Sunday 12 November 2017

Sue Stenning & Goran Terzic

The next meeting of The Prospect Heritage Trust will be at 10.30am. on Sunday, 12th November, 2017. The venue for the meeting will be ‘The Pincott House’, which is the white house situated on William Lawson Drive, Prospect Reservoir, near the round-a-bout.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE GUEST SPEAKERS WILL GIVE THEIR PRESENTATION BEGINNING AT 10.30 AM & THE MONTHLY MEETING WILL FOLLOW MORNING TEA.


Sue has been a family historian for over 25 years. She has been the Convenor of the Writing Discussion Group at the Society of Australian Genealogists (SAG) since its commencement in 2013. In her spare time she is the Online Parish Clerk (OPC) for Castle Combe in Wiltshire and is writing a series of articles on men who served in WWI for the local magazine there.


Goran’s family came to Australia in 1970. They ended up living in a house on Greystanes Road.  

Goran’s interest in Greystanes House started out of curiosity. He attended Greystanes High School where he read the plaque on the old brickwork at the front of the school. He always wanted to learn more about the house so now he finally has. 


Goran will present the background of the house and its owners, up to Dr. Stewart McKay who rented it as a weekender from 1910. A visitors’ book covering the later years of his occupation, 1917-1922, records the names of over fifty people entertained there. Sue will introduce you to some of them, including war heroes, actors, and ladies of high society.
