     Catherine Hanley married Maurice Colbert on 11 March 1808 in Youghal, Cork.

Annie Hanlon

(8 February 1842 - 28 November 1921)
     Annie Hanlon was born on 8 February 1842 in Kilkenny, Ireland. Annie came to Australia as an assisted immigrant on the ‘General Caulfield’, landing in Moreton Bay 8th September 1864.
     Annie Hanlon married James William Phillips, son of William Thomas Phillips and Mary Anne Lyons, on 25 November 1867 in Donnybrook, Maranoa, Queensland. They married on 25th November 1867 according to later birth certificates.
James and Annie appear to have had 13 children, although there is some confusion about the first three.
Mabel Alice ( IGI) is said to have been born at ‘Dykehead Station’ in Dec 1869 /70 although there does not appear to be birth registration this. There is a ‘Dykehead Station’ listed west of Maryborough, near Mundubberra. She married James William Thygesen 6th June 1887 at ‘Bona Vista’ Walla and died 21 Jan 1943.
Mary Ann is registered as born at ‘Jindah’ 25 Dec 1870, there does not appear to be any further information re Mary Ann. This appears to be in the same area as ‘Dykehead Station’, is it possible that Mary Ann and Mabel Alice are one and the same?
This appears to be in the same area as ‘Dykehead Station’, is it possible that Mary Ann and Mabel Alice are one and the same?
May Lydia Phillips does not appear to have birth registration either, but is said to have been born 27 November 1871 in Maryborough. At the time of her marriage to John Charles Wood she was said to be ‘the second daughter of J W Phillips Esq’.
Other children of James William and Annie were:
William James b 29 Nov 1872 d 25 November 1875
Effie Isabel b30 October 1874 d 20 February 1876
Alfred James b 8 September 1876 m Charlotte Bridget Simcock 29 April 1908
Un-named female b15 May 1878. This is probably Catherine Isabella (Kitty) who married Daniel Joseph O’Regan 24 May 1905.
Bridget Maude (Maude) b 4 May 1880 m 1 John Henry Hendy 27 September 1905
2 Alexander O’Connel 1950, d October 1961
Virgil Lyons b 1 May 1882 m Christina Irwin 30 April 1913
William Percival b 19 May 1884 d 8 Feb 1885
Edward John b 11 February 1886 d 8 Jul 1886
Annie b 4 March 1887 m Charles James McWalters 15 February 1911
Margaret Phillips b 8 March d 28 March 1889.
Mary Anne Phillips was registered as born at ‘Jindah’which appears to be a property or locality on the Mary River west of Maryborough.
He was also listed as a landholder and publican .
He purchased a property ‘BonaVista’ at Walla 1883 and later resided there.
Mabel Alice (IGI) was married at ‘Bona Vista’ in 1887 and Margaret was born there in 1888. I believe there is a gravestone for her on the property which would suggest they still lived there when she died in March 1889.
In 1897, at the time of May Lydia’s marriage the family home was ‘ ‘Cuba Plantation’ Burnett River’, and James William was described as a sugar planter. ‘Cuba’ in 1988, had been described as having 70 acres under cane, under a prior owner.
A JW Phillips was the licensee of the ‘Doolbi’ hotel in Childers from 1898 to1904.
I am not sure if this is our James William. In June 1905, James William became the licensee of the ‘ Railway Hotel’ in Bundaberg and held the license June 1912.
In other notes it also says that he was the licensee of the ‘North Bundaberg Hotel’ in 1918 and that he owned Phillips Cordials which was managed by his son Virgil. ( B’berg and District Pioneers)
