The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate (NSW : 1882 - 1950) Sat 2 Dec 1944

MR. F. TOWNSHEND.
The death occurred at Mosman on Sunday last of Mr. Frank Townshend, for many years proprietor of the "Walcha Witness." Mr. Townshend was born at Uckfield, Sussex, England, on January 16th, 1863. He started work at Unwin Bros., Chilworth, later going to Capetown, where he joined the staff of the "Cape Argus." From there he went to New Zealand , doing newspaper work in Christchurch and Dunedin, then later in Sydney and Newcastle. In 1889 he started the "Witness" in Walcha, and later the "Gloucester Advocate." He was one of the pioneers of the Country Press Association and for over 30 years correspondent for the "S. M. Herald." The funeral service was conducted by Rev. J. Waugh, of Neutral Bay Presbyterian Church, assisted by the Rev. W. A. Thompson, of Bexley. Mr. and Mrs. Townshend celebrated their golden wedding on 3rd August, 1943. Mr. Townshend is survived by his widow, six children, thirteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Thanks gibbo.

Didn't have that one.

I must have missed putting something in my tree because Cape Town rings a bell.

Sarah and some children must have died in Cape Town.

I've found a few bits I didn't have - 2nd marriage for W W, his death and probate.

The family must have gone to South Africa between 1881 and 1891.

So Frank would have arrived in Vic. or NSW from NZ by 1889.

Can't see arrival in NSW on Mariners or in Vic. on PROV.

I'd better try again assuming 1871- 1875 is not a broad enough range for Maud.

An error with father as John Edward?

Birth GATES MAUD ELIZABETH 17830/1875 JOHN THOMAS - ELIZABETH - PATRICKS PLAIN

It's not 1 Jan.

Can't see another marriage in NSW for a Maud E GATES. So two errors - birth date and father on death reg or wrong one. ??

GATES John Thomas Death notice 26APR1938 Death 82 late of Bexley Sydney Morning Herald 27APR1938

Not the right one
GATES-April 26 1938 at the residence of his
son Mr J T Gates, John Thomas beloved hus
bpnd of Mary Ann Gates and loving father of Alice
May (Mrs T Plumer) and John Thomas in his
83rd year

Patricks Plain is in the Hunter around Singleton.

No death for an Elizabeth GATES in that area.

Why also Rev. W. A. Thompson, of Bexley. ???

Deaths in that area - only one
GATES ELIZABETH TEMPERANCE 27393/1948 GEORGE ELIZABETH ANN - ROCKDALE

GATES Elizabeth Temperance Death notice 22OCT1948 Death 80 late of Carlton Sydney Morning Herald 23OCT1948

Wrong one
GATES Elizabeth Temperance -Octo
ber 22 1948 at her residence 43 Fleet
Street Carlton dearly los ed wife of
the late Arthur Henry Gates and loving
mother of George (deceased) Frank
(deceased) norrie (Mrs H A
Macready) and Elsie (Mrs G Leslie,

Lots of deaths in NSW for a John Gates with no middle name.

The trees I've found have no deaths for John and Elizabeth.
