On Monday last the 28th inst, the Golden Wedding of Mr. and Mrs Edwin Neate was celebrated at their home, Walter Street, where they have lived over 30 years.

During the evening suitable presents were presented to the aged couple, and a very enjoyable evening was spent. Our best wishes blend with those present, that Mr. and Mrs Neate may live many, many years yet and enjoy to the full their well deserved rest, in the autumn time of their life.

Charge of Adultery.

Adultery was the ground upon which Edith Eliza Neich, formerly Rae, sought a divorce from Herbert Augustus Richardson Neich in the Divorce Court yesterday, before Mr. Justice Simpson. They were married in March, 1893. An appearance was entered on behalf of the respondent but cthere was no answer.

Petitioner said she knew her husband seven years before she married him. After marriage they lived four or five years at Granville, where he had a store. After that they lived at the Exchange Hotel, Pitt and Bridge streets, of which her husband was licensee. They lived there till 1900. There were two children of the marriage. About 18 months before their separation in, January, 1900, there were disagreements. . He used to leave home about 7 p.m., and return about half past ten and he used to take exception to her asking him where he had been. She went out one evening, and he asked her where she had been. She said at her sister's. He said she was a liar, and she would have to go, and if she refused he would sell out and leave her, and the children to starve. They separated, and an agreement was drawn up. She went to live with her mother at Newtown. He allowed her £2 a week, and £3 when she was ill.

Evidence was given in support of the charge of adultery against respondent. The alleged misconduct was said to have taken place at a hotel in Oxford-street with a barmaid.

A decree nisi was granted, returnable in three months. The Australian Star (Sydney, NSW : 1887 - 1909) Tuesday 16 June 1903 Page 6

Obituary. MRS. ANNIE NELSON. The death occurred in the Kiama Hospital on Monday afternoon of Mrs. Annie Nelson, wife of Mr. Wm. Nelson. The deceased, who was 50 years of age, had been suffering for the past two years with heart trouble and rheumatism, and had been an inmate of the Hospital for about a fortnight, here her daughter, Florrie, affectionately assisted in the nursing. The late Mrs. Nelson was born in Sydney, and had been a resident of Kiama for 35 years. She was devoted to her family in every sense of the term, and her death will leave a vacancy in the home that can never be filled.

The funeral took place yesterday afternoon from St. Peter's .Church, the Rev. M. P. Malone officiating at the graveside.

OBITUARY. MRS. ANDREW NELSON. ON Saturday morning, 7th September, just before the dawn, as briefly mentioned in a previous issue, there passed away one where kindly presence and loving comfort had cheered many a sad and sorrowful person in the days when the homes of Gerringong were more scattered than they are now. In Mrs. Andrew Nelson the sick or the needy over found a friend, a warm hearted and unselfish neighbour. Her name was ca household word for benevolence and hospitality, which is left as a heritage to her children, and their children, in its revered memory one indeed, to be proud of. Mrs. Nelson was born its County Tyrone, Ireland, in 1831, and thus had reached the age of 73 years. She sailed from the home country in August, 1855, arriving m Sydney four months later. Shortly after she removed to Omega, where in the following year she was married to Mr. Andrew Nelson. They settled at their farm, “Willow Vale,” living there for 35 years, beloved and respected by all who knew them. Afterwards they removed to “Clairview,” where their golden wedding was celebrated 12 months ago, and where Mrs. Nelson's days were ended. Besides her husband, she left four sons (two sons having died in childhood) and one daughter (Mrs. Jas. Sharpe) to mourn their loss. As a devoted wife and mother, Mrs. Nelson shone the brightest, never for a moment studying her own interests if theirs were to be considered; and little interest was taken in public affairs by her beyond the necessities of those around her in alleviating distress and carrying the balm of her truly Christian sympathy and help, She was a faithful adherent of the Methodist Church, where her place was never vacate unless prevented by domestic duties, or health did not permit; and at the church she attended so long, and in whose cause she had been a liberal and whole hearted worker, a memorial service is to be hold next Sunday by the Rev, 0. Stead. The late Mrs. Nelson during her life had several very severe illnesses, and an attack of pneumonia, a few years ago left her incapacitated for the part she had hitherto willingly taken over her home duties were too great a tax for her feeble strength. A week previous to her death she was stricken with the prevailing epidemic-influenza which her relatives thought with care would be overcome. It was, however, not to be, and, becoming worse, Dr. Fox was called in, pronouncing the case pleurisy and pneumonia. No hope was given of recovery, and not many hours later she passed peacefully away. During her later years the loving care and attention of the whole family, particularly her daughter (Mrs. Sharpe) and granddaughter (Miss May Sharpe), did much to prolong her life, and gave comfort and happiness in her declining years, The funeral took place on Sunday, and the procession was one of the largest over seen in Gerringong, at a 1ast tribute of the affections and esteem in which she was held by all classes of the community… The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 18 September 1907 p 2

OBITUARY. MRS. WM.NELSON. The death took place, after several weeks illness, of Mrs. Wm. Nelson at her home, Banksia, Gerringong, on Thursday morning; and district wide sympathy is extended to her grief stricken and devoted husband and daughter, Mrs. Harry Miller, also her sister. Mrs. D. F. Bailey, who has given unwearying affection and nursing care the late Mrs. Nelson was Miss Ceily Hindmarsh, eldest daughter of the late Mr and Mrs. George Hindmarsh. From a mother who trained her daughter in the sterling qualities that made herself beloved and reverenced she inherited the inclination to help in church and benevolent work in which for many years she took the keenest interest. During the war the late Mrs. Nelson was deeply concerned in Red Cross activities, and has been president of the Gerringong Red Cross Branch since its inception until she died, for it is one of the few country branches that still carry on. For a couple of years her health has been failing, hut her interest has never slackened. Behind a natural reserve a deep friendship and great kindliness existed, and outside her immediate   family circle many will sincerely regret her passing of a true friend, the warmth of whose greeting was ever the same, and in her home the loss of one of the best as wife and mother will be sadly felt. Sympathy is also extended to the deceased lady's brother, Mr. M. J. Hindmarsh and her other sisters Mesdames D. Richardson and S. Pottie. The funeral took place on Friday afternoon in the Methodist portion of Gerringong cemetery, a large and representative district attendance present, the Rev. F. Todd officiating at the graveside. Many beautiful flowers covered the coffin as a last expression of respect and esteem. Kiama Independent (NSW : 1947 - 1954) Wednesday 18 July 1951 p 3

OBITUARY. THE LATE Mrs. JOHN NELSON. Our last issue mentioned the serious condition of Mrs. Nelson, who had been removed from her home at Jamberoo to Dr. Pope's private hospital to be under the care of a specialist, as her eyes became seriously affected, Meningitis supervening an attack of gastric influenza was the   verdict of the doctors called in consultation, and little hope was given of her recovery from the dread complaint, to which she succumbed, passing peacefully away on Friday morning. Everything that loving care and attention could do was done by her devoted husband and children, and expert medical advice obtained to alleviate her suffering and avert the calamity that has overtaken   them in their great loss. Mrs. Nelson, only 49 years of age, was the mother of a large family, and the loss of her affectionate care and self forgetfulness where they were concerned will mean a void in their lives that can never be filled. She was highly esteemed by all who knew her for her many kindly and sterling qualities, but her home was her kingdom, and her greatest sphere of usefulness in the duties there, with a keen regard for her children's spiritual and physical welfare. In church work she took a genuine interest, and her help was ever readily and heartily given at any function in its aid. Of a sympathetic   disposition, her practical compassion was   manifested to the poor and needy and the   sick and afflicted. Mrs. Nelson was buried at the beautiful Gore Hill cemetery, North Shore, according to the rites of the Methodist Church, on Saturday at 10 o'clock, and all the family (who had gone to Sydney when the worst was known) sorrowfully returned to Jamberoo that evening. Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to Mr. Nelson and family in their great bereavement, and the regard in which they are held throughout the district makes the regret on their behalf wide- spread and sincere.

William Brownlee v. Hamilton Nelson and wife, for £200. for slander. . . '

Mr. O'Meara, instructed by Messrs. Owen and May, appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. Woodward for defendants.

Mr. O'Meara having stated the case, called Plaintiff, who said he was deputy in connection with the Mount Pleasant Colliery, occasionally having control over 150 men ; his was a position' of trust, and such being the case, any damage to his character was likely to be injurious to him ; he had been in the position about nine years, and had received a gratuity in addition to his wages, his employers being so well pleased with his services ; he was of most temperate habits, and had never been w- - — g with Mrs. Forsythe, as stated by defendants ; such had never taken place between him and Mrs.' Forsythe, either before her husband or at any other time ; there was not a word of truth in the accusation, nor in that made by defendants to the effect that he and Mrs. Forsythe had been drinking and w——–g on the Mount Pleasant tramway ; he had never drank a drop of liquor on the tramway with any person ; he had been on good terms with defendants.

Ralph Forsythe deposed that Mrs. Nelson (who was witness' sister) had stated that Brownlee was continually drinking and w——-g with his(witness') wife ; that they were at it sometimes all night, and that, she (Mrs. Nelson) had seen through the window improper intercourse taking place between Brownlee and his (witness') wife ; he and his sons and the Nelsons were working at a cutting on the Mount Kembla railway line, and on Monday, 9th May, young Nelson insulted him, and they had a fight over it ; Nelson and his wife then made the same slanderous statements regarding Brownlee and Mrs. Forsythe ; he afterwards told Brownlee about the remarks, and the latter took proceedings.

George Forsythe, son of the last witness, corroborated the evidence of his father regarding the row and remarks at the cutting. Hamilton Nelson said there was not a word of truth in the statements made by Forsythe and his son ;on the forenoon of Monday, 9th May, at the cutting, Forsythe insulted ono of his (witness') sons and a fight ensued between the two ; this occurred on account of Forsythe on the previous Saturday night having called his (Nelson's) wife a wh—; on the morning his son taxed Forsythe with what he had said about his mother on the Saturday night, and the latter at once asked if his (Nelson's) son wanted to fight the two then went at each other immediately ; not a' word was said about Brownlee or Mrs. Forsythe on the occasion ; the affair arose out of him (Nelsen)' having requested payment of £13 Forsythe owed him ; he always looked upon Mr. Brownlee as a respectable man, and never said a word to the contrary concerning him;- neither did his wife on the occasion referred to, nor at any other time, so far as he was aware ; on the contrary, it was Forsythe that had spoken to him disrespectfully about Mr. Brownlee ; Forsythe told him on one occasion that as he (Forsythe) was lighting the fire one morning, he saw Brownlee through the tail of his eye peeping in at the window, but that on going out he could find no person ; Forsythe was the worse for liquor when he insulted witness' son on the forenoon at the cutting ; a man named William Williams was present all through the affair, and John Larkins heard the first of it.

Mrs. Nelson denied having ever on any occasion said that any improper conduct had taken place between Brownlee and Mrs. Forsythe ; she had seen Mr. Brownlee playing with Mrs. Forsythe, by taking her handkerchief out of her pocket, but no more ; he also took a handkerchief out of witness' pocket at the same time, a liberty she did not care about ; the prosecution rose through her husband wanting payment of £13 Forsythe owed him for paying for his (Forsythe's) passage to this colony from England; instead of paying the £13, Forsythe turned insolvent,- and caused the present proceedings to be taken.

Richard Nelson, a son of the former witness, said he never heard her at any time make the remarks referred to concerning Mr. Brownlee.

Robert Nelson, another son, deposed that Forsythe while drunk, insulted him on the road on Saturday night, 7th May, and that he (witness) demanded an explanation from him about the matter on Monday ; he called witness' mother a w—- , and that was why witness wanted an explanation from him ; instead of explaining, Forsythe at once asked him if he wanted to fight, and commenced at him, and they both then fell to at it; not a word was said all through about Mr. Brownlee

Mary Forsythe said she was Ralph Forsythe's wife, and that Mrs. Nelson had said to her in private several times that she was in the habit of w——g and drinking with Brownlee.

His Honor said that it was most painful for him to have to decide in a case where the evidence was so conflicting. He would regret very much being wrong in his opinion, but he deemed it his duty to give a decision in the matter, and as he was inclined to believe the statements of Forsythe and his wife rather than those of the other side, he gave plaintiff a verdict for £20 damages and costs, including that of four witnesses.

Mr. Woodward requested that his Honor should permit the case to be re-heard before a jury. His Honor said he could not see the way clear to do so, as that course was not taken in the first instance, as might have been. He should regret very much being wrong in his decision ; but he could not see anything to cause him to change it.

In the event, however, of certain conditions being complied with by defendants, in regard to the payment of the damages and taxed costs, he would grant an application for a new trial, should such be made. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 28 June 1881 p 2

Disgraceful Disclosures

At the Wollongong Police Court yesterday (before Mr. G. Maunsell, P M.) Clarinda Shannon was charged with having assaulted Kate Lahiff on the 18th inst.

Mr Russel for complainant Defendant pleaded guilty.

Mr. Russell said he desired his Worship to hear the facts of the case before dealing with it. He strongly objected to the attempt made by defendant to suppress the facts by her plea of guilty.

Complainant had been subjected to systematic cruelty by defendant for a considerable time, which had culminated in the assault compained of.

His Worship decided to hear evidence before dealing with the case.

Complainant deposed that she was the wife of Michael Lahiff, having been married to him on the 12th April, 1887, at Tumut ; she was his second wife ; she lived on good terms with her husband until March, 1895, when defendant, who was a niece of her husband's deceased wife, came to her house; shortly after defendant's arrival she noticed improprieties between her and her husband, which she enumerated ; after defendant had been at her house a short time her relations with her husband were not as happy as they were before her arrival ; on one occasion, in May, 1895, when she was going into her bedroom, where her husband and defendant were, her husband said if she went in she would not go out alive ; she had not occupied her bedroom since then ; defendant and her husband had occupied her bedroom continually since then, excepting some time when defendant was in Sydney ; she had been subjected to repeated acts of cruelty by defendant and also by her husband ; they had both frequently thrown water over her and also over her bed ; she had not received sufficient food for a long time, as defendant kept it locked up against her ; defendant had also put filth upon her bed clothes ; defendant also used threatening language to her ; she. said she would do away with her if she could, and would have the place to herself when she got rid of her ; defendant had struck her on previous occasions, and on one occasion threw her down and cut her head ; her husband saw defendant strike her one Sunday, and never attempted to protect her ; her husband struck her upon one occasion, dislocating her jaw, and the doctor had to be called in ; defendant and her husband had often thrown cow dung through the window at her defendant went to Sydney in September, 1895, and whilst she was away she received the letter produced in her hand writing addressed to her husband, which she opened ; defendant was sick whilst she was in Sydney and also for some time after she returned ; on the 18th of this month she took some meat out of the safe, when defendant said she would let the flies get at it and spoil it ; she told her she would not and threw a small bag at her, when she struck her on the head ; since she had issued the summons, defendant wanted to settle the case, saying that if she was brought before the Court she would plead guilty, and that her husband would pay whatever fine was inflicted ; she received no money from her husband, and had no means whatever ; she was afraid defendant would do her some injury.

Michael Lahiff, examined by Mr. Russell, deposed that complainant was his wife, and that they had lived together as man and wife for some years ; shortly after defendant came to his house his wife made complaints to him, which were unfounded ; he declined to answer the question as so whether or not he was cohabiting with defendant; his wife ceased to occupy his bedroom shortly after the arrival of defendant ; but he declined to say whether or not the latter took her place ; defendant went to Sydney in September, 1895, to go to service ; he did not know whether or not it was for any other purpose ; he received letters from defendant whilst she was in Sydney, but did not show them to his wife ; did not remember the contents of the letters ; sent her some money from her father whilst she was in Sydney, but sent none of his own ; had seen lots of rows between defendant and his wife, and had repeatedly had rows with his wife himself ; slapped his wife on the jaw on one occasion, and she ' yelled ' to such an extent that she dislocated it, and the doctor had to reduce the dislocation ; had thrown water over his wife and upon her bed many times, and was present when defendant did so also ; had heard defendant making threats in jesting manner to his wife; did not see any reason why he should remove defendant from his house; defendant and himself had thrown cow dung at his wife frequently ; he declined to resume his conjugal relations with his wife, and that was the cause of the trouble ; he told her that morning that when she came back at night she would find her things outside.

At the request of Mr. Russell, the Bench directed the Clerk of Petty Sessions to read the letter written to last witness by defendant, and intercepted by complainant, whilst she was in Sydney.

The letter was couched in very endearing terms and showed that intimate relations existed between the parties.

Mr. Russell addressed the Bench, contending that the treatment to which complainant had been subjected was such as would justify the Bench in committing defendant for trial.

Defendant was fined £5, with £2 2s professional costs, and 8s 4d costs of court; in default, four months in gaol.

She was also ordered to enter into sureties to keep the peace for six months, herself in £10, and two others in £20 each; in default, one month in gaol. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 27 October 1896 p 2

Living at Avondale in 1903 Electoral Roll- Domestic duties

On Tuesday, Mr. J. Neville, an old and much respected resident of Avondale, died rather suddenly. Mr. Neville leaves a widow and family of seven daughters ; the sad news reached one member of the family as she was seeing two of the children of Mr. Thomas' in the train to attend the funeral of their mother.

A link with the pioneering days of the Illawarra district was severed when Mrs. Margaret Neville passed away at the ripe old age of 97 years on June 16th, at her residence, New Dapto Rd., Wollongong. Her husband, the late Mr. James Neville, predeceased her 30 years ago.

The late Mrs. Neville came to Australia in 1844 with her parents when she was one year old, in the sailing ship, 'The United Kingdom,' the voyage occupying six months. Her birth place was Tyrone, Ireland, her husband coming from the same locality.

Her parents settled on the Marshall Mount Estate, in the Illawarra district, on arrival in Australia, and after-wards went to Avondale, where they carried on farming. The deceased remained there until ten years ago, when she took up residence at New Dapto road. She was the youngest of nine children, her only surviving brother passing away recently at the age of 93 years. She had been an ardent adherent of Methodism all her life, being chiefly associated with the Wollongong Circuit. The interment took place in the Wollongong cemetery,.

She is survived by a family of five daughters, vis Misses Ethel, Daisy and Ruth Neville and Mrs. McLeod (Lilly), Harden, and Mrs. Gardiner (Leila), West Australia. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 28 June 1940 p 7

Mrs Nevin. — We learn that Mrs Nevin, late teacher of the Roman Catholic School West Dapto, had been appointed to the Paddington Public School. This lady, as many of our readers are aware, conducted the West Dapto R.C. School during the last seven years under the Council of Education, the cause of her leaving the same being the conversion of the school into a convent institution by. Dr. Vaughan on the passing of the Public Instruction Act. Mrs. Nevin being highly respected, and, as we understand an excellent teacher, her friends in this district will be pleased to learn that she is now afforded a much better opportunity for the exercise of her talents than she had at West Dapto.

On Saturday afternoon Mrs. Nevin, of the Public School, Kogarah (formerly of the late Dapto R. C. School), was being driven by her son in a buggy (uninjured but was carrying a lot of money which was misplaced for a while) Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Thursday 12 August 1886 Page 3

A buggy accident attended with very serious consequences happened yesterday evening at about 6 o'clock in George-street, between Goulburn and Liverpool streets. Mrs. Mary Nevin, of Kogarah, was being driven by her son along the former street, when the horse bolted rapidly down the hill, until colliding with a lamp post it broke loose and left the vehicle smashed and turned over near the pavement. Mrs. Nevin was thrown out with such violence that she became unconscious, but her sou escaped without any injury beyond a severe shaking. The former was conveyed to the Sydney Hospital by Constable Rue, and at once admitted by Dr. Fisher. She was unconscious, and up to a late hour last evening remained in the same state.

It was in the, days when Mrs Nevil ruled as headmistress 40 years ago that the pupils learned their lessons amid the interesting farmyard atmosphere. The school was one long room then with an ivy-covered cottage for the teacher adjoining, Mrs. Nevin, a lady of ample proportions, whose weight is given as 18 stone, kept two cows, a number of pigs, a pony, and scores of fowls. Her son and daughter assisted her as pupil teachers, and … The Propeller (Hurstville, NSW : 1911 - 1954) Friday 30 May 1924 Page 2

William John Newing, a wheelwright, residing at Berry, applied to have his marriage with Priscilla Emmaline Newing (formerly Winley) dissolved on the ground of adultery with a laborer and timber-splitter named James W. Wilson, who was joined as .co-respondent.     There was no appearance on behalf of the respondent or co-respondent. The parties were married in the Wesleyan Church at   Broughton Vale, near Nowra, on August 15, 1892, there being as issue six children, three of whom were still living. On August 19, last year, the respondent left Kiama, where they then resided, on a month's visit to petitioner's brother. The petitioner accompanied her to the railway station, and they parted in the most affectionate manner. The respondent had not been well, and it was thought the change would do her good. Two days after she left Kiama the petitioner received a letter from his wife which caused him to go to Sydney. He at once went to his brother's place, but found that his wife had not been there. Subsequently he discovered that the co-respondent had travelled with the respondent to Sydney, joining the train at Albion Park. Petitioner immediately commenced a search for his wife, but it was not until after he had instituted divorce proceedings that he found she was at Harden, whither he went to serve the petition upon her. She begged forgiveness and prevailed upon him to take her back. He did so on condition that she would have nothing more to do with the co-respondent. This she promised to do, and he withdrew the petition and lived with her until January last, when she left him, saying she would not live any longer with him. He endeavoured to induce her to stay, but she refused to do so and went away. Subsequently he discovered that she was living with the co- respondent in a tent near Berry. His Honor granted a rule nisi, returnable in three months. Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931) Friday 1 June 1900 p 6

Newman Ann


(To the Editor of the 'Illawarra Mercury.')

Sir — In justice to Mrs Johnson and myself, I request your insertion in your next issue of the following 'facts' connected with the above case. Ann Newman, a girl of 17, came to me as cook, having accepted an engagement in that capacity, knowing she was not capable of filling the situation, having been so informed by a party in Sydney. On arrival at my house she at once admitted this, when Mrs Johnson, as an act of kindness, offered to try her as housemaid for a week, at 8s per week wages, her previous agreement as cook to be cancelled. This offer she at once accepted; her former agreement she gave to me, and was not, as she swore, taken from her by Mrs Johnson. I took it to Sydney to obtain an explanation from Mr Poole as to why he had engaged a person in every way utterly unqualified for the situation. On the day of my leaving home, a second girl was sent down also as cook by Mr Poole, without my desire, and in direct opposition to previous instructions. On the morning of her arrival, Ann Newman took herself off, without asking for any wages, or being desired to go by Mrs Johnson, to whom she had previously said, ' that if she considered she had served long enough to repay Mrs Johnson her expenses, she should have.' These facts I was prepared to prove by witnesses in open Court, and wished to explain to the Bench, but I was not permitted to do so. The Bench, without asking if I had any witnesses to examine or defence to make, proceeded to consider their verdict. Having waited some minutes, 1 ventured to intimate to, their Worships that I had witnesses to call, and before so doing, essayed to make a few observations in reply to the remarks of Mr Owen conveying undeserved censure upon Mrs Johnson, who, as the law at present stands, is not allowed to make any statement either in justification or contradiction, but, otherwise, could have disproven every assertion of the girl. On my observing that 1 regretted Mr Owen had animadverted so severely upon the conduct of Mrs Johnson, I was desired in a peremptory tone to call my witness, and upon replying that I thought I was at liberty to address the Court before so doing, and that then was the proper time, namely, before calling my witnesses, I was desired by the Chairman (Mr Jenkins) to be silent, as neither he, nor their worships, sat there to argue the case with me.' Mr Owen rising at the same time, and in a warm tone characterizing my manner of treating him as resembling that of a bull-dog. Then, as you observe, ' a scene followed,' &. And, sir, is it to be wondered at, that I became excited or that I resented with indignation such treatment, and that, smarting under a sense of unwarrantable insult and injustice, I replied, 'I thought I was in a Court of Justice, , but, us I was not allowed to speak, I had no alternative than respectfully to how to their Worships and leave the Court,' which I did immediately, thoroughly convinced that I had done only as became a man strong in his innocence, but subject to gross wrong. I am at all times ready to render honor where honor is due; but, I hope, I shall ever be prepared to resent and resist insult or injustice from whatever quarter it may come. For 20 years and upwards, I have been a housekeeper and employer of labor, and have never, until I came to Wollongong, been summoned to Court by a servant, nor do I remember ever (with one exception for robbery) prosecuting one. I are, sir, yours obediently, EDW. JOHNSON. Wollongong, 12th March, 1858.

Newman v. Newman and Clarke.

This case, which was commenced on Monday, was continued. The petitioner, Nicholas Newman, sought a dissolution of his marriage, with his wife, Mary Jane Newman, on the grounds of her adultery with the co-respondent. William Allison Clarke. There were counter charges of cruelty, neglect, and adultery against the petitioner.

His Honor stated, in reference to the application made by Mr. Heydon on the previous night, on behalf of the respondent, for a further order on the petitioner for £10 to pay the costs of the respondent's defence, that he declined to make any order in the matter.

The respondent, Mary Jane Newman, was further examined, and denied that there had been any improper intimacy between herself and Clarke.

A number of witnesses were called in support of the respondent's case, which was not concluded when the court rose. The Australian Star (Sydney, NSW : 1887 - 1909) Friday 17 August 1888 p 6

The Newman Divorce Case.

The suit brought by Nicholas Newman against his wife and William A. Clark (co-respondent), was continued in the Sydney Court on Monday.

William Alison Clark was again placed in the box and gave further testimony with a view of showing the various times at which Newman might have been in Bathurst. He denied that he had been in the habit of being in a bedroom with Mrs. Newman.

Witness had received information to the effect that the girl Quigley had borne a child to Newman, and in his own defence he endeavoured to hunt up some evidence with regard to the affiliation case. He did so not in the interest of the girl, but in his own.

He had had nothing to do with the engagement of Detective Riley, and had never given him any money. He knew a Mrs. Balfour. Called on her on November 3— not about Quigley, but about his own case with Newman, He did not speak to her about the affiliation case, and offered her no money for any purpose. There had been no messages between himself and Quigley. Witness had belonged to the Engine Drivers' Association, but sent in his resignation because some of them wanted to ask him questions he thought they had no right to put to him. He did not bring Mrs. Newman to a ball; but they were at the ball together. They might have had a dance or two together; but she was a bad dancer. (Laughter). They might have travelled on that occasion in the same railway carriage

He did not know whether Quigley was married or not. He only knew her as a barmaid, but he did not frequent public-houses, and did not know much about her, He was certain that he gave no one any money on account of the affiliation case. It was Newman who moved the resolution by which the Engine Drivers' Association called on witness for an explanation. The co-respondent was held in the highest estimation by the association, as proved by their having presented him with a gold watch.

A number of documents were then put in, they included a letter which had been addressed to Newman and opened by his wife, purporting to show that Mrs, Clark was in communication with Newman. This letter was signed ' B.,' and complained that Newman was forgetting his old friend.

It also invited him to call, but it was clearly denied by Mrs. Clark that she had ever written or sent the letter.

This closed the case for the co-respondent, after which the petitioner was re-called. He flatly denied that he and his wife had lived unhappily, and swore that he had never struck a woman in his life. He had never neglected his wife, and had never struck her. He once threw at his wife some water out of a bucket; but he did not throw the bucket with the water. He had bad nothing whatever to do with the girl Quigley, and was innocent of the charge brought against him. He never went to the hospital to see Quigley, but he went to see a man who was injured, and who afterwards died. He denied having over gone to Quigley's bedroom; but he saw her in a sitting-room, where he delivered a letter to her. It was false to say that witness was the mover of a resolution calling on Clark for an explanation, He took no action in the matter whatever.

Mrs. Clark re-called, denied having heard Mrs. Newman speak of her husband as a brute ; and said she never saw Newman throw a bucket at his wife.

She always looked upon Newman as a very good, kind father.

Philomena Campbell, wife of an engine-driver, lived in the next house to the Newman’s; She was very intimate with them, and looked upon the petitioner as the best of husbands and the best of fathers.

Mr. Heydon addressed the jury at considerable length for the respondent, accusing Mrs. Clark of being a jealous little spy, who Had caused all the trouble between the patties, and had broken up Mrs. Newman's home causing her to sell every stick of her furniture to defend her character and her rights.

Counsel commented strongly on the fact that the petitioner, Newman, had allowed his wife to defend herself again such accusations as had been brought against her. Did the jury, he asked, believe that the conduct of such a case would not cost the petitioner more than that sum ; and if it did, why should all, or nearly all, the money be on the one side whilst so little was allowed for the other ? He looked upon it as impossible that a woman who had behaved in so irreproachable a manner as wife and mother during so many years, could have been suddenly betrayed into such a series of crimes as had been charged by that suspicious little Mrs. Clarke. He looked on the case as an utterly flimsy one, and then began to consider the petitioner's reasons for endeavouring to get rid of his wife. He looked at them as clearly proved by her husband's words to the effect that he only wished to God he had something against her in order that he might put another woman in her place. He praised Mrs. Newman for her courage, her honesty, and especially for her maternal affection, showing that she had been equal to any sacrifice rather than have her children taken away from her. (Here Mrs. Newman was sensibly affected, and appeared to cry bitterly in court.)

Counsel next came to the petitioner's alleged infidelity to his wife in the case of the girl Quigley, stating that she had sworn to having had a child by Newman, and had obtained an affiliation order against him, though it was subsequently reversed on appeal ; and he was only sorry that the girl had not been produced. He then read a telegram from Newman to Quigley, informing her that he would be at the Bathurst station at 11.30 p m. From the wording of the message, counsel contended that the man who sent it must have been on good terms with, and must have had a perfect understanding with the woman to whom he sent it.

Mr. Gibson addressed the jury on behalf of the co-respondent, Clark, saying that his client's case was so mixed up with that of Mrs, Newman, that he had very little to add to what had fallen from Mr. Heydon,

He (Mr. Gibson) then submitted that the verdict could not be other than one for the respondent and co-respondent.

Mr. Balaton replied at great length on behalf of the petitioner, traversing all that had been said by Messrs. Heydon and Gibson. He went back over all the charges made against the respondent and the co respondent, and endeavoured to press them home. He accounted for Newman's having delayed so long by urging that his client was naturally ashamed of his own suspicions of his wife, fearing that by speaking out he might bring about the very thing he dreaded most. He forcibly referred to Clark as a scoundrel who had kept on friendly terms with Newman for the purpose of accomplishing his purposes. He did not think that Clark's actions bad proved him to be one imbued with ' a high sense of moral integrity.' Counsel ridiculed the stories of the alleged cruelties, urging that if a man intentionally struck his wife with a bucket he would be the very last to tell a stranger that he had done so; but that if he had struck her accidentally (through his hands slipping in consequence of the soap and water not having been wiped off) it would be a very different thing. He (Mr. Ralston) wanted to get out full particulars about the girl Quigley, but he had been stopped by the other side. He urged that the hospital nurse who swore that Newman had visited Quigley two or three times a week must have been mistaken, as Newman could not have gone to the hospital unless on a Sunday,

It was ' all my eye' to suppose that Mrs. Newman had not been provided with sufficient … The Australian Star (Sydney, NSW : 1887 - 1909) Friday 17 August 1888 p 6

With suddenness and sadness, Mrs. Alice Newton passed peacefully away, at her home in Hopetoun Street, Bulli, last Sunday evening. While attending a service in the Baptist Church at Woonona that evening at about ;7.30 o'clock, Mrs. Newton informed her husband that she felt ill, and both returned to their home. A doctor's advice was obtained; and Mrs. Newton was placed, in bed, but she was beyond human aid, and, in the presence of her husband and three sons (Messrs. Arthur, Harold, and Jack, she breathed her last at about 9.20 p.m. Death was due to heart failure, with which she had for years been a patient sufferer, so the end was not altogether unexpected, but the suddenness nevertheless proved a; severe blow to the husband and family.

The impressive funeral cortege, attended by a large .circle of sympathisers, left the home last Tuesday at 3 p.m., proceeding first to the Baptist Church at Woonona and afterwards to the Baptist section of Bulli cemetery. Rev. J. Pickup (Mosman, and an old friend of the family) conducting the service in the church and also at the graveside, being assisted by Rev. J. T. Wynn (Congregational Minister at Campsie, and brother of deceased). The late Mrs. Newton was 60 years of age and the younger daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Wynn, both, of whom have died in this district, and former is well remembered as under manager at Mt. Pleasant Colliery. She was born in Sedgley, county of Stafford, England, and came to Australia with her parents when a girl about six years of age, and they at once settled in this district. Her death occurred on the 38th anniversary of her marriage to Mr. John Newton, which ceremony was performed at Woonona by Rev. Stephen Kessell. Having lived in the district practically all her life, she was known to a large circle of friends. Great interest was centred by her in the affairs of the Baptist Church at Woonona, of which she had been a Deaconess, and was also a member of the Women's Work-basket Association. Another worthy organisation to which she was attached was the Woonona branch of the Happiness Club. In all those movements she proved herself to be an earnest and conscientious worker, everready to do something from which others would benefit. Her memory will long be treasured by all who knew her. By her death, Mr. Newton has suffered an irreparable loss, and much sympathy is being extended to him, and also to the family of four sons and two daughters— Harold (Dubbo), Jack (Concord North), Edward (Lilyfield), Arthur (Leichhardt), Eileen (Mrs. Holmes, Leichhardt), Annie (Sydney).

Mrs. Nicholls was formerly Miss Harriet Pope, and was born in Bulli in 1864. In her early days she knew all the hardships and rigours of travelling in the latter half of last century. At that time, the railway terminated at Waterfall, and persons wishing to go further had either to travel beyond Waterfall by horse-drawn coach or sail in the small coastal vessels of that day.

Mr. Nicholls is a native of Norton Cains, Staffordshire, England. He was born in- 1859 and came to Australia as a young man. A miner by occupation, he worked in the South Coast coal mines for over 50 years, the last ten years of which he was an inspector at Old Bulli mine.

They have five children, all living, and nine grandchildren. Both are ardent church workers, Mr. Nicholls being a Methodist local preacher for 50 years. they, are well liked and respected in the community and their house and garden reflect the care and industry bestowed upon them by this aged couple.

Now, after having been married for 50 years, they are hale and strong, and an example to those setting out in marriage, being always together. Darby and Joan grown old.

Mrs. Harriet Nicholls died at the residence of her sister, Mrs. Park, In Railway- Street, Corrimal, yesterday. Mrs. Nicholls was a member of the Pope family, a well- known pioneer, family of Woonona. Illawarra Daily Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1950 - 1954) Wednesday 1 February 1950 p 2

The sad news of the death in Sydney on Saturday of Mrs. Agnes Nicholson, wife of Mr Charles Nicholson, of West Wyalong, was received here yesterday by her son-in-law, Mr.L. A. Pettit. The deceased lady, who was 54 years of age, has been ailing for the past three weeks, and on Wednesday last it was decided to send her to Sydney, for which place she left, accompanied by her sister-in-law Miss Nicholson. On Friday evening', Mr. Nicholson received an urgent summons to proceed to Sydney, he and his son, Jack leaving by Saturday's train. The cause of death was a paralytic stroke and haemorrhage of the brain.

The late Mrs. Nicholson came here with her husband and family shortly after the outbreak of the field, and has resided here ever since. For the past 10 or 12 years, she has been engaged in obstetric nursing, and for a time conducted a private hospital at 'Wyalong'. She was a good worker for patrotic causes during the war, two of her sons (Lieut. C. R. Nicholson, M.C. and Private Dave Nicholson) having gone on active service She was very highly esteemed by a large circle of friends.

She leaves a husband, three sons and two daughters to mourn their sad loss, viz., Messrs Dave, Jack and George Nicholson, and Mrs. McLean, of Leeton, and Mrs. L. A Pettit, of West Wyalong

A lady well-known and very popular in Kiama passed away on Monday last at Northbridge in the person of Mrs. Amy Nicholson, wife of Mr. Alex Nicholson; former manager of the E. S. and. A. Bank at Gerringong and Kiama. She was a member of a very old and esteemed district family, being the daughter of the late Mr, and Mrs. Richard .Hall, of Gerringong. During the manly years she resided in this district she was all indefatigable worker for all charitable causes, such as the. Kiama Hospital, and during the Great' War no one did more than the late Mrs; Nicholson to assist the Red Cross and similar institutions. .Her husband retired from the banking service about 17 years ago and they went to reside at Northbridge, but have been frequent visitors to Kiama renewing old friendships, and many will be sorry to hear of the passing of a lady of such a gracious and charming personality. Mrs. Nicholson is survived by her husband and, one daughter, Muriel (Mrs. M. H. Ross) to whom sincere sympathy is extended in their bereavement.

A respected resident of Bulli, Mrs. Nicol, passed away at her home in Hopetoun Street, Bulli, early yesterday morning, aged 64 years. The funeral will take place at 4 p.m. to-day (Fri day). There is much sympathy for the two sons — Messrs. Ernest and Andrew Nicol. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 26 August 1927 p 10


In recording the demise of Mrs. Mary Nicol, Hopetoun Street, Bulli, we do so with much regret, knowing — as we do— that the district has lost a splendid type of woman. The death took place at her home on Thursday, 25th Aug. resulting from pneumonia. Confined to bed for a week, and with medical skill and a nurse also in attendance throughout, the attack was too severe to withstand. The funeral left the home on Fri- day afternoon, at 4 o'clock, being very impressive indeed. In front of the hearse laden with beautiful wreaths, marched male friends of the two sons. Deceased was placed to rest at the side of her late husband — Andrew Nicol,   who died in April, 1911, when 54 years of age — in the Presbyterian section of Bulli cemetery, Rev. A. Wood conducting the funeral service. The sadness of the two sons as they watched the body of their late mother being lowered into the last resting place can be imagined, and they were supported by Mr. R. Evans and Mr. W. Evans, father-in-law and brother-in-law of the eldest son. The pall-bearers were Messrs. C. Jones, D. Scott, J. Cochrane, H. Hobbs, F. Horton, E. Taylor — first three representing South Bulli Colliery staff and last named three of Protestant Alliance Lodge, the young son being identified with both, having proved a good secretary of the Alliance. The late Mrs. Nicol, 64 years of age, was like her husband, a native of Scotland, and they came to Australia as a young couple. It was from Newcastle they moved to Bulli over 20 years ago, bringing with them a family of three sons. The husband died, as mentioned previously, and the second son — Donald — gave his life when a soldier at Belgium in October, 1917, being then only 20 years of age. The remaining two sons — Archibald and Andrew— are well known and highly respected throughout the district, and sympathy is being extended to them from all quarters. Deceased had endeared herself to all who knew her, due to her kindly nature and a desire at all times to render assistance or a consoling word to any in trouble, and many will miss this lady- like person. Very notable was her association for about 20 years with the Presbyterian Ladies' Guild at Woonona and the members have expressed their sorrow at the loss of one whom they had always looked upon as one of the best of their number.

Mrs. Catherine C. Nicolle, who died in Sydney this week aged 80 years, was well known in the Wollongong district for very many years. She was born in Parramatta, being a daughter of the late Professor Watt. As a bride she went to live at “Esperanza,” the home of her husband, the late Mr. E. H. S. Nicolle, who pre-deceased his wife about fourteen years ago. “Esperanza” was situated on a rise overlooking Lake Illawarra, and in the vicinity of the present township of Primbee. Mrs. Nicolle became noted for her gentleness, kindliness and hospitality, and these characteristics always won the affection and esteem of all who came in contact with her. In past years she had resided in Sydney, and latterly had suffered from indifferent health. The remains were cremated at the North Sydney Crematorium, and the Rev. E. Walker officiated at the service. Members of the family who have lost a devoted mother are: Dorothy (Mrs. Nute, Hamilton), Erica (Mrs. Kerie, Taree), Gwen (Mrs. R. Ridley, East Melbourne), Phyllis (Sydney), Stanley and Frank (Newcastle). Miss Williamson, of Wollongong, is a niece. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 26 November 1943 p 5

Sad Death.

The death of Mr. Gustavus Nilsson occurred very suddenly on Sunday afternoon under very sad circumstances.

Deceased had resided in Wollongong for many years, and was very popular with all sections of the community. He was a painter by trade, and 'was recognised as being a first-class tradesman. Deceased leaves behind a widow, for whom the deepest sympathy is felt.

An inquest was held yesterday at noon by the coroner (Mr. W. H. Rees) concerning the circumstances surrounding the death of deceased.

Sarah Nilsson, wife of deceased, deposed that deceased was 49 years of age, and a native of Sweden. Had been married to him for 22 years. Deceased was addicted to drink, and had been drinking heavily from Monday until Thursday, when he had been wandering into the bush and returning for tea. On Friday he got up, very early, and after feeding the horse went off for the day. He returned between four and five o'clock, and said he had come home to die. He vomited very much, and was ill all night…. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 17 November 1908 p 2

During Thursday night there passed away at Goonellabah in the person of Mrs. Mary Noble, a colonist of sixty years standing. Whilst able to get about to the last, Mrs Noble for the past few years had been in frail health and confined to her residence, receiving unremitting attention and care from her daughter, Miss Amanda Noble. Going to usual at 9 p.m. on Thursday, the invalid took a bad turn, unexpectedly about midnight and passed away to her rest before the medical aid summoned could arrive. Born in County Tyrone, Ireland, in 1836, a year before the accession of the late Queen Victoria, deceased came out with her parents, Mr and Mrs Graham and family to Australia in 1857, landing very shortly after the wreck of the Dunbar at The Gap, Sydney Heads. In fact these travellers to a new world had a most providential escape in connection with that ill fated vessel. They would have sailed in her, but for their departure being postponed through a mistake in applying from lreland for passages to South Wales instead of New South Wales. On landing at Sydney they settled at Kiama, where Mrs. Noble, who married in 1866, lived for 30 years. Then the Nobles, like many other settlers of those parts, heard the insistent call of the Richmond River ringing through the South Coast districts and they answered it, settling upon what proved to be, when cleared, a fine property at Fernleigh, near Tintenbar. Here, sustaining all the privations and troubles of pioneers in the heart of the Big Scrub, they remained until the strenuous part of their lives was o'er, and a well-earned rest in the twilight of their days had been won.

From Fernleigh the home was removed to Goonellabah, where they lived in retirement, Mr. Noble predeceasing his wife four and a half years ago. Of the three daughters and five sons born to the deceased, one daughter and four sons survive her as follows:- Amanda (Goonellabah), John William (Goonellabah), Robert (Brisbane), James (Bangalow), and Gerard (Toowoomba). She also leaves a number of grandchildren.

Her brother James, the sole surviving member of the Graham family, resides at Ridgewood, Clunes. For sixty-five years of late, Mrs Noble was a-constant supporter of Methodism, attaching herself to that connexion from the closing period of her childhood. In a career which included two pioneering experiences, naturally a little more than the average amount of hardship fell to her lot. But the exemplary life she led enabled her to sustain these with fortitude and overcome them and her even temperament and kindly disposition always secured her a wide circle of friends.

After the ceremony, a number of the children received the bride and bridegroom at the entrance to the church with showers of rose leaves and confetti. The bride was dressed in white silk, beautifully tucked and shirred, and yoke of silk-worked chiffon ; from the elbow hung deep frills of accordion-pleated chiffon, edged with satin bebe ribbon ; also the usual wreath and veil. She wore a gold watch and diamond and sapphire ring and carried a shower bouquet, gifts of the bridegroom .

JOHN COOK sworn.

I live at Twickenham , I am a brewer , the prisoner was my servant , she was with me only three days.

Q. Had you a character with her? - No, there we were deficient.

Q. When was it this happened? - On the 26th of March last we did not hear her so soon in the morning as usual, either I or my wife, and we waited some time and heard nothing of her, and after some short interval of about twenty minutes, her mistress went into her room hearing no answer to the bell, and found she was gone, and her box and a great deal of property missing. On Sunday week I went down to King's Langley, in Hertfordshire, in consequence of a letter having been seen in her box, dated from that piece. I found that she had been down there in a post chaise on the Saturday, subsequent to the robbery, and I traced her back to Watford, she there took another post chaise and came to the Green Man at Islington; but I should tell your lordship first, that I saw the boy at Watford that drove her, and he told me that there was part of the property left at the Green Man at Islington, which I have got here and can swear to some part of it.

Q. Was the prisoner at the Green Man when you found the property? - No, she had been gone some days; the property was brought forward by the landlord and landlady of the house, the landlord's name, I believe, is James Thomas.


I am the wife of the last witness.

Q. On the 26th of March I understand this woman quitted your service, did you then miss your property? - Yes.

Q. Was the property that you missed from any one particular place, or from different rooms in your house? - From different places.


The prisoner took a place at our coach office for Kingston, from Kingston to London, she booked the place on the 26th of March in the evening, outside, she came up by the coach on the 27th of March, she came to the Angel, the back of St. Clement's.

Q. Had she the bundle with her then? - I did not see the large bundle, that she did not carry, but she had a small bundle then in a small silk handkerchief; and she went back with me to Stones End to know if the bundle was come by the other coach. She went with me on the box to the Stones End, to the Horse Shoe, where she found it was come to the Cross Keys, in Gracechurch-street; but I bought a watch of her in the day time. left her at the Horse Shoe.

Q. Where did you buy that watch? - Between the hours of one and two on the 27th.

Q. Where was it you bought it? - At the Crooked Billet, the corner of Wych-street, I went with her from the Angel Inn to there, it was only across the way.

Q. How did it happen, had you had any talk about that watch? - She had something of a twist about her finger, and I asked her about it, and she said she was at play the night before, and had broke her ring, and she pulled her housewife out of her pocket to shew me a ring, and she could not find it; but she found a mourning ring, which she said was her grandmother's; she then opened her bundle and took out a tea caddy, she then took out two watches, one was a plain gold one, and the other was a green studded case watch. I asked her if she would sell the plain gold watch? she said, I should have it if I chose; I asked her what I should give her for it? I told her I did not know the value of such a thing, but I would give her what she pleased for it; she said it was a very old watch, much battered and bruised, and it was her grandfather's; but if I had it cleaned it would go well, and I should have it for my own price. I said if she would I would give her three guineas for it; she said I should have it. and I bought it of her.

Q. Did you know it was gold then? - I did not. I took it to the Angel Inn, and shewed it to one of our clerks, and he said it was not worth more than fifteen shillings, but afterwards it was shewn to a watch maker, and he said the outside case was worth two guineas; we went then to Stones End, in the Borough.


The prisoner came to my house and was there the biggest part of the week; I keep the Green Man, at Paddington. Mr. Cooke made a mistake in saying I slington. She came to me the latter end of March, the day I cannot say, it was on a Saturday, and she came away the Saturday following; she said she had been in search of her brother, and her money ran short, and she wished to leave a few things that she had got, and desired to have a guinea and a half on them, and she would send for the things in a day or two.

Q. Had she any bundles with her at that time? - Yes, I cannot say to more than one, and that I can hardly say, only I see the porter have it on his back when she went out of the house, she left a piece of muslin, a blue sattin cloak, with black lace, and a check apron she gave my servant, and a mourning ring.

Q. Was the muslin not made up, or was it in a gown? - Not made up.


I was sent for last Thursday, about seven o'clock in the afternoon, to take the prisoner up, I went to the Horse Shoe, at Stones End.

Q. Had she any thing with her at that time? - Yes, I took these things from her back, and two rings from her finger; here is a black silk cloak, a pair of leather gloves, and a half shawl, and some other things, a muslin half shawl, here are three in all found, and only one owned.

Mrs. Cooke. These are my things, my cloak, I made it myself, I know the muslin also

Mills. This is the watch I bought of the prisoner, I know it by the number,(811.)

Q. How long had you had it in your custod? - From Thursday to Saturday night about eight o'clock, when I went and left it at Union Hall, with the magistrate.

Wale. I bring it here.

Mrs. Cooke. This is my husband's watch? - I know it to be his.

Mr. Cooke. This is my watch, I know it very well, I had it about eight years, I prosecuted two guards about the same watch, robbing me on the highway. I broke the pendant the night before the robbery, in consequence I did not take it up stairs that night as I used to do, but I left it on the chimney-piece. It cost me nine guineas, I bought it as second hand; I suppose it is worth now six or seven guineas, the cloak cost about four pounds, the muslin cost three shillings and six-pence a yard, the rings are worth three pounds.

Prisoner. I have got nothing to say.

The wife; cross petitioned for a decree for restitution of conjugal rights. His Honor dismissed both petitions. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 24 October 1924 p 16

Suspicious Septuagenarian
Separated from Spouse South Coast Mining Family Divides Over Boarder's Imaginary Misconduct —
Martin Northey Sues for Divorce from Elderly Partner and Joins Ernest Talbot as Co-respondent

DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS THAT CRASHED WHEN a man has worked hard until he has reached the age of seventy-six, and then troubles the Divorce Court in frantic desire to get rid of his wife, he incidentally bears out the declaration of Dr. J. S. Haldane, of London, that the life of a collier is an exceptionally healthy one. EITHER that, or he is actuated by revenge.

MARTIN NORTHEY, who at the age of fifty married Winifred Passmore, twenty years younger, at Sydney, on 28th February, 1899, and reared a family of four, came to Mr. Justice Owen's Court seeking his legal liberty, on an allegation that she had been unfaithful with a much younger miner, named Ernest Talbot, whilst he boarded at their home at Bellambi, and afterwards.

Mrs. Northey, a stout, matronly woman of fifty-five, spectacled and looking good for many a day's hard work yet, denied the misconduct, and asked for a decree of conjugal rights.

A big bar was engaged on the case, Mr. Hardwick and Mr. Hungerford (Barker and Jones) acted for petitioner, Mr. Toose and Mr. Sayegh (S. G. Summers) for respondent, and Mr. Clancy for the co-respondent.

Northey, a lightweight of the bilious temperament, evidently shrunken with age, but withal active and determined, evidenced by his demeanour that he had lost all affection for his wife. He was Cousin Jack, she a Welsh girl from Swansea, the tinplate metropolis, and they were married by the Rev. George Hay, of the Independent Presbyterian Kirk, Pitt street— Northey being a childless widow beforehand.

His matrimonial history, given almost fiercely, showed that his wife hadn't married to escape work, for they kept a boarding-house, and at times had as many as twenty boarders, but sometimes as few as five.

Among the boarders was Edward Talbot, familiarly called Ted, a wiry-built bachelor young enough to be even Mrs. Northey's son, but now inclined to baldness, and the declining husband reckoned he had been playing second fiddle to the young 'un for quite a long time.


When he cautioned his wife — whose partiality for Talbot was noticeable— that she was playing with fire, she retorted that he was a jealous old fool. On one occasion he watched his wife and Talbot in the kitchen by themselves and noticed how the light was doused. He did not interrupt them through a; kind of fear, but afterwards accused them.


His Winifred then said she loved Talbot's little finger more than her husband's whole anatomy, and Intended to please herself. ; Being past the fighting- age, to eject; the pair from the house was out of the question, but he did the next best thing, ordered Talbot to vacate the premises and take the woman with him. They showed a disinclination to obey his orders, but shortly did so.

Litigation for Lucre

However, the bitterness -was only beginning then for half a dozen times afterwards Mrs. Northey pursued him to the maintenance court. When he inquired If she had enough of litigation, she replied In the negative, and added that even the children he was keeping didn't really belong to him.

Of course he was Jealous. Who wouldn't be under such circumstances?

Northey, who is still working at the Coalcliff Colliery, admitted having handed over his property to his son Martin, and thought it was the wisest course, he being sure that Martin would do full Justice to the other children.

He wrote to his wife that if she expressed sorrow for the cruel wrong she had done to him and the children he would meet her; but not to forgive her, and make things up.

No, he wouldn't make It up with her after she had been guilty of such conduct.


His wife, despite her heavy duties at the boarding-house, was much sought after by sick women neighbors, and was often absent from home of an evening visiting the sick.

If his wife had expressed regret he would have met her, but he could not say what would have happened then, as he didn't know.

No. he didn't set fire to the boarding house. It was a pity he had not, because of his wife's tantalising him and stigmatising him as an old ___ .

What he did, however, was to strike a match and threaten to set the place on fire. He was willing to tell the whole truth about everything, and to give straightforward answers to all reasonable questions, but he objected to being boxed about by lawyermen.


No, his temper was very good, and he never touched rum, save when he had a cold. Then a drop of hot rum and lemon did him good, but didn't entitle him to be called a rum-drinker.

Even in his room now might be found some rum and whisky, kept for emergencies.

Questioned by Mr. Clancy, the old man was sure that his wife regarded Talbot as something more than a son, or more than a boarder.

Asked if he knew the differences in their ages, Northey asserted that he was a poor judge of age, but he guessed that Talbot was 40 or 35.

But his wife — why, she ought to be, according to his chronological computation 69, yet now she claimed to be only 52.

He wouldn't admit that his wife's money made him the landlord of four houses, but asserted that It was solely his earnings which paid for them.

James Clarke, a platelayer at Thirroul, middle-aged and tall, said he went there In October, 1922. Before going there he lived In Hunter-street, Sydney, and knew Mrs. Northey as a cook But Talbot he didn't know until Mrs- Northey brought him to Hunter-street, and introduced him as her cousin Ted.

He went there every week for three months, Mrs. Northey giving out that he worked at Sargent's. Later he and his wife shifted to Crown-street, and Mrs. Northey went with them, and slept on the verandah. Talbot still visited her.

Next they went to Wollongong, Mrs. Northey as well, and Talbot continued his visits, usually coming - down on Saturday afternoon and returning on Sunday night. Talbot, took her out and always called her by her Christian name. Often on Sunday afternoons, said Clarke, he noticed Mrs. Northey going Into Talbot's room and staying there for a couple of hours before tea-time.


Once her daughter Martha returned home wet, and remarking, 'Where's mother,' was about to enter the room, when he stopped her.

He never spoke to Mrs. Northey, about it, but remarked upon It to his wife. Once he borrowed about 35s from Talbot, and Mrs. Northey evidently, knew It, for she asked him to square a debt owing by her for some new clothes by taking- It out of the money he owed Talbot.

Mr. Toose: Have you been drinking this afternoon ?— Well, what if I have? I paid for it.

How many have you taken to-day? —About eight.

Have you been convicted? — About four times, for drunkenness and two-up, but nothing else.

Did your wife know anything of Talbot's conduct? — You ask her Edward Talbot.

Are you married to her? — No I'm not.

Yet you called her your wife? —Why shouldn't I?

I knew this dirt was coming out, reflected Mr. Clarke, evidently annoyed at the disclosure.

How long have you been with the lady you call Mrs. Clarke?— Eight years.


Mrs. Gordon, known as Mrs. Clarke, bore out her paramour's evidence regarding Talbot visiting Mrs. Northey at week-ends at Thirroul, and their going out at night together.

However, she never noticed anything, except that one morning on going Into Talbot's room to gather up the washing she noticed Mrs. Northey's shoes there.


Mr. Toose: Did Mrs. Northey's solicitor ask if you had seen anything wrong at your house? — Yes.

Did you say no?— I said I had seen nothing. Did he ask you to become a witness for her? — He asked me to be a witness in the case. I said, 'I don't want anything to do with that old woman.'

And did you say, 'She has done me an injury'? — Yes.

And you would not go to court on any condition for Mrs. Northey — I said I would not go to court.

Remember Mrs. Northey asking if you intended to marry Clarke? — Yes,

Did you say he was such a waster that you wouldn't think of doing so?— No.

Did she say that unless you married the man she couldn't continue living in the house? — I know nothing about it. I had to tell her to pack up and get out at once,' said Mrs. Clarke; 'she was too dirty, and was spoiling the food. And I couldn't stand Talbot's visits to her. There was £22 owing to her for wages, which she asked me to mind, saying she was saving it up to fight old Northey.


Martha E. Northey a 19-year-old daughter of the parties, who knew Talbot before he went to the war, and afterwards, stated that her mother often took Talbot's clean clothes into the bathroom after he entered In his dirty clothes. The door would be closed at such times. Her mother cautioned her against telling her father anything, re marking that he was too old, and had never been any good to her.

It was customary for proprietresses of boarding-houses In mining villages to insist on their boarders, on coming home from work, washing themselves thoroughly; yet she had not seen her mother attending to anybody but Talbot.

The girl was subjected to a Iong cross-examination, tending to show that Talbot courted her, and not her mother , but she maintained that this view was erroneous.

She denied ever asking Talbot for money, explaining that a tennis racquet presented to her by him at Xmas was prompted by her mother.

Mr. Clancy: Did you say to Talbot. 'Dad wants me to give evidence, but I know of nothing wrong between mother and you?'— No.


The fact was she didn't like Talbot, though she wrote letters to him at the war. They were never sweethearts, and after her mother left home her dislike increased


Mr. Clancy read a letter which had been written by the girl to Talbot, conveying some startling news from Bellambi, such as 'Mr. Clarke is working, and is off the booze,' and begging him to send her £2, as she was 'In a devil of a fix.' She sent her love also. Her explanation was that she heard he was sending her mother money, and felt inquisitive as to whether he would send her any as well.

At the time she -wrote thus she was perfectly aware that her father was suing for divorce, and for what reason.


Archer Crane, a grey-haired ex-miner from Woonona, who had known the Northeys for many years, said one Sunday In August, 1920, a fortnight after his daughter's marriage, he went to Northey's on a visit, along with his daughter and her husband.

After tea he was chatting to Northey, when Mrs. Northey said she was going to Woonona to visit a sick woman, with Ted Talbot, in a sulky.

About 10 o'clock he left for home, about a mile away, and in York-road he encountered the sulky, which he knew well, pulled up alongside the road without any lights.

He went to examine it, and saw two objects lying in the water-table. He said 'Good night,' but received no Mrs. Northey and Talbot rose to their feet, and he walked on. It was a narrow road, with electric light posts a good distance apart. His daughter and her husband were following behind him, but not near.

Crane, who couldn't even write his own name, was questioned about the evidence which he gave at another court concerning the same episode.

There he said that Mrs. Nortney and Talbot were sitting together, not lying down, and were in full view of anybody coming along the road.


Mrs Sarah Ann Morgan, of Bellambi, a buxom woman of middle age, told how Mrs. Northey, before leaving home, stated that she loved Talbots little finger better than, her husband's whole body She had previously confided that Northey was no good to Her.

Martin Northey, a grown son of the couple, remembered his father telling his mother that he had watched her, and seen her and Talbot In the kitchen with the light out.

She replied, 'We weren't there very long.' His father said, 'Quite long enough to commit adultery, and mining to Talbot said, 'Well, Ted, what would you think If you were in my place?' 'The same as you,' replied Talbot.

His father told Talbot to leave and take the woman with him, but Talbot replied. 'I'll leave, but won't take the

Martin, who is 24, kept friendly with Talbot all the time, and shook hands at parting. After his mother left home his father made over his property to

Still he denied telling his mother, when she called to see him, to clear out, or adding, 'This ranch belongs to me.'

However, he had bought a motor-car for cash since. Still he had never noticed anything suspicious between his mother and Talbot, who shared his room.


Winifred Northey, the respondent, who has been employed at the Wollongong Hospital for 18 months, thought her age was 57, and gave an emphatic denial to the misconduct charged.

She explained that Talbot was handy and willing about the house, and amongst others had driven her In the sulky to Wollongong on Friday night, with her husband's permission. Often she called her husband a jealous old man but never used vulgarisms.

On the other hand, he made filthy remarks to her, which caused her to retort, 'You would turn any woman against you.'


He was very bad-tempered, and one day after he had tantalised her, she did remark to Mrs. Morgan, 'I'd sooner Talbots little finger than his whole body,' but she meant no wrong by that. She often uttered similar sentiments concerning her son Martin.


After Talbot left her husband accused her of misconduct, saying he could prove it. She exclaimed, 'What?'

He reiterated his nasty accusation, and then she replied, 'Well, If you can prove that, and we have children grown up I'll walk out of the house.' And she left soon afterwards.

Concerning Crane's evidence against her, Mrs. Northey said that when being driven homewards by Talbot, after they turned into York-road, she asked him to let her out and to drive on for a few minutes. This was after her custom, no matter who was driving.

As she was overtrading him again, she passed a couple she knew sitting by the road-side, and spoke to them. 'just as the sulky started again they met Crane, his daughter, and son-in-law, on their way home. She said to Crane, who had his little grandchild by the hand, 'You're Just getting home; I'm sorry you're so late. What's dadda doing?' He answered, 'He's just gone to bed.' She called good night to the others, who were a little distance off, and drove on home.


The evidence given against her by Clarke and his lady, she described as very far-fetched, and most untruthful.

When staying with them at Thirroul, Talbot came there three times and took Martha out in the afternoon.

Once he brought a tennis racquet for Martha. Talbot was nothing to her; he had never given her a present, and the only time he was out with her at Thirroul was when he accompanied her and another woman to the train.

Just before the Bulli Court case, she was at Mr. McNaughton's, when her daughter Martha came in crying, and in answer to Mrs. McNaughton's inquiry, said he had Just received a subpoena. She added that her father made her swear lies against her mother at the Wollongong Court, and… well for doing so. Mr. Naughton asked If she thought it was a right thing to do, but she didn't answer, and when he asked if she ever saw anything wrong with her mother, she answered, 'No, never.'


It was untrue that she counselled her daughter to keep a still tongue; she had never done anything to feel ashamed of. True she had not lived with her husband as man and wife for many years, but a very good reason existed for it.


Henry McNaughton, .J.P. the president of Bulli Shire, at whose house Mrs. Northey was employed for six months, gave her an excellent character, and confirmed Martha Northey’s declaration about swearing lies for her father.

Constable Norman Breeze, of Thirroul. who had known Mrs. Northey 12 years, both at Bellambi and Thirroul, had never seen her with Talbot, whom he didn't know.

When Mrs. Clarke was served with a subpoena, she remarked that she was dopey last time, but wouldn't be this time.'

Solicitor Morgan, of Wollongong, related that when Martha Northey was called Into the Bulli Court she said. 'I won't give evidence against my mother. What I said at the Wollongong Court was all lies.'


He first heard of the charge of misconduct at Mrs. Clarke's last Friday, and at once telephoned to Mrs. Clarke, who said she knew nothing about it and had not been subpoenaed. She said that she had never seen anything wrong with Mrs. Northey in her house.

On this he asked if she would be a witness for Mrs. Northey. 'No. I'll have nothing to do with that old woman She did me an injury once.'


The co-respondent, Edward Talbot, wiry und active, partly bald, 35 years of age, employed at Sargent's, said he boarded at Northey's for a year before he went to the war and for more than a year after his return in 1919.

His evidence was a complete refutation of the charge levelled against him and respondent, whom he respected, and immediately quitted the house as soon as he realised that Northey regarded him as an disturbing element. Northey was farther from the truth than the calumniation.

The case lasted four days altogether, coming to an end on Thursday, when his Honor dismisses both cases, with costs against the aged petitioner. Truth (Sydney, NSW : 1894 - 1954) Sunday 26 October 1924 p 12

John was well known in the Illawarra district as 'a splendid ploughmaker'. In the 12th Illawarra Agricultural Show, held at Market Square Wollongong in 1857, he won special award for a new plough. This was followed by awards for the best plough at the 1857 and 1858 Dapto Shows (these achievements prompting the above description to be made by Mrs Warrington in the Town and Country Journal 17.01.1906 when she was asked to reminisce of the first Dapto Show, (she being 1 of 4 locals present at both the 1st and 50th shows. The mention of his name in the local press was not uncommon being linked with ploughing matches, court cases (for recovery of debts), or lists pertaining to donations for schools, roads etc, or the support of candidates for forth coming elections. He was a member of Dapto Show Committee 1866 and 1867. He was nominated for Central Illawarra Council in 1872 but declined the nomination. At the 1879 International Exhibition in Sydney he exhibited a sample of shingles.

The Island County Times (Coupeville, Washington, U.S.) reports the death of Mr. Thomas Nunan, who passed the early years of his life at Dapto, and who was the brother of Mr. Timothy Nunan and Mrs. C. Hore, of that district. The cause of death was la grippe. The Times says the deceased was assessor of Island County and for more than 30 years an honored and prominent citizen of Whidby Island. The following sketch of his life is given : —

'Thomas Nunan was born in Limerick, Ireland, Nov. 17, 1839. When one year old his parents moved to Australia, and here his childhood and youth were passed. In 1858 he came to Puget Sound, landing at Port Townsend. Before leaving Australia he married Miss Elizabeth M'Crohan, whom he had known from childhood, and who survives him. The same year of their arrival from Australia they settled on land near Oak Harbor, and with the exception of five years spent in Seattle were residents of this county from that time. In 1880 deceased moved to Seattle, and in partnership with J. F. T. Mitchell established a shipyard and marine ways on the water front where the Northern Pacific depot now stands, which they conducted five years. Being somewhat broken in health from the effects of a severe attack of typhoid fever, from which he never fully recovered, he returned to Whidby Island, where the remainder of his days were passed.

Deceased was the father of twelve children — Elizabeth, Frederick G., George F., Grace M., Thomas E. M. D„ Louise M., now Mrs. Geo. B. Thornton, Herbert G.

Kate M., now Mrs. L. P. Byrne, W. A., Charlotte and Mamie. Elizabeth and Grace were stricken down in young womanhood with diphtheria, both dying the same week. Years afterwards, while living in Seattle, Charlotte and Mamie were stricken with the same dread disease and they too died within a week. Frederick was drowned off Snakalun Point eight years ago while employed as engineer of the launch of a coast survey schooner.

No citizen of our community ever enjoyed more fully, none more richly merited, the confidence, esteem, and respect of his fellow men than did Thomas Nunan. He was a man of the strictest integrity, scrupulously honest, conscientious and upright in all his relations with men, a devoted _husband and a kind father in his family. He leaves his family the best of all legacies, the record of an honorable and righteous life. He served for 12 years as county commissioner. In 1890 he was elected sheriff and served two terms. Last fall he was elected assessor, the only candidate on the democratic ticket who was elected. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 20 August 1895 p 2

Husband a farmer

Her husband Timothy purchased 49a at West Dapto in 1857 - high on the mountain slopes, some 2kms south of and level with the present day Wongawilli mine. Here he built a single storey house (with attic) from local materials - rock, sandstone and cedar, and filled it with hand carved cedar furniture. Water was obtained from springs higher on the mountainside and conveyed, by way of a series of troughs made from split and hollowed cabbage tree palms, to a large tub hewn from a sandstone block which stood adjacent to the back door of the house. He was a member of the Dapto Show Committee in 1866 and 1867. At the 1879 and 1880 Dapto Shows he won awards for horses, at the 1887 Show, he gained awards for cut flowers, agricultural produce and pot plants. His name appeared in the local press a number of times in support of candidates for forthcoming elections, and in 1876 he supported separation of ward 3 of Central Illawarra Council into a separate municipality.
