Specifically, I should like to thank Miss Robyn Cook of South Sydney Council Library, Mr. Ken Smith, archivist, Sydney City Council and the staff of the Mitchell Library and of the New south Wales State Archives. Appreciation is also expressed to Mr. Meadows of St. Stephen’s Church, Monsignor Carr of St. Joseph’s Church and Rev. Clancy of the Church Records and Historical Society for allowing me access to the records of their churches. Mr. Gerry Gilroy of the Land Titles Office accorded me every assistance. Appreciation also to Mary McKay who took the better photographs and to Kris Drews who typed the paper. Special thanks to my mother and sister, Kate, who spent literally days assisting with tabulation of data for this thesis. Appreciation is also expressed to Professor K.J. Cable for his advice in the course of the preparation of this work.
