Born 20 May 1871.[1]

Given a copy of Tennyson's works by Jay, for his 25th birthday.[2]

Married Helen Rose Hall (née Lodge) when he was 39, on 24 November 1910.[3][4]

In 1912 their first daughter, Connie, was born in Roebourne (in Roe's Cottage).[5]

Margaret was born in 1915, and soon afterwards Aubrey took a job as lighthouse keeper at Jarmen Island, the whole family moving there in part to get away from the extreme heat of Croydon station.[6] Here they shared the accommodation with Mr Langer, a German national who in 1916 was taken from his post and interned.[6] After his departure, Henry Ernest Hall joined Aubrey on Jarmen Island.

In about 1916 or 1917 he took a position as manager of Andover Station.[7]

In 1919 their third daughter, Joan was born.

By the end of the 1950s he was living in a caravan at Comer Street in Como, Perth.[8]

He died aged 91 on 11 January 1963, in Swanbourne.[9][10]
