    Notes 
    • Ted worked on his father's farm until 1935, when they moved to Coomandook, where they rented a 2,000 acre farm consisting of virgin scrub or regrowth. They started off with a few sheep and gradually increased numbers as the land was cleared and supered. Except for timber belts the property eventually was fenced and cleared. After illness and removal of one kidney in 1961 his health deteriorated. He had his first coronary in 1965k after which he decided to sell the Coomandook farm and move to Western Flat to a property they had bought there. At this stage the family had grown up. They had their clearing sale in February 1967 and moved the next month. They caravanned quite a bit until Ted's death when he had his final coronary in Western Australia.
