Rutherglen, Victoria Australia with Carlyle Cemetery CofE Index.

When you drive into Rutherglen in Victoria, there is a sign by the road that states;

"SYDNEY MAY HAVE A NICE HARBOUR BUT RUTHERGLEN HAS A GREAT PORT"

Refering of course to it being the centre of Australia's oldest wine growing region situated in North-East Victoria, located near the banks of the Murray River.
Many Gold medals are being won around the world - especially with the full-bodied reds, Muscat and Tokay wines.

In 1858 Gold was found in the local area at Chiltern and Cornishtown. This started a wave of prospectors sinking duffer shafts along the quartz belts. A group of Indigo diggers spent several weeks digging a hole in the heart of Rutherglen. On Saturday, the 9th of September 1860 they finally struck gold starting the 'Wahgunyah Rush'. Within weeks thousands of people moved to Rutherglen.
By December of that year seventeen deep leads and seven reefs of gold had been found.

The Main Street of Rutherglen was established and staked claims were selling for 10 pounds per foot.

The Star Hotel was the first major establishment in the town on the corner of Argyle (Main) and Elizabeth (High) streets. Here the name of 'Rutherglen' was established over a few drinks!
David G. Hamilton suggested if the proprietor of the 'Star', John A. Wallace was prepared to shout the bar he could call the town after his native town in Scotland.

Wallace replied, "Right you are Davie, Rutherglen it shall be".

$7,500,000 worth of gold was stored in Rutherglen before it was taken to Melbourne by the Gold Escort.

The photograph at the bottom of this page after the index, complete with the chicken crossing the road, is Main street Rutherglen around 1908

Anzac Commemorative Medallion

Do you have a relative who was entitled to the Anzac Commemorative Medallion?
Every Anzac soldier who served on the Gallipoli Peninsula, or in direct support of operations there - or his family if he did not survive until into the late 1960s - was entitled to be issued with the Anzac Commemorative Medallion.
(shown below).

The medallion was issued in 1967, and as a result
MANY HAVE NEVER BEEN CLAIMED.

A little background reading...

Statement by the Prime Minister [of Australia],
the Rt. Hon. Harold Holt,
in the House of Representatives

16th March, 1967
The Minister for Defence announced that it had been decided by the Australian Government, in consultation with the New Zealand Government, to issue a medallion and lapel badge to the veterans of the Gallipoli Campaign.

I am glad to be able to announce that arrangements have now been completed for the production of the medallion and badge. The Minister for the Army will be arranging distribution to those wishing to receive them as soon as possible.

The Government hopes that production of the medallion and lapel badge will be sufficiently advanced to permit at least some of them to be distributed by Anzac Day.

The medallion (with the name of the recipient inscribed) will be issued to surviving members of the Australian Defence Force who served on the Gallipoli Peninsula, or in direct support of the operations from close off-shore, at any time during the period from the first Anzac Day in April, 1915, to the date of final evacuation in January 1916. Next of kin or other entitled persons will be entitled to receive the medallion on behalf of their relatives, if their relative died on active service or has since died.

For surviving members, a lapel badge will also be available for wearing. This will be a replica of the obverse (or front) of the medallion and will be about 1" high and 2/3" wide, the same size as the R.S.L. badge.

The medallion is the work of Mr. Raymond Ewers, the well-known Australian artist, based on a suggestion by Mr. Eric Garret, a staff artist with the Department of Army. It has been endorsed by both the Government of New Zealand and ourselves. It will be approximately 3" high and 2" wide. The obverse of the medallion depicts Simpson and his donkey carrying a wounded soldier to safety. It will be bordered on the lower half by a laurel wreath above the word ANZAC. The reverse (the back) shows a map in relief of Australia and New Zealand superimposed by the Southern Cross. The lower half will be bordered by New Zealand fern leaves.

The medallion will be cast in bronze and the lapel badge will be a metal of bronze colour

Sarah COBCROFT nee SMITH 1772-1857

Sarah Smith, the daughter of William SMITH 1752 - ? and Esther TURNER 1755-?. was baptised in Holborn, London on the 3 December 1772.
At just 17, Sarah was one of a small group of women and their children who arrived on the Neptune transport on 28 June 1790. She had accepted a government offer of a free passage to the colony for the wives or de facto partners of convicts on the 2nd. fleet.

In the colony she lived with John Frederick COBCROFT who had been born on 9 August 1756 in Keighley, Yorkshire and was onboard the 'Scarborough', (John together with 2 others, had been tried at the Old Bailey in 1788 for highway robbery on Edgeware Rd, London).

For some unknown reason, John and Sarah did not marry until the 24 December 1842, When Mary was 70 and John 86.

It seems almost certain that she embarked as Cobcrofts de facto wife.

John Cobcroft received a conditional pardon in December 1794 and a 30 acre grant on the left bank of the Hawkesbury river at Wilberforce Reach in July 1795. He was granted another 40 acres in the same district in June 1797. By July 1800 Cobcroft had 17 acres sown in wheat with seven ready for planting Maize, owned 9 hogs and 7 goats. Two years later he had 20 acres in Wheat and barley, 6 in maize and increasing numbers of hogs and goats. His holdings were increased by a 50 acre land grant in September 1802. Cobcroft mustered in 1806 with 120 acres ( nearly 33 cultivated in wheat, maize, barley, orchard and garden), 4 horses, 57 sheep, 40 goats and 15 hogs and 15 bushels of grain in store and supporting his wife and 3 convict workers. While many farmers were suffering from indebtedness and flood damage, his prosperity seems to have continued unchecked. In June 1820 Cobcroft petitioned and received a further 60 acre grant at Kurrajong. Sarah, a midwife, bore a total of ten children. In 1828 Cobcroft was described as a farmer of Wilberforce, living with his wife and their younger children; his older sons and their families were established on farms nearby. As a successful and properous farmer, he held 485 acres in 1828 (130 cultivated) and owned 7 horses and 300 cattle.
He kept the "George and Dragon" public house, at Wilberforce, from about 1822-1846 and was actively involved in the public life of the local community.

Throughout her working life Sarah acted as a midwife to the women of Wilberforce district and delivered the children of convict women free of charge.

[The portrait (below) of her painted in her old age shows a determined and indomitable matriarch.
She was reunited with her sister Susannah after a separation of 50 years when the latter arrived in the colony in 1839 (dying 1844),]

John Cobcroft died in Wilberforce on the 4 June 1853. Sarah died on 31 May 1857, aged 85, and was buried with her husband in the family vault in Wilberforce Cemetery. Their descendants are estimated to number well over 8,000.
The Sydney Morning Herald, Tuesday 12 July 1853
At his residence, Wilberforce, on the 4th
June last, Mr. John Cobcroft, aged 90 years,
an old and much respected colonist, leaving an
aged widow, three sons and five daughters,
fifty-eight grand-children, and forty-seven
great grand-children to deplore their loss.

Empire, Tuesday 2 June 1857
At her residence, on Sunday, 31 May ultimo, Mrs Sarah Cobcroft,
after a long and painful illness, aged 85 years, relict of
late John Cobcroft, Wilberforce, leaving a large family to lament
their loss, having lived to see the fifth generation.

Notes: See D. Bowd, Hawkesbury Journey p98; Sarah Smith was unable to write her name; some publications have incorrectly identified her as a female convict of this name who arrived on the Neptune; Sarah stated in her 1825 memorial (AONSW 4/1840C, p777) that she had come free to the colony together with six other females sent out by Government for the purpose of practising midwifery per ship Neptune; although she undoubtedly became a skilled midwife in the colony
there is no evidence that the Government sent free women to the colony for this specific purpose; her statement is more likely a slight distortion of the circumstances of her arrival in an attempt to
give her position and services a more official appearance; some details contibuted by W.J. Luxford, P. McIntyre & A. Needham.

John SIMPSON KIRKPATRICK 1892-1915 - ANZAC

John 'Jack' Simpson KIRKPATRICK was born at South Shields, Durham, England on the 6 July 1892. He was the son of Robert KIRKPATRICK born 26 Nov. 1837 in South Leith Scotland and his wife Sarah SIMPSON born 14 September 1885 in Glasgow. As a child during his summer holidays he worked as a donkey-lad on the sands of South Shields.

After his father died on the 10 October 1909, Jack took on the role of bread winner for the family.

In 1910 he joined the crew of the SS Yeddo as a fireman and sailed for Newcastle, New South Wales, always sending money back home to his mother. (His mother passed away on the 9 March 1933 at South Shields).

On the 30 May 1910, When the Yeddo arrived in Newcastle, Jack deserted and for the next few years he worked a lot of different jobs. He tried coal mining in Newcastle, went cane cutting up in Queensland and drove cattle on the Liverpool Plains.

Sometime around the end of 1913 Jack joined the crew of the SS Yankalilla which was headed to Western Australia with a shipload of coal from Newcastle. Once it docked in Fremantle, on the 3 January 1914, Jack again took off. He managed to pick up plenty of odd jobs around the place.

On the 25 August 1914 at Blackboy Hill, 35 ks east of Perth in Western Australia Jack enlisted as John SIMPSON a ship's fireman, dropping the surname KIRKPATRICK, thinking they may not take too kindly to a merchant navy deserter and quite possibly would arrest him. He gave his mother as next of kin, calling her Sarah SIMPSON of 141 Bertram St, South Shields, Durham.

Jack was chosen as a stretcher bearer with the 3rd. Field Ambulance. This job was only given to strong men so it seems that his work as a fireman in the Merchant Navy had prepared him well for his exceptional place in history.

The strong, fair haired John SIMPSON became Australias most famous, and best-loved military hero without ever having to fire a shot.

On the 25th April 1915, he, along with the rest of the Australian and New Zealand contingent landed at the wrong beach on a piece of wild, impossible and savage terrain now known as Anzac Cove.

[Out of the 1500 men who landed in the first wave, only 755 remained in active service at the end of the day. The sheer number of casualties necessitated that stretcher bearing parties be reduced in the size from 6 to 2. Simpson then decided that he could operate better by acting alone. He spied a deserted donkey in the wild overgrown gullies and decided to use it to help carry a wounded man to the beach. From that time on, he and his donkey acted as an independent team. Instead of reporting to his unit, Simpson camped with the 21st Kohat Indian Mountain Artillery Battery - which had many mules and nicknamed Simpson "Bahadur" - the "bravest of the brave".]

From that day on Jack became a part of the scene at Gallipoli walking along next to his donkey, forever singing and whistling as he held on to his wounded passengers, seemingly completely fatalistic and scornful of the extreme danger.
He led a charmed life from 25th April 1915 until he was hit by a machine gun bullet in his back on 19th May 1915.


In just 24 days Jack rescued over 300 men down the notorious Shrapnel and Monash Valley. His prodigious, heroic feat was accomplished under constant and ferocious attack from artillery, field guns and sniper fire.

Quoted from some of his officers:

"Almost every digger knew about him. The question was often asked: "Has the bloke with the donk stopped one yet?"

"he was the most respected and admired of all the heroes at Anzac."

Captain C. Longmore, in 1933, remembered how the soldiers "watched him spellbound from the trenches... it was one of the most inspiring sights of those early Gallipoli days."

Colonel John Monash wrote "Private Simpson and his little beast earned the admiration of everyone at the upper end of the valley. They worked all day and night throughout the whole period since the landing, and the help rendered to the wounded was invaluable. Simpson knew no fear and moved unconcernedly amid shrapnel and rifle fire, steadily carrying out his self imposed task day by day, and he frequently earned the applause of the personnel for his many fearless rescues of wounded men from areas subject to rifle and shrapnel fire."

Every year on April the 25th, Australians and New Zealanders remember our ANZACS. A promise made in 1915 which we have passed on down to our children. And The Band Plays Waltzing Matilda as we reflect on the tragedy of war.

Not Only A Hero adapted from the book by Tom Curran is an illustrated life of Simpson, the Man with the Donkey, part of the Spirit of Anzac website.

The inscription on John SIMPSON's grave reads;

JOHN SIMPSON
KIRKPATRICK SERVED AS
202 PRIVATE
J SIMPSON,
AUST. ARMY MEDICAL CORPS,
19TH MAY 1915 AGE 22

Frank Hilton EATHER 1883-1917 -ANZAC

Frank was the son of Joseph Hiorns Rutter EATHER 1861-1884 and Clara RIDGE 1860-1941.

Early in life Frank EATHER displayed considerable musical and artistic talent. Around the turn of century he was amongst the art exhibitors at the annual Hawkesbury District Agricultural Shows. Some very famous artists were amongst the judges in the fine arts section around that time. They included Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton and Sid Long.In one year when Tom ROBERTS was the judge, Frank's prize-winning entry consisted of sketches of a number of the officials of Show Society, including one of the first secretary, Charles S GUEST. When the Society produced its history, "The Hawkesbury on Show" on the occasion of its hundredth Show in the 1980's, it featured a selection of sketches from Frank's prize-winning entry on the cover.

About 1902 romance blossomed between Frank EATHER and Blanche MORTIMER. She was 24, having born on 15 June 1878, the youngest of the ten children of Yarramundi farmer Henry Francis MORTIMER and wife Philadelphia CHANTLER. Henry Francis MORTIMER was one of the younger sons of George MORTIMER who had arrived at Richmond age 21 years and had received a grant of 100 acres of land. George MORTIMER hailed from a family of farmers in Wiltshire, England.

Henry Francis MORTIMER had died unexpectedly on 5 July 1878, not quite a month after Blanche's birth. When Blanche was ten her mother succumbed to pneumonia and she was left an orphan with three married sisters and six young siblings. There were a number of CHANTLER relatives in the Hawkesbury district and it was there that she grew up and in due course became close friends with Frank EATHER, who was six years her junior. They shared a common feature in their backgrounds. Neither of them could remember his/her respective father. On 17 April 1903 a son was born to Blanche and Frank in Wheeler's Lane, Sydney - a short street that no longer exists. Recorded originally as Eugene Allan, his name eventually became Alan Eugene because he didn't like the name Eugene.

At that time Frank's mother, Mrs Clara EATHER, was residing in George Street, Windsor and she was the organist at St Matthew's, Anglican Church. Residing with her was her elderly mother, Mrs Charlotte Margaret RIDGE, who had been a widow since the death of her husband John RIDGE. A descendant of the well-known COBCROFT family, she was a well-informed and interesting old lady until she was stricken with paralysis. Grandson Frank was one of the mourners at her funeral in 1906.

During the festive season of 1906, Frank EATHER nearly lost his life. Fanny RIDGE, an elder sister of Frank's mother Clara, had married William RICHARDS, a son of Benjamin RICHARDS and Elizabeth Eather WILLIAMS. They and their children lived at Port Hacking. Frank and his sister Mattie were holidaying with them and were out in a boat on the bay when a mishap occurred. Frank was almost drowned and was unconscious when pulled from the water by one of his cousins. The incident received mention in the Windsor newspaper of the day.

On 19 July 1908 a daughter was born to Blanche and Frank and named Enid. This daughter was only a small child of five when her mother died from what later became known as deep vein thrombosis. Frank went to his aunt Emma MORGAN of Abercrombie Street, Sydney, and Enid to her aunt Sarah GORNALL who lived at Chatswood. World War I broke out in August 1914 and on 3 November that year Frank Hilton EATHER enlisted in the Australian Army. He named his mother as his next-of-kin. Allocated to the 1st Battalion, 1st Infantry Brigade with the number 1462, he did his initial training and less than two months later was promoted to the rank of corporal. Sent overseas with reinforcements to the Mediterranean early in 1915, he was taken on strength at Gallipoli on 7 May, just a fortnight after the historic landing that made the name ANZAC famous. On 20 June 1915 he was promoted to lance-sergeant and saw further action on Gallipoli until 20 October 1915, when he was evacuated to Mudros on the island of Lemnos, suffering from diarrhoea. On 25 November 1915 he embarked for England on the "Aquitania" and on 4 December was admitted to the London War Hospital at Epsom.

After six months in England, Frank departed with the 35th Draft to join the British Expeditionary Force in France, and reported to the 1st ADBD at Etaples on the following day. He marched out of this Unit on 20 December 1916 and rejoined 1st Battalion three days later. On 8 January 1917 he was absorbed from the supernumerary list of non-commissioned officers to replace Corporal BRADSHAW who had died of wounds, and on 29 January he was promoted to Temporary/Sergeant. In action on the western front, T/Sgt Frank EATHER was reported missing on 5 May 1917.
A court of inquiry found that he had been killed in action some time between the 5th and 8th of May. He left two children, Alan Eugene, then age 14 years, and Enid, age 9 years. His mother was duly notified of the death of her only son.
The name Sgt Frank EATHER appears on the honour roll inside St Matthew's Church at Windsor, and his name is also recorded on the headstone of his maternal grandparents John and Charlotte RIDGE in the churchyard.

For the honour of Australia, our mother,

Side by side with our kin from across the sea,

We have fought and we have tested one another,

And enrolled among the brotherhood

We are ANZACS


Remember the Anzacs
LEST WE FORGET

Location on the Roll of Honour Frank H Eather's name is located at panel 29 in the Commemorative Area at the Australian War Memorial (as indicated by the poppy on the plan below).

The Quin

Talking about Quinn's brought back a memory of a funny story. I was at a roadhouse in the Northern Territory called Threeways,just north of Tennant Creek, back in 1988 and in the bar(where else?) This bar is 24 hours and attracts tourists, truckies,miners,ringers desperados and the locals. The walls of the bar are covered in all sorts of things including car number plates notes to and from people passing through etc. and one wall has money stuck on it from all parts of the world.

In walk two aboriginal boys from a community the other side of Phillip Creek . They barely speak english and are catching the bus to see the doctor 560ks south in Alice Springs.
They see the money on the wall and pay particular attention to the Irish pound note.
They point to the picture of the queen on the colourful note and ask me, "Who That?"
I said, "That's the Queen.
"Quin?"
"Yes" I repeated
"Who Quin?"
I said, "She's the boss"
"Where quin live" they ask.
"Oh, she lives a long way away. In England"
"We can go see Quin?"
" NO no no it's too far."
"How long way?" they asked again.
"A very, very long way, on the other side of the world." I explain.
after confering together for a minute, they both said,
"Ahhhhhhh Near Kalgoorlie"
"Yes" said I. " Near Kalgoorlie."

For those of you who don't know. Kalgoorlie is in Western Australia and a short cut is down the Gun Barrell highway from Alice Springs
