Emily Jane Walker and Ernest John Masters
3-Emily Jane Walker was born on 16 Jan 1873 in Spring Rises, Exton and died on 15 Jul 1957 in Penguin at age 84.
Emily married Ernest John Masters, son of John Masters and Mary Ann Buckland, on 4 May 1898 in Westbury, Tasmania. Ernest was born on 21 Jan 1875 in Westbury, Tasmania and died on 3 Nov 1961 at age 86.
They had eight children:
- Alma and
Emily Jane, the third child of Thomas and Rebecca, was born at Spring Rises and died at Penguin. In her early teens Emily had pneumatic fever which left her with a slight limp. Emily was the first daughter to marry, on the 4th May, 1898. She married Ernest John Masters in her twenty-sixth year.
Thomas donated the princely sum often pounds towards the cost of Emily's trousseau, and her brother Percy, then fifteen years of age, drove the cart that took Emily and their mother to Deloraine to spend it. No doubt much sewing ensued at "Spring Rises" as both Emily and her mother were good seamstresses.
Jack was a railway employee. After their marriage they lived at Springfield and Dennison Gorge in north-eastern Tasmania for 15 years, the railway was then the only means of transport into the area. Six daughters and one son were born there, and when the children were old enough to go to school, Emily would put them on the morning train for the two mile journey to Lebrina. After school they walked home along the railway track, usually arriving in tears because some of the older boys used to throw stones at them. On Sundays they all walked along the railway line to Sunday School and church at Lebrina. Jack would often go back to the evening service.
In 1913, Jack purchased from Thomas a farm at South Riana which Thomas had bought in 1890 for four pounds and acre. Thomas donated land for a school. Ernie, Jack and Emily's only son, said that he did not know what his father had paid for the farm, as "father did not tell us that sort of thing". When his parents retired in 1945 to live in Penguin, Ernie paid his father 22 pounds 10 shillings an acre for it. Ernie sold the farm in 1975 for 500 dollars an acre and retired to Penguin.
Emily and Jack had seven daughters, Annie, Ethel, Minnie, Maud, Florrie, Alma and Mary. Emily taught Sunday School and sewing at the local school, and loyally supported her husband in his duties as councillor and deputy warden of the Penguin Municipality and as a Methodist lay preacher. It was said that there wasn't a church in the Penguin Municipality in which he hadn't preached. Ernie, their only son, was warden of the Penguin Municipality. A road at South Riana was named after the Masters family in recognition of their service to the community. Emily was a kindly caring person, quietly in the background until needed. She became deaf as she grew older.
Her son Ernie said that she was a wonderful mother, whom he hoped to meet again one day. "She always put her family first, herself last." Emily lovingly cared for by her family during her old age, died at her home in Penguin.
