Notes
General:
Gladys lived at Maffra until about March 1919, Trafalgar until March 1940 and then as per her husband's movements thereafter. She never seemed to mind the constant shifting around.

She was extremely accomplished at many types of handiwork, particularly, knitting, crochet, embroidery and smocking. She would experiment with many types of handiwork. In later life she turned her hand to painting of many kinds. As her eyesight began to fail she had to stop doing much of the finer work that she had previously done.

She was known as Grandma or Nanna to her grandchildren.

Notes
General:
Harry was a very nice little baby and won a baby competition. As a boy the family moved to Mount Speed near Trafalgar.

Later the whole family and the house were moved into Trafalgar and the small three bedroom home now housed two families, his elder sister Gladys and her family were living with them as well. Due to limited space the story has it, that Harry used the bathtub for his bed. During his young adult years, Harry played for Trafalgar local footy club.

Harry used to have a pony called Little Bob to round up the cattle at work. Little Bob preferred to play rather than work which always used to frustrate Harry.

In WW2, Harry wanted to do his army service so he joined the army at age 23 (1941). At Army camp, he and a lot of his army mates got food poisoning from the copper pots they cooked in, and didn't end up going to war. Harry served in World War 2 - WILSON HARRY ALLENBY : Service Number - VX46049 : Date of birth - 24 Mar 1918 : Place of birth - MAFFRA VIC : Place of enlistment - CAULFIELD VIC : Next of Kin - WILSON FREDERICK.

After he was discharged he took up work with his father as a slaughterman at the Trafalgar slaughter yard.

Probably about 1942, the family moved to Somerville Rd in Kingsville to find more work opportunities.

In 1944, Harry married his first wife Violet and they built a house together possibly at 17 Salisbury Street, Yarraville in Melbourne.

Harry often visited his sister Gladys and her family when they lived at Jindivick and shot rabbit, quail and kangaroo. He enjoyed riding motorbikes and had an accident in Melbourne, with a bus which caused him to be out of work for a while. His jaw was wired shut after the accident and he had to be fed through a straw.

After the war, while living in Port Melbourne, Harry tried to teach his nieces and nephew how to swim.

Harry enjoyed travelling and in 1954, after the break up of his first marriage, Harry purchased an around the world ticket and travelled by ship to Europe for first time on his own, visiting London, Rome, Holland, France, Scotland, Ireland as well as New York and Chicago. The first part of the ship's journey from Australia to Rome took 3 to 4 weeks by sea. While overseas, he was always in search of family members he had never met.

Harry and Violet divorced in the early 1960's, possibly about 1962. It appears that Harry may not have been contactable during the divorce proceedings and his mother was subpoenaed to appear at the divorce proceedings.

Harry loved and owned cats throughout his life. He always took in strays and used to bring meat home for the cats and the family from work.

Around the mid-1950s, Harry and his brother Ken rented a farmhouse on the farm next door while building a 3 bedroom shack on the bush block brought by Harry in Carrajung Lower with nephew Max Bonham. Harry drove every 2 to 3 weekends in his Chrysler ute from Melbourne to Carrajung Lower until the shack was built.

While living with his brothers, Ken and Eric, their niece Nancy Bonham was married in 1957. The three brothers brought Nancye a wedding gift but made sure the appliance was well run in before Nancye received the gift. This gift was an electric frypan.

Harry eventually sold the bush block and moved to Hedley with Ken to a share farm. Harry continued to work part-time as a slaughterman for a local butcher in Foster and travelled all over South Gippsland region as well as working on the dairy farm.

In the mid 1960s, Harry and Ken brought a farm together on Billy Creek Road in Stacey's Bridge. In the 1970s they lost the farm to the Federal Government and drought. Harry moved to Devon North in the mid 1970's and worked for the Shire of Alberton until his retirement.

Harry attended Yarram church services and participated in many church events, and in 1970, Harry met Ada, a widow with four children. On the 4th of March 1978, Harry married Ada and moved a Yallourn house to Yarram where they lived for the rest of their years. Gert, Ada's eldest son would regularly spend time on projects with Harry which included the building of two sheds.

Harry loved to tinker in his large shed. He also enjoyed collecting things and regularly visited the "free local supermarket" otherwise known as the local tip, in his ute. The tip also provided the parts for 2 bikes which he made with Ken for Ken's two daughters. He was very resourceful and loved to use the welder. Eventually the local tip changed to a transfer station where items had to be paid for, which made Harry most unhappy. Trash and Treasure was another favourite place to visit while visiting family in Footscray Melbourne.

In 1979, Harry and Ada and two of Ada's children, Helen and Ria went over on a working holiday for a few weeks in England and in 1985 they visited Holland and Ireland together.
Ada and Harry would be the support crew for many cycling trips with Ada's family. These bike rides took them to Hall's Gap, across Gippsland, as well as Tasmania and New Zealand, which Harry thoroughly enjoyed.

Harry and Ada, by this time, well into their 80's, purchased a camper van for their annual camping trip with Ada's family. They also visited Corowa, NSW on a number of occasions where Harry's younger brother Eric and his wife ran a motel.

Visits to Ada's children, Gert and Janet on a Sunday afternoon often lead into tea. Harry and Ada enjoyed a game of cribbage and cards, particularly euca.

Harry enjoyed his food and loved to eat. Throughout their marriage, before every meal Harry and Ada would traditionally hold hands, say a prayer and give each other a loving peck before eating. In the last 4 or 5 years, Harry took on the role as head chef in the Wilson household and regularly cooked three meals a day for Ada. Once Ada went into Crossley House, Harry visited her every day to show the deep love and care that he had for her over their 35 years of marriage.

After Ada's death Harry's health deteriorated and Harry moved into the Grand Ridge Aged Care Facility in Mirboo North, where he had many visits from friends and family and celebrated his 95th birthday before he passed away peacefully on Tuesday 7th May.

Harry's wife, Ada.............................
Ada was born in Holland. Her father was a school teacher but he was killed in an accident when Ada was 12 years old. The family then moved to Amsterdam and Ada graduated as a teacher. WW2 started two years after her graduation.

Ada married her first husband Henk Schepers. Henk was a carpenter and the couple decided to emigrate to Australia, but this took some time and their first two children were born in Holland. By the time Henk and Ada made it to Australia, 4 of Henk's brothers and 2 of his sisters had already arrived in Australia.

When they first arrived in Australia Henk and Ada lived at The Gurdies. They lived for a short time at Mincha in Northern Victoria, then they went to a wheat farm at Woorak. After 2.5 years at Woorak, they returned to Lang Lang and Koo Wee Rup area where Henk and his brother set up a building business.

In 1965 the family moved to Won Wron where Henk passed away in 1976.

Ada and her first husband Henk had 4 children, Gert, Arian, Helen and Ria.

Ada met Harry Wilson at Church in Yarram about 1970 and they married in 1978.

A funeral service was held for Ada at the Yarram Community Church, 122 Commercial Road, Yarram. She was privately cremated following this service.

Notes
General:
Langley is a village and civil parish in the English county of Essex, seven miles west-south-west of Saffron Walden. The Parish of Langley consists of two parts, Langley Upper Green and Langley Lower Green which are linked by roads and footpaths.

John Wilson and Martha Burgess had 7 known children, William b. 1827 m. Rosamond Godber had 9 children, Elizabeth b. 1830 m. William Herbert, had 8 children, John Burgess b. 1833 m. Christina McPherson & Had 10 children, Martha b. 1835 m. Robert Godber, Joseph, b. 1837 m. Sarah Whatmough & had 8 children, James b. 1839, and David b. 1843 m. Elizabeth McPherson & had 11 children..

John and Martha boarded a ship called Burhampooter in October 1843. The ship sailed from the London docks with 94 emigrants on board to proceed to Cork but bad weather caused the captain to hove to in the Margate Roads and anchored but the ship was driven from her anchorage and was hurled on to the chalk rocks of Foreness Rock about half a mile from Margate between Clifton Baths and Kingston. Everyone was saved from the ship and they were put up at public houses. Despite the loss of all their possessions the Wilson's went back to London and a week later they boarded the " Royal Consort " and arrived after 98 days at Melbourne on 18th Feb 1844.

Extract from "Chronicle" 18 October 1843. Page 147 Westminster Library, London.

"Fearful Storm at Sea and Shipwreck
Throughout yesterday and today a most awful storm raged along the Eastern coast causing a tremendous sea. The loss of life and property was truly distressing. Among the many casualties that occurred was the total loss of the British built Ship "Burhampooter" C.G. Cowley, Commander, which took place about 6am on the rocks off the south east portion of the town of Margate. The unfortunate ship, which was a very fine vessel of 55 tons, had been chartered by Carter and Bonus, the Emigrant Agents of Leadenhall Street, for the conveyance of emigrants on the part of the Government of Port Phillip. Owing to her size and construction, she was well adapted for that line of traffic, every accommodation being made that could give comfort to the passengers during their tedious voyage.

On Monday last, she sailed from the London Docks, having on board 94 emigrants beside the crew. They consisted of twenty one women, forty four children and the rest men. The voyage to the sea was as favourable as could be desired and it was the intention of the Captain to proceed to Cork for the purpose of receiving the remainder of the emigrants, but bad weather threatening, she hove to last night in the Margate Roads and anchored, orders being given to make her as snug as possible. She wore the gale gallantly and hopes were entertained that she would ride it out when a fearful blast drove her from the anchorage and she was instantly hurled on to the chalk rocks of Foreness Rock about half a mile distant from Margate Town between Clifton baths and Kingston. The sea at the time was breaking over her decks. All was confusion on board and the shock being so great as to carry away her rudder, she instantly filled. The decks were now crowded with the unfortunate emigrants and a scene of the most heart-rending character presented itself, everyone expecting every moment to be swept into the sea and either be dashed to pieces or drowned. Captain Cowley entreated of them to be tranquil and fortunately they obeyed, and after a short lapse of time, several Margate luggers came out and succeeded in taking every soul off the ill-fated ship and landing them safely. The poor emigrants were in a most deplorable state, being completely drenched. Carts having been secured, they were without loss of time, conveyed on to Margate where they were billeted at the several public houses and received in a very hospitable manner.


"Loss of the Burhamptoor" The Illustrated London News October 1843
Among the many distressing casualties that have occurred at sea, within these few days we regret to record the total loss of the British-built ship Burhampooter, Captain C. G. Cowley, commander. About six o'clock on the morning of the 18th, she was driven from her anchor during the storm, on the rocks off the south-east portion of the town of Margate. The ship was 550 tons burthen, and stood in the class A1 at Lloyd's. She was the property of Captain Arthur, and was chartered by Carter and Bonus, the emigrant agents of Leaslenhall-street, for the conveyance of emigrants on the part of government to Port Phillip.

On the previous Monday she sailed from the London Docks, having on board ninety-four emigrants, besides the crew. They consisted of twenty-one women, forty-four children, and the rest men, chiefly belonging to the labouring class. The voyage to sea was as favourable as could be desired, and it was the intention of the captain to proceed on to Cork, for the purpose of receiving the remainder of the emigrants; but, bad weather threatening, she hove to on Tuesday night in the Margate Roads, and anchored, orders being given to make her as snug as possible. The ship rode the gale gallantly, and hopes were entertained that she would ride it out, when a fearful blast drove her from her anchorage, and she was instantly hurled by the currents on the chalk rocks, about half a mile distant from Margate town, between Clifton Baths and Kingston, the sea at the same time breaking over her decks.

All was confusion on board, and the shock being so great as to carry away her rudder, she was bilged, and as instantly filled. The decks were now crowded by the affrighted emigrants. The captain entreated them to place themselves under his command, when he would most assuredly promise them that they would all be saved. Fortunately, they obeyed his wish, and, in a short time, several Margate luggers came off and succeeded in taking every soul from off the ill-fated ship, and landing them safely. The poor emigrants were in a most deplorable state, being completely drenched, and in their night-clothes, the catastrophe having occurred after they had retired to rest. Carts having been procured, they were, without loss of time, conveyed to Margate, where they were billeted at the several public-houses. The above facts have been confirmed by letters from the captain to Carter and Bonus, who, immediately on knowing the fact, caused a messenger to be dispatched to Margate in order to conduct the emigrants back to London, where suitable accommodation has been provided them until the sailing of the next packet (the Royal Consul) on the 1st of November next.

The vessel lay about a quarter of a mile from the land, and some hopes were felt during Wednesday that she would be got off, being in an upright position; but the gale continuing during the whole of the night, on Thursday morning she was found on her beam ends. At low water, she was high and dry, full a quarter of a mile from the sea; and there was not a doubt among the pilots and other nautical men at Margate, that if she had not been a strong built ship, nothing could have saved her from going to pieces at the moment of striking, when all on board must have been lost. She was built at Sunderland in 1841. We regret to add that on Saturday she became a total wreck, and very little of her stores have been saved. Her loss and stores are estimated at 12,000; but she was insured.

The poor emigrants are the greatest sufferers, for they have lost nearly every article they possessed; but the contractors, Messrs. Carter and Bonus, have humanely undertaken to supply them at their own expense with bedding, and also things sufficient for their voyage in another ship. A subscription has also been opened for further supplying them with clothes and the necessary tools for their trades; without which aid they would most probably be landed in a distant country in comparative destitution. We perceive that these sufferers have been (?) from the funds of the Shipwrecked Fishermen and Mariners' Benevolent Society an institution worthy of especial support from those who can enjoy "the luxury of doing good"
.

John opened a butcher shop in Stephen Street, now Exhibition Street, Melbourne and lived there for 6 years. More of the history of John Wilson can be found in the "The Diamond Valley Story by Dianne H Edward and "Before You Came: by John Ryan.
