Orrace Stephen Dadswell's story

Orrace Stephen Pett Dadswell, the first of six children of Stephen and Ellen (Pett) Dadswell, was born in Melbourne in 1882.

Electoral rolls list Orrace Dadswell living at the family home in Moonee Ponds in 1909, with the occupation of engine driver. Subsequent entries give his occupation as engineer.

In 1913, he married Minnetta Blanche Griffith, daughter of James George and Elizabeth Hollins (Cross) Griffith, and the couple had one daughter, Elizabeth, born in 1915. Minnetta died eight days after the birth of her daughter who was subsequently brought up by her grandparents.

Following the death of his wife, Orrace Stephen Dadswell married a second time, to Victoria Hope Violet Wallace, daughter of Eliza Wallace, in 1920. They lived in Essendon, with Orrace describing himself as an engineer.

He died on 23 July 1937.
