More from Ann
Dear Elizabeth, my apologies for not replying to your kind e-mail before this.
I presume that the two spellings on certificates for James' wife Ellen Ore or Hall could be as a result of Yorkshire accents in the mid 1800's.
For your interest my grandfather was the Francis Patrick Bullock mentioned in the new listing on your Wrathall Pioneer page. He married Martha Lewis in 1906 at Caulfield.
Their children were Francis Lewis Bullock (my father) born Caulfield 1907, Florence Ellen Bullock born Caulfield, James Bullock, born Germany, and Pamela Bullock, born England.
As this is Melbourne Cup time, I am adding the information that Francis Patrick Bullock rode the winner of the 1905 Cup on a horse called Blue Spec. James was born in Germany as my grandfather was a very successful jockey for the Kaiser at the time (prior to 1914)!
Ellen Wrathall's James was policeman and a "noted roughrider" according to a newspaper report the day after the Cup. Just a bit of back ground family history. Also on a website sometime ago I found a reference to a possible relationship between a Wrathall and a Pickersgill family in the late 1700's. Would that possibly be a relationship to your Wrathalls?
For you race folk
1905 Blue Spec was Owned by Mr P. A. Connolly, trained by W. Hickenbotham, jockey F. Bullock, was a Horse coloured Brown, aged 6 barrier 0 carrying 51 Kgs. Race had 27 starters, Scot Free was 2nd, and Tartan came 3rd, Odds: 10/1, Margin: 3/4 len, 1/2 len, Time: 3:27.5


From on Monday, 3 October 2011
He writes - my interest lies with the fact that my Grandmother, Margaret Argent (nee Webber) worked for Frank when he was in Newmarket England and often spoke fondly of looking after his children (as a sort of Nanny).
My mother remembers seeing photos of her mother and the children, but believes they were returned to Frank when he returned to Australia for the last time. Is it possible that the photos still exist or any references to my grandmother in any correspondence.
Regards, Martin Barrett, Newmarket England
