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.

We were told that the MAIRS property including the homestead was situated where the Pykes Creek Reservoir now is located as you pass along the Western Freeway. The Marriage certificate had David as 35 years of age living in Roslyn Road, Pentland Hills (not Blackwood). Maybe Roslyn Road was flooded when the Reservoir was built. It would be interesting if there are any land records that might show this.

The use of Blackwood to describe the location of Roslyn Rd on the marriage certificate probably came about because Blackwood was an official place name and Pykes Flat (in the PARISH of Blackwood)was not.
