Adolphe Frederick Seelenmeyer

M, #6312, b. 15 Oct 1855, d. 10 Nov 1922
UBeac Research* DR ADOLPHE FREDERICK SEELENMEYER later SEELEY Born "Frederick Adolphus" 15 Oct 1855 Strand London Died 1922 West Melbourne Victoria
Dr Seelenmeyer was a son of George Samuel Seelenmeyer & Sarah Needham
Adolphe Frederick & his older brother Henry Samuel (b1840) came to Victoria, and both were Doctors of Medicine

1875/9 Henry Samuel m Sarah Hannah Hall (b 1855 par John & Hannah nee Edwards) St Kilda
1887 Frederick Adolphus m Alexandra Mary Munster St Kilda

The death notices for Adolphe & Alexandra show the surname change from Seeleymeyer to Seeley. This is perhaps a similar story to that of the Kraushaar family, in response to an anti-German sentiment at the time.
1922 SEELEY 10 November (suddenly) Adolphe Frederick Sealey formerly Seelenmeyer, dearly loved husband of A M Sealey, of Landcox, North Brighton, aged 67 years. No flowers, by request. Psalm 16.11
1946 SEELEY. — On December 31, 1946 at 54 Finch street, East Malvern, Alexandra Mary, widow of the late A. F. Seeley, and loved mother of A. H. Norman (deceased), Cyril (deceased), Frederic (deceased), D. M., N. V., G. W., and G. C. —Absent from the body, present with the Lord.

Landcox Hall ca. 1850
Following local public consultations, three allotments to the south of the mansion, which also included the ornamental lake, were purchased by the City of Brighton for a public park, and the site of 10 acres was fenced and named Landcox Park in 1905. In 1907, ownership of Landcox passed to Dr Robert Mailer, a Collins Street physician and the occupier was Mrs Emily Harcourt, Specialist. Mailer sold the mansion and 10 acres Dr Adolph Seelenmeyer during 1911.
It is not known if the Seelenmeyer/Seeley name is still current among the EB's.1 
Probate (Will)* 186/835 & 243/988 (14 Oct 1931). Adolphe A SEELEY. Date of grant: 01 Feb 1923; Date of death: 10 Nov 1922; Occupation: Med Practitioner; Residence: M Brighton.2 
Name Variation Adolphe Frederick Seelenmeyer was also known as Seeley. 
UBeac Research Dr Adolphe Frederic Seelenmeyer
A mentor of James Kerr Johnston (In his latter years, J K Johnston used to speak of the influence that Dr Seelenmeyer had on him as a young man.)
Frederick Adolphus Seelenmeyer was born in London on 15 October 1855. It is not clear how he came to Australia, but as Adolphe Frederick Seelenmeyer he matriculated at the University of Melbourne in 1877 (at age 22), having been tutored by Mr Clezy rather than attending a conventional school.
In 1887 Dr Seeley was married to Alexandra Mary Munster (1863-1922) in Melbourne.
Adolphe F. Seelenmeyer was listed in the 1875 Sands and McDougall's Melbourne and Suburban Directory at 107 Albert Street, East Melbourne. In parenthesis are the words "(Education Branch)". This might have meant the Education Branch of the Bible and Tract Depot, run by Henry Seelenmeyer, the chemist.
Adolphe's private residence frequently changed. In 1878 he was in Darling Street. There was no listing for him in 1879 and 1880, but in 1881 and 1882 he lived at 7 Wodonga Terrace, Cardigan Street, Carlton. In 1883 and 1884 he and Henry both lived at 2 Goer Terrace, Lygon Street, Carlton. However, at this stage Adolphe was not listed as a physician.
Adolphe was not listed in the directories of 1885, 1886 and 1887, probably because he was studying medicine overseas. He returned to Melbourne during 1886 and was Surgeon at the Melbourne Homœopathic Hospital from 1886 to 1894.
Adolphe became registered in Victoria on 7 January 1887, a graduate of Brussels and Edinburgh. His qualifications were listed in the Australasian Medical Directory of 1892 as being "L et L. Mid. RCP et RCS, Edin. 1855; MD Brux 1885".
In 1888 he was recorded as being a homœopathic doctor who occupied 109 Collins Street East, which became number 88 when the street numbering system changed in the 1890s. (This had been the premises of Dr G.T. Teague). He was still there in 1896, but then moved to East Street, St Kilda in 1900, then 30 Collins Street in 1903, and by 1911 he was in Hawthorn Road Caulfield.
Dr Seelenmeyer, who truncated his name to Dr Seeley, obviously prospered. In 1911 he purchased Landcox Hall from Dr Robert Mailer. Lancox Hall was a fine mansion in Milroy Street, North Brighton, set in 10 acres of land. This was his final address in 1922.
Henry Samuel Seelenmeyer (born 23 April 1840, an older brother of Adolph) was a homeopathic chemist who also ran a Bible and Tract Depot. UK birth records indicate that there were two sisters: Catherine Louisa born 1949 and Julia Leonora born 1851.
The eldest son of Frederick Adolphus Seelenmeyer and Alexandra Mary was Dr Adolph Henry Seelenmeyer (b.1888), a medical graduate of Melbourne University (1910). Another son, Cyril Robert (b. 1892), was a footballer and veterinary surgeon who went with the Australian army to France in WW1 to care for the army horses. Cyril was awarded the Military Cross but died of wounds in 1918. Another son was Edward Frederic Seelenmeyer (b. 1893). AFS died suddenly on 10 November 1922 aged 67 years.
Oral family history states that Dr Seelemeyer had the first motor-car in Melbourne and that JKJ used to travel with him when visiting patients. Dr S always carried a bottle of eucalyptus oil that he sniffed between patients "to kill the germs." It is not difficult to imagine that, in the days before electric starter motors for cars, carrying an energetic young man who could crank the car after each stop would suit a frock-coated and top-hatted doctor very well indeed! (And, with his head for figures, JKJ would have been good at collecting the fees.)
[Note that Adolph Henry Seelenmeyer (known as "Dolph Seeley") would have been the same age as JKJ. Was this AS a school-friend of JKJ? Is that the connection?]
See: http://www.historyofhomeopathy.com.au/people/item/148-seelenmeyer.html
On 29 April 1892, Seelenmeyer's son Cyril was born at 88 Collins St. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article8417771
