  • 1 Feb 1929, MANURIAL EXPERIMENTS ON APPLE TREES. Beaconsfield Tests
    Excerpt: DETAILS OF THE EXPERIMENTS. To carry out the suggestions embodied in the previous paragraph from 700 to 1000 trees of the same variety, and age, and with little variation in size and bearing capacity, would be required. It has been found impossible to secure such numbers in the commercial orchards at our disposal, and a less ambitious scheme has of necessity been adopted for the first year. Plots 1-8 have been laid out in duplicate on each of two orchards in the Upper Beaconsfield district, namely, those of Mr. W. H. Brown (Jonathans, 14 years old), and Captain F. Griffin (Granny Smith's, 12 years old), the only two suitable orchards available at the time the experiment was begun. The object of the trials in these cases will be to see what results, if any, follow on the application of any one of
    the three classes of fertilisers singly, and when all three are applied together for a period of years. At the present time growers are entirely in the dark as to the specific effect of these fertilisers.
    Lack of space precludes, for the time being, a study of the effect of the different combinations of them. In each orchard there are sixteen plots, and except for minor details the arrangement in both is similar. In Captain Griffin's orchard the number of trees available necessitated the reduction of the plot unit to six. In Mr. Brown's orchard a plot consists of eight trees.
    The plot treatments are as follow: —
    Plot.
    1. No manure.
    2. Nitrogeneous manure.
    3. No manure.
    4. Potassic manure.
    5. No manure.
    6. Phosphatic manure.
    7. No manure.
    8. Complete manure (Nitrogenous -|- Potassic -|- Phosphoric).
    9. No manure.
    10. Complete manure.
    11. No manure.
    12. Phosphatic manure.
    13. No manure.
    14. Potassic manure.
    15. No manure.
    16. Nitrogeneous manure.
    Thus it will be seen that the series 1 to 8 is duplicated in plots 9 to 16, and that there are as many control or no-manure plots as there are manure plots.
    GUARD ROWS.
    Every plot is separated from adjacent plots, or other orchard trees not included in the experiment, by a guard row. Trees in, guard rows are given a half-dressing of manure on each side according to the plots they separate. For example, trees in a guard row between a nitrogen plot and a no-manure plot receive a half dressing of nitrogen on the side facing the nitrogen plot, and no manure on the other side. If separating potash and nitrogen plots, they receive a half dressing of potash and a half, dressing of nitrogen respectively, on the sides facing the plots in question. It must be remembered that guard trees do not enter into the experiment; they are merely buffers between plots.36
  • 25 Jul 1931, Manurial Tests with Fruit Trees at Beaconsfield Upper. A POLICY OF PROGRESS
    By "CULTUS"
    THE fruit-growing potentialities of the country in the neighbourhood of Beaconsfield Upper, in the Shire of Berwick, 35 miles east from Melbourne have been demonstrated in a convincing fashion. Nearly 40 years have passed since apples, pears, peaches, apricots, cherries, plums and lemons were planted there. The early trees made good progress, and bore substantial crops. Development, however, was seriously handicapped by the condition of the roads. There is now an excellent highway connecting Beaconsfield Upper, at 600 to 800 feet above sea level, with the metropolitan area by way of Beaconsfield, Berwick and Dandenong. The district roads are moderately good, and the opportunities for those who have a desire to become orchardists are most appealing. Thousands of acres of uncleared land may be purchased at £3 to £5 an acre. Although the soil at Beaconsfield Upper is not rich, it is quite suitable for fruit trees, and there is a fairly reliable rainfall of approximately 40 inches.
    Deep layers of decomposed granitic loam resemble the formations which have made the Harcourt district such a famous fruit-producing place. In the recent season the output from the comparatively small orchards, which have been established over an extensive area, totalled 80,000 cases, and consisted chiefly of apples and pears for the overseas markets. If the export results continue to be as profitable as they have been this year, the time should not be far distant when the annual production of high quality fruit will be 10 times greater than it is now. About 20 years ago the late Mr. Lockey, who was well known in Melbourne business circles, purchased 60 acres of typical hilly land, within a short distance of the Beaconsfield Upper township. Besides erecting an attractive country residence he started an orchard of 22 acres of Jonathan, Cox's Orange Pippin, Yates, Granny Smith and Shorland Queen apple trees. Nearly half of the space was devoted to Jonathans, which were planted at intervals of 20 feet apart each way on the square. Through the centre of the orchard a strip of pine trees was planted. These have made vigorous growth, and are an effective windbreak. Increasing Yields About 15 years ago the management of the orchard known as "Redland" was entrusted to an industrious young man, Mr. W. H. Brown, who had displayed great aptitude for the fruit industry. Five years ago Mr. Brown purchased 26 acres of the estate, in cluding the orchard. For several years after they began to bear the trees received no manure, and became more or less enfeebled. Green manuring and the use of lime and fertilisers resulted in profitable yields. Last season the yield was 4000 cases, of which 3250 were sent to the British and European markets. The fruit arrived in excellent condition and realised the highest ruling rates. A third of the shipments was sold f.o.b., Melbourne, another third was exported on consignment, and the balance sent overseas on the joint account system of selling through the Gippsland marketing scheme, bearing the "Opossum" brand. Mr. Brown is convinced that judicious feeding, correct pruning and thorough cultivation will produce much better yields than have yet been recorded. He expects to raise the annual output to 8000 cases in the next five years, and looks for 6000 cases next season. When the Government, three years ago, decided to conduct manurial experiments in the district, Mr Brown characteristically made available a portion of "Redlands." The work is being carried out under the direction of Messrs. F. M. Read (senior horticultural research officer of the Department of Agriculture) and A. G. Strickland (horticultural research officer). In the experimental section are 16 plots, in each of which are two rows of four Jonathan trees, and a similar number of unmanured trees for checks. A row of guard trees, which receive no treatment, separates the plots. Next to the guard trees on the southern side are two rows of trees receiving no manure. The adjoining guard row also is un treated. Alongside this the double row of trees has been receiving a mixture of 11lb. of super., 3½lb. of nitrate of soda, and 3lb. of potash a tree. Those in plot 2 have received annual dressings in spring of 11lb. of super, only a tree. The manuring in plot 3 has consisted of nitrate of soda at the rate of 3½lb. a tree, and that in plot 4 was 3lb. of sulphate of potash a tree. Immediately preceding the spring ploughing the fertilisers are scattered over the surface, and turned under between three and four inches deep. When the trees receive the annual trimming the prunings are collected and weighed to show the amount of excess branch growth made by each in the season. The fruit also is weighed carefully, and graded, so that the commercial returns are recorded and checked against the cost of manuring. Although three seasons' results are available, officers have not drawn final conclusions. They require additional data, and Mr Brown has expressed his willingness to continue the experimental work. Unofficial Deductions Apart from opinions which the experts may entertain, Mr Brown has noticed the beneficial influence of the heavy dressing of super, nitrate of soda and potash on plot 1. Compared with the trees in plot 2, where super, only has been used, there has been stronger growth and much heavier yields of better quality fruit have been obtained. Super, only, he considers, has not benefited the trees, which are no better at the end of three seasons, than those in the untreated plots. "It would appear," said Mr Brown, when discussing the question last week, "that fertilisers containing nitrogen and potash must be combined with super, for the invigoration of fruit trees in the Beaconsfield Upper district." Support is given to that belief by the beneficial effects which have followed the use, during the last two seasons, of nitrophoska at the rate of 3lb. a tree. In this German preparation, which costs £22 a ton, the certified analysis shows 16 per cent, of nitrogen, 16.5 of phosphoric acid, and 21.5 of potash. This complete fertiliser has been more advantageous to the trees at "Redland" than any of the other manures. Mr Brown is definitely of the opinion that the mixture of super., nitrate of soda and potash has given the best results, which have compared favourably with those from nitrophoska with the advantage of being less expensive. When "Redland" was purchased by Mr Brown there was little grass growth among the trees during the warm months. The supply of humus had to be maintained with green manure by the cultivation of field peas sown at the rate of 1½ bushels an acre, and stimulated with 2 cwt of complete manure an acre. Throughout the orchard there now is an abundance of Cape weed and other grasses. The prolific growth of these has rendered the further cultivation of peas unnecessary. "Redland" is ploughed once a year only, in the latter part of winter. Before the ground is stirred nitrophoska is scattered over a portion of the orchard and turned under between three and four inches deep. That method of application is preferred to ploughing first and harrowing in the artificial manure. The other section is treated with a mixture of three parts of sulphate of ammonia, two of super., and one of sulphate of Potash. This is applied at the rate of 4lb. a tree in the same manner as nitrophoska.
    More Regular Bearing
    Throughout "Redland" are two and three inch agricultural pipes 40 feet apart. These furnish adequate drainage and leave the land moderately dry after the heaviest rains. Following light crops the trees are pruned hard to prevent overbearing and the trimming of the branches is done very sparingly after heavy crops have been gathered. These methods, it has been found, induce more regular bearing and benefit the trees more than thinning after the crops have set. Mr Brown is convinced that pruning on the lines indicated regulates the annual yields better than anything else. At one time the woolly aphis pest necessitated spraying with red oil each year; but the introduction of the Aphelinus mali parasite has checked the aphis, and red oil spraying now is to be confined to seasons when the conditions are favourable for scale and red spiders. To suppress black spot the trees are sprayed with Blair's prepared Bordeaux mixture immediately there are signs of bud movement. A second distribution of the South Australian preparation, when the buds reach the green-tip stage, usually checks the disease without causing the slightest russeting of the skins of the apples. Spraying with Bordeaux mixture after the green-tip stage, Mr Brown has definitely decided, is the cause of russeting. Usually five sprayings suffice to protect the apples from the codlin moth. The first application of arsenate of lead at the rate of 5lb. of paste to 100 gallons of water is made when the petals of the flowers have fallen, but before the closing of the calyx ends of the fruits. If the conditions seem to favour a late attack of black spot, lime-sulphur at a strength of 1 in 40 is mixed with the first arsenate of lead spray.37
  • 21 Jan 1932, One of the worst bush fires in the memory of the oldest residents occurred here on Friday and Saturday, when a devastating fire swept over the district. On Friday, a fire, which had been burning in the scrub, fanned by a strong north wind, menaced the residence of Mr. McMillan, and in response to a call for help, about 50 men were soon engaged in a fierce fight to save the house and outbuildings. This they managed to do, and the fire then jumped the main road and threatened the residence of the Misses McLean; a break was burned, and the house was safe. On Saturday morning another fire commenced near Miss McLean’s boundary fence, and soon the residences of Messrs. Blair, Boker and Gilpin, and a number of others were in danger. A large band of willing workers managed to save the houses, but unfortunately they could not save the fine lemon orchard of Mr. McMillan, which was destroyed, also a week-end residence of Mr. Harkins. The heat was so great when the place got alight that it was im possible to get near it. In the after noon a sudden change of wind to the south caused the township to be menaced, and a desperate call for help was sent out, and in reply volunteers from Berwick, Narre Warren and Dandenong came to augment the local Bush Fire Brigade, until there were over 200 men, under the direction of Constable Barrett, and other leaders, engaged in the desperate effort to save the homes of Madame Montigue, Messrs. McBride, McDonald, Harvey-Smith, Rev. T. Greenwood, Robinson, J. Campbell, Major Campbell, Miss Elliott, J. Deville, C. Ellis, Claydon, Wright, Binding and Brown. The worst fight was at “Kyogle,” Mr. McDonald’s house; at one time it was felt that this fine residence would go, but the determined fight put up by the willing workers saved it. Here it was that anxiety was felt for one band who had become surrounded by flames, but they managed to get clear, although some of them succumbed to heat and smoke after getting out. The fine garden and plantation of Major Campbell was swept by the fire, despite the efforts of the workers, and hundreds of pounds worth of valuable plants and trees were destroyed, and the fine house was only saved by the superhuman efforts of the fire fighters. Miss Elliott’s house got alight, and part of the roof had to be stripped off before the fire could be put out. Mr. Ellis had the fence and pavilion attached to his tennis court destroyed, and the fire swept through his orchard, only being stopped within a few feet of the house. The house of Mr. Wright was saved by burning a break, as was Mr. Brown’s house and lemon orchard.
    On Sunday afternoon a small fire developed in Salisbury Gully, but it was soon got under control; whilst this was being put out an urgent call for help came from “The Towers,” Mr. Berglund’s property. A large body of men were rushed out, and the fire was got under control before very much damage was done. On Sunday a fire, which had started on the Saturday in Cordner’s Gully, crossed the Officer rd., and threatened the orchard of Mr. F. Love, but it was kept out, and, with the exception of the loss of some fencing, not very much damage was done.38
  • 24 Apr 1932, BEACONSFIELD UPPER.-Twenty members of the Viking Club of the junior department of the Y.M.C.A. spent the week-end at Runnymede. A dance and social was given on Saturday evening. On Sunday evening members of the club assisted at the service at the Anglican Church.39
  • 22 Mar 1934, BEACONSFIELD UPPER -The Viking Club of the YMCA, Melbourne held its conference at Runnymede. There were 38 members of the club in camp, with Mr Gollen in charge. - There is great activity among orchardists of the district. They are making every effort to fill the demands for fruit caused by the great loss in the hot weather.40
  • 10 Feb 1936, TOWN MENACED BY FIRE. TWO HUNDRED FIGHT FLAMES. BEACONSFIELD UPPER OUTBREAK.
    BEACONSFIELD UPPER Sunday - A bush fire menaced the township of Beaconsfield yesterday, but 200 fighters checked the spread of the flames and a heavy downpour of rain virtually extinguished the fire which was the most serious one. In the district this summer.
    Had it not been for the good work of the bush fire brigade assisted by volunteers, considerable loss of property might have occurred.
    The fire began on Friday in the gully below Mr McMillan's house on the main road from Beaconsfield to Beaconsfield Upper. A south east wind carried the fire up a gully to the back of the properties of Messrs Wright and Binding. It was checked there by beaters but crossed the road and damaged the orchard of Mr Walter Brown. The wind dropped in the evening and it was considered that the danger had passed.
    On Saturday morning, however, the south west wind carried the fire up another gully and only excellent work by the brigade and others saved the houses of Miss Elliot and Lieut Colonel Campbell. The wind was working round toward the township. To prevent that danger the brigade under the direction of the captain (Mr a'Beckett) burnt a break of about three quarters of a mile.41
  • 10 Feb 1936, The fire, which destroyed hundreds of acres of grass and threatened the homes of Messrs A. J. Wright and Brown and Colin Wright at Upper Beaconsfield late last night and early today, is now under control but is being watched by officers of the fire brigade.42
  • 30 May 1936, Granny Smith Apples Highly Esteemed At Beaconsfield Upper. GOOD EXPORT PRICES REALISED.
    One of the first districts in Victoria in which the Granny Smith apple received attention on a commercial scale was Beaconsfield Upper. This was more than 30 years ago. It is now strongly represented in the orchards of that locality, and enjoys a fine reputation for big yields combined with good prices. The Variety also has made headway in other parts of the State, but is not likely to challenge the supremacy of the Jonathan, or gain anything like the strong position it occupies in New South Wales. In Northern Victoria and some of the Mornington Peninsula fruitgrowing areas results have not justified the early enthusiasm shown for Granny Smith.
    THIS may be due to many factors, such as poor-quality trees from the nursery, unfavorable soil conditions, and unsuitable climate. Whatever the shortcomings of the variety in other districts, the fact remains that at Beaconsfield Upper many growers regard it as their best apple. This opinion is based upon market returns, which are the crucial test where a man is engaged in the industry for a livelihood.
    Mr W. H. Brown, of the Waldor orchard, unhesitatingly declares that as an export apple the Granny Smith is unrivalled. He has 300 trees of the variety, and estimates the return from these during the last season at £1 a tree. The average yield was two and a half to three cases a tree, but one tree gave 12 cases. It was among the first planted on the property 22 years ago. Several cages of Granny Smith have been sold this year at 7/6 f.o.r., compared with 5/ for Jonathan. Mr. Brown states that the Granny Smith is the strongest polleniser he knows of. It gives particularly good results on the Jonathan or Yates, which bloom at the same time. During the last thrips year he had only one large Granny Smith tree in a block of Jonathans. The latter, of five trees around this Granny Smith, carried a lot of fruit, but outside that area the crop gradually dwindled away to nothing.
    The trouble has been corrected by inserting Granny Smith grafts in the Jonathans, at intervals. The wedge or strap graft is favored, and the peg system has not been a success. This orchardist, however, hesitates to condemn it, because possibly he did not exercise due care demanded by the operation. In grafting, he considers, the principal essential is to have the scions well fitted. He proposes to change over 200 Shoreham Queen trees to Granny Smith, the former having been eliminated from the list of export varieties. Mr. Brown, although only a young man, has been engaged in fruitgrowing on the same property for 20 years. As a boy he worked on the land for the late Mr Lockey, and it is about eight years since he purchased the orchard. It bears evidence of sound management in every respect, and thoroughness is the keynote.
    Small Trees
    The land is undulating, and the soil, consisting of a grey loam, of granitic origin, ranges from two to four inches deep. Trees on this country do not grow vigorously, but are very productive. Those planted in the shallower soil look the best which may be at tributable to the roots having more ready access to the moisture. Mr. Brown is strongly of the opinion that the fact of trees coming into bearing comparatively early is not a good sign. An illustration is provided by 10 acres of the "Waldor" orchard, where some trees were producing at four years, while others did not give appreciable quantities of fruit until they had been planted for eight years. The latter are now much larger, and yield better than those which bore in the fourth year.
    Concrete pipes. 60 ft apart and 2 ft 6 in. in the ground, ensure good drainage. which is of the utmost importance and often is equally necessary on undulating land such as this as on fairly level country. Harvesting for the season is now being completed with the picking of Yates. The trees carry a heavy crop of this variety, which also is of a good size. Thinning is more necessary with Yates than with any other kind. The work should be completed before Christmas; so that the energy of the trees will not be spent in making growth which subsequently has to be removed. Owing largely to the dry summer Jonathans were light, only 700 cases having been picked, compared with 2000 in a favorable season. Nevertheless, the fruit was of splendid quality, and with the high yields of Granny Smith and Yates, and a fair crop of Cox's Orange Pippin, more than 2000 cases should be available for export.
    Export Trade Favored
    Mr. Brown does not put any of his fruit into cold storage, and has found that over a period of years the oversea trade is more profitable than the local market. He was a grader with accommodation for six different varieties.
    Manurial experiments of the Department of Agriculture are conducted on this property. Acting on the data furnished by these, Mr. Brown advocates the 2:2:1 mixture, comprising two parts each of super and sulphate of ammonia and one part of potash. An allowance of 4lb. a tree is distributed in the spring, and in the autumn this fertiliser is applied as a top-dressing at the rate of 1 cwt an acre. The principal object of the top-dressing is to induce the growth of trefoils, capeweed, etc., so that they may be ploughed in during the spring for green manure. Last year there was a growth 2ft. high and considerable difficulty was experienced in turning the material under. Even now there is a fair quantity of green stuff between the trees. Although rather expensive, it is pointed out that a complete manure supplies all the elements required by the trees. Super alone does not give satisfactory results, while sulphate of ammonia is not last ing in its effects.
    All the cultivation work on "Waldor" is performed with a rotary hoe, which is described by Mr. Brown as a fine implement. One of the principal reasons for its introduction was the strong hold gained by couch growth in the orchard, but it has since been completely eradicated. The rotary hoe pulverises the soil thoroughly and, driven by motor power, enables cultivation to be done expeditiously. The ground is kept well stirred from spring to the beginning of February, in order to conserve the moisture and deal with weeds.
    Bordeaux and Lime Sulphur
    This orchardist advocates the Bordeaux mixture spray as a safeguard against black spot. He gives two applications—one at the full strength of 6-4-40 at greentip, and the other at half strength at the pink stage. An exception is provided by the Cox's Orange Pippin variety, which is treated with lime sulphur. The skin of this apple is delicate, and russeting is caused by Bordeaux mixture.
    Mr. Brown states that this variety, of which he has 100 trees, is deserving of special care, as last year he received £1 a case for the fruit in the export market. On the other hand, he has had very unsatisfactory results with lime sulphur on the Granny Smith, and treatment of it with that fungicide causes the loss of fruit.
    Such an experience, he admits, is not general throughout the district and several orchardists use lime sulphur successfully on the Granny Smith and other varieties. He has come to the conclusion that the weather conditions prevailing at the time of application have some effect.
    "Not for the 20 years I have been on this property did codlin moth give much trouble until last season," observed Mr. Brown. He always applies four sprays of arsenate of lead — 2½lb. of powder to 80 gallons of water—and two of white oil in proportions of one gallon to 80 gallons of water. These, however, proved insufficient for the recent crop. Spraying, which normally ceases at the end of January, had to be continued until late in February owing to a brood during that month. Even then it was found difficult to cope with the pest which appeared to have been undeterred by the arsenate of lead covering. In addition to spraying, lures containing vinegar and water, and bag band ages are used to capture codlin moths. Oil treated corrugated cardboard band ages are to be tried this year. The average orchardist prides himself on being able to prune correctly, and judging by the results recorded on "Waldor" from fairly small trees, the owner's work in this direction is along correct lines. Generally his policy is to leave all the lateral growth the year following a heavy crop, and to prune hard after a light crop. He is president of the Beaconsfield Upper Fruitgrowers' Association, and a member of the committee of the Gippsland Fruit Marketing Association. Both these bodies have done good work for the industry.

  • 26 Apr 1928, BROWN—MARNELL. A very pretty wedding took place at the St Paul's Church of England, Korumburra, on Saturday, April 14, the contracting parties being Ernest Richard, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs A. Brown, of Beaconsfield, and Ruby Aileen, second youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs M. Marnell, of Bena, and formerly of Newry. Rev H O. Watson officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father, was becomingly attired in a white crepe-de-chene frock, with side panels touched with silver lace and caught with orange blossom. She carried a shower bouquet of white cactus dahlias and ferns. The bridesmaids were Miss Lily Marnell, sister of the bride, who wore a powder blue crepe-de-chene relieved with silver lace, and hair band to match, and Miss Muriel Brown, sister of the bridegroom, who was frocked in pale pink crepe-de-chene relieved with lace, and hair band to match. Mr Charles Craner, of St. Vincents' Palace, Albert Park, acted as best man, and Mr Gordon Whelan, of Outtrim, as groomsman. After the ceremony was performed an adjournment was made to Mrs McHarg's cafe, where breakfast was served. The happy couple left by the evening train for Melbourne. Their future home will be at Beaconsfield.16

Land-Note*26 Feb 1885 GEM-E-3D: Application considered by land board held at Cranbourne, and recommended that this application be granted for 250 acres noth of Miss Seeley and west of Saley and Lynes.6 
Land-Note13 Apr 1886 To Mr Sanderson Gembrook West. I have to return the cheque of Chas Souter forwarded by Mr Sanderson in payment of survey fees of 250 acres at Gembrook as I am informed by the Lands Department the application has been declared abandoned and the land will be thrown open for selction under the Land Act 1884.
Cheque £15 on Colonial Bank Frankston enclosed.

Land-Note25 Apr 1886 GEM--M: Beaconsfield 25 April 1886. To the Minister of Lands Melbourne. When the notice came to Gembrook I was at Beaconsfield and did not get the notice till after the holidays then I had not enough money without giving notice to draw out which would take longer and I thought it did not matter for a few weeks till I finished the job and got paid which was April 10th 1886 and got a cheque and sent it directly I got it. William Sanderson.6 
Land-Note*27 Apr 1886 GEM--M: Charles Souter. Leigh Hill, Frankston April 27th 1886. Mr Gaunson. Dear Sir, Yours of the 22nd to hand. Thank you for interesting yourself on Sandersons account and I do hope you will succeed in getting Sandersons application for land at Gembrook, as it would be very hard for him not to get it. I know the man to be deserving and works very hard. He has never selected before, has been in the colony 20 years and has saved upwards £300. He was about to leave on a trip to (?)land and I induced him to take up land instead of spending his money going away, and gave him the necessary information re the selecting as I have done [for] scores of other persons. Beyond this I have no personal interest in this land. The man has worked for me on and off 15 years and has also been in Mr Akehurst P.M. employ who gave him an excellent character. I enclose Sandersons statement. He brought it over today but it is not testified before a justice, he did not understand that part of your letter. So I am keeping him here at Frankston to do up my garden for a few days in case he may be wanted. I would not take his declaration as it might appear that I was more interested than I have said, but I believe the enclosed statement is true in every particular.
I thank you again on behalf of Sanderson and trust he may have speedy possession.
Your very truly, Charles Souter.6 
Land-Note19 May 1886 Application for 250 acres Parish of Gembrook by William Sanderson, labourer and gardener, c/o Gissing Beaconsfield. States that the land is north of land selected by Mr Fox and the same land as granted to me under Land Act 69 sec 19, but did not pay survey fees in time because I was away at work.6 
Land-Note22 May 1886 GEM--M: It is supposed that Sanderson has only become anxious to obtain this land since he has heard the proposed railway is to be very near it. I beg to suggest that the land be withdrawn from selection pending further enquiry.
8.6.86 Sanderson and three other applicants having now lodged applications under Sect 32. I would suggest that they be dealt with on their merits by Local Land Boad (Internal Memos Lands Department.)6 
Land-Note20 Apr 1887 To Mr Brisbane Esq. Beaconsfield.
Leigh Hill, Frankston April 20th 1887. Mr Brisbane, Dear Sir, I have never heard anything from the Land department about being allowed to occupy my land at Gembrook. If you remember this land was granted to me by the land board at the same time as your application for 640 acres was granted. The survey fees was immediately paid and I am waiting most anxiously to go on to the land I wanted to settle down before the winter set in and I cannot think the reason of the delay, unless the surveyor has neglected to survey it. It would be some inconvenience for me to come to Melbourne to see about it. Would it be troubling you too much and would you oblige me by inquiring about this if you are at the Land Office any day soon.
Thanking you in anticipation
I am your obedient servant William Sanderson , c/o Chas Souter.6 
Land-Note1 Jul 1887 GEM--M1: Lease under Sec 32 Land Act 1884 for 116a 1r 31p, for the term of 11 years 6 months less three days, rent 19/6 per annum.6 
Land-Note7 Jan 1888 GEM--M1: Applies to select 117 acres out of his grazing area as an agricultural allotment. Sanderson stated that he was a farm labourer and gardener, chiefly working at Frankston.
On 10 Feb 1888 he writes to the Secretary for Lands. "Sir, The enclosed lease is in surrender of me being granted licence to occupay the within named 117 acres under the agricultural allotment 111 Land Act 1884 application lodged with department 9/2/88. Sir, I am your most obedient servant William Sanderson, Frankston P.O.6 
Land-Note9 Jun 1888 GEM--M1: Frankston June 9th 1888. The Honourable The Secretary for Lands. Sir, The enclosed letter only reached me today. I am working for Mr Souter at Frankston and had left word with Mr Wade Postmaster Gembrook West to send my letters to me here and he does so, but the enclosed was addressed Gembrook East and it has been knocking around the country for over a month now. Put Gembrook West on the inside right enough when I got your letter telling me to sign release of Pastoral lease. I did so and sent it to you. I also sent the lease and registered the letter at least my master Mr Souter did so for me, it must be in your office. I want the licence to occupy my land as soon as you can let me have it, because I don't want to lose this season like I did last year. I was told I must not fence the land or build before I get the licence. May I make a start? I shall finish my job here in a fortnight. Please let me know this as early as possible, am sending the letter to P. Office Frankston. I have been to the Post Office at Frankston and got a duplicate receipt of the registered letter I sent and enclose it for you to see. I think it must be the one Mr Souter sent for me.
Dear Sire I am your obedient servant, William Sanderson.6 
Land-Note1 Jul 1888 GEM--M1: New Lease Section 42, Land Act 1884. Yearly rent £5-17/.6 
Land-Note16 Jul 1894 GEM--M1: Being the holder of Licence No 1666 under Section 42... and having occupied the said land for a period of at least three and a half years, and having complied with the conditions of such licence, I hereby apply for a Lease of said land, and for the certificate of the Board of Land and Works for the improvements thereon.
Although not all of the land was enclosed (the western boundary was still to be fenced, as he was waiting to clear the line from timber and scrub), Sanderson had put up 35 chains of post and 2 rails, split stuff fences; 51.5 chains of post rail and wire; 16 chains of post and wire; and 14 chains of log fences, valued at £60-11-0. His neighbours, Messrs Lyne and C.H.S. Ladd had contributed to the cost of fencing.
He had erected a weatherboard house with iron roof 45x30 feet value £350; stabling, barn, shed, pig styes &c. 50x14x18 feet made from palings with an iron roof over all, value £55.
He did not have water storage as he had natural creeks running through his property.
He had planted an orchard and garden on one and a half acres, which was planted and in bearing. it had underground drainage. He further grubbed and ploughed deep with bullocks, which was ready to put under crop this season. He also ringbarked about 20 acres ready for grubbing - total value of these improvements £102.1.0
His dwelling house had six rooms, and he had resided on the land for the last 3 1/2 years. He had no other place of abode at present. he had no family, and sometimes did a little work with hare trapping &c.5,6,7 
Land-Note8 Oct 1894 GEM--M1: Gembrook Oct 8th 1894. The Secretary for Lands. Sir, In reply to your inquiry as to where I resided during the two and half years of currency of my licence that was unaccounted for in my application for lease. I beg to inform you that for one year I was away at work and the other year + half I lived at Gembrook about 3 miles away, during wich time I did about 6 months work on the land getting ready to build house + make the garden, but I did not actually reside upon the land until the house was built, at which time I had four acres grubbed, cleared off and ploughed.
Trusting these explanations are satisfactory.
I am your most obedient Servant William Sanderson.6 
Land-Note27 Nov 1901 GEM--M1: De Courcy Ireland, Solicitor &c. Harkaway (previously Beaconsfield). Nov 27 1901. The Secretary for Lands Melbourne. Sir, Mr William Sanderson has handed me your letters of the 28 June 1894 in respect to his selection of land under Sec 42 Land Act 1884 in the Parish of Gembrook containing 117 acres. He is now desirous of obtaining a crown Grant for the land and as he has mislaid the form of application which you enclosed has asked me to obtain another form.
Will you kindly forward me same and at the same time inform me what amount is due on the land together with the fees &c. to enable him to the Grant.
I have the honour to be Sir, your obedient servant. De Courcy Ireland.
In reply the Department of Lands and Survey stated that the balance was £64.7.0, the grant would cost £1.6.0 and the assurance £0.4.11 - total £65.17.11.6

    Sir: I have read with interest (17/8/46) of the critical operation that was performed aboard the Themistocles on her 78th voyage to Australia. I was one of the original crew who went from England to Belfast to board her when she came off the slips. I was a baker. I am wondering whether there are any others of that crew who may remember that wild night going across the Irish Channel? The first trip made by the Themistocles was to Spithead to attend the naval review. There were 900 guests on board.

    As an outcome of a collision in Burwood road, in which two motor cars and a motor cycle were concerned, the driver of one of the cars, Percy Lockey, of Upper Beaconsfield, was charged at Hawthorn yesterday with having driven in a dangerous manner, and the driver of the motor cycle, David Sloan, of Morang-road, was charged with having driven negligently. Both were also charged with having driven without a licence.
    Mrs Frances Mould said that on the 10th September, she was driving a car along Burwood road, when Sloan's motor cycle came suddenly out of Morang road, narrowly avoided witness's car, and swerved across the road in front of another car. Witness did not see the collision, but she heard the crash.
    Sloan said that as he came out of Morang road he took all precautions, and did not cut the corner. The accident was due to the speed of Lockey's car. Witness admitted that he had not taken out a licence.
    Lockey said he was only driving at a moderate speed. The motor cycle, in edging the first car, swung right right across his track. Witness's car struck the back wheel of the cycle, causing it to overturn. Witness admitted his licence had expired.
    Sloan was fined £3, with 19/ costs, on the negligent driving charge, and 20/ on the no-licence charge.
    Mr Grant, P.M., said the bench was of opinion that Sloan was responsible for the accident. The charge of dangerous driving against Lockey would be dismissed, but on the no licence charge he would be fined 20/, with 19/ costs.43

  • 10 Jun 1930, BEACONSFIELD UPPER. Fire destroyed a house owned by Mr. Funnell. Mrs. Briggs, to whom the house was let, was in Melbourne, and Mr. Briggs had left the house about half an hour when the flames were noticed. In a short time the building had been burnt to the ground. The furniture, which belonged to Mrs. Briggs, was destroyed. Owing to heavy rain falling at the time some of the outbuildings were saved. It is understood that both the house and furniture were covered by insurance.35
  • 11 Jan 1939, BERWICK-The most serious fire has been on the Sugarloaf at Beaconsfield Upper where the Upper Beaconsfield brigade under Mr Dave McDonald saved the homes of Messrs Funnell, Richardson, Sulman, Savory, Joseland, and Edwards. Another fire broke out near the forest plantation of Mr H Downing but late this evening was under control.36
