Hi name, His values, His story - Page 6

RAY WAS BORN IN HOBART IN 1878 He was the eldest son of a family of three boys and a girl. Ray was the son of Joseph White. Joseph’s ancestor, Corporal Daniel Stanfield was onboard HMS “Sirius” flagship of the first fleet to arrive in Sydney Cove in 1788 to commence the colony in Australia. Eventually his descendant, Joseph White began his own family in Hobart. Ray was his eldest son. When this family photo was taken in 1896 there was little anticipation for the journey Ray and his family were about to take. 2 Top right: HMS Sirius Middle right: Hobart circa 1890 Bottom Right: Ray as a child
