& 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.
