KITTO families of NSW



This tree is provided to family historians without prejudice. I have constructed most of my family trees using the data I have available, and in a few cases it is estimated as the best fit from available choices.  In this tree, most of the links have been proved through BMD certificate references, but there may be still some errors, so any help that you can give to confirm any line would be much appreciated by me and others searching in this family. More modern families also need your inputs, because as I can link modern families to each other, and thus it enables a focus on their common ancestry. The memories of one branch may not be complete, but yet may fill in gaps of another branch. Only by a concerted effort can we really define the true lineage. Help me to help you by sharing what you have.

a.. DIPTHERIA : This prevailing epidemic is making sad havoc amongst the juveniles of our little community. In our obituary it will be seen that Wagga Wagga has not escaped, as the loss in the family of the Rev. Mr. Fox will mournfully testify. In our neighbour-hood, Lacmalac has had its full share, for in one family, that of Mr. Walter Kitto, three have already been laid in their graves, and the fourth and only remaining child is now prostrate. In town several children are suffering from throat infections, and our medical men have to be constantly on the move. On Tuesday last, Mr. Keeran Claffey interned one of his children, who had fallen a victim to this dread malady. It is an undoubted fact that in every case in Tumut where medical aid has been sought at the first symptoms of throat affection, no results have been fatal; but delays have proved dangerous in more that one instance lately. When once the malady attains a certain stage, it is not only difficult but very dangerous to combat with.

  b.. Jane Kitto, 5 years, died 4 February 1866.

  c.. Elizabeth Kitto, 8 years, died 17 February 1866.

  d.. Soloman Kitto, 2 years, survived.

a.. FATAL ACCIDENT : On Saturday morning last about 8 o'clock one of the most painful fatal accidents that had occurred in this colony took place at Lacmalac, which swept two young children belonging to Mr. & Mrs. Walter Kitto instantaneously into enternity. When the particulars of this painful catastrophe became generally known a feeling of deep sorrow for the bereaved parents ran through the community, and was manifested in every person who heard the sad story. It appears that the two children, aged respectively 6 years and 15 months, met their deaths in the following painful way:- Mr. Kitto and Mr. Day were engaged in threshing wheat with what is known as a "log machine", a large fluted wooden roller about two feet in diameter at the large end and about one foot at the other; the small end is fastened to a swivel which runs round a perpendicular shaft sunk in the ground in the middle of a circular threshing floor, and at the other is attached a pair of horses, the wheat is then spread over the floor and the horses walk round the circle and pull the roller after them to crush the grain out of the straw. This huge implement passed over the bodies of the unfortunate children and crushed them to death. Mr. Day was engaged in threshing the wheat, and the younger child was with his father in a shed continuous to the machine. The elder child asked Mr. Day to allow him to drive the horses round the floor and he gave him the whip and then walked into the shed where Mr. Kitto was engaged in observing a flock of cockatoos which were settling down in his corn paddock. Mr. Day heard the elder child call out "Whoa" to the horses, and saw him running into the centre of the ring in front of the roller. He instantly called upon him to retire, and shouted to the horses to stop, but the poor child took no notice, ran into the jaws of death, and was killed instantaneously. It appears, however, that the younger child went out  of the shed onto the threshing floor; the elder one saw the danger and called upon the horses to stop, at the same time making an effort to rescue him, and although called to retire, he was so intent on saving his brother, that he did not see his own danger, and while endeavouring to pull his brother away the log passed over both their bodies killing them on the spot.

The accident was heart-rending to see as the bodies of the poor children were completely flattened and their brains scattered over the threshing floor.

The grief of the father and mother was agonising to behold. The horses were exceedingly quiet. An inquest was held on the bodies, and a verdict of accidental death returned. On Sunday last, the bodies of the poor children were conveyed to their last resting place in the Tumut Cemetery, followed by a very large number of mournful friends. This accident has cast a gloom over the whole of the community.

  a.. Walter Kitto, 16 months, died 1 March 1873.

  b.. John Kitto, 6 years, died 1 March 1873.

a.. A DISTRESSING ACCIDENT occurred at Shaking Bog on Tuesday morning, which has cast a gloom over a large circle in the community. Mr Walter Kitto while working near his homestead, met with a sudden and violent death. When the news of this melancholy event reached town it was supposed that Mr. Kitto was struck by a tree, which he was felling, suddenly kicking, that is leaping back over the stump towards the spot where the axeman stood, but this version, it seems is incorrect. The following particulars were gleaned from a relative of the deceased who was one of the first upon the ground after the disaster took place. Mr. Kitto, it appears, intended to make an extension to his shed, and for the purpose he had felled several trees in a thick belt of timber close by. He told his son, a youth of about 17 years, to get the horses up, and when he cooed to come with them to draw in the logs, young Kitto says he heard a tree fall, but as the promised signal did not follow, he went to see and found his father lying dead with his skull beaten in, and the face covered with blood. The green tree which the deceased had cut down was only a few inches in diameter, but in falling its top had rested upon a very tall dead stump, in fact, a barrel of a tree which had lost its top. There was a lever near at hand which had evidently been used to clear the green tree, and, in doing so, the dead barrel broke off at the root, and in its fall struck the deceased upon the head, driving him several feet from where it rested upon the earth. Beneath the dead trunk of the tree lay the axe and hat of the deceased. Much sympathy is felt for Mrs. Kitto and the family in her sad bereavement. Some years back the afflicted woman sadly lost three of her children to dire disease, then two others were removed by a terrible accident, and now the husband and father has been stricken down. An inquest is to be held tomorrow, and the body in the meantime will be brought to Tumut.

  a.. Walter Kitto, 46 years, died 4 October 1881.

a.. DEATH : On Thursday, Death snatched away from earth and all she held most dear, another of the pioneers of Tumut in the person of Mrs James Petts, wife of Mr James Petts (late of Adjungbilly, but now of Tumut). Deceased was a kind, hospitable women, and a great favourite with all who knew her. She attended the late Mrs Stephen French during her fatal sickness, and Mrs Petts was unremitting in her attention to the wants of the patient. Doubtless in her enthusiastic acts of self-denial she did not take sufficient care of herself, and so caught the same affection, that dire complaint, pneumonia. Though carefully attended to by Dr Mason, and given all that loving hands could do, she passed away to the "great majority" at the ripe old age of 66 years. Mrs Petts leaves behind her a sorrowing husband, one sister (Mrs James Carr), two brothers (Messrs. John Hayden and Robert Hayden) and two sons by a former husband, to mourn the loss of a devoted wife, sister and mother. The funeral took place on Friday last, and was numerously attended. Mr H.W. Hoad acted as undertaker and Rev. T.E. Owens-Mell officiated at the grave. We tender the bereaved ones our deepest sympathy.

  a.. Hannah Petts, formerly Kitto, (nee Hayden), 66 years, died 11 June 1903.

.... Tumut Advocate, June 1903


a.. FIRE AT GRAHAMSTOWN : On Sunday last, at midday, the house and all contents of Mr Kitto were burned at Grahamstown. It is surmised that the fire started through a box of matches being left on the window ledge, and the window falling down ignited the matches. The fire ran over the paper lining of the house in a flash, and very little time was left to save anything. The sum of £7.0.0 in notes and a valuable piano was burned besides clothing, the house and contents. There was no insurance on anything. Great regret is felt for Mr. Kitto.

a.. Noticed the following obituary in the Tumut and Adelong Times, dated 16 July 1968 (Tuesday)


OBITUARY. MRS CAROLINE AMELIA KITTO. As briefly mentioned in our last Friday's issue, the death took place last Wednesday (10 Jul 1968) at the Altona Convalescent Home, Waverley, of a former Tumut resident and a native of the town, in the person of Mrs Caroline Amelia Kitto, widow of the late Mr Solomon Kitto, at the great age of 98 years. Despite her advanced years, Mrs Kitto had enjoyed good health until two months before her death. For the past ten years she had resided with her daughter Eileen (Mrs Hinchcliffe) at Bondi. Deceased was the eldest of a large family born to the late Robert and Sophia McAlister of Tumut. On reaching woman's estate she married Mr Soloman Kitto and they lived at Tumut all their married life. Mr Kitto predeceased his wife by 21 years. The late Mrs Kitto was a staunch adherent of the Church of England. There is one son, Bert (Tumut), and two daughters, Elieen (Mrs Hinchcliff) and Miss Wilma Kitto (Tumut) surviving. There are seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. The sole surviving sister, and the youngest member of the McAlister family, is Alice (Mrs Norman Beegling of Tumut). The funeral took place at Tumut last Thursday leaving from the All Saints Church after a service conducted by the Rev S Willey for the Church of England portion of the Tumut cemetery. Funeral arrangements were in the hands of R G Beavan and Co and the pall-bearers were Messrs John Kitto, Jim Flannery, Bill Dowell and Jerry Raison.

Mr. P. Robinson, divisional returning officer for the Barrier electorate; notifies, that in pursuance of the requirements of the Commonwealth Electoral Act and Regulations, a notification of objection was issued and posted by him on October 5 to each person under- mentioned. Mr. Robinson proposes to determine each of the objections at the expiration of 20 days, and to direct the removal from the roll for the Barrier division of the name of each person thus notified unless in the meantime he is satisfied that the objection is not good. The grounds of objection are that the   persons named do not live in the division, and have not lived in it     for at least one month. The names  are :-


Kitto, George Edwin, 55 Argent-street.

Kitto, Jessie Munrow, 55 Argent-street.

a. Found Dead. At about 6 o’clock last night, an old man named William Kitto (76) was found on the footpath in Hebbard St, South Broken Hill, lying apparently dead. Dr J.F.Bartley was summoned and pronounced life extinct. There was a slight mark on the deceased forehead, caused apparently by a fall. he was seen between 4 and 6 o’clock in an inebriated condition carrying a billycan full of beer. Deceased resided with his wife in Piper Street. For some time past he had been suffering from asthma and was attended by Dr Horne.    Barrier Miner, Broken Hill, NSW. Saturday 6 Jul 1907


b. I wish to tender my sincere thanks to the many friends and neighbours for their kindness and sympathy during my late sad bereavement; also for letters, telegrams and floral tributes.

Mrs E Kitto, Piper Street, South Broken Hill.       Barrier Miner, Broken Hill, NSW. Wednesday 24 Jul 1907


c. The late William Kitto, whose death occurred suddenly at Broken Hill South last week, was one of the Barrier’s earliest pioneers. He it was who discovered the Bobbie Burns Mine and the Apollyon valley District, and caused a commotion in Australian mining circles by the production of a sample of the first horn silver found on the then little-known Barrier field. That specimen assayed something like 15,000oz silver per ton, and was the means of bringing the late W.R. Wilson and other mining men from Melbourne. At that time Silverton was known as Umberumberka. Mr Kitto had been in the Barrier district dam-sinking for nearly 18 years prior to that. His daughter’s wedding was the first ceremony of this kind to be celebrated in the new field.      Barrier Miner, Broken Hill, NSW. Saturday 13 Jul 1907
