Gravestone of Joseph and Sarah Jane Staines, Memerambi Cemetery.
  • Joseph Staines was born on 14 July 1851 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.1,2,3,4
  • He was the son of Samuel Staines and Eliza Sydie.
  • On 3 August 1851 Joseph Staines lived in Brougham Place, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.2
  • He was baptized on 3 August 1851 in Parish of St James, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. His parents were living at Brougham Place at the time and his father Samuel was a blacksmith. The ceremony was performed by Chas F D Priddle.2,5,4
  • On 5 October 1853,Joseph Staines's father, Samuel Staines died in Parish of Camperdown, Sydney, at age 34. The cause of Samuel's death was a bit of a mystery. Betty Staines notes make reference to "Great grandma lived with the Judge who was very nice to her when workmen met with accident". Even though Betty lists the reason for Eliza's death, she only hinted at Samuel being involved in some sort of accident. Samuel's tombstone shows his death date as 7 October, his Death Certificate shows 5 October. The cause of death is not given on the certificate

    The following notice appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on 5th October 1853 "FUNERAL.—The friends of the late Mr. Samuel Staines, Farrier, are respectfully invited to attend his funeral, to move from his late residence, Flood's Buildings, Elizabeth-street, tomorrow (Friday) morning, at a quarter to 8 o'clock. JAMES CURTIS. Hunter-street, October 6. N.B.—No circulars will be issued."6,7

  • On 18 January 1856,Joseph Staines's mother, Eliza Sydie died in Parish of Camperdown, Sydney, at age 45.

The following notice appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday 19 January 1856.
    " FUNERAL.-The Friends of the deceased, Mrs. ELIZA STAINES, are invited to attend her funeral; to move from her late residence, Elizabeth street, THIS (Saturday.)9,7"
  • Samuel Staines was taken into the care of Elizabeth Jenkins . Before Samuel's mother died she made arrangements for her children to be looked after. Notes made by Betty Staines read:- "Jenkins's to have Sam and he begged for Joe to go with him. They lived near Manly and taught him (assume him is Joe who was only 6 when mother died, Sam at 9 or 10 would be able to read and write to some extent) to read but hadn't taught him to write. When Census taken of those able to read and write then they helped him to learn to write but not well - hard life but good to them - oldest Miss J eccentric, didn't like anyone in love, whole of Jenkins estate left in her name - brother University man, hard old bachelor, family entertained Sydney society, niece Miss Martha , Miss Elizabeth got strange and crazed about end of world and prophecies at Dee Why. Big law suit about Jenkins's property. Will disputed , 2 sisters living at Balmain"
    It seems that Samuel was well looked after by the Jenkins sisters and well educated because he became an engineer.9
  • In 1870 Joseph Staines was a member of the Volunteer Rifles. According to notes by Betty Staines Joe was apprenticed as a plumber. He wasn't any good at it so he went home again. At 19 he joined the Volunteer Rifles. Apparently he was very small for his age, but with regular meals and exercises he began to grow. The pay was poor but he started to save money to buy himself out, a sum of twenty pounds. However, when the rifles were disbanded each man received twenty pounds. By then he had met Sarah Jane Crawford and she had saved money too and instead of Joe going to the Sandwich Islands to be with his brother Sam he and Sarah were married.
    There is a Joseph Staines listed in the Greville's Post Office Directory 1872. He is a servant at Long Reef, Pitt Water Rd, Barranjoey (27 miles north of Sydney) for the Jenkin family Charles, a mariner, John, Phillip and Elizabeth.9,10

Was opened by the Coroner and adjourned, was resumed at the Central Police Office, on view of the body of Samuel Staines, then lying dead; William Henry Cave, Benjamin Cooper Lancaster, and C Doyle being in custody. Mr. Nichols and Mr. Shuttleworth watched the proceedings on the part of the persons in charge. From the evidence it appeared that all those parties, with others, were in a public house, kept by Mr. James Teare, on Monday evening, and were playing dominoes, on friendly terms. Some jocular altercation taking place between Cave and a man named Prevost, Staines, who was very tipsy, got up and said he would take Prevost's part. Staines and Cave then fought a little, but not in earnest; and Staines twice afterwards began fighting again with Cave, Cave evincing nor desire himself to fight. In the third fight, in which Lancaster and Doyle voluntarily acted as seconds, Staines fell from over reaching himself, and struck his head against the leg of the table. At the request of Mr. Teare, Cave then left the house. Staines said he was not hurt, and would fight Cave for £10 next day. Staines went home some time after, and his manner appeared strange to his wife, but thinking he was only very tipsy, she let him lie on the sofa until he fell off, when she tried to get him upstairs to bed, but failed; Staines was again laid on the sofa, but awoke his wife some time after by falling off again, and when she came to him he appeared hurt. She then sent for a doctor, who found him suffering from concussion o the brain. Staines continued to get worse, and died on Wednesday morning. The post mortem examination showed bruises and contusions o the head and other parts of the body, and effusion on the brain had followed one of the contusions. The jury returned a verdict of death by violence, but without evidence to show who inflicted it. The prisoners were then all discharged. - Abridged from the Herald, Oct 12."16

  • On 18 January 1856,Samuel Staines's mother, Eliza Sydie died in Parish of Camperdown, Sydney, at age 45.

The following notice appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday 19 January 1856.
    " FUNERAL.-The Friends of the deceased, Mrs. ELIZA STAINES, are invited to attend her funeral; to move from her late residence, Elizabeth street, THIS (Saturday.)4,2"
  • Samuel Staines was taken into the care of Elizabeth Jenkins . Before Samuel's mother died she made arrangements for her children to be looked after. Notes made by Betty Staines read:- "Jenkins's to have Sam and he begged for Joe to go with him. They lived near Manly and taught him (assume him is Joe who was only 6 when mother died, Sam at 9 or 10 would be able to read and write to some extent) to read but hadn't taught him to write. When Census taken of those able to read and write then they helped him to learn to write but not well - hard life but good to them - oldest Miss J eccentric, didn't like anyone in love, whole of Jenkins estate left in her name - brother University man, hard old bachelor, family entertained Sydney society, niece Miss Martha , Miss Elizabeth got strange and crazed about end of world and prophecies at Dee Why. Big law suit about Jenkins's property. Will disputed , 2 sisters living at Balmain"
    It seems that Samuel was well looked after by the Jenkins sisters and well educated because he became an engineer.4
  • Between 2 July 1868 and 29 July 1870 Samuel's name appeared as the NG(?) on several Funeral Notices placed in The Sydney Morning Herald by the Loyal Rose of Australia Lodge.5
  • In 1870 Samuel failed to attend a summons for theft. The Police Gazette reported:- ".A warrant has been issued by the Sydney Bench for the arrest of Samuel Staines, charged with disobeying a summons for feloniously stealing the sums of 31 pounds 11s. 2d. and 20 pounds 6s. 10d.the property of Edward McCamly, William F Ilinchy and James Irvine, the trustees of the Loyal Rose of Australia Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Manchester Unity. Staines is about 25 years of age, 5 feet 6 inches high, dark whiskers worn all around, dark moustache, tooth out in front upper jaw; dressed in a suit of black and black California hat; a farrier; has a brother a drover in the neighbourhood of Singleton, also a brother at Long Reef, Manly beach." Whether or not Samuel was convicted of theft, is not known. However, by the early 1870's he had moved to the Sandwich Islands to commence his career in the sugar industry. According to family heaesay he had a successful crushing mill in Hawaii. Perhaps Miss Jenkins had helped to fund this enterprise. His brother Joseph was expected to join him, but instead used the money he had saved to marry Sarah Crawford in 1873.6,4
  • Samuel returned to Australia about 1879, and commenced to set up a crushing mill at Youngman Creek in the Richmond area. His brothers Joseph and William were to be partners in the mill. Joseph and Sarah had already moved to the Richmond area, where Joseph had obtained land and cultivated sugar cane.4,7
  • On 16 October 1880 the Northern Star reported - " I see also that Mr J Staine is making good preparations at Youngman Creek, there is to ba a large mill there."8
  • On 3 October 1881 George Towner wrote is his diary "went and signed for planting cane for Staines".9
  • On 8 October 1881 The Northern Star reported " I shall in my next report be able to give you more particulars respecting Mr Staines' mill.10
  • In November 1881 The Northern Star reports "A mile from Alstonville a Victorian company is about to put up a mill, all the machinery of which is to be of the newest and most approved description. The company has arranged with the surrounding farmers for the growing of cane, and intend laying down tramways in all directions for its conveyance to their mill. They have leased about 500 acres for 17 years. Amongst the company are the Hon James Balflour, Messers Robert Harper, J M Davies and the Rev J G Turner. A few miles distant a similar mill is being erected by Mr S Staines who, with two brothers, had taken up something like 2000 acres of land. Messers Staines have, I understand, given up a prosperous cane crushing business in Honolulu to come here, after first satisfying themselves as to its capacities as a sugar growing country."11
  • On 31 December 1881 The Northern Star reported. " I believe Mr Staines of the Big Scrub, has purchased a farm from Mr Harley of South Lismore. I believe that gentleman's intention is securing a site for a sugar mill. The canes that are growing now on the said land is something wonderful, especially the Gray Fiji, wishing Mr Staines every success in his enterprise."12
  • At the age of 34 years, Samuel Staines married Emily Staff, daughter of James Samuel Staff and Mary Ann Chaplin, in 1882 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia. Ambrose Crawford rode his bike from Teven to Tenterfield to attend the wedding. He took the train back next day.13,14
  • On 28 February 1882 George Towner wrote in his diary "At home half day. Went and got Staines cart and took cane from Fosters to Edwards."9
  • On 1 April 1882 an extract from an article in News of the Country read:-
    "Our cane here looks splendid this year, I think the best of any year yet. We have been blessed with beautiful showers, grass is everywhere abundant. Mr S Staines is making great headway with his mill at Youngman Creek, he is the most enterprising man I have ever heard of, nothing seems to trouble him."
  • On 25 July 1882 George Towner wrote:- "Started brushing for Staines . Meeting at night about school."9
  • Samuel Staines died on 1 April 1884 in Granville, New South Wales, Australia, at age 37. He died at the home of his father-in-law James Staff.
    After the death of Samuel senior (who died about one month after the birth of Samuel Everett) Emily returned to live with her mother in Sydney. She married John Holland on 13 February 1895.15,7
  • He was buried in 1884 in St John's Cemetery, Parramatta, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Section 1 Row K.16
  • On 3 May 1884 the following notice was placed in The Sydney Morning Herald - "ALL ACCOUNTS owing by tho late SAMUEL STAINES, Sugar Planter, of Lismore, Richmond River, must be rendered in duplicate to the executors, No. 11, Hunter Street, Sydney, on or before MAY 15 next.

  • On 1 April 1884,Samuel Everett Staines's father, Samuel Staines died in Granville, New South Wales, Australia, at age 37. He died at the home of his father-in-law James Staff.

This was not the case, as he married in England, and moved to Canada with his wife and daughter. Before moving to Canada he returned to Australia for a visit with his wife and daughter.
