The sincere sympathy of the community will be extended to the relatives of the late Mrs. Mary Jane Raftery in her sudden and untimely death, which took place at Gosford on Monday morning last. Mrs. Raftery, who had been a resident of Dapto, had been on a visit to her brother, Mr. Harold Edmondson, of Mann Street, for a few days only. On Monday morning she decided to take a short walk before breakfast, and when in Dwyer Street, near the residence of Mr. A. J. Delandre, she suddenly collapsed and died from heart failure.

Her condition was discovered by Mr. Delandre, but although medical assistance was summoned she was beyond human aid. The late Mrs. Raftery, who was 51 years of age, leaves a sorrowing husband and four children, three sons and one daughter. The body was taken by train on Tuesday morning to Dapto, where it was allowed to rest in the Roman Catholic Church till 1 p.m. yesterday, when the funeral took place to the Roman Catholic cemetery at West Dapto.

Julia Rane Rauch
(By U. K. W.)

She was a mother of soldiers. One was lost to her during the war and the other only a very little while after his home-coming.

How many can understand the feelings of a war mother? She has sanctuaries of grief into which none may follow her. Outwardly the compassionate touch of time comforts her, but her inner being and her patient eyes are haunted by thoughts that are hers alone; almost daily some memory tears open the healing scar which refuses to be obliterated, and from which there is no comfort from anodynes.

This mother was a physical part of her lost soldier sons, and her sons were a physical part of the mother who had brought them into this light. If we could only realise the in most horror that war afflicts on the mother's whole being, we would outlaw it, despite the cry of unthinking opportunists, outlaw it as the utmost desecration and inhumanity of humanity. Julia Rane Rauch was a war mother a mother whose trembling fingers knew what it was to open the death telegram. The memory of the world is human and so, short lived.

But how can the world bear the thought of doing to another generation of mothers what was done to the war generation? If the prayers of mothers could melt the hard hearts of men, there would be no more wars; but men are human ambitious and so . . . Julia Rane Rauch was a war mother. As the son of another war mother, I can realise and appreciate. The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser (NSW : 1891 - 1937) Saturday 3 February 1934 p 3

Death from Tetanus, — We regret to have to state that Mr William Rawnsley who had his leg broken on the Mount Keira Tramway, about a fortnight since, died at his residence yesterday, from tetanus, resulting from the accident Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 9 December 1870 p 2

He then called and examined Mrs Rawnsley, who deposed that she was a widow, and the mother of the defendant. She did not authorise her son, in July last, nor at any other time, by order or otherwise, to get a coat from Mr Jones. She did not draw the order produced in Court, and knew nothing about it. Defendant did not ask her for permission to draw an order for goods. If he had done so, she might perhaps have allowed him. By the Bench : She could write her own name, and always signed it Rebecca Rawnsley, not Mrs Wm. Rawnsley. Defendant had repeatedly written letters for her, but she was not aware how he signed them. She could not do much more than write her name. She never authorised him to write orders for her; the only things he wrote for her were letters of business. The Christian name of her late husband was William Rawnsley. By Mr. Richard Waring, defendant's attorney: It was well known in town that her husband was dead; he died after an accident some time ago. Her son had done some business for her since the death of her husband, and she frequently consulted him in such matters. She believed her son got a coat from Mr. Jones, but he took it to some other place and did not take it home. He lived in the house with her when he was not at work. He was 23 years of age last birthday, and was not an idle boy. Mr. Jones went to her and asked if she had authorised her son to get goods from him, and she told him she had not. Her son did not tell her he had obtained the goods, but after she had seen Mr. Jones she spoke to him about it, and told him to take the coat back, as he had no money to pay for it. She believed he sent the coat back afterwards. He had not earned anything for a long time, and had not enough to support himself without her assistance. Edward Arthur Jones, said he was a storekeeper, in the town of Wollongong. Defendant called at his store about last Monday week, and presented the order produced, and which read as follows :-Wollongong, July 31, 1871. Mr. Jones,— SIR,—You will oblige me by letting the bearer have a coat or anything he wants, and also measure him for a suit of colonial tweed, at my expense. I will pay for the above when the suit is made. MRS. WM. RAWNSLEY.” He (witness) gave him the coat (produced), which was of the value of £1 1s, and measured him for the suit of colonial tweed, as requested in the order. He would have also given him anything else on the faith of the order. He tied the coat up in the usual way, and defendant took it away with him. In consequence of something he (witness) heard afterwards, he went to defendant's mother and asked her about the order. She told him she did not authorise defendant to draw such order, and that she knew nothing about it. He then wrote a letter to defendant to the Public School, demanding back the coat or the price of it at once. In about a week (after the goods were ordered) the coat was brought back to his store by a little girl. Defendant had the coat in his possession about a week. After he had spoken to Mrs Rawnsley defendant sent him a letter (produced) about the matter, which was as follows: “Wollongong, August 3rd, 1871. ” Mr. Jones, — “SIR,—I hear that you have been down to our house about the clothes I ordered, but if I have done anything wrong, I am very sorry for it. As I want the suit I ordered, you will please to make it, and when it is made I will pay you for it, and the coat before it leaves the shop, which will set all 'fars ' aside, or if not you can have the coat back again, as it has not been worn, but I would like to keep it. “John Rawnsley.” He (witness) did not think the coat had been worn while defendant had it. When defendant ordered the suit he said he would call for it on a day named, as he was passing to School. He did not do so, however. He believed defendant was a teacher in the Public School at the time. He would not have given him the goods without the order. By the Bench: It was Senior-Sergeant Sheridan who commenced the prosecution in the case. That officer came to his (witness) place, asking him if he had lost a black cloth coat, as he was aware of a house where such had been left in a very strange manner some days before by a person of whom he (Sergeant Sheridan) had not a very good opinion. After some time, he mentioned defendant's name in a confidential way, and then he (witness) and Mrs Jones told Mr. Sheridan all about the matter. The Sergeant then asked to see the documents, and the coat, and having examined them, he requested to get them into his possession to proceed against defendant, in the interest of the public, for obtaining goods under false pretences. He (witness) would have allowed the matter to drop when he got the coat back. It was the Sergeant who commenced the prosecution. Their Worships retired for about twenty minutes, and on their return they committed defendant for trial at the next Quarter Sessions, to be held on the 19th of September, bail being allowed, defendant in the sum of £5, and two sureties in £2 10s each. The Bench remarked that they made the amount of bail low, so as to give defendant an opportunity of obtaining sureties. The witnesses in the case were also bound over in the sum of £5 each to appear to give evidence in the case at the Quarter Sessions. llawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 18 August 1871 p 2

A Girl Drowned.

An inquest was held at the residence of Mr. W. Rawnsley, Flinders-street, on Saturday afternoon, by the Coroner, Mr. C. C. Russell, touching the death of Elizabeth Townsend Rawnsley. Dr. Kerr deposed I was called this morning at 11 o'clock to visit the house of William Rawnsley. I drove up rapidly and saw the deceased. She was lying on the ground in a small paddock behind the residence of her father. The body was naked, but covered with a blanket, with a pillow under her head, and Mr. John Clarke was performing artificial respiration. I examined the body hurriedly, and then gave the opinion that life was extinct. I persevered with artificial respiration for three quarters of an hour in hopes of bringing the child to. No signs of animation appeared, but the symptoms of death became quite pronounced. I therefore discontinued my efforts. The deceased was lying close by a dirty waterhole in the paddock. There was some sandy mud in her nostrils and on her fingers. There was a slight abrasion of the skin in front of the chest, which probably arose from turning the body on its face on the grass in the efforts to restore animation. During the treatment a large quantity of dirty water came from the mouth and nostrils. From the symptoms noted I concluded that the deceased had met her death by drowning. Mr. Clarke's method of performing artificial respiration was perfectly correct.

Rosanna Rawnsley deposed : I am the wife of Wm. Rawnsley, of Wollongong, miner. The deceased is our daughter, Elizabeth Townsend Rawnsley. She is 10 years of age. I saw the deceased last alive some time between 10 and 11 o'clock this morning, When I missed her I went out after her to the paddock at the back of the house. She had not been well, and I was looking after her all the morning. When I went out I saw my son Arthur with Elizabeth’s hat in his hand. He told me he had picked it up out of the water. He further said : ' She has gone down to the bottom now.' I ran down to the water-hole but saw nothing. I sang out and then I fainted. When I came to I was on the children's bed in my own house, it was an hour or two afterwards before I saw the body. The deceased was subject to convulsion fits. She had a fit this morning before breakfast. The children are in the habit of playing at this hole. It is deep in the middle. I always considered it dangerous and tried to fill it up myself, but sometimes there were horses and cattle in this place. The fits used to last sometimes all day off and on. They came on quite suddenly. When a fit came on the child used to fall. She fell off a fence yesterday in one of these fits….The jury returned a verdict to the effect that deceased met her death by being accidently drowned.

QUARTERMAN—May 10th, at his residence, Norton-street, Glebe, Mr. Isaac Quarterman, in the thirty-seventh year of his age, leaving a wife and one child to mourn their loss ; much respected by all who knew him.

Robert's Rotten Luck.

He Came to Town. And Got Gloriously Drunk

At the Glebe Police Court on Tuesday, before Mr. Payten, S.M., Martha Raymond of Campbell-street, Glebe, proceeded against her husband, William Robert Raymond, a miner, of Cole Dale, near Bulli, for maintenance. Mr. Levien appeared for the complainant, and Mr, Lyons for defendant

Complainant, a motherly looking old lady, deposed that she had been married a couple of years. They had both been married previously, and each had contributions towards what should have been, but wasn't, a united and happy family. Martha's trouble was that she wouldn't live in a two roomed hut at Helensburg with her hubby and his eldest son. In October, 1903, she came to Sydney and had


from him until September 21 last. He then came to town, and asked if she had any old rags to give him. She wanted to know what they were required for, and he said he would tell her if she promised not to let the children know.

She would not promise, and he then said, if she wanted to know so badly, he had- and he paused in speech and clashed the palms of his hands together vigorously several times “And what the divvil might that be?”' she inquired, and he then said, 'Oh, well. I've got the __.'

She cross-examined him as to how he encountered such a calamity down in the coal mining regions, and he said that, to tell the truth it wasn't the coal mines at all that did it ; that he came to town

Got gloriously drunk.

and next morning awoke in a strange house to find an old trollop breathing fumes of rum and eschalots into his earhole. He fled from the recumbent Venus, and had since been purchasing oils, ointments, medicines, pills, and surgical implements to erase the memory of that temptress from his heart, etc. Witness listened to his tale, and then said she believed he got the complaint off the girl with whom he lived before marrying respectably the second time. He denied it.

He earned about £3 per week, and as she could not live with him owing to his disgusting language and habits, she asked for an order for £1 per week.

Various medicines and powders were produced by complainant in support of her account of her husband's condition.

For the defence, defendant said that although his wife .


he had supported her in Sydney; She left him because she said the country air did not agree with her. In September last, when he came to Sydney, she turned him out of the house, which she said was her son's. Her story of his suffering was untrue. All that was the matter with him was a sprain, for which he was being treated by Dr. Dixon, of Bulli. He offered to provide a proper house for her, but she refused it.

An order was made for 15s per week, with £2 7s l0d costs. Truth (Sydney, NSW : 1894 - 1954) Sunday 20 November 1904 p 3

A letter in defence of a slighted ‘sister’ see The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 29 September 1876 p 2

OBITUARY.-It was our intention to have noticed, under this head, the death of the late Mrs. J. Redford, of this town, in our last issue, but owing t to the short time intervening between the sad event on Thursday last and our going to press, we were unable to do so. Mrs. Redford, who had attained her sixty-fifth year, was the youngest daughter of the late Rev. William Thorp, of Bristol, England, who in his day was regarded as only second to the Rev. Robert Hall, as the greatest pulpit and platform orator the Congregationalists of Bristol ever had, and his daughter inherited much of his talent in writing at least, she having written several small books of religious narrative, which attracted no small amount of attention at the time of their publication. She contributed several articles to the Band of Hope Review, Sydney, and in this town our own columns have often been enlivened by her facile pen, by contributions over her own signature or a nom de plume, and perhaps many of our readers will remember the vigour and power with which she espoused the cause of an insulted sister on a certain public occasion, as well as the profound sensation that one short letter of hers produced. Unfortunately the disease from which she suffered for many years, and which was the immediate cause of death, increased so much in virulence that for the last two or three years she was unable to write anything either of a literary or private character.

Mrs. .Elizabeth Redman

One -of the best known residents of Corrimal, Mrs. Elizabeth Redman, passed away on Wednesday at the residence of her daughter (Mrs. R. Gibson), Bon Accord st. Corrimal; at the age of 86 years. '

She was born in Victoria and with her husband, the late William Redman, came to the South Coast over 50 years ago. They first resided at Dapto, where Mr. Redman was employed in the old Dapto Smelting Works. About five years later they moved to Corrimal, where Mrs. Redman has resided ever since. Her husband died in 1914. She was a devout and energetic worker for the Corrimal Church of England, and was also amongst, the very active workers forthe Red Cross during the last war.

A woman of a kindly nature she was ever ready to assist anyone in trouble, and her services at times of sickness and distress, were often availed of by neighbours and friends throughout the district. Despite .her advanced years she enjoyed good health until about a week ago, when she became confined to her bed. Her memory was particularly good and she was able to relate many interesting experiences and items of early history, not only of Corrimal but other parts of Australia, particularly early Victorian history.

She is survived by a grown up family of nine, and one son and one daughter predeceased her. Surviving members of the family are John (Lithgow), Harry (Lithgow) William (Sydney), Walter (Corrimal), Annie (Mrs. McGoldrick, Corrimal), Emily (Mrs.Stubbs, Corrimal), George (Corrimal), Robert (Sydney) and Maude (Mrs. Gibson, Corrimal).

Husband’s obituary

In April last it was our melancholy duty to record the death of Mrs. Frances Reed, the wife of one of Bourke’s oldest residents, Mr. James Reed, of North Bourke. To-day it falls to our lot to announce the death of Mr. Reed himself, who at the ripe old age of 88 years, has gone to rejoin the faithful sharer of his life's pilgrimage during an uninterrupted partnership of 67 years. Mr. Reed was naturally in failing health at the time of his wife’s decease and never recovered from the shock of her lose. On Sunday he passed quietly away, having attained his 88th year, and was buried on Monday, the funeral being attended by a large concourse of his numerous descend ants and friends. Mr. Reed was born in 1810, in Staffordshire, and during his early youth had been a soldier in the 80th regiment. In 1833 he came with his wife (whom he had married three years previously) to New South Wales in the “Earl Grey,” and after various experiences reached Bourke 1862, and here he remained till the day of his death, covering a period of 36 years. Twelve children were born to him, nine of whom still survive and are hold in high esteem, while his other direct descendants’ number 86 grand children and over 40 great grand children.

Late Mrs. Rees

One of the grand old pioneers passed away at a private hospital at Wollongong on Wednesday, in the person of Mrs. Amelia Rees, widow of the late Mr. Edward Rees, who pioneered the orchard industry at the Cordeaux River. Where he started, here stands today one or the finest orchards to be seen anywhere. The late Mr. Rees passed away 21 years ago. Mrs. Rees was born at the Cordeaux, and was reared at Goondarin Creek, being the sixth daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Brown, whose family consisted of seventeen children. When 19 years of age she married Mr. Rees, and went to live at the Cordeaux River. In those days settlers, in that district had many difficulties to surmount— bad tracks to market, etc. It was not an uncommon thing for produce to be taken to Wollongong by pack horse. The   late Mrs. Rees resided there until about three years ago,, when she moved to West Wollongong, where she purchased a property. She leaves a family of four sons and three daughters, two sons having predeceased her. She was a good mother and a good neighbour. One who had known her for a long time said 'You cannot write too highly about her.  The remains were interred in the Wollongong Methodist cemetery yesterday, The Rev. Wesley Stocks, who officiated at the last sad rites, referred in feeling terms to the good qualities of the deceased, praising her   pioneering work. He mentioned that she had for years placed her home at the disposal of the Methodist ministers to hold religious services. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 13 August 1937 p 5

Mr. and Mrs. William Rees, of Main rd. Woonona, celebrated their golden wedding on Wednesday, when a family gathering was held at their residence. They received many presents and floral tributes as well as numerous telegrams and letters of congratulations. They were married in the Bexley Presbyterian Church by Rev. Hill, on August 15, 1894. Mrs. Rees, who was formerly, Miss Charlotte Louise Hoffman, was born in Balmain 72 years ago and Mr. Rees was born at Mt. Kembla, 77 years ago. Mr. Rees came to Woonona when he was 14 months old, and apart from a trip round the world has resided in Woonona ever since. For a number of years he carried on business as a butcher. Mr. Rees was the founder of the Woonona Bowling Club, which this year will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary. He was president of the club for 12 years. Mr. and Mrs. Rees have raised a family of seven sons and two girls.

One son, Harry, was killed in the last war, and another son Jack, was accidentally killed at Port Kembla about two years ago. Two sons, Arthur and Tom, are serving with the A.I.F. Both Mr. and Mrs. Rees enjoy good health; and take an interest in many matters. Perhaps Mr. Rees' own summing-up is the most apt: 'We are still going strong and are good for at least another ten years, he said, when interviewed. Their many friends join in hoping that his forecast is correct. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 18 August 1944 p 4

Deep regret was expressed in Wollongong on Tuesday afternoon, when it was learned that Mrs. D. B. Rees, of Church Street, had passed away that morning after a lengthy illness. The late Mrs. Rees, who was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. D. M'Donald, of Wollongong, was a native of the town, and had lived here all her life. She was a woman with a bright and beautiful personality, and many of the older residents can recall the many title's that they had the pleasure of listening to her sweet voice. As a singer of note a few years ago, her services were largely availed of for the concert platform, while her voice had gladdened many a sick bed. For a great number of years she was an enthusiastic member of the Congregational Church Choir, and in the early days of the Illawarra District Choir she was one of the leading soloists . Possessing a big heart many were her kindly deeds in the cause of charity. It can therefore be said of her that she was one of nature's ladies. She was 58years of age at the time of her death, and leaves a husband and two step-sons, and a daughter (Mrs. R. Moore) to mourn the loss of a most affectionate wife and mother, and to them we express our deep regret. A short service in connection with the funeral of the late Mrs. Rees was held in the Congregation Church at 1.13 pm., on Wednesday. Miss Campbell presided at the organ. The hymns, 'Peace, Perfect Peace,' and 'Nearer My God to Thee' were sung. Included among the mourners were Messrs. Harry and W. A. McDonald (brothers).

There was a narrow escape of fire at residence of Mr. J. H. Hawkins on Wednesday. The mother had gone out for some groceries, leaving her little boy 3 years old in the house. The little chap was playing with the fire, and; hearing his mother coming hurriedly he placed the firestick under the shelf, setting fire to the cretonne. Mrs. Reeson happened to be in the vicinity, and succeeded in putting out the blaze. Only for her timely action, the consequences must have been very- serious.

OBITUARY. MRS CATHERINE REGAN. ONE of the oldest residents of the district has passed away, in Mrs. Catherine Regan, on Saturday last, aged 80 years. A kindly soul-a humble and truly Christian spirit was hers, with a heart particularly warm for little children; one who had more than the instil share of trouble and sorrow, and suffered reverses when ease should have attended her declining years, but had a cheerfulness of spirit which helped her to bear them with piety and uncompliant. We publish the following obituary kindly Sent by a contributor:

The late Catherine Regan, Whose death took place at Randwick on Saturday last, at the ripe age of 80 years, was sister of the late John Feehan (Gerringong) and Matthew Feehan (Braidwood), and widow of the late John Regan, of Crawley Forest. She was a native of Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary, Ireland, and immigrated to Canada when a girl. After remaining for two years;, assisting for most part of that time in nursing fever patients in a Convent at Montreal, she immigrated to New South Wales, arriving in the colony in the year 1857. Some two years afterwards she married the late John Regan of Crawley Forest (son of the late Timothy Regan), at his residence, the ceremony being performed by the late Rev. Pere Young (who for many years previous to the R.C. Church being built in Kiama celebrated Holy Mass at the house of Timothy Regan, who at his death bequeathed that same farm and property to the R.C. Church). Mrs. Regan remained a resident of Kiama till about ten months ago. After being an inmate of Kiama Hospital for some time and receiving every care from the good Matron and nurse; she was removed to the “Little Sisters of the Poor,' where she peacefully passed away on the date mentioned, consoled by the kind administrations of the good Sisters, and after receiving the last sacraments of her Church from the attendant Chaplain. May she rest in peace. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW: 1863 - 1947) Saturday 3 October 1908 p 2

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) GERRINGONG. IT is my sad duty to record the death of two very old residents of this district, viz, Mrs. Regan, of Mount Pleasant, near Kiama,…Mrs. Regan's demise was, I understand, rather sudden, for she was well and attending to her domestic duties as usual a day or two previous; but, having been seized by a heavy cold, and being old and feeble, she succumbed to its effects on Friday last, and was interred in the Roman Catholic portion of the cemetery on the following day,-the Rev. Mr. Quinn officiating. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Thursday 1 October 1874 p 2

Away back in the thirties, in a remote town land called Skisbereen, in the west of the County of Cork, Timothy O'Regan, with his wife and three sons (John, Daniel and Michael), carried on the occupation of farmers. Times were bad, very bad caused by the landholders having too much good land locked up for their own pleasure and sport. As a consequence, the land available for cultivation became scarce as the population increased, bringing in its wake high rents and no employment. Owing to this depression, and its consequent miseries, a number of honest men, who were willing to work these enclosed lands, joined in an agitation against the landowners. It was purely a provincial rising, and was apart from other matters that were disturbing the Irish people generally. This rising, however, had a special designation, and is quite familiar to students of Irish history; and, for taking part in that same, Timothy O'Regan found himself talking to himself one fine day in bonny New South Wales, with thousands of miles of sea between himself and his wife and family. He eventually found a home in Kiama, on the most picturesque spot in Australia, Mount Pleasant, and sent home in due course for his wife and family. Many people may have laughed at the simplicity and guilelessness of that homely pair and their three big, strong, innocent sons, as the latter grew into manhood ; but if we allow our memories to drift back to childhood days, we can well remember many kindly things said of Mr. and Mrs. Tim O'Regan. O'Regan's house gave food and shelter to the pioneer priests. The late Fathers Therry, Lucky and Young stayed there while wandering among their people in those pioneering days. Long before a Catholic Church was erected in the Kiama district Mass was celebrated in the old house on Mount Pleasant. And poor old Mrs. O'Regan had a heart, which she carried with her inside as well as outside the Church service she thoroughly believed in feeding those who came to pray, and she fed them. But, then, those were the good old days, when men had to be men and women loved to be women. In course of time Kiama got a Church erected, and Mr. and Mr. O'Regan worshipped there together, with their sons. Mr. and Mrs. O'Regan died many years ago. They were followed by Mr. John O'Regan, who married a sister of the late Mr. John Feehan, of the Crooked River, Gerringong, who left no family. Then Daniel and Michael resided together (neither of them having ever married) up to a few years ago, when Daniel died suddenly. Michael passed off quite “suddenly on Wednesday last, without a soul being near him to offer un a drink of water, or wipe the death dew front his brow. He must have been dead many hours before those whom one would expect to be near him in death's grasp to administer Christian consolation, came to claim his body. Then, strange to say, he was buried at North Kiama cemetery instead of with his father and mother and brothers in Gerringong, where the family grave and headstone, was for all those years kept ready to receive him. Verily, this is a cold, cruel, selfish world after all. By his death I am given to understand the good Sisters of St. Joseph, the resident Priest, whoever he may be from time to time, and the Cardinal and his successors, benefit by his last will and testament. If innocence, inoffensiveness, honesty of purpose, and a true sense of Christianity, insofar as his light guided him, can make a man as a little child before the Judgment Throne, then it augurs well for the future as regards Michael O'Regan. May he rest in peace. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Tuesday 5 September 1905 p 2

A Kiama resident of many years standing passed away on Saturday night at the age of 76 years, in the person of Miss Catherine Reid. For some years since the first stroke of paralysis she received, Miss Reid has been a confirmed invalid, and since the third and final attack about a month ago she has been unconscious.

Previous to her retirement from business Miss Reid, with her sister, carried on dress-making in Kiama, and was respected by all who know her,. Her disposition in heath was a kindly one, and she was a consistent and faithful member of the Roman Catholic Church. The Rev, Father Sheridan conducted the service at her residence in Terralong street, and at the gravesite in Jamberoo, where Miss Reid's mortal remains were buried beside those of her own brothers.

A fatal accident of a very melancholy nature occurred on the railway line yesterday forenoon, by which Mrs. Robert Sparke Reid, of Fairy Meadow, was killed instantaneously, as may be said. As the milk train was proceeding from the Wollongong direction about 11 o'clock, the guard or driver or both noticed a woman walking along the line near Towradgi Creek. At that time the train had passed Towradgi Lane, and was running along the incline toward the woman. The engine whistle was blown loudly and continuously to warn her of the approaching train, but instead of leaving the line, as was expected she would do, she stopped between the rails when she reached the bridge, and as she did so, the engine struck her, throwing her several feet into the air, and in falling she dropped over the side of the bridge, a depth of 25 feet. The driver stopped the train at once, and all the train hands and several passengers rushed to render what assisttance they could. Some neighbors also, who noticed the accident, did likewise. When reached, the woman was breathing slightly, but expired immediately. As far as could be seen, she had only one small bruise on the forehead, but the force with which she was struck by the train and the heavy fall off the bridge could not have failed to have injured her much more than was thus apparent — a supposition borne out by the fact that she died so soon from the effects. The body was conveyed at once to the residence of her daughter (Mrs. J. Wilson), which was not far distant, and probably to which the deceased was going at the time she was so suddenly overtaken by death, her object in taking the railway route, doubtless, being to save distance in walking. It is understood that the deceased was very deaf, and that being so, would account for her evidently not hearing the railway whistle, which was sounded to warn her off the line. The name of the guard of the train is Benjamin Bragg, and that of the driver, James Bell. Mr. C. F. Smith, the coroner, who was a passenger on the train, decided to hold an inquest concerning the accident this forenoon. A representative of the Mercury was also on the train, and witnessed the accident. The deceased lady, who was well into years and was an old and respected resident of this end of the district, leaves a husband and numerous grown up family to mourn her sad and sudden death.

Death of Mrs. M. Reid,

— Mrs. Martha Reid, mother of Mr. Alex. G. Reid, licensee of the Albion Hotel, died early on Sunday morning lost at the advanced age of 77. The deceased was a fine type of the north-country Irishwoman with all the traditional attributes of personal character, and was much esteemed for her genial and charitable yet unostentatious disposition as well as for her ready fund of good native wit and humour. The old lady, who had been a widow a long time, came out to N.S.W. from her native county (Donegal) thirty years ago to keep house for Mr. Alex. Reid (her only surviving son), with whom she continued to reside after his marriage

She enjoyed good health until a few months ago, and her peaceful life ended peacefully during her sleep in the early hours of a peaceful Sabbath morning. Mr. Reid, who is now left with no relatives in Australia, has received messages of condolence of many friends in city and country.

The interment took place on Monday at Nowra general cemetery in the presence of a large number of sympathising friends. The Nowra Leader (NSW : 1909 - 1939) Friday 2 February 1912 p 6

On Saturday morning, at her residence in Terralong-street, Kiama, there passed peacefully away in the 91st year of her life — Miss Reid — one who has watched the growth of the district for about 55 years. The Nowra Leader (NSW : 1909 - 1939) Friday 3 December 1909 p 6


On Saturday morning, at her residence in Terralong street, there passed peacefully, away in the 91st year of her age one who has watched the growth of the district from its settlement almost.

Between 50 and 60 years Miss Reid has lived in it, respected and beloved by all who knew her for her saintliness of character, cheerful disposition and kindliness of feeling towards her fellow creatures. It might safely be said few if any heard Miss Reid speak evil or unkindly of anyone; malice or charitableness could never be associated with her. To the last her intellect was clear, and it was interesting to hear her talk of the early days. Infirmity of body prevented her getting about, or even to her church (of which she was a devoted member) for the last year, but her interest never flagged in the life and people about her or the topics of the day. Her grand niece (Miss Ryan) was unremitting in her care and attention, as was also Dr. Fox as her medical adviser. Miss Reid was born in Belfast, Ireland, and was buried beside others of her family at Jam beroo on Sunday last….

The death occurred on Sunday last, at her residence, Boronia, Frenchman's-road, Randwick, of Mrs. Sarah Ann Reid, wife of Mr. Ben Reid, late of Bowral and Wilde's Meadow. Death was due to heart failure, and was quite unexpected. Deceased had been in her usual good health all day, and about five o'olock in the afternoon was left alone in the house for only a few minutes by her youngest daughter, Marjorie, on whose return it was found that Mrs. Reid, had suddenly collapsed and died. She was a native of this district, being the eldest daughter of the late Mr. Barber, of Manchester Square. For many years she resided at Wilde's Meadow and afterwards at Bowral for some considerable time in both places— and in fact all through the district— she had many friends, to whom the news of her death came as a great shock.

She was 69 years of age, and leaves a husband and family of five daughters (Mrs. C. Brown, Bowral ; Mrs. Norman Jones, Redfern ; Mrs. W. P. Cornes, Wallsend; Mrs. W. Ross, Springwood ; and Miss Marjorie Reid Randwick) and one son (Mr. Charles Reid, Randwick) to mourn their loss. The remains were interred in the Church of England Cemetery at Waverley on Tuesday.

Living at Corrimal in 1903 Electoral Roll – Domestic Duties.


John James Remilton, a coal miner, of Balmain, petitioned for a divorce from Margaret Remilton, formerly Lewis, on the ground of her adultery with Robert Whiteall, who was joined as co-respondent.

The petitioner, who was represented by Mr. Bertram, said he married the respondent in May, 1892, at Bulli, according to the Anglican rites. In May, 1904, they were living at Corrimal, on the South Coast, and he put in an application for the position of a surgeon's assistant in the navy. He came to Sydney, and after he returned the respondent asked him how he got on. He said they, told him he was too old. She remarked, 'Just your luck.' Shortly after he saw his wife take up a glass, and swallow the contents. Having smelt the glass, he asked her what she was drinking the medicine for, and she told him -that the day petitioner left for Sydney she went to Wollongong to a dance, and when she was returning something occurred.' Petitioner asked, 'Who is the person?' She answered, giving the man's name, and then petitioner

Observed, 'Do you think that's the duty of a wife — to be carrying on with other men during my absence?' He added that he would see more about it, and she remarked there was no occasion, as it was as much her fault as it was the man she had mentioned. She asked him to forgive- her, assuring him that she would never misconduct herself again, and he did, for the sake of the children.

About three months after, while he was employed at the Coaldale Colliery, the correspondent, who was a mine laborer, used to have his meals at their house. . One day petitioner went to work, and on his return he found a note lying on the bedroom table. It was Inhis wife's handwriting, and it began, 'I'll be a few miles away by the time you get this — over the water.' She also wrote, 'You need never expect to get me back again.'

Petitioner subsequently heard something, and proceeded to Cataract, where his wife was. In the conversation he had with her she said she was living with a man she loved. Petitioner said, 'A beer sparrer.'

His Honor: What's a beer sparrer? — Well, a man who does nothing but loaf about the town, cadging beers. What did she say? — 'I can please myself who I go with.'

Other evidence was given to the effect that the respondent and co-respondent had occupied the same room, and that she had been heard- to say she would stick to Whiteall as long as she had breath.

A decree nisi was granted, to be moved: absolute in six months. Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931) Wednesday 25 March 1908 p 7

Fire at Angel's Creek. — On Sunday morning, the 7th inst., between the hours of 12 and 1, a slab kitchen, in the occupation of Matthew Revell, at Angel's Creek, Para Meadow, was discovered to be on fire. Prompt assistance was rendered by the neighbors, but for whose timely aid the adjoining dwelling-house would have been burned down. The kitchen, which was shingled, contained amongst other articles about 10 cwt. of tallow, valued at £20, and a single-barrelled gun, the property of Mr D. Griffin, jun., butcher of this town. As the building and its contents were uninsured and there was no suspicion in the case, the Coroner declined holding an inquest.

Child Desertion.— At the Police Court on Thursday, a child about 6 years of age, named William Reynolds, was brought up for protection, having been found wandering about Mount Pleasant by the police. It appears that the mother of the little follow has for some time past been confined in the Hospital for Insane, and that his father left the district about a fortnight since, leaving three younger children to the care of persons living in the neighbourhood of Mount Pleasant, the child in question being left to shift for himself as best he could. He received food from the charitably disposed residents, and sometimes slept in their houses at night, whilst on other occasions he spent the night either in the bush or in front of the furnace door at the Mount Pleasant colliery. The Police Magistrate ordered the little fellow, who appeared quite unconcerned about the matter, to be sent on board the Vernon. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Saturday 25 May 1889 p 2

(Any vagrant or destitute child under the age of sixteen could be directed by two Justices of the Peace to attend an Industrial School. The Vernon was a ship which was used to provide a combination of moral training, nautical and industrial training and instruction, and elementary schooling.)

John Bernard Reynolds was charged with deserting his three children, aged respectively four months, two years, and four years.

Defendant said that the infant, had died on Saturday last, at the residence of Mrs. Looney; he left his back-pay, amounting to £3 10s, with Mrs. Looney when he left about three weeks go, towards the support of the children; he always intended to pay for the support and education of the children, and intended to send money regularly for that purpose.

Defendant was ordered to pay 10s weekly towards the support of the two surviving children which payments to be made to Senior sergeant Grieve, the first to be made June 10. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 28 May 1889 p 2

The Late Mrs. J. Richardson— On Wednesday afternoon last, the remains of the late Mrs. J. Richardson were consigned to their last resting place in the Wollongong Presbyterian Cemetery. And notwithstanding the attractions of the Dapto Show on that day, the funeral was largely attended, the deceased lady being highly respected by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. As is well known by most of our readers, she was the worthy wife of Mr. J. Richardson, the master of the Unanderra Public School. Through most of her life she enjoyed good health, but for some time past was completely prostrated by a severe ailment, which weakened her slowly but surely to such an extent that she passed away last Monday. She was a native of the north of Ireland, whence she came to this colony with her husband and family upwards of twenty years ago. By her death her sorrowing partner and sons and daughters have lost all they could have desired as a wife and mother, her every day example in all respects being that of a true Christian woman. As almost invariably is the case regarding all good mothers, each member of the large family now left to call her blessed, is truly respectable.

Edward Bourke v. Mary Ann Rigney.

Mr. Waring, Solicitor, for Bourke, and Mr. Robert Owen for Rigney. Neither of the professional gentlemen were in attendance. Mrs. Rigney asked for an adjournment, but as Bourke had witnesses who could not, without great loss of time, remain in the district until the next Court day, the case was proceeded with:

For the plaintiff—

Edward Bourke sworn, said: He was a farmer living at Jamberoo. Knew the late James Rigney. Took a farm from him about two years ago on lease (now produced) for ten years. He was to pay £10 for, the first year, £15 the second, and £25 a year for the remainder of the term. Rigney went to live in Sydney shortly after, but returned to Kiama about May last and asked plaintiff if he would give up the farm to him, as he was desirous of living on it again.

They afterwards agreed about terms and plaintiff gave up possession to Rigney who afterwards put someone to work on it. Rigney was to allow £6 for improvements but as he had no money to pay plaintiff he was to give him grassing for certain cattle.

There was £5 due to Rigney for rent, and for difference plaintiff was to have the right of grazing four head of cattle from May to September. About the 12th possession was given to Rigney, and plaintiff took away his property except the graziers. It was on the 10th of May he (plaintiff) told Rigney he could have possession any day he liked. Plaintiff said the lease had better be destroyed, to which Rigney replied ' Well; Taylor has the lease, and as soon as he could got it it should be given up. . On the 10th or 17th of May Young Rigney was at work on the land. On the 4th of July plaintiff received a warrant of distress for rent, and the bailiff seized the four head of cattle which wore grazing on the land.

To defendant: He had paid half a year's rent to Mr. Taylor. Rigney authorized him to pay it. He had no receipt for that payment. He had paid away hundreds without taking a receipt.

Mary Ann Campbell, sworn, said: She knew the late James Rigney and Edward Rourke, and had been told by both parties that Bourke had a lease of land from Rigney. A little while before he died Mr. Rigney told her that he had got back the place from Bourke at last, and that he was going to give him a run for his cattle. He said he was very glad to get it as the place where he was staying was too amp for him. (Mr Hindmarsh took his seat j

Andrew Bourke; sworn; said: He was a brother of plaintiff's, and knew about his having a lease from Rigney. After Rigney returned from Sydney he wanted the place back again, and witness was present when his brother agreed to let him have it. Ned was owing him for rent £5 and Rigney agreed to allow £6 for improvements; but said ' Ned, I have no money,' and his brother told him he did not want the money: but if he would give him a run for his dry cattle, and let him have the use of the barn until he got the crops off, that would satisfy him;

Sometime before Rigney died he asked Ned to take the place again, and he said he would not.

Emma Taylor, sworn, said: She knew nothing about the case, only that, on the Queen's birthday, young Rigney came and asked for the lease of the farm to Bourke. That his father had got the place from Bourke, and wanted to give him up the lease.

There passed away at her daughter's (Mrs. D. Ritchie) residence, Dorrigo, on the 20th February, 1919, Mrs. Margaret Risk, wife of the late Samuel Risk. Deceased had been ailing for the past few years. About 12 months ago; she was an inmate of Nurse Tyrrell's hospital, and it was thought then that the end was near. She rallied, and was able to remove to her home. For about, six months her health caused the family much anxiety. The loss of a son at the front came as a great shock, which did not improve her health. Mrs. Risk, feeling a little stronger, went on a visit with Miss Risk to Dorrigo to spend Christmas with her son. Samuel and daughter Mrs. Ritchie. After a few weeks her health began to fail and medical attention had to be received. Thinking it a usual attack, the family did not feel anxious until a few days before her death. She got weaker, sank into unconsciousness and died before any of the members, of the family could reach her. The body was brought to Lismore by special car. The funeral took place at. Wollongbar on Sunday, 23rd February, the, Rev. Mr. MacKillop officiating at the graveside. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr. T. Rilev. Four sons and seven daughters are left to mourn their loss, viz., Mrs. Wilson (Queensland), Mrs. Lumsden (Nowra.), Mrs. Ritchie (Dorrigo), Mrs. Stuckey, Mrs. Alcorn, Miss Risk and Mrs. Knight (Richmond River) ; Mr. James Risk (Gladesville), Samuel (Dorrigo),Robert and Lindsay (Richmond River). Two children, Mrs. Win. Johnston and Private Joseph Risk, predeceased her. Mrs. Risk came to the river with her late husband and family 21 years ago, and took up dairying, first on Cogan's estate, then Garvan's estate. Latter years were spent, at Boatharbour and Bexhill.

A memorial service was held in the Wesleyan Church, Bega, on Sunday morning last in connection with the late Mrs. Alec. Ritchie. The Rev. G. O. Cocks conducted the service and based his discourse upon Revelation xiv, 13, and at the close of the sermon the following obituary notice was read : —

Kate Ritchie was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Graham, formerly of Dapto, but was born in Co. Tyrone, Ireland, in August 1838. Her parents were both devoted Christians and staunch members of the Methodist Church. She was but a little child when her parents landed in Australia and settled in the neighbourhood of Wollongong, her father being the pioneer of Methodism in the Illawarra district. It is not surprising to know that with such influences about her she should early in life, devote herself to the service of God. Her talents were utilised in the Sabbath School and many other spheres labour in Kiama, whither she had gone to live with her brother. In 1862 she was married to Mr. Alec. Ritchie of this district and came to live in Bega where the remainder of her life was spent. When our cause was established here she identified herself with the church from its commencement, and in the erection of the church both she and her husband largely shared. Her last illness was not thought to be serious, but gradually she declined until early on the morning of the 7th inst., she peacefully passed away to her reward. A few days before she died the writer asked her if she realised her Saviour's presence; to which she replied, ' Jesus is my hope— Jesus is my hope.' A few hours before she breathed her last she confirmed that testimony. One who was scarcely ever absent, from her side during her illness says her last words were, 'My Jesus, my Jesus.' It only remains for me to add that she was an exemplary wife and mother, sensible and straightforward in her character, kind to her neighbours and especially those who were in need, at the same time ever thoughtful of the interests of those immediately around her. The families of the village settlement have lost a true friend, the Methodist Church has lost a consistent member, while a peaceful home has been deprived of its chief attraction. May those who remain find their comfort and consolation in the blessed assurance that she is 'with Christ, which is far better.' The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 16 December 1893

A large number of friends and sympathizers joined the procession to the local cemetery, where the burial took place in the Catholic section, the Rev. M. Buckley officiating at the grave.

Robb - Servant Girls

SNAKES AT MIDNIGHT.-The following incident will be a caution to females and others not to sit up at night with open doors. On Friday night, last, about twelve I o'clock, two servant girls of Mr. Robb's, of Riversdale, (near Kiama, were sitting at the kitchen table sewing, the back door being open. One of the girls felt something cold crawling over her bare feet, and, on looking down, to her horror she saw a half-grown black snake, about two feet six or three feet in length. Starting up in alarm, and getting hold of a piece of wood, she made one or two hurried blows at the reptile, which eluded her, however, glided round the kitchen, and finally took shelter behind a clothes' basket under the kitchen table. The girls being very much frightened called the male inmates of the house to their assistance, when a strict search was made for the dangerous interloper, but without success. Next day, the girls not being satisfied, made a fresh search in their own bed-room, which is off the kitchen, and found the snake dead under one of the boxes that had been moved the previous night. The snake must have been passing under it whilst it was being moved, and was squeezed to death by the box being dropped on it. Empire (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1875) Tuesday 23 February 1858

OBITUARY. MRS. ELIZABETH ROBB. AGED 75 YEARS. District-wide regret was felt when the sad and unexpected news of Mrs. Hugh Robb's death became known on Sunday morning, though she had been ailing for some time. The daughter of the late Mr. Gordon; Mrs. Robb was born in this district, and married into a pioneer family, represented in Illawarra for almost a century, for among the earlier settlers were the Robbs of Riversdale, who brought the traditions of a fine Scotch ancestry to found their first home on that estate. The late Mrs. Robb was beloved by all who knew her. The warm-hearted hospitality of her home, the kindliness of her welcome, a household word. In earlier days when strength was hers, kindness to the sick was another attribute generally recognised, and she was a loyal friend as well as one of the best as wife and mother. Her Christian character was also a pattern to all with whom she came in contact; and in church work, she took a deep and helpful interest. A gloomy outlook on life was never hers, she met the buffeting that life brings to all, with a cheer in her smile and hope in her heart, and a keen sense of humour.

When those loyal folk, identified with the by-gone days and the history of the district, pass to the other side, a gap is left that time cannot fill. As help mate for over 50 years (for Mr. and Mrs. Robb recently celebrated their golden wedding) she will be most sadly missed, and to Mr. Robb, the deepest sympathy is extended by his old friends who realise what the loss means to him. To her sons ,and daughters also, for she was a splendid mother. Left to mourn her beside her sorrowing husband, is a family of 4 sons in Ernest, Harry, William and Milton, and 4 daughters in Ida (Mrs. Clark), Myrtle, Elsie (Mrs. Munday), and Minnie (Mrs. O. Tory). The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 22 May 1926 p 2

Yellow Rock Fatality

A shocking double fatality occurred on Sunday morning last at Yellow Rock, when Emma Robb, aged 55 years, wife of Arthur Robb, and Lavina Myrtle, age 25, only daughter, met their deaths at Yellow Rock Creek, while on their way to church; apparently thrown out of the sulky while crossing the Yellow Rock Creek, the surmise being that; the horse bolted. Both were highly respected, and had resided for many years in that locality, Mrs. Robb being a native of Jamberoo, while her daughter was born at Yellow Rock. Mrs. Robb is survived by a husband and three grown-up sons. The fatality caused something of a sensation in the Albion Park district, the circumstances being particularly sad, and the bereaved ones were the recipients of expressions of sympathy from a wide area… South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 24 June 1921 p 21

At Kiama last week there passed away a worthy member of the fine old district family in Miss Phoebe Robb, daughter of the late James Robb, of Riversdale. Her Christian character, warm-hearted helpfulness in sickness, affliction, or when charity called endeared her to all who knew her, and earned their respect and esteem. During the war she worked early and late for the soldiers — unostentatiously, for she had no desire for the limelight — no patriotic cause for which an appeal was made was allowed to pass by without assistance.

Members of her family mourning her loss in this district are: — Mrs. McClintock, Mr. Hugh Robb (brother), and Mrs. H. H. Honey (sister), and a number of nieces and nephews. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 31 August 1923 p 2

Narrow Escape— An elderly woman who resides near the Kerosene Works, at American Creek, had a very narrow escape of being killed last Saturday morning. Her name is Mrs. Robbins, and it appears she is very old, and has been receiving aid from the Out-door Relief Department of the Hospital since the time that branch was established under the designation of the Benevolent Society. It appears the old lady has been living in a house alone for some time past, and that on the day referred to a large branch, or head of a tree fell upon the frail domicile and its still frailer occupant. Although the weight of the timber that fell would be more than sufficient to level the strongest house in the district to the ground, it came down around Mrs. Robbins and her edifice in such a way as to do neither one nor the other scarcely any harm. The affair occurred at an early hour in the morning, just as the old lady was rising, and her terror may be better imagined than described, when she found that herself and her house had such, a narrow escape from being crushed into the earth in such a fearful manner. It is almost needless to state that the neighbours immediately rendered assistance to clear the fallen timber away from the premises which had been so miraculously preserved.

Widespread regret was felt throughout the district when it became known that Mrs. Annie Robbins, wife of Mr. Frederick Robbins, teacher of the Kangaloon Public School, had passed away at an early hour on Friday morning last. For some months past Mrs. Robbins had been Very seriously ill so that the end was not unexpected, and came really as a happy release from much suffering, borne with true and characteristic patience and resignation. During her many years residence by a nature which thought not of self, but always of the comfort and happiness of others, to which her life seems to be devoted. Since the outbreak of war she had been an enthusiastic worker in all patriotic movements, and acted as secretary of the Kangaloon Patriotic Society until the state of her health compelled her to relinquish the duties. She was also closely associated with local church work, as well as with all social matters, and everywhere her genial personality and kindly interest will be greatly missed, her death leaving a blank in the social life of Kangaloon which it will be very hard to fill. Throughout her illness she was devotedly and lovingly cared for by her husband and only child Doris, and the heartfelt sympathy of their many friends goes out to these two in their great sorrow. The deceased was in the prime of life, being only 41 years of age. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon, and was largely attended. After a short service at the residence, conducted by Mr. W. A. Walker, the remains were laid at rest in the Methodist Cemetery at Kangaloon, Robertson Advocate (NSW : 1894 - 1923) Tuesday 10 September 1918 p 2

Death of Mrs. Robbins

In our last issue we recorded with deep regret the demise of Mrs Margaret Robbins (relict of the late Mr Philpott John C Robbins), a very old and highly esteemed resident of Penrith, the sad event transpiring at the late home of deceased, Henry Street, Penrith, on 5th inst.; and in accordance with intimation in our last issue, we are now privileged to publish details of the late estimable lady's life history.

Mrs Robbins, who was in her 87th year, the date of her birth being 21st September, 1830, was indeed one of the historic personalities, so to speak, of Penrith, her associations with the town and district having covered the very long period of 77 years. Mrs Robbins, whose family name was Toner, arrived in Australia in 1840 with her father and two sisters, the family hailing from the North of Ireland, where her forebears had dwelt for generations. As instancing, “en passant,” the longevity of the Toner family, we would mention that one or Mrs Robbins' two sisters, viz., Mrs Hadley, of Cudal, is still living, hale and hearty, at the advanced age of 84; while the other sister, Mrs Robson, Enmore, only recently departed this life in her 86th year, her demise having been accelerated by an accident. Soon after coming to Australia the family settled in Penrith, and Mr Tonor (Mrs Robbins' father) entered upon pastoral pursuits; but a few years later, while crossing the Nepean in flood-time, in a flat-bottomed boat, at a point below the old Tweed Factory, he met his death by drowning, to the great grief of his young family of daughters. On 14th August, 1851, deceased was married to Mr Philpott J C Robbins (who was then busily engaged in the waggon-building and black- smithing trade at Penrith) in St. Stephen's Church, by Rev Mr Watson, and the newly-wedded pair took up their residence in premises now occupied by the Byrnes family in Henry Street, later removing to the cottage—long since demolished — opposite Mr A Judges' establishment, High Street.

In those years which ushered in the great golden epoch— the discovery of the precious metal on the Turon and other fields— as Mrs Robbins used to relate, Penrith was a very lively and busy rendezvous of traffic, and its situation at the foot of the mountains made it, by general selection, a popular camping place for the outgoing carriers and gold-seekers; a convenient location from which to begin the first day's mountain journey. It was, likewise, a favored “port of call” for the coaches (Cobb and Co's. and Perry and Weaver's lines, etc) that   preceded the crossing of the railway, then just looming on the fringe of the horizon of history. Mr Robbins had leased a large portion of the Tyndall and York Estates at the period, part of which was used as camping ground by carriers, etc., and the late Mrs Robbins mentioned that as many as 50 teams or more camped frequently in that locality.

The late Mr Philpott Robbins, we might mention, in passing, was a man of great and varied activities, taking a keen interest in public, military and general affairs, and he had held, successively, the commissions of Ensign, Lieutenant and Captain in the old Penrith Military (volunteers) forces. An elegant presentation sword, presented by the old Penrith Company to Capt Robbins in 1871, was amongst Mrs Robbins' most cherished household possessions, and it (sword) will naturally be viewed as an historic heirloom by the Robbins family. Mr Robbins died in 1875, thus pre- deceasing his wife by 42 years. It may be interesting to remark here that the baptismal names of Philpott John Curran, conferred on Mr Robbins were in cognisance of the great Irish orator of that name, who was a relative of the maternal side of the Robbins family. The late Mrs Robbins had been a most devout, zealous and consistent church adherent, and had attended Divine Service at St. Stephen's, practically, since the dedication of that sacred and historic edifice; and had been ever a keen and energetic worker in charitable and benevolent functions. She was a most interesting raconteur, and it will be remembered that some years ago a resume of her (Mrs Robbins') reminiscences appeared in the columns of the “Nepean Times.” The deceased lady took great interest in the work of the Church of England Sunday School, which, in her earlier period, stood on the site now occupied by the dwelling of Mr John Scott (now living at Manly) in Henry Street. It is thought that the severe accident which Mrs Robbins experienced some 18 months ago, viz., a fracture of the right hip, was conducive to her death, in a measure, as she never seemed to fully recover from the resultant shock, and, naturally, at her advanced age, such a casualty could not fail to greatly weaken and distress the sufferer. Prior to the interment at St. Stephen's Cemetery, Penrith on Good Friday afternoon, a brief memorial service was held at St. Stephen's Church, when Rev M G Hinsby (rector) made touching commemorative references to the estimable beneficient life of the deceased lady. The chief mourners were the two sons, three sons-in-law, five grandsons, and three nephews; and the coffin was borne from the hearse to grave by four grandsons of deceased. The surviving members of the Robbins family are Messrs E J Robbins, Post- master, King Street, Sydney; H W Robbins, Department Home Affairs, Canberra; and Mrs W Curtis, Tennyson Street, Enfield. There are 23 grandchildren and 5 greatgrandchildren. In reviewing the passing of Mrs. Robbins, whose memory, is a benediction to her relatives and country, in noting that her declining years were brightened by the glowing recollections and graces of a well ordered life, one finds the gracious lines of Words- worth most applicable, viz. — An old age, serene and bright, And lovely as a Lapland night, Shall lead then to thy grave.   At the interment, Rev M G Hinsby officiated at the graveside. The funeral arrangements were conducted by Mrs John Price and Son. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Monday 9 April 1917 p 8

Charles was well known in Wollongong for his cheerful nature, his songs and poems and his way of dress – a Glengarry cap, a twisted stick and, at times, a kilt. In addition to his farming Charles earned extra money transporting passengers from the busy Wollongong harbour to their destination, entertaining all and sundry in his good humoured way. Charlotte, convicted at the Old Bailey, London, was only 4' 9 1/4”. She was often known to walk, with two or three children at her side, from their Mt Alma farm to Wollongong to sell the farm produce. In all her 75 years Charlotte was never under medical treatment.

Yesterday forenoon Mrs. Robertson, wife of Charles Robertson, died suddenly at her residence Hell Hole, off O'Brien's Road. The cause of death, it is believed, was heart disease. The coroner being notified of the fact, held an inquiry yesterday afternoon, the result of which we had not learned at the time of our going to press.

With the death of Mrs. Edith Margaret Robinson, of Underwood st., which occurred at her home on Tuesday, the town has lost a very fine citizen and one whose passing will be regretted by all sections of the community. The late Mrs. Robinson was 77 years of age. She was the relict of the late Mr. John Robinson, who was in business in the town for a number of years as a general store keeper. Mrs. Robinson was a wonderful wife and mother, and as a neighbour was ever ready to lend a helping hand. Of late years she had not enjoyed the best of health, but she was cheerful to the end. Sincere sympathy is extended to the members of the family, Mary (Mrs. G. Green, Corrimal), Florence (Mrs. H. Sellers, Corrimal), George (Sutherland), David (Corrimal), Margaret (Mrs. J. Brown (Corrimal). Elizabeth (Mrs H. Green, Woonona) and Frank. The funeral on Wednesday to the Woronora Crematorium was representative of all sections of the town and district.

ROBINSON.-On Thursday, June 27th, at the residence of his parents, Omega, Retreat, Ernest Botsford, youngest son of William and Fanny Robinson, aged two years and ten months, of whooping cough. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 5 July 1878 p 2


There has passed away to his eternal reward a man who was for half a century identified with the dairying industry in Kiama. He was one of the pioneer dairymen of Illawarra, having arrived here a young man from his native home in the County Fermanagh, Ireland, upwards of 65 years ago. He was a man possessed of an iron constitution, and in the early days of the primitive bush could swing an axe with any man on the land. He married a Miss Morrow, who proved a good and faithful   helpmate, and the pair commenced dairying at Omega, near Kiama, where a large family of sons and daughters were reared into man and woman hood. About ten years ago the old couple left Kiama and went to reside in Sydney, where Mrs. Robinson died a few years ago. The deceased gentleman passed over to the Great Beyond at the ripe age of 87 years, at the residence of his son-in-law, “Iono,' Rocky Point road, Kogarah, on 18th December, 1915.

Husband ‘went for walk’ and went missing in 1921-he was assumed to be dead but no body was found. .


Frances Alice Robinson related a somewhat similar story.

She was now working as a cleaner, she said. Her husband was admitted to the Gladesville Asylum in December, 1921, but had disappeared. He had never been heard of since, she said. While he was there the Lunacy Department lodged a caveat against her banking account, and she consulted defendant, who advised her to draw £20. This she did and there upon defendant told her to draw the balance, £479.

“You had better leave the money in my trust,” defendant, she said, advised her. “I will get better interest for you,” he is alleged to have added.

Witness told him that she had four children, and “would require £1 or 25s a week. She handed him the money, and he repaid her about £9. The balance, however, was still owing.

Constable Clifford said that, when he questioned defendant respecting the charges, he said, “It was a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul. Some of the money went in extravagant, living, and the balance in bad Investments. I will plead guilty,” he is alleged to have added. “There is nothing else for me to do.” The Sun (Sydney, NSW : 1910 - 1954) Wednesday 19 December 1928 p 15

James Robinson appeared on a charge of deserting his wife Martha Robinson. :

Mr. Russell for complainant. Complainant stated : I am the wife of James Robinson, and have been married six years: was married when I was 16 years old I have two children alive, and two dead ; I reside at North Bulli, and keep two boarders ; my husband: requested me to go to Bulli for some horse feed ; a woman named Mrs. Hopewell accompanied me ; we were on horseback; when leaving Bulli, I saw my two boarders, who went home with us ; about a quarter of a mile from the house, my husband sprang from behind a bush and struck me without saying a word, pulled me off the horse, and said 'you b — I'm not done with you yet', I will kill you before I am done ;' he beat me about the head ; these two black eyes are the result of the beating; Mrs. Hopewell got off her horse and ran between me and my husband to prevent him from further striking me - one of the boarders (Fred Hunt) held my husband ; when I got home he struck me again, and said I would be dead before six months ; I left the house next day with the two children ; I was and am in terror by the conduct of my husband, and the reason I left the house, was his conduct towards me ; this is not the first occasion- he has used me in a similar manner; I never gave my husband any provocation for his ill-treatment ; my husband earns 8s 6d a day, and is a blacksmith, working at the Bulli mine in constant employment.

By defendant: It is not the first time I have left my home; I had provocation for leaving you because you thrashed me; there were no letters received for me from a young man while I was away in Sydney. I did not tell you I was going to leave you, because I was afraid of you; I went away for protection ; I do not know if you followed me.

Frederick Hunt stated : I am one of the boarders; I accompanied Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Hopewell home ; about a quarter of a mile from the house defendant sprang out from behind a bush and struck his wife, pulled her off the horse, and called her a 'b- flaming b–—-' ; she gave him no provocation to hit her; twice he told her he would cut her b—— flaming head off ; next morning at breakfast he again struck her, and made her nose bleed. :

Defendant stated: I have had great provocation to strike my wife, not only on this occasion but on many previous occasions;

Mrs. Hopewell said she had not been on horse for 7 years, and would like to go for a ride ; I was quite willing they should go, providing the children were put to bed ; while my wife and Mrs. Hopewell were away the children woke up ; I was very much provoked by them doing so, and also at my wife staying away so long ; I went some distance to see if they were coming home, when I saw them in company with two of the boarders, standing yarning and joking for about ten minutes ; I was greatly enraged ; I did strike her; my wife has on previous occasions stayed out till 11 o'clock ; the provocation I have had would make a man do more than I have done ; I never threatened to cut her head off.

By Mr. Russell : I have been here before, charged with assaulting the police, and being drunk and disorderly ; Dixon was the constable I assaulted ; I did not bite his ear off ; I punched him; I was fined £3; I have accused my wife of impropriety with one man; my wages are £2 10s per week; I, am in constant employment.

Defendant was ordered to pay 15s per week for the support of his wife, and costs 29s 4d. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Saturday 10 July 1886 p 2

ROBSON -October 3,1896, at her residence, Wollongong, Margaret, relict of the late William Robson, aged 71years The Sydney Morning Herald 10 October 1896

William ROBSON

William was born February 25, 1817 at Wallsend, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Nothing is known of his early life until he married Ann VEITCH on September 10, 1836. Of Ann nothing is known and even her birth is assumed at about April 27, 1817; she seems to have been called Annie and sometimes Anna.

William and Annie had their first child Margaret in Northumberland, England; she was born August 26, 1839. At this time it also appears that William was illiterate as he signed the birth certificate with his mark (X); he would obviously overcome this handicap in the next few years. William Robson was a coal miner and the 1841 UK census lists him as “pitman”. It is obvious that at about this time the family had made up their mind to emigrate as William had signed a seven year contract with the Australasian Agricultural Company (AACo.) which had taken over control of coal mining at Newcastle, New South Wales

William, Annie and the two year old Margaret made their way to Plymouth where, in late August or the first days of September, they boarded the ship EMERALD ISLE bound for Australia. The voyage lasted for 111 days and they arrived in Sydney on Thursday December 23 1841. Anne ROBSON give birth to a male child during the voyage on September 11, 1841. This child would later be baptised Matthew Edward on February 6, 1842at Christ Church, Newcastle. After arrival the AACo workers and their families were immediately transhipped to Newcastle where they arrived on Christmas Day, 1841. William and Annie moved into their quarters at Wickham, where they lived from 1841 to 1849. William rapidly set about improving his situation and although his occupation on his children's Baptism records is shown as “miner” after a short while he was managing one of the AACo collieries at Wickham. He also set about acquiring property. By 1844 William was showing himself to be a shrewd speculator in the acquisition of land not only was he a mine manager but by now he was also a mine owner.

In the early 1850’s William had become interested in the Wollongong area, and in 1853 had taken over the management of Mt Keira Coal Mine, which had been operating on a limited scale since 1848, being one of the first mines in the Wollongong area. Although he was managing the Mt Keira mine, William and the family continued to live in East Maitland. By 1853 his family consisted of a daughter and three sons; a second daughter had died in 1851 aged two.

It so happened that William with his wife and young family lived opposite the Elliotts in East Maitland where Thomas Wiseman had taken his wife and four children to live with her parents in 1849 when he left for California. William would have been well aware of the Wiseman family when she was widowed two years later and their paths would have crossed many times in the next two years before William's own wife died.

Tragedy struck the family when Annie died on September 15, 1853. As with her birth, confusion surrounds her death. It is believed that an Ann ROBSON who was listed in the Parish Register entry in the district of Morpeth as aged 57 at the time of her death was Annie VEITCH but that an error had been made entering her age which should have been about 37; she was described as a “Colliers Wife”. Other research states that she died on 16 January 1853 some 9 months earlier which I tend to believe as I would think that her husband would have been unlikely to re-marry after only four months. If she did die later rather than earlier, she was buried on September 17, 1853.

As two single parents of similar backgrounds, both with young children and living in close proximity, it was hardly surprising that the William Robson and Margaret Wiseman should marry for their mutual benefit. This they did on January 7, 1854 at Maitland starting their married life with a total family of eight children; four surviving Robsons, Margaret, Matthew, William and Thomas and four Wisemans; William, Thomas, Margaret and Charles. They immediately set about producing the first of nine more that they would have together. The eighth of those children, their fourth daughter, was born 27 October 1864 and named Ellen; by now the family was living in Wollongong.

Very Sad Bereavement.

A very large circle of friends received a great shock when it became known that the wife of Mr. Elijah Robson had died of septic pneumonia on Wednesday afternoon at the Coledale Hospital. This lady had been ill for a few days prior to having been sent to the hospital on Monday. She was very well known, and, with her husband, was a great helper in patriotic matters, particularly in working for the welcomes extended to returned soldiers, and her efforts will be neatly missed. The deepest sympathy to Mr. Robson in his great loss. The deceased had been looking forward to the return of her soldier son before very long.

Mr. and Mrs. John E. Robson celebrated their golden wedding at their homes “Nethavale,” Ourimbah, on Monday last, many members of the family and relatives being present. Mr. and Mrs. Robson are both natives of the South Coast, Mr. Robson being a native of Wollongong, and Mrs. Robson of Kiama. Mr Robson's father was the first coal mine owner on the South Coast. Both were very respected, and popular citizens of the South Coast before coming to this district, and they have resided in the Wyong and Ourimbah districts for the past 25 years. Before they were married by the Rev. J. Nolan, Methodist Minister, at Surry Hills, Sydney, on April 19 1876. Mr and Mrs. Robson are held in the highest respect by all people they have come in contact with, and rank among our most popular and respected citizens. The children, of whom there are ten, are all living. They are all residing in this locality, and were present at the golden wedding to wish the best of good things to the old folks. The customary wedding breakfast was served, and toasts were made, many fine things being said to the old people's credit. We join with their many friends in wishing them both a long and happy life.

Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Robson, aged 79, a highly respected resident of the Ourimbah district, passed away in her sleep at her home, Nethervale, in Chittaway Road, Ourimbah, early on Sunday morning. When the late Mrs. Robson retired to rest on Saturday evening she was in good health, and her death was not discovered until 9.30 on Sunday.

The late Mrs. Robson and her husband, Mr. John. E. Robson, came to this district from the South Coast over 30 years ago. They first settled in the Wyong district, where they engaged in dairy farming for 15 years. Coming to the Ourimbah district nearly 20 years ago, they followed dairying pursuits at Palmdale, and about 10 years later they acquired an orchard property and went in for citrus culture. The late Mrs. Robson leaves a sorrowing husband and six sons and four, daughters. The family, to whom the deepest sympathy of the residents of the Ourimbah district has been extended are: Messrs William, John R., Jas., Edgar, Fred and Tom (Ourimbah), Mrs. Fred Russell (Ida), of Coogee, Mrs. W. Raynor (Blanche), of Leadville, Mrs. Todd (Lizzie), of Roseville, and Mrs. H. Chandler (Rose), of Grafton. There are 30 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

ROBYNS.-June 4, at her father's residence, Wollongong, the wife of John Robyns, of a daughter. The Sydney Morning Herald 11 June 1879


Mrs. Eleanor Robyns, late of Penkivil street, Bondi, who died on Saturday, was one of its oldest residents. A native of Holyhead, Wales, Mrs. Robyns, in 1854, sailed with her parents for Sydney in the vessel Lord Hungerford, which had an eventful voyage to Australia. After encountering severe weather in the Bay of Biscay, a fire broke out, causing a panic on board. More exciting still was when the boat went south, out of its course, amongst icebergs, and reached Sydney in a bad condition. Mrs. Robyns's father became superintendent of works for harbours and rivers, and he supervised the construction of the original harbour wall around Farm Cove. Mrs. Robyns was a pupil at Fort-street school when Miss Heydon, a sister of Judge Heydon, was its headmistress. Later the late Mrs. Robyns joined the teaching staff of the school at Waverley House, where Miss Amelia Hall was principal. She married Mr. John Robyns, a Welsh mining engineer, who was responsible for starting the first Welsh paper in Victoria. Mrs. Robyns was present at the Welsh National Eisteddfod on the occasion when William Morris Hughes, as a young man, won a prize for a five minutes' impromptu speech on “Myself.' At the same time Mrs. Robyns's husband, who died many years ago, won the prize for “self-culture.” She was a member of the Jersey-road Congregational Church for many years. She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. J. G. Cocks, of Bondi, Miss J. Robyns, and two sons, Messrs. H. P. and C. S. Robyns.

The funeral took place yesterday, after a service at Kinsela's Chapel, Darlinghurst, to Waverley Cemetery. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Tuesday 21 July 1936 p 8

Alfred Smith, Frederick Butler, and James Woods were charged with having, by wanton driving, caused grievous bodily harm to Clara Rodgers.

John W. Elliott saw them driving along at Fairy Meadow in the evening. They seemed to have little control over the horse and were driving all over the road. Was not prepared to say that any of them were drunk. Had no difficulty in passing them.

Charles McMahon, a boy, deposed to having met the accused about the same time. They were singing and sending the horse along. Did not think they were drunk.

…saw Mrs. Rodgers coming along in a buggy home to Balgownie at a slow trot; coming up behind her was a sulky with three men in it, they were going at a gallop ; the reins were hanging loosely ; heard one of them say ' Let her go ;' they smashed into Mrs. Rodgers' buggy and there was a capsize ; she was on her right side of the road ; got his buggy and brought

Clara Rodgers deposed as to the accident and her injuries. Dr. Lee deposed that Mrs. Rodgers had sustained a serious dislocation of the arm which would result in permanent injury.

He said it mattered not on which side of the road Mrs. Rodgers was travelling, the responsibility of avoiding collision rested upon the vehicle behind. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Saturday 10 March 1900 Page 12

The late Mrs. Rodgers was born at Bailey Field, Sheffield, England, and soon after her arrival in Australia 58 years ago, she settled at Wollongong, where she had resided ever since.

She was a keen member of the Church of England, and attended church regularly. She regularly attended the monthly Home League meetings of the Salvation Army in Wollongong.

She always kept a keen interest in the welfare of the fighting forces during war time, and during the first World War she knitted, over 100 pairs of socks and sent many parcels containing comforts to soldiers. She kept the same interest during the last world war, and received many letters of gratitude from military personnel.

Nine years ago she sustained a broken leg in a car accident and was confined to her bed for some months.

She never recovered from an illness which commenced eleven weeks ago.

She is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Tulford, of Sheffield, who is 79 years of age, and a cousin, Mary Bagshawe, also of England. Rev; R. C. M.

Late Mrs. Ross

One of the oldest residents of the district in the person of Mrs. Marion Ross, of Bellambi, died at Bulli Hospital on Saturday last; in her 81st. year. For many years the late Mrs. Ross, resided in Campbell street, Wollongong. She arrived in this State in 1883, a shipmate of hers being the late Mrs. Robert McCammon of First street, Wollongong, and it is a coincidence that Mrs. Ross died on the same date as Mrs. McCammon, with seven years between the two. They had been life-long friends. Mrs. Ross was a wonderful mother and a good neighbor in time of sickness, or trouble, always ready to give a helping hand. For the past, 34 years Mrs. Ross had resided with her husband and family at Gladstone street, Bellambi. Her husband survives, and there is one daughter (Mrs. Gibbeson, of Thirroul), and two sons, Percy and Herb.

The remains were interred in the Bulli cemetery (C. of E. portion) on , Monday afternoon, South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 13 November 1936 p 5

Death claimed another old identity on Tuesday night last in the person of Mrs. E. Rossborough, of Crown-st. She had been ailing somewhat of late from an affliction of the heart, but appeared to be in her usual health until within a few minutes of her death, which took place at about 8.30, when she passed peacefully away. Mrs. Rossborough was a native of Country Tyrone, Ireland, where she was born 80 years age. She came out to Australia with friends when she was 18 years of age, and came direct to Wollongong. She was married about a year afterwards to the late Mr. R. Rossborough, who predeceased her by many years. Her grown up family of three sons and one daughter are all in Wollongong, where they are well and favorably known. Mrs. Rossborough was of a quiet and retiring disposition, and was held in universal esteem by her very large circle of friends who sincerely mourn her loss. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon when, a large concourse followed the remains to their last resting place in the Presbyterian section of the general cemetery, the funeral service being read by the Rev. D. Mackay Barnet. It may be remarked that the deceased had been a worshipper in the Wollongong Church for over 60 years. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 3 June 1910 p 4

The death occurred last Friday of Mrs. Margaret Rossborough, an old and respected resident of Wollongong, who in the last war earned the title 'The Diggers' Friend,” owing to the work done by her on behalf of soldiers and patriotic efforts. Of later years she did not enjoy the best of health and was carefully attended by her daughter, Miss Rossborough. The late Mrs. Rossborough was born in Glasgow 69 years ago, and came to Australia with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Crearer, who took up their residence in Campbell-st., Wollongong. She was married 50 years ago to Mr. John Rossborough, who carried on business in Crown-st. with his brother. She is survived by two children, Mr. Jack Rossborough, of Tamworth, and Miss Elizabeth Rossborough, of Wollongong. The interment took place in the Wollongong cemetery on Saturday.

There is a death for an Annie Rossbridge in 1937 but she seems to be connected to Moyle and Gardner families.

Mrs. Bridget Rowland, wife of Mr. John Rowland, passed peacefully away at her late residence, Mittagong, on Tuesday, 5th May, from senile decay, at the age of 79 years. She was born at Miltown, Dublin, in the year 1835, and in 1857 landed in Sydney, where she resided till 1869. She then journeyed to the South Coast, where she married Mr. Rowland, and the couple celebrated their golden wedding in 1911. After residing on the coast for 30 years she removed to Mittagong, and with the exception of a few years spent at Kangaloon and Taree, had made it her home. She leaves a husband, one daughter (Mrs. Jas. Breen, Mittagong), three sons (Messrs. Charles Rowland, Burrawang, James, of Kangaloon, and George, of Sydney), and 22 grand-children to mourn their loss. The funeral took place at Bowral on Thursday, and was largely attended. The remains were interred in the R.C.   portion of the general cemetery, the burial service being read by the Rev. Father Martin, who commented on her Christian fortitude. Having personally known her, he was aware of her afflic- tion-the loss of her sight which she never fought against, and she had lived a life of virtue and goodness.

When Robert and Susan arrived in Bulli they did not have a chair to sit on, only boxes. The old nurse that attended Susan at Harry's birth gave them two chairs. When the Corrimal mine started there were only five houses in Corrimal so they had to live in a tent where the old Corrimal mine screens were. The little bit of furniture they had when they left Bulli all fitted on a tip dray. Susan made the tent from calico, later lined with newspaper, on a hand worked sewing machine. Later, Robert built on a block of land in what is now Wilga St, Corrimal. That house, now about 90 years old, is still occupied by a member of the family. Robert was the first President of the Corrimal Cricket Club, a member of the North Illawarra Council from 1902 to 1913 and Mayor from 1915 to 1918 as well as being a life member and Trustee of Corrimal Beach Park. Their last home was in Harbinger St, Corrimal.

Husband a miner.


Fifty years resident at Corrimal, Mrs. Susan Ruddock, of Railway st., passed away on Tuesday of last week. Born in England 81 years ago, she came to Australia over 60 years ago. She was the widow of the late Mr. Robert Ruddock, who predeceased her about nine years ago. Two daughters, Minnie (Mrs. Redman) and Florrie (Mrs. Williams) also predeceased her.

She is survived by two sons, Ernest and Henry (and William), and a daughter, Mabel (Mrs. Rawle, Corrimal).

The remains were interred on Thursday, following a service in St. Alban's Church of England, Corrimal. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 12 September 1947 p 9

At the advanced age of 78 years, the whole of which long period she resided in Wollongong, Mrs. D. F. Rudkin passed peacefully away at her residence, Market Street, on Wednesday morning last. The deceased lady had been practically an invalid for some years, but despite this fact she was never known to complain, and always presented a bright and smiling front to all those with whom she came in contact. Her cheerful and kindly personality won for her a wide circle of friends. After the death of her husband, some eighteen years ago, she was associated for some time with the business life of Wollongong, but failing health compelled her to relinquish business, and she lived retired at her late residence until the time of her death. Mrs. Rudkin was a member of one of the pioneer families of the Illawarra district (the Copas family), the only surviving member of the original family being Mrs. J. P. Galvin of Smith St. The funeral, which took place yesterday, was a representative one, the remains being removed from the home to St. Francis Xavier's Church, where an impressive service was conducted by the Rev. Father Doherty, the same gentleman perform- in the last sad rites at the graveside, in the Roman Catholic cemetery. The pall bearers were the sons and nephews of the deceased lady. Two sons and two daughters are left to mourn the loss of a mother who, by an up-right charitable and Christian life, has left behind an example of which any family might well be proud. We join with the wide circle of friends in offering our condolence. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 24 February 1933 p 11

Husband living at Helensburgh in 1915 when son enlisted.


Eliza Jane Weeks, formerly Fox, sued for a divorce from Alfred Weeks, a miner, on the ground of adultery.

The petitioner, who was represented by Mr. White, instructed by Mr. J. W. Abigail, deposed to having married the respondent in May, 1892, at Wollongong, according to the Anglican rites. They lived together until March, 1906. There was a ball at Balgownie, and she heard that her husband was present at it with a miner's wife.

The day after the ball there were sports at Helensburgh, and petitioner saw her husband there with the same woman. Petitioner accused him of having taken the woman to the ball, and he admitted it. On the day she left him they quarrelled over the woman, and he said he liked her. Petitioner said to him that if he didn't give her up she'd go, and he said, 'Very well; be out by Saturday.

Mr. White: You heard something about a divorce case? — I did.
In which your husband's name was mixed up?-Yes.
After that you saw a, solicitor? — Yes.

Jane Davies, a married woman, living with her husband at Helensburgh, said that on Easter Monday she saw the respondent and the woman referred to coming out of a house in Helensburgh together. She had seen them coming out of the same house on other occasions.

A decree nisi was granted, to be moved absolute in six months. Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931) Thursday 11 June 1908 p 7

Another of the pioneer settlers of the district has been removed from our midst in the death of Mrs. John Rumble, which occurred at Bowral the latter end of last week. Though not altogether unexpectedly her end came rather suddenly, and under somewhat similar circumstances to that of her late husband, who, 2½ years ago, was found dead in bed. The late Mrs. Rumble had been ailing for some time, and on different occasions neighbours, who attended, to her comfort, found it necessary to call in a doctor. She evidently expected that her end would come suddenly, as she informed her neighbours that if they found her bedroom blind down late of a morning they would know something was wrong.

The blind not-being lifted on Friday morning caused Mrs. Moore (who lives opposite) some anxiety, and subsequent investigations led to her communicating with the police.

The house was then broken open, and the old lady was found dead in bed, having apparently passed peacefully away in her sleep. The deceased, who was 71 years of ago, leaves no children, but she has two brothers and a sister in this State— Messrs. Vidler of Jamberoo, and Mrs. Taylor of Bulli. The interment took place in the Methodist cemetery at Burradoo on Saturday, Robertson Advocate (NSW : 1894 - 1923) Tuesday 3 April 1906 p 2

RUSSELL.— January . 10th, 1923; at Dalritidn, Greenwich Road, Greenwich, Lizzie, dearly loved wife of Charles Coffey Russell, formerly of Wollongong, solicitor, Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 12 January 1923 p 2


As will be seen by our advertising columns, Mrs. Russell, wife of Mr. C. C. Russell, the well-known solicitor of Greenwich, and formerly of Wollongong, passed away at her residence, Greenwich, on Wednesday, January 10. Mrs. Russell had been in delicate health for some time past, and bore her sufferings with exemplary patience. Her end was peace.

The remains were interred in the Field of Mars Cemetery on January 11, the Rev. J. H. Willcockson and the Rev. Donald McKay Barton officiating at the grave.

Mr. and Mrs. Russell celebrated their golden wedding on December 8, 1920, and had therefore passed 52 years together. Mr. Russell is an old and valued contributor to “The Watchman,” and is also well known in Sydney for other literary work. The fullest sympathy is felt for him by a wide circle of friends.

A Divorce Suit for £10,000 Damages SYDNEY, Tuesday.

Judging by the very large crowd which attended at the Divorce Court, Mr. Justice Windeyer presiding, an interesting divorce case was begun this morning. The petitioner is Alfred George Russell, the well-known licensee of the Royal Hotel, Kiama, and the respondent is his wife, Ellen Russell. The co-respondents are Robert Henry Stevenson and John Hunt, both well-known residents of Kiama. The parties have been married five years, and there have been three children of the marriage. The petitioner claims £10,000 damages. Stevenson gives a general denial of the charges, the petitioner conniving at the immoral offences committed. Barrier Miner (Broken Hill, NSW : 1888 - 1954) Tuesday 11 June 1889

IN DIVORCE BEFORE Mr. Justice Windeyer. RUSSELL v. RUSSELL In this suit, which was commenced on Tuesday last, the petitioner, Alfred George Russell, of Kiama, publican, applied for a divorce from Ellen Russell, his wife, on the grounds of her alleged adultery with co-respondents Robert Harry Stevenson, store-keeper, of Kiama, and John Hunt, Brewer, of the same town.

(Legal representatives for Mr Russell and Mr Stevenson) There was no appearance for or on the part of the respondent or the co-respondent John Hunt.

The petitioner, claimed 5000 pounds damages from each of the co-respondents and the co-respondent Stevenson in his affidavit in reply entered a general denial to the allegation of adultery on his part, and further alleged connivance the part of the petitioner. Alfred George Russell being called, proved his marriage with the respondent at her father's residence, Princess-street, Sydney, on October 17, 1883, he being at that time a commission agent in Sydney. Subsequently they lived at Kiama, where the petitioner purchased and kept a hotel. Their family consisted of three children. He first became aware of his wife's conduct on February 2 last, when he found her in a compromising situation in the back premises of the hotel with the co-respondent Hunt, who asked to be forgiven, but the petitioner struck him and he (Hunt) then went away. Petitioner accused his wife in front of the sergeant of police of intimacy with Hunt. She at first denied it, but subsequently confessed. He ordered her from the house and she left, but returned next day for her clothes. On the 25th of that month the respondent again came to the house and made the confession referred to. It was to the effect that two years ago, while petitioner was in Sydney, she had improper intimacy with Stevenson and that the intimacy had continued for some time. She also confessed that she believed the youngest child to be Stevenson's. It was certainly unlike either of the other children. The intimacy with Hunt she also confessed.

A question was here raised: whether it was worthwhile going into this part of the case- that is as to Hunt; Mr. Ralston said it was material, as it might tend to show what kind of a woman the respondent was. It was accordingly agreed to proceed with the evidence, The petitioner, continuing, said his wife admitted that the intimacy with Hunt began about four months after the intimacy with Stevenson, Hunt came to the hotel and told her that he knew of her intimacy with Stevenson, and unless she gave way to him he would inform her husband. She consequently yielded. Hunt was one of a firm of Hunt Bros., brewers and cordial manufacturers, and he (petitioner) was on friendly terms with him. Served the co respondent Hunt with a, copy of the citation in Pitt-street; Sydney, and had not seen him since.

To Mr. Barton: His (petitioner's) wife was not in any business when he married her. Knew a Mrs. John Honey. Do not remember whether I saw her on February 24 that was the day after he made the discovery referred to in the yard. Certainly did not tell Mrs; Honey he knew of his (witness') wife's goings on. Had received an anonymous letter about, 14 months before, a very bad letter, involving the names of several persons and winding up with a declaration that his (petitioner's) wife was then in Sydney with John Hunt; but the latter was in the bar of the hotel at the time witness received the letter and he tore it up. Never while in his rational senses did he say that if he got damages out of Stevenson he would marry his wife again. He might have said so while he was in a mad state, but not in his sober senses. Did not say to Jas. Hunt that he was sorry he had got his (Hunt's) brother, and would if he got damages against him return them, as Stevenson was the man he wanted to get at. He could not have said such a thing. At that time he had not the slightest suspicion of Stevenson, Knew Mr Price, a clergyman, at Kiama, Did not tell him that five months before he received an anonymous letter imputing his wife's fidelity.

The witness was further cross examined at length with a view to show that the petitioner must have had knowledge of his wife's proceedings, which it was made to appear were much talked of in the town. Jas. Walker, a groom in the employ of the petitioner, said he had frequently seen Mrs. Russell in the back of the hotel, in the stable and other places under suspicious circumstances with Stevenson, and had frequently seen her go to Stevenson's store at night. Had also seen her upon occasion with Hunt.

Mr. Wood a storekeeper, gave evidence to the effect that Mrs. Russell had made much the same confession to him as she had made to her husband. A number of additional witnesses, male and female were called to show that there had been intimacy between the respondent and the correspondents.

Chas. Walter Brayne, a sergeant in the mounted police, said on the night of February 22 he was called by the petitioner to put his wife out of the house on the ground of her misbehaviour as already stated. He (witness) said to Russell, “Why you must have been blind,” to which Russell replied “No, I have not been blind; it is not this fellow I want to catch, but that-fellow down the road.” He also stated that he had received an anonymous letter some time ago concerning his wife's carryings on, but that he did not believe it, as she had been more than usually loving lately. In another conversation which witness had with Russell the latter said he would go for a divorce against the pair of them., but that if his wife behaved herself he might marry her again. When witness was served by the petitioner with it subpoena in this case Russell told him that he had seen things going on in the house on the part of his wife that were improper.

Being cross-examined witness said petitioner did seem like a man about to go out of his mind when he called him in to put his wife out. But for a brother of Hunt's volunteering to remain in the house and look after Russell, witness would not have left the house, so excited did Russell appear, and he expressed himself very bitterly against Hunt and Stevenson. He went about for a few days like a man in a dream, Owen Malone, a mail contractor, said the petitioner told him that he did not want to catch Hunt, but Stevenson.

To the Bench: Could not say whether the petitioner knew what was going on and winked at it. Told Russell that he must have been a great fool if he did not see it long ago. Could not say if Russell know anything about it.

To Mr Ralston: It was common talk in the town about the respondent's behaviour with both Stevenson and Hunt. Other witnesses gave similar evidence.

Evidence in rebuttal behalf of the petitioner was taken, and council addressed the jury.

Yesterday his Honor reviewed the evidence given, and then remarked that if connivance were made out in any case there was an end of the case. A man could not consent to his wife's adultery with one man and then turn round upon another man and say to him that he did not have consent in his case. Anyone who came into this court must do so with clean hands. His Honor then pointed out the meaning of 'connivance' as laid down by legal authorities. There must be assent and acquiescence in the misconduct of the wife to establish the plea of connivance. Mere stolidity, more of want of perception, being a softy and infatuated with his wife, was not enough to establish connivance; and: it was for the jury to say whether that kind of connivance which was necessary to constitute connivance in law was established this case. There was no evidence to show that from anything passing before the eyes of the petitioner, he ought to have concluded that adultery would follow. His Honor referred to the evidence given by the witness Talbet, and characterised it as entirely unworthy of credence, Another class of evidence was brought forward to endeavour to show that this was a trumped up suit with a view to getting damages. That was the evidence as to expressions made use of by him after the night of the 23rd. The question for the jury to consider was whether he had known of what had been going on previously, and whether his conduct was such, after he found out what was going on, as to lead them to believe that the man was almost driven distracted at having discovered his wife's infidelity. Should the jury find that adultery had been committed with the co-respondents, it was for them to assess the amount of damages. The jury then retired, and it will be seen from the telegram appended that heavy damages have been awarded.

Damages were awarded against each of the co-respondents of 1500 pounds.

RUSSELL— In loving memory of my dear wife, Flora Janet, who departed this life, July 25th, 1919.

One of the best that God could send,
Beloved by all, a faithful friend,
Galled home from those who deeply love,
To gain a glorious life above.
With aching hearts, with tearful eyes,
“We linger where our dear one lies,
And breathe those sacred words once more,

Not lost, but only gone before.

'Inserted by her loving husband, Henry Russell.'

RUSSELL.— In ever loving memory of our darling mother. Flora Janet Russell, who passed away July 25th, 1919, aged 58.

In Helensburgh's lonely graveyard.
Beneath its lonely sod.
There rests my darling mother,
Sleeping in peace with God.
And when my heart doth long for her,
I seem to hear her say,
Keep a brave heart, my daughter,
We'll meet again some day..

DEPARTURE OF MR JAS. RUTLEDGE AND FAMILY. A very successful valedictory tea and public meeting was tendered to Mr., Mrs. and Miss Rutledge in the Gerringong Wesleyan Church on Tuesday evening last. The friends sat down at a quarter to eight to a liberal repast, prepared and super-intended by ladies connected with the Church. The Rev. J. W. Moore presided; and after singing and prayer, he stated the object of the meeting. He expressed a high appreciation of the character and services of Mr. Rutledge. For 40 years past he had lived and labored among them, and his consistent life and earnest efforts for the good of the people had gained for him their respect and esteem. Such a gathering as that must be very grateful to Mr. Rutledge and family, as it bore eloquent testimony to the esteem in which they were held. They wished them God speed and every success in their new sphere.

Mr. Dives said he had known Mr. Rutledge for 10 years, and had always found him a straightforward man, a good companion, and a true friend. Mr. John James said he had known Mr. Rutledge for the past 20 years. Not only had he worked for the Church, but he was always foremost in seeing the good of the district as a citizen. He bore high testimony to his character. Mr. Rutledge and his family would carry with them the esteem and good wishes of the community. Mr. M. J. Hindmarsh spoke of Mr. Rutledge as being on excellent neighbour; he had set a good example by his integrity and probity; and he was a man who took an interest in the good of the community. The Rev. W. F. Oakes spoke of the diligence, regularity and fidelity of Mr. and Mrs.Rutledge in Church life and work. He wished them God-speed. The Chairman, on behalf of the Church and congregation, and people of the district, in a few appropriate words presented Mr. Rutledge with a beautiful silver tea and coffee service. Mr. Rutledge feelingly replied. He could not express the feelings created by their kindness and sympathy as shown in the words that had been spoken that night and in the beautiful present tendered him., He had lived among them for 40 years, and would never forget Gerringong, for here he and his wife had started life together, and here his children had been born and reared., They had had times of joy and sorrow, and had met with uniform kindness from the people of the district. They had expressed altogether too high an estimate of his services. He wished he had done better. He thanked them from his heart. He referred specially to the kindness of the ladies in going to so much trouble to get up the tea, and again thanked them for their present, which he would greatly prize. The choir sang two or three pieces during the meeting, and the proceedings were brought to a close by the singing of “God be with you till we meet again” and the benediction pronounced by the chairman. At the close of the meeting many of the friends examined the present and expressed their admiration of the same.

The death occurred on Saturday last of Mrs. Jane Rutledge, wife of Mr. J. Rutledge, of Keerrong. The late Mrs. Rutledge was in her usual health up to the time of her death, which occurred suddenly, the cause being heart failure. A sad feature was the absence of the husband and eldest daughter of the deceased, they having left on the preceding Monday for a trip to Sydney and the South Coast. Keen regret is expressed in the district, as by her kindly and unassuming disposition Mrs. Rutledge had endeared herself to all with whom she had come in contact. Deep sympathy is felt for the bereaved husband and family. Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Wednesday 30 March 1927 p 5

On Easter Sunday morning, Mrs. Sarah Rutledge, late of Dunoon, and lately residing with her son Robert, at Thornleigh, Sydney, passed, as in a quiet sleep, into the eternal Homeland, at the ripe age of four-score and nine years.

Born at Roscor, Kilskeery, County Tyrone, Ireland, she received her early training in a Christian home. She was a niece of the Rev. John Porter, Methodist minister, and of the late William Porter, of Derry, Kilskeery, a local preacher of great power, and a cousin of the late John Brian, Methodist minister. During her girlhood days (Miss Sarah Brian) she was a great worked, for the Missionary Society, and one of her greatest treasures was a Morocco bound copy of Wesley's hymns, which was presented to her on the eve of her departure, in 1877, for Australia. This was presented to her by the Wesleyan Missionary Committee, for valuable services rendered   as a missionary collector. Arriving in Sydney after a five months' trip in a sailing ship, she went to Mt. Keira, and for some years resided with her late sister Lucy, and her brothers, the late Robert Brian, of Mount Keira; and the late William Brian, of Dunoon, who, with the late W. H. Gray, administered the Warren Estate. At Mount Keira, in 1881, she married the late John McGregor Rutledge; she resided with her husband on their farm at Mount Kembla for eleven years, then, in 1892, she went with her husband and family to live on a farm which they had purchased in that district, her husband passing to the better life in 1900. She was left to care for her three boys, and with the responsibility of working the farm; but during her hour of trial she knew in whom to put her trust. All through her life Mrs. Rutledge was a loyal Methodist. She loved her Bible, and studied its pages, and especially its choicest parts. The custom of family worship was never neglected in the family circle, and in the earlier days at Dunoon. Her home was associated Dunoon her home was associated with the Christian Endeavour and young men's class meetings, and the ministers were always sure of a generous welcome and hospitality. It was always a great pleasure for Mrs. Rutledge to entertain the ministers of her circuit, and during her 36 years' residence in Dunoon, she had the pleasure of knowing and entertaining every minister in the Lismore District. She was deeply interested in her country's well-being, and had very decided views as to the evil influences which were injurious to it and often expressed indignation at the industrial unrest and strife, she being a believer in peace and good will. Seven years ago she left Dunoon and came to live with her son Robert, at Thornleigh. Owing to failing health, Mrs. Rutledge was unable to attend public worship, but was able, by means of the radio, to enjoy the services, which were broadcast, twice each Sabbath. She always enjoyed the minister's visit, and would often mention what a blessing her early Christian training had been to her. She was a Christian woman, who found her deepest she fought the battle of life well. Her funeral took place on the 4th instant at Dunoon. A service was held in the old home, 'Cedarville,' conducted by the Rev. R. C. Barlow, Lidcombe, and Rev. L. M. K. Mills. Lismore, and the burial service was read by the Rev. Mr. Barlow, assisted by Rev.' Mr. Mills. Mrs. Rutledge has left three sons to mourn her loss–William George Stuart, Lismore; Robert John Warren, Thornleigh, and Charles Porter Ried, Dunoon.— R.J.W.R. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 14 April 1934

They had a family of three sons and left Wollongong for Dunoon on the North Coast on 10th April, 1893. They were presented with a Bible, still in the family’s possession, to mark the occasion of their departure after having resided in the district for 35 years.
