On June 4th, Mrs. T. Palfreyman died at her home at Corrimal after nine weary weeks of illness. Gentle in disposition and kind in spirit, and generous in her hospitality to our ministers, she will be missed by her family and the church.

The high regard and deep respect in which she was held were seen in the large number of people who gathered sympathetically at her funeral. Loved in her lifetime, she is greatly lamented in her death; especially did her devotion to her family call forth admirable qualities of true womanhood, so that her children and her children's children arise and call her blessed. Born at Wortley, York shire, England, and coming to Corrimal, New South Wales, in .the year 1888, she spent 28 years of happiness with her husband and family. As a member of the church, she made few pretensions, and her profession of religion was always of the sincere and unostentatious kind; but her faith in her Saviour was of a very real character. A short service was conducted at her home, and then at the grave by the circuit ministers, Revs. Frank Duesbury and Ambrose Fletcher. ' Jesu, Lover of My Soul, ' ' and ' ' Rock of Ages, ' ' being sung at each of the services. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the devoted daughter who nursed her, and the faithful husband who cared for her, and the other members of the family, because of their sad loss. The eternal God was her refuge. Her dying, like her life, was' peaceful. She was laid to rest in the Wollongong cemetery The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 29 July 1916 p 11

In addition to carrying out her professional duties as ladies nurse for the past 20 years at Woonona, Nurse Pallier has by her kindness, charitable actions, and help in the time of sickness and trouble, endeared herself to the whole of the community. To in a small way demonstrate the esteem and respect in which she is held, occasion was taken before commencing the performance at the Princess Theatre last night to present her with a wallet of notes In doing so Councillor Southern referred in eulogistic terms to the nurse's many kindly and charitable actions, and her willingness to help in all cases of sickness and distress.

William Harrison appeared charged with having, on the 2nd instant, violently assaulted, ravished, and carnally known Christina Wilson, wife of William Wilson, of Crown-street, Wollongong.

Mr. Owen appeared for defendant.

Senior-Sergeant Sheridan having stated the case, called Proseoutrix, who deposed as follows: I am a married woman, being the wife of William Wilson, tailor, of Crown-street ; I know defendant, who is a hairdresser, also in Crown-street ; on the evening of Tuesday, the 1st instant, defendant was at my place ; my husband was then present ; my husband then asked him if he would mind to come up and dress my hair for the ball on the following evening ; he said he would my husband then told him not to come unless he (my husband) was present ; about 10 in the forenoon of the following day defendant came to my house ; my husband was not with him; my door was open at the time ; the house is in Upper Crown-street when he entered he said, ' Good morning,' and I replied in the same words; he asked me how I was, and I said I was well ; he closed the door in the meanwhile, and turned the key locking the door ; before he locked the door he asked me if I was ready for him to dress my hair ; I said I was ; he then did my hair, standing before me ; and when he had done my hair he had me in such a position that I could not move ; I told him to stop, and he said it was too late ; I went to scream, but he put his hand on my mouth. Until he had done what he wanted; I was in such a state afterwards that I did not know whether he spoke, or not. I struggled a few moments when he assaulted me, but I could not scream out, as he had his hand on my mouth ; he committed the assault against my will; my husband came home to dinner the same day at 1 o'clock; I then informed him of what had taken place ; I laid the information at the Police Office on Friday, and should have done so on Thursday had it not been on account of illness,

Cross-examined by Mr. Owen: I informed my husband of the occurrence when he came home to dinner ; defendant did not have dinner with us that day ; he was not at our house when my husband returned at dinner time . He left as soon as he had done the deed. I did go to the ball that night ; I am not aware whether or not my husband knew that Harrison was to be there also ; it was not the ball that caused me to be sick on Thursday ; my husband was not sick on the same day ; when defendant arrived at the house he came in at the side door; he did not enter by the front door, which was locked all the forenoon ; he locked the door before he did my hair he was about half hour or three-quarters doing my hair ; I did not notice him locking the door first ; I did not at first take any notice of his rudeness ; I did not ask him whether he would like to curl my hair in the front room or the bed-room ; I was not lying on the sofa when he came in ; I did not put my arms round him ; I could not make a noise to alarm the neighbours ; I could not give alarm after he left, as he left me senseless ; I was not senseless when my husband came home, nor too senseless to go to the ball that night ; I cannot say how long I remained senseless ; defendant did not go out into the street with my husband at dinner time the same day ; I saw defendant at the ball that night ; I did not go to defendant's shop that evening, nor near it ; I did not ask him to dance with me that evening ; I never sent defendant any letter or poetry ; I don't know that my husband has asked defendant for any verses of mine and got them back from him ; there are people living all round my house; the nearest lives across Cutcher's Lane ; that is a house that is not more than ten or twelve yards from our house ; defendant was in the habit of going frequently to our house when my husband was present ; I was not in the habit of going almost every night to his shop ; I did not scream ; I told him to be quiet; I know what he intended to do, but I raised no alarm ; I never was alone with defendant before then ; I was not alone with defendant on Sunday night week when my husband Went across to Osborne's ; I don't know whether or not my husband went to defendant's shop and got shaved by him on the night in question ; I never walked on the beach with him ; I was dressed in my usual clothes on the occasion of the assault, but I don't think any of them were injured; I heard the arrangement made between defendant and my husband to the effect that my husband should be present when he (defendant) should do my hair ; I did not object to defendant coming to do it in my husband's absence, as I thought he was decent and safe. I cannot give a reason for not having given alarm after defendant had committed the offence ; defendant did not ask me to dance with him at the ball. I did dance at the ball with my brother and ot hers. My illness on Thursday was not caused by defendant. I have no scratches or bruises whatever after my struggle with defendant. I have had no conversation with defendant since then, but cannot say whether or not my husband has had a conversation with him.

I prepared my husband's dinner between the time the offence was committed and my husband's return at 1 o'clock- ; defendant was playing some instrument on the platform at the ball on the evening in question. There were two other's also playing the fiddle ; it was a public ball given by the Dean and at which we paid to go in ; I was speaking to the defendant about several things while he was doing my hair j I cannot give a reason for not giving alarm before he put his hand on my mouth. I did not go to defendant's shop on the morning mentioned, and ask him to come at once and curl my hair. (Several portions of prosecutrix statement have been omitted in the foregoing, being unfit for publication.)

William Wilson deposed: I am the husband of the last Witness, and a tailor by trade ; on Tuesday evening I had a conversation with defendant at his own house about doing my wife's hair; I asked him if he would mind dressing my wife’s hair for the ball, and he said ' Yes, he would” I told him not to go to my house unless I was with him ; he said he would not ; on the following day, when I went m home to dinner as usual, my wife informed me of something that had taken place in consequence of what she told me, requested her to take proceedings against Mr. Harrison she was laid upon the following day (Thursday), otherwise she would have taken proceedings on that day ; she did soon Friday ; she was so upset about the matter that she said she could not lay the information on the the offence was committed ; defendant was in the habit of going to my house with me, but not alone ; we used to have a game of cards together in the evening I don't know that my wife ever sent him any poetry ; never called on him for any such ; I am four months married ; myself and wife went to the ball at the Temperance Hall on the same night; defendant did not ask my wife to dance at the bail, and she did not dance.

Cross-examined by Mr. Owen I will not swear that my wife did not ask defendant to dance with. her at the ball ; I take her word, however, that she did not ; I did not ask him to return me a letter he had from my wife. He said he had a letter written by my wife, and I said it was false ; he gave me a printed piece of poetry, which he said he got from my wife, but I did not own it it had not written on it the words, ' From one who loves you dearly ; ' Peter Hammer was present when defendant gave me the printed piece of poetry ; he asked me if I knew the poetry, and I said 'No ;' George Cochrane was also present at the time.

For the defence,— George Cochrane deposed on Wednesday last, the 2nd August, I recollect seeing prosecutrix at defendant's shop ; she was about half in and half out of his door, and spoke to defendant she asked him could he go up to her house then to curl her hair, and he replied he was just going, or something to that effect, and he went right straight up; that was about 11 o'clock in the forenoon ; I was present when some poetry was returned by defendant he had two pieces of poetry, and showed them to Wilson, and asked him if he ever saw them before ; Wilson said, ' Yes, but I can't help that that is not my fault.'

William Macdonnell said : On Wednesday last I saw William Wilson and defendant together on the street between Wilson's residences and the Caledonian Hotel ; they were then walking from Wilson's residence to the Caledonian Hotel, and I saw them afterwards in the billiard-room of that hotel ; I met Wilson coming out of the billiard- room, and we then spoke to each other ; on the evening of the same day I saw prosecutrix in defendant's shop that was between 7 and 8 o'clock, it being the night of the ball ; I have frequently seen her in defendant's shop in the evening time; on the night in question she was not purchasing anything to the best of my belief ; she was talking to defendant.

Frederick Macdonnell deposed I saw William Wilson and Harrison together ;it the Caledonian Hotel, on Wednesday last, between 1 and 2 o'clock in the afternoon ; they were then playing billiards, but I cannot say that they were playing together I am certain I saw them speaking together on that occasion ; I have seen them drink together since I believe Harrison and Wilson came into the billiard-room together.

John Buckley said: I was at the Caledonian Hotel, on Wednesday last, about 1 o'clock; I saw

Wilson and Harrison come in there together; they remained there about twenty minutes; Wilson left first, saying, ' I must go to work;' he and defendant seemed friendly then there was a bet between Harrison and me, and Wilson held the stakes, and handed the money over to Harrison at the end of the game.

Peter Hammer gave evidence, which was in- material)

William Wilson, re-called, said: If William M Macdonnell states that my wife was at Harrison’s shop between 7 and 8 o'clock on Wednesday night last, it is not true we were in the same room from half-past 6 until we went to the ball, which was about half past 8 o'clock I escorted to the ball, and I am quite sure she could not have gone to Harrison's without my being aware of it.

After hearing the whole of the evidence, which occupied the Bench from 1 o'clock until past 7 in the the evening, their Worships dismissed the case. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 11 August 1876 p 2

PALMER— WILSON.— On the 14th April instant, at the Presbyterian Manse, by the Rev. R. H. Waugh, M.A., Charles Palmer, of London, England, to Christina Ann Wilson, of Wollongong. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 22 April 1884 p 2


Mrs. Christina Palmer, who died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Jack North, Auburn St. Wollongong, on Monday, aged 88 years, had seen the first train to enter Wollongong   station;- the construction of Belmore Basin at the Wollongong Harbour, and could remember the time when Crown street was practically a bullock track with the teams pulling loads of farm produce for shipment by boat to Sydney. Born at Jamberoo, she had resided in Wollongong for over 80 years, her parents being Mr. and Mrs. Hammer, the former conducting a tailoring business in the town. She married Mr. Charles Palmer, who was a bricklayer   by occupation, and who predeceased his wife by some years. The late Mrs. Palmer was surprisingly active until a short time before   her death. She was in full possession of her faculties and had only lost one   tooth in her life, that being extracted by a chemist in the days before a dentist was established in the town.   She was of a particularly happy disposition, friendly with everyone, and in turn all who came in contact with her could not help but admire her. She had a fund of reminiscences of the early days of Wollongong and district, and had seen the town grow, from one of several hundred inhabitants to the present population of over 20,000. She could remember the Port Kembla tribe of aborigines camping on Peacock Hill, near where the Christian Brothers College now stands, while they received an issue of blankets. She is survived by five daughters, Mrs. Hammond (Echuca), Mrs. I. Tubman (Wollongong), Mrs. N. Gietz (Sydney), Mrs. A. Nash (Punchbowl), Mrs. Jack North (Wollongong). Two sons predeceased their mother. There are 14 grandchildren and five great grand children. After a service held in Parsons' funeral parlours, the remains were interred in the Church of England section of the Wollongong cemetery on Tuesday.   Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 7 September 1945 p 6

Widespread regret was expressed on Saturday last when the death was announced of Mrs. Catherine Agnes (Cassie) Parkinson, beloved wife of Mr. Edward Parkinson, and dear mother of Jack, Laura, Ger- trude, James, Bernard, Harry and Frederick, of 123 Keira street, Wollongong.

The late Mrs. Parkinson, who was 59 years of age, had not enjoyed the best of health for some months past.

On the previous Monday she had been removed to Wollongong Hospital, where the end came.

Mrs. Parkinson was a good neighbor and a wonderful mother to her well-known family, all of whom are a credit to her. As her husband was a member of the Wollongong Band for many years, Mrs. Parkinson with Mrs. Harry Jones, worked hard for the progress of the band, helping at socials and in many other ways.

The late Mrs. Parkinson was a member of the well-known Woods family. Sisters are Mrs. Tom Byron (Wollongong) and Mrs. M. Meehan (Russell Vale), while brothers are Ex Councillors John Woods (Rixons Pass (who is at present an inmate of Sydney Hospital), Arthur Woods (Kensington), G. Woods (Corrimal) and D.

On Monday death claimed a very old and highly respected resident of Wollongong, in the person of Mrs. Parkinson, relict of the late Mr. J. Parkinson, who for many years conducted a cordial factory. She was a woman of very high ideals and neighbourly instincts, and in her own quiet way was always a supporter of charitable movements.

She was a devoted adherent of her Church, and her deep religious convictions were reflected in her life. Twenty- five years ago the death occurred of her husband. Four members of her family of twelve also predeceased her, viz., Messrs. Alfred and Frank, both of whom were killed at the Port Kembla Power House, with a lapse of eight years, between each fatality. Joseph and Theresa, who died before reaching maturity. The surviving members of the family are Messrs. William (President Wollongong Hospital), Edward, Vincent, James, Misses Mary, Gertrude and Cecelia and Mrs. T. Ryan. The late Mrs. Parkinson was born 78 years ago at Cappawhite, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, her maiden name being   Ryan. When 12 years of age she came to this State with her mother and brother. They went to reside at Cooma, where the deceased remained until her marriage in 1871. With her husband she went to reside at Bombala, where her husband carried on a bakery and cordial factory. In 1882 the family moved to Wollongong, where Mr. Parkinson managed a cordial factory for the late Mr. W. Osborne. After a few   months, Mr. Parkinson opened a factory of his own in premises adjacent   to Bode's Hotel. It was carried on their until 1898, when it was moved   to premises in Crown Street, where it was carried on for 26 years. About   four years ago a move was made into the present up-to-date factory. On Wednesday the remains were taken to St. Francis Xavier's Church, where an impressive service was conducted by Very Rev. Father Doherty,     P.P., V.F. As the coffin was borne   from the Church, Miss Dwyer, who   presided at the organ, played the Dead   March. A large cortege followed the   remains to their last resting place in   the Wollongong cemetery, where the   last sad rites were performed by Father Doherty.   We extend our sympathy to the bereaved family.

Mr. Edward Parkyns has also been granted a lease … of a portion of the island nearest to Red Point, being the westernmost of the Five Islands, off Wollongong, for the purposes of a fishery. Empire 12 October 1868

To the right along the coast is seen the Five Islands on one of which, I am informed, that a retired sailor named Perkins, has taken up his abode, with his wife and family. He has a nice little garden, also keep cows and goats, but maintains himself principally by fishing. Sharks abound there, and the oil which he procures from this source, Perkins sells in Sydney. Empire 28 August 1871



The largest of the Five Islands (says the Illawarra Mercury) has been inhabited for some years past by Mr. Perkins and his family, who have lived thereon, pursuing fishing as a means of livelihood. Some time ago, however, Mr. Perkins, made a selection at Broken Bay, and frequently made trips between his “island home” and there in his fishing boat. About three weeks or a month since he left his family on one of his usual trips, intending to be absent only a few days, but so far as we are aware, has not returned up to the present time. On Thursday last, Mr. F. Jenkins, while fishing on the rocks opposite the island, saw Mrs. Perkins waving a cloth, and making other signals, which he concluded were an intimation of death or distress among the lonely family. He had no means of communicating with the island, however, and neither did Mrs. Perkins appear to have any facilities for reaching the mainland. As the only alternative, Mr, Jenkins did the very best he could under the circumstances, by acquainting senior-sergeant Sheridan of what he had noticed on the island During the whole of Thursday night a large fire was observed to be burning on the island, and that fact gave additional intensity to the anxiety of the townspeople and other to know what could be amiss there, On Friday forenoon the captain of the Illalong, which happened to be to the harbour, very kindly gave one of the steamer's lifeboats to the party. As it was supposed by some that want of provisions might be the cause of the strange signals seen, Mr. Jenkins, of Berkeley, and Mrs, Davis, of the Harp Inn, with praiseworthy forethought and generosity, sent a liberal supply of bread, bacon, tea and sugar, and other articles, to be taken by the boat for the benefit of Mrs Perkins and family, should it be found that they stood in need, of such. Messrs. Thomas, Joseph, and Richard Baxter, being well acquainted with the islands, and hearing of the circumstance, relinquished their work for the day, and volunteered their services in the boat. After being away nearly the whole of the day, the boat returned to the basin about 5 o'clock in the afternoon, when a considerable number of persons were on the wharf, anxiously awaiting tho news from the island. It was then ascertained that Mrs. Perkins and six children, the eldest of whom is only about 13 years, had been for ten days without any bread, meat, or tea and sugar, their only means of subsistence during that time being goats milk and the eggs of mutton birds, a large number of which inhabited the island. They also succeeded occasionally in catching some of the birds, and had killed a kid; but although there are other goats and a large number of rabbits on the island they could not be either caught or killed by the suffering and helpless family. Of course, it would not have suited them to have killed the goats that were being milked As may be imagined, the family were joyously glad to see the boat and its crew and provisions come to their relief and Mrs. Perkins said the bountiful supply of provisions obtained would last them a week, and in the meantime she hoped her husband would return; but she felt very anxious and uneasy lest some accident might have happened to him and her eldest son, who accompanied his father in the boat when he last left the island for Broken Bay. The Sydney Morning Herald 26 October 1871

The Perkins Family- We have been informed that Mr Perkins arrived at the Five Islands a few days ago, having made the trip from Broken Bay in his boat as usual. We understand Senior Sergeant Sheridan took immediate means of communicating with Mr Perkins about the critical position in which his family were situated on the island in consequence of his protracted absence, and that he returned to them at once on hearing that unpleasant news. Illawarra Mercury October 27 1871

In 1867 a house was built on Big Island by the Perkins family, who lived there until 1872, grazing cattle and catching sharks.

The largest island in the Five Islands group is Big Island, formerly known as “Perkins” Island. The name Perkins (Parkyns) was from a family who lived on the Island for some years, probably between 1868 and 1872. The original Perkins (Parkyns) established a home on the Island and made a living by catching sharks and selling oil.

MRS. JAMES PARRISH. On Saturday evening at about 10 o'clock there passed away, after a long illness, Mrs. James Parrish, wife of the late Mr. James Parrish, auctioneer, of this town. Mrs Parrish was a comparatively young woman, being 36 years of age. What makes the case particularly sad is the fact that three little girls, the youngest only 3 years of age, are left without mother or father to do that which parents alone can extend to the fullest. The funeral took-place on Sunday afternoon to the Anglican portion of the, Mullumbimby cemetery, where Rev. H. J. Velvin conducted the burial service. At the conclusion of the service at the graveside he spoke of the friends who had helped so materially to lighten the burden, of sickness — mentioning especially, Mr. and Mrs.. F. Hattersley. Mrs Parrish was born at Albion Park. Her family, Dawes, are well known-on the South Coast. Mullumbimby Star (NSW : 1906 - 1936) Thursday 2 October 1913 Page 4

The Late Mrs. Reuben Parsons!

The late Mrs. Reuben Parsons whose funeral took place on Sunday afternoon was perhaps the oldest resident, in the Illawarra district at the time of her death She was in her 91 st year, an age rarely reached among the human family. About two-thirds of her lifetime was spent in Wollongong, where she and her late husband arrived in the early forties.

On reaching the colony a les years before, they went to Parramatta, but eventually came to Wollongong when stated. There they brought up a family and established by degrees the business; now known as that, of Messrs. A. Parsons and Co ironmongers.

The family consisted of three sons and three daughters — Rev. Adin Parsons late Mr. Aquida Parsons, Mr Enos Parsons. Mrs. W .J Poulter, Mrs. W. P Tate and Mrs. Johnstone Graham. Like parents like children, all were models of probity and propriety. The deceased lady was able to move about, until within a very few days of her death, her faculties also remaining almost wholly unimpaired a the last. A considerable number attended the funeral, the remains being interred in the Methodist cemetery within the family enclosure there.

On Tuesday another of the grand old pioneers of the district passed on to her great reward, in the person of Mrs. Maria Parsons. At the time of her death she was residing with her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. George Parsons, 15 Robinson Street, Wollongong. The late Mrs. Parsons Was born 82 years ago, at Flagstaff Hill, Berkeley, and was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs Hill, who were well known in that district. She married her late husband, Mr. Ira Parsons, who predeceased her by 43 years, in 1878, at the C. of E., Wollongong, and had lived all her life in and about Wollongong. She had lived to see many changes and had vivid recollections of the days of bushrangers, and when the mode of transport was by bullock waggon. She was of a kindly nature, and those who are left to mourn the loss or a fond mother are Jim, George, Jack, Perce and Emma (Mrs. W. David), while Edward Hill, Frank and Fred predeceased their mother. Mrs, S. Williamson, of Sydney, who is a sister, is the only surviving member of the Hill family. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 17 July 1936 p 5

Sudden Death of Mrs. M. E. Parsons

The Scripture tells us that in the midst of life we are in death That quotation aptly applies to the sudden and unexpected death of, Mrs. Mary Ellen Parsons, wife of Ald. Henry M. Parsons, and an ex Mayoress of Wollongong.

On Monday morning last the late Mrs Parsons went about her house hold dunes as usual. At 9 a.m. she complained of a headache and a little later she was seized with a sudden illness which necessitated her immediate removal to the District Hospital, where the end came about 3.30 p.m. Such a sudden shock to her devoted husband, their only son Harry, and relatives generally, may be more vividly imagined than described, and when the news of her passing became circulated, it was responsible for casting a curtain of gloom over the whole community. Mrs. Parsons, who was 62 years of age, had by her quiet and unassuming nature, endeared herself to a very wide circle of friends and during her term as Mayoress of Wollongong her very many duties brought her into contact with so many people that additional and lasting friendships were established on sound foundations. Mrs. Parsons carried out her civic duties faithfully and well and public gatherings appreciated her presence at all times. Before her marriage the late Mrs Parsons was a Miss Hissett, of Woonona. Her only sister (Mrs. B. Hawkens) predeceased her, but the latter 's husband was present at the funeral. In their home life, Ald. Parsons, and his late wife were always real pals. After their son Harry joined the ranks of the Benedict’s, they became — in the Australian vernacular — 'inseparable cobbers.' It would be a very boisterous Wednesday or Saturday if Mr. and Mrs. Parsons did not visit the Pictures - and the same applied to other public functions they attended together - eisteddfods, concerts, etc. It is of interest to note that the late Mrs. Parsons was a native of Lithgow and came to the South Coast when a small girl. She received her education at Bulli-Woonona. The couple were married at St. Michael's Church of England, Wollongong, by the late Bishop D'Arcy Irvine, and have since resided on the one site in Keira street. The issue of the union was a son, and daughter but the latter died some years ago. Mrs. Parsons never tired of knitting something for soldiers. THE FUNERAL The funeral left Parsons' funeral parlor in Keira street for the C. of E. cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, the cortege being a lengthy one and representative of all sections of the community. The chief mourners included the husband, son Harry and wife and son; Rev. Leland Parsons, Frank, Alf Arthur and Son (brothers-in-law) Mesdames Inness and Staff (sisters in-law) and other relatives. Another brother-in-law, Mr. Archie Parsons, was too ill to attend. The chapel was thronged with sympathisers, including the Mayor of Wollongong (Ald. Pryor) Alder men Lang, Dawson, Hanley, Davies, and other aldermen; the town clerk (Mr. R. B. Bell) , Mr John Shipp (over 80 years of age) and daughter, together with many persons prominent in the business life; of the town. The impressive service was conducted by Rev. R. C. M. Long, JC. of E. Rector and Rural Dean. It was a very fine gesture on his part to invite the Rev. Leland Parsons to read the Lesson, and it was also fitting that the wife of Mr. Son Parsons should preside at the organ for the singing of that beautiful hymn 'Lead Kindly Light' a favourite hymn of the deceased. The profusion of beautiful wreaths bore silent testimony to the esteem in which deceased, and relatives are held. The eulogistic reference made by Rev. R. C. M. Long, at the grave side was well-merited and appropriately phrased. He spoke of her devotion to her home to her family and to her church, and of the Christian life she had led. Rev. Gordon Robertson (Congregational) and Major Gibson (Salvation Army) were present. Other clergymen to call and offer sympathy or attend the funeral included Rev. S. T. Knight (Woonona), Rev. A. Davies (Corrimal), Rev. H. H. Childs (Corrimal) and Rev. Father Callaghan, Parish Priest of Wollongong, Before the grave was filled in the little grandson of the deceased stepped forward and dropped a beautiful bunch of roses on the casket. Meanwhile his eyes were dimmed with tears at the passing of his grandma. Pall-bearers were Aldermen Lang, Dawson, Davies, Messrs Frank Williams, D. Mclnnes and J. Parsons.

The Late Mrs. Aquila Parsons.

The sad news of the sudden death of Mrs. Aquila Parsons, of the firm of Messrs. A. Parsons and Co., caused a severe shock of melancholy feeling in Wollongong on Monday morning last. And that with very few exceptions people were unaware of the almost lightning-like attack that carried her off, made the occurrence all the more regretful. The deceased was held in high estimation as she was widely known. Indeed she was quite a foremost figure in the business ranks of the town for more than half her lifetime. And while she was deservedly popular on account of her open handed and large-hearted generosity of disposition, as well as for her splendid business qualities, her cup of sorrow frequently overflowed during the last ten or twelve years of her life. Within this time she lost her husband, her oldest son, who had become a solicitor, also a second son, and narrowly escaped losing also her now only surviving son (Mr Joseph Parsons) whoso life hung in the balance for a considerable period in the course of a severe attack of illness. And throughout the whole of these trying ordeals she was harassed with business difficulties that oven of themselves would have crushed many a less-buoyant and brave spirit than hers. Fortunately she lived to overcome all the latter troubles, and therefore, humanly speaking, her removal from the sphere of her well-deserved success in that respect appears all the more painful. But such are the uncertainties of life with all its concerns. In the midst of the gloom cast by the death of the worthy deceased it is pleasing to know that the son whom she practically literally rescued from the jaws of death only a few years ago succeeds her in the business that she managed so well under varied and adverse Circumstances.

The passing away of one so beloved by all classes of the community was awfully sudden, only on Saturday night Mrs. Parsons was at business up to the usual closing hour of ten o'clock. She said she felt slightly unwell, but walked home During the night she became slightly worse, end in the morning it was deemed advisable to send for a medical man. Dr. T. W. Lee was summoned in the morning, and Dr. H.H. Lee was also in attendance in the afternoon Notwithstanding the unremitting attention of the medical gentlemen, the patient seemed to gradually get worse, passing away at 2 a.m. on Monday morning. The cause of death was intestinal stoppage, supervening collapse. The funeral look place yesterday after noon— prior to which a service was hold at the house -and was one of the largest funerals seen in this district for some time. … Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Wednesday 17 December 1902 p 2

Ann Peak, being duly sworn, states: I am the wife of Joseph Peak, carpenter, living at Greenwell Point; the body viewed by the coroner is that of my child, Maria Peak, aged two years and nine months; on Sunday, 17th July, my child was quite well ; she was playing with calabash seeds, and took a fit of coughing, as if she had swallowed one; she commenced to breath heavily, coughed occasionally, and vomited several times; I took her to a doctor us soon as I could; I saw Dr. Pickburn, and he said another medical man should be consulted, and on the Monday I begged him to do what he could as the child was becoming exhausted; about two o'clock on Monday Drs, Reid and Pickburn had a consultation; Dr. Pickburn told me it was a serious case, and the child could not live;

I saw that myself; I begged that they would do what they could; they then determined to perform an operation; I went away from the room, and in about ten minutes I was told the child was dead; she died at the residence of Dr. Pickburn, at Terrara, on Monday, 18th July, 1870.

Isaacs Pearsons, a farmer, petitioned for a dissolution of his marriage with Amelia Pearsons, formerly Sinclair, on the ground of desertion. The parties were married in March, 1876, at Albion Park, according to the rites of the Church of England. Petitioner said that about 16 years ago they were living at the diggings near Pambula, where they kept a boarding-house. He returned home one day, and found that his wife had gone. She never said she was going; as a matter of fact, “it came to him as a surprise.” A decree nisi was granted, to be moved absolute in a month.

Our correspondent writes : — On 5th ult., Miss James, the only daughter of the late Mr. Thomas Hall James, was married to. Mr. Joseph Peckham of New Zealand. The happy event took place at the residence of the bride's mother, “Riverview” , Otford the officiating minister being the Rev. A. Mackay, of Wollongong. The bride, dressed in bronze brown corded silk, with white silk trimmings, veil and orange blossoms, looked charming. She carried an exquisite bouquet and wore a lovely gold brooch, both being the gifts of the bride groom. Mr. T. H. James gave the bride   away, and the, bridesmaids were Miss Shirley, Miss Lucas and the Misses Olive and Elsie James, the last two being little dots, who looked charming in buttercup and. cream. Mr. S. H. James acted as best man. On the conclusion of the marriage ceremony the guests, to the number of sixty, adjourned to James Hall, where a most sumptuous repast had been prepared. After the breakfast congratulatory speeches were made by Rev. A. Mackay, Mr. A. G. Gilchrist, Mr. King, Mr. Scharffe, Mr. Ryan and others. Dancing was kept up by the merry company till early   morn. The wedding presents were extremely numerous, and many young ladies, after viewing the handsome gifts, envied the young bride's start in matrimonial life. Among the many guests, besides those above mentioned, were: Mrs. James, sen., Mr. and Mr. T. H. James, Mr. and Mrs. W. James, Mr. G. James, Mr. and Mrs. Walker, Mrs. Frew, Mr. Ryan, Mr., Mrs. and Master Scharffe, Mrs. and Miss Hamilton, Mr. Allen Hamilton, Mrs. Shirley, Miss. F.

DEATH AT WOONONA. Mrs. T. Pendlebury.  

The death of Mrs. Thomas Pendlebury means the separation of a couple long resident and much respected at Woonona, also known of throughout the State, as Mr Pendlebury, by means of his brickworks, has become widely known. Mrs. Pendlebury was extremely unfortunate in that her eyesight had been very defective for an extended period, and this caused all who knew her to have much sympathy. Of advanced age, being 73 years, her general health also failed a couple of months ago, having a nurse in attendance for the intervening period. A week prior to her death, which occurred at 11.30 a.m. on Wednesday, her health was of such a pronounced serious nature that the daughter, Mrs. H. Partington, who had been making repeated visits from her home in the city, decided to remain permanently with her mother -the old lady lapsing into unconsciousness a couple of days immediately preceding the death- and the husband, son and daughter were present when the end finally occurred. The funeral left the home at Woonona at 2.30 yesterday (Thursday) afternoon for the cemetery at Bulli, where the remains were interred in the Presbyterian section, Rev. A. Wood conducting the service at the graveside. The funeral was very largely attended. There is much sympathy for Mr. Pendlebury, also in advanced years, who will miss his wife, the couple being greatly attached, and the sympathy applies also to Mr. Joseph Pendlebury (son) and Mrs. Partington (daughter). Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 10 September 1926 p 2

Family came to Woonona about 1893, husband’s brickworks supplied bricks ‘throughout the Commonwealth’. The brickworks were established in 1901.

Death of Mrs. Perrott.

We regret to have to record the death of Mrs. Perrott, of Haroldston, daughter of the late Captain Thomas Raine, of Rainham, Frederick's Valley, Bathurst, and widow of the late Robert Issel Perrott, on Thursday night, at her residence, Haroldston, after several months illness. In 1861 the deceased lady came to this district with her husband. She was born in Sydney on 16th December, 1828, and was therefore within a few days of her 91st birthday at the time of her death. She was married in the year 1854, and the result of the union was eleven children, of whom all are living except a married daughter (Mrs. Wilson). The surviving family included Messrs, Robert Perrott (Herberton, Q-), Alfred Haroldston (Chevy Chase, Armidale), Edward Montgomery (Sydney), Thomas Issell (London), Harold Athelston (Haroldston, Armidale), Mrs. Roger Wilson (Warwick), Misses Emily, Nellie, Mary, and Elizabeth (all of Haroldston). Deceased's husband, who died in 1895, at Haroldston, was for many years a police magistrate, and was stationed, amongst other towns, at Waratah, Port Macquarie, and Hay. He purchased Haroldston from the Crown in 1861, and subsequently took advantage of Sir John Robertson's Land Act to select an added area. The late Mr. Perrott laid out and developed the property during his lifetime, and. made it one of the finest in the district. By The death of Mrs. Perrott, the district loses one of the early pioneers of the district who, throughout a long residence, has held the respect of all. When she and her husband first ascended the slopes of the plateau they had to journey by bullock dray. There was no rail communication in those days, and the journey was an undertaking to try the courage of the most intrepid. Since that time there have been many developments in the district, and in its progress the Perrott family have played no unimportant part. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon in the Kelly's Plains churchyard, the remains being interred beside those of her late husband,The Armidale Express and New England General Advertiser (NSW : 1856 - 1861; 1863 - 1889; 1891 - 1954) Tuesday 16 December 1919 p 2

A tremendous blaze was responsible for completing destroying the building and contents, of the seven-roomed residence in Wentworth Road, Port Kembla, owned and occupied by Mr. Peter John Peterson, and used as a residence and maternity hospital. Fortunately there were no patients present at the time. The fire was discovered by Miss Mildred Peterson, who was awakened by the smoke, pouring into her room. She rushed immediately in to the passage, and found the centre of the building alight. She roused the rest of the household, who escaped in their night attire. The building consisted of seven rooms with kitchen, and was constructed of weatherboard. The house and contents were insured for £850 in the South British Assurance Company, and the Australian Mutual Assurance Company. Good work was done by the Fire Brigade, which was on the scene in good time, and soon had the flames in hand. The Brigade was handicapped by the low pressure in the water mains. Mrs. Butterworth and Mr. Cliff Lindsay provided refreshments for the firemen. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 2 September 1927 p 11

Mrs. David Phillips. A very genuine shock was felt through Gerringong on Wednesday afternoon last     when news of the somewhat sudden death  of the above named was whispered from  one to another. Six weeks ago the deceased was unexpectedly stricken down but with careful nursing notwithstanding her great age, 78, seemed to slowly pull round and for several days preceding her death had been able to sit up for several hours and on even the very day of her death managed   to walk from room to room through the house and then to outside door and quite gaily attended to several little changes that had been effected round the old home but which her relatives had kept from her intending a glad surprise. Shortly after returning to her room with strong voice she called to her eldest daughter who by the way was rejoicing at the happy issue of all her days and nights of devoted nursing, and was on the eve of returning to her own home and complained of a strange feeling of faintness but ere she could be replaced in bed her spirit had fled to Him who gave it. Mrs Phillips was generally admitted to be a most conscientious woman, and as such deserved and secured general   esteem. Checkered had been the life, but with all the bravery of a typical Scotch woman of the middle class and a tremendous genius for work, nobly had she aided her husband in his early efforts to redeem from gloomy forest the quiet and picturesque spot at the head of “The Gully,” in   addition to all the ordinary household cares of a large family. And then later on a duty demanding gifts and graces with which even the best of women are sometime but saintly endowed was thrown upon her, the upbringing of a second family of young grandchildren but here the   motherly instinct linked to a strong sense of duty and an intense desire to do justly, fairly overcame all difficulties. The great age has already been noted, 78; of course there is a vast difference between a blossom falling prematurely from the tree of life and the gathering of the ripened fruit. The two things are as different as when the sun in darkened at noonday and when it sets in the crimson twilight of evening   splendour. And so we bid farewell, not to, one young, strong vigorous, who has withdrawn from the sphere of activity, but to a worker worn with trials and who lays her burden down; still God forbid that we should consign to speedy forgetfulness our aged ; certainly he cannot who has for 58 long years enjoyed her fellowship, To him we extend all proper Christian sympathy. “The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord,” may he the flippant utterance of shallow grief, but, too, it may be the devout submission of a breaking heart.

Miss Jane Phillips, aged 23 years, a daughter of Mr. Michael Phillips, of Mt. Keira, who has been seriously ill for the past four or five weeks, died on Saturday afternoon. The illness from which the young lady succumbed was typhoid fever, and although her medical advisor, Dr. Kerr, regarded the case as serious, fatal results were not anticipated by him until a day or two before the dissolution took place. The deceased young lady was of a very bright and happy disposition, and was loved by all.

To be cut down at such an early age is indeed very sad, and the father, mother, and family have the sincere sympathy of all. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, and was the largest seen in the district for some time. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Wednesday 16 September 1903 p 2

Margaret Phillips v R Ewing. Plaintiff in this case, was the wife of the plaintiff in the last case. She swore that Ewing had hold of her husband by the necktie and held him until he was black in the face ; that she went to release her husband, and that Ewing drew his fist and hit her in the eye ; Constable Himes Swore that he did not see Ewing hit Mrs Phillips; he might have hit her without his seeing him. Mary Anderson, Mrs Phillips' sister, confirmed the statement made by Mrs Phillips Ewing denied the assault. The magistrates, however, thought it was proved, and as, under any circumstances, there could be no justification for a blow given in that way to a woman, fined him 10s and 1s 6d costs.

The death occurred yesterday morning of Mrs. John Phillips, of Mt Keira; many were the expressions of sympathy for, Mr. Phillips and the family. Mrs. Phillips was in her day an equestrienne of note and won a great many honours in the show ring.

The deceased who was forty-seven years of age, only took ill about 8 days ago with an attack of tonsillitis, but subsequently pleurisy and pneumonia set in, hastening the end.

Mrs. Phillips was the second daughter of Mr. Michael Carberry, at one time a resident or the Albion Park district, but now of Campbelltown.

She leaves a family of four children, two girls and two boys. The eldest girl is sixteen years of age, while the youngest had had just turned eight years. All day yesterday, friends travelled from all parts of the district to express their sympathy with the bereaved husband and children.

The funeral of Mrs. Mary Jane Philpott, wife of Mr. Samuel Philpott, was largely attended at Alstonville yesterday. Deceased was born at Kiama in 1861, and was married there 21 years later. Mr. and Mrs. Philpott came to the Richmond River district 44 years ago. Mr. Philpott was engaged in carpentry work for some years, being employed at the Wollongbar Experimental Farm, where he built the first silo on the property. Both deceased and her husband were greatly interested in the Church of England, Mr. Philpott being the builder of the church now used as a Parish Hall. This church was dedicated free of debt, being situated at Ocean View, and the original beech seats are still in use.

As with other early residents of the district, the late Mrs. Philpott was often called to the sick and injured, and she is gratefully remembered by many for her kind offices. Although in late years her illness practically confined her to her home, she was always cheery and helpful to those with whom she came in contact.

In addition to a widower, she is survived by a grown up family: George (Woodenbong), John (Alstonville), James (Queensland), Frank (Lismore), Clarence (Alstonville), Mesdames Sauer (Dungarubba), Lacey (Brisbane), Gibson (Alstonville), Day (Lismore), Burns (Sydney).

Three daughters and one son predeceased Mrs. Philpott. Messrs Thomas Fairbairn (Ballina), William and Alfred Fairbairn (Alstonville) are brothers. Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Saturday 3 June 1933 p 4

Obituary. MRS. M. D. PICKEMAN. The news yesterday morning of tile sudden death on Thursday in a private hospital at Mosman, of Mrs. M. D. Pickeman came as a shock to her wide circle of friends in Kiama and district. Leaving Kiama about 16 years ago, after a residence of more than ten years, Mrs; Pickeman had on many occasions renewed her many friendships here, she was in Kiama only about a month ago, when she was apparently in excellent health. Her husband Mr Harry Pickeman, who was at the Kiama Post Office, was well-known and deservedly popular, and his death in the influenza epidemic some twelve years ago, was widely lamented. Mrs. Pickeman, who was Miss Margaret Downs Aikman, of Gippsland, Victoria, is survived by one daughter (Joyce) Mrs. Nelson Smillie, Neutral Bay, to whom deep sympathy is extended by her Kiama friends, she too, being well known here. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon at the Rookwood cemetery, The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 19 December 1931 p 2

Once more, with feelings of deep regret, it devolves upon us to chronicle the death of one of the oldest, and a highly respected resident of the district, in the person of Mrs. Pickeman (relict of the late Mr. Robert Pickeman), who died at her residence in Terralong street during the early hours of Wednesday morning 1 st, at the age of 75 years; the Immediate cause of death being dropsy and senile decay. Deceased was born at Montrose, Scotland, in the year 1827, and immigrated (with her husband) to New South Wales early in the fifties, and has almost ever since (for a period of about, fifty years) been an inhabitant of the Kiama district, her late husband being one of the first to start a bakery business on the South Coast, Deceased, who seemed fairly well until a few days before her death, and was to be seen going about her ordinary duties as late as Saturday last, leaves one daughter (Mrs. J. W. Cockerill, of Berry), one brother (Mr. J. Findlay, sen., of Kiama), grand children, great-grand children and other relatives and friends to mourn their loss. Mrs. Pickeman was a staunch adherent of the Presbyterian Church, and her remains were interred yesterday afternoon in that portion of North Kiama cemetery set apart for that denomination, the funeral being largely attended.

Early this afternoon a shocking boating accident happened at the Minnamurra, by which seven persons lost their lives This river was to-day as usual the chief resort of pleasure seekers According to particulars to hand, it appears that Captain Honey, of the Kiama Volunteers, with Mrs Honey (formerly Miss Pike), his wife's sister, Mrs George Wood, jun (also a daughter of the late Mr J Pike), her husband (Mr I Wood), and three children-Elsie(aged 12years), Henry (aged l1), and Eliza (aged 10) , together with Miss Pike embarked on a hired boat, and, getting too near the mouth of the river, were carried out seaward, where the small craft capsized in the surf, and unfortunately Captain Honey, his wife, Mr Wood, his three children, and Miss Pike were drowned Mrs Wood clung to the boat and was rescued The accident was witnessed by some hundreds of people, and Mr Seymour (banker, from Berry), Mr Graham (of this town), and two or three other young men plunged into the water and tried to rescue the party, but the assistance came too late Mr Wood was alive when the rescuers reached him, but they were unable to bring him ashore When the news reached Kiama two or three boats wore despatched, but all the assistance they could render was to search for the bodies, four of which have been recovered, namely, Mr Wood, two of his children, and Miss Pike

Captain Honey, who was 46 years old, was a useful member of the community He was s magistrate and coroner for the district, and one of the vice-presidents of the Kiama Agricultural Association, besides being captain of the volunteers The greatest sympathy felt for Mrs Wood, who by this terrible calamity has boon bereaved of her husband, her three children, and two sisters The coast is being watched for the bodies of Captain Honey, his wife, and one of Mr Wood's children, which are expected to come ashore to- night Mr Alexander, police magistrate of Wollongong, comes here to-morrow morning for the purpose of holding an inquiry into the terrible fatality, which exceeds anything of the kind ever known in the district The boat in this case was a small flat-bottomed one The Sydney Morning Herald 27 December 1893

ORANGE BLOSSOMS. The marriage of Miss Sarah Jones, daughter of Mr Robert Jones, of Eureka, with Mr Alderman James Pike, of “Claremont,” Kiama, was celebrated at the residence of the bride's parents on Wednesday last, the Rev. B. Stephens, of Jamberoo, performing the ceremony. The bride wore a very handsome and becoming dress of light fawn silk, trimmed with insertion, and carried a lovely bouquet of flowers, She was attended by her three sisters, the Misses Minnie, Emily and Lily Jones as bridesmaids, who were all attired in a very neat and handsome manner, and added quite a feature of attraction to the nuptial ceremony. The bride and bride-groom left by the evening train for Newcastle, from whence they were to go to Katoomba, and other places of note in the vicinity, receiving before their departure many expressions of good wishes from friends and relatives. Many will join with us in wishing the newly-wedded couple a long and prosperous career, surrounded by much happiness and comfort.

Death of an Old Illawarra Identity. The death occurred on Sunday at Artarmon, Sydney, of Mrs Ann Parkinson Piper, wife of William Piper. The deceased, who suffered for many months from a lingering complaint, passed away at the advanced age of 77 years. Her maiden name was Gilbert, and prior to her marriage she resided with the Osborne family at Marshall Mount, and was therefore one of the earliest residents. After her marriage to Mr. Wm. Piper, who followed farming pursuits, she had continued her residence until a few years ago, when the family removed to the suburbs. Altogether, she had been identified with Marshall Mount for about half a century. The deceased leaves a husband, five sons and two daughters to mourn their loss, together with a large number of grandchildren. Numerous relatives reside in the Illawarra district.

Mrs. PIPER, Sen.

The death of Mrs. Piper, wife of Mr. James Piper, sen., occurred at Llangothlin on Saturday last, after an illness of about a fortnights do ration. She had been a resident of Llangothlin for about thirty-five years and was held in the highest esteem by all who knew her. The late Mrs. Piper was within a few months of her eightieth year, and, besides her husband, is survived by four son's — Messrs. Herbert, Alfred, James (Llangothlin), and Percy (Sydney), four daughters — Mrs. Geo. Hodder, Mrs. William Hodder, Mrs. W. S. Drysdale (Llangothlin), Mrs. James Starr (Guyra), thirty-four grandchildren, and one great grandchild. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Methodist portion of Guyra Cemetery. The large number of persons present, many coming long distances, was a striking proof of the great respect in which she was held. Guyra Argus (NSW : 1902 - 1954) Thursday 18 August 1921 p 2

The Church Triumphant

Mrs. Piper, a faithful member of our church at Llangothlin, recently passed away. The Piper family have been, the mainstay of the little Llangothlin Church in the Guyong Circuit. This is largely due to the splendid training of a large family by a devoted Christian mother she was born at Avondale, in the Illawarra district, in 1841. Her parents were earnest Christian people. Under, their careful training the deceased early learnt - the way of life. She was married to Mr. James Piper in 1865. After spending a few years in the Berrima district she came to Llangothlin. At the memorial service, the high esteem in which Mrs. Piper and Mrs. Sutcliffe were held was demonstrated in the large congregation that attended. It was with the greatest difficulty that friends Who came to pay their last respects could be accommodated. The tribute paid by the sorrowing family was summed up in one sentence: 'A de voted Christian ' mother. ' The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 5 November 1921 p 14

THE LATE MRS. PIPER In last Thursday's issue there appeared an obituary notice of three old identities connected with this district. The list should have included a fourth departed worthy— the late Mrs. Piper, of Marshall Mount. Alluding again to the other three deaths, Mr. John Dingwall died on Thursday, Mr Walter Wilson and Mrs. Piper on Monday, and Mr. David Haworth on Tuesday. It will therefore be noticed that the death of these four old residents of the district occurred within less than a week, three being within two days, and two actually on one day. The late Mrs. Piper was a native of Sussex, England, where she was born in 1812. In the year 1838 she, in company with her husband (the late Mr. John Piper), reached this colony by the immigrant ship Westminster, and immediately on arrival they came to Marshall Mount, reaching Wollongong by the historic ' Old Billy ' In those days the road even through the town was little more than a bush-track, and that to Dapto and Marshall Mount was still more so. From that time to her death, Mrs. Piper continued a resident of Illawarra, her home, never being farther south than the Macquarie, nor more northward than Mullet Creek. In 1853 her husband died, and from that time she lived a quiet but useful life in the Marshall Mount locality. It was not until within the last fortnight of her existence that she ceased to occupy a house of her own, and became an inmate of her son's residence. The illness which carried her off resulted from a cold which first affected her about two years ago. Her family, to whom she was a kind and good mother, consisted of two sons and two daughters, all respected members of the com-munity. In her quiet life the deceased was respected by all who knew her, and in her last illness many persons to whom she had been kind in the days of her strength acted similarly towards her so far as they could.

m. William Plumridge (abt 1837 Berkshire – Son of Thomas Plumridge & Elizabeth *) 1862 Kiama

There was but one case for trial, and that of such a nature that a portion of the evidence must be necessarily be suppressed.

Thomas Evans was indicted for having on the 1st of June last at Kiama assaulted Jane Plumridge with intent to carnally know her. A second count charged the defendant with an indecent assault . …The Crown Prosecutor having briefly opened the case, and pointed out the difference in the two counts contained ill the indictment, called Jane Plumridge, the prosecutrix, who being sworn, deposed that she was the wife of William Plumridge, and lived about three miles from Kiama she knew the defendant ; about five in the evening on the first of June witness was alone in her house, a mail named James Alchorn who had been there, having gone into the bush to look for horses ; the defendant came up and said ' Who has been talking about Amelia.' (Although not given in evidence it appeared incidentally that Amelia was the name of a woman kept by defendant.) The defendant said that witness' husband was neither a man nor a boy, and he then caught hold of her and said he would try her; his words were, ?' Come on, I'll try you’ witness screamed, and defendant held her by the arm and gave her a good pull ; his person was exposed when he said this; witness screamed a good many times, and defendant went away ; she hit him with a bone before he went ; James Aldchorn came up just as the defendant went away; witness did not tell him exactly what had taken place.

Cross examined : Witness could not tell how long defendant remained, nor which arm he caught hold of; Alchorn came up just as the defendant went away, but she could not remember what she said to him'; when the defendant first arrived he took down the sliprail at the end of the house ; he first asked what, witness had been saying about Amelia, and she replied that she was a disgrace to her sex and all belonging to her ; it was when witness was looking round for her husband that defendant undid his trousers ; witness did not make any complaint to Alchorn of defendant's treatment, but she gave information to the sergeant of police at Kiama ; the case was initiated at the police- office at Kiama ; when the case was called on the first time witness was not present, she was ill with a cold; she said after wards in her evidence that she had pains in her back and legs through wading through the swamp after the defendant ; the woman Amelia that defendant spoke of is a sister of witness' husband; witness saw defendant on the day of the Shellharbor races ; he was riding with another man and Amelia; the defendant stopped, and she asked him ' What he would give to got out of this scratch?' defendant asked what would be enough, and she replied £10 ; defendant said he would see witness hung first before he would give her a penny ; there was no ill feeling on her part on account of the girl Amelia. William James Alchorn deposed that he knew the last witness, and was at her place on the 1st of June; he left to look for horses, and was away about a quarter of an hour ; when returning to the house he heard Mrs. Plumridge screaming and screeching ; he was in the paddock at the time; just as he reached the house he saw the defendant go out at the slip rail; the noise made be prosecutrix was one of distress ; when witness reached the house he asked what was the matter, and she replied that the old scoundrel (meaning the defendant) had been insulting her; the defendant rode briskly towards the house, but he rode quicker away ; defendant was not at the house more than five minutes ; he had a sliprail to take down before reaching the house ; the prosecutrix looked as if she had had a row, and looked angry. This completed the case for the Crown, For the defence. Mr. Rogers called Amelia Ferning, who deposed that she know both the prosecutrix and the defendant ; she remembered the day of the Shellharbor races : witness, the defendant, and another man on that day met prosecutrix on the Kiama road ; prosecutrix called defendant back and said, ' Is this the way you are going to serve me, dragging me to Kiama again ?' She then said, ' What will you give me to got you out of this scratch, will you give me £10 ?' Defendent replied, '£10! for what? I will see you hung before I give you a shilling ;' prosecutrix replied, ' If you won’t give me the money, you can go and got strung up.' Henry Weatherall corroborated a portion of the above conversation, but rode away before it was completed. Mr Rogers then addressed the jury in an able speech for the defendant, pointing …

The jury retired and after an absence of upwards of half an hour, returned into court with a verdict of ' Not guilty.' Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 23 July 1867 p 2

Emily Alice Pollock was charged with the larceny of seven sovereigns and other articles at Balgownie, on December 17th, the property of Samuel Pollock. Mr. Lysaght for the defence.

Constable Grill deposed that on Wednesday he called at the residence of accused ; Mrs. Pollock, at witness' request, showed him the room where the robbery was supposed to have taken place; she said she did not know Samuel Pollock had any money in the box, she had often asked him, but he would never tell her accused also said that during the night, before her husband and nephew (complainant) returned from mine she , had heard someone in the yard, but was too frightened to go out and look ; she said she suspected someone, but would not tell, as she thought the constable was paid to find out.

Another of the old and best known residents of Bulli district, Mrs. Mary Poppitt, has passed away. Although 78 years of age, she had maintained fairly good health and was able to get about very well, but a week prior to her death she was seized with a stroke, which necessitated her being taken to Bulli Hospital, and she never recovered, death taking place in the institution about midnight last Friday. The body was taken to the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Graham, Tyrwhitt Avenue, Bulli, deceased being mother of Mrs. Graham. The funeral which was well attended by people representative of the district, left there at 2 p.m. last Sunday, the body being first taken into St. Augustine's Church of England, where a service was conducted, and afterwards interred in the Church yard, in a grave adjoining that of her husband, late Denis Poppitt, who predeceased her by 17 years. Rev. C. II. Tomlinson officiated in the Church, and. at the graveside. The late Mrs. Poppitt was born in Shropshire (England) and on coming to Australia 45 years ago, at once, settled in Bulli, being married there within a few months after her arrival, and she resided there continuously. Three daughters are left to mourn their loss— Mabel (Mrs. Mark Graham), Ethel (Mrs. H. Treharne, Burwood), Lalla (Mrs. A. A . Treharne (Werris Creek). Deceased was of a bright disposition, and of kindly nature, always ready to help in time of need, and she was of the homely type.

Court of Petty Sessions
Thursday, September 4th, 1862
(before the Mayor, J.W. Wilshire, and R Marshall, J.P’s)

Mrs. Mary Stewart was charged by Mrs. Mary Porter with having committed a violent assault.

By the evidence of the complainant it appeared that Mrs Stewart was a neighbour living on the Keelogues Estate, and on the 28th of August they both met at Mr. Casey’s on Crown-street.

She had been making some purchases, when she found that she was deficient by twopence of money enough to pay for them. The defendant made some remark to the effect that complainant should buy something worthwhile and pay for it. Defendant also gave complainant a kick, and expressed her determination to take the law into her own hands.. The complainant went to the opposite end of the shop, when the defendant followed her and gave her a drive which hurt her very much.

The blow was on the eye, which was blacked very much. Complainant given the defendant no provocation. In addition to the blow the defendant tore the complainants bonnet off her head.

In Cross-examination, the complainant denied having said that the defendant had borrowed money from her without repaying it, or that she had called her an insolvent strumpet. Had never had any quarrel with defendant. Mrs. Ann Casey corroborated the evidence of the complainant as to the assault, and also heard the language alleged by the defendant to have been used. There had been some wrangling between the parties before the assault was committed. The defendant called no witnesses, but in her defence stated that the complainant had been saying things about her of a highly provocative nature.

Fined 1 pound, and ordered to pay costs to Court. Mr. Jones conducted the complainant’s case.

In 1884 she lived at East Kangaloon and had 60 acres - 2 horses, 14 cattle, 1 sheep, 3 pigs. Her husband was not listed so it can be assumed he had died before 1884, however the gravestone of the Matthew Porter who died in 1879 says he was 10 years but the headstone is hard to read so it is assumed this is the correct Matthew Porter.

At 'Rehull ' farm, Figtree, the house of the bride, Mr. John Porter, Mt. Keira, and Miss S. J Thompson were on Wednesday afternoon united in the bonds of wedlock. The sacred ceremony was celebrated by the Rev. J. Gardiner, who had come from Camden for the occasion. The bride was attired in a gown of white silk with chiffon trimmings, wreath and veil; she wore a gold watch and chain, and also brooch, the gift of the bridegroom. The bridesmaid was Miss Bella Clarke, whose dress was of electric blue, with cream trimmings; she also wore a gold brooch, the gift of the bridegroom. Mr. A. Wilson (Cross Roads), was best man, and the bride was given away by Mr. R. Gibson. Afterwards the company, which comprised many relatives and friends, had breakfast, which was laid out beautifully on the verandah. The Rev. J. Gardiner presided. The toast of 'The bride and Bridegroom' was given by Mr. J. Robinson, and supported by Mr. E. O'Neil, each speaking in terms of high appreciation of Mr. and Mrs. Porter. Other toasts were: 'The Bridesmaid' Messrs Alex Wilson and J. Porter; The Hostess, Mrs. E. Gibson by the chairman, 'Our Worthy Chairman' by Messrs. Jas. Porter and M. Robertson. The gathering at the pretty homestead was a very pleasant one in every way. Mr. and Mrs. Porter left during the day for Sydney.

Quite a gloom was cast over Mount Keira on Saturday when is became known that Mrs. John Porter had passed away that morning. She recently underwent an operation at Sydney, but returned home apparently on the road to recovery. On Thursday night she was chatting with some friends and appeared to be in her usual health, but on Friday her condition did not appear satisfactory and the doctor  was called in, and she sank rapidly and passed away as stated. The late Mrs. Porter was a woman of kindly, neighbourly instincts, and her death is mourned by a wide circle of friends. She was born 64 years ago in the county Tyrone, Ireland, and when 14 years of age came to Australia, with Mr. and Mrs. Keys, who took   up their residence in this district, Mrs.  Porter resided at Figtree with the late Mr. and Mrs. Gibson until her marriage. The funeral took place on Sunday, the remains being followed to their last resting place by a large cortege, including representatives from Moss Vale, Robertson and other distant centres. The Rev. Doust officiated at the graveside. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved husband and relatives.Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 17 December 1926 p 4

An inquiry was held at Curry's Hotel, Dapto, yesterday afternoon, into the origin of a fire which occurred on May 17th, in a grocer's shop situated on Main South Coast Road, Dapto, occupied by Mary Ella Powell. The building was one of a block of four, owned by Mr. J. Fielder, who resided at the rear of the premises, and who had the property; insured in the North Queensland office to the extent of £300. Mrs. Powell had her stock and furniture insured in the Australian Mutual Fire Office for £150, and the damage done by the fire amounted to about £15.

Living at Mount Keira in 1903 Electoral Roll- Domestic Duties

OBITUARY-. — We regret the chronicle the sad death of Mrs. Pratt, the wife of George Pratt, of Mount Keira, on Tuesday last, at the age of 65 years. The late Mrs. Pratt has been a resident of Mount Keira over 30 years, being an old identity. She had won the affection of the whole neighbourhood, as she had always given her very best assistance at all times to the sick and afflicted, and could always be relied upon to render help at any hour, day or night. She was of a kind, gentle, and loving disposition, and will be greatly missed, throughout the whole community. She leaves a husband, and grown-up family, consisting of seven daughters, and two sons, all of whom are married, with the exception of one son, to mourn the loss of a loving mother. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 14 May 1915 p 2

The death occurred here on Tues day morning last of Mrs. George Pratt, senr., at the age of sixty-six years. For the past thirty years, Mrs. Pratt has acted in the capacity of a nurse, and there is scarcely a house at Mount Keira which she, at one time or another, has not been into in the hour of trouble. Any hour of the day or night she never failed to respond to a call to the bedside of any resident who happened to be ill and by her kindness in that direction she was well known to the inhabitants as 'The 'Angel of Mercy.' She leaves a husband, seven daughters and two sons to mourn their loss, for all of whom widespread sympathy has been expressed.

On last Saturday another was added to the number by the removal of Mrs Price, relict of the late Mr Charles Price, of Kiama, at the age of 68 years. The deceased was a native of Sydney. At the age of about 28 years she came to reside in this district with her husband. For several years they resided in Kiama, and then removed to Jamberoo.

Subsequently they returned to Kiama, where they spent the remaining years of life.

Some four years ago Mrs Price had the misfortune to lose her husband, who passed to his rest after a protracted period of illness. The deceased throughout life enjoyed what might be termed a characteristic of most of the old settlers — a strong constitution ; her health was always good. About a fortnight ago, however, she caught a cold, which developed into bronchitis. All that available medical skill could do with the best nursing, to prolong life was done, but it became evident, a few days before the end that her life was drawing to its close. On Saturday, shortly before morning broke, she passed to her rest. The deceased was a true friend, a devoted mother, and respected by all who was acquainted with her. She leaves behind three sons and three daughters to mourn their loss. The funeral, which took place on Sunday, was largely attended. Prior to the remains being removed from her late residence, service was conducted by the Rev. Herbert Guinness, of whose church the deceased was a member ; and at the grave, in the Church of England cemetery in Jamberoo by the Rev. B. Stevens, the remains being interred beside those of her husband and two sons. The deceased lady was the mother of Mrs James Clarke, of Milton.

A Peculiar Marriage.—George Price was charged in the Newtown Police Court on Wednesday with having deserted his wife. Mrs. Price gave evidence to the effect that they were married in her father's house, situated near Mudgee, over 12 months ago, and accused left her the same night. Mr. Wallace who appeared for the defence, contended that there was no desertion at all, as a letter was signed by both parties signifying their intention to separate at once. The marriage was rather a peculiar one. Mrs. Price stated that she did not know the contents of the letter when she signed it, and she was under her father's control. Mr. O'Malley Clarke said that under the circumstances he could not make an order.

Former Resident's Death In Sydney

Well remembered as a resident of Hermitage Flat, where she lived in Stephenson-street, Mrs. Alice Prior died at the home of her daughter, Northmead, Parramatta, a few days ago.

The late Mrs. Prior, who was born at Milton, on the South Coast, was 87 years of age and had lived in Lithgow for 20 years.

Her husband, the late Mr. Tom Prior, predeceased her 15 years ago. He was a miner at Hermitage colliery. As a point of interest the late Mr. Prior, who had spent all his active life in the coal mines, was one of the few survivors of the Mt. Kembla colliery disaster in which up to 100 men lost their lives earlier this century.

The late Mrs. Prior, who was connected with the Seventh Day Adventist Church, was interred at Rookwood.

She is survived by three daughters and three sons to whom sympathy will be extended. They are Mrs. J. Marsland of Davey-street, Hermitage Flat, Mrs. A. Pearman, of McKellars Park, Mrs. L. Carter, Fletcher-street, Northmead, Messrs. Alf and Bill Prior, of Sydney, and Mr. Murray Prior, of Wollongong. Lithgow Mercury (NSW : 1898 - 1954) Thursday 14 October 1954 p 1

In the Divorce Court, on Wednesday last, Elizabeth Prior, formerly, Head, petitioned for a judicial separation from Edwin Prior on the ground of cruelty Mr. E. A. Beeby appeared for petitioner. According to the petitioner's statement, the parties were married in December, 1888 at Wollongong, according to the rites of the Church of England. She was 17 years old at the time.

After the birth of their first child her husband commenced a course of cruelty, and would leave her for weeks at a time -while he went away shooting. Owing to his neglect the child died. There were four other children of the marriage. Respondent had threatened to shoot her, and had struck her and thrown things at her.

She left home later on account of a charge of misconduct which was made against her by respondent.— His Honor dismissed the petition, holding that the evidence of cruelty was insufficient. To grant the petition on such evidence as was given would be prejudicial to the public interest and tend to the relaxation of the marriage tie.

The passing of Mrs. Henrietta Prior in the early hours of this morning will be felt by the many friends she had made during her 37 years as a resident of this locality. The late Mrs. had reached the age of 74 years, and had lived at her residence at Combo for the past 21 years. She was pre-deceased by her husband by five years. The deceased had taken an active interest in the affairs of the Church of England during her long residence here, and was a member of the Women's Guild and the Mothers' Union, although her ailing during the past two years had kept her from being an active participant in these affairs. The late Mrs. Prior is survived by a family of four daughters and three sons, namely, Mesdames P. Watts (Newcastle) ,C. Dennis (Singleton), J. Bates (Singleton), Miss V. Prior (Singleton), Messrs. Albert (Singleton), Albion (Singleton), and Ernest (Parramatta).

We regret to announce the death of Mrs. Jane Prior, relict of the late Mr, Edward Prior, of Yellow Rock, Albion Park. The sad news reached Albion Park last Saturday, and a gloom was cast over the residents, at the passing of one who was held in the highest respect throughout this district. The late Mrs. Prior was born at Dapto 88 , years ago, and was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Smith. Her husband predeceased her 28 years ago. With her husband she lived at Yellow Rock for over 50 years, and reared a large family. About 14 years ago she left Albion Park and lived with her daughter, Mrs. Herb Gower, of Sydney, and continued in apparently good health until she was seized with a stroke about nine days before her death. Her sisters were the late Mrs, McPhail and Mrs. Harris, and her brother, the late Mr. William Smith, all of Dapto. Mrs. Prior reared a large family, William (Sydney), James (Newcastle), Edward (Albion Park), Harold (Sydney), Percy (deceased), being sons, and her daughters were Mrs. I Gower (Coramba), Mrs. Herb Gower (Sydney), and Mrs Dawes (deceased). The remains were interred in the Albion Park Church of England Cemetery, on Sunday last, when a large number congregated to pay their last respects to a lady who was admired by all with whom she came into contact.

Charles Fleming, a married man with four children, was killed by a fall of rock, in the Brilliant Central mine at Charters Towers. Darling Downs Gazette (Qld. : 1881 - 1922) Wednesday 17 June 1896 p 1


The death has to be recorded of William Jack, who recently sustained terrible injuries by stone falling on him, in the Woonona pit, and who was taken to the hospital. An inquest was held at which a verdict of accidental death was returned. Mr. Jack had been some 11 years in the district, the earlier part at Kembla, and was much respected.

He was interred in the Presbyterian cemetery. He leaves a widow and a family of three. His widow had the sad experience of losing a first husband by an accident in a mine at Charters Towers. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Saturday 12 October 1901 p 11

Mrs. Pritchard, who has been married three times, sustained concussion of the spine, and no hopes are entertained of her recovery. Her late husband, Mr. William Jacks, died of a broken spine sustained in the Woonona mine about ten years ago, and her first husband, Mr. Fleming, was killed in an accident. Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940) Saturday 9 May 1908 p 4

She and her husband John were awarded damages in 1908 for “a concussion of the spine’ received when a coach and there Bellambi Coal Company train collided. She had paralysis in her right leg after her back injury.

Shortly before 4 o'clock this morning a fire was discovered in a large two-story weatherboard building, containing 15 rooms, and known as the Black Diamond Hotel, situated in Old Bulli. The flames spread rapidly to an adjoining hall, used as an assembly room, and attached to the hotel. Both buildings are owned by Mr. C. H. Wilson, of Pyrmont. The hotel has for some time been un-occupied. All hope was abandoned of saving either of the properties, the flames soon having complete mastery of the buildings, and both were entirely consumed by the flames. Attention was at once directed to a row of cottages adjoining the burning buildings, and through the splendid efforts of the townspeople, aided by a good supply of water from an adjoining well, the cottages were saved, with the exception of one, occupied by a widow, Mrs. Kluss, which was considerably damaged, having the gable end completely burned out, and the roof damaged. Several sheds and out-buildings on the hotel premises were entirely consumed by the flames. An old sawmill, used by the Bulli Coal Company as a workshop, which contained a number of valuable coal-skips, caught fire several times, but, with the strenuous efforts of the crowd present, the flames were subdued. The origin of the fire is at present a mystery, but of late a number of men in search of work have passed through Bulli, and have been known to camp in the building. But the police state that when going through the building shortly before midnight the same night the place was empty. The buildings destroyed are supposed to be insured, but in what office or for what amount is not known. An inquest will be held.The Sydney Morning Herald 29 March 1893

Mrs Kluss was charged with violent assault, but due to witnesses she was charged with setting a fire in the bush without giving notice as required.Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 13 December 1870 p 2

Obituary (part) “Kiama Independent” – “We refer to the demise of Mrs. G. Prott, Snr. which occurred on Friday last. Mrs. Prott had entered her 79th year being born in Germany in 1824. In 1855 with her husband and several children she journeyed to Australasian shores and reaching Sydney proceeded straight to the Kiama district where she has since resided. Strangers in a strange land, Mr. and Mrs. Prott had many difficulties to overcome, chief among which was the learning of the language, but before long the worthy couple overcame this and settled down to be honoured members of the community. Mrs. Prott was of a kind, motherly disposition and many will remember her skill in nursing the sick and distressed also her many acts of charity and assistance in a quiet way in church and other matters.

Obituary. Mrs Prott The Kiama Independent reports the death, . of an old and respected resident of nearly half a century's standing, in the person of Mrs G Prott,, sen. (relict of the late Mr G. Prott) The death occurred on Friday evening last, from senile decay. The Shoalhaven Telegraph (NSW : 1879 - 1937) Wednesday 25 February 1903 p 6

Ruth Langdon, a girl about fifteen years of age, appeared on summons, issued at the in- stance of James Matthew Nolan, M.D., whose information set forth that he had good reasons for, and did suspect, the defendant of stealing two gold shirt studs, set with rubies, his property, sometime between the 30th of September and the 7th of October last. Mr. Owenn, who conducted the case for defendant, submitted the information was invalid, inasmuch as it did not contain any definite charge; suspicion was not a recognised charge in such a case, and if the plaintiff suspected defendant of stealing his property, he should have taken out a search warrant; then, if the property had been found in her possession, the definite charge of stealing might have been laid. The Bench holding the information good, the case proceeded. Dr. Nolan being sworn, said the defendant had been in his service for about fifteen months and left at her father's wish the latter end of October last; on the 7th October; he missed two (of a set of three) gold studs with rubies in the centre, similar to the one produced which he valued at £2; he learned that Mrs, Prott, who was working at his house on the 30th September, took the missing studs from a shirt and gave them to defendant; he had made a strict search all over the house for them in vain; he had repeatedly questioned   defendant about them, who said she had no recollection of the circumstance, and if she said Mrs. Prott did not give to her she might be stating an untruth. Cross-examined by Mr. Owen: He did not, of his own knowledge, know that defendant stole them; he could not swear they were not in his own house, though he had searched and could not find them; he had missed other things, and suspected defendant of taking them; he wore the studs occasionally; the last time was the day after the Governor's visit; he once suspected defendant of stealing a brooch, which was afterwards found in a drawer that had been previously searched; his charge was based on report only; Mrs. Prott told him she gave the studs to defendant: she remained in his service three weeks afterwards; he did not get to search warrant. Mary M, Prott, wife of George Prott, deposed: On the 30th September last, she was washing at Dr. Nolan's; she observed two “pretty buttons ” on a shirt in the wash tub, and pointed them out to defendant, then a servant at Dr. Nolan's; defendant asked if they were gold, and she replied she did not know, they might, or they might only be washed: she took them from the wet shirt and gave them to defendant, who went toward the house with them; being in the shed she did not see her go into the house: a week afterwards she heard the studs were missing, and being inquired of she made the same statement to Dr. Nolan; defendant told Dr. Nolan in her presence that if she (witness) did give her the studs, she did not remember. To Mr, Owen: A servant boy was living in the house at the same time. The defendant electing to be summarily dealt with. Mr. Owen addressed the court, contending that not a little of evidence had been adduced calculated, in the slightest degree, to criminate his client. Employers ought to be very careful how they injure the reputation of their servants by such flimsy charges. According to Mrs. Prott's evidence, a week had elapsed from the time she gave the studs to defendant to the time when then they were missed, which might have happened in a hundred ways. It might be they were mislaid, or like the brooch still in the house. However, it ought to be proved that his client was the thief before they could convict her; and he was quite sure no such proof had been brought forward; consequently the charge should be dismissed. This view was held by Mr. Black, but Mr, Fry could not see his way clearly in dismissal, because the missing studs had been clearly traced to the possession of defendant, who failed to give a satisfactory account of what she did with them. The Bench being equally divided could not agree, and the defendant was discharged. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Thursday 12 November 1868

Emma Mott who was the daughter of the mining disaster heroine Mrs Mott (see Hobbs for the article about her actions during the Mt Kembla Mine disaster). Lizzie Proud, who was 3 years old when her mother died, had very little memory of growing up in the district other than touching her mother’s toes when she was brought into the room where she was lying on the bed. She remembered they were very cold and that was the only memory she had of her mother. She recalled the place where she was lying was like a hut, a basic shelter and not like a house. She was not sure if she was combining memories or that they had lived in this rough sawn timber hut.

After her mother’s death Lizzie’s father 'gave' her to a maiden aunt, Aunt Emma. Lizzie hated Aunt Emma, who lived in or around Sydney. Family oral history stated that Lizzie Proud seldom talked about her Aunt Emma but she did say that she was treated like a servant and often reminded she was fortunate to be provided with a roof over her head.

A marriage under what may be fitly termed auspicious circumstances took place on Monday evening last at St. Francis Xavier's Church, the contracting parties being both well-known residents of the vicinity, Mr. J. F. Pugh and Miss Maggie Smith, daughter of Mr. William Smith, of Balgownie. The Rev. Father Byrne tied the nuptial knot. Mr. Pugh, with his best man Mr John Ryan arrived at the church first, and shortly afterwards the bride’s party arrived, the usual procession being formed from the church, where the bride groom awaited them at the altar. The bride looked very handsome in grey silk and crepon, and her bridesmaid in heliotrope silk. After the ceremony and succeeding congratulations the party repaired to the house of the bride's parents, where the wedding feast was partaken of amid many heartily expressed wishes for the happiness and prosperity of the newly mated pair. Mr. and Mrs. Pugh left for a short honeymoon by the late train to Sydney. A gay and festive few rendezvoused at the Wollongong railway station at 9 p.m. on rice and old shoe-throwing intent, but they were 'sold,' as their intended victims drove quietly to Para Meadow platform.

m. Robert Purcell (Limerick -14/2/1845 Wollongong) unmarried?

At Wollongong, on Friday, the 14th instant, at the Residence of Mr. Matthew Ryan, Mr. Robert Purcell, late Sheriff's Officer, formerly of the City of Limerick. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Wednesday 26 February 1845 p 3


This was an action by Patrick M'Cormack, suing in forma papers, against Harriet Purcell, the executrix of Robert Purcell, deceased, to recover a sum of £80, for wages, falling due to him from the said Robert Purcell, during the lifetime of the latter. To this the defendant had pleaded, first, that the said Robert Purcell was never indebted to the plaintiff; secondly, that she had never been administratrix modo di forma ; and, thirdly, that she had administered all Purcell's effects.

Mr. DAUVALL. appeared for the plaintiff, and the Solicitor-General for the defence.

It appeared at the outset that there was an error in the declaration, the defendant being sued as administratix instead of executrix de son tort ; and Mr. DAUVALL, applied for leave to amend. This was opposed by the SOLCITOR GENERAL, upon the ground, that having prepared to rely upon this point, the amendment would be unjust to the defendant His HONOR, however, allowed the amendment applied for, being of opinion that it was not of a nature to prejudice the defendant so far as to prevent the setting up of a meritorious defence.

The evidence for the plaintiff was then proceeded with, and it was proved that he had been engaged by Purcell as a labourer, at the rate of £20 a-year, and rations; and that in August, 1844, a sum of £35 was acknowledged to be due. It was also shown that the defendant had been living with Purcell, as his wife, up to the time of his death, and that the furniture in Purcell's house was removed shortly before his death to various places, under the orders of the defendant ; but it also appeared that at the time this was done some execution or other process was expected to issue from the Court of Requests. It was shown that Purcell had a farm at Wollongong, and possessed some horses and a quantity of wheat, at the time of his death. After Purcell's death, the defendant came to reside at the farm, from which the wheat was removed and sold, a portion of the proceeds being laid out to purchase stores and necessaries for the farm, and the residue paid over as wages to the man who sold it (he being a hired servant employed on the farm.) It was also shown that sundry furniture had been removed by the defendant's order, after Purcell's death, the deceased having sanctioned the removal of the same in his life-time. It was also stated, in cross-examination, that it was currently reported that the deceased had another wife living in Britain.

The plaintiffs case being closed, the SOLCITOR GENERAL moved for a non-suit on the following grounds : first, that the amendment of the declaration had been wrongly ordered by the Court ; second, that no evidence had been adduced to show that the defendant was administratrix ; third, it had not been shown that she was chargeable as an executrix ; fourth, there was nothing to show that she had intermeddled with the effects of the deceased in such a way as to render her liable to pay his debts ; fifth, it had not been proved that the property alleged to have been intermeddled with was that of the deceased at the time of his death.

His HONOR considered that it was a matter to go to the Jury, to ascertain whether the defendant had been married to the deceased, and if not, whether the property intermeddled with belonged to her or the deceased.

The SOLCITOR GENERAL then briefly addressed the Jury for the defence contending that there was no evidence to show that she had intended in any such way as to render her liable

Offence on Imbecile Girl


At Bulli Court last Friday* Thomas J. Davis (19) was charged with a serious offence against a girl, knowing her to be an imbecile.

He was committed for trial by Mr. J. A. S. Balmain, S.M. Det. Const. Debney, of Wollongong, stated on March 16th he saw the defendant at his home in Mountain Avenue, Woonona. Witness asked 'Do you know a girl called Joyce Adelaide Davies, who lives with her grandmother, Mrs. Purnell, in Pope's Lane?' Davis replied 'I know her as Joyce Purnell.' Witness asked 'Do you know that she gave birth to a male child on March 4th.' Witness replied 'Yes.' Witness said 'It is alleged you are the father of that child and I am going to question you.'

Witness then asked 'Do you know that this girl is not of normal mentality?' and he replied 'I know she can't talk but she seems ail right apart from that.' Davis added he had known the girl all his life, but he had never known her to speak. Asked if he had ever had improper relations withi her, he replied once, about June last year. It was at her home while her grandmother was away at a funeral. 'No one else was home with her that day,' he added. Asked if he believed he was the father of the child, Davis replied 'I do, and I have paid all expenses.'

Davis was then taken to Bulli Police Station where he was asked if he was prepared to make a written statement. Davis dictated the statement Which was written by witness.

In this alleged statement, Davis said the only thing that appeared wrong with the girl was that she could not speak. On that day in June when he went to the house, Mrs. Purnell who was going to a funeral, asked him to mind the house. After the old lady had gone they went into the bedroom and here it was that the incident occurred Witness said when Davis was charged he made no reply. Dr. C. f. Palmer, of Bulli, said he knew the girl Joyce Davies About three years ago he issued a certificate certifying that she was an imbecile. On the morning of the court he again saw the girL at his surgery and she was still an imbecile. Her appearance was abnormal and her condition would undoubtedly be apparent to persons other than the medical profession.

To Mr. Mclnerney, who appeared for the defendant, witness said the examination three years ago, was made in connection with an invalid pension. During the whole time he had known her she had lived with her grandmother. Her condition had always been abnormal.

Apart from words, she can signify assent or dissent? — I think she could at times.

To a child of what age would you compare her mentality, or isn't itcomparable? — I think it would compare with a child of not more than 10. In fact I think a normal child of 10 would have far more sense.

Dr. R. A. Cook, of Bulli, said he had known the girl for about seven months, during which time he had visited her professionally about every fortnight to a month. He attended her during the confinement.

She was of very low mentally, being an imbecile, almost an idiot. Her mentality should have been apparent to any intelligent persons and her actions were those of an imbecile. He had never heard her speak She only made signs.

In answer to Mr. Mclnerney, witness said as far as could be ascertained the baby was normal. At present it was in a children's home.

The mother was very ill following the birth and nearly died and her, physical condition since was not good. Her mentality was that of a child, 6 to 8 years.

Mrs. Martha Elizabeth Purnell, 69 years-old widow, residing at Pope's Lane, Woonona, said Joyce Davies,her grand-daughter, had always resided with her. When the child was 2 years of age she suffered from meningitis and since then had been unable to speak.

The girl was able to understand anything witness told her and if she was told not to do anything, she would not do it. The only words she could say were 'Ta ' Ta.'

Witness said she knew Thomas Davis.. He lived not far from her place.

At this .stage the S.M. remarked to Mr. Mclnerney 'I think it would be advisable if you told your client it would be much better if he did not chew or smile during the hearing. It is a serious case.'

Continuing witness said her husband died in Feb., 1938 and both before and after his death, Davis was a regular visitor.

'He was very good and kind to us,' said witness.

One Saturday in June last Davis came over to the house. She told him she was going to a funeral and asked him to keep an eye on the house. He was sitting on the door' step at the time and her grand daughter was asleep on the front verandah. Witness then left for the funeral returning ihome about 5 o'clock. The girl was on the bed and Davis was sitting at the fire in the kitchen. He had made up the fire and had the kettle boiling and stayed for tea. He then left, saying he was going to the pictures.

It was about November that she told him she thought Joyce was in trouble. He seemed dumb-founded and when she remarked she did not know how she would get on with all the expense, he said 'I'll help you through.' She told him it would cost a lot of money, and Davis had now paid her pretty well all of the …which it cost.

Witness said the girl's mother was still alive, but witness did not know where she was now. She had taken the child when she was born and had kept her ever since. The girl was 19 years of age and had never attended school.

The S.M. : Does she ever play I with other children? — Sometimes with the other little grandchildren,

Witness, in answer to Mr. Mclnerney said she and the grand-daughter lived alone in the house since the death of her husband. The girl was never left in ; the house alone except when she was asleep. On these occasions witness used to padlock the door, but she was never away for very long.

She knew when you made mis takes in knitting and pointed these out? — Yes.

Davis, who reserved his defence, was committed for trial at Wollongong Quarter Sessions on May 8th. ' Bail was fixed at self and surety of £100. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 21 April 1939 Page 8

Important Compensation Decision Recalled

The death last month of Mrs. Wilhelmina Pye, widow of the late Jacob Pye, of Old Farm Road, Helensburgh, recalls the important Privy Council decision on “dust” claims by miners.

Mrs. Pye, who was in her 80th year, died at the Coledale Hospital.

Her husband, the late Jacob Pye, who by an unusual co-incidence was also in his 80th year when he died on April 24th, 1947 was the applicant in the case which made legal history.

It lasted only a few weeks short of four years. Pye, a miner at the Metropolitan Colliery, ceased work on April 26th, 1932 through incapacity and then in November that year a Medical Board examination reported him fit for light work but not in a mine.

They found that Mr. Pye was suffering from a partially incapacitating pulmonary fibrosis, which could have been due to coal dust.

He applied to the Workers Compensation Commission and on May 12th, 1933 he was awarded 35/- weekly from April 26th. 1932.

At that hearing the respondents raised the point that Pye was not entitled to compensattion if his incapacity was due to silica dust.

They contended the onus of disproving this rested on the apiplicant and that he, having failed to establish that it was not a disease due to silica dust, therefore must fail to his Claim.

For the applicant it was argued that Pye had been incapacitated by an “employment injury” and that if the employer wished to rely on the fact that it was a silica dust disease, the employer must prove it.

This raised a major question as it was almost impossible for either side to prove or disprove whether silica dust was the cause.

Judge Perdriau upheld the applicant's submission and awarded compensation.

On appeal to the Full Court, the respondent company was successful, by a majority of 2-1, Mr. Justice Halse Rogers and Mr. Justice James giving a decision for the company and Mr. Justice Harvey for Pye.

However, the Miners Federation decided to take the matter further, as at that time incidence of dust was beginning to become very apparent and it was realised that this point must be settled.

The High Court, by a majority decision, upheld the Federation contention that it was for the company to prove that incapacity was due to silica dust.

Justices Evatt (now leader of the Labour party in Federal Government) Rich and McTiernan gave judgments in favour of Pye and the late Chief Justice Gavin Duffy and Justice Starke presented a minority judgment.

The Company then obtained special leave to apply to the Privy Council and it came before that Tribunal on March 27th, 1936, almost four years later.

The Privy Council dismissed the company's appeal and confirmed the order made by Judge Perdriau. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954)Thursday 6 November 1952 - Page 6
