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.

Do you know someone who can help? Share this:

Dear Itellya
I was an avid family researcher about 15 years ago and have only recently returned to the fascinating pastime.
It was very exciting to read your story on Thomas Waldron, Pioneer of Mornington as he was my Great, Great, Great Grandfather.
I have previously been unable to find any information about Thomas other than his marriage to Ada Cherry and records of his children, in particular my G.G. Grandfather, Alfred Edward Waldron, who was born in Mornington in the 1850's. Alfred (or "Topsy" as he was known) came to South Australia in the late 1870's and resided here for the remainder of his life. He was famous here as an Australian Rules footballer, captaining this State's team on a number of occasions and leading his local team, Norwood, to the Championship of Australia.
I would love to read more of Ada's letter book and wonder if you would be able to put me in touch with Margaret Royston.
I'd be very happy to share any information I can with anyone who is interested.
Kindest regards

If Patsch wants to let me have an email address I can email them what I have of the letter book . Neither of the addresses in the phone book will help now
"topsy" was my great uncle. I've never been able to find a death record for Thomas my great grandfather - I did wonder if he went to SA with his son
