  • Notes 
    • Piecing together information from the following news articles found:
      A boy named James Goodwillie, about 10 years of age, appeared in answer to a charge of stealing 1s from a little girl named Ellen Hinds. The father of the boy appeared and said that he had no control over his son, and would like to have him sent to the Vernon. He was earning £3 a week, but could not afford to pay anything towards the child's support, owing to sickness in the family. The boy's mother was dead, but he had a stepmother. Article from The Sydney Herald - 19 Sept 1889 (Trove Digitised Newspapers website)
      Mr C Delohery, DSM , presided at the Central Police Court yesterday James Goodwillie, 12, was ordered to be sent on board the Vernon, for being found wandering about in company with reputed thieves. Article from The Sydney Herald - 26 Oct 1889 (Trove Digitised Newspapers website)
      The above information agrees with the entry book to "The Vernon" from this site - this was an Industrial School ship moored in Sydney Harbour.
      From reading the pages of his entry it also shows that his elder sister Helen referred to as Ellen is in the Industrial School for girls at Parramatta.
      Interestingly it is strange that James' natural Mother is said to be dead, but this is known not to be the truth, as Catherine is now living with John McKillop Davies (whether they have married is unsure as no Marriage entry has been found). Also the entry shows the name of James' Stepmother as Elizabeth (again whether David & Elizabeth were married is uncertain as no Marriage entry found for them either). (Notes: Lynn Skelton added 16 Jan 2012 )

      The «i»Vernon«/i» opened in 1867. It was used as an Industrial School and a Reformatory as there was no separate boys' reformatory schools until 1895. The ship held boys until they turned seven. The «i»Vernon«/i» was docked at Cockatoo Island.
      The «i»Sobraon«/i», which replaced the «i»Vernon«/i» in 1892, was used until 1911, when the remaining boys were set to the Mittagong Farm Home for Boys and the Brush Farm Home for Boys.

      James has just seemed to disappered after the divorce from Mary... Not sure where he is?? [4]
