  1. I have just discovered that my great great grandfather JOHN RIPLEY was caretaker of the Odd Fellows Hall in Loftus late in his life. he was certainly living there in the caretaker’s House in 1901. he was a Quarryman. He died aged 80 in 1909 it seems. I wondered if any photos of him in this connection exist. He had certainly lived at Loftus since 1871 in various properties.
