Winifred Mary McFarlane

Nothing much is known of Winifred Mary who was born on 25th October, 1897 in Strathalbyn. Winifred, aged 19 years, married on 18th February, 1916 at the Mitcham Camp to Collis Nugent Carpenter, aged 32 years. According to their marriage certificate Collis was a Military Officer and was living at the Mitcham Camp. Winifred was residing at Glenelg at the time of her marriage.

Collis was named Vere Callis Nugent Carpenter at birth, but it seems that any paperwork later suggested that his name had changed to Collis Nugent Carpenter.

They had three children:

When Jack was born, Collis was listed as a Manager and they were living at 6 Broadway, Glenelg.

But when Robert was born, Collis was a Supervisor for the Repatriation Hospital in Moseley Street, Glenelg.

In 1920 Collis was listed on Betty's birth certificate as a Traveller and living in Shannon Street, Glenelg.
