Hi there,

Re Thomas Joseph KYNASTON

From NSW Electoral Roll 1913, WAGGA WAGGA electorate, polling at Wagga Wagga.

Thomas Joseph KYNASTON, Hillside, a carter.

I also noticed there were people with that surname at COBAR NSW on the 1913 ER.

NSW ER 1913,  COBAR electorate, polling at Cobar
Edith Margaret Jane KYNASTON, of Leah St, dd
Francis George M KYNASTON, of Leah St, a produce merchant.


Could you please check the spelling for your PIERCE family, perhaps the surname was recorded as PEARCE in NSW Ö.

NSW ER 1913  HAWKESBURY, polling at Penrith.

Henry Benjamin PEARCE, of Warwick St, engine turner
Lily Jubilee PEARCE, of Warwick St, dd
Venus Wilhelmina PEARCE, of Hemming St, dd
William Henry PEARCE, of Hemming St, railway inspector.

Railway Inspector Ö. Possibly his nephew had a stint at SHUNTING.   Hemming St is about halfway between Penrith Railway Station and Kingswood Railway Station, according to Mr Googlemaps.

Cheers,  JM

ADDING Oops, the following forgot to include itself Ö

NSW ER 1913, HAWKESBURY, polling at Penrith
Alice Rosina EDWARDS, Station St, dd
Charles Robert EDWARDS, Station St, railway storeman
Frances EDWARDS, (female), Castlereagh St, dd
George EDWARDS, Henry St, labourer
Malvina Hannah EDWARDS, Henry St, dd
Marianne, EDWARDS, High St, dd
Marion EDWARDS, High St, dd
William EDWARDS, Henry St, grocer
William Isaac EDWARDS, Castlereagh St, labourer.

Do you have an approximate date for the death of "Aunty" living in Glebe?

JM and Judith

Many thanks for your responses.

At this stage, I'm pretty sure the 'Cousin Tom' I'm after is A PIERCE or PEARCE, not Kynaston.
In some of the Shropshire Census', both spellings were used.

Kynastons connected with the family - Married my Grandfather's sister (EMILY REBECCA EDWARDS B Kinnerley, Nr Oswestry) did emigrate to Australia, but this didn't happen until later in the 1900's, I'll sort out dates and post them asap - that's another strand of enquiry!.

majm, It's likely that the head of household would have been WILLIAM PIERCE (PEARCE?), with a THOMAS as a son.
Until I see my family contact next week, I'm not sure, again, I'll post more when I know.

Judith, I'm afraid I can't say when she died, only that it would have been sometime between, say 1915 and 1920 when Grandad returned to UK - he didn't date his notes, until later when he was about to return.
I have had a quick look on the NSW records, and can't find an Alice that looks right - again, lets wait until next week, I should have more definite info then.

Once again, You've been most helpful

Many thanks

Hello all, to bring you up to date
I'm pretty sure now that Tom was Thomas Pierce, son of William and Alice Pierce (sometimes spelled PIEARCE, confusingly)
Alice died in 1915 while my Grandfather was in Australia, which ties in with his diary.
William Piearce died in 1944.
I'm now contacting a descendant of William and Alice (in Aus) who have done extensive research and may be able to fill in more gaps.

Thanks for all your help

Thanks Judith, that's the right William and Thomas Pierce.
I'll look at the reports.
Hopefully I'm also in touch with one of William's descendants who lives in Sydney, so I'll wait to hear
many thanks for your help

The spelling of William and Venusís surname is PEARCE...
they are my great grandparents (he was grandfather to my Dad, John Henry Oswald Pearce, an amazing man who unfortunately died in 2018 (late of Dee Why NSW. Dad was a lifesaver with North Bondi Surf Club in the early 1950s).
William Henry was Deputy Commissioner of the NSW Railways.
Dadís dad, William Tobin, was oldest brother to Oswald.
Venus is a descendant of Matthew Everingham, a convict on the First Fleet.
Oswald Pearce, William and Venusí youngest son, was Dadís uncle:

and features on http://australiansatwarfilmarchive.unsw.edu.au/archive/876-oswald-pearce an outstanding series of biographical interviews!
Dad was an only child and mum only had one sister so we donít know a lot of direct relatives of the Pearce family but my parents did attend one reunion 10 years ago.
