TWENTIETH CENTURY CRAWSHAWS



Conrad Kraushaar, known as Con Crawshaw from the time of WW I (though the name was never changed by deed poll), the author's grandfather married Fanny Ina ("Dot") Lister in Orange in 1910.

A. Kraushaar & Sons - 1916

He and his brothers Percy and Carey carried on the confectionery business mentioned in the Saga . Con and family moved to Thirroul for many years to manage distribution of sweets on the south coast of NSW, while his brothers managed the factory and outlet in Darlinghurst (photo at right). During World War I, the German name on the shop excited public antagonism so, even though the family had had nothing to do with Germany for 150 years, they deemed it prudent to change to an English surname soon after this photo was taken.

In later years, the Con Crawshaw family moved back to Sydney, where they resided at 4 Arkland St., Cammeray (33°49'17.00"S, 151°12'57.20"E), now redeveloped.

Con and Dot are buried in Sydney's Northern Suburbs (now Macquarie Park) cemetery (347'17.08"S, 151 8'24.18"E). For the story of Dot's family, see also the Tom/Lister website.

Conrad begat Milton (born Kraushaar in 1912, but known as Crawshaw from an early age) and his four sisters: Charity ("Chattie"), Joy, Hope and Faith (photographed in 1937; at Chattie's wedding in 1953; and again in 2011).
