Longnose

(Gosford walkies)

Overcast and cold here today. But I managed to get a few photos in before the clouds closed over. Went up to Longnose (the old name for Point Frederick) to the old cemetery. It's a park now, has been since the 1970s. The last burial there was in the 1920s or 30s and the first ones in the 1840s. They didn't need a big cemetery back then. The population of Gosford was 53 in 1848 and still under 200 in 1871 when the first school was built.

Koolewong & Tascott from Pioneer Park Point Frederick. Didn't go right down to the water's edge for some reason.

Creighton family at Point Frederick Pioneer Cemetery
(Big version)

Not sure yet but these are probably the Creightons of the Art Deco funeral parlour fame.

"ROBERT CREIGHTON
WHO DIED 19th DEC 1915
AGED 83 YEARS
ALSO
DULCIBELLA
BELOVED WIFE
DIED 29th FEB 1920"

The right side of the plaque was mostly illegible. Only the name Robert can be made out. The names and dates are transcribed on the brass plaque:

"REBECCA
Died 27 JUNE 1895
Aged 2 years 5 months

ROBERT
Died in WA 23 April 1899
Aged 30 years"

WA is Western Australia.

Family historians looking for names in the Point Frederick cemetery, I'll put the list of names up next week. There's also a few more headstones up on flickr.

Robert Creighton's headstone in Pioneer Park cemetery Point Frederick

I like this one. Modest and unassuming. And legible.

"In Loving Memory Of
ROBERT CREIGHTON
Aug. 1872 Aged 84 Years
Also ELIZA
Wife OF THE ABOVE
Died Aug. 1878 Aged 89 Years".

Worley family headstone at Pioneer Park cemetery Point Frederick
(Big version)

This headstone's been through the wars. Dickheads get into old cemeteries sometimes and damage headstones and trees can fall in storms and hit them and so on.

"JOHN EARL STRADLING WORLEY
WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE
JANUARY 30th 1884
AGED 32 YEARS

[verse ommitted]

AND TO
LUCY LOUISA
WIFE OF THE ABOVE
WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE
NOVEMBER 23rd 1842
AGED 84 YEARS

[verse ommitted]

ALSO AUSTRAL LOUISE
DAUGHTER OF ABOVE
DIED 13th APRIL 1947"

Austral is an unusual name, never come across it before. It means 'of the south' (Australia means 'south land') so perhaps she was born in Australia and her in England.

Ranyard family headstone at Pioneer Park cemetery Point Frederick
(Big version)

I like this book style headstone.

"In Loving Memory Of
HERBERT RANYARD
DIED 18th JULY 1911
Aged 71 Years
ERECTED BY HIS WIFE
AND CHILDREN

ALSO
MARY
ANN RANYARD
HIS BELOVED WIFE
DIED 18th JULY 1921
AGED 72 YEARS"

Elderly dog Spears Street park Point Frederick
(Big version)

Somebody's dog sniffing about in the tiny park at the end of Spears Street on the west side of Longnose.

The old cemetery's a nice spot for a picnic in the shade and you can see across into Caroline Bay on the left (east) and down to Woy Woy to the south. Fair amount of birds twittering in the native trees too. Altogether a nice spot.

At the cemetery end of the point there's a lot of fugly seventies houses and a few seventies and eighties scattered about the whole point. Plenty of nineties and noughties building too. But there's plenty of nice old houses as well. Lots of bungalows and some Federation cottages as well. It's getting near my dinner time on a cold evening so you'll have to wait for those and the names from the cemetery until next week.

aerlier this year.lovely spot, as you pointed out spike.so much of interest.

Spike said...

Yep. Rather lovely name. My rusty latin suggests it means 'sweet beauty'.

The more I learn about this place the more interesting it gets. A Dear Old Thing told me her kids used to play in the Point Fred cemetery in the 1960s. It was all overgrown then and they loved it.

I've seen a few rabbits but I'm yet to bag a fox sighting. Have you seen any?
