About Andrija Frankovich/Andrew Franks

Quote From Distant Villages by Stephen A Jelicich.

A younger brother Andrew, a clergyman, arrived in 1912, joined George Scansie's Croatian language newspaper; Zora in 1913 as co-editor. The issues between August 1913 and June 1914 were heavily influenced by Andrew. Then, he and Scansie were at loggerheads, clashing over matters of principle and Andrew was stabbed in the back by Scansie and denounced as a spy. Andrew retreated to the vineyard at Hobbs Bay where the Alien Register of 1917 described him as assistant winemaker. Towards the latter part of the First World war, he was interred on Motuihe Island. When the war ended, an embittered Andrew Frankovich turned his back on the community he had served. The treachery of some could not be forgiven or forgotten, so he assumed a name change and settled in Frankton Junction where he worked as a joiner. He became naturalised in 1924.
