  • Notes 
    • “Ommaney” on father’s death cert.: presumably this name was given by his mother, Elizabeth Peters, nee Knight when she gave the details of her family to the recording officer.

      “Ormsby” - Mary Alice Ormsby married Edmund Henry Pery, Ist Earl of Limerick
      One of her descendants, H V Pery married the Annie, the sister of Emily Peters nee Hooper

      no marriage cert in NSW, not married on death cert
      1903 census; 221 1/2 Castlereagh St Sydney; watchman
      In his sister-in-law's (Emily Peters) letter to her son Ernest in South Africa, she said he had been charged with stealing at about midnight one night. The tone of her letter indicates he was not someone they wished to be associated with. His brother James bailed him out and paid for a lawyer to get him off "for the sake of the family".
      Died aged 78 of "Auricular Fibrillation" in State Home at Lidcombe. Stated on death cert to be normally resident in Paddington. Mother stated to be Lily Chambers and place of birth Manly on death cert. No relatives at burial. Looks like a pauper's burial.
      of Castlereagh St, Sydney 1903; d cert 22110
