George Washington Logue, the only child born in WA, explains the family’s movements from its arrival at Fremantle in 1837.
Mr. George Washington Logue, who is close upon ninety years of age, and now resides at Ivy Cottage, Middle Swan, is still going strong. He can still do a fair day’s work and writes a good hand. He gave a “Swan Express” representative the following information concerning himself and family connections:
“I was born at Northam on the 8th November, 1839. This makes my age 89 years last November. My father (Joseph Keys Logue, M.A., T.C.D.) arrived at Fremantle on the 22nd August, 1837, bringing with him Mrs. Logue and nine children. He settled at Northam, where I was born. After residing some years at Northam my father bought Chittering, on the Brockman River, and removed his family there. Later on Mrs. Logue left Chittering and went south to the Harvey, taking all the family with her except myself.”
“I remained with my father, who then sold Chittering and went to live at Ivy Cottage, between Oakover and Herne Hill. Here he died April 28th, 1884, aged 86 years.”
“I have lived at Ivy Cottage on and off since my father purchased the place from the late W. D. Moore.”
“I have put in 14 years of my life as Government Schoolmaster (payment by results). Before the advent of railways I have put in 20 years as contractor for the conveyance of Government mails on horseback between Perth and Geraldton, via Gingin, New Norcia, and vice versa. This at the time when the late A. Helmrich was Postmaster-General.”
“I was appointed Supervisor of roads under the first Road Board or Roads Committee in this Colony, the chairman of which was the late W. L. Brockman, pioneer settler of Herne Hill, Swan and Cheriton, Gingin. At that time most of the road work was done by gangs of convicts, stationed about in suitable places on the main roads, under their warders. My duty was to visit these road parties weekly and take notes of the work done by them, and report to the Board.”
“Afterwards I was 20 years a member of the Swan Roads Board, and was elected chairman of the Board about the time when the office was shifted from Guildford to Midland Junction, where it now is. When I was compelled by deafness to resign from the Board I was presented with a testimonial signed by the then chairman and my fellow members, which is suspended in my house now, and which is a pleasant memento of old times and old friends.”

The Fatal Accident of Joseph Logue
Referring to the sad fatal accident which befell Mr. Joseph Logue on Wednesday, a Correspondent at Bunbury telegraphed to us last night: — Mr. Joseph Logue, J.P., left Bunbury yesterday morning, driving his team of three horses, with a rather heavy load on the cart. Everything appears to have gone on well until he arrived at the Brunswick bridge, where his body was found by Mr. John Marriott on the side of the road, the cart wheel having passed over his neck. Death must have been instantaneous. It appears that Mr. Logue left a bag of chaff at Marriott’s place when coming into town, and it is surmised that in getting off the cart the deceased must have been knocked down by a bag of potatoes which he was taking home. When found, the bag of chaff and bag of potatoes were lodging alongside the body. Mr. Logue’s loss is a severe blow to the district, by the inhabitants of which he was held in the highest esteem. An inquest will be held at Brunswick today.
The funeral will take place at Pinjarrah at 3 o’clock tomorrow (Friday) afternoon.
(Inquirer, 27 July 1888.)
JOSEPH LOGUE KILLED. At a late hour on Wednesday evening the melancholy intelligence was received in town that Mr. Joseph Logue, of the Harvey, had been run over by his own team and killed. His brother-in-law, Mr. Thos. Hayward, at once set out with the police, and the body was found lying about a quarter of a mile on the Bunbury side of Mr. John Crampton’s. It was at once taken to the house of Mrs. Heppingstone and an inquest was held the following day. It appears that the deceased gentleman was driving his own team from Bunbury and at Australind took four bags of potatoes. At the spot where he met his death it is a deep hole in the road, into which the wheel of his dray went, shaking off by the jolt two bags of potatoes, and it is supposed that Mr. Logue, who was sitting on the dray, was dragged off by the tarpaulin, which was brought down by the falling of the potatoes, and the wheel passed over his body from his legs to his head. The team went on for nearly four miles, when it was found some time after by Mr. John Marriott, who drove it on and left it at Bundidup. The exact hour of the accident is not known, but Miss Crampton first saw the body about 7 o’clock, and Mrs. Heppingstone immediately afterwards. The latter lady sent to Bunbury for the police, who arrived about midnight. The melancholy occurrence has cast quite a gloom over the district, the deceased being much esteemed and respected. For over twenty years he held the appointment of Scab Inspector for the South West District, and was a Justice of the Peace. Mr. Logue leaves an invalid wife and a family of two sons and four daughters. Mrs. Thomas Hayward, the wife of our respected Bunbury merchant is his sister, and he has two brothers in the colony, Mr. Thompson Logue of the Harvey and Mr. Major Logue of Champion Bay. The inquest was held at Mr. John Crampton’s on Thursday and the body was afterwards conveyed for interment to the Pinjarra cemetery, where the funeral took place on Friday being numerously attended.
Sarah Logue née Davis (1824 – 1899), wife of Joseph Logue
It is with much regret that we have to record the death of Mrs. Logue, the widow of Mr. Joseph Logue, formerly settled on the Harvey River. Mrs Logue was the youngest daughter of Mr. John Okey Davis, and arrived in Western Australia in the third emigrant ship which come to these shores, in the year of the foundation of the colony, 1829, Mrs. Logue then being but 5 years old. After the death of her husband Mrs. Logue resided at Pinjarrah, where last Thursday she passed away peacefully and without pain. Mrs. Logue leaves behind her one son and three daughters, among the latter being Mrs. Hayward, jnr., and Mrs. Sutton, of Mandurah.

WILLIAM LOGUE (c1835 -1912)
Son of Joseph Keys Logue and Elizabeth Goodwin, husband of Sarah Mary Clarke.
Another of the oldest settlers in the Wellington district, in the person of William Logue, passed away at his residence, “Sunny Vale,” near the Mornington Mills, on Tuesday last. Mr. Logue was born in Ireland, and in 1835, with his father, the late Joseph Keys Logue, B.A., of Trinity College, Dublin, Mrs. Logue, and a family of nine, six sons and three daughters, migrated to Australia. The family were passengers in the brig “Hero,” and after a protracted and eventful voyage they landed at Fremantle eleven [sic, seven] months after leaving Ireland. They were detained several weeks in London, and were compelled to put back to Plymouth for repairs. She eventually reached Fremantle, when the brig and her passengers had been given up for lost. There are only two survivors of the family, Mrs. Thos. Hayward and J. Thompson Logue, J.P., of Cookernup. The late Mr. Logue resided for more than 50 years at Sunny Vale. About 50 years ago he married Miss Sarah M. Clarke, eldest daughter of Mr. E. Clarke, of Hampden, and sister of Mr. E. M. Clarke. M.L.C. Mr. Logue leaves a family of twelve — six sons and six daughters — all of whom are grown up. He was engaged all his life in mixed farming, and took an active part in public affairs.

Mrs. Sarah Mary Logue née Clarke (1833 – 1914), wife of William Logue.
The funeral of the late Mrs Wm. Logue took place on Tuesday afternoon last, the place of interment being the Cookernup cemetery. The cortege (which was pronounced by some of Harvey’s oldest residents to be the largest ever seen in the Harvey district, including as it did upwards of 30 vehicles and 20 horsemen), moved from the residence of deceased’s son-in-law (Mr W. J. Blight) at 1.45 p.m., arriving at the cemetery gates 1 hour and 45 minutes later. The burial took place in the Church of England portion of the cemetery, the Rev. A. D. Webb, of Yarloop, officiating at the graveside.
It may justly be stated that never was the attendance at a funeral more widely representative of the South West than that which marched in solemn procession to the Cookernup cemetery on Tuesday. Close on 150 persons from far and near, aye, from Warren, Lower Blackwood, and Bridgetown on the one side, to Perth and Claremont on the other, journeyed to Harvey either by road or rail to pay their last tribute to the respectful memory of one of Harvey’s very earliest pioneers—a member of one of its most respected families.
The scene at the gravesite was remarkable to a degree, in so far as the number of relatives were concerned, including five sons and six daughters (all grown up men and women), three sisters and three brothers (the latter including the Hon. E. M. Clarke, M.L.C.), and a host of others. Distance and time prevented the attendance of one sister and one son, the latter being away up in Kimberley.
Numerous messages were received from all parts (from old friends and relatives) expressing deep sympathy with the family in their bereavement, and regretting being unable to attend the obsequies.
The pall-bearers were Mr Taylor, Mr Geo. Gibbs, Mr L. Myatt, and Mr Roy Hayward. Wreaths and floral tributes were sent by:—Mr and Mrs Ash, Mr and Mrs W. J. Blight, Mr and Mrs W. R. Butler, Mr and Mrs Jas. Clarke and family, Mr and Mrs A. Crampton, Mr and Mrs. F. Eaton (Bunbury), Miss D. Eaton, Mr and Mrs G. G. Gibbs and family, Mr and Mrs Jesse Giblett and family, Mr and Mrs. C. Giblett, Mrs Hester, Master Reg. Hester (grandson), Mr and Mrs Roy Hayward and family, Mr and Mrs F. S. Hymus and family, Mr and Mrs Allison Johnson and family, Mr and Mrs W. H. Logue, Miss Lambert, Miss E. Logue, Mr and Mrs F. Myatt, Mr and Mrs Geoffrey Palmer, Mr and Mrs A. A. Robinson (Bunbury), Miss Katie and Masters Fred and Albert Robinson (grandchildren), Mr and Mrs Edwin Rose, Mr and Mrs. Frank Reid and family, Mr and Mrs W. J. Sutton and family, Mr and Mrs C. J. Staples and family, Mr and Mrs Shenton, Mr and Mrs A. Stanford, Mrs Smith and family, Mr and Mrs Smith, Mr and Mrs Jas. Taylor and family. Unfortunately owing to some of the names becoming detached from wreaths and a number of wreaths being handed up while the funeral was on its way, our correspondent was unable to get a number of other names in time to include in the above list.
The funeral arrangements were conducted by Messrs W. Brittain and Son, Bunbury.

Kate French Goodwin Blight née Logue (1866 – 1968)
Daughter of William Logue & Sarah Mary Clarke.
Just 100 years ago on the 12th inst. a little girl was born to Mr. and Mrs. William Logue, of Sunnyvale, 7 miles from Harvey. She was christened Kate French Goodwin and 47 years later, after having taught at a number of West Australian schools, from Cookernup to Fremantle, she married Mr W. J. Blight, of Harvey and settled down to life on a farm. That was in 1913 and when the Harvey Red Cross branch was formed shortly after the outbreak of World War 1, she became a member. Mrs. Blight celebrated her 100th birthday at Sunset Home where she was visited by many relatives and friends, including members of the Claremont Red Cross branch who, at the request of the Harvey branch, have been visiting her regularly since she came to Perth several years ago. She was surrounded by flowers and also had to cut a cake with 100 candles on it. In spite of all the excitement she was well and happy at the end of the day, though she admitted to feeling “a little tired”.
Mrs Blight’s parents, Mr and Mrs Logue, both arrived in Western Australia in the very early days. Mrs Logue being Sarah Mary Clarke, a member of the well-known Bunbury family of that name. Her brother, Mr. Ephraim Clarke, was a member of the West Australian Legislative Council from 1901 till 1921. There were 12 children in the Logue family, and they were all taught at home by a governess. As soon as she was old enough, Kate Logue herself became governess to a relative. In 1891 she had her first government appointment. which was to a small provisional school on the Upper Warren, and she was paid $48 a year. To take up the appointment she rode down from Harvey on horseback as the railway had not gone through at that time.

HARVEY HAPPENINGS – The school concert held on the 20th inst. was a huge success, the old hall being packed to its uttermost. The children were well trained, and Miss K. Logue and Miss Trigwell deserve the praise in this direction, as they worked very hard to make the concert such a success. After the concert the hall was cleared for a dance, which was also packed. Miss Rosener [sic, Roesner] and Mr. A. Rosener supplied the music. They cleared £14 towards the school fund.

JOHN THOMSON LOGUE (1835 – 1929)
Son of Joseph Keys Logue & Elizabeth Goodwin, husband of (1) Clara Cooper and
(2) Isa Ann Frances Mitchell
General regret was expressed throughout the district when it became known that one of its oldest residents in the person of Mr. John Thompson Logue had passed away at his residence, Cookernup, [Moojelup] at the ripe old age of 94 years, the death having occurred on Monday last just about mid-day. The deceased gentleman who was widely known and respected throughout the whole of the district, was the son of Mr. Joseph and Mrs. Logue, was born in the North of Ireland, on the 9th September, 1835. When he was three months old his parents emigrated in the ship Hero, for Australia, and arrived nine [seven] months later at Fremantle with the family of five brothers and three sisters.
The family first settled in the Northam district on a place known as “Over the Hills”, and later moved to Chittering. After being at the latter place they again moved to a place known as “Up the Spout”. While at this place they were visited on one occasion by bushrangers. This place was situated on Sampson’s Brook, a few miles above where Hamel now is. Later on again the family moved to North Harvey, on Logue’s Brook, the place being known as “Bona Vista”. From this they launched out in all directions. For some years the deceased rented the original Harvey Estate, a grant of land taken up in the first place by Sir James Stirling, the first Governor of the colony. While there he married Clara Cooper, daughter of the late Joseph Cooper, of Pinjarra, in 1887. His wife died about five years later, leaving one son. Mr. Logue some years later took up land in the Cookernup district, and carried on farming there for about 20 years.
This property he ultimately cut up and sold, retaining a small portion for a private residence. About 1890 he married the daughter of Mr W.O. Mitchell [Isa] of Newlands. Mr. Logue was a man of very temperate habits. He worked hard, smoked hard, and lived hard. He took a keen interest in the affairs of the district, and his mental facilities seemed improved with age.
He leaves a widow, one son, two grandsons, and two grand-daughters. The funeral took place on Tuesday, a short service being conducted in the Cookernup Anglican Church at 3 p.m. by the Rev. Stanfield, of Harvey, after which the cortege left for the Cookernup cemetery, where the remains were interred in the Anglican portion of the cemetery. The remains were enclosed in a polished jarrah casket with silver mountings.
There was a large attendance of friends, and among those present were: Messrs Duncan and Ross McLarty of Pinjarra, E. Cook, M.A. Wickham, W.E. Ash, C. Gibblett, H. Mitchell, F.B. Trevennan and Bridle.
The chief mourners were: E. A. Logue (son), Myrtle, (daughter-in-law), Ronald and Murray (grandsons), Jean and Jessie (grand-daughters), Graves, Owen, Valentine and Clement Mitchell (brothers-in-law), C. Nicholson, C. & E. Courthope, H. Clifton and Mr. Blight (nephews), Mrs Blight (niece).
The pall-bearers were: Messrs. M. A. Wickham, D. McLarty, F. B. Trevennan, E. E. Cook, W. E. Ash and C. Gibblett.
The following wreaths were placed on the bier: From Arnold and Myrtle, Ron, Jean, Murray and Jessie, grandchildren, Minnie and Rose Cooper, Mr. and Mrs. Wickham and family, from all at “East View,” Mr. and Mrs. Buchanan and family, Mr. and Mrs. William Jackson and family, Mr. and Mrs. Gibblett and family, and Miss Smith. The funeral arrangements were conducted by Mr. A. G. Weller, undertaker and furnisher of Waroona.

Isa Ann Frances Logue née Mitchell (c1855 – 1949), wife of John Thompson Logue
Former Teacher Dies at Age of 94. The death of Mrs. Isa Ann Frances Logue at South Perth yesterday at the age of 94 years, removed a figure well-known in the South-West for many years and closely associated with early education in that area.
The eldest of the 12 children of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Mitchell, Mrs. Logue was born at Paradise, in what is now the Dardanup district, and as a child moved with her parents over a large portion of the State, as far north as Northampton, where her father assisted in the original opening of the lead mine. About 1863, her mother, who was a Miss Bickley, after whose family Bickley Brook was named, received an urgent message to return south and the whole family travelled overland by horse and dray to the Canning district.
SOUTH-WEST SERVICE. Although largely self-taught, Isa showed an aptitude for study and she entered the service of the Education Board, her first school being in the Capel district. Later she was transferred to Bridgetown, where she was the first teacher in the district. For years many of her former pupils, a number of whom became prominent in the life of the South-West, spoke affectionately of the assistance she had given them. At the age of 36 she married Thompson Logue, of Moojelup, in the Cookernup area, and travellers, whether bishops or swagmen, were always sure of a welcome at the Logue home. After the death of her husband at the age of 93, about 17 years ago, Mrs. Logue lived with a sister, Mrs. Courthope, at South Perth.

GEORGE WASHINGTON LOGUE (1839 – 1931)
Son of Joseph Keys Logue and Elizabeth Goodwin, husband of
Zenobia Letitia Edwards.
Another link with the early days of the State was broken yesterday by the death in a private hospital of Mr. George Washington Logue, of Middle Swan, in his ninety-second year. Mr. Logue was born at Northam on November 8, 1839, and was the youngest son of the late Mr. Joseph Keys Logue, M.A., T.C.D., who arrived in Western Australia from Londonderry, Ireland, with his wife and other eight children by the brig Hero in 1836. On reaching the colony Mr. Logue, sen., first settled at Northam, and subsequently at Chittering. At both places he sustained severe losses through fire, and about eighty years ago he settled on the Swan. Upon his father’s death the late Mr. George Logue inherited this property, and lived on it almost continuously until his death. In the sixties he held the contracts for the conveyance of the mails between Perth and Geraldton, which was then done on horseback. Later he was a schoolmaster, and subsequently a vigneron at Middle Swan. In early years he secured many awards for wine at the Royal Show, and was also a successful exhibitor at the Paris Exhibition of 1900. Mr. Logue was chairman of the Swan Road Board for many years, and a member for 20 years. In 1872 Mr. Logue married a daughter of the late Mr. Joshua Edwards, of Tiberton, Gingin, by whom he had seven children. Three sons and two daughters survive him, his youngest son having been killed in France during the war. His wife died two years ago. Except for increasing deafness Mr. Logue retained all his faculties until about a week before his death. He was a fund of information concerning the early days of the colony. The funeral will take place in the Middle Swan Cemetery at 3.45 p.m. to-day.
(West Australian, 15 September 1931.)
Zenobia Letitia Logue née Edwards (c1853 – 1929)
The death occurred at her residence, Ivy Cottage, Middle Swan, last Friday afternoon, of Mrs. George Washington Logue, at the age of 76 years. The late Mrs. Logue was a daughter of the late Joshua Edwards, of Tiberton, Gingin, and had lived at Ivy Cottage since her marriage 57 years ago. She was born at Tiberton on March 1, 1853, and was married at the Church of St. Luke the Evangelist, Gingin, on February 20, 1872. Her husband, who survives her, is in his 90th year, having been born at Northam on November 8, 1839. He is the youngest son of the late Joseph Keys Logue, M.A., T.C.D., who arrived in the State with his wife and eight children by the brig Hero in 1836. Of the eight children of Mr. and the late Mrs. G. W. Logue five are still living. They are Mrs. F. M. Prior, of Devonshire Flat, Perth, and Messrs. W. E., H. S. and C. E. Logue and Mrs. J. J. Bayley, all of the Swan. Their youngest son was killed in France during the war.
The funeral took place on Saturday, August 3, in the family burial place in the Middle Swan Cemetery, and was largely attended. The service was conducted by the Rev. Canon Burton, a former rector of the Swan, and the Rev. R. Woods, the present rector. Canon Burton paid a tribute to the memory of the deceased lady, who had been one of the first to welcome him to her home, he said, when he came to the Swan over thirty years ago. The chief mourners were Messrs. G. W. Logue (husband), W. E., H. S. and C. E. Logue (sons), R. E. Edwards (brother), J. J. Bayley (son-in-law), Keys Logue and Selwyn Prior (grandsons), James Male (brother-in-law) and J. M. Edwards (nephew). The pall bearers were Messrs. A. W. Moore, J. V. Ferguson, W. J. Doig, J. Haddrill, F. Minchin and F. Hooper, all of whose families have been associated with the Swan since the earliest days of the colony. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Arthur J. Purslowe, undertaker, Guildford and North Perth.
