Falls family - unknown direct family -Australia / Scotland

+3 votes
Terrence Maurice Falls was put in an orphanage as a boy.  He also went by the name Maurie, or Maurice Terrence.  Born 1923. ( although also has put down 1917 and 1922 as birth dates for the purpose of joining both British Merchant Seaman Navy and Australian Army).  Family recalls the names of Cecil, Annie and Jessie as direct relatives but cannot determine if they are all siblings or parents and sibling etc.  Maurie married Norma Irene Murray.  He is listed on army records as being born in Mona Vale Nsw however could actually have immigrated from Scotland with his parents and siblings.  He did discuss having Scottish heritage.   His father travelled and his mother could not keep all the children and so had to place Maurie in an orphanage / home for destitute families.  Maurice was apparently adopted by a kiwi family for the purpose of working ona farm.?.

Any info would be greatly appreciated no matter how small.

thank you.    Deanna Falls dazndee@icloud.com

I looked up the death notice. Nothing new there.

SMH, 28 Mar 1981

FALLS, Maurice Terrence - March 27, 1981 (suddenly) - beloved husband of Norma, loved father of Maurice, Dennis, Robert and Richard, fond father-in-law and grandfather of their families.

Aged 58 years. At Peace.

I also notice a coupl of Falls in NSW and Queensland with Terrence in their names. Might be worth pursuing.
