It is reported that the prisoner has been subject to fits of mental aberration. She is a married woman under 30years of age, has had several children, is thin in features, of average height, and more like a very common-place servant maid than a lady The Maitland Mercury and Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893) Thursday 2 February 1860 p 3


Sarah Sadler was indicted for that she, on the 18th day of January last, at Wollongong, did feloniously kill and murder a certain infant child-name, to the Attorney-General unknown.

The prosecution on the part of the Crown was conducted by the Solicitor-General. The prisoner was defended by Mr. Isaacs and Mr. Dalley-the attorney for the defence being Mr. E. J. Cory,

The Solicitor-General addressed the jury, and gave an outline of the circumstances of this very painful case. They were of such a peculiar nature that it may, perhaps, be undesirable to do more than to furnish a brief statement of the particulars.

It appeared that a married woman named Brough, on the morning of the 18th of January last, had seen Sarah Sadler going home towards her residence from a neighbouring paddock under such circumstances as induced her to surmise that something was wrong. Having spoken to two other married women, she and they proceeded to the paddock whence the woman Sadler appeared to have come, and there discovered that which went to confirm them in their apprehensions as to what had occurred. They accordingly communicated their suspicions to Mr. Hildebrand, the chief constable of the district, and furnished him with the proofs which had led them to come to the conclusion that some birth of a child had secretly taken place. The constables and these three women accordingly proceeded to the same paddock (the one from which Sadler appeared to have come) on the following day, Thursday, the 19th January. There a naked infant child was, after some delay, found, lying in a sheltered spot amongst the scrub, and partially concealed with boughs. It was just alive, and was covered with ants. The women and the constable (whose humane and judicious conduct received a well merited tribute of approbation from the learned Judge) took the poor babe away to Mrs. Brough's house, where it was, under Dr. Lambert's orders, carefully attended to by Mrs. Burrell, who did all a mother's duty towards it until it died at a quarter past five that evening, The child was so far alive that, when placed in a warm bath, it groaned and opened its eyes. When first discovered it was lying on its side, and there was a piece of rag rolled up and stuffed into its mouth. Thus far the evidence of Mrs. Brough, which was fully substantiated by the other witnesses. The evidence of Mr. Thomas Hildebiand corroborated Mrs. Brough's statements, and disclosed facts which tended to show that the prisoner Sadler had been very recently confined ; of this important proof was adduced from a discovery of something hidden in the garden, or rather the ground, adjacent to the house of Easton (the stepfather of the prisoner), where the prisoner resided. The prisoner on being spoken to about all this, made use of this remarkable expression-“If you will give me the child I'll take care of it,” or (as another witness expressed it), “ If you will bring me the child I will bring it up, and own it.” Mrs. Ann Jane Baxter, Mrs. Ann Burrell, and a constable named Edwin Searle, stated various circumstances incidental to the case, and all strongly corroborative of the above general narrative. Thomas Easton, also, the husband of the prisoner's mother, confirmed the statement of Brough as to the apparent pregnancy of the woman Sadler, and as to the state in which she returned home at four o'clock in the afternoon of the 18th January. It seemed that he had been led to suppose by the prisoner and her mother that no birth had taken place. He had known the prisoner for three and twenty years, and considered her “ flighty” never quite in her right mind,“ ” She was,”he said, “more like a madwoman than anything else when she came back to his house on the afternoon of the 18th January.” The evidence of George Proade Lambert, a duly qualified medical practitioner, confirmed the depositions of the previous witnesses as regarded the child found, The child had never got warm after it was found and before its death ; he could tell by the state of its body that it had been born some hours before he first saw it; the paddock referred to was 250 yards from Easton's house ; the prisoner was weak but rational when he saw her after the discovery of the child. Dr. Lambert's evidence was clear and positive as to that which he had been called upon to examine-found near Easton’s house. It proved distinctly that a birth must have taken place. The prisoner and her mother admitted that something had occurred. Their account of what had taken place was obviously untrue, and inconsistent with what he saw.

Mr. Isaacs addressed the jury for the defence at considerable length, in an able and highly argumentative speech, he urged the jury to dismiss from their minds any preconceived prejudice, and to judge of the case from the evidence, as it had been laid before them. He desired them, first to consider whether it had been satisfactorily proved that the prisoner, had ever been delivered of a child at all. Secondly (assuming that it was her child that had been found), whether she had left the infant where it was found, under circumstances which amounted (for reasons which he stated) either to manslaughter, or to concealment of birth ; and thirdly, whether-supposing the infant to be her child, and to have been so left she was not labouring under that insanity which often developed itself at such a time as this had boen supposed to have been especially as there was clearly evidence to sustain the supposition, that the prisoner was always more or less weak in her intellect. In support of this view the learned counsel quoted Taylor's Medical Jurisprudence (page 913) and other authorities, and argued the point at a considerable length upon certain principles of medical jurisprudence. He concluded by earnestly entreating the jury to be fully satisfied as to the three points which he had desired them to weigh in the prisoner's favour-and in eloquent and moving terms besought them to take a merciful view of the case.

The Solicitor General did not reply.

The jury retired for deliberation, and were for some time unable to agree. Ultimately they re- appeared in Court, and returned a verdict of Not Guilty.

His Honor said that the prisoner had had a narrow escape, and that he trusted her escape would not have the effect of rendering the crime of infanticide more prevalent than he regretted to see it was at present. There had been several such cases for trial at this sittings. However, as she had been found not guilty, the prisoner must be discharged.

The prisoner was thereupon discharged from custody, and her mother. Rosanna Easton (awaiting trial for having been implicated with her daughter in this case), was also, on the motion of Mr. Isaacs, discharged on her husband's recognisance. The Sydney Morning Herald 14 February 1860

Crime: Stealing a watch

CHARLOTTE CAMP was indicted for stealing, on the 23rd of August , 1 watch, value 7l., the goods of Joseph Chaffe , in the dwelling-house of Joseph Ingram .

JOSEPH CHAFFE. On the 23rd of August I lodged in Upper Charlotte-street, Fitzroy-square , in the house of Joseph Ingram. My watch hung by the side of the mantel-piece, in my own room, on the second floor - I went out about eight o'clock in the morning, leaving my wife at home; I returned in the evening, and it was gone - I went next morning with my wife in search of the prisoner, and found her, after much inquiry, crossing Foley-street; I did not know her, but my wife said, “That's her;” I crossed over, and charged her with stealing my watch - she denied it several times, and I said if she would tell all about it, I would forgive her.

WILLIAM LANE . I live at No. 12, Charlotte-street, Fitzroy-square - I have known the prisoner by sight for about six months. On the 23rd of August I saw her at the corner of Little Ogle-street, talking to a woman - she asked if I was out of work; I said Yes, and asked who that young woman was - she said it was a young woman who was going to pawn a watch for her; she then asked if I wanted to buy one - I said No, but I dare say I could sell it, and asked where she got it; she said a gentleman gave it to her for sleeping with her all night, as he had no money - this was about half-past eight o'clock in the morning; I asked to look at it - she said she would go home and fetch it, and meet me in half an hour; I met her in about three quarters of an hour, at the corner of Riding-house-lane - she gave it to me; I told her I had but 11s. about me, which I gave her, and asked what she wanted for it - she said she did not know how much; I said I would give her 3l. 10s. for it, and pay the rest by instalments - I gave her half a sovereign and a shilling; she asked if I would have any drink - I had half a glass of grog; she gave me 2s. to keep for her, and I left her with the young woman - she said she was going to the play, and I went with her that night; I was never in her company before, but knew her by passing her of a morning as I went to work - I gave the watch to the prosecutor's wife.

ROBERT KNOWLES . I am an officer. I received the watch from the inspector of my division.
JOSEPH CHAFFE . This is my watch, and cost me 7l. 7s. three or four years ago.
WILLIAM LANE . I believe this to be the watch I had from her; it was in my possession two days.

The prisoner handed in a Written paper, stating that lane had taken the watch for her, she having informed him it had been given her by a gentleman, and that he had pretended to her that he had sold it to a Jew for 11s.

GUILTY of stealing to the value of 99s. only . Aged 18.

We regret to have to record the death of Mrs. Solway, the wife of Mr. Solway, of Nowra Hill. Mrs. Solway was ill only one week, and died on Wednesday last of pneumonia. She was a very old resident of the district, as also is her husband, and was well known and much esteemed by neighbours for her kind and benevolent disposition. She was a most affectionate mother, and was strongly attached to her family, several of whom are grown up and occupy respectable positions in society.

In all the deceased had led an exemplary life. She was a consistent member of the Roman Catholic Church, and the large cortege that followed the remains to the place of interment at the Roman Catholic cemetery on Thursday was sufficient evidence of the esteem in which the deceased was held by a large circle of friends and acquaintance. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Solway and family in their bereavement. The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser (NSW : 1891 - 1937) Saturday 28 October 1893 p 2

Mrs. F. Sandon, sen.

The death of Mrs. F. Sandon, sen., which occurred at her late residence, Campbell-street, early this week, removed from the Wollongong district one of its most popular residents, who by her kindly nature and upright life had endeared herself to all with whom she came in contact. The late Mrs. Sandon will be better known to the older residents as Miss Charlotte Croft, daughter, of the late Mr. W. Croft, who conducted business in Wollongong for a large number of years, and who by his splendid character and conscientious dealings left behind him a name of which any family might be justly proud: The late Mrs Sandon lived for the major portion of her life in the Wollongong district, where her many charitable and neighbourly actions will long; remain as a monument to her memory, As a wife and mother the deceased lady left nothing to be desired; and her splendid example has been reflected in her family who are held in the highest esteem in the localities in which they reside. …

To her sorrowing husband, Mr. F. Sandon, and her children, Mr. F. Sandon junr. (Brighton-le-Sands), and Mrs. E. Heininger, Wollongong), and her brothers, Messrs. J; and A. Croft, (of Wollongong) we join with their large host of friends in offering our sympathy in their irreparable loss. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 3 September 1937 p 9

'When were you married'' her counsel asked.
'April the5th 1899,' was the reply.
Mr. Justice James: 'Why, that’s today's date. Hadn't you noticed it was your wedding anniversary?
The witness said the fact had escaped her.
His Honor: 'I see, you were married at fifteen. you signed your certificate in a real schoolgirl hand. too. I suppose you don't write much like that now.

What was that the reason for being married by special lisence — Solicitor the Petitioner. 'Apparently the Bishopu of Graftom Married them. It says here he got three Guineas.

The petitioner obtained a decree nisi against Henry Saunders, on the ground of desertion. The evidence showed that after a series of quarrels he left her at Wollongong in 1916. She obtained a maintenance order for two children, on which he paid for 18 weeks, after which he disappeared without leaving a trace. She had since supported herself by needlework.

Death by Drowning. — It is our painful duty to record this week the death by drowning of Johanna Soyers, who had been, for some time past, a resident here.

The circumstances of her death, as disclosed at the inquest, are thus given in the Empire of the 20th June; — Johanna Soyers was found floating under the Phoenix Wharf, on Wednesday morning last.

The deceased was 48 years of age, was married, the mother of 4 children, and resides at Kiama with her husband a stonemason. It appeared from the evidence of Mr. David Woodhouse of the Australian Inn Parramatta street, that the deceased, who was his sister, had lately come to Sydney with a Mrs. Cooke on business; and that on Tuesday night, at 9 o'clock, she, in company with her friend, got into the omnibus to go to the steamer Nora Creina that was advertised to go to Kiama. He and other friends endeavoured to dissuade them from going, since the night was so stormy, but they persisted and went away.

He heard nothing more of them till Mrs. Cooke came next morning, and asked him if he had seen his sister.

The chief mate of the steamer deposed to finding the body of the deceased under the wharf; and the watchman employed at night swore that on the night in question he had a coal fire burning, elevated five feet above the wharf besides a lantern in which was a light, but he did not see the woman or bear anybody fall into the water, or cry out for help. The wharf has no railing or protection, and he had seen sober persons fall off the stage leading to the steamer for want of a hand rail. Mrs. Cooke could not state how deceased met with her death, they got out of the omnibus together, and the witness sheltered herself for a few minutes near the Clarence Hotel, whilst deceased went to look after her parasol, which she had left in the 'bus. Witness never saw her alive after that. Dr. Smith, who saw the body in the Infirmary, deposed that death was caused by suffocation; there was an abrasion of the skin on the nose and chin, which might have been produced by falling, but there were no marks of violence on the body. The jury found upon this testimony that Johanna Soyers came to her death by drowning, but how there was no evidence to show. They also stated, that they could not avoid remarking upon the unprotected condition of the wharf in general, and trusted that steps would be taken to make it more secure, for if the wharf had been protected and better lighted, death might have been avoided.

Came as part of the push to establish a wine growing industry in Australia. Many of the people who immigrated under this scheme from the wine growing areas of Germany stated they were ‘vine dressers’ on their immigration record. All would have had some experience at vine dressing but for many it was a way to get to Australia and not their primary occupation. All these immigrants had to be married and under 45 years old.

IT is with deep regret that we announce the dead of Mrs Schubert, wife of Mr P Schubert of this town, which sad event took place during the early hours of Thursday night last. The deceased lady, who had reached the age of 42 years, had been a great sufferer for some years, and especially during the past nine or ten months, and although her demise was in no way unexpected of late, still will leave a blank which cannot be filled in the home of her sorrowing husband and four children, two boys and two girls, three of whom are very young. During the few years Mrs Schubert had been a resident of Kiama she gained many friends and was highly respected and esteemed by all and universal sympathy is felt for those bereved.

SNAKE BITE.-On Friday last, the daughter of Mrs. Scott aged two years, of Mount Brandon Jamberoo, was bitten by a large snake on the back of the fore arm. It appears from the statement of another child some years older, that they were playing near a cabbage-tree stump, when the snake put out its head and bit the child, Dr. Nolan, on hearing of the occurrence, at once hastened to the child's assistance. We learn that the little sufferer is now quite recovered. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Thursday 11 October 1866 p 2

MRS MARY SCOTT Aged 83 years

Through the death of Mrs. Scott there has been removed from the community of Gerringong one whose christian character has been a pattern to the community in which she has lived for over 60 years. Troublous times she passed through, but she faced life with fortitude and courage even the great blow in the earlier years of the death of Elizabeth the youngest child and home companion who died early in her married life.

Her reminiscences of Gerringong were interesting history., She with her husband passed through the terrible experience of the great fire in Gerringong shortly after she came to the country.

They watched their home and possessions burn in the conflagration that destroyed many homes.

From the inception of the Gerringong Council, until a few years ago when the Memorial Hall was built and the Council shifted its quarters she acted as caretaker of the building in which she resided and kept a little shop-more for the company it afforded than for the remuneration it gave, for she delighted in social chat with friend or stranger.

The serenity of her benign face, so soft and gentle, through which her kindly spirit shone, attracted many and year after year visitors to Gerringong made the little shop a meeting place to her pleasure, for she loved to be remembered.

Her hospitality was a wonderful thing, it was her greatest joy to give it to friend or stranger, or even to a weary tramp passing by, humping his bluey.

Those who appreciated it and the warmth of kindness behind it, feel that Gerringong is the poorer for the loss of the kindly spirit that was hers, and the warmth of friendly feeling that greeted and enwrapped all those honored by her affection and. regard when they entered her little home.

She was a pillar of the Methodist Church, a consistent attendant when health allowed. In the celebration of its 50th Jubilee in 1920 she was given an honored place (for she had been identified with its history for 50 years) and her portrait appeared in the historic memento printed to commemorate the occasion.

Though she had no one of her own to live with neighbours and friends in Gerringong were not few or far between.,

Never a day passed but she was remembered-for years the kindness of

Mrs. O'Brien has been a daily duty, undertaken by her with Mrs. Neely and Mrs. Wiliamson, neighbours on either side, attentiveness itself-especially since her health through a failing heart had weakened. Miss Morrow, too, coming as a friend to kindly care for her in case of illness. Dr. Corner has given kindness, also medical attention and care, and though relatives have tried repeatedly to get her to live with them her independent spirit would not agree and the wish has been given her of passing away in the home of many years, which the Council gave as long as she should live.

The death occurred in Coffs Harbor District Hospital on Monday night of Mrs. Mary Maria Florence Scott, widow of the late W. S. Scott, formerly of the South Coast- and more recently of Nana Glen, who was a councillor of the Dorrigo shire for some years.

Mrs. Scott was born at Kangaroo Valley, on the South Coast, 66 years ago and spent her girlhood days there. After her marriage to Mr. Scott at Berry 42 years ago she returned with her husband to reside at Kangaroo Valley, where they were engaged in dairy farming. ,

They came to the North Coast 18 years ago and acquired the 'Edgefern' property at Nana Glen, where the family have since resided, being among the most prominent citizens of the district. Both deceased and her late husband were renowned for their hospitality, and 'Edgefern' has been noted in that respect.

Though she had been a sufferer during the past 12 years from blood pressure, deceased never complained, but cheerfully carried out her duties about her home, to which she was greatly devoted. On several occasions she had been a patient in Coff's District Hospital, each time recovering sufficiently to enable her to return home.

Last Saturday afternoon she suffered a severe stroke and became unconscious. She was, taken to hospital by ambulance and died as stated without regaining consciousness.

Three sons and five, daughters survive. The sons are Messrs. James (Coramba), Norman (Nana Glen) and Flemming (with the A.I.F.). Mrs. J. W. Frank (Coramba), Mrs. B. C. Barnier (Southgate) ; and Misses Isobel, Margaret and , Elizabeth . home) are the daughters. There are five grandchildren. Miss S. Erwin (88), of Nowra, is a sister of deceased and the only surviving member of the family Mrs. W. Ingram, Coff's Harbor (sister-in-law) is the only surviving member of the late Mr Scott's family.

HANSON, LYDIA. — Anyone knowing her whereabouts please communicate with her mother, Margaret Hanson, Balgownie Post-office, Illawarra Line, New South Wales. She left Australia when a child; last heard of in Canada 17 years ago._ English and American papers please copy. The Daily Telegraph (Sydney, NSW : 1883 - 1930) Wednesday 8 April 1903 p 12


Aromance in real life had a happy termination recently, when a long-lost daughter and mother were restored to each other after a lapse, of over 25 years. Some 28 years ago, Mrs. Screens, of Balgownie (then Mrs. Hanson), lost her husband by death. She had an infant daughter, whom she entrusted to a lady friend to mind. This friend left Australia for London, taking the infant with her. From London she journeyed to America and from that day the anxious mother lost all trace of her child. A short time ago an advertisement appeared in the Sydney daily papers offering 10 pounds from the daughter in America for information as to the whereabouts of Mrs Hansen. It appears that the daughter was married to a New York postmaster. A resident of Balgownie (Mr. James Smith)) happened to see the advertisement, and showed it to Mrs. Screens, who at once communicated with a Sydney detective. The result was that a few weeks ago the long lost daughter, accompanied by her husband, landed at Wollongong, and mother and daughter have been all in all to each other ever since. The Daily News (Perth, WA : 1882 - 1950) Friday 9 October 1903 p 3

On Wednesday morning an elderly woman named Mrs. Screens was found by her daughter-in-law lying dead on the floor of her cottage. . She lived by herself, but her cottage was close beside that of her son. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 20 March 1908 p 2

Living at Corrimal in 1903 Electoral Roll- Domestic Duties

Mrs. Ellen Seaman, who has practically spent her life in Corrimal, passed away on Saturday last at the age of 76 years. A lovable lady, noted for her generosity, and her ever readiness to assist in cases of sickness, 'Granny' Seaman carried out the duties of nurse for many years, principally, all voluntarily, and her presence in many homes always brought forth a ray of cheerfulness. This estimable old lady’s death came as a shock to her family, as well as the residents of Corrimal, amongst whom she had worked for nearly half a century. To her grown up family this paper extends its deepest sympathy. Her husband predeceased her some years ago. Those left to mourn the loss of a dear mother are Mrs. T. Silcocks, Mrs. T. Lowlor, Mrs. W. Edwards (Corrimal), Mrs. Parry (Woonona), Mrs. Smith (Marrickville), Mrs.Higgins and Mr. Jack Seaman (Sydney). Illawarra Mercury Friday 20 June 1930 page 9

Melancoly Death. — A death attended by circumstances of a peculiar sad and sorrowful nature occurred at Mount Keira, yesterday morning. About three weeks ago the wife of Mr Edwin Searle, online-driver at the mine, was confined, and was apparently progressing favourably until about a- week ago, when she is supposed to have caught cold either through wet or exposure, in some way. She then became dangerously ill, and Dr Lyons was called in, but his skill was unavailing, and after violent suffering she died about 8 o'clock yesterday morning. The deceased was the daughter of Mr W. S. Makin, the I S. N. Company's agent at Wollongong, and was comparatively speaking a young woman, being, only about 30 years of age. She leaves a bereaved husband eight very young children, the six eldest, and the infant only three weeks old, being girls. Great sympathy is felt for Mr Searle and his tender family in their most sorrowful and severe affliction. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 20 October 1871 p 2

SEATON-WOOD. - On the 27th February, at Sydney, by the Rev. James Holden, John Seaton, Blairgowrie, Scotland, to Florence, youngest daughter of John Wood, of Launceston. Daily Telegraph (Launceston, Tas. : 1883 - 1928) Wednesday 11 March 1891 p 2


William Alexander Seaton, aged 16, described as a clerk, committed suicide by hanging at the residence of his widowed mother, Florence Seaton, Albert street, Invermay. Launceston, shortly after three o'clock yesterday afternoon.

The deceased, who for the past month had been suffering from melancholia, had been attended by Dr. Pardey, who suggested sending him to the hospital for treatment.

This was not done, however, and deceased remained at home. Yesterday afternoon he appeared to be in his usual state of health, and when his mother left the house for a few minutes he was sitting in a chair reading.

On the mother's return he was missing, and on making a search she found him hanging by the neck from the rafters in an old shed. Her screams attracted the attention of some neighbors, who cut the body down. The deceased was gasping, but expired before medical aid arrived

The matter was reported to the police who conveyed the body to the morgue.

The coroner was acquainted with the incident, and an inquest is to be held to-day. Daily Post (Hobart, Tas. : 1908 - 1918) Thursday 7 November 1912 p 4

In 1915 when her son Colin enlisted she was living in Launceston Tas and had lived at Burnie Tas.

SHANAHAN. — September 25th, at her residence, Kembla Street, Wollongong, Bridget Shanahan, relict of the late Thomas Shanahan, and beloved mother of John, Sylvester, Blanche and Mary (Mrs. Davis); aged 74 years. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 25 September 1931 p 6


There passed away at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. AV. Davis, Kembla Street, Wollongong, on Friday last, of one of the most respected residents of Wollongong and district, in the person

of Mrs. Bridget Shanahan. The deceased lady came from Ireland to Australia over 60 years ago, and settled in Wollongong, where she has resided ever since. The late Mrs. Shanahan was 76 years of age at the time of her death, and up till about 9 months ago had enjoyed good health. Being the possessor of a kind and jovial disposition, she was extremely popular with all those with whom she came in contact, while her many acts of kindness and charity will long live as a monument to her memory. Though she at, times suffered excruciating pain during her long illness, she was never heard to complain, and indeed her sunny disposition was in evidence almost to the last. She was a devout adherent to her Church, and had the unique distinction of occupying the same pew in St. Francis Xavicr's Church, Wollongong, ever since her arrival in Australia. Her husband, Mr. T. Shanahan, who was a member of one of the pioneer families of the Illawarra district, predeceased her fourteen years ago. Notwithstanding the unpropitious condition of the weather on Saturday last, the large and representative gathering at the funeral of the deceased

lady bore ample testimony sf the high esteem an which the family is held in the district. The remains were taken to the Church she loved so well, where an impressive service was conducted by Rev. Father Dohcrty. The many floral tributes received from the wide circlc of friends gave further evidence of the

popularity of the deceased. After a short service at the graveside by, the Rev. Father Dohcrty, the remains of the deceased, who by an honourable and charitable life had earned her reward, were laid to rest beside her hus band. Two sons, Messrs. J. and S. Shanahan, and two daughters, Mrs. AV. Davis and Miss N. Shunahun, are left to mourn the loss of a devoted mother. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 2 October 1931 p 5

In 1833 two mounted police went out from Wollongong into the bush at Fairy Meadow for a cabbage tree trough for the pigs and fowls to drink from. These troopers, named Shannon and Ward, were carrying the trough in upon their shoulders. When they got opposite what is now a portion of the convent (it was then Elliott's public-house, a small weatherboard place) Shannon dropped dead under the load.

As there was no burying ground in Wollongong at that time his body was buried just in front of where the Brighton Hotel now stands, in fact, in what is now the little front garden of the hotel. That spot then stood just inside Mr. Smith's paddock. Prior to the interment the wife of a sawyer named Rock was buried in the same place.

When the Catholic burying ground on the sand bank was laid out Shannon's remains were taken up and reburied in the sand bank. When her husband's body was interred in front of the Brighton Hotel, Mrs. Shannon put a rug round the coffin to preserve it, for she intended to have it taken up again and buried afresh when there was a proper burial ground. Shannon was buried with military honors, but there was no band here then to play the Dead March. I believe he was the fIrst person buried with military honors in Wollongong. I believe Mrs. Rock's remains still lie in the ground in front of the Brighton. At all events, I don't remember their ever being taken up.

The little house I previously spoke of as standing in the south-west corner of the settlement, and which was used as the second post-office and the second court house in Wollongong, was built to be a residence for a married trooper, there being no room in the barracks for an additional married man when Mrs. Shannon had become a widow.

Captain Allman then got permission for Mrs. Shannon to build a house for herself on the rise just a little to the east of where the front of the gaol now is. Her house stood about where the tramway now runs up the hill. She lived and kept a little shop there for a time. Afterwards she married Corporal Shanahan, and then she left her house on the hill and came back to the barracks.

She let her little house to [James O'Brien] Crocker, who was the magistrate's clerk, and afterwards the Government, requiring the ground on which it stood to carry out the harbor works, destroyed it, giving to Mrs. Shanahan in lieu of it the first allotment up at the Green. The Government gave her this piece of ground, Number 1 allotment of Section 9, as soon as the section had been measured, and before any of it was sold. The little house she put up on this allotment still stands there. Corporal Shanahan had a son who died here, and one of his sons, I believe, lives in the town here now.

Edward Mulligan appeared in answer to a charge of child desertion and pleaded guilty. Mr. K. Ryan appeared for complainant (Mr. Maurice Shanahan), who laid the information.

Maurice Shanahan said the defendant's children, numbering three, had resided with his parents (who were both old people), since the 24th February, 1904. After the death of his sister, who had married defendant, the children had been brought to his (witness) place, and had remained there over since. Defendant had promised to support the children, but had not done so. On one occasion he forwarded 30s for their support, but that was the only payment. The children had no support for themselves, but depended on witness father and mother. Defendant held the occupation of a tram conductor for two or three years. Last July witness approached him with a view to obtaining support for the children, and had received a promise, but nothing had been paid up to the present date. He asked that the children receive support, or else be placed where they would be cared for.

Mr. Ryan said something would have to be done in the way of supporting the children. A good offer had been made by a local farmer to support the oldest boy, but it remained what was to be done with the other two children. It was for the Bench to make an order.

Defendant stated to his Worship that he could arrange for the placing of the two younger children in the R C. Orphanage at Gore Hill, and Mr. J. Findlay had promised to keep the oldest boy until such time when he had a home for him to go to.

However, if the Court made an order, he was willing to abide by it.

After consideration, the bench made an order that defendant would have to pay the sum of 16s for the keep of the children, numbering three, and added Court costs amounting to £1 7s. Defendant was given

Gerringong cemetery has witnessed many an imposing scene, but rarely one more solemn and imposing than that which took place on Monday afternoon last, when, in celebration of the “home-going” of the above named deceased, friends from near and far assembled to bid a last farewell to, perhaps, not a very conspicuous personage as the world measures, for she was but seldom seen beyond her own home, yet one who has counted and will continue to count for a permanent factor in the evolution that has taken place in this district during the last almost half-century. For the importance the comparative importance - of individuals depends much more upon this often unnoticed point than upon their intrinsic value. It has been said that there were probably men of much more commanding genius and far greater intellectual attainments in the Court of Pharoah of the Exodus than Caleb or Joshua, or even Aaron, the first of the high priests, but all the potentates and warrior heroes of that day have gone down into the abyss of oblivion, while the friends and companions of the hero who led the Jews through the wilderness still are to be reckoned with in the world's onward march. The reason for this was that the Exodus marked the beginning of a new departure, pregnant with immeasurable consequences to the future of the world. Hence to have carried a spear or packed a waggon in the Israelitish hosts was a task fraught with more world-wide consequences than the more imposing duties of commander-in-chiefs and rulers of provinces in Egypt. Just so, though on a very much lower level, of course, than this old world example I have quoted, do the brave old pioneers who did the hard work of redeeming from gloomy forest, the district now regarded as one of the fairest in our sunny land, stand out as more important or as having wrought a nobler work for the colony's progress, than many of ampler powers and more liberal education; they led the van in a new departure. Another item that undoubtodly contributed- beyond the fact of long residence and quiet, unostentatious neighbourliness, for a less obtrusive woman never breathed-to any honors the residents sought to pay on Monday last was the fact that Mrs. Sharpe had given to the district sons and daughters whom all delight to honor. That, in many ways, unique woman of the century, Francess Willard, in one of her latest writings, says, “A great new world looms into sight like some splendid ship long waited for; the world of heredity, of parental influence, of infantile environment, the greatest right of which we can conceive, the right of the child to be well born, is being steadily recognised.” Well, whatever the future may hold it is impossible to say; but it is not a very hazardous prediction to say that it will not be easy to improve on some of the old-fashioned mothers who are fast passing away, and Mrs. Sharpe stands out a conspicuous, a typical, an influential mother, who long ago evidently caught the idea about children being wellborn, wisely, loving trained inspired with an enthusiasm for work, till now they stand as leading citizens in their several spheres.

Mrs. Sharpe was born in the town of Ballymena, in the county of Antrim, some 80 years ago. Eighty years ago I can imagine my latent thoughts unloosed and imagination carried back at the mere mention of the date on the part of some old patriarch, and the story irradiated until it glowed with the splendour with which the dawn illumes the eastern sky, but I may not become an archaeologist and linger over the certain or uncertain past.

I may not picture the emigration from the old land, still fondly called “home,” and all its traditions cherished, though I have heard it told often how, with husband and two children, she set out some 47 years ago to found a new home beneath the Southern Cross. All I can do is to sketch lightly and trace with rapid pen. Immediately after arrival in the colony, passionately fond of the vigorous out door life of the country, the family settled in this district, wild and romantic as it then unquestionably was, and straightway launched with the stern determination that spells success into all the prosaic duties that awaited the settler in those days. In 1874 her husband, Mr. Neil Sharpe, was cut down in the full strength of his sturdy manhood, and he who but a few days before left her in buoyant health to pursue some business engagements was carried home merely for burial. Thickly studded had life seemed previously, with never-enduring work, but with all the bravery of one who had had evidently bequeathed to her an impoverishable legacy of fervent piety which was no mere deception, but tempered and tuned her whole life, were the altered circumstances faced, and with a strong heart into the thick of the night did she throw herself for family and home.

Mrs. Sharpe seemed a survival of the old age of downright straightforwardness. Her conception of duty was the Puritan's, and like them she had the same strong sense of the overwhelming authority and righteousness of God. She had been brought up in the conviction which never had a rival in her breast that “the whole duty of man was to fear God and keep His commandments.” The manners of such a type of lofty integrity are not always pleasant in these days when flattery has become a fine art. To men of doubtful principle she could give a very curt reception and more peremptory dismissal. During the last five or six years she found a quiet house with her deservedly esteemed son-in-law, Mr. Alex. Campbell, M.P. There on Sunday morning last, surrounded by those nearest and dearest, over whose weal and woe she had so long kept watch, she calmly breathed her last, and from that home was borne by loving friends and relatives and laid to rest beside her husband in the family plot.

Another of the pioneers of the lower Richmond, in the person of Mrs. John Sharpe, of North Creek, passed away at the Ballina District Hospital on Friday, 27th January, in the presence of all the surviving members of her, family. Deceased, whose maiden name was McCabe, was 85 years of age.

She was a native of the North of Ireland and came to Australia in 1855 and settled at Kiama, South Coast. In 1859 she married Mr. John Sharpe, who is still alive, and in his 84th year. They lived for a short period in Sydney and then took up their residence at Kiama. In the year 1864 they removed to the Richmond River and remained for a time at Prospect. From there they removed to Shellbank farm (known as Mackie's), and finally removed to The Pines, North Creek; where the old lady resided until the end of the year, when she became ill and had to be removed to the hospital. She retained her mental faculties to the last. Her quiet and unassuming disposition, together with her fine neighbourly qualities, won for her a large circle of friends who will generally regret her demise. The family are Mrs. J Cordwell. (Toowoomba), James Sharp (Kyogle), Mrs. J. H. White (Woodburn), Mrs. J. L. Johnson (East Ballina), Misses. A. and E. Sharpe (North Creek), E. W. Sharpe (North Creek) and Ewen Sharpe (Casino). The deceased members of the family are John, drowned, in North Creek in 1879; David died in infancy, 1863; and Eliza, died in 1894. The late Mrs. Sharpe leaves behind 24 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She had been 62 years married last September, and had the unique experience of having celebrated her golden and diamond wedding, the last mentioned festivity taking place on the 16th September, 1919 in the presence of a large gathering of relatives and friends. The funeral left the Presbyterian Church, where the customary service was held, at 11 a.m. the following day, for the East Ballina portion of the Presbyterian cemetery.

Sharpe- On Saturday, December 5, 1863, of scarlatina, Margaret, youngest daughter of Mr. John Sharpe, Kiama, after a short but severe illness of nine days, aged ten years and ten months Empire (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1875) Thursday 10 December 1863

From Ballina the death is reported of Mrs. John Sharpe, sen., in her 84th year. Mrs Sharpe, whose name has been a household word in the Richmond River District for the past 30 years or so, was a native of the County of Antrim, Ireland, and arrived in the colony with her husband in 1840, settling at Kiama, where the late Mr. Sharpe engaged in the wheat industry.

The family subsequently removed to the Richmond River, in 1866, taking up Prospect Estate at North Creek. Mrs Sharpe was universally esteemed for those good and true womanly qualities which always bespeak the lady, and command homage. Her husband, it will be remembered, passed away only last year, so that it was fitting that the separation of the venerable couple who had been joined together so happily for so long should be brief.

The deceased lady leaves four sons, one daughter, and a large number of grand-children and great grand-children. The more immediate members of her family are Messrs, John, David, James, and Neil Sharpe, and Mrs. E. Mackinnon, of Ballina.

The death took place on Monday night of Mrs Mary Sharpe at the advanced age of 89 years. Almost the whole of her life was spent in the Gerringong district, to which she came as a small child, with her parents from County Fermanagh, Ireland, her maiden name being Miss Mary Gray.

In the late sixties she married the late Mr William Sharpe, at Berry, and for many years the worthy couple farmed, and reared their family of eleven children at Toolijooa, putting up the fight against the bush, to wrest the farm lands of to-day, such as many of the early pioneer folk had to do. In the district in which she had seen so many changes, and where she had been honoured and beloved so long, she is to be buried to-day, the interment in the Gerringong cemetery.

For a number of years the late Mrs. Sharpe has been lovingly a cared for in the home of Mr. J. Miller and her late daughter Della (Mrs. Miller) and prior to the latter's illness, went to stay with her daughter, Mrs. C. N. Miller, of Numba, where she died. Since the shock of Mrs. Miller's death the old lady, who felt it keenly has just slipped away, taking little or no interest in life.

Previously alert and with wonderful memeory a chat with her revaled a clear brain and unusal memeory stored with entertaining fact of historical interest and she took great delight in the affairs of the home, where she had such a happy niche surrounded by the care of Mr and Mrs Miller and her grandsons. Throughout life her Chrsitian character was an incentive to those about her and nobly she sustained the characteristics of a good wife, mother and friend; hospitable and generous in her household and thoughtful of the needs of others.

The funeral service will be conduct by Rev. Hope Hume at 12 a.m. today (Wednesday), the body being brought by motor hearse from Namba. Survivng members of Mrs Sharpe’s family are Mrs C N Miller (Namba), Mrs J Thompson (Tweed River), Mrs J Butt (Richmons River) Messers Harry, James, Hugh (Sydney), Fred and Wesley (Richmond River).

The death of Mrs Sarah Jane Sharpe beloved wife of Mr C. V. Sharpe of Rockdale, and formerly of Kiama, which occurred on Friday last, at her home in Rockdale, made the first break in a well-known Kiama family, that of the late Mr. Richard Holden's, of which Mrs. Sharpe was the fourth daughter.

She is survived by four brother s Thomas and George (Kiama), Fortune (Lismore), Henry (Greenwich) and four sisters-Mrs. B. H. Boniface (Kiama), Mrs. S. Geoghagan (Nowra), Mrs. M. Morse (Rockdale and Mrs. Geo. Cousins (Grenfell), four members of which have reached or passed the allotted span of their three score years and ten.

Mrs. Sharpe was born in Kiama in 1862, when her parents resided at the eastern end of Terralong Street, in a cottage which later was demolished when operations were started for what is now the State quarry.

When 18 years of age she married Mr. C. V. Sharpe, who for about 20 years was identified with the business life of the town, as a saddler and harness maker and for over 17 years secretary of the Kiama branch of the Protestant Alliance Fiendly Society, and a Sergt. Major in the old Volunteer Corps.

They reared a family of nine children, another son dying in infancy.

About 28 years ago the family removed to Rockdale, where they have since resided, and the youngest son was born.

Her end came suddenly and as a happy , release from many years of pain and suffering, which she bore with true Christian fortitude. In 1910, when most others did, Mrs. Sharpe fell a victim to epidemic of pneumonic influenza, from which she never properly recovered, but until about two years ago was able to go about her household duties. Since then she had practically been an invalid-the loving care of her husband-and daughters, particularly Gladys, and her youngest son, Gordon, who lived with their parents, the others having married.

Last Christmas, Mrs, Sharpe began to fail rapidly and until her death was devotedly nursed by her step-daughter Florrie (Mrs. S. Brown), surrounded by the affection of her husband and children, and wanting nothing that was humanly possible to do for her.

She possessed a sweet disposition, nothing pleasing her more than to do someone a kindness. Her chief interest was in her husband and her family to whom she was a splendid wife and mother. They were forever in her thoughts, and next her garden, for she loved flowers, and loved to grow them.

She will be deeply mourned as only a good mother can be and sincere sympathy will go out to the bereaved husband and family, six sons–Ernest, Kenneth and Gordon (Rockdale) William (Manly), Ronald (North Sydney) and Norman (Grenfell) and three daughters-Gladys, (Rockdale), Mrs. R. Pfeiffer (Grenfell) and Mrs. J M. Weston (Kiama) also to Mrs. S Brown and Mrs S Starr of Grenfell (Step-daughters)

The interment took place on the following day (Saturday) at Woronora cemetery. The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal (NSW : 1899 - 1947) Wednesday 12 June 1929 p 2

Death of Mr. James Sharples

An inquest was held by the Deputy Coroner, Mr. James Kirby, as to the death of James Sharples, of Fairy Meadow, on Monday last. Evidence was given by Mrs. Sharples, who said her husband had come home the worse of liquor on Saturday night. He had suffered from headaches since a sunstroke he had some years ago. He had complained on Sunday of his head; on Monday morning she summoned Dr. Jackson, who attended him. William Sharples, brother, and William Fairlie, deposed to being in deceased's company on Saturday evening at a hotel; they accompanied him to his home. When he got out of the sulky he stumbled and fell. There was absolutely no quarrelling, all were friendly.

Dr. Jackson deposed deceased had a wound on an eye which might have been caused by a sharp instrument, or a blow, possibly by striking salt bush stubble in a fall. Death was due to intra-cranial pressure.

A verdict of death by injury, to eye and cranial pressure was recorded.

Mr. Sharples was haulage contractor at Mount Pleasant. He had the respect and esteem of all who were acquainted with him or had dealings with him. He was 63 years of age. His family comprised 3 sons and a daughter. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 8 August 1919 p 17

Mrs. Wm. Shaw, a daughter of Mr. Robert Gilmore, sen., died suddenly is morning at her residence in

Denison-st., Garden Hill. She was a highly respected resident, and much sympathy is expressed for the family.

It appears that she complained of being unwell when she got up this morning, and went into the house after her son Roy had driven away.

Her daughter Gladys came in afterwards and found her mother lying at the steps at the back of the house.

She shook her and then ran for assistance. Upon the arrival of Dr. H. Lee he found that life had been extinct for about half an hour. An inquiry will be held to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 3 June 1910 p 4

A sad case of drowning occurred here this morning. At about 10.30 o'clock the body of Mrs. John Shearing was found in a waterhole at a creek adjoining her residence. It is presumed that the unfortunate woman was drawing water from the creek when the accident happened. Nothing was known of the occurrence until some two hours later, when the body was discovered by her daughter. The family entertained no anxiety at their mother's absence, thinking she was visiting a neighbour. The deceased was 55 years of age, an old resident of the district, and was much respected. She leaves a husband and several grown-up sons and daughters. The Coroner held an inquest this afternoon, and a verdict of accidentally drowned was returned.

SHEPPARD.— At her residence, Campbell-street, Wollongong, on the 6th July, Mrs. J. R. Sheppard, of twin sons. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 29 July 1881 p 2

Her parents were German nobility and her father Adalbert had fled to London in about 1850 because as a Captain in the Prussian Army, he had challenged his Colonel and Captain to a duel, and now faced the possibility of a court-martial. He was also secretly engaged to Adelaide, a Baroness, despite the fact that she was to wed a Prussian prince in an arranged marriage. They came to NSW in 1854 and her father was appointed as a surveyor. Her father was to lay out and construct roads from the Clyde River to Braidwood, and from the McLeay River at Kempsey to Armidale, and to open up communication for the goldfields at Kiandra.

Her brother Carl Weber (the eldest son) also became a surveyor and in about 1874 was working on the initial surveys for the Sydney Water Supply at Darkes Forest, which is why the family may have been in the Illawarra. See Webber Elizabeth * (Rice)

Her mother composed a setting of a hymn, Hail! Glorious Light of Day, in 1870.

The family went to New Zealand in about 1884 and the parents returned to Queensland in 1905 leaving the family behind in New Zealand. On her husband’s electoral roll he is listed as a gardener.

Golden Wedding.


We extend our congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Shipp, of Keiraville, upon having celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding. The wedding was celebrated 50 years ago

in the Fairy Meadow Church, by a C of E. Clergyman, the Rev. John Done.

After the ceremony the happy couple went to reside at a new home at Keiraville, and they have resided there ever since, where they have won the respect and esteem of a wide circle of friends, and reared a family that is a credit to themselves and the district.

The issue of the marriage was ten children — eight daughters and two sons—all of whom are alive, with the exception of one son (Alfred) who made the supreme sacrifice at Gallipoli. All the surviving members of the family attended at the home of their parents on Saturday, excepting one daughter, who resides on the North Coast, and was unable to be present. There are 24 grandchildren, and four great grand children.

The Rev. H. M. Riley presided at the anniversary gathering, and it is interesting to note that the best man and bridesmaid (Mr. and Mrs. John Shipp) were also present, also Mrs. Shipp's brother and his wife (Mr. And Mrs H. Parsons sen., who were present at the wedding. It is interesting to note, that Mr. and Mrs. John Shipp, and Mr. and Mrs. Parsons have also celebrated their golden weddings.

The health of the happy couple was honoured, and a grand daughter sang an appropriate solo.

The gathering was memorable for its sociability and the happy tone which characterised it. Mr. and Mrs. Shipp are both in good health. Mr. Shipp worked in the Mt. Keira Colliery all his life, until a few years ago, when he retired. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 7 May 1926 p 13

Mrs. Olive Ellenor Shipp, wife of Ald. R. Shipp, died suddenly at her residence on Tuesday night, at the age of 49 years. The late Mrs. Shipp was born at Cootamundra and was a daughter of Mr. J. J. McCarthy. She married Mr. Robert Shipp in 1900 and they came to Keiraville living there for some 22 years. In 1922 Mr. Shipp opened up business at Port Kembla and the family has resided there since.

The late Mrs. Shipp was a woman of fine character and one whom Port Kembla can ill afford to lose. She always took a keen interest in welfare of the town and its citizens and many of latter have good cause to remember her many acts of kindness. On striking illustration of this was manfested on Wednesday, when Stephen Marin came up to the house. He was dressed up and when he heard that the sad news was true he sat down and cried. Four daughters of the marriage survive. They are Mrs. Archie Cowan, Mrs. Thelma Hall; Mrs. Leila O’Donnell and Eunice Shipp. Mrs. O'Donnell was married only last Wednesday week and is at present on her honeymoon. Attempts were made to locate her by means of the Broadcasting companies. One daughter, Mrs. Watson, died early this year and an other daughter Valerie, died about twelve years ago.

Ever since Mrs. Watson's death, the late Mrs. Shipp has not been enjoying the best of health but no one expected the end would come as suddenly as it did. She was about on Tuesday and took ill just before midnight and succumbed a few minutes later.

She has three brothers, Harry McCarthy (Port Kembla), Joseph (Nowra) and Charles (Balmain), and two sisters (Mrs. Arthur James (Lismore) and Mrs. Fred Ison , (Nowra).

The funeral on Thursday was a very large and representative one. The remains were laid to rest in the C. of E. Cemetery, WoIIongong, alongside her daughter, Perly (Mrs. Watson). South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954)Friday 7 December 1928 - Page 12

“The Argyle Liberal”, 21 May 1918, New South Wales, Australia.
We regret to record the demise of another old pioneer and highly regarded resident of this district in the person of Mrs Sarah Shipp, relict of the late Mr John Shipp, which occurred at the residence of her son Mt John Shipp of Kialla Road, early on last Thursday morning, the 16th inst., at the advanced age of 93 years, the cause of death being heart failure. The grand old pioneers of the district - men and women - who battled and held their own against great odd, are one by one silently passing away beyond the Borderland where rest and peace await them after the toil and burden of the day. With the noble example set them by these old pioneers, the rising generation should profit much. The subject of our notice who given the greater part of a long, honourable and useful life in this district, experienced the vicissitudes of the pioneering days, having arrived with her husband in the State when they were both young and possessed of health and vigour, steady perseverance and courage, all of which were needed that they might overcome the many difficulties that beset the path of the early settlers on the soil.

The late Mrs Shipp, who was born in Cambridgeshire, England, in 1824, married at the age of 19 years, and eight years afterwards - in 1851, the young couple decided to seek a home and fortune in a newer land and under fairer skies. And so they set sail for the land of the Southern Cross, the voyage taking 93 days (no quick steamers in those days) and landed in Sydney around which now are thickly populated suburbs, and which were then only dense scrub. The couple then went on to the Illawarra district where the late Mr Shipp was fortunate in obtaining work (no eight hours nor award wages in those times) and for some time was employed in various occupations. Later - in 1868, they arrived in the Crookwell district and settled on the land carrying on dairying, farming and grazing pursuits, and where they resided up to their time of death.

The late Mrs Shipp who was a quiet and unassuming lady, was one of the “old school” to whom her home was her kingdom, a loving and gentle mother, a kind and charitable neighbour and held in the highest esteem by all classes of the community. She had enjoyed the best of health to within a short time of her demise when advancing age began to tell on the once vigorous constitution; she visibly grew feeble and when the call came she was prepared, and calmly and peacefully her spirit passed away to Him Who gave it. Her husband predeceased her by about 18 years, and she is survived by three sons and two daughters who deplore the irretrievable loss of a good mother. The sons are Messrs. William Shipp of Sydney, and Harry and John of Kialla. The daughters are Mrs W. Boulton of Orange and Mrs Geo. King of Sydney.

The funeral which was a representative one, took place on Friday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Methodist section of the Crookwell cemetery, the Rev. F.R. Todd conducting the burial service at the graveside. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Kennedy and Thurkettle, local undertakers.

William Shipp and Family, John Shipp and Family and Mrs Geo. King desire to tender their sincere THANKS to their many friends for kind offers of assistance and expressions of sympathy in their sad bereavement in the death of their late mother Mrs Sarah Shipp.

The death occurred on Monday at her daughter's residence (Mrs. J. Baker, Collins St.) of Mrs. Isabella Shipton, a highly esteemed resident of the coast for many years. Mrs. Shipton, with her husband and family resided for many years at Mount Keira, and then moved to Helensburgh. When her daughter, Mrs. J. Baker, moved to Corrimal, about 21 years ago, the mother and father came and made their home with her and her husband in Collins street.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Shipton spent several months in the year with their daughter, Mrs. Roberts, at Katoomba and it was at this town that Mr Shipton died about 15 years ago. The late Mrs. Shipton continued her yearly visits to Katoomba, and at her own request she was buried alongside the remains of her late husband in the Katoomba C. of E. cemetery.

Mrs. Shipton -was widely known and although not taking a prominent part in public affairs, she was always ready and willing to assist any deserving movement. This was always done in an unostentatious, manner; she had always taken a delight in helping in cases of, sickness.

Deceased was a wonderful mother, and leaves this world the better for her having lived in it.

There were eight children five sons and three daughters.) Those surviving are Mesdames Wiley of Peakhurst; Roberts, of Katoomba; and Baker, of Corrimal; arid Mr. Ted Shipton of Helensburgh. There are eleven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Although in her 89th year, it was only during the past two months that failing health caused her to be confined to bed. … South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW: 1900 - 1954) Friday 3 August 1934 p 13

Her husband was shot by their daughter Katie ‘accidently’ while wrestling for a gun. He had been demanded money while holding a knife and a gun saying he would ‘do the lot of them’. He had assaulted Catherine frequently. See numerous reports

Katherine Seily, widow of deceased, said that her husband, on Sunday morning last, was in a passion, and threatened to murder the whole family. He forced his daughters Annie and Katie to give him money. That morning he sharpened a knife and asked where the gun was, a double-barrelled breech-loader. Previously her husband said he would blow Katie's brains out, if she did not give him 30s. The gun was then lying on a sofa in the kitchen, and her husband sat down beside it. Katie gave her father the 30s, and a few minutes later she (witness) went into the back yard, when she heard a shot. Katie immediately afterwards ran out and told her that her father was shot. On Saturday night her husband came home and quarrelled with her, and hit her over the head with his closed hand, and made her daughter Annie give him money for drink. On Sunday morning he struck her across the hand with a greenhide whip, and subsequently threatened all their lives. She asked Katie what had happened, and the girl replied, “The gun might have gone off when I pulled it from father.” Witness remembered her husband saying that he would shoot her (witness) that night, but Katie (who was present) said, “No, you won't, not while I am here.”

Robert Henry Ellis stated that Mrs. Seily said to him, “Katie has shot her father. He is dead.” Katie shortly afterwards came into the room, and said “Father was going to kill mother. I did it to save her.”The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Thursday 6 March 1913 p 12

Death registered at Burrawang

Accidents of serious nature befell Mrs. William Simpson of Kangaloon on Tuesday morning last. It appears Mrs. Simpson was being driven in a cart, in company with two other females, by Mr. Edward Boyle, from Robertson to Kangaloon, and while proceeding down a hill, the straps of the breechen, being rather long, the horse, usually a quiet one, became restive, began bucking, and bolted down the hill, when one of the wheels coming in contact with a fence, the vehicle capsized, throwing the occupants to the ground. All the parties, with the exception of Mrs. Simpson, who had a child in her arms, escaped uninjured, and it is supposed the pin of the tailboard in falling, struck her on the leg below the knee, fracturing the bone. As soon as the amount of damage was discovered, Mr. Boyle started for Kiama for medical advice, and secured the services of Dr. William Tarrant, but on his arrival at Kangaloon, the leg was in such a state that he could do nothing, and advised the removal of the sufferer to Kiama. With praiseworthy good nature, about fifty of the neighbours turned out and volunteered their services in conveying Mrs. Simpson to Kiama, and a sofa having been procured, a start was made about nine o'clock, the men taking it in turn to carry the burden. The people of Jamberoo, hearing that the company was on the road, had prepared refreshments, and a number of Kiama people, when they heard of the affair, started out to assist in carrying the sufferer in. They reached Kiama about nine o'clock, having been over twelve hours on the road, and put up at Mr Clancey's, and we have since heard that there is very little doubt but that the leg will have to be amputated, the bone being literally shattered. Much sympathy is felt for Mrs. Simpson, who is the mother of a large family. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 18 April 1879 p 2

The deputy Coroner (Mr J. Kirby J.P.) conducted an inquiry, on Wednesday, into the circumstances surrounding the death of Eric Roy Simpson.

Amelia Simpson, mother, stated deceased was her son, aged 27, he having been born at Corrimal. He was employed as a miner at South Bulli colliery. On Tuesday, 7th May, deceased complained about pains in his head. Witness sent for Dr Goldie, who came. Witness saw deceased writing and asked him what he was writing. He replied 'Never mind,' After witness' daughter came back from the doctor's, deceased tidied himself, and afterwards assisted Mr Edgar to milk the cows. He had his tea and went into his room- He still complained of pains in his head. Witness told him to go to bed. It was about 9 p.m. when witness saw him last alive. At 6 p.m. next morning witness missed deceased. His body was afterwards found in the well. Deceased told witness that he had been hit on the head in the mine by a slab, or something, or probably a sleeper off a prop. This was about three weeks before his death.

Deceased had said 'I am lucky I am home; it knocked me out. ' The reason he did not report the accident to the mine officials was because he had not been cut by the stake. He said If I had reported the accident I would have been called a 'comp king'. Deceased had cried and said I will not be able to work for you, mum, on account of the accident.' Witness said she had eleven children but deceased was the best son a mother could have. He was her sole means of support, and was paying off the mortgage on the home. Deceased never had the doctor before the 7th inst. Apart from pains in the head he was normal.

Dr Goldie said he assisted in the search for the body which was found in the well. Deceased was in the water for some hours and life was extinct. Deceased first came to witness' consulting room on 4th May when he complained of pains in the head and face. He mentioned he had been struck by a prop in the mine about 10 days before, but kept on working, although he felt nervous and depressed. Subsequently saw deceased at his home and had a talk with him; he seemed to have delusions of persecution, and imagined people were talking about him. It would be possible for the nervous system to be affected by a knock on the head without it being visible at a post mortem. If the nervous system was affected it would have an effect on the mental condition.

Constable Fleming and Joseph Edgar also gave evidence re the finding of the body, etc.

Exhibits put in included the following written by deceased.

'Couldn't find the cap and fuse, so will try the next best. Good-bye, everybody.'

Another one read —

'This is to certify that I, Eric Simpson, do hereby leave to my mother everything I possess or own— motor cycle, wireless set, gun. Everything else I leave to my mother. She is my best friend in this world. I have a feeling that I am not wanted in this world any longer. I have not been of much use to anybody all my life. I have no complaint against anybody in this world, and I hope everybody will forgive me if I have ever done them an injury. I have an awful pain at the back of my head, which, I think was caused by a sleeper hitting me on the back of the head over a week ago. W. Hall was the wheeler. I think that pain will drive me mad, if it does not ease off soon — (signed) Eric Simpson. Towrodgi Road, Corrimal; Tuesday, May 7th, 1929.

A third note ran as follows: — 'I am sorry I have not anything else to leave my sisters, especially Cass, who has always been a good friend to me. Now Cass, you live with mum, and look after her — God bless her. Mother, sisters and brothers, I ask and pray that you will forgive me; I am going to pray to God tonight, that He might forgive me also. The only excuse I have is that I am not responsible for my actions, and I am mad. God forgive me.

Another one of Glenreagh s old pioneers died a few weeks ago, at the good old age of 79, in the person of Mrs. Elizabeth Simpson, relict of the late Charles Simpson, who predeceased her some five years ago. She was a daughter of Thomas Keevers, of Jamberoo, South Coast, and with her husband and four children came to the district and took up land at Tallawajah Creek, about 50 years ago. There she reared a large- family, under real pioneer conditions, good roads being unknown. Horse and bullock teams were the only transport, and South Grafton was their nearest town for supplies. A few years ago her husband bought a property near Glenreagh, where she lived until her demise.

Mrs: Simpson was a great worker for the advancement of the district, and during the war was a great leader in helping the soldiers at the front.

She was a member of the Anglican Church, and it was mainly through her great organising ability and energy that Christ Church, Glenreagh, was built free of debt. Later she under took to raise the necessary funds to erect a church bell, which, it is claimed, is the best in any country district in the Diocese of Grafton. In the Anglican Ladies' Guild, she was a great worker and held all the chief offices up to a few years ago, when age forced her to retire from active public life.

She is survived by three sons and three daughters. Mrs. J. H. (Annie) Skinner, Mrs. T. G. (Sarah) Holder, Glenreagh, and Mrs. H. (Lizzie) Clark, Dorrigo. Messrs Henry Simpson (Repton), Jack Simpson . (Glenreagh) and Sam Simpson (Queensland). Twenty-seven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, besides a large circle of friends, mourn her loss. She was laid to rest in the Anglican portion of the South Grafton cemetery, Daily Examiner (Grafton, NSW : 1915 - 1954) Wednesday 16 September 1936 p 4

A magisterial inquiry as to the death of Robert Simpson, at Dapto, was held on Saturday, by the Coroner, Mr. J. Hart, J.P. — Janet Simpson, wife of the deceased, deposed that her husband had been unwell for some time, and had been taking Clement's Tonic. On Saturday morning be said; he would try taking the medicine before breakfast, He accordingly went to a mantel –piece on which the bottle was, and took a bottle down and poured out the usual dose and drank it. After doing so he remarked that he would take no more of that medicine as it burnt his throat out.

He only took a cup of tea at breakfast and then lay on a couch. He seemed to be losing consciousness, and witness sent for the doctor and also for her son John. The latter on entering the room, remarked that there was a smell of carbolic, and taking hold of the medicine bottle, asked if that was what his father had taken; witness replied that it was; her son, exclaimed that it was carbolic ; the tonic bottle and the other stood near each other on the mantel piece, and were somewhat similar ; her husband's sight was not good. — Dr. Scott deposed that Mr Simpson was almost dead when he arrived ; the cause of death was carbolic acid poisoning,—

The Coroner's finding was that the deceased had died from carbolic acid poisoning, accidentally self -Administered.

Mr. Simpson, who was in-his 65th year, was a native of Dapto, and was most highly esteemed; His family consisted of four sons and three daughters. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Saturday 8 April 1905 p 11

IT is not very often that matters of weekly occurrence in this locality furnish your correspondent with items of of sufficient importance to communicate, and happily incidents similar to the one I have to mention this week do not often happen. The case I refer to is the sudden death of an infant daughter of Mrs. G. Chittick, and granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Wilson, of Crooked River, at whose place Mrs. Chittick was residing. If the cause of death had been an accident, it could not have been much more sudden, On Friday morning last, she appeared to be in robust health, and on Saturday evening she was a corpse.

The cause of death, I am informed wasdiphtheria, and though the services of Dr. Tarrant were obtained, the little sufferer succumbed to its effects. The funeral, which took place yesterday was well attended. Had Cevina Chittick lived until to-day, the 7th August, she would have been six years of age. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved mother, this being the only child. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Tuesday 8 August 1876 p 2

He returned a verdict of suicide whilst temporarily insane.

Herbert James Allen, of James st.. Mt. Kembla, stated Mrs. Skilling was his mother-in-law and she had resided with him for the past 17 years.

On the morning of Jan. 16th, she had her cup of tea and got up about 8 o'clock. She was in quite good spirits. He was doing some carpentering in the wash- house and about 9.20 a.m. saw her get up off the seat on the verandah and go into the house.

About ten minutes later he saw her leaning on the railing of the verandah. He noticed blood coming from what appeared to be her hand. He walked up and asked 'What have you done, Granny?' and she replied I have cut my throat.' Asked' why she had done this, she replied 'Forgive me, I think my legs are failing me.'

It was then he noticed the wound in her throat and saw a razor in her right hand. It was his razor and was usually kept in his son's room. Shortly afterwards witness said he saw Edward Perry, of Mt. Kembla, walking past and he asked him to get in touch with the doctor and ambulance.

On January 18th, he saw her. In Wollongong Hospital and asked 'How are you, Granny,' Her reply was 'I ' want you to forgive me for what I have done. I could not help it. I sneaked into the back room and planted the razor behind a picture in my room for a week. You will find the razor case behind the picture.'

Witness said on his return home he found the case behind the picture.

Deceased was 86 years and 11 months old and was born in England. She had been a widow and had resided with him for 17 years.

Dr. H. Iff. Lee said he saw Mrs. Skilling in hospital on Jan. 16th. She suffering from on incised wound in the neck and was suffering considerably from loss of blood. She died on Jan. 21st death being due to exhaustion brought about by haemorrhage. He had attended her for some time previous and was satisfied her mental condition was unstable.

John Albert Skilling, miner, of Mercury street, Wollongong, grandson of deceased, stated he saw her in hospital and on one occasion she said to him 'Johnnie, I want you to forgive me, I don't know why I did it, I am sorry, I don't want to be a burden on anyone, I can feel myself getting weak.'

Husband a very adventurous man who was a doctor on a whaling ‘cruise’ north of Scotland, in Manilla and around NSW.

It is with extreme regret that we chronicle the death of Mrs. Skinner, relict of the late Dr. A. Skinner, which sad event occurred at 2.30 a.m. yesterday morning at Inverell Station.

The deceased lady had been a resident in our town and district for many years, and during that time she made friends on every hand by reason of her loveable and genial disposition.

Mrs Skinner had passed the allotted span of life, and although she was in feeble health, her death was as sudden as it was unexpected. To the very large circle of relatives we extend our deepest sympathy, knowing that they have lost one who was very near and dear to them.

Alexander Sloan was last evening apprehended by Sergeant Cook, at his residence, in Collins-street, Surry Hills, on information that he had committed an aggravated assault upon Robert Sloan, 7 years of age; he said that he beat the boy for telling lies; produced a dog-chain which he received from Mrs. Haining. Robert Sloan deposed that he is seven years of age, and that defendant is his father; yesterday, his father stripped him and beat him with a strap on the back, then cut on him a chain, and said that he would chain him to a bedpost; he ran away, naked as he was, except as to the chain ; the marks on his back were caused by the beating ; his father beat him for telling a lie ; he did tell a lie. Margaret Haining, of Church-street, Surry Hills, deposed that about 4 p.m. yesterday she saw the boy running; he had nothing on him but a dog-chain — and she called him into her house ; he said that his father was going to bang him, and that he was going to his mother; she informed the police of the matter.

Defendant said that he punished the boy for telling a lie and stealing a penny. His Worship, Mr. Thompson, said that no doubt a father has a right to chastise a son; but this is not chastisement, but a brutal assault— the boy's back would scarcely be worse if he had received a punishment of fifty lashes. The Bench thought of sending him at first to gaol direct, but, in consideration that he has a large family, they would order him to pay a penalty of 20s., or to be imprisoned seven days.
