Hi there,

To avoid duplication may I mention that the image was a focus of an earlier thread  :D

I continue to agree that a Mary HAWKES aged 66 and of the Church of England denomination was sent to Newington Asylum (in Sydney) by the Police Magistrate at Bourke NSW as a result of Dr SIDES determining she was suffering from General Debility.

Here is earlier thread about the same image and Mary HAWKES
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=743406.0

ADD
following up from that earlier thread, I have re-checked the Bourke CD and there's no mention of a Frederick MOTT, sorry.

Thanks Sue
and also to JM thank you again. I could not find the original post I had made and thought it was deleted, sorry. Still trying to work through Mary. Have just picked this up again and trying to go over suggestions already posted.

Frederick MOTT was 75 years of age when he died in August 1903.  His widow, Sarah Jane is mentioned  :)  NSW BDM has the marriage indexed for 1869, registered in Young, and Sarah's nee surname as HAWKS  :)

Mary was NOT listed with the Frederick MOTT family in 1891 at Bourke as there was just ONE female (and four males).

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G96K-NGCK?i=50&cc=2317858

(Mitchell Street Bourke noted as 'not numbered' on that 1891 NSW Census enumerator's sheet)

Baptised in 1911 at Granville NSW, born in 1830, parents surnamed HAWKES  ???

I seem to recall posting about that baptism several years ago, but perhaps for some other enquiry.
