JAMES AND LAURENCE WHITE, AND LOUIS JOSHUA BERRYMAN, OF THE BALNARRING DISTRICT, VIC., AUST.

This journal,like many,arose from a private message. It was originally entitled A CONVERSATION ABOUT JAMES AND LAURENCE WHITE OF THE BALNARRING DISTRICT but as I have found just found much information about the so-called Mr Berriman from the so-called Euroa (who bought 160 acres from James White's estate in 1906) such as Eric Rundle purchasing Warrawee from his estate in 1950 (Balnarring Byways) and the lead he took in introducing agriculture to the district (P.2, Mornington and Dromana Standard, 3-7-1909), Louis is no longer a bit player in the story.

THE CONVERSATION.
Hi We own Ealing Park which is 13 Turners Road Balnarring and was part of the original 90 acres of James White.
Do you know when it was selected and then freeholded?
Regards
John

Having checked in Melway,it would seem to me that No 13 is just south of the bend in Turners Rd halfway between Myers and Hunts Rds and on the east side of Turners Rd. Your property would probably be the northernmost portion of crown allotment 60A, parish of Bittern, located on the east corner of Myers and Turners Rds and extending north to the aforementioned bend, as does crown allotment 59B on the west corner. The latter was granted to L.White (probably Lawrence) on 27-9-1878. Crown allotment 60A was granted to John White, administrator (executor)of J.White (probably James) on 21-2-1900.

James White had obviously settled in the area by 1874 as the following shows but there is no proof that he was on either of the two crown allotments mentioned.

THE SCHNAPPER POINT MURDER. (BY OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.)
The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) Monday 14 September 1874 p 6 Article
I asked the prisoner when he
had left "The Plains," meaning Moriarty's
place, he said, " Yesterday " (Sunday). I
said, "Where were you all night?" He
replied, "I stopped with an old man,
I got off the track." I asked the old
man's name, and he said he could not tell
me. I mentioned two men, James White
and John McConnell, the only two single
men that I knew on the track, and he said
it was neither of them.

There is much detail about James and Lawrence White in one of the volumes of Balnarring Byways, available at the Rosebud Library and possibly at your local branch. I can't recall whether it specifies crown allotments or year of settlement but it may. I don't think the books are available for loan and if you will find it hard to access the books, give me a yell.
Regards, me.

Yes, we are on the northern boundary of 60A and are occupants of a very old single storey weatherboard farmhouse, which presumably was built by the Whites, as it is quite a substantial building even now.

The building was probably built of timber milled on site, as it is quarter-sawn and the marks of the big saw are visible both on the structural timbers and the weatherboards. We are currently adding on to the house in the same style, with its ten foot ceilings. There are also two extant chimneys from the old house with hand-made bricks, which are also quite a feature.
Unfortunately the old buttery and cheesery are long gone, but looking for photos

I just found why John White, obviously not a son of James White, was administering the will of James in 1900. The hay might have been grown on 60A or another farm, of 160 acres, near Bittern station.

James White a well known resident of Balnarring, on Monday afternoon fell of a load of hay whilst loading a dray. He fell on his head and was instantaneously killed through the dislocation of his neck. Deceased was a single man. A post-mortem examination was conducted on Tuesday when a verdict of accidental death was returned. (P.3,Mornington Standard.)

While hunting for an obituary to find when 60A was settled or a legal notice to find John White's relationship to the deceased James,I found a bit of dirt on Lawrence White and his son,James - a sheep stealing charge.

I'll try to have a look at the Flinders Road District rates (1869-1874) tomorrow to find if James White was assessed on 95 (correction,90) acres and if not there, the Shire of Flinders and Kangerong rates from 1875. Net Annual Values usually give an indication of when a homestead was built and extended.

Thanks xxx, very interesting, regards John.

I'm afraid that it's going to be near-impossible to determine the age of any buildings on crown allotment 60A Bittern. Titles information might help but I doubt it because they mainly concern the location and dimensions/ area of the land. I've researched the White land in each year from 1869 to 1907 and then, knowing about Cr Terry's demand for properties to be described properly, in 1911 and 1913.

James White seems to have built a house in between the assessments of 1884 and 1885 when the nett annual value of his property rose from 20 pounds to 25 pounds. There was a further rise in N.A.V. to 28 pounds in the 1888 assessment which could have been caused by an addition to the house or a general increase in the value of farmland as this was the height of the land boom. The value of his land then remained unchanged until 1905 (after 60A Bittern had simply disappeared from the face of the earth.)

In the Flinders Road Board's first assessment of 1869, neither James nor Laurence White was mentioned in the Bittern division (parish.) In 1870, Laurence was leasing 95 acres (N.A.V. 5 pounds 5 shillings) from the Crown. In 1874,the N.A.V. rose to 6 pounds 6 shillings.

The first Flinders and Kangerong Shire assessment in 1875 does not record either of the Whites but the 1876 rates showed that Lawrence was still leasing the 95 acres at Bittern from the Crown,the N.A.V. rising to 9 pounds.As stated previously he received the grant for 59B at the end of 1878 and the rate collector acknowledged his ownership in 1880. The following year "buildings" raised the N.A.V.to 10 pounds. In 1905 the value of his property doubled, obviously because of a more substantial BUILDING. His assessment remained the same for the next two years. The disappearance of James White's 60A necessitated a jump to 1911 and I forgot to record Laurence's assessment in that year. In 1913, there was no assessment of Laurence but James White, the former 14 year old student charged with sheep stealing, was rated on 96 acres, c/a 59 B,Bittern, N.A.V. 24 pounds. It would be extremely likely that Laurence had been on 59B by the 1870 assessment.

In 1876, James White was rated on 160 acres, Balnarring, N.A.V. 12 pounds and he was recorded as the owner in 1877. The N.A.V. rose to 15 pounds in 1879 and 17 pounds in 1881 when he was rated on 250 acres,Bittern and Balnarring and buildings. Amazing! The addition of 60B Bittern, which James must have settled in late 1880 or early to mid 1881, had only lifted the NAV by 2 pounds. The rise to 20 pounds in 1882 would seem to have been well warranted. In 1885,it rose to 25 pounds and in 1888 to 28 pounds, possibly because of additions to buildings or rising values caused by the 1880's boom. The value of the 160 acres in the parish of Balnarring (near the station as mentioned previously) increased by 2 pounds in 1905.

In 1899, some effort had been made to identify the 160 acres in Balnarring,with 74A,74B being noted. This is nonsense as crown allotment 74 Balnarring is nowhere near the Bittern railway station, and in fact became the Red Hill Village Settlement. This is a problem to be solved at another time,60A Bittern being our focus. By 1901 John White was recorded as the owner of the 250 acres,now specified as 160 acres Balnarring (NAV 18 pounds),and 90 acres Bittern (NAV 10 pounds),still a total of 28 pounds.

In 1902 the executors of James White were assessed on 160 acres Balnarring and "William Myers owner" was written in the assessment for 90 acres, Bittern. I must be blind because I could find no Myers' assessment in 1903! However Mrs Myers was rated on 90 acres Bittern in 1905 and 1906. I wanted proof that Mrs Myers had 60A, so remembering Cr Terry's campaign for proper descriptions of properties, I jumped to 1911. Mrs Myers was assessed on 90 acres,c/a 60A Bittern! The NAV was 10 pounds so James White's supposed house of 1885 must have been on the 160 acres near the Bittern station, or, if it was on 60A, in a fairly dilapidated condition. It would seem that the extant buildings on your property were built by the Myers family.

My next message speculated that the 160 acres might have actually been in the parish of Bittern, one of two blocks of roughly that size to the north / north west of 60A Bittern and granted to William Myers. Further rate research has proved that not to be the case.


FINDINGS.
THERE WAS NO HOUSE ON 60a BITTERN EVEN IN THE LAST RATE RECORD AVAILABLE ON MICROFICHE, 1919. The Myer family had occupied 60a since 1902 and in every assessment up to 1919,no house was mentioned, as had always been the case. Strangely no house was mentioned in the 1905 advertisement for the 160 acres that Mr Berryman bought many months later in mid 1906.

LOUIS JOSHUA BERRYMAN.
The Balnarring District. PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENTS.
Mornington and Dromana Standard (Vic. : 1908 - 1911) Saturday 3 July 1909 p 2 Article


The Balnarring district, situated on
the Southern end of the Mornington 1
peninsula, affords proof that even
rich lands, when held in large areas, I
may fail to be a beneficial investment. t
Notwithstanding that the district is ,
within a mile or two of the Bittern
railway station, that it is not more
than forty miles distant from Mel
bourne, that the rainfall is ample and
well distributed, and that being near
the sea ensures an equable and mild
climate, yet it is notable that the
holders of large estates in Balnarring
and neighborhood have not prospered.
As compared with smaller holdings of
from 100 to 300 acres in area, these
large properties do not make a favor
able showing. Generally the fences
are in disrepair, the ground is covered
with fern and scrub, rabbits abound,
and there is a general air of down at
the heels.
UNFAVOR-ARi EXCEPTIONS.
The explanation of: this state of
affairs is easily stated. Some twenty
years ago Balna ring was regarded as
good grazing country. Sheep and
cattle flourished oh the'natural grasses,
and those who had large holdings
were able to put them to profitable
use. In those days there were no
rabbits. About fifteen years ago this
pest made its appearance in the dis
trict, and finding the country to its
liking rapidly increased in numbers.
Soon the rabbits practically took
possession of the whole countryside.
They ate down and destroyed the more
succulent grasses, and. with their dis
appearance went the utility of the
country from a grazing point of view.
Then, as the rabbits kept down the
more nutritious herbage, coarser
growths began to assert themselves.
Bracken and shrubs continued to make
headway, until to-day some thousands
ot acres of fertile land in Balnarring
are thus rendered temporarily valueless
to either the individual or the com
munity. Many of the large estate
owners have apparently abandoned
the fight, and it is the reverse of a
pleasing experience in driving along
the main road from Bittern to Flin
ders to pass mile after mile of beauti
ful rich land capable of sustaining a
large population, but now overgrown
with fern and rubbish, practicaily
given over to the rabbits.
IMPROVING TIIE POSITION.
Within the past five years some
northern farmers have come into the
district, and by bringing the plough
into use have demonstrated what the
soils of the district will yield under
proper treatment. Previous, however,
to undertaking.any tillage work they
have completely wire-netted their
holdings in order to keep the rabbits
out.--With" -this` immunity secured
they have then cleaned up the har
bor on their o0n land, and by ferret
ring and poisoning have effectually put
L an end to the rabkit trouble. These
newer agriculturists have confined
their purchases to areas of from 160 to
300 acres, the conclusions of the more
experienced men being that the former
acreage is ample for one man to ad
equately work. The new settlers hail
from the Western plains and the mal
lee, and all express themselves as well
satisfied with the results already
obtained.
ILLUSTRATIVE FARMS.
A typical representative of the new
settlers is found in Mr L. J. Berry
I man, formerly of the Western plains,
his previous home being about eight
miles south of Buangor. This set
tler's holding is within about four
miles of the Bittern railway station,
and consists of less than 300 acres of
r average quality land. When he took
s possession his first work was to wire
net, and then dig out the rabbits.
Next he commenced to plough up
what has been previously regarded
as only fit for grass. This evoked the
ridicule of other settlers, and he was
warned that by turning up the sod he
t would destroy the grass. It was also
maintained that his experiences with
cropping would be unsatisfactory, be
cause, as it was asserted, the land was
not fit for cultivation. Mr Berryman
preferred to find out by actual experi
ence, and he worked the soil on the
thorough lines which his previous
experience had proved successful. The
results turned out exceptionally good,
and having now been repeated for four
Syears fully justify the verdict that the
Balnarringsoils, when properly tilled,
will yield regular and remunerative
crops.
THU PFAIIING PRIACTICE.
monstrated that mixed farming easily
pays best. Rape thrives especially
well in the Balnarring district, and
this year there are several hundred
acres thus seeded. In every case the
plants are vigorous and forward, rang
ing, on the oceision of the writer's
visit (the first week of Juine), from a
foot to eighteen inches in height. In
every case they were easily carrying
from 10 to 12 large crossbred sheep
to the acre. The association of sheep
raising with grain growing is, in Mr
Berryman's experience, the most profit
able use to which the land can be put.
Last year on 28 acres he obtained a
heavy yield of Algerian oats and
wheat mixed, athick,-well headed and
weighty. The average was 4 tons to
the acre. The same field was ploughed
up again in March, after the sheep
hadhbeen given agood chance at the
stubble. It was again reseeded with;
3 lb. of rape to the-acre in April, and
the resulting growth was so sub
stantial that by the middle of May he
was carrying over eight large frame h
crossbred sheep to the acre. At the
saine. time *another. 28S,acies.of new,
roughly cleared land was put in with
rape, and, although the growth.hbere
is noteso good as on the stubble, 410
large.sheep were being easily carried
ion thi 50 acres.(etc.)

DROMANA CEMETERY, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA.

I remember how disappointed I was when I found how few headstones of the early pioneers survive and how recent were the burials actually recorded for the Dromana Cemetery. According to Gemma Wiseman's photo, the cemetery dates from 1854.

There is no Wikipedia entry for the cemetery and a trove search, confined to the 1850's, for DROMANA CEMETERY produced not one result. The purpose of this journal is to search trove for the burial of early pioneers such as Lawrence (Waddeson?), Watson Eaton and Abraham Griffith, Watson dying as a result of a fall from a horse and Lawrence and Abraham's carts overturning. In years to come, some detail might be recorded about those listed by ngairedith.

Mr. Candler, the district coroner, on Tuesday held an inquest at Dromana on the body of Thomas Bullock, aged 51 years. Deceased had been burning logs for clearing purposes in a paddock near his house at Balnarring,and on the 10th instant, at about a quarter-past 1 o'clock in the morning, his son, when out shooting, smelt flesh burning, and searching amongst the fired logs, found the deceased lying on some hot ashes on his back in the paddock about 100 yards from the house. He was last seen alive at about 10 o'clock the previous evening, when he was poking up a fire in the paddock, and said he would be in shortly. His daughter, to whom he said this, then went in to bed, as did also her brother; and the other brother, who found the deceased, on going into the house found them in bed. Deceased was not subject to fits, but he dragged one foot, scraping the ground with it, and when he got on his back he could not get up or change his position. Deceased was dead, and a post-mortem examination by Dr. Rodd showed that the body was charred throughout externally, some portions being completely baked even in the internal organs. The back was especially burnt. The cause of death appeared to have been burning. The jury found that deceased was found dead, having been accidentally burnt to death.

On the evening of Saturday, the 6th inst, at 7 o'clock, John Thomas Gibson, splitter and fencer at Balnarring, found the deceased's horse, with the shafts of a cart attached, in the road, and going along the road, found the deceased lying insensible on his belly, with the wheels and part of the body of the cart near him. The near wheel of the cart, it was found, had struck a tree alongside the track, and the vehicle had apparently been capsized. There was no track of any other vehicle.The deceased was conveyed to his house, about two miles off, and died in about three hours, without having recovered consciousness. The deceased was accustomed to the track, and the moon was up. He was a temperate man, but was said to be in the habit of falling asleep when driving. There were bruises about the head and body of the
deceased. A verdict of death from injuries accidentally received was found. (P.7, Argus, 12-5-1876.)

UNKNOWN MAN. Burial 23-7-1891.
A DEAD BODY WASHED ASHORE.
DROMANA, Thursday.
The dead body of a man was found here by Constable Fowler's little boys early this morning, having been washed up on the beach below Allison's Arthur's Seat Hotel. It had evidently been in the water for some days, the hands and face being disfigured beyond recognition. The deceased wore a diagonal cloth coat and vest, and dark-
striped trousers ; and in the pockets were found three sovereigns, a half sovereign, a shilling and two threepenny pieces, a small knife with a pearl handle, and a small calendar. The deceased was a man of stout
build, about 5ft. 7in. high, and apparently of middle age. Mr. N. Rudduck, J. P., held a magisterial inquiry to-day, when a verdict of found drowned was returned. The deceased was interred in the Dromana Cemetery this afternoon. The clothing and other articles remain in the possession of the police awaiting identification.
(P.6, Argus, Friday, 24-7-1891.)

N.B. More bodies were being found during the 1890's depression than gold.
Constable Jones is of opinion that the body is that of George Pierce James Hume, a mining man well known in Melbourne, who was reported as missing on 5th April last. (P.3,Mornington Standard, 22-7-1897.)
Constable Jones was obviously right and Hume's funeral left from his residence in Oakleigh. He was not buried at Dromana.


Family tree circle's ngairedith has conveniently put all recorded burials into one journal. Most of the information probably resulted from the dedication displayed by Thelma Littlejohn and Bev Laurissen in transcribing inscriptions on surviving headstones.

JAMES, Charles - 1907 DROMANA.
The death occurred at Mornington on Wednesday week last of Mr. Charles James, a very old and respected resident of this district at the advanced age of 84 years. Deceased has been in indifferent health for some time past, and was living with his wife at Rosebud, prior to his demise.

Deceased, who hailed from England, has been a colonist for upwards of 60 years. After leaving his native land,
he engaged in the merchant service, and visited different ports on the American continent. After his arrival
in Victoria, he worked on a trading vessel plying between Melbourne and Geelong and subsequently came to reside on the Peninsula, where he was esteemed as an honorable man. The body was interred in the Dromana cemetery on Thursday last. He leaves behind to morn their loss a respected wife, and a family of four sons and two daughters. Mr. Welling, Presbyterian minister conducted the burial service, and the funeral arrangements
were carried out by Mr. J. D. Grover, of Mornington. (P.2, Mornington Standard, Saturday, 2-2-1907.)

The James family settled on crown allotment 19A, section B,Wannaeue ***(Melway 254 J J2) fronting Old Main Creek Rd and Barkers Rd. One of his daughters married William Hobley* and a son married Janet White, sister of Blooming Bob White (unfortunately after their son, Robert, was born and named Robert White on the birth certificate**.) Brought up as Robert James, under which name he was granted 27A Wannaeue***, he needed the certificate to marry Miss Roberts and adopted his birth name instead. To prevent confusion with his uncle,he was dubbed Bullocky Bob White.
(Sources:* FREDERICK HOBLEY WAS A PROMINENT...Frederick's father was William Henry Hobley, who was born at Schnapper Point(Mornington)on the Mornington Peninsula,Victoria,Australia in 1857. William married Elizabeth James at Main Creek on the Peninsula on 11-6-1884.By 1885 William and Elizabeth were settled at Rosebud on land for which William received the grant in 1890.

Donald James was buried at Frankston. The Whites and Hobleys were well represented.

HISTORY OF DROMANA TO PORTSEA, MORNINGTON PENINSULA, VICTORIA. SAY G'DAY TO OLD FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.

When I started researching Mornington Peninsula history in about August 2011, I did not know one descendant of pioneering families. My first contact was probably a Lacco descendant who ran a flower shop in Rosebud,who, I think, had been mentioned in Peter Wilson's ON THE ROAD TO ROSEBUD. The lady barber near Murray Anderson Rd showed me a map of early Rosebud showing where early residents lived and finally remembered that Harvey Marshall, a descendant of Captain Henry Everest Adams had given it to her; that led to a book called ADAMS' CORNER based on much information in Harvey's scrapbook.Harvey also put me in touch with Jim Dryden. After joining the Dromana Historical Society, I was given much information by Thelma Littlejohn who also put me onto Keith Holmes. I read Leila Shaw's THE WAY WE WERE and as a result became intrigued about a possible connection between Henry Gomm of Rosebud and Henry Gomm of Somerville, and winning my game of white pages lotto,got in touch with Murray Gomm whose tea chest is packed with history; THE MYSTERIOUS HENRY GOMM resulted. At about the same time Shirley Walter of Frankston responded to my DESPERATELY SEEKING request and THE FEMALE DROVER; A HISTORY OF MOOROODUC resulted,contact with other descendants of pioneers such as David Shepherd being made in the process, with my book about Joseph Porta, Victoria's first manufacturer of bellows resulting and being expanded by an article at the West Rosebud Bowling Club about Ron Porta, a team mate of Teddy Whitten at Footscray. Another who responded to my DESPERATELY SEEKING request was a Trueman descendant who led me to Raymond Guest, who led me to Ron Doig (a Rowley descendant) both of whom explained the origins of many street names on the Trueman grants at Tootgarook, and Ron led me to an extensive Trueman genealogy. Since then many more contacts have been added with Linda Berndt of Rye and Val Wilson of Mornington, and family tree circles members responding to my journals,providing incredible information. The author of BONNIE WILLIAM OF DUNDEE and Stephen Lynch of N.S.W who wrote PENINSULA PIONEERS about the White and Hillis families became contacts. The BACK TO RED HILL on 22-3-2015 was a response to a request for information about Red Hill's history after about 1940, and terrific memoirs were contributed to MEMORIES OF RED HILL POST 1940.

Phew!

AND YET, AND YET, I have made more contacts with descendants of Peninsula pioneers in the last fortnight than I did in those (nearly) four years. Importantly they cover all eras of the area's history.There are well over 2000 members in the HISTORY OF DROMANA TO PORTSEA FACEBOOK GROUP. If you're on Facebook, and either grew up in the area or are a descendant of a pioneering family, and would like to join the group, send me a private message with your email address and I'll email you the link.

CASTLEMAINE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA.

THE CARETAKERS.
Castlemaine Historical Society
www.castlemainehistoricalsociety.com/
The Castlemaine Historical Society was formed in 1965 to study, record and promote the historical heritage of Castlemaine and District. It operated for many years from temporary premises in various locations. In 1996 the Society was granted a lease to its present home in the historic Former Court House.
Meetings (with interesting guest speakers), exhibitions, a monthly newsletter, guided tours, the development, cataloguing and maintenance of an historic archive collection, indexing of records and the provision of a research service are the major activities of the members.
Archives held by the Society include early directories, voters lists, local newspaper index and some records and indexes concerning mining leases, rates, schools, churches and cemeteries.



The Society's records cover many localities including
Mt. Alexander, Forest Creek, Fryerstown, Vaughan, Campbells Creek, Barkers Creek, Chewton, Moonlight Flat, Harcourt, Muckleford, Walmer, Yapeen, Guildford

This journal and the Maldon journal were prompted by a nostalgic visit to both places a few days ago. I was involved at Castlemaine from 1965 till the end of 1967,living at the Thompson's Foundry Boarding house for the first two years while I taught at Franklinford and continuing my involvement in 1967 when I transferred to Maldon and lived three houses away from that school.

Moving back to Melbourne,I discovered that I was a different person from the teacher who had left the Big Smoke. People looked at me aghast when I said hello. It had been the norm in Castlemaine; in the process of walking one block there,it was not unusual to take half an hour and engage in three or four conversations.

Walking from the boarding house to St Mary's and later the Drill Hall to play or referee basketball was a most joyful activity but I had to allow at least half an hour to reach my destination because of the friendliness of Castlemaine residents. The beauty of the trees and wonderful historic buildings had me floating rather than walking until I reached the conversation zone. I hadn't realised until now that it was Castlemaine that gave me my love of local history. The Castlemaine residents would seem to be as lovely as ever, judging by the following incident. I can imagine what would have happened in Melbourne if I'd asked a stranger there about an old building.

EXCERPT FROM AN EMAIL.
Just for example, I wonder how many people in Castlemaine are aware of the history of THE HUB. A fellow called Neil (Heather's husband) has written the history of this building which was originally the single storeyed Council Club Hotel,with the second storey added shortly after 1900.

This information resulted from a casual question about the history of the building posed to a total stranger, the response to which showed why I have loved Castlemaine since I first met her in 1965. It is not only the historic buildings but also the friendliness and helpfulness of her people that make Castlemaine so special!

This stranger, a Castlemaine resident for 30 years and, while now living in Bendigo for more affordable accommodation, is adamant that the Maine is still the centre of her life, gave me what she knew, rang her husband, took me down Barker St a bit to an old friend, and at her suggestion took me to see Heather at the nursery next to The Hub (who told me what she knew and then rang her husband Neil to confirm this).


In researching the Maldon journal, I noticed that Dr.Preshaw was the coroner in early inquests at Maldon. His name more than any other has lingered in my memory from my reading of Castlemaine's history. His contemporaries had obviously formed the same opinion of him as I had.

SUDDEN DEATH OF DR. PRESHAW.
CORONER AT CASTLEMAINE.
Yesterday forenoon, Dr. Pounds, the district coroner, received a telegram from Mr. Colles, the sheriff of Castlemaine, announcing the sudden death of Dr. Preshaw, the coroner for the Castlemaine district, and requesting him (Dr Pounds) to attend at Castlemaine to hold an inquest on Long Poy, the Chinaman who is to be executed to-day. The news of the death of Dr Preshaw, on being circulated in Sandhurst, was received
with feelings of deep regret by many here to whom the deceased was personally known.

We extract the following notice of his death from the Castlemaine Daily News of yesterday:â
"The announcement of the very sudden death this morning of one of the oldest and most respected inhabitants of Castlemaine, namely, William Fisher Preshaw, Esq., Coroner, will be received with deep and wide-spread regret. It was only last night the deceased gentleman addressed a large audience in the Mechanics' Institution building, proposing in the most cheerful terms a vote of thanks to the ladies for the tea provided by them at the Presbyterian soiree, and appeared at the time to be in the enjoyment of full health and spirits. This morning, at half-past eight o'clock, just before entering upon the duties of the day, suddenly, and without a moment's warning, he dropped from his seat in his own house, and expired almost instantaneously. The cause
of death is stated to be disease of the heart.

The deceased was a Scotchman. He was always remarkable for his activity and earnestness in any movement for the general weal. He frequently lectured at Edinburgh and other places on behalf of charitable objects. Here, amongst us he was ever most conspicuous as a man of benevolence, and famous for his general usefulness as a prominent and leading citizen.

He came to this colony in the year 1851, and arrived on the old Forest Creek diggings in company with the Rev. Mr Lowe, who is now acting as Presbyterian pastor at Guildford. For some considerable time he held the honorary post of returning officer for the North-western Province, and it was only when he found his duties too numerous for his failing strength that he resigned it and was succeeded by Dr Mackay. On the death of Dr Howlett, some years ago, Dr Preshaw was appointed to fill his office, as coroner, which post he has held ever since. It is understood that the deceased had a life policy for some L1,000, but whether his family will derive any
substantial assistance from it is not known." (P.2,Bendigo Advertiser, 8-3-1866.)

ANOTHER CASTLEMAINE RESIDENT OF WHOM I FORMED A SIMILAR OPINION WAS GEOFF BRYCE.
Just as Castlemaine residents would be grateful that my late father in law, Jim Howarth,brought television to Castlemaine there would be many dribbling youngsters in Castlemaine who would be grateful to another S.E.C. employee for bringing basketball to the Maine, IF THEY KNEW THE STORY! The Mail had an article about a special milestone of the basketball association and I wrote to the association to tell the story. Not having received a reply, I stumbled across the Castlemaine Mail facebook page and wrote this post.

Having spent three wonderful years in Castlemaine from 1965 to 1967, I was involved in the formation of the Castlemaine Basketball Association, being one of the few who had played the game before. I sent an email to the Association a year or two ago giving some of its early history, particularly in regard to recognition of the bloke who got it all going, but I did not receive a reply.
I was doing a nostalgic google search regarding some of my mates from that era when I discovered that the founder, Geoff Bryce, was life member No. 57 of the Castlemaine Football Club. If he was made a life member of the footy club, he has to be a legend of the basketball association; I hope that is the case!
Geoff worked at the S.E.C. and despite having lost a couple of fingers, his skills were a model for all players to emulate. But above all, his drive and enthusiasm enabled the association to grow from nothing. We played our first seasons on an outdoor court at St Mary's school and later gained the use of the drill hall, a far cry from the facilities that players enjoy today.
Two of the original teams were High School and, believe it or not, Foster's United. I coached High School, which included David Broad, Robbie Ross and his brother Peter (Poss.), and also later had a female team. The experienced players carried a heavy load, having to also referee all the games.
Sadly, Jim Berry, a policeman, who was virtually Geoff's right hand man in those early days, was killed in an accident, as was Ken (Lanky) Howarth.
If it has not already been done, I hope that due recognition will be given to Geoff Bryce for the fantastic job that he did starting basketball in Castlemaine.


Castlemaine's "Premier".
Although I didn't notice it on my recent visit, this is another piece of Castlemaine's history etched in my memory. I can't remember whether the monument includes a statue but I do remember the pride that Castlemaine felt in one its citizens becoming Premier.

FOOTY.
John Roth,a most dependable full back was one of my favourite Castlemaine players.He was a teacher (a trade teacher at Castlemaine Tech if I remember correctly.) Mal Stevens was retired but he was a legend in the mind of those who knew. Mal was a premiership coach in the Maryborough-Castlemaine Football League, as, to my surprise,was Rex Beach, my cricket captain at Maldon in 1967.

Bendigo Football League
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bendigo Football League is an Australian rules football competition based in the Bendigo region of Victoria, Australia.

A full grandstand at the Queen Elizabeth Oval for the 2007 Grand Final of the Bendigo Football League.
Formed in 1880, it is one of the oldest football leagues in Australia, and among its members are some of the oldest football clubs in Australia, including the Castlemaine Football Club, acknowledged as the second oldest football club in Australia and one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

I'd boundary umpired on the V.F.L.Reserve Grade list while at Teachers' College but when temporarily posted to the Ballan area, joined the Essendon District F.L. umpires under the legendary Puffer Sawyer as a field umpire and in one year boundary umpired the A Grade and B Grade Grand Finals on successive days. I was not the only new recruit from the bush,being joined by many Ballarat umpires who had gone on strike. In 1965, I was posted to Franklinford and joined the Bendigo umpires as a boundary umpire under a strange system. Each club supplied two boundaries who ran in only home games; this was probably to save travelling expenses because the league stretched north from Kyneton to Rochester and Echuca.

I did most of my training at Camp Reserve and soon got to know most of the players. Killer Kaine,ex-Hawthorn hard man was the coach in 1965. Kevin Delmenico dominated and was soon off to Footscray. It is most likely that
Kevin had a connection to his Maine team mate, Ian Sartori, Ronald Dale Barrassi,Jack Gervasoni (Fitzroy) and Tony Polinelli (Geelong.) The Swiss Italian pioneers had a strong representation at Hepburn, spreading to Yandoit and Guildford later. See:
Swiss Italians of Australia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss_Italians_of_Australia

Tony Polinelli and Jack Gervasoni played for Ballarat League clubs before being recruited to the V.F.L. but certainly had a connection to Castlemaine. The late Charlie Polinelli, a well-regarded Castlemaine resident for many decades, stalwart of the Anglers Club and war historian, was descended,if I remember correctly, from both families- residents of Yandoit- and his sister married Bruce Warren, from the Harcourt orchardist family; they also lived in Castlemaine,in Myring St and then near the STEEP Mt Alexander Golf Course,for years before moving to the peninsula after Bruce retired from a senior position at the Harris Bacon Factory. Their son,Peter,is my brother in law, having married Val's sister,Roslyn Howarth.

In 1966,Derek Cowen took over as coach and Robbie Thompson was a young star. Derek's son is the principal at Warrnambool Primary School.
Derek Cowen (born 20 April 1939) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with North Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

A ruckman, Cowen was recruited to North Melbourne from West Coburg. He played 17 of a possible 18 games in 1960 but struggled with injuries over the next few seasons.[2]

In 1963 he joined Irymple for a two year stint as playing coach. Cowen then coached Castlemaine to the 1966 Bendigo Football League premiership.[3] He also won back to back Michelsen Medals while at Castlemaine, which are awarded to the league's Best and Fairest player, in 1966 and 1967.

Both David Broad and Robbie Ross were young stars. Both were defenders but both had their work cut out for them when opposing Kyneton's Tarz Plowman. Although built like a brick OUThouse, he could lead like Tony Lockett despite looking like North Melbourne's Galloping Gasometer,Mick Nolan. He'd pick up a too-short pass and dish it off by hand to either side like lightning. And when the ball came high to a contest,poor Robbie Ross leapt so high he needed oxygen but because Tarz was so large from bow to stern, Robbie's fist had no hope of reaching the footy to spoil.

The Castlemaine players were my mates and I didn't want to report them. To be fair that meant I didn't want to report their opponents either. Thus I learnt to read the warning signs and warn players that they were being watched when I observed those signs. My motto was "Nip it in the bud." Steve Parsons, an enthusiastic participant in the Windy Hill BLOODBATH while playing for Richmond, was trundling the ball near the left half back boundary in the V.F.A. second division grand final when it finally went out. Instructed to throw it in, I instead placed my body in front of Steve and told him to cool down; he had a murderous look in his eye. The replay showed a round-arm whack to his guts that I had not seen because my focus was on the ball and the line.My friendship with the Castlemaine players had prevented Steven from being reported!

Castlemaine Football Club - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlemaine_Football_Club

History
The Castlemaine Football Club was formed on June 15, 1859 at the Supreme Court Hotel and chaired by T Butterworth.[1] Castlemaine played its first match on June 22, 1859 on the Cricket Ground Barkers Creek.[2]

The club was formed in an era before codified rules organised competition, but according to some sources, including Graeme Atkinson, "football" was popular in the goldfields region. Records for the foundation date was discovered in 2007 which rewrote history as many had previously believed the Geelong Football Club to be formed earlier.[3]

Without a league to participate in, the club was an irregular competitor during its first decade.

The original uniform was a white cap with royal-blue Maltese cross.

In 1925, Castlemaine joined the Bendigo Football League.

***Wally?-Rings a bell!
2006 - Wally Culpitt, a legend at Hawthorn and Castlemaine
AS a small boy in the Melbourne inner suburb of Richmond, Wally Culpitt was always getting into trouble from his mother for forgetting to run errands after school.
The reason he used to forget the messages â he could not pass cricket or football practice sessions until they finished.
His interest paid dividends. When he got beyond the running messages stage he qualified for the leading teams in both cricket and football with Hawthorn.
Culpitt became affectionately known as âSandgroperâ because he had been born in WA, but at the age of three moved to Victoria with his parents.
He was born at Mt. Hawthorn a few miles north of Perth, so it seemed a natural progression Wally would star with Hawthorn in his later years in Melbourne.
He first came into his own at school when he captained the Richmond State School football and cricket teams at the age of 10.

^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^

NO one asked him to play with Hawthorn â¦. he just attached himself to the club.
He played football with the East Hawthorn Collegians in Melbourneâs Eastern Suburban League, but cartilage problems even at this early career stage curtailed his enthusiasm for the bigger matches.
But it was when Carlton began to show interest in Culpitt that Hawthorn officials decided it was time to act.
That led to Culpittâs nine years of VFL football for the Hawks for a total of 125 games, interrupted by two years of duty with a RAAF Catalina squadron in Darwin.
The RAAF duty fell during the years of World War 2.
Culpitt was one of those most sought after footballers who can play in a number of positions on the field. He starred at full-back, but was equally at home at full-forward.
Even though he stood at just 178 cm (5 ft 10 ins) Culpitt was a fine key position player.
In his debut game as a full-forward against Melbourne the âSandgroperâ booted 9.8 and was chaired off the ground as if he had captained a premiership side.
That was the year (1943) Hawthorn almost made the final four. They had only to beat North Melbourne in the concluding home-andâaway game, but lost by a point to finish fifth: 7.16 (58) to Northâs 8.11 (59).
The Hawks had gone into the match without Culpitt who had been posted to West Australia with his squadron the night before the key match.
After the war he returned to Hawthorn and made the Victorian side seven times after becoming widely acclaimed as a class full-back. He was in the 1947 VFL side which won the national carnival in Hobart.
Culpitt played alongside such Australian Rules legends as Lou Richards, Alan Ruthven, Phonse Kyne, Bert Deacon, Fred Flanagan, Les Foote and Max Oppy.
Kevin Curran, later an opposition coach for Culpitt in the Bendigo Football League, was also a member of the famous 1947 VFL side.
Minor injuries towards the end of the 1947 season probably cost Culpitt that seasonâs Brownlow Medal. He had to leave the ground on numerous occasions and finished equal third to Carltonâs Bert Deacon in the final Brownlow count.
He always said that he was more than satisfied, however, when he took out Hawthornâs best and fairest award and finished in the top six on the VFL goalkicking table.
One of Culpittâs greatest sporting moments was representing Hawthorn-East Melbourne against South Melbourne. The Aussie Test team had just returned from its 1948 all-conquering tour of England and he was pitted against Australian spinner Ian Johnson.
Wally sent four of Johnsonâs deliveries into the nearby bowling greens for four sixes. After the first six landed in the middle of the green the bowlers knocked off to watch.
One of them caught the third Johnson delivery to disappear over the fence. It was quoted in the Melbourne press Johnson didnât feel so bad when in the very next match Culpitt showed the same disrespect for Richmond and Australian leg spinner Doug Ring.
Culpitt dispatched Ring for five sixes in Hawthorn-East Melbourneâs next outing.
In 1948 Culpitt became the highest ever paid football coach to accept a post in the country when he went to Wimmera League club Minyip for £20 a week, a fortune in post World War 2 Victoria.
It was a sound investment by Minyip. The club made the finals during the two seasons he coached them and broke two Wimmera League records.
Minyip beat Stawell at Stawell for the first time in 28 years and also beat every other club in the competition at least once â a feat previously unheard of at Minyip.
In 1950 aged 31, Culpitt arrived in the Bendigo Football League as coach of Kyneton. The move from Minyip, where he was accorded a civic farewell, was made because of the higher educational facilities available to Culpittâs family.
His time at the Kyneton Tigers was not a happy one and in 1952 he moved on to Castlemaine. This was a master stroke by Culpitt as he captain-coached the BFLâs Magpies to their first flag in 26 years.
Castlemaine defeated Sandhurst, led by his old Hawthorn teammate Kevin Curran, in a great grand final by 29 points: 15.9 (99) to 9.16 (70).
A highlight of the premiership celebrations was the team parade through Castlemaineâs main streets on the Saturday night. A circus was in town so players travelled down the streets atop elephants.
Culpitt was retained as captain-coach in 1953, but before the start of the season fell eight metres from a telegraph pole in a workplace accident.
His injuries meant he played only a handful of matches in 1953.


CRICKET.

Charlie Oliver was my hero. I couldn't wait to see the Sport reports in the Mail to see what miracles he had performed for Newstead in footy and North Castlemaine in cricket.The sad thing is that I never saw him play either sport and I was devastated to read that he had lost an arm.It was no surprise at all that Carlton Football Club fought tooth and nail to keep his son Stephen in the Big Smoke but I'd never heard of Stephen's young brother Ben. (See below.)

Retiring hurt, but not bitter - Sydney Morning Herald
www.smh.com.au/.../cricket/retiring-hurt-but-not-bitter-20111223-1p8t4.ht...

REX BEACH and DAVID BROAD. I wonder if Rex was like the mature, serious David Broad at the age of 17. David was one of the High School basketball team that competed bravely against teams composed mainly of grown men. One night I had been rostered to umpire an early game and having played our game,David and I were walking past the town hall when he asked me to attend a meeting with him,the Castlemaine Development Committee. I did but it was another six or so years before I reached David's level of commitment to the community (at Tullamarine.)

Rex was a rather dour shire secretary based at Maldon,probably of the same vintage as Guildford's Max Glen,and a very good captain of the Maldon Cricket Club. I'd never known of his involvement with footy until I googled Rex Beach,Maldon.

ABOUT US.
Maldon Museum and Archives holds a wonderful collection of artefacts and historical information from the Maldon District
The Maldon âcollectionâ, comprising old objects and records from the local area, was initially brought together by the Maldon Progress Association in 1966. The collection is now under the custodianship of Maldon Museum & Archives Association Inc., a member-based volunteer-run organisation established in 1992 to bring together the previously separate museum and family history groups.

The collection continues to grow, and our members and volunteers work hard to research, document, preserve and present it in a way which helps visitors to understand the past, reflect on the present and look to the future. Our Association is very grateful for the commitment and huge contribution of time and expertise given by our many volunteers and supporters, and for the financial assistance received for special projects from various funding bodies over the years.

The district settlements covered by the collection include Baringhup, Bradford, Eaglehawk, Gowar, Maldon, Muckleford, Neereman, Nuggetty, Pollard, Ravenswood South, Sandy Creek, Shelbourne, Tarrangower, Walmer, Woodbrook (Chinamanâs Creek), and parts of Eddington and Welshmanâs Reef. Also from 1947 to 1956, the construction settlement for Cairn Curran Reservoir was located at Baringhup.


THE TOWN AND AREA.
MALDON was most likely named after Maldon in Essex,the name having been in existence since Saxon times. The town was declared and named in early 1854.

GOVERNMENT GAZETTE.
A new Township is declared at Mount Tarrangower, situate 11 miles N. W. of Castlemaine,to be called Maldon, which will be a place for holding Courts of Petty Sessions.
Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer (Vic. : 1851 - 1856) Monday 13 February 1854 p 4 Article

A sales notice in mid 1854 alerted me to the fact that land in the parish of Maldon was to be offered for sale and in order to find out about land divisions rather than church parishes, I knew I needed to use County in the trove search term. Also aware that Maldon would be well beyond the county of Bourke, I tried PARISH OF MALDON,COUNTY and it worked. There is a township and a parish map. Have a look!

Maldon is a town in Victoria, Australia, in the Shire of Mount Alexander local government area. It has been designated "Australia's first notable town" and is notable for its 19th-century appearance, maintained since gold-rush days. At the 2006 census, Maldon had a population of 1,601.[1]


History
The district where Maldon now stands was first discovered by white Europeans in 1836, during Major Thomas Mitchell's famous Victorian expedition. It was settled soon afterwards by pastoralists, and two sheep runs were established in the area, at the foot of Mount Tarrangower. In December 1853, gold was discovered at Cairn Curran (the name given to one of the sheep runs), and Maldon became a part of the Victorian Gold Rush.

The goldfield, which was named "Tarrangower Fields" after Mount Tarrangower, immediately attracted an immense number of men eager to make their fortunes at the diggings. Just one month after gold was first discovered, the Chief Commissioner for Goldfields reported 3000 miners had arrived at the diggings. A month after that, a journalist for The Argus reported that the road from Castlemaine to Maldon was lined with the shops of people hoping to make a living of their own from the miners:

The road follows up the course of Long Gully, where the diggings were first opened, for a couple of miles, and is lined on either side by an almost continuous row of stores, refreshment tents, eating houses, doctors' tents, apothecaries' shops, and, in fact, shops of every description.[2]

The same report noted that the goldfield's population had already grown to 18,000, though only about 1000 had taken out mining licences.


Maldon in 1904, seen from the south-west
In 1856 the Victorian government arranged for the settlement to become a town, which was named Maldon. The post office had opened on 14 March 1854.[3]

In 1861, a government census declared the town's population to be 3341, servicing an additional 5,000-6,000 miners at the diggings. At that time it was the eighth-largest town in Victoria, and remained so for the next decade. However, as miners were forced to dig deeper to obtain usable specimens, or as mines ran dry completely, the population began to decline. By 1891, Maldon was reduced to 1,600 inhabitants. Mining of small claims continued through the 20th century, together with sluicing of gullies and tailings. In the 1980s, several new ventures commenced, including an open cut at Union Hill.

Maldon proved to be one of Victoria's richest quartz-mining centres, though with poorer alluvial results than others such as Castlemaine or Ballarat. Quartz mining extended southward through Sandy Creek to Newstead, along to Mia Mia and Muckleford, eastward to Fentimenâs and Smithâs Reefs, and even to the apex of Mount Tarrangower. In all, over seventy reefs were proven to contain gold deposits. Maldon was undoubtedly a poor manâs diggings, with many excellent yields from very small claims.

The Maldon Vintage Machinery Museum houses stationary engines, farming implements, mining exhibits, fire pumps, and objects with links to Thompsons Foundry, Castlemaine.[4]

Modern times

Historic streetscape at Maldon
Today, Maldon's population is more or less stable at around 1,000 people. The town has changed very little since mining operations ceased, though a former bank at the junction of High and Main Streets has been supplanted by a service station. The town was declared a "notable town" in 1966 by the National Trust of Victoria, who explained that:

The township displays overall historical and architectural importance, particularly in its gold town buildings. The significance lies in the variety of building styles, and the area of mining is of interest with one mine still open to the public. Maldon boasts that it is largely unchanged since the 1850s, and has attracted considerable interest from tourists for its 19th-century atmosphere.

Maldon is now sustained by its appeal as a retreat and retirement venue for artists and writers, as well as tourist trade. The town holds several annual fairs, including a Winter Fair, Easter Fair, Art Show, and Folk Festival. Notable landmarks include Beehive Chimney, Mount Tarrangower and fire tower, Lake Cairn Curran, and the railway station. Maldon has its own newspaper, the Tarrangower Times, which was first published in 1858 and is the oldest continuously published newspaper in Victoria. The Maldon Museum and Archives Association operates a district museum and family-history centre in the former Maldon Shire Hall, and a vintage machinery museum.

The minimum-security female prison HM Prison Tarrengower is located to the near north of the township in the locality of Nuggety.

Sport

The memorial park at Maldon
The town has an Australian Rules football team competing in the Maryborough Castlemaine District Football League.

Golfers play at the course of the Maldon Golf Club on Golf Links Road.[5]

Events
The town has an annual Easter Fair which includes events such as billy-cart racing, dancing in the street, the Great Aussie Scone Bake, a cemetery walk and the lighting of the Mount Tarrangower tower.[6] The Maldon Folk Festival has been held annually since 1974. (31 October to 3 November in 2008).[7]

In popular culture
Much of the 2007 film Romulus, My Father, set in the 1950s and starring Eric Bana, was shot on location in Maldon.[8] Romulus, My Father went on to win the Australian Film Institute award for Best Film.

Henry Handel Richardson in Maldon Book Sales

Henry Handel Richardson in Maldon. Henry Handel Richardson in Maldon is an illustrated booklet that details the young Richardson's life in the Victorian gold mining town. She arrived in Maldon as Ethel Richardson in 1880 at the age of 10 with her mother and sister, after the traumatic decline and death of their husband and father, Walter Lindesay Richardson. HHR later wrote that Maldon nourished the imagination of the future writer.

The booklet was winner of the 'Best Walk/Tour' prize in the Victorian Community History Awards 2011, sponsored by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria and the Public Records Office of Victoria.

The authors, Peter Cuffley, Helen McBurney, Janey Runci and Geoff Palmer, assisted by the Maldon community, have produced a well-illustrated and carefully researched booklet that contains three walks; the first, which has a clear map, describes 16 buildings that would have been familiar to the Richardsons; the second, focuses on significant cemetery graves from the 1880's period; and the last, records places fictionalised in Richardson's The Getting of Wisdom.

SOME HISTORIC BUILDINGS.
This amazing article supplies terrific information that I may never have found through trove. The most staggering fact is that the township of Maldon is not built on the township of Maldon site declared in 1854 which explains the absence of the grid layout so typical of declared townships. It also directs readers on a guided walk around the historic town. Some information (such as Maldon's version of Sovereign Hill and the hill climb)may be out of date.

Maldon
Extraordinary historic town which looks as though time has stood still.
In 1966 Maldon became the first Victorian town to be classified by the National Trust. This honour reflects an appreciation of its remarkably well-preserved historic streetscape with its European trees, wide verandahs, flagstone paving, old-fashioned shop fronts, quaint cottages with attractive gardens, and its many stone buildings erected in the heyday of the goldmining era.

The town's genuinely historic feel is quite overwhelming, arising out of its architectural harmony, an extensive restoration program that has avoided tackiness and frippery, strict and divisive controls on building alterations, an absence of grandiosity and the tendency of the shops to reinforce the antiquity of their exteriors with interiors that also bespeak a lost time.

For these reasons Maldon has become a very popular tourist destination, particularly during the Easter Fair. Hence, many of the buildings have been converted into specialist stores designed to appeal to the visitor. Some locals scornfully regard the tourist orientation as the 'commodification of heritage'. At any rate, Maldon is located 138 km north-west of Melbourne via A HREF="VICCastlemaine.shtml">Castlemaine, which is 19 km to the south-east, and 359 metres above sea-level.

Prior to the arrival of the first squatters in 1840 the area was occupied by the Wemba-Wemba people and an Aboriginal station operated near Mt Tarrangower from 1841-1849. However, the town really began when John Mechosk, a German prospector who had already struck gold at A HREF="VICDunolly.shtml">Dunolly, A HREF="VICMaryborough.shtml">Maryborough and Kingower, discovered gold at the foot of Mt Tarrangower in 1853, thereby initiating a rush of some 20 000 diggers who initially devoted themselves to alluvial mining. By the end of 1854 the tide had receded to some 2000 prospectors and a township of sorts had developed around a narrow road.

The settlement was initially known as Tarrangower. A townsite was surveyed in 1854 but the location was rejected and ignored by locals. Consequently the de facto township established by the diggers was surveyed in 1856 (which explains the irregular street patterns which evolved organically as routes between the diggings). It was renamed after Maldon in Essex, England.

In 1856 Nuggetty Reef was uncovered to the north of town and companies entered the picture, supplying the capital to unearth the gold-bearing quartz reefs which proved to be among the richest in the country. In the 1860s Maldon rivalled Bendigo for returns but, by 1870, the gold had begun to dwindle. In the subsequent years mines began to close and the population declined. The last operating mine was the North British which closed up shop in 1926, although the Union Mine was reopened in 1987 to reprocess the tailings.

It is this absence of growth after the late 19th century which has facilitated the preservation of the town's historic features.

Noted novelist Henry Handel Richardson (nee Ethel Richardson) spent a portion of her childhood at Maldon.

The Maldon Camp Draft is held in February and the Maldon Easter Fair in April. In late October and early November, a folk festival is held at Butts Reserve (along the road to Mt Tarrangower) and the Mt Tarrangower Hillclimb (a motor sport event) is held in late October. The Spring Festival occurs in August.

Things to see:
Tourist Information
The Maldon Visitor Centre is located adjacent the shire offices in High St. It is open weekdays from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m daily. Be sure to pick up the brochures which outline walks of the town, tel: (03) 5475 2569.

Historic Buildings - High St (South)
The information centre has two free pamphlets identifying the town's historic buildings. One covers the main commercial district (Main and High Sts) and the other roams more widely.

Start at the southern end of town where the Castlemaine Rd meets up with High St. Head north along High St. The second house on the left is Lauriston House which was built in 1866 for local mining magnate R.D. Oswald. With its Malmsbury bluestone and elaborate timber verandah fretwork it was regarded as the town's finest building at the time of its construction.

At High and Fountain is the Kangaroo Hotel (1866) which, with its timber lattice and iron lacework, was once a staging post for Cobb & Co coaches. Head south along High St passing, on the right-hand side of the road, the former Commercial Hotel (1867), Argyle House (1866), the former Carriers Arms Hotel (1857), the former Bank of NSW (1858), the enormous Robert Cox Motors (built c.1858 as a four-shop complex), the motorcyclists' (formerly the Freemasons' Hall built c.1863 with a 1908 facade) and a former flour mill (1873).

Cross the road and return northwards to the former Royal Hotel which was built as a concert hall in 1857 and extended in 1862 when it became the hotel. In 1975 it was used as a setting in the film 'Break of Day'. All that was required was to cover the streets in dirt and Maldon furnished a plausible 19th-century setting. It is now a restaurant.

Historic Buildings - Main St
The Grand Hotel (1888) marks the start of Main St. It features some elaborate arches, pilasters and balusters. To the right, as you head north-east, are the former McFarlane's Drapery, built c.1867 (the face of McFarlane's brother, the Secretary to the Treasury, once graced the Australian pound note), Cookies Collections (built c.1870 as a hairdressing salon), Goldsmith's Building (1897), Berryman's Bootshop (1895) on the site of an 1857 bowling alley, the former Albion Hotel (1866), Dabb's Produce Store (c.1870), a former butcher's (c.1858), Swann's Buildings (1866) and the grand two-storey facade of the Maldon Hotel (1909) with its delicate verandah lacework and slender cast-iron posts. The hotel extension was originally the stables. Cornflowers was built c.1860 and was later used as the Bank of Victoria. Wearne's Building (c.1895) is currently a residence (note the old kerosene sign on the wall) and Franklin's Building (c.1870), at Main and Phoenix, started as a shoe warehouse.

Diagonally opposite, at Main and Templeton, is a fruit shop which dates from 1866 (note the fence and the sign). Just along Templeton St is Maldon Old Grain Store Antique Market (1864).

Return to Main St and head south, passing, on the right, the quaint old bakery (c.1895) with an 1854 wood-fired Scotch oven, Calder's (1866), originally an ironmongery, Maldon Pharmacy (c.1860), Wade's Building (c.1880), the former Dabb & Co. Store with its ornate door (built in 1859 and now the Maldon Supermarket), and the service station, which is housed in an old ironmongery and a former smithy (both 1858).

Historic Buildings - High St (Middle)
Turn the corner, heading north back along High St. On the right-hand side are Wade's House (c.1865), now a residence, and, at the Francis St corner, Calder House (c.1885), a distinguished residence which is now a restaurant and bed-and-breakfast.

On the other side of High St is the old post office (1870) which, from 1880-86, was the childhood home of noted Australian novelist Henry Handel Richardson. Her mother was the postmistress. Richardson's autobiography Myself When Young (1950) recounts her time in Maldon with great affection.

Walk along Francis St. To the left are the croquet club (1890) and the museum.

Museum and Courthouse
The Maldon Historical Museum, at the corner of High St and Fountain St, has mining photographs and equipment, domestic memorabilia, and archives. It is located in a mellow-toned brick building erected in 1858 as a Market Place. However, this venture was unsuccessful and it became the shire offices in 1865. The hammerbeam arches were added to correct the buckling walls in 1871. It is open weekdays from 1.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. and from 1.30 p.m. to 5.00 p.m on public holidays and weekends.

Behind the museum is the old fire station (1870) and on the other side of the adjacent football oval is the former courthouse (1861).

Historical Buildings - High St (North)
Return to the post office and head north-west along High St. To the left is Robinson's House, a Gothic Revival structure dating from 1866. Over the road, at 50 High St, is the unusual brickwork of Thomas Vivian's House (1862). It sits in the shadow of Holy Trinity Anglican Church (1862-89), a Gothic Revival ragstone structure with exceptional stained-glass windows and an intricately trussed roof. At 54 High St is Tressider's Cottage, a miner's cottage dating back to 1859 which is now a bed-and-breakfast. A little further along is Dr Lisle's House (1857) and over the road is the primary school (1874).

At Hospital and High is Dr Hardy's House (1857) and adjacent is School Cottage (1860) originally a school. Further along High St and on the other side of the road is the arched entranceway of one of the town's grander homes, 'Glendonald', built in 1870 as 'Ethandune'. Continue north past a range of late 19th-century residences to the Adair St corner where there is an Italianate villa with impressive plasterwork.

Historical Buildings - Adair St
At Adair and Chapel is the hospital, built as a one-storey Classical Revival structure in 1860. Patients were allegedly given subterranean water from Eaglehawk Mine as it was believed to have medicinal properties. Just along Chapel St is St Brigid's Catholic Church (1891).

Return to the High and Adair St intersection. On the north-eastern corner is Rule's House (1897). The brick-and-timber house adjacent dates from 1875. At the south-western corner of Adair and Templeton is a corner store and residence (1880s).

Historical Buildings - Templeton St
Heading south on Templeton, to the right, are Brook's residence (1890) with its fine iron lacework, and a typical timber house from the 1880s. Over the road is Chapman's House which was started at some point prior to 1863. The large house on its southern side dates from 1870.

At the south-eastern corner of Templeton and Camp Sts is the former Holy Trinity Parsonage (1863). The original church was to the rear. Just to the south is Lovell's Cottage, a timber house dating from 1860.

Historical Buildings - Church St
Walk along Camp St to the Church St corner where you will find one of the town's highlights - the former Anglican Penny School where the children once paid a penny a day for their schooling. It was largely rebuilt in 1862 after a storm destroyed part of the original 1856 structure, although the tower and entrance porches remain from that earlier day. The architecture is unusual and eclectic. Over the road is the Welsh Congregational Church (1863 with a transept added in 1901).

Walk south along Church St past the Presbyterian manse (1859) to the Presbyterian Church (1905) at the Edward St corner.

Historical Buildings Concluded
At the north-eastern corner of Edwards and Templeton is the Baptist Church (1896). On the south-eastern corner is Brook's Store (1864).

Across Templeton St, at the Francis St corner, is the former Welsh Baptist Church (1865). On its western side is the former temperance hall (1873) and behind that is one of the town's oldest surviving structures, the former Edwards crushing plant.

Maldon Historic Reserve
The Maldon Historic Reserve constitutes about 2500 ha of public land and forest around Maldon. It was created to preserve the area's goldmining relics, including old shafts, abandoned equipment, mullock and tailing heaps, tunnels, dams, tracks, kilns, cyanide vats, stone walls and the goldmining dredge beside the road to Bendigo, 3 km from the town centre. Some are outlined below.

The box and ironbark forests are regrowth projects as the original woodlands were destroyed by goldmining and farming activities. Bushwalking, forest drives, wildflowers and fossicking can all be enjoyed at Smith's Reef which is signposted to the left off the Castlemaine Rd about 4 km from town.

Beehive Chimney
The 30-metre Beehive Chimney (1862) is located just off the road, near the intersection of Main St and Church St. The Beehive reef was discovered by Cornish miners who named it after a swarm of bees which were, at that moment, settled on a nearby post. There is a picnic area adjacent.

North British Mine
Turn off High St into Parkins Reef Rd which heads south-west. 2 km from town, to the left, is the site where the North British Mine operated until 1926. A walking track leads past numerous ruins including two large stamper batteries and some kilns. There is much to see but some remnants may go unnoticed or unappreciated by the untrained eye so be sure to obtain a guiding pamphlet from the information centre. The forest just to the south contains some old puddling machines and mining holes from the gold days.

Carman's Tunnel
Just past the North British, to the right, is the access point to Carman's Tunnel, a 570-metre goldmining tunnel which was excavated, largely with pneumatic drills, between 1882 and 1884. Despite the extraordinary effort, returns were minimal. For a small fee you can go on an informative, candle-lit, half-hour walk through the dry, clean, spacious, level and easily accessible tunnel from 1.30 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. on weekends, public and school holidays, tel: (03) 5475 2667.

Steam Railway
The town's handsome railway station in Hornsby St was built in 1884 . Two steam trains serve as a static display while another two operational steam trains are used for 45-minute return trips into the Muckleford Forest (a diesel locomotive is used on days of total fire ban). Trips are made on Sundays and public holidays at 11.30 a..m, 1.00 p.m. and 2.30 p.m. and on Wednesdays and Saturdays in school holidays (same departure times). Trains also run every day from December 27 to mid-Januray and from Good Friday to Easter Monday. Ring (03) 5475 2966 for recorded information concerning train times, or call the general office on (03) 54751451.

Nuggetty Ranges Winery
4 km north-west of Maldon, on the Maldon-Sherbourne Road (also known as Bradford Road), is Nuggetty Ranges Winery. Established in 1994, it is a small family-owned winery which produces cabernet sauvignon, semillon and an award-winning shiraz. The cellar door is open daily from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m., tel: (03) 5475 1347.

Yabby Farm
Next to the Nuggetty Ranges Winery, in the Maldon-Sherbourne Road, is the Maldon Yabby and Fish Farm which offers a personalised farm tour, yabbie catching, barbecue and picnic facilities and sales. It is only open to the public in the Christmas school holidays, tel: (03) 5475 1086.

Anzac Hill
One of the best vantage points in town is from atop Anzac Hill which furnishes views of the Grampians, Mount Franklin and Mount Macedon in the distance. You can walk or drive to the summit along Fountain St although it is unsealed, difficult and much further (2.4 km up a steep hill) than most guides will admit. At the top there is a picnic area and a walking track which heads west along a 4WD track to the summit of Mt Tarrangower. If you're looking for an easier option there is an excellent view of the town from the Turkish cannon which is less than a third of the way up the hill.

Mt Tarrangower and Butts Reserve
Mount Tarrangower (570m) is located 2 km west of town via Franklin St. This was the centre of the gold diggings in the 1850s and it was here that the richest quartz reefs were located. Today there is a very good lookout tower (which is illuminated at Eastertime), fine picnic areas and walking tracks to Anzac Hill and Fountain St.

Just off Franklin St, at the base of the hill, is Butts Reserve where there are picnic and barbecue facilities and where a folk festival is held each year in early November. In late October it is also the starting point for a motor race to the top of the hill.

Reservoir
Cairn Curran Reservoir, 12 km south-west via Newstead Rd, is a large and scenic lake which offers good opportunities for water sports, swimming, picnicking and relaxing. There is a sailing club near the spillway.

Porcupine Township
Porcupine Township is an award-winning recreation of an early 1850s gold town located in rugged bushland on the site of the original Porcupine diggings where the first gold discovery between Castlemaine and Bendigo was made. The buildings associated with the original settlement have entirely disappeared but slab, shingle and mud-brick buildings have been relocated from other goldfields and derelict townsites. These include a two-storey barn, an hotel, an undertaker's, miner's huts, a blacksmith's, a general store, a carriage repository, a doctor's surgery and a bowling alley.

You can go for a ride in a Gold Escort, pan for gold, feed the emus or take a trip on the Little Toot train which does a circuit through the original diggings. There are actors in period costume, a resident artisan working in pioneer style, a licensed restaurant, a motel and self-contained cottages. The 'village' is located 2.5 km from the post office at the corner of the Maldon-Bendigo Rd and Allans Rd, tel: (03) 5475 1000.

Cemetery
Maldon's pioneer cemetery (1857) contains the graves of over 200 Chinese goldminers from the early days of the town. There is a Chinese oven where incense was burned for ceremonial purposes, Chinese headstones, a caretaker's cottage (1866) and a rotunda (1900). Jonquils grow in profusion in springtime. To get there follow the Maryborough Rd for 3.8 km then turn right at the women's prison.

THE BOILER EXPLOSION AT MALDON. ... (1843-1914), Joseph Thomas Bawden; Text last corrected on 17 December 2013 by janilye ... MALDON. The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) Wednesday 23 June 1897 p 9 Article: Abstract: ..

SOME PERSONAL MEMORIES OF MALDON.
In 1967, I ran from Landseer St, Castlemaine to Maldon to attend the Easter Show while my future wife's family drove and discovered on a very hot day that the shade provided by roadside trees was not as great as I had imagined. At the Show a little girl's eye was pecked out by a magpie.

Before teaching at Maldon in 1967, I had taught at Franklinford,Phillip Whitlock being one of my pupils. His dad moved the family from Mt Franklin to Maldon during that time and I taught Phillip again at Maldon.

Steven Burchell was a great kid and I believe he became a talented stilt walker. The Burchell family had been in the area for a considerable time,apparently coming from near Talbot by 1900.
Private W. Burchell who has been home on final leave prior to going to the front, was entertained by the residents of Baringhup, and Tarrangower and presented with a pocket wallet and wristlet watch, for which
he suitably returned thanks. (Mount. Alexander Mail (Vic. : 1914 - 1917) Monday 1 November 1915 p 4 Article)

Steven's father seems to have been Reg and his mother Joyce,a Castlemaine girl.

A MINI CHRONOLOGY.
Many references are to mines, gold escorts etc.which will not be included here. My emphasis here is on early residents (whose family folklore makes vague reference to "the diggings"*) and noteworthy events.
*As the surnames list has limited capacity,priority will be given to surnames of those pioneers whose descendants are unlikely to know of a connection with Maldon. Those descendants who know of a connection are likely to read the journal anyway.



GENERAL POST OFFICE -The following notice was issued at the Post office yesterday -Maldon (Tarrengower) -On and after the 6th inst., and till further notice a weekly mail for Maldon will be closed at this office every Thursday at 5 :30 p.m. , and the return mail will arrive every Saturday, at 12 noon -Fryers Creek etc.
(P.5,Argus, 8-4-1854.)
N.B. Any reference to Maldon before 1854 will be to Maldon in Essex, Maldon's Punt (apparently on the Murray near Albury, hence Tarrengower in brackets in the notice to prevent confusion) or the Maldon Plate in horse racing. Fryers Creek was sometimes rendered as Friars Creek in early days by those not aware of Mr Fryer.


DEPUTY REGISTRARS. - The Government Gazette announces the appointment of the following gentlemen to the office of Deputy-Registrar:-Mr George L. Hutchinson, at Hepburn; .....Henry Nathaniel L. S. Kentish, at Maldon ; etc.

There must have been some desperation because the advertisement was inserted numerous times in different forms. This must have been another of Mrs John Howard's brothers.

INSOLVENTS.William Henry Ritchie, storekeeper, of Maldon, near Castlemaine. The causes of insolvency are stated as depreciation in value of goods and pressure of creditors. Amount of debts, £2099/6/1 ; assets £932/9/8.
(P.5,The Age,5-12-1854.)

Two peninsula pioneers held the office of postmaster at Melbourne,Ben Baxter before he established Carrup Carrup (at Baxter) and Alexander McCrae after an unsuccessful short tenure on the Arthurs Seat Run. It was the latter who received a letter signed by numerous residents of Maryborough griping about their poor service. The present Maryborough residents could hardly complain about their absolutely beautiful railway station.

......4. That the inhabitants of Maldon and of Avoca (at neither of which places does the population, during the summer season, approximate within about one-fifth of that of Maryborough)enjoy the advantage of postal communication with Melbourne and Castlemaine twice a week.etc. (P.5.Argus, 21-12-1854.)


GOLF COURSES.
I only played at Maldon once, with my wife's uncle Roy Portwine of Castlemaine. Roy hit a beautiful drive right down the middle of a fairway and despite a lengthy search, we never found the ball. Maldon,like Castlemaine,had its fair share of magpies* and its likely that one rescued its "baby" or the ball went down a burrow.
*At Castlemaine's course some very clever maggies had set up home in some gums overlooking about three fairways and would swoop you just as you commenced your downswing. And they knew when you were foxing! When running around Maldon's footy ground I did plenty of backwards running although I was playing footy,not umpiring, at the time. It was essential to keep an eye on the maggies nesting in the south west forward pocket. The little girl who had her eye pecked at the Easter Show at the ground was indelibly etched into my memory.

VICTORIA AND ITS METROPOLIS : PIONEERS OF THE MORNINGTON PENINSULA, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA.

N.B. QUESTION MARKS IN BRACKETS ARE TO INDICATE THAT I CAN'T READ MY SCRIBBLED NOTES.ENTRIES ARE NOT VERBATIM TRANSCRIPTIONS OF SUTHERLAND'S TEXT. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION HAS BEEN PROVIDED FROM OTHER SOURCES.

The full title of Alexander Sutherland's 1888 publication is VICTORIA AND ITS METROPOLIS: PAST AND PRESENT. It is volume 2 that has the biographical details of many pioneers. I've been told that in order to be included, one had to subscribe , which I presume meant pre-paying for the book (perhaps only volume 2.)

C.N.Hollinshed has much information in his LIME LAND LEISURE about Alexander Sutherland, including his scholastic connection to Professor Hearn and Judge Higgins who owned Heronswood before and after Alexander, a stint at teaching, which explains the tutelage mentioned in the biography of W.C.Martin of Mornington,and financial difficulties.

It was the fact that so many pioneers were not mentioned in municipal histories ,and Vic and its Metro, that led me to embark on a bicentennial project in August 1988 in order to remedy this deficiency. Amazingly a Mr C.Bright* has been mentioned twice in the biographies of others but there is no entry for him under the Mornington District, (the area surrounding Westernport, probably the County of Mornington.)

*My policy is to describe the location of properties properly and I'm not about to allow Alexander Sutherland to get away with not doing so. One of his subjects had managed Bright's property and another was leasing it.

From C. E.Bright, drawing attention to the drainage on the Point Nepean road at Beleura road, also as to cattle (including three bulls wandering on the Esplanade).--Plans to be prepared for draining, and Mr. Bright informed that he has had remedy in regard to the bulls.(MORNINGTON SHIRE COUNCIL. Saturday, December 7th.
South Bourke and Mornington Journal (Richmond, Vic. : 1872 - 1920) Wednesday 11 December 1878 p 2 Article)

Charles certainly let the council know when roadworks or drainage was required, between theshire hall and Webb's on this occasion. (Same paper, P.3, 19-6-1978.)
He was living at Mornington by 1873 (actually 1872.) (Letter re Rev. Potter, P.1 Argus,19-2-1873.)

This gives a decent clue as to where Bright's property was.
From Mr. C.E.Bright, requesting the council to form a road along tho esplanade from Belleura Gate,
to bridge over Tanti Creek
, and stating he held in hand £40, which, with additional sums to be collected, he was prepared to subscribe towards the object. The clerk of works was ordered to prepare plans and specifications for the work, and an estimate of its cost.(P.6,Argus, 10-12-1872.)

The original name for the area on the west side of Canterbury Jetty Rd (west of Owen Cain's Tyrone)was Manners-Sutton. Sydney Smith Crispo had given it this name in honour of the Governor and his wife. Later,he renamed it Canterbury in honour of the same Governor;Sir John Manners-Sutton had become Viscount Canterbury during his tenure as Governor. ANNA MARIA GEORGIANA BRIGHT of Beleura, Mornington, was the Governors daughter!
VISCOUNT CANTERBURY'S CONFIDENTIAL DESPATCHES: TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS.
The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) Saturday 23 March 1878 p 8 Article


TOWN TALK.
We stated some time since that Mr C.E. Bright, the son-in-law of Viscount Canterbury, was likely to be appointed Agent-in-General in England for this colony. It is probable that the appointment of this gentleman will shortly be announced.(P.2, Geelong Advertiser, 24-4-1873.)

Did Charles and Anna actually own Beleura, and how big was the property?
TO LET -Beleura HOUSE Schnapper Point,the property of C E Bright, Esq , to be Let furnished for a period of one two, or three years. The grounds comprise pleasure garden and about 22 acres of land. Immediate possession. Apply Fraser and Co., 33 Collins- street west. (P.8,Argus,25-12-1873.)



Not much of a summary is needed for pioneers such as John Buckley and John Oswin because the authors of books about the Balnarring district would have consulted Andrew's book, one of the most quoted books in local histories. It looks as if their neighbour, John Davies, did not subscribe. Perhaps the greatest value of this journal will be to family historians whose ancestors were teachers, bank employees etc who may have been in various areas for shorter periods than farmers and so on. The peninsula connection may not have made it in the family folklore. These movements, such as those of Richard Gilsenan of Bulla, Trentham and Eltham can sometimes be traced through trove but it can be a laborious process. Enough detail about each pioneer is given to enable researchers to ascertain whether he is one of their mob.

ALLISON, William. Born 1861 Mornington. Spent 2 years running a small vessel between Mornington and Melbourne, eight and a half years as a blacksmith, then drove the Mornington-Dromana coach until some time ago when he married and took to conducting the Arthurs Seat Hotel, the property of his wife.

Comment. After her husband's death, Catherine Wainwright applied to have the hotel licence transferred to her but as she was the executrix, there was no need to do so. The next year the same woman was running the hotel but now her name was Catherine Allison. There was also a Boag-Wainwright marriage and the two grandmothers of a young Wainwright lad who died circa 1910 were Mrs Allison and Mrs Boag.

Sir,-To my great surprise and annoyance, I notice that my name appears as one of the vice -presidents of the junior football club here: I have never been consulted in the matter, nor did I authorise my name to be
made use of, and have no desire for any connection therewith. Yours very faithfully, R. B. BRIDGE. Mornington.

BROWN, William, Shoreham. Born Dundee 1815. First came as boatswain on the City of Edinburgh in about 1837;it was wrecked on Flinders Island.He was later a gunner for the East India Company for 11 years before returning to England and coming to Victoria in 1852 to take up an appointment in the pilot service. After returning home again in 1856, he came back in 1863 and bought his 160 acre farm.

Comment. The geographically list first assessment of the Flinders Road Board on 8-6-1869 indicates that William Brown's 160 acre property was in the parish of Flinders near Henry Tuck's 970 acres.In the road board's last assessment of 13-6-1874 William was also rated on 169 acres leased from John Duff in the parish of Balnarring.

FROM MY SHIRE OF FLINDERS JOURNAL.
BROWN William Jnr. 1889-91
Flinders and Kangerong Shire- In this shire there is a contest in one riding only, viz., the Central ; Mr Tas. Wilding nominating in opposition to the retiring member Cr Brown.(P.2, Mornington Standard, 25-8-1892.)

SHIRE OF FLINDERS AND KANGERONG. The only contest was in the Centre Riding, where Joseph Wilding defeated the retiring Cr W. Brown by 21 votes. This result was almost anticipated, as a good many ratepayers desired a change. In the East Riding as usual, that popular representative Robert Stanlry had a walk over, and the same be said of Cr John Cain who was again re turned unopposed, a well-deserved recognition of an able councillor. this occasion George McLear has been re-elected auditor without opposition. A good man in the right place.
((P.2, Mornington Standard, 1-9-1892.)

William Brown Snr was one of the ratepayers in the Flinders Road Board's first assessment of 1869, He had a house and 160 acres of land in the parish of Flinders. By 13-6-1874, he was also paying rates to the road board on 169 acres in the parish of Balnarring that he was leasing from Duff. This was probably just west of Balnarring Rd which separated Balnarring from Bittern, but as no crown allotment of this size can be found and Duff does not seem to have been a grantee, its location cannot be specified. It was possibly on Joseph Hann's land, granted in 1861, south of Warrawee. (Melway 193 C6.)

William Brown might have been related to Jonas Brown who was also an original ratepayer of the Flinders Road Board. He had a house and 594 acres of land in the parish of Bittern. Actually consisting of 595 acres 1 rood and 27 perches and being crown allotments 140, 141 and 145 of the parish of Bittern, this land was granted to him on 8-11-1873. It was between Sandy Point Rd and Westernport, with crown allotment 140 between Kennedy Rd and South Beach Rd, 141 and 145 extending east to the boundary of H.M.A.S Cerberus. (Melway 194 E9 to J 11.)

Mr W. Brown is staying at Mr Cavanagh's "Warrawee," Balnarring.(P.2, Mornington Standard, 26-4-1902.)

Mr W. Brown, of Shoreham, has sold to Mr McLeod, of Balnarring, a house and 75 acres of land. (P.2, Mornington Standard, 4-3-1905.)


Death of an Old Colonist. With the death of the late Mrs Janet Brown, which took place at Shoreham on Wednesday, the 14th inst., of heart failure and paralysis, after a short illness, an old identity of the district, and a colonist of 50 years, is removed from our midst. The deceased lady, who was the widow of the late Captain Brown, of Shoreham, who died in 1890, was born in Dundee, Scotland, 79 years ago. She arrived in this country by the ship "Emigrant" in 1853, having as one of her fellow passengers Mr M'Coll, M.P., who was then a child. It will be of interest to many to learn that Mrs Brown was for some time the only white woman in Queencliff, and the first to reside there. Her husband at that time held a position in the lifeboat service, in which the piloting work of Port Phillip Bay was then included. Being in touch, owing to her husband's connection with pilot work, with the news of both incoming and outgoing vessels, when the tedium of a long voyage, with such fare as salt junk and hard sea biscuit, and experiences of lying becalmed for weeks, in addition to getting driven miles out the course by gales in the broad Atlantic, also the possibility of a mutiny of the crew and other startling contingencies was the order of the day, instead of the few weeks' trip and good cuisine of the modern steam liner, Mrs Brown had a stock of very interesting ancedotes. Many victims of shipwreck on the treacherous coast in the vicinity of the Heads have had reason to remember her kind ministrations, resulting in no few instances in the preservation of life. Of the persons quartered at Qurenscliff in those days, Captain M'Intyre, of Melbourne, and Mr M'Donald, retired lighthouse keeper, who was afterwards for some time stationed at Cape Schanck, are now the only survivors. About 36 years ago the deceased lady removed to Shoreham with her husband, who had a purchased property there. She leaves no children. but Mr Wm. Brown, a nephew. and Miss Brown, a niece, have been living with her from infancy. The remains were interred in the Flinders Cemetery on Friday, the 16th inst. (P.2, Mornington Standard, 24-10-1903.)

SHOREHAM (near FLINDERS). CLEARING SALE. THURSDAY, MARCH 28. ROBERT GUNN & CO. THROUGH their W. N. Wauchope, have received instructions from Mr W. BROWN, Shoreham, owing to his having sold his property, to SELL on the above date at 12.30 The Whole of his CATTLE, SHEEP, HORSES, IMPLEMENTS, HOUSE HOLD FURNITURE, and LAND. WITHOUT RESERVE. Fall particulars next issue.(P.2, Mornington Standard, 11-3-1905.)

It seems that William Brown Junior or his son spent some of his time being what was referred to until quite recently as a WHITE MAGGOT. A report of a football game between Hastings and Shoreham concludes:
Mr. Brown was very satisfactory as central umpire. (P.3, Mornington Standard, 15-8-1895.)

The same chap, whether the councillor or his son had to contend with hoodlums! The writer had trouble spelling Cleine at first. The players are a good representation of pioneering families of Red Hill and eastwards.

HOODLUMS V. SHOREHAM. A second club has been formed at Balnarring. It has been called the Hoodlums. This match was played on the Balnarring ground. Brown captained the visitors, and Vann the locals. Brown won the toss, and elected to bat. Shoreham won by 24 runs. The scores are as follows : SHOREHAM. Forty, b J. Davis, jun. ... S J. Byrne, b Stanley ... 4 J. Clyne, b J. Davis, jun. ... . S W.

In this event, the Shoreham residents were portrayed as HOODLUMS! It was common for meetings of railway leagues to get nowhere because agreement on a route that suited everyone was impossible. See the Flinders objection to OBJECTOR on page 2 of the Mornington Standard of 12-7-1890. I apologise for not correcting all the text.

TO THE EDITOR SIR.-Certain of the good people of Flinders and Shoreham are ever of an enthusiastic and demonstrative disposition so much so, that many years ago they obtained for themselves the unenviable character of being barbarians. That this characteristic, had died out, as civilation and the attendant elements of refining influence has blended with them, was a " consutnm:ttion devoutly to be wished," but, so far as the incursion of a hand ulitd on the ever peaceful neighborhood of Red Hill on the second instant shows : the most sanguine hoper must admit, that as the d--1 having entered the herd of swine, "there remains," as the Qu.tker sitld, " still some taint in.the Iacon.". 'The occlssaion was ; meeting held at R',d Hill. wheat sonie gentlemen, members of the Central Rttil way League met to transtot some il'ttle business relating to the affairs of the League, and to express thi ir satisf trtion at the proposals of the Government re railway extension to these parts ; when. a large number of Flinders a:ail Shorehami residents put in an unexpe:ted app�narance; for what purpose-other than to upnst the meeting-I am at a loss to com?prelhed, this was done, however, atnd most e!Ye:t nally. A stormy and desultory scene followed, nothing relevant to the purpose of the meeting could be transacted. Finally the local residents withdrew and the meeting broke up. The visitors then betook themselves to the road where several speakers prominent amongst whom were Messrs Callanan, Brown and Darley, delivered orations from the top of a stump, to the evident delight of their companions who cheered their efforts lustily. Their wind bags being emptied, with long and continued cheering for themselves, and groans of horrible intensity for the Hill, they dispersed, leaving the locality to enjoy its wonted quiet. It is hoped that in the interest of peace, no more such disgraceful scenes will occur, and that our friends of Flinders and Shoreham, will become wiser; from a retrospect of Wednesday night's outing. By giving publicity to the foregoing through the columns of your widely circulating journal you will oblige. I am etc., OBJECTOR. Red Hill, July 3rd, 1890.(P.2, Mornington Standard, 5-7-1890.)

The 84 acres known as Brown's Farm, at Shoreham, sold by Messrs Rupert Nicolson and Co. on Wednesday. It brought �590, Dr Roderik Sutherland, of Collins-street, being the purchaser. (P.2, Mornington Standard, 22-2-1902.)

SUTHERLAND'S. The farm known as "Seaview," recently part of the estate of the late J.T. T. Smith, has now been purchased by Mr Sutherland. 'The property contains about 80 acres and, like most of the Shoreham land, is an ideal dairying block, for which purpose Mr Sutherland intends to utilise it, and has a good strip of land under cultivation to provide green feed for his cattle. The homestead, which was built by the late Captain Brown, is in a good position, and the Shoreham creamery adjoins the property*.
(AROUND FLINDERS. P.2, Mornington Standard, 20-9-1902.)


*Last night I was tempted to hazard a guess that the 160 acre farm consisted of crown allotments 28 (84.3.15) and 29 (74.3.34), a total of 159 acres 3 roods 9 perches(about 159.8 acres.) Having spent considerable time establishing the location of the creamery for Val Wilson, I believe that Beach Rd (Melway 256 F 9) separated the Shoreham Creamery and Captain Brown's farm(Beach road to bottom of map 256.)

P.392.
BUCKLEY, John,Balnarring. A native of Ireland who came to Victoria in 1857, spent time at Kew* and lime burning near Port Phillip Heads before he became the first Balnarring resident in 1861.
*Probably the hero that prevented a drowning tragedy in the Yarra.-TROVE.



CALLANAN, Edmund James, Shoreham. Born at Balla Balla near Cranbourne and educated at St Patrick's College, Melbourne, he followed pastoral pursuits until 1883 and in 1884 explored the interior of Western Australia, then married Mary Sarah, only daughter of Captain James Glynn (army) and went to Shoreham to manage the Annandale Estate of his father who had been in the Land Department for many years.

Comment. The first mention of the Callanans in the Shire of Flinders and Kangerong rates seems to have been in the 19-7-1884 assessment when Edmund Callanan was rated on 696 acres and buildings, Balnarring owned by M. Callanan. On 17-7-1886, Edmund J. Callanan, grazier, and Michael Callanan, surveyor, were assessed on 1860 acres and buildings, Balnarring. In 1899, E.J.Callanan's land was specified as c/a 56, 57, 58, 97 (fronting south west side of Pt Leo Rd near Frankston-Flinders Rd),and Michael's 1164 acres probably consisted of c/a 81, part 82, 85, 86, 87, 92 and 85A2 (mainly ex Buchanan on the south side of Callanans Rd.) By 1909, Michael was living at 2 Lorraine St, Essendon.

CLAYTON, Archibald,Flinders. Born Adelaide 1857. Joined Education Department 1872 and after 8 years at Castlemaine and 4 years on the Murray, had been at Flinders for the previous 3 years. He is secretary of the Mechanics' Institute and cricket club and the organist.

COLE G.W., Minto. Much detail in LIME LAND LEISURE, probably supplied by Valda Cole, a notable historian.

DAVEY, Charles Edward, Frankston. Born 1850. Educated at Frankston.

DAVEY, William. Born at Gardiners Creek, his father James having arrived from Cornwall in 1838 and built the first house in Frankston in 1851. Landlord of the Bay View Hotel which he bought in 1874 and also a timber merchant and builder.

Comment. James Davey had the Ballanrong Run near Mornington Racecourse and the Kannanuke Run whose pre-emptive right was between Old Mornington Rd and the coast (Davey Bay etc)as far south as Boundary Rd (Canadian Bay Rd.) Members of the Davey family were granted Forest Lodge, Seven Oaks and Kent Orchard/ Rosslyn near Craig Avon Rd as well as Wannaeue land on Arthurs Seat. Olivers Hill was originally known as "Old Man Davey's Hill" after James Davey's father William who used its elevation to spot fish, as did a member of the Oliver family later on.

DIMOND, James, Dromana. Native of Bristol who came to Western Australia in 1852 and then Victoria in 1854, working for the Harbour Trust at Portland until 1860 when he joined the Lighthouse Department, spending two years in charge of the Gabo Island light. He is now lighthouse superintendent at the Arthurs Seat*
light.(*McCrae.)

DOLPHIN, Oliver, Frankston. Born Leicester 1851. Arrived Vic. 1869.

Comment. The Dolphin name still appears in local papers during the cricket season, Henry (I think) Dolphin being a star for (I think) Crib Point. I often read the cricket results purely to see how many pioneering surnames are mentioned. When I first saw DOLPHIN,my first thought was of a West Indies origin of the name. If Henry is indeed a descendant of Oliver,the pioneer of 1869 might have been the son of an emancipated slave. See the photo of Henry in the following, which indicates that my suspicion might be right.

P.394.
EDWARDS, William, Dromana. A native of London who arrived N.S.W. in 1849 and made a living by droving and cattle dealing then ran a hotel in Ballarat. In 1866 he went to Dunedin in N.Z. and built a hotel. In 1874 he spent 12 months in South Australia then built a hotel in Hotham (North Melbourne.) SOME TIME AFTERWARDS he settled at DROMANA on the MORNINGTON road where he keeps the well and favorably known Schnapper Point Hotel, also owning 300 pounds worth of land in the locality.

Comment. Biography notes were supplied by the person described, so all Alexander Sutherland had to do was put the information into his flowery prose. I don't know which of them was responsible for such a confusing piece. I searched for land circa 1888 owned by William Edwards in the parish of Kangerong and found none*. The well known hotel was called the Schnapper Point only by William Edwards and was actually the Tanti Hotel at MORNINGTON on the DROMANA road. See my journal about the Tanti Hotel, first mentioned in about 1854 but supposedly established in 1852 according to the historical sites information near the entrance of the Mornington Museum.

*In light of the following, William Edwards being described as a "farmer of Dromana in 1878", and the possibility that he indeed had land which was being leased during the years I inspected (and the owner column being blank in almost every assessment), I am prepared to research this again if requested by Edwards descendants. William's confusing biography prompted my extensive research on the Dromana and Scurfield/ Arthurs Seat hotels in order to establish that his hotel was neither of these. Until I discovered his link with the Tanti Hotel, I had a wild theory that his hotel might have been at Rosebud.

PAGE 13, of my ADAMS' CORNER.(Completed in November 2010, about 5 months after I started my Peninsula research and was still scratching in the dark.)
The following information about loans comes from documents in Harvey Marshall's scrapbook.

In August, 1878, Henry Everest Adams gave William Edwards, farmer of Dromana, a loan of 128 pounds and 9 shillings, which was to be repaid with interest on 30-6-1880. Edwards mortgaged crown allotment 86 of section 18A, Wannaeue.

Lawyers weren't historians; this should have been lot 86 of crown allotment 18, section A, Wannaeue. Crown allotment 18 was bounded by Adams Ave, Eastbourne Rd, Jetty Rd and the beach road. Lot 86 was the only block sold in a failed subdivision. Consisting of two acres on the FJ's corner, it had been sold before Robert White (Blooming Bob White) bought the remaining 150 acres in 1875 and came into the ownership of Jack Jones who built Rosebud's first store there circa 1900. The fact that the prior sale of lot 86 was not pointed out led to the sale of c/a 18 to the (Leak/Lake?) brothers being cancelled after an unsuccessful attempt had been made to kick Jack Jones off the 2 acre block.

Land was dirt cheap in 1878, so why would Captain Adams regard this 2 acre block as sufficient security? My now- discarded theory was that William was spending the money to build a hotel upon it, which would dramatically increase its value. The captain had accepted Antonio Bosina's fishing boat Lily as security on a 20 pounds loan. There would be no doubt that Antonio would repay the loan because his livelihood depended on it.

It is possible therefore that William was a friend of the captain who owned 36 acres on Towerhill Rd near the Arthurs Seat summit. Somewhere in my notes I have a later reference to a married woman (nee Edwards) and lot 86, crown allotment 18 Wannaeue.

Frankston and Somerville Standard (Vic. : 1921 - 1939) Saturday 15 February 1930 p 6 Article
.....Many of the fishermen reached Rosebud, Sandringham, Port Arlington and Queenscliff in quest of fish and
it was no uncommon feat to sail from Frankston up the Yarra to Melbourne with fish, and come back with supplies, which consisted mainly of flour.

These excursions to the Yarra stopped when Thomas and James Wren commenced running a cart to Melbourne with fish. They sold out to the Frankston Fish Company in 1867.This company consisted of (1) Messrs Henry Prosser, who arrived in Victoria in 1844, and carried fish from Hastings to Frankston, before joining the company;
(2) James Croskell an American from Rhodes, who came to Frankston in 1859; he was also an
extensive land owner; (3) John Dixon Box, born in Tasmania, 1840, and worked with Wren Bros., fish dealers,
Melbourne. Later he bought Frankston's first bakery from Croskell and Ritchie; (4) Phillip Renouf, born at
Jersey Island, arrived in Adelaide in 1863. He carried fish from Frankston to Hastings before joining the company; (5) Thomas Ritchie (senior), born at the Isle of Man. He came to Frankston in 1852, owned Frankston's
first bakery, which was under Frankston House. He built Frankston and Osborne houses. Osborne house was
originally called "Ballacrane." This fish company was begun in 1867 to supply Melbourne with fish.

GILLETT, Francis A.Gillett,Mornington.Born in London, he arrived in Victoria in 1853 aboard the Essex.

Comment.Francis was granted crown allotment 11C in the parish of Moorooduc on 14-4-1874. This was east of the southern half of the Tuerong pre-emptive right with its south west corner being that of the Woods Reserve with Gillett Rd (Melway 152C5) providing access from Buckley's (Balnarring) Road.Its north east corner is now a bit soggy,being at the bottom left corner of 152H4, the eastern boundary being a line joining the two straight sections of Derril Rd.

From Mt Eliza Wikipedia page.
Adjacent to Sunnyside beach sits a historical property Morning Star Estate. Morning Star Estate is a distinctive example of a Victorian era mansion built as a rural or holiday retreat on the Mornington Peninsula, it incorporates a variety of picturesque styles including Tudor and Gothic revival.
Sunnyside estate (now Morning Star Estate) was originally purchased by Londoner Francis Alfred Gillett in 1865 a short time after he arrived in the colony in 1853. Gillett designed the Sunnyside mansion sometime around 1867-1870.

I loved that bit about 1865 being SHORTLY AFTER 1853!!! What did Francis do during that short time? He seems to have been living across Cecil St from the South Melbourne Market site (Melway 1C F12.)
A PARCEL from England for Mr. F. A Gillett,Waterloo-place, lies with J, T. -Hazard, Lonsdale-street west.(P.1, Argus, 3-7-1855.)

I wonder if U.Cory A.Gillett, who also arrived in 1853,was related to Francis.
IF Mr. Neele of this city were to apply at the General Post Office, he would hear of U.Cory A. Gillett,Just arrived from England. 17254 |(P.1, Argus,13-8-1853.)

TOWN LOTS,SANDRIDGE, PARISH OF SOUTH MELBOURNE. Lot 8. Eighteen perches and one-tenth, 118/. the lot, Francis Alfred Gillett.(P.6,Argus, 3-5-1859.)

Sunnyside,crown allotment 5,no section,Moorooduc,between Sunnyside Rd and Manmangur Creek and consisting of 159 acres 3 roods and 9 perches,was granted to John Yewers whose family is discussed at length in Bruce Bennett's THE BUTCHER THE BAKER THE.

From:
Manyung, Norman Lodge, Mount Eliza, Mornington ...

Francis Gillett is believed to have designed Manyung. He owned the property Sunshine* to the south of Manyung. Richard Grices son James built Moondah in 1888 to the north of Manyung.

*I thought I'd better check what Francis actually did call his estate!

GOMIN (sic)GOMM Henry,Somerville. Born Oxford 1839 and (came to Victoria in the same yearX.) Has lived at Somerville for 21 years and owns 400 acres.

Comments.Henry Gomm and Leila Shaw (and Henry Gomm of Rosebud) cost me 6 months of my life, causing the termination of my PENINSULA DICTIONARY HISTORY and DROMANA AND MILES AROUND ON TROVE,but they did lead to my discovery of FAMILY TREE CIRCLES. After months and months of transcribing rate records and tedious note-making from many local histories, I borrowed Leila Shaw's THE WAY WE WERE believing that I could read it for pleasure only.

That was until I saw a map on about page 4 showing land in the parish of Tyabb owned by Henry Gomm. I wondered if this was the Henry Gomm assessed on the Jetty's Cafe site near the Rosebud jetty. A lengthy search revealed that no Henry Gomm, born in Oxfordshire in 1839 came to Australia in 1839. However, I did discover Convict Henry Gomm,transported to Van Diemans Land not long before 1839 and suspected that Somerville Henry might have been Convict Henry's son. After spending that six months researching and writing THE MYSTERIOUS HENRY GOMM, which,like an Agatha Christie novel reveals all at the end (being a journal of discoveries),it was discovered that Aussie 47 had provided the details of Somerville Henry's arrival,recorded on page 16 (of 34) in my book.
George (29), Ann (28),and Henry (4)Gomm arrived in Port Phillip from Liverpool, aboard the Wallace, on 3-11-1844.

The Rosebud Fishing Village block near the jetty was granted to William Gomm on 16-8-1872. He later moved to Hastings and married the daughter of a Hastings pioneer with his brother Henry taking over the block near the future (first and present)Rosebud jetty site. A third brother, Thomas,seemingly living at Dromana, drowned shortly after testifying at the inquiry into Alfred Downward's disputed election to Parliament.All three were sons of Convict Henry and had lived in the parish of Moorabbin and on the peninsula as neighbours of Somerville Henry's family from the 1850's till about 1915; Somerville Henry and his future wife, Margaret Monk, had earlier lived in Balcombe Rd between Charman Rd and Church Rd (now St) Mentone. William left his wife for a 20 year old whom he married after his wife's death. It was wife 2 who sold the fishing village block to one of the Peatey family.

This is the basis of Graham Whitehead's story on the City of Kingston's Heritage website.
People: Two Gomm Families
localhistory.kingston.vic.gov.au/htm/article/521.htm
Mar 4, 2012 - Henry Gomm, a Cheltenham pioneer. ... In the 1850s there were two distinct Gomm families residing in Cheltenham. ..... Graham J Whitehead.

The MYSTERIOUS HENRY GOMM would not have been needed if his 1888 biography had been as well written as his obituary.
The Late Mr Henry Gomm.
By the death of Mr Henry Gomm,
Somerville has lost one of its oldest
identities and one of its oldest bene
factors. As the late gentleman was
a colonist of 74 years, the story of
his life is very interesting, especially
to residents of this district.
Leaving England with his parents
in the ship "'Wallace" he arrived in
Victoria in November 1843, being
then five years of age. His parents
settled in Melbourne and the boy
received his early education at St
James' School, West Melbourne.
When he was 11 years old, his parents
removed to Cope Cope where his
father was employed as a bunder on
Sutherland's sheep station. Go!d
having been discovered at Bendigo
the family resolved to try their for
tunes on the goldfields. They re
mained there about one year and
then proceeded to Collingwood
where Mr Gomm Senr. bought land
and erected houses. Some time
later the family shifted to Chelten
ham and Mr Gomm who was the
15 years of age, became engaged in
fishing pursuits at what was then
called Schnapper Point. Sub
quently he and his father in con
junction purchased a craft and visited
Mud Island in search of guana.
After several successful trips the
vessel was wrecked at Davey's Bay,
near Frankston and all the belong
ings of the crew were lost, as was
also the craft.
After the loss of the boat he en
tered into market gardening but on
the outbreak of the Port Curtis di
gings in Queensland, he journeyed
there to try his luck. The venture
proved a disastrous failure and Mr
Gomm returned to Cheltenham.
The following year, 1859, he married
Margaret Monk and settled down.
Mr Gomm afterwards built a home
in this district and 51 years ago last
November he brought his wife and
family to live at what is now Somer
ville where all but two of the family
were born.
The late gentleman was very en
thusiastic in all matters relating to
the welfare of the district, his time
money and assistance being always
proffered with the greatest willingness
and alacrity. - His liberality is too
well known to require much comment
as he donated the ground where
stand both the local Mechanics' In
stitute and the Church of England.
He leaves a widow, four sons and
five daughters also 27 surviving grand
children and two great-grandchild.
Mr Gomm was an only son, he and
his three sisters being the total family
of his parents.
He was of a very bright and cheer
ful disposition and was keenly ap
preciative of a good joke. In
boyhood he spent much time amongst
the blacks and could speak the lang
age ef the aborigines; also he could
throw the boomerang and other na
tive weapons.
Of his sons one is now fighting
France, whilst a grandson took part
in 'lthe landing" and fought for 6
months in Gallipoli and is still on
active service. A second grandson
only 18 years-of age, is now in camp
preparing to do his bit for the Empire.
So far as Somerville is concerned,it
may be truly said that the late Mr
Gomm has left his "footprints on the
sands of time."
(The Late Mr Henry Gomm.
Mornington Standard (Frankston, Vic. : 1911 - 1920) Saturday 28 April 1917 p 2 Article)

The "White Pages Lottery" is one that I have often won,having led me to Ray Guest,hence Ron Doig (who explained the origins of streets names on James Trueman's grants fronting the west side of Truemans Rd,Tootgarook. Another win was finding Murray Gomm and his tea chest of treasures! Henry Gomm grew up in the Moorabbin parish with Tommy Bent whose later political influence saw the Somerville Station located right next to Henry's Glenhoya (instead of near Lower Somerville Rd, which Leila Shaw said was the centre of population),and young station master,Graf,transferred to Ascot Vale Station. Who else but Henry Gomm would have been able to get the premier, Thomas Bent, to open the Somerville Fruitgrowers' Show? Even Tommy's relatives, the Huntleys of Brighton and Hillside Orchard at Red hill, would not have dared to even propose such "Three Wishes"!

Incidentally Billy and George Gomm, Henry's grandsons (sons of Paddy) are Legends of the Somerville Football Club and Murray Gomm,son of George who married a Wilson girl from Red Hill) is a local footy show LOCAL FOOTY HERO.



GRIFFITH Jonah,Dromana. Came to Victoria in 1854. See Jonah (Dohn) Griffith on pages 27,35,42,68, 69,141 and 149 of Colin McLear's A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA and much more about other members of the family. An "itellya, Griffith" google search will reveal much other information, such as the boundaries of the Griffith homestead block on Jamieson's Special Survey. Melbourne Brindle's map of Dromana,which can be purchased from the Dromana museum,shows the location of Jonah's house in Seaview Pde, in which his mother-in-law Sarah Renouf(nee Prosser and widow of Isaac Sawyer) died. It also shows where Jonah built his fishing boat Doris and habitually anchored it to the east of the Dromana pier. N.B. THERE ARE TWO VERSIONS OF THIS MAP SO CHECK ON THE WEST SIDE OF JETTY RD RE THE HOUSE AND BOAT BUILDING, AND EAST OF THE JETTY RE THE NAME OF THE BOAT.

P.395.
INGAMELLS, Josiah,Hastings. Born Lincolnshire. Came to Victoriain 1862. Commencing as a state school teacher at Geelong in 1869,he went afterwards to Hastings in sole charge of the state school and is still teaching.

IRVINE,(C.M.?) Miller, Mornington. Native of Scotland who arrived in N.S.W.in 1855, moving to Victoria after three months.Unsuccessful at the diggings and in New Zealand,he then took charge of Mr Bright's grounds at Mornington for 16 years. Suffering ill health he became proprietor of the Baths and librarian at the Athenaeum. He is a member for the west riding of (Mornington) council.

JENNER, Hon. Caleb Joshua, Mornington.Born at Alfriston,Sussex in1830,he arrived in Victoriaaboard the "Clifton" in February 1850 and commenced pursuits at Geelong. He was the M.L.C.for South Province from 1963 until he retired in 1886. He is now renting Mr.C.Bright's estate which has magnificent grounds.

JONES,Alfred, Somerville. N.B.CONFIRMED BY JOHN G.MANN, WHO WROTE THE EARLY HISTORY OF MT ELIZA IN 1926,AS ONE OF THE THREE CANADIANS (JONES, HODGINS, McCURLEY)WHO SUPPLIED TIMBER TO THE "LIVERPOOL" WHICH ANCHORED HALF A MILE OFFSHORE IN CANADIAN BAY, OBVIOUSLY TO THE NORTH OF BOUNDARY (CANADIAN BAY) ROAD IN THE PARISHOF FRANKSTON. Alf's homestead area of the 500 acres was called the Almond Bush Stud. Peggy Gage's father occupied the stud after Alf's death. Valda Cole believes the name of Somerville had Canadian origins and Alf, who owned two horses (one a pacer) called Lord Somerville and Lady Somerville which raced at W.S.Cox's Kensington Park Racecourse, may have suggested the name for the Somerville district at the intersection of the parishes of Frankston,Moorooduc and Tyabb. Almond Bush Stud was east of Grants Rd and thus in the parish of Tyabb.

Born in London,Alf went to Canada with his parents at the age of 12 in 1832. Arriving in Victoria in March 1853 he went to Bendigo with a party of 5 and found 15 ounces of gold in 5 weeks. He had no luck at McIvor's Diggings (Heathcote)and moving to FRANKSTON (Parish of!), supplied the town of Melbourne and the troop(er)s with firewood at three pounds ten shillings per load. After two years, competition had lowered profits so he rented Baxter's Flat for 5 years and in 1860 purchased 500 acres at Somerville, then called Tyabb (Parish of!).

THE SMITHS OF RED HILL NEAR DROMANA, VIC., AUST.

SMITH.â On the 18th May, at private hospital, Somerville, Annie Catherine, dearly loved wife of the late Carl C. Juby Smith loving mother of Fred (deceased), Edgar (deceased), Charles (deceased), Caroline (Mrs. George Clarke, Red Hill), Frances (Mrs. Geo. Gibson, Red Hill), aged 76 years. (P.1,Argus, 20-5-1930.)

In 1919,Carl Jaby Smith of Red Hill was assessed on 105 acres and buildings, 15 B, Kangerong,as he had been in 1910 when he was described as an orchardist. This property was south of the Kangerong Nature Conservation Reserve, extending south to the bend in Red Hill Rd near number 227 where it adjoined the Huntleys' Hillside Orchard. The Gibsons were over Red Hill Rd on crown allotment 78A, Balnarring.

DOUGLAS WILLIAM BACHLI'S PATRON PARK STUD AT DROMANA,VIC., AUST.

Who's Doug Bachli?
Sport Australia Hall of Fame - Athlete Members
www.sahof.org.au/hall-of-fame/athlete-members/
Bachli MBE, Mr Douglas, Golf, 1987. Baker, Mr Reginald 'Snowy', Boxing, Rugby Union, Diving, Swimming, Polo, 1985. Bannerman, Mr Charles, Cricket, 1986.

A EUREKA MOMENT! BUT WHERE DO I POST IT?
The rough location of the Patron Park Stud was discovered during my research for the HERITAGE WALK, ROSEBUD journal. As the stud was actually in Dromana but my HERITAGE WALK,DROMANA journal deals with sites on or near the Esplanade, I thought a new journal was the best idea.

The Rosebud journal gives much information about the Bachli family under the ROSEBUD HOTEL entry. Both Rosebud and Dromana had their share of famous people and we Rosebud residents are willing to share Doug with Dromana.

The Bachli family seems to have been involved in the hospitality industry for some time before Doug's father, John Phillip (Phil)took on Rosebud's long- awaited hotel in 1941. Frank (probably Doug's great uncle) ran a hotel at Ararat pre 1916, Doug's father had a hotel at Shepparton before moving to Canberra in the mid 1930's,probably to look after his father, William, and run Brassey House for him. After leaving Rosebud,Doug, three years after his marriage to Dorothy and living in Surrey Hills, took on a hotel in Melbourne in 1956.

Phil and Doug were passionate about the Sport of Kings but I have found no evidence of their involvement in this pursuit before their arrival in Rosebud. Their horses certainly competed after this time at Canberra and no doubt the opportunity was taken to meet old friends still living there.

While the Patron Park Stud was being established, Doug was probably running the hotel and helping Phil to erect stables, fencing etc. on the 48 acre stud whenever he could so the footy ground across the road from the Rosebud Hotel was probably instrumental in honing the skills that won him the 1954 British Amateur Championship. Along with this and his service in W.W.2 (see comment under the ROSEBUD journal), Doug spent precious little time on golf courses in the first half of the 1940's.

Trove searches for the location of the stud involved many fruitless hours and the following was discovered in a google search for PATRON PARK STUD,DROMANA. Of course Harbison Rd had to be Harrisons Rd. The stud was probably being sold by the Doody family which had bought it from Doug; they had another stud at Diggers Rest.

The actual location of the 48 acres is yet to be pinpointed. A possible Doody descendant at Sunbury or Doug's son,Paul, might be able to help me. What is of interest is that no training track was mentioned. My guess is that the stud was close to Melway 160 H-J 7-8 where 117 acres,DROMANA RACECOURSE was gazetted in 1872.

Mar 10, 2000 - Vale - Douglas William Bachli - (1922 - 2000). The Golf Society of Australia lost ... of his son Paul, âI have lost my heroâ - we have all lost a hero.

There was only one Bachli in White Pages for the whole of Melbourne. He was Doug's son but he had never seen Patron Park Stud. However,he gave me the mobile number of Doug's youngest son,Paul. I rang Paul but there was no answer and I left a message. Paul rang back first thing this morning. He knew where it was and spoke of black gates and the new name of Palimino Stud. He said the stud was near the Tech.School. As I drove north past the school, there was no sign of black gates. When I reached the north end of the recreation reserve with the subdivision of the Moat family's grants on my left,I knew it was time to turn around. That was when I saw the sign: PALiMINO STUD. It was 59 Harrisons Rd. Then I saw a Californian Bungalow with a four wheel drive in front of it but no driveway. This had to be the delightful weatherboard house of 1964 but I had to drive past it to the black gates with Palimino Stud wrought upon them.

As I walked up the driveway two pairs of eyes watched me warily. I introduced myself and explained my purpose to the older pair of eyes which filled with enthusiasm. Their owner showed me the stables (feed room,tack room,stalls with sliding doors which still slide beautifully and the concrete pad outside the feed room on which stood a silo which fed the feedboxes. Then he escorted me through the self contained three roomed flat attached to the north east corner of the house,and told me that the foundations of the six roomed weatherboard house had been compressed when somebody had substituted heavy terra cotta tiles for corrugated iron. The house, flat and stabling were all on five acres with grapevines on a paddock behind them. There is a lane on the north side of the house along which feed could probably be carried to each of the specified 10 agistment paddocks but Patron Park probably also extended to the south as well as east.

As we walked toward the black gates, I asked the owner his name and how to spell the surname. It was Frank Hilli* and I knew immediately why he hadn't been to the BACK TO RED HILL reunion on March 22, 2015. He mentioned the old passion fruit factory in Harrisons Rd and I told him about Barry Wright's photo of it in my MEMORIES OF RED HILL,POST 1940 journal. He told me it was now the Whispering Vines Cafe,done up beautifully with brick cladding and it certainly does look great,up the long drive from the impressive brick entrance (TOLLEO ESTATE?)

*There was a four day Hilli/ Cleine reunion on the same weekend that I only found out about after the hall had been booked and the date of the BACK TO RED HILL was publicised.

ALEXANDER HALDAN,PIONEER OF DROMANA,VIC., AUST. (& JAMES AND FRANCES HOLDEN.)

Alex. Haldan's name appears just once,on page 132, in Colin McLear's A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA, as one of the signatories in 1861 supporting Robert Quinan's bid for his private school to be chosen ahead of Daniel Nicholson's to become the Dromana Common School.

Silly me! I thought that Alex was the husband of Frances Holden whose store was near the Carrigg St corner. However, later investigation showed that the husband of Frances (who almost reached her 102nd birthday) was James Holden,a completely different person.

OBITUARY
CENTENARIAN PASSES.
The death of Mrs Frances Holden,probably the Peninsula's only centenarian, occurred at her residence at Dromana on Monday. Had she lived until October, Mrs Holden would have reached the age of 102 years. With her husband, she settled in Dromana 82 years ago and had lived there ever since. She came from Sussex, England, when a young
girl. In her younger days she took an active part in movements for the advancement of the district. A good
horsewoman, she used to join parties that went out hunting kangaroos. Burial took place in the Dromana
cemetery where the remains were interred beside those of her husband who died about 60 years ago. The burial service was read by the Rev.A.F. Falconer. Mr Hector Gamble, of Frankston had charge of the
funeral arrangements. (P.1, Frankston and Somerville Standard, 25-8-1934.)

The Postmaster-General was waited upon on Friday by Mrs.(Alex.)Haldan, accompanied by Mr. Fergusson, M.L.A., the object being to draw his attention to the inconvenience caused to the residents of Dromana by the removal of the post and telegraph office from that place to some distance outside Dromana. Mrs. Haldan represented that her husband had held the office of postmaster in Dromana for many years till the office was removed,and if it were now re-transferred to Dromana she was willing to supply a building for the purpose free of cost to the department. Mr. Cuthbert replied that if it was the wish of the residents generally that the office should be re-transferred,he would take the matter into consideration.

Mr.Gibson, the lessor of the post-office building, afterwards waited upon the Postmaster-General, and represented that he was one of the guarantors to the department in regard to the post-office at Dromana, and he desired that they might not be called upon to pay the deficiency of L.105 in the revenue. In support of his request he quoted several precedents, and Mr. Cuthbert promised to take the matter into consideration. Telegraph.

In LIME LAND LEISURE,C.N.Hollished stated that Alex. was a landholder,which came from the notice to Robert Caldwell. This might give the impression that he had a farm but he probably owned three township blocks,about an acre and a half, on which he would have built the original Carnarvon,the original post office. See my journal,HERITAGE WALK,DROMANA. He had built this by the 1865 assessment when he was rated on one acre and a six roomed house with outbuildings. In fact it would have been constructed before the 3-9-1864 assessment; either the rate collector forgot to assess him or my transcription was faulty. He was an electoral registrar for the general election.

JUST A GUESS ABOUT MARGARET HALDAN'S FAMILY. (From my journal,THE SHIRE OF FLINDERS.)
HENDERSON George M. 1875-9
Excerpt from John Cain's memories (included at the start of this journal.)
The Flinders and Kangerong Road Boards amalgamated and constituted the shire of Flinders and Kangerong. In the following August in '75 all the members were disbanded; four candidates were nominated for three in the west riding and he (John Cain) was successful and has never been opposed since. His colleagues were Messrs W. B. Ford and Robert Anderson, the latter held the seat till three years ago (John Barker jun, S. Tuck, and Geo. Henderson centre riding), (David Mairs, Caldwell and Robert Wighton east riding).

FLINDERS AND KANGERONG SHIRE Present:the President (John Barker junr.) Councillors McLear, Cain Anderson, Ford and Henderson. As had been anticipated considerable discussion ensued on the resumption of the question touching the action of councillor Henderson in interfering with the drains whereby his and the adjoining lands were completely submerged. A letter was read from Mr. Peddle, complaining of the damage done to his property through the water being diverted from its proper channel, and the outlet stopped up. Pointing out that the fact of Mr. Henderson being a Councillor rendered him more culpable in violating the law and, that if the Council did not take cognizance of his having done so it could not consistently prosecute for similar offences in future. Mr. Watkin also stated that he had and was still sustaining great injury from the same cause. The President thought that a reprimand would meet the case. Councillor, Anderson however. thought that Mr Henderson being a Councillor his infringement of the Act was more censurable; and, as great injury had been done to a great number of ratepayers, some stronger action should be taken in the matter. It was ultimately decided to reprimand Councillor Henderson, and a resolution to that effect was passed. The Secretary was in- structed to serve the notice requiring the re-opening of the drains in question.
(P.3, South Bourke and Mornington Journal, 31-7-1878.)

Nelson Ruddick (sic, Rudduck) v. G. M. Henderson ; 10, for money paid at defendant's request. Mr F. Stephen for plaintiff ; Mr Walsh for defendant. This case arose out of a drain being cut through the land of both plaintiff and defendant as recommended by Mr Muntz, the Engineer to the Shire, and to which the respective owners were to contribute, Mr Henderson's share being the amount claimed and which the plaintiff proved Mr Henderson had entrusted the plaintiff to pay for him, but which the defendant afterwards repudiated, as not being correct. After a brief hearing, in which the parties to the suit were examined, his Honor gave a verdict for the amount claimed and 5 10s. costs.(P.3, South Bourke and Mornington Journal, 16-2-1881.)

In order to make sense of the proximity of Henderson, Peddle, Watkins and Rudduck, the last three suffering from Henderson's drainage issues in the above two articles, some more rate research was needed. My first suspicion was that the incidents involved the Westernport area. However, the first shire rate record of 1875 showed that George Meldrum Henderson, butcher was assessed on 30 acres and a 3 roomed house in Dromana and 60 acres in Dromana . I suspect that the 60 acre property was crown allotment 12, section 1, Kangerong. Consisting of 60 acres 3 roods and 24 perches, this land, granted to Captain Ross,and bounded by Jetty Rd, Palmerston Ave, Mary St and Boundary Rd,became Spencer Jackson's Panoramic Estate. It is hilly and would have a tremendous run-off after heavy rain. It is across Palmerston Avenue from crown allotment 5 of section 1 of section 1. (More about crown allotment 5 later!)

There is no need to guess the location of the 30 acres, which being west of McCulloch St, actually was part of Dromana (Township); section 1 Kangerong was not and the post office was actually in the west corner of Foote St with much protest about it being moved closer to the pier later on.

These three suburban allotments in section E of the township were granted to G.M.Henderson on the dates shown below. C/A 5, 7 acres 3 roods 31 perches, granted 16-5-1876.
C/A 6, 8 acres 2 roods, granted 16-5-1876. The three roomed house was probably on one of these blocks.
C/A 7, 15 acres 2 roods 37 perches, granted 20-2-1883.
This gives a total of 31 acres and 28 perches but if the roods and perches were ignored, the total would be 30 acres. This land was bounded at the south end by Seawind Lane, Pindara Rd and McLear Rd (Melway 159 F12)and extended north to the present Arthurs Seat State Park.

By 1877, George was assessed on 114 acres Kangerong, a description used until 1884 when George was assessed on 137 acres Kangerong and 80 acres and buildings Wannaeue. The same property was assessed in 1885 but in 1886 George was only assessed on the 80 acres, this time described as being in Kangerong. I believe this land was in Wannaeue (across Pindara Rd from the 30 acres) but with such lack of certainty in the rate records, it would be a five week job to determine its location.

George Henderson was not the first or last to get rid of his flood by donating it to a neighbour. Back Road Bob Cairns did the same thing to Robert Henry Adams near the corner of Hove Rd and Bayview Rd (Hobson's Flat Rd)in about 1906, with William Hobley being wrongly blamed, Robert Anderson of Barragunda taking the side of Cairns and being ridiculed about his attempts to get back on council, and Robert Adams threatening Robert Cairns and his son with a shovel when they took a short cut. (Google "Hobson's Flat Road".)

As mentioned before, the future Panoramic Estate was across Palmerston Ave from Crown allotment 5, section 1, Kangerong. Consisting of 36 acres and 25 perches, it was granted to a speculator who obviously subdivided it. James Holden and John McLear had one acre blocks east and west of Carrigg St and Peter Pidota and Richard Watkins had 17 acres each. Watkins had built a 12 roomed house (yes, that's what the helpful rate collector called the Dromana Hotel!) by about 1862. Crown allotment 5 was bounded by the Esplanade (beach road), the Carrigg St/Kangerong Ave midline, Palmerston Ave and the Solander/Marna St midline. Lou Carrigg bought the Pidota 17 acre portion and the 34 acres became Spencer Jackson's Foreshore Estate in 1927.

Henry Pedder was a hotel keeper, so referring to the letter read to council, I had to assume he was running the Dromana Hotel for Watkins. But that's not what the rate records show. Newspaper articles refer to the Peddles at the Bay View and then the Royal Hotel at Hastings. Henry was assessed on 139 acres, Bittern in 1875 but by 1880, this had become 115 acres. Henry was granted 115 acres, being crown allotment 83A, Bittern on 24-3-1882. This had a 1268 metre frontage to Frankston-Flinders Rd and its queer eastern boundary can be seen faintly traced in Melway 164 H 2 and 3; the left half of Melway 164 H4 was part of 83A.

This was the most northerly part of the parish of Bittern east of Hendersons Rd and was in the Flinders and Kangerong Shire. Just across the Warringine Creek was Hastings (in the parish of Tyabb and Shire of Mornington of which Councillor Peddle was elected President in August 1879.)

Henry Peddle was only ever assessed in the east riding of the Shire of Flinders and Kangerong, never in the Centre Riding of which Dromana was a part. Therefore, I presume the letter read to council was written by Mr Pidota, a man much discussed in local histories but seemingly never in newspapers (perhaps because they never got his name right!) This would explain why Mr Watkin (sic) was also affected.

George Meldrum Henderson's last assessment was in 1886.

DROMANA. During the recent thunder storm a valuable cow belonging to Mr. Henderson,butcher of Dromana was killed by lightning. The animal was grazing in a small paddock on the side of Arthur's seat at the time the accident occurred. There is no doubt of death having been caused by the electric fluid ; the symptoms being unmistakeable.(P.3,South Bourke and Mornington Journal, 13-2-1878.)


Oh, Peter Pidota exists after all! The township boundary has just been mentioned in this entry.
A matter of considerable importance to a number of ratepayers of Flinders and Kangerong Shire came before the Council at the meeting on Saturday last. Mr. R. Watkins alleged that Councillor Henderson had made an opening from drain on public land so as to divert the water on to his own land thereby swamping his own land , submerging his neighbours' land, greatly to their detriment. Captain Pidoto also spoke of the serious damage done to his property by the action of Councillor Henderson. What action the Council mean to take is not yet known, but it would appear by the 400th section part 16 Local Government Act, that the Councillor's liable to make good the drain so diverted. and to a penalty not exceeding 20.... A petition was presented by Councillor McLear; praying that the boundary of the present township of Dromana might be so extended as to include the jetty and other places of business. The petition was signed by a number of owners of land in the township, and also by nearly all the owners of land sought to be incorporated. Notice of motion was given for the consideration of the matter at the next meeting of the Council.

THIS DAY Kirk's Bazaar
To Racing Men, Shippers for India, and Others
M'CULLOCH, CAMPBELL, and Co have received instructions from Mr Geo M Henderson, Dromana, to SELL by AUCTION, on Thursday, May 29, at twelve o'clock,The thoroughbred race mare Miss Jane by L L ,
by Touchstone out of Sunbeam, by The Hermit (imp ) She is half sister to the noted horse Flinders and Lady Somerville.(P. 2, Argus, 29-5-1879.)
Lady Somerville and Lord Somerville were owned by Alf Jones of the Almond Bush Stud at Somerville. He and Hodgins were two of the three Canadians who supplied wood to the "Liverpool" anchored well offshore in Canadian Bay.

Was this George's father?
HENDERSON -On the 1st inst., at Dromana, Victoria,
James Henderson formerly of Kirkcaldy, Scotland, aged 78 years. Home papers please copy.
(P.1, Argus, 20-1-1875.)
His mother?
The death occurred here on Tuesday of Mrs Henderson, a very old lady. Deceased had been ailing for a very long time,and was 82 years of age. She leaves behind a grown-up family, one of her sons living at present near Rosebud. The funeral took place at the Dromana cemetery, Mr Welling, the local Presbyterian minister, con- ducting the burial service.((P.2, Mornington Standard, 21-1-1905.)
The son was probably Lawrence Henderson who had 105 acres, 31CD, Wannaeue in 1900.This was granted to Dromana pioneer, John Townsend, and bounded by Hove Rd, Rosebud Pde, Waterfall Gully Rd and Bayview/Old Cape Schanck Rd.

DEATH. HENDERSON. - On 17th inst., at Dromana, Juliana Elizabeth Henderson, in her 83rd year. Relict of the late James Henderson, C.E., Glasgow. (P.2, Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle, 19-1-1905.)

Finally, I wonder if George was related to William Henderson after whom Henderson Rd (southern extension of Somerville's Jones Rd and Tyabb's Boes Rd) was probably named, who later moved to Frankston-Cranborne Rd.

POSTSCRIPT. I tried a google search for HENDERSON,DROMANA CEMETERY. Gemma would be a feminine version of James so I presume that Gemma Wiseman would be descended from blacksmith,James Wiseman, one of Red Hill's earliest pioneers. Gemma's website has a photo of William Henderson's gravestone and she has written the following comment.

May 1, 2012 - Dromana Cemetery is not far from my home on the Mornington ... Was James Henderson's brother the only connection with Dromana? Strange ..

So I console myself with a few zoomed views of nearby graves.
This crumbling grave is right at the entrance gate of the cemetery.
(INSCRIPTION. William Henderson M.I.C.E., born at Glasgow,Scotland,24-1-1854. Entered into rest Wannaeue Victoria 11-12-1898.)

William Henderson was a civil engineer from Glasgow, specialising in designing waterworks.
It was in that capacity he emigrated and became well known in Victoria for his skills.
Excerpt from ICE (Institution of Civil Engineers)
Mr. Hendersonâs connection with the Colony of Victoria commenced in the year 1886, when he was engaged in making
reports and estimates for irrigation projects under the instructions
of the Royal Commission on Water-Supply. He was then
appointed executive engineer to the Victorian Water-Supply
Department, in which capacity he designed and superintended the
construction of national irrigation works in the district of
Goulburn. He was also engaged in preparing a report and
estimates for a supply of water for domestic and stock purposes
over about 17,000 square miles in the Mallee District. He retired
from the service of the Victorian Water-Supply Department in
1895, and started to practise on his own account as a hydraulic
engineer.
Shortly afterwards, he was struck down with paralysis and died at the age of 44 in his brother's home near Dromana.
What I wonder is, where was his private practice? Dromana?
The Mallee district, where James mainly worked, is in the far north of Victoria.
Dromana is in the far south.
Was James Henderson's brother the only connection with Dromana?
Strange to find such a large memorial to a public figure who may not have lived in the area.
