Isabella Watson Sinclair nee Lindsay to turn 100 on 14 Nov 2009

by leonie sinclair

Now living in Australia in Sydney, Isabella Sinclair nee Lindsay who was born at Broxburn Scotland and lived with her parents at South Street Lochgelly is turning 100. Her mother was Elizabeth Watson and father William Lindsay. She immigrated to Australia with her mother and sisters travelling on the SS Berrima in 1922.

Isabella was educated at Lochgelly primary school with memories of her teacher Mrs Robinson, who gave her a thimble when she departed from school. She can recall the horse drawn charabang that would stop to take her to church. She can recall the drowning of a young boy in the Loch.

She lived in South Street Lochgelly until the house burnt down. Her father William Lindsay died while serving in the first world war in France and is buried at Saint Pol British Cemetery ~ St. Pol-sur-Ternoise France. After this Elizabeth and the children immigrated to Australia arriving and living in Balmain. Isabella married her husband William James Sinclair and had three children Elizabeth, Lindsay and Malcolm. She moved to Mooney Mooney north of Sydney for many years and then to Yagoona. She has three grandchildren Andrew, Kirsty and Scott and four great grandchildren Caitlyn and Lachlan, Amy and Lara.

Isabella is celebrating her 100th birthday in Sydney with her large extended family. She is a truly remarkable woman with strong matriarch values.   Three cheers for Bella.

Memories, Nostalgia & History

History doesn't have to be in black & white

Your memory of a local character or a school photo from the last ten years can be just as interesting as wars and Victorians.
