Itellya is researching local history on the Mornington Peninsula and is willing to help family historians with information about the area between Somerville and Blairgowrie. He has extensive information about Henry Gomm of Somerville, Joseph Porta (Victoria's first bellows manufacturer) and Captain Adams of Rosebud.

I'm correcting the text in some of the stuff from trove, but only using context rather than from the actual articles.

When did Hay Lonie move north?

In the shire of Broadmeadows, there was only one contest in 1879, in the Broadmeadows riding, between two candidates who were neighbours. Hay Lonie of Camp Hill was shortly to make his move north but retained the property, leasing it to David Williamson. Edmund Dunn was the owner of Viewpoint (see journal)the farm adjoining Camp Hill at the northern boundary of today's Camp Hill Park. (P.5, Argus, 2-8-1879.)

BEALE.-On the 13th April, at her late residence,46 Moonee-street, Ascotvale, Mary, beloved wife of John Beale, sen., late of King street, Melbourne, aged 77 years.
(P.1, Argus, 14-4-1902.)

The above is a trove result that Beale genealogists may never have found, except by the greatest luck, which I had, noticing it as I scrolled down the digitised text in a search for "lochton, bulla." Even after I had corrected the digitised text, a search for "death, mary beale, ascot vale" refined to The Argus in 1902,brought no result but lochton, bulla with the same refinements produced only this page.

This indicates that correcting the D.T. does not improve the search results. The surname was printed in the paper as BEAELE and John Beaele.

So it was Mary who experienced the joy of bringing the twin girls into the world and the grief caused by their early deaths from diptheria; Rachelle Rd* was probably named after one of the twins.
(*the southern part of which indicates the eastern boundary of 11B,Doutta Galla, much of which became part of Shelton Farm.)

If anyone is doing a Beale (or related) family history, you might like a map I have in my EARLY LANDOWNERS: PARISH OF DOUTTA GALLA showing Shelton Farm as it was when John Beale sold it, transposed on Melway from the title document (about 75% of 11B and one lot, about 50 acres, of Main's Estate across Rachelle Rd*.There is also text regarding details of title document,dates etc.If so,send me a private message.

He was. The farm was called "Glenview" and is shaded yellow on Melway map 15. The section 20 Doutta Galla land is that south of the line of Sharps Rd in 15 A 2 (bottom half) and 3, and consisted of (according to the Keilor rate collector)139 acres. Lot 10 of the Arundel Closer Settlement,north of the line of Sharps Rd, was rounded up to 115 acres. John Fenton bought lot 10 from Alf and renamed it Dunnawalla.
