DID FERDINAND LUBECKE (oops!), EARLY VIGNERON OF VINEYARD RD., SUNBURY, DIE AT GREENVALE IN 1902? (VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA.)
THE SHORT ANSWER IS NO. The vigneron at Sunbury was not Ferdinand Lubecke at all; he was FELIX FREDERICK BUBECK. Too many late nights researching and writing my DICTIONARY HISTORY OF TULLAMARINE AND MILES AROUND from late 1989 had played a terrible trick on my mind and the mistake had become etched into my memory. The vineyard had operated much later than I expected. F.F.Bubeck, yes Bubeck, was a Melton Shire councillor and this is his death record.I knew that I.W.Symonds had given the German name of his vineyard but I couldn't remember it. I leave the original journal, below the dotted line, and the title, unaltered as a warning to check your notes instead of relying on memory so you don't make the same sort of mistake that I did.

(P.1, Sunbury News, 4-7-1903.) A few identical advertisements appeared till 1916.
I.W.Symonds had much detail in his BULLA BULLA, a history of the shire of Bulla, about Ferdinand and other vignerons who gave Vinegar (sic, VINEYARD) Road its name. Unfortunately, when I wrote my DICTIONARY HISTORY OF TULLAMARINE AND MILES AROUND, I had forgotten this and the LUBECKE entry included only information from GREENVALE: LINKS WITH THE PAST about Ferdinand and his wife, Susan, living in a tiny house in Section Rd., Greenvale and the years of their deaths.
I couldn't find Ferdinand's death record until, remembering the spelling of Susan's surname in her death notice, and other variations (one being Lubcke), I played a hunch.

Unfortunately, I had to discard my local history notes when I moved to Rosebud and I have no idea when Ferdinand settled at Vinegar Rd and how long he stayed there but there is no death record for Ferdinand Lubecke and only the one above for Ferdinand Lubcke.
This post was prompted by the chance discovery of Susan's death notice last night.
LUBEKE. –On the 5th November, 1924, at her daughter's residence, 93 Graham street, Albert Park, Susan, widow of the late Ferdinand Lubeke (late of Greenvale) and loving mother of Percy(Morwell), Cecilia (Mrs. Gilham, Albert Park), Julius (Queensland), Otto (Balwyn), and Lititia(Essendon); aged 78 years. A patient sufferer at rest. (P.1, Argus, 6-11-1924.)
Unfortunately Cecilia's death record is fairly vague about her place of birth but her maiden name has the spelling used by I.W. Symonds. Her birth record cannot be found but, in her marriage record, her maiden name is given as in her death notice

Good luck to anyone writing the family history. I hope this helps a bit.
I've had two goes at scanning through the below (very long) journal to find the reference to Ferdinand Lubecke of Vinegar (SIC) Rd last night without success but it's got to be there. It is almost certainly a reference to a clearing sale, his property having been sold. The disease that wiped out many vineyards in Victoria and all the ones near Sunbury, had probably forced the sale of the property.

POSTSCRIPT. Having realised my mistake about the name of the VINEYARD Rd vigneron, I was able to find his entry on page B.158 of DHOTAMA in seconds.
BUBECK, Frederick (Sunbury).
Page numbers refer to BULLA BULLA by I.W.Symonds. Bubeck is also mentioned in SALTWATER RIVER TRAILS by Hugh Anderson.
P.100. The Royal Hotel in Sunbury was built by F.F.Bubeck, the vigneron from The Gap.
P.128. Between Bald Hill and the Calder Highway was the Schlossberg Vineyard of Felix Frederick Bubeck who was sent out from Rotenburg, near Stottgart,by his father at the age of 19 to select land suitable for wine growing. He chose 60 acres on Bald Hill in 1866.He was a Melton Shire Councillor for 38 years and died two years after the last vines were rooted out in 1916.
Wills was not originally Robert O'Hara Burke's deputy as explained in countless accounts of the expedition but his name is the one most often associated with Burke in references to the tragic endeavour.
Progress was going to be slow because of all the provisions that had to be carried but when, after numerous speeches, they finally left the spot marked by a cairn in Royal Park near the present Melbourne zoo (Melway map 2B, A2), they only made it about as far as Queens Park at Moonee Ponds.
On pages 9-10 of Andrew Lemon's THE STOPOVER THAT STAYED (A history of Essendon)is the following detail of the first camp. "...the ill-fated Burke and Wills overland expedition spent its first night at Moonee Ponds. Some early residents say the camp was somewhere between where St. Monica's Roman Catholic Presbytery stands and Queen's Park Lake, but a stone monument set in Mt. Alexander Road plantation opposite the park claims that is the spot. The 27 imported camels were tied at the water hole (Queen's Park lake) and the horses, terrified of the camels, were tethered at the corner of Napier Street and Fletcher Street."
In I.W.Symonds' BULLA BULLA, it is stated that the second night's encampment was near the Inverness Hotel (at Melway 177 J11.) Burke showed great will power in passing David William O'Nial's Lady of the Lake Hotel at 5 H12 without wetting his whistle and the publican's two daughters watched in awe through the Cape Broom hedge as the lengthy processION passed by. (As they told the late Colin Williams over half a century later when he was living on "Broombank".)
The reason for this post was the following, found in my Dictionary History of Bulla journal while I was looking for a reference to Ferdinand Lubecke, early vigneron of Vinegar Rd, Sunbury discussed in Symonds' BULLA BULLA, who may have been the man of that name who died at Greenvale in 1902. I have previously seen no reference to the third camp. The Constitution Hotel* was at Melway 383 A9.
William Fanning, his name wrongly recorded as W.Fannan on my paper copy of the parish map, was granted crown allotment 19B, Bulla Bulla (Sunnyside) on 29-1-1852. This was south of the Bulla-Diggers Rest road where it adjoins Loemans Rd on Tullamarine Island. See more on Kathleen Fanning's website:
SUNBURY. The death has occurred of Mrs. Michael Fanning, Powlett street, in the house in which her father and mother (Mr. and Mrs.J. Hogan) had lived and died before her. Mrs.Fanning had resided here for 63 years, having
come to Sunbury when 11 years of age. She was born in Flinders street, Melbourne, in 1842. She saw Burke and Wills, the famous explorers, when they camped near Bell's Constitution Hotel, on the Bulla road, and she used to relate how she saw Burke mounted in imposing style on his white charger. She also saw King, the only survivor of the Burke and Wills expedition, passing through Sunbury by rail on his return journey. (P.4, Argus, 6-2-1917.)

WHICH ANONYMOUS TULLAMARINE CHARITY WORKERS HELD THE DINNER DANCE TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE KEW COTTAGES IN 1956?
A society page praised the organisation of the event and the fact that these people didn't seek publicity of their good work. I thought it might be the Thomas family of Carinya on the south side of Sharps Rd, who, with Walter V. (Major) Murphy, were at the forefront of community spirit, holding picture nights in their barn to raise money for facilities and allowing the pony club the use of their property for decades. Tullamarine's kindergarten may have been obtained much later without their supply of donated baling twine which enable bundling of paper collected in the paper drives that I organised (and of course the use of Noel Grist's truck to convey the paper to buyers.)
Alec Rasmussen, Major Murphy and Leo Dineen's civic contributions have been well documented in my journals so I just had to find out the identity of these charity workers so they could be recognised for their efforts too. Another article mentioned an eye-catching invitation to the wool shed dinner dance that had been sent from the Glendemar sheep station at Tullamarine. I knew there was no such property so I did a trove search for GLENDEWAR, TULLAMARINE, REFINED TO FAMILY NOTICES. I didn't bother to specify a decade because there were only about 30 results. Of course there were the death notices for William Dewar and his wife Mary in the first decade of the 1900's and the Johnsons who replaced them before their deaths, and occupied Glendewar for about four decades.
They were succeeded by the Chambers family and it was most likely this family that was doing such sterling work in 1956. There has been much discussion in a Tullamarine Primary School Facebook group, of pupils who attended the old Tullamarine State School 2613 (Melway 5 F9, top left corner)and one of these was named Bumstead. Most of those listing the names would have attended the school in the 1950's. Paul Ellis was Greek according to the late Olive Nash and Harry Heaps, and owned the wedge-shaped block (as shown on the Airport Acquisitions map) which had a small frontage to Bulla Rd and a long frontage to the Moonee Pond Creek, between Victoria St/ Nash's Lane (Later Greenhill St and now closed) and Glendewar.

THE "BACK TO RED HILL" WILL BE HELD
AT THE RED HILL CRICKET CLUB PAVILION AT THE RED HILL RECREATION RESERVE (MELWAY 190 J3)
ON SUNDAY 22 OCTOBER,2017
FROM 1:30 TO 4:30 P.M.
A reunion was held in March 2015 with about 90 people attending despite clashing with a Hilli family reunion, which I didn't find out about until it was too late to change the date, and a Rosebud High School anniversary, as well as many people finding out about the event after it had taken place. This will be the last BACK TO I will be organising because it has occupied time needed to complete my chronology of burials at Dromana. If this reunion is enjoyed as much as the previous one, some people might form a committee to organise the next one.
Don't miss this opportunity to meet your old friends while you still can.
Since the last reunion three family histories have been written, two of them by Barry Wright and Helen Blakeley who contacted me through family tree circles. They add significantly to the information in Sheila Skidmore's THE RED HILL and PENINSULA PIONEERS, written by Stephen Lynch, our fellow member, toolaroo.
Marie Hansen Fels would have loved to include this in her I SUCCEEDED ONCE (about William Thomas and our first pioneers.)

WILLIAM LINKSTONE AND CHRISTINA (nee McMurray) ADAMS, BOTH BORN IN SCOTLAND, WERE BURIED AT DROMANA, VIC., AUST. IN 1967 AND 1974.
Because my chronology of burials at Dromana wouldn't save under the original title, I've renamed the word document PIONEER GRAVES AT DROMANA. I'm now going through the ozgen list and have discovered some ADAMS burials not connected with Adams Corner; they are listed as "ADAMS (Other)" in the surnames index. I don't intend to write a biography for every burial on the ozgen list but if they have the same surname as any of our pioneers, I will look for their death records to see if there is a relationship to our pioneers. This couple probably married before leaving Scotland.

MEHRAN SERAPH PEZEKIAN, PIONEERING ARMENIAN IMMIGRANT AND PIONEER OF RED HILL, NEAR DROMANA, VIC., AUST.
PEZEKIAN, RED HILL SOUTH.
William Hopcraft's grants near the north end of Tucks Rd were crown allotments 70A and 70B, parish of Balnarring. As my rate transcriptions in 2010 were only for properties in the parishes of Kangerong and Wannaeue, when I read MEMOIRS OF A LARRIKIN, I did a special search and discovered that Hec Hanson's paternal grandfather, Hans Christian Hanson had first occupied 70B in 1887. This land fronted Tucks Rd and Stony Creek with its northern boundary just north of the junction of Musk Creek and Stony Creek to roughly 57 Tucks Rd.
North of c/a 70B, with with its north west corner indicated by the PRESENT north end of Tucks Rd (164 metres north of the original corner) was crown allotment 70A which also extended east to Stony Creek. Its northern boundary is indicated by the dotted blue line in Melway 190 E-H 8.
In 1894-5, John Hopcraft was occupying 70A. John was still there in 1902 when AROUND RED HILL was published. It was obviously a well-kept property.
A splendid flower garden surrounds Mr Hopcraft's house. He has a nice little orchard and a vegetable garden; also a number of walnut trees. These yield splendidly, and Mr Hopcraft finds no difficulty in disposing of the nuts.
When I started researching Red Hill, I transcribed some 1919 assessments in the parish of Balnarring. James Rattray of Red Hill had been listed as the occupier of c/a 70A but his name had been crossed out and replaced with "Pezekian, Carlton". This man had obviously occupied the property in mid 1919.
Crown allotment 70A can be seen on the left hand side of the bottom portion of the Balnarring parish map.
As there are no later rate records available on microfiche, I wondered how long he'd stayed there and if I could find out more about this New Aussie.
(Richard Broome told those attending the Dromana Historical Society 30th recently that historical societies should place more emphasis on non Anglo-Irish migrants to become more relevant to a large proportion of the population.)
COLLAPSED WHEEL CAUSES ACCIDENT.
When Mr. Mehran Pezekian, of Red Hill, was returning from Victoria Market in a motor truck on Tuesday morning a front wheel of the truck collapsed as he was passing the Elks Cafe, at Seaford. The mishap caused the truck to collide with a stationary motor car, owned by Dr. V. B. Brenton, of Station street, Port Melbourne, in which Mrs. Brenton was seated. After its impact with the car the truck swerved into the large window in the front of the cafe. The large window frame was wrenched from its foundation, but only two panes of glass were broken. Mrs Brenton suffered from shock.(P.1, Frankston and Somerville Standard, 24-2-1934.)
Mehran had stuck at it despite some bad luck with a fire in 1927* and mongrel cabbage seeds in 1928**.
*Two fires broke out in the Red Hill district. The first outbreak was near the Flinders-road. The homesteads of Messrs. Hansen,(Hanson), Pezekian. Lesslng, and Jarman were endangered.(P. 9, The Age, 15-2-1927.)
Alf Hanson had sold the original "Alpine Chalet" and the southern 69 acres of 70B to the Lessings just after the 1919-20 assessment. While Littlelejohn the builder was erecting a new Alpine Chalet on the northern 20 acres of 70B, the Hansons lived on the Blakeley property, "Ecclesall", now partly occupied by the Consolidated School. (P.10, MEMOIRS OF A LARRIKIN.) The Jarmans were on "Devonia" near Stony Creek Rd.
Mehran had operated a fruit shop in Johnston St Abbotsford at about the time he moved onto 70A, probably with a swollen head.
More bad luck struck Mehran (known as Jack) in 1935 when his wife Mabel Irene, nee Burgin, died. She was buried at Coburg. (P.1, The Age, 26-11-1935.)
Probably due to the aforementioned fire and crook cabbage seed of 1927 and 1928, Mehran (written as Miran) was in financial difficulty and faced having his farm sold by the sheriff because of unpaid taxes or rates. It consisted of only 63 acres of 70A so Neilson, mentioned regarding the fire, might have owned the other roughly 16 acres. http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/3945521
Mehran's desire to sell his farm in 1933 was possibly prompted by Mabel Irene's failing health but the odds of a successful sale during the depression would not have been great.

A number of other Armenians arrived after the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78 and the Turkish massacres of 1894-97. In 1897 a Turkish Armenian from the province .of Sivas, Haroutian Balakian, arrived in Melbourne, via Constantinople and London, where he established himself as an importer. Other Armenians from Sivas followed him to Melbourne after World War I.
In 1900, Mehran Pezekian, an Armenian from Kayseri, Turkey, migrated to Australia via Egypt. After living for a time in Melbourne and Tasmania he eventually settled on a farm at Red Hill, Victoria.

THREE UNRELATED GIBSON FAMILIES NEAR DROMANA.
1. Walter Gibson and Margaret (Purdie) of "Glenholm".
2.James W. Gibson, dairyman, North Melbourne/ Brunswick; and possibly L.M.Gibson, Coburg who had land on the east side of Purves Rd, James being the grantee of c/a 24, section B, Wannaeue. (1910, 1919 rates.)
3.W.Gibson, grantee of c/a 78A, Balnarring on 22-7-1874. Ethel Bailey's mother who became Mrs Staples was a descendant of this family.
This would possibly be the grantee.
GIBSON -On the 23rd December at St. Margaret's private hospital, Hampton, William Nicholas Gibson, late of Red Hills, Dromana and Montrose, in his 81st year. (Private interment )
P.1, Argus, 27-12-1919.)
Extract from my PIONEER PATHWAY, DROMANA journal, written in 2012, when I was trying to find links between the various Gibson families.
GIBSON William and John Thomas (Red Hill) 1871
As I have only transcribed parish of Balnarring rates in 1919, I can only presume that a grantee in that parish was William Gibson. W.Gibson was granted crown allotment 78A of 190 acres 1 rood and 14 perches on 22-7-1874. It had a 1116 metre frontage to the east side of Red Hill Rd and a 1018 metre frontage to the north side of Stanleys Rd (Melway 191 G-H 3-4 roughly.) Across Red Hill Rd was John Huntley's Hillside where William Joseph McIlroy worked from about 27-9-1877 until 19-10-1890. His diary entry for 16-6-1890 said that Mrs Gibson had died so it can be assumed that she was the grantee's wife. (Extracts from W.J.McIlroy's diary in Sheila Skidmore's THE RED HILL.)
ALBERT LUDLOW NASE, A COURSING LEGEND. A large proportion of the time spent on my chronology of burials involves finding whether people who died at Dromana were actually buried there, especially when the death notice was in The Age because funeral notices were practically never on the same page and the page on which family notices were continued was rarely indicated. This bloke was actually buried at Flinders.

Kim Barker. Nase is the name for the people that had a property in Flinders not far from the ST JOHN'S CHURCH . is this the same family ?
ME. It would appear so. Their place was called "Wilga" and Mabs (Mabel?) married Frederick Wallace Jarman of "Devonia" near Stony Creek Rd (Melway 190 parts 6,7 E-F.). Andrew's first name may have started with N with Andrew being his most used given name but Mabel's death record gives his first name as Albert, as do Albert's death and birth records.

The only one of these properties that can be identified with any certainty is the Triangle paddock of 65 acres 1 rood 4 perches bounded by Punchbowl, Razorback and Boneo Rds at Melway 261 B10.
Albert was a Creswick Shire councillor as was C.Fawcett. Albert was shire president on at least one occasion.
With Albert's Wilga estate being on various crown allotments, no residence being on the four detailed above, and so close to Flinders Township, it is almost certain that his residence was in the Flinders Township itself. Thanks to Kim Barker of the HISTORY OF FLINDERS-CRIB POINT group for pointing out that "Wilga" was 28 King St, Flinders.
