Edna Olive BURLEY (1904-1961)

Edna Olive BURLEY,1 daughter of Unknown (M) UNKNOWN ( - ) and Rachel Elizabeth BURLEY (1883-1963), was born on 6 September 1904 in Texas, Qld.2,3,4 She married Arthur Edward AUSTIN on 17 April 1922 in Qld.5,6

she died (aged 56) on 15 April 1961 in Silverspur, Qld.7,8

 

She was raised by her grandparents (John Williams BURLEY and Sarah Jane nee PARTRIDGE) as their child rather than Rachel's.

(In an interview with Rachel's other daughter, Sylvia, she referred to her as "Aunty Edna". While Syl may have known about the situation, when asked to name Rachel's siblings she named Edna as one of them. Family photos from the time always show the children of John and Rachel but Edna is never in them.).9

 

Researcher Vicki Crowther says "My Mum, Patricia Crowther, granddaughter of Rebecca Burley, spoke about Edna and when she was dying of cancer my great grandmother, Rebecca said Edna should be told who her mother was, but Mum said they never did.".10
