Hi Margaret, Thanks for sharing all that work on James Wiseman Marshall. Makes great reading. His story is referred to when doing the tours of Craigmoor in Hill End but this puts it all in context. Are you aware of the story of the small crafted bird, hanging from one of the light fittings in the front room of Craigmoor, as a constant reminder of the birds that the shipwrecked passengers were forced to eat?
Thanks for your query. Sorry there has been a delay in respop0nding but computer did an upgrade and I have had issues logging in!
I should be able to provide some info on these family names and will try to get it together in the next few days. Please contact me via the “Contact us” page with your email address to send material to.
According to some of our death registrations Dr Faddy was there approximately between 1861 and 1864. This was a period before the still existing hospital at Hill End was built in 1872, so he probably served in very difficult circumstances.
Check out Trove newspaper articles but use Faddy and “Tambaroora” instead of Hill End as it wasn’t until 1862 that it was officially gazetted as that name.
A couple of mentions:
By August 1864 he appears to have moved on to the Northern Goldfields.(Tamworth and the Peel River )
Have you seen his entry in the Australian Medical Pioneers Index? http://www.medicalpioneers.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi?detail=1&id=3906
This should give you a few ideas, He was obviously well thought of.
Welcome to the forum. Hopefully other Cookes may find you there. cheers Lorraine
I have passed on your enquiry to a family member who may be able to assist you. regards Lorraine
