M, b. circa 1860
  • Herman Gustave Freeck was born circa 1860.1
  • Conditional approval for Herman Gustave Freeck's selection of landwas given on 24 November 1888. He selected 80 acres of land at Ravensbourne. "For the agricultural township farms adjoining the village of Ravensbourne there was great competition, many of the portions being applied for from four to ten times over. The ballot had to be resorted to in no less than 50 cases; this, with the refunding of the amounts paid by the unsuccessful applicants, necessarily occupied  a deal of time, and it was not till half-past 6 O'clock that the business was concluded, and the court closed. By 7 o'clock the whole of the refundments had been paid over to 115 applicants. The 76 portions adjoining the village of Ravensbourne, granted at the land court, were  apportioned among 62 selectors, so there is every probability of the village settlement of Ravensbourne proving a success. The total area granted at the court was 5025 acres among 68 applicants."2
  • He appeared on the Electoral Roll in 1905 living at Ravensbourne. He was a farmer.3

Abraham French1

M, b. 23 May 1819
  • Abraham French was baptized on 23 May 1819 in Merriott, Somerset.2
  • He was the son of Jacob French and Hannah Osborne.1
  • His marriage, at 19 years and 6 months, to Maria Winsor was registered in the December 1838 Quarter, Somerset Registration District.3
  • Abraham French and Maria Winsor appeared on the census of 7 June 1841 in Haslebury Plucknett, Somerset. Abraham was noted as the 24 year old head of the family, an agricultural labourer living with his wife Maria French aged 25; Ann Frances French aged 4; John French aged 1; Emily Winsor aged 1; and Susan Winsor aged 20 a glover (possibly Maria's sister and her daughter.)4
  • On 9 August 1841 the Ilchester gaol records showed that an Abraham FRENCH aged 24, born Merriott, last abode Haselbury, was admitted to the gaol.5,6
  • Abraham French and Maria Winsor appeared on the census of 7 June 1841 in Goar Knap Gate, Yeovil, Somerset. Abraham is shown as a 30 year old labourer born Merriott. He is living with his wife Maria 30 born Sutton; and a Elizabeth Frances (Ann Frances?) age 14, nurse child; born Sutton and Frederick John 11 an errand boy born Haselbury; and Sarah Ann aged 7 born Merriott. Abraham's brother John an agricultural labourer & carter aged 20 born Middle Chinnock was also living with the family as was their brother William, aged 19, an agricultural labourer, born Hazelbury.7,8
  • Compilers Note:- Just what happened to Abraham is a bit of a mystery. He was not on the 1861 census. By 1871 his wife Maria and brother John were living as husband and wife. Perhaps he has another run in with the law and was in prison. There is a death of an Abraham French registered in the Clifton District of Gloucestershire for December 1851.

Charles Edward French1,2

M, b. 20 July 1886, d. 1976
  • Charles Edward French was born on 20 July 1886 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia.3,4
  • He was the son of John French and Elizabeth Ann Bailey.
  • On 26 July 1890 Charles was involved in an accident as reported by the Maitland Mercury -" (Tenterfield Star, July 26). An accident which might have resulted fatally took place in Rouse-street on Wednesday afternoon about half-past 5 o'clock. A little boy named Charles Edward French, and only 4 years old, was running about in front of his father's shop, Mr. French's, hairdresser, when the lad carrying the mail for Tenterfield station came down the street at a sharp trot, and rode right over the poor little fellow, knocking him down. He was at once picked up and carried into his father's house, where it was found that although he had serious bruises about the thigh and was badly shaken no bones were broken. The parents applied hot water ban- dages and other domestic remedies, and the fol- lowing day the child seemed fairly recovered, although the injured limb was stiff and sore. The boy who rode over him is usually very careful, and we hope will for the future continue so.5
  • Charles Edward French enlisted in the Military on 26 August 1914 in Randwick, Sydney. He joined H Company 2nd Battalion. He was a baker, 28 years old and listed his father J French of Boase Street, Tenterfield as his next of kin. He was 5'8", 11 stone 10 lbs with dark complection and hair and grey eyes. His religion was Presbyterian. He fought in the Middle East including serving at Gallipoli in 1915, and was discharged on 23 March 1916 on medical grounds. He then joined the Special AIF on 17 June 1916.6
  • At the age of 30 years and 23 days, Charles Edward French married Effie McGeorge, daughter of James Samuel McGeorge and Joan Dage, on 12 August 1916 in Manly, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Details from the marriage certificate appear on his War Record. They were married by William Henry Young on 12 August 1916 at Manly. Effie was the 26 year old daughter of James McGeorge a postal inspector. She worked as a domestic, living in Manly. Charles was 30 living in Newcastle son of John French, a hairdresser.7,6
  • Sometime after their marriage Effie went back to Scotland (28 Windsor Street Edinburgh) to nurse her mother. Charles' address remained as Logan Street, Tenterfield. His hair colour was now noted as grey, not dark. He was sent to London. Just before his discharge in 1919 his wife Effie wrote to Charles' captain in London asking that Charles be discharged in England so she could stay with her mother in Scotland who was suffering from a heart condition. He was finally discharged on 4 December 1919 in London having satisfied the Australian military that he would be given work in Scotland by his father in law, James McGeorge.8
  • In March 1918 Charles and Effie had a family photo with their child Effie.9
  • On 2 November 1919 Effie wrote a letter from her mother's home at 28 Hudson Street, Edinburgh to Captain Dowden, of London. It stated:-
    "Dear Sir
    Owing to the very serious condition of my mother's health I have had to leave Australia where I have been residing for the last nine years. I arrived in Scotland four weeks ago.
    My mother is quite incapacitated from work, therefore my services are required here in her home for many years.
    This is my reason for not returning to Austalia, and if you see your way to give my husband his discharge here, it will save us a good deal of unnecessary expense, and worry, as he would have to return to Britain on the first available steamer, if he has to return to Australia."
    Yours sincerely - Effie French.10
  • On 6 November 1919 James McGeorge (Effie's father) wrote a letter to the Army regarding employing his son-in-law Charles French.
    It was written from Edinburgh Postal District to The Commonwealth Authorities, London and stated:-
    "Sirs
    I have much pleasure in assuring you that I will undertake to guarantee Mr Chas E French suitable employment provided that he obtains his discharge from the AIF. Yours Faithfully - Jas McGeorge, Asst Inspector of Postmen?"11
