Notes for Stephen Edward Tuckerman
Sudden Death of an Hawkesbury Native
Mr. Stephen Tuckerman, a very old identity of Mudgee, died very suddenly about half-past 8 o'clock on Tuesday morning. Deceased, who had a dairy farm at Lawson's Creek, near Mudgee, was driving in with milk to the Butter Factory, when he dropped out of his cart dead. Mr. Tuckerman haa been a resident of Mudgee for about 40 years. He was 64 years of age, and leaves a young wife and two children to mourn their loss. At the inquest the jury found that the ceased died from sanguineous apoplexy. Mr. Tuckerman was well-known by all old hands in this district, where so many of his family still reside.
Windsor and Richmond Gazette - Sept 1892.
It is with deep regret was expressed throughout the town on Tuesday morning, (says the "Mudgee Guardian") when it became known that S. E. Tuckerman had died suddenly. Mr. Tuckerman was one of the oldest identities, having been a prominent unit of the community upwards of thirty years. In public matters he had been a useful and earnest man, having been, an alderman of the borough, and in connection with elections was
always a ready and willing chairman at public meetings, whilst his burly form has on more than one occasion been seen on the hustings advocating the claims of our candidates, and always on the side of the people. None can say bad of " old Steve," as he was familiarly known. Up to the morning of his decease he had enjoyed moderate health, and was as light-hearted and cheery as ever when starting for the butter factory, The funeral on Wednesday was largely attended, and genuine mourning for a true and faithful brother by those who attended to pay their last tribute of respect to the one who had so suddenly been summoned to that bourne from whence none return. Peace to his ashes.

This morning he had his breakfast, as usual, and left the house at about 8 a.m., but he did not mention' as to where he was going. Witness last saw him down near the fowl shed; that was shortly after he had had his break fast. At lunch time, witness went down the paddock and called him, but got no reply. The next she knew was when Miss Hendren from the Ebenezer Post Office, came across and informed her that her brother had been found by Frank Booker down in the bush dead. The deceased was in receipt of the old age pension, and he owned the house in which they resided and was paying £ 3 per annum to the Government for the land on which the house was situated. His assets would be worth approximately £i50. He \ left a will, and possessed no other real or personal 'property. In reply to the Coroner, witness said the deceased's life was not insured. He was born in Queensland, 'but she could not tell you where . Francis John Booker, single, residing at I 29 Meehan-street, Granville, stated that he I had been staying with his .parents at the Swamps, Ebenezer, for 14 days prior to October 6. At about 12.15pm on this date he left his 'parents home riding a horse, and was making up through Mr. Norman Tucker- man's bush, to go to the: Ebenezer Post, Office for their mail, when he saw the body of a man fully dressed lying on the bush track, witness dismounted and saw that it was Mr. Norman Tuckerman. He felt his hand and it was quite cold. His dog was by his side. He could see that Mr. Tucker man was dead and immediately proceeded to Ebenezer Post Office, where he got in touch with the Windsor Police by telephone and informed them of what he had seen. (He then returned to where the body of de ceased was lying and remained there until the arrival of Dr. Arnold, Mr. Johnston, District Coroner, and Sergeant Dawes. He had known the deceased, Norman Tucker man, for the past 16 years. There was no person near the body when he first saw it and it would be approximately one mile distant 'from his home. John George Dawes, Sergeant of Police stationed at Windsor, stated that at 12.35 p.m. on Wednesday, October 6, he received a telephone message 'from Miss Hendren, Post mistress, Ebenezer, to the effect that Mr. Norman Tuckerman had been found dead, in the bush at the rear of his home, by a man named Frank Booker. The sergeant proceed ed to the scene and, in company with Mr. Johnston, District Coroner, and Dr. Arnold, Government Medical Officer, examined the body. Dr. Arnold pronounced life extinct. The body was conveyed to his late residence, and witness stripped the body and made a thorough examination. There were no marks of any description on the body. The deceased was under treatment by Dr. Bateman, Windsor, for his heart and asthma. He had been advised that liis heart was in a very weak state, and he must not exert himself in any shape or form. From inquiries made, continued the sergeant, I have ascertained that he usually knocked up after walking 50 yards, and at times almost collapsed. He had walked almost a mile from the house to where his body was found, and over a rough bush track. The deceased was fully clothed when found, lying partly on his right side with his face towards the ground. The surrounding loomy ground was examined, and I am quite satisfied that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death. '

Notes: A Successful Teacher. Miss Elizabeth A. Tuckerman, daughter of Mr A. Tuckerman, J.P., has achieved some distinction in the scholastic world. As the result of a recent examination of pupil teachers she has gained a ' full scholarship,' which will entitle her to enter the Hurlstone Training College. For the past four years Miss Tuckerman has been a pupil teacher at Richmond and Windsor, and will now receive 12 months education at the college free of charge. Only 15 scholarships were awarded, and for these 112 young ladies competed in December last. On leaving the college she will be eligible for an assistantship, with the prospects of a mistresship in a very short time. Miss Tuckerman is 22 years of age, and all her pupil teacher exams were passed with high marks. She studied under Mr. Broome, head master of the Windsor Superior Public-school. Naturally the school is proud of the distinction she has gained. We congratulate Miss Tuckerman on her brilliant pass, and hope that it is only the precursor of a successful and useful career as a teacher. Windsor and Richmond Gazette - Feb 1900

Notes for Cyril J Tuckerman
We referred briefly last week to the passing of one of the most respected identities of the Hawkesbury River-Cyril Joseph Tuckerman¿ which occurred at his late home at Ebenezer on the 20th June. He attained his 60th birthday in March. Born at the 'Forrest' homestead, Sackville he was the eldest of the eleven children of the late Prosper Tuckerman. All the brothers and sisters survive, and are: Stephen, (Sackville Reach), Norman (Ebenezer , James (Sackville), Walter (Wisemans Ferrv) Charlie (West Maitland), Will (Sackville), Mrs. Castles, Mrs. A. Turnbull, Mrs James Turnbull and Miss Clara Tuckerman. The late Cyril Tuckerman was married at Richmond on June 22nd, 1887, by the late Rev Dr. Wools, to Miss Emma Laura Turnbull, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Turnbull, now of Eastwood. His wife survives him with a family of seven, children; Arthur, Hilton (recently returned from the war), Leigh, Louis (on active service abroad), Dulcie, Keith and Fred. They resided for many years near deceased's birth place, and later removed to Ebenezer. Cyril took a leading part in public affairs, for many years, and was the friend and adviser of very many of the people he lived among. All were his friends he had no enemies, and his straight and upright life was acknowledged by those who knew him. He interested himself in every movement that was for the wealth of the district, and his wise counsel was always availed of in matters of public import. He had been a Justice of the Peace for many years, and at the inception of Local Government, in 1906, he was appointed by the Government as one of the temporary councillors of Colo Shire. As a churchman he had been associated with St. Thomas', Sackville, from his childhood, and was for 30 years a church warden, and later, removing to Ebenezer, filled a similar position at St. John's, Wilberforce, for several years right up to the time of his death. His religion was of the honest, wholesome sort. There was no hypocricy about Cyril Tuckerman, and he earned the respect of people of all creeds for the genuineness and the sincerity of his religious convictions. He will be missed in the community where he was a guide and friend for many years, and also outside the sphere of his own labors, where he had many honest admirers and sincere friends. The burial took place at St. Thomas', Sackville, on June 22, Mr. Chandler con ducting the funeral. There was a very large concourse of people at the funeral, many having travelled long distances to pay their respects to the memory of a good man. The coffin was carried from the hearse to the sacred edifice on the hill, and afterwards to the last resting place by four brothers Stephen, James, Walter and William. The church was filled to overflowing, and the solemn service was conducted by the rector of the parish, Rev. G. P. Birk, who paid a high tribute to the worth and work of the deceased churchman. He referred to the late Cyril Tuckerman's preparedness to meet his God if ever there was a man prepared for the end, it was he. The rev. gentleman spoke of deceased's life as a churchman, as a citizen, and as a husband and father. He said it was not his privilege to know their late respected friend very long, but those among whom he lived freely allowed that he was one of those genuine Christians who served the Master faithfully and well. Not only was he a church warden for 30 years at St. Thomas', and for some years at St. John's; but he was an honorary lay reader for many years. By example and precept he was a pattern for all to follow: He had the fitness and the courage to do the Master's work, and was truly reconciled to God. The late Cyril Tuckerman loved to follow in His blessed footsteps, and it was impossible to give too high a tribute of the grand example he set as a churchman. As a citizen he had not learned of any man more highly honored in the Hawkesbury district. He was a leader of men, and when the speaker came to the district a stranger recently, the late Mr. Tuckerman saw that he was introduced and officially recognised at a church function. In his home life around him was a family that the Hawkesbury was proud of. He allowed two of his sons to go and do their duty in the great war. As a husband and father all the people knew he was an exemplary man. His dear ones had sustained an irreparable loss, and the district had lost a man whose place could never be filled, but he was hopeful that the sons would become just as' good citizens., and that they would see that the grand name he left them was never tarnished. He respected the opinions of other men, but was not one to be led aside by the fanatical religion that was being promulgated in the district, largely by women. He was stead fast to his own religion, which was the religion of the King and the official religion of Britain. To his credit he was never swayed or led astray by a religion which possesses devilry or something else, brought here by people who are scouting about the land seeking to fasten their new-fangled religion on the people. There was reason and justification to speak thus, and not one word was lightly spoken. He concluded with a reference to the worthiness of their departed friend. Some,' they knew, were unworthy to be brought into that sacred place, but the one whose memory they were honoring had stood the test. He would be sorely missed, but his family could comfort their hearts with Christ's injunction not to be sorry as men without hope, for those who die in the Lord sleep in Him.

OBITUARY MRS. ELLA ANNIE TUCKERMAN
It is with regret that we chronicle the death of Mrs. Ella Annie Tuckerman, wife of Mr. James Ewing Tuckerman, of Ebenezer, which took place at the District Hospital, Windsor, on Wednesday morning at the age of 54 years. Born at Wilberforce, the deceased was a daughter of the late Benjamin Turnbull, one of the Hawkesbury's pioneer farmers. About 32 years ago she was married at Ebenezer to James Ewing Tuckerman, a member of another well-known and highly respected Hawkesbury family, who survives together with five sons and six daughters, viz., Reginald, Edna May, Alfreda Alice, Maycel Ewing, James Fleming, Frank Earl, Alva Annie, William Graham, Eva Adella, Win nie Emmaline 'and Hollis Bertie. Three of the sons are prominent Hawkesbury cricket ers, as also was their father in his younger days. The late Mrs. Tuckerman, who was be loved and respected by a wide circle of friends, had been in delicate health for some time past. She suffered from heart trouble, and had been a patient in the hospital for about a fortnight before her death. She had lived in the district all her life, was a good Christian woman, a loving wife and mother, and we extend sympathy to the husband and family in their bereavement. .' As we go to press (Thursday afternoon) the remains 'are being laid to rest in the historic Presbyterian cemetery at Ebenezer.

Notes for Mary Louise Johnston
As briefly announced in our last issue, there passed to her rest on October 9 a very old and respected resident of Sackville Reach in Mrs. Mary Louisa Tuckerman, at the ad vanced age of 82 years, the sad event taking place at the home of her daughter, Mrs. A. V. Brown, of Sackville.
Deceased was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Johnston, of Pitt Town, but lived the greater portion of her long and useful life at Sackville Reach, where her gentle disposition, kindly good nature and helpfulness to those in trouble earn ed her a widespread affection. A consistent supporter in her younger days of all charitable movements in her community, she was also a faithful worker for the Church of England for many years, and retained this interest until her passing terminated a prolonged and trying illness, courageously borne. Since the death of her late hus band, some 13 years ago, deceased had been residing in turn with her four daughters, by whom she was devotedly attended during her illness. In addition to three brothers, Sidney (Windsor), Ebenezer (Lower Port land) and Charles (Wilberforce road), she is survived by one son, Alma (Sackville Reach) and her daughters, Jessie (Mrs. H. A. Brown, Ebenezer), Ida (Mrs. H. King, Eben ezer), Ada (Mrs. A. V. Brown, Sack ville) and Hannah (Mrs. G. B. Brown, West Portland-road), and to the family the sympathy of a host of district friends is extended in their loss. After . a service, the remains were laid to rest in the Church of Eng land cemetery, Sackville Reach, on October 10, 'the Rev. H: H. Davison (Wilberforce) officiating. The funeral arrangements were conducted by Mr. Chandler, Windsor.

Notes: SACKVILLE BRIDE HANNAH TUCKERMAN WEDS GREAT CROWD WITNESSES CEREMONY HISTORIC St. Matthew's Church of Eng land, Windsor, was the scene of unusual animation on Saturday afternoon last, and seldom has there been such an immense gathering in the sacred old building or so much happy excitement over a wedding. All roads from 'down the river' centres led to Windsor, and it is officially estimated that .the church was filled with between 350 and 400 people. As one saw that great gathering absorbed in the event of the afternoon, the pregnant words of the immortal bart "The Tempest' came spontaneously to the mind ¿ Give me your hands: Let grief and sorrow still embrace his heart That doth not wish you joy! Everyone was in a happy mood, and ev eryone was rejoicing, for it was the wed ding day of two popular members of well known Hawkesbury pioneer families. We refer to Miss Hannah Tuckerman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Tuckerman, of 'Sack ville Reach, and Mr. Gabriel Bradley Brown., son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Brown, who each to the other said 'I will' in answer to the, officiating minister's sacred charge. Church register included a marriage celebrated in iSt. Matthew's, Windsor, and also one in which the fine old scriptural names of the bride and bridegroom were the same as theirs that day. Thus history repeated itself in the happiest manner. Whether any share of 'the millions' came their way or not, there were treasures more precious than silver and gold. ; They felt that the best 'traditions of the' Golden Hawkesbury were represented in the union solemnised that day. Amid such happily historipal associations, he wished the bride and bride groom abundant health and happiness. The Rev. 'S. Howard also proposed the kindest greetings from all present to foe sent to Miss Amy Bradley, the aged aunt of the bridegroom, who was unable to be present. This was agreed to with hearty acclamation. The bridegroom briefly responded, after which the health of the bridesmaids was proposed by Mr. Brangwin, and acknow ledged by Mr. Marshall Brown. Mr. F. Boo ker proposed the health of the brides' parents, and Mr. S. A. Tuckerman responded. After the cake had been cut, Revs. N. Jenkyn and J. F. Cherry, and a number of others present, added congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. Brown, whose future home will be at Sackville Reach, were the recipients of numerous presents, including cutlery, silverware, crockery and cheques.

Notes for Leopold E Tuckerman
BARCALDINE, June 12 1903
Further particulars of the tragedy at Blairgowrie show that the murder was the result of religious mania. On Sunday Mr Tuckerman was perfectly saneand transacting business with a man named Cudmore. .On Sunday night to became despondent, and on Monday broke out into violent mania, saying he was King Solomon, and had to offer human sacrifices ; that his wife (Fanny) was an unbeliever, and would have to die. Mrs Tuckerman had no fear, saying she could manage him!
At 10 o'clock on Tuesday .night-a man named Bellamy, who was in the
kitchen, heard Tuckerman say, "I am going to kill you, Fanny, much as I love you, or you won't go to Heaven,"
Mrs Tuckerman ran out and Bell amy went to intercept Tuckerman. They struggled until near the .gate, when Bellamy, rendered, semi-uncon sciousby blows, saw Tuckerman pick up a stick and strike his wife one blow on the head.
Tuckerman then went raving into the housc. While Bellamy noticed Tuckerman he was about a hundred yards in the bush. Tuckerman when going into the house said he was going for a razor to finish Bellamy, and the supposition is that on returning and finding Bell amy gone he went into the bush seeking him.
Tuckerman now boasts of having killed his wife, and regrets not having murdered his three, daughters. - He gave some trouble, coming to Barcal dine in the train; but he is now calm, with occasional second recognition for old friends.
The funeral of Mrs Tuckerman this morning was very largely attended.
The North Queensland Register, June 1903.
BARCALDINE, June 11.
Further details of the murder ol Mrs
Tuckerman show that Tuckerman, who since the accident to his head three years ago, has had periodical halluci nations, thinking people were prowl-, in about to attack him. .
He got into holds with a man named Bellamy, who eventually escaped.
Mrs Tuckerman, who had great power over Mr Tuckerman during his attacks, advanced towards him, at tempting to soothe him, when Tucker man, thinking Bellamy was again at tacking him, picked up a heavy rail and struck her, killing her apparently instantly. Bellamy immediately gave the alarm to two blacks, who were shepherding three miles away, who informed two station owners.Bellamy and another man afterwards met the blacks at Blairgowrie, and they tracked Tuckerman eight miles, finding him on Rosedale run, mad and quite nude. He said he knew what they wanted he" had killed a man.
The madman was secured by the four men with difficulty.
It is now known Tuckerman several times fancied men were prowling around, and only recently woke his wife, telling her he heard prowlers, and getting down the gun he travelled all over, the place. He subsequently told a visitor he was the man who prowled round, and getting. his gun ordered him to get Into his buggy .and leave immediately. The man did so, and Tuckerman said he believed he would-have shot him had he not com plied.

Notes for Rodney William Samuel Tuckerman
Husband Claims £5000.
A noticeable feature of the attendance at the Divorce Court durng the hearing of the Tuckerman suit, which entered on its third day yesterday, is the fact that the whole of the seating accommodation provided for the witnesses and the public in the body of the court is occupied each day by well-dressed young women, who sit out the day listening to the evidence. A long queue forms outside the court at the midday adjournment, just as at a picture theatre, and the people wait there patiently till the court reopens a little
before 2 p.m.
Rodney William Samuel Tuckerman, bank clerk, is petitioning for a divorce from Eliza- beth Bryda Lurline Tuckerman (formerly Whit- man) on the ground of her adultery with Herbert Alexander William Wallace Hogg, bank manager, from whom petitioner is claiming £5000 damages. The wife denied the miscon- duct, and charged her husband with cruelty, and with adultery with Claire Henkes, who denied the adultery and intervened to defend the suit. The co-respondent also denied the misconduct. The case is being heard before Mr. Justice Owen and a jury.
Leo Clive Miller, an officer of the Bank of New South Wales, said he had made, a state- ment about the case which was read in court. In that he had said that he knew Mr. Tucker- man to be most kind, courteous, and con siderate towards his wife. In fact he spoiled her. He also said he believed the allegations made by Mrs. Tuckerman against her husband to be grossly untrue and unfair.
Cross-examined by Mr. Windeyer, K.C., wit- ness said that Mr. Hogg had told him he loved Mrs Tuckerman too much to give her up Mr. Tuckerman told him on one occasion that he had kicked the co-respondent out of his house.
In answer to Mr. Boyce, K.C., witness said Mr. Tuckerman kissed his sisters and "all the
Emily Martha Dan, living with her parents at Bellevue Hill, said she had known the parties in the case for about two years. She had often gone for week-end motor drives with Mr. and Mrs. Tuckerman and Mr. Hogg. Mrs. Tuckerman usually sat in front with Mr. Hogg. "When they got to know me well," added witness, "they used to kiss one another in front of me."
Witness said she had never seen Mrs. Tucker- man kiss Mr. Hogg in her husband's presence. Mrs. Tuckerman often spoke to witness about the co-respondent. On one occasion she said she was thinking of eloping with him, and added that she would not think twice about going abroad with "Bert," if it were not for her son, Warwick.
"Mrs. Tuckerman showed me some poetry which she said Mr. Hogg had written to her," said witness. "It was about herself, her eyes, and her hair, and how he loved her,"
Witness said Mrs. Tuckerman told her that if on any Wednesday evening Mr. Tuckerman were to telephone witness's home, she was to say that Mrs Tuckerman was playing bridge there. Mrs. Tuckerman, said witness, told her she went out with Mr. Hogg on certain nights.
The suit is part heard.
August 1931 Sydney Morning Herald
The Tuckerman suit was concluded yester- day, after a hearing which occupied 19 days
The Jury, after a retirement of an hour and a half, found all the issues in favour of the petitioner and awarded him £2000 damages They found the adultery proved against re- spondent and co-respondent, and not proved against the petitioner and the intervener. The wife's charge of cruelty was found In the negative
On the announcement of the verdict there was an attempt at applause, which was im- mediately suppressed.
His Honor, addressing the Jury, said: "I wish, gentlemen, to tender you my sincere gratitude for the trouble you have taken in this long and arduous case I realise that each one of you has made very great sacrifices in the service of your country, and if you choose to make application to be excused from further service I will consider it, and I will assist you if it lies in my power."
The foreman of the Jury paid a tribute to his Honor for his courtesy and the absolute fairness with which he had treated everybody concerned.
His Honor said he would not pronounce the decree nisi until a later date, as there was the questions of costs and custody to be discussed.

HEAVY BILL FOR CO-RE.
CUSTODY OF CHILD
In the Divorce Court to-day, before Mr. Justice Owen, Rodney Tuckerman and Elizabeth Tuckerman each applied for the custody of their eight year old son, Warwick, who is at present staying with his maternal grandmother in Brisbane. His Honour remarked: "Mrs. Tuckerman is not a bad woman. The find- of the jury was that she fell to the attractions of another man." He added: "May it not be proper always to give legal custody to the husband on condition the child is allowed to remain with the mother."
His Honour formally granted a de- cree nisi and ordered that Mr. Tucker- man have custody of the child on condition that he lived until he was eleven years of age with Mrs. Tuckerman's mother at Brisbane.
With regard to costs, the Judge said he thought that the co-respondent, Herbert Hogg, was responsible. He, therefore, directed that the whole of the costs be born by Hogg, who will, as a result be required to pay a sum in the vicinity of £5,000, including £2,000 damages, awarded against him.

Notes: BRISBANE BOY KILLED Dragged by Train TOOWOOMBA, January 29. Warwick Tuckerman (10) suffered a terrible death to-day, when he was crushed between a train and the platform at the Cambooya station. The lad had been holidaying with his grandfather, Mr. W. J. Whitman, at Tambo Park station, near Goom- burra, and left on to-day's train for Brisbane to return to his grandmother, Mrs. W. J. Whitman, of Ash- grove, Brisbane. While the train was pulling into Cambooya the boy opened the door of thç carriage, and then apparently slipped, falling between the still moving train and the platform. He was dragged five or ten yards before the train was stopped. It was found that his chest had been crushed, and he had received other terrible wounds about the head and body. The ambulance took him to Toowoomba General Hospital, where he died at 5 p.m.
