Hi Cherilyn,

A great big thank you for your reply to my query on Esau Risby. Esau Risby fathers name was Issac Risby so I feel that the Isaac Risby who died 1855 is my Esau Risby. The Joseph and Mary Risby is not connected. Joseph fathers name is not the same.

You mentioned that Esau Risby is buried in West Maitland Cemetery. May I ask the source relating to Maitland Cemetery.

Thank you once again for your extensive research on my Esau Risby.

Kay and Allan P

Hi Pam


Condron, Leslie John William; Army Number - 294709; Date of birth - 19 March 1912

He was a carpenter, single, aged 21, born Wangaratta. Next of kin was James Condron of 56 Rowan St, Wangaratta. He enlisted in 1933 and was discharged in 1934.

Assume this James is his father and the same James Condron who gives the above address on his enlistment in 1931 aged 42; he was born 1899 Wangaratta, labourer.

The Argus, Thursday 2 July 1936
When he pleaded guilty to 13 charges of larceny from dwellings at Kew on various dates between April and June 1936, Leslie John William Condron, formerly of Wangaratta, unemployed, was sentenced by Mr O'Callaghan P.M. at Kew Court yesterday to imprisonment for 14 days on each charge, the sentences to be cumulate.
Evidence was given by a series of witnesses that on dates between April and June, blankets, bedding and other articles had been stolen from beds on the front verandahs of their homes. The total value of property was £32.
Constable J. J. Hoare said that on June 23 he had been Condron sitting on a seat in Cotham road with a sugar bag containing blankets beside him. He had said that his aunt had given them to him but later he had admitted that he had stolen them. He had also admitted the other thefts and that he had pawned the goods. Constable Hoare said that some of the articles had since been recovered from pawnbrokers shops.
Condron told the Bench that he was unemployed and had yelded to the temptation to steal the blankets.
The prosecutor (Sergeant Vincent) said that he had been a schoolmate of Condron's father at Wangaratta. Condron had always had a good character until he had become involved in the present cases. There were a number of similar charges to be heard In other courts.

Hi Cane
No luck in Qld, Vic or NSW.
There is a Richard ABBOTT who died in WA in 1896 - parents, age & birthplace unknown - but seems a bit early (he would have been only 14!) Reg is 463 but seems unlikely it would tell you anything based on above.
Sorry :(
