John & Ann McKinnon arrived in Fremantle on the Convict ship 'Racehorse', John being one of the pensioner guards.
'Racehorse' left Portland, England on 26 May 1865. She carried the 32nd of 37 shipments of male convicts destined for Western Australia. The voyage took 76 days and the 'Racehorse' arrived in Fremantle 10 Aug 1865 with 172 passengers and 278 convicts.
Of the 172 passengers, 159 were pensioner guards and their families, the number being made up of 50 pensioner guards, 31 wives, 38 sons and 40 daughters. .
John & Ann McKinnon lived in the Pensioner Guard Barracks, in Toodyay (known then as Newcastle).

* The MOTHER of Frederick McKinnon Hawkins , Maria Hawkins, was born in Belfast, a daughter of ? Hawkins & Mary McCann (1816-1880). Her father died in Belfast before 1853 and her mother next married Joseph Gilmore 26 Aug 1853 in Belfast. Joseph, his wife Mary and his step-daughter, 26 year old Maria Hawkins, emigrated into Fremantle 3 July 1857 on the Convict Ship 'Clara', Joseph being one of the convict guards.

The other 23 passengers have not been accounted for but were possibly cabin passengers or regular soldiers. List of the guards. Joseph & Maria lived in the Pensioner Guard Barracks, in Toodyay.
NOTES Enrolled Pensioner Guards who came to WA as guards on board the convict ships, were known as Pensioner Guards (aka Enrolled Pensioner Force or Enrolled Guards). The Enrolled Pensioner Guards comprised of aged or invalid military personnel who were unfit for active duty but capable of fulfilling a role as garrison troops or convict guards.

Frederick McKennon Hawkins was born 11 years after his mother Maria arrived in Toodyay & 3 years after his father John arrived. Maria died 3 days after he was born.
NOTE A few things to ponder .. At the time of his birth, John & Ann had been married for 11 years and no children yet found. At 37 Maria was still unmarried. Was she having this baby for them? or was it simply an affair? Did John & Ann bring Frederick up?

John McKinnon died 30 June 1874 aged 52, from inflammation of the lungs and is buried at East Perth cemeteries.
* Frederick was then aged 6.

Ann McKinnon (nee Elliott) next married on 29 Aug 1875, to Thomas Hansbury (1840-1879), an expiree who had arrived as a convict on the 'Racehorse' in 1865, the same ship on which 1st husband John was a pensioner guard.
Four years later, on 2 June 1879, Thomas fell off a train whilst drunk at the Jarrahdale Timber Company's plant at Rockingham.
. . The Herald (Fremantle), 14 June 1879
ON Monday, 2nd instant, a man named Thomas Hansbury, fell from a truck on the Jarrahdale railway. The wheels went over his right arm fracturing it in many places and causing such severe injury that on his removal to Fremantle it was found necessary to amputate the arm at shoulder joint. On Tuesday morning, Dr Barnett performed this operation, and the case seemed to promise favourably, but subsequently the man succumbed and died on Wednesday 4th instant.
. . The Herald, 21 June 1879 To the Editor of the Herald. Dear Sir, I think it only just to the manager of the Jarrahdale's Timber plant at Rockingham, that you should be set right in your remarks upon the deaths of the two unfortunate men - Pearson and Hansbury, at the same time I am sure you are anxious that justice should be done to everyone, and as I was one of the jury in the case of Pearson you will accept mine as a more reliable version of the case and I trust find space for it in your next issue for the above mentioned reason. The unfortunate man Hansbury, I believe there is not the least question was quite drunk at the time he met with the accident, which ended in his death, but Pearson was quite sober and refused to take anything, a few minutes before he was killed. The stoppage of the train was merely to put down some people who did not go any further in that direction .. Yours &c., Geo. E. Knight, Woongong, 15th June 1879.
. . Police Gazette, Western Australia, 4 June 1879 On the 4th inst., at Fremantle Prison, before J. G. Slade, R.M. and Coroner, on the body of Thomas Hansbury, exp., late 8298, who died at the Prison Hospital, on the 4th inst. Verdict - "Death from the result of an Accident"
* Frederick was then aged 7.

Ann Hansbury, formerly McKinnon (nee Elliott) next married John 'Jack' Hughes (1824-1924) on 15 Dec 1879 (5 months after his arrival in WA).
. . John was born 14 Feb 1824. He said he was a Crimean War veteran, but thanks to all these war veteran researchers, it appears that may have been a tall tale. Maybe he just wanted to live up to the image of Ann's first two husbands.
Card: HUGHES, John Thomas, son of Robert (blacksmith). Arrived 17.7.1879 per Cupid from England. Married 15.12.1879 (Perth C/E) Ann Hansbury, widow of Thomas, daughter of Peter Elliott. Child John b. 1880. Applied for 50 acres Cockburn district as an immigrant grant. Blacksmith, Jarrahdale . note . If they did have a son in 1880 Ann would have been about 54. He was registered in their name but he may also have been a son of another like Frederick McKinnon Hawkins was (will change if verified).
* Frederick was then aged 7.

. . ANN HUGHES died 28 July 1915 in Jarrahdale
West Australian, 28 July 1915
- On July 24, 1915, at Jarrahdale, Ann, the beloved wife of John Hughes, in her 90th year. Deeply regretted. Inserted by her friend, A. M. Woodland (Anna Maria Woodland, nee Nelson 1865-1950, whose husband, Edwin Portman 'Jim' Woodland was an engine driver for Millars' Timber & Trading Co., at Jarrahdale)

. . JOHN HUGHES died at the Old Men's Home in Claremont on 28 Jan 1924 aged 2 weeks from 100 and is buried at Karrakatta.
Death Of A Crimean Veteran - Private John Hughes, a Crimean and Indian Mutiny veteran, who on February 14 next would have reached his 100th birthday, passed away peacefully at the Old Men's Home, Claremont, yesterday and to-day his remains will be accorded a military funeral. The cortege will leave Donald Chipper and Son's private mortuary at 2 o'clock and the interment will take place at the Karrakatta Cemetery at 3 o'clock. On the death being reported to the Military Commandant by the master of the Home, Major Raper issued instructions for the deceased to be accorded full military honours. The body will be carried on a gun-carriage and there will be a firing party at the grave-side, the arrangements being in the hands of Major Bilton.
The deceased was born in North Wales on February 14 1824. He was a British soldier for 18 years and was twice wounded. He left the army with a clean discharge and for the past 50(sic) years had been resident in Western Australia, much of the time at Jarrahdale, where he worked as a blacksmith. He entered the Old Men's Home on October 17 and was a bright and cheery old man, despite his advanced years. He was given a free pass over the railways some time ago. Had he lived to celebrate his 100th, birthday arrangements had been made by Mr D. N. Martin, of White City, to give him a birthday party, but now the 100lb cake already made will be given to celebrate the birthdays of two other Crimea and Indian Mutiny veterans in the Home - Private Edwin Willcocks (94) and Private J. V. M. Helier (90).
* Edwin Wilcocks died 6 months after John, aged 94.
* Vincent John Helier died a year to the day after John, aged 91.
Their stories of serving in the Crimean war also appear to be 'tall tales'. The three are buried together in gravesite 170, section JA, Anglican area at Karrakatta

FREDERICK McKINNON HAWKINS married BRIDGET HARPER (1866-1921). Bridget was born in Bristol, England, a daughter of Michael Harper (1835-1902 born County Kilkenny, died Bristol) & Mary Butler (1840-1923 born Clonel, County Tipperary, died Bristol). Bridget arrived in Fremantle around 1887, still researching which ship.

Bailiff Assaulted
Albert Hawkins and Nora Hawkins were each fined £l, with 6/0 costs, on a charge of having unlawfully assaulted James Winter Cruthers, bailiff of the Fremantle Local Court, at 55 Samson-street, Beaconsfield, on October 23. Cruthers said that he had gone to the premises with a warrant of execution and had been pushed out of the house. The accused said that they had understood that Cruthers had come with a warrant for John Hawkins, who was not present and had denied him access to the house. A similar charge against Daniel Hawkins was dismissed.

Daily News, 5 July 1940 Woman Assaults Her Brother-In-Law. An echo of a family feud over the custody of a 16-year-old boy was mentioned in the Fremantle Police Court today when Mrs Nora Hawkins was charged with having assaulted her brother-in-law, Herbert Hawkins. Mrs Hawkins, who pleaded guilty, was cautioned and ordered to pay £3/2/ costs. Counsel for Hawkins said that his boy was living with defendant and action for his return brought before the Children's Court, Supreme Court and Full Court had failed. Recently the boy had his leg fractured in an accident and asked for his father. When Hawkins went to the hospital Mrs Hawkins endeavoured to prevent a reconciliation between the boy and the father. As Hawkins was leaving the hospital Mrs Hawkins threatened him and smacked his face.
Proceedings had been taken to show Mrs Hawkins that the father could visit his son in hospital, said counsel. According to opposing counsel, Hawkins sneered at his sister-in-law at the hospital and it was only a technical assault of a trivial nature.
NOTE At this time Nora & Jack had custody of his brother Herb's son, John Robert Hawkins. Two months previously Herb had taken him to court telling the magistrate that he was an uncontrollable child.

Daily News, 1 May 1950
