to'her. Shortly afterwards heard her scream. Ran round and found deceased lying on the bed foaming at the mouth. Called young Pain in off the street. Asked deceased what was the matter, and she said 'I don’t know.' She asked for water, and someo was given to her. She was in extreme pain. Called Mrs. Caledane in and she assisted in applying hot fomentations-: Sent for Dr. Steel, who arrived before she died the death took place at 3 p.m.

Dr. Andrew B. Steele deposed tlnat he found deceased in a state of collapse when he was called in. Applied remedies, but failed to revive her. She was unable to tell him what was wrong. Made a post mortem examina tion. Found that the small bowel was intensely congested, inflamed, and dilated. In his opinion death was caused by adhesion around the upper part of the bowel. There was no trace whatever of irritant poison in the bowels. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 4 December 1908 p 4

On Tuesday last there passed away another old resident who as a worthy pioneer, was more closely allied with an earlier generation than this, in which she splendidly did her part as a worthy helpmate, mother, friend and neighbour. Mrs. Bursill, Senr, had reached the advanced age of 84 years, and for some time has lived with her daughter, Mrs. Whitfield and family where she has been devotedly cared for.

The late Mrs. Bursill was born in England and came to New South Wales some 66 years ago. She was the relict of the late Mr. Thos. Bursill, who was among the earlier settlers of the Shellharbour district, and with his wife shared in its progress as a farming district. Both were kindly generous people, good neighbours and firm friends, always ready to extend a helping hand in trouble or sickness. Mr. Bursill, Senr, died many years ago, but three of their family survive in Mr. Chas. Bursill of Shellharbour, Mr. T. Bursill and one daughter, Elizabeth, Mrs. Whitfield.

The funeral took place on Wednesday, the Rev. A. Gallop officiating by the graveside, and at the funeral there was a large and representative district gathering. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW: 1863 - 1947) Saturday 2 July 1921 p 2

Sir,-In your report of tho meeting at the Town Hall yesterday a statement appears to the effect that, after we had left the room, Mr. Macintosh said that Messrs. Poultor and Fry's services were highly appreciated by the committee and by the widows. So far as we are concerned we deny this statement, and protest against being thus misrepresented behind our backs. Only five minutes before Mr. Macintosh made this statment we had accused him and Mr. Lloyd, together with Messrs. Poulter and Fry and other members of the committee, with endeavouring to induce us to withdraw our actions for compensation against the Bulli Company. They said that if we sued the company we would get nothing from the fund, and promised us all sorts of things. It is not true that we have any confidence in these gentlomen, and we protest against Mr. Macintosh misrepresenting us in this way. No resolution which these gentlemon may pass among themselves will give us confidence after what has taken place, and on behalf of ourselves and children we appeal to the press and to the public against them.

We remain yours truly,

The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, the coffin being carried across from the home to the old Church cemetery  adjoining the Church of England opposite, and placed to rest between the graves of her two former husbands, Rev. C. H. Tomlinson conducting the  burial service. The late Mrs. Butterworth, who was a widow, had also previously been married to the late Mr. Joseph Pears, and as a result of the first marriage there is a family of two - Mrs. George Woods and Mr. W. G. Pears, both still residing in the district. Mrs. Butterworth is referred to in most respectful terms by all who knew her, being of regular attendance at the Church of England, and always being considered honourable and straight- forward.

One of Inverell's oldest and certainly most highly respected residents passed peacefully away to the Great Beyond on Christmas day in the person of Mrs. Buxton, relict of the late Mr. William Buxton. The deceased, who had attained the ripe age of 80 years, was residing at the time of her death with her son, Mr. A. J. Buxton, of the Hotel Delungra. Up to within a week of her death the old lady had enjoyed remarkably good health, and was particularly bright and active for her advanced years. With her husband, who predeceased her some ten years ago, she came out to this country from London 53 years ago. They first settled on the Elsmore mining field, where the late Mr. Buxton was in business, but a few years later the husband transferred his business to Inverell, and the old couple resided here continuously until passing into the 'Valley of Death.' The late Mrs. Buxton was of a very charitable and loving disposition, and was held in much esteem by all with whom she came in contact. Six sons and two daughters survive, viz., Mrs. Ryan (Sydney), Mrs. Grove (Crookwell), and Messrs. Fred J. Buxton (Inverell), A. J. (Delungra), George and Robert (Inverell), Edward (Moree), and Maurice (Delungra). The remains were brought to Inverell on Boxing Day, and laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the cemetery The Inverell Times (NSW : 1899 - 1954) Monday 31 December 1917 p 4

The bodice was of rich embroidered raised silk insertion, the yoke of ninon, hand worked with silver. The tunic overdress was bordered with the same trimming as the bodice and was worn with long train, made in the new pointed style. Her wreath of orange blossoms was covered with tulle veil, exquisitely, hand worked, with point lace in a design of trye lovers' knots. Her handsome shower bouquet of lily of the valley and water lilies and a beautiful diamond ring were gifts of the bridegroom. She was altended by two bridesmaids—-Miss Rene Ahearn and Miss Mid Simmons.

Miss Ahearn wore a dainty toilet of iris crystalline made over chiffon taffatas, yoke of Malines insertion studded with amathests, large picture hat, trimmed with roses and marguerites with ribbon to match.

She also wore a gold and amethyst bracelet and carried a shower bouquet, gifts of the bridegroom. Miss Mid Simmons' costume was a rose pompadour striped ninon, trimmed with applique and tulbular braid of the same shade, large hat trimmned with roses and silk. Mr. Sheedy acted as best man, and Mr. Jack McCaffrey as groomsman. At the conclusion of the ceremony a reception was held in the banqueting hall at the Brighton Hotel (the guests, to the number of upwards of 100, being received by the bride's mother), where the happy couple received the congratulations of many of their friends. …

The happy couple left for Sydney, enroute for Melbourne and Tasmania, by the afternoon train, the station being crowded with friends and well-wishers to see them off;… The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 2 November 1910 p 2

The death occurred last night in a private hospital in Wagga of Mrs. Ellie Byrnes, the wife of Mr. Edwin Byrnes, formerly headmaster of the South Wagga Public School. Mrs. Byrnes was in her sixty-fifth year, had been in ill health for some years, and entered the hospital about 6 weeks ago. Since Mr. Byrnes retired from the service of the Education Department he and Mrs. Byrnes spent much of their time with two of their married daughters, Mesdames A. T. White, of Borambola, and P. W. Simpson, of Forest Hill. The other members of the family are Mrs. G. Short, of Merrybigga, and Miss Gwen Byrnes of Sydney, who has been spending a holiday at Wagga as the guest of Miss Consie Dobney. It was while on a visit to Mrs. White that Mrs. Byrnes became so ill that it was necessary for her to come to Wagga for medical attention. During the many years, she had lived in Wagga. Mrs. Byrnes devoted herself with much energy to the work of the Wagga Benevolent Society, and had been a worker for St. John's Church of England. Many people have cause to be grateful to Mrs. Byrnes for assistance always given unstintedly, andthey will learn of her death with regret. The sympathy of the community will be extended to Mr. Byrnes and members of the family. Mrs. Byrnes, who was born at Parramatta, was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John J. Miller. The funeral will take place from St. John's Church of England, Wagga, Daily Advertiser (Wagga Wagga, NSW : 1911 - 1954) Monday 25 May 1931 p 2

Niece of John Carroll see Carroll?

Mrs. E. Bjyron, sen., whose death was reported in a recent issue, was a native of the Co. Limerick, Ireland, and arrived in the lllawarra district in May, 1855, al the early ago of 15 years and 9 months. She had, therefore, been a resident of 60 years at the time of her demise, having resided between Shellharbor and Wollongong the whole of that time, 42 years being spent in the latter town. She was married at Jumberoo on Christmas Day, 1857, to the late Mr. Ed. .Byron, sen., whose death occurred in 1889. The deceased was of an extremely charitable disposition, and was warmly attached to her Church. Even in the early days, when residing at Dapto, she was known to walk from Dapto to Shellhnrbor and back, carrying a child, so that she would not miss Mass. She died fortilied by the rites of her Church, the Very Rev. P. M. Dunne, Rev. Father McNally, and the Sisters of St. Mary's Convent being constant visitors to her bedside. (Sons were very active in the community and how the community reacted to her passing) The deceased is survived by six sons, four daughters, fifty grandchildren, and two great grand children

As a neighbour and friend the late Mrs. Byron will be missed by many, as in time of sickness and sorrow she was always a walling helper. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 11 June 1915 p 4

BYWATER-JONES.-September 13, at Bulli, by the Rev. R. H. Waugh, M.A., James Bywater to Mary Jones, both of Bulli.    The Sydney Morning Herald 17 September 1880

Husband charged with having embezzled certain moneys of Illawarra and District Council of Australian Labor in 1898, he was arrested in July at Fingal in Tasmania. He was also a member of the Bulli Mine Disaster rescue parties.




At the Bulli Police Court on Wednesday, before Mr. C. S. Alexander, P.M., and Mr. H. S. Fry, J.P., Mary Bywater, Fanny Brownhill, and Sarah Moore, the two former married and the last-named a widow, were charged with riotous behaviour in a public thoroughfare, to wit, the main road to Wollongong, at Woonona, on the 30th ultimo. The proceedings were instigated by the police, Senior-sergeant Grieve, of Wollongong, being in charge of the prosecution. Mr. C. C. Russell, of Wollongong, appeared for the police to prosecute, and Mr. F. Woodward, of Wollongong, appeared for the defence…

Mrs. Bywater came out from her own house with an old kerosene tin, and, on the public road, started tin-kettling me. She beat the tin with a stick, and came towards my place. Mrs. Bywater's husband is secretary to the miners, or something like that.
