302 By 1949 they lived at 18 Ourimbah Road, Mosman - tram conductor.
I (Mary Cummins nee Griffiths) remember this sem detatched house very well, Dad would alway stop to say hello to Aunty Dolly on our way home from the beach at Queenscliffe. They had (the only one I have ever seen) a Hills Hoist that was operated by a foot pedal instead of a handle to wind it up. We used to have fun playing with it, winding it up then pull the lever to let it drop down, how it never broke is beyond me. We certainly gave it a work out.
I don't know what happened to Gordon.
Alice and Ray remained at this address until after 1980. Ray was a storeman.

305 CAMPBELL, JOSEPH (1856-1933), clergyman and scientist, was born on 13 September 1856 at St Marys, New South Wales, second son of London-born parents William Branch Campbell, storekeeper, and his wife Elizabeth Anne, née Jackson. The family lived at Lane Cove, near Sydney, and Joseph was educated at a private school and by a tutor. After several years as a schoolteacher on a family property near Prospect, he matriculated in 1877. He studied mathematics, natural science and divinity at the University of Sydney (B.A., 1880; M.A., 1882), gaining the Belmore scholarship for geology and agricultural chemistry. On 7 January 1882 at St Michael's Church, Surry Hills, Campbell married Eliza Marian Holt. Of independent means, she was the daughter of the late William Holt and a medallist in French at the junior and senior public examinations. During the leave of John Smith in 1882-83, Campbell was acting-professor of experimental physics.

From a Presbyterian background, Campbell was made a Church of England deacon in December 1880 and ordained priest on 21 June 1882. A fine preacher, he served in Sydney (1881-83), at rural Glen Innes (1883-86) and, in Sydney again, at Randwick (1889-90) and Coogee (1890-97). His wife's financial support enabled Campbell to undertake scientific and technical activities independent of his clerical stipend, and his church employment was interspersed with periods of leave when he travelled and experimented with the treatment of ores.

Beginning in 1876 Campbell wrote a number of booklets covering geography, practical photography, religion and science. First published in 1885, his Simple Tests for Minerals, or Everyman His Own Analyst ran to four editions and numerous reprints until 1936; 'Campbell's Prospector's Box', to carry out the tests, accompanied it. Appointed a commissioner for the Colonial and Indian Exhibition, London (1886), he and his family spent three years in Britain, where he preached. He was elected a fellow of the Geological Society of London, the Linnean Society of London and the Royal Institute of Chemistry. Back in Sydney, in 1893 he founded and became principal of St Nicolas's College, Randwick, for 'the proper training of mining experts', and published another successful booklet, Gold, and How to Get it (1894). Following a visit to England and North America, in 1897 the family moved to New Zealand, where Campbell held a general licence in the diocese of Auckland, while he managed a company attempting to treat refractory gold ores on Hauraki Peninsula. The work ceased in 1900 and, returning to church duties, he became vicar at St Paul's, Papanui.

Leaving New Zealand in 1903, Campbell was archdeacon and rector at Cairns, Queensland, from 1904 until 1909. In addition, he gave courses in mineralogy and mineral exploration and began active research on tropical agriculture. His wife had died in England in 1901. On 9 October 1909 at St Michael's Church, Sydney, giving his occupation as cotton planter, he married Ellen Kate Male, an 18-year-old typist from Cooktown, Queensland. Resigning his ministry, he travelled overseas to form a company to develop large-scale cotton farming, returning to Cairns in 1912. The war interfered with his cotton plans, however, and he turned to sugar cane, to paper production from pandanus and to the manufacture of native dyes, and opened a small laboratory and museum of science. In 1919, during a shipping strike and influenza epidemic, he converted his paper pulp machine to crush maize, producing much-needed flour for the district.

Campbell came back to Sydney in the 1920s and set up an advisory scientific bureau. A man of restless energy, he was perhaps by this time behaving somewhat eccentrically. From 1926, through his friend Bishop L. B. Radford , Campbell had a series of relieving positions in churches in southern New South Wales. He died on 17 October 1933 at Barmedman and was buried in the local cemetery with Anglican rites. His wife, their three children, and the two daughters from his first marriage survived him.

320 Cecil Alfred Arthur Faint born 15 Jan 1910 at Gundagai New South Wales. He was the husband of Alma Rose Neal and they were married on 25th January 1930 at St Peters. He did compulsory military service in 1929 and on the 22nd May 1941 at the age of 31 enlisted in the RAAF as a motor Transport driver. His address at the time of enlistment was 50 Tramway Street Mascot New South Wales.
On 1.3.1942 he was posted to Darwin and remained their during the Japanese Air Attacks. He also served at Parkes, Tocumwall Orange and Port Moresby.
On the 10th March 1944 he embarked from Australia for Morotai and joined the 14 Repair and Servicing Unit on Morotai. The Australian Airfield Construction Squadrons were known as "The Flying Shovels".
The Morotai airfield operation was clearly crucial, for its bases would permit the RAAF to support the planned landings. Three Battalions arrived earlier and their camp site consisted mainly off foxholes. The inevitable rain soon began. It developed at once that for more material then usual would have to be removed. Then Morotai coral proved unexpectedly hard, thus aggravating the hauling problem when there were already too few vehicles.
On 1st January 1945 Cecil was promoted to Sargeant.
One of the battalion commanders afterwards wrote that almost all the details ahd been irritating. Nails for example, were almost unobtainable. They had continuous, infuriating mechanical and technical problems. In addition to the usual sicness, sprains and back injuries, the men had suffered particularly from skin disorders on Morotai.
Yet, he added that the construction on Morotai had been carefully controlled and directed and that a good spirit had prevailed. Morotai acquired the reputation of being the most efficient engineering job ever conducted tin the South West Pacific Area to that date.
He was discharged from the RAAF on the 5th December 1945
Cecil died on the 22nd September 1995, late of San Remo New South Wales, aged 85 years

331 Charles was a fond father and well-read man. He once challenged his sons to find a word he could not spell and he would give them a shilling! But they could never find one. He also played the violin. He had never seen anyone play one and so held it rather strangely: against his chest. He taught himself to play and often played for dances. He was killed on the farm when a horse he was tending in the stall was frightened by a chicken. The horse reared and landed with both hooves on Charles's head.

REGISTER March 31 1919 FATAL KICK FROM HORSE; PORT PIRIE March 28

Mr Charles Henley Smith, a prominent farmer of the Warnertown District aged 48 years while standing beside an unbroken horse, was kicked in the lower part of the head by the animal. He was conveyed to the Port Pirie Hospital where he died on Thursday. The deceased was a son of the late Mr John Smith of Warnertown. In addition to a widow, the late Mr Smith left two (there were actually three) sons. He was a prominent member of the Methodist Church, and an enthusiastic lover of sports. He was also a prominent member of Warnertown Branch of the Liberal Union, of which for some time he occupied the position of secretary.

DEATH NOTICE: 31/3/1919

Smith: On 27th March at Port Pirie Hospital, result of accident, Charles Henley loving husband of Lily May and father of Cedric, Leo and Rex and the eldest son of Mrs John Smith Warnertown aged 48, Peace Perfect Peace.

Lilly then came to Adelaid to live. The twins had come down to school previously and Sid was left to manage the farm. Later it was sold to Percy Davies. Sid's brother-in-law who lived on the farm immediately behind. Perc still lives there.

The Smith Family (Charles sen. and Sophia - ne Quaife) migrated from Cranbrook, Kent in 1839 on the "Singapore". Both his parents and his idiot brother were dead and his sister had already married his wife's brother and migrated to Australia. These two (Rev. Barzillai and Maria Quaife) sponsored Charles and Sophia. There was therefore little to keep him in England. However he left behind three sisters. Charles sen. was a butcher in Currie Street and then took up land at Reynella. Their young daughter Sophia died soon after they arrived and was buried at Holy Trinity. His son Joh was a very sick man and went north possibly in search of a drier climate and settled in Warnertown in the 1870's. The property was know as "Hillsview". John was very ill and died about a year after they arrived; he would not even have seen his first crop harvested and would have had difficulty clearing the land site. The outdoor stone storage tank (mentioned in the stories) still exists, not far from the old house site. The "new" house is not very different today from what it was when it was first built by Charles jnr. As a child Charles jnr would have had to grow up very quickly to help his mother. Sarah Jane Smith (nee Henley), with the farm. Later he and Lilly farmed the property for his mother.

The Smith story is told in the book "They who came from the colonists" by Gwenda Mann, a copy of which may be found in the South Australian Genealogy Society Library, but the John Smith branch has been omitted. Details of this family are available from the author of that book o9r from the compiler of this book. The Henley story is being written by Royce Mew of Broken Hill (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
