I am not a McRae, but researching as we lived next door to Christopher John McRae's family at 38 Darvall Road, Eastwood, NSW, Australia 29Km from Sydney. The McRae estate was 3 block No.34 McRae's, 36 sub-divided about 1952, No. 38 us sub-divided about 1938 had been orchard, chicken run and vegetables and No. 40 sub-divided about 1948, formerly a tennis court.
Their home was Federation style 1890 to 1920 with wide verandas and their was a garage overgrown by vine. When the new owner cleared the vine, he found inside an old chassis of a 1908 Clement-Talbot. It was moved to our back garden with the aim of restoring it, but there were too many parts missing, so the radiator was salvage and is in my brothers possession.
CJM died in 1924 and I was born 1938, but there were 2 isters living there and I thought and Norman Edgar McRae. I now suspect the 2nd woman was the wife of Norman. They kept to them selves and rare saw them, but Mum was friendly with them.
I have more information, but would prefer to sent to your email address, so please send it soon
