EVEN FOR A TROTMAN, QUITE A TROT MAN! TULLAMARINE, GREENVALE, WANGARATTA, VIC., AUST.
After purchasing three lots of the section 13 subdivision,if William Trotman and his wife Kezia lived at
Tullamarine,however it was not for long as they moved to Springvale.By 1867, Mrs. Trotman was widowed,and she sold a total of seven lots (another four had since been purchased, a total of 42 acres) to Walter Clark
of Glenara (Moloney & Johnson, 1998)

Now I don't list every one of my sources as professional historians do, but if I do make an error,such as calling Peter Blom "Percy",I will correct it. The following is fact.
William Trotman was the purchaser of lots 1-4 in John Pascoe Fawkner's land co-operative's subdivision of the southern half of crown allotment 13A, Tullamarine. These FOUR blocks,bought on 1-10-1853 (Volume 171 folio 346) front the south side of the east-west runway and extend south about a third of the way to the bottom of Melway 4 G3. SPRINGFIELD, not Springvale,was the longstanding name of the farm in Euroke/Yuroke between Glenarthur and Mickleham Rd,of which the northern half later became the Gamble family's "Brocklands" (purchased recently for Aitken College)and the southern half,as French Rd indicates, Wal. French's dairy farm.
TROTMAN -On the 1st inst, at Tullamarine, Mrs Joseph Trotman of a daughter; both doing well.
TROTMAN.--On the 15th inst, at Tullamarine, after a long and painful illness, William T. Trotman, aged
fifty-seven years. Gloucestershire papers please copy. (P.4, Argus,24-3-1864.)
SWANNELL-TROTMAN -On the 1st inst, at St Peter's Church, by the Rev. H. H. P. Handfield, James Swannell, of Essendon, to Sarah, second daughter of the late William Trotman, of Bulla Bulla. Gloucestershire papers please copy.P.4, Argus,25-11-1865.)
If I remember I.W.Symonds' BULLA BULLA correctly one of the Swannells married a Dean and people with both surnames were buried at St Mary's at the south west corner of Woodlands. When Walter V."Major" Murphy relocated the church (crumbling because of aircraft-caused vibrations) to Bulla circa 1971,their remains were reinterred in the Bulla Cemetery. OOPS,IT WAS STANDEN,NOT SWANNELL!
Let's have a squiz for TROTMAN burials.

TROTMAN.---On the 5th inst., at his residence, Springfield Farm, Broadmeadows, Enoch, second son of
the late William Trotman, of Bulla Bulla aged twenty-six. Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord.
Before Joseph Trotman decided to trot, man,he was a successful farmer on Peter McArthur's grant, Glenarthur, now covered by the western half of today's Greenvale reservoir (Melway 179 B-C 5-7.)
A summons was issued yesterday by Mr Call, P M , against C R Smith, the manager of the National Labour Exchange, 40 Lonsdale street east, charging him with having obtained the sum of 12s 6d from a man named Thomas Harigan by menus of false pretences. It appears that Hangan arrived in the colony by the s s John Elder, and was engaged by Smith to go to Broadmeadows, to work on a farm at 17s 6d per week, and for doing this Smith charged 12s 6d. He gave the man the following memo addressed to Mr Joseph Trotman, Broadmeadows -
'The bearer, Thomas Harigan, is a competent farm hand, and is engaged for you by your orders to bag chaff and fork hay, "c , wages 17a fld per week He has paid his fee, so be sure and give him a fair trial -C li. SMITH "
Harigun went out by train to Broadmeadows, and walked to Mr Trotman's farm, when he found be was not required Mr Trotman endorsed on the memo , "I do not require a man just now. I did not tell you to send anyone." Hangan returned to town yesterday morning, and reported tho affair to Mr Cull, who granted the summons, and the case
will be heard in the City Police Court tomorrow. (P.6, Argus, 18-10-1883.)
My apologies regarding correction of digitisation. The article was actually on a following page and there was no FIX THIS TEXT link. Why did Joseph Trotman not require a worker? He was hot to trot!
Mr Henry Stevenson reports the sale to Mr Joseph Trotman, of Broadmeadows, of Mr John Jones's estate, Wangaratta, consisting of 1,335 acres, having a frontage of six miles to the Ovens River, at £5 15s. per acre-£7,078.(P.6, Argus, 11-10-1883.)
This John Jones was most likely related to Joseph by a recent marriage.

The motion was unanimously adopted. (P.6, Argus, 26-8-1876.)
Just in case you're wondering,the above was referring to Joseph.(The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) Wednesday 4 August 1875 p 8 Advertising JOSEPH TROTMAN, President. Glenarthur, August 3 1875, SHIRE of BROADMEADOWS) Later,other members of the Trotman kept up the tradition of municipal service.

"Kerrsland," Broadmeadows. (P.9, Argus,10-5-1902.)
A brief report of the wedding (The Australasian (Melbourne, Vic. : 1864 - 1946) Saturday 10 May 1902 p 47 Family Notices-actually P. 48) shows that R.O.Peck was best man; unless my memory is playing tricks, this was Richard Peck, son of John Murray Peck of Lebanon and brother of Harry (author of MEMOIRS OF A STOCKMAN)of Hiawatha, both in today's Strathmore. My guess is that the Scotts were stock and station agents like Harry and his father but I think Richard Peck was an architect.

ENOUGH OF TROVE.
Who needs it when you've got Neil Hamilton Mansfield's magnificent THE DAVID MANSFIELD STORY. As soon as I saw the Bethell/ Trotman connection in the cemetery records,I was reminded of Neil's staggering genealogy.
