Yes gibbo but there was no entry I could find in 1912 or 1913 on the fiche at the library today.

So did he fib? Was he born in another state? Reg missing from NSW index? Dunno. :rolleyes:

Don't know. :) He is a clergyman, the son of a clergyman :D

I did only look under PITT-OWEN. I didn't look under OWEN.


The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 1 March 1947 p.
MARRIAGES
PITT-OWEN - CLEWETT.-January 11, at St. David's Church, Arncliffe, by the Rev. R. H. Pitt-Owen, Anita Millicent, third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Clewett, of Highfields, Normanhurst, to Albert Thomas, younger son of Rev. and Mrs. R. H. Pitt-Owen, of St. David's Rectory, Arncliffe.

This must be the marriage:

9595/1909 OWEN REGINALD H P - BARKER EDITH M - WAVERLEY

The reg for Albert is possibly under OWEN and 1913.


I got the obit today:

PITT-OWEN Albert Obituary 13JUN1997 Death 84 late of Picton, formerly of Hornsby Daily Telegraph (Sydney) 08JUL1997

Yes, the two reg # for 2x Albert. :)

I suppose we could try you know who. But we'd have to ask for PITT and OWEN and PITT-OWEN. :biggrin:

Or wait for someone with a sub to one or other site.

Hi, I'm David, the son of Albert Pitt-Owen. I noticed through a Google search that you're seeking information on my father.

I'm curious to know why and whether I can help in any way with the information needed. He was indeed born at Hornsby, a suburb of Sydney, at my great grandparents home on the 20th December 1912. He is he son of the Reverend Reginald Herbert Pitt Owen and Edith Mary Barker, married at Saint Matthew's Bondi in 1909.

My father Albert was married to Anita Millicent Clewett in 1947. Her brother in law was Albert Tulloch, who was married to my Aunt Rosalind Clewett.

Cheers, David

Hello David and welcome to the Forum


Many thanks for the details. I was filling a branch of my tree. This is the connection:

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 5 June 1943 p.16
MARRIAGES
CLEWETT - WALKER.- May 25, 1943, at St. Thomas' Church, North Sydney, by Canon H. N. Baker, Beth, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Sidney Walker of North Sydney, to Lieut. George V. F. Clewettt, (A.I.F.) only son of Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Clewett, of Highfields, Normanhurst.


Beth's mother and my grandmother were sisters.

Hi Dave,

I guess that you know Aunty Beth is still alive and living outside Toowoomba. She's not well, and according to my sister, is thinking of going into care.

In the 1950's, while on holidays in the Blue Mountains, she and Uncle George gave my parents two etchings by Sidney Walker, Aunty Berth's father. They have since been passed on to me and I have them hanging in my Livingroom. He was quite an accomplished artist, and I think, well known at the time.

From memory the family worshipped at Saint Thomas' North Sydney, and for some reason I have always thought Mr Walker was a Rector's Warden there.

Cheers, David

Hi David,

Yes, the family had a reunion in Toowoomba May last year.

Great Aunt Marjory passed away last month in Toowoomba. She had so much of the family history in her head. A photo taken in North Sydney in late 1930s and she could reel off all 15 names. Amazing. It's a photo I don't have a copy of yet.


Art Gallery of NSW has 4 of his works:
F Sidney Walker (Australia, b.1888, d.1972)
Dawes Point from McMahon's Point 1925 Intaglio etching with drypoint 12.0 x 19.4 Purchased 1975 239.1975
Haystacks 1927 Intaglio drypoint 12.6 x 17.6 Gift of Miss Marjory Walker 1975 240.1975
The Bridge, South Abutment May 1929 Intaglio etching with drypoint 15.0 x 21.4 Gift of Miss Marjory Walker 1975 241.1975
Murrumbidgee Intaglio etching 16.4 x 24.3 Gift of Miss Marjory Walker 1975 242.1975

I have nothing yet that mentions any connection the Walker family might have had with St. Thomas' North Sydney.


Have to take care posting details of living individuals.

Dave
