From: "Anne & Tom Tussup" on Mon, 13 Jun 2005
Hi Elizabeth
Thank you very much for your swift response, and don't worry about my privacy I am interested in learning as much as possible about my family history. I was aware that Thomas Andrew had been married to Henrietta, Farina and Olive but did not know the dates. It appears Gertrude (if they were ever actually married) was between Henrietta and Farina.
As far as I know Thomas Andrew and Gertrude Tussup had three children:
Thomas Henry born on 18/10/1905 in Collingwood Melbourne. I have a copy of his birth certificate which records Thomas and Gertrude were married in Melbourne on 4/10/1905 on the birth record Thomas has given his name as Thomas Tusupa so the child was registered as Thomas Henry Tusupa
Harold (my father) born on 31/12/1906 in New Zealand. My father never had a birth certificate apparently his birth was never registered with New Zealand Births, Deaths & Marriages. As you can imagine this caused my father some problems throughout his life but did not stop him from serving with the Australian Army during World War 2
Basil the youngest brother who was also born in New Zealand. For some unknown reason Basil was left in New Zealand when the family returned to Australia (I have no idea of the dates when the family left and returned to Australia). Basil, Harold and Thomas were reunited a number of times both in Australia and NZ later in life (in the 50's, 60's and early 70's).
With regard to the original 9 children Henry Tussup was killed, I think, overseas in World War 1 (I will check this at Australian War Memorial). Thomas Andrew and Olive Mary eventually settled in Bega, New South Wales, and as far as I know died there (I will also check on this).
It has always been family folklore that "Tussup" was not the original family name. I don't know if your research has thrown up anything on this but if it has I would be very interested to know. It was always said that Spiridione changed it to make it easier in English. I have no idea if there is any truth in this matter.
Many thanks
Tom Tussup
