Charles Tuckers' Store - Windback Wednesday
The C. Tuckers Store was located on Glen Osmond Road, Eastwood and operated from approximately 1887 to 1892. Charles and Betsy Tucker migrated to South Australia from Somerset England in 1847. Charles’ occupations included builder, storekeeper and medicine maker, and Betsy was a nursing sister. The Eastwood store sold Charles’ horse and cow medicines and ointments.
When Charles passed away at age 66 in 1892, he left a widow, four sons, four daughters and 32 grandchildren. The extended family history is available to read in the Burnside Local Room.
