Richard TICKNER (1843-1925)

Richard TICKNER,1 son of Peter TICKNER (bef1815-1854) and Mary Ann CARPENTER (1818-1897), was born on 8 May 1843 in Camden, NSW.2 He was baptised on 2 July 1843 in Camden.2 He was a farmer . He farmed at Jacqua and "Lumley" in the Bungonia district.3

Richard was mentioned in a newspaper report on 8 November 1860 in the The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser (From the Goulburn Herald of 3 November); "Narrow Escape -- On Monday last, a young man named Richard Tickner was endeavouring to cross a creek in Dr. Strang's paddock. The water was very high, and Tickner endeavoured to cross on a narrow dam, but the horse shied, and he was precipitated into deep water. The force of the current carried him off his horse, and down the stream for three hundred or four hundred yards, when his brother Edward rushed into the water and managed to rescue him. The horse in the meantime swam out. Richard Tickner could not swim, and his escape, therefore, was little less than providential".4

Richard married Annie Emily NETTLETON on 23 December 1867 at Christ Church in Bungonia, NSW.2 In 1912 he was a carrier in Goulburn, NSW.3

Richard and Annie had 11 children :
