Herbert Farr and Mary Ellen Barrett


Herbert Farr and Mary Ellen Barrett were married in Cairns, Queensland in 1905. On their marriage certificate, they both listed Mungana, a small mining town near Chillagoe, as their usual place of residence.

Herbert was working as a store assistant in Mungana and his brother worked as a plumber in Chillagoe. I’m uncertain why Mary would be there, she was only 18 and her parents lived in Cairns. Her brother John did work in a number of mining towns in the north of Queensland; perhaps he was there at the time.
