From 1919 until his death in 1957, the Greek Consul in Brisbane was the Kytherian, Christy Freeleagus. Most of the enterprising ...

Phocas, Seraphim (1839? - 1917), Greek Orthodox priest, was born at Madytus (Eceabat), south of Gallipoli, Turkey, son of Ioannis Phocas and his wife Susanna. Orphaned at 5, he was adopted and raised by his godfather and later studied for four years at Theological School of the Cross, Jerusalem. He became a schoolmaster and taught the Greek language on Crete until the late 1870s; he later claimed the Greek statesman Venizelos as a pupil. At Rhodes, about 1871, he married Maria Calezi.

In 1873 Athanassio arrived in Sydney, probably as a crew member on a sailing ship from New Zealand.

About 1882 he took up the lease of an oyster bed at Onions Point, at the mouth of the Lane Cove ...
