    • HAIR: Light Brown
      EYES: Blue

      DESCRIPTION: Oval Face, Fair complexion, Stout Build; Scar over left eyebrow & on left thumb

      He was known in the 1859 census, to be working as a Labourer and as a shepherd and grazier with A.S. Clarke, farmer.
      George and Eliza lived at "Cut Hill", York. In 1867 he purchased from George Fisher (Jnr.), his brother-in-law, approximately twenty five acres of land on the outskirts of York for the sum of thirty five pounds. He was now 39 years of age and was to keep this land for the remainder of his life. His occupation was shown as farmer in the 1870's.

      Also found Walter Samuel Trew b. Dorset England 1847, d. 1900 York WA

      George Trew listed in York Census 1859 as Labourer. Was Shepard & grazier with A. S. Clarke, a farmer by 1870's. Employed 10 T/L men on occasions 1864-1881.

      It is now known that his wife Harriet (nee FRIEND) had died in 1853, and his son William orphaned. I am currently investigating the possibility that Harriet's uncle, Henry FRIEND adopted/fostered this little boy, as he and his wife were childless. They have a "son" in the 1861 census listed as William FRIEND, who is 11 years old. I cannot find them ever having any children, therefore, I believe this William is actually William TREW, George & Harriet's son.

      George TREW's second marriage certificate shows George as a Labourer, residing in the York district and a widower. (Harriet TREW, his first wife, had died at Parham on 6.9.1853 - nothing proved yet as to the fate of their son, William)

      In 1867 he purchased from George FISHER (Jnr.), his brother-in-law, approximately twenty five acres of land on the outskirts of York for the sum of thirty five pounds. He was now 39 years of age and was to keep this land for the remainder of his life. His occupation was shown as farmer in the 1870's.

      Eliza died in March, 1904 aged 68 yrs and George followed on 6th January, 1905 aged 78 yrs. The "Eastern Districts Chronicle" reported both events:

      Saturday, April 2, 1904
      Death - A very old resident of this district, Mrs. George Trew, died on Monday night last, at the age of 68 years. The deceased had been ill for some time past, and owing to the serious nature of her ailment the end was not unexpected. The funeral took place on Wednesday morning, and a large number of relatives and friends attended. Many floral tributes were sent by sympathising friends. Deceased leaves a husband and a large family of grown up sons and daughters to mourn their loss. The Ven. Archdeacon Barton-Parkes officiated at the grave.

      Saturday, January 7, 1905
      It is with regret that we record the demise of a very old and respected resident of this district, in the person of Mr. George Trew, which sad event took place at his residence on Friday morning. Although deceased had attained the ripe age of 82 years (*sic), his death was unexpected. He retired on Thursday night apparently in the best of health, and was found dead in his bed on Friday morning, the cause of death being heart failure. The funeral will leave his late residence this afternoon at 4 o'clock for the York cemetery, and will pass through the town at about 4.30

      Saturday, January 14, 1905
      Funeral of Mr. George Trew - The large number of townsfolk who attended the funeral of the late Mr. George Trew on Saturday afternoon last bore ample testimony to the respect in which he was held. The cortege moved from his late residence about four o'clock, and en route many friends and acquaintances joined the procession which slowly wended its way to the Anglican Cemetery at the base of Mt. Brown.

      Both George and Eliza TREW are buried in the York cemetery in graves which are now unmarked and location unknown. Plot numbers were not recorded in the shire cemetery records until 1936. Gail Pascoe is currently trying to discover the general whereabouts of the graves, and have a fairly "good idea" as to the approximate area. In his will, George left four acres of his land to a son Henry Edward, and the balance to another son, Nathaniel Eli.

      His estate was valued at sixty nine pounds, ten shillings, consisting of land valued at eighty pounds, less ten pounds ten shillings owed to a medical practitioner.

      The road past the land he once owned is now named TREWS ROAD and a few of his children continued to live in York for many years. Others chose to live in the areas of Beverley, Sawyers Valley, Geraldton and Roeburne.

      After George's death, his son Nathaniel, purchased the property next door. This block consisted of 12 acres. It is not known as yet whether the original land was sold to pay for it after compensating his brother Edward, or if they then owned the two properties.
