Charles Moore Stratton and Bessie Boyce married in Penrith in 1904. Bessie was the daughter of William Boyce and wife Elizabeth (nee Warren), while Charles was the son of James Stratton and Isabella (nee Malone) who are believed to be the older couple in the photograph at left. The Stratton family were early residents of the Springwood area; James, a butcher, acquired land at Faulconbridge in 1869. Today, Everton House (built by the Hon. John Meeks) and Faulconbridge Public School exist on the property.
