Elizabeth (Lizzie) Gegg (nee Tickner)

James Albert GEGG1,2 (known as 'Jimmy'), son of William Lee (Snr) GEGG (1818-1855) and Sarah KING (1821?-1889), was born on 16 June 1850 in Rotherhithe, Surrey (pre-1888).3,4,5,6 He was baptised on 7 July 1850 at the Parish of St Mary in Rotherhithe.3,7 His relationship to John is Maternal Great (x1) Grandfather. On 7 July 1850 Jimmy resided at 6 Swan Lane in Rotherhithe. He was living there with his parents at the time of his baptism.7 In 1851 he resided in Southwark, Surrey. He was residing there with his parents.8 In 1861 he resided at the Royal Caledonian Asylum for Orphans in London, Middlesex (pre-1888). The Royal Caledonian Asylum for Orphans was an institution for orphans of Scottish parentage or the children of poor Scots living in London. He was resident there with his mother, sister Janet Ellen and brothers William Lee (Jnr) and George.9,10

In September 1862 (approx.) Jimmy received a testimonial from James Epps of Great Russell St in London . It stated he had employed James for 'some time'. Presumably this was meant to indicate that he was a reliable worker.11

he migrated from London to Port Phillip Bay Melbourne, Vic arriving on 13 October 1862. He came with his mother and siblings. They sailed from London on the "Donald McKay" and arrived on an unassisted passage paid for by his mother's friends James and Dinah Croker of Oallen near Windellama. They then travelled to Oallen. It is not known whether they travelled this last leg of the trip (Melbourne to Sydney) overland or by ship.12,13

On 15 August 1871 Jimmy was a farm labourer at "Camberfield" in Razorback, NSW.11 He married Elizabeth TICKNER on 15 August 1871 at St John's Church in Camden, NSW. As Lizzie was under 21 at the time of her marriage, the consent of her father had to be given for the marriage. The marriage was witnessed by Elizabeth's uncle John Tickner and John's daughter Eliza Florist Dengate.11,14,15,16,17



from 15 August 1871 Jimmy and Elizabeth TICKNER lived at the Camberfield area of the Camden district where Jimmy probably worked for John Tickner. Sometime after this they moved, along with some of the Tickners to the Bungonia and Windellama areas . At James's negligently branding trial on about 10 June, 1903 he deposed under oath that he had lived at Windellama, NSW for 30 years. So he and Lizzie arrived at Windellama c.1873. About 14 June 1903 they moved with their family to "Pineleigh", Common St Goulburn North, NSW. It consisted of portions 23 and 24 of No 1632 amounting to 39 acres and 2 roods. They lived there until their deaths.11,18,19 Between 1873 and 1903 he was a grazier in Windellama, NSW. He was a sheep grazier (as attested by his "famous" negligently branding trial) at Windellama.19,20 Between 1873 and 1903 he was a miner . He had many mining interests especially in the Marulan and Braidwood areas.19,21,22,23

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 20 January 1876 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post; He appeared as a witness in a case where Peter Tickner was charged with non residence on his conditional purchase of 50 acres at Cullulla. He was giving evidence to support Tickner.19

Between 1880 and 1900 Jimmy was a shopkeeper in Windellama. He ran a wine shop called The Junction Store. When the shop actually opened is not known but he wrote a letter to the Minister for Public Instruction on The Junction Store's letterhead on the 29 January 1881, so the store was operating from at least 1880. On 8 October 1897, in an article relating to him in the Goulburn Herald, he was described as a miner and storekeeper. The ending date of 1900 is only a guestimate but clearly he ceased having the shop somewhere between 1897 and 1903 (when he moved into Goulburn).

The book "A History of the Windellama Post Office 1863 - 1952 by Tomas H Bryant 2003, mentions the following :

"In October 1891 James Gegg of the Junction Store at Windellama made application to the Postal and Electric Telegraph Department to be allowed to sell stamps at his store. Mrs Cartwright [the Postmistress] wrote to the Department stating that she always had ample stocks of stamps and Mr Gegg could obtain stamps from her for use at his store. The Department declined Mr Gegg's application.".19,24,25

he owned property in Windellama. Jimmy and Lizzy prospered and eventually had extensive landholdings. They owned their main farm which was on the corner of Braidwood Rd and the road which led to the Sweeney property. It was on this land facing onto the Braidwood Rd that The Junction Store was located. They owned the land (in Windellama Rd) where the current Windellama school stands. The homestead in Windellama Rd was named "Fassifern" and in 1991 was still occupied by Gegg descendants. While not known for sure, it is probable that they owned land in the Braidwood and Marulan districts. In 1903 Jimmy and Lizzy moved to "Pineleigh" in Common St Goulburn. This was their final residence. They also owned a shop with a dwelling in Union St, Goulburn. As was the custom of the time all these properties were in Jimmy's name only.26,27

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 9 September 1882 in the Goulburn Herald; In a Land Court Inquiry, the transfer of 40 acres at Marulan originally selected by John Sweeney to James Albert Gegg was examined. There was a contention that Sweeney hadn't met the conditions of selection but this was dismissed allowing the purchase to go ahead.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 13 October 1883 in the Goulburn Herald; He was found guilty of allowing his horse to stray and was fined 5/- (Five shillings = 50c).19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 15 January 1884 in the Goulburn Herald; He was granted a slaughter licence.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 17 April 1886 in the Goulburn Herald; Report on the Coroner's investigation into the suicide of James Arthur Sidebottom who shot himself after being rejected by Jimmy's daughter, Martha.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 24 April 1886 in the Goulburn Herald; Letter to the editor advocating the route of a trainline from Marulan to Braidwood as being a better choice than Tarago to Braidwood.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 18 September 1886 in the Goulburn Herald; Notification of his conditional land purchase of 170 acres at Cullulla.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 24 May 1890 in the Goulburn Herald; In a Warden's Court hearing for partial suspension of the labour conditions required in his gold lease(s) near Bungonia, the warden stated that he would recommend to the Mines Department the concessions asked for.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 9 April 1892 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post; In the Warden's Court, James A Gegg lodged a complaint against George Whittaker to restrain him from interfering with the complainant's water right at Yellow Springs. The application was postponed, the water to be allowed to continue its usual course pending the settlement of the dispute.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 23 April 1892 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post; Continuation of the complaint against George Whittaker about water rights. The court decided that Whittaker had no right to the springs and ordered that the trespasses complained of should cease.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 25 August 1892 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post; A young man named Gegg, a resident of Windellama was on Wednesday handling a revolver which he did know was loaded when the weapon exploded, the bullet passing through one of his fingers and shattered the bone. He came into town to Dr McMaster, who dressed the wound. With the use of the term "a young man" this was probably one of Jimmy's sons.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 28 February 1896 in the Goulburn Herald; In the Warden's Court, James A Gegg, as agent for the Jerralong Gold Mining Company at Jerralong, applied for suspension of labour on a quartz reef at Jerralong on the Shoalhaven. Application granted. NB : Jerralong Gold Mining Company might be another avenue of research in mining records.19



Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 15 April 1896 in the Goulburn ? (Probably Herald). This was the initial report of James Sidebottom's suicide.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 17 April 1896 in the Goulburn Herald; Report on the Coroner's investigation into the suicide of James Arthur Sidebottom at the Gegg residence who shot himself after being rejected by Jimmy's daughter Martha. The Coroner found that the deceased died from a gunshot wound self inflicted.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 27 April 1896 in the Goulburn Herald; Report on a fund raising Ball held at J A Gegg's woolshed at Windellama in aid of the Goulburn hospital. This probably was the first of a number of annual Balls he held. His daughter Florist gives a description of the "fifth annual Ball" in 1900 as a composition task in her school workbook.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 8 October 1897 in the Goulburn Herald; In the Mining Court, there was an inquiry in regard to the applications of Jas Armstrong for the whole lease. J A Gegg appeared as a witness in this matter. Reading the transcript gives a feeling that he may have been appearing as an "expert" witness but this is not certain. The matter was to be decided by another inquiry of a similiar nature still to be heard.19 James was listed as a Magistrate in a list of magistrates published in the Sydney Morning Herald on 21 October 1899.28

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 9 February 1900 in the Goulburn Herald; :"Notice of Application has been given by James A Gegg, as agent for Peter J Brennan, of Sydney, for 100 acres of the bed and banks of Jembaicumbene Creek, parish of Boyle, commencing at the S.W. corner of portion 372 and upwards along the creek to the S.E. corner of portion 356, including part of Peters' and W. Roberts' grants, parish of Elrington".29

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 17 March 1900 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post; In a report from the local papers at Braidwood, J A Gegg was summonsed for using obscene language in the Royal Hotel, Braidwood. The charge was sustained. Defendant was fined 10s and 4s 10d costs.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 11 June 1903 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post; James A Gegg was charged with that he did at Windellama, about November last, negligently brand with his own brand a certain sheep of which he was not the owner. A full report is given of the day's proceedings. Given J A's status within the community plus the fact he was a magistrate, this was a sensational trial in its time. The trial continued into a second day.19 In June 1903 he was an orchardist and market gardener at "Pineleigh", Common St in Goulburn, NSW. He grew vegetables (among other things) for sale after he moved into Goulburn. On 12 Apr 1906 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post there was an advertisement as follows : "FOR SALE Fresh Picked Tomatoes, First-class Onions. Orders promptly attended to J.A. GEGG, Pineleigh, North Goulburn".19,30

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 13 June 1903 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post; Day two of the negligently branding trial continued. Detailed evidence was reported.

The PM said that the Bench had decided to convict. He regretted that Mr Gegg, being a magistrate, was before the court, but as it had been pointed out the Act was framed to protect stockowners, and they had to fine defendant.

Defendant was fined £1, with £2 witnesses' expenses, £3 3s professional fees, and 7s 4d court costs.

A second charge against defendant for cutting off more than a fourth of another sheep's ear was withdrawn.19

Jimmy was mentioned in a newspaper report on 13 June 1903 in the Goulburn Evening Penny Post; Report on the farewell party held at Windellama for James, Lizzie and the family prior to them leaving Windellama and moving into Goulburn to live at "Pineleigh".19

Gegg, James Albert : Independent : 208 : 3.95%

The last sentence over-briefly summarises what would appear to be a long and bitter dispute about the matter. Helen advises "Evidently there was a right old stoush between Elizabeth Cartwright and James Gegg, with petitions gathered in the area and a long, involved correspondence with the authorities. Some of this, at times quite heated, correspondence along with other bits and pieces from the historical Society collection was on show at the Windellama Country Fair in 2004".
