  General Notes:

Included as a result of photo in Lavinia's album. No Oswald Bubbs appear in the Vic BDM. The only Oswald Bubb found was the Oswald Charles Warner Bubb shown below who seems to diasppear from England after 1871 so this is likely him. (especially as he seems to turn up in the Tweed area of NSW just after).

This publication was produced in or around 1919 and refers to soldiers who fought in World War I (1914-1918) and who came from or had family in the Northern Districts of New South Wales and Southern Queensland. Parents and loved ones were usually responsible for the information supplied and some payment was required for the entries to be made. Because of this NOT ALL SERVICE PERSONNEL were listed in the publication.

The Society holds a copy of the publication. Similar books were produced for other areas of the State and in other States of Australia.

Most entries also include a photograph. The Service Number if known, or listed in the publication, is given in brackets.

Copies of Extracts: available from Richmond River Historical Society (See Information and Fees Schedule.)

AFS - page number in the publication.
Service Number is given in brackets. If no number appears the entry is given as (n.n.). If nothing appears in brackets after the name the entry refers to a person mentioned in an article.
(rejected) means rejected at some time for active service in armed forces. Apparently it was quite important that people knew a man had tried to enlist. Otherwise he might be sent a white feather as a symbol of cowardice.
(child) refers to a son or daughter of a serviceman.
Other entries should be self-explanatory.

He was registered as Samuel John Chapman Huxham and adopted the names of John Saunders later.

After occasional visits to Australia in six years as a merchant seaman, he settled in Sydney in 1879 as a bookseller's accountant. On 25 December 1884 at St Silas Anglican Church, Waterloo, he married Eliza Jane Bubb; they had five children.
Huxham went to Townsville, Queensland, in 1889 as accountant for Alfred Shaw & Co., general merchants, and transferred in April 1893 to their Brisbane office. He became manager of Pollard & Co., music and instrument retailers. When the firm closed, he and a partner, Alex McKenzie, in 1908 founded John Huxham & Co., importer and sporting and musical goods retailer. After his wife died in 1896 he married on 13 October 1897 a widow Helen Julia Meiklejohn, née Dougherty; they had one daughter.
