Alexander Durward (1876–1935)

Mr. Alexander Durward, of 20 Seaview street, Fullarton, who died recently, was the fourth son of the late Milne and Mary Ann Durward. He was born at Penwortham in 1876, and when he was quite young he moved with his parents to Wirrabara Forest and a little later to Wirrabara. He spent a few years round Broken Hill, and in 1902 married Miss Jane Black, youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. D. Black, of Wirrabara, late of Cradock. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Durward lived in Port Pirie for nine years, and in 1911 Mr. Durward took up farming at Caltowie North and Tarcowie. In 1923 Mr. and Mrs. Durward, with their family, came to Adelaide to live, and Mr. Durward took up country motor service work. For the past three years he had the Adelaide-Goolwa and Adelaide-Mylor motor services. He has left a widow, three sons—Messrs. Alexander Durward, Gawler; Douglas Durward, Goolwa; and Allan Durward, Wallaroo—and one daughter—Miss Jean Durward, Fullarton.
