I have noticed that in the six pages on Dick Lee in “A Century of the Best: The Stories of Collingwood’s Favourite Sons” by Michael Roberts, there is a reference to The Sporting Globe but there is no mention of Dick Lee’s “A TYPE OF STAB PUNT”. But then this book was published well before Jim Johnson made his corrections to the Sporting Globe’s Electronic Text referring to "Dick Lee’s A Type Of Stab Punt” In Dick- Dick, Dickeee on this site of the 21st June 1941. Researched by Stab Punt Jim Johnson. DICK LEE sees FLAWS By H. A. de Lacy. Sporti...

Either the author misheard, or someone provided the christian name incorrectly, as she was Margaret Alice Flitcroft, not Mary Alice Flitcroft. At January 2020, this is the first record found of her in Australia (ship passenger lists yet to be thoroughly scoured). The 1886 Sands Directory lists a Francis Flitcraft (sic) at 32 Nithsdale Street, and, as the head of the household was usually the only name listed at each address, it's possible they were living as man and wife (married or common law we don't yet know) as early as 1885, as I underst...

New Zealand family legend was that John Agar Love, with his family, and two friends, Richard Barrett and James Heberley joined as crew members of the Hannah. The story was that Captain Hay had many crew jump ship in New Zealand and needed support to have reliable crew to sail his ship back to Australia.
