To A J Skene Esq., Surveyor General of Victoria, Melbourne
Sir, We the selectors and residents of Gembrook and Packenham County of Mornington humbly request that you will please order that a new road may be surveyed through the selection of Mr Arthur Knight in the Parish of Packenham. This road we request will be to start from the north east corner of Mr Knight's selection, thence south west distant at about five chains more or less and being west from the two chain road and thence ending at the south east corner of the said selection. This new line of road will be on the side of a very high hill and with little expense can be made into a very good road. The present one chain road is too steep that it is almost impossible for us to get either up or down it and ought never to have been surveyed in that place. Trusting that you will give this a favourable consideration.
We have the honor to be, Sir, your most obedient servants.

From the defendant's own evidence it appeared that he had within the past six months paid £3000 in cash for 170 acres of land, cattle and farming plant. In spite of this admission he contended that he could not contribute towards the keep of his aged parents. Henham was ordered to pay 16s per week—8s for each parent.14

(Witness) Land-Note12 Mar 1878 Sarah Ann Smith, Pakenham. 873/49
Memo for the Surveyor General,
The question for decision herein is not, I think only the bare legal aspect of the case but the policy involved in the issue of licenses under Sec 49 L.A.1869 to married women.
In the case of Mrs Walker the late Minister (Mr Gillies) directed the refusal of the Application on the opinion of the late Attorney general (Mr Kerferd) that Sec 21 part II L.A.1869 prohibited the issue of such license. I do not think Mr Copingers opinion can be held against that of the Chief Law Officer of the Crown and therefore the law as at present interpreted is against the issue of the license.
With regard to the policy of such issue I would submit that in nive cases out of ten the husband would certainly derive benefit directly from the wife's selection and the license would virtually be his. Ashe could also hold a license in his own name it would certainly lead to a grave evasion of the provision of the 49th Sec L.A.1869. In the cases of margaret Anderson and of Ellen Kitz, I am informed these ladies were married at the time they made application in their maiden names. Their applications therefore were to say the least of it most disingenious and misleading. If the issue of these licenses is to be upheld then there can be no reason why Mrs L.L. Smith shoudl be treated differently.
I beg to be instructed definitely respecting the issue of licenses under Sec 49 L.A.1869 to married women.
J. J. Blunden
12 Mar 1878.8 
(Witness) Land-Note1878 Sarah Ann Smith, Pakenham. 873/49
Prior to obtaining the valuation of improvements in this case as directed by the Hon. the Minister, I would desire to be instructed upon the question of selection under Sec. 49 by married women.
The practice of the Department hitherto, has been to refuse all such applications unless the applicants possessed a protestion order or were judicially separated from their husbands.
Lately however several applications made by married women for land at Pakenham have been granted notably Mrs Salmon and Miss Kitz - in this latter case, the applicant although married signed the application in her maiden name and thus it was passed. In Mrs Salmon's case, she also, signed her maiden name Anderson, but as I was aware that she was married, made some enquiries upon the subject and was informed by Mr Murrah and mr Walstab, that the application could go on in her married name as a legal opinion in favour of such a course had been obtained some time before in a similar case; and subsequently the Hon. the Minister gave a similar direction.
The land applied for by Mrs Smith has been thrown open for selection in the usual way but has not been applied for again, and might therefore I think, if the above views be upheld, be now granted to her, as her application was refused in the first instance under a misapprehension as to its legality.
I presume that the direction in this matter will similarly affect applications for transfers to married women.
With regard to Mrs Salmon, I may mention that I believe that certain property which was left to her by her first husband, was prior to her 2nd marriage, absolutely settled on her and on mrs Kitz's application the District Surveyor has made a memo that she "holds property in her own right under protection order and that her husband is alive" (name J C F Brache).
Both Mrs Salmon's and Mrs Brache's husbands hold licenses under Sec. 49 for land adjoining their wives' allotments.

  • 11 Oct 1939, Fatal Cart Accident. Evidence At Inquest. CANNING DOWNS ROAD TRAGEDY
    The death of John Henry Brisbane (71), who resided with his wife and family on the old Stanthorpe-road and who was admitted to the Warwick District Hospital on September 16 following injuries received when the cart he was driving overturned on the Canning Downs-road, about 2½ miles from Warwick, was the subject of an inquiry by the Coroner (Mr. W. P. Wilson, P.M.) Witnesses were examined by First-Class Sergeant Mairs.
    Constable A. A. Zeller said Brisbane was driving a horse and cart and was returning about 5 p.m. on September 16 with a load of sacchaline from a Mr. Martin's property. He had just crossed a culvert when the cart overturned and he received a broken right arm and left leg, which subsequently caused his death. Inquiries witness had made indicated there were no suspicious circumstances.
    An eye-witness, Mrs. E. H. Free, of Canning Downs-road, said the horse was travelling at a walking pace when it started to plunge and rear and the cart turned over on its side down the embankment. Just previous to the accident a utility had passed the cart, but she did not see the horse shy or take fright.
    Cecil Claude Newman, master baker of Tannymorel, said he was driving a utility and passed the cart, after slowing down and giving it a wide clearance. Some distance farther on his child, who was in the utility with him, said : "Daddy, that cart's tipped over." Witness went back and found that the cart was overturned. Except for his head and shoulders, Brisbane was underneath the cart. Witness dragged him free and Brisbane said, "My horse put me over the bank and has broken my arm." Witness was satisfied that his utility had not frightened the horse.
    Evidence was also given by Mrs. Ethel Brisbane, deceased's widow.
    The inquest was closed.5
