These sheets came from an album owned by Charles H. Woolcott. The Woolcott family arrived in the Colony in 1832 when Charles H. Woolcott was about twelve years old. In 1862 Woolcott married Helen Inder at Chippendale and they had seven children. Charles became town clerk in 1857, holding the post until 1887. He died at his home, Ivy Cliffe at the head of Berry's Bay in his 84th year. While in office, he would row daily to Circular Quay, urging his boat across the waters (Bulletin obit, 12905). In those days, any eminent citizen was liable to come to business in a whale boat, and leave it at the mouth of the 'Tank Stream'.Woolcott appears to have been a member of both The Concert Society, established January 1858, and of the Sydney Vocal Harmonic Society in 1859, Dr. Charles Nathan (Isaac's son) being president. Charles' brother, William Prout Woolcott, was a partner in the publishers Woolcott and Clarke. That it was that the brother can be deduced from the fact that Charles' father William W., born in Exeter c.1795, married Mary Prout c.1820. Their second son was William Prout (1825-1880). (This information is from a family tree held at the Stanton Library, North Sydney.) Woolcott and Clarke published some significant and historic music sheets, among them, The Chusan Waltz, by H. Marsh, in 1852.Three manuscript sheets:W 1. MS. A beautifully decorated MS of G. Barker's Friends and Home inscribed in gold Helen Inder/ with/ CHW's Comp'ts. 2pp. Images available on request. 2. MS, How On Thou Shining River . signed Helen Inder. 2pp. 3. MS. The Spell Is Broken - We Must Part, written and composed by Juliet Bellchambers, signed Chas. H. Woolcott. There seems a reasonable probability given the background and dates that this manuscript could be in the hand of the composer. 2pp. N° de ref. de la librería 65012
