165 (Medical):Ref:The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893) ,Wednesday 20 December 1854"Melancholy Accident.-On Saturday afternoon last,two daughters of Mr. Henry Adams, of the Black Horse,Mary, aged 14 or 15, and Emily, aged 13, went to bathe in the Hunter, a little above Potts's Point, where the water is deep. Miss Mary Adams had not long returned from Sydney, where she had learned to swim, and in spite of the fears of her sister and of a Mrs. Geelan, who lives near the spot, and accompanied them to the water side, she persisted in swimming out into the river; she had gone but a short distance when she turned to come back, and to the horror of Mrs. Geelan and her sister she appeared to have been seized with cramp, not being able to swim on. The poor girl called to her sister to get a pole to reach to her, but the only piece of stick near (a slab) proved too short. Meanwhile Mrs. Geelan had called out for assistance, and the only man within hearing, Arthur Thompson, ran down, and got into the water as far as he dared, not being able to swim, but was unable to reach the sinking girl, who, after vainly paddling about for some moments with the only hand she could use (her legs appearing stiff,) sunk in deep water. Mr. Hungerford, who lives not far off, was attracted to the spot by the cries, but unhappily too late,for although he swam across, and dived until exhausted, he could not find the body. Every search was made by her parents and friends, and by the police, but it was not until Monday morning that the body was recovered, being then found floating in the river. An inquest was held on Monday, by Mr. Parker, and a verdict of accidental death returned." ADAMS, Mary (I25711)

Although the coroner returned a open finding -the family have always maintained that James travelled by ferry to Circular Quay on the 11th August with the intention to keep an appointment with his lawyer in Sydney (city). The purpose of this appointment was to purchase further property in Manly. He had a large sum of money in his wallet for this purchase. Although, he was a very astute and a careful gentleman, it is believed by the family that he was murdered and robbed. He was found floating between the wharf and the rope tied ferry at Circular Quay. When James' body was recovered he had sustained severe injuries, which at the time were attributed to being between the wharf and ferry together with the tidal (swell) movement. Many believe he was assaulted, robbed, and pushed into Sydney Harbour.His wallet and money were not on his person and were never found.

On 19 November 1941, Sydney was involved in a mutually destructive engagement with the German auxiliary cruiser Kormoran, and was lost with all 645 aboard. The wrecks of both ships were lost until 2008; Sydney was found on 17 March, five days after her adversary. Sydney's defeat is commonly attributed to the proximity of the two ships during the engagement, and Kormoran's advantages of surprise and rapid, accurate fire.

175 (Medical):The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893)Tuesday 17 December 1878 -Melancholy Death by Drowning. "We regret very much to have to report the death by drowning of a fine lad, the eldest son of Mr. H. J. Adams, J.P. ; and the narrow escape of members of three other of our leading families, Mr. Bertie Wolfe, third son of Mr. James E. Wolfe, J.P., Mr. Jas. H.Brunker, second son of Mr. J. N. Brunker,J.P., and Mr. Charles Prentice. Mr. Wolfe had formed a fishing party, including himself,Mr. J. E. Wolfe, jun., and these five young men, to spend a few days at Lake Macquarie. The party were at Mr. Williamson's, Belmont,not far from the centre of the Lake, on Saturday, and thought of going out for the day in a sailing boat. Mr. Wolfe, however, had business early in the day some little distance from Lake Macquarie. Lake Macquarie is a beautiful sheet of saltwater, somewhat larger than Port Jackson, we think. About sixteen miles long, and from one mile to three miles broad, it opens out into so many bays and arms, that its shore line is about 100 miles-all round-and is popularly supposed to be three hundred miles round. It communicates with the sea by a long narrow mouth, of shallow water; and this mouth and the entrance are now under process of improvement by a dredge, at Government cost, to make it navigable for larger craft.These features make the Lake a delightful excursion place, if persons accustomed to its varying winds (as points are opened up) are on board; but dangerous to unaccustomed persons. All five of the young men were accustomed to boats, but only young Mr. Wolfe and Mr. Brunker were Lake-men. Mr. Wolfe, senior, knows the Lake well, as a yacht owner, and sailor .The weather calmed after Mr. Wolfe's departure, and Mr. Brunker, Mr. Bertie Wolfe,Mr. Chas. Prentice, and Mr. George Adams,about ten o'clock, started in a sailing boat down the Lake, to fish. From Mr. Williamson's some five or six miles of the Lake, southerly, is in view, and about one mile of the Lake looking North. The favourite fishing and sailing ground is southerly, through the broadest part of the sheet ; and which would take the party near the sea entrance. When Mr. Wolfe returned to Mr. Williamson's he was disappointed to find that the boat had not returned. And as time went on, an no signs appeared of the boat, both Mr. Wolfe and Mr.Williamson got greatly alarmed, and burnt blue lights, sent word along the shores nearest them, and remained out till very late that Saturday night ADAMS, Henry George (I25703)

179 (Research):
The Makim name is recorded in the 1674 Hearth Money Rolls for Staffordshire ,U.K and it is quite possible a branch of this family was transplanted by the English landlords to Tipperary in Ireland ,to run their farms in that area.This will require additional research to ascertain a link,if any.

(Record keepers and census takers assumed that tenant farmers ,labourers and servants were all illiterate,which many were in fact, and would use the phonetic spelling i.e they wrote the name as it sounded,resulting in much confusion in later times when researching family history) Some possible variations are Makem, Macom, Macoom, Meakom

Makemie, McKemey was a name not uncommon in the Fanad area of Northern Ireland in the 17th and 18th century ,and McKim,McKimm was of the Ramelton area.

191 (Research): The Charteris family of Amisfield and Kilpatrick's of Kirkmichael were constantly feuding. In Pitcairn's Criminal Trials, voume 1, under date March 19 and 20, 1526, John Charteris of Amisfield, Robert and John his sons, Robert Charteris his brother and thirty-nine others, found caution to underlie the law on May 29, in the Tolbooth of Edinburgh, for the slaughter of Roger Kilpatrick, son and heir of Sir Alexander Kilpatrick(sic) of Kirkmichael,Knight, and for the mutilation of the latter; and on the 24th of the same month, Sir Alexander Kilpatrick and his sons, Robert, John, and William, found caution to appear the same day to answer for all crimes to be imputed against them by John Charteris of Amisfield.

He also became security for the entry of William Kilpatrick, his brother, the two sons of the latter, and twenty-three others the same day.

Information recorded here regarding Alexanders children was passed onto Rev. Louis Bezuidenhout, Minister at Kirkmichael, as part of a folio of old papers connected with the parish. The original is a typewritten document, over 18 pages, but there are some blanks and question marks in the original text, which suggest the typescript ,c1919, may itself have been a transcription of an earlier, possibly handwritten, paper.Further provenance of the paper has not been found

192 (Research): The name given to the valley of the River Nith, Nithsdale is the westernmost of the three ancient divisions of Dumfries-shire and was sometimes referred to as Strathnith or Stranith. It stretches from South Ayrshire to the Solway coast and includes the settlements of Dumfries, Thornhill, Closeburn, Sanquar and Kirkconnel.

The Kirkpatrick family possessed estates in Nithsdale and Annandale as early as the 8th century. Situated on the border ,they were continually engaged in fights and fueds,which make a family historian's task somewhat difficult.

In 1570 the Earl of Sussex entered Nithsdale with an army of 4000,and sacked Closeburn.

In 1646 Douglas and others plundered Closeburn and removed "what was anyway transportable"

In 1748 Closeburn was burnt to the ground,all family portraits and furniture,with the greatest part of all papers and documents were consumed.

There are still ,however,sufficient documents,private and public,to enable a fairly accurate pedigree.

In 1685 the Kirkpatricks' loyalty to Charles I of England was rewarded with a baronetcy,of Nova Scotia.

In the late 17th century the Kirkpatricks moved out of Closeburn Castle to an adjacent, newly built manor house. However, this burned down in 1748, with the castle sustaining some damage. Renovations were made to the castle, and the family moved back into the Keep. The Kirkpatrick family finally sold Closeburn in 1783 to a local minister Dr James Stewart-Menteith. It has since changed hands several times, but is still occupied as a dwelling house. Today it is back in Kirkpatrick hands after being purchased by Don Luis Guillermo Kirkpatrick - O'Donnell of the Spanish family.

Estates were held at various times at Fairlee, St. Cross and Mount Pleasant in the parishes of Carisbrooke and Whippingham and also in the Undercliff at Niton, centred on Windcliffe. There were smaller landholdings elsewhere. By the early 20th century the landholdings at Mount Pleasant once the heart of the estate were being divided up and sold for development, and the core of the landholdings passed to Niton."
