When George died, Nursy did not inherit a penny and considering that her husband was a surgeon, I found that strange. Nursy lived in rather difficult circumstances when I was growing up. She was the companion of a blind lady and lived with her in a modest home in Randwick. Later Dad and Megan paid for her to go into a retirement hostel which was one of the many responsibilities that kept Dad poor.

His story does sounds somewhat implausible although there were clearly elements of it which were true. I have never quite made sense of it all as it was so unlike Dad to exaggerate. One thing was for sure, he did go the Isle of Man where he met Mrs Livesey, a woman who was to have a big impact on society life in Sydney a few months after the war ended. Mrs Livesey arrived in Australian in late 1945 amid much publicity. She was said to be fabulously wealthy and immediately started entertaining lavishly.

When Nana died she left her estate to three of her four children—Murrum was not even mentioned in the will while his former wife, May, was left Nana's grand piano. Murrum lived at Picton where he sold Ford cars and served as Mayor/Shire President. When Queen Elizabeth first visited Australia in 1954, Murrum had the honour of meeting her as she arrived at Mrs Macquarie's Chair. His second wife, Thora, was too nervous to accompany him so Mum gladly did so. Murrum and our family got on well and Mum looked after John after Nana died.
