At the meeting to reform the Keilor Historical Society circa 1990,former President, Peter Somerville told me two things:
1. Solomon's ford was at the end of North Rd.
2. Milleara Rd was called North Pole Road because of the icy winds that blew along it.

I still have reservations about the second claim but the Braybrook Township map of 1855 and Cut Cut parish map of 1884 (both available online) conclusively prove that Peter was right about the ford. If Peter would like to help me fix the Maribyrnong Heritage
Study which claims Michael Clancy's ford was Solomon's ford, could he get my number from Bob Chalmers or contact me through private messages.
