R/RFHA Newsletter, June 1996                                   P.19

The inimitable Charlotte Kunold has struck again. As you know, Charlotte writes to persons all over the world who are RAWLIN/s or ROLLIN/s. She received the following from another gentleman in New Zealand, and we publish it because it's quite interesting.

Letter from MAX RAWLINS, 16 Wenderham Place, Nelson, NZ

"Dear Charlotte: Debbie, my daughter, has passed your letter on to me as she knows very little about the RAWLINS family.

I am sorry to say I can not be of any help either. My grandfather, CHARLES CHAMPION RAWLINS, was born in Lancaster, England, in 1846. Educated in Winchester, England, he was a mining engineer and civil engineer. His father was a paper maker and his mother's surname was Hunt according to the birth certificate. He was in Victoria, Australia, in 1880, and helped the police during the capture of Ned Kelly, their most famous outlaw, for which he received the 7th highest award of the reward money. He had married my grandmother in 1897, and my father was the eldest of four children, the last of whom died in 1979 in the Mt. Erebus air crash down at the South Pole. There was a big difference in my grandparents' ages. It's very hard to believe but we've never been able to find out my grandfather's situation before he married my grandmother. She would never mention it although we are sure he had another family somewhere.

Wishing you luck in your efforts. Yours Sincerely,

MAX RAWLINS.
