JOHN PASCOE FAWKNER, FATHER OF MELBOURNE.
"The force of his own merit makes his way."
"Well, I am, not fair; and therefore I pray the gods to make me honest."
--As You Like It.
"He's honest, on mine honour."
"He hath a heart as sound as a bell, and his tongue is the clapper; for
what his heart thinks, his tongue speaks."
--Much Ado About Nothing.
"For now he lives in fame, though not in life."
If circumstances won't make a poet, as genius contemptuously asserts,
nor make up for blood in a horse, as even the stable boy swears to, they
are at times marvellously effective in making, and, for the matter of
that, also in unmaking men. So might we say with regard to the
well-known subject of this sketch, who, arriving amongst us with the
earliest, and within the repellent surrounding of an evil repute, yet
under different surroundings and favouring circumstances outlived all
traducements, whether true or otherwise, and after a long, practical,
and singularly useful career, died in the full regard of his adopted
country. The unanimity of dislike and moral depreciation with which he
was regarded by his Tasmanian fellows was not indeed without a certain
share of reason or excuse. That he was the son of a convict ought not,
of course, to prejudice him in these Christian days, when the sins of
the fathers are not to be visited upon the sons even to the first
generation. His father arrived with Collins's prisoner party, and the
boy, John Pascoe, then eleven years old, was sent with his parent--for
not seldom were wives or children thus sent with the convicts, to
ameliorate by such a touch of nature the hard features of a society of
adult vice, much as Hogarth, in some of his masterpieces of the human
woes or vices of his time, gives, in striking contrast, a foreground of
maternal affection, or of children at play in the artless innocence of
their looks and ways.
But he was probably neither a pretty nor an interesting boy; for as a
man he was of the very plainest, with a short figure, always negligently
"put on," a rough, mannerless way, and a voice husky and hoarse,
although redeemed at times into an approach to commanding an audience,
when he was strongly stirred in some exciting cause. Some people have no
patience to subdue natural antipathies in such cases, and these people
would, as well-known scripture (with some transposition of the idea)
tells us, be apt to be most plentiful "in his own country." But, again,
Fawkner was himself a convict. Yes, but for what? Certainly if a man so
notorious in after life had committed any very disparaging crime it must
have been as notorious as his name. But I never heard anything
distinctive beyond that he had, for something or other, passed under the
Caudine Forks of the Van Diemen's Land Criminal Courts. Inevitably his
early upbringing was in low associations, where, probably, ties of
friendly feeling survived, as to which he might have said with the bard
of Avon--"I am not of that feather to shake off my friend when he must
need me" (Timon of Athens). My impression was that he had been convicted
of harbouring, or aiding to escape, some who had broken the law,
whatever more that may have meant, for, with his pluck, he was probably
little troubled about niceties of fine feeling, and, thus accoutred,
Providence dropped the man amongst altogether different circumstances
and associations in his new location.
I had much to do with Fawkner, especially after he and I met in our
young colony's first Legislature, and after I sufficiently knew him, so
as to allow for the rough exterior of his nature, I never had but one
opinion of the man. That opinion was, that throughout every condition of
the considerable space of his later life, whether in health or sickness,
strength or weakness, prosperity or adversity--for, at first at least,
he, like many others, was not prosperous in golden-fleeced and golden
Victoria--he toiled, late and early, for what, in his honest judgment,
was for the good of his colony; and with a singleness of purpose which
was not excelled--was not, I think, equalled, to my knowledge at
least--by any other in that colony.
He seemed to make an ascent under the exhilarating circumstances of his
new and increasingly responsible position, and to have the consciousness
of a great mission, which nerved him to surmount all that was dubious in
his earlier career. Nor was he behind in less pretentious ways. I never
once heard of any mean or over-reaching act of his, even in the smallest
matters. He once told me, in his prosperous days, with much becoming
feeling, and as an incident he could never forget, that when quite
broken in fortune, he had received, as unasked as unexpected, a most
timely pecuniary help from Mr. Henry Moor, the well-known solicitor. The
two were, I think, at hearty variance across the political hedge; the
more honour to both.
We have seen that he showed pluck in his earlier life, even in bad
associations; and he displayed the same under better auspices later on.
His action with a certain gravely suspected Commissioner of Crown Lands
was a good illustration. This high functionary, who, in those
pre-constitutional times, was practically an irresponsible Caesar over a
vast estate of dependent Crown tenants, whose interests might in any
case be seriously jeopardized by any unfairness, and who, therefore,
like the wife of his prototype, should be even above suspicion, was
accused by rumours, of no slight noise or breadth, of unfaithfulness to
his charge, and in the grossest and most mercenary of forms. Even with
the clearest case it was anything but assuring to attack such a man in
those days of authority. But Fawkner's bite was too deep for any laissez
faire cure, and so, nolens volens, the Commissioner had to defend or
retrieve his character. The verdict of a farthing damages, at which
amount the jury estimated that character in the case, was complete
justification to Fawkner, and laid the whole Province under lasting
obligation to him for a most important public service.
Another of his more prominent services was upon the first Gold
Commission, 1854-5, summoned hastily together by the Governor, Sir
Charles Hotham, under the surprise, not unmixed with consternation,
caused by the Ballarat riot, an incident which, in some of its aspects,
such as the stockade structure, deserved rather the graver name of
rebellion. Already in his 63rd year, in broken health, and certainly the
weakest physically of the membership, he was the most active of all,
ever running full tilt into every abuse or fault or complaint that might
help to explain this unwonted, and, indeed, utterly purposeless and
stupid incident of a British community. In my capacity as chairman, I
appreciated Fawkner's untiring, or more properly, unyielding spirit, and
under travelling fatigues, too, of no mean trial even to younger men.
For the Colossus of Rhodes, as my energetic friend, Dr. (now Sir
Francis) Murphy, was humorously called, on accepting, recently before,
the charge of the rutty and miry ways of golden Victoria, had as yet
made but feeble progress in his most urgent mission. We learned enough
to explain, at least, if not to excuse the miners; and were thus guided
to a reconstruction of goldfields administration. This was chiefly in
that national element, hitherto utterly absent there, of local
representative institutions; and the change has since assured the future
from even John Bull's proverbial growling. General McArthur, with a few
troops, promptly, but not without considerable bloodshed, ended the sad
farce. In view of the very exceptional features of an incident extremely
unlikely to occur again, Fawkner and most others of the commission were
most decided for a general condonance; and this was agreed to in the
report by all except the Official Commissioner, Mr. Wright, who,
excusably enough, sided with his official superiors for a treason trial.
But the jury, as might have been anticipated, acquitted the prisoners.
One of their leaders, Mr. Peter Lalor, who lost one of his arms in the
cause, has since been for many years Speaker of the Victorian Assembly,
and as loyal to his Queen as he is genial to his many friends.
When we wound up the Commission's inquiry at Castlemaine, and on the
morning of a hot midsummer day embarked upon one of the springless "Cobb
and Co's" of the time, with the prospect of ten or twelve hours of
terrible jolting before us, poor old Fawkner seemed so much enfeebled
that I was in some doubt as to his being landed alive at Melbourne. But,
game to the last, he rode uncomplainingly through all; and he lived even
a goodly number of years after, but only to do more and more work. Old
General Anderson, of early colonial memory, had a habit, quite his own,
of saying to the face of anyone whose conduct gave him satisfaction, and
in his blunt soldierly way, "Sir, I have a great respect for you." Such
an accrediting and not unacceptable declaration he addressed, times
more, I think, than once, to Fawkner. Indeed, all classes of the colony,
from the highest, in which the gallant colonel moved, to the humblest,
now alike recognized the veteran who had so long and so well fought for
them all. When at last the spirit quitted the worn-out frame, and its
well-known form, possibly, even to the last, keeping up still, amongst
some few, the lingering dislike of the long past, was to be no more seen
amongst us, there seemed but one impulse for the occasion, which
fittingly expressed itself in a funeral procession entirely
unprecedented in its every aspect. This was not less to the colony's
honour than to that of Fawkner. He died on 4th September, 1869. Not the
least impressive feature of the funeral, perhaps the most, was the
remarkable prayer offered up at the grave by the Reverend Dr. Cairns.
Victoria's most eloquent preacher, in giving the true setting to the
life and character of the man, thanked God, in the name of the colony,
for such a life, the influence and example of which could not but be for
good to all who were to follow. He has fought bravely for the R.I.P. of
the tomb. He rests from his labours, and his works do follow him.
IN ABOUT 1845,WILLIAM WESTGARTH WAS TOURING AUSTRALIA FELIX AS MAJOR MITCHELL CALLED IT. His pen pictures of the Hentys rival those of Harry Huntington Peck about pioneers in MEMOIRS OF A STOCKMAN.
THE HENTY FAMILY, AND THE FOUNDATION OF VICTORIA.
"Let the end try the man."
--2nd Part Henry IV.
"Great world! Victoria brings thee meat and corn and wine,
With richly veined woods, and glittering gold from mine,
Fairy web of silken thread, soft thick snowy fleece;
Wide room for smiling homes of industry and peace."
--Mrs. H.N. Baker.
The founder of to-day's great colony of Victoria was Mr. Edward Henty,
who landed at Portland Bay from Launceston, with live stock and stores,
for the purpose of settlement, on the 19th November, 1834. But in regard
to that notable event I prefer to speak of "The Henty Family," because,
in their colonizing efforts they seem to have acted so much with mutual
family purpose and in mutual help, and because there was a preparatory
work in which the family were all more or less engaged, all leading up
to this settlement at Portland, a site which had been selected after
more than two years of previous adventurous excursions and observations
along the coasts of Western Victoria and of South Australia.
The successful settlement of the noble Port Phillip Harbour the
following year by Batman and Fawkner caused such general attention and
such a tide of colonization, that remote Portland was comparatively
overlooked. For many years, therefore, much less was heard of the Hentys
than of those who had merely followed their steps. In fact, there can be
but little doubt that these latter were first aroused to the colonizing
of the vast areas, the all but terra incognita, across the Straits by
the vigorous example set by the Henty family almost from the moment of
their arrival in Launceston in 1831, and by the reports which they
brought back from time to time of the lands of promise they were opening
to public notice in South-Eastern Australia. But now that rail and
telegraph have virtually abolished distance, and familiarized the
central colonists with the value and beauty of the earliest occupied
Western areas--the Australia Felix of Mitchell--the Messrs. Henty's
position has passed more to the front, and their priority been
I was not personally very intimate with any of the Henty family,
otherwise I might have had more to say in this sketch. But I have met
most of the brothers repeatedly, and frequently I met James, the
Melbourne merchant, who was the eldest, and also William, the lawyer and
ex-Premier of Tasmania, a most amiable and gentlemanly man, who latterly
resided at Home, where he died, and who often attended the lectures and
discussions at the Royal Colonial Institute of London. Both of these
brothers were rather grave and quiet, while Edward and Stephen were
energetic and lively even beyond most colonists. Francis, now the only
survivor of the large family, I met only once, about forty-three years
ago, in the Western District. He was then a handsome and rather slim
young man, not of the Henty mould, which was rather of the full John
Bull kind, as "Punch" gives him, minus the obesity. But if I may credit
the Melbourne "Illustrateds" in a recent likeness of the last of the
Victorian founders, he must have consented, in later life, to drop more
into the family mould. They were a family of eight sons and one
daughter. Seven of the sons emigrated with their father. They were all
men of mark, above average in mind and physique--men of a presence, who
would have been prominent in any society; altogether, in numbers, in
appearance, in circumstances, and in events, quite a remarkable family.
As I am not writing for history, so as to study completeness in my
account, but only of personal observations and recollections, I shall
not do more than give a very slight sketch of the emigratory particulars
of this family, and my excuse is that these data are so far personal as
having been told me direct by one or other of the family. The story is
striking, and our descendants may look back with surpassing interest to
the Romulus and Remus of a future Rome which, in the possibilities of
modern progress, may exceed that of the past. The father, Mr. Thomas
Henty, of Sussex, England, took the resolution to emigrate, with his
family, to the "Swan River," as the present Western Australia was then
called. In 1829 he sent his eldest and two younger sons there, with
suitable servants and supplies, intending to follow with the rest. These
pioneers declared against the Swan, and advised their father to go to
Launceston instead, to which place they themselves also went. Arrived
all there in 1831, a new disappointment awaited the family. No grant of
land could be had, as in the case of the Swan, where they had 84,000
acres. This grant system had been abolished only a fortnight before
their arrival. They had now to rent their farms, and the prospects,
therefore, were discouraging. They were unable even to effect an
exchange for their Swan River grant.
This disappointment led to a search, begun in 1832, under the lead of
Edward, the second son, who twice traversed the seas between Portland
and Spencer Gulf, examining the aspect and promise of the country. The
result was always in favour of Portland, where he landed on one
occasion, confirming all impressions by actual inspection ashore. He,
therefore, resolved on a settlement here. In his second expedition he
took his father with him, as the latter had expressed the wish to see
for himself the Swan River grant before finally abandoning it. The
party, having reached the Swan, found that what they had got was "sand,
not land," and so it was finally given up.
Edward, who was the prime adventurer of the party, now got ready to
settle at Portland Bay. He chartered a small schooner, "The Thistle",
loading her with stores and live stock, and with selections of seed,
fruit trees, vegetables, etc., part of them bought from Fawkner, who had
then a market garden on Windmill Hill, near Launceston, besides keeping
the Cornwall Hotel there; and with these he sailed in October, 1834. In
two days they were within twenty-five miles of their destination, when a
storm drove them back to King's Island. Six times successively they were
thus driven back, losing a good many of their live stock, and it was
only after thirty-four days that they effected their landing. The work
of colonization began at once. "The Thistle" returned to Launceston for
fresh supplies and additional colonists, and returned this second time
with Francis Henty, the youngest of the family, who landed at Portland
on 13th December, within twenty-four days of his brother. Edward was
then twenty-four years of age, and his brother only eighteen. This is
the brief but momentous story of the founding of Victoria.
Mr. Francis Henty has given a most amusing account of the meeting
between his party and that of Major (afterwards Sir Thomas) Mitchell,
who, in exploring "Australia Felix," in 1836, came, in great surprise,
upon the Henty settlement at Portland. The story reads now like the
highest romance of adventurous exploration. The Mitchell intruders, five
in number, were at once regarded as bushrangers, and a defence promptly
organized. The fire-arms were limited to an old musket, which was loaded
to the very muzzle, to be ready for a grand discharge. Then as to the
Mitchell party, even after they were relieved of their first fears, for
they too had taken the others to be "no better than they should be,"
they exercised a measure of reserve, as though doubtful of their new
friends' respectability. Mutual suspicions, however, being at last
dismissed, the travellers were supplied with the stores they much
wanted, and, in return, they gave such a favourable account of the
pastures of the Wannon Valley as to induce Mr. Edward Henty subsequently
to remove a part of the flocks there, and to establish the homestead
where, as I have already stated, I enjoyed in my Western Victorian
travels the squatting hospitalities.
Let me add just one more incident of the Henty family, one personal to
myself, but in quite a different direction from the above. Once, on a
special occasion, I met the banker, Charles, who had stuck to his
profession at Launceston, instead of adventuring across the Straits with
his brothers. Besides his quiet banking vocation, he was, I think, the
portliest of the family, which may be the explanation. The occasion was
a public dinner to the Anti-Transportation League delegation, sent from
Melbourne, in 1852, to stir up the cause at the Van Diemen's Land
fountain head of the common evil, and of which delegation my lately
deceased old friend Lauchlan Mackinnon and myself were regarded as the
heads. Mackinnon, like many another such vigorous Highlander, as he then
was, could never take a subject of deep interest to himself quietly. We
had had a sample of him already at Hobart, where the feeling as to our
mission was by no means clear, both from the natural touchiness of
convict connection or descent, and from that still considerable section
of colonial employers and traders who thought that the ledger and its
profit and loss account had at least an equal right to be heard in the
question as any other so-called higher interest. The ground, slippery
enough at Hobart, was supposed to be still more treacherous at
Launceston. Had not Edward Wilson, of the thoroughly Mackinnonized
Melbourne "Argus", been but a little before nearly mobbed by the furious
Anti-Antis of this place, to his utter surprise and astonishment at his
own importance, and been only saved, in life or limb perhaps, by old
Jock Sinclair, who was timely on the spot, and who dexterously led him,
by a roundabout, to safety within the departing steamer for Melbourne?
In short, a row was more than half expected from the Mackinnon speech,
and as this was undesirable, for good reasons to all sides of Launceston
society, Mr. Henty resolved to prevent it, and did so most successfully
by a very adroit but not unworthy trick. He took occasion to speak just
before the Mackinnon avalanche was to come on. Introducing Mackinnon and
commending his straightforward honesty in this matter, and so on, he
said that some such people could not take even a good cause in
moderation; but that these defects, if he might so call them, were more
easily seen than remedied, and that all kindly consideration must be
made in the case. I fear I am not literal as to the identical words,
although I heard them, but I have given the purport. Poor Mackinnon, as
he afterwards laughingly pleaded, what could he do under the cold douche
of such a wet blanket? He made the smallest and quietest speech of his
life upon a great and stirring subject.
I had never heard of Yering until I wrote my journal about George and Ollie Johnstone of Purves Rd near Dromana. William wrote his memories of Early Melbourne while sailing back to visit his old haunt. They included his visit to Yering and the effect of the 1843 depression which ruined many squatters. Strange to think that the Ryries' misfortune gave rise to a Yering product even more famous than the acclaimed wine, marathon champion, Robert de Castella! Perhaps descendants of pioneering Yering families might like to provide information about their families' contributions in the early days of the area. I have made a start in the first comment box with a tribute by the Yering correspondent to the area's pioneers and mention of the departure of the teacher, Mr Lohan (who obviously had been at the Yering school for some time.) As people add their stories, I will include their ancestors' surnames to the surnames list as I have done with Mr Lohans.
PIONEER SURNAME INDEX.
WILLIAM WESTGARTH'S VISIT.
Another pleasant trip about this time was to Yering, the Ryries'
station, situated nearly half-way up to the cool mountainous sources of
the River Yarra. This had already been made a charming home to any
contented mind, satisfied to fall back upon country resources. It was a
cattle station, for, in the thickly wooded hills, hollows, and flats
about sheep could not live--at least, to any purpose--and the homestead
had the importance of a little straggling street, with the main dwelling
at the top, as the end of a cul-de-sac, and the dairy and what not in
marshalled line below. We revelled in pastoral abundance. I wandered
into the adjacent woods, experiencing the sense of overpowering grandeur
amidst their vast solitudes, with the gum-trees rising straight above me
with colossal stems, not seldom 300 feet and more in height, and 100
feet, or even much more, from the ground without a branch. When this
"redgum" has elbow room, it expands in all variety of form, attaining in
favouring circumstances vast dimensions, as in one example met with in
the Dandenong Ranges, which measured 480 feet in height. But in this
Yering case, crowded as they were impoverishingly together upon flats of
the river, they did not bulk out into such dimensions, but they shot up
side by side, straight as arrows, rivals en route to the clouds. Sad
changes came to Yering's happy and hospitable owners since, for, like
many others, they had to "realize" in the bad times, and to quit a most
pleasant home. But Yering itself has thriven, and has since advanced
into a great wine-producing district, whose wines Mr. De Castella, its
later owner, has made to carry prizes even at European Exhibitions.
The Brokil Estate was the northern 1000 or so acres of Jamieson's Special Survey with its north east corner being the corner of Bulldog Creek and Foxeys Rds in Melway 151K11. LIME LAND LEISURE gives much detail about the purchase of the Survey in three parts by William John Turner "Big" Clarke and his sale of the northern part to John Vans Agnew Bruce. The following court case shows that Bruce owned the Brokil Estate by 1861 and that he had leased it by 1861 to tenants named Atkins and Ekins. In A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA, Colin McLear stated that Edwin Louis Tassell had settled on the Survey in 1861, which is now obviously incorrect. Tassell was not the first lessee of Bruce's estate but was the first to pay rates on it. Tassells Creek, originally called Bruce's Creek in a lease advertisement following Tassell's death (see my journal SAFETY BEACH AND THE SURVEY) was the Port Phillip Bay end of Brokil Creek. It is not clear when Atkins and Ekins commenced their lease but the purpose of this journal is to make clear that they were leasing the property from Bruce before Tassell.
Leslie Moorhead stated in OSBORNE STATE SCHOOL that Henry Dunn had leased the Mount Martha Sheep Station, which had consisted of James Hearn's extensive grants (between Ellerina Rd and Watsons Drive)and the survey. Colin McLear stated that Dunn had leased the survey from 1846 to 1851. Bruce calls his estate the Mt Martha Sheep Station in his testimony.
BRUCE V ATKINS AND EKINS (BOTTOM OF COLUMN 4, P.7,ARGUS, 20-12-1861.)
BRUCE V. ATKINS AND EKINS.
A motion on behalf of tho plaintiff, a lessor, to restrain the defendants, lessees, from cutting timber trees on land leased to them for five yoars on tbe Mount Martha Station, at Dromana. Mr, J. W. Stephen for the plaintiff, Mr.Abraham for Atkins, Mr, Billing for Ekins.
The case mado for the motion was substantially that the plaintiff had purchased about 1,100 acres of land, much covered with timber and scrub ; that he had improved the land by clearing about fifty acres, and putting up a hut and buildings, by fencing in 800 acres, and by cutting down somo portions of the timber, and preserving other portions of it, in such a way as at once to increaso the capability of the land for pasturage, to leave sufficient shade for cattle, and to increaso the beauty and ornamental value of the property ; that ho had let to Atkins, for five years, at Â£100, for pastoral purposes, and that Atkins and Ekins had, in partnership, begun to waste the estate by stripping it of its timber, in such a manner as to diminish its value for pastoral purposes, and as an ornamental estate.
The case for the defendants was, that they had leased the property as a farm, and for cultivation purposes ; that it was no waste of a farm to cut down the wood which they bad cut down ; that no wood properly called timber trees had been cut down, but only such wood as sheoak, swamp oak, cherry, honeysuckle, snd underwood-no
stringybark, or other wood fit for building purposes. The authorities cited were-Brooks v. Bedford, Viet. Law T., 101 ; Turner v. Jackson, Viet. Law T., 127; Duke of St. Albans v. -, 8 Beav.,354 ; Micklethwaite v. same, 1 De G. and J., 504 ; and Woodfall's L. and T.
His HONOUR.-In this case Mr. Bruce seems to have purchased about 1,000 acres of land in a situation and of a sort which in most countries would be called forest land. Ho improved it by fencing in the greater part of it, and-as he himself describes it-by clearing fifty acres of it of timber, and preparing it for crops.
He then leased it to one of the defendants, and the lease contains stipulations as to the " improvements" at the end of tho term. Having thus described what he meant by improving the land, he now seeks to restrain the tenant from doing the very thing which he has called an improvement-namely, the clearing of the land of
timber and preparing it for cultivation and crops.
He says that in cutting down the timber he saved certain trees, which he then, in his own mind,regarded as ornamental timber. Neither he nor they agreed in any way as to what should be preserved, but he alone was anxious in his own mind to preserve certain trees which he regarded as ornamental. He does not say that he communicated to his tenants that ornamental timber was to bo preserved, or what he regarded as ornamental; and we must now go, not by what he thinks or then thought, but by what he communicated to them as ornamental, and as to be preserved, because such. The case, therefore, so far as founded on any possiblo rights arising out of the ornamental timber, seems to be not sustained,and to rest very much on matter of fancy. But then, as between landlord and tenant, in the absence of anything communicated to ihe tenant the case must be considered on the terms of the written agreement itself.
No doubt there is a great difference in the position of the mother country and Victoria in this respect, that in the mother country it is the removal of timber from land which it is most often desired to guard against, whilst here the removal of timber was more often the object to be secured. But that makes it only the more necessary that the real intentions and interests of the landlord should be plainly stated, and guarded by
express stipulations, and not left to mere legal intendment from loose and vague provisions such as were used here. On the whole it will generally bo better here, notwithstanding the difference in this respect between the two countries, that in the construction of such agreements concerning land the same words shall be held to bear the same meaning in instruments in Victoria that those words bear in the mother country, and that parties be left to interpret themselves differently by express provisions where tbey use suoh words with different meanings.
In the mother country, under a lease for five years a tenant would have a right to cut down and romove all wood which does not come under tho denomination of timber, and no right to cut down anything that does. But there
remains the difficult question of what are timber trees here. This question is also left in a very vague condition on the particular facts of this case. I think I am generally to understand by timber trees all trees used for building purposes in the place where the timber is growing.
Some trees are timber in England everywhere; some are timber nowhere there; others are of a mixed nature, and are, according to the custom of the locality, timber in some parts and not timber in other parts of the country. There also the circumstance which determines whether the wood is timber is its use for building purposes only ; not, I believe, its use for fencing purposes, as has been argued here. Now I cannot take
judicial notice of what sorts of wood are timber trees here, either generally or in particular localities. It must be left for the parties to show that by evidence in each case.
The plaintiff has here sought to restrain the defendants from cutting all trees : he has so for certainly asked more than he is entitled to : and it was for him to give evidence in support of his application ; to define
his right, and the extent to which it has suffered, and the remedy which he seeks to enforce. He has not defined what classes of trees are timber,or what timber trees have been cut down. The defendants, on the other hand, do give some information as to one class of trees whioh they seem to admit are timber trees, by saying that only stringybark trees are such in this locality, and none others. That evidence comes, however, from the defendants themselves, and I do not think I ought to take it so as to preclude either party hereafter from better proof.
There are enough materials before me to justify me in granting an injunction confined in its terms to the stringybark trees only. Let an injunction go as to those. Costs of motion to be costs in the cause. By consent, the defendants to have liberty to remove what is already cut ; and [as we understood] to keep an account of all trees cut in future, because it may turn out at the hearing that other than stringybark trees are to be deemed timber-trees there.
PETER.âOn the 23rd inst., at her residence, Chandos, Broadmeadows, Mary, relict of the late John Peter,
formerly of Tubbo Station, New South Wales, aged 73 years. R.I.P. (p.1, Argus,25-9-1884.)
The Friends of the late Mrs. MARY PETER are invited to follow her remains to the Spencer-street railway station (en route to Wanga Wagga Cemetery).
The funeral will leave her late residence Chandos,Broadmeadows, THIS DAY (Friday, the 20th inst),at half-past 11 o'clock.(P.1,Argus, 26-9-1884.)
Chandos was one of the street names that I suggested for the Alanbrae Estate,the subdivision of "Willowbank" north of Kenny St and the old Broadmeadows Township, now known as Westmeadows.
John Peter bought "Chandos" from the grantee of sections 6 and 15, parish of Tullamarine, John Carre Riddell, the transaction recorded in the memorial volume 170 folio 2. It was part of Riddell and Hamilton's Camieston Estate. It fronted the west side of today's Mickleham Rd from the midline of Londrew Ct. and Freight Rd.(where it adjoined the Junction Estate) north to the Moonee Ponds Creek. Its western boundaries were Derby St (where it adjoined the one acre blocks in Hamilton Terrace)and Wright St (west of which were blocks of about 6 acres that were consolidated into farms such as Wallis Wright's Sunnyside and Charles Nash's Fairview.)
I had always assumed that Bent St in Broadmeadows Township was named after Tommy Bent, politician, but perhaps it was named after Ann Peter's brother.
BENT - On the 10th inst, at the residence of his sister, Mrs. J. Peters, Broadmeadows, John Bent,aged 68 years, NSW papers please copy. (P.1, Argus, 21-2-1880.)
THE Friends of the late Mr. JOHN BENT, are respectfully invited to follow his remains to the place of interment, Keilor Cemetery. The funeral will move from the residence of Mrs.J Peters, Broadmeadows, THIS DAY, 21st inst., at 3 o'clock. (P.5, Argus, 21-2-1880.)
The children of Broadmeadows Township had a favourite swimming hole on Chandos that they called Peterson's Hole. Rate records revealed that nobody named Peterson occupied Chandos so the hole most likely got its name because Mary Peter's son swam there.
Consisting of 467 acres, Chandos was mainly in section 6. John Cock who was leasing Gladstone (formerly Stewarton and now the northern 777 acres of Gladstone Park) bought Chandos from the Peter Estate and divided it into three farms which became known as Wright's "Strathconan", Bill Lockhart's "Springburn" and Percy Judd's "Chandos Park" of 142, about 188 and 123 acres respectively, Judd's being in section 15.
N.B. IN ONE OF MY JOURNALS ABOUT BROADMEADOWS I HAVE INCLUDED AN ARTICLE (FROM A BIT OF LOCAL HISTORY OF A NORTHERN AREA, WITHIN VICTORIA IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY), THAT CREDITED THE PETER FAMILY WITH BEING PIONEERS THERE AND MENTIONED THEIR BROADMEADOWS AND N.S.W.CONNECTIONS.
This journal,like many,arose from a private message. It was originally entitled A CONVERSATION ABOUT JAMES AND LAURENCE WHITE OF THE BALNARRING DISTRICT but as I have found just found much information about the so-called Mr Berriman from the so-called Euroa (who bought 160 acres from James White's estate in 1906) such as Eric Rundle purchasing Warrawee from his estate in 1950 (Balnarring Byways) and the lead he took in introducing agriculture to the district (P.2, Mornington and Dromana Standard, 3-7-1909), Louis is no longer a bit player in the story.
Hi We own Ealing Park which is 13 Turners Road Balnarring and was part of the original 90 acres of James White.
Do you know when it was selected and then freeholded?
Having checked in Melway,it would seem to me that No 13 is just south of the bend in Turners Rd halfway between Myers and Hunts Rds and on the east side of Turners Rd. Your property would probably be the northernmost portion of crown allotment 60A, parish of Bittern, located on the east corner of Myers and Turners Rds and extending north to the aforementioned bend, as does crown allotment 59B on the west corner. The latter was granted to L.White (probably Lawrence) on 27-9-1878. Crown allotment 60A was granted to John White, administrator (executor)of J.White (probably James) on 21-2-1900.
James White had obviously settled in the area by 1874 as the following shows but there is no proof that he was on either of the two crown allotments mentioned.
THE SCHNAPPER POINT MURDER. (BY OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.)
The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) Monday 14 September 1874 p 6 Article
I asked the prisoner when he had left "The Plains," meaning Moriarty's place, he said, " Yesterday " (Sunday). I said, "Where were you all night?" He replied, "I stopped with an old man, I got off the track." I asked the old man's name, and he said he could not tell me. I mentioned two men, James White and John McConnell, the only two single men that I knew on the track, and he said it was neither of them.
There is much detail about James and Lawrence White in one of the volumes of Balnarring Byways, available at the Rosebud Library and possibly at your local branch. I can't recall whether it specifies crown allotments or year of settlement but it may. I don't think the books are available for loan and if you will find it hard to access the books, give me a yell.
Yes, we are on the northern boundary of 60A and are occupants of a very old single storey weatherboard farmhouse, which presumably was built by the Whites, as it is quite a substantial building even now.
The building was probably built of timber milled on site, as it is quarter-sawn and the marks of the big saw are visible both on the structural timbers and the weatherboards. We are currently adding on to the house in the same style, with its ten foot ceilings. There are also two extant chimneys from the old house with hand-made bricks, which are also quite a feature.
Unfortunately the old buttery and cheesery are long gone, but looking for photos
I just found why John White, obviously not a son of James White, was administering the will of James in 1900. The hay might have been grown on 60A or another farm, of 160 acres, near Bittern station.
James White a well known resident of Balnarring, on Monday afternoon fell of a load of hay whilst loading a dray. He fell on his head and was instantaneously killed through the dislocation of his neck. Deceased was a single man. A post-mortem examination was conducted on Tuesday when a verdict of accidental death was returned. (P.3,Mornington Standard, 7-12-1899.)
While hunting for an obituary to find when 60A was settled or a legal notice to find John White's relationship to the deceased James,I found a bit of dirt on Lawrence White and his son,James - a sheep stealing charge.

I'll try to have a look at the Flinders Road District rates (1869-1874) tomorrow to find if James White was assessed on 95 (correction,90) acres and if not there, the Shire of Flinders and Kangerong rates from 1875. Net Annual Values usually give an indication of when a homestead was built and extended.
Thanks xxx, very interesting, regards John.
I'm afraid that it's going to be near-impossible to determine the age of any buildings on crown allotment 60A Bittern. Titles information might help but I doubt it because they mainly concern the location and dimensions/ area of the land. I've researched the White land in each year from 1869 to 1907 and then, knowing about Cr Terry's demand for properties to be described properly, in 1911 and 1913.
James White seems to have built a house in between the assessments of 1884 and 1885 when the nett annual value of his property rose from 20 pounds to 25 pounds. There was a further rise in N.A.V. to 28 pounds in the 1888 assessment which could have been caused by an addition to the house or a general increase in the value of farmland as this was the height of the land boom. The value of his land then remained unchanged until 1905 (after 60A Bittern had simply disappeared from the face of the earth.)
In the Flinders Road Board's first assessment of 1869, neither James nor Laurence White was mentioned in the Bittern division (parish.) In 1870, Laurence was leasing 95 acres (N.A.V. 5 pounds 5 shillings) from the Crown. In 1874,the N.A.V. rose to 6 pounds 6 shillings.
The first Flinders and Kangerong Shire assessment in 1875 does not record either of the Whites but the 1876 rates showed that Lawrence was still leasing the 95 acres at Bittern from the Crown,the N.A.V. rising to 9 pounds.As stated previously he received the grant for 59B at the end of 1878 and the rate collector acknowledged his ownership in 1880. The following year "buildings" raised the N.A.V.to 10 pounds. In 1905 the value of his property doubled, obviously because of a more substantial BUILDING. His assessment remained the same for the next two years. The disappearance of James White's 60A necessitated a jump to 1911 and I forgot to record Laurence's assessment in that year. In 1913, there was no assessment of Laurence but James White, the former 14 year old student charged with sheep stealing, was rated on 96 acres, c/a 59 B,Bittern, N.A.V. 24 pounds. It would be extremely likely that Laurence had been on 59B by the 1870 assessment.
In 1876, James White was rated on 160 acres, Balnarring, N.A.V. 12 pounds and he was recorded as the owner in 1877. The N.A.V. rose to 15 pounds in 1879 and 17 pounds in 1881 when he was rated on 250 acres,Bittern and Balnarring and buildings. Amazing! The addition of 60B Bittern, which James must have settled in late 1880 or early to mid 1881, had only lifted the NAV by 2 pounds. The rise to 20 pounds in 1882 would seem to have been well warranted. In 1885,it rose to 25 pounds and in 1888 to 28 pounds, possibly because of additions to buildings or rising values caused by the 1880's boom. The value of the 160 acres in the parish of Balnarring (near the station as mentioned previously) increased by 2 pounds in 1905.
In 1899, some effort had been made to identify the 160 acres in Balnarring,with 74A,74B being noted. This is nonsense as crown allotment 74 Balnarring is nowhere near the Bittern railway station, and in fact became the Red Hill Village Settlement. This is a problem to be solved at another time,60A Bittern being our focus. By 1901 John White was recorded as the owner of the 250 acres,now specified as 160 acres Balnarring (NAV 18 pounds),and 90 acres Bittern (NAV 10 pounds),still a total of 28 pounds.
In 1902 the executors of James White were assessed on 160 acres Balnarring and "William Myers owner" was written in the assessment for 90 acres, Bittern. I must be blind because I could find no Myers' assessment in 1903! However Mrs Myers was rated on 90 acres Bittern in 1905 and 1906. I wanted proof that Mrs Myers had 60A, so remembering Cr Terry's campaign for proper descriptions of properties, I jumped to 1911. Mrs Myers was assessed on 90 acres,c/a 60A Bittern! The NAV was 10 pounds so James White's supposed house of 1885 must have been on the 160 acres near the Bittern station, or, if it was on 60A, in a fairly dilapidated condition. It would seem that the extant buildings on your property were built by the Myers family.
My next message speculated that the 160 acres might have actually been in the parish of Bittern, one of two blocks of roughly that size to the north / north west of 60A Bittern and granted to William Myers. Further rate research has proved that not to be the case.
THERE WAS NO HOUSE ON 60a BITTERN EVEN IN THE LAST RATE RECORD AVAILABLE ON MICROFICHE, 1919. The Myer family had occupied 60a since 1902 and in every assessment up to 1919,no house was mentioned, as had always been the case. Strangely no house was mentioned in the 1905 advertisement for the 160 acres that Mr Berryman bought many months later in mid 1906.
JAMES WHITE'S 160 ACRES (PART OF L.J. BERRYMAN'S 206 ACRES.)
It as if everyone had conspired to make it impossible to identify the 160 acres, Balnarring (parish)on which James White was rated in the first Flinders Road Board assessment of 1869. If it was not for Westley's 1905 advertisement and the two 1906 sales reports,the location could never have been identified. Berryman was assessed on 206 acres 18b Sub Crown allotment 26 Balnarring from 1906 to 1911 so he had to have owned James White's 160 acres (actually 154 acres, 3 roods 0 perches; 26AB, fronting the west side of Warrawee Rd)and 46 acres of 18B,immediately north, of 54 acres 3 roods and 6 perches.
What doesn't make sense is J.G.Benton was granted 26A, 26 B and 18B,the last on 15-10-1880 and issue dates for the others not stated, while James White was assessed on his 160 acres from 1869,combined with the 90 acre 60A Bittern as 250 acres from 1881. It was not until 1901, with James White's executor,Lawrence White's eldest son, John,listed as the owner of both that the composition of the 250 acres was revealed. It would then appear that James leased the 160 acres from the Crown until 1880 and then leased or bought it from Benton in 1881. A complication is that James Benton was assessed on 151 acres Balnarring NEAR PAUL VANSUYLEN until at least 1870 at the same time as James White was assessed on 160 acres.
From 1912,Louis Joshua Berryman was assessed on 26AB, now described as 155 acres (only 20 metres x 50 metres more than the exact area)and Mrs Annie Jane Berryman on 17AB and 18AB of 177 acres,north to 192 J-K1 fronting Balnarring Rd. In 1919 this remained the same (A.N. 2909 and 2910) but Louis (2911) was alsorted on lots 38-42,46, 47,part crown allotment 27,about 60 acres and buildings,Balnarring. One of the BUILDINGS was the WARRAWEE HOMESTEAD, 27AB being the triangle whose west side is indicated by Warrawee Rd.

LOUIS JOSHUA BERRYMAN.
The Balnarring District. PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENTS.
Mornington and Dromana Standard (Vic. : 1908 - 1911) Saturday 3 July 1909 p 2 Article
The Balnarring district, situated on the Southern end of the Mornington peninsula, affords proof that even
rich lands, when held in large areas,may fail to be a beneficial investment. Notwithstanding that the district is within a mile or two of the Bittern railway station, that it is not more than forty miles distant from Melbourne, that the rainfall is ample and well distributed, and that being near the sea ensures an equable and mild climate,yet it is notable that the holders of large estates in Balnarring and neighborhood have not prospered. As compared with smaller holdings of from 100 to 300 acres in area, these large properties do not make a favorable showing. Generally the fences are in disrepair, the ground is covered with fern and scrub, rabbits abound,and there is a general air of down at the heels.
The explanation of this state of affairs is easily stated. Some twenty years ago Balnarring was regarded as
good grazing country. Sheep and cattle flourished on the natural grasses, and those who had large holdings
were able to put them to profitable use. In those days there were no rabbits. About fifteen years ago this
pest made its appearance in the district, and finding the country to its liking rapidly increased in numbers.
Soon the rabbits practically took possession of the whole countryside.
They ate down and destroyed the more succulent grasses, and. with their disappearance went the utility of the
country from a grazing point of view. Then, as the rabbits kept down the more nutritious herbage, coarser
growths began to assert themselves. Bracken and shrubs continued to make headway, until to-day some thousands
of acres of fertile land in Balnarring are thus rendered temporarily valueless to either the individual or the community. Many of the large estate owners have apparently abandoned the fight, and it is the reverse of a
pleasing experience in driving along the main road from Bittern to Flinders to pass mile after mile of beautiful rich land capable of sustaining a large population, but now overgrown with fern and rubbish, practically given over to the rabbits.
IMPROVING THE POSITION.
Within the past five years some northern farmers have come into the district, and by bringing the plough
into use have demonstrated what the soils of the district will yield under proper treatment. Previous, however, to undertaking any tillage work they have completely wire-netted their holdings in order to keep the rabbits
out. With this immunity secured they have then cleaned up the harbor on their own land, and by ferreting and poisoning have effectually put an end to the rabbit trouble. These newer agriculturists have confined their purchases to areas of from 160 to 300 acres, the conclusions of the more experienced men being that the former
acreage is ample for one man to adequately work. The new settlers hail from the Western plains and the mallee, and all express themselves as well satisfied with the results already obtained.
A typical representative of the new settlers is found in Mr L. J. Berryman, formerly of the Western plains,
his previous home being about eight miles south of Buangor. This settler's holding is within about four miles of the Bittern railway station, and consists of less than 300 acres of average quality land. When he took
possession his first work was to wire net, and then dig out the rabbits. Next he commenced to plough up what has been previously regarded as only fit for grass. This evoked the ridicule of other settlers, and he was
warned that by turning up the sod he would destroy the grass. It was also maintained that his experiences with
cropping would be unsatisfactory, because, as it was asserted, the land was not fit for cultivation. Mr Berryman preferred to find out by actual experience, and he worked the soil on the thorough lines which his previous experience had proved successful. The results turned out exceptionally good, and having now been repeated for four years fully justify the verdict that the Balnarring soils, when properly tilled, will yield regular and remunerative crops.
THE FARMING PRACTICE.
Mr Berryman's experience has demonstrated that mixed farming easily pays best. Rape thrives especially well in the Balnarring district, and this year there are several hundred acres thus seeded. In every case the plants are vigorous and forward, ranging, on the occasion of the writer's visit (the first week of June), from a
foot to eighteen inches in height. In every case they were easily carrying from 10 to 12 large crossbred sheep
to the acre. The association of sheep raising with grain growing is, in Mr Berryman's experience, the most profitable use to which the land can be put.Last year on 28 acres he obtained a heavy yield of Algerian oats and wheat mixed,thick,well headed and weighty. The average was 4 tons to the acre. The same field was ploughedup again in March, after the sheep had been given a good chance at the stubble.It was again reseeded with 3 lb. of rape to the acre in April, and the resulting growth was so substantial that by the middle of May he was carrying over eight large framed crossbred sheep to the acre. At the same time another 28 acres of new,roughly cleared land was put in with rape, and, although the growth here is not so good as on the stubble, 410 large sheep were being easily carried on this 50 acres.(etc.)
THE BLUE LOOKOUT by Jean Bryant (Transcribed from BALNARRING BYWAYS AND MEMORIES,VOLUME ,PAGE 47.)
In the 1890's James WHYTE and Laurence WHYTE and their famil(ies?) lived on a property at the top of a hill in Balnarring Rd south of Hunts Rd. It was called the Blue lookout and there were TWO houses on the property. On the 4th December 1899, Jim fell off a load of hay and was killed. He was helping his neighbour,MrTullis, to get in his hay. Dick Oswin,another neighbour helping had to then ride to Schnapper Point for the doctor and then on to Dromana for a policeman,only to find that the policeman had gone to Hastings.He went to Hastings the next day only to find the policeman had gone to Schnapper Point. (Jean mentioned that we take modern communication for granted!)
Larry Whyte and his wife Mary Anne (nee Bourke)had three sons,John (Jack),Patrick, James, and a daughter, Mary Ann. John and Pat,being old enough,went to the Boer War.Jim ran the property consisting of the usual sheep,cows and orchards but mostly the interest lay in horses. Jim bred horses and had a big stud stallion.He was a great horseman and went to Swan Hill and other places showing thoroughbreds for which he had many prizes.He married Elsie (Hinze CHECK, CAN'T READ MY SCRIBBLE)and had a daughter, Joan,and three younger boys. They used to delight in sitting on the corral fence rail and watch their father break in the horses. When Jim took the sheep to the market the family would follow in the jinker. The children went to Bittern West School in Hunt's Rd by pony.
In 1927,Jim was breaking in a circus pony which used to go under low branches to try and dislodge the rider. One night he did not return home and when his wife looked for him next morning she found him already dead. He was only 44 years old. (PHOTO OF ELSIE AND JIM ON THEIR HORSES.) Mrs Whyte had been expecting a baby and he was born on the day of the burial. Michael only lived for 18 months. Because Jim's two brothers were now settled in the city,the property was sold and Elsie took her family to the city too. Joan was eight years old at the time of the tragedy. In later years,she returned to nearby Hastings and with her husband Dick Bryant raised five children.

JOURNEAUX SEARCHES,LOCATION OF GROUVILLE.
I remember how disappointed I was when I found how few headstones of the early pioneers survive and how recent were the burials actually recorded for the Dromana Cemetery. According to Gemma Wiseman's photo, the cemetery dates from 1854.
There is no Wikipedia entry for the cemetery and a trove search, confined to the 1850's, for DROMANA CEMETERY produced not one result. The purpose of this journal is to search trove for the burial of early pioneers such as Lawrence (Waddeson?), Watson Eaton and Abraham Griffith, Watson dying as a result of a fall from a horse and Lawrence and Abraham's carts overturning. In years to come, some detail might be recorded about those listed by ngairedith.

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

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

UNKNOWN MAN. Burial 23-7-1891.
A DEAD BODY WASHED ASHORE.
The dead body of a man was found here by Constable Fowler's little boys early this morning, having been washed up on the beach below Allison's Arthur's Seat Hotel. It had evidently been in the water for some days, the hands and face being disfigured beyond recognition. The deceased wore a diagonal cloth coat and vest, and dark-
striped trousers ; and in the pockets were found three sovereigns, a half sovereign, a shilling and two threepenny pieces, a small knife with a pearl handle, and a small calendar. The deceased was a man of stout
build, about 5ft. 7in. high, and apparently of middle age. Mr. N. Rudduck, J. P., held a magisterial inquiry to-day, when a verdict of found drowned was returned. The deceased was interred in the Dromana Cemetery this afternoon. The clothing and other articles remain in the possession of the police awaiting identification.
(P.6, Argus, Friday, 24-7-1891.)
N.B. More bodies were being found during the 1890's depression than gold.
Constable Jones is of opinion that the body is that of George Pierce James Hume, a mining man well known in Melbourne, who was reported as missing on 5th April last. (P.3,Mornington Standard, 22-7-1897.)
Constable Jones was obviously right and Hume's funeral left from his residence in Oakleigh. He was not buried at Dromana.
Family tree circle's ngairedith has conveniently put all recorded burials into one journal. Most of the information probably resulted from the dedication displayed by Thelma Littlejohn and Bev Laurissen in transcribing inscriptions on surviving headstones.

JAMES, Charles - 1907 DROMANA.
The death occurred at Mornington on Wednesday week last of Mr. Charles James, a very old and respected resident of this district at the advanced age of 84 years. Deceased has been in indifferent health for some time past, and was living with his wife at Rosebud, prior to his demise.
Deceased, who hailed from England, has been a colonist for upwards of 60 years. After leaving his native land,
he engaged in the merchant service, and visited different ports on the American continent. After his arrival
in Victoria, he worked on a trading vessel plying between Melbourne and Geelong and subsequently came to reside on the Peninsula, where he was esteemed as an honorable man. The body was interred in the Dromana cemetery on Thursday last. He leaves behind to morn their loss a respected wife, and a family of four sons and two daughters. Mr. Welling, Presbyterian minister conducted the burial service, and the funeral arrangements
were carried out by Mr. J. D. Grover, of Mornington. (P.2, Mornington Standard, Saturday, 2-2-1907.)
The James family settled on crown allotment 19A, section B,Wannaeue ***(Melway 254 J J2) fronting Old Main Creek Rd and Barkers Rd. One of his daughters married William Hobley* and a son married Janet White, sister of Blooming Bob White (unfortunately after their son, Robert, was born and named Robert White on the birth certificate**.) Brought up as Robert James, under which name he was granted 27A Wannaeue***, he needed the certificate to marry Miss Roberts and adopted his birth name instead. To prevent confusion with his uncle,he was dubbed Bullocky Bob White.
(Sources:* FREDERICK HOBLEY WAS A PROMINENT...Frederick's father was William Henry Hobley, who was born at Schnapper Point(Mornington)on the Mornington Peninsula,Victoria,Australia in 1857. William married Elizabeth James at Main Creek on the Peninsula on 11-6-1884.By 1885 William and Elizabeth were settled at Rosebud on land for which William received the grant in 1890.
**Jean Rotherham. ***Wannaeue parish map.)
Donald James was buried at Frankston. The Whites and Hobleys were well represented.

HISTORY OF DROMANA TO PORTSEA, MORNINGTON PENINSULA, VICTORIA. SAY G'DAY TO OLD FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.
When I started researching Mornington Peninsula history in about August 2011, I did not know one descendant of pioneering families. My first contact was probably a Lacco descendant who ran a flower shop in Rosebud,who, I think, had been mentioned in Peter Wilson's ON THE ROAD TO ROSEBUD. The lady barber near Murray Anderson Rd showed me a map of early Rosebud showing where early residents lived and finally remembered that Harvey Marshall, a descendant of Captain Henry Everest Adams had given it to her; that led to a book called ADAMS' CORNER based on much information in Harvey's scrapbook.Harvey also put me in touch with Jim Dryden. After joining the Dromana Historical Society, I was given much information by Thelma Littlejohn who also put me onto Keith Holmes. I read Leila Shaw's THE WAY WE WERE and as a result became intrigued about a possible connection between Henry Gomm of Rosebud and Henry Gomm of Somerville, and winning my game of white pages lotto,got in touch with Murray Gomm whose tea chest is packed with history; THE MYSTERIOUS HENRY GOMM resulted. At about the same time Shirley Walter of Frankston responded to my DESPERATELY SEEKING request and THE FEMALE DROVER; A HISTORY OF MOOROODUC resulted,contact with other descendants of pioneers such as David Shepherd being made in the process, with my book about Joseph Porta, Victoria's first manufacturer of bellows resulting and being expanded by an article at the West Rosebud Bowling Club about Ron Porta, a team mate of Teddy Whitten at Footscray. Another who responded to my DESPERATELY SEEKING request was a Trueman descendant who led me to Raymond Guest, who led me to Ron Doig (a Rowley descendant) both of whom explained the origins of many street names on the Trueman grants at Tootgarook, and Ron led me to an extensive Trueman genealogy. Since then many more contacts have been added with Linda Berndt of Rye and Val Wilson of Mornington, and family tree circles members responding to my journals,providing incredible information. The author of BONNIE WILLIAM OF DUNDEE and Stephen Lynch of N.S.W who wrote PENINSULA PIONEERS about the White and Hillis families became contacts. The BACK TO RED HILL on 22-3-2015 was a response to a request for information about Red Hill's history after about 1940, and terrific memoirs were contributed to MEMORIES OF RED HILL POST 1940.
AND YET, AND YET, I have made more contacts with descendants of Peninsula pioneers in the last fortnight than I did in those (nearly) four years. Importantly they cover all eras of the area's history.There are well over 2000 members in the HISTORY OF DROMANA TO PORTSEA FACEBOOK GROUP. If you're on Facebook, and either grew up in the area or are a descendant of a pioneering family, and would like to join the group, send me a private message with your email address and I'll email you the link.

Castlemaine Historical Society
The Castlemaine Historical Society was formed in 1965 to study, record and promote the historical heritage of Castlemaine and District. It operated for many years from temporary premises in various locations. In 1996 the Society was granted a lease to its present home in the historic Former Court House.
Meetings (with interesting guest speakers), exhibitions, a monthly newsletter, guided tours, the development, cataloguing and maintenance of an historic archive collection, indexing of records and the provision of a research service are the major activities of the members.
Archives held by the Society include early directories, voters lists, local newspaper index and some records and indexes concerning mining leases, rates, schools, churches and cemeteries.
The Society's records cover many localities including
Mt. Alexander, Forest Creek, Fryerstown, Vaughan, Campbells Creek, Barkers Creek, Chewton, Moonlight Flat, Harcourt, Muckleford, Walmer, Yapeen, Guildford
This journal and the Maldon journal were prompted by a nostalgic visit to both places a few days ago. I was involved at Castlemaine from 1965 till the end of 1967,living at the Thompson's Foundry Boarding house for the first two years while I taught at Franklinford and continuing my involvement in 1967 when I transferred to Maldon and lived three houses away from that school.
Moving back to Melbourne,I discovered that I was a different person from the teacher who had left the Big Smoke. People looked at me aghast when I said hello. It had been the norm in Castlemaine; in the process of walking one block there,it was not unusual to take half an hour and engage in three or four conversations.
Walking from the boarding house to St Mary's and later the Drill Hall to play or referee basketball was a most joyful activity but I had to allow at least half an hour to reach my destination because of the friendliness of Castlemaine residents. The beauty of the trees and wonderful historic buildings had me floating rather than walking until I reached the conversation zone. I hadn't realised until now that it was Castlemaine that gave me my love of local history. The Castlemaine residents would seem to be as lovely as ever, judging by the following incident. I can imagine what would have happened in Melbourne if I'd asked a stranger there about an old building.
EXCERPT FROM AN EMAIL.
Just for example, I wonder how many people in Castlemaine are aware of the history of THE HUB. A fellow called Neil (Heather's husband) has written the history of this building which was originally the single storeyed Council Club Hotel,with the second storey added shortly after 1900.
This information resulted from a casual question about the history of the building posed to a total stranger, the response to which showed why I have loved Castlemaine since I first met her in 1965. It is not only the historic buildings but also the friendliness and helpfulness of her people that make Castlemaine so special!
This stranger, a Castlemaine resident for 30 years and, while now living in Bendigo for more affordable accommodation, is adamant that the Maine is still the centre of her life, gave me what she knew, rang her husband, took me down Barker St a bit to an old friend, and at her suggestion took me to see Heather at the nursery next to The Hub (who told me what she knew and then rang her husband Neil to confirm this).
In researching the Maldon journal, I noticed that Dr.Preshaw was the coroner in early inquests at Maldon. His name more than any other has lingered in my memory from my reading of Castlemaine's history. His contemporaries had obviously formed the same opinion of him as I had.
SUDDEN DEATH OF DR. PRESHAW.
CORONER AT CASTLEMAINE.
Yesterday forenoon, Dr. Pounds, the district coroner, received a telegram from Mr. Colles, the sheriff of Castlemaine, announcing the sudden death of Dr. Preshaw, the coroner for the Castlemaine district, and requesting him (Dr Pounds) to attend at Castlemaine to hold an inquest on Long Poy, the Chinaman who is to be executed to-day. The news of the death of Dr Preshaw, on being circulated in Sandhurst, was received
with feelings of deep regret by many here to whom the deceased was personally known.
We extract the following notice of his death from the Castlemaine Daily News of yesterday:â
"The announcement of the very sudden death this morning of one of the oldest and most respected inhabitants of Castlemaine, namely, William Fisher Preshaw, Esq., Coroner, will be received with deep and wide-spread regret. It was only last night the deceased gentleman addressed a large audience in the Mechanics' Institution building, proposing in the most cheerful terms a vote of thanks to the ladies for the tea provided by them at the Presbyterian soiree, and appeared at the time to be in the enjoyment of full health and spirits. This morning, at half-past eight o'clock, just before entering upon the duties of the day, suddenly, and without a moment's warning, he dropped from his seat in his own house, and expired almost instantaneously. The cause
of death is stated to be disease of the heart.
The deceased was a Scotchman. He was always remarkable for his activity and earnestness in any movement for the general weal. He frequently lectured at Edinburgh and other places on behalf of charitable objects. Here, amongst us he was ever most conspicuous as a man of benevolence, and famous for his general usefulness as a prominent and leading citizen.
He came to this colony in the year 1851, and arrived on the old Forest Creek diggings in company with the Rev. Mr Lowe, who is now acting as Presbyterian pastor at Guildford. For some considerable time he held the honorary post of returning officer for the North-western Province, and it was only when he found his duties too numerous for his failing strength that he resigned it and was succeeded by Dr Mackay. On the death of Dr Howlett, some years ago, Dr Preshaw was appointed to fill his office, as coroner, which post he has held ever since. It is understood that the deceased had a life policy for some L1,000, but whether his family will derive any
substantial assistance from it is not known." (P.2,Bendigo Advertiser, 8-3-1866.)
ANOTHER CASTLEMAINE RESIDENT OF WHOM I FORMED A SIMILAR OPINION WAS GEOFF BRYCE.
Just as Castlemaine residents would be grateful that my late father in law, Jim Howarth,brought television to Castlemaine there would be many dribbling youngsters in Castlemaine who would be grateful to another S.E.C. employee for bringing basketball to the Maine, IF THEY KNEW THE STORY! The Mail had an article about a special milestone of the basketball association and I wrote to the association to tell the story. Not having received a reply, I stumbled across the Castlemaine Mail facebook page and wrote this post.
Having spent three wonderful years in Castlemaine from 1965 to 1967, I was involved in the formation of the Castlemaine Basketball Association, being one of the few who had played the game before. I sent an email to the Association a year or two ago giving some of its early history, particularly in regard to recognition of the bloke who got it all going, but I did not receive a reply.
I was doing a nostalgic google search regarding some of my mates from that era when I discovered that the founder, Geoff Bryce, was life member No. 57 of the Castlemaine Football Club. If he was made a life member of the footy club, he has to be a legend of the basketball association; I hope that is the case!
Geoff worked at the S.E.C. and despite having lost a couple of fingers, his skills were a model for all players to emulate. But above all, his drive and enthusiasm enabled the association to grow from nothing. We played our first seasons on an outdoor court at St Mary's school and later gained the use of the drill hall, a far cry from the facilities that players enjoy today.
Two of the original teams were High School and, believe it or not, Foster's United. I coached High School, which included David Broad, Robbie Ross and his brother Peter (Poss.), and also later had a female team. The experienced players carried a heavy load, having to also referee all the games.
Sadly, Jim Berry, a policeman, who was virtually Geoff's right hand man in those early days, was killed in an accident, as was Ken (Lanky) Howarth.
If it has not already been done, I hope that due recognition will be given to Geoff Bryce for the fantastic job that he did starting basketball in Castlemaine.
Although I didn't notice it on my recent visit, this is another piece of Castlemaine's history etched in my memory. I can't remember whether the monument includes a statue but I do remember the pride that Castlemaine felt in one its citizens becoming Premier.

John Roth,a most dependable full back was one of my favourite Castlemaine players.He was a teacher (a trade teacher at Castlemaine Tech if I remember correctly.) Mal Stevens was retired but he was a legend in the mind of those who knew. Mal was a premiership coach in the Maryborough-Castlemaine Football League, as, to my surprise,was Rex Beach, my cricket captain at Maldon in 1967.
Bendigo Football League
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bendigo Football League is an Australian rules football competition based in the Bendigo region of Victoria, Australia.
A full grandstand at the Queen Elizabeth Oval for the 2007 Grand Final of the Bendigo Football League.
Formed in 1880, it is one of the oldest football leagues in Australia, and among its members are some of the oldest football clubs in Australia, including the Castlemaine Football Club, acknowledged as the second oldest football club in Australia and one of the oldest football clubs in the world.
I'd boundary umpired on the V.F.L.Reserve Grade list while at Teachers' College but when temporarily posted to the Ballan area, joined the Essendon District F.L. umpires under the legendary Puffer Sawyer as a field umpire and in one year boundary umpired the A Grade and B Grade Grand Finals on successive days. I was not the only new recruit from the bush,being joined by many Ballarat umpires who had gone on strike. In 1965, I was posted to Franklinford and joined the Bendigo umpires as a boundary umpire under a strange system. Each club supplied two boundaries who ran in only home games; this was probably to save travelling expenses because the league stretched north from Kyneton to Rochester and Echuca.
I did most of my training at Camp Reserve and soon got to know most of the players. Killer Kaine,ex-Hawthorn hard man was the coach in 1965. Kevin Delmenico dominated and was soon off to Footscray. It is most likely that
Kevin had a connection to his Maine team mate, Ian Sartori, Ronald Dale Barrassi,Jack Gervasoni (Fitzroy) and Tony Polinelli (Geelong.) The Swiss Italian pioneers had a strong representation at Hepburn, spreading to Yandoit and Guildford later. See:
Swiss Italians of Australia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tony Polinelli and Jack Gervasoni played for Ballarat League clubs before being recruited to the V.F.L. but certainly had a connection to Castlemaine. The late Charlie Polinelli, a well-regarded Castlemaine resident for many decades, stalwart of the Anglers Club and war historian, was descended,if I remember correctly, from both families- residents of Yandoit- and his sister married Bruce Warren, from the Harcourt orchardist family; they also lived in Castlemaine,in Myring St and then near the STEEP Mt Alexander Golf Course,for years before moving to the peninsula after Bruce retired from a senior position at the Harris Bacon Factory. Their son,Peter,is my brother in law, having married Val's sister,Roslyn Howarth.
In 1966,Derek Cowen took over as coach and Robbie Thompson was a young star. Derek's son is the principal at Warrnambool Primary School.
Derek Cowen (born 20 April 1939) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with North Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL).
A ruckman, Cowen was recruited to North Melbourne from West Coburg. He played 17 of a possible 18 games in 1960 but struggled with injuries over the next few seasons.
In 1963 he joined Irymple for a two year stint as playing coach. Cowen then coached Castlemaine to the 1966 Bendigo Football League premiership. He also won back to back Michelsen Medals while at Castlemaine, which are awarded to the league's Best and Fairest player, in 1966 and 1967.
Both David Broad and Robbie Ross were young stars. Both were defenders but both had their work cut out for them when opposing Kyneton's Tarz Plowman. Although built like a brick OUThouse, he could lead like Tony Lockett despite looking like North Melbourne's Galloping Gasometer,Mick Nolan. He'd pick up a too-short pass and dish it off by hand to either side like lightning. And when the ball came high to a contest,poor Robbie Ross leapt so high he needed oxygen but because Tarz was so large from bow to stern, Robbie's fist had no hope of reaching the footy to spoil.
The Castlemaine players were my mates and I didn't want to report them. To be fair that meant I didn't want to report their opponents either. Thus I learnt to read the warning signs and warn players that they were being watched when I observed those signs. My motto was "Nip it in the bud." Steve Parsons, an enthusiastic participant in the Windy Hill BLOODBATH while playing for Richmond, was trundling the ball near the left half back boundary in the V.F.A. second division grand final when it finally went out. Instructed to throw it in, I instead placed my body in front of Steve and told him to cool down; he had a murderous look in his eye. The replay showed a round-arm whack to his guts that I had not seen because my focus was on the ball and the line.My friendship with the Castlemaine players had prevented Steven from being reported!
Castlemaine Football Club - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Castlemaine Football Club was formed on June 15, 1859 at the Supreme Court Hotel and chaired by T Butterworth. Castlemaine played its first match on June 22, 1859 on the Cricket Ground Barkers Creek.
The club was formed in an era before codified rules organised competition, but according to some sources, including Graeme Atkinson, "football" was popular in the goldfields region. Records for the foundation date was discovered in 2007 which rewrote history as many had previously believed the Geelong Football Club to be formed earlier.
Without a league to participate in, the club was an irregular competitor during its first decade.
The original uniform was a white cap with royal-blue Maltese cross.
In 1925, Castlemaine joined the Bendigo Football League.

***Wally?-Rings a bell!
2006 - Wally Culpitt, a legend at Hawthorn and Castlemaine
AS a small boy in the Melbourne inner suburb of Richmond, Wally Culpitt was always getting into trouble from his mother for forgetting to run errands after school.
The reason he used to forget the messages â he could not pass cricket or football practice sessions until they finished.
His interest paid dividends. When he got beyond the running messages stage he qualified for the leading teams in both cricket and football with Hawthorn.
Culpitt became affectionately known as âSandgroperâ because he had been born in WA, but at the age of three moved to Victoria with his parents.
He was born at Mt. Hawthorn a few miles north of Perth, so it seemed a natural progression Wally would star with Hawthorn in his later years in Melbourne.
He first came into his own at school when he captained the Richmond State School football and cricket teams at the age of 10.
^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^
NO one asked him to play with Hawthorn â¦. he just attached himself to the club.
He played football with the East Hawthorn Collegians in Melbourneâs Eastern Suburban League, but cartilage problems even at this early career stage curtailed his enthusiasm for the bigger matches.
But it was when Carlton began to show interest in Culpitt that Hawthorn officials decided it was time to act.
That led to Culpittâs nine years of VFL football for the Hawks for a total of 125 games, interrupted by two years of duty with a RAAF Catalina squadron in Darwin.
The RAAF duty fell during the years of World War 2.
Culpitt was one of those most sought after footballers who can play in a number of positions on the field. He starred at full-back, but was equally at home at full-forward.
Even though he stood at just 178 cm (5 ft 10 ins) Culpitt was a fine key position player.
In his debut game as a full-forward against Melbourne the âSandgroperâ booted 9.8 and was chaired off the ground as if he had captained a premiership side.
That was the year (1943) Hawthorn almost made the final four. They had only to beat North Melbourne in the concluding home-andâaway game, but lost by a point to finish fifth: 7.16 (58) to Northâs 8.11 (59).
The Hawks had gone into the match without Culpitt who had been posted to West Australia with his squadron the night before the key match.
After the war he returned to Hawthorn and made the Victorian side seven times after becoming widely acclaimed as a class full-back. He was in the 1947 VFL side which won the national carnival in Hobart.
Culpitt played alongside such Australian Rules legends as Lou Richards, Alan Ruthven, Phonse Kyne, Bert Deacon, Fred Flanagan, Les Foote and Max Oppy.
Kevin Curran, later an opposition coach for Culpitt in the Bendigo Football League, was also a member of the famous 1947 VFL side.
Minor injuries towards the end of the 1947 season probably cost Culpitt that seasonâs Brownlow Medal. He had to leave the ground on numerous occasions and finished equal third to Carltonâs Bert Deacon in the final Brownlow count.
He always said that he was more than satisfied, however, when he took out Hawthornâs best and fairest award and finished in the top six on the VFL goalkicking table.
One of Culpittâs greatest sporting moments was representing Hawthorn-East Melbourne against South Melbourne. The Aussie Test team had just returned from its 1948 all-conquering tour of England and he was pitted against Australian spinner Ian Johnson.
Wally sent four of Johnsonâs deliveries into the nearby bowling greens for four sixes. After the first six landed in the middle of the green the bowlers knocked off to watch.
One of them caught the third Johnson delivery to disappear over the fence. It was quoted in the Melbourne press Johnson didnât feel so bad when in the very next match Culpitt showed the same disrespect for Richmond and Australian leg spinner Doug Ring.
Culpitt dispatched Ring for five sixes in Hawthorn-East Melbourneâs next outing.
In 1948 Culpitt became the highest ever paid football coach to accept a post in the country when he went to Wimmera League club Minyip for Â£20 a week, a fortune in post World War 2 Victoria.
It was a sound investment by Minyip. The club made the finals during the two seasons he coached them and broke two Wimmera League records.
Minyip beat Stawell at Stawell for the first time in 28 years and also beat every other club in the competition at least once â a feat previously unheard of at Minyip.
In 1950 aged 31, Culpitt arrived in the Bendigo Football League as coach of Kyneton. The move from Minyip, where he was accorded a civic farewell, was made because of the higher educational facilities available to Culpittâs family.
His time at the Kyneton Tigers was not a happy one and in 1952 he moved on to Castlemaine. This was a master stroke by Culpitt as he captain-coached the BFLâs Magpies to their first flag in 26 years.
Castlemaine defeated Sandhurst, led by his old Hawthorn teammate Kevin Curran, in a great grand final by 29 points: 15.9 (99) to 9.16 (70).
A highlight of the premiership celebrations was the team parade through Castlemaineâs main streets on the Saturday night. A circus was in town so players travelled down the streets atop elephants.
Culpitt was retained as captain-coach in 1953, but before the start of the season fell eight metres from a telegraph pole in a workplace accident.
His injuries meant he played only a handful of matches in 1953.
John Harris, John and Graeme Bassett and George Skinner, Charlie Oliver (North Castlemaine), Campbells Creek afternoon teas,Rex Beach (Maldon),David Broad (Barkers Creek), Max Glen(Guildford.)
Charlie Oliver was my hero. I couldn't wait to see the Sport reports in the Mail to see what miracles he had performed for Newstead in footy and North Castlemaine in cricket.The sad thing is that I never saw him play either sport and I was devastated to read that he had lost an arm.It was no surprise at all that Carlton Football Club fought tooth and nail to keep his son Stephen in the Big Smoke but I'd never heard of Stephen's young brother Ben. (See below.)
Retiring hurt, but not bitter - Sydney Morning Herald
REX BEACH and DAVID BROAD. I wonder if Rex was like the mature, serious David Broad at the age of 17. David was one of the High School basketball team that competed bravely against teams composed mainly of grown men. One night I had been rostered to umpire an early game and having played our game,David and I were walking past the town hall when he asked me to attend a meeting with him,the Castlemaine Development Committee. I did but it was another six or so years before I reached David's level of commitment to the community (at Tullamarine.)
Rex was a rather dour shire secretary based at Maldon,probably of the same vintage as Guildford's Max Glen,and a very good captain of the Maldon Cricket Club. I'd never known of his involvement with footy until I googled Rex Beach,Maldon.

Maldon Museum and Archives Association | Caring for the ...
Maldon Museum and Archives holds a wonderful collection of artefacts and historical information from the Maldon District
The Maldon âcollectionâ, comprising old objects and records from the local area, was initially brought together by the Maldon Progress Association in 1966. The collection is now under the custodianship of Maldon Museum & Archives Association Inc., a member-based volunteer-run organisation established in 1992 to bring together the previously separate museum and family history groups.
The collection continues to grow, and our members and volunteers work hard to research, document, preserve and present it in a way which helps visitors to understand the past, reflect on the present and look to the future. Our Association is very grateful for the commitment and huge contribution of time and expertise given by our many volunteers and supporters, and for the financial assistance received for special projects from various funding bodies over the years.
The district settlements covered by the collection include Baringhup, Bradford, Eaglehawk, Gowar, Maldon, Muckleford, Neereman, Nuggetty, Pollard, Ravenswood South, Sandy Creek, Shelbourne, Tarrangower, Walmer, Woodbrook (Chinamanâs Creek), and parts of Eddington and Welshmanâs Reef. Also from 1947 to 1956, the construction settlement for Cairn Curran Reservoir was located at Baringhup.
THE TOWN AND AREA.
MALDON was most likely named after Maldon in Essex,the name having been in existence since Saxon times. The town was declared and named in early 1854.
A new Township is declared at Mount Tarrangower, situate 11 miles N. W. of Castlemaine,to be called Maldon, which will be a place for holding Courts of Petty Sessions.
Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer (Vic. : 1851 - 1856) Monday 13 February 1854 p 4 Article
A sales notice in mid 1854 alerted me to the fact that land in the parish of Maldon was to be offered for sale and in order to find out about land divisions rather than church parishes, I knew I needed to use County in the trove search term. Also aware that Maldon would be well beyond the county of Bourke, I tried PARISH OF MALDON,COUNTY and it worked. There is a township and a parish map. Have a look!

Maldon is a town in Victoria, Australia, in the Shire of Mount Alexander local government area. It has been designated "Australia's first notable town" and is notable for its 19th-century appearance, maintained since gold-rush days. At the 2006 census, Maldon had a population of 1,601.
The district where Maldon now stands was first discovered by white Europeans in 1836, during Major Thomas Mitchell's famous Victorian expedition. It was settled soon afterwards by pastoralists, and two sheep runs were established in the area, at the foot of Mount Tarrangower. In December 1853, gold was discovered at Cairn Curran (the name given to one of the sheep runs), and Maldon became a part of the Victorian Gold Rush.
The goldfield, which was named "Tarrangower Fields" after Mount Tarrangower, immediately attracted an immense number of men eager to make their fortunes at the diggings. Just one month after gold was first discovered, the Chief Commissioner for Goldfields reported 3000 miners had arrived at the diggings. A month after that, a journalist for The Argus reported that the road from Castlemaine to Maldon was lined with the shops of people hoping to make a living of their own from the miners:
The road follows up the course of Long Gully, where the diggings were first opened, for a couple of miles, and is lined on either side by an almost continuous row of stores, refreshment tents, eating houses, doctors' tents, apothecaries' shops, and, in fact, shops of every description.
The same report noted that the goldfield's population had already grown to 18,000, though only about 1000 had taken out mining licences.
Maldon in 1904, seen from the south-west
In 1856 the Victorian government arranged for the settlement to become a town, which was named Maldon. The post office had opened on 14 March 1854.
In 1861, a government census declared the town's population to be 3341, servicing an additional 5,000-6,000 miners at the diggings. At that time it was the eighth-largest town in Victoria, and remained so for the next decade. However, as miners were forced to dig deeper to obtain usable specimens, or as mines ran dry completely, the population began to decline. By 1891, Maldon was reduced to 1,600 inhabitants. Mining of small claims continued through the 20th century, together with sluicing of gullies and tailings. In the 1980s, several new ventures commenced, including an open cut at Union Hill.
Maldon proved to be one of Victoria's richest quartz-mining centres, though with poorer alluvial results than others such as Castlemaine or Ballarat. Quartz mining extended southward through Sandy Creek to Newstead, along to Mia Mia and Muckleford, eastward to Fentimenâs and Smithâs Reefs, and even to the apex of Mount Tarrangower. In all, over seventy reefs were proven to contain gold deposits. Maldon was undoubtedly a poor manâs diggings, with many excellent yields from very small claims.
The Maldon Vintage Machinery Museum houses stationary engines, farming implements, mining exhibits, fire pumps, and objects with links to Thompsons Foundry, Castlemaine.
Historic streetscape at Maldon
Today, Maldon's population is more or less stable at around 1,000 people. The town has changed very little since mining operations ceased, though a former bank at the junction of High and Main Streets has been supplanted by a service station. The town was declared a "notable town" in 1966 by the National Trust of Victoria, who explained that:
The township displays overall historical and architectural importance, particularly in its gold town buildings. The significance lies in the variety of building styles, and the area of mining is of interest with one mine still open to the public. Maldon boasts that it is largely unchanged since the 1850s, and has attracted considerable interest from tourists for its 19th-century atmosphere.
Maldon is now sustained by its appeal as a retreat and retirement venue for artists and writers, as well as tourist trade. The town holds several annual fairs, including a Winter Fair, Easter Fair, Art Show, and Folk Festival. Notable landmarks include Beehive Chimney, Mount Tarrangower and fire tower, Lake Cairn Curran, and the railway station. Maldon has its own newspaper, the Tarrangower Times, which was first published in 1858 and is the oldest continuously published newspaper in Victoria. The Maldon Museum and Archives Association operates a district museum and family-history centre in the former Maldon Shire Hall, and a vintage machinery museum.
The minimum-security female prison HM Prison Tarrengower is located to the near north of the township in the locality of Nuggety.
The memorial park at Maldon
The town has an Australian Rules football team competing in the Maryborough Castlemaine District Football League.
Golfers play at the course of the Maldon Golf Club on Golf Links Road.
The town has an annual Easter Fair which includes events such as billy-cart racing, dancing in the street, the Great Aussie Scone Bake, a cemetery walk and the lighting of the Mount Tarrangower tower. The Maldon Folk Festival has been held annually since 1974. (31 October to 3 November in 2008).
In popular culture
Much of the 2007 film Romulus, My Father, set in the 1950s and starring Eric Bana, was shot on location in Maldon. Romulus, My Father went on to win the Australian Film Institute award for Best Film.

Henry Handel Richardson in Maldon Book Sales
Henry Handel Richardson in Maldon. Henry Handel Richardson in Maldon is an illustrated booklet that details the young Richardson's life in the Victorian gold mining town. She arrived in Maldon as Ethel Richardson in 1880 at the age of 10 with her mother and sister, after the traumatic decline and death of their husband and father, Walter Lindesay Richardson. HHR later wrote that Maldon nourished the imagination of the future writer.
The booklet was winner of the 'Best Walk/Tour' prize in the Victorian Community History Awards 2011, sponsored by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria and the Public Records Office of Victoria.
The authors, Peter Cuffley, Helen McBurney, Janey Runci and Geoff Palmer, assisted by the Maldon community, have produced a well-illustrated and carefully researched booklet that contains three walks; the first, which has a clear map, describes 16 buildings that would have been familiar to the Richardsons; the second, focuses on significant cemetery graves from the 1880's period; and the last, records places fictionalised in Richardson's The Getting of Wisdom.

SOME HISTORIC BUILDINGS.
This amazing article supplies terrific information that I may never have found through trove. The most staggering fact is that the township of Maldon is not built on the township of Maldon site declared in 1854 which explains the absence of the grid layout so typical of declared townships. It also directs readers on a guided walk around the historic town. Some information (such as Maldon's version of Sovereign Hill and the hill climb)may be out of date.
Maldon - Victoria - Australia - Travel - smh.com.au
Extraordinary historic town which looks as though time has stood still.
In 1966 Maldon became the first Victorian town to be classified by the National Trust. This honour reflects an appreciation of its remarkably well-preserved historic streetscape with its European trees, wide verandahs, flagstone paving, old-fashioned shop fronts, quaint cottages with attractive gardens, and its many stone buildings erected in the heyday of the goldmining era.
The town's genuinely historic feel is quite overwhelming, arising out of its architectural harmony, an extensive restoration program that has avoided tackiness and frippery, strict and divisive controls on building alterations, an absence of grandiosity and the tendency of the shops to reinforce the antiquity of their exteriors with interiors that also bespeak a lost time.
For these reasons Maldon has become a very popular tourist destination, particularly during the Easter Fair. Hence, many of the buildings have been converted into specialist stores designed to appeal to the visitor. Some locals scornfully regard the tourist orientation as the 'commodification of heritage'. At any rate, Maldon is located 138 km north-west of Melbourne via A HREF="VICCastlemaine.shtml">Castlemaine, which is 19 km to the south-east, and 359 metres above sea-level.
Prior to the arrival of the first squatters in 1840 the area was occupied by the Wemba-Wemba people and an Aboriginal station operated near Mt Tarrangower from 1841-1849. However, the town really began when John Mechosk, a German prospector who had already struck gold at A HREF="VICDunolly.shtml">Dunolly, A HREF="VICMaryborough.shtml">Maryborough and Kingower, discovered gold at the foot of Mt Tarrangower in 1853, thereby initiating a rush of some 20 000 diggers who initially devoted themselves to alluvial mining. By the end of 1854 the tide had receded to some 2000 prospectors and a township of sorts had developed around a narrow road.
The settlement was initially known as Tarrangower. A townsite was surveyed in 1854 but the location was rejected and ignored by locals. Consequently the de facto township established by the diggers was surveyed in 1856 (which explains the irregular street patterns which evolved organically as routes between the diggings). It was renamed after Maldon in Essex, England.
In 1856 Nuggetty Reef was uncovered to the north of town and companies entered the picture, supplying the capital to unearth the gold-bearing quartz reefs which proved to be among the richest in the country. In the 1860s Maldon rivalled Bendigo for returns but, by 1870, the gold had begun to dwindle. In the subsequent years mines began to close and the population declined. The last operating mine was the North British which closed up shop in 1926, although the Union Mine was reopened in 1987 to reprocess the tailings.
It is this absence of growth after the late 19th century which has facilitated the preservation of the town's historic features.
Noted novelist Henry Handel Richardson (nee Ethel Richardson) spent a portion of her childhood at Maldon.
The Maldon Camp Draft is held in February and the Maldon Easter Fair in April. In late October and early November, a folk festival is held at Butts Reserve (along the road to Mt Tarrangower) and the Mt Tarrangower Hillclimb (a motor sport event) is held in late October. The Spring Festival occurs in August.
Things to see:
The Maldon Visitor Centre is located adjacent the shire offices in High St. It is open weekdays from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m daily. Be sure to pick up the brochures which outline walks of the town, tel: (03) 5475 2569.
Historic Buildings - High St (South)
The information centre has two free pamphlets identifying the town's historic buildings. One covers the main commercial district (Main and High Sts) and the other roams more widely.
Start at the southern end of town where the Castlemaine Rd meets up with High St. Head north along High St. The second house on the left is Lauriston House which was built in 1866 for local mining magnate R.D. Oswald. With its Malmsbury bluestone and elaborate timber verandah fretwork it was regarded as the town's finest building at the time of its construction.
At High and Fountain is the Kangaroo Hotel (1866) which, with its timber lattice and iron lacework, was once a staging post for Cobb & Co coaches. Head south along High St passing, on the right-hand side of the road, the former Commercial Hotel (1867), Argyle House (1866), the former Carriers Arms Hotel (1857), the former Bank of NSW (1858), the enormous Robert Cox Motors (built c.1858 as a four-shop complex), the motorcyclists' (formerly the Freemasons' Hall built c.1863 with a 1908 facade) and a former flour mill (1873).
Cross the road and return northwards to the former Royal Hotel which was built as a concert hall in 1857 and extended in 1862 when it became the hotel. In 1975 it was used as a setting in the film 'Break of Day'. All that was required was to cover the streets in dirt and Maldon furnished a plausible 19th-century setting. It is now a restaurant.
Historic Buildings - Main St
The Grand Hotel (1888) marks the start of Main St. It features some elaborate arches, pilasters and balusters. To the right, as you head north-east, are the former McFarlane's Drapery, built c.1867 (the face of McFarlane's brother, the Secretary to the Treasury, once graced the Australian pound note), Cookies Collections (built c.1870 as a hairdressing salon), Goldsmith's Building (1897), Berryman's Bootshop (1895) on the site of an 1857 bowling alley, the former Albion Hotel (1866), Dabb's Produce Store (c.1870), a former butcher's (c.1858), Swann's Buildings (1866) and the grand two-storey facade of the Maldon Hotel (1909) with its delicate verandah lacework and slender cast-iron posts. The hotel extension was originally the stables. Cornflowers was built c.1860 and was later used as the Bank of Victoria. Wearne's Building (c.1895) is currently a residence (note the old kerosene sign on the wall) and Franklin's Building (c.1870), at Main and Phoenix, started as a shoe warehouse.
Diagonally opposite, at Main and Templeton, is a fruit shop which dates from 1866 (note the fence and the sign). Just along Templeton St is Maldon Old Grain Store Antique Market (1864).
Return to Main St and head south, passing, on the right, the quaint old bakery (c.1895) with an 1854 wood-fired Scotch oven, Calder's (1866), originally an ironmongery, Maldon Pharmacy (c.1860), Wade's Building (c.1880), the former Dabb & Co. Store with its ornate door (built in 1859 and now the Maldon Supermarket), and the service station, which is housed in an old ironmongery and a former smithy (both 1858).
Historic Buildings - High St (Middle)
Turn the corner, heading north back along High St. On the right-hand side are Wade's House (c.1865), now a residence, and, at the Francis St corner, Calder House (c.1885), a distinguished residence which is now a restaurant and bed-and-breakfast.
On the other side of High St is the old post office (1870) which, from 1880-86, was the childhood home of noted Australian novelist Henry Handel Richardson. Her mother was the postmistress. Richardson's autobiography Myself When Young (1950) recounts her time in Maldon with great affection.
Walk along Francis St. To the left are the croquet club (1890) and the museum.
Museum and Courthouse
The Maldon Historical Museum, at the corner of High St and Fountain St, has mining photographs and equipment, domestic memorabilia, and archives. It is located in a mellow-toned brick building erected in 1858 as a Market Place. However, this venture was unsuccessful and it became the shire offices in 1865. The hammerbeam arches were added to correct the buckling walls in 1871. It is open weekdays from 1.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. and from 1.30 p.m. to 5.00 p.m on public holidays and weekends.
Behind the museum is the old fire station (1870) and on the other side of the adjacent football oval is the former courthouse (1861).
Historical Buildings - High St (North)
Return to the post office and head north-west along High St. To the left is Robinson's House, a Gothic Revival structure dating from 1866. Over the road, at 50 High St, is the unusual brickwork of Thomas Vivian's House (1862). It sits in the shadow of Holy Trinity Anglican Church (1862-89), a Gothic Revival ragstone structure with exceptional stained-glass windows and an intricately trussed roof. At 54 High St is Tressider's Cottage, a miner's cottage dating back to 1859 which is now a bed-and-breakfast. A little further along is Dr Lisle's House (1857) and over the road is the primary school (1874).
At Hospital and High is Dr Hardy's House (1857) and adjacent is School Cottage (1860) originally a school. Further along High St and on the other side of the road is the arched entranceway of one of the town's grander homes, 'Glendonald', built in 1870 as 'Ethandune'. Continue north past a range of late 19th-century residences to the Adair St corner where there is an Italianate villa with impressive plasterwork.
Historical Buildings - Adair St
At Adair and Chapel is the hospital, built as a one-storey Classical Revival structure in 1860. Patients were allegedly given subterranean water from Eaglehawk Mine as it was believed to have medicinal properties. Just along Chapel St is St Brigid's Catholic Church (1891).
Return to the High and Adair St intersection. On the north-eastern corner is Rule's House (1897). The brick-and-timber house adjacent dates from 1875. At the south-western corner of Adair and Templeton is a corner store and residence (1880s).
Historical Buildings - Templeton St
Heading south on Templeton, to the right, are Brook's residence (1890) with its fine iron lacework, and a typical timber house from the 1880s. Over the road is Chapman's House which was started at some point prior to 1863. The large house on its southern side dates from 1870.
At the south-eastern corner of Templeton and Camp Sts is the former Holy Trinity Parsonage (1863). The original church was to the rear. Just to the south is Lovell's Cottage, a timber house dating from 1860.
Historical Buildings - Church St
Walk along Camp St to the Church St corner where you will find one of the town's highlights - the former Anglican Penny School where the children once paid a penny a day for their schooling. It was largely rebuilt in 1862 after a storm destroyed part of the original 1856 structure, although the tower and entrance porches remain from that earlier day. The architecture is unusual and eclectic. Over the road is the Welsh Congregational Church (1863 with a transept added in 1901).
Walk south along Church St past the Presbyterian manse (1859) to the Presbyterian Church (1905) at the Edward St corner.
Historical Buildings Concluded
At the north-eastern corner of Edwards and Templeton is the Baptist Church (1896). On the south-eastern corner is Brook's Store (1864).
Across Templeton St, at the Francis St corner, is the former Welsh Baptist Church (1865). On its western side is the former temperance hall (1873) and behind that is one of the town's oldest surviving structures, the former Edwards crushing plant.
Maldon Historic Reserve
The Maldon Historic Reserve constitutes about 2500 ha of public land and forest around Maldon. It was created to preserve the area's goldmining relics, including old shafts, abandoned equipment, mullock and tailing heaps, tunnels, dams, tracks, kilns, cyanide vats, stone walls and the goldmining dredge beside the road to Bendigo, 3 km from the town centre. Some are outlined below.
The box and ironbark forests are regrowth projects as the original woodlands were destroyed by goldmining and farming activities. Bushwalking, forest drives, wildflowers and fossicking can all be enjoyed at Smith's Reef which is signposted to the left off the Castlemaine Rd about 4 km from town.
The 30-metre Beehive Chimney (1862) is located just off the road, near the intersection of Main St and Church St. The Beehive reef was discovered by Cornish miners who named it after a swarm of bees which were, at that moment, settled on a nearby post. There is a picnic area adjacent.
North British Mine
Turn off High St into Parkins Reef Rd which heads south-west. 2 km from town, to the left, is the site where the North British Mine operated until 1926. A walking track leads past numerous ruins including two large stamper batteries and some kilns. There is much to see but some remnants may go unnoticed or unappreciated by the untrained eye so be sure to obtain a guiding pamphlet from the information centre. The forest just to the south contains some old puddling machines and mining holes from the gold days.
Just past the North British, to the right, is the access point to Carman's Tunnel, a 570-metre goldmining tunnel which was excavated, largely with pneumatic drills, between 1882 and 1884. Despite the extraordinary effort, returns were minimal. For a small fee you can go on an informative, candle-lit, half-hour walk through the dry, clean, spacious, level and easily accessible tunnel from 1.30 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. on weekends, public and school holidays, tel: (03) 5475 2667.
The town's handsome railway station in Hornsby St was built in 1884 . Two steam trains serve as a static display while another two operational steam trains are used for 45-minute return trips into the Muckleford Forest (a diesel locomotive is used on days of total fire ban). Trips are made on Sundays and public holidays at 11.30 a..m, 1.00 p.m. and 2.30 p.m. and on Wednesdays and Saturdays in school holidays (same departure times). Trains also run every day from December 27 to mid-Januray and from Good Friday to Easter Monday. Ring (03) 5475 2966 for recorded information concerning train times, or call the general office on (03) 54751451.
Nuggetty Ranges Winery
4 km north-west of Maldon, on the Maldon-Sherbourne Road (also known as Bradford Road), is Nuggetty Ranges Winery. Established in 1994, it is a small family-owned winery which produces cabernet sauvignon, semillon and an award-winning shiraz. The cellar door is open daily from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m., tel: (03) 5475 1347.
Next to the Nuggetty Ranges Winery, in the Maldon-Sherbourne Road, is the Maldon Yabby and Fish Farm which offers a personalised farm tour, yabbie catching, barbecue and picnic facilities and sales. It is only open to the public in the Christmas school holidays, tel: (03) 5475 1086.
One of the best vantage points in town is from atop Anzac Hill which furnishes views of the Grampians, Mount Franklin and Mount Macedon in the distance. You can walk or drive to the summit along Fountain St although it is unsealed, difficult and much further (2.4 km up a steep hill) than most guides will admit. At the top there is a picnic area and a walking track which heads west along a 4WD track to the summit of Mt Tarrangower. If you're looking for an easier option there is an excellent view of the town from the Turkish cannon which is less than a third of the way up the hill.
Mt Tarrangower and Butts Reserve
Mount Tarrangower (570m) is located 2 km west of town via Franklin St. This was the centre of the gold diggings in the 1850s and it was here that the richest quartz reefs were located. Today there is a very good lookout tower (which is illuminated at Eastertime), fine picnic areas and walking tracks to Anzac Hill and Fountain St.
Just off Franklin St, at the base of the hill, is Butts Reserve where there are picnic and barbecue facilities and where a folk festival is held each year in early November. In late October it is also the starting point for a motor race to the top of the hill.
Cairn Curran Reservoir, 12 km south-west via Newstead Rd, is a large and scenic lake which offers good opportunities for water sports, swimming, picnicking and relaxing. There is a sailing club near the spillway.
Porcupine Township is an award-winning recreation of an early 1850s gold town located in rugged bushland on the site of the original Porcupine diggings where the first gold discovery between Castlemaine and Bendigo was made. The buildings associated with the original settlement have entirely disappeared but slab, shingle and mud-brick buildings have been relocated from other goldfields and derelict townsites. These include a two-storey barn, an hotel, an undertaker's, miner's huts, a blacksmith's, a general store, a carriage repository, a doctor's surgery and a bowling alley.
You can go for a ride in a Gold Escort, pan for gold, feed the emus or take a trip on the Little Toot train which does a circuit through the original diggings. There are actors in period costume, a resident artisan working in pioneer style, a licensed restaurant, a motel and self-contained cottages. The 'village' is located 2.5 km from the post office at the corner of the Maldon-Bendigo Rd and Allans Rd, tel: (03) 5475 1000.
Maldon's pioneer cemetery (1857) contains the graves of over 200 Chinese goldminers from the early days of the town. There is a Chinese oven where incense was burned for ceremonial purposes, Chinese headstones, a caretaker's cottage (1866) and a rotunda (1900). Jonquils grow in profusion in springtime. To get there follow the Maryborough Rd for 3.8 km then turn right at the women's prison.

In 1967, I ran from Landseer St, Castlemaine to Maldon to attend the Easter Show while my future wife's family drove and discovered on a very hot day that the shade provided by roadside trees was not as great as I had imagined. At the Show a little girl's eye was pecked out by a magpie.
Before teaching at Maldon in 1967, I had taught at Franklinford,Phillip Whitlock being one of my pupils. His dad moved the family from Mt Franklin to Maldon during that time and I taught Phillip again at Maldon.
Steven Burchell was a great kid and I believe he became a talented stilt walker. The Burchell family had been in the area for a considerable time,apparently coming from near Talbot by 1900.
Private W. Burchell who has been home on final leave prior to going to the front, was entertained by the residents of Baringhup, and Tarrangower and presented with a pocket wallet and wristlet watch, for which
he suitably returned thanks. (Mount. Alexander Mail (Vic. : 1914 - 1917) Monday 1 November 1915 p 4 Article)
Steven's father seems to have been Reg and his mother Joyce,a Castlemaine girl.

A MINI CHRONOLOGY.
Many references are to mines, gold escorts etc.which will not be included here. My emphasis here is on early residents (whose family folklore makes vague reference to "the diggings"*) and noteworthy events.
*As the surnames list has limited capacity,priority will be given to surnames of those pioneers whose descendants are unlikely to know of a connection with Maldon. Those descendants who know of a connection are likely to read the journal anyway.
GENERAL POST OFFICE -The following notice was issued at the Post office yesterday -Maldon (Tarrengower) -On and after the 6th inst., and till further notice a weekly mail for Maldon will be closed at this office every Thursday at 5 :30 p.m. , and the return mail will arrive every Saturday, at 12 noon -Fryers Creek etc.
N.B. Any reference to Maldon before 1854 will be to Maldon in Essex, Maldon's Punt (apparently on the Murray near Albury, hence Tarrengower in brackets in the notice to prevent confusion) or the Maldon Plate in horse racing. Fryers Creek was sometimes rendered as Friars Creek in early days by those not aware of Mr Fryer.
DEPUTY REGISTRARS. - The Government Gazette announces the appointment of the following gentlemen to the office of Deputy-Registrar:-Mr George L. Hutchinson, at Hepburn; .....Henry Nathaniel L. S. Kentish, at Maldon ; etc.
(Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer (Vic. : 1851 - 1856) Saturday 22 April 1854 p 4 Article)
If Mr Thomas Waters, of Harton, Bedfordshire, will forward the whereabouts of William Howard Birt, (whom he promises to take care of), to Mr. John Howard, Maldon Post Office, Tarrengower Diggings,he will oblige.
There must have been some desperation because the advertisement was inserted numerous times in different forms. This must have been another of Mrs John Howard's brothers.
PETER HOWARD BIRT, who came out on the ship Calabar, Captain Moodie, will oblige his sister by writing to her, at Maldon Post Office, Tarrengower. (P.2, Argus,29-5-1854.)
DIED. On the 13th instant, at Maldon, Tarrengower diggings, from the accidental discharge of a fowling-piece,
Mr. Humphrey Jones Evans, late of Llambdr, North Wales.(P.4, Argus, 19-6-1854.)
INSOLVENTS.William Henry Ritchie, storekeeper, of Maldon, near Castlemaine. The causes of insolvency are stated as depreciation in value of goods and pressure of creditors. Amount of debts, Â£2099/6/1 ; assets Â£932/9/8.
Two peninsula pioneers held the office of postmaster at Melbourne,Ben Baxter before he established Carrup Carrup (at Baxter) and Alexander McCrae after an unsuccessful short tenure on the Arthurs Seat Run. It was the latter who received a letter signed by numerous residents of Maryborough griping about their poor service. The present Maryborough residents could hardly complain about their absolutely beautiful railway station.
......4. That the inhabitants of Maldon and of Avoca (at neither of which places does the population, during the summer season, approximate within about one-fifth of that of Maryborough)enjoy the advantage of postal communication with Melbourne and Castlemaine twice a week.etc. (P.5.Argus, 21-12-1854.)
I only played at Maldon once, with my wife's uncle Roy Portwine of Castlemaine. Roy hit a beautiful drive right down the middle of a fairway and despite a lengthy search, we never found the ball. Maldon,like Castlemaine,had its fair share of magpies* and its likely that one rescued its "baby" or the ball went down a burrow.
*At Castlemaine's course some very clever maggies had set up home in some gums overlooking about three fairways and would swoop you just as you commenced your downswing. And they knew when you were foxing! When running around Maldon's footy ground I did plenty of backwards running although I was playing footy,not umpiring, at the time. It was essential to keep an eye on the maggies nesting in the south west forward pocket. The little girl who had her eye pecked at the Easter Show at the ground was indelibly etched into my memory.

Legend: Maldon is also the birthplace of Walter Travis, "the most successful amateur golfer in the U.S. during the early 1900s, a noted golf journalist and publisher, an innovator in all aspects of golf, a teacher, and a respected golf course architect." - See Wikipedia - Walter Travis.
