Australian Town and Country Journal (Sydney, Wednesday 13th January 1904; Death of Captain Malcolm Green, R.N.R.
One of the old and fast-disappearing class of shipmasters, Capt. Malcolm Green, R.N.R., died on January 6, at his residence, Varna-st., Rand-wick. The deceased gentleman, who was about 70 years of age, was a native of the Orkney Islands. Years ago his name was well known in Sydney, and many Indian and American ports.He had taken to the sea when 18 years of age, after a course of mechanical training, entering the employ of the late Mr. Ward, of Liverpool. He concluded his apprenticeship in the employ of Messrs. Duncan Dunbar and Company, and sub-sequently commanded the ships Waterloo, Dun-can Dunbar, Vimiera, and Sarah Grice. On coming into Sydney, in 1857, as chief mate of the Waterloo, he heard that his brother, Captain James Green, of the Dunbar, had been wrecked at Sydney Heads, losing his life, his ship, and all hands but one. The scene of this wreck was not at The Gap, at Watson's Bay, as is generally supposed,but some distance to the southward
of it. A portion of the fortification fence has been placed over the spot, a little to the north of the hotel, and it has been suggested that some permanent mark should be erected to denote the spot at which occurred one of the most awful catastrophes of our coast.
After retiring from the sea Captain Malcolm Green was for some years in the employ of Mr.Washington Soul, a former shipmate, and old friend, but ill health compelled him to retire from active pursuits some five years ago. He leaves a widow and two sons. It is appropriate that the old sailor was buried at the South Head Cemetery.

Sydney Morning Herald Thurs. 3rd Dec. 1936 OBITUARY. DR. J. L. T. ISBISTER. Dr. J. L. T. Isbister died at his residence, Wollstonecraft, on Tuesday. He belonged to a South Australian pioneer family, and was a graduate of Adelaide University, where, in addition to his medical degrees, he was also a Bachelor of Science. As a young man, he came to Sydney, and was for a time a resident at Sydney Hospital. He began practising at North Sydney about 35 years ago. His practice at North Sydney, and in recent years in Macquarie-street, was an extensive one, a feature of it being the large amount of gratuitous work which he did amongst those unable to pay for medical attention. Dr. Isbister was honorary gynaecologist at the Royal North Shore Hospital for 27 years, and, on his retirement from this position in 1928, he was appointed honorary consulting gynaecologist. At various times he acted as representative of the medical staff on the board of directors of the hospital. He was a
prominent member of the British Medical Association and the Medical Defence Union, and one of the foundation Fellows of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons. Mrs. Isbister survives him, and two sons are students at Sydney University. The funeral, which was a private one, took
place yesterday afternoon at the Northern Suburbs Crematorium.

THE LATE MRS. DAVID STRANG,SENIOR. (From the 'Goulburn Herald.')
On the 9th September, at Adelaide,Inverell, the death occurred of Jessie,relict of the late David Strang, M.D.,F.R.C.S., E., aged 91 years.The deceased lady, who was a very old colonist, was a native of Kircaldy,Scotland. Having been left an orphan at the early age of 14 years, she came, with her brothers, to Australia; and after spending some little time in Western Australia, finally settled in Tasmania. In the course of a few years she was married to Dr. Strang, who was practising at that time in the Cambelltown district, and many thrilling stories were remembered by her of the doings of those early days. Dr. and Mrs. Strang remained in Tasmania for about fifteen years, and the greater part of their family wore born there. In 1846 they came to New South Wales, and Dr. Strang, owing to failing health, gave up active practice, turning his attention to agricultural and pastoral pursuits, residing in the district of Goulburn right on to the end of his life, being called to rest on 12th December, 1883, at the age of 77 years.Mrs. Strang then accompanied her sons to Inverell, where her last years were passed; and in every one of those places where the years of her long life were spent she won the highest esteem and love of all with whom she came in contact. Clever, high-spirited, and possessed of a generous, unselfish disposition,she was ever ready to extend kindness and to further the interests of all around her ; while in her own home and family her example was one which all might do well to follow, and her loss will long be felt. A true Christian has passed from her work to her reward.

11125 The Ticonderoga, a double decked ship, arrived in Hobson's Bay on November 4,1852, after a voyage of 90 days from Liverpool. She sailed with 811 souls. Typhus broke out and nearly everyone on board, including the crew, was affected. On the voyage 96 deaths occurred, and when the
vessel anchored off the Black Buoy at Williamstown she was immediately ordered into quarantine at the new station that had been selected at Point Nepean. Here during six weeks 82 more deaths took place, but the sick began to improve on removal to the shore, where they were sheltered in tents provided by the Government, and improvised from the sails and spars of the ship. The Ticonderoga carried two doctors,
one of is whom lost his wife and the other all his children from the fever. "The Argus ' of November 5, 1852, reports that when the vessell arrived all medicine, medical comforts, &c , had been consumed, and that the Government imediately sent the schooner Empire and the harbour master (Captain Ferguson) with supplies of fresh meat, live stock, vegetables, porter, wine, spirits, and medicine, and also had obtained the services of Dr Taylor, of the ship Ottillia, who had had great experience with the fever. A further report on November 9 stated that there were in all 300 patients affected. The Government had then taken over two houses belonging to Messrs Sullivan and Cannon as hospitals, and had also pur-
chased the ship Lysander as a quarantine hulk. There is also some severe criticism on the policy of overcrowding immigrant ships.

11134 The Wingham Chronicle and Manning River Observer Friday 10th December 1926; Saved from Shipwreck
TO DIE FROM BURNS. To survive grim shipwreck off the North Coast, N.S.W., to drift in shark-infested waters for 14 hours, and to gain military honors for bravery under fire, were outstanding incidents in the life of William Swaney, 46, seaman, of Princess-street, Sydney, who died in Sydney Hospital the other day. Swaney had a premonition that his bones would never rest in Davy Jones' locker, and the fear of death at sea never haunted him, no, not even when it stared him full in the face when the Macleay dived to her doom off Port Stephens on October 11, 1911. 'I suppose I'll slip on the first dug-out that comes along,' said Swaney to a newspaper man on the morning after his rescue with Pettersen the only other survivor of the Macleay's crew of seventeen. It was the irony of fate that Swaney, who conquered the cold, relentless sea when others dropped, half-frozen from the wreckage around him, should have Imet his fate ultimately as the result of burns. On Thursday week, Swaney was
suffering from a severe cold, and before going to bed he rubbed his chest with methylated spirits. He then struck a match to light a cigarette,
and the spirits ignited. He was severely burned, and died the same night. It is stated that Swaney, who was a native of the Orkney Islands, came to Australia 20 years ago. He soon obtained a, job on one of the coastal vessels. Not long afterwards he signed on as a seaman on the ill-
fated North Coaster, Macleay, and after its subsequent foundering he served in other coastal boats. Then the war came along. Swaney joined
the army in 1916, and saw service in Egypt and France. For saving an officer under fire he was awarded the Military Medal. He was discharged
in 1919.

After several years as journeyman smith he obtained employment in 1863 with Blackmoor & Gordon of Port Glasgow. By the age of 29 he had saved 85 pounds, half of which he spent on a boiler and engine, and in 1868 started a small works of his own near Glasgow. This prospered and in 1871 he began the Dalmarnock Works. He had added bridge building to his work and his first contract was on the Caledonian Railway's Hamilton branch, including a multi-span bridge over the Clyde at Bothwell. {is this fully correct?}. The CR then entrusted him with the first portion of the bridge over the Clyde at Glasgow in 1875. Two years earlier Arrol had undertaken construction of a railway suspension bridge over the Forth to designs by T. Bouch. Work began but, after the Tay Bridge collapse on 28th December 1879, the project was stopped and a new cantilever design was produced by John Fowler and Benjamin Baker for which Arrol was again given the contract. In the meantime he constructed the NBR bridge over the South Esk on the Arbroath to Montrose line, gaining experience which became useful when he built the second Tay Bridge, designed by W.H. Barlow. This was begun in 1882 and completed in 1887; the longest R bridge in Europe. The Forth Bridge was begun in 1882 and completed in 1890. For his work Arrol was knighted by Queen Victoria. While engaged on the Forth Bridge. Arrol was also busy with the steelwork for the Tower Bridge in London. Besides these Arrol constructed the Redheugh Bridge, Newcastle, three bridges over the Nile at Cairo, the Queen Alexandra Bridge, Sunderland (1909), the Scherzer lifting bridge at Barrow, and the second section of the Clyde bridge into Central Station, Glasgow.
