DR TRENERY: Advert. Back Creek. “Diseases of a secret nature”. (MADA 27/6/1859. ) Played the Dougall Creature at Theatre Royal. Lamplough. (MADA 13/2/1860). UL 7/3/1860. Advert. High Street, Mountain Creek.. “The Pioneer”, 16/2/1861.) Advert. Dispensary and consulting rooms, Mountain Creek. (NWC 10/5/1861). Item re an inquest refers to your late townsman. [Ararat or Inglewood?] (MAA 28/6/1861). Committed to trial for malpractice re Eliza Rendall. (MADA 1/7/1861). Thomas Maiden Trenery the youngest son of William Trenery & Mary James was Christened in Redruth Cornwall in 1823. He was born into a family of middle class merchant, farmers and hotelkeepers. On the 27Aug.1845 Thomas m arries Rebecca Gibbs in London, his address was Praed St, near the London teaching hospital St. Mary’s. It is here that I believe that Thomas may have done some medical training but Thomas’ medical qualifications are somewhat dubious. The B.M.A. records f or 1 851 list Thomas as a practising doctor but he has an asterisk next to his name which denotes “doctors practising in or near London who after repeated requests have not made any return of the nature of his qualifications and whose name cannot be ident ified in the list of members of the University of London, The Royal College of Surgeons of England or the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries, London.” On the 1851 census London is Thomas 28years occupation Chemist he is living with Rebecca 34 yrs. and their infant daughter Penrose 3 months in Lisson Grove London. In 1853 Thomas is back in Redruth where he joins the Freemasons. The following year 1854 his second daughter Alice Marden is born, but sadly in 1855 Penrose dies in Islington. On the ship the “Guy Mannering” in 1857 there is a Thomes Trenery “labourer” travelling alone to Australia. (I have found no references to another Thomas Trenery in Australia) so I feel this is the same person. Thomas heads to the Victorian Goldfields where he starts pract ising medicine at one stage in Back Creek and also at Mountain Creek, specialising in “diseases of a secret nature” with advertisements boasting of his “great experience in such diseases and having been connected with the Lock Hospital London”. The Lock Hospital was the first Venereal Diseases Hospital established in London. It is around this time he meets Jane Adelaide Furniesse 20yrs his junior who was born in Sth. Australia in 1843. Their first child Haidee Penrose was born in 1861 in Navarre, the same y ear Thomas is charged with manslaughter after the death in Navarre of Eliza Rendall in childbirth. Thomas spends the night in the lock-up with the local journalist noting “that I am not a lawyer by education but by observation I am. I have observed that man slaughter is a bailable offence but for some reason or other our magistrate refuses bad for Dr. Trenery until communication can be made with the Attorney-General”. Thomas and Jane’s second child William is born in Maryborough in 1884 followed by three more children in Sydney. Frederick 1865, Ernest 1868 and Florence 1870. Thomas died in Sydney in 1872 of “softening of the brain” ironically the polite way for the era to describe sy philis of the nervous system. Before this time Jone Adelaide had left him and the children and was living in Melbourne under the name oaf Norton. On Thomas’ death certificate his occupation is surgeon and under “children of marriage” it states – married England one daughter living. However in his will he leaves all his assets sworn at 200 pounds to be used for the care and education of his Australian born children aged 12 to 2 yrs. Jane Adelaide and a friend Th omas Carter are named executor. Jane Adelaide later marries for the first time to Joseph Jordan Bale in 1878 and has 8 more children. Haidee marries Ewan McMillan eldest son of East Gippsland explorer Angus McMillan. William becomes a dentist. Frederick becomes a hansom cab driver and later a gardener. Ernest becomes a baker. Florence died in 1885 in Landsborough aged 15yrs. Alice Marden married John Stevenson in England. (Information supplied by Kim Trenery, Victoria, 4 January 2002.

He arrived from England on the Aboukir in 1847 with his wife Elizabeth (nee Pascoe) and 5 children, and moved to Burra, probably to mine copper there, and had two further children during this time. They appear to have followed gold (as many did from Burra) and moved to the Avoca district, where three more children were born. Your records page shows that he was a storekeeper. His wife passed away in 1874, and Henry passed away in 1887 (aged about 76). He is buried with his wife Elizabeth and son William Edward in Avoca Cemetery, Victoria.” From family researcher Matt Hall in the USA (2007) who may be contacted at cispt2 at (substitute @ for at).
