  Research Notes:

source: Kate Lindsay who notes 1st white child born at Parkes & Goddaughter of Sir Henry Parkes

Jason Crosskey passed on a website by Tim Hill where it is noted:
She was apparently the first white child born at Parkes, and god-daughter of Sir Henry Parkes.

Hughena Grace Sutherland and John Hunter were divorced in March 1913 Four months previously, John had tried to divorce Hughena on the grounds of 'misconduct' with a Patrick Manus but this was dismissed. Hughena's petition against John was granted 'on the grounds of habitual cruelty, drunkenness and desertion'.
"Mrs. Hunter ... said that she and her husband for some time lived in a number of different Hotels and boarding houses. Her husband was frequently intoxicated, and had threatened to kill her. He had kept a pair of firetongs under his pillow on one occasion, with which he threatened to "do" for her. At another time he had a razor under his pillow. He had seized her by the throat, and torn her nightclothes from her. In 1906 she took a hotel at Wrightville, near Cobar, but her husband again drank heavily. At times, however, he was able to pull himself together, but he would again take to liquor. Twice he went across to New Zealand, and on one occasion was ill in the Cobar Hospital. Finally, witness gave up the hotel, and took a position as a housemaid." Hughena Grace Sutherland was very unfortunate in that both her sons were killed in the Great War, one in Gallipoli in 1915, the other in 1918 in 1918. She lived in 1938 at "The Cairo", Macleay St, Potts Point, Sydney, a home for returned soldiers which she ran.
