    1. [HHHV] Roadworks at State Records
    2. Bill
    3. Good Morning List, During this week I attended State Records where I have not been for a while and found that O’Connell Street, the road outside State Records is to be closed for several months from tomorrow so that it can be completely rebuilt. This seriously affects access to State Records and an alternative access has been created at the front of State Records, but to get to it from the Great Western Highway, Gipps Street, Sunflower Drive and O’Connell Street will have to be used. Importantly for people attending by bus there will be a twenty minute walk from the nearest Bus Stop during these works. I have a copy of the information from State Records so email me off list if needed. Sincerely, Bill Shute --- This email has been checked for viruses by AVG. https://www.avg.com

Yes, I did come across the wife of one of the Christies brothers Samuel Tolfrey Christie, that she was with him at Lucknow. When she returned to England she was never the same and died in an asylum. The Christie brothers served some time in the NSW Colony. Actually Samuel Tolfrey Christie was involved in an incident called the 'Waterloo Creek Massacre' or Slaughterhouse Creek Massacre' which took place near the Gwydir River, with Major James Nunn. He and Nunn were in the 80th Foot Regiment of Mounted Police. Samuel left the Colony when he had served his time here, however William his brother remained and became the first Post Master General in the Colony.

I have an interest in this subject, particularly the wives left behind when the soldiers served overseas. Some wives were permitted to accompany the men and served in the role of cooks, washerwomen and nurses. There were regulations regarding the ratio of women to soldiers. My understanding so far is that surplus wives were left behind. You have given me a bit of an idea about how they may have survived.

Yes, I did come across the wife of one of the Christies brothers Samuel Tolfrey Christie, that she was with him at Lucknow. When she returned to England she was never the same and died in an asylum. The Christie brothers served some time in the NSW Colony. Actually Samuel Tolfrey Christie was involved in an incident called the 'Waterloo Creek Massacre' or Slaughterhouse Creek Massacre' which took place near the Gwydir River, with Major James Nunn. He and Nunn were in the 80th Foot Regiment of Mounted Police. Samuel left the Colony when he had served his time here, however William his brother remained and became the first Post Master General in the Colony.

    3. I purchased "Following the Drum" online through eBay and it wasn't excessively expensive. Someone else had recommended it to me.

To follow up on UK military connections, I suggest that you go to the website for TNA (The National Archives) (UK); then use their catalogue search facility. If you enter the surname COMPTON that might give you some results. A more targeted search, using the WO code (for War Office) as well as the name of COMPTON should give results only pertaining to the military — but ever since they changed form their former Procat site, I have been unable to learn how to incorporate that into current searches.

Another family I had researched for a friend, the Christies, were a Military family for generations and the two brothers, with their wives and children were moved from Lancashire to the Isle of Wight, where at that time were many families of troops who were stationed overseas. Thank you very much for the information regarding the book and just maybe there could be information about the family's connection to the Military.
