It was with much sadness that we learned that "Nixon" passed away on October 26. One of the truly great legends of the Upper Beaconsfield Cricket Club, this left arm wrist spinner used to bamboozle many a batsman during the 1930's. He was a real gentleman too and was honoured for his work at the Shrine of Remembrance.5

  • 5 May 1947, Quiet ceremony
    ALTHOUGH she has many friends, including girls who served with her in the AANS, Helen Wilson had a very quiet wedding when she was married on Friday last to Nixon Holmes at St Andrew's, Brighton, Archdeacon H. B. Hewett officiating.
    Helen is the daughter of Dr Norman Wilson, of the Duntroon, which was opportunely in port that day, so he was able to give his daughter away; and following the quiet ceremony buffet luncheon was served at 23 Cummins rd, Moorabbin, where Helen and Nixon will live in the future. Helen was with 2/7th AGH in the Middle East and New Guinea, and Nixon, who was also in the AIF, also saw service in these areas. Neither bride nor bridegroom had any attendants at the wedding, but Nixon's mother, Mrs H. Holmes, and other members of his family came down from Upper Beaconsfield, and Helen's two sisters, Mrs Roy Spiers, (accompanied by her husband) and Mrs D. Reid, came from their homes at Nareen and Coleraine, and Mr Y. Wilson (her brother) and his wife made the journey from Red Hill. Helen dispensed with bridal attire, wore soft blue crepe with a matching halo hat trimmed with a touch of cherry red.7

  • 28 Feb 1917, The half-yearly meeting of the Red Cross and War Relief Society at Beaconsfield Upper was held in the Assembly Hall last Thursday. The President (Mrs Marsh) occupied the chair and there was a good attendance. Mrs Harvey-Smith, the secretary, furnished a report of the work done during the year, which was most satisfactory. The Society has been in existence about 18 months, and during that period have prepared and sent away about 2000 articles, of various descriptions. Every month a box is sent to the Lady Mayoress's Patriotic League for the boys in the trenches. Two boxes were sent last month. In addition to the goods sent to Melbourne, the branch has made a gift of some article for every recruit who has left the district, The treasurer (Mrs Harvey-Smith) reported that after meeting all expenses the branch had a substantial credit balance at their banker's on which to commence their next half year. A vote of thanks was passed to Mrs Crowther who generously provided afternoon tea at all meetings. For this the branch charges each member 3d, and by this means they have raised the substantial sum of £14. A vote of thanks was also passed to Mrs Shorthouse for her free carriage of parcels and goods to and from the railway station.21

  • 20 Jan 1915, BERWICK POLICE COURT. At the local police court this morning, before Messrs W. J. Harvey Smith (chairman), G. L. Wilson, T. McLennann and Sir Edward Carlisle, Js P., a young man named Sidney Adams was charged with stealing a cash box containing the sum of £18, the property of the Misses Corder, of "Salisbury House," Beaconsfield Upper. Inspector Costello prosecuted, the accused being undefended. Inspector Costello outlined the facts of which he intended to give evidence, Jane Corder stated that she was one of the proprietresses of "Salisbury House," Beaconsfield Upper. She knew the accused. He came to their place on the 24th of December and was employed as houseman and waiter. On the 30th December at 10 p.m. she put the cashbox produced in a cupboard in their private sitting room. After locking the cupboard she put the key in a desk. The cashbox contained about £18, including a cheque for £2 2s. She missed the cashbox on the morning of the 31st. No person but herself or her sister had a right to remove the cashbox. Her brother-in-law reported the matter to the police. Accused left on the 7th instant. Walter Aitken stated that he found the cashbox produced in a private lane close to his house, on the 1st instant. This lane is about three or four chains from "Salisbury House." He handed the box to Constable Hehir. Constable Hehir stated that the robbery was reported to him on the 31st December. He made certain enquiries in connection with it. The cashbox was handed to him on the 1st January. It contained nothing when he got it. It was not locked. It was later on identified by the witness Jane Corder. Detective Brett stated - At about 2 o'clock on Friday, the 8th of this month I saw accused in Little Bourke Street. I said to him. "Your name is Sidney Adams." He replied, "Yes." I said " My name is Brett; I am a detective." Accused was carrying a small parcel. I asked him what he had in the parcel and he said he did not know. I said "Let me see it," and took the parcel from him. I told him there had been a robbery at Upper Beaconsfield and I asked him to come to the Detective Office while I made some enquiries. At the office I opened the parcel in his presence and in the presence of Constable Hehir. It contained 10 sovereigns, a half sovereign, three £1 notes and a cheque for £2 2s. I told accused that this was the proceeds of a robbery at Upper Beaconsfield, and he said "Yes; I took it. I will tell you all about it." He then made the statement produced and it was reduced to writing. He said he had thrown the cashbox in the scrub. This was the case for the prosecution. In answer to the query as to whether he wished the court to deal with the case or that it should go before a jury, accused asked that the court should deal with it. He pleaded guilty to the charge and asked for leniency. He said he had had to make his own way through the world since he was 14 years of age - he was now 24 - and it was the first time he had been in trouble. He had good credentials from several employers. The Bench sentenced him to 4 months imprisonment with hard labor. An order was made for return to the Misses Corder of the money recovered.43
