  • William Charles Bailey was born in December 1862 in New South Wales, Australia. His death registration shows William C Bailey.
  • He was the son of William Bailey and Elizabeth Cubis.
  • An entry in a book on the histroy of Tenterfield states "It is claimed by some old settlers that the first white child born in Tenterfield was William Bailey, who was born in the old home at the south-west corner of Scott and Molesworth Streets. As registrations of births was then not compulsory it is difficult to prove this." Compilers Note:- This is most likely not true as the first registed birth was that of Herbert Merrell in 1856.
  • Between 1882 and 1890 notices of successful tenders for the construction of roads in the Tenterfield district by W. Bailey were printed in the Government Gazette.
  • In 1886 William Charles Bailey lived in New South Wales. Rose's obituary written in 1952, gives details of where the Bailey families lived. "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."

  • At the age of 23 years, William Charles Bailey married Rosina C Louise Werner, daughter of Louis H R Werner and Magdalena (Rosina) Albig, in 1886 in New South Wales, Australia.
