 Ok. I have now located and viewed the birth record of the girl born 1920.

Also that of the boy in 1922. His surname is WALKER and his given names include Davis.

The fuller details of the record which I have viewed actually do not show his father as Charles Thomas WALKER.

The space for father is blank. 

Mother is recorded as Beatrice May Gully Thomas

So this information turns out to be not relevant to your search for Charles Thomas WALKER ::)
He was not around in 1922 after all.

Thank you for the reply Sue.

Yes, as odd as it seems I do understand the weirdness. It seems that the 1920 daughter (I wonít mention names in case it upsets living relatives) didnít get on at all with her mother and step-siblings and was pretty much ignored by them all. The younger boy (Davis-Walker) is believed to have been fathered by a different man, likely to have been a DAVIS. When Beatrice was able to claim war medals for her first husband she signed over consent for a G A DAVIS to collect on her behalf. All very strange and as Iím typing this I see that you had posted a later reply. Beatrice shunned her daughter (and young granddaughter) when they turned up on her doorstep looking for help in the mid 1940ís not long before her death. It must have been a nasty family feud to have given up on a married and also abandoned daughter/sister to the point where she wasnít even named in the death notice.

When you fill in the family recollections as you have, I can see the reason for apparent inconsistencies in the records.  Quite hard to deal with for some of the family I'm sure.

I wonder if Charles Thomas WALKER changed his name and intentionally melted into the wider Australian population.

Thatís exactly what weíve been thinking but hoped that he slipped up somewhere and was able to be identified.
Do you know much about SA electoral rolls? They seem to be few and far between on Ancestry and making it harder to track the various members of the family in order to confirm some of the stories.

Hello. I have never used this site before but felt I should make an account after seeing your info re: Beatrice May Gully who is my great, great, great Grandma. Unfortunately I know very little of my family history beyond my Grandparents but am trying to track down information pertaining to Beatrice May Gullyís daughter, Dorothy Ruth Walker. Ideally Iím seeking a photo of her at any age as I have no idea what she looked like. How do we go about exchanging information if you would like to and have the time?
