Note: Mr W H Capon

Mr W H Capon Following several weeks' illness the death occurred on Saturday, 11th inst., at his residence, "Austin," 29 Martin Street, Crow's Nest, of Mr. William Henry Capon at the age of 73 years. The late Mr. Capon was born in the Goulburn district, his father being then in charge of the public school at Myrtle Creek, near Taralga. Some of his boyhood days were spent in Marulan. He entered the Education Department in 1874, receiving his first appointment as teacher at Bargo School at the age of 16 years. The greater portion of his career was spent as teacher-in-charge of the Wagoribil Public School in the Mudgee district, from whence he retired in 1923, after 34 years' residence. He is survived by a widow, five daughters and two sons. The daughters are Mrs J Welch, Coonabarabran; Mrs V Outten, whose husband was attached to the staff of the Goulburn High School a few years ago; Mrs E N McAlister, Tarralga; Mrs L Butler, Mudgee; and Miss Edna Capon, of Crow's Nest and late of Tarralga. The sons are Charles of the ABC Bank, Wagga, and late of Goulburn and Braidwood; and Jack, manager of the ABC Bank, Elizabeth Street South, Sydney. The remains were interred in the Roman Catholic portion of the Northern Suburbs Cemetery, the funeral being largely attended. Goulburn Evening, Tuesday 21 July 1931, p. 2. William Capon Obituary

Note: MR. W. H. CAPON.

MR. W. H. CAPON. The death occurred at Naremburn, Sydney, at the week-end of Mr. William Henry Capon, aged 73 years. Deceased, who for 40 years had charge of the Turill public school, was a man of fine character, and many of that district's leading residents have much to thank him for. The possessor of a keen intellect and kindly disposition, he was naturally held in the highest esteem, and his death will be deeply deplored on all sides. He is survived by a sorrowing widow and family of sons and daughters, among the latter being Mrs. Butler, wife of Mr. Lionel Butler, the well-known mail contractor, of Mudgee, and Mrs. J. Welsh, of Neilrex. To the bereaved ones the sympathy of the whole district will be extended. Mudgee Guardian, Thursday 16 July 1931, p. 5. William Capon Obituary

Note: PIONEER'S DEATH

PIONEER'S DEATH Deep regret was caused throughout the Turill district by the death of Mrs Louisa Capon (75) widow of the late Mr W. A. Capon, who came to Turill nearly 40 years ago as teacher. The rough slab building called a school then stood about four miles off the main road, surrounded by thick bush and scrub between Turill and Uarbry. The pay was bad and the living conditions were awful. Many a time I have heard Mrs Capon say how frightened she was while waiting in their little "wooden hut" for her husband, who had ridden into Cassilis, some ten miles, on horse-back for his pay, which he had to do every Saturday. When the Government built the Turill school-room Mr Capon was put in charge. While he taught the children to read and write Mrs Capon taught the girls to sew. Many people will find it hard to believe that at one time there were over fifty children attending school at Turill. It was many years before the pay was raised to a reasonable living wage. Mr and Mrs Capon were at the Turill school for over twenty years. They were liked and respected by everybody. Well I remember my first visit to them (a perfect stranger and very sick). At 6 p.m. I was introduced to a pile of blankets and a hot lemon drink with a strong dash of whisky in it (I was only staying one night). Shortly after my first visit Mr Capon retired at the age of 65. Some twelve months after I was again a visitor at Turill; this time, both my husband and I had to make a stay of six weeks (on business), but one could not wish for a more considerate host and hostess. Miss Ivy Capon (now Mrs Lionel Butler, of Mudgee) was my constant companion for that six weeks (we are still the best of friends), and my husband and Mr Capon were almost inseparable. From Mrs Capon we received the very essence of kindness. During the whole six weeks I did not see a cross look or hear an angry word. No wonder they were loved and respected by everyone. Mrs Capon was anxious to get to Sydney among her children, but Mr Capon preferred to cling to the old home. They had done their duty and earned their freedom. The number of school teachers turned out from Turill school, I believe, was far above the record for any village school. At the farewell social held at their home there were not only presentations made to Mr and Mrs Capon, but also to each one of their daughters, which again shows the respect in which they were held. They left for Sydney to enjoy their well earned freedom until the last chapter of life carried them off. So we take off our hats off to the pioneers of education at Turill (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Monday 1 March 1937, page 6).
