      [Thomas Waze.GED]

      DEATH: Caused by cancer of the abdomen. At age 64.

      RESIDENCES: Born at New St. Melton Mowbray. Died at 49 Rosser St. Balmain Sth.
      Lived at Dillon's Bay (late1872)and Elizabeth Bay (early 1873), Erromanga, Vanuatu.
      Lived at 2 Glasgow Terrace, (nos.57,59,61 & 63) MacQuarie St..South (now Commonwealth St.) (see " Surry Hills " , the City's Backyard by Christopher Keating) when Walter Brett Jnr. was born (14 Sep. 1874), and 31 Hutchinson St., Surry Hills when Sydney John was born (3 Nov. 1883).

      OCCUPATIONS: Cook-Steward on Missionary Barque " Dayspring " (1871)- managed a Cotton plantation at Vanuatu (1873) - Chief Cook at Sydney Temperance Hall (1878-1893).

      GENERAL NOTES: The Dayspring first arrived, from where she built in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, at Sydney, on about 14th Jan. 1865, after settling the Gordons, McCullaghs and the Morissons on their several stations in the islands. Captain Fraser was likely the Captain in command. The journey had taken 14 months. (left Halifax Oct 1863).

      The Dayspring arrived at Portland, Victoria, 21 April 1871 from Belfast (Port Fairy). Atkinson's Plan of the Special Survey 1850, Port Fairy, including the Township of Belfast, shows the Moyne River flowing into the Belfast Lough.

      The Dayspring left Portland on 22 April 1871 with the following passengers- Dr Geddie, Mrs Paton & 3 children, & a white servant ( may be Elizabeth Ann). Arrived New Hebrides (Vanuatu) 17 May 1871. See full file on Vanuatu etc. etc. Was given a grant of land by a native chief. Copy held by Donald Allen.

      Walter and Elizabeth were married on board the Paragon on 13th Dec. 1871. Walter was a member of the crew.

      Schooner Paragon (renamed Dayspring) 159 Tons, left New Hebrides to Sydney 29 September 1873
      Benjamin Jenkins Master, Walter Allen Cook & Steward (aged 26 born Melton) Rev J.E. Paton, Mrs Paton & 4 children, & servant, Rev. J. Copeland, Mrs Copeland, & 3 children, Rev J. Goodwill, Mrs Goodwill, & 32 children, Mrs Allarn.

      Log of Logs Vol 2
      1874 ML Sydney - D388 includes Custom's permit to bring Missionary Barque from Aneitum (Vanuatu) to Sydney for Registration March 1874, as well as Declaration re ownership of wreck of Dayspring 18-3-1874. (returned to Vanuatu 18 Aug. 1874)

      NOTE The ship Paragon was built in Balmain, launched in January 1873 & later renamed Dayspring 2.

      FUTURE RESEARCH: Would like to know when & how Walter first came to the area. Before Birth of Walter Brett Jnr. (10 Sept. 1874)
