MISCELLANEOUS NOTES, MORNINGTON PENINSULA, VIC., AUST.(VINE, LIGAR ST.)
ARGUS, 29-4-1920 page 1. Death notice for Fred Vine's wife. Great genealogy explaining reference to Fred's stepdaughter, Mary B.Stone, answering to both surnames (in Peter Wilson's "On the Road to Rosebud".)
While researching the FRANKLINFORD journal, I discovered that Ligar St and Whybrow St in that township would have been named after the Surveyor General, Charles Whybrow Ligar. I had previously assumed that Ligar St in Dromana Township, which was on the Anthonys Nose side of McCulloch St, was named after Ligar Elliott, teamster.This may still be the case, but it could also be that surveyor Permien thought that having named a street after himself, he'd better name one after his boss. I was tempted to assume that Charles St was also named after Ligar but this street was not in the township and was probably not proclaimed until fairly recently. It was not until 1927 that the Dromana Hotel land, extending to the present freeway, was subdivided as the Foreshore Estate by Spencer Jackson.
DESPERATELY SEEKING P.64, Sunday Herald Sun 11-3-2012.
Seeking those who worked for Ray, Greg and David Baker at the Rosebud Hotel from 1952 - 1989 for a reunion before the end of March. Contact David Baker on 0425 700 265 or email [email protected]
It is likely that the Bakers followed the Bacchli family.
