    Biography Notes
    • «b»Angas Borrett«/b», the youngest child of George and Henrietta (nee Jeffreys) Borrett was born 8/4/1893 at the house of his grandmother Ann Jeffreys (formerly Leslie) nee McLean at Strathalbyn.

      "Southern Argus" dated 23/3/1899a : Accident at Langhorne's Creek - which might have proved very serious. It happened last Tuesday morning last. Mr George Borrett of Tolderol was driving with his son about six years old (note: Angas was b. 1893) towards Langhorne's Creek when the harness strap broke and the horse became unmanageable, pulling Mr Borrett out and turning the cart over on the boy. There were a lot of hurdles in the cart and these were thrown on the lad's legs. The side of the cart fell on his face. The little lad received some painful wounds on his face, while Mr Borrett sprained his ankle and will not be able to get about for some time."
