WR TAMWORTH CONNECTION

Although born in Sydney, Warren grew up and attended Tamworth West Public ( school vice-captain in 1970 ) and Tamworth High Schools. In fact, his late father was a bricklayer, who helped build THS in the late 1950s. Warren’s late mother’s name was Ellen Rodwell ( nee Scott ). Tamworth was her hometown. Their family connection dates back to at least 1915 when  great grandfather John Ditton Scott ( 1871 – 1955)  transferred down from Glen Innes as a railway employee. One locally-based cousin jokes that before she got married herself, she was related to 25% of the people in Tamworth. After marriage, that increased to 50%.
