About this object

Statements for Estate Thomas George Quilter .

Thomas died in February 1943 while serving in World War Two leaving a widow, Clara and infant son, Geoffrey. We accepted these documents to show how losing her husband during World War Two financially affected this widow.

The Quilter and McConnell families wrapped themselves around Clara and Geoffrey. Clara lived in Mataura for the rest of her life later marrying Ray Hicks in 1951. After finishing school, Geoffrey followed in his father's footsteps as a forester with the N.Z. Forest Service.

We have a significant collection of Thomas, Clara and Geoffrey Quilter's papers and personal effects. Collectively they provide a closer insight as to how World War Two affected a local family.
