Some aspects of Leslie George Dare's life. Leslie appears to have dabbled in politics. There are a number of 'letters to the editor' in the name of Leslie G DARE over a wide date range, and he was endorsed by the National Association Council for Federal Parliament in 1931.12
Brushes with the LAW

In 1938 Leslie was charged with Bigamy. Alice was still alive when he married Thea, who was his 20 year old stenographer at the time. leslie was 57. The newspaper report of his guilty plea in 1939, said his wife Alice had now been granted a divorce on the grounds of desertion. Leslie was considered to be a solid citizen, held in high regard by others, and he stated he planned to marry 'the second woman' as soon as his divorce became absolute. He was bound over. HOWEVER, there is no record of a second marriage in NSW, and Thea does not show up in electoral rolls with Leslie. Further checks show that Thea married Henry Budd BORHAM in 1940.13

  8. Peta King, "Peta King email," e-mail from e-mail address, various, Her married certificate lists her as being 18 (in 1880) and birth place Castlemaine, Victoria. For both mother & father it says “Parent’s deceased”. There has been a note handwritten on the bottom of the certificate. I can’t read it all but it says “Note: The ? Eliza Jane Young having no parent or guardian, the consent of Frederick Call ?, P.M. ? duly ? for that purpose was obtained.” (I have put a question mark where there is a word that I cannot read). My mother remembers being told that her great grandmother needed permission to marry and was under the impression that she was a ward of the state.

    Her death certificate lists her with birth place Castlemaine, Victoria, living 70 years in the state and also being 70 when she died.
