HAMILTON family

George Stimson who married Elizabeth in 1883 is brother of Arthur who married Elizabeth’s sister Sarah’s daughter (ie technically her niece – but was raised as a sister by Elizabeth’s parents)

George b 30 May 1857 Parramatta to William Stimson & Eliza Pammenter – died 8 Dec 1926 Canley Vale

Arthur b 16 Sept 1859 Parramatta to above parents and died 21 Nov 1935 62 Harrow Rd Auburn NSW

Cumberland Argus & Fruitgrowers Thur 28 Nov 1935
Late Arthur Stimson
The death occurred at his residence, 62 Harrow-road, Auburn, last Thursday, of Mr. Arthur Stimson, a well-known identity in both Auburn and Fairield, at the age of 76. Born in Fairfield, he was the son of William Stimson, who came to the country in the early days and pioneered grape-growing in Fairfield and Canley Vale; and also acquired orchards and property in Guildford. Mr. Stimson, who was a prominent figure in the Church of Christ, Auburn, was of a kind and generous disposition, and was admired and respect by his many friends. The death of his wife occurred in November, last year, almost on the same day as that of the deceased. Mr. Stimson is survived by three sons, Syd, Eric and Stan, and five daughters,May (Mrs. Horner, of Mascot), Olive (Mrs. Morgan), Ivy, Dulcie, and Edna. A son, Percy, predeceased him..A very large funeral left for the Methodist Cemetery, Rookwood, last Saturday, Rev. Johnston officiating. His son-in-law, Rev. S. Horner, also took part in the service.

Thanks Val.

I had Arthur's death and funeral notices but not the obit.

Ok, thanks Geoff.

... Mr. Stimson is survived by three sons, Syd, Eric and Stan, and five daughters, ... A son, Percy, predeceased him. ...

That adds to 9 but for some reason I have a possible 10th.

Betty/ Elizabeth Marjorie ? Mrs Hardaker ??

On Saturday, 22nd November, 1845, in

An error in the NSW BMD with Elizabeth listed twice in the index but Hannah missing from the index and one burial for each on film.


I can't see a Hardaker marriage to an Elizabeth or Betty in NSW. No death in NSW to 1986 and not in Ryerson.

Arthur & Sarah F or Florence nee Hamilton children as mentioned in Lily May Horner death notice..

Sydney A – 1893 Granville - dec
Walter Eric – 1896 Smithfield - dec - twin of Percy ?
Olive I - 1899 Parramatta - married Morgan

Dulcie V – 1903 Parramatta – married Hynes
Ivy M – 1889 Central Cumberland - dec
Edna G – 1905 Granville – married Hall

Percy Lyle Stimson died 4 Feb 1927 age 31 = b 1896 but not on BMD – we have Walter Eric b 1896 so Twins…
 
Not twins. Just another error, Val.

Birth 26925/1894 STINSON [sic] PERCY L ARTHUR FLORENCE PARRAMATTA * 13 Sep 1894


There is a topic here re Hardaker/Hardacre but no solution.

The curious thing is that none of the other death notices mention Betty.

So, a sister-in-law but listed as a sister? Therefore on Horner side ?? Still can't find a marriage.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Mon 27 Nov 1950 p.14
DEATHS
HORNER, Rev. Sydney Samuel Walter, M.M.-November 26, 1950, late 1st A.I.F., Congregational Minister, at Royal South Sydney Hospital, dearly beloved husband of May Horner, and father of Betty, of 1 Mary Street, Mascot, aged 62 years.

A daughter.

The one at the top of the page is in the index.
