Richard Gray Worcester - Visit to USA?
Richard visited the USA in 1950, but it appears he was resident there from 9 Feb 1950 to 30 Aug 1950. On his immigration document for his return flight to the USA from England on 3 Oct 1950, he gives his address as 2813 28th Street, Washington DC and his purpose of visit "to resume residence".
He gives his wife, Anne Rosemary's address as Taplow, Buckinghamshire, so was this likely to be just a short term residence?

Sylvia Worster - Obituary (2006)
Sylvia Worster - Obituary (2006)
o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2006-02-11 published WORSTER, Sylvia (May 20, 1954-January 26, 2006) It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Sylvia WORSTER in Winnipeg. She will be dearly missed by her son, William FINES; parents, Agnes and Alex WORSTER; sister, Louise and brother-in-law, Geoff FOSTER; brother, Paul and niece, Katie and nephew, Simon; William's father, Kent FINES; and many other relatives and friends. Sylvia grew up in Winnipeg, graduating from Garden City Collegiate in 1971. She lived most of her adult life in Toronto, but lived in Winnipeg during the last year and a half. Sylvia was loved for her sweetness, kindness and her deep feeling for the well-being of others. We were in awe of her determined nature, intelligence and independent spirit. We share her love for her son William and her pride in him as he pursues his studies at the University of Guelph. Her goodness will always be with us. A memorial service was held in Winnipeg on February 2. If friends wish, donations may be made in Sylvia's memory to The Nature Conservancy of Canada, 110 Eglinton Ave. West, Suite 400, Toronto, Ontario M4R 1A3 or a charity of their choice.

Fifty Years of Sail in the New Zealand Trade, 1850 to 1900


The Waikato, a well-found ship of 1021 tons, flying the New Zealand Shipping Co.'s flag, was a real clipper, and completed many fast voyages out and home. Of twelve passages outwards only three exceeded 100 days.

In 1878 Captain Worster reported leaving Plymouth with 298 immigrants and nine saloon passengers on October 21, and passed the Lizard the same day, with the Lactura in company.

Thomas Wooster Convicted of Theft (1828), Transported and Killed by a Bull (1844)
Thomas Wooster Convicted of Theft (1828), Transported and Killed by a Bull (1844)
Thomas Wooster was accused, along with John Munday and William Dimmock of breaking into the house of Sarah Parsons at Grendon Underwood and stealing money and goods to the value of twenty-four pounds.


He was subsequently convicted and transported for life to Australia.


Transportation Register. Note his co-defendant William Dimmock is the next name on this list.


Thomas also appears on a Prison record, where more details are found.


Thomas married Mary Gray in Melbourne, Victoria and his name is spelled variously as Wooster and Worster; his widow married as Woster and his three children grew up always spelled Worcester.


In 1844 he was killed by a bull and on his gravestone his age is given as 33 and does not tally with the other evidence. Could this have been a mistake by the stone mason, 33 instead of 38?


Thomas was working from the River Murray area - Wahgunyah at a property called "The Pelican".


His two sons became the pioneers of Omeo and Benambra (Gippsland Alps area) - still cattlemen. Same with most of the next generation - then two Worcester brothers became gynaecologists (plus their cousins who were regularly locked up !!)


We have plenty of information about him but who is he? There doesn't appear to be a good fit on the GWT.

Transcript of Postcard From Australia to the Bell Inn, Stoke Mandeville
Postcard found in the possessions of EE Clipson
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Addressed to Mr Arthur Wooster, Bell Inn, Stoke Mandeville, Aylesbury, Bucks, England.
Postcard of Native Bullock Cart, Ceylon and posted in Australia.

Dear Arthur and Ede,
We are getting near our destination now. This is a typical picture of what we saw in Ceylon, had a 3 hour drive round the different native villages. They have oxen to draw the carts about here, horses in the carriages. There were in some parts, coach painters, Builders yards and Smiths shops, in fact we could have got a job ourselves, as they wanted carpenters, it was posted up on the gates, did not think anything about it as it is such a hot climate. There is a large Liptons tea factory. Mostly natives work there. The people are only half dressed, but it is a lovely place. Hope you are keeping well. We are A1, it has been very hot through the tropics. We are 9 days between Colombo and Freemantle, nothing but water did not even see another boat. Love to all Yours Jim.

William Henry Worster to Wooster
William Henry Worster to Wooster
William later changed his name to "Wooster" to disassociate from the
sauce maker. William attended St John's Church of England school and also worked
with his father on the Sydney to Granville railway line at aged 12, later as dobbin
driver, and became a noted schoolmaster and an authority on astronomy, microscopy,
and other studies that he lectured on.
William lived on the estate of John Lackey clearing and helping supply billets for the railway engines. In
1861 he worked some years whip making, probably at Hodgson's factory along with his sister Susannah. He
also spent two years studying for the ministry in the Church of Christ, but returned to teaching, and
continued preaching for sixty years. William opened a free
night school for children after becoming a public school teacher and lodged with Mr.Jas. Murray, teacher at
the Parramatta Public School.
