Hello Stephanie McEvoy thanks for getting back to me. Could you send me a photo of the house where Richard and Annie lived. Do you have any Birth, marriage or death certificates. I have afew. If you would like copies send me a post address and i'll send them over. Do you know the date Esther & John Carr and Richard Matchett came to Australia and what ship they sailed on. Yes you were right Esther and her second husband Henry Beak were successful beef producers here in Australia. They formed a pastoral company in 1905 called Henry Beak & Sons. They owned cattle properties. I know of 4 of them - May Downs, near Clermont and Calioran, near South Yaamba and Karkal, near Blackall and Pennard, near Rockhampton. All the properties were in Queensland. Henry and Esther Beak lived at Pennard. Esther Beak "Carr","Matchett" died at Pennard from influenza,heart failure she was 66 years old and is buried at Rockhampton cemetery. Esther had been in Australia for 45 years. Esther death certificate lists her as being born at Tartaragh, Armagh, Ireland. Esther & Henry son William was also successful in the family company. He was instrumental in forming the Australia Poll Hereford Breeders Association. He was made a life member of the American Poll Hereford. He was also appointed an M.B.E. for services to the beef industry. William died 05/06/1966.The company was dissolved in 1929. Henry Beak parents were William & Mary Ann Whitehead. Henry Beak was born at Birmingham, Warwickshire, England. Esther son John Carr from her first marriage to John Carr was left out of the will when Henry & Esther Beak died. John Carr had worked for his stepfather as a Horse Drover in 1891. Richard Matchett death certificate list his death as being from Chronic Bronchitis in 25/06/1905 at the Blackall hospital. He is buried at the Blackall cemetery. Richard Matchett had been in Australia for 47 years. He is listed as a farmer at the time of his death so maybe he was managing Karkal, cattle proerty for Henry Beak. The death certificate lists his wife as being Emily Clifford. They were married at Duncreagh, Armagh, Ireland. Richard was 19 years old when he married Emily. Richard and Emily had a daughter called Emily. Emily was 46 years lod when Richard died. Richard parents were Richard & Jane Matchett. In the Sydney Morning Herald dated 29/11/1918 there is a will for a Annie Matchett who lived at Northoota, near Moree in New South Wales. She had $35128 in property and livestock when she died. I look forward to hearing back from you and finding out about Richard & Annie Matchett and Esther & John Carr when they were in Ireland.
