  • 17 Nov 1948, TWO POPULAR members of our younger set, Miss “Tet” Holmes and Mr. Max Hamilton, were married here on November 6th. 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.
    The large crowd gave the newly-weds a great send-off for their honeymoon.8

(Mentioned) Village BellSep 1988The article reads: HISTORICAL SOCIETY
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.9 
Village Bell*Dec 1988The article reads: ORCHARD HISTORY.
The man who planted the late Ted Hamilton's orchard was Mr. R. H. BUNT, not HUNT as stated. He did it at weekends after putting in a 48 hour week at Toomuc Valley orchard, then owned by one of the Kitchen Brothers, of whom there were three.
Between them they held a chain of properties from Toomuc Valley to Berglund Road. One planted the orchard (280 acres originally), another who loved the bush untouched built "Caversham Heights" and the third built "The Towers" and established the marvellous garden which used to surround it. They also made soap.
One of the Bunt's daughters married E. W. (Bill) Harris who lived in "Gwenelg" later owned by the late Don Sutherland and worked the orchard which was there. Another married Bill Lorimer who had an orchard, in Leppitt's Road. I think their son still lives there.10

  • 12 Mar 1903, PAKENHAM, March 7. A terrible accident happened about 8 p.m. yesterday to a man named Immanuel Fritzlaff. He had been engaged erecting a large shed at Mr. Grant's orchard, North Pakenham. The shed is lit with acetylene gas. A drum of carbide containing lowt. had been obtained some days previously, and last night Mr. Grant sent one of his employees, named Bunt, to open the drum. He did not know anything about it, and asked Fritzlaff to open it for him. Fritzlaff was smoking at the time, and bent over the drum to open it, when a terrible explosion occurred. Part of the drum, as it flew up, caught the unfortunate man on the chin, and practically cut the left side of his face away, the sight of the left eye being totally destroyed.32
  • 2 Sep 1903, Two new houses have been built here recently, one a handsome brick house for Dr. Bevan, one what is known as the Big House Hill; and the other a neat wooden villa for Mr. Bunt, near the Tower. It is rumored that a well known local resident has purchased a block of land close to the Post Office, where he purposes erecting a villa in the near future. The alteration of the time of running our early morning train is meeting with a good deal of opposition here, as it is con sidered if the alteration is made that our district as a summer resort will suffer. At present the train allows the business man to reach town in time for business, but if it is altered from 7.15 to 8.15 it will mean that be will just reach town an hour too late. I believe that a petition has already been forwarded to the traffic manager asking him to allow the time to remain as at present. I am pleased to record that Mr. W. H. Goff head teacher at the local Grammar School has completely recovered from his recent indisposition, and is now able to take charge of his school again. The proposed euchre tournament which is to take place on Friday, 4th September, promises to be great success. We have had a great quantity of rain lately, and fine weather is needed now, as our orchardists are beginning to talk about spraying, and that is a job that cannot be done in wet weather.33
  • 21 Jan 1914, UPPER BEACONSFIELD. Mrs Bunt of Upper Beaconsfield, met with a painful accident last week. When driving with her husband, near their own place, the vehicle was capsized down a gully and the occupants thrown out. Both were badly bruised and Mrs Bunt had a rib broken. The jinker was badly damaged.34
  • 23 Dec 1915, BELGIAN OFFICERS ENTERTAINED. The officers and cadets from the ship L'Avenir, now berthed in Melbourne, have been the guests of Captain Rushall at Llangower, Beaconsfield, since Saturday. On Saturday the visitors were entertained in the public hall by a concert. They were most cordially welcomed by a large gather ing of residents. On Sunday afternoon a large crowd assembled at Llangower to witness the unfurling of the Belgian flag. Captain Rushall explained that the outlook on which the Belgian flag rested had been recently erected as a memento of the visits of Belgian citizens on former occasions. Monday was spent by a trip to Nobelius's nursery at Emerald with various bush picnics en route. On Tuesday the visitors were driven to Mr Bunt's orchard and entertained for the afternoon. They leave for Melbourne on Wednesday, and will then be the guests of Dr Crivelli.35
  • 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.36
  • 30 Jun 1944, Obituary: By the death on Saturday last of Mr. Richard Henry Hunt, of Officer, the district loses one of its oldest and most highly esteemed residents. He had been in ill health for some months. Mr Bunt was born in Cornwall 76 years ago and came to Australia in 1898. The following year he took up residence at Toomuc Valley. Some three years later he purchased a property at Upper Beaconsfield, where he resided for 22 years before moving to Officer. Right throughout the district he was respected and admired, for both in public and private life he was known as a man with the highest principles and at all times ready to lend a helping hand where it was most needed. By his death many have lost a true friend, and all feel deeply for his widow, and daughters —Mrs. E. W. Harris, Berwick; Mrs. W. Lorimer, Pakenham; and Mrs. A. Henry, Moira, N.S.W. The funeral took place at Berwick Cemetery on Monday, Rev. C. Jones officiating. A Masonic service was conducted by Wor. Bros. J. W. Richards and R. W. Bailey, of the Berwick Lodge.37
  • 24 Jul 1944, RICHARD HENRY BUNT, Formerly of Springfield, Upper Beaconsfield, But Late of Downend, Officer, Orchardist, Deceased. After 14 clear days Anne Elizabeth Bunt, of Downend, Officer, widow, the executrix appointed by the deceased's will, dated July 6, 1921, will APPLY to the Supreme Court for a grant of PROBATE of the said WILL.38

  • 5 Jul 1923, Dance at Upper Beaconsfield.
    At the invitation of Lt.-Col. and Mrs. G. H. Knox, a number of their friends from Upper Beaconsfield and the surrounding districts, and also Melbourne were present at the delightful dance held in the Assembly Hall, Upper Beaconsfield, on Friday evening, June 22. The guest of the evening was Miss K. Bird, cousin of the hostess, who is on a visit from England, and the dance was given in honor of her twenty-first birthday. The supper room of the hall was converted into a cosy lounge, with easy chairs, carpets, and a glowing fire. Bridge tables were provided for non-dancers. On a large table in the supper-room was arranged a buffet supper.
    The hall was gaily decked with cerise and violet streamers festooned from a centrepiece arranged with hoops of paper flowers of the same color and greenery. Tall oriental lamps and festoons of greenery, with cerise flowers, made a very effective screen round the dias, on which the musicians were seated. Mr. K. R. Pinkerton (of Berwick) was responsible for the artistic decorations of the hall. At 10 p.m. the guests retired to Salisbury House, opposite the hall, to partake of a sit-down supper.
    After midnight a large birthday cake, with twenty-one candles burning brightly on it, was carried into the hall, and cut by Miss Bird. The hostess (Mrs. G. H. Knox) wore a gracefully draped frock of apricot changeable taffeta, caught at the side with monkey fur: she carried an Early Victorian posy of autumn tints. Miss K.

(Mentioned) Village BellDec 1988The article reads: ORCHARD HISTORY.
The man who planted the late Ted Hamilton's orchard was Mr. R. H. BUNT, not HUNT as stated. He did it at weekends after putting in a 48 hour week at Toomuc Valley orchard, then owned by one of the Kitchen Brothers, of whom there were three.
Between them they held a chain of properties from Toomuc Valley to Berglund Road. One planted the orchard (280 acres originally), another who loved the bush untouched built "Caversham Heights" and the third built "The Towers" and established the marvellous garden which used to surround it. They also made soap.
One of the Bunt's daughters married E. W. (Bill) Harris who lived in "Gwenelg" later owned by the late Don Sutherland and worked the orchard which was there. Another married Bill Lorimer who had an orchard, in Leppitt's Road. I think their son still lives there.22

  • 26 May 1932, Quite a number of accidents have happened recently. Early last week Mr. E. Horrigan, employed by Mr. E. W. Harris, was engaged ploughing in the orchard when the plough struck an old stump, and the handles, rebounding, struck Mr. Horrigan in the side, fracturing two ribs and bruising the lungs. I am glad to say that he is on the mend, but it will be some weeks before he can resume work.41
