Burck Whiting - mountain expressman

att WHITING researchers
I found this article in Australia, picked up from the 'Marysville Appeal', printed in the
Sydney Morning Herald dated, Thursday, 3 May 1860.
DOG EXPRESS TRAINS.—The California Expressmen beat
the world in display of enterprise and perseverence.
Burck Whiting, who runs an express between Marysville
and the American valley, employs dogs in transmitting letters,
packages, and passengers over the snow, between the Mountain House
and the American Valley.
He works five of the sagacious beasts, and has them harnessed to
a sled, upon, which which, besides himself as driver, he
frequently takes a load of seven or eight hundred pounds. Last winter,
his dogs hauled through a lady passenger, from the Mountain House to
Meadow Valley. One of the dogs, "Mark," has been in the
express business for some four winters. Whiting says he would have no
hesitation in sending this dog through alone. Mark always has the post of honour,
and "works in the lead." This not only instanced the daring and energy of our
Mountain Expressmen, but is another proof of the value and sagacity of
"man's best friend in the brute creation," — Marysville Appeal.

I just found a watercolor by William Dargie the title is " Study No.1 for Changeable Weather. Dromana. the date 1986. In excellent condition.
What I would really like to know, apart from 'AM I RICH?', is, what was the attachment to Dromana, Victoria? if any.

Edward Shelton Stamp

Edward Shelton Stamp was the son of Dr. John Sundius STAMP 1799-1849 and Ann HAYWOOD formerly Davis or Davies 1807-1834
Edward Shelton STAMP was born 18 September 1831 • Oxford, Oxfordshire, England
He arrived by the emigrant ship, TASMAN to Port Phillip, on the 28 October 1849 • Geelong, Victoria, Australia
He married Emma RIDDLE at Christ's Church, Geelong Victoria on 2 May 1854.

Stamp, living at Customs House Geelong,since 1856, was Warehouse keeper, Customs, Geelong.
He became insolvent 24 June 1861 Then in August 1861, he was transferred to position of landing waiter in the Customs department, Melbourne.

I need a DATE and PLACE of DEATH
some time between 1863 and January 1884.
and possibly SUSSEX
from 1863 to 1884
Family rumour says he left Melbourne in 1863 changed his name and was a banker in India (nothing in my family is too far fetched). HE OWED A LOT OF MONEY unbelievable how many people were suing him.
Anyway he obviously left because he was the late Edward Shelton Stamp, of Sussex in 1884.

The Age (Melbourne, Vic) Tue 1 Dec 1863
PRAHRAN.— (Before Messrs Templeton, Mason and Pilley.) —
A woman named Emma Shelton Stamp applied for an order of the court, under the New Matrimonial and Divorce Act, to protect her property from being interfered with by her husband, whom she stated had left her six months ago.
She had been married for ten years, and it appeared that since her husband left, she had acquired a small amount of property, which she did not wish him to have any benefit from. The case was postponed until Thursday

In Sydney, in 1872, Emma married, Alfred Sanford Hutchison McKEE (1837–1883) So she was either a widow or divorced. The next I find is-

Australia Day , Sydney's Foundation Day

Australia Day was once known as First Landing Day or Foundation Day and it wasn't until 1935 that all Australian states and territories adopted use of the term "Australia Day"

There used to be a saying that on Foundation Day half the shops were closed and on Separation Day the other half were closed but on St. Patrick's Day they were all closed.
Now what does that say about us? and I do recall the day after St. Patrick's Day is a little slow.

The earliest Foundation Day, on the 26th. January, 1788, was of course commemorating the birth of Sydney with the landing of the 11 ships, of the First Fleet carrying 750 convicts and 750 Royal Navy, merchant seamen and Provisions .
Celebrations with lots of eating and drinking amongst the emancipists was customary on this anniversary day.
Captain Matthew Flinders recommended that the continent be called Australia after he circumnavigated it in 1817.
In 1837 the Sydney Regatta was first held on Sydney Harbour and it wasn't until the following year, 1838, the 50th. anniversary of the landing, that a public holiday was declared to celebrate this jubilee.
After all what could be nicer than sitting by Sydney Harbour on a lovely sunny day? watching the boats sail by.

In Western Australia, Foundation Day was 1 June, 1829, when Western Australia's coast was first sighted from the merchant ship Parmelia. This led to the establishment of the first permanent British colony in Western Australia. Since 2012, 'Australia Day' in Western Australia, is known as Western Australia Day, recognising Aboriginal Australians as the original inhabitants of Western Australia, and held on the first Monday in June which is their original Foundation Day.

In South Australia it was on 28 December 1836 when colonial government was proclaimed also known as Proclamation Day. Which commemorates British Governor John Hindmarsh arriving at Holdfast Bay on December 28, 1836. Very few South Australians know about this!

Separation Days were celebrated by Queensland and Victoria when these states separated from New South Wales. Queensland on the 10 December 1859 and in Victoria 1 July 1851.

The only day, which people haven't mucked around with, is St. Patrick's Day; apart from the green beer, now that should be abolished, my head hurts thinking about it.

As a seventh generation Australian, descended from convicts, flogged and reluctantly shipped in chains, I'm very happy to be here and will, with gusto celebrate till all the gusto's gone out of me.

And do you remember Empire Day ?
Now that was always worth a barbie!
