Notes
General:
Elizabeth Ann MORGAN married Alfred DAWES. They had 12 known children.

All but the first of these children were registered as DAWES and Charles Edward DAWS.

Very little is known about the family of Richard Morgan and Elizabeth Swindon.

Richard was a wood carver, he married Elizabeth in England and came to Australia, from England in 1858. Elizabeth, died with seven children, when Frances, the youngest had just turned one year old, and in the same year Frances's 7 year old brother died as well. It is thought that Richard, left at least the younger children and they were apparently put into an orphanage or similar, probably somewhere in Melbourne. What happened to the two older children, Richard and Jane is not known. Perhaps they went with their father to Sydney, but that is unknown at this time. Richard died of throat cancer in an asylum for the infirm and destitute in Sydney. There was very little information on his death certificate apart from his name and age. The informant knew nothing of his marital status, his occupation and any personal details whatsoever.

Frances, the youngest sister of Elizabeth, had one illegitimate child in the Castlemaine area and returned to Melbourne where she had another child. It is uncertain if this child is the child of Alfred Dawes. Frances then moved in with her two sisters, Elizabeth and Louisa, who were living in the Garfield / Iona area, Victoria, Australia, with Alfred Dawes. Each of the three sisters had children to Alfred Dawes over many years, and their surnames were registered as Dawes, Morgan or occasionally Morgan Dawes. All of the children, approximately 28 in total used Dawes as their surname.

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 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 i England, 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, presumably 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:
Like many of the Dawes men, Arthur was a tall straight man all his life. He lived in New South Wales as long as I can remember. I remember visiting him at his little home at Curlwaa several times. The first time I can recall was around 1961.

After Flo died, Arthur lived alone for some time. In around 1979, Arthur's son Cliff and his family were living with Arthur whilst they were between homes. They had purchased a block of land close to Wentworth and would later build a home there.

Arthur always had birds, including chooks and parrots, at his house and in later years there were many trophies scattered on top of those cages deteriorating in the sun. He had many many ribbons inside the house, prizes from poultry shows. Arthur was a keen poultry fancier until his later years when he was unable to care for his beloved fowls. He passed his fowls onto his son, but he did not have such an interest in the birds as Arthur had done.

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.
