  • Notes

    • According to ancestry member "hmallins" who appears to be well sourced with the history of the family in Australia

      Thomas was a printer and worked in the newspaper industry. Records show he worked for 'Bendigo Independent' and Warrnambool Independent' newspapers. In those days they used lead in the print and this was the cause of ill health and the reason he retired.
    • From stories shared over time, it appears Thomas L Wharton saw a great deal of sadness during his childhood in Wales and England. One of the reasons he gave for having one child (Irene Mildred Wharton) was he did not wish to see another woman suffer as his mother had ... He remembered every year a small white coffin being taken from the house as a sibling died.

      After the 1881 Census, Thomas saw an advertisement and applied to work his passage to Australia as a valet for a wealthy merchant. He signed off in Melbourne and tried to find work in the printing trade but ended up doing labouring work including digging trenches to drain the swamps at Kooweerup in Victoria. Slowly but surely life got better for Thomas and he found work in the newspaper industry and started his own business in North Fitzroy. Over his life "IRENE" was a lucky name for him. He came to Australia on the ship 'Irene', married the love of his life Mildred Irene Beattie and had a cherished daughter who was named Irene. His grandchildren remember him as a caring, intelligent man who loved reading and learning about the world. He and Mildred were keen gardeners and had extensive gardens in their homes over many years.
