[11] On the northern side of Hunter Street odd numbers were used at this time. In the first Sands Sydney Directory (1858) the numbers were even: No 3 in 1853 thus became No 4.

[15] Eric Dark, the husband of novelist Eleanor Dark, was Joseph’s youngest son, born of his third marriage. He told of a generous inheritance to his father from the Evans family: ‘Joseph…….had inherited an income of ₤1,000 a year from his second wife, retired from the ministry because of his health and bought a 50-acre farm at Mittagong’ (B. Brooks, Eleanor Dark, A Writer’s Life, 1998 p 46.) This allowed the young Eric who suffered badly from asthma to spend ‘two years roaming around the bush’, resulting in improved health.

[19] Egan was by this time almost entirely bereft of immediate family. His first wife Mary Ann Piper and children Agnes Josephina (1826–62), John Piper (1827–61) and Hugh Piper (1829–48) had passed away and he had suffered the overwhelming tragedy of losing his second wife Marian and two stepchildren Gertrude and Henry in the wreck of the Dunbar. Of eight grandchildren there remained only Daniel Richard Egan, born 1856, son of John, and Ernest Daniel Egan West, born 1855, son of Agnes. In these circumstances few would have reproached him this last relationship
