FF6 Family of John and Phoebe Jillett

Taking a Stroll 1923

With some of John Jillett and Phoebe Triffitt's Descendants

Robert Alfred Jillett and Sophia Susan Whiteway

Robert was the eldest son of John and Phoebe, and was born in 1841.  He died in Beaconsfield in 1921.
Robert Alfred Jillett was a councillor with the Oatlands Council.  That was a tradition within the Jillett family.  Later he was the owner of the Ross Hotel in Ross, and like a lot of others, he was declared bankrupt in 1876

Robert Victor Jillett

Robert Victor Jillett was a political identity in Beaconsfield, as the following story from the Beaconsfield Historical Society reveals.

The year 1908 had two claims to fame.  The Tasmania Co. made a profit - the last it was ever to make. And the growing civic consciousness of the area was recognised in a Municipal Council to replace the Town Board. 

The municipality drew its whole West Tamar area from part of George Town and part of Westbury, with its northern boundary at Bass Strait, its southern at the outskirts of Launceston's elite suburb Trevallyn, its eastern at the Tamar, and its western at the crest of the Dazzler Range and its extensions north and south.  First Council clerk was an appropriate choice - the former manager of the Bank of Tasmania in Beaconsfield.  The First Warden also was appropriate - H.W. Walduck and of course, Adye Douglas had a seat too.

The new Council was not slow to recognise its responsibilities to primary producers and its cautious relationship with other tiers of government.  At its' first meeting it agreed to appoint a fruit inspector (predictably this was moved by Cr J.A. Jensen), and decided to notify the State Government that it would co-operate in solving the Beauty Point landslip problem, but would accept no responsibility in this matter.  Predictably again Cr Jensen was not the mover of the second motion, since it was just below his original 1905 apple orchard that the worst movement was apparent, and still was in the 1970's.  The Beaconsfield Council is nothing if not consistent, seventy years later, with a couple of dozen houses destroyed and the town of Beauty Point crippled, it was standing by exactly the same policy.

The Council was not at all overawed buy its responsibilities.  At the second meeting on February 3, 1908 the meeting was adjourned for lunch at 1pm, to resume at 3 pm.   At that hour, only the Council Clerk was present so he adjourned on his own authority until 3.30pm.  It was 3.40 before a quorum could be mustered.  Then 20 minutes later, a three minute recess was ordered - presumably to visit the toilet!  It appears the councillors had a pleasant lunch.

Within weeks there was a scandal - Cr R.V. Jillett's position as a member was declared illegal, and he was debarred.  The reason is lost in the mists of history.  But the Council was not to be fussed about this - it declared the seat vacant, then appointed Mr R.V. Jillett to fill the vacancy!  Legality and Dick Jillett's interests had been served.  He reacted by successfully moving at the next meeting that the Warden's allowance be increased from £100 to £150 per year, and later capped it by becoming Warden himself!

Beach - Jillett.

A wedding was celebrated at Beaconsfield last Tuesday, in Holy Trinity Church, by the Rev. O. C. Macmichael, when Miss Blanche Jillett was married to Mr. Walter Beach.

As the bride entered the church on the arm of her father, by, whom she was given away, the choir sang "The Voice That Breathed O'er Eden." The bride was attired  in a gown of ivory silk, the bodice being trimmed with silk applique, showing a collarless yoke of tucked chiffon. The skirt was draped, showing frills of silk lace, finished with chiffon roses, and long square train. She also wore a handsome tulle veil, and wreath of orange blossom and carried a shower bouquet of white sweet peas, roses, and asparagus fern, and knelt on a white satin cushion, prettily worked, the cushion and veil being the work and gift of her sister, Miss Lucie Jillett.

The bride was attended by Miss Lucie Jillett as bridesmaid, who wore a dress of white silk and tulle hat, with tulle butterfly. She also carried a bouquet of pale pink pelargoniums. The bridegroom was supported by Mr. J. Knight, of Hobart, as best man.

As the bride left the church the Wedding March was played by Miss E. Menadue. 

Later the newly wedded couple left for Launceston, en route for Hobart, the bride travelling in a navy costume, with hat to match.

Walter Race Jillett married Hilda Eales. 

Hilda was the daughter of John Eales and Elizabeth Ann Wright.  Her father served in the Railways.

LIONEL WALSH'S COMPANY. The much-read and talked-about musical comedy "Sally"' will be staged here at the National Theatre on Monday by the Lionel Walsh Comic Opera Co., who have made a great name in Tasmania. "Sally" has broken all records in Hobart, and should do the same here. The principal lady is Marjorie Le Strange in. the title role. Young. vivacious, and pretty, she makes an ideal Sally. The whole action of the play centres round this delightful actress.

The piece 's proving the biggest success Mr. Walsh has had. Sydney Hollister as Otis Hooper, the theatrical agent, causes much fun. He will be remembered in Launceston with Hugh Huxham's  Serenaders, and is very happily engaged now by Mr. Walsh as his principal comedian. Mr. Lionel Walsh of course carries a great deal of the show, playing the down-and-out duke. Another of Mr. Walsh's finds is Mona Barlee, a little lady with a great deal of personality. She plays as Rosie. Arthur Clarke, in love with Sally, is ideal in the part of Blair Farquhar. His duets with Sally, '"Look for the Silver Lining" and "Whip-poor-Will" are particularly effective. Other numbers in the musical comedy are "The Little Church Round the Cornet," "On With the Dance,"' and "On the Banks of the Snitzer Coninski?' Other members of the east are-Miss May -Geary, Welton Power, Harry Young, Fred Russell, and Philip Shaw. "Sally" will run for three nights and Saturday's matinee. "Maid of the Mountains" will be given on Thursday and Friday, and "The O'Brien Girl" on Saturday night, when Mist. June Addell will appear.

Their children were Phyllis Florence Jillett and Cecil Artharnard Jillett

Col Cecil Artharnard Jillett
He served in World War II, and was an engineer.  He had a very distinguished service.
He attended the prestigious Hutchins School in Hobart.
The Greek Campaign.
Over 26,000 weary Allied troops landed on Crete in the last week of April 1941. They remained on the island for less than a month. In a brief, savage campaign, the Australians inflicted heavy losses on the German paratroopers. One German battalion lost more than two-thirds of its men. Another rearguard action by the 2/7th Battalion, AIF, and the New Zealand Maori battalion left 280 German dead and allowed the retreating forces to reach the evacuation point in Suda Bay. HMAS Perth was hit while carrying members of the AIF back to Egypt. The British admiral in charge of evacuation called it "a disastrous period in our naval history".
Although 15,000 men were evacuated by ships of the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian Navy, some 12,000 Allied troops, including 3,000 Australians, were left on Crete and most became prisoners of war of the Germans. As in Greece, some made daring escapes. Many were sheltered by the people of Crete. The war cemetery at Suda contains the graves of 139 men of the AIF and the RAAF.

    Eliza Rebecca Jillett daughter of John Jillett married William Tanner in 1881, they are buried at St. James' Church and Cemetery Ranelagh.          Huon Times (Franklin, Tas. : 1910 - 1933), Wednesday 31 March 1915, p 5


    Mr William Robert Tanner, an esteemed and respected townsman, died at his residence, Ranelagh, on March 28th. He was born at Campbelltown in 1863, where he resided during his boyhood days, after which he, with his parents, removed to Oatlands until about 2 years ago, when Mr Tanner finally decided to settle in Ranelagh. The deceased's devotion to duty may be gauged by the fact that 24 years of uninterrupted Government service stands to his credit, and it was through contact with the trials and hardships incidental to a settler's - life that gave rise to the complaint that subsequently led to his death.

    Some ten years has elapsed since Mr Tanner became a victim to that dreaded malady Brights disease, and throughout the course of that period bore patiently and un-complainingly the sufferings accompanying intervening attacks. By the exercise of foresight in the days ol health and strength, Mr Tanner made provision for the advent of affliction by becoming a member of the Dulverton Lodge I.O.O.F.A. some 40 years have passed since the day of his initiation.

    During his earlier career as an Oddfellow he graduated step by step until he had the honour of having passed through the whole, of the chairs of his lodge. The funeral took place at noon yesterday, and was conducted by C, Perry in conjunction with, the well-known firm of Alex Clark and Sons, of Hobart.

    The casket was borne to its last resting place by four prominent Huon lodgemen— Bros W. Thomas, J. White, J. Upchurch, of the Loyal Franklin I.O.O.F. branch, and Bro. Wallace Fyfe of the Huonville Druids. The interment took place at St James' Anglican Cemetery, and the funeral service was ably conducted by the rector, Rev. F. Bethune. The deceased gentleman leaves a wife and family of six sons and four, daughters to mourn their loss, and for whom the district expresses its sympathy. Mrs Tanner desires to express the appreciation of herself arid family for the many tokens of sympathy received from her wide circle of friends.

    William Tanner was the son of William Tanner and his wife Catherine Windover.
    Catherine had been tried in England, in 1840 aged 16 and then was brought to trial a second time.  This time using an alias.

    Charles Louis Jillett married Rita Sealy

    They lived at New Norfolk.  This shop was next door to the private residence of C.L. Jillet with a laneway between. Corner of building later occupied by Stella Potter, now Chinese Restaurant. The number would be about 50 High St from memory.

    Rita Sealy was the daughter of William Henry Sealy and his wife Anne Maria Allen.  They married in 1894 and Rita was born in 1896.  Prior to her marriage she had been married to his brother George Broughton Sealy.

    From that marriage were 3 children

    Usually known as Broughton, A B Sealy was a shopkeeper & amateur photographer who was related to most early Bothwell families. His mother was Annie Allen & his father George Broughton Sealy. A B Sealy spent part of his early adult life in Victoria but returned to Bothwell to help manage the family store, on the corner of Alexander & Dalrymple Streets. For some time he lived in the house attached to the shop & part in the house next to it. This house, a late Victorian building, was once called Broughtonville but is now called Cashion Cottage. William Sealy also owned the Apsley Hotel & a shop there & some of the scenes are of that area. It is not known where Sealy learnt about photography

    Whites Corner is a charming group of heritage buildings next to the beautiful town square in Bothwell, the gateway to the Central Highlands of Tasmania.  The complex comprises of seven historic buildings, the first of which was built by John White in 1837 as the town's general store.  This building has now been tastefully restored and fitted as a two bedroom cottage, blending heritage charm with modern convenience.  As John White prospered, in 1850 he built a larger shop and a grand storekeeper's residence for himself and his family, which has also now been restored and fitted as a comfortable four-bedroom house  in which guests can spread out and enjoy.  

    The remainder of the buildings, a bakery, butchery, tannery, stables, dairy and woolstore are set in beautifully landscaped gardens and guests are encouraged to explore.  Bothwell is  a charming village established by Scottish settlers in the 1820s.  There is a distinct Scottosh theme to the town, with a premier whisky distillery, the oldest golf course in Australia and the Australasian golf museum amongst the key attractions of the region.  Situated on the Highland Lakes Road, 15 minutes off the Midlands Highway, less than an hour from Hobart, 45 minutes from the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and on the doorstep of premier trout fishing lakes, this is the ideal destination to relax and enjoy rural Tasmania at its finest. 


    The Nicholas family were the earliest settlers and their graves are directly behind St. Luke’s Church.  The Reid family of Ratho, who established golf in Australia, also have an imposing monument.  William North and Robert Blake were transported for machine-breaking in 1831 but both prospered here.  They married daughters of Edward Bowden.  The North family has erected one of the more imposing headstones.
    The most famous person with a plaque in the Bothwell cemetery is Dr Grote Reber, the “father of radio astronomy” who lived in Bothwell for many years.

    Richard Bowden from Bothwell has been honoured today with an OAM for service to local government and to the community of the Central Highlands through a range of primary industry and conservation groups. Richard Bowden has been a councillor since 1976 and the deputy mayor since 1993, a former member of the State Fire Advisory Council, Chairman of the Clyde Water Trust, and a member of Tasmania's delegation to the first national workshop on Integrated Catchment Management.
