Francis Ruth Hargreaves

William (Ambrose or Pivott) Lucas

  • Born: Cal 1869, Ipswich, Suffolk 2
  • Marriage: Francis Ruth Hargreaves on 9 Aug 1902 in Queensland 1
  • Died: 10 Aug 1952, Queensland

  General Notes:

Age at marriage and death suggest he was born about 1868. The 1871 census has his age as what looks like "1" but the entry is unusually above the James whose age is shown as 7. His Qld Marriage has his middle name as "Pivott" but this would be unusual with his older brother George with the same middle name. Hios 1871 birthplace is given as Ipswich and the only likely freebmd entry is for a William Ambrose Lucas Apr to Jun 1869.

From Michelle Stephenson ........

"His brother William Pivott Lucas (my Great Grandfather) was also involved in the rivers up there - starting as an oysterman on a camp at South Heads Mary River. He was a Govt., Lamp Trimmer (South Heads, Mary River) at 33 yrs - around time of marriage to wife Francis Ruth (Nee: Hargreaves) 9th August 1902.

Then he shows up on his son James William's Marriage Certificate (19th October, 1927) as being in the Pilot Service (No certificate found as yet). Then the only other thing found is his death registration in Maryborough stating he was a retired Lighthouse keeper (passed away on the 10th August 1952 - age 83yrs). They had lived Gympie Road, Tinana.

One of his grandsons recall he possible worked in the lighthouse on Frazer Island (would this be Sandy Cape?)"
