Introduction | Gordon | Killara | Ku-ring-gai | Lindfield | Pymble | Roseville | St Ives | Turramurra | Wahroonga | Warrawee
What is Ku-ring-gai? The name is that of one of the area’s aboriginal tribes, the variously spelt Gurringai. In 1894, the tribal name was adapted for the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. In 1906 it was also taken by the first local government authority for the area, the Ku-ring-gai Shire Council.
The municipality of Ku-ring-gai is a predominantly residential area of 8500 hectares (85 square kilometres), stretching from Roseville, 108 metres above sea level and 10 km north of Sydney harbour to Wahroonga, 210 metres above sea level and 20 km from the harbour. It is surrounded by three major national parks and is home to some 107,000 people. The average annual rainfall is 1118 mm. There are many tree-lined streets fronting substantial homes. Many of the older homes are architect-designed and surrounded by attractive gardens.
Ku-ring-gai has the reputation of being conservative, with a relatively homogeneous and stable population. Of recent years that character has been modified slightly. At the 1996 census, 30% of Ku-ring-gai’s population were born overseas. In 2006 this figure was 36.5%. In 2006, English was the only language spoken at home in 80% of households, indicating that 20% spoke another language exclusively or in addition to English. There is much greater cultural and culinary diversity than twenty years ago. Ku-ring-gai remains essentially a conservative area, where traditional values are respected. It is a pleasant part of Sydney in which to live.
What has made Ku-ring-gai so distinctive? Many observers point to its architectural heritage. Real estate agents highlight its ‘gentlemen’s residences’, its larger than average suburban allotments, its building covenants, its social composition. Others note its many fine gardens, its retention of native eucalypts, its surrounding bushland reserves. With its restricted commercial development and its want of any industrial area, it has been described as Sydney’s most successful attempt to create a ‘peculiarly Australian Suburban Arcady’. (Robert Moore, Helen Proudfoot and others, Municipality of Ku-ring-gai, Heritage Study, 1987)
None of these factors, however, adequately explains what gives Ku-ring-gai its special character. To do so, we need to look at its history and to observe particularly what happened in the decades of Australian federation, between 1890 and the first World War.
Throughout the 19th century the settlements north of Sydney Harbour remained isolated rural communities, whose inhabitants were largely self-sufficient, earning their livelihood from timber-getting, fruit growing, and market gardening. In this they were little different from other rural communities within the range of the Sydney markets, such as Dural, Windsor or Picton or the Illawarra region.
Some development took place in Ku-ring-gai towards the end of the 19th century particularly in the northern part because transport from Sydney was improved by the opening of the railway to Newcastle. Wahroonga and its near areas were viewed favourably by wealthy people anxious to escape Sydney’s pollution. This was followed in 1890 by the new railway from Hornsby to St Leonards then, in 1893, to Milsons Point. The population grew but remained relatively sparse until the Harbour Bridge opened in 1932. Even then, it took WWII to produce a major increase in population by which time the character of Ku-ring-gai had been fashioned.

1 Latest Girl Panic YouTube Support chrisMsimon Video
We concepted this June, 2011 & made late August, 2011 at Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival, Sydney, in anticipation of and as a tribute to the latest Duran Duran Girl Panic video directed by the master, Jonas Åckerlund & reuniting 5 of the world’s most famous Super Models. That's all we knew at the time about that one. All we wanted was to tribute it before it happened. The weird old thing about genuine approvals and painstakingly dotting the i’s, t’s and T&C's, is when you really want no personal gain whatsoever and wish to provide undying tribute to the music and the host of parties involved in making fashion happen, is how they all say yes when your views are zilch. But all start changing their minds, if your views start really hitting! The facts here is that everything (and that's everything!) was cleared with Duran Duran from late 2010 onwards & "I came by invitation" to MBFFS, complete with an IMB Fashion letter saying "we must be in that DD clip" - (the not for my profit YouTube Duran Duran Support I had decided to make and try and support various cancer charities with, particularly a Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative I knew was happening locally with MBFFS; but more critically around the world with our own Plaque Full of Likes initiatives, still happening now and already having helped build Smart Phone X-Ray. We’re still ‘living’ in hope for a lot more in the future. All was re-cleared and agreed on my birthday & OZ Father's Day, Sept 4, 2011. But between birthdays for two years, we were up against a Google Content Match Algorithm wall & a handful of deceitful flaggers and already proven bogus Flag YouTube Messages, who are somewhat jealous their own catwalk promo videos, photography (or even songs) were not doing, perhaps, as well. DD and their whole Girl Panic Team have always approved & supported us. Indeed, Jonas Åckerlund when shooting at The London Savoy what was going to become the Duran Duran Girl Panic! Viral said “Naomi, (Cambell) Cindy, (Crawford) Helena, (Christensen) Eva, (Herzigova) and Yasmin (Le Bon) all got inspired by that Aussie Mercedes Benz Fashion Clip”. To top that, as I’ve already said, we made it to highlight the work that NBCF were doing with a lot of their initiatives like Fashion Targets Breast Cancer or Runway for Research. Finally I thought, if these phones are so smart, an APP for early detection, must be possible....And it is! At what has always been widely publicised as the best MBFFS ever located at Sydney’s Town Hall, we teamed up with who has been widely tipped as the best ever MBFFS photographer, Elie Nakhell of Proposed Photography, who was sponsored by Miro Door to be there and ProPosed’s Elie signed our release for 6 of his great shots and even acted in our fun Girl Panic! tribute. See ProPosed Elie’s comments in all the blogs and on YouTube and Google: “Proposed Photography Was Very Fortunate to Work with the talented Chris Simon. – Looking Forward to our Next Big Project!” Elie helped us again, this time working entirely under my direction with shots for our special three videos, including “Do You Know Where You Are”, that were sanctioned with remixes of The Man Who Stole A Leopard for the official 2012 Worldwide Duran Duran Appreciation Day that coincided with their exclusive pre London Olympics Performance. The worldwide sound recording administrators were also fantastic with their support, as was local and renowned Google+ musician, Paul Abrahams, who helped me with one of the remixes; and John Taylor of Duran Duran released a special message, remix MP3 and video to all DD fans on YouTube. Our three YouTube Support Videos using the DD The Man Who Stole A Leopard matched sound track are all linked to the same Plaque Full of Likes Cancer Cure Initiatives as all our Duran Duran YouTube Support Videos, starting from 2010. ProPosed’s Elie further stated: “For More info visit fashiontargetsbreastcancer org au is where you can find out more about the great cause!” That local initiative is still linked to the chrisMsimon YouTube “About” Tab, but as said, chrisMsimon YouTube Plaque Full of Likes is very much worldwide. ProPosed’s Elie has been a Godsend in support on this and other DD clips: “Proposed Photography Thinks you Rock Chris! Your So Good!” This FUN video made in 48 hrs of Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival closing has always been 100% cleared and should be able to be seen worldwide and on all devices. According to latest information provided by Google Worldwide, all DD Supports are, as of Sept 4, 2013, cleared. Sadly, we lost the odd few hundred thousand views and app development support for Girl Panic! in the US and Canada during 2012, but it’s gr8 to be back and looking at the beautiful Jen Hawkins again, like a Goddess on a Highway. Meantime, the incredible MBFFS 2013 just finished last month in Sydney and as can be seen in our 2011 viral support video, one of our super high fashion stores, Myer, always put on some amazing shows. Sydney came alive again – the night after my birthday – when the real Panache started with Myer’s rival store David Jones playing wipe out with the ultimate pop-ups, paparazzi, bloggers, dj’s, celebrities, stylists, fashion designers, catwalks and amazing ambassadors like Wonder Woman herself, Megan Gale. This dynamic Super Model who took over Italy is an intelligent whirlwind of a girl and had an exclusive Isola Swimwear edit in David Jones to kick off Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, last Sept 5th 2013. And if Megan’s Swimwear Range didn’t atomize or give you heart attacks or the best birthday present on Earth; there was the Jessika Allen range, Nick Smith hosting Men’s Summer Trends and The #WEARE campaign styled by bloggers’ Harper & Harley’s Sara Donaldson and A Fox That Meows’ Rochelle Fox. And from cats that scratch to some of the bench marques like Camilla Franks’ Summer Range. I chin wagged with her at some show somewhere once and she is certainly or supposedly popular on a worldwide scale. Anyway, even at the worst of times, Sydney is often only ever about exclusive offers, celebrities or VIP parties, but those who got to St James – Hyde Park, just as the sun went down and they were finishing work, really participated with the runways and live shoots and really gr8 charitable institutions like Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, which is all about research to give kids a healthier future and certainly would be supportive of what we have always tried to achieve with our Plaque Full of Likes’ initiatives which have never been only to do with Fashion targeting breast cancer or Runway for Research, but building an app that can early detect in all youngsters and one day cure. There was even the iconic Danish Viking Hip Hop Queen of Avant-Garde, Oh Land. I tried to entice her away from Georg Jensen shop and put Anna WIN-Tour on my Samsung to persuade her to be in Urban Hymn, but she had a plane to catch, Ha-ha, lol. I’m in awe of the iconic Anna Wintour who invented VFNO throughout every Fashion Capital of the World and really puts fashion in the hands of the punter with some incredible interactions. I met a graduate Town Planner the other day, who was really switched on and wanted to travel the world and I started thinking about some of the best or most amazing installations I could inspire her with and Anna Wintour, VFNO and retail displays kept coming into my mind, (along with an interactive rubbish tip I designed for The Fairfax Museum once)…But I love how VFNO does not only stretch the globe, but even driving around the corner from my studio before you hit the City CBD lights, cameras and actions of Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, places like Stockland Merrylands under the hanging shirts artwork have got all the local and Parliament House camera guys posing as paparazzi to red carpet everyone. Face painting becomes far more than just kids’ animal faces, with amazing fashion artists designing a whole range of public face masks, tattoo art and all sorts that I’d kill to have in my next abstract movie. There’s the wonderful McGrath Foundation doing very similar work to the MCRI. There’s pamper lounges and all sorts and its all down to this amazing one worldwide idea of Anna Wintour that’s been innovating for 4 or more years now. We should get her working on some TV-Ad men’s T-Shirts 😉 Ha, ha, lol. But seriously, Sydney’s second City, Parramatta should never be under estimated. The local council have come into their own lately…Not so much with the parking outside my studio, but certainly with community artistic stuff and shows at Riverside Theatres, where not long after Vogue Fashion’s Night Out they are showcasing our own Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE) web series Post Life, that was launched in November 2012, training up emerging filmmakers in scriptwriting, directing, editing and cinematography. From there a production team was created and the seven part web series was filmed in Parramatta and went into the editing suite at ICE ready for the launch on 10 September 2013. It has been made by one of the youngest, inventive and most multi-cultural teams on Earth and I’m hoping to dip into ICE on my next project because they are certainly the largest non-government community arts organisation at the forefront of cultural engagement and creative practice in Western Sydney and they’re right on my doorstep. Problem is you may have heard that Sydneysiders have this thing about Melbourne and Melbournians have this thing about Sydneysiders. It’s why a Steven Spielberg Space Craft was symmetrically altered to pave new streets, synthetic fountains and build a new City in nearby NSW/Victoria border bush called Canberra, to become the Capital because Melbournians wanted Melbourne and Sydneysiders wanted Sydney. However, you can go there now to get your Music Videos created and they do rather still have a reputation for watching lots of those other types of videos that apparently Miley Cyrus really likes. In fact, one of those Grrr Nation Ad Men, or was it that Wrecked for Success guy who doesn’t like Campaign Briefs…I get so confused nowadays, because apparently you can only get into the comms business if you are a reality person on ten (?) 😉 😉 Ha, ha, lol, as they say. No seriously, one of those, eh, Ad, eh, Gurus was going on about how this year’s Federal Election, (like The General Election in the UK) can only be won by Twerking. Wait a minute. Hey you in the black T-Shirt? Did you not mean Tweeting?
Anyway, I digress….
The Information and Cultural Exchange is way cool and it’s often the case that multicultural creative outposts like this unearth new talent. Talking about Triple J’s Unearthed, they voted local, Meri Amber’s song, “Share My Time”, number one. She, (Meri) is not a Parra lass actually, she’s from nearby Granville, (still Parra, really), but it’s not so much the geography that’s important; unless it’s Google Maps, because she is in fact showcased on the Google + Artist In The Plus Channel and on their compilation download, with her hit song and clip, “The Loveliest Guy I Know”. This rather cool new lady singer – songwriter has that unique thing of being both a superb musician and superb filmmaker who launched into our Google world late September last year with her first really public video and song, “Overtime”. And it looks as though Meri might be doing lots of overtime herself – worldwide – if she keeps churning them out. So before she becomes Empire of the Sun, check her out at her launch of some 5 or 6 new songs she’s themed as Wandering MP and there’s a 7.30pm show at The Newsagency in Marrickville late September, I think…It’ll be all over Google…Oh yeah, she nailed a song about the operating systems war. I love that ‘cos I was penning lyrics recently about exactly the same Android vs. iPhone thing and I’m rather hoping Meri is agnostic, ‘cos that would make her a real Pop Star as far as I’m concerned? But I bet she’s just iPhone, Ha, ha, lol. But I don’t suppose it matters too much with the raging views she’s getting. I wonder if she digs Melbourne or even Andy Warhol…..Samsung Note or S4 anybody?…Now Andy would have loved one of them………for 15 minutes…. But back to the multicultural Parramatta for a moment: Don’t miss on 12 September, the Riverside Theatres opening night premiere of Pharaoh vs. the Egyptians, directed by a very well known Aussie comedian star, known as “Akmal”. Full name Akmal Saleh. Unusual to see his serious side and I guess he’s quite lucky to have the profile of influence he really does have across the TV and Film industries to get a documentary up. At least he’s not a trad-ad-man selling T-s, strange tweets about not holding your daughters’ hands or programming recipes for disaster. No! He’s gr8 actually. Unlike some trad ad man, he actually understands the youth focus pov of oppressed kids on Facebook or why they might try and use Twitter that way. Because in places like Egypt that I worked from in my twenties….the Facebook of the recent now…across Cairo, Syria, Cambodia and, really – throughout the North African and Middle East emirates and states that are often oppressed and war torn – is really and was always – the real social media revolution. Akmal’s film honing Hosni Mubarak’s overthrow has researched the role Facebook played in that and because Akmal was born in Cairo, I’m sure that intrinsic value will come out. If you look at many lifestyle films and documentaries or specials that Akmal compares in his sort of comedic or quirky way…He is very good to camera. But this, with him in the Director’s seat and telling it his way, should be very special. Just from my wondrous experience of co-running a Bahrain based ad agency and all its regions, (during a major Beirut War!) and really experiencing cultural differences and like having to get permission to make advertisements from Sheikhs holding hunting Falcons in a desert oasis…Cairo; the Pyramids and winning a million dollar account there for my boss, is a memory I still have, of a crazy over crowded bustling city with cab drivers riding over cyclists and my one-eyed doorman at the historic and opulent Shepheard Hotel. It was a living breathing Humphrey Bogart movie. I often wished to make a Bahrain-Dubai-Cairo movie and remember when the Cairo troubles were all over the front networks – how it made me very, very sad and really needing to be educated more about how one of the first real Facebook revolutions encouraged young Egyptians to risk their lives to end more than three decades of oppression. I hope so much that Akmal Saleh telling it from the POV of The Protestors gives us a compelling story and I have a sneaky feeling he will achieve this. Break a leg mate! I did not want to get too political – except with a whole movie about democratic crisis, Ha-ha, he-He…But as you all know, we have just welcomed a new PM in Oz and now waiting with baited breath for what happens next. Particularly in areas such as Broadband – because really when you think about it – that’s another revolution that all infrastructure could hang from, such as health, education, jobs and maybe the next and even stronger tiers of 3D social media. But on an extremely down to earth level, I was impressed to see how the outgoing party maintained certain seats. In my own local constituency that had been so heavily gauged by media and T-shirt salesman as going to the winning Liberals; Julie Owens, who has been the staunch and loyal Labor candidate for almost ten years has really been neck-on-neck with the new other guy, who will always remain a bit faceless to me, even if he wins! I think when I last cared, Julie was like almost 52% two-party preferred over the other guy’s almost 50%. I think all of us in Parramatta, no matter what our main ballot persuasion ended up being, have at some stage or other seen Julie grooving with health and education. Indeed through her, I was able to get a good sniff at what was going down with the NSW Teachers Federation and local Teachers Association. It was an eye opener and that other guy never turned up, needless to say. However, Kevin Oh!7 did for a dinner Julie arranged…That was an eye opener too. I remember asking Julie at the Meet The Candidates Education Forum what she thought of his preso, which I found, naturally, pretty dynamic and she said, knowingly: “Kevin is always Kevin” - I think I know what she means now. But she really does deserve applause – no matter what the outcome. If you check the clip of her in one of my YouTube Favourites and Playlists, you’ll see her really ticking off the media and giving huge and much needed exposure for Westmead Hospital Staff, Volunteers and New Medical Research. The other thing I discussed with her was her virtuoso classical piano prowess and I’m still determined to get a film score from her and then dub-step or remix her; but I think that’s somehow, a bit of a pipe dream….Organ; piano pipes…Get it? Ha-ha, lol 🙂 Actually, she’s pretty switched on and could be quite bossy, I think, in a high powered soap opera sort of way…So I’m sure she’ll become something strategic…Put her on The Project or something….But if she keeps her seat….Stand by Parliament, ‘cos you’re going to be hearing lots more from Parramatta, foreshore….Ha-ha…

And his beloved wife
Died October 24th 1985
1885 - Birth and Baptism of Sydney
The baptism of a Sydney Ives Brown took place at Hethersett, Norfolk on the 2nd August 1885. His parents were William Brown and Adelaide Brown, (nee Clarke).
The baptism took place at St Remigius, Hethersett, and his birthdate was given as the 30th June 1885. Father William was a shopkeeper.
Other family baptisms
Ada Ives Brown, no date of birth recorded, was baptised at St Margaret, Cley next the Sea, on the 14th October 1877. Parents were William Thomas, a Mariner, and Adelaide.
Henry Emery Brown, born 1st September 1887, was baptised at St Remigius, Hethersett on the 2nd October 1887. Parents were William, a Shopkeeper, and Adelaide.
Dorothy Emery Brown, born 16th November 1889, was baptised at St Remigius, Hethersett on the 2nd February 1890. Parents were William, a Shopkeeper, and Adelaide.
1890 – birth of Augusta
The birth of an Augusta West was recorded in the Erpingham District of Norfolk in the April to June quarter, (Q2), of 1890.
By the time of her death in 1985, the published General Registrars Office Index of Deaths for England and Wales also included a date of birth. In Augusta’s case, that was the 3rd May 1890.
1891 Census of England and Wales
The 5 year old ‘Sidney’ Ives Brown, born Hethersett, Norfolk, was recorded living at Lynch Green, Hethersett. This was the household of his parents, William ‘Thos’ , (aged 43 and a Grocer from Cley next the Sea, Norfolk), and Adelaide, (aged 42 and from Hethersett). As well as Sydney,their other children living with them are:-
Ada Ives……..aged 13……born Cley next the Sea
Dorothy Emery.aged 1……born Hethersett
The family also have two visitors staying with them on the night of the census.
The 11 month “Agusta” West, born Sheringham, was recorded living at a Cottage, West Cliff, Lower Sheringham. This was the household of her parents, James, (aged 31 and a Fisherman from Sheringham), and “Agusta”, (aged 30 and from Sheringham). As well as Agusta, their other children living with them are:-
Pleasant M………aged 10…..born Sheringham
Ernest……………aged 3……born Sheringham
1901 Census of England and Wales
The 15 year old Sydney ‘J’ Brown, a Pupil Teacher, was recorded living with his parents at a house on Church Street, Lower Sheringham. Father William T., (53), is recorded as a Baker and Confectioner Shopkeeper, working from home, (i.e. the family live over the shop). Along with wife Adelaide, (51) and Sydney, daughter Dorothy E, (11), was also still at home.
The West family were now recorded living at Field Cottage, off New Street, Sheringham. Head of the household is the 40 year old Widow, Augusta, who is now a “Worker@Steam Laundry”, (who’d have thought E-mail had been around that long!). Her daughter Pleasance M, (20) is also “Worker@Steam Laundry”. Also in the household are her son Ernest, (13), daughter Augusta, (10), plus new additions Edward C, (8) and James W, (5).
1911 Census of England and Wales
The 25 year old Sydney, a Schoolmaster employed by Norfolk County Council, was recorded staying the night with an elderly couple, George and Mary Ann Chettleburgh, at 167 Waterloo Road, Norwich.
His mother, the 61 year old widow Adelaide, was recorded living in the household of her unmarried daughter, Dorothy at “Grasmere”, Moris Street, Sheringham. Dorothy, aged 21, supports herself with Apartment letting, although she also had two boarders on the night of the census.
His future wife is recorded as living with her mother at a house on the High Street, Near Cliff, Sheringham. Augusta, (20), does Laundry Work. Mother Augusta states she has been married 30 years, (which must include the years of her widowhood) and has had 7 children, of which 5 were then still alive. Also still at home are Ernest, (23, Fisherman), Edward, (17, Fisherman) and James, (15, Golf “Cadie”).
1919 – likely marriage
The marriage of a Sydney I Brown to an August West was recorded in the Erpingham District of Norwich, (which included Sheringham), in the January to March quarter, (Q1), of 1919.
The marriage of a Sydney Ives Brown, aged 32 and a Merchant Seaman, to an Augusta West, aged 28, took place at St Peter, Sheringham, on the 2nd January 1919. Sidney, resident Sheringham and a Bachelor, gave his father as William Thomas Brown, deceased. Augusta, a spinster, was also resident Sheringham. Her father was James West, deceased. Witneses were “Ada Ives” and “James William” – looks like those Witnesses are missing a surname.
(One wonders what made Sydney give up teaching and go to sea? Although when his older sister was baptised, her fathers profession was given as Mariner, so obviously in the blood!)
While running the search, another marriage in St Peter caught my eye – a Dorothy Emery Brown of Sheringham married a Bertram George Ransom on the 11th August 1919. Bertram was resident Nottingham and a Bombardier in the Royal Garrison Artillery.
From August 1911 onwards it had become compulsory when registering a birth in England and Wales to also record the mothers maiden name. However with a comparatively common combination of Brown and West, it was always going to be difficult to identify any potential children of Sydney and Augusta. Restricting the search criteria to Norfolk, however, I did notice one pattern. This was four children registered in the Walsingham District in the period from Sydney and Augusta’s marriage up until the a year after his death. From the probate record we know that at the time of his death at least he was living at Cley-next-Sea, a village that would have fallen within the Walsingham District. The four children are:-
Evelyn F………Q1 1923
Brenda L………Q1 1926
The National Archive holds Royal Naval Reserve Ratings records for a Sydney Brown, service number SD 2668, who had been born Sheringham on the 30th June 1888.
His file reference is BT 377/7/95134 and it can be downloaded for a small charge.
1930 - Death of Sydney
The 1930 Probate Calendar records a Sydney Ives Brown of Cley-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, who died 10th May 1930. Administration was granted at the Norwich court on the 30th May 1930 to Augusta Brown, widow. Effects were valued at £215 7s 2d.
The death of a Sydney Brown, aged 43, was recorded in the April to June quarter, (Q2), of 1930 in the Erpingham District of Norfolk.
I checked the micro-filmed copies of the Eastern Daily Press at the Local Studies Library in Norwich for the period 11th – 22nd May 1930 and found no reference to Sydneys’ death, not even a death notice in the personal column, (although not all of the pages were easy to read). For now I can only speculate what death through enemy action in 1930 meant. Did Sydney finally succumb to Great War injuries, (including mental trauma), of if he was still a sailor, did his ship hit a left over mine, - which throws up the questions like, who would be able to tell which nationality it belonged to and wouldn’t it have been likely to have been reported in the local paper in a county where for a significant number their livelihood depended on the sea.
At this point for me the cause of death is as yet unknown.
1961 – Death of Augusta
