Edith Elizabeth Mary Tait

Mary and William’s eldest child, Edith was born on October 5th 1914. She went on to marry Irvine James Finucane at Wellington, NSW in 1946. According to her obituary, Edith had been unwell for some time leading up to her marriage and she passed away the same year, shortly after giving birth to a baby son named Peter. She was aged just 29, and was survived by her four siblings and her mother also. She passed away at her mother’s home in Arthur Street Wellington, NSW, having stayed with her since being discharged from hospital. She was buried on the same day in the Methodist section of the Wellington Cemetery.

Peter was raised in Sydney with the Tait’s and later after Jean  married ? Gunning at Concord we believe that Peter went with them to live in Port Macquarie, NSW.

    I was so pleased to hear that Edi’s son Peter had been contacted. His late uncle Robert William Tait was a close family friend and a much loved friend.
    I still have a small parcel of Roberts personal possessions inc his war medals, photos etc that I would like to return to the family. I can post them to Ian Hoschke, if that suited and he can return them to Peter.
