TRIAL BAY AND SOUTH WEST ROCKS

trial bay

TRIAL BAY WAS built in a later period than what I’m usually looking at. The connection with South West Rocks was earlier for my direct family. I do however have documents and images from Jan Maurice and Sanders’ were out there as Boatsmen and running a boarding house as well as one lad being remembered in the Memorial Pines. Killed in the war. So we took a drive out there on our recent 2 week Loop and took a look through the Boatsmen’s Houses which are carefully maintained and where,as usual, we encountered enthusiastic and helpful volunteers hanging on to our heritage with Tenacity. Below are some links to TRIAL BAY and some images from our exploration.

TRIAL BAY GAOL

Established in 1886, Trial Bay Gaol is the only example of a state prison specifically built to carry out public works. The intention was for prisoners to construct a breakwater in Trial Bay and create a safe harbour between Sydney and Brisbane.

While other elements of the family are travelling far and wide, we took a trip down the Mid North Coast. First stop was the CLARENCE , the huge river of which I have known so little till this year. I don’t know of any family contact in Grafton but it was RICHARD CRAIG (not known to be connected to us) who having escaped Moreton Bay as a young convict ,lived for a time with the Aboriginal People of the Coast and then having found his way to white settlement led the first known party of white folk back over the mountains to the Clarence.  Also one of the Sanders Lads, my Great Uncle,brother of Grandfather John George Sanders, was named CLARENCE MACLEAY SANDERS.

From Grafton we went South to the BELLINGER which IS significant to the Family. BRAITHWAITES are early settlers in this town. Joyce and Bruce Bell spent their honeymoon in Urunga at the Mouth of the Bellinger and the family have lived on Bellinger since the early 1970s and married into local families.

Kati B and IMM live there now as do the BRAITHWAITES – Doreen and Gordon.

We pressed on for lunch to Frederickton, where the SANDERS family and many connections are laid to rest. Lunch, I decided was worth a try at FREDO’s PIES even as Vegetarians. Haven’t seen it for a good few years and it is expanded without losing any flavour at all. Good Seating, delightful service and a range of vego pies which perfectly suited our taste. That on top of all the meat varieties. For dessert – GRAMMAR PIE with REAL CREAM.

CHRISTOPHER GEORGE SAUNDERS

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article846289

The Maitland Mercury… Thursday 12 January 1882, page 4.

Sad Fatal Accident.-We greatly regret to announce the death of a fine boy 9 years old the son of Mr Saunders, of Kinchela Creek, An inquest was held by the Coroner, J. Ducat, Esq, on the body of Christopher George Saunders who whs accidentally shot on Tuesday the 3rd inst, at his father’s residence, Kinchela Creek. The evidence disclosed that an elder brother, a boy of eleven years of age, got possession of a gun that was standing in a bedroom and carried it outside to the rear of some banana trees, he then placed the head of a lucifer match on the nipple, and drew the trigger so as to snap the match with the hammer of the gun. On placing a second match and snapping it off in the same manner, the gun went off the muzzle being pointed directly at the head of a younger brother who was sitting on the ground with his back against a water trough, the back portion, being about one half of the head of deceased, was completely blown away, his brains being scattered all about the ground and trough, pieces ot the bone were driven some distance away, Death was instantaneous The gun was only charged with powder and a large wad of brown paprr, it had been loaded some months and the inside of the barrel was a good deal rusted. The boy had taken the gun without the knowledge of his mother or elder brother. The father is absent from the district ; the verdict of the jury was that the deceased was accidentally shot by his brother.-Macleay Herald

M’Leay River, February 2.-The floods in this district have caused great destruction to the standing crops and also to the maize stored in the barns from last year. The inundation was very rapid, and higher than has ever been Known by the oldest residents, excepting an aged black, who states that ” when a picaniny cabon water all the same.”

Yarra-bandini was completely covered, und for many miles around was one sheet of water, in some places 15 to 20 feet deep, and -a fleet of sailing craft could have sailed on the spot where the horses should have run on the 26th January. Messrs. Chapman, Rudder, Ducat, Scott, and the small settlers lower down, are sufferers by the loss of stock, maize etc.

WILLIAM AND MARY ANN SANDERS arrived in the Colony per VICTORIA on 4-9-1849. Their first child ELIZABETH GRACE was born at Horsely in 1850. Apparently they went to THOMAS SANDERS or his family in this western area of Sydney. They then moved North via the New England and eventually to the MCLEAY RIVER where they made their home. In 1852 HARRIET FRANCES was born at YARRABANDINI as was WILLIAM GEORGE in 1854.  FREDERICK JOHN was born on the MCLEAY RIVER in 1855 and CHARLES HENRY at AUSTRAL EDEN in 1860.

The next three children were born at FLATTORINI ISLAND in 1861,62 and 64. They were ALFRED SIVERT, ERNEST ALBERT and MARY ANN.

The next 5 children were all born in KINCHELA. WALTER,AGNES,EDRED,SARAH and CHRISTOPHER who was accidentally shot by his brother when he was 9 years old and killed.

FLATTORINI ISLAND has my attention today. Looking through the NLA digitised newspapers – I come across the word FATTORINI and am beginning to consider that the Island may well have derived from that name.

I  have a mention of DR FATTORINI. In 1830 he is mentioned as one of the medical men treating the poor of Sydney at the SYDNEY INFORMARY. Other medicos mentioned are DRS BLAND, MITCHELL, FORSTER AND JEANNERET.

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2195705

He is also an Honorary Surgeon with the Benevolent Society. In October 1830, a MR MOWATT was robbed by villains. Amongst the takings by the thieves were bills drawn by DR FATTORINI for considerable sums of money. Two villains were involved in the robbery . One was a short man dressed in a black hat, velveteen jacket and dark trowsers. The other was thin and wore a straw hat. An old straw hat. He had dark skin and ” to the best of Mr Mowatt’s recollection” wore whiskers.  http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2196392

On the 11th April 1831 – one AUGUSTUS ANTONIO was attended By Dr Fattorini and Dr McTiernan at the TALBOT INN BRICKFIELD-HILL. He had succumbed to deliterious fumes from one of the vats which were were a-brewing and despite attempts to resuscitate  , life was declared extinct.

I still have no connection between the Island in the River McLeay where the Sanders children were born and the Good Doctor – but I find him an interesting character.

In August 1832, Dr FATTORINI was coming into Sydney from Liverpool, in company with JOSHUA JOHN MOORE Esq. They were travelling on top of the coach when they saw a crowd of people gathered. There was EDWARD KENNEDY in custody of some constables. Straightaways, Dr F recognised the the greatcoat Kennedy wore as being the Doctor’s very own which had been stolen from his servant. Mr Moore joined in. THAT’S THE MAN THAT ROBBED ME – said he. Mr and Mrs Moore had been vigorously robbed of a good many things only a few days before whilst on the road.

Edward Kennedy, however, had witnesses, two of them, to say that he was with them and intoxicated ( a not uncommon condition of the times apparently). The witnesses did a less than effective job of convincing anyone of their veracity and Mr Kennedy was in deep trouble along with his perjuring mates.

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2208002

In October 1832, the Doctor purchases a farm near the Orphan School At Parramatta. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2208970

The transaction ends up in the SUPREME COURT with disputes over the bills and deposit. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2209304

March 1833 sees DR FATTORINI back in the SUPREME COURT in SYDNEY. The case is FATTORINI vs UNDERWOOD.

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2211052

Mr Underwood had refused to pay the Doctor for 90 visits he had made. The Judge does mention that Dr F does not appear to be a graduate of any Universities and is a mere surgeon. He does in the end win his case to the amount of 150 pounds.

In 1834 , he applied for 2 lots of over 600 acres each at Brisbane Water, Northumberland Shire. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2215174

The land was bounded on the South by Bean’s land , on the North by the section line and on the east by a line to include the quantity. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2215587

Still no indication of his having land as far north as the McLeay.

In March 1834 , 3 horses were impounded from the ESTATE OF DR FATTORINI. If they were not claimed by the 24th , Walter Schutt the Poundkeeper was going to sell them. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2215738

5 JULY 1834 SYDNEY GAZETTE http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2216550

Notwithstanding the late improvements made in the streets of Sydney, there is still great room for further amendment. From the recant rains, parts of Kent and Sussex streets, especially that portion of the former which lies between King and Market streets have become nearly ‘impassable, and several accidents to carriage and foot passengers have been the consequence. Dr. Fattorini a few days since was in great danger of being thrown out of his chaise from this circumstance, while making the tour of his professional visits in that quarter ; we trust therefore that no time will be lost in correcting this evil, of which the inhabitants residing in that neighbourhood loudly complain.

JAMES HAMAGE a servant in Dr F’s employ was brought before the court as a runaway. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2196957 Jan 1835. Sydney Gazette.

In the same month another assigned servant who ran away was apprehended . http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2197017

Thursday 5 February 1835 . DR FATTORINI HAS REMOVED TO NO 75 PITT-STREET.  http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2197251

This left the elegant verandah cottage he had previously occupied, available for rental. It was in Castlereagh=street – at a rental of 86 pounds per annum. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2197406

STILL NO CONNECTION TO THE MCLEAY. WE WILL RETURN TO THE GOOD DOCTOR AT A LATER DATE.

DR FATTORINI’S ASSIGNED SERVANTS ( In brackets after the name is the ship on which the convict arrived . If a number follows it indicates the 1st, 2nd , 3rd etc voyage of that ship to the Colony. )

The first listing is a DR FATTORINI in Sydney in the SYDNEY GAZETTE of July 1832. He had been assigned a labourer GEORGE POTTER (Guildford 8).
DR FATTORINI is also assigned a tinman and brazier by the name of GEORGE COLLINS ( ROYAL GEORGE). DR FATTORINI is still in Sydney in August 1832.  http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2208207
In September 1832, JAMES GORDON (EXMOUTH) was assigned to Dr F as GROOM. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2208724
SAMUEL ASHMAN ( LADY HAREWOOD) was assigned to Dr F as a brickmaker. Dr F is listed as SYDNEY. 1832
SAMUEL PARKER (CAMDEN 2) assigned as bricklayer. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2211546 APRIL 1833

SOME MORE SANDERS STORY FROM JAN AND BARRY MAURICE

1. WILLIAM SANDERS m SARAH STARK c 1768 probably at Tifford outside KENTON near EXETER DEVON.

2. Their son  WILLIAM was baptised on 11/11/1792 at Tifford and was probably born the same day or the day before according to the custom of the time. He later married ELIZABETH GREEN. Their son :

3. WILLIAM was born at KENTON on 15/4/1823. He married MARY ANN SKIVINGS who was born in 1830. Mary’s parents were both born at KILLERTON ( also known as Broad Clyst) near EXETER, Devon.  Her mother, GRACE, was born in 1804. William and Mary  arrived in Sydney on board the VICTORIA on 2/9/1849, Mary possibly pregnant with their first ( surviving ) child.

They settled in the MACLEAY DISTRICT. Oral history has it that William was invited to come to Australia by a retired British Army Colonel to be employed as an expert ploughman having become known as such back in Devon. William is also reputed to have introduced blackberries to the North Coast. This act of folly earned him the nickname ” BLACKBERRY BILL”. William was also a champion rower and rowed in the Kempsey Regatta of 1856. William died on 19/12/1910 aged 87. Mary died on 13/11/1882 aged 52, the mother of 13 children.

OBITUARY : SARAH ELLEN KITCHING

FROM JAN AND BARRY MAURICE

SARAH ELLEN KITCHING.

 

SHORTLY after noon last Saturday Mrs Sarah Ellen Kitching wife of Robert Kitching,collapsed at her home 13 ? Street, Campbelltown and passed away  shortly afterwards.  The late Mrs Kitching who was 74 years of age although only recently having medical treatment was apparently quite well and in good health when her husband left home to do their ordinary Saturday morning shopping and it was while he was away  that the collapse of his wife took place. Before he could get home after receiving word of his wife’s illness she has passed peacefully away.

To those of us who knew the late Mrs Kitching, knew only a woman of very stirling quality one who ever expressed a sweet and charming personality with tender motherly love. We join our readers in expressing to Mr Robert Kitching and his family our deep and sincere sympathy.  The loss to the Kitching family  is a broken link of a glorious chain which can never be rejoined.

The deceased lady was Miss SARAH ELLEN SANDERS before her marriage to her bereaved husband  which took place in Sydney just fifty years ago , the wedding ceremony being performed by the late Rev Bolger who at that time in 1896 was the first Congregational Minister in Campbelltown. In the same year of their union Mr and Mrs Robert Kitching took up residence in N ? where they resided until thirteen years ago when the old couple came to live in Campbelltown.  Of the issue there were ? son and two daughters , (1) Mr Kitching of Auburn, Effie Hunt ( also of Auburn) and ? ? of Campbelltown. As a grandmother Mrs Kitching leaves 13 grandchildren. Mrs Taylor late of Appin and now of Campbelltown is her sister and THE ONLY SURVIVING MEMBER OF THE SANDERS FAMILY.

The internment of the mortal remains were placed to rest in God’s Sacr ?????? adjoining St Peters Church of England  last Monday morning following a short service in the church
