From the Passenger List on departure from Sydney 17 Oct 1903, and various Australian newspaper reports:
     Saloon passengers Sydney/Colombo
     Mr H. L. Harris, age 36 [actually 58]
     Mrs H. L. Harris, age 32 [actually 52]
     Miss Harris, age 15 [actually 19]
     On this voyage, the Arcadia, under Master F.C.A. Lyon, left Sydney with 51 passengers (22 male adults, 26 female adults, 1 child and 2 infants) and travelled via Melbourne (20 Oct), Adelaide (22 Oct), Fremantle (26 Oct), Colombo (6 Nov), Aden (12 Nov), Port Said (17 Nov) and Marseilles (22 Nov) to London (29 Nov).

Extract from Burcher Pioneers and their Better Halves, pp143-144:
     On 25 August 1903, Lavie’s diary says: “The AMP has paid me £800 against my bonuses and I have engaged cabins for Em, Nettie and self on the Arcadia, bound for India. We hope to meet Robert Stanes and Pat at Colombo on their return from England. Pat’s marriage with Nettie will take place from Robert’s house at Coimbatore."
     They sailed on the Arcadia as planned and Lavie enjoyed every minute of the trip but Em records that the ship rolled badly in the Bight and continued to roll all the way to Colombo. Despite this they joined in the games and Nettie won three prizes, some smelling salts, a picture frame and a case of scissors, quite suitable for a girl about to be married. She was a favourite among the passengers and when leaving the ship a lady traveller gave her a string of pearls.31,32,33,34,35

Marriage of son17 Dec 1924George Thomas Hamlyn (Tom) Harris, Florence Elizabeth (Betty) Proudfoot; Presbyterian Church, Manly, NSW; >
Marriage certificate shows that the witnesses were W and Lurline Lester.
Apparently Tom had been to George Proudfoot to ask for his daughter's hand. They agreed to have a drink to seal the agreement. Tom thought this meant something strong and therefore asked for a scotch and soda. George responded by ordering two ginger ales!
Tom and Betty's wedding appears to have been a secret, as one would expect that the witnesses would have been family members (the Lesters are not known to the family). While it was not forbidden to be married, young medical students were not expected to be married. But Tom and Betty had been to WW1 and seen some life, so it was not altogether unexpected that they got married while he was still studying.46,49

It refers to the groom as 'a distant connection of the Harris family. He hails from Toowoomba, QLD, and is the third son of the late Captain Hamlyn Huntingdon Hamlyn-Harris, of Maryborough, QLD. The principal bridesmaids were Misses Nellie and Edna Harris (sisters of the bride) ... There were also two little bridesmaids (Jean Stacey and Kathleen Walker), nieces of the bride ... Mr A. N. Stacey (brother-in-law to the bride) ... [was] best man. ... [The couple] left by train, on the day of the wedding, to enjoy their honeymoon ... near Sydney. ...'

Extract from Stacy 'HL Harris of Wermatong':
     Bertha was the sweetest little bride of 19 in the conventional wedding array. Nell and Edna were her maids, also Kathleen Walker and Jean Stacy (aged 4 and 3). When the newly-weds went to the vestry the two children calmly sat down on the sanctuary steps to rest!
     The wedding refreshments were provided by Mrs Madigan at the Oriental Hotel.36,37,38,39

(Passenger) Travelfr 17 Oct 1903 - 6 Nov 1903Hamlyn Lavicount (Lavie) Harris, Emily Lucy Louisa (Em) Harris; RMS Arcadia, P&O Line, Sydney/Colombo, AUSTRALIA/CEYLON; >
From the Passenger List on departure from Sydney 17 Oct 1903, and various Australian newspaper reports:
     Saloon passengers Sydney/Colombo
     Mr H. L. Harris, age 36 [actually 58]
     Mrs H. L. Harris, age 32 [actually 52]
     Miss Harris, age 15 [actually 19]
     On this voyage, the Arcadia, under Master F.C.A. Lyon, left Sydney with 51 passengers (22 male adults, 26 female adults, 1 child and 2 infants) and travelled via Melbourne (20 Oct), Adelaide (22 Oct), Fremantle (26 Oct), Colombo (6 Nov), Aden (12 Nov), Port Said (17 Nov) and Marseilles (22 Nov) to London (29 Nov).

Extract from Burcher Pioneers and their Better Halves, pp143-144:
     On 25 August 1903, Lavie’s diary says: “The AMP has paid me £800 against my bonuses and I have engaged cabins for Em, Nettie and self on the Arcadia, bound for India. We hope to meet Robert Stanes and Pat at Colombo on their return from England. Pat’s marriage with Nettie will take place from Robert’s house at Coimbatore."
     They sailed on the Arcadia as planned and Lavie enjoyed every minute of the trip but Em records that the ship rolled badly in the Bight and continued to roll all the way to Colombo. Despite this they joined in the games and Nettie won three prizes, some smelling salts, a picture frame and a case of scissors, quite suitable for a girl about to be married. She was a favourite among the passengers and when leaving the ship a lady traveller gave her a string of pearls.10,11,12,13,14

     Parents and 2 children.
     Margaret lived in Sydney (and elsewhere?) for some time while Arch was away during WW2. However, she was at Dewrang (and Arch was away) when the Cowra breakout occurred on 5 August 1944. 1,104 Japanese prisoners of war attempted to escape from a prisoner of war camp near Cowra (about 70km from Dewrang). It was the largest prison escape of WW2, and one of the bloodiest. During the escape and ensuing manhunt, 4 Australian soldiers and 231 Japanese soldiers were killed. Within 10 days, the remaining escapees were re-captured and imprisoned.
     From July 1944, Margaret was at Appin (with the 2 children) for about 6 months. Then she was with her parents at All Saints Rectory, Parramatta for about 6 months.76,77

Employmentfr Apr 1913 - Jun 1917Church of England in Australia, Holy Trinity Church, Grenfell, NSW; >
Parish Rector.
Extracts from 'The Parish of Holy Trinity Church, Grenfell, 1877-1977':
Mr Levick resigned in February 1913 and Rev. Edward Walker was licensed on 15 April 1913. A curate, Rev. R. G. Nicholls, was appointed on the stipend of £130 pa -- he was to have the use of the rector's horse and sulky. By December, a suitable horse and conveyance was found as long as the council found horse feed. ...
...
Mr Walker took over his term from 1913 to 1916 [actually 1917], which took in the difficult war years of the 1914-1918 War. ...
In May 1914, the first time in history, Grenfell was favoured with a visit from the highest dignitary of the Church, His Grace the Archbishop of Sydney and Primate of Australia, the Most Reverend Dr Wright. He was accompanied by the Right Reverend Dr Long, Bishop of Bathurst. A banquet was held and a public meeting to follow. The Grenfell Observer and the Grenfell Record gave a huge covering of this important event. They stayed overnight, Dr Long at the Union Bank and the Archbishop at Mr P. V. Carter's "Clare Park" property.
In June 1915, Mr Walker was approached about taking services at Bimbi and Kikiamah while other arrangements were being made, following Mr Redhead leaving the parish of Tubbul. Delegates attended from Bimbi and Kikiamah to meet with wardens and discuss the possibility of Mr Walker taking temporary services.
...
At this stage [1916], a horse for Sunday Services had to be hired or supplied by a parishioner. After the departure of the Curate, Mr Nicholls, in 1916, there was much discussion on the need for locomotion for the rector as he would now have four country services monthly. The Rector was told that if he could purchase a car, the council would allow him £80 a year upkeep. It was impossible for Mr Walker to buy a car, so the wardens arranged transportation for February and March. In 1916, the rector's stipend was £300. Following the failure to obtain a car, the vestry offered to feed two horses on condition that in the event of securing a curate, the rector find locomotion for him.
...
In July 1916, Rev. C. C. Crowley was appointed as assistant to Mr Walker, but his term was short-lived owing to the financial position of the parish.
...
Rev. E. Walker tendered his resignation as he had accepted a position at St Paul's, Chatswood on 12 June 1917. The Venerable Archdeacon W. K. Howell was licensed on 8 September 1917.38

(Witness) Historyfr Feb 1919 - Sep 1919Extracts 26 Nov 2009 from the web sites of Wikipedia, the Australian Government Department of Health & Ageing and the Australian Secdurity Research Centre:
The 1918 flu pandemic (commonly referred to as the Spanish Flu) was an influenza pandemic that spread to nearly every part of the world. It was caused by an unusually virulent and deadly influenza A virus strain of subtype H1N1. Most of its victims were healthy young adults, in contrast to most influenza outbreaks which predominantly affect juvenile, elderly, or otherwise weakened patients. The illness came on suddenly and progressed rapidly. Many people died from bacterial disease after infection with influenza.
The pandemic lasted from March 1918 to June 1920 and it is estimated that upwards of 50 million people died, more than three times the number who died in the First World War. An estimated 500 million, more than 30% of the world's population, were infected. Global spread and severity were influenced by the war and the movement of troops.
The flu did not reach Australia until 1919, partly because of strict maritime quarantine implemented by the government. But an estimated 12,000 Australians died, and the national emergency brought to the surface the tensions between the Commonwealth and the states, between the Church and the State, and between the wealthy and impoverished. Three waves of flu infections hit NSW over 8 months, and over 6,000 citizens died.
Extract from Hicks 'A City On A Hill', page 25:
By February 1919, a new terror had struck -- the influenza epidemic. St Paul's like other churches complied with the order to close. For some weeks, all gatherings ceased, including schools and Sunday Schools, and even open air worship was proscribed. Pat Walker used the 'Gazette' as a means of communicating with his parishioners both active and nominal. Later open air services and meetings were held.
The infection risk again led to questioning of the use of the common cup in Holy Communion, and permission was given for individual cups to be used. In May the parish hall was lent to the Red Cross for housing children whose parents had fallen victim to influenza. Not until September did the 'Gazette' record that all traces of the epidemic had abated.

Sydney Morning Herald, 31 Jan 1934, page 17 'Irish Free State -- Views of Travellers':
The Rev. Edward Walker, rector and rural dean of Wollongong, who returned by the Hobsons Bay yesterday from a visit to his native city, Dublin, said that Ireland was no happier than when he left it 30 years ago. In civic affairs and in general outlook, Dublin was the most backward city in the world. The Free State needed decent government. Every party had a general and every private wanted to be a general. If the Cosgrave Government had been allowed to continue in office, things would have been better. As an Irishman, he approved the desire for home rule, but thought that wiser government was needed in the Free State before anything to make the people happy could be steadily accomplished.70

     Margaret lived in Sydney (and elsewhere?) for some time while Arch was away during WW2. However, she was at Dewrang (and Arch was away) when the Cowra breakout occurred on 5 August 1944. 1,104 Japanese prisoners of war attempted to escape from a prisoner of war camp near Cowra (about 70km from Dewrang). It was the largest prison escape of WW2, and one of the bloodiest. During the escape and ensuing manhunt, 4 Australian soldiers and 231 Japanese soldiers were killed. Within 10 days, the remaining escapees were re-captured and imprisoned.
     From July 1944, Margaret was at Appin (with the 2 children) for about 6 months. Then she was with her parents at All Saints Rectory, Parramatta for about 6 months.87,88

Court28 Feb 1972Leslie Denis (Denis) Emerson-Elliott; Canberra, ACT; >
     This ACT Supreme Court case before Mr Justice Fox was heard on 16 Feb 1972, 17 Feb 1972 and 28 Feb 1972 and reported in the Canberra Times on the following days. The text that follows is an edited version of the Canberra Times reports. $18,000 in 1972 equates to approximately $100,000 in 2013.
---------------------------------------
     Mrs Annie Jean Emerson- Elliott (AJD), of Wilkins Street, Mawson, claimed $18,000 from Mr Leslie Dennis [sic] Emerson-Elliott (LDEE), of London Circuit, Canberra City. AJD was represented by Mr J. Gallop and LDEE was represented by Mr A. S. Gillespie-Jones and Mr P. Sheils, instructed by Mr D. St John Emerson-Elliott.
     AJD said in evidence she had first met LDEE, the proprietor of a firm known as Real Estate and Finance Corporation of Canberra, in December 1968, when she had been in the market for a home in Canberra. She had then been a widow for about 10 years. An association had developed from that business transaction and in August 1969, they had discussed marriage.
     During the ensuing period there had been an exchange of confidences about their respective financial positions. LDEE had told her that he had been in financial difficulties and that his bank account had been overdrawn. He had said that the deficiencies had resulted from fraud by an employee. LDEE had mentioned that $10,000 had been owing to the bank. This amount had been increased to more than $15,000.
     AJD said their wedding date had been fixed for 29 October 1970, and subsequently LDEE had indicated that more than $17,000 had been owing to the bank. She had agreed to lend him the money for the purposes of his business and had made out a cheque for $18,000 which she had given to him on 22 October 1970.
     They had been married on 29 October 1970.
     After their marriage LDEE had indicated from time to time that he was not in a position to repay the loan. AJD said she had not pressed for repayment because she had believed he could not afford to repay her. Matrimonial difficulties had arisen and they had separated. None of the $18,000 had been repaid.
     In cross-examination, AJD said she had been shocked to learn that her husband had not been indebted to the bank. She agreed that he had given her a cheque for $10,000 but he had told her not to cash it because there had been no funds in the bank.
---------------------------------------
     In his evidence the following day, LDEE, of Haddon Street, Hackett, said that a cheque for $18,000 he had received from his wife had been a gift because she had wanted to get married. She had told him she would not mention it to anyone and did not want him to mention it. He said the money had not been lent to him and denied that he had ever been indebted to his bankers. He had never told his wife that he owed money to his bankers and that he had been pressed for payment.
     About 28 August 1970, he had drawn a cheque for $10,000 in favour of his wife and this represented half the cost of the matrimonial home at Mawson. LDEE said it had been mutually agreed that he pay this amount as he had been reluctant to live in the house and his wife had thought that if he had a half share in it, he would not feel so bad about it. She had later told him that she had torn the cheque up and he had felt very hurt and upset.
---------------------------------------
     After an adjournment to 28 Feb 1972, Mr Justice Fox said that the sum of $18,000 paid by AJD to her husband shortly before their marriage was a loan and not a gift. He entered judgment for $18,000 plus costs in favour of AJD against LDEE.
---------------------------------------
     It is not known whether LDEE paid the amount of the judgement.
