    CALCUTTA, Feb. 21.
    Delhi society was completly represented at the wedding of Miss Anne Bromhead, Lady Birdwood's niece, and Captain Keith Dawson, of Melbourne, who is attached to the 13th Frontier Rifles, and Field-Marshal Sir William Birdwood's aide-de-camp. Sir William Birdwood gave the bride away. The Hon Richard Wood, son of the Viceroy (Lord Irwin), acted as page. Military officers formed a guard of honour.
    A reception at Sir William Birdwood's residence was attended by Lady Irwin, the Maharajahs of Kashmir, Bikanir, Bharatpur, Kapurthala, Dholpur, Alwar, and Patiala.
    The Viceroy, in a speech, said that it was only right that an Australia warrior should marry the niece and well-nigh daughter of a general beloved by the Anzacs.
    Presents were received from the Viceroy, Sir William Birdwood and their staffs, regimental officers and Indian princes and noblemen.

  • 31 May 1928, Dawson—Bromhead.
    During their recent visit to Melbourne Captain Dawson and his bride stayed at "Orrong," Clendon road, Toorak, that the former might be near his mother and sister, for whose sake Australia was chosen for the honeymoon.
    The wedding took place in Delhi—St. James's Church being beautifully decorated for the occasion. The bride, Miss Anne Bromhead, daughter of the late Major Edward Bromhead, and granddaughter of Colonel Sir Benjamin Bromhead, of Thurlby Hall, Lincoln, is the niece of Lady Birdwood, and Field Marshal Sir William Birdwood gave her away. Captain Dawson is the son of the late Peter Dawson, of The Riviera, Mentone, and Malvern. During the war he served with the Australian Expeditionary Forces, and now belongs to the 13th Frontier Force Rifles. For the past three years he has been Comptroller of the Household, and personal A.D.C. to His Excellency, the Commander-in-Chief.
    The ceremony was performed by the Bishop of Lahore, assisted by the Rev. P. N. F. Young, Chaplain of Delhi.

  • 1 Apr 1926, INDEFINITE WILL. INTERPRETATION BY COURT. Testator's Nine Daughters.
    An originating summons taken out to decide interesting questions arising from the construction of the will of Frederick William Lambert, of Warragul who died on October 27, 1925, came before Mr Justice Weigall in the Practice Court for determination. The matter was argued on two occasions, and Mr Justice Weigall has now delivered judgement. Testator married three times, and left a family of nine daughters. By will made on December 21, 1923, he left real estate valued at £7,540 and personal property worth £403.
    Testator directed that after payment of his debts and funeral and testamentary ex penses all his personal estate should go to his wife and children, each of his daughters to receive a legacy of £100 upon her attaining the age of 16 years. The balance of the estate was to be the property of his wife, Mrs Ruby Malvina Lambert, who was to place a tombstone on his grave. Testator also directed that Una Lambert (the only child of his second marriage) was to be looked after by his wife, who was also to provide "a home for all of my family who wish to live with my wife." The originating summons was taken out by the National Trustees Company against the widow, who now lives in Meredith street, East Malvern, and the children. The three main questions to be determined were (1) whether the real estate was covered by the will, (2) who was to take the real estate, and (3) whether the widow was under any obligation to provide for Una Lambert and to find a home for any of the children.
    It was argued for the children that the will disposed only of the personal estate, and that the words "balance of estate and belongings" referred to the personal estate. It was further contended that the real estate was not given at all, and that there was an intestacy regarding the real estate, in which event two-thirds of the real estate would go to the children and one-third to the widow. Affidavits before the Court showed that at the time testator made his will he had more than sufficient personal estate to pay in full the legacies bequeathed.
    Mr Justice Weigall reached the conclusion that the first part of the will should be read as if testator had given nine legacies of £100 out of his personal estate only, and that the words "balance of the estate and belongings" covered the real estate and the balance, if any, of the personal estate, after paying the nine legacies of £100 each to the children. In reality there was no balance of the personal estate. The result was that the real estate went to the widow. Mr Justice Weigall further held the words "Una Lambert to be looked after," which related to the provision of a home for the family, were too vague and indefinite to create a trust, and that therefore the widow took the real estate absolutely.
    Another interesting point arose in connection with the age of the children at which they were to draw the proportion of the legacy left to them. This question was whether the children could receive the leagacy before attaining the age of 21 years and give a receipt for it. Mr Justice Weigall held that, on the language of the will, the trustees werre justified in paying the legacies when the children attained the age of 16 years, and to take a receipt from each child on her attaining that age.
    The real estate of testator consisted of the land and premises known as the Orient Hotel, Warragul, which are under lease to Minna Matilda Goold until March 5, 1929. At the time of making the will testator also owned the Pine Grove Hotel, Upper Beaconsfield.
    Mr Gregory (instructed by Messrs Hedderwick, Fookes and Alston) appeared for the trustee company; Mr A H Davis (instructed by Messrs Madden, Drake and Candy, agent for Mr M Divine, of Warragul) for the widow); and Mr Burgess (instructed by Mr Vincent Nolan) for the children.11

  • 14 Apr 1948, Popular Licensee Leaving Upper Beaconsfield
    DISTRICT friends are very sorry to hear that the Donaldson family will soon be leaving Beaconsfield Upper, where Mr. Donaldson has been the licencee of the Pine Grove Hotel for many years. They gathered at the hotel on Saturday afternoon, April 3rd, to present the Donaldsons with a lovely cocktail set.
    Not only has Mr. Donaldson been a very good publican, running the hotel in a very orderly way, but he proved himself to be a worthy citizen also. The district is going to miss the friendly co-operation and help it always received from this family.8
