1884-1894 N.S.W Sands Directory
STOWE Thomas, millwright, 42 Phillip st., Balmain

Cyclopedia of New South Wales
A prominent Architect and Consulting
Engineer in the metropolis
of New South Wales, and well
known in the various centres of the
colony, is MR. FRANCIS ERNEST
STOWE, son of the late Thomas
Stowe, millwright and engineer, of
London. Born on March 17th,
1867, educated, first, in the '' little
village,'' and latterly in this colony
young Stowe went through a severe
course of practical training, embracing
engineering, building construction,
and office work, for a
period of twelve years before he
initiated the practice of his profession
amidst the historic scenes of
Parramatta in the year 1891. Since
that time his professional career can
be tersely described as one of substantial
and speedy progress. The
value of the ancient borough as a
commercial centre to the up-to-date
' professional man is in inverse ratio
to the interest it attracts on sentimental
grounds ; and it was not
long before Mr. Stowe recognised
the necessity of putting in his pegs
in a more lucrative field, where his
skill would receive wider recognition.
Accordingly, when the suited moment
arrived he came to Sydney,
where he soon gathered around him
in King Street, a sound connection.
For the past sixteen years he has
instructed classes on engineering at
the Sydney Technical College ; and,
latterly, the architectural department
of this important and beneficial
institution has been under his
control. He is the present principal
of the Sydney Marine Engineers'
College, from which, under his
tuition, since 1902 candidates to
the number of 128 have been successful
in obtaining Board of Trade
certificates; and the 'l counterbalance
scheme," adopted by the
Government and used at Darling
Street, Balmain, affords a good
instance of his inventive genius.
In January, 1894, Mr. Stowe was
married to Miss Margaret I/yon.
Outside his profession, he devotes
himself mainly to military matters,
holding a commission as lieutenant
in the Parramatta squadron of the
New South Wales Lancers. Rising
at the outset from the ranks to an
officer in the lancer cadets, he was
eventually promoted so a second
lieutenantship in his present corps
and then to the rank of first lieutenant.

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. I didn't think you would find much on Thomas. ;)

That shipping record is way off. Emma was born in Leiston, Suffolk, George Thomas in Kensington, Middlesex, and most of the children including Francis Ernest in Ireland: b. 17 Mar 1867 , Sligo, Ireland Vol. 7 p. 381.

For the last three years I thought George Thomas was the youngest. :2fun: Until last week when I found three more born after the family arrived in NSW. :rolleyes:

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. I expected to see Brian Askham in 1943 E/R because his parents married in 1920. Perhaps he is not the eldest and I could be missing some children. His sister Shirley was born in 1928.

Hi Dave

John Robert the Musician is in NSW 1930 & 1933, Lilian Lydia is on her own between 1919-1949 in VIC.
The only death I can see for John in NSW is 1947. So where is he in 1936 & 1943.??
