7501 «b»My collection«/b»
Now in his nineties, Melbourne collector Paul Hackforth-Jones has been fascinated by English glass for about 40 years. After bringing up four children he began to collect in earnest in 1977, when he retired from his management position with BP.
"I got a modest pension from my company," he laughs. "That put the jam on the bread and butter."
As he gained more knowledge through Melbourne glass guru Rex Ebbott, he decided to concentrate on 18th-century glass, with an emphasis on drinking vessels. In the early stages some of his collection was snapped up quite cheaply, although prices escalated in the 1980s, when investors moved in.
"Tastes change," he says of his collection's value. "I simply don't know what it's worth these days. What I do know is that I had an awful lot of fun collecting it."
Fortunately, he seems to be having fun selling it as well.

7508 «b»Percival George Collins
«/b»Percival George Collins was born at South Yarra on 24 March 1892. He was the third child of Edward Easter Collins and Emma Collins (nee Clayton). He was an excellent boy tenor and attended St. Paul's Choir School in Melbourne where he excelled in mathematics, taking out the prize for the subject in each year of his attendance at school. After leaving school he studies wool classing and joined his father's wool buying and exporting businesses. He was a very keen sportsman, and excelled at cricket and golf. He was also a very good rifle shot, winning the King's Medal on two occasions. At the outbreak of World War I he was working in his father's wool store at Murrumburrah and he enlisted from there a few days after the outbreak of the war, on 19 August 1914, as Percival George Collins, number 1920 in the 3rd Battalion AIF. He sailed for the Middle East on the "Euripides." Apart from the appallingly cramped conditions on board, the most memorable event on the voyage was witnessing the sinking of the battle ship "Emden" by their escort HMS "Sydney." The flagpole from HMS "Sydney" was procured by Edward E. Collins, who was then Mayor of Wagga Wagga, to become the centerpiece in the planning of the Memorial Gardens where it still stands to this day. While serving in the Middle East on Gallipoli, Percival contracted pneumonia and pleurisy and was shipped back to Australia medically unfit on 2 May 1915. Percival then returned to working in his father's businesses. When the wharf labourer's went on strike, holding up essential supplies to Australian troops, volunteers were called for, and he joined the volunteers from the Riverina area and wharves until the dispute was settled. He then returned to work in his father's wool store in Wagga Wagga, but it was not long before the famous Cooee recruiting drive occurred, and once again, Percival enlisted - this time as George Percival Collins, number 3721 in the 18th Battalion. After a further 257 days service, mainly in Egypt, he was once again discharged medically unfit on 2 September 1916. After the war, all volunteers were issued with an illuminated address by the Council of the area in which they resided at the time of their enlistment, in appreciation if their war service. Percival had the rare distinction of having two of there. Percival is also listed twice on the Memorial Arch in the Victory Memorial Gardens - as PG Collins and GP Collins.

7509 «b»Peter Hall«/b»'«b»s«/b» «i»Architectural career began 1957 in office of NSW Government Architect. He worked with Anderson Forster & Wilcox in London 1958-60. He returned to Australia to design major public and university buildings for GA office, including award-winning Goldstein Hall at University of NSW. Partner in Hall Todd and Littlemore, the firm appointed by the Minister in 1966 to complete the design of the Sydney Opera House following resignation of Joern Utzon. This project was awarded the RAIA 25 Year Design Award in 2006 for design of Concert Hall and Opera Theatre.
Peter established his own private practice from to 1973-92, undertaking a wide range of projects. His best known works include the award-winning Cement Works Berrima, and the urbane and ingenious Forecourt to the Sydney Opera House in association with the NSW Government Architect. He was contracted from 1977-88 as Director of Architecture for the Australian Department of Housing and Construction, reforming management practices and invigorating architectural culture in this role.«/i»
«b»Pragma and Poesy«/b» - «i»Peter Hall was a graduate of Sydney University in both Arts and Architecture, and a student of literature, classics and archeology. He spoke eloquently and wrote concisely. He could be impatient with architectural critics and colleagues who espoused their "philosophy of architecture". He wrote to a friend "...I don't think I have a philosophy of architecture so much as an approach to it...I do not see merit cultivating a style and imposing it...rather the reverse should apply - the problem should influence the way in which the spaces and materials are produce a work which gives the users a good experience."
From this basis of logic and pragmatism his architecture could flower into poetic forms which lift the human spirit. For Hall, PROCESS began with incisive understanding of human needs, and materials of structure. His MIND conceived robust architectural forms translated by HAND into firm diagrams." - Peter Webber«/i»

Fanny Amelia Flook
Fanny was born on 12 July 1845 at St George, Bristol, England. She Came to Australia & Married John Ripley. They Settled in Bathurst, N.S.W, where they had two children, Fanny Alberta & William George.
Fanny Amelia's first husband, John Ripley, was killed in a mining accident. Fanny then married John Whalan (born in Dublin Ireland) on 13 May 1872, at St Stephen's Presbyterian Church, Hope Street, Bathurst. Witness's were Samuel & Martha Baker. Martha was Fanny's sister
At this time Fanny was living at the Lagoons near Bathurst, a small town of approximately 200 people & John was a labourer from Campbell's River, a cattle & sheep property 15miles from Bathurst. There were four children from this marriage:
Minnie Mary Annie 1873 married John James Whelen
Ida Hester 1875 married Fred Gordon
Oscar Albert 1879 married Mary Boyd
Arthur Raymond 1886 married Kathleen McMunn
Fanny & John Parted because of John's excessive drinking. The whereabouts of John is then unknown.
Fanny had worked for two doctors in New South Wales who had interests in the Ukalunda Mine in
Queensland & through them, she obtained work as a bread cook for the miners.
Thus began her life a UKALUNDA, Queensland. Fanny was a trained nurse & was soon to be self appointed nurse & midwife in the district. She was known to all as "Mam". Colin Cameron McPherson & Colin Easton were two of the children delivered by Mam.
Mam Ran her own bake house & store, mainly dealing in gold dust & using gold scales. She always kept large snakes to rid the place of rats. She also kept her own coffin in case she died during the wet season & one could not be obtained.
When Mam's daughter Minnie Died in 1897 leaving three small children (Elsie5, Amy 3, & Norman 1), Mam took over the rearing of those children. Minnie's husband John Whelan owned the Ukalunda Hotel at this time. When he died in 1907, Mam Managed the hotel until her Death.
Mam Died on 10 May 1927 & was buried in the Ukalunda Cemetery, Mam was Known Throughout the district as a very tough, strong willed lady but her kindness was also very evident. The name "Mam" has always been a legend.
A Poem written by Stanley S Hathaway is included in this publication alone with this letter (below) which was published in a Queensland paper.
In The North Queensland Register, J.B. writes:
'I have always read with interest your references to old-timers, carriers, hotels, etc, but I have often wondered how it is that I have never read anything about the old hotel at Ukalunda.
It was truly a home away from home. Founded by a Victorian, the late J.J. Whelan, he saw to it that no man left his place without his tucker bags being full & with a bottle in his pocket.
We miners around could thank this big hearted man from many a good deed.
He married pretty Minnie Whalan & together they ran the Ukalunda Hotel & Butcher Shop, Store & Post Office & no places were ever run better.
After a few years, death claimed them both, but they left three children; two girls & a boy. The hotel was taken over by Mrs Whelan's mother, Mrs Whalan, who conducted it for many years & she was one of God's best.
Her name is always spoken of with affection & she was loved by all who knew her, Never did anyone go hungry if she heard about it. Baskets of cake & all sorts of good things were sent to any miner who had no woman folk at home to do if for him. If she heard of anyone being ill, away she went through the night to their aid-in a motor car? Oh no, on horse back.
The writer can recall on particular night '96 a dark stormy one when a call came for help for a sick woman 35 miles away in the bush. A few minutes after receiving the call & with a few first-aid things & a flask of brandy, this good woman was on her way & she was responsible for many such deeds. Furthermore, many a child was brought into this world by her, & there were no doctors of nurses within miles & miles. Anyone who remembers her will agree that it would not be possible to fine a more generous of better woman than old lady Whalan, loved & respected by all, high class & low class, black or white. They were all the same to her, if she though they wanted any help.

«/b»POLICE - At the Redfern Police Court on Friday before Mr Whittingdale Johnson SM ... Alice Frater, 16, Louisa Solomon, 15, were each fined 20s., in default 7 days in gaol, for riotous conduct in Bullanaming (now Renwick) Street.

What a confusing family, I wonder if Harry Bullenthorpe and Henry Harris is one in the same person? (now confirmed by email from, Tony Smith (2 Apr 2018) that Harris and Bullenthorpe as being the same person) Most of the children that survived had used the name Harris and also Bullenthope at some point. Harry Bullenthorpe seems to of only had the one daughter "Maria Frances Bullenthorpe" 1885-1885 with his wife Fanny Howard, and all these illegitimate children with Margaret/Mary/Alice.
(Christine 29 March 2018)

9 June 1884, Harry Bullenthorpe arrived back in Sydney on board the ship "Prosper" from Torquay, Tasmania. "Hy Bullenthorp, AB (Able Bodied), age 23, British, Crew" (From "Ships in Australian Waters" website).

Torquay is now part of Devonport in Tasmania. As Maria Bullenthorpe was born 19 March 1885, she would have been conceived around mid-June 1884, about a week after Harry arrived.

So looks like Harry is "right in the frame" as Maria's father.

Have also finally worked out a DNA connection for Harry, courtesy of a 4th cousin once removed from my wife Carol. His name is Fred Allnutt, who lives in Canada. Attached is how the DNA was passed down through the generations through both families. This gives DNA evidence that Harry Harris and Hary Bullenthorpe are the same person.

There are additional proofs in the records of his children.

Mary Harris (Margaret Isabella Frater) had nine children according to NSW BDM Records. In each record she calls herself Mary Harris and does not name the father. Going through each child :-

1. Agnes Emily (Dolly) Harris (1887-1943). No record found of her birth or baptism. There was a girl of the same name born in Leichhardt, but with different parents. Where she mentions her father in BDM records he is alway given the last name Harris. When she married in 1908, she described him as "Henry Harris (deceased), occupation Cabman. Agnes certainly existed, as I found her grave in Botany Cemetery. Photo of grave memorial is attached.

2. Harriett Elizabeth Harris (1889-1889). Harry Bullenthorpe has a sister named Harriett Elizabeth. Very sad, but as this baby was found dead in bed beside her mother, there was a Coroner's Inquest.On 5 October 1889, the Morgue Register of Bodies states "Female infant Harriett Elizabeth Phillis Harris alias Bullington. Mother Mary Alice Harris identified her body". The name Bullington is clearly meant to be Bullenthorpe. On 7 October 1889, the Sydney Morning Herald reports "A female child, aged 17 days, was found in bed beside its mother, Mary Harris, at 59 Mary Street, Surrey Hills, yesterday. An inquest will be held this morning."

3. Mary Harris (1890-1890). Poor baby only lived six weeks.

4. Robert Henry Harris (1891-1892). H Bullenthorp is recorded as a witness at the burial on Robert's death certificate. There is a memorial headstone for Robert : "Bertie Harris, born 1 Aug 1891, died 22 May 1892, "Rest Happy Babe". His grave photo is attached as "Grave of Three Children". Also in the grave is his sister Harriett Vera Harris (1902-1907) and their cousin Alice Frater (1894-1895). Alice was the daughter of Phyllis Frater, who was Mary Harris sister. The grave is in Waverley Cemetery.

5. George Harris (1893-1918). George was a naughty boy. He was convicted of stealing in 1904 when he was 11 years old and sent to "Ardill's Home". Admission record says his father was Harry Bullenthorpe. He enlisted for WW1, served at Gallipoli. Was wounded in the head in 1917 in France and survived long enough to return to Australia in 1918, where he died. Must have been buried in an unmarked grave, but as an ANZAC, he now has a new one. See George Harris ANZAC attached. In his Military Records, there are letters from his father signed as Harry Harris requesting information about him. Lest We Forget.

6. William Henry Bullenthorpe Harris (1895-1967). Here we have Bullenthorpe included in his name. Henry (he preferred that name) was also a naughty boy. In 1905 he ran away from home and refused to return. He was arrested by police and Henry requested that he go onto training ship "Sobraon" instead of going back home. On the Entrance Book for the "Sobraon" his father is named by police as Henry Bullenthorpe. He enlisted for WW1 on 30 December 1914 as George Harris, using his older brother's identity. On 2 December 1915, he was wounded at Gallipoli. Later in France, on 7 August 1916, he was captured by Germans near Contalmaison and spent the rest of the war in prison camps in Germany. After his return to Australia, he continued to use his brother's name (probably because his brother George was dead), and later started calling himself Harry Harris. On 8 June 1935, he signed a Statutory Declaration (My Real Name, attached) that his real name was Harry Bullenthorpe, which name he used for the rest of his life. He had two daughters, both of whom married using the surname Bullenthorpe.

7. Irene Phyllis Bullenthorpe Harris (1897-1932). Here we again have Bullenthorpe included in her name. The only one of the children with a baptism record that has been found. She was baptised as Irene Phillis Harris at St Michael's Church, Flinders Street, Surrey Hills. The home address on the baptism record is the same as that on the birth registration. On the baptism record the parents are named as Henry and Alice Harris. Mary Harris is named as Alice on some records. Irene had five children, of which four made it adulthood. All are now deceased, however two of them married and had issue.

8. Robert Thomas Harris (1900-1900). Died the day he was born.

9. Harriett Vera Harris (1902-1907).Only lived less than five years. Buried in same grave as her brother Robert Henry Harris and cousin Alice Frater. Of interest is that the informant for her death is named as Margaret Flany, cousin, of 5 Albert Street, Waverley. Margaret Flany's real name was Margaret Flanagan, born Margaret Shield. Her mother was Jane Frater, sister of Robert Frater, who was Margaret Isabella Frater's father. So they really were cousins. Margaret Shield married Francis Lott Flanagan in 1882 in Sydney. Francis occupation was a monumental mason. Maybe he built the "Grave of Three Children" in Waverley Cemetery.

So there ends the story of Harry Bullenthorpe. What of Fanny Howard. If you have not researched her, please let me know and I will send what I have.

The Bullenthorpe surname still survives in England. They are all descendants of Harry's brother George, who moved to London and has seven children, four of which survived to adulthood. (Email from Tony Smith on May 12, 2018)

240 \endash 1st Tunnelling Company
«/b»Born at Singleton, New South Wales, Edward was a married Builder in Singleton when he enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force for 'service abroad' at Holdsworthy, New South Wales on 19 August 1915 at age 43 years 4 months.
A medical examination recorded he was 5ft 9ins tall, of dark complexion with blue eyes and black-going-grey. The examination found him to be 'fit for active service'.
Edward recorded that he had previous military service of 7 years in the Naval Reserve, 1½ years in South Africa and 4 years with the 1st & 2nd NSW Volunteers
He recorded his wife Mrs. Agnes Porter of Leichardt, New South Wales (Soldiers Settlement, Batlow, NSW) as his Next of Kin and allotted three-fifths of his pay for the support of his wife and children.
Edward signed the Oath to well and truly serve on 25 August 1915 and was appointed to No.4 Company, Mining Corps on 28 October with the rank of Sapper. He was promoted Corporal on 9 February 1916.
At a civic parade in the Domain, Sydney on Saturday February 19, 1916, a large crowd of relations and friends of the departing Miners lined the four sides of the parade ground. Sixty police and 100 Garrison Military Police were on hand to keep the crowds within bounds. The scene was an inspiriting one. On the extreme right flank, facing the saluting base, were companies of the Rifle Club School; next came a detachment of the 4th King's Shropshire Light Infantry, then the bands of the Light Horse, Liverpool Depot, and the Miners' on the left, rank upon rank, the Miners' Battalion.
The Corps boarded HMAT A38 «i»Ulysses «/i»in Sydney, NSW on February 20 and sailed for the European theatre. Arriving in Melbourne, Victoria on February 22 the Miners camped at Broadmeadows for a stay of 7 days while further cargo was loaded.
Another parade was held at the Broadmeadows camp on March 1, the Miners' Corps being inspected by the Governor-General, as Commander-in-Chief of the Commonwealth military forces.
Leaving Melbourne on March 1, «i»Ulysses «/i»arrived at Fremantle, Western Australia on March 7 where a further 53 members were taken on board.
On Wednesday March 8, 1916 the whole force, with their band and equipment, paraded at Fremantle prior to leaving Victoria Quay at 9.30 o'clock.
The ship hit a reef when leaving Fremantle harbour, stripping the plates for 40 feet and, although there was a gap in the outside plate, the inner bilge plates were not punctured. The men on board nicknamed her '«i»Useless«/i»'. The Miners were off-loaded and sent to the Blackboy Hill Camp where further training was conducted.

«b»Title: «/b»Queens South Africa Medal: Private E James, New South Wales Mounted Rifles
Awarded to 326 Private Edward James, 1 NSW Mounted Rifles. James was invalided home to Australia, arriving on 9 September 1900. On 19 August 1915 he enlisted for service in the First World War as 240 Sergeant Edward James Porter. He served with 1 Tunnelling Company AIF and returned to Australia on 23 May 1917.
Clasps: Orange Free State; Driefontein & Cape Colony

The Mining Corps comprised 1303 members at the time they embarked with a Headquarters of 40; No.1 Company \endash 390; No.2 Company \endash 380; No.3 Company \endash 392, and 101 members of the 1st Reinforcements.
Finally departing Fremantle on April 1, «i»Ulysses «/i»voyaged via Suez, Port Said and Alexandria in Egypt. The Captain of the ship was reluctant to take «i»Ulysses «/i»out of the Suez Canal because he felt the weight of the ship made it impossible to manoeuvre in the situation of a submarine attack. The troops were transhipped to HM Transport B.1 «i»Ansonia«/i», then on to Valetta, Malta before disembarking at Marseilles, France on May 5, 1916. As a unit they entrained at Marseilles on May 7 and detrained on May 11 at Hazebrouck.
A 'Mining Corps' did not fit in the British Expeditionary Force, and the Corps was disbanded and three Australian Tunnelling Companies were formed. The Technical Staff of the Corps Headquarters, plus some technically qualified men from the individual companies, was formed into the entirely new Australian Electrical and Mechanical Mining and Boring Company (AEMMBC), better known as the 'Alphabetical Company'.
Edward was transferred to the 1st Australian Tunnelling Company and worked with them on the Hill 60 tunnel system. He was promoted Sergeant on 25 November 1916 to replace 348 Sergeant William Gilbert who had been promoted to Officer rank and transferred to the 5th Divisional Engineer.
On 6 February 1917 Edward was admitted to 17th Casualty Clearing Station at Boulogne with bronchitis and was transferred to England on 13 February per Hospital Ship «i»Jan Breydal «/i»and admitted to Norfolk War Hospital in Norwich on 14 February.
A Medical Board of 2 April classed his condition as 'debility following bronchitis and chronic rheumatism', noting an origin date of 20 January 1917 at Hill 60, Ypres, Flanders. The cause was attributed to the wet and cold of active service, specifically the winter campaigns. The Board found him permanently unfit for active service but fit for home service and assessed his capacity for earning a full livelihood in the general labour market to have been lessened by one half.
Edward was granted 14 days furlough from 4 April, to report to the 2nd Auxiliary Hospital, Southall where he was admitted on 18 April. On 3 May he was marched in to No.2. Com. Depot, Weymouth for repatriation.
Edward returned to Australia on board H.T. «i»Ayrshire«/i», leaving Devonshire on 23 May 1917 and disembarking in Sydney on 19 July. He was discharged in the 2nd Military District as medically unfit on 2 October 1917, entitled to wear the British War Medal (34047), and later, the Victory Medal (33613).

He was regarded as one of the most energetic gardeners on the Settlement, and was each year after he got his land cleared and well under cultivation, a most successful exhibitor at the Batlow Agricultural Show, carrying off prizes against allcomers, one for the finest collections of vegetables.

Mr Porter was a builder by trade, and before going to the war carried out a number of contracts in Northern towns. He was a Freemason. He leaves a sorrowing wife and a young family, one of the children being the first-born in the Settlement.

7522 «b»She was still a small girl when her family moved to "Henriendi". In 1880 she married Alexander Munro COUSINS at Muswellbrook. Alexander Munro COUSINS had been born in 1853, the son of Walter COUSINS and his wife Harriet (nee MUNRO). Walter COUSINS had been born in 1829 at Heytesbury, Wiltshire, England and had married Harriet MUNRO at Bathurst, New South Wales in 1853. Harriet was the daughter of Alexander MUNRO and his wife Sophia (nee LOVELL). Her father, Alexander MUNRO, had been born at Campbelltown in Scotland on 18 July 1814, the son of George MUNRO and Isobel MAIN. He had arrived in New South Wales in 1831 and had purchased land in Singleton and had become an hotel-keeper. In due course he had engaged in a number of pastoral investments in the north-west of the colony and became quite wealthy. He built a fine home at Singleton and named it "Ardersier House", and by the time his grandson married Matilda Sarah he was involved in grape growing and wine-making on a large scale. During the 1880's Matilda and Alexander had four sons: Glencairn, born in 1883 at Patrick's Plains (Singleton); Royston, born 1885 at Patrick's Plains; Alexander, born 1887 at Muswellbrook; and Ardarsier, born 1889 at Singleton. Patrick's Plains was the original name for the Singleton district, so from the birthplaces of their children we can gather that Matilda and her husband resided in the Hunter Valley until at least the year 1890. The youngest of their four sons was named after his great-grandfather's home Singleton.«/b» EATHER Matilda Sarah (I3940)

«b»Elizabeth Rodger Frater 1887 - 1934. by Elizabeth Glass nee Maclean (Grand-daughter)«/b»
Elizabeth was born on the 17th June 1887 in Carlisle Cumbria to parents John and Mary Frater. Soon afterwards the family moved to Glasgow. They lived in Hospital Street in the Hutchesontown area of the city which was one of the poorer areas. Elizabeth went to school in Glasgow and after leaving school became a mental health nurse.
She became pregnant in 1911 and gave birth to a daughter,also called Elizabeth, on the 10th June 1912 in Glasgow Royal Maternity Hospital in Rottenrow, Glasgow.It was never known who the father was. By this time the Frater family were living at 121 Minard Rd in Crossmyloof near Shawlands, Glasgow. This was in a much more salubrious area than their previous house. However Elizabeth's address on her illegitimate daughter's birth certificate was 308 Renfrew St in Glasgow so it would appear that her parents thought it wiser for appearances sake that she moved away during her confinement (this is just an assumption on my part). The baby was then taken to a family called Hinshelwood and looked after by them from then on and eventually adopted by them about 1927 or 1929 whenever adoption became legal.
Soon after her daughter's birth, Elizabeth(Bessie) left home telling the family she was emigrating to Australia and this was what was believed as it would appear that she never communicated with her parents or her brother, her 4 sisters or in fact her daughter from then on and nothing else was known about her until new shipping lists were issued in February 2008 listing all those people who sailed from a UK port to destinations outside Europe between 1909 and 1940. Her name appeared on one of them as Miss B.R.Frater sailing out of London on 16th April 1914 bound for Wellington, New Zealand on the Rotorua.
After arriving in New Zealand, she added Victoria to her name and was now officially Elizabeth Victoria Rodger Frater. She married James Thorpe of Hawkes Bay, who was employed in the Public Works Dept and was a veteran of the Boer War in South Africa. James died of influenza in December 1918.
Bessie then married Alfred Edward Shepherd, a baker, in 1919.
In 1928 she was operated on for carcinoma of the colon. The cancer was removed but unfortunately secondaries returned in her liver 6 years later. She was operated on on the 2nd November 1934 in Mount Pleasant Hospital in Aukland but sadly died 2 days later on the 4th November. She was buried in Wellsford Cemetery on 6th November.
Alfred remarried Evyleen Frances Shepherd and died on the 9th October 1958.
Bessie had no further children after arriving in New Zealand.

A FATAL OCCURRENCE took place in the ranges, «b»near Dr. Baynton's station, about 20 miles from Kyneton«/b», on Sunday last. John Garrett, a caretaker, in the employment of Messrs. Jarrett, butchers, Kyneton, left his hut, at Jarrett's accommodation paddock, about half past 2 o'clock in the afternoon on that day, in company with a Mr. Frost, to find out a horse which he intended to purchase from Frost. Both men were on horseback, and having found the animal they went in search of, they were driving it on their return home, when Frost had occasion to dismount, in order to fasten one of his stirrup leathers. Meanwhile Garrett rode on out of sight, and Frost following soon after could find no trace of Garrett. After "cooeying," and searching about for some time, he rode on to Garrett's hut and found he had not returned. Next day a search was made, «b»Dr. Baynton's son«/b» and Frost having ridden about through the bush the whole day without finding out the missing man. The search was renewed on Tuesday and yesterday, when at length the body of the unfortunate Garrett was found by young «b»Mr. Baynton«/b» and Mr. Frost, within half a mile of where he had parted from Frost on Sunday. It appeared as if he had been dragged along the ground by his foot fastened in the stirrup after he had been thrown from his horse. Several bruises and marks were found on the body of the deceased. Intelligence of the matter reached Detective Tuckwell, who gave the necessary information to the police, and they were about to go in search of the missing man, when the news reached that the body had been discovered. It was conveyed to the Lancefield Hotel, where Dr. Geary, the district coroner, will this day hold an inquest. No suspicion of violence attaches to any person, and the deceased was known to be somewhat of a reckless rider. The horse or saddle have not yet been recovered. We learn that poor Garrett has left a wife and five or six children to deplore his untimely loss.- Kyneton Observer, November 22.

7542 «b»The Quirindi Gazette, April 15, 1913 - The Late Mr David Lawrence. «/b»As stated briefly in our last issue the remains of the late Mr David Lawrence were brought up to Quirindi for interment, and the funeral which took place Sunday afternoon, was very largely attended. From what we can gather, Mr Lawrence was taken ill while in Sydney, and his medical adviser diagnosing his case as appendicitis, was taken to a private hospital, and as his condition caused alarm his people were sent for, and the end that was feared came Friday. Fortunately his brother, Mr J.E. Lawrence, was with him at the time of his death, and was able to make all arrangments. The deceased gentleman, who had reached the age of 63, but whose activity, would have done credit to one of far less years, was a well-known figure in our town and district, being one of its older residents. For some time he ran a four mill in Quirindi, and subsequently went into the saw-milling business at Spring Ridge, where he resided for many years. Subseqently he came to reside at Quirindi, and of late had taken a little of that rest which should be the lot of those who have fought the strenuous battle of life. He was a firm adherent of the Methodist Church, of which he was a staunch supporter, and he also took a deep interest in politics, being a conviced Liberal, with a militant interest in the success of this cause. In private he was a sterling, warm hearted citizen, with a cheery smile and happy word for all, and our town will be a loser by his death. His remains were laid to rest in the Quirindi cemetery on Sunday, people coming from all parts of the district to pay the last tribute of respect to an old friend. He leaves a wife and considerable family, and we pray that God, in His Infinite mercy will lighten the burden of sorrow which has come over their home. When the remains were brought to the church the seats were filled and the hymm "Rock of Ages" was sung, and the Rev. H.L. Redmond delivered a sympathetic and consoling address. At the conclusion the handsome cedar casket crowned with plural wreaths was carried down the aisle, and Mrs S.E Woods played the solemn "Dead March is Saul" LAWRENCE David (I2352)
7543 «b»The Quirindi Gazette, April 23, 1901 In Memoriam, David Lawrence. «/b»Died April 21, 1901, age 23 years. Early on Sunday last, after a long period of illness, young David Lawrence yielded his brave spirit into the hands of his maker. In life's green spring he seized by the terrible ,alady which gradually stole away his strenth, and left him derelict to await the final summons to etenity. We noted the hetic flush upon his cheeks long since, and saw the sweet flower of his budding manhood fade and wither like a tender plant touched by a frost of winter. Poor Dave lived a short time only, but he lived long enough to gain the love, the great esteem, and the true sympathy of all who knew him. In this selfish life world there are too few of this dear lad's stamp - a gem of honesty and courage - so that the news of his passing, although long expected, caused most people to feel an irresidtable pang of sincere regret. In a recent issue of the Gazette he sent a message of gratitude to the doctor and the people of the district who did their best to alleviate the pain and care of his closing hours, and the noble action of the gentlemen who conceived and carried out so laudable an object must ever remain one of the brightest spots in their lives. For a long time the lad had looked into the face of the Grim Reaper without fear, because he had so lived his days that "when the summons came to join the innumerable caravans that move to the pale realms of shade, where each shall take his chamber in silent jalls of death, not like the quarry slave at night scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, and lies down to pleasent dreams". In the long retrospect of his forlorn hope he had seen the sun rise and set, every day bringing him nearer and nearer to the moment when his tired eyes would close for ever upon the brighness and beauty of existence, to reopen again in the better land where pain and sorrow would have no place. Our hearts ho out in sympathy to those to whom he was most endeared, but we think it would be almost sinful to wish to see his pain further prolonged, when he was ready to render up to the merciful God the life that he gave. It is an odd and true saying 'those whom the gods love die young' theirfore, with revenerent thoughts we leave you to the memory of all who loved you - et dormiunt in sumno pacis - and rest in the sleep of peace. The remains of the late David Lawrence were followed to the grave by a large number of friends, and interred in the Wesleyan cemetery, where the Rev. E.E. Skuse read the burial service. LAWRENCE David Ewart (I13492)
