12. Rowland George Yeomans

BEFORE the Chairman, and Gilbert Cory, Esq., J.P.
This was an appeal by Rowland George Yeomans against a decision of the Maitland Bench, awarding maintenance to Mary Crawford, for an illegitimate child, of 30s. per week, and £20 for expenses. Mr. Callaghan appeared for the appellant; attorney, Mr. O'Meagher. Mr. Purefoy appeared for the respondent ; attorney, Mr. Mullen. Preliminary objections were taken by each side, but overruled, except as regarded the £20 for expenses, an objection against which, as not authorised by the act, was sustained. The witnesses called in support of the conviction were Mary Crawford, and Thomas Whitty Toby. Mr. Callaghan contended at some length that the evidence adduced to corroborate the mother's oath was quite insufficient to sustain the conviction. Mr. Purefoy in reply contended that it amply corroborated it. The Court confirmed the conviction and order as far as regarded the weekly payment of £1 10s., but quashed the order as regarded the £20 costs ; but they allowed £10 costs of the appeal.

DEATH OF MR. ROLAND YEOMANS. Mr. Roland G. Yeomans, on of the oldest settlers in the Hunter River district, died at his residence, Campbell's Hill, yesterday, after an illness of several months. He was a Hawkesbury native, and cames to Maitland 72 years ago, when a child of ten years. In his youth he lived with his (parents in a house which was located on the site Stow occupied by Messrs. J. N. Brunker and Son's salerooms, in High street. He distinctly remembered the notorious Molly Morgan; who kept a public house where the Angel Inn now stands. On one occasion his father quelled a disturbance in Molly's house, and she. offered to hand over her grant to him for a hogshead of rum. Mr. Yeomans,  declined to have any dealings with the old virago, but had he consented his family would now be in possession of the most valuable properties in Maitland. In turn an auctioneer. racing man, pastoralist, and horsebreeder, he had a varied experience in assisting to the development of the district. For years his colours were carried on the turf with varying success, while he was also utmost successful in the breeding of cattle and horses. Few men have been able to boast of such a large circle of friends whose confidence and esteem he possessed.  He leaves a widow, three sons, and four daughters, viz., Messrs. E. G. Yeomans, of Newcastle, Frank Yeomans, of Natal, South Africa, and S. Yeomans, of Charters Towers, and Mrs. Smithers, wife of Mr. G. Smithers, S.M., Sydney, Mrs. King, wife of Mr. F.King, at Queensland, and Misses N. and Z. Yeomans.

15. Ann Winton

Another old and highly respected resident of Wilberforce, in the person of Mrs. Anne Teale, wife of Mr. Henry Teale, died on Monday week, at the advanced age of 74 years. Prior to retiring to bed the deceased complained of being ill, but at the time gave no cause for alarm. However, during the night the members of the household were awakened, and the old lady appeared in a state of collapse. Medical aid was summoned, but it was not long ere she passed peacefully away. The cause of death was pronounced as heart failure. Deceased was a native of Wilberforce, was married (58 years ago), and died in the same place. She was held in the highest respect by all who knew her, and the unusually large crowd of people at the funeral was an excellent tribute to the memory of one so loved. At St. John's Church of England, Wilberforce, the Rev. W. S. Newton, M.A., delivered a touching address, during the course of which he referred to the grand life of deceased, and the noble example she set others. The choir sang a hymn, and as the coffin was borne from the church, the organist played the "Dead March." Decreased was the mother of a family of fourteen, all of whom, with the exception of one daughter, survive her—Miss Annie Teale and Mr. Joe Teale, Wilberforce ; Mrs. Dorrington, Cornwallis; W. H., Fred., and Jas. Teale, Sydney ; Mrs. T. H. Jack son, Pymble; Mrs. Mackinnon, Coolamon; and Mesdames David Gosper, McKay, Fergusson, Rossitter, and Read, all of Sydney.

113. Cyrus John Turnbull

Mr. Cyrus Turnbull.

The "Berry Register" of a recent date publishes a very interesting account of a farewell social and presentation of address to Mr. and Mrs. Turnbull on their leaving the Woodhill Public-school for that of Milton.  The Mayor occupies the chair.  the chairman, in presenting the address, said he had pleasure in bearing testimony to the great benefit the district had derived from Mr. Turnbull's residence there.  During the nine years he had been in charge of the school they had ever found him throwing his whole body and soul into his school-work, and taking a lively interest in every good work outside of his school duties.  Messrs. H. Lamond, E. Cook, R. V. Boyd, J.P. Alderman W.J. Walker, and John Cook followed, all speaking of the guest of the evening as a man of high principle, strict integrity, and uprightness, a thoroughly conscientious man, and a worthy example as a neighbour friend, husband, and father.  In saying goodbye they would so so in the good old word "farewell", as they most heartily hoped that Mr. and Mrs. Turnbull would fare well in the their new home.  Mr. Turnbull, in replying, thanked the friends assembled, not only for their kindness that evening, but for many kindly acts during the past nine years; he felt glad that now when the time for parting had arrived, there was no cloud hanging over the past, as he had never had a single hitch with the parents or friends of the children.  Both he and Mrs. Turnbull felt sorry at leaving their happy home.  They would never forget the encouragement and assistance they had received from their friends at Woodhill, and they felt that it was this kindly co-operation that assured the success that could not have been obtained without.  Songs, recitations and the usual votes of thanks filled up the time until midnight, when the meeting broke up.  The foregoing will be read with interest, from the fact that Mr. Turnbull was born and educated at Sackville, being the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Turnbull, of Glenlee Farm, Sackville.    Source: Windsor and Richmond Gazette 29 Apr 1893



  MR. CYRUS JOHN TURNBULL, relict of  the late Emma Turnbull, died on Wednesday morning at the residence of his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. V. H. Dixon, "Illawarra", Freeman's Reach-road, at the ripe age of 82 years.  Born at Sackville Reach in 1854, his father, the late James Turnbull was one of the earliest pioneers of the Hawkesbury district.  In 1873, Mr. Turnbull became a teacher, and the Education  department appointed him to half-tie schools at Blackfriars and Mulgoa Forest Mountain.  In 1882, he was transferred to Woodhill, Shoalhaven district, and nine years later took charge at Croobyar.  After 45 years teaching he retired and again made his home on the Hawkesbury river.  He is survived by one son and three daughters, viz., Winifred (Mrs. A .S. Cork, Milton), Ida (Mrs. V.H. Dixon, Freeman's Reach-road), Edna (Mrs. Bishop, Waitara) and William (Martin Place, Sydney).  the funeral took place from his daughter's residence, Freeman's Reach-road, on Thursday, morning for the Church of England cemetery, Mulgoa, where the remains were laid by the side of those of his wife.  Mr. Chandler was the undertaker.
