ROBERT ANDERSON OF "BARRAGUNDA", CAPE SCHANCK, VIC, AUST., HIS TWO MARRIAGES AND MOST OF HIS CHILDREN.

THE MANY LINKS GIVEN WILL HAVE TO BE COPIED AND PASTED INTO YOUR SEARCH BAR.

The Cape Schanck run was cut in three;
The western part being called Burrabong
After the creek in Fingal flowing south
Into Bushrangers Bay, just west of Main Creek's mouth.
Robert Anderson had managed the run for Barker
Where the waves broke with a noise like thunder
On the cliffs along the cape.
Such humble employment he's soon escape
And build Barragunda
Overlooking Bass Strait water,
Having married his new boss's daughter.

A BIT OF ANDERSON GENEALOGY.
I remember an article about a son of Robert Anderson enlisting straight from Geelong Grammar /College but I can't find it.
Godfrey, son of Robert and Edith Mary, nee Howitt was born on 24-1-1869 at 198 Collins street east* but the birth was obviously registered at South Melbourne.
*https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/5819211
His full name was Godfrey Howitt Anderson and he married Margaret Maude Howitt (youngest daughter of Alfred W.
Howitt, Heanor, East Malvern) on 15-11-1898 but died aged only 33 on 18-5-1902 at "Eastwood", Bairnsdale.

A "Robert Anderson, Cape Schanck" trove search had failed to find his death notice in 1923 because Cape was digitised as {ape (now corrected), but the death notice of a daughter of the second marriage was found.
