Gordon

We all come from Wallace Gordon and Margaret Vernon.

Minnie Gordon (granddaughter of Margaret Vernon and Wallace Gordon) and James Hellings Press wedding notice.

The engraving on the stone reads: "In loving memory of Isabella the beloved wife of James Mills born Airdrie, Scotland died 20th November 1902 at West Wallsend aged 64 years.  Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe on His gentle breast, There by His love serenaded, Sweetly my soul shall rest.
Isabella Mills née Hilson
Grave Marker

Note - it was originally believed that this Isabella Mills was Isabella daughter of Margaret Vernon and Wallace Gordon, but further research has shown it was a different Isabella. Continuing research looks for the elusive Isabella Gordon, who supposedly married a James Mills in Scotland. (No such marriage has yet been discovered, but neither has a death for Isabella Gordon.)


Kirgan

Am hoping for one of Maggie Gordon Vernon Murphy née Stewart who was 105 years old when she died. (Leonne is waiting for it to arrive via snail mail.)


Guidoux

Marriage certificate for Jessie Guidoux and first husband Alfred Lippiatt, clearly showing the clumsy alteration of the date — believed to have been done to cover up that Jessie's daughter Florence had been born three years prior to them marrying.  Whether done by either of the couple, or a later generation is unknown.

Sawmill Burned
SAWMILL BURNED.  BOWRAVILLE, Thursday. Between 3 and 4 o'clock this morning Mr. Guidoux's sawmill was completely destroyed by fire.  When the outbreak was discovered the fire had such a firm hold on the mill that it was impossible to suppress it.  The whole mill building and contents, including machinery and an amount of timber, were gutted.  The premises and timber were uninsured, but the machinery was covered to the extent of £900. Mr. Guidoux is a loser to the extent of £1600. The mill will be re- erected at once.

Williamson

The first "Williamson" of this line in Australia was William Robert Williamson. His father, Ole, began life as Waldemarsson, changing his patronymic in 1880 on his departure from Sweden, where he is listed as Ole Williamsen (with an e). By the time he married the half-Scottish, part-Irish Kitty Gordon in Queensland in 1899, he was spelling it "Williamson" (with an o).

Paul

This lot all came from John Paul and Tempest Margaret Hughes.

Britons, And New Australians

shows new Australians a map of Queensland. (1949)
COMMONWEALTH Employment Officer, Mr C. T. Paul, brought along a map of Queensland when he met the British immigrants (left) who arrived this week. They're bound for the "Sunshine State" and were eager for information.[1]


Judge Paul imported a Japanese House and had it re-erected in New Farm where he lived in the late 19th century, early 20th century.  After his death it, and all the contents, was sold.  Eventually renamed as the "Ruth Fairfax House" by the Queensland Country Women's Association, (it has its own Wikipedia page!), "Yeddo", as the Judge had named his domicile, was pulled down piece by piece and transported from Brisbane to Ingham, where it was re-erected on Lynch Street.  In December 2003 it was added to the Queensland Heritage Register.  The house has undergone (may still be undergoing (2023)) extensive repairs, including bringing in Japanese experts to assist in retaining its authenticity.
