I think I will leave any further response until andrew999 replies to the postings given so far.

Very hard to know what is actually being looked for.

Thanks Andrew  :)

But I haven't found a likely death or remarriage for Myra (Mira, Mia) LANGLEY/CULLEN or probable marriages for her daughters i.e. with marriage announcements which confirm parents or corresponding deaths which match (even partly) the parents.  I tried with surnames of LANGLEY and CULLEN and there are some possibles.

Was it Eve LANGLEY (in your heading) who you were especially interested in?

Anything in particular that you were hoping to find?

Hi Ros,
Myra moved to NZ with her younger daughter June & Eve followed shortly after. I know quite a bit of that part of the family history from the two biographies of Eve. Eve moved to Katoomba in the 1960ís & died there in 1974.
Iím interested in info about the descendants of Myraís siblings. From what youíve found,it looks as though some stayed in the Bruthen & Tambo area for some time.
I have an old photo of the Kings Arms Hotel, proprietor T. Davidson, which Iíll try & post... I think the name mayíve been changed to the Sir Walter Scott Hotel & was retained when it was rebuilt on the other side of the Tambo

I see there is a probate file for Eve Langley-Clark who died in 1974 at Katoomba at NSW archives
https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/item/1511533

I can photograph this for you next time I am there if it is of interest ...?

The Victorian BDM is really useful for searching.  If you click on an index entry it gives more information (not obvious as it is not highlighted).  And if you click on more search options you can search for deaths with given parents etc.

OK I will search for more info on siblings of Myra ... :)

Ros

adding : aha I have found biography of Eve (aka Ethel Jane LANGLEY) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eve_Langley

Thatís a very kind offer to photograph the probate file, thank you.
Interesting info about Arthur too. I thought heíd died in 1910, but perhaps was later... I think he had a brother, Alec, who I think was a drover near Forbes.

From NSW BDM
Death 1915
Arthur A LANGLEY, father William H, mother Barbara, at Granville

I can't see a death for an Alec LANGLEY or Alexander LANGLEY in NSW or an enlistment in WW1

Some info Iíd posted on another thread:
From wikipedia: "A hotel was established at Tambo Crossing on the east side of the river in this period, first being officially licensed in 1849 with the name of The Tambo Inn. In 1854 Duncan McDougall took over the inn. The hotel was renamed the Sir Walter Scott Hotel in the late 1860s. In 1890 a new hotel was built on the western side of the river beside the newly aligned road between Bruthen and Ensay, but kept the "Sir Walter Scott" name. The hotel burnt down on 8 September 1961 and was not rebuilt. The current information board is on the site of the former hotel, with the Great Alpine Road also passing over part of the site."
