CABRERA – a well-known family in Thirlmere for nearly 100 years until the death in 1981 of Miss (Margaret) – Reta Cabrera. Frank Charles Cabrera had an orchard – Varleigh on the Oaks Road in Thirlmere. William and Margaret Shelly had a daughter named Lilly Shelly who later married Francis Cabrera in 1898 and they had two children, Frank born in Thirlmere in 1898 and (Margaret) Reta born some 18 months later. Article sourced from Newsletter February 2014 – The Oaks Historical Society Inc. Frank Cabrera daughter Doreen gave a lot of the history of the family to The Oaks Historical Society which contains a collection of letters, badges, news articles and embroidery etc.

 

JOYNER – the family were in Thirlmere pre 1900 and are probably the residents of longest standing holding their property since 1886.  The Joyner’s married into the Thornton (Thornton Rosses) family. Also related is the Threlfall family. They held their property since 1886 and would be probably the residents of longest standing in Thirlmere. Mrs Anne Joyner died in 1938 aged 77 and her husband T H Joyner died in 1937. Their daughter Dorothy Threlfall died in 1991 at the age of 97 leaving a daughter, 5 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. (See photo below).

 

CORRY - Mr Corry opened the first store in Thirlmere which was a lock up shop at the present entrance of the Malones Shop. Mr Charles Henry Pickard later occupied the store then moved further along the Oaks road in 1886 and later that building was extended by Middleton Bros and at its time was one of the largest shops in Wollondilly Shire.  Mr Corry also owned the First Saw mill which was located in Thirlmere (on the site where the railway now stands).
