I thought I had covered the field in ‘eminences haute’ having lived in ‘Geraldton’? I may have missed Number 1 in High Court Justice John Connors. Sarah and I purchased ‘Geraldton’ from John and Diane Connors in 1993. John’s professional career spiralled upwards an onwards from there. He had been a partner in Fitzgerald White Talbot Lawyers, Muswellbrook; itself having a long association with the property through Geraldine Fitzgerald of ‘Hennor’, Muswellbrook later Mrs J A K Shaw.

Perhaps I should raise my game?
