1570 W W Campbell & Co was a furniture manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer established by William Webb Campbell (1861-1928) in 1886. Campbell learned the trade from his father, William Branch Campbell (1826-1906) who operated the company, W B Campbell, between about 1875 and 1883 from the 'Royal Furnishing Arcade' at 426 George Street. W B Campbell was a furnishing retailer and manufacturer of furniture and bedding. Upon William Branch?s retirement, the company passed to his sons, William Webb, Alfred Branch, Chas J. and Henry, and became known as Campbell Bros.

Campbell Brothers continued in business until around 1890, though W W Campbell & Co established its own shop front first in Castlereagh Street, then George Street and finally from around 1897 at 249 Clarence Street. W W Campbell & Co also seems to have taken over W B Campbell?s factory at Cowper Wharf Woolloomooloo where 60 to 70 workers were employed. By 1902 the furniture factory was located at Miller Street Pyrmont and an advertisement in the Sydney Sands directory stated that W W Campbell & Co were 'manufacturers of furniture, bedding, wire mattresses, and every description of bamboo rush and wicker furniture' and 'importers of British, American, Eastern furniture, bamboo blinds, chairs, lounges &c.' A catalogue from around 1900 (TCQ 749.20491 CAM) illustrates the company?s strong emphasis on cane furniture, with different types referred to either as bamboo, rush, wicker, rattan or pith.
By the mid-1920s when W W Campbell & Co issued a Furnishing the home catalogue (TCQ 749.20492 CAM) aimed especially at country residents, the company was selling a wider range of home furnishings including: carpets, linoleum and other floor coverings; mattresses, sheets, blankets and quilts; lamp shades, standard and table lamps; blinds, curtains, curtain rods and fixtures. A later catalogue from around 1939 entitled, Enjoy the comforts of a well furnished home (TCQ 749.20493 CAM), features all of the above furnishings while maintaining the company?s original strengths in cane and other furniture.

Another important aspect to Campbell's business was its wholesale trade. Until at least the late 1930s, W W Campbell & Co advertised themselves as 'Wholesale and retail furniture warehousemen'. Their catalogue from around 1925 stated that their sizeable wholesale trade enables them to buy on a large scale and sell at reasonable prices. In addition, the company claimed that their costs were kept to a minimum as they had "no expensive window-shows and heavy shop-rent" like other similar stores in Sydney. In fact, from around 1897 to the 1970s, W W Campbell & Co was located at 249 Clarence Street, behind the main furnishing precinct on George and later Pitt Streets. Even in the late 1930s after a major extension including an additional frontage on Kent Street, the building was still referred to as a warehouse.

W W Campbell & Co was taken over by Tallerman and Company Pty Ltd in 1967 but continued trading under the Campbell name until the early 1970s.

1592 When Jack Adams was a small boy he went to a cricket match with his father, his mother having gone to spend the afternoon with a Mrs Standley who lived nearby. During the course of the match Jack's bootlace came undone, and, as his father was out on the field, he apparently decided to find his mother to tie his bootlace. As much of the land around Pinery was either scrub or partially cleared, he soon became lost, and it was not until the match concluded that it was realized that he was missing, each parent believing he was with the other. A search party was soon organized, and most able-bodied people in the area participated with hurricane lamps and buggy lamps. The search continued all night, and it was not until after day-break he was found three or four miles west of Pinery. As snakes were rather plentiful in those days and the autumn nights were bitterly cold, it was considered that he was a lucky boy to survive the ordeal.
Jack had the misfortune to lose his father when he was only 7 but his mother was a very capable and resourceful woman and she managed to keep the farm going by doing dressmaking to help pay for the farm help. jack obtained his Compulsory Certificate at 11 and with his mother and some seasonal help, farmed the land originally taken up by his grandfather.
Jack later married and had four children but tragedy struck again and when his youngest child was 2 he lost his young wife who was only 33.
A great horse lover, he bred and owned some very useful show jumpers and usually kept a rather good team of horses for farm work. He later bred A.I.S cattle with some success and showed them at country and the Royal Shows.
Jack was a public-spirited man and took an interest in most aspects of community life, serving as Trustee of Grace Plains Church, President of Pinery Cricket Club, Secretary of Pinery School Committee, Trustee and committee man of both Pinery hall and S.M. Recreation Ground. He represented Pinery Ward on Owen District Council from 1934 until his death and was a Justice of the Peace for a similar period. He spent his entire life at "Tilada", and passed away in his 72nd year. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)

B÷ttcher, Wilhelm August Christian (I2437)
 
1596 Wilhelm and Wilhelmina children have three variations of surnames.

The first variation is B÷ttcher

All the children born in Prussia have this surname.

The Second variation is Burcher,

This came about because the pronunciation of B÷ttcher is Bur-cher. I can only assume when the midwife asked their surname she spelled it as it sounded and we have Burcher.

Third variation is Butcher

I can only assume that once again the midwife spelled the surname as it sounded but her handwriting was bad and it was transcribed into the records at Butcher instead of Burcher
