THE HADDOWS, PIONEERS OF FLINDERS, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA.
The death of Mr Archibald Haddow,
which took place in Melbourne on Sun
day last after a long illness, will be
very much regretted by his numerous
friends in this district. The deceased,
who was 35 years of age, was a son of
Mr Haddow, of Cape Schanck, and
spent most of his life in the Morning
ton Peninsula. For some years he
was in business as a coach proprietor
in this township, and for a term held
the Flinders and Bittern mail contract.
His good-natured disposition gained
him the best wishes of all he came in
contact with, and very much sympathy
is felt for his widow (a daughter of the
late Mrs Slattery, of Flinders) and his
TWO YOUNG CHILDREN*. The remains
were interred in the Flinders cemetery
on Wednesday afternoon last, and the
funeral was attended by a very large
number of local residents.
(P.3, Mornington Standard, 6-6-1908.)

Archibald is not included in the burial records for Flinders Cemetery.

TWO YOUNG CHILDREN!
Archibald's age was digitised as 85, exactly as in the article, which led me astray regarding his place in the family until the implication of the three words above sank in. He was 35!(Or maybe 31.)

This must be Archibald's death record. There is no birth record for him. He married Mary Catherine in 1902 (THE YEAR IN WHICH WILLIAM JUNIOR MARRIED CHRISTINA PATTERSON!).

From the Flinders correspondent.
The wedding of Mr A. Haddo (Haddow) with Miss Crinnigan, daughter of Mrs Slattery, of Flinders, took place at Mornington on Monday last the day before the brother* of the bride sailed for South Africa with the First Commonwealth Contingent. Mr Haddo (Haddow) has secured the mail contract between Bittern and Flinders for the next triennial period, so should be envied by his friends as a " doubly lucky man."
(P.3, Mornington Standard, 15-5-1902.)
[* J.J. SLATTERY. Farrier Carey, of Hastings, has not " had enough " and is off back with the Commonwealth Contingent, as also are Steve Corlett, of Frankston, and J. J. Slattery, a son of Mrs Slattery,of Flinders.
P.3, Mornington Standard, 25-1-1902.]

His wife's mother* must have married again to a Mr Slattery after Mary Catherine's birth.

* SLATTERY.— In sad but loving memory of our dear mother. Mary Slattery. late of Flinders, who departed this life at South Yarra on the 15th October, 1902. May her soul rest in peace.(P.1, The Age, 15-10-1903.)

Archie's widow died in 1955 and she obviously had three young children when Archie died. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE AUTHOR OF THE 1908 OBITUARY WAS NOT ACQUAINTED WITH THE FAMILY AND HAD COMPOSED IT FROM HASTILY SCRIBBLED NOTES.

HADDOW.-On October 16, at a private hospital, Mary Catherine (Maria), widow of the late Archibald Haddow, dearly loved mother of Agnes (Mrs. S. Wedekind),Lillian (Mrs. Dan Liddy), and Archie, fond mother-in-law of Mollie, and loved grandmother of Robert, aged 76 years. -Requiescat In pace. (Privately interred October 18).

I have just spent five fruitless hours trying to find a reference in Graeme Butler's MORNINGTON PENINSULA SHIRE THEMATIC STUDY of 2008 to Haddow being the chief shepherd on "Barragunda" (in reference, if I remember correctly, to a shepherd's hut.)
Mornington Peninsula Shire thematic history 2008 part 1 of 2 by ...
https://issuu.com/graemebutler21/docs/mornington_peninsula_thematic_histo
Aug 17, 2017 - Part of Barker's run is now known as the property, Barragunda ...Land Selection Acts. Haddow was the chief shepherd employed ...

The shepherd might have been William Haddow (died 1914) who would have been about 21 years old when he arrived at Cape Schanck in 1859.

I believe that A.Haddow*, grantee of crown allotment 9, parish of Fingal (Melway 253 D 8,9 fronting Old Cape Schanck, Patterson and Grasslands Roads; see link to the parish map below) was the above Archibald Haddow who must have been a brother of Mrs Thomas Tuck and Carrier Harry Cairns' wife, Margaret.
* POSTSCRIPT. MELBOURNE LAND BOARD.

William Haddow may have been at Hotham (North Melbourne) by 1856. Andrew Haddow and William Haddow were both residents by that year and supporting the same candidate in their ward. Details of parents in death records show that they were not brothers but they might have been cousins. Andrew owned a hay and corn store in Queensberry St,on the site of the double-storey building shown in this photo.

Andrew also had a hardware store, run in partnership with J.Wylie, in an extant building, also in Queensberry St, shown in this photo.
