MELANCHOLY BOAT ACCIDENT-On Sunday last, a party consisting of Mr. Richard McDonald, Mr. William Wood, of Hunter Street, Mrs Wood, and Mrs Noblett, started from the Gas Company’s Wharf, on a boating party down the harbour, in a boat belonging to Mr. McDonald; the boat is thirteen feet in length, and carried sprit and fore-sail; shortly after 2 pm they arrived at Clarke’s Island, where they dines; after dinner they went a short distance from the island, for the purpose of fishing, after sometime the ladies expressed a shih to return home, when Mr. McDonald got the mast up, an pulled, up the kellick, before putting up the sprit, Mr. McDonald climbed about eighteen inches up the mast, for the purpose of disentangling a small flag at the top – simultaneously the ladies rose from their seats, and immediately the boat capsized, precipitating the whole party into the water, the boat filling in an instant, and several times turning over and over. Mrs Noblett caught hold of Mr. McDonald, who sustained her in the water until assistance was rendered by Mr. Dobson, who heard a shout from Clarke’s island as he was on his way to Sydney, and put back to see what was the matter. When the boat overset, Mr. Wood caught his wife’s clothes with one hand and the boat with the other, until being much exhausted, he clenched his wife’s hand as firmly as he could to the stern of the boat, and swam to shore, where his calling attracted Mr. Dobson’s attention to the scene of the catastrophe. On Mr. Dobson’s arrival, he found Mr. McDonald on the keel of the boat, holding up Mrs Noblett by the chin. Mr. Dobson took them into his boat, and on his way to the island to take in Mr. Wood he saw Mrs Wood under the surface of the water, and picked her up, but she appeared to be perfectly dead; her head was under water, and her clothes in the form of a balloon about her. Having taken Mr. Wood on board, Mr. Dobson made for Darling Point, where Mr. Lingard resides, and efforts were made to resuscitate Mrs Noblett and Mrs Wood, but without avail; no symptoms of remaining life in either having shown itself after being taken from the water. The bodies were then removed from Mr. Lingard's to Rushcutter Bay, where Dr Shanks was called in, but the unfortunate ladies were past all recovery. An inquest was yesterday held on the bodies, and a verdict of accidental drowning was returned by the jury. Mrs Noblett was about twenty-eight years of age, and Mrs Woods some three years younger.

Frances Elizabeth Staines

F, b. circa 1845, d. 15 August 1866
  • Frances Elizabeth Staines was born circa 1845 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. No record can be found of her birth but her Death Certificate lists her place of birth as Sydney and her age as 21 in 1866. Notes held by Betty Staines indicate that Frances died in 1860, but civil records show 1866 which would make her two years older than Samuel, the eldest son.1,2
  • She was the daughter of Samuel Staines and Eliza Sydie.
  • On 5 October 1853,Frances Elizabeth 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.

  • On 18 January 1856,Frances Elizabeth 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.)2,4"

  • Frances Elizabeth Staines died on 15 August 1866 in Glebe, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Family hearsay has it that Frances drowned in a boating accident while sailing on the harbour with friends. Such and accident did occur, but the Frances Staines involved was this Frances aunt, sister of Samuel and Thomas. This Frances' death certificate indicates that she died of Pulmonary Consumption, and that she had been receiving treatment from a Dr Gilhooly for 2 years before her death. At the time of her death Frances was living in Glebe Road. The informant was Fred Miller most likely a son of the Miller family who took Frances in after her parent's death. Her death was announced in the Empire newspaper:-" STAINES —On August 15, of consumption, at the residence of
    Mr. Miller, Glebe-road, Frances Elizabeth Staines aged 21 years."2,1,6
  • The following article appeared in the The Sydney Morning Herald on 16 August 1866. " FUNERAL.—The Friends of Miss FRANCES ELIZABETH STAINES are invited to attend her Funeral; to move from the residence of Mr. Miller, Glebe Road, at 2.45 p.m. THIS DAY. JOHN HILL, Undertaker."7
  • She was buried on 16 August 1866 in Camperdown Cemetery, Sydney. Witnesses to her burial were Richard S Rinner and John James Higley.

    The following inscription on her headstone was copied by Auntie Bess. (Sarah Elizabeth Woods (nee Staines))

Joseph Staines

M, b. 14 July 1851, d. 7 November 1921

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 26 April 1855 a list of subscribers to the PATRIOTIC FUND was printed in "The Sydney Morning Herald". Amongst them were members of the Congregational Sabath School in Pitt Street, Sydney. Fanny Staines donated 5 shillings and six pence, William Staines 4 shillings and 9 pence, Joseph Staines 4 shillings and three pence and Samuel Staines 4 shilling and 6 pence.8
  • On 18 January 1856,Joseph Staines's mother, Eliza Sydie died in Parish of Camperdown, Sydney, at age 45. Family hearsay has it that Eliza accidentally swallowed a pin, and knew she was going to die. She arranged for the children to be looked after by friends and acquaintances. 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
  • On 30 September 1873 Joseph Staines lived in Manly Beach, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.11
  • At the age of 22 years, 2 months and 16 days, Joseph Staines married Sarah Jane Crawford, daughter of William Crawford and Margaret Maxwell, on 30 September 1873 in St Peters Church, Sydney, New South Wales. . Joseph and Sarah Jane were married at St Peter's Church of England by the Rev G H Morten (Canon). William Crawford (Sarah's brother) and M A Elliott (old friend from N Ireland) were witnesses.11
  • Joseph Staines and Sarah Jane Crawford moved to Duck Creek in 1873.Joseph grew sugar cane and went into partnership with his brother Samuel in the Rous Sugar Mill.9
  • On 15 February 1877 Joseph made a conditional purchase of 50 acres of land at Rous county and another 100 acres was selected on 20 June 1877.12
  • On 25 June 1883,Joseph Staines's son, Robert Staines was born in Teven, New South Wales. His father's occupation was given as sugar planter. A Mr Galloway was a witness to his birth.9,13
  • In 1885 Joseph Staines was a Cane Farmer at Teven and co-owner of the Rous Sugar Mill, Lismore.14
  • On 14 February 1885 Mr Staines departed Ballina on the Ship Tomki.15
  • On 26 February 1885 Mr Staines arrived at Lismore from Sydney on the Tomki.16
