Stephen PURNELL married Rosetta MOULDS in 1854 in the Parish of Marsfield, County of Cumberland, New South Wales by the Rev. William F. Gore in the presence of George and Ann SKINNER nee MOULD/S (sister of Rosetta). They had 10 children born at Dural and Colo New South Wales. They also reared Archibald Robert ALLER sometimes known as PURNELL (son of their 16 year old daughter) and included in both Stephen and Rosetta's Wills. Stephen PURNELL was an Orchardist at Galston New South Wales. In 1867 the Post Office Directory of New South Wales listed Stephen PURNELL as one of the successful pioneers and orchardists in the Galston-Dural Disticts. In 1876 Dural was described as an agricultural district devoted to the cultivation of fruit. Orchards, orangeries and vineyards were numerous and the population was steadily growing. Stephen was said to be a tall sandy haired man who chewed boiled lollies all the time and had beautiful white teeth. He had a very strong accent and the young ones had trouble understanding him speak. Rosetta was a big stern lady who frightened the young grandchildren. Stephen died in Galston in 1912 and was buried in Dural Cemetery. Rosetta died in 1913 at Galston and was also buried in Dural Cemetery. The eldest of their two sons, William Purnell, married Elizabeth Catherine Warwick, the great grand daughter of Andrew Fisburn, the 'First Fleeter'. They had 11 children - nine boys and two girls. William Purnell was listed as a farmer and orchardist. He also had a contract for the delivery of mail from Galston to Arcadia. The mail was carried by buggy, six times a week, for the sum of 36 pounds per annum. The mail arrived about midday at the Arcadia Post Office which was a slab building with a bark roof. Then the return trip was made to Galston. The boys in the family were all involved with horse racing, trotting and greyhounds. A good friend of theirs was the well known jockey of the 20's and 30's Billy COOK. The family also had a lovely pony called 'Slogger' that won many Prize Ribbons and their mother stitched them together and made a blanket for Slogger. When the children were in their teens their house in the Galston valley burned to the ground and they lost everything. It was thought that the boys left a candle too close to the curtains. A neighbour in the valley took up a collection and a little house was built beside the bus station, with a store attached where their mother ran the shop selling sweets and drinks.
