Hello crankypants,

Thanks.

Enlisted Paddington, NSW 3 Apr 1942 - S/N N391150 CORPS HQ V D C - NOK Beck Elsie living at Annandale, NSW - Discharged 12 Mar 1945

Perhaps Elsie was living with relatives or perhaps the name is in error again in the index.

Elsie Irene 1943 Dalley

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave & Cranky Pants,
That means that Henrietta Ruth was 99 years old when she died! We will find a centenarian yet!
Cheers,
Beckie.

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much.

William T BECK b. 1899 Waverley married ? d. ?
- parents William Hubert & Jane Philomena Eva (nee ANDREWS)


The following William Thomas is possibly a different person because of this marriage:

2634/1878 BUNDOCK JAMES BECK MATILDA BOOROWA

Matilda does not fit in our tree and if she is related to the William Thomas who married Linda then all we have for our William T is a birth in 1899 Waverley.


The following couple are in Lane Cove, but the E/R is of use only if we can prove they fit in our tree. :D

William Thomas BECK b. ? (parents ?) d. 1983 Linley Point

BECK William Thomas Death notice 20SEP1983 Death late of Linley Point SMH 24SEP1983

I've sent a look up request to Ryerson and I hope someone has it already indexed and that the notice has some siblings or whatever to solve this.

There is this birth and he does not fit in our tree with those parents, but he seems a bit old to marry in 1920:

27631/1881 BECK WILLIAM THOMAS - RICHARD ANNIE TUMUT

married 1920 Sydney

Linda Agnes de Weltz BUNDOCK b. ? d. 1979 Linley Point


Please see what you can find. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Hugh Morwick BECK died in 1967 but I can't see him in the 1954 E/R.
He is in North Sydney in 1949 by the index. Lynda died in 1973.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave and Beckie

For someone so prominent I haven't found anything that mentions a birthplace. Think I've googled him off the interenet.:eek:
Checked the U.K papers as I saw a NLA Catalogue mentioning - "Griffiths was chairman of the Central Town Planning Advisory Board and a member of the Town Planning Association in London and the World Town Planning Institute."


The Sydney Morning Herald... Thursday 4 April 1929, page 9. Advertising 5084 words.
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. - Probate Jurisdiction - In the Will of WALTER SCOTT GRIFFITHS late of Brighton in the State of South Australia Town Planner deceased -Application will be made after fourteen days from the publication hereof that Probate of the last Will of the abovenamed deceased may be granted to EMMA FLORENCE GRIFFITHS the Executrix named in the said Will and all notices may be served at her ad ress which is as under- Mrs. E. F. GRIFFITHS Mildrest No 25 Highland avenue, Gordon N, S.W. All persons having claims against the Estate should forward same to the said Executrix.

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much for looking. I suspect he was born in Wales ???

I've seen the name as Walter S. / W. Scott and as W. SCOTT-GRIFFITHS

I've had no luck yet. Should I try NZ :2fun:

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I wonder if you have access to this one. I hope so. :)

An obituary of a town planner, W. Scott-Griffiths, is in the Observer,
23 March 1929, page 20d.


I know this is way out of Fenway Park:

Marriages Dec 1859
Griffiths John Newport M 11a 245 ***
Morgan Maria Newport M 11a 245
Sainsbury James Newport M 11a 245
Scott Temperance Newport M 11a 245 ***

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks. That's Beckie's side of the family. I'm on the other side. :cool: We split at Robert & William born about 1819 in Surrey.

Did you find Philip Hubert & Eadith? Post # 93 but there is a problem I think re an earlier post that is connected to this marriage.

Marriage # 6199/1918 BECK PHILIP H BUNDOCK EDITH E WAVERLEY


EDIT: To be read in conjunction ( :D) with post # 87. There are three BECK /BUNDOCK marriages ( that I know of so far). One, Philip Hubert belongs in our tree. One, Matilda does not belong in our tree. The one for William T may or may not although there is a William T a brother of Philip Hubert.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Brothers in our tree:

Philip Hubert b. 1897 m. 1918 a BUNDOCK

William T b. 1899 m. 1920 possibly to a BUNDOCK

Matilda BECK (not in our tree) married a BUNDOCK

Seems unlikely. There are TWO William T - one not related and much older.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Now if we had them at the same address ... probably not likely to be that lucky.

The Argus Melbourne Monday 19 June 1939
BULLET HITS WALL AND FALLS ON WOMAN
Sydney, Sunday
Crashing through the window of a bedroom at the home of Mr. William T. Beck at Lane Cove at 1.40 am today, a bullet struck a wall over a doorway, and richochetted towards a bed where Mrs. Linda Beck was lying. The bullet which was almost spent fell in her hair and bruised her head. Mr. Beck was in another room at the time. He believes that had he entered the bedroom 10 seconds before he did the bullet would have struck him. Police searched the locality, but could not ascertain who fired the shot.


Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Please send the E/R for William Thomas & Linda Agnes and I hope we find something later to prove it should be added to our tree. Thanks.

No reply from Ryerson look up request re the death notice for William Thomas. When I get to see that notice some time in the future I hope it provides the proof as to which William T married Linda.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Well now :D It's looking more likely because I think the BUNDOCKs are sisters.

Dave
