Further to the article about Upper Beaconsfield's old orchards in the May 1988 issue, Stan & Beryl Hamilton have kindly added the following information about the orchard numbered 52 in the article.
Mr. Bunt, the Manager of Toomuc Valley orchards, bought "Springfield" in Berglund Road. He cleared it and planted apple trees in the late 1890's, and in his spare time around 1902 he built the homestead and lived there. E.C. Hamilton bought the property in 1925 and worked the orchard until his death in 1961. It was divided between two sons, E.G. Hamilton and the present resident S.P. Hamilton. E.G. Hamilton's portion was sold to Parris, the orchard was taken out, and the property sold to the present owner, S. Sheary.11

  • 23 Sep 1925, BEACONSFIELD UPPER - Mr T Bunt has disposed of his property, home, and orchard to Mr H Hamilton, of New Zealand. Mr Bunt has purchased Mr R Stirling's orchard at Officer, where he intends to build and settle.18
  • 8 Aug 1931, Settler Achieves Success With Fruit At Beaconsfield Upper. EXPORT APPLES. High Prices Revised. By "CULTUS".
    In all parts of the State the efforts of settlers have shown that while some find the greatest difficulty in acquiring knowledge concerning primary production others display aptitude which soon manifests itself and is followed by profitable results.
    A notable instance of initiative and well-directed energy is furnished by Mr E. C. Hamilton, who had no experience of the cultural side of the fruit industry when he purchased a block of 40 acres which included the "Springfield" orchard of 20 acres, at Beaconsfield Upper within 40 miles of Melbourne, from Mr R H Bunt between five and six years ago.
    Previously Mr Hamilton had been associated with general trading and commercial pursuits in different parts of the Commonwealth. Desiring a more settled occupation, he decided to engage in the production of fruit, and has become a very capable orchardist. While admitting that there was much to be learned about the treatment of trees, compara-tively little difficulty, he recently stated, had been experienced.
    Full Bearing Trees
    "Springfield" was planted 23 years ago by Mr Bunt in a well-designed manner with the trees 22 feet apart in one section and 20 in the other. Having watched the action of the trees the new owner has come to the conclusion that for the conditions in the Beaconsfield Upper locality 20 feet apart each way provides ample growing space.
    Apples only are receiving attention. Jonathans and Yates furnish the bulk of the crop, but associated with them are Statesman, Delicious, Winesap, Gravenstein, Rokewood and Granny Smith. Starting with Gravensteins, which usually become available for the Melbourne trade in the middle of January, the picking season continues until May, when the last of the Yates supply is gathered.
    With the exception of Gravensteins, all the apples produced at "Springfield" are suitable for export, and 1500 cases were sent to the British and European markets during the recent season. The fruit carried well, and realised the highest current rates.
    Comparing it with that produced in other southern localities, Mr Hamilton contends that the quality emphasises the suitableness of the hilly country over an extensive area at Beaconsfield Upper for the production of high-grade export apples.
    Emphasising that point, he stated that a consignment sent to the British markets from "Springfield" by the steamer Hobson's Bay, in the recent season, left a net return of 11/ a case for Granny Smiths and 8/ for Jonathans at the Pakenham railway station. Mr. Hamilton does not overlook the fact that the favorable exchange contributed largely to the result, but he believes that under normal financial conditions the export of apples from the Beaconsfield Upper district will give the growers satisfactory returns.
    Assisting Growth
    In the first season after purchasing and undertaking the management of "Springfield" the yield was exceptionally light, and the condition of the trees suggested that they were not receiving sufficient nourishment. Imbued with that belief, Mr Hamilton concluded that the deep granitic loam needed the stimulus of a green manure crop.
    Field peas were sown throughout the orchard at the rate of nearly two bushels an acre, early in April, 1927. A heavy application of market garden manure was put in the soil with the seed. This had such a stimulating effect that the crop attained a height of over three feet, and was too dense in places to be effectively turned under when the land was being ploughed early in spring.
    In the following season the output amounted to approximately 6000 cases, and surpassed the heaviest yield recorded by the previous owner of the orchard. Since that time, a portion of "Springfield" has been green manured each season, with beneficial results.
    It has been ascertained that the use of 1 cwt. of super an acre with the peas at seeding time stimulates the plants equally as well as market garden manure, or the other nitrogenous preparations, restrains grossness of growth, and is much cheaper.
    Investigations satisfied Mr Hamilton that it was a waste of money and effort to put any of the prepared fertilisers into the ground unless the conditions were made favorable for bacterial activity by the presence of sufficient humus or vegetable mould.
    His appreciation of that important fact revealed a special faculty for en quiry which has led to good results in regard to all the operations which make for success in the profitable production of fruit.
    Having gained an insight into the principles governing the growth and bearing propensities of apple trees, Mr Hamilton disregarded the stereotyped methods of manuring, which some of the well intentioned district growers had furnished for his guidance. A study of the trees during the period of active growth, and the crops they were carry ing, suggested the kinds of manure which were likely to be of benefit in the following season.
    Apart from the purpose it served in stimulating green manure crops, super, by itself was found to be negligible so far as assistance to the fruit trees was concerned. Rotations of the market garden preparation and the complete or chard manure, at the rate of from 6 to .., a tree, applied in the latter part of winter, and ploughed in between four and five inchs deep, have given satis factory results.
    Two years ago, tests with nitrophoska, at the rate of 3lb. a tree, proved help ful, and demonstrated the value of that kind of manure. Whether it will be unduly forcing, remains to be seen, but Mr Hamilton is of the opinion that, as a variant, in conjunction with blood and bone, sulphate of ammonia and the com plete orchard manure, nitrophoska, will show a substantial margin of profit, not withstanding the cost of £22 a ton.
    Experience has convinced Mr Hamilton that it is not advisable to prune so heavily as some of the growers consider. Provided the centres of the trees are left sufficiently open for the admission of light and air, the branches, he found, produce more evenly sized and better quality fruit by being permitted to spread within reasonable bounds.
    Pruning and Spraying
    For the regulation of the crops, spur pruning is preferred to thinning after the crops have formed. This season spur thinning has received special at tention, as there are indications of an exceptionally heavy crop. Observations have shown the beneficial effect of spraying the trees with red oil at the strength of one part to 20, soon after they have been pruned. In addition to destroying red spiders and scale parasites, the oil residue softens and improves the tex ture of the bark.
    Satisfactory results for the suppression of the black spot disease have been obtained by spraying the trees thoroughly with Bordeaux mixture, consisting of 6lb. of bluestone, 4lb. of lime, and 50 gallons of water, immediately a green tinge shows that the buds are beginning to expand.
    A second distribution is made when a tinge of pink indicates that the fruit flowers are opening. The mixture for this is used at the same strength on all varieties but Jonathans. To prevent skin russeting on the latter, the solution is weakened by the addition of 80 gallons of water instead of 50.
    Although diseases and parasites are as troublesome in the Beaconsfield Upper district as elsewhere, Mr Hamilton has been able to produce a high percentage of clean fruit. He attributes his success to close observation, and thoroughness of spraying when the pests are in the most vulnerable stages.
    Delay in attacking them, it is realised, means the passing of the opportunity to make effective clearances. In the approaching season the yield from "Springfield" is expected to total 6000 cases.19
  • 8 Feb 1934, I am glad to say that Mr. E. Hamilton, who was severely bruised and shaken when he rolled down a flight of steps, is making good progress towards recovery.20

Village Bell*Dec 1992The article reads: VALE FRANK MAXWELL HAMILTON (7.7.1916 - 30.9.1992)
“Max” was born at Christchurch, New Zealand in 1916. When he was very young his parents moved to a farm near Beaufort and Max attended school at Middle Creek. Completing his studies, Max worked on the family farm until 1939 when they moved to Upper Beaconsfield. Here he met Henrietta Holmes, whom he married in 1947 and they settled in Red Hill Road. The couple has two sons, Trevor and Phillip.
Max used to work from dawn till dusk and spent his working life caring for his land. He was a very loving and caring husband, father and later grandfather, and a very compassionate and generous man.
He was a keen sportsman playing cricket, tennis and football. One of his great loves was fishing from a boat with friends and family - as a result, many Christmas holidays were spent camping with the family at Wilson’s Promontory.
After his wife died Max found companionship with Stella, his cousin by marriage, and they have been a wonderful support for one another for the last five years. Stella found him a very caring warm person who was always willing to comfort and support other people whenever needed.
Max died suddenly and unexpectedly on his property on 30th September 1992 and will be very much missed by his family and friends.12

In the evening Mr. and Mrs. Percy Hamilton gave an open party in the Assembly Hall, which was crowded with well-wishers. Len Yates’ orchestra provided the music and a beautiful supper was served.
