17. CHARLES MARTIN4 GRAVOLIN (ELIZABETH3 NILON, MICHAEL2 NEYLON, DAVID1) was born 19 Jul 1892 in Cootamundra NSW Australia, and died 10 Nov 1984 in Parramatta NSW Australia. He married (1) ELMA CLAIRE NOTLEY in Never Married, daughter of THOMAS NOTLEY and CLARA WITCHARD. She was born 1904 in Kempsey NSW Australia, and died 28 Feb 1989 in Brisbane Qld. Australia. He married (2) HILDA PARKER 27 Jul 1922 in Crookwell NSW Australia, daughter of THOMAS PARKER and ANASTASIA REIDY. She was born 23 Nov 1900 in Crookwell NSW Australia, and died 1984 in Parramatta NSW Australia.

Notes for CHARLES MARTIN GRAVOLIN:
Birth - 11556/1892 NSW
Death - /1984 NSW.
Baker and pastry cook.
At age 24 he enlisted in the infantry on 8th November 1916 at Liverpool NSW and was discharged 17th March 1919 at Victoria barracks Sydney as unfit to continue following his bronchial condition resulting from "Trench Fever" and his smoking habit. He was wounded in the left leg whilst fighting in France.
N 6819 AIF 6th Light Horse.
After the war he worked in Grafton and was a friend of Digby NOTT who was married to Leda Notley, sister of Elma Notley. Charles and Digby were both returned servicemen and met at the RSL in Grafton. Charles became friendly with Elma and she became pregnant.
In 1922 the year Elma gave birth to her daughter Betty, Charles had gone back to Cootamundra and married Hilda Parker. It is not known if Charles was aware of the pregnancy.
He lived in Queens Avenue Parramatta for a number of years and he died in the Curie Nursing Home Parramatta NSW.


Notes for ELMA CLAIRE NOTLEY:
Birth 3888/1904 NSW

Elma was pregnant with Betty at age 17-18 years, and her mother was deceased at this time. Her father placed advertisements in the Grafton paper seeking a foster family for the baby.
They made Elma give up her child and had her placed in foster care at age 4 months with the Williams family of Coffs Harbour.
Foster parents were Robert Williams and Ina Williams nee Bonwick.
It is not known why Charles Gravolin left town, but is thought that Elma's father would not let his daughter marry a Catholic and as he held high office in the Masonic Lodge he did not wish for any scandal to become known in the local area. Then again Charles may not have known about the pregnancy when he moved to Cootamundra.
Elma found that after she married "Frank" Jones that they could not have children so she asked her father (along with the support of her brother Osric and sister Leda) to have Betty returned to her, but her father told her that Betty had died.

Notes for BETTY EILEEN (GRAVOLIN-WILLIAMS) NOTLEY:
At age 4 months Betty was fostered in Coffs Harbour with Robert Williams and Ina Williams nee Bonwick. She was brought up as a Catholic and when her foster parents became ill she became the primary carer for them and also for an illegitimate child of Robert Williams junior and Nellie Simpson, Bernard Joseph Williams who was 3 years older than Betty. She may have been fostered as a companion for this grandchild, but then the foster care payments would have been very helpful in those times of the Great Depression.
Thomas Notley paid for the care of Betty but the payments ceased when Betty was around 8 years old.
Robert Williams senior contracted cancer and died in 1936 when Betty was 14, Ina had high blood pressure and frequent nose bleeds requiring constant nursing. Ina's daughter Hilda lived nearby but made life difficult for Betty, refusing to accept her as part of the family. The family home had to be sold on the death of Robert senior to pay debts so Ina and Betty moved into rented premises. Betty worked as a domestic for a number of homes in the earning enough to support Ina and eventually secured a job in the dining room of the railway station.
At age 18 she married Clyde Nicholson.
Ina moved in with Betty and Clyde until 1948, when she moved in with Bernard Williams and his wife Dorrie. Ina died in 1956.

Betty died from pancreatic cancer at Pindara Hospital Southport Qld.

Thank you Edmond,
There is one book left in the National Library ACT after the Canberra fires destroyed the original manuscript.
"Nilon Family - Michael Nilon and His Family in Australia"
Bev Rasker (Nilon) 2000.

It was interesting to see the links between Gwynne and Gravolin from two different lines.
Cheers,
Marlin.

Hi Marlin,
Well done. I did help Bev Rasker with the compilation of her book. I havent been able to contact her for some time - I am afraid that she may have passed away - do you know? It was very interesting.
I belong to the line of the framily from Michael David Nilon and Lucy Lenor Donovan. My mother was Ellen patricia Nilon. She was not married so my name is also nilon. Recently I decided to wite a story about my life and growing up as a catholic in country Australia. I published it myself and it is available on Amazon. It is called "Living a Lie" and author is Kevin Nilon. It follows pretty well the family of Mick and Lenor Nilon. Perhaps you might like to have a look at it.
Cheers
Kevin

Hello Marlin
How would you like to proceed with the Steel family information? How much detail are you looking for? I have delved into quite a few lines of the descendants of James Steel and Mary Greenwell and have a number of interesting stories from newspapers.
