    My family grew up in St Marys NSW. I remember my parents talking about the Mottershead family, I think my parents were friends with Bill Mottershead. I wonder if yours is the same family?. My parents are Gordon William (Bill Green) and Olive Irene Green (Dec). We lived in little Chapel St St Marys.

    • Well, Lawrence Green, who would have thought you would find me here? 😀 We know each other, we played together as children, you, me and Pam! I remember you had an older brother, Johnny, and sister too, Carol! When I was born, we lived in Little Chapel Street, and our parents were friends. When we moved to the Blue Mountains, I remember visiting your family a few times; you had budgies, and to this day, when I hear a budgie singing, it reminds me of your family…happy childhood memories. 🙂 I’m sorry to hear that you have lost your mum. Your dad, Bill, must be a good age now, around his early 90’s, I’m guessing? You are right in guessing that Bill Mottershead was from the same family, he was my uncle, and lived at St. Mary’s for many years.

      I have a memory of you and Pam visiting us with your parents when we lived in the Blue Mountains. It was raining that day, and we played a game of “elastics” on our big front veranda…I don’t know if that will jog your memory at all, but it was the last time I remember seeing you all.

      Thank you so much for leaving a comment here, you’ve really made my day, getting in touch like this. 🙂

    Hi Jo, Eric Williams, was my Father-in-Law and his Mother was Rebecca Ann Mottershead married to Hugo Vernon Williams, in Chorlton, Lancashire, 1915. I have enjoyed your stories, thank you. Eric came to Australia after his Mother’s death.


    • Hi Margaret.

      I haven’t come across the name Rebecca Ann Mottershead in my family tree yet, but who knows? We could have a connection. 🙂

      I’m pleased to hear you have enjoyed my stories and hope you visit again. ~ Jo.
