Neil grew up in Rozelle NSW. It was an industrial area with the attendant pollution. Soot from the railway yards, and power stations, and smells from the various chemical works were particulary noticeable. Neil attended Rozelle Central school for primary and in 1960 began high school at the new Ibrox Park Boy's High. He began his Chem Certificate in 1965 at Sydney Technical College, and worked at Dunlop [Perdriau's] Drummoyne, and later Chemical Materials. He retired in 2007 from Nuplex Inustries Ltd.

It looks like William (Cowburn-87) is the son of Thomas Dewhurst Cowburn. Thom's parents are William and Hannah Cowburn (Jennings) of Bush Hotel (Inn) and other drinking establishments. I will do some more on him during January. Happy New Year.
