      MR. THOMAS CHIPPER.
      At Katanning on Sunday, Mr. Thomas  Chipper, who was believed to be the second white male child born in Western  Australia, died from a heart trouble at   the age of 72. He was the eldest son of Mr. John Chipper, who came out from   England in 1829. He was at one time  in his career contractor for the mails,  which had to be carried overland from Perth to Albany, sometimes taking a  week in transit. He had been living for  some considerable time past at Wagin,   but owing to failing heath was staying during the last few months at the resi- dence of his son-in-law, Mr. F. H.   Piesse, where his death occurred. Mrs.  George, wife of Mr. W. A. George, su-perintendent of the Fremantle prison, is  a sister of the deceased gentleman.

    • Died aged 72 in 1903 so born about 1831 his father named as John Chipper.

      Thomas mentioned in the book p. 161-2  "The Bride Ships - Experiences of Immigrants Arriving In Western Australia, 1849-1889." by Rica Erickson ( ISBN: 0 85905 162 5 ) also Maley, J.S. 193, 198, 200

      "To add to Stephen Richard's worries his sister Maria Agnes was married in 1879, to a widower named Thomas Chipper. He was an innkeeper at Kojonup and then at Albany. He had a daughter, older than Maria Agnes, who resented having to submit the household management to a younger person. It was an unhappy situation made unbearable when Chipper became very ill and his daughter more dominant. Reminders of Maria Agnes' convict parentage would have embittered their relationship. Albany was so distant from Perth Stephen could offer little support."

      "Soon after Mary's marriage, Maria Agnes sent an urgent telegram to Stephen appealing for help. Thomas Chipper was not expected to live long and his daughter assumed total control of the business as well as household affairs. Maria Agnes with her two daughters and infant son were ousted from their home. This was in 1887 when the only public transport between Perth and Albany was by the monthly coastal steamer or the monthly mail coach. Both had just left for Albany so Stephen set out on foot. On arrival at Albany he secured accommodation for the two girls with the nuns at the convent and arranged for Maria to board the steamboat on its next run to Fremantle. Because he could not afford to be away from the family bootmaking business for long he then trusted once more to his bootleather and set out on foot for Perth."
