The death of Mrs D.C.Sutton after an illness of nearly 12 months duration . The deceased had resided with her husband in Bulahdelah up to a few weeks ago. When she moved there for better medical treatment she had been suffering from an internal complaint and no satisfactory diagnosis of her case made the task of trying to restore her to health all the more difficult, but it is doubtful if a permanent cure could have been affected. Her demise is regretted by a large number of friends and relatives and sympathy is freely expresed for the husband and family of 6 children the yongest of whom is small.

119 (Research):?b?CHARGE OF MALICIOUSLY WOUNDING SYDNEY?/b?, Wednesday
At the Central Court to-day, William Francis Surridge (42), and Barbara Phyllis Surridge (35), were re manded until May 13 on a charge of having, on May 4, maliciously wounded Ernest Hoffman, who was found on a vacant allotment in Surry Hills on Monday night.

Singleton Argus, Wednesday 6 May 1942


At Central Criminal Court, Sydney, on Saturday afternoon, Barbara Phyllis Surridge, 35, her husband, William Francis Surridge, 41, labourer, and James Harris, 32, sheetmetal worker were found guilty of the murder of Ernest Hoffmann, 56, chef at the Royal Sydney Golf Club. They were sentenced to death by Mr Justice Davidson. Hoffman was found on May 4 and died on May 20. It was alleged he had been assaulted in a house in Langley Street, Darlinghurst, and carried outside and dumped in an allotment. Before sentence was passed, Barbara Surridge declared her innocence. William Surridge said he had been framed. Not one of the accused flinched when the jury, after retiring for two hours, pronounced them guilty. James Harris, one of the condemned, standing erect in the dock, faced police witnesses and said passionately: "You are lying. May God strike you dead."

Singleton Argus, Monday 13 July 1942


?/b?The State Cabinet on Monday commuted to penal servitude for life the sentence of death passed on Barbara Phyliss Surridge, William Francis Surridge, and James Harris for the murder in East Sydney on May 4 of a Swiss named Ernest Hofman, who was employed as a chef at the Royal Sydney Golf Club.

?b?Murderess Offered Trip To England?/b?

Sydney'97Mrs. Eric Parsons (Tilly Divine ) has offered to shout a murderess a trip to England if the Attorney-General (Mr. Martin) will release her on parole.

The murderess is Mrs. Barbara Phyllis Surridge, 45, a friend of Tilly Devine, who has served 10 years of a life sentence.

With her husband, William Francis Surridge, she was sentenced to death in July, 1942, for the murder at Surry Hills of a 56-year-old Royal Sydney Golf Club chef. Sentence was later commuted to life.

Tilly Devine, through her solicitor Mr. Harold Munro has petitioned the Attorney-General for Mrs. Surridge's release. She has told the Attorney-General that she and her husband have booked passages to England in January next year. If Mrs. Surridge is paroled Parsons will forfeit his passage so that Mrs. Surridge can travel with Mrs. Parsons.

FRATER, Alexander (I7707)

Reuben Charlton, in a guestbook message in late Jul. 2011, refers to George Frater & his partners having built ships at Ayres Quay. The firm was in business, apparently, for about a decade, from 1830 to 1841 when the firm went bankrupt. Reuben indicates that George Frater was his great great grandfather & that the James W. Corder Manuscripts contain detail about a number of the ships that the firm built.

'George Frater & Co.' would seem to have built about 7,200 tons of ship construction, which would then have comprised roughly 20 ships.

Reuben has now kindly provided extracts of the 'George Frater and Co. - Ayres Quay' pages of the Corder Manuscripts. The extracts list 17 vessels 'from the Custom House Records' & there may well be additional vessels not 'Corder' listed. Reuben has also provided additional biographical data & data about the bankruptcy of 'George Frater & Co', on April 7, 1841. From such data & from other sources, the following would seem to summarize what the webmaster understands to be the history:-

In 1824, George Frater, with I am advised 7 partners, were building ships at Ayres Quay. George was likely a junior partner since the firm would seem to have been known as 'Kirkbride, Carruthers'. His partners would have included Kirkbride, Ralph Todd, John Marrington & presumably also Carruthers. In 1830, that 1924 partnership came to an end, & three of the partners continued to build ships at Ayres Quay, namely George Frater, Ralph Todd, & John Marrington, in business, it would appear, as 'George Frater and Co.' In 1838 Ralph Todd left the partnership. The remaining partners, i.e. George Frater & John Marrington, carried on the business. There was a slump, Reuben advises, in 1840 & on Apl. 7, 1841 'Frater and Company' went bankrupt. As you can read here.

Reuben adds that George Frater married Christiana Todd, a daughter of Ralph Todd. The Ralph Todd in the partnership may accordingly have been Frater's father-in-law or brother-in-law. John Marrington, it would seem, was born in 1792, & was initially a keelman. He married Elizabeth Donnison & in the Sunderland Holy Trinity parish registers in 1844, at the time of the baptism of a son, he is stated to be a river pilot. His new career, it would seem, after the 1841 bankruptcy. In the 1851 census he was stated to be a Trinity House pensioner, at age 59.

The ships built by George Frater & Co.? Note that re a few of the ships, I have amended the Corder data (sorry Mr. Corder!) based upon the data contained in two available editions of Lloyd's Register (ex Google Books) - those re 1836/37 & 1842/43. Such registers seem most likely to be accurate data sources.

Vessels by year of first registry:- 1831, Eleanor, 1832 Manico, 1833 Comet, 1834 George Marsden, Vigilant, 1835 Duchess of Kent, Prince George, Princess Victoria, 1836 Leadbitter, Sarah Nicholsen, 1838 England, Rainbow, 1839 Lady Williamson, Messenger, 1840 Eleanor, Minstrel

I have not included Dodine, stated by Corder to have been built in 1839, since I can at present not find the vessel listed in Lloyd's Register.

Hopefully we can soon list in detail re more of the above vessels, with such data as is WWW available.

144 (Research):In one community at least in this state can it be said that the faithful performance of public duty is appreciated and rewarded. John Taylor Frater, of Brainerd, is serving his fourth term as county treasurer of Crow Wing County. Mr. Frater is of Scotch descent on both sides of the family line. His grandfather, George Frater, was born in Roxburghshire Scotland, and came to America in 1818, locating in Wood County, Virginia. Subsequently he removed to Harrison County, Ohio. His business was that of farming and stock raising. He was an ardent anti-slavery advocate, and active in what was known as the underground railroad service. No fugitive slave ever applied at his "station" without receiving shelter and assistance to the next place of safety. John Taylor, grandfather of the subject of this sketch on the other side of the family line, was also a native of Roxburghshire, Scotland, and came to America in 1819, settling in Livingston County, New York, but subsequently removed to Wood County, Virginia. Mr. Frater holds the good name of his ancestors in high respect, and takes just pride in their sturdy character and homely virtues. John Taylor Frater was born April 19, 1848, on a farm near Uniontown, Belmont County, Ohio. His early educational advantages were very meagre, consisting of a country school, and much of the time only three months in the year. The year 1869 he spent in the preparatory course in the Ohio Central College at Iberia, Ohio, but left there just when he got fairly started because of lack of means. Subsequently he took a course in bookkeeping in Duff's Commercial College at Pittsburgh. He first taught school in the winter of 1870 and 1871, by which he earned the first money he ever possessed as a result of his own efforts, and by this means accumulated about $400, which he spent on his education. In 1875 he went into a grocery business in Iberia, and continued it with moderate success for about five years. In 1881 Mr. Frater came to Minnesota, arriving in December, and locating at Brainerd, where he has been a resident since that time. He came West believing that there was better opportunity for young men here than in his native state. His first business connections were with the Northern Pacific Railroad Company as clerk for the chief road-master, and he was employed by the company until November 1, 1883, at which time to force of employees was greatly reduced. He then secured a situation as a bookkeeper and held it for five years, until June 1, 1889, when he was elected to the office of county treasurer, which position he has held continuously, having been elected four times, the last three elections without opposition. It is needless to say that Mr. Frater is a Republican, and is an active worker for his party's success. He has been honored by his fellow Republicans with numerous elections to important local and state conventions. Mr. Frater is president of the Republican League Club, has recently been elected chairman of the Republican county committee, is a member of the Masonic fraternity and the Knights of Pythias. He is not a member, but is an attendant and supporter of the Congregational church. Mr. Frater was married October 14, 1874, to Miss Julia A. V. Myers of Iberia Ohio.
