                7. Frances Mary Ann MORGAN [1288] (1862-1932)

Notes
General:
Richard and Ann were married at Bethnal Green, the witnesses to the marriage were Thomas Swindon and Elizabeth Swindon.

At the 1851 Census, Richard & Ann lived at 7 Mount Street, Bethnal Green and Richard's occupation was given as Carver. On the birth certificate of Elizabeth Ann, Richard's occupation was given as cabinet carver master.

Richard, Ann and 5 children left South Southampton on 17 February 1858 on board the "Parsee" and arrived in Melbourne on 14 May 1858. They went to Emerald Hill (now known as South Melbourne) on their own assistance on 19 May 1858.

Very little is known of Richard and his older children. Following the death of his wife it is thought that Richard may have kept his 2 older children, whilst the younger children were placed in an orphanage, however this is not certain. When Richard married his occupation was given as carver, and that was also the occupation recorded in the shipping records when he and his family came to Australia. I have now found a Richard Morgan, whose occupation was recorded as wood carver, living in Australia Street, Newtown in Sydney in 1880 (Sydney and New South Wales, Sands Street Index, 1861-1930).

From handwritten notes of Theadora Morgan Dawes comes the following information:- Information I have is that, after the mother died, the three younger first were put in a home and the father went to Sydney, taking Jack, and, persumably Jane, with him. When old enough the three girls were put out to service and, I understand never heard from the others again.

Richard W Morgan died at the Macquarie Street Asylum. First listed as a Government Institution in June 1884 , the Macquarie Street Asylum, Parramatta was formerly known as The Erysipelas Hospital, and "gradually merged into an Asylum for the Infirm and Destitute". The premises had originally been built as stables and barracks for convicts, before being converted into a Military Hospital in 1843. After the Military Hospital closed in 1851, the premises were utilised by The Erysipelas Hospital.

Although functioning primarily as an asylum for infirm and destitute men from 1884, wards for infectious conditions were still maintained and used for cases refused admission to Sydney Hospital, the Macquarie Street Asylum reputed to be "one Hospital whose doors are open to cases of all kinds of disease." The Government Asylums generally included medical wards, and Macquarie Street became the centre for treatment of serious eye conditions, with 342 ophthalmic cases treated at Macquarie Street in 1893. After administrative responsibility for Government Asylums transferred from the Department of Charitable Institutions to Public Health in 1913, Macquarie Street Asylum became known as the State Hospital and Asylum for the Blind and Men of Defective Sight and Senility, Macquarie Street, Parramatta.

Richard W Morgan died of throat cancer and his death certificate shows parents names unknown, occupation unknown and details of marriage also unknown but it is thought that this is the correct Richard as all other Richard Morgan deaths have been ruled out at this stage. His age was given as 60 years on the death certificate, although he would have been 62 at the time of his death. He was buried at the Rookwood Cemetery.

The Sydney Daily Telegraph (NSW : 1879 -1883) Thu 5 May 1881 Page 3 FIRE IN CASTLEREAGH-STREET.
Shortly before 6 o'clock yesterday evening a fire broke out on the premises of Mr. E. G. Grace, upholsterer and French polisher, No. 222 Castlereagh-street, opposite the Gaiety Theatre. The fire,
which evidently originated on the ground floor, entirely destroyed the building - a two-storied wooden one - owing to the inflammable nature of its contents. There were five occupants of the building, all of whom have suffered serious loss.

On the ground floor, besides Mr. Grace, there were two other persons carrying on business, viz., Messrs. Stenberg and Russell, electro-platers and gilders ; and W. H. Hentsch, a surgical instrument maker. The upper storey of the building was occupied by Edward Williams, as a carpenter's workshop, and by Richard Morgan, a carver [is this father or son?]. It would appear that no one was on the premises at the time of the occurrence. Owing to the fortunate circumstance that two engines were located, one on either side, very near the place, the fire was confined to the building in which it originated, and was not allowed to spread to the adjoining premises, but these, nevertheless, were in considerable danger of being destroyed. A very few minutes after the first alarm was given, the City Fire Brigade from Park-street, and the No. 3 Company's engine from Castlereagh-street were on the spot, followed by the Insurance Companies' engine in charge of Superintendent Bown. A plentiful supply of water was then obtained from the main. The hook and ladder and fire escape, with their appliances, also very speedily arrived on the scene, and rendered good service under the guidance of their Superintendent, Mr. L. McGuinness.

Three large ladders having been hoisted against the adjacent house, the firemen, rapidly mounting,
were from this commanding situation enabled to pour a well-directed stream of water into the burning building. A large crowd speedily gathered, and for some time the street was completely blocked, but the police, who quickly arrived on the scene, maintained order, and the firemen were by this means not impeded in their efforts to subdue the flames, and save the premises on either side threatened with destruction. Next to the building, on the northern side, stands the shop of Mr. Oatley, plumber, and there are several Chinese tenants who occupy the premises on the
other side, all of whom had a narrow escape. One of Mr. Grace's men was seen to leave the building at about half-past 5 o'clock - the usual hour the workmen left off work, but at this time there appeared no sign of any fire on the premises. As far as is known, Messrs. Stenberg and Russell are the only tenants who have effected an insurance.

They have a policy for 300 in the Australian Mutual Insurance Company, but they state that
they have lost at least 700 by the fire, the cause of which is not known.

Notes
General:
Gladstone was in the AIF, 58th Battalion. He enlisted in July 1915, and was killed in action on 17 Jun 1918. He is buried at the Ribemont Communal Cemetery Extension, Somme, III, AA 6. His service number was 4178.

In July 1916 he was wounded in action and in 1917 he was absent without leave several times and was also charged with drunkenness and resisting arrest on one of these occasions. He was sent back to England as he was in early in 1918.

Ribemont is in the Department of the Somme, about 8 kilometres south-west of Albert. The Communal Cemetery is a little north of the village, on the west side of the road to Baizieux; and the Extension is on the south-west side of the Communal Cemetery.
Historical Information: This sector of the front was taken over by the Commonwealth forces in the early summer of 1915, when Mericourt-Ribemont Station, on the railway line from Amiens to Albert, became a railhead. However, it was not until the German advance at the end of March 1918 that the first burials were made at Ribemont, initially in the communal cemetery itself. The extension was begun in May and used until August 1918, when 68 burials were carried out by units engaged in the defence of Amiens. It was greatly enlarged after the Armistice when graves were brought in from the battlefields of 1918 east of Ribemont and from other cemeteries, including:- HEILLY BRITISH CEMETERY No.2 (so called in relation to Heilly Station Cemetery), which was in the grounds of Heilly Chateau. It was made by units in April-August 1918, and it contained the graves of 79 soldiers from Australia and 24 from the United Kingdom. HENENCOURT WOOD CEMETERY, was about 800 metres West of Henencourt, in the Wood. It was used by units and Field Ambulances from June 1916 to August 1918, and it contained the graves of 71 soldiers from the United Kingdom, 34 from Australia, one from Canada, one from South Africa, and one of an unknown unit. HENENCOURT COMMUNAL CEMETERY contained one British grave and one Australian, and the Extension 26 British and nine Australian, all of 1918. POINT 106 BRITISH CEMETERY, BRESLE, nearly 1.6 kilometres North-West of Bresle village, contained 25 graves of March-May 1918, 24 Australian and one British. In 1929, the burials in the communal cemetery were also moved into the extension. The extension now contains 498 burials and commemorations of the First World War. 36 of the burials are unidentified and there are special memorials to two soldiers whose graves in the communal cemetery could not be found, and to 16 buried in other concentrated cemeteries whose graves were destroyed in later battles. The extension was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
No. of Identified Casualties: 462

In memory of Gladstone, Alfred built a house in the main street of Garfield, Victoria, next door to the post office. He named the house Pozieres' House. This house burned to the ground sometime in the 1990's.

Notes
General:
surname DAWES.

From an undated (probably 1925) and unknown newspaper, a clipping of which I have a photocopy the following:

A sad death occurred in the West Gippsland Hospital on Sunday last, when Mrs Maude Hilda Hill (relict of the late Mr Abner Hill who died about 3 months ago) passed away, at the early age of 37 years. The deceased (who was a daughter of Mr A. Dawes, Garfield) had lived in the district practically the whole of her life, being highly esteemed by all who knew her. Sincere sympathy has been expressed for the bereaved relatives and family of four children (Maude, Edward, Hilda and Adelaide), who have lost a loving and devoted parent. The funeral took place to the Bunyip cemetery on Tuesday last. The burial service was conducted by the Rev. E. H. Eldridge, and Mr A Fennis carried out the funeral arrangements.

Notes
General:
Birth registered as Morgan. Always known as Dora.

Dora lived at Iona with her family and started school at the Iona State School in about 1913. They lived about 1/2 a mile from the Iona Post Office. They moved to Garfield in about 1916 and she attended Garfield State School Number 2724 until at least 1919.

After Dora and Douglas married, the lived in Dandenong for a short time, but returned to the Dawes family home where Douglas and Dora lived at home with her parents and cared for them until their deaths. She continued to live in the house that her father built, at 52 Garfield Road following her marriage and until her death in 1979. Her son, D Geoff, was born in that house in 1933. This house was sold following the death of Dora in 1979 and has since been renovated and sold several times. The original property was several acres, but part of the land was sold separately to Ken Towt, Dora's son-in-law. This piece of land was sold and a house was later constructed on it. Dora's house was situated at 52 Garfield Road Garfield, her son Geoff's house at what is now 46 Garfield Road, Garfield, Cliff's house at 42 Garfield Road, Garfield, Pearl's across the road on the corner of Barkers Road, and Garfield Road, and Beryl's later homes were in Archer Road in Garfield. Pax lived in Beaconsfield, Eve in Warragul and Alan at Beaconsfield, Upper Pakenham, and later in Drouin, whilst Geoff moved to Wonthaggi in 1973, he has continued to own the house at Garfield as well.

Dora was very family oriented and her home was always the hub of family visits, by both the Dawes and Blackwell families. Even after the death of her husband Douglas, Dora and the Blackwell family kept in touch with each other.

In 1937 Dora was expecting her 5th child and her health was not good. Douglas and Dora decided to hire a housekeeper in the short term to assist with domestic duties. They hired Cecilia Ryan, mother of the infamous Ronald Ryan. Pearl Madden recounted a story of the time when Cecilia's Husband Jack came to the house at 52 Garfield Road, Garfield and knocked on the front door asking to talk to his wife. Mrs Ryan did not want to talk to her husband, but he forced his way into the house and, armed with a bread knife, chased Cecilia around the kitchen table trying to stab her and shouting abuse. Pearl Blackwell grabbed her 2 younger brothers, Cliff and D. Geoff and run to the bedroom where the children hid under the bed until the commotion died down. I am uncertain if the police were called or if Jack Ryan simply calmed down and left. Allan Blackwell was born in 25 September 1937 and it is thought that Mrs Ryan left Garfield sometime after that time.

According to the book "The Hanged Man: The life and Death of Ronald Ryan by Mike Richards, published by Scribe Publications Melbourne in 2002, Cecilia had a son George b. 1915 by her first husband, George Thompson, she and George Thompson separated and she lived with John Ronald Ryan, known as Jack who was the father of Ronald, b. 1925, Violet b. 1927 and Irma b. 1929. Cecilia and Jack married in 1929 and Gloria was born in 1931.

Jack and Cecilia were both alcoholics and Jack was prone to bouts of violence whilst drunk and the children were neglected. Ronald was taken into care in late in 1936 and the 3 girls were taken into care in June 1937.

Following is an excerpt from the book from pages 25 and 26:-

"After losing all her children [Ron, Gloria, Irma and Violet] to wardships, Cecilia [Ryan] made a brave attempt to improve her situation. She had left Jack [Ryan] at Mitcham and taken a position as housekeeper with Douglas and Theadora Blackwell and their family at Garfield in Gippsland on the Princes Highway, some 80 miles south east of Melbourne. Cecilia moved back to Melbourne, where she took a further position as housekeeper for a man named Croaker living at 29 Park Street, Abbotsford. With her living conditions thus improved, Cecilia sought to have her children returned to her, as she had first done whilst at Garfield. In a plaintive letter to the secretary of the Children's Welfare Department, John Henry, Cecilia pointed out that Croaker was willing for her to have all her children with her, as she had been 'caring for his four little children so well':

Mr Croaker here has plenty of furniture and accommodation and as it is better for me to be earning my keep here and having the use of everything I thought I would write and ask if you would please let me have my children now. If not all of them at once surely you will give me little Gloria as she has such a terrible time with abscesses and I know it is only through fretting over me and she will never be well until you let her come to me.

I am away from my husband and got a good position and home and can give you good references from both the people I worked for at Gippsland and this man here to say how well I looked after both homes and children during the mother's absence........"

Mrs Ryan gave Dora and Douglas Blackwell a photograph of herself, Jack, George, Irma, Violet and Gloria, taken prior to the 3 girls being taken into care. This photograph and copies of it are still in the possession of the Blackwell family, with a note on the back about the bread knife incident written by Pearl Madden (nee Blackwell).

Dora was a very good seamstress, making many garments for her grandchildren. She also sewed, knitted and crocheted toys for her grandchildren as well as booties and baby clothes. She made picture scrap books that she gave away as presents.

She collected salt and pepper shakers for many many years, and her collection was divided amongst her 7 children when she died in 1979. She also collected small bottles. This collection was inherited by her granddaughter Coral Jones (Blackwell) who has continued the collection.

She was referred to as Nanna by all her grandchildren. 901

Notes
General:
A photocopy of the family bible has Walter's date of birth as July 19th 1893.

Walter (Wally) Dawes, a carpenter, of Iona, Victoria, Australia, enlisted at Warragul on the 20th of December 1915, and was later re-examined in Melbourne on the 18th January 1916. His service number was 4093. He was allocated to the 10/22 Reinforcements at Broadmeadows and embarked from Australia on 7 March 1916, however the name of the ship he left on is not recorded in his service record. I have found the ships name on the Australian War Memorial Website recorded as the HMAT Wiltshire. He travelled to Moascar, Egypt, where he was taken on strength from the 10/22 reinforcements to the 5th Cyclists Corp at Ferry Post.

The Cyclist Corp is a little known part of Australia's military history.

On the 10th March 1916, the Army circulated a memorandum (No.32) regarding the formation of the cyclist Corp. The Corp was formed in Egypt and was initially made up of volunteers in the 1st and 2nd Divisions and in April 1915 the 4th and 5th Divisions were formed. The Standard issue cycle was made by BSA (Birmingham Small Arms Company). By 1911 the BSA Mark IV model, fitted with a 'coaster' rear hub was in production, (today's equivalent would be like a velodrome bike with fixed hub which meant pedalling all the time) however, the Australian cyclists in Egypt had to persevere with a variety of BSA bicycles ranging from the Mark 1 to the Mark IV. It was not until July 1915 that the Mark IV was introduced, now fitted with hand-operated rear brakes, and a free wheeling hub in place of the coaster hub. Shortly after the Australian cyclists had reached France, this bicycle became the standard issue to cyclist units.

The cyclists were also given Lee Enfield SMLE .303 rifles which they normally slung over their shoulder but bikes were fitted with clips to carry the rifles, as well as straps and clips for the soldiers personal equipment. The units were also equipped with lightweight machine guns.

The 5th Cyclists Btn, of which Wally was a member, was inspected by General Godley on 29 April 1916 and a fortnight later took part in a tactical exercise in the desert in Egypt. On the 24th of May the 5th underwent their first firing practice on a musketry range. By 31 May 1916, the 5th had new rifles able to take high velocity cartridges, however such things as puncture repair kits and spare parts were not so readily available.

On the 16th of June 1916, the cyclists boarded a train which took them to Alexandria, where they embarked to France the next day. According to the book, Cycling to War by Ronald Austin, they arrived in Marseilles on 25 June, however, Wally's service record says he arrived in Marseilles on the 27th of June. After arrival in Marseilles, the Cyclists boarded a troop train and travelled to northern France.

Once they arrived in northern France they were issued with gas masks and instructed on how they were to be worn. On the 1st of July 1916, orders were received regarding the formation of the II Anzac Corp Cyclists Battalion, which was to consist of 1 and 2 companies provided by the New Zealand Cyclists Corp, who were still in Egypt, and the 3 and 5 companies, made up by the 5th Australian Cyclists, of which Wally was a member. The 5th were ordered to remain attached to the 5th Australian Division until the New Zealand cyclists arrived from Egypt. The New Zealand contingent arrived in Marseilles on 17 July 1916. Whilst the 1st and 2nd companies of the II Anzac Corp Cyclists Battalion were made up by the New Zealanders, the 3rd Company was made up from the 5th Cyclists plus a few from the 4th Cyclists. However, the New Zealanders bicycles did not arrive until August 1916, this made training very difficult with the shortage of machines. On the 16th of September the Cyclists moved to the frontline.

The unit patch was a 1 x 1 inch red diamond centred inside a 2 x 2 in white diamond worn on both sleeves. This patch was retained until 1918 when the unit was redesignated the XXII Corp Cyclists Battalion.

During the war the Cyclist Battalion undertook many tasks including, forming guards to escort the Corp Commander, traffic direction, frontline fighting, delivery of dispatches and cable burying. The Cyclists became so proficient at cable burying, they could lay large distances in a short time and eventually became the supervisors of cabling operations. They also provided work parties for various other battalions, including the Royal Engineers and were often attached to other units and battalions.

In October 1916 the II Anzac cyclists, less their bikes were sent to the trenches to fight. They worked with two companies on the line and the third in the support line. They worked on a 4 day rotating roster, 4 days in the trenches, and 4 days on the support line. After a month in the frontline the Cyclists were relieved by another battalion and they returned to Bac St Maur to collect their bicycles and returned to billets just outside of Doulieu.

Cyclists were often sent to other units and from 17 November 1916 to 29 May 1917, Wally was one of 25 Cyclists who was seconded to the Town Major of Armentieres as a fire brigade detail. During this time, on the 11th January 1917, Wally was treated for a septic hand.

In March - May 1917 the Cyclists undertook a large amount of telephone cable burying work. This work was carried out in the open and the Cyclists were vulnerable to enemy shell fire and gas attacks. Cable laying was carried often carried out at night with only natural light so as not to attract attention from the enemy. On completion of the cable work in May the Cyclists were given the task of constructing a track from the support and front lines then across no mans land through the enemies trenches to a point named Middle Farm about 500 yards north from Messines. The aim of the track was to allow horses to easily move up to and through the German trenches. After reconnaissance of the proposed route it was decided to carry out the necessary work at night prior to the main attack being launched. On the morning of the Messines battle, 7 June 1917, several parties were detailed to carry out specific tasks over a distance of 1.7kms. At 2.15am on 7 June, 291 troops and 13 officers cycled from Steenbecque to Hill 63 but en route were forced to don gas masks due to enemy gas shells landing in the area. This delayed their arrival, but the cyclists completed the 1.7 kms of track within 3 hours despite being under fire.

From the 14th of June for three weeks the cyclists were engaged in more cable burying tasks and were occasionally subjected to enemy fire. On the 22nd of June 1917, Wally was hospitalised due to gas. It appears he may have been sent back to England as the service record seems to read Belgravia for his place of hospitalisation. He returned to the Cyclists Battalion on 11 July 1917.

On 30th July 1917 Wally went on leave, returning on 15 August 1917. On 17 November 1918 Wally was detached to the 133 AT Coy until 15 January 1918.

On 1 January 1918 the II Anzac Cycles Corps were renamed the XXII Corps Cyclist Battalion and were to be restructured. The structure finally changed on 16 January with the departure of No 3 which joined the Australian Corp Cyclists. With the departure of the Australians, No 3 Company became a New Zealand Company sub unit.

The Australian Cyclists formed an entirely new unit, the Australian Corps Cyclists Battalion. The new unit was formed mainly from existing I Corps Cyclist Battalion plus a few from the II Corps. As of 1 January 1918 the strength of the Australian Corps Cyclist Battalion stationed at La Creche was 16 officers and 345 other ranks. The new unit could not accommodate all of the No 3 Australian Company so many cyclists were posted to either infantry or artillery units in need of reinforcements.

On the 16th of January 1918 Wally transferred from 22 Corps Cycle Battalion to the Australian Corp Cycle Battalion. He remained with that unit for the remainder of the war.

Wally was demobilised and left England on board the Mahai and returned to Australia in June 1919. He was classed as TPE at discharge.

Like so many of the soldiers who have returned home from war over the years, Wally was changed by his experiences and seems to have had little or no contact with his family following his return to Australia. It is now known that he spent some time in Newry, near Maffra where he probably continued working as a carpenter, as he had before the war. He then moved on to Canberra sometime in the late 1920's or early 1930's. He was living at the Capital Hill Camp in Canberra in 1932. This camp was a tent camp set up to house labourers and tradesmen who were working in Canberra at that time. He later moved to a guest house in Canberra where he spent about 20 years.

Sometime in the late 1950's, Wally's sister Dora (Theadora) set about tracing Wally's whereabouts. How she did this is uncertain, but she eventually found his location and wrote to Wally. Wally answered her letter and very soon after arrived at her home in Garfield. In April 1960 Wally made a Will in Canberra appointing his sister Dora as executrix of his Will and leaving her all his possessions. He gave his address as Garfield when he made this Will so he may have returned to Canberra to wind up his affairs at that time. He returned to Garfield and lived in a bungalow at his sister Dora's house in Garfield Road, Garfield for a short time, then in a 3 roomed wooden house at the corner of Jefferson Road and Railway Avenue in Garfield. He purchased this property on the 20th of July 1960 from L L Richardson and W Norrie with a deposit of 50 with the remaining 670 (noted on original receipt) to be paid within 6 months. Wally paid the outstanding amount of 680 (noted on final payment receipt, perhaps the extra 10 was to cover stamp duty) on the 28th of July 1960. Sadly the family only had a few short years with Wally back in their family. He developed dementia and was placed in Larundal Hospital in Bundoora sometime around 1963. He was later admitted to the Cheltenham Home and Hospital for the Aged at Warrigal Road Cheltenham, where he passed away in July 1965.

It was always thought that Wally had a partner at some stage in his life, however no details of her are known to any living family, other than that her name was Bessie. It is not known if they married and although there is a photograph of her that was probably in Wally's possessions there is no further information on Bessie at this time.

After Wally's death the house on the property was given to his niece Beryl Campbell and the land was given to his great nephew, Peter Towt. There was some problem with the land due to it containing a road easement which made the land difficult to sell. The house that was on the Garfield property was moved to a block at Pakenham Upper which was then owned by Wally's niece Beryl Campbell (Nee Blackwell) and her husband Don Campbell. 5474
