Notes
'Bella' Southwell was born in 1886 near Sutton, the daughter of George and Ann Southwell. For many years she was manageress of the Hotel Kurrajong in Barton, which was the home, during sessions of Parliament, for many politicians. Notably she was good friends with Prime Minister John Curtin. Refer also 'Canberra's Early Hotels' published by the CDHS.
