Note

Message postred on curiousfox website: R) greatrex, OWEN, MORRIS (Nov 05) Ireland (Country) R) greatrex, OWEN, MORRIS (Nov 05) Jonas greatrex and Mary OWEN came to Australia between about 1830 and 1835 from Ireland. They had at least 3 daughters: Mary Ann, born in Ireland circa 1929; Catherine, born in Sydney NSW Australia in 1835; and Ellen, born in Sydney in 1840. These 3 sisters married 3 MORRIS brothers: Mary Ann greatrex married William MORRIS in 1849; Catherine greatrex married John MORRIS in 1851; and Ellen greatrex married George MORRIS in 1856. Another MORRIS/greatrex connection: Elizabeth Jane Smith, nee MORRIS, (a sister of these Morris brothers) had a daughter, Jane, who married William greatrex in 1868. The MORRIS sister and brothers are descendants of Thomas MORRIS and Jane Glover who lived in Shinfield, Berkshire England in 1759. I have information to share about many descendants from the MORRIS/greatrex marriages. I would like to hear any information about Jonas greatrex and Mary OWEN and their family, also the parents, brothers and sisters of this couple. Surname Keywords: greatrex, OWEN, MORRIS

FATAL ACCIDENT — On Wednesday afternoon an occurrence took place which terminated fatally to a man named David Church. Church was for two years past in the employ of Mr Thomas Smith, contractor, as a horse-driver. About four o'clock on Wednesday afternoon be obtained from Mr Smith the loan of a quiet
bay mare and saddle, with new girths. In company with a lad named Alfred Bussell, he then went out riding. They crossed the Long Bridge together and turned into Green Street. Church was not much accustomed to riding and the mare was trotting. A short distance beyond Mr Pearce's house be called on Bussell to stop and at the same moment fell off the mare, his face coming against the ground; as he fell the saddle turned
round, coming under the horse's belly. Bussell dismounted, and a domestic servant of Mr F M Doyle's, named Mary Ann Morris, came over and assisted Church to the fence and washed his face. He was then removed to the Hospital and Dr McKenzie was sent for ; that
gentleman promptly attended and found that Church was suffering from concussion of the brain, his pulse was then failing and be was sinking fast. Some remedies were applied but at seven o'clock the unfortunate man
expired. He was unconscious from the moment he fell and never spoke afterwards. The deceased was a sober hard- working man ; he was thirty-two years of age and has left a wife and two children unprovided for. An inquest on the body was held on Thursday by Mr Thomson, the Coronor, at the Hospital, at which the above particulars were elicited, and the verdict — "accidentally killed by a fall from a horse" — was returned.
