This is an odd one gibbo.

No, that's a different one I didn't know about.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 8 September 1987 p.31
DEATHS
STORRIER, Barbara Ellen, September 7, 1987, at Bathurst Nursing Home, Kelso, beloved mother and mother-in-law of Michael and Catherine, loved grandmother of Tony, Andrew, Chris, Greg, Beverley and Sandra, loved great-grandmother of Nathan, aged 73 years. In God's care.

It's possible Barbara was born in Qld. in 1915 or 1916 just after the close of current index. Also possible LEANE is not her maiden name. If she married in NSW then it was after close of current index 1963 which would be odd because Leslie died in 1964.

If she is the mother not step-mother of Michael then ... Perhaps they didn't marry. To be a great-grandmother or a great grand step-mother then Michael was born abt ???

Leslie's first wife died 28 Dec 1951 but she was not listed in E/R as living with Leslie apart from 1913. Not 1930 onwards. No sign of a divorce probably no divorce because both were buried as RC.

Yes, we've looked at this before. :rolleyes:

Barbara was Leslie's landlady. You suggested they did a deal. She forced him into bankruptcy.

OH i remember now :2fun::2fun: He went bankrupt, she made a claim and they lived happily ever after :biggrin:
Thats just my theory of course :2fun::2fun:

4x LEANE marriage in Qld. 1900 - 1914 so likely born after close of index 1914.

Can't find any birth notice 1915 - 1917.

One tree for Barbara has her name as Barbara Ellen HEWITT and death in 1988. Father Charles HEWITT and mother Annie. And a death for Leslie in 1961 not 1964.

Very curious. There are lots of trees that have 1890-1923 for Leslie and only a few that have 1890-1964.

We know from the court proveedings that Barbara was from Queensland and that she was the landlady in Lane Cove in 1939.

So we must have 2x Barbara Ellen LEANEs. :rolleyes:
