RICHARD CREAGHE DL'S WATCH - Creaghe Family Historical Society



Richard Creaghe DL’s Watch

Richard Creaghe DL (Esq.) (d. 1837) left this gold watch to his son, Richard Fitzroy Heyliger Creaghe (1804- 1890) with the caveat that it be kept in the family. It has indeed been kept in the family, going next to his first born, Richard Fitzroy (Roy) Creaghe (1844- 1890). Perhaps the watch was given as Roy left for the New World – Australia – in 1865. Next it passed to only son, Richard Fitzroy Creaghe (1878- 1929). In turn, it went to his first-born son, Richard Fitzroy (Dick) Creaghe (1918 – 2008). Currently, the watch is held by Dick’s only son, Richard Fitzroy Creaghe (b. 1952) in Auckland, New Zealand.
