                                                                       DE WITT

There is a believe throughout the Witts clan that there is a genetic link between the DE Witt and Witts, however there doesn't appear to be any documented evidence to support this

Not much is known-- It is known that the DeWitt's originated from France, and from there branched out to Holland possibly in the 1600's-- The most in-famous being John and Cornelius DeWitt acting reagents of Holland, who both perished when they were set upon and disembowelled by an angry mob, according to the romanticised version in the "The Black Tulip" by Alexandre Dumas
  All that is known is that the DeWitt's or a branch of them emigrated to England and this is were the name most likely was abbreviated to Witts.

Helen Witts lived with her sisters in a secluded and protected environment of her parents- Maurice and Mabel Witts, at the family home Willow Grange, were They were raised in the faith of the Church of England, with the bulk of their education being done by private tuition. She lived in this environment until she was 23 years  old about the year 1930. After which time she held a position at the Church Of England Hostel For School Girls in Wagga Wagga NSW. for about two years.
  She Married Thomas Roland Jones at the old church of St Albans on the 2/6/1935 and they went to live at Wollongong NSW.  She had Three children- Ruth Pauline- born 22/6/1936, Paul Lesley born- 28/9/37, and Anne Louise born- 15/2/1939.
  About the year1940, Helen left Tom after a less than satisfactory marriage, and nothing is known of Thomas Roland Jones After that time. She with her three children moved back to live with her parents at Willow Grange.
  Over the next few years and despite of her sister Betty becoming a deaconess in the church, her believes changed from being a devout church woman to a more radical nature, (although still holding to the believe of a higher being during her lifetime)-- until about 1944 she became a member of the then banned Australian Communist Party of  Australia.
  She kept this from her father  who was a staunch supporter of the Liberal Party of its time, and its leader Bob Menzies.
  It came to a head around 1946 When the facts came out in a heated argument between Helen and her father, which cumulated in her father pulling her nose, and she in retaliation emptying the contents of a jug of milk over his head. Following this she moved out with her children,  and took up residence in the town of Moss Vale, where she became more active in Politics, founding the Moss Vale branch of the Communist Party.
  By 1947 she reached an uneasy truce with her father who financed a small cottage for her and her family at Northmead NSW.where she lived and pursued her political activities until financial circumstances forced her to sell and buy, an old cottage at South Granville, with two tenanted flats attached to supplement her income.
  It was here that she met and eventually married- Frank Wilson, who was to be her lifetime partner, and together they carried out an active political life, Her strong beliefs in the common working man remained with her for the rest of her life.
  Helen and Frank eventually moved and lived for many years first at Quakers Hill NSW and then at Hazelbrook NSW, before retiring to live at Wellington- Where in late August 1989 at 79 years old she fell victim to a fatal stroke and was buried in the Wellington Cemetery.
