It will be gratifying to the friends (and they are many) of the late lamented and esteemed Dr. Lacey, to hear that his widow and little son have arrived in England, and are once more restored to their nearest and dearest surviving relatives. Many were the acts of unostentatious charily performed by the Doctor and Mrs. Lacey, known only to the recipients, and which have justly endeared them to the people of Kiama and Shoalhaven; and we feel sure when she returns, as she intends to do if spared, she will receive a warm and genuine welcome from the people of these districts The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW: 1863 - 1947) Friday 22 July 1887 p 2

An Unhappy Marriage.

At the Wollongong Court of Petty Sessions on Thursday (before Lieut-Col. Chisholm, P.M.) Michael Lahiff was charged by Kate Lahiff, his wife, with having left her without any means of support since the 14th of June last. Mr. Russell for complainant, and Mr. Lysaght for defendant. Mr. Lysaght said defendant had paid towards the support of complainant as long as he was able to do so ; he was not at present able to contribute towards her support, but he was willing to take her back, and provide her with the best home be could. Mr. Russell said from what had previously transpired it was impossible for complainant to live with defendant. Complainant deposed that defendant was her husband; she was not willing to live with him again; he had agreed to give her 10s per week, and she had received that, amount up to the 14th June, since which date she had received no money. To. M. Lysaght: I could not again live with defendant from the way he previously treated me and the way he lived; I do not know whether he has been in work since he left Mount Pleasant Company's employ; a deed of separation was drawn up between us, and defendant fulfilled its contents for some time; I do not know whether or not he is able to carry them out now. Charles C. Russell produced, the deed of separation between the parties, and William Richardson deposed to having received money at different times from defendant, which he paid over to complainant. Defendant deposed that he had been employed as clerk at the Mount Pleasant colliery until November last, but had lost the situation owing to the action taken by complainant at a previous court; he had signed a deed of separation, agreeing to pay complainant 10s per week he had paid altogether about £15 himself, and others had paid money for him ; he had means when he lost his employment, but now had none ; he had not earned a penny since he left it, although he had tried as hard as any man to obtain work ; he was now living upon what was earned by his children and what he obtained from friends ; if he had the means he would either take his wife back or contribute towards her support. To Mr. Russell: I am a plaintiff in a lawsuit with two others, but do not expect anything out of it ; I have given a solicitor my interest to carry on the suit ; Carrie Shannon is still living in my house; she is the woman who caused the separation between my wife and myself ; if my wife came back, Miss Shannon would leave ; my children are aged 17, 16, and 14 years, the two eldest being girls. To Mr. Lysaght : The lawsuit is an equity suit touching the validity of my late father's will, by which he left everything to his wife ; his three children dispute the will; my interest is an imaginary one. Defendant was ordered to pay 10s weekly into the hands of Senior-sergeant Grieve for a period of twelve months. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Saturday 17 July 1897 p 2


DEATH has claimed another to pass over to the great majority, on this occasion in the person of Mrs Katherine Lahiff, which occurred at the residence of her sisters (Mrs O'Connell and Mrs O'Mara), “Acacia” Cottage, Tumut, on Friday morning, at 7.20 o'clock, at the age of 69 years. The deceased, who was also sister of Ald J. E. Madigan, of Tumut, and Mr. John Madigan, of Red Hill, was born at Yass, and in 1887 married the late Michael Lahiff, at Tumut, and went to Wollongong to live, where she remained until, four years ago, her health began to fail and on medical advice returned to the sub-alpine regions. Here she improved greatly, and only occasionally required to consult Dr. Mason, her medical adviser, for minor ailments. About a month ago she again became ill, and Dr. Browne, and subsequently Dr. Weedon, attended her ; but despite all they did to restore her to health, aided by the nursing of her sisters and the kindnesses from many friends, the vital spark gradually flickered out. She received spiritual consolation from Frs. Keating and McDonnell, and also the Nuns of the Convent, of Mercy, Father Keating administering the rites at the bedside. One sister, Mrs. P. Kiley of Red Hill, predeceased her. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Roman Catholic portion of the Old cemetery. Rev. Father Keating officiated at the grave and Mr. Jas Elphick directed the funeral. Ald. J. E. Madigan and Mr. J. Madigan (brothers), Mr. P. Kiley (brother-in-law) and Messrs Maurice, Percy, Norman and Vincent Madigan and Mr. J. R. Kiley of Darah Station, Cootamundra (nephews) were the bearers.

A Requiem Mass was celecrated in the Roman Catholic Church, Tumut, yesterday morning, Fr. Keating officiating. We tender the bereaved our deepest sympathy. The Tumut Advocate and Farmers and Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925) Tuesday 20 May 1913 p 2

Sudden Death. Yesterday morning, Mrs. Lahiff, mother of Mr. John Lahiff, fruiterer, of Crown-street, was found dead in her bed. On Tuesday' night she complained to her son of feeling unwell, and before retiring to bed asked him for a bottle of lemonade. This he gave her, and she then went to her room. Mrs. Lahiff was heard moving about late at night, and about breakfast time, as she had not made her appearance, Mr. Lahiff went into her room to call her, and found her dead, but not then cold. He immediately sent for Dr. Lee, who had previously been attending her. The deceased lady was subject to fits, and it was only a week or so ago that she was taken suddenly ill with a fit on the cliffs overlooking the basin, at which time she was taken to Mr. James Keirnan's, where she was attended to for several days until sufficiently recovered to be removed to her son's residence. We understand Dr. Lee then expressed the belief that the deceased would very likely be carried off by a similar attack, a belief which she herself shared. The matter having been reported to the authorities, and Dr. Lee giving a certificate, an inquest was dispensed with. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Thursday 13 August 1885 p 2

Husband resident for 40 years and was the director of the Mt Pleasant Coal mining company, a builder and Mayor. She was left her husband possessions in a dubious will which had her parents sign as witnesses and she wrote out and while he was old and rather ‘forgetful’, his children by his prior marriage contested the will.


At the Glebe Police Court on Thursday (says the ' Daily Telegraph,') Mary Ellen Lahiff, aged 36, formerly of Mount Pleasant, near Wollongong, widow of the late Patrick Lahiff, for many years the manager of the Mount Pleasant Coalmine, and formerly Mayor of Wollongong, and of North Illawarra, was charged before Mr. Wilshire, S.M., with wilfully and maliciously setting fire to the dwelling-house of Ernest Henry Farey, licensee of the Bald Faced Stag Hotel, Leichhardt, on the 18th inst.

Mr. Dillon appeared for the accused.

The evidence for the prosecution was to the effect that on the 18th inst, the accused was employed as a general servant at Mr. Farey's hotel, having been engaged a day or two previously. On that day Miss Usher, who was a guest at the hotel, had gone up the river for an outing with Miss Farey. Mr. Farey was left at home, and he fell asleep. Whilst he was asleep the accused was upstairs attending to the bed rooms, and was in Miss Usher's bedroom. At the head of the bed, in a wall-pocket, were Miss Usher's gold watch and two gold guards, which she had had there for the day. After a time smoke was seen issuing out of Miss Usher's bedroom, and on Mr. Farey and his man rushing upstairs they found Miss Farey's bed on fire. Some of the woodwork near the bed was also burnt. Questioned by Mr. Farey, accused said she did not cause the fire and she did not know how it originated. When Miss Usher returned in the evening she missed her gold watch and guards. Accused said she had not seen them, and know nothing about them. When arrested, accused said to police: 'I am a widow, and I come from near Wollongong. I am a respectable woman, but, unfortunately, now 1 have to work for my living.' In reply to questions by Plain-clothes Senior sergeant Bradley, who conducted the prosecution, the accused said she had been in a number of places about Sydney as general servant since she came from Wollongong. In most of those places fires had occurred whilst she was there, and it had been alleged that jewellery had been stolen in those places at the time of the fires She was now out under the First Offenders' Act, having been sentenced to six months' imprisonment for stealing jewellery at one of the houses where she was general servant. She stole brooches. Different men had visited her at the houses where she had been in service, and had been in her bedroom. A man had visited her at Mr. Farey's, and was in her bedroom late at night. She wrote a letter to him, in which she called herself his wife, and told him about the fire, and in which she said only herself, ' the boss,' and his man were in the house at the time of the fire. She did not remember being in a place at Wollongong where there was a fire. Mr. Wilshire told Mr. Dillon that it would not make any difference if he made a statement, for this was clearly a prima facie case. He committed accused to take her trial at the Quarter Sessions at Darlinghurst, commencing on April 2. Bail would be allowed — accused in £80, and two sureties in £40 each, or one in £80. Accused was then further charged with stealing a gold watch and two gold guards, valued £25, the property of Elizabeth Lily Usher, from the latter's bedroom on the day of the fire. On this charge accused was also committed to take her trial at the Quarter Sessions at Darlinghurst, bail being allowed as in the last case. The accused was subsequently removed by the police to Darlinghurst gaol. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Saturday 31 March 1900 p 2


At the Quarter Sessions, Sydney, on Wednesday, Mary Ellen Lahiff (formerly of Wollongong), pleaded not guilty to a charge that on March 18 at Leichhardt she did steal one watch and two watch chains, the property of Elizabeth Usher. Mr. J. J. Dillon appeared for accused, and succeeded in establishing such contradictions amongst certain witnesses for the Grown that at the conclusion of the case for the prosecution his Honor asked the jury without calling upon the defence, if they had agreed upon a verdict. The jury, without leaving the box, returned a verdict of not guilty, and accused was discharged. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW: 1900 - 1954) Saturday 21 April 1900 p 1

Cruelty and adultery with some persons unknown to the petitioner were the grounds upon which Elizabeth Ada Lance (formerly Guy) sued, before Mr. Justice Walker, for a dissolution of her marriage with Alexander Lance, which ceremony was performed at Newtown, on November 16, 1933, according to the rites of the Wesleyan Methodist Church. The petitioner stated that she was under age when they were married, and her parents being dead, a written consent was given to the ceremony taking place by her guardian. In October last they were living at Paddington, and on the 11th of that month her husband came home to dinner, and said he was going to the theatre. At first he said he was going with a friend, and a little later that he was going with a lady. He never came home that night (Friday). On the Saturday night he went to kiss her good-night, and she refused to let him do so. He remained away from home on the Saturday night, and returned to his dinner on the Sunday. He remained at home that night, and during the early part of it he asked for the £14 he had given her on the Friday. She asked him for £2 to purchase something for the children, and he told her to 'Go to ? and get it; he would not give it to her.' When she asked him not to be going on as he had, for the sake of the children, he said he intended to 'keep that woman,' and if she mentioned the matter to his people he would sell up the home. On the Sunday night (October 13) he went upstairs, and tried to kick her down. He went out on the Monday morning, and did not return home till Tuesday night. He remained at home that evening. With the exception of the Sunday and Tuesday nights in October, he had not slept at home since. He used to come to dinner every day, and leave immediately after. She saw him with a certain woman in William-street, about Christmas time, and again with the same person in Ox ford-street about the beginning of the present year. When she saw him with the woman in Oxford-street he raised his hat to her, and when she asked him why he dared raise his hat to her when he was in that woman's company, he replied, 'She is as good as you are, and better.' Sometime later, from something she had been told, she asked him why he had dared to take the woman to Newcastle as his wife, where she (petitioner) was so well known. When he asked her if she intended suing for a divorce, she told him she had placed the matter in the hands of a solicitor. When the petition was served on him, he admitted that every word in it was true. On one occasion she saw him on the balcony of a house in Darlinghurst-road with the same woman, and the following morning she saw him leave the house between 8 and 9 o'clock. She went to the landlady, and asked who the gentle man was who had just left her house, and she replied it was 'Mr. — — , who occupies the balcony room. Prior to October last, she had not lived with her husband as man and wife for over twelve months. The cause was not hers. From documents she had seen, her husband's earnings averaged £10 a week. His Honour granted a decree nisi, returnable in three months, the petitioner to have the custody of the children (3). The respondent was ordered to pay the costs of the suit, and to give the petitioner 30s a week permanent alimony. Evening News (Sydney, NSW: 1869 - 1931) Saturday 30 August 1902 p 6

This was a summons for assault. Mr. Montague appeared for complainant, who pleaded not guilty.

Eva Rosina Harband, the complainant, deposed that she was the wife of defendant, and lived with him at Junee. On last Saturday morning at breakfast time defendant said, “You had five or six new dresses a few days ago” Complainant said, “I don't know where they are.” Defendant then hit her across the face with a wet towel. The defendant said, “You must have given the dresses away to the neighbours, as you feed the neighbours.” Complainant told defendant he would do it once too often. Defendant then knocked her over a stool, and broke the stool. He then caught her by the throat, and said if she did not clear out he would murder her. He dragged her along the floor by her hair.

By Mr. Montague: Complainant lived in George-street, Junee. The neighbors saw defendant treat her in the manner stated.

They had been married three years, and had two children. Mrs. Simms and Mrs. Monkham saw this assault. Complainant did not take a knife to defendant. Defendant did drink, but was not drunk when bhe assaulted her. She had been staying in Mrs. Simm's house since the assault. She had not a bad temper. Her husband was at home on Sunday.

For the defence: John Harband, the defendant, deposed that on Saturday morning he got up to his breakfast, Complainant had cooked part of it in a dirty saucepan.

He told complainant it would not do, and asked her to pour him out a cup of tea. He did not catch the complainant by the throat, or by the hair, but by the right wrist to take a knife from her hand. They were close together. He then let complainant go. Complainant threatened to do for defendant on the first opportunity. When he asked complainant to pour him out a cup of tea she refused.

The bench dismissed the information. Wagga Wagga Express (NSW : 1879 - 1917) Thursday 6 November 1890 p 2

Assault upon a Wife.-At the Newtown Police Court yesterday, before Mr. Delohery, S M., John Harband, aged 38, was charged with assaulting his wife at Ashfield, and was fined £1, in default 21 days' gaol. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Tuesday 12 December 1899 p 7

Leslie John was charged, May 1901, by the police with stealing a dozen bottles of wine, he stated he was going to sell them and use the money to buy lollies and food. On the papers his mother states that all 5 of her children had been admitted to the Benevolent Soc. Asylum, and that the father gave nothing for the support of his children. She is listed as ‘keeping a brothel, independently’.

There are entries on Ancestry Family Trees that state John Harband died in NSW and was buried in Canterbury N.Z. this is incorrect. The headstone is that of his parents and it mentions his a dying in Parramatta, but that is all. Someone just can’t read a headstone properly.

Mrs. Eliza Lane, the mother of a, large grown-up family, and a lady who had spent a great number of years in Corrimal, and was noted for her charitable work, passed on at the home of her daughter (Mrs. Allen) on Wednesday, after about four years suffering. The deceased and her late husband took a great interest in the welfare of Corrimal over 30 years ago, while Mrs. Lane was a noted worker for St. Alban's Church of England. In recognition of that great work the remains were conveyed to the Church on Thursday afternoon, where a special service was conducted by the Rev. A. W. Setchell, who came from Sydney for the express purpose. He was assisted by the Rev. Olds. Leaving the church, the remains were conveyed to Bulli cemetery for interment.

The deceased, who was 80 years of age, leaves a family of ten to mourn the loss of a most devoted and affectionate mother. The bereaved are: Mrs. Allen, Mrs. Willoughby, Mrs. Curry (Corrimal), Mrs. Cobby (Sydney) and sons James, Herb, Lester, and Roy and Ern (Sydney).

The death on Wednesday night of Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Lang removes another highly respected identity of the district, of which she was a native. She was born in Balgownie on May 27, 1856, her parents being Mr. and Mrs. C. Caldwell, who were amongst the early pioneers of the district. She was married in Balgownie to Mr. Alexander Lang, removing shortly afterwards to Bulli, where they resided for six years. The Bulli mining disaster occurred during their residence in that centre. Mr. and Mrs. Lang afterwards returned to Balgownie and later settled in Wollongong, where Mr. Lang became well known as a Master Butcher. Later he built 'Strone,' a very fine residence at Mount Ousley. The late Mrs. Lang survived her husband by eight, years. She did not take any part in public affairs, but was particularly fond of gardening of which she made a great hobby at 'Strone.' She is survived by one son, Mr. W. A. Long, of Crown Street, Wollongong, another son, Mr. John Lang having died in 1914.

The remains will be interred in the Presbyterian Cemetery, Wollongong, this afternoon. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 10 July 1936 p 9

After being a patient sufferer for a very considerable period, Mrs. William Langenberg passed away peacefully while in a sleep at midday on Tues day at her home in Alfred Street, Woonona, and she received every comfort from her husband and family right to the last.

The funeral cortege, which included a large circle of relatives and friends, left the home at 4.30 p.m. on Wednesday for Bulli cemetery, where the body was interred in the Methodist section, the service being conducted by Rev. G. T. Moore, who, in Impressive manner, also added words of consolation and comfort to the mourners. There was a remarkable display of flowers, some of which; in keeping with an oft expressed wish of deceased, were lowered into the grave with the coffin. Deceased was 52 years of age. Despite her serious handicap of ill-health, she always maintained a brightness and an interest in many matters. Particularly was this so in regard to music and at concerts and Eisteddfods she was always an interested and enthusiastic attendant, and it is certain she derived pronounced pleasure from accompanying on her rounds, her talented daughter, Miss Hilma, so well-known as a teacher of pianoforte. However, death surely came as a happy release, after deceased had bravely contended against the inevitable. A native of the district, she was a daughter of the late Joseph and Mrs. Fowler, latter being a much respected resident of Chenhall Street, Woonona, and there are many other family relatives, including the well-known Southall family. There is much sympathy for the widower, and for the two daughters — Hilma and Myrtle (Mrs. W. Brown) and one son, Harold, Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 28 October 1932 p 7

The end came on Monday last at the Sacred Heart Hospice, Darlinghurst, where she had been an inmate for about, a month, and where she underwent no less than three operations for an internal complaint.

Electoral Roll 1903 resident Woonona –Domestic Duties


With the passing of the late Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Lay, of Stanhope St., Woonona, on Tuesday last, Woonona has lost one of its oldest residents. The deceased was born in County Dur ham, England, 78 years ago, and came to Australia over 50 years ago, and with her family first settled at Clifton. Over 40 years ago she went to live at Stanhope St., where she resided, continuously till the time of her death. Mrs. Lay was of a quiet and retiring disposition, and was loved by all who came in contact with her, for her sterling qualities and kindly disposition. Some years ago she was afflicted by blindness, and bore her affliction in a wonderfully Christian spirit, and was never known to complain. For the past five months she was confined to her bed, and was attended by her daughter, Netta, who has won the admiration of many -for her unselfish devotion 'to her mother. The remains were interred in St. Augustine's cemetery, near those of her brother, who died nearly 50 years ago. Mrs. Lay is survived by two sons Jack (W.A.), George (Punchbowl), and five daughters, Alice (Mrs. Field), Eva (Mrs. Gould), Emma (Mrs. Mc Alister), Elizabeth (Mrs. Tindell) and Netta.

Mrs. F. Lean died after a long illness at her residence, Collins street, Kiama, on Sunday, 9th instant. During the whole of her illness she received skilled attention from Dr. Corner and the devoted attention and care of her sister Mrs A. Vidler. For six weeks also her daughter (Mrs W. F. Walker, Marrickville) came to assist in the nursing.

The deceased passed away most peacefully in the presence of her husband, sister and daughter.

The late Mrs. Lean was the eldest daughter of the late William Torrens, and was born at Shellharbour 68 years ago, her parents having arrived in the colony the previous year from Ballymoney, County Antrim, with one child.

After residing for a short term at Shellharbour, the late W. Torrens, with the McGills, Moles, and others selected land at Yellow Rock where Mrs Lean experienced the hardships of the pioneering life of those days.

She married in 1888, and after residing with her husband in different parts of the State returned to the old district in 1892, and has resided here continuously for 35 years. She is survived by her husband and daughter (Mrs W. F. Walker), grandsons Messrs. R. F. Walker, Alf. Walker and granddaughter Mrs. T. Connors (of Marrickville), also two great granddaughters (Misses J. Walker and D. Connors). She is also survived by three sisters and three brothers (Mrs. M. Timms, Wollongong,

Mrs. R. Worden, Manly, Mrs. A. Vidler, Jamberoo and Messrs J. and S. Torrens, Queensland, and W. Torrens, Jamberoo).

Mrs. Lean was of a very quiet and unobtrusive disposition, her sole ambition was centred in her home, and the love and welfare of her husband and children.

…The deceased was laid to rest beside her mother, who pre-deceased her 10 years ago. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 14 May 1927 p 2

Frances Ledger was charged with using threatening language to her son, Robert Ledger. Constable Emerton deposed: I arrested defendant at her residence; she said the boy was the cause of it all, but that the father was just as bad, and that he struck her with a shovel, and urged on the boy to tease her. Robert Ledger junior, aged seventeen, deposed: Defendant is my step-mother; she has frequently been in the habit of threatening me and ill-using me; she is very violent ; for the last three or four days she has ill-used me; yesterday morning I was in the bedroom; she came in and spit at me and kicked me; she threatened to poison me, and also to injure me and my father; I am in fear she will do me some injury unless restrained by law; she does not drink; she has been in the habit of using this violent conduct for years. Defendant said the boy was repeatedly warned not to worry her. Defendant was ordered to find one surety in £20 to keep the peace for three months, or to be imprisoned for a like period.

She was the eldest daughter of the late William and Ellen Reedy, and had an only sister, the late Mrs. Ellen Mclntyre. ; At Jamberoo, Mrs. Lee was married to George, second eldest son of Henry and Margaret Lee. Immediately after their marriage the bride and bridegroom left for the Richmond River, travelling from Sydney by the old s.s. Tomki. Arriving at Lismore, they stayed some, weeks at Deane's Hotel, after which they went to Mr. Lawrence Hayden's, of Goolmangar, where they worked for some time. Subsequently, Mr. George Lee was engaged by. Mr. Ernest Carter, with whom he worked for ten years.

Mr. Lee then selected about- 160 acres of land at Goolmangar. This, he later sold to Mr. Thomas Crawford. Then he bought the farm known as the “Old Fallen,” the late Mrs. Lee's home until her death. Mrs. Lee was a hard-working, industrious woman, and during a life time at Goolmangar of upwards of 50 years saw the many hardships and inconveniences encountered by the early settlers.

Her husband predeceased her by several years, and then the whole responsibility of home and a fairly large family devolved upon her. This responsibility was never shirked; and at the time of her death she was able to say that she had made a freehold of the “Old Fallen” as well as purchased another property joining. Her daughter, Miss Mary Lee, and son, George Henry Lee, remained home with their mother, other members of the family having married and secured homes of their own. The late Mrs. Lee was of a quiet and unassuming nature. Persons travelling the road, who approached her door for food, were never turned away hungry, but always received a- good: meal, and if necessity demanded were given a liberal supply for the track. Only those settlers who came here 50 years ago have an idea what sort of 'a “track” it was in those days. Mrs. Lee leaves a family of three sons, four daughters and a number of grand children. The sons are James William, of Hanging Rock; George Henry,of Goolmangar; Francis Joseph, of Grafton; and the daughters, Margaret Ellen (Mrs. E. Cawley), of Lismore; Mary Matilda, of Goolmangar; Grace Elizabeth (Mrs. W. Menzie, of Brisbane); and Bridget Anne (Mrs. J. Nilon, of Lismore). Mrs. Lee died at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. E. Cawley, of Eastwood, Lismore. Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Thursday 5 June 1930 p 6

A very sudden death took place at Port Kembla during the small hours of Sunday morning, the victim being a Mrs. Lee, wife of George Lee, a wharf laborer employed at the old Kembla jetty. The deceased, who might have been called a young woman, is said to have enjoyed excellent health to within two hours of her death, when symptoms of weakness became so apparent that a doctor was deemed necessary, and called in. The services of the attending surgeon (Dr. Lee) were next to useless, disease of the heart being the unfortunate woman's infirmity.

Husband died as a result of an accident.


On Friday last, one was laid to rest, who for 51 years lived in Gerringong, in Mrs. Margaret Lee, who died in her 88th year, and who with her husband Henry Lee, took a prominent part in the advancement of the district, and whose names were a household word for kindness and hospitality to all in need. In the year 1865 the Barque “Julia Heyn” founded off the Coast of Connor's Beach near Black Head and the Captain and crew of nine landed on the beach. They sought assistance, and Mr. and Mrs. Lee readily gave it to them-they attended to their wants, kept them for a fortnight and when Capt. Hill was leaving, he wanted to pay for himself and crew but Mr. Lee said No. My Master said “lnasmuch as ye did it to the least of my little ones, you have done it unto me,” that is my reward for any small kindness I may have done. Capt. Hill, when he came to Sydney, procured a beautiful silver cup and sent it to Mr. Lee, suitably inscribed, which is a treasured heirloom in the family. Though living on the Richmond River, with members of her family, her heart was still in Gerringong, and her last wish and desire, was to be laid to rest beside her husband in the quiet graveyard, hallowed by so many ties, and near the friends she loved so well, whose graves are all around her. The family consisted of four sons and four daughters, Henry, George, Francis and Samuel, and Mrs. Dawson, Mrs. Parkes, Mrs. Turkwell and Miss Tilly, in whose home she breathed her last. George died a few years ago, all the remainder survive her, and carried out her last wishes, re her interment.

Late Mrs T. W. Lee

The death occurred on Wednesday night, of Mrs. Lee, relict of the late Dr. T W. Lee, one of Wollongong's oldest residents; Of a gentle and re tiring disposition; the late Mrs. Lee never sought publicity for her many acts of a charitable nature. She preferred to do good by stealth. Those who knew her best, however, speak of an ever willing disposition to assist any cases of distress brought under her notice; the church at Figtree stands as a monument to her unselfish efforts as a church worker. She commenced' church work there in 1888, and for twenty years was superintendent of the Sunday school. Her work in this direction will more readily be remembered by the older residents- who have recollections of the days; of horse drawn vehicles; when visits to Figtree occupied longer times than they do to-day. She was a devoted and regular worshipper at St. Michael's Church Wollongong, and her presence will be missed from the congregation. Her chief interest centred in St. Michael's Branch of the Mothers' Union. Other branches of the Church' work also had her liberal support.

The late Mrs. Lee was the eldest daughter of the late Rev. Alfred Martell, vicar of Hexton, Herts,: England where she was born 85 years ago. She married Dr. Timothy Wood Lee of Thame, Oxon. They came to Australia in 1883, and Dr. Lee practised his profession in Wollongong until his death in 1919 The funeral will leave St Michael s Church, Wollongong, at 7 a.m. tomorrow.

The death occurred at Claremont Hospital, Ballina, on Tuesday, morning, of an old and esteemed resident of the district, Mrs. Martha Lee, wife of Mr. F. J. Lee, of “Prospect” East Ballina. She had been ill for some weeks, and lately showed improvement, but a relapse on Monday night resulted in her death.

The late Mrs. Lee was born at Foxground, near Berry (South Coast) 67 years ago, being a member of the well-known Blow family. She married Mr. F. J. Lee in 1892, and with her husband resided in Singleton for some ten years, afterwards coming to the Richmond River district. After five years in Lismore, the family moved to “Prospect”, East Ballina, where they have resided for the last 23 years.

The late Mrs. Lee became a well-known and popular figure at the sea side town, taking an active interest in the Church of England Women's Guild, and all charitable, patriotic and public movements. She was a very old member of the Country Women's Association, being one of the first to join this body.

Four sons and three daughters, in addition to Mr. Lee, comprise the family. Messrs. Frank H. (Alphdale), Roy (“Prospect”), Gordon (“Prospect”), and George, (Albury) are the sons, and the daughters are Mrs. M. J. Armitt (Mullumbimby), Miss. Laura Lee (“Prospect”), and Mrs. H.

A member of one of the oldest families in the Illawarra district passed away on Monday in the person of Miss Leeper, of Wollongong, a woman of an exceptionally fine character — kindly, considerate, and deeply religious — she led an unblemished life, and by her neighbourly instincts and unfailing courtesy made for herself a wide circle of friends, who to-day mourn her death.

The late Miss Leeper was born 73 years ago at Sydney, but came to this district at an early age, and has been associated with the district ever since . Her late father, Mr. James Leeper, was engine driver at the old Brownsville Mill, and the family lived for some years at Avondale. When a young woman, the late Miss Leeper became a dressmaker, and old residents will remember the time when she conducted a dressmaking business in Crown St., Wollongong, in a small cottage belonging to Mr. Samuel Gutcher, sen., that was situated where Mr. Huddy's chemist's shop now stands. She employed a number of hands, and she was recognised for the straightforward manner in which her business was conducted. Her brother, the late Mr. Tom Leeper, resided with her from the time he entered his apprenticeship as a compositor with the late Mr. Donald Campbell, who then conducted the ‘Argus’,' until the time of his death. The late Miss Leeper was one of a large family, the surviving members of which arc: — Mrs. Jack Byron (Wollongong), Mesdames J. And M. Boland (Bulli), .Mrs. Tom Nunan (Queensland), Mrs. J. Woods (Woonona) and Mr. A. O. Leeper (Wollongong). ? The remains were interred in the Wollongong cemetery on Tuesday, a large number following- the remains to their lust resting place. The Rev. Fathers Doherty and Farrell officiated at the graveside. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 16 August 1929 p 9

John Collins and Martha Lenham, charged with maliciously breaking the windows of the Clifton Hotel on the 27th August last, pleaded not guilty. Mr. Woodward for prosecutor, and Mr. Lipscomb for the defence. The evidence in this case was rather conflicting. Patrick Collins deposed to the effect that whilst a row was taking place outside the hotel on the night alluded to. John Collins was endeavouring to take Harris away, and that by accident his hand went through a pane of glass. This witness also said that he saw Mrs. Lenham throw a stone through the window, but Mary Lenham, a young woman, sister-in-law of the female defendant, deposed that Mrs. Lenham was in her own house all that evening, and that she left her in bed with her children between 9 and ten o'clock, at which time she (witness) went away. Mrs. Lenham also deposed that she was not at the Clifton Hotel at all that evening, and did not leave her own home or go to the concert, and that Patrick Collins must have mistaken some other woman for her.

Before H Connell, Esq. PM.

Willian Leno was brought up under arrest on the information of his wife Susannah for unlawful assault.

Complainant said she had been married to prisoner 111/2/ years and had four children living. On Thursday last prisoner asked their boy for a knife, and she said he should not have it. Without further provocation her husband, who had an uncontrollable temper, struck her with his open hand on the face and afterwards with his fist on the nose, and knocked her down, threw out the meat, and smashed the crockery. She ran out of the house (at the railway camp) for protection. Prisoner jumped over the fence and followed her, using filthy language to her, and telling her not to come back, as he did not want her, and would not have her, and such as she were better dead, His conduct was shameful, and he had been in the habit of beating her over since their marriage. She had caused a warrant to be issued by the Wollongong Bench against him for deserting her and neglecting to support his children.

Prisoner said that or the occasion referred to his wife, as soon as he came home, commenced jawing him, and annoyed him by snatching away a paper from him, and also in reference to his proposing to lend a dray which she claimed as her own. She slapped him across the mouth with a butter knife, and the butter remained on his face. He caught hold of her and shook her, but never lifted his hand first to her, and never to say beat her.

To Mr. Connell: She does not drink.

Complainant said she did not want to be hard on her husband, and only wanted him to support his children if he left her; but he wanted to live with her and ill use her, and she would not suffer him.

The P.M, was about sentencing prisoner to three months' imprisonment, but on the supplication of complainant reduced the sentence to one month in Wollongong gaol.

Prisoner, who was much excited, embraced his wife and two of his children, and took an agitated farewell. Reporter and Illawarra Journal (Kiama, NSW : 1887 - 1894) Wednesday 7 September 1887 p 2

Death of Mrs. Leverett. - A very old and highly respected resident of Armidale, in the person of Mrs. Maria Leverett, licensee of the While Horse Hotel, passed away on Wednesday afternoon last. The deceased, who had attained the age of 64 years, enjoyed fairly good health up to about 12 months ago, when she fell a victim to dropsy, and from then until the time of her death she had been under constant medical care.

Mrs. Leverett was in the hotel business in Armidale for many years, and previous to entering the White Horse she was proprietress of the Great Northern Hotel (since destroyed by fire), and also occupied the Court House Hotel at the time of its being burnt down. The deceased was of a kind and cheerful disposition, and had a large circle of friends. The funeral, which took place on Thursday afternoon, was numerously attended.

At Albion Park on Sunday last. Henrietta Florence Levey, wife of Mr. Pullman Levey, died very suddenly at her late residence near the Albion Park railway Station. It appears that the deceased- had complained of certain ailments and on Saturday last called upon her sister-in-law with a request for some medicine. She was given among other things, some bitter aloes but it is unknown if she took any of these. On Sunday morning she was so weak and ill that her husband prepared a warm bath for her, but on being taken out of this and whilst being placed in bed, she exclaimed : ' Oh, save me,' and expired immediately afterwards. An inquest was held on deceased's remains on Monday, before Mr. C. Cameron, J.P., District Coroner, and a jury of 12. The medical evidence showed that deceased died from loss of blood and blood poisoning, and a Verdict to that effect was returned.

The first interment in the new cemetery took place last Monday when the Rev. J. H. Lewin had his youngest child laid to rest in the Wesleyan portion of the ground.

Now that the long delay in using this burial place is over, it is to be hoped that this section of the community will take an interest in making this “God's Acre” a suitable one for strangers and relatives of the departed to visit. Improvement can be done in the way of neat fencing to divide the various sections and the forming of roads, the planting of flowers and trees, the fixing of seats, and other things that will add to the charm of its natural formation.

Bridget Ann Lewis v. John Lewis; alleged wife desertion Lithgow Mercury (NSW: 1898 - 1954) Friday 19 February 1904 p 6


Bridget Ann Lewis v. John Lewis; wife desertion. No appearance of defendant.

Mr. Thompson for plaintiff. The case was heard ex parte. A letter from document to the Senr.-sergt was put in.

Bridget Ann Lewis deposed: I am the wife of John Lewis, and my information is correct. I was married to defendant in 1873 in county Durham, England. Some time ago I had some houses, under a building lease, but these have since fallen in,: and they belong now to Saywell Co., Ltd. I have no interest whatever in them. I have no means of support. Since Jan. 1 my husband has not supported me in any way; I think he can support me for he told me he could make £6 or £7 with a model of Mafeking he is travelling with.

He has two caravans, two horses, and three or four men travelling with him, and he has been offered £93 for the model.

To the Bench: I know he has not been able to work lately. My husband did not offer to take me with him travelling.

To Mr. Thompson: My husband is carrying on with other women, and I had to leave him.

To the Bench: If he treats me properly, I will go back to him.

The Bench suggested an adjournment for a fortnight, to see if a settlement could be effected. ,

Mr. Thompson said if an order was made negotiations could be opened up, and if an amicable settlement was come to, the order need not be enforced. ;

The Senr.-sergt said he looked upon it that if an order was made he had to see to the enforcement of it.

Order made for payment of £1 a week for 12 months, and costs; first payment on the 14th inst. Lithgow Mercury (NSW: 1898 - 1954) Friday 4 March 1904 p 6

Bridget Ann Lewis, valued at £2. Bridget Ann Lewis, wife of John Lewis, residing at the Zigzag, Lithgow, Lithgow Mercury (NSW: 1898 - 1954) Friday 11 March 1904 p 6

LINDSAY-The Relatives ond Friends of Mr. ROBERT LINDSAY and FAMILY are Invited to attend the Funeral of his dearly beloved WIFE and their MOTHER, Elfrida Frances Lindsay; to leave her late residence. 57 Boronia Avenue, Epping, THIS AFTERNOON, at 2 15 o'clock, on route to St. Alban's Church of England. Epping, for service at 2.30, thence to Crematorium, Northern Suburbs. The Sydney Morning Herald 18 April 1938

Was a `wet nurse' to Grace Lindsay, daughter of George and Helena Lindsay of `Horsley'.


An interesting wedding took place at Dapto on Wednesday, when one of the best known and most popular young ladies in the district, Miss Elfrida Frances, second and oldest unmarried daughter of Mrs. Jones, of the Post Office Stores, Dapto, was united in the bond of holy   matrimony with Mr. Robert Lindsay, oldest son of Mr. George Lindsay, of Sunnyside, Dapto. The day was beautifully fine, and as both of the contracting parties were great favourites in the district, all Dapto turned out with the meridian sun to give   the young couple a cheerful start in life. St. Luke's Anglican Church, Dapto, where the ceremony was performed, was very gaily decorated, the beautiful ornamentation of the interior of the sacred edifice with flowers and foliage and floral and fern arches having been a labour of love on the part of a number of the ladies of Dapto. The road from the bride's mother's residence to the church presented an animated scene as the bridal party passed along, and the friendly spectators manifested much interest and jubilation. The occupants of the eight traps taking part in the wedding procession looked sprightly and joyful, the gay and pleasing attires and countenances of the relatives and intimate friends adding a charm to the merry turnout. The throng of smiling faces around the front of the church on the arrival there of the wedding party must have been gratifying to the bride and bridegroom. The bride was dressed in grey, trimmed with white swansdown. She wore a very handsome bridal veil and a pretty wreath of orange blossoms. The bride carried an extremely beautiful bouquet sent specially from Sydney, and wore an exquisite gold brooch presented to her by the bridegroom. There were six bridesmaids, viz., Miss Addie Jones, sister of the bride; Miss Cassie Lindsay, Miss Mima Lindsay, Miss Annie Lindsay, and Miss Effie Lindsay, sisters of the bridegroom ; and Miss Ethel Jones, sister of the bride. Miss Addie Jones and Miss Cassie Lindsay were dressed in pale blue, Miss Mima and Miss Annie Lindsay were robed in butter cup, and Miss Effie Lindsay and Miss Ethel Jones were attired in white. Each bridesmaid carried a beautiful bouquet, and each wore a very pretty gold brooch presented to her by the bridegroom. It is needless to say that the bridesmaids looked scarcely less charming than the bride, notwithstanding that the sun shone forth so brightly and genially for her sole pleasure and happiness, and they were all much admired by those who feasted onlywith their eyes, as well as by the guests proper. Mr. Thomas Lindsay, son of Mr. John Lindsay, of Kembla Park, Unanderra, was the best man. The bride's brother, Mr. Clement Jones, gave his sister away, and the Rev. James Stack tied the nuptial knot most truly after the style so gratifying to true lovers. The path of the happy couple as they were leaving the church was made as flowery as could be desired by showers of bouquets from all directions, and during this delightful proceeding were heard the charming strains of Mendelssohn’s beautiful ' Wedding March,' which was very ably played by Miss Evans, daughter of Mr E. R. Evans, J.P., of Penrose, Dapto. Immediately afterwards an excellent wedding breakfast was partaken of at the residence of the bride's mother, the meal being tastefully and temptingly laid out. About 30 guests sat down to the repast. The wedding cake, from the F. F. and Ice Company, Sydney, was a very handsome one, and was greatly admired by all. It was three tier and almond-iced, with a crown and vase on the top. The ornamentation of the cake came in for much laudation. The Rev. J. Staock proposed ' The Bride and Bridegroom' in felicitous terms, and the bridegroom appropriately responded. The best man proposed 'The bridesmaids' with becoming praise, and Mr. Clement Jones suitably responded. Several other toasts were proposed and duly honoured.

The newly-married couple left Dapto by the 3.10 p.m. train. A great number of friends accompanied them to the station, which was crowded when the train arrived. When the train departed the best of wishes went with Mr. and Mrs. R. Lindsay — such wishes as can only be expressed by rice and old boots and shoes, of which there were showers. The travelling dress worn by Mrs. Lindsay was of Chicago tweed, trimmed with brown fur, the robe being admirably matched with a very pretty hat. At Kembla Grange, Unan derra, and Wollongong stations consider able numbers of friends were assembled to give the happy couple a good send-off, and the cheers from the platforms were as enthusiastic as they were hearty at Dapto. The greeting at Wollongong was most cordial. Mr. and Mrs. Lindsay proceed to Melbourne, where they will spend their honeymoon. When they return to Dapto they will reside at ' Kalmar.' By some strike of good luck a travelling brass band appeared at Mrs. Jones's residence early in the day, and the musicians were heartily welcomed. They played all kinds of lively tunes, which helped to infuse joyfulness into all around. Their rousing airs filled all with merriment, and the beaming faces of young and old soon became indications of friskiness and legs loose enough for dancing. The bandsmen soon concluded they were quite at home, as they undoubtedly were, and that their appearance on the scene to take no small part in the merrymaking was welcomed with gladness was proved by the generous and festive way in which they were treated throughout the day. In the evening a dance and social party was given by Mrs. Jones, in honour of the wedding, at her residence, principally for the young people, of whom about 50 took part. Dancing, singing, and games were kept up till early morning, Mr. Alfred Brown taking a very prominent part in the evening's entertainment. He was quite the host, and he was most successful in keeping the ball a-rolling. Supper and refreshments were laid in the dining room. At supper a number of toasts were heartily honoured, the principal one being that of ' The Hostess,' proposed by Mr. Ludwig Riemenschneider, of Sydney, who spoke very eulogistically of Mrs. Jones. The following is a list of the presents on view at Mrs. Jones on the wedding night, all of which were very handsome : — Mrs. G. Lindsay, silver pickle cruet ; Mrs. J. Lindsay, silver egg cruet ; Mrs Peterson, silver cake basket ; Mrs. George Lindsay, pair of vases ; Mrs. Stack, toilet set ; Mrs. Reid, lamp ; Mrs. Raynor, cutlery ; Mrs. Prior, glassware ; Mrs. Thomas Lindsay, silver egg cruet ; Miss Mima Lindsay, marble clock ; Miss Ann Lindsay, satin cushion ; Miss Effie Lindsay, picture; Miss Cassie Lindsay, plush cosey ; Miss   Addie Jones, silver jam stand ; Miss Ethel Jones, bread platter; Mrs. J.

Second husband may have returned to England Husband a miner.


Thomas Goldswarthy was charged that he did at Minmi, on the 5th February, assault one Rebecca Lundgren with intent to commit a rape.

The accused was also charged on a second count with indecently assaulting the said

Rebecca Lundgren.

Mr. Moriarty, instructed by Mr. Cronin, appeared for the accused, who challenged two jurymen.

His Honor ordered that all persons under the age of 21 years leave the court.

The prosecutrix stated that she was a widow residing at Minmi. On the morning of the 5th ultimo she was cutting wood at a little distance from her house, when the accused approached, and wished her good morning. She asked the reason he was not at work, and he replied because he was sick. She made a remark to the effect that he had been to see some old woman up the town. He cut some pieces of wood, and told her to pick them up. She stooped to do so, and he caught her by the shoulders and made an indecent proposal, She refused, and he pushed her to the ground, and attempted to assault her. She struggled and screamed until a neighbour named Agnes Wilson appeared. The accused then ran away, and she proceeded home,

By Mr. Moriarty: Witness had been a widow nearly eight months, and had five children. She had known Mrs. Wilson and her daughter for about five years. The accused had lodged with the Wilsons for about seven months. The spot where she had been cutting the wood was situated about 100 yards from the public road between Wallsend and Minmi. Witness had a sister living with her, and this person was at home on the day she saw the accused. He had been about her yard a good many times, but she had not been in the habit of calling him by his christian name. She saw Mrs. Wilson shortly after the occurrence, but did not tell her that the accused had not done much to her.

Agnes Wilson, a young girl residing with her father, Alexander Wilson, at Minmi, stated that on the morning referred to Mrs. Lundgren's little daughter came to her, and said something, in consequence of which witness ran with her towards the creek and saw the prosecutrix and the accused. The former said in a flurried manner, “Go away, Tom'”

By his Honor : The prosecutrix was not calling out or screaming.

By the Crown: The parties were in a prostrate position, but when witness appeared the accused ran away. Witness then returned to her mother, who went to the prosecutrix's house, and Mrs. Lundgren made a complaint to her.

Senior-constable Rodgers, of Minmi, stated that, in consequence of something he heard from a man named Wilson on the 5th February, he went to Mrs. Lundgren, who made a complaint about the accused. After the latter was arrested witness spoke to him, and he said he knew what the police wanted, -it was about the prosecutrix. He had been passing her when she was cutting wood, and she gave him a push. He then knocked her down and put his hand on her leg, as he had often done before. She denied that he had ever done so before.

Agnes Wilson, recalled by the jury, stated that the prosecutrix was lying quite still when witness went up, but she began to struggle afterwards

For the defence, Grace Wilson stated that Mrs. Lundgren lived in the next house to er. One afternoon prior to the 5th February the accused, prosecutrix, and two other young women played rounders between the two houses, and ran about a good deal. On the 6th of the month witness asked prosecutrix what Tom had been doing, and she said she did not know. Witness said if he had insulted her she should send for Senior-Constable Rodgers, and she (prsecutrix) said “Oh, no.” Witness afterwards asked the accused what had taken place between him and Mrs. Lundgren, and he replied that there two sides to the story.

He was very steady, and had borne an excellent character.

This concluded the evidence.

In addressing the jury, Mr. Moriarty pointed out that it would have to be clearly shown that the prosecutrix was not a consenting party before the accused could be found guilty. She had asserted in the box that she had never been on intimate terms with him, yet it had been proved that she played a game with him some time previously.

More than that, she had when he approached on the day in question made a significant reference to his doings in the town. He (Mr. Moriarty) asked what the jury could make of it. He did not intend to waste the time of the Court needlessly, as he felt sure of the result that would be arrived at.

His Honor reviewed the evidence very briefly, and stated that the reference of the prosecutrix regarding the accused's illness could only bear one construction.

The jury retired ,at a quarter past 2 o'clock, and returned at five minutes past 4 o'clock with a verdict of not guilty. The accused was accordingly discharged.Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners' Advocate (NSW : 1876 - 1954) Thursday 3 March 1892 p 7

Born on 16th July, 1834, in the parish of Harray, in Pomona, he was James Linklater, who in due course became a builder, and on 8th January, 1857, he was wed to Mary Flett, also born in the same parish on 3rd July, 1830, the officiating minister being Rev. Adam White, of the Free Church of Scotland.

The newly-wed couple sailed almost immediately for New South Wales in the immigrant ship John Bunyan, and the circumstances of their arrival in Sydney on 28th October, 1857, vividly recall two of the most tragic maritime disasters chronicled in the annals of the colony.

On the night of 20th August, 1857, whilst approaching the entrance to Port Jackson, the ill-fated Dunbar was driven ashore and foundered with the loss of many lives, and, little more than two months later, on 24th October, 1857, the Catherine Adamson came to grief off North Head with further loss of life, according to P. W. Gledhill's booklet on the historic tombstones of Camperdown cemetery.

The John Bunyan, aboard which were the Linklater’s, seems to have accompanied the Catherine Adamson on at least the latter part of the voyage, but stood out because of fog, whilst the other ship attempted to go in, and thus escaped the fate which overtook her companion.

Kiama was the home of James and his bride during 1858 and 1859, and Picton from 1860 to 1863, and to them was born a son, John Flett Linklater, on 16th June, 1860, at Picton. Between this son and twentieth-century literature exists an interesting link, inasmuch as he was a cousin of the well-known novelist, biographer and dramatist, Eric Linklater, author of 'Private Angelo,' 'Juan in America' and numerous other works.

As time passed, and the rails which were to revolutionise transport moved ever and ever southward, James Linklater, grandfather of Mr. S. J. Linklater of Willoughby, to whom I am indebted for these interesting family details, moved with his family, to Bong Bong in 1864, and to Moss Vale in 1866, meanwhile constructing bridges along the route. From these dates may be gauged the progress of the railway to Goulburn.

Later, after similar work on the North Shore and other lines, Linklater and his family returned to Moss Vale, settling in Argyle Street, and subsequently he built many of the public buildings, including what is now the E., S. and A. Bank, a bank at Burrawang, and numbers of residences in the district. James, at the time of his death, was at Lismore, and the parents of Mr. S. J. Linklater, who was born at Sutton Forest, eventually left Moss Vale district for

Willoughby, in May, 1921. John Flett Linklater, incidentally, was one of the founders of Moss Vale Presbyterian Church, and his son tells me that in the early days Moss Vale folk went to Sutton… The Southern Mail (Bowral, NSW : 1889 - 1954) Friday 9 July 1948 p 7

JENKINS- WALDRON.—January 22, at Pyrmont Bridge-road, Glebe, by the Rev. Dr. Fullerton, Alfred Matcham Jenkins, youngest son of the late William Warren Jenkins, Esq., J.P., of Berkley, Illawarra, to Bessie Emily Waldron, third daughter of   Alfred Waldron, Esq., of Springhill, Illawarra. The Sydney Morning Herald 5 February 1885

She had absolute custody of the children after her divorce from Alfred Jenkins and he had no leave of access to them.

WILLIAM LISTER-LISTER, of Redan-street, Mosman, the well known landscape painter, described to the City Coroner (Mr. E. T. Oram) last week how his wife, Mrs. Bessie Enid Lister-Lister, 65, had recently come by her death in a most unusual manner.

At the conclusion of the evidence Mr. Oram found that the woman had died from toxaemia accelerated by accidental injuries sustained through a fall.

'About 6.30 pm. on July 29' declared the painter, 'my wife was in the dining-room. I was in the kitchen at the time and she called out to me.

'I went into the dining-room and she was lying on the floor near an over turned chair. She told me she had been moving the chair, it slipped, and she fell.'

The medical report of Dr. E. A. Tibey, who attended Mrs. Lister-Lister, stated that her '. . . left hip was injured and the pain was so great that an anaesthetic had to be administered in order to get her to bed. There was a fracture of the neck of the thigh-bone.

'In my opinion,' the report concluded, 'her death was due to toxaemia brought on by acute dilation of the stomach, which was due to shock and prolonged anaesthesia in an elderly subject.' Truth (Sydney, NSW : 1894 - 1954) Sunday 18 August 1935 p 24

Death of Mrs. Liston

Members of the A.W.U. and the friends of Mr. Tom Liston, a member of the editorial staff of 'The Worker,' and who has also been a member and official of the AW.U. for a number of years, will regret to hear of the death of his mother, Mrs. Sarah Ellen Liston, which took place on Saturday night last in Sydney, after a comparatively brief illness.

Mrs. Liston, who was a native of Sligo, Ireland, came to this country when she was 18 years of age, and she was married to Mr. Tom Liston, a native of Limerick, who in the early days worked as a navvy on railway construction works of this State, and who' subsequently followed the occupation of a store keeper at Kiama and Mogo, in the south coast districts.

Thirty-five years ago Mrs. Liston was left a widow with seven young children, the eldest of whom (Tom Liston) was only 18 years of age. After the death of her husband, Mrs. Liston moved to Sydney with her family, where she resided ever since,

A stalwart Laborite and a very Charitable woman, Mrs. Liston will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends and acquaintances.

She is survived by four sons, one of whom, Mr. Jack Liston, is a member and a Rep. of the A.W.U. at Cockatoo Island.

The funeral, which took place on Monday morning at the Northern Suburbs Cemetery, after a Requiem Mass which was celebrated at St. Vincent's Church, Ashfield, was largely attended.

The burial service at the graveside was conducted by the Rev. parish priest of Ashfield. The Australian Worker (Sydney, NSW : 1913 - 1950) Wednesday 22 May 1946 p 3

Death Of Mrs. Little

It is with profound regret we record the death of Mrs Edith E. Little (proprietress of the 'South Coast Times.')

The end came yesterday at a private hospital at Mosman, after an illness of brief duration.

The late Mrs. Little was the relict of the late Mr. M. J. Little, who founded the 'South Coast Times' [formerly the Wollongong Argus) in 1901. Mr. Little predeceased his wife at the latter end of 1907

There is one daughter, Mrs. Moana Edith Dee, of Mosman.

Mrs. Little resided at Wollongong until about seven years ago, when she removed to Sydney, but she regularly visited the town and this office.

Hers was a gentle and kindly nature, generous to those in less fortunate circumstances and a devoted mother and grandmother.

The remains will be laid to rest in the C. of E. cemetery, Wollongong, alongside those of her late husband to-morrow (Saturday) afternoon, the cortege moving from St. Michael's Church of England at 2 o'clock. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 23 June 1939 p 14

She moved to Sutherland after her first husband died.

Kate was an early pioneer midwife who supported and cared for mothers of the Sutherland Shire. In the early 1900s, with few doctors practising in the area, the care and support Nurse Lobb provided was vital and she became a popular figure on her horse and sulky heading off at all hours when a birth was imminent. The respect that she earned was acknowledged by her epitaph on her headstone in Woronora Cemetery after her death in 1939.

The death occurred in the Kiama District Hospital on Wednesday night of Mrs. Emily Jane Longbottom, of Bong Bong Street, Kiama, a very well-known and highly respected citizen who will be greatly missed. For some months she had cheerfully borne a painful illness, and the end was not entirely unexpected.

She was well-known as the wife and mother of one, of the most prominent family of cricketers on the South Coast, and naturally she was a keen follower of the game herself, rarely missing a match played on the showground before her last illness overtook her.

She had reared a large family and was a splendid helpmate and mother, yet she found time for an amount of public work that few people are able to perform, There is not an organisation in the town:- hospital, Ambulance, Agricultural Society, Returned Soldiers League, Parents and Citizens Association, Football, Cricket and Tennis Clubs, to mention only a few, that does not gratefully remember the assistance she was always so willing to give. In support of any of their functions. She was an absolutely tireless worker for any good cause, and her place will indeed be hard to fill. Her good-hearted and cheerful personality had gained for her a wide circle of friends who will sincerely mourn the passing of one who always gave of her best.

The late Mrs Longbottom was born at Gerringong, the daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Joseph Lucas and she married Mr. Esau Longbottom and spent practically the whole of her life in Kiama. She is survived by her husband, four sons, Messrs, William, Arthur, Henry and John Longbottom of Kiama and four daughters, Dorothy (Mrs E Heggarty, Kiama, Winifred (Mrs T. McDonald Kiama), Grace (Mrs C. Cardwell, Minnamurra) and Millie (Mrs J. Dyer, Bathurst). Also two brothers Messrs Thomas (Kiama) and Fred Lucas (Nowra) and two sisters, Mrs Carlson (Cronulla) and Mrs E, Nicholls (Kiama) to all of whom sympathy is extended in their bereavement.

The Funeral took place at the Presbyterian Cemetery, Kiama, yesterday afternoon, the Rev. G. M. Torbett officiating. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 19 November 1938 p 2

Minnie Longbottom charged her husband, John Longbottom, with assaulting her on the 1st inst.

Defendant pleaded not guilty, but admitted having assaulted her more than 20 times previously. The assault complained of was proved to the satisfaction of the Bench, and the defendant was sentenced to 6 months in Wollongong Gaol with hard labour. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW: 1863 - 1947) Friday 22 August 1884 p 2

John Longbottom, arrested by virtue of warrant, was charged with assaulting his wife, Minnie Longbottom, at Albion Park, on the previous Tuesday.

Constable Banks deposed that on arresting defendant he said:-” She struck me on the hand with a stick and aggravated me;“ he did not deny the charge.

Minnie Longbottom deposed that on Tuesday, 24th instant, her husband John Longbottom, came home under the influence of drink; he accused her of taking a purse containing £2; she said she did not touch it, or see any of his money ; he turned round and said she was a liar, and caught her by the hair of the head and threw her on the floor, and kicked her on the head until she was not able to stand; he had his boots on; he kicked her at the back of the right ear, and on the right and left side just above the forehead ; she was lying on the floor where he knocked her down he made her head bleed in two places so much that her hair became matted he then left off, and she went and washed her head; he beat her in Shellharbour the same way before, when he was sent to Wollongong gaol for six months for assaulting her; she had five children and had of late to support them herself; the publicans got what he earned.

By the defendant: I struck you on the hand with a bit of stick because you were drinking grog with others in a gully ; you came home to make fun of me by saying you were going to meet first this girl and then another ; I did not receive the blows from my sister, but from your boots.

Defendant declined to go into the witness box to contradict the statement that he inflicted the wounds by kicking the prosecutrix.

John Longbottom, charged with assaulting his wife, Minnie Longbottom, pleaded not guilty. Constable Nies deposed to the arrest of defendant, at Albion Park, by virtue of a warrant ; defendant said if he got into trouble over it, he would ' do' for his wife when he got out.'

Minnie Longbottom deposed that she was the wife of defendant: on Thursday morning he accused her of taking a half-sovereign from his pocket ; she said she had not done so, whereupon he called her a liar, and struck her in the face with his fist ; he afterwards put her out of the house, smashed all the crockery in the place, and tore up her clothes ; she gave him no provocation whatever.

By defendant: I was not drinking as well as you; I did not send for grog on Christmas Day ;

I did not smash the things myself.

Defendant deposed that he had been working on Bulli Mountain for some time past; he went home on the day before Christmas, and at the request of his wife he got some grog, which they both drank ; on Thursday morning he accused her of taking a half-sovereign and four shillings from his pocket ; she then turned the place upside down herself, and said she would go to Wollongong and get a warrant for his arrest, as people would believe her sooner than him ; she sent a letter for him to come home on Christmas ; she had on previous occasions got him put out of situations by her conduct.

In reply to the Bench, complainant said she did not send a letter to her husband asking him to come home; she requested that he might be leniently with.

Mrs. Sarah Looney, widow of the late Mr. Michael Looney, passed away in a Wollongong private hospital on Wednesday. Born at Manchester, England, seventy-six years ago, the deceased came to Australia as a young girl, and soon after her marriage settled at 'Mount Pleasant.'

After the death of her husband nine years ago she left the district and lived at Brighton le Sands. About six months ago she returned to Wollongong and lived with her son, Mr. Alfred C. Looney, of 29 Gladstone ave, Wollongong. Since then she had suffered ill health and had been an inmate of the hospital.

The late Mrs. Looney had been a resident of the Wollongong district for over fifty years. Her late husband had been a coal miner all his life and worked at Mount Pleasant and other coastal collieries.

Mr. A. C. Looney, who for many years has conducted a produce merchant's business in Wollongong, is the only surviving member of the family.

Perth. October 12.

Evidence was given in the Divorce Court to-day in the case in which Alfred George Russell applied for the dissolution of his marriage with Marion Frances Russell. The ground of application was that the respondent had committed adultery at St. Kilda on various occasions with William George Arthur Lovelle, of the Victorian, Expeditionary Forces, who was named as co-respondent. The evidence showed that the parties were married in Sydney in 1891 and came to Perth later. The petitioner went, to Broome in 1912, the respondent going to Melbourne to educate her daughter Gladys. She met Lovelle, who was instructor of cadets in Perth. He gave her a dog, and when she joined the petitioner in Broome she wanted to take the dog to bed with her.

Sergeant-Major Hounsell, of, the Victorian Expeditionary Forces, said the respondent passed Lovelle off as her brother and lived with him at St. Kilda. In January, 1915, Lovelle went to the front, and in January 1916, the petitioner received from the dead letter office a letter his wife had written to Lovelle at the front, calling him her own darling husband. The petitioner went to Melbourne, and in three days secured enough evidence to proceed against half a dozen co-respondents. He had threatened to take action against Mr. Pearce, secretary of the Police Board, but the latter committed suicide the same night.

The case was undefended, and a decree nisi was granted, with costs against Lovelle. The Express and Telegraph (Adelaide, SA: 1867 - 1922) Friday 13 October 1916 p 3



Arthur G. Russell, pearling boat owner and storekeeper of Broome, has many valuable pearls deposited at a Broome bank. Recently he took divorce proceedings against his former wife, Marion Frances Russell (now Mrs. Lovelle), who subsequently married co-respondent mentioned in the divorce action. This morning, before Mr. Justice Booth, Mrs, Lovelle sought to recover all her former husband's property, derived from the pearl trading and the store business, which she claims were carried on in her name. One of the pearls, it was announced, is probably worth between £5,000 and £6,000. Mr. R. R, Pilkington, K.C., and Mr. M. G. Lavan (instructed by Smith and Lavan) appeared for Mrs. Lovelle, and defendant was represented by Mr. H. P. Downing and Mr. W. H. Ackland (instructed by Durston and Ackland). The claim set out that defendant carried on business as a storekeeper and pearler in Broome, at first under his own name, and afterwards under the name of A. G. Russell and Co. the business being the property of the plaintiff. Defendant was her manager and agent The company owned the luggers Alpha, Eagle, Oroates, and Gerald, and a quantity of stores, besides the pearls. Defendant carried on the business and made large profits, concerning which he had refused, to make any account to plaintiff, and had claimed the same, together with the business, as his property. Plaintiff claimed that a declaration be made that the business and assets are her property. The defence denied that the business belonged to plaintiff, and that defendant was plaintiff's manager and agent. The assets of the business did not comprise any luggers, stores, or pearls. Defendant, did not carry on the business, nor make profits, the business, assets mentioned in the claim being the property of the defendant. Alternatively, defendant said that plaintiff leased to defendant the pearl luggers Eagle and Alpha. Plaintiff said that she resided in Melbourne, and was married to Captain Lovelle. Previously she was the wife of defendant, whom she married in New South Wales 26 years ago. He was then a hotelkeeper. After remaining in business for about three years they left the hotel, defendant at the time having very little money. Coming to Western Australia she taught music and played at concerts in Perth. The attendance at her musical classes averaged about 30 pupils. Her husband established a produce business in William-street, and he received, the money plaintiff earned through musical teaching. With money derived from the produce business, a block of land at Victoria Park was purchased. Later on the Broken Hill Hotel was erected on the block with money borrowed from a bank. Defendant told plaintiff that, in consideration of the help she had given him, he would place the William-street business in her name. . The banking account was also placed in her name. In 1910, plaintiff said she went to England, returning about 16 months later. About six months after she came back the Broken Hill Hotel was sold by defendant for over £4,000. The whole of the land was not sold with the hotel. Defendant said he wiped out the bank overdraft with part of the proceeds of the sale of the hotel, and he went to Broome with the remainder of the money. Plaintiff remained here at defendant's request, and collected various debts, on the William-street business. Subsequently the balance of the land at Victoria Park was sold for about £260. Russell had previously explained that he was going to Broome solely to undertake pearling operations. He got two luggers in plaintiff's name. Defendant forwarded her certain documents for her to sign, including a power of attorney and authority for him to operate the bank account. About May, 1913 plaintiff went to Broome, remaining there three months. The store was carried on under the name of A. G. Russell and Co. Before plaintiff went to Broome defendant wrote and told her that the profits from the store were from £40 to £50 a week. This statement he verified verbally when plaintiff was at Broome. She left for Melbourne, where she received a number of telegrams, one of which included the following passages: — 'Splendid luck, beautiful blister, best seen in Broome years.' In a subsequent letter, defendant said that he had been told that the pearl was worth between £5,000 and £6,000. (Proceeding.) The Daily News (Perth, WA: 1882 - 1950) Wednesday 26 September 1917 p 6

The salient facts of the case depended mostly on documents, and all were in favour of the claim of the plaintiff, and were hopelessly against the defendant. After reviewing all the evidence very carefully, he had come to the conclusion that his judgment must be for the plaintiff on the claim and counter-claim.

The evidence of prosecutor was to the effect that on the 12thMay she purchased a dress piece at Bright and Co.'s ; she was so drunk at the time that she did not remember having purchased it ; some time afterwards she received the account for it, and she then remembered having purchased it ; she obtained a pattern of it, and later on she saw accused wearing the dress ; she asked her where she had obtained the stuff, and she gave her several contradictory replies, using language the reverse of polite ; she produced the pattern of the dress piece she had purchased, which she said was exactly similar to the dress she had seen accused wearing. George Madden, draper, in the employ of Bright and Co., remembered prosecutor purchasing a dress piece of similar pattern to the sample produced; similar material might have been purchased at other stores in town. His Worship said prosecutor had failed to prove the charge, and dismissed the case. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 19 August 1890 p 2

A married woman named Mrs Luck, residing m Mrs. Weller's cottage, at the corner of Campbell and Church-streets, died suddenly on Friday morning last. It appears the husband was away at work at Mount Kembla, and the wife had not been too well for some days. On Friday she got out of bed and succeeded in dressing the three children. She then lay down again and almost immediately expired. The cause of death was an affection of the heart.

The funeral took place on Saturday, the interment being in the Church of England cemetery. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Wednesday 15 June 1904 p 2

At the time respondent was a widower, having been lawfully married on July 31, 1900, to Elizabeth Jane Luck (then Elizabeth Jane Redden), widow, and the natural mother of petitioner.

There passed away at the residence of her daughter, Bulli-road, Wollongong an old and highly respected resident of Wollongong Mrs. Catherine Lynch. Deceased who had reached the age of 78 years was a native of County Tyrone, Ireland and came to this state in the ship Morning Star 58 years ago. The late Mrs. Lynch was a most devout. Catholic. The Very Rev Father Dunne, P.P., V.F., made feeling reference to the deceased lady at 7 o 'clock Mass on Easter Sunday morning, and again at the graveside, when he said God had chosen a holy time to call a good Christian Catholic to her reward. The funeral was very largely attended. Mrs. Lynch's husband died some 13 years ago. A grown-up family of three sons and two daughters are left to mourn the loss of a good mother.

LYNES-CUTTS—May 4th, by special license, at 105, Prince- street, by the Rev. John Reid, of the Mariners' Church, William Lynes, native of Shoalhaven, to Frances Cutts, daughter of David Cutts, Yorkshire, England.  The Sydney Morning Herald 21 May 1864


To the Editor of the Herald.

SIR,-I noticed in your issue of this morning, in the usual place, the marriage of William Lynes, a native of Shoalhaven, to Frances Cutts, daughter of David Cutts, Yorkshire, England, by the Rev. John Reid. Now this is a very ingenious insertion of a marriage, and which most certainly, if true, should have a place in the ordinary calendar of the country.

It may not be within the knowledge of the Rev. Mr. Reid that by the law applicable to this colony, with regard to savage tribes and natives of the Pacific Islands, no contract of any kind is binding. It appears, however, in the face of what he aught to have known, that he has attempted to bind on aboriginal black by the ties of marriage with a white woman.

This native of Shoalhaven, who has been styled “William Lynes” is without a local habitation or a name, except that name by which he is known among the few remaining blacks of Illawarra, and which doubtless was according to custom bestowed upon him at his birth, big “Bungela.”  

Physiologists-abroad, and all writers on the history of Australia-agree that these darkies hold about the lowest position in the human scale. It is a well-known fact that these unfortunate people have no idea of a future state, nor do they ever express an opinion on religious subjects. This is clear and unmistakable, there is no susceptibility in their character to religious impressions, nor can you convey to them any notion of a Deity - it is all beyond their comprehension. The only marriage ceremony known to the aboriginals of this country is either by dragging the bride away from her friends and coercing by a sound drubbing-or betrothal from infancy.

Therefore, for the first time In the history of New South Wales, the marriage ceremony has been performed by the Rev. John Reid between Bungela, an aboriginal, and Fanny Cutts, an Englishwoman. Surely, such an idea must have suggested to the curator a something wrong in the intellect of the woman; he never could have suspected her of believing that she had discovered her lost Endymion in the person of this peculiar odoriferous darkie-without a house, home, habitation, or a name. No good can come of it, and most likely the unfortunate woman is consigned to ruin and perdition.

Yours, &c.,

ARGO.The Sydney Morning Herald 20 May 1864

In a reply from Rev Reid “It is said that the aboriginal “Is without a local habitation and a name.” Ibis is false. His name is William Lynes, he is a farm servant at Rose Bay, and his father is William Lynes, farmer. These facts are certified by him in my marriage register, and confirmed by Charles Pratt, a farm-servant with him, at Rose Bay, and who was one of the witnesses at the marriage.

The bridegroom Is characterised as a ” peculiar odoriferous darkie,“ and, by implication, be is represented as a rude and ill-clothed savage On the contrary, the man is respectful in his manners, converses rationally, he appeared to me to be as well attired as any clergyman in the city. And as to the bride, Frances Cutts, Instead of being “wrong in her intellect,” as she is stated to be, she is a most intelligent person, writes her own name in good penmanship, and seemed to me to be even superior to many in the same rank and condition in life.

A melancholy accident occurred on Monday evening, which resulted in the death of a fine young boy about four years old, a son of Mr James Lyons, formerly Librarian at the School of Arts. Mr Lyons about a fortnight since removed from the School of Arts to the house formerly occupied by Captain Scott, and at the foot of the paddock on which the cottage stands, there is a small waterhole which does not generally contain more than a foot or eighteen inches of water, but during the present moist weather that depth is somewhat increased. In the afternoon of Monday, Mrs Lyons left home for the purpose of transacting some little matters of business in town, and between four and five in the evening the poor little fellow whose death we have to record was found floating in the water hole before mentioned. On being seen by a brother some year or two older than deceased, he was immediately taken out of the water. And although Dr. Marshall was immediately sent for and quickly in attendance and every effort made to restore animation, it was of no avail as life was extinct.
