10 bert grandpa maude & grandma


Annette Bevan: Hi everyone and happy new year – we went to Kempsey museum yesterday. They have a lot of information and photos which quite a few were unnamed. We went to kinchela and South West Rocks. A very nice part of the coast. When Blackberry died in 1910 there were 174 decendants, how many would there be now 102 years later?

Cathy Gainge: Before Dick Sanders (son of Clarence Macleay, son of Frederick John, son of William) died, he compiled masses of info about the Sanders. He said that he had found over 3,000 descendents. Dick died about 1998.

‎1. Boatman Cottages at SWR
2. Trial Bay Goal at SWR. William Sanders used to deliver meat and bread out there. He took his daughter Stella out there, she met Dudley Dunshea and the rest is more family history.
3. The steps at Grassy Head, built by William as a lookout for the pilot.
That’s a start !!

  • Cathy Gainge: Turn right at Kinchela onto the Hat Head road and just ahead you will see the Kinchela Public School built on land donated by William Sanders.

    27 December 2011 Janice Maurice: In Hat head Road you will see the blackberry bushes growing on the side of the road.

  • Trisha Griffin: But don’t mention your relationship !! Farmers hate blackberries!
  • Trisha Griffin: Oh – and Alexander Macleay’s memorial stone in Memorial Ave and name on War Memorial – both at SWR.

    Cathy Gainge: Not to forget the cemetery at Frederickton. If you get there, the Sanders family gravestones are in the smaller cemetery – on the left hand side about half way down as you go in.


  1. I’m not one of the Sanders line but am descended from Elizabeth Hannah Ready(gt gr mother).She married John James (Thomas) Smith in 1878. Having trouble finding details on his parents Julia Eaton and William Smith.A William Smith died at Macleay R (1875) but BDM gives wrong details for it to be my William unless he had another “wife’there. Any clues? I know the name is a very big problem.

  2. I am trying to find out more information on Kenneth Sanders who went to world war 1 and married Arlie Greer in 1940 Newtown, Sidney. He later had a child Rose to an Aboriginal lady and was killed in 1963 in a Queensland Rail accident. Could anyone give me any information on this family so that I can pass it onto Rose who now lives in Springsure, Queensland.

  3. I am Muralidharan from India . It’s fine you are working hard to find your ancestry. I can give some good link if I believe you are not racist to prejudice my clues. In India it is caste name of father which comes behind our name .It is three thousand and more year old practice and still alive we have a system , we have a common temple for our family line where whole family meet at temple one day. I belong to family line called sandror which records back thousand’s of years and I my selves perceive a link
