    Notes 
    • Alfred was born on the farm. He attended Kybunga school, and Croydon Primary while living with his Uncle Alfred (after whom he was named) and Aunt Jane Clarke. He returned to live at Kybunga to hold his father on the farm. Eventually Alfred lived on a nearby farm "Clarunga" and with careful management built up a productive farming area. At first Alfred had a team of Clydesdale horses but later purchased his first tractor in the 1920s. His first wife Clara was a dressmaker and had a lovely contralto voice. She and her sisters were often in demand to sing at local functions. Her children were only young when she died. He later married Clara Pedler from Blyth.
      Alfred was a lay preacher, preaching mostly at the Blyth Methodist Church, and was at one time Superintendent of the Sunday School at this church. He was a good sportsman and played cricket with many local teams, including the Tiller Cricket team, the patrons of this team being William Tiller and John Charles Tucker. Alfred won many trophies for his cricket activities and was a good Australian Rules footballer. He died of a severe stroke. (information obtained from "The Tucker Family in Australia" 1992.
