Notes for Elizabeth Harper:

General Notes:

Elizabeth Harper (Grandma Cleary) had a step-sister called Janet who married a man called George Thomson. They were graziers up around Ross or Cressy in Tasmania. My uncle, Roy Basil Burnell remembered her grabbing a large snake in the woodheap by the tail, yanked it out and cracked the snake like a whip, sending the head flying off. She had 5 sons and 5 daughters.

One son died after the Boer War where he was decorated for bravery. He developed Tuberculosis and it eventually killed him.

Elizabeth was 6 years old when she arrived in Tasmania from Scotland.

She kept the little armchair that she sat on the ships deck with. It was always alongside the fireplace at William St, West Hobart. Roy Basil and my father Cyril (Fred) used to sit in it and keep her company on cold nights.

Notes for Henri Jules Binet:

General Notes:

[MYGED.GED]

Henri Binet was French. He was a phenomenal shot with a gun. In fact a

Bookmaker imported a pigeon gun for him at great cost from England. In

those days pigeon shooting was all the go and they used to bet on

whether you dropped the first pigeon or the second or both. They had an

arrangement of signals of which bird was shot or both, and they made a

lot of cash out of it. He eventually became the Tourist Bureau of

Tasmania's guide for all overseas travellers who wanted to go deer, duck

or quail shooting or see the wilderness. He died of stomach cancer. He

was very close to Roy Basil. He had two daughters, Marie and Sadie. He

wanted to swap one of his daughters for Roy. Every Sunday they used to

visit us for tea or we would visit them. They only lived a couple of

blocks away further up the mountain.

Notes for Cyril Henry Burnell:

General Notes:

 

My Grandfather, Cyril Burnell was born in Hobart Tasmania on 28th Dec,

1883.

In 1908, he married Elizabeth Cleary who was a pastry-cook in Hobart.

Around 1920 they moved with my father Fred and my uncle Roy to Bronte

where they lived for a short time. Cyril was an upholsterer and

eventually set himself up in business at Victoria Avenue, Chatswood.

They lived in the residence above the shop. From the balcony upstairs, I

used to watch the trams going up to Chatswood Station. Directly opposite

their shop there used to be an open roof movie theatre. On hot nights

they used to roll the roof back and you could watch the stars and the

movie at the same time. Elizabeth used to make the cushion covers on her

sewing machine for the lounges and chairs my Grandfather used to make.

He made my sister Beryl and I a minature lounge chair each which was

exactly like the full sized one. It was a very strong chair and we used

to sit in front of the fire on cold nights and listen to the radio

serials.When they retired in 1958 they moved to Narrabeen Lakes. Two

years later Cyril passed away.

My Grandmother lived for another 12 years until she also passed away

with a heart attack.

Notes for Cyril Frederick Henry Burnell:

General Notes:

 

Cyril (or better known as 'Fred') was born in Hobart, Tasmania and came

to live in Sydney around mid-1920's. First at Bronte and then at Chatswood. It

was here that he came to know my mother Vicky Wray at a local tennis

club. They were married and moved to Marrickville, then to 43 West St,

Hurstville, then to East Lindfield, then to Crows Nest, then Willoughby,

then Dee Why. They had 5 children, 3 daughters and 2 sons. The eldest

girl was Winifred who died at birth. Then came Roy, Beryl, Fred and

Jenny. My sister Beryl and I didn't see much of my Dad until 1945 when

the Second World War ended. He served in the Royal Australian Air Force

and was attached to No 2 Squadron in Darwin and Port Moresby. He was a

tail gunner and saw action. I remember him being wounded by several

pieces of shrapnell. Late 1945, we moved to Willoughby and dad worked

for Paramount Panel Beaters at Neutral Bay. A short time later he worked

at Hallstrom Refrigerators at Naremburn as a spray painter. I remember

spending annual holidays at Moruya Heads on the NSW South Coast where we would camp, fish and swim. They were good family times. In 1955, we

moved to Dee Why and spent our teenage years near the beach. Fred worked

at the Manly Leagues Club and Palm Beach Golf Club as a Bar Manager.

When my mother died of cancer, it really shattered our family because we

were extremely close to her. Our mother would go without things herself

so that we would not miss out on the essentials. When Jenny married Reg

Clare, they stayed on at the Dee Why house and eventually bought it from

my father. Later on they renovated the house completely. You wouldn't

recognise it. Fred moved to Tanilba Bay and lived a de-facto

relationship with my Aunt Joyce, who had been divorced from my uncle

Roy. It was at Tanilba Bay that Fred suffered a heart attack and died on

21/8/1982. Fred loved Rugby League and most sports. He was Secretary to

the Manly Warringah Junior Rugby League for many years.

 

 

     

Victoria Winifred Wray is the daughter of John Haverly Dolph Wray and Winifred Gladys Blunt [1]. She was born on 08 Jan 1910 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia [1]. She died on 27 Dec 1964 in Manly, New South Wales, Australia [1]. Cause of Death was Cancer. Burial in Sutherland Cemetary [1].

                 
     

Notes for Victoria Winifred Wray:

General Notes:

 

Vicky was born in 1910. She was a hairdresser and during the Depression of the 1930's, she kept her parents and siblings alive, having the only source of income in her family. She met my father Fred Burnell at a tennis club and later married in 1936. She was a loving mother who gave birth to five children. The eldest was Winifred who died at birth. Vicky loved life and would enjoy the simple things such as swimming, dancing, going to the movies and various social events. Unfortunately, she developed Cancer in the 1950's and following several operations she died in 1964. She didn't get the chance to see her grand-children grow to maturity and when she died, the family was devastated, ... a big hole was left in our lives. She is still sadly missed.

Notes for Roy Basil Burnell Snr:

General Notes:

Roy was born in 1916 and became a licensed plumber by trade. He then went to Teachers College and became a High School Manual Arts Teacher.

Roy was also one of Australia's leading Dog Judges. His name is still a by- word in gun-dog circles throughout Australia. For many decades he has written articles and books on the various breeds of gun-dogs as well as racing greyhounds. He specialised in breeding and training various types of dogs such as English Pointers and three breeds of Setters, Labradors, Weimaraners and Spaniels.

I remember my Uncle Roy giving me a Blue-haired "Cocker" Spaniel named 'Curley' when I was very young. I loved that dog and was heartbroken when she died. Soon after Roy gave me an Irish Setter who I called 'Gypsy' - She had a fabulous red coat that shined all the time.

I also remember going to the Royal Easter Show each year to watch him judge the dogs, day after day. He certainly loved it. He also travelled all over Australia and to many countries just to judge dogs at Dog Shows.

Roy married Joyce Cato, lived at Gladesville and had two sons Malcolm and Ian. Roy divorced his wife Joyce and later married Norma Burgess.

Norma's daughter Vicki Burgess changed her name by Deed Poll to Burnell. She gave birth to a son Roy Basil Burnell Jnr. After Roy jnr was killed in a car accident, they moved to Murdanna Tasmania where they lived until Roy died.

I was born in 1938 and grew up during the 2nd World War (1941-1945) with my mother and sister Beryl, at Crows Nest. At the end of the War, when my father returned from the Air Force, we moved to Willoughby where I spent most of my childhood. I was one of those kids who loved school and studied

hard. My parents thought I would follow in my uncle's footsteps and become a Manual Arts teacher like he did. I shocked them when I said I was quitting school in my 4th year of high school, to join the National Bank.

I married Helen Millar, but the marriage lasted just two years.

I spent eight years with the Bank as a Teller, then left to work with the NRMA Insurance Company.

I married Robyn Stearn and had three sons, Charlton, Shannon & Shayne.

I worked 18 years with the NRMA and was then offerred an executive position with the Phoenix Insurance Company. I stayed with them for 12 years and was medically discharged in 1992 with a pituitory brain tumor. After the operation, I started working from home doing Network Marketing with Grace Cosmetics and Pro-Ma Performance products. I became interested in family genealogy and have spent many years doing the necessary research.

I then became a Market Researcher which I found was quite enjoyable.

After 32 years of marriage I divorced Robyn, then on 24 Jan 2003 I moved to Redcliffe Qld where I now live with my partner Stella Doney, a girl I had met 37 years earlier at the NRMA. We are now extremely happy, we both love to travel to exotic places and are committed to each other for the rest of our lives. On 5th January 2008 Stella and I were married at The Golden Ox Restaurant at Margate Qld.

In 2006 I began working as a volunteer at the Redcliffe Museum which is very enjoyable and gives me an opportunity to meet other people with similar interests.
