Descendants of Henry Charles Fullford
Henry Charles Fullford was born was born on 19 Mar 1855 2, and baptised on 13 May 1855 in the C of E Parish of West Maitland, NSW; died 16 Jul 1933 3 in Newcastle, NSW, Australia, buried Sandgate Cemetery, Newcastle, NSW. He married Elizabeth Ellen Brown in 1875 4 in Maitland, NSW, Australia. Ellen, as she was known, died 9 Jun 1911 5 and was buried in Sandgate Cemetery.
A 1889 letter Henry wrote from #8 Union Street in Newcastle to his aunt Letitia Garmonsway in New Zealand apologised for his loss of the early family genealogy she had sent him - ‘I am sorry I have lost the letter you sent me with all the pedigree of the old people’. This letter also referred to -‘grandfathers brothers letters and other papers I have got here’. A 1870 letter mentioned the letters of Henry's grandmother Ann Gordon were destroyed after her 1868 death. So if these letters from Robert Gordon's brother John Gordon in Limerick, Ireland, and the documents referred to, have survived in Australia in the hands of a Henry Charles descendant they could contain early family history that will otherwise remain unknown. Letters written by Henry to an aunt in New Zealand, indicate from the sender's address that at least from 1884, Henry was employed at Newcastle by the Works Section of the NSW Government Railways 24. His 1933 newspaper obituary suggests he likely remained in that employment until retirement.
