Frederick Norman Scarfe, b1822

Frederick Norman Scarfe, 28, married Mary Trevenen, 17, in January 1850 and they set up home in Adelaide’s early eastern village of Norwood. In 1860, Frederick was elected as the third Mayor of the Town of Kensington and Norwood. Frederick and Mary sailed to London on the 1865 voyage on the City of Adelaide. It appears that the move was intended to be a permanent one but Mary died the following month after arriving in England. In 1866, Frederick returned to Adelaide on the City of Adelaide and within weeks had installed in a Norwood church a stained glass window that he presumably brought with him to Adelaide from London.
