Note

Richard Sterland notes:

After William disappeared, Elizabeth was stranded in Newcastle and had to raise 4 young children alone. Due to their financial situation, the two eldest boys Alpheus or Edward Alpheus and John William, could not continue their education and became errand boys in a printing firm delivering the early Newcastle newspaper. Later John William seved his time in the shoe-making trade and owned his own business in Newcastle at the age of 16 years. Later the family moved to Balmain where John William did an apprenticeship in the plumbing and gas-fitting trade."
