Blackburn Revision Court

The court for the revision of the voters lists for the borough of Blackburn was opened on Monday last, at the Town Hall, Blackburn. Mr. G. Segar, the Revising Barrister, taking his seat about ten o'clock. Mr Holt represented the Conservatives, and Mr Norris the Liberals.
Conservative Objection
Mr Holt objected to the vote of Arthur Halstead, bolt maker, of 76 Darwen Street. It appeared that Mr Halstead desired his wife to carry on a business, and so he allowed her to take the house in her name. Mr Holt contended that in thesecircumstancess, the applicant was not entitled to vote - The revising barrister upheld this,and refused to allow a vote.

Notes
General:
My special thanks go to Patricia Wright of USA/Canada for remembering my question from November 2016, asking her if she had a male relative in Australia in 1912. Also thanks to Patricia's father, for sharing a story some 14 months later , about his Uncle who came to Australia about the time of WW1. If Patricia had not given me her great uncles name, I would almost certainly have been so easily able to find out who Harold was. DNA is amazing, but it can't replace the spoken word for making connections. It is great to find our new cousins that we did not know about. Coral Jones Jan 2018

Harold left England in May 1910 to travel to Australia on the Ship the Suevic.

It is uncertain where Harold disembarked when he arrived in Australia, but it is thought he may have landed in Melbourne.
from the Victorian Public Record Office website: - Unassisted passenger lists (1852-1923) Record Series Number (VPRS): 947 Age: 20 date: 03 JUN 4 port: B ship: SUEVIC year: 1910 HALSTEAD, HAROLD MR.

On 21 August 1914, Harold enlisted in the army to serve in WW1. His service number was 191. He was 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed 9lbs 7, I presume this actually means 9 stone 7ozs. His chest was 34 inches and his complexion was fair with brown hair and brown eyes and his religion was given as C of E. He was wounded in the shoulder whilst fighting at the Dardanelle's at Gallipoli on 8th May 1915. He returned to Australia in mid 1916 and was discharged due to illness . In 1922 he collected his Victory medal at Manangatang, but he also collected another medal in 1922 from Victoria Barracks in Carlton.

Harold appears to have worked at the Lux Foundry in Brunswick for about 3 years prior to his enlistment, and was re-employed by the foundry after his discharge in 1916. The factory was shut down due to a strike and Harold was forced to find employment elsewhere. He worked at the Naval Store for a short time, and then worked as a labourer for the Brunswick Council for a short time before he moved to Kulwin late in 1920. Harold applied for an Indulgence Passage to return to England in 1916, but this was refused by the State War Council per a letter dated 10 November 1916.

Harold was granted a Soldier settlers block about 1920. The land was described as allotment 23, Winnambool, Kulwin. Kulwin is a locality in Victoria, Australia, located approximately 36 km to the east of Ouyen, Victoria. Kulwin Post Office opened on 16 August 1920 when the railway arrived and closed on 19 November 1974. His postal address was Manangatang. Harold forfeited the land at Kulwin in August 1925.

In April 1937,Harold was living at 9 Argyle Street, St. Kilda but a letter addressed to him dated 2 March 1937 gives his address as 66 Wilson Street, Burnie. He appears to have lived at various addresses in Tasmania, including Burnie and Latrobe from 1932-1936 approx. I have found Harold and Bridget in the 1936 and 1937 Electoral Rolls living at the Central Hotel in Burnie. Harold's occupation is given Manager. It seems Bridget and Harold separated between 1937 and 1943 as they are listed at different addresses in the 1943 Electoral Rolls. Bridget living in Traralgon, Victoria and Harold in Newcastle, New South Wales. I have now discovered that Harold and Bridget divorced in 1942.

Harold enlisted in Newcastle New South Wales, in the Army Citizen Military Forces during World War 2. His service number was N467395. He was discharged on the 20th March 1945.

The Bertram's referred to in the funeral notice appear to be Felix Hendry Bertam and Vera May Bertram of 100 Lawson Street, Hamilton in the 1943 electoral roll. Harold's address is given as 100 Lawson Street, Hamilton in the 1943 electoral roll and his occupation is given as sales manager.

Notice To Quit:
At the police court yesterday morning three residents were dealt with for having failed to quit premises when requested by legal notice to do so. A. M. Young proceeded against Joseph Fisher in reference to a house occupied by him at Wivenhoe. Mr. T. M. Crisp . (Messrs. Crisp and Edwards), who appeared for the complainant, said that he had arranged with Fisher to give up possession of the house within a fortnight. He asked that an order be made accordingly, and that the bench remit the costs, as defendant was not in regular employment. The order was made. Albert Cruse pleaded guilty to a charge of having failed to quit a house occupied by him and owned by John Hancox at Upper Burnie. Mr. Crisp appeared for the complainant, and made a similar application to that in the previous case. The defendant was ordered to give up the promises by July 31. Court costs were remitted. There was no appearance of Walter Bowden, who was charged in respect of premises occupied by him at Wivenhoe and owned by George Hull. The case was heard ex parte.

Harold Halstead told the court that he was the Burnie representative of J. F. Brady and Co., agents for Mr. Hull. Defendant had taken possession of the property in May last without the consent of the owner or his agents, and although he had been served with two quit notices had refused to leave the house. Bowden was ordered to quit the premises by July 31. Costs in this case were also remitted.

The sequel to a collision at the junction of Jones and William streets on November 23 took place in the Police Court yesterday morning, when Harold Halstead was charged with having on that day driven a car negligently in Jones-street, and Gordon Douglas Terry was charged with having failed to give way with his milk cart to a vehicle on his right at the junction, also with having driven a milk cart so constructed as to prevent the driver from having a sufficient view of the traffic on either side. Mr. T. H. Crisp appeared for Halstead and Mr. Leslie Hudson represented Terry. Mr. Hudson stated that civil action was pending in connection with the incident, and he therefore asked that the case be adjourned.

Notes
General:
Lena was an attractive and vivacious outgoing character who took up dancing in the theatre. She was working in the Windmill Theatre in Blackpool when she had a relationship with the Manager, Sid Brandon. Sid was already married with children and much older than Lena. Lena became pregnant to Sid Brandon. Sidney Josolyne, an upcoming magician and illusionist married Lena a month prior to the birth of her child. Sidney Josolyne had already had a child named Lionel with a married woman. Lionel's mother's name was Ouida. Ouida had TB and was in a sanitorium.

Ouida died within an year of Lena and Sid's marriage and Lena took charge of the 2.5 year old Lionel, son of Sidney Josolyne and Ouida, and her own baby Dora Desiree, who was about 6 months old at the time. Sidney was developing a new clairvoyant act and Lena, billed as La Celeste, would perform in the evenings. Lena's skills were applauded and they toured the country performing their popular act.

Sidney had grown up in a strict Victorian household where children were seen and not heard. He expected attention and demanded perfection at home and on stage.

When Sidney's son Lionel was 7, and Lena's child Dora was 6 years old, Lena fell pregnant again. Lionel was quite difficult and about this time he was taken out of school and sent by train to live with foster parents.

Beryl Francis was born during the Edinburgh Festival on March 11, 1926 at 3am. Lena was apparently still performing despite her advanced pregnancy. Beryl was a sensitive little girl who was frequently cared for by her older sister and by her father.

After Beryl was born she remembers playing close to the sands at Blackpool, and being sent to stay with her Auntie Dora, Lena's sister. Lena was not able to show the perfection in her performances that Sidney demanded and gradually began to seek solace in alcohol.

In 1931, Sidney had been working away and returned home to find Lena in bed with another man, Harry Birkby Dunster. Sidney made Lena pack her bags and sent her away with Dora. Beryl was only 5 years old at the time.

Sidney divorced Lena and married another young woman who became the new La Celeste.

Lena married Harry Dunster and they ran a boarding house. Lena stayed in contact with her daughter Dora, but did not see Beryl for many years.

Beryl became a nurse and she had a row with her father and left home and lived with her sister Dora. Harry Dunster had become ill and was a patient in hospital. Beryl went to relieve another nurse and Harry and Beryl had a conversation in which Harry apologised to Beryl for taking her mother away from her. Harry died soon after from cirrhosis of the liver.

Lena went on to marry Ernie Whisker who was a boarder in her boarding house. Dora Desiree convinced Beryl to attend the wedding, this broke the ice and Beryl and Lena were reconciled after many years. Beryl had finished her nursing training by this stage and went to stay with her mother and helped out at the boarding house.

When Beryl married Frank Bartlett, Lena and Ernie Whisker attended the wedding but Sidney Josoyne did not. 4044
