Alfred James Holman was a carpenter as was his father. He was born in Camden Town in the County of Middlesea and baptised at St. Pancras Church London and migrated to Australia in 1871. He married Sophia Cupit in Orange NSW in the Trinity Church Of England on 30th. November 1876. He was aged 28. Their first child was stillborn and after the birth of their second child they moved from Orange to Windsor and moved into one of the houses on the Cupit land in George Street. Alfred built addittional houses and replaced those built by his fatherinlaw.
"Cupitt house" can be seen today as it is a coffee shop last occupied by Nora Cupit nee McMahon, a teacher who taught grade three at Windsor Primary and had Jack Holman and his son Robert as pupils.
Alfred continued to work as a carpenter in the Windsor district but contracted typhoid from contaminated foundations of a house he was demolishing in the town and died shortly after in 1855 aged 36. Sophia was left with three children 4 years and under to raise.
It is noted that a school boy who sold her a load of fire wood for 2/6 stole a grindstone valued at 2/-. George PLATT pleaded guilty in the local court and was imprisoned for 7 days.
Hence our Holman line in Australia.
