    History & Acheivements :

    Henry Strange Pillidge was born at Morpeth N.S.W. A pretty good assumption is that he was bought up on his father's farm at Largs . Eventually he started to make a move out on his own. Meeting Ruth at Mullumbimby,he married her and started to set out producing a family . Henry and Ruth farmed a property near Mullumbimby . They set up a farm at Wondai, Queensland ,at a small town called Wheatlands. This farm produced peanuts for the Queensland market of the time. They eventually moved to Banora Point N.S.W. near Tweed Heads building a house and farming on what is now known as Sexton's Hill.(the actual farm is now a motel and housing estate.)
    Henry and Ruth had 7 children, only 5 survived.The last 2 children, twins, boy & girl are buried side by side in bush graves in the Church of England section at Wondai Cemetery.The dates of their birth & death is unknown.
