Bertha Matilda Doyle (1888 - 5 August 1976), was one of thirteen children born to William and Sarah Buckingham.

Early Life

Bertha Doyle was born in 1888 at an isolated farmhouse in Araluen that today we know as the Buckingham Cottage. The family lived off the land, selling their farm produce to survive. They kept horses, sheep and cattle and planted a market garden and many fruit trees. As a child, Bertha went to school spasmodically. She had to walk 6 miles down to Kelmscott School with her siblings. Bertha left school when she was in Class 5. As Bertha grew up, like most girls her age she left home and went to work as a domestic.


Married Jack Hymus 1918 in the old Church that her Uncle Thomas built. Sadly, Bertha lost Jack from his war injuries after only 10 years of marriage and later married Jack Doyle.
