1861: Amelia is born, in Christchurch.

1893: Amelia [now 32] marries William Crerar who is about 26, his occupation is recorded as a plumber [as is his older brother, David, who is yet to marry Amelia’s younger sister Jane].

By 1903 Amelia & William are well settled in at 32 Ovens St Yarraville, they are to have at least four children [Amelia 1894, William 1897, Robert 1898, & Alexander 1905].

Ovens St Yarraville is to remain Amelia & William's family home until they both pass-away. William is to die in 1921 [at about 54].

Here, this part of the story becomes a little confusing, as the 1924 electoral role has William’s brother David [50] living with sister in-law Amelia [63], in Yarraville, he has obviously moved away from wife Jane [51] and their son David Charles [19].

After Amelia dies in 1945 [at 84], the 1949 & 1954 electoral roles have David with his son David Charles at 15 Moore Street in South Yarra.
