Having discovered that descendants of Mornington (Osborne) pioneer,George Hutchins, had moved to the Williamstown area, I recalled that descendants of Ben Stenniken (Rye,Tootgarook)and William Jamieson (Rosebud) had done the same.

William Jamieson was the grantee on 16-8-1872 of crown allotment 14 of the Rosebud Fishing Village, between the Jetty's Cafe site and the Mechanics' Institute (formerly the Rosebud library.) It is probable that William held his 20 metre wide block on lease from the crown because of a fishing licence and that he and the other purchasers on that date, all known to be fishermen, were given the opportunity to buy the blocks on which their huts stood before they were included in auction lists. Some other fishermen, such as Fred Vine (Vean) probably retained their blocks on lease from the crown as a type of pre-emptive right; Vine's title (grant) being issued on 30-8-1873 and that of Joe Peters (the black fiddler from BALTIMORE) on 5-3-1873.

JAMIESON. On the 4th July, at his residence,26 Osborne street, Williamstown, George Edward, dearly loved husband of Evelyn Jamieson,loving father of William and baby Madge, beloved son of the late William and Adelaide Jamieson, of Rosebud, loved brother of Margaret (Williamstown), Robert (N.S.W.), and James (South Africa), aged 37 years. (P.1,Argus,6-7-1923.)

COUPER.-On the 1st January, 1925, at her residence, 64 Station street. Box Hill, Nora,the dearly beloved wife of Ramsay Couper, and fondly loved mother of Sybil, Evelyn(Mrs.Jamieson*), and Guy late of Rosebud, Dromana.
(P.1, Argus,2-1-1925.) (*Wife of George Edward Jamieson of Williamstown.)

Ramsay and Nora Couper bought "The Thicket",the southern half of crown allotment 14, Wannaeue as detailed in my journal about the Hindhope Estate at Rosebud. Crown allotment 14 of 114 acres (between First Avenue and Boneo Rd from the beach road to Eastbourne Rd) was granted to Hugh Glass,a huge landholder who became insolvent. The land was subdivided into portions of 29, 29, 20,20 and 16 acres, the first two becoming Hindhope (Randall,then Rigg) and the rest Ramsay and Nora's "The Thicket" now indicated by the curving streets,such as Warranilla Avenue,between Hope St houses and Eastbourne Rd.

JAMIESON-On the 10th January, at Melbourne, Adelaide dearly loved youngest daughter of the late William and Adelaide Jamieson of Rosebud,and loved sister of Robert, Margaret, James, and George.
(P.1, Argus, 31-1-1921.)

JAMIESON.-On February 19 (suddenly),at Sydney, William Robert Jamieson (late of Rosebud), loved brother of Margaret L.(Ringwood), and loved uncle of William R. and Madge (Box Hill). (P.2,Argus,24-2-1945.)

I found William Jamieson's grave in the Dromana Cemetery soon after I started my Mornington Peninsula research in 2010.I didn't expect to find any record of it,but I did thanks to Family Tree Circles champ,ngairedith.

Itellya is researching local history on the Mornington Peninsula and is willing to help family historians with information about the area between Somerville and Blairgowrie. He has extensive information about Henry Gomm of Somerville, Joseph Porta (Victoria's first bellows manufacturer) and Captain Adams of Rosebud.
