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.

The map has just been attached. Arrows point to Antonio's grants.

The title has been changed to include the North Queensland story. By the way, Jason Albress took 5 for 49 from 28 overs last Saturday with his spinners. Go Albress!

While waiting to use the computer, I was glancing through my notebook when I discovered that Antonio Albress was leasing land east of The Dunes Golf Course site from the Colonial Bank in 1900-1. It was 1 of A, parish of Fingal, consisting of 156 acres and granted to James Purves.

Limestone Rd, which separated the parish of Fingal from Wannaeue, from Main Ridge to Weeroona Rd (the western boundary of The Dunes), was the northern boundary of Antonio's land. The eastern boundary was Devonport Drive and the southern boundary was Sandy Point Rd. (Melway 251 J-K approximately.)

Serina Rd may have been meant to honour a member of the Albress family (Seraphina.) If oldtimers wrote the surname as Albas, it is possible that Antonio's daughter's name suffered from similar corruption.

Patrick Sullivan had a lime kiln on the site of The Dunes which still exists and the Shire of Flinders Heritage Study has much detail about it. When Patrick died, his son, James, took it over but with his focus on the Gracefield Hotel and supplying firewood, James put the management of the kiln in the hands of Antonio Albress. With Antonio on crown allotment 1, he would not have been more than a five minute walk from the kiln. It is a fair bet that some of the lime burnt in the kiln came from Antonio's leased land.
