THE COUNSELS OF DROMANA AND SOMERVILLE, MORNINGTON PENINSULA, VIC., AUST.

From my CHRONOLOGY OF BURIALS AT DROMANA (on ITELLYA'S HISTORY STORAGE BOX Facebook page due to difficulties submitting in the journal.)

24-10-1947. MISS CATHERINE COUNSEL.
COUNSEL.-Requiem Mass for the repose of the soul of the late Miss CATHERINE COUNSEL will be celebrated at the Church of the Immaculate Conception,corner Glenferrie and Burwood roads. Haw-thorn. TOMORROW (Friday) at 9 a.m.The Funeral will leave the church at the conclusion of Mass for the Dromana Cemetery, arriving there at 11.30 a.m.
COUNSEL. — On October 21. At 6 Wattle-road. Hawthorn, Catherine, only daughter of the late Frank and Anne Counsel,loved sister of France (deceased). Late of Dromana. Requiescat In pace. (Both, P.9, The Age, 23-10-1947.)

"In the 1860's, William Grace grew grapes for the manufacture of wine (on "Gracefield.) Several members of the Counsel family tended his vines, which, it was said, were ruined by phyllooxera.(P. 39, A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA.)

Joseph Lawrence Counsel and his wife, Mary Cecilia, were certainly residents of the area before 1878. (Source not quoted for a reason.) In 1879, (and probably till 1884*) Richard Councel was assessed on 250 acres which was certainly "Gracefield" and Charles B.Counsel on 454 acres and buildings, Kangerong. Charles had received the grant for crown allotment 21A, Kangerong of 121 acres 1 rood 27 perches on 27-6-1876. It was north of Mclroys Rd and east of Bowrings Rd with Melway 161 D10 indicating its northern portion. Charles was probably leasing land to the west later granted to Thomas Appleyard.

FROM MY GRACEFIELD JOURNAL.
Gracefield, crown allotment 5, section 3, of 249 acres 1 rood and 34 perches (249.4625 acres) was granted to William Grace.It was bounded by Boundary Rd, with 291 Boundary Rd indicating its south east corner, Arthurs Seat Rd and Caldwell Rd.

In 1872, Richard Counsel was assessed on 250 acres and a 5 roomed house. His assessment in the previous year had been on 121 acres, almost certainly crown allotment 21A, Kangerong of 121 acres 1 rood and 27 perches, granted to C.Counsel on 27-6-1876, and fronting the north side of McIlroys Rd (No. 146) and including Melway 161 D10.
In 1884 James McKeown was assessed on 215 acres,Balnarring (i.e. 73 A and B, later known as Glenbower,the name of McKeown's house, and Wildwood.) *In 1885, he was assessed on 250 acres, Kangerong (Gracefield) having sold his Balnarring land to the Sheehan family.

Charles B.Counsel was Richard's son and the sister of Catherine who died in 1839 (according to http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/…/…/2004-04/1081991509) after whom Frank's daughter was probably named. Had the Counsels come from Tasmania? Obviously.
Richard Counsel married Catherine Doyle in Hobart - 1834.*

Family Notices
The Mercury (Hobart, Tas. : 1860 - 1954) Thursday 10 May 1883 p 1 Family Notices
... Montana " COUNSEL-MORRIS -April 9, 1883, at Hawthorn, Victoria, by the Rev. E. Nolan, S.J., Charles B. Counsel, Dromana, youngest son of Richard Counsel, Emerald Hill (late chief draughtsman Crown Lands), to Kate Louise, youngest daughter of the late Captain James Morris, of Hobart,
Their fifth child "John Francis Counsel 1847 - 1930 married Ann Counsel 1875*" was certainly the late Miss Catherine Counsel's father (see death notice.)
* From the same rootsweb thread.

At the age of about 48 Frank Counsel's chess war with Joseph William Hazledine (retired Rosebud teacher and now Dromana's Registrar) began, and continued for years on the chessboard and in the Mornington Standard.

CHESS.
Mr. Frank Counsel, of Dromana, who issued through these columns, a challenge to play any lady or gentleman in the Shire of Flinders and Kangerong, best three out of five games, for the "chess championship" of the
shire, had not to wait long for an accepted (sic, acceptance) of his challenge. Mr. J. W.Hazledine of the same town expressed his desire to meet Mr. Counsel, and the contest took place last week at Arthur's Seat Hotel, one game being played each evening. The result was that Mr.Hazledine succeeded in winning the first, fourth, and fifth games, whilst the other two were won by Mr.. Counsel.
'Mr. Hazledine was adjudged the winner by Mr. L. Murphy, who acted as referee.
(P.3, Mornington Standard, 28-11-1895.)

By 1910, Frank was waging another war- against Mt Cooke's fervent support of Mr Irvine in the seat of Flinders in the pages of the Mornington Standard. Frank seems to have been very well educated and it shows in his many letters to the editor concerning politics.

Miss Catherine's namesake aunt was one of Richard Counsel's two daughters who became nuns (according to the rootsweb information.)

The habit was assumed by Miss Catherine Counsel and Miss Margaret Doogan, both also natives of Victoria. Miss Counsel is third daughter of Richard Counsel, Esq., late chief draughtsman in the Crown Lands Offices; she is cousin to L.Counsel, Esq., Collector of Inland Revenues for Ireland, and also to P.Sarsfield Counsel, Esq., B.A., barrister-at-law, Trinity College, Dublin. She takes in religion the name of Sister Mary of St. Ignatius,(P.14, Advocate, 28-8-1875.)

Sister Mary did die in 1939 as claimed on the rootsweb page.
Recent Death SISTER MARY OF ST. IGNATIUS
Advocate (Melbourne, Vic. : 1868 - 1954) Thursday 1 June 1939 p 34 Article
... Recent Death SISTER MARY OF ST. IGNATIUS The Good Shepherd Convent, Abbotsford, lost one of the ... oldest members of the Community on May 23, when Sister Mary of St. Ignatius Counsel was called to her .

Richard Counsel probably lived at Emerald Hill while working at the Crown Lands Department but his fondness for a drink led to his dismissal in 1878. The obituary of Charles Bede Counsel gives interesting information about Charles and his father.

MR. CHARLES BEDE COUNSEL
On Wednesday, June 21, the funeral took place at the Springvale Cemetery of Mr. Charles Bede Counsel, the last surviving son of the late Richard Counsel, who was brought from Ireland by the Government to survey the greater part of South Australia.
Born in Adelaide, Mr. Counsel came to Victoria at the age of five years and remained here up to the time of his death. Mr. Counsel was very successful as an auctioneer and estate agent, and, later, was a most popular representative of some of the leading firms of Melbourne, and was a member of the Commercial Travellers' Association for about forty years.

His popularity as a lecturer and elocutionist was very great. At the age of fifteen years he was chosen from all scholars of the public schools to recite the ode of welcome to the Duke of Edinburgh in the year 1867, as recorded in the "Argus" of that date. The late Mr. Counsel was educated at St. Patrick's College, East Melbourne, and his last public appearance was at the dinner tendered to Cardinal MacRory, when,being the oldest member of the college,he was called upon to present his Eminence with a souvenir of his visit to Victoria.

Owing to severe reverses in the land boom, the latter part of his life was spent in retirement. He is survived by his widow and grown-up family. His remains were borne from St. Joseph's Church, Malvern, by his son and grandsons at the end of the Requiem Mass, which was served by his youngest grandson, John Walsh. His sister, the late Sister Ignatius, who was 65 years in the Abbotsford Convent,predeceased him three weeks ago.
R.I.P. (P.26, Advocate, 6-7-1939.)

THE COUNSELS OF SOMERVILLE.
The Counsel mystery deepened when I found that a Richard Counsel had died at Somerville, an Edward Counsel of the same place was a composer and that the bones of a Miss Catherine Counsel had been stolen from Trafalgar cemetery.

I went back to the rootsweb post and confirmed that the Somerville Counsels were related to the Dromana family.
"Researching the descendants of Laurence Counsel & Mary Tierney married circa 1790 - Louth? - Ireland.
Children: Richard, Peter, Ann, Judith & Lawrence arrived Tasmania "Norval" 1832. Another son Loughlin arrived Victoria mid 1800's with I believe, 2 of his children plus some nieces/nephews."

Next I googled EDWARD COUNSEL, SOMERVILLE and the fragments fell into place.
The Sad Life (and Death) of Kitty Counsel | Gippsland| Odd Australian ...
www.oddhistory.com.au/…/the-sad-life-and-death-of-kitty-co…/
"Miss Catherine Mary Counsel was a tiny, sweet natured and deeply religious woman who spent most of her life as a housekeeper for wealthy families in and around Melbourne. Known as Kitty by her friends, her life was inconspicuous, she is never mentioned in newspapers, difficult to find in electoral rolls and barely rates a mention in death notices. Her life may have not have been noteworthy but it was the bizarre happenings after her death that caused me to research this diminutive lady.

Little Kitty came from a well respected family.* Although of Irish stock her grandfather, Loughlin Counsel was a surveyor and civil engineer in Southampton. His father and siblings had emigrated to Australia in the early 1800s, settling mainly in Tasmania but Loughlin and his family but didn’t arrive until the mid 1850’s. Kitty’s cousin was Edward Albert Counsel who became a surveyor, civil engineer and administrator in the Apple Isle.

Kitty’s father, Edward Counsel, was difficult to track at first, but eventually I discovered that he was a writer and musician. In 1875 at the age of 42, he married a relation of his stepsister’s, a musician by the name of Mary Josephine Gannon at Ballarat. In 1880 they had their first child, Edward Loughlin who sadly died at 4 months old. In 1882 they were graced with their second and only child to reach maturity, Kitty.

MaximsToday, Edward is considered a philosophical genius and his book which he published in 1889 called, Maxims: Political, Philosophical and Moral is considered a masterpiece. Some of his famous quotes include: “We live as we die, and die as we live”, “Reason often overturns experience” and “Success is a hidden jewel, and is found but by a few.” With his wife Mary, he also wrote numerous musical scores, including The Melodies of Erin. Although brilliant, his work was never fully recognised during his lifetime and it seems that his daughter never received any royalties or payment during her lifetime.

Edward’s father (Kitty’s grandfather) was Loughlin Counsel who had extensive land holdings in the Somerville area of the Mornington Peninsula. Loughlin passed away in 1875 and left more than 1000 acres to his children and stepchildren. Edward was the beneficiary of 213 acres plus a large number of shares in The Colonial Bank of Australasia.

After Edward and Mary’s wedding, they moved to Somerville and it was there that little Kitty was born. When Kitty was 12 years old her mother died and Edward seemed to become unhinged, writing rambling letters to local councils and newspapers. Shortly afterwards he simply stopped writing altogether. Edward passed away in 1909 in Somerville and his death was barely noted in the newspapers. I can’t find a will for Edward so I have no idea what became of his land or property but by 1909 Kitty was working as a housekeeper in Surrey Hills.

From this moment on, Kitty’s life was one of predictability. She worked as a housekeeper in Surrey Hills until 1924. In 1931 she is on the electoral roll in Kew and her occupation is listed as household duties. In 1949 she was working for a family in the Hampton/ Brighton area. In 1954, she was housekeeping for a young parish priest by the name of Father Daly at Orbost in eastern Victoria. In 1955 when Father Daly was transferred to Trafalgar, Kitty went with him. In February of 1955, at the age of 73, she was admitted to the West Gippsland Hospital in Warragul having suffered a stroke. A few days later she died and was buried at the Trafalgar Cemetery.
It was after Kitty’s death that her story becomes rather strange. " etc.

One interesting point was that Frank and Ann Counsel, whose daughter's burial started this voyage of discovery, were wrongly recorded as Kitty's parents.

JAMES PATRICK MAIN.

Hi ---. Can you tell me where Main's quarry was? was there one? Where was Main's Bridge?

REPLY 1.
"Kerr's Almanac for 1841 lists Moonee Ponds* occupiers. They were ......., Patrick Main who built Main's bridge (later known as Flemington bridge) over Moonee Ponds Creek, ...... (P. 4, Andrew Lemon's THE STOPOVER THAT STAYED.)

*Moonee Ponds in early days meant anywhere near the creek but two historians have not understood this. In the same book, Lemon includes a lengthy passage about John Cochrane's Glenroy Farm (which was never in the City of Essendon area). In THE GOLD THE BLUE, a history of the Lowther Hall school, A.D.Pyke assumed that Peter McCracken's Stewarton was in the Moonee Ponds area but it was section 5, parish of Tullamarine, later renamed as Gladstone Park.

14-12-1849. Mains Bridge (Flemington) washed away. (Sam Merrifield notes.)
(From Bob Chalmers' THE ANNALS OF ESSENDON VOLUME 1, which Bob gave me in response to the donation of my EARLY LANDOWNERS: PARISH OF DOUTTA GALLA.)

The following comes from my EARLY LANDOWNERS. Section 12 Doutta Galla was bounded by Buckley Street west, then known as Braybrook road because it led to Solomon's Ford, from the Hoffmans Rd corner to the Rachelle Rd corner and a northern boundary indicated by an eastern extension of Clarks Rd, East Keilor including Farrell St in Melway 15 K11.

"SECTION 12 (East Keilor west of Rachelle Rd, Niddrie south of Farrell St.)
SECTION 12, MAIN’S ESTATE.
Bounded by Rachelle Rd., Buckley St., Hoffmans Rd. and the latitude of the north side of Farrell St., this was granted to James Patrick Main in 1846. He was probably Patrick who built the first bridge over the Moonee Ponds Creek at Flemington, still known as Main’s bridge after it had been swept away by floodwaters and rebuilt.
James P.Main, “ builder and settler, Moonee Ponds” in 1841 and 1847, may have been living on Main’s Estate. At the latter date, Thomas Anderson, dairyman, was on “Main’s Estate, Moonee Ponds”. I wonder if Thomas was related to James Anderson (a later occupant of Main’s Estate.)

SECTION 12 TITLE INFORMATION.
THE GRANT.
A COPY OF THE GRANT FOR SECTION 12 WAS FOUND IN SKETCH OF TITLE 15377, CONCERNING C.B. FISHER’S APPLICATION FOR TITLE OF McPHAIL’S “ROSE HILL”. IT STARTS:

PORT PHILLIP DISTRICT
L A N D P U R C H A S E
Suburban Lot
GRANTEE James Patrick Main VICTORIA, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland,Defender of the Faith and so forth:
TO ALL to whom these presents shall come,
GREETING: -
WHEREAS in conformity with the laws now in force for the sale of Crown Lands in our Territory of New South Wales, and our Royal Instructions under Our Signet and Sign Manual issued in pursuance thereof JAMES PATRICK MAIN of Melbourne has become the purchaser of the Land hereinafter described for the Sum of Eight hundred and thirty two pounds Sterling….

DATE 30 October 1846
COUNTY Bourke
ACRES 640

The 832 pounds did not include the yearly quit rent of one peppercorn (if demanded) and Her Majesty reserved such parts and so much of the said land as may hereafter be required for making Public Ways, Canals, or Railroads… AND ALSO All Sand, Clay, Stone, Gravel and Indigenous Timber….

....... In an anti- clockwise direction from the north east corner, we can then account for most of Main’s Estate:
i.e. Springbank (J.Wilson), Blair’s purchase, Rosehill Rd, and Rose Hill east of the creek, then heading north, Sinclair’s Farm, Rosehill Rd, lot 6 (1848 Laverty, McPhail, 1868 Hoffman) and lot 8 (1848 Roberts, 1865 Beale). The only area yet to be detailed is that occupied by the Niddrie Quarry.

LOT 10, COX’S FARM.
On 12-11-1850, Thomas Cox bought lot 10 from the Bears for 96 pounds. Consisting of 50 acres 1 rood 22 perches, this land started about 40 metres north of Noga Ave and included the southern 1/3 of the quarry site (K 876). It is likely that this was the 50 acre farm accessed from North Pole Rd, which James Anderson was leasing in 1900-1 and had occupied before moving onto Springbank, but it is also possible that Anderson’s “North Pole Road” farm was lot 8.
Other memorials concerning this land are:
1st series index- none.
2nd series.
307 359. 29-1-1883. Lease to John Beale for 10 years at a rent of 25 pounds p.a.
350 207. 8-5-1888. Contract and conditions of sale to speculator, G.W.Taylor, who also contracted to buy 18 C and D at about this time. (See the reasons why and the outcome in the section 18 entry.) Taylor agreed to pay L5542/12/6, which would have been equivalent to nearly 222 years rent under the terms of John Beale’s lease. C.B.Fisher’s purchase price of 3000 pounds for the 112 5/8 acre Rose Hill in January 1882 showed that the land boom was starting but Taylor showed, by paying almost twice as much for less than half as much land, that the Boom was flying along in top gear! Obviously Taylor forfeited part payments and the land, as he did with so many other farms.
385 168. Mortgage of the share and interest of Elizabeth Julia Whelan in 50 acres, Doutta Galla to John Butler Besley and Henry Besley of Bruthen for L 154/16/8. Elizabeth was the daughter of Thomas Cox and had inherited the land in the will of Thomas Cock (known as Cox), of which Ellen and William James Cock (known as Cox) were the exectrix and executor.
This memorial is the only entry in the E.J.Whelan index and no memorial concerning lot 10 is in the J.B. and H.Besley index so it is impossible to tell whether lot 10 was regained or forfeited.
LOT 12? COLLIER’S FARM.
James Collier bought the remaining 45* acres 2 roods 3 perches from the Bears on 14-2-1849 for 87 pounds cash. (*Called 55 acres in the Bear index but the memorial, which must have been written with poor quality ink, does say forty five.) I’d be willing to bet my last dollar that this was lot 12. It was north of Cox’s land and covered the rest of the quarry site (to a latitude indicated by the northern boundary of the Peter Kirchner Reserve east of the creek). Collier’s index reveals that he also had land on 6C (bisected by Puckle St/Holmes Rd). Another memorial concerns 39 acres in Doutta Galla (perhaps the land on 6C). Other memorials are:
K 750. 14-10-1850. Equitable Mortgage of 45 acres 2 roods 3 perches commencing 67 chains from the s/w corner of section 12 and extending 1406 links to the northern boundary of section 12. Charles Payne paid 35 pounds to James Collier.
236 954. 27-8-1860. Equitable Mortgage of the same land to secure to Margaret Harriss the repayment of 160 pounds she had lent to James Collier. I have been unable to determine whether Collier was able to repay the money or forfeited the land. However, this mortgage has helped to locate a farm mentioned by Angela Evans in “Keilor Pioneers: Dead Men Do Tell Tales”. Lawrence Kelly seems to have settled in Keilor by 1861. (Keilor’s ratebook of 1868 shows that he was leasing 18C of 163 acres from J.P.Bear.) By 1875, according to the above book, he was also renting 48 acres at Spring Gully from Margaret Harris. This would seem to indicate that Collier did lose his block if Margaret Harris still had ownership 15 years later.
The acreage of Collier’s Farm does seem to have been 45 83/160 acres. It is likely that Patrick Joseph Corcoran was leasing it in 1900-1 (part lot 0 section 12, 46 acres). Collier’s Farm was described as 46 acres when the late Alexander Smith’s land west of Spring Gully was advertised for sale on 13-3-1916.
N.B. The entry for Collier’s Farm in “Sam Merrifield’s House Names Index” edited by Lenore Frost, is wrong. The farm described is actually Smith’s Norwood. (See section 9.)
376 185. James Collier’s will of 26-1-1866 left all his (unspecified) estate to his daughter Mary, subject to an annual payment to James Collier’s wife Margaret. James died on 15-12-1868. These details were recorded much later on 13-8-1892 (376 185) and Mary was Mrs Amiss. The arrangements resulted from a marriage settlement between Mary and John Haines Amiss (soon to marry Mary) and the executors, James Jenning and John Cunningham, on 28-7-1879."

As J.P.Main was a resident NEAR the Moonee Ponds Creek in 1841, he may have had a depasturing licence south of the Foster brothers' Leslie Park" (Tullamarine/Keilor Park area) for which they obtained the lease in 1840 according to Sam Merrrifield's Annals. In this case, Mains quarry might have been the forerunner of the Niddrie Quarry on Main's Estate or on land a chain north east from Collier's Farm, i.e.

"ALLOTMENT C OF SECTION 18.
Bounded by Milleara Rd., Clarks Rd. and Spring St. and consisting of 162 ¾ acres, 18C was granted to D.T.Kilburn. He had also received the grant for lot 13 of section 4. Lawrence Kelly was leasing this property by 1868 and by 1875 was also leasing Collier’s Farm (at the n/w corner of section 12), which adjoined the s/e corner of 18C.
The Geological Survey map of 1860 shows a quarry used for road metal on 18C near Keilor Rd. This quarry and the ones near the s/w corner of the Essendon Aerodrome site may have been operating since, or before 1842, when Denis Larry was listed in the directory as a quarryman of Doutta Galla. The one on Kelly’s farm may, however, have been opened by Samuel Charles Brees*, who stated, on 20-1-1853, “Quarries are likewise opened at several parts of the line for the bottoming and levelling of the road.”
(*Brees was in charge of the construction of Mt Alexander Rd to the diggings and built the first substantial bridge at Keilor in 1854. A street in East Keilor was named after him by Garnet Price.)"

TROVE.
Unfortunately the two references from the 1840's give no indication of where the quarry might have been. Alexander Kennedy, in the second article, who not long afterwards built the Inverness Hotel at Melway 177 H11, could have been returning to Melbourne from his station near Guildford via Keilor, given that there was no great road to the diggings through Tullamarine in early 1847. I have referred previously to the vagueness of Moonee Ponds as a description of location in early days.

"SERIOUS ACCIDENT.—On Wednesday evening, as Mr. Alexander Kennedy, a settler
upon the Loddon, was proceeding with his son,servants, and drays into town, he found it necessary to encamp in the vicinity of the Moonee Ponds. This was about sundown, and Mr.Kennedy having business in town of a pressing
nature, departed on horseback, leaving his son in charge of the encampment. (He wasn't in Melbourne when his son arrived next day.)

However, about 11 o'clock yesterday morning,as Mr. Hogbin, brother-in-law of Mr. Evans, of the Duke of Kent, Lonsdale-street, was passing Maine's Quarries, on his way to town, he saw a party lying in the bush upon his back,...."

As there were no results for Main's quarry in the 1850's and the results in the 1860's weren't relevant, I tried quarry keilor and found:

WANTED, strong HORSES with drays to cart stone. Apply at Dick's Quarry, Keilor road. John Finlay.(P.8, Argus, 25-2-1860.)

Early quarries were almost always on the banks of creeks where there was plenty of freestone, so Dick's quarry was probably near Spring Creek which gives the name to Spring St, the northern end of the government road, followed largely by Rachelle Rd,which separated John Pascoe Fawkner's 11B Doutta Galla from Mains Estate. It is possible that 17CD which separated Mains Estate from Keilor Rd contained another quarry utilised by Samuel Brees in 1854. JOHN DICK was much involved with these two crown allotments.

Back to my EARLY LANDOWNERS. Had Main's quarry become Dick's quarry?

"17 C and D.
W.Nicholson was granted lots D and C, a total of 188 ¾ acres. A grocer who became premier, he was obviously a speculator. He received the grants for Ardmillan/Trinifour, Fairview and Springfield, all handily located on the route to Mount Alexander, which in a bit over a year would carry throngs of diggers. Land Plan 10509 shows that the western boundary of this land was about 140 feet west of Spring St and L.P. 10508 shows that the southern boundary was about 144 feet south of Grandview Rd.
The land was owned in 1868 by Joseph Nicholson, who had 195 acres; the extra 6 or 7 acres possibly being on lot B of section 11, south of Clarks Rd. Joseph does not seem to have been related to William Nicholson and did not inherit the property; he purchased the “Fairview Farm of 200 acres” in 1863. Joseph died in about 1879 but his widow, Sarah, aged over 60,was still using the farm for grazing purposes in 1888.
17C and 17D TITLE INFORMATION.
On 15-3-1854, W.Nicholson sold his grant to John Dick for 10000 pounds (Y 217). On the next day, Dick mortgaged 17 C and D to John Nicholson for 5000 pounds (9 140).
Confusingly, three transactions, concerning 17 C and D, were memorialised between John Dick and John Nicholson on 23-5-1859. They were:
79 402. Reconveyance of 17 C and D to John Dick.
79 404. John Dick mortgages 17 C and D for 3000 pounds.
134 296. Reconveyance by Endorsement to John Dick.
On 22-7-1861, John Dick conveyed an Equity of Redemption of 17 C and D to William Nicholson for 100 pounds (108 666). The index for John Dick has no further mention of 17 C and D. Neither is the land further mentioned in William Nicholson’s index. His will of 20-12-1864 (158 687) and the following memorial, dated 24-3-1866, mention a city hotel and county of Evelyn land but not the 188 ¾ acres of 17 C and D. When Dick bought 17 C and D, he was described as a farmer of The Merri Creek.
Sketch of Title 25560, resulting from Sarah Nicholson’s application for title in 1889, shows that William Nicholson regained ownership on 22-7-1861 (registered on 23-7-1861) and that on 29-10-1863, he sold 17 C and D to Joseph Nicholson for 1500 pounds. Joseph Nicholson died intestate on 24-7-1878.

Joseph Nicholson's extra 6 or 7 acres in 1868 may have been Dick's quarry and part of Collier's Farm.Was it earlier called MAIN'S QUARRY?

REPLY 2.
IN ADDITION TO MY PREVIOUS REPLY.
It seems that James Patrick Main (1802-1876) had been transported to Van Dieman's Land for life. Family researchers have not yet found records of his conditional pardon. His wife's name is possibly wrongly given as Isabella in one source; it appears to have been Mary.Her name might have been Mary Isabella. (I've forgotten her maiden surname.)Isabella was one of their daughters. It seems most of their children were born in Tassie, the last born in Melbourne in 1840 which indicates that the convict was indeed our James Patrick Main. In most convict records he is named as Patrick Main and he may have been still using this name (as recorded by Andrew Lemon) when he built Main's bridge at Flemington in 1839.

I speculated that Main might have had a depasturing licence covering a bigger area, including section 12 Doutta Galla, and his quarry might have been on the parts of sections 18 or 17 adjoining Main's Estate.

The following strongly suggests that section 12 Doutta Galla was the pre-emptive right of Main's Station for which the lease was cancelled in about 1847. Main's quarry must have been well-known by 1843 and was probably established by the time he built the bridge at Flemington. He built (or supplied the material for-forget which)the original Princes Bridge, probably using the stone from his Estate/station. All I have to establish now is five miles from Melbourne.

TO STAND THIS SEASON,
AT Mr Main's station, Stone Quarries, the Entire Horse, SAMPSON,
Five years old, sired by the Van Diemen's Land Company, from the imported horse, Duncan Gray,out of a Suffolk mare, is a dark chestnut horse of great power and fine action, stands sixteen hands high, rising six years old, has an excellent temper, and is well known as one of the best draught horses
in this part of the colony.
Sampson may be seen at the Horse Bazaar regularly on each Monday and Friday, where any information relative to him can be obtained.
Good Paddocks, within five miles of Melbourne,and every care taken, but without responsibility, and an allowance of one mare in five to bona fide owners. Terms — etc. (P.4, Melbourne Times, 8-8-1843.)

To save a lot of time and measurement I looked at Melway key map 5. The 10 km (6.21371 miles)radius from Melbourne passes through the midpoint of the Buckley St frontage of Main's Estate. Therefore the south east corner of the estate (Buckley St-Hoffmans Rd corner) would have been one sixth of 5km less, about 5.4 miles from Melbourne. There is no way that the parts of sections 17 and 18 south of Keilor Rd could be described as being five miles from Melbourne so Main's quarry must have been on MAIN'S ESTATE, the nearest part of which was 5.4 miles from Melbourne as the crow flies.Collier's Farm may indeed have been the site on which it was established. In 1843, Main's homestead was probably near the south east corner* of the estate and it might have later become Dugald McPhail's Rose Hill homestead. (*Nobody in their right mind would build a homestead near a quarry.)

I referred in my last message to Spring St (the northern end of the government road between c/a 11b and Mains Estate getting its name from the nearby creek. It is officially named Steeles Creek but one of its tributaries was Spring Creek in Tullamarine which gave the name to the Fosters' "Springs" and several farms to the south such as Spring Park, Springfield, James Wilson's Spring Farm on Main's Estate and James Robertson's Spring Hill (later renamed Aberfeldie after his mansion.) The areas near the creek in Tullamarine (e.g. David O'Niall's Lady of the Lake Hotel) and Mains Estate were both called Springs or The Springs circa 1850 but this caused confusion so the latter area was then referred to as Springfield. South of Buckley St, the creek was/is referred to as Rose Creek, hence the name of Dugald McPhail's "Rosehill" farm and the name of the eastern continuation of Dinah Pde.

The creek bisects Main's Estate and as stated earlier, most early quarrying was done on the banks of creeks. (I really should have written streams. George Spottiswoode, after whom Spotswood is named, took stone quarried near the Saltwater River along that river to Melbourne. I wouldn't mind betting that John Dick had earlier been quarrying on the Merri (Rocky) Creek before he established or took over the quarry on (near) Keilor road.)

GEORGE ROBERT DAWS, A PIONEER OF DROMANA, VIC., AUST.
One of the pay to view scavengers let slip that G.R. died in 1899 so I was able to find his death notice.

As I have accidentally lost my findings, it may be best to present this journal as a chronology.

1860.
When George Robert Daws moved to Kingston in 1867, he appears to have followed a relative to that place. William Allison who became a coach driver and then a Dromana blacksmith, and married widow, Catherine Wainwright, publican of the Arthurs Seat Hotel, in about 1887, may have been a descendant of Daws' business partner.

1866.
There is no known connection between this George Robert Dawes and the one mentioned in 1867 unless there was a Deep Creek at Bullarook*. The digitisation has not been corrected in order to illustrate why this result was not found with a George Robert or G.R.Daws search but a George Daws search.
A publican's license, for a house at Subaatopol Hiil, Bullarook, was granted to George Ilobert Dawes, (P.1, The Ballarat Star, 24-10-1866.)

*POSTSCRIPT. There is a Deep Creek Road at Werona and a map search revealed that the Kingston-Werona road ran parallel to an unnamed creek which may have been Deep Creek. However there is no need to prove that the above hotel was the Deep Creek hotel because the Mr Boyd (owner of the hotel) who opposed the transfer of the licence in 1867 was probably W.Boyd of Bullarook and the Boyd family presence at Bullarook continued with M.Boyd of Bullarook gaining a soldier settlement farm in 1919. (BOYD, BULLAROOK search on trove.)

Most mentions of W.Boyd were in connection with the agricultural show.
"The Smeaton, Spring Hill and Bullarook agricultural society (dating from 1859) ran one of Victoria's most successful annual shows."

Why would George Robert Daws want to move to Kingston about seven months later?
Firstly "It is on the main road between Ballarat and Castlemaine" not on the south end of Black Swamp** Road which leads only to Bullarook. Secondly Kingston was probably the food bowl for the diggings near Ballarat. Thirdly, fortunes fluctuated on the diggings; when all the alluvial gold had been found, many diggers moved on to a new strike and even after mechanised mining (such as the William Tell at Bullarook) started, success was not immediate, and hampered by flooding etc. The only secure income was derived by carters (who certainly earned their money)and those who satisfied the diggers' hunger and thirst.

"Kingston is a rural township 7 km north-east of Creswick and 100 km north-west of Melbourne.

Kingston was beyond the alluvial gold mining in the Creswick district during the 1850s-60s, and just to the east of the deep lead mining which started with the Spring Hill lead in the 1870s. It was like Smeaton, providing agricultural land for cereals and grazing. A flourmill was built in Kingston in the early 1860s. A school was opened in the mechanics' institute at about the same time. (In nearby Spring Hill an Anglican school was opened in 1857.) Kingston was also the administrative centre of Creswick Shire until about 1948, 14 years after Creswick borough had been united with the shire.

Kingston was fortunately situated, with good agricultural land which suffered little disturbance from mining except to its west. The railway line from Creswick to Daylesford, via Kingston, opened in 1887 and ran until 1976." (Quotes from:
Kingston Township | Victorian Places
www.victorianplaces.com.au/kingston-township)

**Incidentally the name of Bullarook is almost certainly an aboriginal description of a swamp near a hill. As pointed out above, Bullarook is at the end of Black Swamp Rd. Tootgarook, named because of a swamp, means the growling of frogs and Bulla, according to I.W.Symonds in his "Bulla Bulla", means hill.



But the following shows that the Bullarook publican was definitely the Dromana pioneer unless the Advertiser's journalist was only guessing that the proud father was the former Bullarook publican.

The journalist was right! When 9 month old Emma died at Kingston she was buried at the New Creswick Cemetery. There was a definite Smith presence at Bullarook so George Robert Daws may have become acquainted with Elizabeth there. Emma was not necessarily their daughter. (See 1860.)

Bullarook is not on the main road to Ballarat (or anywhere) so why would there be a hotel there in 1866?
Bullarook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullarook
Bullarook is a locality in the Central Highlands in Victoria, near Ballarat. Bullarook was home to the William Tell Quartz Mining Co., a gold mining company which ...


1867.
The application of George Robert Dawes, for a transfer of the publican's license from the Deep Creek hotel to the Beehive hotel, Kingston, .was opposed by Mr Burton on behalf of Mr Boyd, the owner of the house at Deep Creek, and postponed till Friday next, (P.4, The Ballarat Star, 15-5-1867.)

A removal of licence from Deep Creek to the Beehive hotel, Kingston, was granted to George Robert Daws. (P.4, The Ballarat Star, 18-5-1867.)

Deep Creek would seem to have been near Bullarook. I originally thought that Kingston was in the area near the current bayside City of Kingston but it was near Ballarat.
"Kingston is a small town in rural Shire of Hepburn in Victoria, Australia. Kingston is located about 15 km from Creswick, just off the Midland Highway and is about 20 km from Daylesford. Kingston's post code is 3364.
Kingston was once a thriving gold mining town during the Victorian Gold Rush and became the administrative centre of the Creswick Shire. Kingston Post Office opened on 11 October 1858.[1] "(Wikipedia.)


1874 -1876.
In the last Finders Road District assessment of 13-6-1874, G.R.Daws was rated on a two roomed house on 322 acres in the parish of Balnarring that he was leasing from the Crown. Because ratepayers were listed in geographical order, it is almost certain that George was leasing crown allotments 90 and 91 Balnarring, fronting Shoreham Rd south of Oceanview Avenue, consisting of 322 acres 0 roods 19 perches, and granted to J.&J. Bayne on 4-7-1879.
1875. The Flinders and Kangerong Road Districts had merged to form the Flinders and Kangerong Shire. In its first assessment of 2-10-1875, George was rated on the same property although it was wrongly called 323 acres.
1876.George was joined by Edward Daws who may have been a brother. George was now rated on 34 acres and a building with a high net annual value of 35 pounds; this assessment being repeated in 1877. Edward was rated on 12 acres and 95 acres, Flinders and Kangerong and in 1877 just the 12 acres.

Alexander Haldan was operating Dromana's first post office by 1858. When he died, Walter Gibson gained appointment as postmaster and built a new post office (just west of Nelson Rudduck's Jetty Store which was on the west corner of Pier St.) SEE APPENDIX.RE POST OFFICE. Thus Mary Haldan's old post office became a mere store, as it remained during George Robert Daws' tenure. There was stern opposition to Gibson's site for the new post office and Mary unsuccessfully offered the old P.O. free to the government. She later moved to "Belmont" in Carlton, where her daughter was married. See my journal:

CHECK HOW LONG EDWARD STAYED.
Edward was assessed on 13 acres Kangerong (N.A V. 10 pounds) in 1877 and in 1878, no mention of George, nor Edward could be found. Typical! In 1879, both reappeared with Edward's 13 acres proving to be 12 acres Kangerong and one allotment west of McCulloch St in the township, the N.A.V. now being 14 pounds. In 1880, the township allotment was forgotten but in his last assessment, Edward's property still had the same value.


1877.
No assessment of Charles Barnett on his 36 acre triangular grant.
George's occupation was given as miner, as was Edward's. George was still rated on 34 acres, which I believe was still Charles Barnett's triangle west of today's Jetty Rd. It still, and till 1887, had a N.A.V. of 35 pounds.
Margaret B.Haldan, whose occupation was given as private lodging, was rated on one allotment and building, Dromana, the former post office, now Dromana Villa, which had a net annual value of 50 pounds.


(TRUSTEE, DAVEY'S GULLY)
I accidentally lost information when transferring the post I'd started on the HISTORY OF DROMANA TO PORTSEA Facebook page and DELETED!. Changing tacks every quarter of an hour, I'd fluked finding a trove article on a pay to view ancestry site that listed trustees whose appointments had been notified in the government gazette. At that time, I suspected that George was associated with Castlemaine and I think I was doing a GEORGE ROBERT DAWS, CASTLEMAINE google search. After "Castlemaine:" were listed some trustees who, no doubt, were appointed as trustees of some public property at Dromana. HAVE NO DOUBT THAT THE SOURCE IS THERE; I JUST CAN'T FIND IT AGAIN.
The trustees were, from memory: Walter Gibbon (Gibson), Peter Pidoto, George Robert Daws, Robert Caldwell, Daniel Nicholson and Charles Barnett. The others were all respected members of the community and the fact that in about four years George had been placed on a similar pedestal says a lot about him.
Walter Gibson built a Presbyterian Manse at his own expense, Peter played a prominent part in Dromana's trade with Melbourne, Robert Caldwell played a prominent part in Dromana getting a pier and Caldwell Rd is named after him, Daniel Nicholson was one of Dromana's two pre 1861 schoolteachers and became the registrar, Charles Barnett* was the grantee of the triangular 36 acre block west of Jetty Rd that I believe was George's 34 acres.
(*See the second item in the appendix.)

George nearly didn't survive in order to enjoy the respect he had earned.

A serious accident happened on Friday night last to the Schnapper Point coach on a decline leading into Davis' (sic) Gully* beyond Frankston. The brake unfortunately broke, and at the bottom of the decline two of the passengers were thrown off, but escaped with a few bruises. The horses then .ran up the incline on the other side, and the driver, known as "Dick," was next thrown off, and received some fractures of the ribs.
The greatest sufferer was Mr. Dawes (sic), of Dromana, who was thrown down the side of the gully, receiving some very severe fractures of the ribs, which impede the action of the lungs. The horses were brought to a stand-still by Mr. John Everard, who had occupied a seat beside the driver, and managed to keep his place. (P.2, South Bourke and Mornington Journal, 22-8-1877.)

* The Davey pre-emptive right of the Davey Kannanuke Run was between Old Mornington Rd and Port Phillip Bay, extending from the said gully (bottom left corner of Melway 101 J8) to Boundary (now Canadian Bay) Road. As the present highway did not exist, the coach would travel to Dromana via Old Mornington Rd, Mt Eliza Way- Wooralla Rd, and the three chain road (Moorooduc Rd.)

I learn that Mr. Dawes, of Dromana, who was so seriously injured in the frightful coach accident that occurred near Frankston eight days ago, is still lying in a precarious condition, very little hopes being entertained of his recovering.(Bendigo Advertiser (Vic. : 1855 - 1918) Monday 27 August 1877 p 2 Article)


1879.
George and Edward were still called miners. George still had the 34 acres (net annual value 35 pounds) but now had one allotment and building, Dromana, with the incredibly high N.A.V. of 50 pounds. This was the former post office.

DROMANA -Comfort and Economy -Dromana Villa is now ready for visitors.
G R Daws, proprietor, (late Mrs Haldan) (P.8, Argus, 30-1-1879.)

1880.
The 34 acre block and the old post office were combined in one assessment (net annual value 85 pounds.)

1881-1886
George's details were unchanged except that he was now a yoeman. In 1882 and 1883 he was a carpenter.

1887.
DAWS George Robert was now a boarding house keeper. He was rated only on 30 acres with a net annual value of 65 pounds. How could the rate collector describe him as a boarding house keeper without thinking it necessary to include the house he was keeping in the property description?
This was George Robert Daws' last assessment.

##################################################################
The Daws family which occupied "Carnarvon" many decades after the death of George Robert Daws, was not descended from G.R.Daws. This family was descended from Charles Pearson Daws, who may have been one of G.R.'s brothers.

COPY COMMENTS UNDER THE FLEMING STORE PHOTO ON THE DROMANA TO PORTSEA FACEBOOK PAGE.
ME.The Flemings lived on the west corner of Foote St and discovered ink wells from Alexander Haldan's post office, established by 1858 and used by the Haldans as a guest house called Dromana Villa when Walter Gibson established the new granite P.O. just west of Rudduck's store in about 1876. The Flemings lived in "Carnarvon" (photo, P.54, A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA.) It has been extended but one of the stone walls remains under the carport, as the current owners kindly showed me.

Andrew Davis After Grahame and Rosemary Daws left (the store near the site of the Arthurs Sest Hotel-itellya) around 1976 the next owners were the McIntosh family and then it was Andy Griffith. After the milk bar Grahame and Rosemary lived up the road in Codrington St (at Albey Brasser the concreters old house). Mum and Dad moved from Codrington St to McCrae in 1995 and they're still there today. Rod Daws Sue Stone

ME. Rod Daws. How nice to find another descendant of one of our pioneers (whose surname has been written countless times as DAWES in ratebooks, newspapers and, thus, in Colin McLear's history.) If Andrew had not posted the comment and mentioned Rod, I would never have twigged. I promise to spell it correctly in future. George Robert DAWS retained the Haldans' name of Dromana Villa for the house. I wonder who called it Carnarvon, the Flemings? Did you ever hear of George's brush with death in 1877?

Deborah Hiskins R__ G___ The Dawes (pretty sure with an "e") had the store after the Fleming's were not from Dromana. M;y parents Margaret (jnr) and Mike Fleming had the shop for 2 years and my grandparents Margaret (snr)and Arthur owned Carnarvon. After the shop was sold we moved into Carnarvon. Dad dug up several clay ink wells and broken clay pipes in the garden here. The original Carnarvon was originally purchased by my great grandparents Howard and Gertie SALTER in the 1920's as well as the next house in the street. Howard named the house but not sure where the name came from.(Margaret Fleming Snr was their daughter)

Margaret Fleming Deb, actually I spelt Daws with an e, but now I remember it didn't! Also regarding Carnarvon, several of the granite walls are still standing in the house, even though it's been renovated. This granite came from Dromana quarry and when the old house was pulled down, Mike (Fleming), remembers all the roof slate being dumped down the well at the rear of the house!

Andrew Davis I can confirm its Daws with no "e" and we are not descendants of George Robert Daws. Dads side of the family dating back to 1874 descended from Charles Pearson Daws of Llanelly* in Central Vic.

(*Postscript. This name was associated with Robert Smith of Bullarook who was NOT the father of Elizabeth Smith, who became George Robert Daws' wife, but may have been related to her. I can't remember whether Llanelly was the name of Robert's farm or birthplace.)

ME. Andrew Davis. Charles Pearson Daws might have been a brother of George Robert Dawes. The father of C.P. Daws was named George and the given name Robert was bestowed on one of C.P.'s descendants. Bertie Charles, a son of George Robert and Elizabeth Daws, may have been named after Charles Pearson Daws.(Bertie Charles Daws Dromana, Victoria, Australia

APPENDIX.
From my HERITAGE WALK, DROMANA journal.
THE POST OFFICE.
As stated previously,the Township was west of McCulloch St (to Burrell Rd, which despite the virtual cliff was supposed to connect the Esplanade and the north-south section of Latrobe Pde.) East of McCulloch St were crown allotments 1-8 of section 1 Kangerong.
In A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA, Colin McLear stated that the original post office was in a granite building named Carnarvon,situated on the corner of Foote St and Latrobe Pde.
"In the 19th century prospecting days about Dromana miners could sell their findings to Dawes who ran a store on the corner of Foote St. and Latrobe Parade in the first Carnarvon which stood there then. On the counter stood his gold scales in what was the first Dromana Post Office. (P.54 with photo.)

Despite the majority of permanent residents being tenants on the survey in the mid 1850's when the township site was decided, the centre of population was probably farther west with many timber getters working on Arthurs Seat. The zig-zagging Tower Rd, which was used as a boundary between the township's suburban allotments, may have been created by bullock drivers bringing timber to the coast by the shortest possible route. Codrington St, which divides township streets to the west running at right angles to the coast and those such as Verdon St, which don't, may have been a continuation of this track.

Another early track may have been between McLear Rd near the summit and Caldwell Rd, which formed the boundary between suburban allotments and William Grace's "Gracefield",granted in 1857. This track would have continued along McCulloch St,the eastern boundary of the township.

Despite the township being proclaimed in 1861, the suburban blocks of mostly 2 roods (half an acre) were being sold in about 1858. Richard Watkins, who is stated wrongly as establishing the Dromana Hotel in 1857 (actually 1862 not counting the slate roof) was in 1858 running Scurfield's hotel as well as selling Arthurs Seat timber (in competition with another firm.)

Proclamation of the township meant that the Crown would provide a school and a post office. Shortly afterwards, Robert Quinan and Daniel Nicholson were scrambling to have their private schools chosen as the Common School. Interestingly, many of those who signed the 9-3-1861 petition (P.132 A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA) were Survey residents. The private school near Wallaces Rd on the Survey had apparently closed after the death of the teacher's wife. With the school also west of McCulloch St, Survey children could pick up the mail on their way home from school, so the location of the post office was not a great problem.

On page 138, Colin McLear wrote:
From its original premises,the post office moved into another granite building of the same period,this time in the main shopping centre. These premises were owned by Walter Gibson and also incorporated brick from the Glenholme (sic) clay pits. In later years these offices were replaced by a used car yard.

I have been trying since I started this journal to find the second article about the removal/argument re the post office first seen years ago. It was found by accident when I was trying to find out whether Pattersons Lane had been renamed Wallaces Rd after a Wallace family. The first article was found when I unsuccessfully searched for a request from Water Gibson to the Flinders and Kangerong to have the township boundary altered to take in the area near the pier. (Perhaps that was in 1885 when Peter Pidoto's parents-in-law died? No!*)

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.
(South Bourke and Mornington Journal (Richmond, Vic. : 1872 - 1920) Wednesday 5 June 1878 p 2 Article)

DROMANA.
A strenuous effort is being made by one section of the community to have the post and telegraphic office removed to a site remote from the general traffic. The advocates of this movement argue that the post and tele-
graph office should be in the township, which is certainly right in the abstract, but the township of Dromana is anomalously situated, the jetty and principal places of business being some distances beyond its boundary.
The jetty, however, is naturally the convergent point, from all the traffic of the district. The other section of the inhabitants, therefore, argue that the post office is in the right place, being in close proximity to the centre of trade and feel that the proposed removal, if carried out, would, be injurious to the interests of the district at large. The Postmaster General has been interviewed by both sides, and a petition has been got
up for presentation by the removalists. The result remains to be seen.
(South Bourke and Mornington Journal (Richmond, Vic. : 1872 - 1920) Wednesday 12 June 1878 p 3 Article)

*PROOF OF THE SAYING:"YOU MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK."
If I had not decided to write a journal about Alex Haldan and hadn't suspected that Cr. George M.Henderson was a relative of Alexander's wife, I would never have discovered the article about Walter Gibson,actually George McLear, wanting to extend the township boundary toward the pier. I knew all the right key words apart from the petitioner's name, and was sure that the article was from 1878 but there was not one result on trove.

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.

(*Land east of McCulloch St, in section 1, Kangerong, whose owners wanted incorporated or included in the township.)

CHARLES BARNETT. (See separate journal.)

CHARLES BARNETT, A PIONEER OF DROMANA, VIC., AUST.

Google KANGERONG, COUNTY OF MORNINGTON to access the Kangerong parish map and you will see that Charles Barnett was granted crown allotment 13 section 1, the triangular block bounded by today's freeway (Palmerston road), Jetty Rd and Boundary Rd that later became Dromana's Railway Estate.

One of the daughters of Charles Barnett and Elizabeth must have married Joseph or William Story, other Dromana pioneers, who were also associated with Flemington if I remember correctly, but I have no idea where I have written such information.
Charles Bennett Story who served in W.W.2, was born at Dromana in 1883, possibly on Charles Barnett's grant the year before Charles died.

From my information about a fellow pioneer, George Robert Daws.
I accidentally lost information when transferring the post I'd started on the HISTORY OF DROMANA TO PORTSEA Facebook page and DELETED!. Changing tacks every quarter of an hour, I'd fluked finding a trove article on a pay to view ancestry site that listed trustees whose appointments had been notified in the government gazette. At that time, I suspected that George was associated with Castlemaine and I think I was doing a GEORGE ROBERT DAWS, CASTLEMAINE google search. After "Castlemaine;" were listed some trustees who, no doubt, were appointed as trustees of some public property at Dromana. HAVE NO DOUBT THAT THE SOURCE IS THERE; I JUST CAN'T FIND IT AGAIN.

The trustees were, from memory: Walter Gibbon (Gibson), Peter Pidoto, George Robert Daws, Robert Caldwell, Daniel Nicholson and Charles Barnett. The others were all respected members of the community and the fact that in about four years George had been placed on a similar pedestal says a lot about him.

Walter Gibson built a Presbyterian Manse at his own expense, Peter played a prominent part in Dromana's trade with Melbourne, Robert Caldwell played a prominent part in Dromana getting a pier and Caldwell Rd is named after him, Daniel Nicholson was one of Dromana's two pre 1861 schoolteachers and became the registrar, Charles Barnett* was the grantee of the triangular 36 acre block west of Jetty Rd that I believe was George's 34 acres.
(*See the second item in the appendix.)

CHARLES BARNETT.
The trustees for whatever public property in 1877 would have been decided at a public meeting and sent to the authorities for approval. I have a feeling that Richard Watkin may have nominated Charles Barnett.

WATKIN—BANNER.—On the 20th inst., at Mornington,by the Rev. Mr. Abrahams, Henry Watkin, only son of Richard Watkin, of the Dromana Hotel, to Sarah Anne Banner, the adopted daughter of Charles Barnett, Esq. Home papers please copy. (P.4, Argus, 24-6-1872.)
Henry Watkin died about eight years later, aged 32, and his widow married Thomas McLear. (P.72, A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA.)

BARNETT.—On the 23rd inst., at his residence, Dromana, Charles Barnett, of Tottenham, Middlesex, England, aged 72, after long and painful illness. Home papers please copy. (P.1, Argus, 28-4-1884.)

WATKIN— BARNETT.— On the 22nd March, by the Rev.W. I. Brown, Wesleyan Parsonage, North Melbourne, Richard Watkin to Elizabeth Barnett, relict of the late Charles Barnett, both of Dromana.(P.1, The Age, 25-3-1890.)

Of course I checked the ozgen list for Dromana Cemetery but there was no Barnett burial recorded. Luckily Janet had photographed his gravestone at Dromana. See:

POSTSCRIPT.
Keryn McLear: Janet ('Jessie') Cairns gave birth to Pearl in 1895, and there is no father named. Jessie married Augustus Engstrom (b Sweden) in 1900, and had a son, George Albert, in 1901. Augustus tragically drowned. In 1903, Jessie married Godfrey Glare Wilson (1875-1933) and had Rose Muriel (1906), Edith Jean Isabella (1911) and Doris Brown (1912).

Keryn also reveals that Pearl was Tom's second wife.
Selina Peters (b 1876, NZ to Richard Peters and Mary Ann Dutton) married Thomas William Chadwick when they were both about 23, in 1899, Victoria. They divorced in February 1917, when they were about 40, in Melbourne. Thomas went on to marry Pearl Cairns (b.1895, Dromana) in 1917, in Victoria when she was 22 and he was 41. They had eight children: Mavis Pearl, Thomas George, Emilie, Henry William, Leslie John, Elaine, Molly and Ruby. One of Leslie's sons married into the Griffith family, bringing in more McLear lines!

THE PIONEERING CRICHTON FAMILY OF BONEO, VIC., AUST.

I'm hoping this will submit if I paste it bit by bit.

THE PIONEERING CRICHTON FAMILY OF BONEO, VIC., AUST.
(Start of a new journal yet to be submitted.)
This journal came about because of my CHRONOLOGY OF BURIALS AT DROMANA CEMETERY journal. Journals have surname lists but the chronology will not have one because there isn't sufficient capacity for all the surnames that will be involved. By writing this journal, I will be able to mention all the surnames involved up to the birth names of John Crichton Snr's grandchildren, including several pioneering Peninsula families. The descendants of Alexander McLellan (or McLennan?), grantee of crown allotments 1 and 2, parish of Moorooduc, about 446 acres bounded by Moorooduc, Eramosa, Derril and Bungower Rds, will be surprised to find that he was an executor of Thomas Ormiston Martin. Readers will be directed to a valuable source of information about James Smith Adams Snr and Jnr.

The article about the reunion of David Maynard Crichton's descendants in 2015 gives the impression that he was the first member of the family at Boneo and John Crichton Snr's obituary in 1885 gives the impression that he had only two children. James Crichton has compiled a fabulous genealogy of the the family which explains why John Crichton Jnr's death notice in 1934 did not mention his wife and children. Above all this journal is needed to show that Maurice Meyrick, the Barker brothers and the Cairns family were not the only early pioneers of Boneo.
Boneo Cricket Club has a long history and J.Crichton was one of its players in 1894. The Crichtons were renowned as cheese makers and the Boneo (Butter/ Cream?) Factory was on land donated by the family. Hickory gave due prominence to the Crightons in his 1916 article.

P.6, THE AUSTRALASIAN, 19-2-1916.
THE BONEO DISTRICT.
By HICKORY.
AWAITING DEVELOPMENTS.
Regarded from the Beach road, which skirts the coast between Rosebud and Rye,the country inland would be summed up as being about as hungry-looking as anything in Victoria—just the country to give any amount of scope for improvement. That improvement of this class of soil has been effected by means of melilotus is an oft-told tale, both concerning Victoria and King Island. Turning off te Beach road a mile from Rosebud township into the Schanck road, and rising over the sand hummocks, there opens out a wide expanse of much better country, known as Boneo. This district was formerly well timbered, of which little now remains, though something has been done to replace those destroyed by planting pines (P. Lambertiana is represented by some noble specimens), and other imported forest trees. (The pine plantation was destroyed by fire and was the one of three option chosen for the site of the Rosebud Club by a committee of three including a Crichton -"Bogies and Birdies.")
The bulk of the land is a friable sandy loam, well furnished with lime, and, being blessed with an abundant
rainfall, it is capable, with proper treatment, of growing almost anything. The country is undulating, and is contained onthe east by the range running from Arthur'sSeat, by a group of sand hills of curious shape stretching right back to the sea coast, on the south and west; and on the north by the sand hummocks skirting this portion of Port Phillip. As can be imagined, inside these elevations, water can easily be found by sinking, the depth varying from 2ft. to 30ft., and windmills are a feature of the landscape. Other features are
bracken and rabbits, against which a few owners are battling by systematic cultivation and by wire netting; but the district as a whole is capable of great improvement, and should carry a much larger population.
Farms vary in size, from 80 acres to 500 acres, on which mixed farming—grazing, cropping, and dairying—are carried out, and the crops of maize, rape, wheat, potatoes, and stacks of oaten hay give some indication of the district's capabilities and resources which await further development. On present indications there should be great profit in sheep breeding here, particularly in summer lambs, for rearing which crops can be grown with little trouble, so that only small areas are necessary. Developed to its greatest capacity, this district will need port improvement, and a line of small, fast steamships, such as carry on the channel trade in southern Tasmania.

THE MORASS
Distinct from the undulating sandy loam is a strip of country formerly a swamp, but since converted by private enterprise into a rich peaty flat, suitable for rape, potatoes, onions—all vegetables, in fact—maize, and the many other products of a temperate climate. The owners through whose properties the swamp ran employed an engineer, and excavated a large drain at a cost of £1,200, into which side drains discharge, the water eventually flowing into the bay between Rosebud and Rye. The expense of draining has been divided amongst the owners in proportion to the acreage drained for each. A syndicate has bought about 90 acres of this rich
soil, with a view to onion-growing; and, judging by the specimens raised by Mr.Jensen on this land, it should prove a profitable venture.
This gentleman owns 600 acres*, mainly drained swamp, and has tried out a number of varied crops on the rich soil, comparable to the best on Koo wee-rup. After draining the land the tussocks were grubbed out by hand at a cost of from 25/ to 30/ per acre. These were burned, and the land straightway cultivated with a three-furrow disc plough, with which five horses can turn over three acres per day. Then the land was harrowed and rolled. The cultivation was commenced in August, and in October 45 acres were sown with rape and mustard at the rate of 4 1b.rape seed, half lb. mustard seed, and 40 1b. special manure. The crop at the time of my visit was a splendid one, 3ft. high in pieces, and showing a mass of succulent feed, on which 50 head of cattle and from
300 to 600 sheep, put in in December and changed on and off to grass land every few days, had made no impression.
Potatoes and onions have given good yields on this great land, six to seven tons per acre of the former and three to four tons per acre of the latter, with no manure, being the results from the first crops. Both tuber-crops yielded fine samples, which realised topprices in the Melbourne market. Test plots of rye grass, white cloven alsike clover, and lucerne show fine growth. Three crops of lucerne hay can be reckoned on this first
season, but at 4 1b. per acre it was sown too thinly to give a great bulk of fodder.

The balance of the cleared land has been sown broadcast with melilot to clean and sweeten it. This will make a good preparatory crop for lucerne; but the ground is too valuable to be used for melilot, which has grown
well and afforded plenty of feed. On leased land, in the higher sandy loam country, Mr. Jensen put in 140 acres of Algerian oats, sowing at the rate of two bushels per acre, with 701b. of super, and bonedust.On land cropped for 40 years a yield of from 25cwt. to 30cwt. per acre was cut. Last year, during the drought, hay was supplied from this district to the metropolis. A nice crop of maize is growing here, though I was assured that last year
the crops were much better. Hickory King is the favourite variety, and is grown mainly for the grain which is ted to fowls and pigs.
The sheep kept are crossbred ewes, with which Shropshire rams are joined at the beginning of February. Lambing takes place in June and July, and the lambs are ready for market about Christmas.

GLENLEE FARM.
Mr. John Crichton is farming 440 acres, part of which is drained swamp. Dairying is the main objective, the maximum number of cows being 55, of which 40 are being milked at the present time. Formerly cheese-making was carried on, but now the milk is separated, a carrier picking up the cream and taking it to the railway station at Mornington five days a week. The cows are Ayrshires and Ayrshire crosses, bulls of the Buchanan* strain being always used, the present head of the herd being the fourth from that source.
(*The Buchanans of Berwick and Flinders were second only to the McNabs of Tullamarine in the establishment of the Tasmanian Ayrshire herd.)


THE BIT BY BIT ADDITIONS WORKED WELL FOR A TIME BUT NOW A SMALLISH PARAGRAPH WILL NOT SUBMIT, SO MORE LATER.
I'll try to continue in comment boxes.

THE CHADWICKS OF PASCOEVILLE, BROADMEADOWS TOWNSHIP, ESSENDON, BENALLA, ROSEBUD AND DROMANA., VIC., AUST.

STOP PRESS! (Disregard any claims that do not accord with the following until they are corrected.)
William John Chadwick, father of the Rosebud pioneer of 1918 was NOT the son of William Goldsborough Chadwick, pioneer of Pascoe Vale, Tullamarine, Essendon and Benalla. As in the case of John Bethell (and a brother whose given name I don't recall and who died as a young man) of Broadmeadows and William Bethell of Bulla, William Goldsborough seems to have come out with at least one brother or relative, Thomas. Such facts were rarely given in VICTORIA AND ITS METROPOLIS, most likely because Alexander Sutherland issued a questionnaire which did not ask about such connections. William John Chadwick, born in 1849 with a different surname, did not come to Australia until 1862 when he was 11. William John was the son of HENRY CHADWICK.

CHADWICK—CURRAN (Silver Wedding).—On the 19th December, 1874, by license, at Trinity Church, Stratford, Gippsland, by the Rev. G.W. Watson, William John, youngest son of the late Henry Chadwick, Esq., of Manchester, to Emilie, only daughter of Thos. Curran, Esq., of Stratford. (Present address, National Bank of Australasia Limited, Clifton Hill.)

The name, Thomas, is a complication in the Chadwick story. I was presented with a copy of the history of Will Will Rook Cemetery at its launch. This comes from a list of William and Amelia's children in one of the Benalla histories. "Charles William (b. 1859)Thomas (b.1869). On checking the Will Will Rook Cemetery history, I found:
Reg. No.31 Chadwick, Charles William, buried 1860, age 1 year 2 months, Butcher's child, parents-William Chadwick and Elizabeth #5153.
Reg.273 Chadwick,Thomas, buried 14-5-1871, age 2 years 5 months, parents-Thomas and Amelia Rogers.#3833.

The birth details for these two children mesh perfectly with the burial records (which were unavailable until Beryl Patullo's team wrote the cemetery history.)

Was Elizabeth another of Amelia's given names? Was Thomas another given name or pet name of William Goldsborough Chadwick. Were both clerical errors made by the sextant or registrar?

Toying with the idea that Amelia was a Broady girl, I found two Rogers burials.Charles Rogers was a coach proprietor in 1863 and Elizabeth Rogers who died in 1880 at 67 was a hotel keeper at Campbellfield. This hotel may have been the Royal Mail Hotel at Somerton and led to the wrong use of this name for the hotel in Broadmeadows in Amelia's 1908 obituary.

Were Thomas Chadwick and William Chadwick one and the same or two different people?

We know that William Chadwick was in Broadmeadows Township by 1858, because William, a Wesleyan, was appointed to the Board of National School No. 27 to lessen the predominance of Presbyterians (P.40, BROADMEADOWS A FORGOTTEN HISTORY, A. Lemon.) Thomas Chadwick was granted a licence for the Broadmeadows Hotel in 1855.
*CHADWICK THOMAS Broadmeadows Broadmeadows 17 APR 1855 granted
(http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~pobjoyoneill/publicans/PUBC.htm)

"Thomas Chadwick was in charge of the Laurel Hotel at the corner of Mt.Alexander Rd and Middle St (Melway 28 K10) in 1866 and Mrs Emma Chadwick in 1881 (R.K.Cole Collection of Hotel Records at the Latrobe Library.)

The second given name of William Goldsborough Chadwick came from a title document. It is not known whether he was the Benalla pioneer or the son of Thomas (and Emma?)Chadwick. On 20-2-1865, Francis Anne Kenny, widow of Eyre Evans Kenny,sold 26* acres of Mansfield's triangle to Thomas Washbourne and William Goldsborough Chadwick.It had been sold to David Mansfield by 1868 and passed to his son, Samuel.


*Mansfield's Triangle was bounded by Sharps Rd (now partly Caterpillar Drive),Melrose Drive and Broadmeadows Rd. It was divided into three parts of from the south, 26, 52 and 11 acres. The 26 acres are believed (from dimensions given in title memorials) to have fronted Sharps Rd and extended north to a parallel line indicated by the south west end of Carol Grove (Melway 15 J3.). It is possible that this land (separated from the rest of Camp Hill by the GREAT ROAD TO THE DIGGINGS in about 1847) might be the land about a mile towards Deep Creek to which William moved from Pascoeville,but it is actually two and a half miles from the Pascoe Vale bridge to the south east corner of the 26 acres. It is however exactly a mile from the end of Devereaux St (Melway 16 D4)near the north west corner of Fawkner's Belle Vue.

Text in italics from my DICTIONARY HISTORY OF TULLAMARINE AND MILES AROUND, pages C.62, C66 except for the 1855 licence marked with an asterisk.

It is clear that Thomas Chadwick was a separate person and probable that Mrs Emma Chadwick was his widow.

From my DICTIONARY HISTORY OF TULLAMARINE AND MILES AROUND, page C.61, with my additions in brackets.
CHADWICK, William, Benalla, is a native of Yorkshire, England who came to the colony in 1852 and commenced work with Mr.J.P.Fawkner on the Pascoe Vale Estate on which he remained for six months after it came into possession (the occupancy) of Mr James(Fawkner having moved to Collingwood). He then started a butcher's business on the estate and, after being there for two years, removed *a mile away towards Deep Creek. Thence he removed to Broadmeadows (Township, today's Westmeadows south of Kenny St) and with the same business connected a hotel, remaining there for six years. (*Possibly 26 acres at Tullamarine leased at this time,then bought in 1865.)

He next proceeded to Essendon where he carried on the same line of business* in conjunction with cattle dealing and after twelve years removed to Benalla where he still carries on hotel-keeping, being proprietor and licensee of the Farmer's Arms Hotel. He has also 640 acres of land and carries on farming, having 100 acres under wheat, oats and barley.He is married and has a family of four** sons.

took over Peter Pitches' hotel at Essendon and ran it for some time as the FARMERS' ARMS HOTEL. Peter, after whom a street is named just south of the extant hotel may have called it the Royal Mail, leading to the mistake in the 1908 obituary.
** Only two, Martin and William, survived when William's widow died in 1908.)

This journal started from an entry in my CHRONOLOGY OF BURIALS AT DROMANA journal, namely: 14-1-1943. THOMAS WILLIAM CHADWICK. This Rosebud pioneer, whose story is told there, was possible a great nephew of the Pascoeville pioneer.

EMAIL TO "ROSEBUD RIPPLE"
I OFTEN WONDERED IF THE ROSEBUD CHADWICKS WERE RELATED TO THE PIONEER OF BROADMEADOWS TOWNSHIP. THE TOWNSHIP'S TWO HOTELS WERE CALLED THE BROADMEADOWS AND THE VICTORIA. THE FORMER MAY HAVE BEEN CALLED THE ROYAL MAIL BEFORE 1863, BUT I HAVE SEEN NO EVIDENCE. WILLIAM DIXON SCURFIELD WHO HAD LAND IN THE TOWNSHIP MAY HAVE INVITED WM. CHADWICK TO SPEND A HOLIDAY AT HIS HOTEL ON THE WEST CORNER OF PERMIEN ST DROMANA. THE TWO CHADWICK HOTELS WITH THE SAME NAME WERE THE ONES AT ESSENDON AND BENALLA.

It's a small world!
William Chadwick was the licensee of the Broadmeadows Hotel in Ardlie St, Westmeadows in the 1860's after having started as a butcher at John Pascoe Fawkner's Pascoeville. He then took over the Farmers' Arms hotel on the south west corner of Buckley and Mt Alexander Rds* in Essendon for about a decade before moving to Benalla and establishing a hotel with the same name at Benalla. (Victoria and its Metropolis?) Dorothy Fullarton, former Mayor of Essendon, introduced me to Mrs Ivison,who grew up in Benalla and allowed me to borrow two histories of that area which gave more detail such as a photo of the Chadwick family standing by their car when they visited their boy at the army camp next to the Will Will Rook Cemetery (Maygar Barracks and Northcorp Industrial Park today.)

(*The Farmers'Arms was originally near Essendon Station until William transferred the licence to a new building on the site described in 1874.)

It SEEMED likely that the above, the pioneer and servant of Rosebud (despite the given names being reversed in the service history), was the grandson of the Broadmeadows Township Essendon and Benalla pioneer (wrong!) who had only four children, all sons,(WRONG!) of whom only Martin and William were mentioned in 1908. As Tom's (or Will's)death notice shows, he had more than one sibling.

CHADWICK.-On January 12. at his residence. Rosebud, Thomas William, beloved son of the late Emily and William Chadwick, brother of Ethel (deceased), Arthur,and Roy. -Rest in peace.

HIS PARENTS. William John Chadwick married Emilie Curran. He was apparently born in England in 1849 with a different surname and came to Australia in 1862 when he was 11, according to a website, which also has photos of William John above this passage:
"William John CHADWICK,
most likely have been taken at Dromana at the property called "Clifton Villa".
Sadly the property was sold and the house torn down many years ago.
It was sold to the bloke who owned the garage next door, and, a Service Station was built on the site.
He was a Bank Manager probably the National Bank, at Richmond Victoria.
Retired to Dromana, become a Real Estate Agent .
(http://www.oocities.org/richmonds_of_burnham/chadwick.html)

Not being on the ozgen or Ngaireth's lists for Dromana Cemetery, W.J. might have been buried at Benalla.

OUR PIONEER'S GRANDMOTHER? NO! WILLIAM JOHN CHADWICK WAS THE SON OF HENRY CHADWICK OF MANCHESTER.
OBITUARY.
MRS. WILLIAM CHADWICK
The death took place on Friday evening last of Mrs. Amelia Chadwick, relict of the late Mr. Wm. Chadwick, for many years the owner and licensee of the Farmers' Arms Hotel. The sad news occasioned very deep regret, and the late Mrs Chadwick was one of the most respected and beloved residents of this town. During the past six months she had been suffering from paralysis, and owing to her advanced age, 76 years, her recovery was not expected, and, as stated, the sad event occurred on Friday night at the residence of her niece, Mrs. Murray, in Benalla-street.

Mrs. Chadwick was a native of Suffolkshire, England, and she came out to this colony in 1852, and proceeded to the Broadmeadows district and the following year she was married to Mr.Wm. Chadwick, who predeceased her in
November 1902. For some time they carried on a butchering business at Broadmeadows, but this they subsequently disposed of, and took the Royal Mail(sic, *Broadmeadows Hotel)at the same place, afterward removing to
an hotel of same name (sic*) at Essendon. Here they continued for some years, and in 1877 they purchased(sic?) the Farmers' Arms Hotel,at Benalla, which, in those days was doing a thriving business. Mr. Chadwick sold out
out of this hotel in August, 1901, to Mr Pearcey. Mrs. Chadwick leaves two sons, Messrs, Martin and William Chadwick for whom much sympathy has been expressed in their bereavement. The remains were interred in the Benalla Cemetery on Sunday last, and were followed to their last resting place by upwards of 30 buggies.
(P.2, Benalla Standard, 4-8-1908.)

(*and permission was granted to Wm. Chadwick to remove his present licence from the Farmers' Arms Hotel, Essendon, to a new house at the corner of the Braybrook and Mount Alexander-road, Essendon, to be known
as thE Farmers' Arms Hotel. (FLEMINGTON COURT,P.3, The Age, 24-7-1874.)

pETER PITCHES ESTABLISHED THE ROYAL HOTEL(which may have originally been called the Royal Mail) NEAR THE ESSENDON STATION BUT MUST HAVE BUILT THE NEW HOTEL ON HIS LAND FARTHER NORTH. BUCKLEY ST WEST WAS ORIGINALLY CALLED BRAYBROOK ROAD BECAUSE IT LED TO SOLOMONS FORD, THE FIRST CROSSING OF THE SALTWATER RIVER, USED BY EARLY TRAVELLERS TO GEELONG AND SOUTH WEST VICTORIA SUCH AS GEORGE RUSSELL AND JOHN AITKEN OF "MOUNT AITKEN" NEAR SUNBURY WHO BOUGHT C/A 8 DOUTTA GALLA NEAR THE FORD AS A HOLDING PADDOCK. SOLOMONS FORD WAS SOUTH OF RHONDA ST, AVONDALE HEIGHTS DESPITE COUNTLESS HERITAGE STUDIES STATING IT WAS AT MELWAY 27 B8 NEAR CLANCY'S GRANTS. BRAYBROOK TOWNSHIP STRADDLED THE RIVER.


I should have read further into the Chadwick entry in my D.H.O.T.A.M.A. The website quoted shows that family researchers were fishing in the dark. The following comes from the books about Benalla supplied by Dorothy Fullarton (BENALLA SKETCHED by Judy Bassett and A JOURNEY THROUGH THE PARISH OF KARRABUMET by Joyce Charnstrom and Jacye Symes.)

William Goldsborough Chadwick was born in Leeds, Yorkshire in 1924. In 1854 he married Amelia Rogers (who was born in about 1832 and died at Benalla in 1908.In 1873 he acquired allotment 37 and the Farmers' Arms Hotel, Benalla. Their children were:
John Edward (born 1855,died single in 1888 at Benalla); Elizabeth (b.1857); Charles William (b. 1859);
Martin Goldsborough (b.1863, married Sarah Riley 1885, own farm near dad 1887, retired to Melb. 1923);
Amelia (b.1865, drowned 1878 at Lake Rowan; Thomas (b.1869) thus being about 4 when buried at Will Will Cemetery; John (b.1872, died 1898 at Benalla.)

No mention there about William John. Was that because he was born out of wedlock or was he adopted? He was certainly Amelia's son as stated in Amelia's obituary: "Mrs. Chadwick leaves two sons, Messrs, Martin and William Chadwick." WILLIAM JOHN WAS THE youngest son of the late Henry Chadwick, Esq., of Manchester,(WHO WAS DEAD BY THE TIME OF W.J.'S MARRIAGE IN 1874 (see silver wedding notice at start of journal)AND MAYBE BY THE TIME OF THE 11 YEAR OLD'S DEPARTURE FOR AUSTRALIA IN 1862.


There is much more HANDWRITTEN information that I will supply if requested.

DAVIDSON, Grace 1948, James 1958.) (NOT IN NGAIRETH'S LIST.)
A wedding photo of the couple is just before this excerpt about two thirds of the way through the Campbell history.
Their last child, James White Davidson, attended school at Hornsdale and at 23 went droving and shearing around NSW. He was married on 28 April 1909 by Rev R. Campbell to Grace Maxwell Wilson. Grace was born on 5 April 1886 at Lilydale, Tasmania, second daughter of James and Grace Wilson. After their wedding they lived at Mount Russell, New South Wales, where they had three children, Grace Isabella Maxwell, Helen Margaret Heather and Jessie Jemima Janet. At Bowra Station near Cunnamulla Queensland they had two more children, James Hugh McKenzie and Jean Elizabeth Wilson. James senior spent 23 years in South Australia, 19 in New South Wales, 12 in Queensland and 28 years in Victoria.

James managed the 30,000 acre Bowra property and then moved to Shoreham Victoria in 1929. Bowra Station is now famous for its birdlife and draws many national and international visitors. Grace died 25 September 1948 at her daughter’s house in NSW and James on 7 June 1958 at Melbourne. They are buried in a double grave in the Presbyterian section of the Dromana Cemetery, Victoria.

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.

ON THE ROAD TO ECHUCA, VIC., AUST.

I've just returned from a holiday to Echuca, one of many I have enjoyed. The local historical societies may be interested in my observations. Echuca, Moama and the places on the two routes, via the Hume Freeway and the Calder Freeway, are packed with history and information about pioneers. Unfortunately the tourist booklet about Echuca/ Moama produced by the HISTORIC Riverine Herald, established by Henry Hopwood in 1863 (exact date shown in the Merool Holiday Park on one of the cabins recalling history) does little to make you feel at home. It lists the accommodation and eateries but there is no map to indicate where they might be. Therefore your first stop should be the excellent information centre accessed by a road, to the left just before you cross to Moama, which also leads to the historic port. They have a large, free map of Echuca/Moama. An inspection of historic buildings between the information centre and port, such as the brothel which the GENTLEMEN could visit via a shady lane without being seen, is fascinating.

The weather was unusually miserable but a stroll under verandahs, looking at the historic buildings, whose establishment and various uses are detailed brilliantly on plaques, was a great way to get out and about without getting soaked. The only trouble was finding out which streets offered such an opportunity, hence, get the map first up. It was great to read about the members of the historical society who got the national trust to assess Echuca's heritage value and pushed for restoration of the port. We discovered certain stretches of verandahs and historic buildings only by chance, but where was the main drag?

Interestingly, both Moama and Echuca were established by former convicts, James Maiden and Henry Hopwood respectively. Some local historians have been busy and the Wikipedia pages for both towns contain excellent historical information. There is also a sheet entitled HENRY HOPWOOD'S ECHUCA available from the information centre. Details presented on Wkipedia, and on the sheet, supplement that available on the other.

Just as you enter Merool Rd, there is a street on the right named Maiden Smith. Of course, I thought it was named after a pioneering woman but then I found out about Maiden's Punt, established well before Henry's. One of the old buildings was constructed by Henry and later owned by James McCulloch. Serious research can uncover links between any two places, such as Percy Hurren snoring in church in the Mallee, being postmaster at Moorooduc in 1950 and farming on Dalkeith and joining the Tullamarine Progress Association by 1951. (David Shepherd, descendant of the Somerville pioneer and Edward Jones of Moorooduc and his wife who came from the Mallee.) I wondered if James McCulloch was related to William* McCulloch of river boat fame who bought "Glenroy Farm" Melway 16 H2. (*Can't find my copy of BROADMEADOWS A FORGOTTEN HISTORY at the moment.)

I still can't find the book but luckily my Broadmeadows Shire Farms journal specifies that William McCulloch bought Glenroy Farm in 1874. This was, if I remember correctly, between Hilton St and Rhodes Pde/Boundary Rd and extended east to the east boundary of the Northern golf course. William's biog. in the Australian Dictionary of Biography makes little mention of James, but the entry for James by the same author, includes the following:
McCulloch, James (1841–1904)

by Samuel Clyde McCulloch

This article was published in Australian Dictionary of Biography, Volume 5, (MUP), 1974

James McCulloch (1841-1904), businessman, was the third brother of William McCulloch. Educated at Douglas Academy, Newton-Stewart, he migrated to Melbourne in 1863 and joined the carrying company named after and directed by William. James worked first in Castlemaine but early in 1865 was sent to Echuca to open a branch of the firm. Although capital and guidance came from the Melbourne headquarters, James's energy, persuasiveness and diplomacy helped him to negotiate contracts with squatters for the carriage of their wool clips. He also acquired a small fleet of riverboats and barges. The company soon commanded most of the forwarding business from stores and offices opposite the wharf. On 27 February 1867 James married Alice Bolton, only daughter of Henry Hopwood.

Of interest in the William McCulloch biography are the statements that he bought several (unnamed) farms near Melbourne and that he was responsible for the railway line to Deniliquin (McCulloch was also a founder and director of the Moama-Deniliquin railway, opened in 1876.) Glenroy Farm is not relevant to this journal but there is a lengthy article in my A LOT OF BULL ABOUT GLENROY journal about William's thoroughness in establishing the farm and his famed (Bates) shorthorn herd with much detail about lineage. See:
(The Sydney Mail and New South Wales Advertiser (NSW : 1871 - 1912) Saturday 9 December 1882 p 1036 Article)

THE QUILT HOUSE AT COBRAM, AND OTHER TOWNS.
Echuca can be complimented on the aforementioned heritage plaques. I hope the same applied to the towns on either route which also boast a huge number of heritage buildings. Kilmore's stone hospital is magnificent as is
Heathcote's hotel currently being repainted. Returning via Bendigo we drove up the steep hill just past the Shamrock where (Dame Nellie or Lola Montez?) demanded that the bell be silenced, to see the sensational Roman Catholic cathedral.

Cobram could have one of the greatest non-heritage tourist attractions in Australia. Some towns have the Big Pineapple, the Bottle House etc., but I'm calling Sylvia's house the Quilt House and I had a go at convincing her to open it to tourists for the sake of her town. I am not an arty crafty person and hate craft markets, being a trash and treasure type, but I was in awe of her wall hangings and other decorations, both inside and outside her house. I had thought that Quilting involved making patchwork quilts but her wall hangings, of intricate design, covered almost every wall, the house, both inside and out, being a work of art.

Why was I so concerned about Cobram, which we visited to see our wives' old Red Hatter friend? She took us to Cobram's beach. A painting in the nearby restaurant, done by a local old timer,is a magnificent bush scene and the proprietor threatens not to let you leave until you spot the kangaroo and the two dogs in the scene. A bit of fun which provides the sort of tourist experience that lingers long after the holiday. After this task, I read a notice near the beach. Basically, it carried a warning similar to this.

Blue Green Algae
The Murray River is still safe to visit however do not injest the water between Hume Dam to near Swan Hill. There is a red alert issued for blue-green algae.

In other words, you can look at our greatest river but don't touch. Governments of any persuasion must maintain flows in our rivers!

I reckon a holiday in which you do things that you could easily do at home are a waste of time and money. Emphasising a town's history is one way to attract visitors who share this philosophy but unique experiences must be offered by wineries and restaurants to compete with those closer to home. Festivals are a good start!


SO THAT'S WHY JAMES McULLOCH LATER OWNED HOPWOOD'S BUILDING! THE TOP-HATTED PIONEER REMINDS ME OF JOHN PASCOE FAWKNER.
Hopwood, Henry (1813–1869)

by Susan McCarthy

This article was published in Australian Dictionary of Biography, Volume 4, (MUP), 1972

Henry Hopwood (1813-1869), founder of Echuca, was born in Bolton, Lancashire, England, son of Henry Hopwood, manufacturer, and his wife Mary, née Kelly. His bookshelves in later years suggest that he acquired at least a passing acquaintance with some Latin authors. On 11 December 1832 as a gilder in Liverpool he married a widow Fanny Wagdin (Walkden), née Roberts(?). On 8 March 1834 as a labourer he was convicted at the Lancaster Assizes for receiving stolen silk and sentenced to fourteen years' transportation.

Hopwood arrived at Hobart Town in the William Metcalfe on 4 September. For 'orderly conduct' he was made a police constable in February 1835. For breaching regulations by living with a woman not his wife in 1838 he was sentenced to a road-gang for a year. In May 1839 he 'aided and assisted' the abduction of his master's daughter and was sent to Port Arthur for two years. He received a ticket-of-leave on 22 December 1842 and rejoined the police. He was conditionally pardoned on 15 January 1846. In February 1844 he had submitted plans for supplying water to Launceston from the South Esk River. In 1845 he was 'an active, intelligent and well-disposed' clerk to a district constable's office but was denied a post in the public service when he applied in April 1846.

When his sentence expired Hopwood moved to Port Phillip and became overseer of boiling-down works on the Murray River near the future site of Echuca. When the works closed, he knocked together the huts, licensed them as the New Road Inn and had a punt for crossing the river. In 1853 when Francis Cadell and William Randell demonstrated the navigability of the river, Hopwood sent his plans for a town to Lieutenant-Governor Charles La Trobe and, perhaps with prior knowledge, leased a section of the Wharparilla run, newly gazetted as the site for a future town. Early in 1854 the town of Echuca was surveyed and named, and the first land sales held in April. Hopwood was a keen bidder. He built his Criterion Hotel 'of iron and bits and pieces' where the Echuca Club now stands, and claimed that his new punt cost £1500. In January 1855 he became postmaster at Hopwood's Ferry; by March he had opened a butchery, bakery and boiling-down works and by November a large iron store. In 1856 his remarkable pontoon bridge spanned the Murray, and in 1857 he bridged the Campaspe River, his rights secured by a special Act. Later he built a brick store, organized a school, planted a vineyard, published a newsletter and in March 1859 opened the Bridge Hotel.

Hopwood's first wife died early in 1857, and in 1859 he married Charlotte Walters of Bendigo. After a brief retirement to St Kilda he returned to Echuca in August 1860 to run the Bridge Hotel. As patron of the town he was largely responsible for attracting Angus Mackay and James Joseph Casey to publish the Riverine Herald at Echuca in 1863. In 1864 he leased the Bridge Hotel to a manager and retired from public life, save for a blustering six months from August when he served on the Echuca Road Board. Aged 55 he died of typhoid on 1 January 1869. His daughter Alice, born in Tasmania about 1845, married James McCulloch in 1867 and died without issue in 1895.

Energetic and resilient, Hopwood's undisclosed conviction undoubtedly corroded his public self-confidence. He was noted for arrogant outbursts, stormy quarrels and petty disputes, but also for intense loyalty to friends and kindness to those he deemed needy.
