Hello everyone. Not good news about Lynne. I’ve never met her but truly appreciate the effort she has put in here over the years. I hope she is able to recover.
I posted this on some other Sanders site. Obviously not this one. So here is something you may find interesting.
Hello to all you Sanders people I am son of Tom, son of Clement, son of Frederick, son of William. As you all know, William was born in Kenton, Devon, England. I was just there in Kenton in early September 2104. I very nice quiet little village. We were given access to a book entitled “Extracts of Baptisms, burials and Marriages recorded at Kenton Parish Church” (We never actually wrote down the official name, but that is what I recall) The period covered was the late 1600’s up to the mid 1800’s. A couple…

Cathy Gainge Hehe, Robert must type a bit faster than me.
Cathy Gainge Further to what Lynne has said: Thomas the third fleeter was convicted in Essex but we don’t have his birthplace. When he married, his children were given the same names as our William’s grandfather’s siblings. He died 3 years before William and Mary Ann arrived and they stayed with his son Thomas when they arrived. Thomas (convict) had a grandson, John Tebbutt, astronomer, who appeared on the $100 note and I think Uncle Rex looked a little like him.
officially my name is Neridah, I prefer Ned
Grand-Daughter of Ray Sanders..
My father Bob & I decided to ‘make a date’ for a reunion, and it looks like it is going to be larger than first expected lol, which is fantastic!!
BUT we will need to change a small detail in this case, as our place is not capable of so many.. we are not in town, and apart from a big yard, we do not have the facilities to cater to so many..
SO…. I think we may have this at the caravan park in town, on the River.. so if anyone who is coming can book into
WILLIAMS RIVER CARAVAN PARK, CLARENCE TOWN
cnr of Duke & Durham Street.
a powered site is around $25
an UNpowered site is around $15

I am the son of Ray Sanders and grandson of Clement Constant Sanders. I was born in Kingsford in 1940. I am not the Dick Sanders to whom you refer above and who apparently organised the Everson’s reunion in 1984 in Kempsey. This was told to me by Noel Everson at my aunt Jessie Boyes (nee Woodward) funeral at Kempsey on 30 Dec 2009. Noel had married Elsie Maud Sanders and told me that his grandmother was Elizabeth Grace Sanders. In the Kempsey Heritage Publications Catalogue, there are two documents: The Everson Families, by Phillip Everson, 1987 L and The Everson Story, by the Everson Reunion Committee, 1984 L. I have obtained extracts that relate to Sanders. Tracing them through I have found that Noel’s grandmother was the sister of my great grandfather Frederick.
All this though hinges on the fact that both Frederick and Elizabeth Grace were children…

My grandparents were teachers of Aborigines on Fattorini from around 1910 to 1917. Is there any information about the Island at that time. My grandparents were Arthur and Maude Terry. Elaine Morris
Had a good time today at the Mary Boulton Cottage. The committee meeting itself was interesting. Afterwards, Marge Thomas gave a talk about her life growing up at Warrell Creek (they had a church, school and a hall – only the hall is left now). Then Edna Stride told us about growing up as one of 15 kids at Eungai Creek with her brother Bill Thomas adding in bits here and there. Grandma and Grandpa Oram were sponsored out here by William and Mary Ann Sanders. Geoff Minnet is the historian there and his wife is a Sanders and Edna’s sister Ruby is married to a Sanders. Geoff said that some years back, Chris McCarthy lent him about 12 books of Sanders history which he scanned so I’ll be keeping in touch with him and finding out lots of Sanders history from him. Edna is also going to email me the talk she gave today. I also know where I’ll be doing some volunteer work next year.
Jennifer Sanders I found this document really upsetting, as it contains all of the letters written by his mum throughout the remainder of her life as she attempted to find out what had happened to her baby boy. There are so many unanswered questions and I think she must have been heartbroken by it. Bad enough that your son dies, but worse to not know how. Just so sad.
This is a military sketch of the Pozieres campaign, also provided by the lovely, lovely forum members on Desert COlumn. The red X is the starting point of HB’s platoon.
Thanks again to Harry and Bill
Provided by Forum members on Desert Column. Many thanks to Harry, Bill and several others for their wonderful assistance. The X on the top right corner is the approximate location of HB’s death and therefore final resting place. I hope this allows his mum to finally rest in peace.
