Louis Francis Albig Werner1

M, b. 27 August 1859, d. 6 May 1938

The Werner family- from the left: Hannah, Louis, Frances, Elizabeth nursing Lucy, Sidney, Roseanna (sitting), Edward and Lillian sitting on the ground. Albert and James are missing. Taken c 1907 perhaps in Toowoomba.
  • Louis Francis Albig Werner was born on 27 August 1859 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia. Louis' birth certificate shows his father, Louis Werner was a 33 year old saddler born Germany and his mother, Rosina Albig, 26 was also born in Germany. It also shows that Louis and Rosina had a son (cannot find any record of this son) and daughter (Hannah) both living at the time of Louis' birth. Mrs Reid was present at his birth.1,2,3
  • He was the son of Louis H R Werner and Magdalena (Rosina) Albig.
  • Louis Francis Albig Werner was almost killed by lightening when it struck the home of his parents Louis H R Werner and Magdalena (Rosina) Albig on 27 December 1861the Werner home was struck by lightning, rendering a young man [perhaps John Bonhag, Rosina's nephew] unconscious, almost hitting a baby in a cradle [Francis Louis Albig Werner who would have been 16 months old], and causing considerable damage to the house.
    The Maitland Mercury reported the incident :- " SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS - This town was visited by a very severe thunderstorm on the night of Thursday and morning of Friday last. The storm commenced about five o'clock on Thursday afternoon, and continued with great violence until nine o'clock, when an abatement of a few hours took place, the heavens being partially clear, and perfect quiet reigning all around. However, another storm came up from the west ward about three o'clock on Friday morning, which exceeded in violence the preceding one, and startled the inhabitants from their repose. Indeed, such a severe storm has not been experienced in this neighbourhood for a considerable period. The only damage to the township which we have learned occurred at the house of Mr. Louis Werner, which was struck by the electric fluid and sustained material injury. The chimney was the attracting medium, which was literally destroyed, and the lightening, passing down both sides of the fireplace, where the wood is reduced to splinters, tore up the earthen floor and raised a quantity of dust which almost smothered the inmates. It then found its way into another chamber where a young man slept, striking him so that he lay insensible for a considerable time. The electricity then seems to have scattered about the building in all direction, causing the greatest confusion, when it ultimately found a good conductor in a cross-cut saw which was suspended from one of the rafters. The rafter and a number of the shingles of the roof were thus destroyed, and then the work of destruction ceased.
    It may be deemed very providential than none of the inmates were fatally hurt, as three separate rooms were occupied by them. A young sleeping child in a cradle had a very narrow escape, as its head was within a foot of the cross-cut saw which conducted the electric fluid though the roof. Others took place on Friday afternoon and Sunday."4
  • Louis Francis Albig Werner witnessed the marriage of James William French and Mary Jane O'Brien on 1 December 1883 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia; Mary Jane O'Brien was a widow and was aged 34 years at the time of her marriage to James.

  • Between 1908 and 1910 Louis Francis Albig Werner and Elizabeth French lived in Archibald Street, Cocks Estate, Toowoomba, Queensland. Elizabeth's sister-in-law, wife of George French gave birth to twins at the Werner home in 1908.12,13
  • In 1913 he was a labourer at Mount Brisbane Station. They most likely lived at the Station. While they were at the Brisbane Station, their daughter Hannah married.6

  • In October 1922 Louis and Elizabeth travelled to Norfolk Island to visit their son Sidney and his family. Sid was stationed there as a Police Constable for the NSW police service. According to a Newspaper article in "The Brisbane Courier" on Monday 23 October, 1922 the family also went to help another son on his farm.
    "Mr. Louis Werner, of Murrumba, will leave this week for Norfolk Island, when he will join one of his sons in farming and fruit culture at that place". Both Albert and James had applied for land grants on Norfolk Island in 1920.
    Elizabeth and Lucy may have returned to the island in 1925 to help Sid and his family with the move back to Sydney. A shipping notice in The Sydney Morning Herald stated " THE MAKAMHO'S PASSENGERS.

  • He was the son of Louis Henry Werner and Josephine Unknown.
  • Louis H R Werner immigrated to Sydney in 1855. He is thought to have arrived on the Daniel Ross, which arrived in Sydney on the 27 April 1855 from Hamberg captained by J L Kessal. Louis was naturalised on 6 August 1859 and gave his ships name as Daniel Ross and the date of arrival as 1855, however his name cannot be made out on the passenger list.3,4
  • At the age of 31 years, Louis H R Werner married Magdalena (Rosina) Albig, daughter of Johann Friedrich Christof Albig and Johanna Rosina Heiss, on 12 July 1857 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia. The marriage was officiated by Timothy McCauley /McCarthy?, in the "Church of Rome". Witnesses to the marriage were X Abbig and Catherine Hedley. The name Albig was spelt ABBIG throughout the certificate. The place of birth of the bride and groom, parents name and occupation were all given as NOT KNOWN.1,5,6

  • In 1858 Louis H R Werner and Magdalena (Rosina) Albig lived in on the corner of Miles and Scott Steet, Tenterfield, New South Wales.
    Louis and Rosina's daughter Rose (Rosina Bailey)'s obituary written in 1952, gives details of where the Werner family lived. "The Werner home was situated at the corner, near the intersection of Miles and Scott Street and occupied the site where later the Curren home was erected. Mrs Bailey was born in 1862 and was the third child in a family of eight. Two of this family still survives, namely Miss Louisa retired hospital matron, and George, both of Sydney."8
  • In 1859 Louis was naturalized. His place of origin was given as Prussia and his age 33. According to the Naturalization list he arrived on the ship "Daniel Ross" in 1855.4
  • Louis H R Werner was the informant of the death of Johanna Rosina Heiss on 23 February 1860 in Tenterfield, New South Wales. Rosina's death certfiicate shows she was born Wurternburg, Germany and had been in New South Wales for 5 years. Maiden name Heiss, her father was a farmer. The informant was her son in law Louis Werner. Husband's name Frederick Albig. She was 66 years old and died of dropsy.9
  • On 27 December 1861 the Werner home was struck by lightning, rendering a young man [perhaps John Bonhag, Rosina's nephew] unconscious, almost hitting a baby in a cradle [Francis Louis Albig Werner who would have been 16 months old], and causing considerable damage to the house.
    The Maitland Mercury reported the incident :- " SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS - This town was visited by a very severe thunderstorm on the night of Thursday and morning of Friday last. The storm commenced about five o'clock on Thursday afternoon, and continued with great violence until nine o'clock, when an abatement of a few hours took place, the heavens being partially clear, and perfect quiet reigning all around. However, another storm came up from the west ward about three o'clock on Friday morning, which exceeded in violence the preceding one, and startled the inhabitants from their repose.

A young sleeping child in a cradle had a very narrow escape, as its head was within a foot of the cross-cut saw which conducted the electric fluid though the roof. Others took place on Friday afternoon and Sunday."10

The undertaker was Jacob Heiss (his son whose birth surname was Albig), minister Arthur Rutledge (Wesleyan) and witnesses were Henry Bachfield and Charles Krahe. Frederick had been born in Germany, and had been in NSW for 12 years. Frederick had married at age 26 to Johanna Rosina Heiss and their children were Laurence, Rosina (twins since deceased), Christian 41, Andrew 38, Jacob 35 and Rosina 31.11,12
  • In July 1868 Louis collected monies for the Prince Albert Hospital Fund, donating 1shilling himself.13
  • In June 1869 Louis was an active memeber of the community and had an interest in the schooling of his children. On 20 Jul 1869 the Clarence & Richmond Examiner reported - " NATIONAL SCHOOL - The monthly meeting of the Local Patrons of the National School, was held on Monday, 5th. June, Mr. William Gordon was voted, into the chair. Four additional Local Patrons were added to the list, viz., Messrs. J. M.Scuter, S. Davidson, T. Allen, and T. Peberdy. Mr Lewis Werner was elected secretary pro tem. The late secretary charged Mr. Werner with having made use of certain expressions at a previous meeting, that was rather derogatory to the Board, and he considered that Mr. Werner ought to resign. Some discussion then ensued when Mr. Gordon asked leave to vacate the chair, which having been granted, Mr. Merrill took the same, when the meeting unanimously decided that "Mr. Werner be requested to resign his office as secretary."14
  • The Grevilles Post Office Directory of 1872 shows him as WERNER LOUIS SADDLER --- TENTERFIELD.15

  • In October 1874 Louis caused himself harm as reported in the Clarence and Richmond River Examiner on 20 October 1874 - " POSSESSED OF A DEVIL Louis Werner, a labourer residing in Tenterfield, last week, gouged his right eye with a fork, and after burying it, filled the cavity up first with stinging nettles, then with coarse salt, all because that member offended him. It seems that Werner periodically becomes a mono-maniac, and during the madness, he does most rash and curious things. At times he will work in his garden in the dead of night, clothed only in nettles ; at other times his poor children must go with him in the most solitary places, to pray. These fits last about a week, and it is more than probable that the loss of his eye sorely grieves him, and he ought to be thankful that the injury is not greater, for after he had plucked his eye out, he was about cutting off his foot, but was prevented by some neighbours who luckily observed him."16
  • In 1885, according to the Parlimentary Land Deeds, Louis owned 3.5 acres of Tenterfield Station, and 8 cattle.
  • Louis H R Werner died on 13 January 1891 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia. His son Herman (Richard) was the informant of his father's death. The certificate shows Louis was a 65 year old harness maker of Tenterfield, who was born in Prussa and had been in Australia for 36 years. His father was Louis Henry Werner, a captain in the Prussian Army and mother Josephine. Louis had been married in Tenterfield 31 years ago to Rosie HEISS (should be ALBIG). His living children were listed as Hannah 33, Louis 31, Rose 29, Charles 27, Herman 23, Elizabeth 19, Louisa 16 and George 14.

Rosina C Louise Werner1

F, b. 1862, d. 3 April 1952

William Bailey and Rose (nee Werner). Taken c 1900. Photo thanks to Alan Taber.

  • Rosina C Louise Werner was also known as Rose.2
  • She was born in 1862 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia.3
  • She was the daughter of Louis H R Werner and Magdalena (Rosina) Albig.
  • In October 1876 Rose was present when her friend drowned in Tenterfield Creek.
    The Evening News (Sydney) reported on 31 October 1876 - " Sad Death of a Brave Girl
    A poor little girl, in endeavouring to save her younger brother from drowning, met with her death last Saturday in the Tenterfield Creek, close to the town and, as will be seen by the following brief account of the disaster, a nobler example of true heroism has never been chronicled. It appears that a little boy, named William Linedale, aged seven years, son of Mr. A . Linedale, carpenter and builder, went to bathe in the Tenterfield Creek in company with several other children, shortly after four o'clock in the afternoon. He was unable to swim, having gone into very deep water, he almost immediately sank. His sister was standing on the bank, and seeing his danger, jumped in to his rescue, but the water being very deep she was not able to succeed in her humane efforts at saving her brother's life. Another little girl named Rosina Werner couragiously leaped in to render assistance and in doing so was herself placed in immediate danger, the deceased laying hold of her foot and holding on for dear life. After Rosina Werner managed to reach the bank deceased cried out, ' Save me, Rosy, do," and immediately sank. On alarm being given, Mr. Beattie, who was at work in a neighbouring paddock, succeeded in rescuing the boy. The spectators must have been paralysed, with fear or else so anxious about the boy's life that no one could inform Mr. Beattie where Mary Linedale had disappeared, but that gentleman continued his search unassisted till a messenger was dispatched to the cricket ground near at hand, where there were several young men congregated. The information, however, was of such a dubious nature that those present did not pay much attention to the intelligence, treating it at first as a joke, but subsequently perceiving the danger they hastened, with all possible speed, to render their assistance. When they arrived at the scene, no one seemed to know the exact place where the little girl had disappeared; but to their credit be it said, that all who were able to swim went into the water immediately, and the people on the bank (of whom there were a large number) were most anxious about the saving of the child ; all efforts, however, were in vain, and it was not until she had been in the water about forty minutes, that Mr J. Woods fancied he felt something with his feet. Mr Laird, who arrived, dived and succeeded in bringing the body to the surface. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon last, and the large numbers who followed the remains of the deceased girl to her last resting place showed the esteem in which she was held during her short earthly career, also the sympathy felt by the public for the bereaved family.— Tenterfield Star."4
  • On 9 September 1879 the Maitland Mercury reported: -News was received in town on Thursday morning of an offence of a like nature being attempted in the same neighbourhood as the previous one, and this time also at the house of one of the sons of the above-named gentleman. It appears that Mr. John Curry, although carrying on the business of butcher in Tenterfield, resides with his wife and young family about two miles from the town, and about half-a-miile from the residence of his father. On Thursday morning, Mr. Curry had occasion to be in town very early, and left his residence with his wife about 6 o'clock, leaving only the servant, a girl named Rose Werner, in charge of the house. About half-an-hour after Mr. Curry and wife had left, the attention of the girl was attracted to a man that she saw skulking behind a log near the house. She watched him for some time, but after awhile had occasion to go to another part of the house, when she heard a noise in one of the bedrooms. She went to ascertain the cause, and found the man partly in the room through an open window. The girl called for assistance, and the intended thief made off to a short distance from the house, and hid behind some bushes. He, however, appears to have watched the girl, for he again made the attempt to get into the house. The girl, greatly terrified, screamed for assistance, and her cries being heard by the elder Mr. Curry, he at once went to see what was the matter, but in the meantime the scoundrel had made off, and although Mr. Curry searched for him he got clear away."5

  • In April 1952 Rosina C Louise Werner's obituary appeared in Tenterfield newspaper. It read:- "OBITUARY
    THE LATE MRS ROSE BAILEY
    On April 3, 1952 there passed away at her home near Mt McKenzie, one of the oldest most useful and highly respected ladies of Tenterfield, in the person of Mrs Rose Bailey. She had reached the venerable age of 90 years.
    During the last few years she had suffered some severe illnesses, which undermined her physical strength, but her mental faculties were alert and she could read without glasses right up to the time of her death. Almost to the end of her life she was a familiar figure about the town.
    Her father was Louis Werner, who arrived in Tenterfield in the fifties of the last century. He was a well known harness maker of the town.
    He mother, before her marriage, Miss Rose Heiss – on her arrival in Australia, resided Wyangarie Station on the Upper Richmond River. One brother was killed there as a result of an accident with a horse. Another brother was the late Jacob Andrew Heiss, of Tenterfield, father of Mr. C Heiss.
    The Werner home was situated at the corner, near the intersection of Miles and Scott Street and occupied the site where later the Curren home was erected. Mrs Bailey was born in 1862 and was the third child in a family of eight. Two of this family still survives, namely Miss Louisa retired hospital matron, and George, both of Sydney.
    Miss Rose Werner married William Bailey, son of pioneer William Bailey. Other children of William Bailey sen and his wife – previously Miss Cubis – were George who died recently at Kyogle at a great age; Herbert; Arthur usually called “Peter”; Thurza (Mrs Collins); and Elizabeth (Mrs French). The Bailey home, long since demolished was not far from the corner of Molesworth and Scott Streets, and was situated between the two other old homes in the vicinity, Plowman’s and the corner house which were recently demolished.
    The home in Scott Street (Plowman’s) was the home of Arthur Bailey (Mr. Arthur T Bailey’s father), while the corner house was the home of William Bailey who married Rose Werner. It was there that their only child Fred was born.
    The Bailey property extended from Scott Street to Tenterfield Creek and included what are now the two bowling greens and crocket lawn and old freezing works. They also owned the property across Molesworth Street, on which is the old brick house, now occupied by Walter Marshall.
    The portion on which the first bowling green is constructed was disposed of for the erection of a butter factory. This was in operation there for many years, until eventually, it was burnt down, and the present factory erected at the intersection of Rouse and Cowner Streets.
    It may surprise some to the bowlers to know that the old factory well is still under the bowling green. If the covering may some day give way, some unfortunate bowler may suddenly disappear into the depths.
    At a later period, Mr. and Mrs William Bailey, and their son Fred lived in the stone house in Douglas Street (now Boston’s) and other parts of town.
    Mr. Bailey was an expert shearer in the time of blade shearing, and was at time a competitor in the shearing contests put on by the Show Society.
    In 1908 he selected the property adjoining the Mt McKenzie road, and soon afterwards the family took up residence there. This remained the home of Mrs Bailey up until the time of her death.
    In 1916 Mrs Bailey suffered the loss of her husband. With brave and unconquerable spirit she continued to work the farm. She not only reared her own son but also several other children who were left motherless.
    Not only did Mrs Bailey with the help of her son Fred, attend to the many duties of the farm, and of the home, but she unselfishly spent her long life in active service for the welfare and advancement for the district and community.
    She attended the first Agricultural show, which was held in the original part of the School of Arts and adjacent land at the rear. The only show she missed since then was in 1916, the year her husband died.
    She was a keen exhibitor at the shows and a great worker for the district exhibits, which were for years a valuable feature of the annual exhibitions. In connection with the show society bazaars she took a leading part, and rendered active and invaluable service. She was amongst the earliest members of the Country Women’s Association and Every Little Helps Society, and was later elected patroness to both societies.
    Mrs Bailey was a founding member of Rebecca Lodge, IOOF, and was awarded a certificate of merit for gaining most new members for her lodge.
    She was a faithful member and worker for the Church of England, and also rendered generous assistance to other churches in their efforts.
    During the First World War Mrs Bailey was one of the hardest workers for the Red Cross, and patriotic efforts and functions. So highly were her services appreciated, that the authorities presented her with a certificate in recognition of her devoted services.
    Advancing years and physical weakness had in recent years prevented such active participation in service to the community, but right to the close of life she continued to render such service as she was able.
    Tenterfield has been blessed by the life and service of many fine women, many of whom were natives of the district. Among these Mrs Bailey holds a high place."11

Sidney Charles Werner

M, b. 27 January 1885, d. 1969

The Werner family- from the left: Hannah, Louis, Francis, Elizabeth nursing Lucy, Sidney, Roseanna (sitting), Edward and Lillian sitting on the ground. Albert and James are missing. Taken c 1908 perhaps in Toowoomba.
  • Sidney Charles Werner was born on 27 January 1885 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia. Mrs Hoskins (most likely his grandmother Elizabeth Hoskins, formerly French, nee Baker) was witness to his birth.1,2
  • He was the son of Louis Francis Albig Werner and Elizabeth French.
  • In 1906 Sidney Charles Werner lived in Thallon Street, Crow's Nest.3
  • In 1912 he was Policeman, NSW Police Force.4
  • At the age of 28 years, 7 months and 5 days, Sidney Charles Werner married Sarah Catherine Delaney, daughter of Richard Delaney and Elizabeth Mary Baker, on 1 September 1913 in Tempe, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.5
  • Between 1913 and 1925 Sidney worked as a policeman on Norfolk Island. Sidney Werner was appointed as an officer in the Norfolk Police on 10 September 1913 - 9 days after his marriage to Sarah.
    The following are extracts from the Reports of the Administrator for Norfolk Island for the years 1915/1918
    1915 - Page 6 Constabulary
    There are three constables employed. Constable Werner of the NSW Police Force is temporarily in charge, and under him are two constables who are natives of the island and of Pitcairn descent. The acting chief police officer (Werner) reports that the principal of employing members of the community as constables is not satisfactory, as the close relationship existing is incompatible with constabulary duty, and in practice it is found that they bring no cases before the court, and that they do not sufficiently interest themselves in cases brought under their notice. One of the local constables has recently tended his resignation. It is not desirable to appoint another Norfolk Islander in his place.
    1916- Page 8 Constabulary
    During the year two constables were employed. Corporal Buffet (Pitcairn descendant) recently tended his resignation in order to avail himself of more remunerative employment and Super Intendant Quintall (Pitcairn Descendant) who was on active service with the Australian Imperial Forces in Galloipe, returned incapacitated. On his return, he was welcomed home by the Administrator and members of the Executive Council. He was informed that his position in the constabulary was open to him, but he stated that he was unable to satisfactorily perform the duties and tended his resignation. He informed me that he was being well cared for by the Commonwealth Defence Force.
    Constable Werner is in charge and reports that there has been less cause for complaint this year than in the proceeding two years. As a rule the residents are peaceful and law abiding and the serious cases are few and far between. This is attributed to a large extent to the existence of the Liquor Prohibition Law. The Leading Lights and Signals are in charge of the constable, who also acts as forest ranger. It is proposed that when available as assistant will be temporarily employed in connection with the Leading Lights and Signals at Kingston.
    1917 - Page 6 Constabulary
    Constable Werner is at present in sole charge and he performs all the constabulary duties. He reports as satisfactory condition of affairs in regard to the residents generally, who are as a rule peaceful and law abiding. He also acts as forest ranger. The slaughter yards are subject to periodical inspection, and these are being gradually improved, so as to satisfactorily provide for proper sanitary conditions. The number of cattle slaughtered was 329, including 75 heifers. All the cattle slaughtered are reported to have been in a healthy condition. From periodic inspections made of the lemon and fish factories they are reported to be in a good sanitary condition. The constable is assisted by a youth in connection with the Leading Lights and Signal Station.
    1918 - Page 7 Constabulary
    Constable Werner is still in charge. He performs all the constabulary duties; he also acts as forest ranger and assists at the signal station when necessary. He reports that the slaughter yards have been improved during the year, and that the Lemon Factory and fish works are kept in a sanitary condition. The community generally is well behaved and law abiding.
