Campbell Sevils Bible

Campbell Sevil has an interesting bible in his possession. It was given to him by his father, Nelson Sevil.

It says,

This Bible is presented by the Wardens

of

St Stephens Church

Warrah Creek

to

Miss Marion Winnett

on the occasion of her marriage with

Mr Nelson Sevil

 

In accordance with the custom of

presenting a copy of the Holy Bible

to the first bride married in a church

 

 

 

And then signed by the church wardens and vicar, on 16th August, 1916.

 

Nelson Sevil drew block 63 in the 1912 subdivision. It was originally called "Burnslea", and is now called "Sandstone".

 

 

Campbell Sevil also showed me a pillow, made from ribbons won at horse sports.

 

He also had a photo of the Willow Tree pub, that is earlier than most I've seen, showing some large pepper trees out the front.
