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 was told of the Gilligan brothers' deaths by Harry Heaps 22 years ago and was not sure that Jim was the married one, as I had stated in the journal. I entered Gilligan, Bulla on trove and found Jim's death notice but not John's. This was when my 23 years of research came in handy. I changed Bulla to Oaklands and found John's death notice. John was the married one and the journal has been amended.
As usual the search led to another discovery, which has prompted a new journal: FOOTY NEAR TULLAMARINE AND ON THE MORNINGTON PENINSULA.

I finally visited Living legends last year and inside the house! great old abode, hope tye are able to restore more and more of it well as time goes by.The gardens are looking lovely, but obviously not as lovely as Alisters roses.they must have been fine indeed for such a compliment form the race winner.

That is quite shocking about the horse jump form the hotel . *must re read and rememebr where Inverness was). As well as tragic on his brother dying not from a daredevil joyride, but a regular ride home owith his own horse. Poor Gilligan parents!

Very amusing on Billy Gomms' oddly shod racegoing footwear hobbnobbing wiht mr Ansett,haha.
