405 Death Certificate Registration number 1928/003716.
I found out that the family (Wilhelm, Wilhelmina with Mary 5y.John 3y,
William 1y. and Rudolph - infant) have arrived as "free nominees" on the
"Bullimba" ship on the 22nd of Aug. 1887.
Free nominees means, that somebody nominated them who were Australian
citizens already. Now there were "Bottchers" in Brisbane already by 1890,
but I could not link them so far. A prospective company could have been
nominating them as well, promising work- in that case the immigrants usually
had a kind of a contract to stay in the original state as they arrived in
for about 3 years. It would be good to find out who nominated them.

OBITUARY from "PINNAROO AND BORDER TIMES"

THE LATE MR C.F. HAWKINS
As briefly noted in our last issue, the death of Mr C.F. Hawkins created a profound impression and a gloom throughout the Malle. Tragic in its suddenness the passing of a personality who carried the admiration and esteem of the whole community, and whose special attainments and culture were directed to the advancement of all interests and the betterment of social conditions, was regarded as one of the greatest blows yet experienced by the community. Duty to the people of the district in which he lived under the happiest associations, called him to Melbourne as a delegate of the Ngallo Branch to the Conference of the Farmers' Union. Passing through Adelaide on this journey and which at the time, beyond a heavy cold, Mr. Hawkins was in his usual good spirits, he attended the Conference on the morning and afternoon. Late the same night he was taken suddenly from which he never regained consciousness and passed away within an hour, the cause of death being Uremia. The deceased who was 47 years of age, was buried in the Brighton Cemetery (presumably Vic) on Thursday. Mr Jack Hawkins, a son, who was living in Melbourne, being the only member of his family present, time did not permit of Mrs Hawkins and her daughter, Miss Francie , being present.

The late Mr. Hawkins was an old resident of Warnertown, (S.A.) and was for some time a minister of the Methodist Church. A greater part of the intervening period he engaged in farming taking up a block in the parish of Ngallo, seven years ago,. Indifferent health necessitated a retirement from his work about 2 years ago when he accepted the position of teacher to the local school where he gained the respect of parents and the love of the children. Educational matters and research work of many interesting branches were followed later and the deep interest and thoroughness in botanical studies of the Mallee flora gained the attention and appreciation of the State authorities. A recent address at Pinaroo on the plants of the Mallee (which unfortunately was given under unfavourable weather conditions) testified to a wide knowledge of this subject and students' appreciation of systematically directing those studies to a definite purpose. It is perhaps not generally known that the late Mr. Hawkins has an extremely interesting collection of local weeds, the greater part of which he had identified and catalogued, and that during his investigations of plant life, he discovered new plants unknown to Australian flora. A lengthy list of plants, shrubs etc, including an interesting article appeared in these columns a few months back. All these and other scholastic studies were being continued up to the time of his death which cut short, what had every promise of a brighter and still more successful career in bigger spheres. It was probable that Mr Hawkins would have shortly taken up the mastership of a city or an important suburban school. As speaker and conversationalist the deceased was engaging and urbane, tolerant in his views but plain and honest in his convictions. To him human nature in its social and political aspect was an engrossing subject and his remarks or writings on this and many other topics always commanded the greatest respect. His facial pen and literary ability were responsible for many valuable contributions to the press, not the least was a brilliant address on "School and Character" before the Murrayville District Teachers Association held last March. Speaking of the lure of the City and in praise of the Country he said; "In nature study especially can this spirit be developed; children are made familiar with the names, habits and marks of the plants and flowers, and insects that daily surround them. The sympathetic teacher can also invest the whole subject with charm and romance, that there will be developed in the child a real love for the country and its dumb inhabitants. Thus there will be reared not only another lover of his country, but a lover of country life in that country. This is one of the best national assets a country can have."

Our columns have frequently been brightened in the days of adversity and since, by a robust and inspiring confidence of the Mallee Through contributions from the late Mr Hawkins. His outlook, when the clouds did not show the silver streak, was ever cheerful and his reasoning and deductions always sound and logical. He was conversant with the days of hard fighting, of physical and mental strain that engendered pessimism; but all through this great battle, which has now been happily ended, his words brought optimism to the local press - the smile of a "smile when everything went dead wrong" - was characteristic of a cheerful and inspiring nature. It is only echoing the true sentiments of the people on both sides of the Border to say that the community has suffered a heavy loss in the death of this esteemed resident and that heartfelt sympathy go with the wife and family in their sad bereavement. The feeling of the people of Ngallo was expressed by a resident who came intimately in contact with the deceased: "The news", said he, "came as a severe shock to us all. Nothing but good can be said about him: he was a true friend to the district, admired and respected by everyone and to the school children the loss will be severely felt."

DEATH NOTICE: On the 26th September, at the Residence of Mr R.D. Speed, Derrinall, 24 Lewisham Road, Windsor, Clement Friend Hawkins, the beloved husband of Minnie E Hawkins, of Pinnaroo, S.A. the loving father of Miss Francie and Mr Jack Hawkins, aged 47.

Friend matriculated from Melbourne University with Englis Honours, took an Arts and Divinity Course at Queens College (Melbourne University) and after a 7 year Divinity course was ordained at Wesley Church, Melbourne, Dr Fitchett (the well known author) delivering the charge. He was a keen college sportsman, holding triple colours at Wesley College in football, cricket and rowing. He also rowed in the first university eight at Queens College on the Yarra. He was trained as a state school teacher under Mr Wallace Clobb, B.A, (Sydney). For three years he was leader of the Zion City Movement in Adelaide. He entered Wesley College in 1889 when he was nearly 19. This was not uncommon in those days. Boys who wished to enter teaching or the ministry spent one or two years at church schools (the only secondary schools at the time) to qualify for matriculation.

Marriage details obtained from South Australian Marriages, Registrations 1842 - 1916 book 178 page 49 district code Cla. Robert was 25 yrs old and Eliza was 22yrs old when they were married.

Eliza, about three, moved with her parents and brothers Friend and Godfrey to the Hundred of Napperby when new leases of land were offered in 1874. (Also at this time Thomas H. Angel, William Smith and James Holman were among the names of families who took up land in the area. In 1875-6 when the railway was put through from Port Pirie to Gladstone, a new town, Warnertown, was surveyed and in 1877 town allottments were offered; the Post Office and store opened in 1878, The Education Department built a school for 40 pupils and a teacher's residence for 730 pounds in about 1878. Eliza, called "Sis" by her family, would have attended the Warnertown school from the opening day as she was by then 7 years old. On leaving school when would have been very helpful to her mother as there was a family of seven children. Eliza would have been at school at the same time as her future husband, Robert. They married when she was 22 years old and she would have been well skilled in home management, including gardening, milking cows, child-care and needlework. By the time the fifth child was born at home (Nelshaby), Eliza's health was failing,. She must have realized she was dying as she wrote a letter from Adelaide (maybe from hospital) to her daughter Effie (then aged 10) asking her to look after her brothers, especially 'Sonny', her pet name for her son Cyril. Eliza died at home (Nelshaby) aged 35. It was Crystal Brook Show Day and her son Leland (then aged about 8.5) had to ride a horse from home to Crystal Brook Show grounds to find the Hawkins family and inform them. Ethel told her daughter Joan Mebberson of the great grief the family suffered and the long time it took her (Ethel) to accept the great loss of her beloved "Sis" (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
