Notes for: Augustus William Taylor
1911 - Due to his poor health Augustus emigrated to Australia, followed by his wife and 3 children in 1914. A Character Reference provided by a former employer, Mr. A.J Barrell, Manager of the Eyre Arms Hotel and Wellington Hall at 1 Finchley Road, St. Johns Wood N.W. London dated 18 March 1914 certifies that “Charles” Taylor was under his employ for six and half years and that he left to go abroad for health reasons.
Three children were born prior to the family emigrating to Australia, William Lawrence, Reginald Augustus and Charles Arthur. Two others, John Orlando and Beatrice Dorothy Mavis were born after arriving in Australia.
1914 - A Character Reference provided by the Manager Mr. A.J. Barrell, of "The Eyre Arms Hotel, & Wellington Hall" at 1 Finchley Road, St. Johns Wood N.W. London, dated March 18 1914 states that Augustus was in his employ for six and a half years and that he left to go abroad for health reasons. His wife Leah must have obtained this reference for him as he was already in Australia by this time.
