Hi Rob, The photo is Edith Timm taken in 1904 when she was 26 years. Hedley Vickers Hunt is my Grandfather. Edith was married to Henry Milward before she married my Grandfather. William Peaty Burtenshaw Hunt was named after Dr Peaty and Matron Burtenshaw who cared for Edith and William before Edith's untimely death. Your wife may be surprised to know that her grandmother, Elsie Mary Lilley(Nee Timm) was given William to raise from the time that he left hospital, and he never joined the family again. My father would see him every time he visited Brisbane; I do not know if other members of the family kept in touch with him. The photo is a copy of one loaned to us be William's family in the 1990s. I must admit that I was delighted to find your entry on the internet as I had given up any thought taking on the task of tracing Hermann's background, so thanks for the information. Looking forward to hearing from you again. Bill and Beau.


Hedley married Edith Timm, daughter of Hermann Timm and Caroline Busen, 29th Feb 1904 in St Andrews Manse, Rockhampton.1 (Edith Timm was born Cal 1878 in Germany 3 4 and died on 14 Apr 1917 in Gladstone Hospital, Queensland 5.)
