while looking for Emma STENT I came across this . . .

Emma Stent married my great grandmother's brother and I have just been doing a research on all the women of that family.

I came across this very interesting write up about her father CAPTAIN JAMES HAYTER JACKSON who was one of the first 50 people to emigrate to New Zealand and he set up a whaling station in Marlborough. When he first arrived he spent the early years living with the famous maori chief Te Rauparaha.

BUT, for me, even more interesting is that Emma, his daughter, the woman I was researching, married twice - first marriage (to John Lynds who died in Australia somewhere) she had 4 children to.

The second marriage to Charles Stent she had another 16 CHILDREN TO !!! - (actually 10, see link below)

3 years on and the above info has now been amended after much research and HEAPS of help from Malcolm - read here: Emma JACKSON-LYNDS

from the WEST AUSTRALIAN, 5 September 1912

- Roebourne, Spet 4

In the Licensing Court on Monday William John HENDERSON and Thomas Wrixon CONWAY, the licensees respectively of the Whim Creek and Federal Hotels, Whim Creek, were called on to show cause why their licences should not be cancelled for not keeping their hotels up to the standard required by the Act.

The evidence of the police went to show that the premises were unsuitable. There was no accommodation and the buildings were dirty. The walls of the rooms were only eight feet high. Women arriving at Whim Creek had to sit up all night on the verandah opposite the police station, while children slept in the building.
Constable GROWDEN was asked what he would suggest to improve the places, and he replied that a fire-stick would be the best thing.

The defence was a general denial of the allegations. The reason that no money was spent in improvements was that the licensees were saving money with which to build new premises.

Mr DAVIES, who appeared for the licensees, stated that it seemed to him that the reason or the prosecution was to clear the way for a State Hotel, a petition for the provision of which had been prepared.

Corporal FOULKES applied for the cancellation of the licenses.

The Court decided to proceed to Whim Creek to inspect the premises and adjourned the furhter hearing sine die.

Mr SLEEMAN, the manager of the West Pilbarra Trading and Finance Company, said that the material for a new hotel was on the way from England

Does anyone know of a Edith White who married Samuel Peck jnr in 1905/6 - maybe in Lower Hutt - but some of the family were in Woodville during this era so that is a possibility
I am trying to find who her parents were thereby tracing her back to Reuben King as it is said he was her grandfather

the ages of William & Deborah on the 1911 cencus do not match their ages recorded at death
- if William was 50 in 1911 his birth date should be about 1861
- (age at death should then be 56 but is recorded as 66)
- if Deoborah was 49 in 1911 her birth date should be about 1862
- (age at death should then be 69 but is recorded as 73)

the census says they had 8 children and that 8 children were still living in 1911
- only 7 known at this time, your help would be appreciated
