Treloar family,Kooringa,Burra
« on: Wednesday 12 December 12 19:47 GMT (UK) »
I have an interesting and apparently very old postcard sent from Brighton in England and addressed to Mrs F Treloar,Kooringa,Burra, Sth Australia,it's from some one named  Annie..I have learned that Frank Treloar was prominent in Burra prior to 1930-ish when he moved to Croydon but I would like to know more about his wife and perhaps find out who Annie was too...she appears to be travelling around England..a holiday perhaps? Seeing as the Treloars left Burra in 1930 and the post card was sent to them there it follows that the card(whose post mark is faded) was sent before 1930 making it at least 80 years old but likely much more.
Annie's penmanship is messy and scrawling but she writes that she is in Brighton for a few days only and so was sending a few cards.Could she have worked at Kooringa with the Treloar family?
the tone of the message suggests that she was not close to Mrs Treloar and she does not use her christian name in addressing her but perhaps I assume too much?!
Would love to know more about Annie and Mrs Treloar and I would happily send this card to descendants of either party if they would like to have it.
Merry Christmas everyone :)

Won't help with your request for info about Annie however I can recall a friend of my grandmother's always addressing her as Mrs ***** but my grandmother addressed her friend by her given name.  My grandmother was the elder of the two.  This was in the 1940's.

There is also a Brighton in South Australia.

Thanks folks....I am still hopeful about learning more of Annie but Candos' remarks do make sense given the era so she may well have been a friend of Mrs Treloar..Im pretty sure that it was Brighton England that the card was sent from though as a) it is a picture of Brighton's pebbley beach sea side complete with British flag..and b) Most tellingly..the legible part of the post mark states it's Brighton U.K......any and all suggestions and thoughts are gratefully received. :)

Here is a link to the Burra History Group.

http://www.burrahistory.info/

On the left hand side of the page, you will see a tab -  'Frank Treloar Transcriptions'.

Perhaps an email to them may be worthwhile?   :)

Cheers, Chris.

After exploring the website a bit further, I found a lengthy obituary for Frank Treloar. 

His written works were published in 2011 and are now available for purchase.
Cheers, Chris.

Thanks Chris...I had found that website and have the obituary transcript..he was rather active in his community however his wife is some what less well documented..Iam going to contact the Burra History group to see what light they might shed on Sarah and hopefully on Annie too.
I may be able to donate the postcard to them or descendants of the Treloar family if they want it.
Your thoughts were much appreciated.
Cheers
Karen

I am a descendant of Francis & Sarah Treloar, parents of Frank and Sarah that you speak of.  I have a Treloar history book written by Pamela McCallum, which documents quite a bit on Frank and Sarah. They also had a child additional to the ones posted below called Emmie Maude Treloar, married  George Hartwig. Sarah lived with Emmie Hartwig at Croydon, South Australia until her death.
Sarah was a rigid and rather hard woman, straight laced and precise.
There is no mention of an Annie - although Emmie had two sons and fostered 5 children.
