|Pick up whose kids????|
At the moment I'm going through old newspapers online (trove.nla.gov.au) and have found numerous ads and notifications placed by my great-great-great-grandfather who owned a pub and inn in inner Brisbane (well, it is now inner Brisbane. Back then George Street was referred to as North Brisbane!). Late last night I found an ad he'd placed on May 1 1865 ...
I hereby caution all clergymen and others against marrying my son Charles ........., as he is not eighteen years of age yet.Charles had stowed away with his elder brother on a boat bound for the Sunshine Coast and I get the feeling he didn't seek his father's approval! And as this was the date that Charles married Anne, I really don't think dad approved!!
My how times have changed! I can't wait to find out more....!
