Donald died in 1847 two days after he tragically fell into a vat of boiling ale. He had married twice. He left one son and four daughters by his first wife Isabella MacDougall and a daughter of his second marriage to Alice MacDougall. His son Dugald inherited the distillery, but couldn't run it immediately since he was only eleven. His uncle John Johnston of Tallant acted as one of the Trustees. He appointed Walter Graham from neighboring Lagavulin as distillery manager. In 1857 Dugald came of age, took over the management and was assigned the land lease by his father's Trustees in 1858, but not after some legal disputes with his sisters.

DEATH OF MISS ELLEN LLOYD DAVIES
£74,000 FORTUNE

Miss Ellen Lloyd Davies, who recently inherited the estate of the gross value of £74,000 from Thomas Hughes Ford Hughes (her bachelor brother who has lived a life of a recluse at Carmarthen) passed away at her residence, 57 Lammas street, Carmarthen, on Saturday last, at the age of 73 years.
The announcement of Mr. Ford Hughes's will combined a tolerance of wealth and loneliness. Although well connected and the owner of a considerable estate in West Wales, he lived alone in Union street, Carmarthen, for 25 years, and allowed hardly anyone to enter. For 20 years he very seldom left his abode, and lately he followed the life of a recluse. One morning, early in March last, a messenger delivering provisions received no response to his knocks, and on fearing Mr. Hughes was dead, he informed the police. Upon entry being made into the residence Mr. Hughes was found in a state of collapse. He was removed to the workhouse infirmary, where he died a few days later. He was the son of Mr. Davies, Nantgwilan, Cardiganshire was well educated, and prior to entering a life of seclusion had traveled extensively. The terms of his will published about seven weeks ago, showed that he died intestate, leaving estate of which the net value was sworn at £7,711, 7s, 9d and letters of administration of his property were granted to his sister , Miss Ellen Lloyd Davies, of 57 Lammas street Carmarthen, as the only next of kin. The property includes the an estate at Nantgwilan, Cardiganshire. There is also property at Pembrokeshire. Miss Davies, who has now passed away, had been a Roman Catholic for many years, and when her brother's will was published she was asked what she intended doing. She replied that her only wish was to go to Rome to see the Pope. Her continued illness precluded her realising her wish.
The funeral took place at Troedyraur on Thursday last, Father Bernard, C.P. assisted by Father Xeiverb, C.P. officiating.

224 Firstly, on behalf of Janice and Susan, I would like to thank you all for coming today, especially those who have travelled from interstate. Not quite the family reunion we would have all planned, but lovely to all be together to share our memories of Ken.

He was always a very private man and until recently only those closest to him knew about his illness, but he was very positive in his attitude and doing everything in his power to overcome this obstacle. His sudden admission to hospital last week and subsequent cardiac arrest were not only unexpected, but so sudden, everyone has been left in shock. We can however be grateful that he didn’t suffer.

Kenneth Roy Hunter was born on 23rd July, 1948 at Brisbane Women’s Hospital, the eldest child of Dorothy (Doss) and Gordon Hunter and first grandchild for Rene and Roy Gowing. Ken was followed exactly 2 yrs later by Ross, a further 2 yrs later by Janice and finally Susan, 9 years after that.

Ken spent his early childhood in Brisbane, but returned to Eastern Valley Way, Middle Cove to attend Castle Cove Primary School and later North Sydney Boys High. Ken was always quiet, serious and studious, even as a child.

After doing well in his leaving certificate, he studied at Sydney University, initially Civil Engineering, but changing to a Science Degree mid stream. He majored and topped the year in Computer Science, which led to being offered a job with Shell in Melbourne, along with an old school friend, David White. Quite how his interest in computers began is unknown, as it was such a new field back then, but Ken obviously excelled.

Messages from Shell workmates: We worked with Ken off and on over many years from the mid 80’s, in many IT mainframe projects and support teams and then in the SAP support team. We always remember that he was totally dedicated to Shell AU and was not impressed when Shell IT started to outsource and offshore the support of our critical systems (to IBM in India) – he did not want to be a part of ‘virtual’ team. He was the Shell AU ‘pioneer’ in IT – he worked on so many of the original mainframe programs for Shell Australia in the early to mid 80’s and had the ability to work through complex programming problems very logically and clearly. His documentation was always of the highest standard and he seemed to never make mistakes. He was a great programmer and solution designer and always very professional. He was quite the mainframe technical expert & guru and knew all the answers to all our questions and became one of the key go to people whenever there was a problem. It is a shock to hear that our old mate and great guy has left us. Please pass on condolences to Ken's family.

Ken always had a keen interest in Astronomy and took some brilliant photos of Haley’s comet during its visit in 1986. At one stage I shared this interest and Ken and I spent a number of evenings sitting on Mum and Dad’s front fence, as he pointed out various stars and constellations and their related information. The fact that I can remember Achenar, Pollux & Betelgeuse speaks volumes for what a good teacher he was and Sirius, the brightest star in the sky will always remind me of Ken.

His other great love was model planes. He received a number of Australian and international awards for his models, which he proudly displayed in a glass cabinet in his unit. His pride and joy was a Catalina – not only for the quality of the model, but because Uncle Gordon flew Catalinas during WW2 and was based nearby at Rathmines for some time.

His other interest was cars and his red Ferrari was a definite talking point amongst family and workmates alike Also displayed in his glass cabinet was his Olympic torch, which he carried through Melbourne on behalf of Shell, prior to the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. When we visited Ken only a fortnight ago, he was telling us how it was the proudest day of his life and was delighted it would remain in good hands, as he knew Janice valued the torch as a family heirloom.

Ken was always very keen on sport. In his younger days he played tennis, cricket and later, ice hockey and remained very fit, going for long walks every day right to the end. When the cricket season was in full swing, you never found Ken too far from the TV.

He didn’t travel a lot, but had travelled extensively around Victoria and more recently to Tasmania. He had also went to the US for Shell at one stage. He had great plans for travel during his retirement, around NSW and to New Zealand. Sadly these plans will never be realised.

He remained in Melbourne for a couple of years after his retirement from Shell, but last year moved to Jewells to be closer to Janice and the family. He had a lovely unit in Greenleaf Village and I know he was glad he’d made the move and had time to spend with the family, even if it wasn’t nearly as much as he’d planned.

225 Flora was born at Emmaville [near Glen Innes] in the residence in the Bank of New South Wales building, where her father was the branch manager. Her father was subsequently branch manager at Walgett, Dungog and Port Macquarie. Interestingly, her paternal grandparents [James Martin and Matilda Hetheringtonj were pioneers of Glen Innes, and her maternal grandparents [James Blair and Elizabeth Warlters] were pioneers of Port Macquarie, so Flora in her youth was familiar with both her ancestral areas in pioneer New South Wales.

Flora completed her education as a boarder and school prefect at Newcastle Church of England Girls' Grammar School.

Flora and her husband Ron retired to Killara.

226 Frank died of a heart attack. He was cremated at Rockhampton QLD and his ashes were spread on his fathers grave in the Field of Mars Cemetery, Ryde, NSW. Barton, Robert Francis (Frank) (I0082)
 
227 Frank married Nellie Johnston at Cardiff on the 22nd of August 1942, only taking an hour off work for the service before returning back to selling his fruit & vegies. The two celebrated 66 years of marriage this year. Frank & Nellie lived with his parents at 190 Main Rd Cardiff for a few years before building their home next door at 194 Main Rd Cardiff until illness took hold. Family F0044

230 Frederick was charged with giving run to a convict in exchange for a possum. Sentenced to 100 lashes which was later reduced to 50.

Although Frederick would presumably have been busy during the following weeks helping to unload the ship and may even have been present when Governor Phillip had the flag raised to mark the founding of the new Colony, there is no mention of Meredith in the official records until 23 February. On that day Frederick appeared before a Magistrate charged with having given rum to a convict in exchange for what was called a 'squirrel' which was probably a possum. This was a very serious charge as Governor Phillip had expressly forbidden anyone to give liquor to the convicts for fear that they would get drunk and cause trouble - as they often did. Frederick was found guilty of the charge and sentenced to receive 100 lashes. However, it is clear from the records, and especially from the journal kept by the Surgeon Arthur Bowes-Srnyth, that the young man was only doing what Captain Marshall had told him to. Marshall, together with other gentlemen who apparently respected Meredith, took up his case with the Governer Phillip who must have been suficiently impressed by these representations as he reduced the sentence to 50 lashes. Frederick was the fourth person to appear before a magistrate in the new colony.

239 From Jack Barton's Diary; Saturday, 12th January, 1918
Draw my pay at Pepiniere Barracks. If I should draw the whole picture from this diary I should refer back to my first visit to London where I met for the first time a very charming cousin, Dorothea Murray Prior, her life was being taken up in looking after her mother, Aunt Nora, who was losing her eyesight. Dorothea mentioned to me that her sister, Ruth, was working with the YMCA at Harfleur which camp I visited when attending our Bullring Camp at Le Havre. Now that I am on leave, I prefer the homely company of cousin Ruth so I visit Le Havre.

Ruth moved the England to help with the war effort. She never married.
