Hi DonnaLee, I am Marilyn Clark (nee Bragg) and grew up in Ryde. My father Robert James Bragg was the youngest of 10 Braggs of West Ryde bakery and he was born at Leura 1920 to William Robert Bragg and Elizabeth Isabel Bragg (nee Wynn). There was 5 boys and 5 girls.William Bragg (a baker) married to Marjorie was one of my uncles and was one of the 5 boys. So there was Herbert, George, William, Charles and Robert (my father). The 5 girls were Dorothy, Alma, Alice, Isabel and Edna. William and Marjorie had Arthur, Barry, Keith, John and Maralyn and lived in Goodwin Street, West Ryde. William may have been born around 1910 or 1911. I was born in 1947 and my cousins from William and Marjorie were all older than me however Maralyn was only about one year older than me and we have the same Christian name but spelt differently and she and I both attended Ryde High School. William Robert Bragg and Elizabeth Isabel Bragg had a bakery at corner of Park Road and Melville Street, West Ryde close to Goodwin St. They previously lived near St. Marys where they had a bakery and bore all those 10 children. My grandmother Elizabeth Isabel Bragg died in 1947 (born 1875 at Strathalbyn Sth Aust.) and my grandfather William Robert Bragg died in 1939 ( born 1873).He was born on a ship in Temuka NZ. The ship was sailing from England via NZ to Australia. His father and mother came from Staffordshire in England.They were Alfred Bragg and Myra Rowley both born 1848.
