Her husband was also a convict and in August, 1832, he applied for half an acre of land on Kiama township reserve, and secured it before the end of the year.

ANN DAVIS was indicted for stealing, on the 19th of July , 67 sovereigns, and 19 half-sovereigns, the monies of John Frost , in his dwelling-house .

MR. PHILLIPS conducted the prosecution.

JOHN FORST . I am a baker, and live in Tavistock-street, Bedford-square . The prisoner was in my service at Midsummer last, and on taking stock I missed 200l. in money; in consequence of suspicion I went to the prisoner's room, with Sweetland, my brother-in-law; her box was searched in her presence - we first searched her drawers: she said they were my drawers, but the box was hers; she did not allow us to search the box willingly at first, but I said I would have it opened, and went out; I told her I was going for an officer; she then consented to have it opened; and Sweetland found, in my presence, sixty-seven sovereigns, and nineteen half-sovereigns - I made her no promise or threat: as soon as Sweetland took hold of the property, which was tied in a piece of rag, he said, “This feels heavy, like sovereigns; Whose are these?” she came and caught hold of me by the hand, and said it was my property - I asked how she came by it; she said she had taken them out of my bureau, which was down stairs in the parlour; she said the key was in it: I asked her several times how she got them before she told me, but said nothing to induce her; Sweetland said I need not ask her any more - that no threat or promise had been held out and if she chose to tell, it was of no consequence. I put the money into my iron chest, and sent for Valentine; she had lived about nine months with me: I kept money in my bureau, but never missed any till I took stock - it could not have been taken all at once, or I should have known it: I go to my bureau thirty or forty times every day - at times there is not 20l. there, and at other times 200l. or 300l.

STEPHEN SWEETLAND . I am Frost's brother-in-law. I searched the prisoner's box, and found the sovereigns - I said, “Whose property is this? surely they are sovereigns;” she then caught hold of her master's hand, and said, “They are yours, Sir, and I am sorry for it;” Frost was pressing her how she got them - I said as no threat or promise had been held out, it was of no consequence, and if she chose to tell without that she might; she said she took them by one and two at a time, as she had opportunity; I put them into the iron safe, and afterwards gave them to the officer.

BENJAMIN VALENTINE . I am an officer. I was fetched to Mr. Frost's - Sweetland gave me sixty-seven sovereigns and nineteen half-sovereigns; I cautioned the prisoner not to answer me unless she thought proper, and then asked if she had said it was her master's property before I came; she said Yes: I said, “Do you wish to say it is your master's property?” she said Yes.

Prisoner. I beg for mercy.

GUILTY (of stealing to the value of 99s only) . Aged 24.

Transported for Seven Years .

Obituary.-We have this week to record the death of Mrs. Anne Smith, wife of Mr. David Smith of this town. Her funeral was attended by a large number of the residents of the neighbourhood, among whom she had lived with a high reputation for benevolence and unobtrusiveness. The deceased was 62 years of age; and had resided with her husband for 30 years in the house in which she died, the oldest now standing, we believe, in Kiama, and which was built by Mr. Smith during the early part of his residence here. Whatever support under his bereavemcnt my be derived by Mr. Smith from a coniousncss.of the hearty sympathy of all his neighbours will certainly not be wanting in this case.

Family lived at Pheasant Point Kiama

Daughter and two grandchildren Cockerill died from food poisoning (?) in 1913.


There was widespread regret in Kiama on Thursday when news was received of the passing at Thirroul of Mrs. Catherine Smith, who would have reached the ripe old age of 83 in another twelve days.

“Granny” as she was known to everyone, was a lovable old lady and was loved and respected by all who knew her, and was a bright and cheerful personality .who radiated happiness wherever she happened to be, and she was a great favourite with young and old, and despite her years, was full of life and her Scotch accent and witty remarks were a joy to hear. For thirty years she lived in Kiama and during that period made a wide circle of friends, who will mourn her loss deeply.

A few years ago her daughter, Mrs. B. Conway went to live at Thirroul, where. her husband had been transferred and she took her mother to reside with her and surrounded her with loving care and devotion. After her departure from Kiama “Granny” made frequent visits to the town, traveling the train journey on her own; and staying with her old friend, Mrs. S. Marley. Of Pheasant Point. Despite her advanced age, she retained her faculties until the last and still kept up her cheerfulness.

She was entertained at a birthday party at Kiama three years ago, and in addition to a host of friends, there were present her eleven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. All who know her will regret keenly the passing of this grand old lady. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church, at which she was a regular attendant, and the funeral took place yesterday afternoon at the Kiama Presbyterian cemetery, The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 21 August 1937 p 2

(From our Correspondent.)

it is my sad duty to record the death of Mrs. Alfred Smith, who died at her residence, Addison-street, Shellharbor on the 8th of May. The deceased lady was a native of Birmingham, England and sailed for this colony with her husband and two children in May, 1833 arriving in Sydney in October of the same year. She first resided eight years in Parramatta, whence she removed to Wollongong. After living fifteen years in that town, she again moved to Shell harbor, where she spent the remaining thirty-nine years of her life. She was the mother of fifteen children, of whom three daughters and five sons survive her; also eighty-three grandchildren and seventy-five great-grandchildren.

Her life was one of righteousness and well-doing and love to all her fellow creatures with whom she came in contact, and by whom she was over highly' respected and esteemed. She was ever ready to succour and assist, both physically and spiritually, those less fortunate than herself, and when at last, at the ripe old age of 82 years, she was taken from our midst, she died as she had lived, hopefully and peacefully. Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved husband and children, to whom she was always so loving and devoted a wife and mother. Her remains were followed to the Albion Park cemetery by an extensive concourse of people. The Rev. B. Stephens officiated at the grave, where he delivered a most impressive address.

Mrs. Hannah Smith a boarding-house keeper, committed suicide last night by cutting her throat. The Sydney Morning Herald 22 October 1872

Suicide at Wollongong.

An inquest was held by the Coroner of the district, at Wollongong, on Monday morning, on the body of Hannah Smith, who cut her throat on the previous afternoon. It appeared from the evidence, as summarised in the Illawarra Mercury, that the deceased, who was a widow, and aged about sixty-four years was the keeper of a lodging house near the Harp Inn, in Corrimal-street, and very much addicted to drink. At the races she had indulged very freely, and had, in consequence, been scarcely able to leave her bed since. Towards the end of last week she had reduced her usual allowance considerably, and on Saturday had only one nobbier of pale brandy. On Sunday she partook of nothing but a little soup, and was last seen alive by a lodger who gave her a drink of water about 3 o'clock p.m. About 6 o'clock the same person found her lying on the floor beside her bed, from which she had evidently fallen, with a fearful jagged wound in her throat, lifeless and stiff. The case was very carefully gone into, and the jury came unhesitatingly to a verdict— ' That the deceased had died from a wound in the throat inflicted by herself whilst labouring under a fit of temporary insanity, induced by intemperance.' The instrument with which the wound was made was a common table knife, which constable M'Garvie found lying on the floor under the right hand of the deceased.

About eighteen years ago, when a resident of the Kiama district, on the south coast, she became the subject of an internal disease which so preyed upon her mind as to cause, some seven or eight years ago, signs of mental derangement, and eventually complete insanity; and It was from this cause that she died.

We have also to report the death of another near and dear friend, which occurred on Monday morning— that of Mrs. Smith, wife of Mr. Irwin Smith, of ' Allowrie,' Cullinga, and mother of Mr. J. H. Smith, junior proprietor of this journal, and of Mrs. F. Pinkstone. Deceased, whose maiden name was Jane Hardy, a native of Connaught, Ireland, came to the colony in 1851, and was 55 years of age. About eighteen years ago, when a resident of the Kiama district, on the south coast, she became the subject of an internal disease which so preyed upon her mind as to cause, some seven or eight years ago, signs of mental derangement, and eventually complete insanity; and it was from this cause that she died. Deceased leaves a husband, six sons, and two daughters. The eldest of the family, Mr. Irwin Smith, surveyor, Albury district, arrived home from Germanton on Monday night to attend the funeral.

In her sane days it was a pleasure to converse with her, being well informed in the early history of the colony and on political affairs; and she was a ready conversationalist. The loss of her counsel and vivifying influence during the past seven or eight years have been seriously felt by her family, who will receive the sympathy of all friends and neighbours in their affliction. The remains of the deceased were interred yesterday afternoon in the Church of England portion of the Cootamundra public cemetery Cootamundra Herald (NSW : 1877 - 1954) Wednesday 30 June 1886 p 6

A very pretty wedding took place at Bulli on Tuesday last, when Miss Lavinia Dunnet (' Venie') eldest daughter of Mr. Thomas Farrell, J.P., was united in marriage to Mr. Edwin Frederick Thomas Smith, of the railway service, youngest son of the late Mr. E. F. Smith, M. A. Unanderra. The sacred ceremony was celebrated in St. Augustine's Church, with which the bride has been devotedly connected from her infancy. Garlands of evergreens and white flowers beautified the interior of the building to a most picturesque extent. A fairy-like arch of 'living green' spanned the aisle, and under this the happy party passed, The bride was lovely in appearance as well as in the other best attributes of womanly qualities, looked simply charming, robed in a trained gown of fine muslin, much trimmed with rows of narrow satin ribbon with lace and insertion over a skirt of Roman satin, with wreath and veil, and carried a beautiful shower bouquet. It was the 'Coronation Day' of her life, and her mien and manner were queenly and in full accord with the life-long importance of the event. She was attended by three bridesmaids, Misses Mamie Farrell (sister), two cousins Cissie Parkhill and Jessie Campbell who were all dressed in cream hailstorm muslins tucked and trimmed with valencionnes lace and insertion. relieved by touches of blue, and cream hats to match.

They each wore a handsome gold brooch, set with amethysts, gifts of the bridegroom, and carried pretty shower bouquets of snowflakes an daffodils. The bridegroom, with gainly stature and manly bearing. indicative of his character, appeared worthy of the amiable bride, whom it was his good fortune that day to wed. He was supported by Mr. D. Bishop as best man, and Messrs. Jackson Beach, and Harry M'Donald as groomsmen…..Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Saturday 16 August 1902 p 2

f. David Smith m. Ann Davis *


The late Mary Ann Smith, whose death we briefly announced last issue, was the second daughter of the late David Smith, and was born, in the first house ever erected in Kiama, in the year 1834. She was, therefore, at the time of her death, 59 years of age. Her father emigrated to Australiaabout 70 years ago, and was one of the first pioneers in the colony's history of civilization. Soon after his arrival he erected a house at the corner of which has since been proclaimed Manning and Bong Bong streets, and there the history of the deceased and other members of her family commenced. At this time there was, where the town now stands, a good deal of bush, and therefore very few incidents of any note can be furnished of the early days of the family's history on Australian soil. However, by the diligence and thrift characteristic of the settlers of that time, and the exercise of a considerable amount of energy in clearing the land, the parents soon gained a sufficency, which had, since the death of both father and mother, reverted to the members of the family, two sons and two daughters, and which has enabled them to live what might be termed a retired life, After the death of her father the deceased, being the only unmarried member of the family, shared the home comforts of her brother, David, and her sister, wife of the late George Cooke, and resided in that ancient tenement, on the western side of Manning-street, till compelled by the advent of the railway to this district, in common with other members of the family, to find a home elsewhere. The deceased then severed her residence with her brother , and erected a commodious wooden building on the opposite side of the street, where he sisters lived together a peaceful and quiet, yet not altogether secluded, life,

The deceased had been ailing for some considerable time from an internal complaint, which never manifested itself to any alarming extent till about 4 o'clock on Tuesday morning, when the deceased lady as seized with a violent attack of vomiting, which culminated inflammation, and subsequently mortification. The sufferer lingered till shortly after 4 o'clock on Wednesday, when, despite the services and assiduous attentions of Drs. Torrey and Egbert, the sun of her life, with the sun of the day, set to rise in another, and, we believe, a brighter region, …. On Thursday the last mortal remains of the deceased were borne to their resting place at Porter's Garden Cemetery, Kiama, a large number of friends and mourners forming the procession.

The death of a very old resident of the Shoalhaven district in the person of Mrs. Mary Ann Smith, relict of the late Mr. Harry Smith, occurred at her home on Monday afternoon, at the age of 74 years. She had not enjoyed good health for some months past.

Deceased was a member of one of the old pioneering families of this district, being the eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Goodger, born at Yallah, coming to this district with her parents over 60 years ago. For some years she was resident at Comerong Island, where her husband was the manager of the butter factory.

At a later period the late Mr. and Mrs. Smith acquired farming property at Cambewarra, where they engaged in farming until later removing to Berry, subsequently retiring and coming to Nowra to spend the evening of their days. Mrs. Smith was a lady of most amiable disposition, a true Christian in every respect, adherent of the Church of England, and over a lengthy period was an active and valued member of the Ladies' Working Society. She leaves one son, William, to mourn his loss. The mortal remains were laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the Nowra public cemetery, beside those of her husband who had pre-deceased her some nine years ago.

The subject of this brief memoir was born at Kiama, December 3, 1859.

This church has exercised a wonderful influence throughout the years. The call to follow the Saviour, which came in adolescence, was readily responded to, and she had an anchor of the soul during her life’s voyage. She lived later in association with the Bulli and Leichhardt Methodist Churches. 'In the Lakemba Church for 20 years she found delight in the means of grace.

Mrs. Smithers was a Bible student, and found joy in instructing others in the way of life. The home-call came at Katoomba, but the body was brought to the Lakemba Church, where a service was held on Friday 23rd September, at 10 a.m. Afterwards the interment took place at Moorfields. She died in hope, and is now with Christ, which is far better. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 19 November 1932 p 14

Eliza Young Somerville, widow of the late Rev. James Somerville, was the daughter of Dr. J. B. Bennett, for many years Registrar-General of New Zealand, and in his earlier days editor of 'The Watchman,' London. Mrs. Somerville was born in Dublin on 29th July 1837, and had therefore almost attained her 80th year when she passed away last month at her home in Enfield, Burwood Circitt. In 1861 she was united in marriage with the Rev. James Somerville, and for nearly 38 years was the

companion in joys and sorrows and services in a succession of circuits, and in his later period of supernumerary ship; In the Wollongong, Braidwood; Moruya, Castlereagh and Penrith, and the Hawkesbury Circuits, Mrs. Somerville was an excellent helpmeet to her husband, and enjoyed with, him the affection and confidence of all the people of their charge, and of the general public also. In most of those circuits, and in the early days of their connexional history, the conditions of labour were strenuous, and home comforts were not what they are in the present days.

But cheerfulness and courage, along with the blessing of God, supplied what else was lacking, and the ministry of Mr. and Mrs. Somerville was fruithful of lasting results. In 1885 they took ; up their residence in Burwood, and for the whole of that period Mrs. Somerville was connected with the church, and

congregation at Enfield, enjoying, the esteem and confidence of all the ministers who, in turn, have been in charge of the circuit, and of all her fellow-members and workers. Quiet, undemonstrative, -but unfailingly cheerful and hospitable, exhibiting in her life the graces and virtues of meekness, gentleness and goodness, she commended herself to all who knew her as one of God's elect. Her eventide was serene, and her passing peaceful. The funeral services wereconducted (in the absence in Tonga of the circuit minister) by Rev. Dr. Caruthers, assisted by Revs. J. G. Middleton and W. Wall, the Rev. E. E. Crossby, B.A., delivering a short and suitable ad dress at the grave in Rookwood Cemetery. The surviving children are Messrs. G. B. Somerville, of Lismore, and J. A. Somerville, of Burwood; Miss May Somerville and Mrs. B. O. Walker. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 11 August 1917 p 10

By telegraph we learnt on Wednesday night that Mrs. Sommerville, mother of Gilbert Sommerville, of Springdale, died that evening. She was over 70 years of age. The family were old friends of ours from the Shellharbour and Albion Park country on the south coast, and they came here over 20 years ago and purchased the Culver Park property opposite the Frampton estate of the McClintock family, who were also old friends from the coast. One of the sons, the late Mr. James Sommerville, afterwards bought into Combaning pastoral property; and latterly the fine old couple and their son settled in the Springdale country. They have always been widely known and respected, and the news of her death will be received with regret by thousands of friends of the family. The head of the family, Mr. Gilbert Sommerville, died about five years ago. Mrs. John R. Curry, late of Temora, now of the Richmond river district, is a daughter.

One of the oldest members of the Kiama Church, Mrs. Sarah Jane Somerville, passed away on Monday last, aged 82 years. She had a partial stroke a month ago, and suffered much. Her son, Rev. J. H. Somerville, of Mayfield, writes: 'Through it all she proved the sufficiency of Divine grace, and with implicit faith in her Saviour and Lord, awaited the end in great peace of mind and heart.' We tender our sympathy to her aged husband and members of the family. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 30 July 1927 p 5

Living at Woonona in 1903 Electoral Roll- Domestic duties


Mrs Charlotte Southall who was held in the Highest esteem by a wide circle of friends, passed away at the Bulli Hospital on Sunday, aged 62 years. She was a woman of kindly personality, and neighbourly instinct, who met the rebuffs of life's battles with a strong determination and spirit and lived to see her family grown up a credit to her training and wise counsels.

The late Mrs. Southall was born at Dodworth, Yorkshire, England being the second eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Howe. At the age of 15 years, with her parents, she came to N.S.W., and the family settled at Woonona. Later a move was made to Old Greta, and again the family came back to Woonona, where at the age of 21 the deceased met and married John Southall. She lived at Gray Street for a number of years, and then went to live at Catherine Hill Bay, but a few years saw her back again at Grey Street, Woonona, where she remained for 45 years. Her husband fell into bad health 28 years ago, but nothing daunted the deceased set to and worked for and reared a family of six children, carrying out the duties of caretaker of the Woonona Public School for 19 years. Eleven years ago she was left a widow, seven years ago she suffered a still further bereavement by the death of her eldest daughter, Doris, who left a baby ten ndays old. Never daunted by this blow of fate, Mrs. Southall faced the task of rearing a baby, and continued until failing health necessitated the boy's father relieving her of the responsibility. Six weeks ago she was taken ill, and on recovery went to Appin to recuperate, where she was again taken ill and was removed to her home and then to the Bulli Hospital, where the end came as stated,

To mourn the loss of an affectionate mother there are left Mrs. H. Barclay (Harriet), J. W. Southall, Mrs. E. Hain (Phyllis), Mrs. J. Clark (Emma), and V. Southall.

The remains were interred in the Bulli C.E. Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 10 May 1935 p 10

At the Police Court, on Monday, the charge against Thomas Charlton, of doing grievous bodily harm to Sarah Spears or Williams, was heard.

The evidence of Dr. Lee was that on the 23rd December, being at his surgery, Kembla Heights, he, in answer to a summons, went to the Kerosene Works track, and there attended Sarah Spears. She was lying on her back with face cut in many places and almost insensible ; her dress was torn and disarranged; had her removed to Wollongong Hospital ; there was a large stone close to her with a good deal of blood on it ; her face, dress and hair were also much besmeared ; found that her face was much lacerated ; the small bones, the bridge of the nose and the bone above it were broken in; the ball of her left eye was burst and the eye destroyed ; she had some teeth knocked out and there were many bruises on her body, the worst a cut on her left leg ; in the Hospital she showed signs of drink ; the injuries caused a severe shock to her system, from which she had not recovered; she was considerably disfigured, and would be unfit for work for a long time.

Mrs. O'Halloran, of the Mt. Kembla Hotel, deposed that she had seen the accused and Mrs. Williams in the afternoon at the hotel; later on accused came back to the hotel; his singlet was torn and had blood on it ; he roughly asked her for a shirt in which to go to Wollongong by the coach. Ellen O'Halloran saw accused and Mrs. Williams leave the hotel together in the afternoon.

John O'Halloran, licensee of the hotel, saw both there in the afternoon ; Mrs. Williams bought a bottle of whisky from him ; saw Charlton about half-past five again in the bar; his guernsey was torn and he was the worse of liquor and excited ; gave him a bottle of beer on condition that he would go home ; afterwards assisted Constable Roberts with Mr. T. Cunningham to handcuff Carlton ; when arrested accused said he would do for witness some day and send Constable Roberts to the Hospital as he had done others that day ; Charlton had to be tied down in the cart.

Thomas Williams deposed that he had been living with Sarah Spears for some years ; was called to see her lying on the Kerosene track by Mrs. Stone : helped to bring her to the Hospital and asked her on the way who did it ; she replied Thomas Charlton. Mrs. Emma Stone deposed that she was going home by the track that afternoon with her husband; saw Mrs. Williams lying in the state before described; there was a large stone with blood on it close to her head.

Percy Stone, a lad of 14, deposed that while going along the track to meet his parents he saw Mrs. Williams and Charlton sitting together.

Sarah Spears deposed that she had walked home via the Kerosene track with Charlton; she had had three drinks that day had a bottle of whiskey, of which accused had a drink accused made An immoral proposal to her, and on her resisting, he struck her violently several times and knocked her down.

John Morrison, miner, deposed to having seen Charlton and Mrs. Williams sitting together on the track.

Joseph Brisbane gave similar evidence.

Constable Roberts deposed that when he was arresting accused he threatened to give him more than he had given the woman that day. Charlton neither questioned the witnesses nor made any statement.

He was committed for trial at the Wollongong Sessions on March 6th. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Saturday 17 February 1900 p 4

Brutal Outrage at Mount Kembla.

“WOLLONGONG, Tuesday.-The usually quiet community of Mount Kembla was thrown into a state of excitement on Saturday evening by the reported perpetration of a brutal outrage, an elderly woman named Williams, wife of a miner employed at the Mount Kembla Colliery, being the victim. The ferociousness of the assault will be fully apparent when it is explained that one of the woman's eyes was battered or gouged out, and; her face otherwise so mutilated as to be almost unrecognisable. From what can be gleaned, Mrs. Williams was on her way home; accompanied by a male-friend. The latter is alleged to have been in “an advanced stage of inebriety.' The couple had left the main road, with a view, of taking a short route to Mount Kembla Heights, when, shortly afterwards, frantic screams were heard from the direction in which they had gone: Assistance was soon at hand, and Mrs. Williams was found in a semi-conscious condition, with the injuries mentioned above. Á large stone of considerable weight was even then resting on her face. She was, however able to give details of the assault, and the name of her assailant. Constable Roberts, of the Figtree, was sent for, and the male friend of Mrs. Williams was arrested after a violent struggle, and was conveyed to Wollongong Gaol. Mrs. Williams was taken to the hospital, and her injuries dressed by Dr. Lee, .who found it necessary to put a large number of stitches in her head and face. A justice of the peace was in attendance to take the woman's deposition's, but that extreme step was not deemed necessary as she showed, signs of improvement, and is now considered to be out of danger.

As briefly mentioned in a previous issue, the death of Mrs. Mary Ann Speer (wife of Mr. Thomas Speer, of Foxground) took place at her husband's residence on Monday evening, the 18th instant. The deceased lady was the second daughter of the late Mr. Alexander Boyd, of County Fermanagh, Ireland. She was born on the 24th May, 1835, and came to Australia with her brother and sister, landing in Melbourne in the year 1853.

After spending six months there she moved to Foxground, where she was married on the 12th Jan., 1858, and was a constant resident of that locality for 54 years. She reared a family of nine, five daughters and four sons, all of whom survive her. Her countless kind acts in time of sickness and bereavement will long be remembered by the residents of Foxground. The late Mrs. Speer was a good citizen, and lived an honourable and industrious life. She had been in failing health for some months, and a fortnight prior to her death she was seized with a severe attack of bronchitis. Dr. H. Fox was in constant attendance, and despite all that medical skill and careful nursing could do, she passed peacefully away at the advanced age of 72 years. Her remains were in- terred in the Church of England portion of the Gerringong cemetery The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 30 November 1907 p 2

When her first husband died she was left a widow with six young children. At a meeting held at Broadhead's hotel, Clifton, last Thursday night, Mr. M'Laren in the chair, it was decided to make an effort towards securing relief for the widow and children of the late John Greer, who met with such a dreadful death in the Bulli mine last week. The deceased was formerly employed at the Coal Cliff mine, and was a well-known and highly respected resident of Clifton, at which place the family of the deceased are living. A committee of the following gentlemen was appointed to work up a concert — Messrs. W. Milsom (secretary), Conlson. Austin, Clarke, Rlioden, Davis, Car'rick, G. and N. Smith. Vocal and financial support should be heartily accorded, as the widow and family are in circumstances which appeal for assistance. The concert takes place at Clifton next Friday evening.

Came to the Illawarra with her family as a young girl. From the mid-1830's she lived with James Dennis who is believed to have been the father of her first 8 children. James died in 1860 and in 1865 she bore her last child, a son, to Eleazor King. Although she never married, and it is unlikely she received any formal education, Elizabeth managed to become financially independent. By mid-1866, she had been suffering from tuberculosis for over a year. In September 1866 she made a detailed will, leaving the bulk of her estate to her 2 youngest children, Amelia Emily Dennis and Eleazor King Jnr and established a trust fund to provide for their education. Four months later, Elizabeth died. The entry in the family Bible reads: `Elizabeth Spinks departed this life on the 22 of January 1867 in the age of 46 years her end wose peace'.

About 16 years ago her husband came to this district and decided to take a farm at Upper Orara. But on his return to the South Coast to bring Mrs. Spinks back. wilh him be took ill and died. A son Mr. Alfred Spinks then took over the farm and his mother came with him. Since that time both mother and son have been valued residents of the district. Mrs Spinks for some years has divided her time between her son on the Orara and her daughter in Coffs Harbour. Up till about 12 months ago she did not know a day’s illness, and the energy she showed in her beloved pastime of gardening made her appear to be much younger than she really was. Then she became affected with heart trouble, and for the past seven or eight months has not been able to get about. During that period she has been in Coffs Harbour devoted attended by her daughter Mrs Greig. Her death has been expected for some weeks, and as she sufferd much pain, it came as a release.

Two sons and two daughters survive. The daughters are Mrs. John Burling,- of Queensland and Mrs.

Greig, Coffs Harbor. Messrs. James Robert Spinks of Moruya are the sons. Coffs Harbour Advocate (NSW : 1907 - 1942; 1946 - 1954) Friday 20 May 1927 p 2

By the death of Mrs. Mary Sproule, widow of the late Mr. S. Sproule, which sad event occurred at Berry on Sunday afternoon last (as briefly reported in Wednesday's issue) there has been removed from the activities of that part of the district a woman who played a conspicuous part in the. civic life of Shoalhaven and in helping to build up the State. Born at

Berry (then Broughton Creek) 1848, the daughter of a pioneer family (Norris), she married in 1870 Mr. Samuel Sproule, a member of a well known pioneer famly in the Kiama district. The young couple settled down to farming pursuits in Berry, and there they resided practically all their lives. The late Mr. Sproule was for years an alderman of the Berry Municipality, and in many other ways was an active and public-spirited citizen. He died eight years ago, and since then his partner resided with one or other of her daughters — of late years with Mrs Dean, at Berry . The result of the marriage was eleven daughters nine of whom still survive.

They are a body of women of whom any parents might be proud, and seven of them have settled down in different parts of the State, following their mother's good example and doing their duty as Commonwealth, W. Boles (Kiama),Mrs Clarke .(Port Kembla), Mrs. Griffith (Bellevue Hill Sydney), Mrs C Wiley (Nowra) Mrs. Dean (Berry), with' Misses Lily and Florrie (resident in Sydney) In the late Mrs Sproule left 32 grand- children and 3 great grandchildren wife and mother should be. She brought up her children in the fear and nurture and admonition of the Lord and trained them in those duties and qualifications essential to successful and happy domestic life, and they have all done her infinite credit.

To her daughters she was an ideal and pattern, on which they moulded their characters. She devotedly did her duty to them by precept and example, and they have every reason to call her blessed and to revere her memory.

To those in her own particular neighbourhood she was a good neighbour, and ever ready to render a helping hand in cases of need, sickness, sorrow, or distress. Naturally with a large family, her life was full of activity, but she was always cheerful; though busy with domestic affairs she was ing others. Full of years (almost 75) and honor amonst a large circle of friends and acquaintances, the end came rather suddenly. She had a paralytic seizure on July 6th, after a day of usual activity, and was found unconscious in her room. Everything humanly possible was done for her, but she never recovered consciousness, and passed away in the calm of the last Sabbath, evening. The mortal remains were interred on Modday after-noon in the old cemetery at Berry, alongside ,those of her late husband.

Mrs. Sarah Sproule who passed away in Wollongong Hospital on Monday last had lived most of her life in, the Jamberoo district. She was the youngest daughter of the late William and Ellen Jackson, of Dumbartonshire, Scotland, and was born at Auenel, Victoria, in 1873.

Mrs Adelaide Jane Stacy, perhaps better known than any lady who ever graced this expanse of the Hunter Valley, went to her Great creator in the early hours of this morning.

'The deceased leaves behind her a vivid memorial of her life in the many facilities she was able to get for Singleton by her influence, and for the part she played in making the life of woman a more pleasant one than it was in the days when she first saw the light of day.

The late Mrs Stacy came to the Singleton district as a young bride, and she had been a resident here until the time of her demise. She was thus associated with the district for nigh on 50 years of the 77 years span of her long life.

When the late Mrs Stacy came to Singleton as the bride of Mr Percy Stacy, who passed away in 1924, she made her home at Mirallie, Reedy Creek. After time, however, the couple moved to” Warromean, Scott's Plat, which had been deceased's home ever since. The shift to Warromean was made in 1912.

Mrs Stacy came here from Shellharbour, on the South Coast. She was a daughter of the late Mr and

Mrs W. J. Allen. The work of deceased for humanity goes back a long way, though it became more and more manifest as the march of time continued….. Singleton Argus (NSW : 1880 - 1954) Monday 29 September 1947 p 2

Caroline Staff, her joiner husband Joseph and the five children had been living at Dapto for 18 months before the rape of Alice.

John Holland was indicted for committing a rape on Alice Fanny Staff, a girl of eleven years of age, at Dapto, on the 15th November. The evidence of the girl was that as she washing some pinafores at the foot of the bank of the creek, Holland, who is a stout lad of seventeen years, passed along the top of the bank with a man; the man uttered a joke to which she made no reply; her parents were away from home at the time; in about a quarter of an hour Holland returned alone, and he immediately commenced taking liberties with her, using grossly indecent language; she ordered him away, saying she would tell her father, but he said he did not care; he threw her down, and she struggled up again; again he threw her down, threatening to throw her into the creek if she resisted, and closing her mouth with his hand, he with great violence effected his purpose, and then ran away. The evidence of the girl's mother and of Dr. Falker, went to show that the crime had been committed, and the other testimony corroborated that of the girl as to the general circumstances. Holland was quite a stranger to her. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, but recommended Holland to mercy on account of his youth. His Honor, after some reflection, said he could see nothing in the case to lessen the abhorrence of a crime committed with brutal violence, and the law of the colony still punishing rape with death, he sentenced Holland to death, promising however, to lay the jury's recommendation before the Executive.

A magisterial inquiry was held at the office of the Coroner (Mr C. C. Russell) on Thursday Inst, touching the death of Catherine Stafford, wife of Ernest Stafford, Mount Kembla.

Ernest Stafford stated that the deceased was his wife. They were married at the Presbyterian Manse by Rev. McKay on October 3rd, 1896. There had been four children of the union, the youngest being six weeks old. After the birth of the first child his wife was very ill. She was in the hospital and showed a weakness of mind. She was also very ill after the birth of the last child. Her mind seemed to give way, and she was constantly grumbling and dreading something. She was a source of great uneasiness to witness. On Monday morning she left the bedroom unknown to him, and when he missed her he jumped out of bed and followed. He found her beside a waterhole at Mount Kembla and brought her back. She said ' why did you not let me alone, it would have been all over now.' Next morning she tried to get out again but his sister caught her and brought her back again. Witness talked with her and by the doctor's orders remonstrated with her. She said, ' Well I must have been silly.’ In this way he was put off his guard. On Tuesday night he sat up with his wife watching her. While he was in the kitchen she tried to get out of the window. He heard her and came into her room, when, she got into bed again. He then left the lamp burning in the bedroom and went out into the kitchen. Witness had hardly got into the kitchen when he noticed the lamp go out. He went into the room again and she hopped into bed and concealed her face under the clothes. This happened at midnight. On Wednesday morning he induced her to go out for a walk about half past ten. On their return his wife went into the bedroom, witness' sister following her. Almost immediately his sister sang out, 'Come here Ernest,   Kate has cut her throat'. He went in.

She was standing up with her fingers in the wound, opening it. The knife (a bread knife) was on the table. Blood was flowing from the wound. He caught her in his arms. She gurgled out, ' Let me go '. He still held her in his arms and got her on to the bed. She continued to pull the wound open with her fingers. He then sent for the doctor and the police. He put a bit of rag round her throat and stood beside her holding down her hands. She did not speak. When the doctor and the police came, he left the room. She died that morning at two o'clock. There was no cause as far as I know for his wife to take her life. They were in comfortable circumstances, and lived happily together. The knife was one of those wavy-edged bread knives, and was in use in the house. He thought she had secreted that bread-knife from breakfast time.

Dr. H. H. Lee stated that he first saw the deceased on Monday last. She had been recently confined. She had complained of some peculiar symptoms, which to his mind seemed altogether imaginary, and were not referable to any particular organ, otherwise she spoke rationally. He was summoned on Wednesday morning. He found deceased then suffering from a wound about three inches long across her throat, her windpipe being divided half through and she had collapsed from want of blood. She spoke to witness, telling him that she was in great pain. She was in a condition to tell him how she received the wound if she liked before he left the house. She made no reference to it.

Constable Roberts stated that on Wednesday morning he received information that Mrs. Stafford had cut her throat and he proceeded to the house with the doctor. He asked for the knife she had used. The husband handed him the knife. Mrs. Stafford said 'I sneaked it; I did it myself.' A flow of blood stopped further conversation. Stafford and his wife were most respectable people and to his own knowledge, had lived comfortably and happily.

The coroner found that deceased died from haemorrhage from a wound in her throat, inflicted by herself. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Saturday 23 May 1903 p 2


A fatal accident occurred in Mt. Pleasant mine on Tuesday, when a miner, Ernest Stafford, met his death by a fall of coal, which crushed his head in a terrible manner. Stafford was underneath holeing a shot when the coal came off at a slip, carrying away the sprag with it. The accident happened within a few minutes of the time when Stafford would have finished his shift. The unfortunate man was a widower and leaves four children, the oldest being only 11 years of age. He was the son of Mr. A. Stafford, of Mt, Kembla. His death is a great bereavement as he had his motherless family to care for, which he did in an exemplary manner.

Kentish Creek starts in a gorge a short distance from the Appin-Wilton Rd. and runs for 5 miles to join the Cordeaux River No 3 Dam. In the early 1920s the Stanbridge family settlement was resumed by the Water Board for making this dam. As the filling of the dam did not affect the family property the only remaining family member, Elizabeth Carter, was allowed to live there until her death in 1929 aged 81. Her parents, Thomas and Elizabeth are buried on the property but the children are buried in Wollongong Cemetery. The property has reverted to its original state and it is hard to imagine that apples from the property were sold in Wollongong in the 1920s.

Mr Ralston, instructed by Messrs Clayton and Pratt (as agents for Me'ssrs Owon and Sons, of Wollongong), appeared for the petitioner, Rubina Dix formerly Wilson, who proceded against her husband James Henry Dix, coal-miner, asking for a dissoulution of her marriage on the grounds of his desertion of her for three years and upwards without reasonable cause, and leaving her without adequate means of support. The hearing of this case had been commenced on the previous day. Ther was no appearance of the respondent. The petioner’s evidence went to show that she was married at Wollongong by thy Rev H Waugh, according to the rites of the Presbyterian Church, on December 11, 1889 and subsequently her husband lived with her relatives, and then with his own people, refusing to work to keep himself, the petitioner, or their child. Having heard the evidence and counsel in argument, His Honor reserved judgment The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Friday 1 September 1899 p 3

His Honor now granted a decree nisi, petitioner to have custody of her child, respondent to pay costs. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Wednesday 13 September 1899 p 4


Mr. Justice Simpson delivered his reserved judgment yesterday in the suit in which Rubina Dix, formerly Wilsons petitioned for a dissolution of her marriage with James Henry Dix, on the ground of constructive desertion. The petitioner was only 16 years of age when she married the respondent, with whom she lived, at Corrimal, near Wollongong, for a time, and as he showed but little disposition to do anything she asked him to work. His reply was that he would not work — 'he was not made to work.' In giving judgment, his Honor said that Mr. Ralston, as counsel for the petitioner, relied upon the case of Giblett and Giblett, and he referred also to another case. What his Honor had to consider was whether there had been constructive desertion in the present suit. The petitioner was married to the respondent, who was a miner, in December, 1889. After the ceremony, the respondent did no work for about four months. He lived in the Wollongong district, and, in point of fact, he refused to work. On one or more occasions, according to the evidence of the petitioner, he said he was not made to work. Whilst living there the petitioner gave birth to a child; and at the time of her illness she was not supplied, as she alleged, with sufficient necessaries of life. She had food, but there were other things wanting which a person in her condition of health required. The house in which she was living at the time was hardly a fit place for a woman in her condition. However, things went on; the mother of the petitioner used to help her. The respondent and his wife afterwards went to a place called Oberon. Between the birth of the child and his going to Oberon, Dix, according to his wife, did not work at all. At Oberon the same state of things existed. There he took her to a hotel for a little while, and he afterwards drove her to his uncle's house. When, however, he came with the cart to drive her there he was drunk. He told her also that she was not to be surprised if people at Oberon called her Mrs. Smith. They stayed at the uncle's house for a week or so, and then they drove to a place called Native Dog. Some woman appeared there who said she was the grandmother of the respondent. She also said she was not going to keep him, as she had enough to do to keep herself. There they remained for three months with the stepfather of the respondent, yet the latter did no work. Dix then built a mud house for his wife. Of course there were mud houses and mud houses. As his Honor said at the time the case was before him, a mud house might be a very comfortable house, indeed, but he did not suppose, from what the petitioner had said, that the house her husband built was a very comfortable one. There she complained first of having had no bread, then of having had no meat. Then there was a little mutton, but it did not appear oftener than two or three times a month. The petitoner swore there was no food for the child; that she fed it on a loaf of bread she got and some potatoes. All this time the respondent was unwilling to work. During the first fortnight she was there, petitioner deposed that she had nothing to eat but cold potatoes. The husband lived on the same food. As a result, she got thin, and so did he. He used, she said, to bring a couple of chops home now and then, but he never gave them to her. He kept them for himself. She eventually wrote to her mother, and complained of her position. She was left with very little clothing, and the child, as far as his Honor could remember the evidence, had scarcely any clothing at all. The brother proceeded to the place, and she accompanied him to Wollongong. After she arrived there she wrote to her husband, and before she left she told him where she was going. He did not say anything, and his Honor had no doubt that he was quite contented she should go.

From that day to this she had never heard from him, nor had she received any support from him.

Under the circumstances, it was contended that there had been constructive desertion. His Honor was of opinion that the case was governed by the decision of the Full Court in Giblett and Giblett, and accordingly granted a decree nisi, making it returnable in two months.

Suspected Infanticide at Wollongong

On Thursday the police arrested a young woman named Maud Gillman, 22 years of age, on suspicion of being the mother of a child whose body was found on the rocks near the ladies' bathing-place early in the week. At an inquiry initiated by the Coroner on Wednesday, Dr. Thompson deposed to having made a post-mortem examination, from which he was satisfied that the child was born alive, and that death was due to suffocation. In consequence of suspicion, and from information received, two constables in plain clothes on Thursday afternoon proceeded to the house of Mrs Ellis in Upper Crown street and arrested the girl Gillman. Finding that she was suspected she at once admitted the matter she was suspected she at once admitted maternity of the child, and that she had placed it where it was found, She states that she is a native of Adelong, and came to this district from Victoria some months ago. She was engaged to be married to a man at Albury, who was the father of the child, but he deceived her. Meanwhile she came to Wollongong, and had resided or was engaged as servant at different places, including Clifton, at the Terminus Hotel in town, and at Mr, W. Beach's at Dapto. About the beginning of the present month she came in from Dapto and boarded for a week or two at the Terminus Hotel. She states that on the night of the 12th or early on the morning of the 13th she gave birth to the child, that she fainted and did not recover consciousness for a couple of hours, when she found herself lying on the child, which was dead. She then wrapped the body in a nightdress and kept it concealed until next evening, when she took it down and laid it on the rocks. She then left the hotel and went to live with Mrs. Ellis, where she resided until arrested. A young men who had been keeping company with the girl of late was suspected of having been concerned in the matter, and he was brought in by the police from Clifton but it appeared from letters from her in his possession, and from the girl's statement, that he was wholly unaware of the condition she was in, much less having had anything to do with the disposal of the body. According to arrangement, she was to have been married to this young man on Monday fortnight. The girl was brought before the Bench on Friday, and charged with the wilful, murder of her child. She was remanded to the Coroner's Court. The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser 31 July 1888

His wife deposed that he had threatened to commit suicide by throwing himself into the Hunter River, and she feared that unless be was restrained, he would carry his threat into execution. He was suffering from brain disease, and each succeeding summer became worse. The bench called upon defendant to enter into his own recognizance in £40, and to find two sureties of £20, to be of good behaviour for twelve months ; in default of finding sureties, to be imprisoned for one month.

We regret to have to record the death of Mrs, Stenhouse, who for eight years was matron of the Albert Memorial Hospital Wollongong, filling the position in an admirable manner. Mrs Stenhouse never fully recovered from the shock of her husband's death about 12 months ago, but, although she had been ailing at intervals since that time, death was not expected and came quite suddenly yesterday morning, even before the services of a doctor could be obtained,

The cause of death was heart disease.

She leaves a daughter aged about 17 years, for whom profound sympathy is generally felt, bereft as she now is of both father and mother. The deceased, before coming to Wollongong, was matron of the Wellington Hospital for 11 years, and filled a similar position in St. Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, also for 11 years.

Margaret Sarah Stewart, formerly Sweeny, petitioned for a divorce from James Stewart, on the ground of drunkenness and non-support. Mr. H. L. Whitten appeared for petitioner.

His Honor said there was a difficulty in the case. The question was, Could an industrious woman who, by her exertions, got a livelihood be said to be left without means of support? The matter was of sufficient importance not to give a hasty decision, and it could wait till the appeal in another case had been determined. The decision was reserved. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Thursday 16 June 1904 p 7

Divorce Suit.

In the Divorce Court, on Wednesday, Margaret S. Stewart, formerly Sweeney, petitioned for a divorce from James Stewart, on the ground of drunkeness and non-support. The parties were married in December, 1881, at Wollongong, according to the Anglican rites. Petitioner said she lived with her husband at Wollongong. He was a shoemaker, and remained such for about eight years after their marriage. Five years after they home united, she first noticed that be was drinking. He took a livery stable, and later the bootmaking business was given up. Six years ago he was still drinking, and he gradually got worse. His business was practically that of a carrier, and he made about £16 a month. Out of this amount she got on an average from about £1 a month.

She did not know what became of the balance. The business was sold, last year for 411 pounds and this went to pay his debts. She kept boarders, and was just able to pay her way. His drinking was a constant habit. His Honour said the difficulty he felt was as to whether a woman, who was earning her own living, could be said to be left without support. He reserved his judgment, pending a decision upon the point in another case. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Saturday 18 June 1904 p 11

The decree nisi would therefore be granted, returnable in one month, the petitioner to have custody of the child. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Wednesday 7 September 1904 p 2

1903 Electoral roll –living at Minnamurra Domestic Duties.

The following is a tribute written by Mr. John Mancy, a Kiama resident, to the late Mrs. M. J. Stewart.

On the 7th May there passed from this district a truly blithe spirit in the person of Mrs. M. J. Stewart, of Minnamurra House. Providentially her illness was mercifully short and she was spared the ordeal of leaving, for the -last time, her beautiful old home and its charming setting among a wealth of trees, shrubs and flowers-the children of her brain and the work of her hands.

She was unconscious from the sudden onset of her illness till the end. For almost 29 years I have enjoyed the privilege of frequently taking the mid-day meal with Mrs. Stewart and “the boys,” Bill and Ross, and, until 1929 (when he died) Mr. Andrew Stewart. As hostess Mrs. Stewart combined in one person an excellent cook, a kindly and thoughtful friend who possessed a sound working philosophy of 'life, coupled with a lively sense of humour. When one crossed the creek and entered the venerable home one entered an atmosphere of quiet charm, and somehow worries were banished and cheerfulness reigned. In a past day when Mrs. Stewart was younger and better able to cope with the labor involved many notable guests came to seek rest and refreshment at the House. Mrs. Stewart entertained among many others the late Dr. Wright, Archbishop of Sydney, and his sister, many Anglican ministers, and the late Rev. G. M. Torbert, of Scots Church, Kiama, the late W. A. Holman, brilliant orator and Prem , talented black and white artist of the Bulletin, Mr. Eldershaw, artist in water colours, also two most delightful ladies to meet whom was a privilege. Mr's. Stewart, mother of Sir Frederick Stewart was a charming and friendly person, and Miss Lilian Frost, organist at Pitt Street Congregational Church, acclaimed by competent judges as the greatest woman organist and the equal of most male musicians in Australia.

The walls of the dining room at Minnamurra House resemble a small. picture gallery, being hung with numerous pictures in oils, water colours and crayons, tributes of affection and appreciation from talented artists, both male and female, whose only regret is that those pleasant days are gone. Kiama Independent (NSW : 1947 - 1954) Wednesday 20 May 1953 p 2


We deeply regret to record the death in Kiama Hospital on Thursday last week of Mrs. Mary Jane Stewart, of Minnamurra House, Jamberoo at the age of 83 years.

Mrs. Stewart who had been born at Saddleback and lived her life in the district had enjoyed good health but was taken suddenly ill on Thursday.

In her younger days she was well known for her work in the Women's Guild and for her ability as a horse woman. She often judged at local shows and took prizes at Sydney and other shows.

She was the daughter of the late Robert and Mary Jones and was married at Richmond to Mr. Andrew William Stewart who ran a bakery at Jamberoo.

She was the sister of Jack, Fred, All, Sarah (Mrs. Pike, Kiama), Emily (Mrs. E. Keys, Wollongong), Lillian (Mrs. Thompson, Bowral), and leaves two sons, Ross and Will.

Mrs. Stewart was a grand old lady and was respected by all who knew her for her kindly disposition.

Coroner's Court.

The adjourned inquest, concerning the death of Mrs. Sarah Stewart, was resumed…

Dr. R. N. Gaggin, Government Medical Officer, deposed : On Thursday, 4th instant, I viewed the body of deceased at Mrs. Vardy's. Next day I made a post mortem on the body.

I examined the passages in connection with child birth. I found them in a very sound condition, reflecting credit on the midwife's care. In the abdomen I found the organs normal. Found the lungs very healthy. The sac of the heart contained more fluid than usual. The heart itself was very small, and the vessels which nourished, it contracted. The heart was also fatty. The cause of death in my opinion, was heart failure, probably due to the muscular exertion in stepping from the cab and handing up the fare to the driver, and the excitement of a somewhat crowded street. I did not examine the brain.

Emily Charters, a certified nurse, deposed she kept a private hospital. Mrs. Stewart was admitted to my hospital on January 26, and remained till after her confinement. She was confined on the 26th. Everything passed off well, and there were no complications of any kind. On February 4 deceased was apparently well, and said she was quite strong enough to go home. I left my residence with deceased and the baby in a cab on the afternoon of the 4th. I considered it perfectly safe for deceased to leave my hospital. We talked all the way to Mrs. Vardy's. The day had been warm, but there was a cool breeze blowing. I got out of the cab with the child, and deceased then stepped out.

She went to pay the cabman but staggered, and fell on the pavement. I thought it was a faint, and I had her carried inside. I did all I could for her. She came round after and sat up. She spoke to me, saying ' I'm better.' She asked me to loosen her stays, as she was swelling. She swooned, and her face was this time livid, and I sent for Dr. Muller, who arrived shortly. He said the case was hopeless, and she died soon afterwards. Deceased never complained at any time of her heart.

Charles Stewart, husband of deceased, deposed he was a farmer at Rosebank. Deceased would have been 38 years of age next June. We lived at Rosebank 8 years. Deceased was the mother of 7 children. She was a native of Jamberoo. I last saw deceased on January 30 at Nurse Charters'.

She then said she felt better than ever she did. Have been married 15 years. She complained of her lungs, but not the heart. She had no property.

Senior-Sergeant Tippett also gave evidence.

The jury after a few minutes' retirement, returned a verdict that death resulted from natural causes, viz., heart failure. They further found that every care was exercised by the midwife, and added a rider that in their opinion something ought to be done by the Government or the local authorities, to provide a morgue for Lismore.

On Friday last one Keiraville's oldest and most highly respected residents, in the person of Mrs, Wm. Stoker, sen., passed away after a lingering illness. Whilst her health permitted, she took an active part in all movements in the village and will be greatly missed, as she was always willing and ready to help in cases of sickness, doing so at times when she herself was ill. The large attendance at the funeral bore testimony of the esteem in which the deceased was held. The remains were interred at the Methodist cemetery, Wollongong.,

Rev. J. Ward Harrison officiating at the graveside. Mrs. Stoker was born at Halliwell, county of Northumberland, but for some time before coming out to Australia resided at Ryhope, in Durham. She leaves a husband and two sons (J. Stoker and W. Stoker, jun.), to mourn the loss of a loving wife and mother. The Keiraville Mechanics' Institute flag was flying at half-mast out of respect, to Mrs. Stoker, who was a life member and had been connected with the institution since its inception.

1903 Electoral roll –living at Corrimal St Wollongong Domestic Duties. Husband a dealer.


By the death of Mrs. Emily Stoyles, the wife of Mr. J. B. Stoyles, of 27 Ellen street, Wollongong, the town has lost an estimable citizen, and one who has given much public service.

Her husband, too, has given 28 years .of civic service as an alderman of Wollongong and the Shellharbour councils.

In addition he has been a member of the Wollongong A. and U. Society for close on 30 years — a record of public service that is highly creditable. The Bowling Club also appredates his membership and help.

Without the valued assistance of his good wife, Mr. Stoyles readily admits that he could not possibly have accomplished what he has.

She was a wonderful help-meet, not only in the direction indicated, but also in her home and in the dealing business her husband has so successfully conducted in Ellen st., for so many years.

She was his accountant and director-in-chief of the business, while Mr Stoyles was attending to the outside portion of it. Her loss is an inseparable one.

The late Mrs. Stoyles, who was 72 years of age, arrived at Wollongong 40 years ago with her husband and a young family. She has seen the town and district grow from very small beginnings until to-day, Wollongong is not far off being a City.

In the progress, since those far-off days, Mrs. Stoyles has played an important part, and she leaves it all the better for her having resided in it. . . .

In the Great War her patriotic work was wonderful.

Of the union there are three daughters and five sons, all of whom are leading exemplary lives, and following in the footsteps of their parents. In order of- age, they are: Irene (Mrs. Hogan) Undercliffe, Walter (Yass), Jack, Edward, George, Doris, Alma and Fred.

Mrs. Stovles had enjoyed robust health up till about eight months ago, but the end was not expected.

On Wednesday last her eldest daughter came from Sydney and took her for a drive in the car. About 9 p.m. she was enjoying listening to the radio, but a few minutes later she suffered a heart seizure and the end came a few minutes later.

The funeral will take place this (Friday) afternoon at 3. After a short service at St. Michael's Church, the cortege will move to the C. of E. cemetery.

Although stricken with grief yesterday, Mr. Stoyles expressed his high appreciation of the action of the neighbours and others who had rallied around him attending to details and offering any assistance in their power.

After suffering long and patiently death claimed the body of Mrs. Florence Strong, of Clunes, on Wednesday night. Deceased, who was 65 years of age, died from an internal complaint. She was an old resident of the district, her husband predeceasing her about 20 years; she also lost a son eight years ago. Deceased, who was highly respected by all classes, leaves a large family. The funeral, which will be conducted by Mr. T. Riley, will leave her late residence for the Methodist portion of the Clunes cemetery at noon to-day. Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Friday 14 March 1919 p 2


The late Florence Strong was born in County Donegal, Ireland, in the year 1854. Her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Robert Boyd, came out to this country when their family was quite young, and settled at Broughton Village, in the Berry district. On 6th April, 1875, Mrs. Strong was married to the late Alexander Strong, an honourable and godly man. Mr. and Mrs. Strong made their home at Harley Hill, near Berry, where a large family, six boys and four girls, were born, and lived until about nine years ago, when they came to the R.R. and settled in Clunes. Mrs. Strong's career was one of much sorrow and struggle. They had only been married 19 years, and the youngest child was only eighteen months old, when the father was called home. But with all the instincts of a devoted godly mother, and with a heart that was big and brave, she set her face to the tremendous task, and by the sheer dint of courage and toil and whatever assistance could be given by the willing hands of her growing children, she was able to keep the home together and educate and train her children.

Late Mrs. James Strong.

There passed away peacefully on Wednesday, 7th inst., at her late residence, Burringbar, Mrs. Margaret Jane Strong, wife of James Strong, senr. The deceased lady, a native of Donegal (Ireland), arrived in the colony in 1863 by the Ocean Express with her parents, who took up their residence at Woodhill, near Berry, being amongst the earliest settlers who pioneered the South Coast district. They engaged in the dairy farming industry enduring the many trials of the early settlers. In 1858 the late Mrs. Strong married Mr James Strong, who came to the colonies by the same boat as deceased. Mr. and Mrs. Strong made their first start in life at Kiama, following the call of the soil and afterwards at Brogher's Creek (Berry). Adverse conditions next saw the Strong family migrate to the fertile North Coast, settling first at Clunes and afterwards at Dunoon. After several years residence at these centres the Strong family came to Main Arm, Mullumbimby and finally to their present residence at Burringbar. Wherever they dwelt their kindly manner won the friendship of one and all. The strenuous life of many trials led by the deceased lady and her husband, who have faced the ordeal bravely and who have reared a family of eight children, saw a breaking up of the fine constitution about four years ago. Since then the late Mrs. Strong has suffered a considerable amount of sickness and as a result the best physicians in Sydney were consulted, and finally Dr. Page, of Grafton, who found it necessary to perform a serious operation. Some three months ago the successful results gave the husband and family the best hopes for the restoration of health and strength. However, these hopes were blasted on Wednesday last, 7th inst., when the deceased suddenly took a bad turn which necessitated the summoning Dr. Gibson from Mullumbimby, but no hopes could be entertained for her recovery and the late Mrs. Strong passed peacefully away, during the afternoon, her last expression being:

“When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I rise to worlds unknown
And behold Thee on Thy throne.”

She leaves a sorrowing husband and family and many relatives to mourn her loss. Tweed Daily (Murwillumbah, NSW : 1914 - 1949) Friday 16 April 1920 Page 2

Sarah Sun, a married woman, was arraigned on an indictment charging her that she did, on December l5 last, at Wollongong, feloniously and maliciously murder her female child. Mr. Garland, instructed by Messrs. Slattery and Heydon, on assignment by the Crown, defended the accused. The latter, who is the wife of a Chinaman, was living apart from her husband at Wollongong, and it appeared from a statement she made to a police-constable, that she walked to the sea beach at Wollongong, and gave birth to a female child. She then dug a hole in the sand and buried it. The body of the child was afterwards found buried in the sand on the beach. The medical testimony went to show that the child had breathed. The doctor stated that the woman was of weak intellect, and in pain was an imbecile.

The Crown Prosecutor, after hearing this evidence, withdrew the charge of murder and substituted one of concealment of birth.

The jury found the accused not guilty and she was discharged. The Sydney Morning Herald 19 February 1890

Many district residents were shocked last week at the news of the death of Mrs. Alice Ada Swan, at Kiama Hospital, at the age of 76 years. Mrs. Swan, who was a native of Moss Vale, was a well-known figure in the district and was deeply respected for determined battle against adversity when on the death of her husband early in life, she was left to rear her family of 11 children. An indication of her love of her home and her family was in her joy of her garden.

Last week the Mayor of Jamberoo paid tribute to her when he said- “She was a wonderful mother and an example to her neighbours.”

She had 36 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

She is survived by all her 11 children—Aileen (Mrs. R. A. Duncan, Port Kembla), Ernest (Jamberoo), Maxwell (Dapto), Dudley (Albion Park), Annie (Mrs. W . J. Jolliffe, Fairy Meadow), Stan (Dapto), Jack (Tongarra), Nell (Mrs. T. A. Jolliffe Albion Park), Bert, Ted and Alex (Albion Park). Also three brothers and two sisters—P. J. G. Webb (of Dapto), F. L. Webb (Bellambi), C. H. Webb (Jamberoo), Mrs. H. G. McLean (Glenquarry) and Mrs. Ken Wills (Ashfield).

The funeral was from All Saints', Albion Park, the minister officiating being the Rev. Evans, of Dapto, and burial was at Brownsville. Kiama Independent (NSW : 1947 - 1954) Wednesday 11 March 1953 p 5

When it became known that Mrs E. A. Swan, beloved wife of Councillor Swan, of Robertson, had passed away at Brewongle Private Hospital, Bowral, on the 31st December, genral regret was expressed throughout the Robertson district where she had resided for 21 years. Much sympathy is extended to her bereft husband.

Mrs. Swan was an exceptional woman and, when her health permitness. She was a loving and devoted wife, a kind and generous citizen, and will be sadly missed by all classes. Mrs. Swan took a keen interest in the Robertson A. and H. Society. She was chief stewardess of that society for 13 years and occupied that position at the time of her death. Her garden was on of the beauty spots of Robertson ; and her exhibits of flowers and preserves were a feature of the annual shows.

Mrs. Swan, who was 58 years of age, was a native of Scotland, where her mother, one sister and two brothers survive her.

The deepest sympathy is every- where expressed for Councillor Swan. They were a devoted couple, and his bereavement is a heavy one. The Southern Mail (Bowral, NSW : 1889 - 1954) Tuesday 22 January 1924 p 2

A few days since, Mrs. Hannah Swan died suddenly at Dapto of heart disease. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Saturday 5 June 1869


Mercury reports that an inquest was held at Summer Hill, West Dapto, on the body of Mrs. Hannah Swan, aged fifty-four. It appeared from the evidence of Mr. E. J. Swan, the husband of the deceased, that he had driven her in his spring-cart, on the previous morning, to the house of his son, who lives at Farmborough, and left her there apparently in good health, whilst he attended a sale close by. On his return in the afternoon to fetch her, she proposed to walk on to the top of Mr. Reddall's hill whilst he was getting his horse and cart ready. Their daughter-in-law went with her to the slip-rails, and bade her good-bye, having noticed no systems of illness or disease about-her. When Mr. Swan overtook her he found her sitting by the way-side, and, on his asking what ailed her, she said she was “bad.” He heard her say “cart,” and, believing that she wished to be lifted into it, he told her he was unable to do so.

He sat down beside her; saw her making an attempt to spit, and, noticing that a bubble, discoloured with blood, formed at the mouth, wiped it off with his handkerchief. Finding that she was sinking, he passed his arm round her waist, and had scarcely done so before she died. Dr. Marshall stated it as his opinion that heart disease was the cause of death.

Husband a farmer and boot maker


Mrs. John Sweeney passed away last Thursday at her late residence, Jamberoo, of which place she had been a resident for half a century, and had reached the ripe age of 77 years. Deceased was, much respected. The funeral took place on Saturday, and the members of the local Lodge of Oddfellows (to which Order the deceased's son, Mr. Charles Sweeney, belongs) walked in mourning regalia, out of respect. The mournful, procession, wended its way towards Jamberoo new cemetery, where the deceased's mortal remains were laid in their last resting place, Rev. Father Malone performing the last sad rites. Death is sad at any time, although we expect the aged to go, There world is large, but we all miss our own.

The deceased lady was suffering for a long time, and although death has taken a mother, and. those near and dear to her (who carefully nursed and attended her during her illness) miss her, they wish her not back to suffer now she is at rest, notwithstanding this is the first break by death in the family of five sons and two daughters, who, with the exception of two, were able to follow to the grave the remains of the one who reared them.

Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved husband and family. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Tuesday 6 March 1906 p 2

(By an Old Friend).

A few remarks concerning the passing from amongst us of one of the old residents of the district will not be out of place. I refer to Mr. J. Larkin, who died at his residence at Mount Kembla on the 15th of November. I am sure there are many who will join with me in saying that he was a man who, to know thoroughly well, was a pleasure. Honest spoken, of good sound principles and as became a true son of the Green Isle, he had a ready and witty answer for every- one; and from my personal knowledge of him, extending over a period of sixteen years, I can truthfully say that when able, no one was more willing to give aid and sympathy to any case of grief or distress that came under his notice.

Some time back a long and severe illness prostrated him for months, and he had only just began to got himself round again when that, which all of us sooner or later must face, claimed him. He has left a loving wife and five children, and I may say that through sickness and other causes, they are unprovided for. Now, I would suggest to the members of the Wollongong Christy Minstrels, and others who are able to do so, that benefits be got up for the purpose of helping Mrs. Larkin and her children. It is a worthy object, and from what I have seen of the people of Wollongong. I am sure that success will attend such efforts if made.

It is our sad duty to record the death of Mrs. S. Sweaney, of Robertson, mother of Mr. Alex. Sweaney, late of Mittagong, who passed away at the Cottage Hospital, Bowral, at a quarter past twelve on Friday morning, at the ripe age of 79 years. Deceased who had been ailing since January last, decided to seek medical aid at Bowral, and was driving hither on Monday, when she took suddenly ill in the buggy; she was driven on to Bowral, and Dr. Throsby, who attended her, advised her removal to the hospital, where she passed way yesterday, as before stated. The late Mrs. Sweaney was a widow, having outlived her husband, the late Mr. James Sweaney by some 16 or 17 years. She was a very old resident the Wingecarribbee district, and leaves grown-up family, who we are sure will give sympathy of numerous friends in their sad bereavement. The funeral will move from the hospital to-day at 10 o'clock , for the Church of England Cemetery at Robertson, Bowral Free Press (NSW : 1901 - 1906) Saturday 4 April 1903 p 2

1903 Electoral roll –living at Bombo Kiama Domestic Duties


The death occurred in the Kiama District Hospital on Sunday last after a short illness of Mrs. Caroline Sweet, a very well-known and respected resident of Bombo, at the age of 77 .

Prior to her marriage to the late Mr. Henry Sweet, who predeceased her some 26 years ago, Mrs Sweet was a Miss Woodroffe, a native of Kent, England, and came out to New Zealand at the age of 18 with her father and step-mother. She was married there and

later with her husband and two young children came to New South Wales, and after about ten years spent at Prospect the family made their home at Bombo, where they have resided ever since. Mr. Sweet followed quarrying pursuits, for a time as powderman, and he spent several years in the railway quarry at Bogan Gate. 

Mrs. Sweet will be missed by many friends, for she was ever ready to do a good turn and was a good mother and neighbour. She is survived by four sons and five daughters to whom sincere sympathy is extended in their sad bereavement, Messrs. John, Henry and Bert (Joe) Sweet (Kiama), Mr. William Sweet, (Newcastle), Caroline (Mrs. Starr, Sydney), Ada (Mrs. R. Richardson, Kiama), Emily (Mrs. Smith, Thirroul), Jessie (Mrs Malzard, Mortlake), Olive (Mrs. McLachlan, Mortlake). One son, Frank, predeceased her.      

The funeral took place in the Church of England cemetery, Kiama, on Monday, the Rector (the Rev. J. W. A. Watkinson) officiating. The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal (NSW : 1899 - 1947) Wednesday 10 March 1937 p 2

Quite a shock was given to relatives and many friends when it became known Mrs. Synott, senr., of Rose Hill, had been found dead in a bedroom at Garlick's Hotel, Byron Bay.

Some few days ago the deceased, who had been ailing since the death of her husband, the late Mr. John Synott, nearly two years ago, went to visit her sister, Mrs. O'Keefe, Burringbar and her son, Thomas. The latter resides a few miles from Mullumbimby, and on Tuesday night she came back as far as Byron Bay, and put up at Garlick's Hotel, intending to return home the next morning. About 3 am., a housemaid, going into her room, found the deceased had passed away peacefully in her sleep. The late Mrs. Synott was a member, of the Boyle family, Gerringong, who ranked upon the oldest and most esteemed families of the South Coast. She came with her husband and family over thirty years ago to the Richmond, settling at Rose Hill, Goolmangar, where they have resided ever since, and where her name has ever been a household word for charitable deeds and neighbourly kindness. So her death will be a distinct loss to the community in which she resided. A devout Catholic she was a strict adherent and attendant at her Church. Yet class or creed came not in her thoughts when in the old pioneering days a call, perhaps in the middle of a wet or stormy night came for her assistance and help, which was always given willingly and cheerfully. She reared a family of six sons and five daughters, worthy off-spring of their self-sacrificing parents. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 6 June 1914 p 3
