THE HATTY FAMILY OFGELLIBRAND HILL AND GREENVALE.
Much information about the Hattys can be found in the comments after my RHYMES OF OLD TIMES IN TULLAMARINE journal. This includes janilye's link to a Hatty family website. The attached article deals with childhood memories of Dundonald. The Hattys did not buy Dundonald. Donald Kennedy and his brother bought much land cheaply during the depression of the 1840's, at what is now Glenroy and the suburb of Attwood. The Glenroy land was sold off quite early but Kia Ora, Willowbank, Dundonald,and Springbank were not sold by Donald Kennedy's descendants until 1929. The farms listed were bought by Orr, Keith Campbell, Attwood and George Dalley. Edward Campbell, Lord Mayor of Melbourne, who had a holiday home on the east side of the Rosebud jetty access road, later bought Springbank.(SOURCES:IRMA HATTY, JACK HOCTOR, SID LLOYD, GEORGE LLOYD'S "MICKLEHAM ROAD 1920-1952", TROVE, ROSEBUD FISHING VILLAGE MAP AND FLINDERS SHIRE RATES.)
After inspecting the HATTY entry in DHOTAMA, I will add any information not covered in the above-mentioned comments.

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.
