Notes for James (Jack) (Jim) DEASON
James was born in 1900 at Creswick. The family were still there in 1903 but by 1909 had moved to nearby Ullina. It is likely that James remained with his father, Thomas, after his mother’s death in 1910; after which, Thomas moved to Newbridge (by 1914). Thomas remarried in 1915 and by 1919 had moved to Sunshine, Melbourne. Again, it is likely that James also moved to Sunshine.

In 1928, James married Mary Victoria (Vicki) and by 1931 James and Mary were living in the Melbourne suburb of Surrey Hills. The 1931, 1936, 1937, 1943 and 1954 Commonwealth Electoral Rolls noted James’s occupation as: “electrical fitter”, Mary Victoria’s as: “home duties” and their residence: 5 Everton Grove, Surrey Hills,,,,.

In 1965 Jim [James] and Vicki visited George and Grace Deason at their home in Perth, Western Australia. George, originally from Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, was Jim’s cousin. Jim and Vicki were at the time living at 5 Everton Grove, Surrey Hills, Melbourne.

At the time of Vicki’s death in 1980 she was still noted as living at 5 Everton Grove, Surrey Hills.

James’s grave at Springvale, Melbourne is located at “Hakea, Wall Niche, Wall G Niche 147”.
