Thanks Val.

I had about a quarter of that so now I'm confused.

Charles married JONES but his middle name is Jones. :rolleyes:

A divorce ? An inquest ?

2x Charles.

Death 15387/1908 WEEKES CHARLES J - CHARLES W - SARAH - ST LEONARDS

The Sydney Morning Herald - Mon 16 Nov 1908 p.6
DEATHS
WEEKES.-November 15, 1908, at his residence Collondilly, Hampden-road, Pennant Hills, Charles Jones Weekes, M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P., London, aged 46.


That also does not make sense. Hampton road is in Artarmon the suburb next to St Leonards.

Charles Jones Weekes, M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P., London, aged 46. a Doctor ??

off wiki..The conjoint was a basic medical qualification in the United Kingdom administered by the United Examining Board. ... The surgeons then teamed up with the Royal College of Physicians of London who paired their Licentiate diploma (LRCP) with the MRCS to create the English Conjoint Diploma in 1884.

Thanks Geoff.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tue 25 Jun 1907 p.6
DEATHS
WALKER.-June 24, at Sandringham, near Melbourne, Ruth Anna, beloved wife of Joshua walker, of Melbourne, and mother of Frank Walker, Archer-street, Chatswood.


1928 NSW Sands Directory
Walker Frank J.P. 26 Albert ave, Chatswood

I don't know for sure but I think they only lived in 26 Albert. Archer street is a cross street two blocks away. Archer and Albert are no different as far as size or traffic volume so curious the notice says Archer.

I can solve the problem at the library as they have the valuation/rate notices on film.

This is 26 Albert

Valuation Roll 1914-1915
District: Willoughby Ward: Chatswood East
Albert Avenue South side from Orchard Road
Assessment No: 17
Name: Walker Frank Postal Address: Albert Avenue
Dimensions: Nature of Dwelling: BC Estate: Railway Junction
Frontage/Depth [Neridah st] 'Kooruida'
62' x 124' UIV: £200 IV: £825 AAV: £60

It's one and a half lots on the SE corner so larger than the usual block in that estate. House built in 1898 and no longer standing. My early family home.

They used house names back then. No house numbers on the 1914-15 valuation roll. Not all lots had cottages. BC = ... ? Cottage. Also you can tell if there is something on the land if the improved value is more then the unimproved value. AAV= Annual Assessed Value.

I'm in the process of collecting the valuation notices for all properties in my tree that fall in Willoughby Council area. Valuations not done every year. Most are on film with a few rate books missing for a few streets for a few years.

I'd better check Violet Johnson.


Sidney was an artist/etcher. The Art Gallery of NSW has four of his works but images are no longer available on the web site for some reason.
