Soon after I started collecting material about Walter and his family, I obtained a copy of The Family Saga by Marie Lawry. It was published on the occasion of a Bailey family reunion held at Templeton, South Island of New Zealand on 3-4 December 1988 to celebrate 125th anniversary of the arrival of Walter's uncle Samuel and family at Christchurch in the Brothers' Pride in December 1863.
This book is, in a sense, complementary to that one and includes a lot of information from it - because of migration between Australia and New Zealand, some people are mentioned in both books.
In also calling my book a Saga i.e. tales of legendary exploits, I have deliberately followed the lead of the earlier one in order to add some colour to a mere recital of births, marriages and deaths but the interpretations of some of the records are entirely my own.
The book is a compilation of all the material given to me about the Baileys and I do not claim the version here given is the final or correct one and any corrections or additions for a future up-date would be most welcome.
It would not have been possible to publish this book without a great deal of help from all of the people below to whom I give my thanks for their patience and co-operation, as well as my apologies for anyone inadvertently omitted.
In Queensland: Cliff Bailey, Edward and the late Beryl Bailey, the late Georgena Bailey, Gladys Bailey, Levene Bailey, Lou Bailey, Maurice Bailey, Fanny Bell-Booth, Alfred Gordon and Ann Phillips.
In ACT: Peter Bailey, Pam Biddle and Mary Gillard.
In NSW: Joyce Dando.
In New Zealand: Fanny Fritz, Alison and Ross Martin, Betty McCormack, Phyllis McNair, Ruth Tipping, Heather Watson and Gladys Woodside.
In England: Pam Daw, Debbie Hopton, Ann Lloyd Anne Martin and Robin Roberts.
Mrs J.V.Thorpe Archivist at Gloucestershire Record Office in England has been most helpful in searching original Parish Records for family members in that County, whilst the Secretary of Gloucester Family History Society has located a number of elusive records in their indexes.
Special thanks must be given to Alison Martin for her extensive researches into English records at Takapuna Family History Centre near Auckland NZ and to Jean McNally from Traralgon Vic for making available many of her records of our English relatives, gathered over the past 10 years.
As well, research at John Oxley Library in Brisbane Qld, J.S.Battye Library in Perth WA, National Library of Australia in Canberra ACT and Wauchope Library in NSW helped fill many gaps about Walter's family and their times.
My daughter, Lorraine Gratton provided the cover and title page.
Last but not least, my daughter Cathy Miller provided computer and printing facilities for the many drafts of chapters in the book and Richard Upton put the whole book into order.

NOTES ON GENEALOGY
The genealogy of each family is shown at the end of the relevant chapter. It commences with full details about the parents and their children are recorded in order of birth as First Generation. The Second Generation contains all of the grandchildren, following the order of the preceding generation, whilst Third Generation shows the great grandchildren and so on.
Descendents are numbered in sequence from the beginning of each new chapter and this number remains the same throughout. The initial number/s do not refer to generations, but to the chapter/s in which an entry is recorded and square brackets refer back to an earlier entry.
Female surnames are in lower case enclosed in brackets and males are in capitals and identify the surname of the children that follow.
Surnames are only mentioned in the heading 'Family of' and the first name is always that of a Bailey family member.
While collecting various records of family members, a lot of detail was found about their spouses families and this is recorded as Spouses Families for which an index is provided.
The genealogies are compilations of various records so far found of each family and additions and corrections would be welcomed. An information sheet for this purpose is provided at the end of the book.
