179. William Charles Hadley Childs
Death of Mr. W. C. H. Childs
Mr. William Charles Hadley Childs died at his residence, Hadley Park, Castlereagh, on Thursday, July 13, at the age of 87 years. The late Mr. Childs was born at Castlereagh, and lived in the district all his life. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Childs, of Castlereagh. He was married to Hannah Howell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Howell, of Castlereagh, and sister of the late W. P. Howell, of international cricket fame, and of Mr. Athol Howell. Mrs. Childs died in 1917.
Deceased will be remembered by many local people with the greatest respect and with affection. Kindness and goodwill were in his' make-up. He was one of the many fine cricketers that Castlereagh has produced through the years. (We doubt if any country district in the State has done much better than Castlereagh in this way). He was a member of the old Castlereagh team that won the Lees Shield, a fine trophy presented by the late S. E. Lees, who was a member for Nepean 40 and 50 years ago, and, with the late Charlie Wright, who died within recent months, was one of the original delegates from Castlereagh to the Nepean District Cricket Association.
Mr. Childs was a consistent sup porter of the Church of England at Castlereagh, and for the last 25 years was the minister's warden. He was a violinist of no mean ability, and often took part in local concerts. He was generous, helpful, and sincere. His recreations were fishing and gun shooting, and he left behind some weapons that are relics of a former type of sporting gun. He was one of the first dairy farmers of the district, and for years used to take milk to Richmond.
Mr. Childs is survived by four daughters and two sons-Violet (Mrs. Yeoman, Springwood), Esla, Hannah, Iola (Mrs. Turner, Yarramundi, Alvan (Castlereagh), and William (Castlereagh). There are a number of grandchildren. Mr. Childs was the last of the family of his generation. The funeral on Friday, July 14, was largely attended, and the service was conducted by the Rector of Emu Plains, the Rev. W. A. Watts. Many beautiful wreaths, including one from the Church Guild at Castlereagh, were forwarded, affording further evidence of the esteem in which the deceased gentleman was held. Among those present was the Mayor of Penrith, Ald. W. L. Chapman.

Eric Thelwell Yeoman
MR. E. T. YEOMANS
In the passing of Eric Thelwell Yeomans, who died suddenly at his residence, 133 Bathurst Road, Springwood, on Sunday, aged 69 years, the district has lost one of its finest sons. He was born at Castlereagh, the younger son of Frank and Eleanor Yeomans. Farming and orchards were his main interest in the Yarramundi district where he was well liked and respected. In sporting life he was a member of the then famous Castlereagh cricket eleven. In later years he was at the City Markets where is it said,
"Eric's word was his bond." Before his death he was conducting a flourishing business in Springwood. He married Violet, eldest daughter of the late William Childs, farmer and dairyman of Castlereagh, who with three sons, Gordon, Ted and Ron (all of Springwood) are. left to mourn their loss. His only brother, Gordon, died of wounds in the 1914-18 war. After a service at the parlours of Messrs. John Price and Son, Station Street, Penrith, conducted by the Rev. J. Paterson, Church of England, Springwood, the funeral proceeded to the Northern Suburbs.
