In 2015 we received a grant to purchase the MOSAiC database software, and some tuition. Since then we have added a number of BDM (Birth, Death, Marriage) records and family histories, a slow process. This data has been exported from the database then pasted into this page.

At present we have been entering data from two sources:
"Burial Records, St John's Anglican Church Cemetery, Macclesfield", a document researched by the Macclesfield History Group, finalised in 2001, and
"Macclesfield Jubilee Families Old & New 1840-1990", compiled by the Macclesfield Community Newsletter Committee.

Due to the method used to extract data from the database, it is difficult to match each item with its source on this list. We will investigate further.

In time we hope to add more data from our many sources, and images and audio.

Though not in a user-friendly format, it can be searched easily by using CTRL-F from a computer. The following process can be used in many situations, but with difficulty on tablets and phones.

Steps:
1. Place one finger on the CTRL key, then tap the "F" key. A "dialog box" should appear.
2. In the "Find" box enter a keyword, e.g. mcnamara, to find all mentions of the McNamara's.
3. Each time you click on the "Find Next" or "v" or down arrow button on the dialog box you will find a new occurence.

PS. The "Find and Replace" dialog box could appear anywhere on your screen, depending on your device and application. e.g. top left or right, bottom left or right, or a large box in the middle of the screen.

Note:
m1888 E.R Hodgkins means married to E R Hodgkins in 1888
(b c1990) means born in about (circa) 1990. Note that there are no present-day children included.

An attached PDF file 'The Macclesfield Community Newsletter, Thirteen Years On, A
retrospective View' gives a detailed history of the group from it's inception until 1990. The text
is displayed below:


THE MACCLESFIELD COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER: THIRTEEN YEARS ON - A
RETROSPECTIVE VIEW

From their publication: "Macclesfield Jubilee 1840-1990 Families Old and New"

Over the years the newsletter has had several problems, but with the support of many people
we have been able to overcome them. Our thanks must go to both the Meadows and Mount
Barker Councils, all our local Councillors, Arthur EDMONDS, David CHEEK and of course,
Patrick SECKER.

Also to the Macclesfield War Memorial Community Association, the Macclesfield Primary
School and its Headmasters, Mr STOCCO, Mr P. HARDY and Mr J. JOHNS, and to the various
local clubs and organizations within the Macclesfield Community for their generous donations.


All work for the newsletter is voluntary and it is aided financially through donations from the
public and local organizations who sponsor particular pages or advertisements. Typing and
printing is shared by the Committee and is determined at each meeting. At times we have
found it necessary to censor, alter or delete some of the business for printing to avoid public
embarrassment. The newsletter is published fortnightly on a Thursday.

The newsletter was 'Born' after Betty WHITE happened to show Rhonda DAVIS another town's
newsletter. Rhonda then approached the Macclesfield School Welfare Club with the idea and
as a consequence a sub-committee was formed. First members were Rhonda DAVIS, Erica
CALABY, Judy COOPER and Terri ANDERSON. With the help of Mr STOCCO (paper supplies
and use of the school's spirit duplicator) the first three page newsletter was published on
August 8, 1977. This was a good learning experience for Rhonda as she had never typed a
stencil before and it took her more than an hour to type the first stencil.

Here are some of the many milestones in the newsletter’s history. By November 1977 we were
using the school's ink duplicator to print the newsletter which had increased in size to 5 pages.
Number of copies being printed was 130 until October, 1978 when the number increased to
150. In December, 1978 the first cover was attached, designed by Colin ARNOLD and
sponsored firstly by the Flaxley-Macclesfield Cricket Club and then the Macclesfield Football
club; after this the newsletter absorbed the cost of the cover. With the assistance of Mr
STOCCO, the Primary School, a $400.00 grant from the Meadows Council and a $50.00 loan
from Heather DANIELS, we were able to purchase a Roneo 475 manual duplicator in October,
1979.

In February, 1980 we were informed we would not be eligible for further grants if we were still
within the education system, so, at the Welfare Club Annual General meeting we
disassociated from them and became a Committee in our own right. Further assistance from
grants, ward allowances and donations have enabled us to purchase two Adler manual

typewriters and a long carriage typewriter in June, 1980, a storage cupboard also in 1980,
and an IBM golfball electric typewriter in July, 1983, also funds for the maintenance and
servicing of equipment. In June, 1986 we were loaned a Royal Litton electric typewriter from
Redwood Trading Company which was surplus to their needs as they had updated their office
equipment. This typewriter became the property of the newsletter this year. In May, 1988 our
duplicator broke down in the middle of printing , needing major repairs (finished newsletter at
the school).

After much discussion on the feasibility of changing to photocopying, we found that it would be
too expensive. Because the school did not use their Roneo 750 and had been unable to sell
it, this was donated to the newsletter. Also donated to us has been a second hand
photocopier from Bob UPTON in 1989. However due to expensive repairs it was not suitable
for our use. Currently on loan to us from Mr David BARBER is an electric Roneo 750 and a
long carriage typewriter. After a few teething problems with the duplicator due to the
differences in ink types (cannot be mixed) we found that the drums of the two 750's were
interchangeable. This has been fortuitous as the 475 has again needed servicing and repairs.
David has also helped us with general printing tips and finding another supply of quality
paper.

Speaking of paper the newsletter has certainly been up and down in quantity and quality.
From the first 130 copy, three page newsletter in 1977 to 150 copies in October, 1978. This
increased again by June 1979 to 170 copies. By December, 1980 the number was the same
but the size had increased. A twelve page edition of 170 cost approximately $8.94 or $214.56
yearly to produce, a fourteen page edition cost $10.12 or $242.88 yearly. 1981 saw another
increase to 180 copies of the newsletter each fortnight. Stationery used for the 1980 year was
: white A4 (45), yellow (8), green (20), 6 tubes of ink, 2 boxes of stencils and 10 reams of
white foolscap. Two increases in numbers occurred in 1982, in February 190 copies were
printed and by May this moved to 200 copies per fortnight.

Quite a lot of private printing was done throughout the year as well which brought a big
increase in the amount of stationery used: white A4 (65), yellow (14), green (18), pink (9),
blue (2), 7 boxes of stencils, 10 tubes of ink, 12 boxes of staples and 2 bottles of correcting
fluid. 1983 saw another increase to 215 copies but less stationery was used as not as much
private printing was done. White A4 (41), yellow (18), green (5-1/2), pink (5-1/2), blue (5-1/2)
and 3 boxes of stencils, cost of paper was white $3.78 and coloured $4.20 per ream.
February, 1984 saw 220 being printed which did not change until June, 1985 when it went up
to 225 copies. This fell to 210 by November, 1985. In March, 1986 it again increased to 215
copies and then again fell to 205 copies in July.

In 1987 we were unable to purchase our paper through the school and we found that the
usual type of duplicating paper was not available and we had to buy mainly photocopying
paper which was not really suitable as the ink did not dry as quickly on the paper and
smudged which made reading the newsletter difficult. By 1988 the cost of a ream of white A4
was $6.75 and coloured A4 $12 a ream which meant that we could only afford to use the
colour for the covers. Numbers stabilised for a couple of years until in 1989 180 copies were
being printed. This has again increased to 191 copies in March this year, average size being
between ten and twelve pages. This has again increased in quantity and at this time 195
copies are published. In 1989 a tube of ink was $25.00. Prices of paper in 1990 have been
white A4 $12.24 or if 10 to 20 reams are ordered $9.18, coloured $13.92 and if 10 to 20 ream
are ordered $10.20. A box of 50 stencils is $32.10. The new type of paper is called Burnie
Bond.

A story or drawing competition was held for the newsletter's birthday every year between 1978
to 1987 except for the 1986 year when the town celebrated the State's 150th Jubilee year

and the first Macclesfield 'Olde Worlde Fayre‘. Winners were presented during the first few
years with either books or book vouchers and in latter years with an inscribed trophy.
Presenters have been : 1978 Mrs N. BARTRUM, 1979 Mrs H. PETERSON (President School
Welfare Club), 1980 Mr and Mrs David CHEEK (Local Councillor and wife), 1981 Mrs Kath
WARTHOLD ("On the Grapevine" writer), 1982 Mr Patrick SECKER (Local Councillor), 1983
Mr Bruce DRIVER (Principal Education Officer), 1984 Mr Colin MATCHOSS ( local identity) ,
1985 Mrs Nicki DOWNER (wife of Federal M.P.) and in 1987 were presented by the judges. All
the competitors and judges involved in the competition over the years - too numerous to
mention individually - are to be congratulated; first for the quality and originality of their entries
and second for a daunting task well done. The 12th Birthday Adult Quiz Competition, held in
1989 and judged by the Committee was won by Paul DAVIS, his prize a $10.00 food voucher
from the Macclesfield Takeaway.

Feature writers and artists have contributed greatly to our newsletter. "Gems of Macclesfield"
was the earliest item which was first done by Sally SIMMONS from 1977 to 1978 then by Terri
ANDERSON until 1980. Other pages or contributions have been the children‘s stories,
"Kiddies Korner" and lastly from 1983 to 1990 the "Children‘s Page" done by Joan
RAMSDALE. Early "Handy House Hints" were submitted by Faye DAVIS, then Doris HANDKE
and from 1981 by Betty WYATT. Who could forget our "On the Grapevine" lady Kath
WARTHOLD. The first "Grapevine" appeared on September 22, 1980 and Kath kept the
community up to date and entertained through her column; she had the ability of translating a
few given lines into something interesting and made delightful reading for us all. She was
often likened to a magician by producing a column out of nothing even when news was short
coming in. Kath never failed to produce at least one page and would often end off with an Irish
joke. Sadly Kath's last column was on July 1 1986 due to her serious illness and she passed
away in October 1986. She will always be missed.

The "Bush Telegraph" (for teenagers) was written by Jacquie IRVINE from December 6, 1982
to August 7, 1984. Also begun during this time was the "A Mac on the Track" column
submitted by the Macclesfield Football Club which first appeared on April 12, 1983. In 1986
"Mac" was joined by "A View from the Hill" and "Overheard" and these continued until the end
of the 1987 football season.

Other features have been the tennis news by "Love-All" from October 23, 1984 to March 5,
1985. "Love-All" was also known as "The Rainmaker" or alias “Uncle Roger" who had filled in
for Kath's column occasionally. "Uncle R" was also connected with the "Outreach Service"
page and would assist us whenever approached. Another periodical page has been the
"Greenfingers" column by Glen KELLY of the Macclesfield Nursery from July 1, 1986 to April,
1988. Our little snippets of history named "Glimpses of the Past" have come from Betty WHITE
since 1983. Current columns include the "Chatterbox" started in March, 1987 and "Bets Bits"
by Betty WYATT which started in March, 1988. Betty has also been our main cover designer
since March 1988. The new "Business Directory" began in June, 1989 and the "Useful
Information" page started in October, 1989. The fortnightly school news and the interesting
contributions from the children are a welcome addition. The reports received from the various
community groups and sporting bodies keep the residents up to date with community
activities.

Our first cover was drawn by Colin ARNOLD who then did them for numerous years, his
pictures being of historical interest in Macclesfield. Other artists include Rose UNWIN, Bill and
David TAYLOR and Ken BRYANT. In 1983 Grant SCHOFIELD took over as our main cover
designer until he left to take up his teaching appointment in 1987. We have also featured
some of the winners of our birthday competitions and some other designs from school
children. Various members of the committee have also "tried their hand" at designing covers
and advertisements or cartoons in the newsletter over the years. Two other people who have

assisted us by photocopying covers have been Laurie WENDLEBORN and Craig LOMMAN.

Our committee have always tried to be innovative and try new ideas, some have worked and
some not. We have started two diaries over the years, one to keep a list of the functions in
Macclesfield and one for birthdays and Anniversaries, with the public co-operating by placing
their dates in the box at the shop. The latter has worked more successfully. We have also
tried to recycle the newsletter in 1982 due to the rising costs. In 1983 the committee catered
for an auction at Lou MOREAU'S in an endeavour to raise money for the Newsletter, making a
profit of $165.24.

Credit must go to Rhonda DAVIS who instigated the newsletter and was a member of the
committee from 1977 to 1985 in varying capacities. Although not currently on the committee
Rhonda still keeps an interest by 'caretaking' all the copies of the newsletter. Mention must
also be made of Maxine TAYLOR who was our President from 1979 to 1987 and steered us
through some difficult times with printing of the newsletter being done at her home during
most of these years. Maxine always made us welcome and provided many cups of coffee, tea
and lunches. If we were running late with the printing, she also did a lot of private printing
which helped our finances considerably. Various members of the committee have 'baby sat'
pieces of our equipment or provided a meal or pavlovas while we were duplicating the
newsletter and although members have changed over the years we have enjoyed a happy
camaraderie and this shows in the achievements we have had.

In 1988 we changed our printing day from Monday to Thursday and this year the committee
divided into two groups to alleviate the work load, we also acquired a post office box (242) so
that our address would not have to be altered if the committee changed. We hope that the
Macclesfield Community Newsletter will be with you for many years to come.

The BARNETT family came to Macclesfield in 1927 and opened a bakery in the main street. In
this family were Vera, Fred, Irene, Doris, Joyce, Stella, Wally, Kevin, Geoff and Nell. Mrs
BARNETT was widowed in 1937 and the family carried on the business for many years. Fred
BARNETT, in partnership with Ken DAVIS, also ran a grocery shop, now the local mini-mart,
and later ran the business alone. Wally, Kevin and Geoff were all in the Army during World
War II and on their return married and settled elsewhere.

Of the BARNETT girls who were to marry locally, Vera married Laurie YATES and had two
daughters, Judith and Robina, and they farmed here until retiring to Milang. Doris married Bill
CALABY and settled on the farm with sons Trevor and Barry. Joyce and Murray YATES retired
from their farm in 1980 and live in Macclesfield. Joyce has two children Maureen and Terry.
Stella is married to Ernie GROSE and they and their children, Ellen and Julie live at Murray
Bridge. Nell married Bernard MURPHY on his return from the War and with sons Wayne,
Neville, Terry and Rory, farmed locally until moving to Crafers to run the Post Office there.

During their time in Macclesfield the BARNETT family were involved in all aspects of sporting
and community affairs and their descendants continue the family tradition. Nell is a Life
Member of the Macclesfield Tennis Club. Nell and Dorrie are particularly well known in the
district as entertainers and have given freely of their talents over many years.

In December 1985 Ken and Diana BARRETT moved from Mount Barker to 'Duffryn', a four
roomed, turn-of-the-century stone cottage on a sizeable block of land bordering the Angas
River in Macclesfield. Not only were they attracted by its picturesque location but also the town
was close to Diana's job, teaching at Echunga, and Ken was happy to commute to his job as
an engineer in Adelaide.

Two years later, on learning that there was going to be a BARRETT baby, they began looking
for a larger house as the small cottage would not accommodate an expanding family. Nothing
could be found to compare with 'Duffryn' so the decision was made to extend. The plan was to
increase the space without destroying the character of the original cottage.

In November 1988 Alison Claire BARRETT was born. At the same time the foundations were
poured for the extension which was to be built out of stone gathered from local properties and
quarries, to a design matching the existing building.

In the years to come the BARRETT's hope to bring up their family in Macclesfield's healthy
and relatively peaceful environment, and they take pride in preserving a small part of the local
heritage.

Among the earliest pioneers in Macclesfield were Edward and Julia BARTLETT, who, with their
family, arrived in the 1840's and lived at Shady Grove. Of their twelve children, seven married
into local families. One son, Albion, married Margaret TAYLOR and their children were
Samuel, Albion, Ernest and Leslie.

Albion's first marriage was to Bertha SMITH and his second to Evelyn Beryl WILLIAMSON. His
home was at Paris Creek where he lived for many years and where his son Norman also lived.
Leslie, who married Margaret MOUNSTEPHEN, also lived at Paris Creek where they reared
their family - Marjorie and twin sons, Jack and Edwin. Marjorie married Eric (Barney) FRY, and
their son Don married Cathy MEGSON, and they are in business at the Macclesfield Barn.

Ernest married Emily ROSS and they had four children: Hazel, Howard, Grace and Beryl.
Hazel married William (Ned) WRIGHT and their children were Mervyn, Ross, Gordon, John and
Heather. Howard was married to Stella MERRITT, their children being Daphne and Ernest.
Grace (now deceased) married Len PULLEN and they had a child named Arthur. Beryl
married Jack SLACK and their five children were Clyde, Ashley, Gracie, Susan and Kathryn.

Beryl and Jack still live in the family home, Hawthorne House, in Venables Street. The family
were all educated in Macclesfield, the younger generation attending the Mt Barker High
School. It is an interesting fact that Beryl's paternal grandfather, Albion, was the last person
from Macclesfield who was carried to the cemetery in a horse-drawn funeral coach. As he was
buried in Strathalbyn this was quite a long journey.

Another member of the BARTLETT kin was Thomas, who married Susannah (nee COLEMAN).
Some of their descendants also married into local families. Harold BARTLETT married Hazel
WYATT and they, with sons Raymond and Glen, lived in Macclesfield for many years. Well
known in 'horse circles', Harold received Life Membership of the Horse Show for his services
on the Committee and as a competitor. One of his brothers Harry and his wife Ethel (nee
HALL) and children Gwenda and Ian also lived in Macclesfield for a time, while a sister Ivy
married George DUGMORE of Paris Creek and they settled in Strathalbyn.

The BARTLETTs are yet another example of a pioneer family who still have some
descendants remaining in the district.

most of our lives. All of us, except for Paula, were born at Mount Barker. I, Carolyn, lived on
my parents farm (Ralph and Alice WILLIS) and attended the Macclesfield Primary School and
Mt Barker High School. Graham lived in Nairne. I played tennis and netball for Macclesfield
before marrying Graham in 1976.We lived at Hackham West for seven years and then
returned to Macclesfield.

Here we started our family business of making aluminium shopfronts. Our children attend the
Macclesfield Primary School and have started playing tennis. We regularly attend the Uniting
Church where the children enjoy Sunday School. We feel quite happy in the close-knit
community of Macclesfield, where everyone should be able to find a niche for themselves.

Trevor and Kay BOTTROFF with their family, Michael and Kole came to Pochin Street,
Macclesfield, from Meadows in 1985. Michael has an older brother David who lives at Murray
Bridge. We like Macclesfield because of the lovely valley in which it is built.

Trevor‘s main interests are his vegetable garden, shooting and football. Michael's hobbies are
softball and football. Kole does martial arts and loves motor bike riding. Kay has her animals
which include her Angora rabbits - the fur from these is used for spinning.

The people in Macclesfield are very friendly and helpful and some of our best friends live here.

After leaving the Adelaide Boy's High School in 1931, Lance and his parents came to live on
the dairy farm which is still managed by his son Bruce and family. Lance married Nell ALLEN in
1940 and his parents and sister (now Mrs Arthur EDMONDS) moved to Prospect. During his
lifetime many new things were introduced. A walk-through dairy, very modern for its time, was
built, the first in the district. Potato growing by irrigation was also tried and this proved
successful. The farm was burnt out in the 1939 bush fire.

During World War II Lance ran a very successful bridge club; the funds raised supplied
amenities for the boys who enlisted from the district. Many nights we had seven tables of
bridge. After the war the need for a new oval was seen; the Community Association was born
and I, (Nell), had the privilege of being its first Minute Secretary. A picnic race meeting was
held at Lashbrook to raise funds. I was in charge of catering for the expected, and realised,
large crowd and I remember well the 10 gallon milk can of stewed apples cooked and given by
Dorrie CALABY, the billy cans of custard, and the tins of pastry slices to make apple pie.
Serving the food was organised on a cafeteria style and it worked well. We also grew potatoes
on the land around the swimming pool, the proceeds going to the community.

The present day oval was built in 1949 by Lance, Arthur EDMONDS, Bill CALABY and Fred
ARNOLD, with help from others too numerous to mention. It is pleasing to say that such a
lovely oval came into being through their many weeks of dedicated work. Their farm work was
neglected and the cows milked by their families.

Sport, particularly tennis, has always featured highly in the BOWEY family. His father, John,
and Lance were Presidents of the Macclesfield Tennis Club; he and Bruce, Presidents of the
Onkaparinga Tennis Association, and Lance a committee member of the Country Carnival.
Lance was singles and doubles champion of the Adelaide Boys' High School in 1930 for which
he received a gold medal. Lance was, and Bruce is, a Life Member of the Club; Kay has been
Secretary and Treasurer for many years. Helen and Philip also played tennis and Craig and
Sharon are now fourth generation members of the Club. Bruce has been President of the
Community Association and the Recreation Committee.

I can remember the tennis courts being reconstructed three times. The courts were moved
from land behind the Church of England to the scrub below the present site. This land proved
to be too spongy for a solid foundation and they were moved up hill to their present position.
The courts were reconstructed for the third time in the late 1980's. The club house was built
by the late Laurie BROADBENT, and Laurie, Lance, Bruce and others worked long hours to
bring this project to completion. Lance, Bruce and Philip all played football for Macclesfield,
both sons being Life Members. Bruce was also captain and coach at one time. Helen was a
teacher at Macclesfield before her marriage.

I have been Secretary of the Methodist Ladies Guild, The Country Women’s Association,
Meals on Wheels, and Treasurer for the Meadows Senior Citizens.

We have seen many changes in fifty years; from kerosine lamps to electricity; hand milking to
machines; horse drawn vehicles to the present day mechanisation, and from a farming
community in total to a district where people from all walks of life have chosen to live.

Lance died in 1977 at the age of sixty-two leaving his wife Nell and daughter Helen; now Mrs
Colin HADDY and living in Western Australia. She is a graduate gemmologist of America and
Australia and has four children, Mark, Kaye, Paul and James. Bruce married Kay BORCHERS
of Balhannah; they have two children, Craig and Sharon. Philip married Lindy ADAMS of
Macclesfield; they have two children, Owen and Hannah. Both sons are farmers.

from Mylor ten years ago and commenced renovations on our lovely old house. A few years
later we established a small timber mill, in the old Cheese Factory, salvaging fire-burnt and
specialty timbers, and now specialise in a wide range of timbers - many in slab form.

We have been involved in various activities in the town over the years. At present Alexis and
Rebecca attend the playgroup and Geoff is active in the CFS.

Macclesfield is a peaceful, friendly town, relatively unspoilt by development. In the ten years
we have enjoyed living here we have seen many houses go up and many more people move
into the area, however, Macclesfield still retains its natural charm. There are many dedicated
people in the town and surrounding districts who give their efforts generously resulting in a
good community spirit.

The CALABY family originated from West Lexham, Norfolk. On the early death of her
husband, Janet CALABY became owner of the Bugle Ranges property which she ran with the
help of her two sons, Tom and John. They later took up property in Macclesfield around 1870,
and named it "Temple Bar".

John married Emma PAECH and they had eleven children, one of whom was William Isaac. His
wife Doris (nee BARNETT) still lives in the house they built when they were first married.

William and Doris had two sons, Trevor and Barry. Trevor and his wife Erica still farm beef
cattle on the original land at Macclesfield.

Trevor and Erica have four children, Prudence (Mrs FRANCIS), Caraline, Robbie and Kathryn.
They have all attended Macclesfield Primary School and then Mt Barker High School.

Trevor is a Life Member of the cricket and football clubs; Erica is a Life Member of the School
Welfare Club.

The family have been associated with cricket, football, tennis, netball, softball, volleyball and
table tennis as well as the School Welfare, the School Council and the Community
Association.

We love the fresh air and open space and have welcomed the closeness, friendship and
concern of the local community that a small town like Macclesfield has to offer.

We moved to our Macclesfield farm in 1989 having lived in the city for most of our lives. Our
move was mainly due to a desire to find a rural setting with its benefits of a healthier lifestyle
(especially for the children), a sense of community membership and for the enjoyment of
dealing with animals.

We are Brian, Jillian, Emma and David. Emma enjoys her school life at Macclesfield Primary
School and attends ballet at Nairne. David is fond of Meadows Kindergarten and loves ball
games or sport of any description. Brian and Jillian are involved musically in Adelaide and in
the Hills.

We have faced many hurdles in our first year: drenching and handling our first herd of
Hereford cattle, living without electricity, improving accommodation; but farm life has taught us
to be patient, and that the line-up of jobs rarely diminishes! Macclesfield is a beautiful corner
of the Adelaide Hills and there are many helpful, amicable neighbours.

Description: Story from MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1840-1990 FAMILIES OLD and NEW'

In our family are Andrew, Janet and David, seventeen months old. Our second child, Amy, was
born in September.

Andrew is a Senior Computer Analyst with the State Bank of South Australia and Janet runs
the small farm we have and looks after David - not a small job by any means. We have a small
flock of black sheep, a couple of horses, chooks, dogs, a cat and a couple of friendly
maggies that inhabit our place.

We moved to South Australia from Melbourne as we wanted to settle down start a family, and
be close to Janet's family in Adelaide and Littlehampton. We ended up in Macclesfield through
a series of events that made it feel right.

So we moved to Dyer Road, Macclesfield; we were married in the Uniting Church, became
regular members of the congregation, and settled down to life in the Hills.

One of the reasons we love living in Maccy is that it is so unlike living in city. You can get up in
the morning to the sunrise and fresh air, enjoy the beauty of the Hills, and see the sunset and
the stars at night. All the while there is life bursting all around, from the rosellas of all colours
to the local dogs pooing in our vegetable garden.

As we both used to live in the inner-city of Melbourne, we really appreciate the way Maccy is.
We would hate to see it grow too big and lose its small town feel and community spirit.

in Australia from Glendalough in County Clare, Ireland, Thomas and Mary COSGRAVE settled
in Paris Creek, where they reared six children, most of whom went over to Western Australia
during the gold rush era.

Thomas Jnr returned to Macclesfield where he married Catherine McNAMARA and they had

I, Rosi, first moved to Maccy about seven years ago with my parents, Lazlo and Inge NEMETH
and my sister Erika. We moved here from Coober Pedy. Quite a contrast! I left home about six
months later for a job at Port Adelaide.

I soon met my husband Paul, who was born and bred in Minlaton, Yorke Peninsula. We
bought a house in Morphett Vale; we were very happy living in suburbia. . .for a while, but we
felt boxed in, especially after growing up in the country. We lived there for two and a half
years before moving here.

When I first saw our property I turned to Paul and said, "I think you're in trouble". It was love at
first sight. He now loves it here as much as I do.

The move from Morphett Vale was very sad. Our first home together. We had done so much
to that house and it was like leaving a bit of ourselves behind. The day we moved was very
hot. We had a good cry and off we went: me in one car with four scared cats, Paul in the other
with the dog. When we arrived here we knew we had made the right decision.

This was my nineteenth move in twenty-three years and my next will be to the local cemetery. I
first fell in love with Maccy seven years ago and I'm now here with my husband who says he'd
live here in a tent if he had to.

Paul enjoys being back in a small town and I enjoy the space and the peace. My sister moved
away and has moved back again with her fiancé, Chris. We're like boomerangs!

The four of us, Paul, Erika, Chris and myself have joined the CFS. which we all enjoy. We
hope to become a part of the community and to bring our children up here.

In December 1911 a little chap weighing something over nine pounds became a new resident
of Macclesfield. He was named Angus Barry and was one of three sons of Albert and Amy
DAVIS. He also had two sisters. Angus spent his childhood on the family farm - now the
Joylinda Stud on the Bugle Road and did his schooling in Macclesfield. In 1927 he joined the
Education Department as monitor in his old school, and his first wages were eighteen
shillings and one penny ($1.81) for a fortnight. In 1929 Angus (Gus) began training at
Adelaide Teachers College and boarded at St Peters, and in 1931 was appointed as teacher
at Balumbah, sixteen miles south of Kimba. There he met his future wife, Gwen DEER, and
they were married in 1937.

For the next thirteen years Gus and Gwen lived in a little Irish house on a small acreage on
the Bugle Ranges Road, which they bought from Miss Mary MALONE. During this time their
four children were born: Barry, Ian (Jim), Christine and Joy. In 1950 Gus and Gwen moved to
the house in Venables Street which Gus‘ grandfather had built in 1909. The ROSS brothers,
John and Sam, were the builders.

Gwen has been President and Secretary Treasurer of both the School Welfare Club and the
Methodist (now Uniting) Church at various times. She was on both the Hall and CWA
committees for a number of years and always supported the town activities in every way.
Gwen later became an elder in the Uniting Church. Gus was a member of the School
Committee for fourteen years, being Secretary Treasurer for seven of those years. He was
the Treasurer of the Community Association for three years and a committee member for
many more years; President of the Agricultural Bureau for two years, and a member of the
Hall Committee for twenty years - three as President. He was also Treasurer of the Methodist
Church for many years. As a member of the Strathalbyn Show Committee since 1962 he has
been convenor of the pig section for most of that time.

It was Gus who suggested that a Macclesfield history book should be written and it was he and
Gwen who made it possible for this book *1 to be printed. He was Treasurer of that
Committee until it disbanded in 1990 when all copies of the book had been sold.

The Davis family have always enjoyed their voluntary work around the town and for years Gus
was unofficial caretaker of the Hall. In 1982 he received a Civic Award in recognition of his
services to the Macclesfield community. He and Gwen have retired to Strathalbyn but are still
warmly regarded by their many friends as a part of the 'Macclesfield Family' - and still feel
themselves to be a part of the Macclesfield community.

Our family consists of Barry, Faye (nee WITTWER), Scott and Paul. Scott and Paul are the
sixth generation of the Davis family to live in Macclesfield.

Barry was born in 1939. He began his education in 1945 at what is now the RSL Hall, and later
attended the Mt Barker High School. On leaving school he began working on his father's pig
and dairy farm, and is still working the same property today.

During the following years Barry was involved in many community activities: as a Sunday
School teacher (for twenty-one consecutive years) in the Methodist (now Uniting) Church, and
as a Youth Leader; as Scout Leader for the 1st Macclesfield Scout Troop; on the Hall
Committee for twenty-two years (President for twelve years and a committee member for ten
years); in the CFS (for more years than he can remember), and in the Table Tennis Club.
Barry began playing table tennis at the age of seventeen and has played almost continuously
ever since then - with one or two seasons off with a knee injury. He and Paul are still playing
for the Club and this year teamed up as doubles partners. The Macclesfield Table Tennis
Club went into recess for some years, but the matches continued under the banner of the
(then) Methodist Church and later reverted to a town team again. Faye and Scott have also
played some seasons.

In 1966, Barry and Faye were married at Strathalbyn, and prior to the wedding built the house
in Todd Street where they have lived for almost twenty-five years.

Scott was born in 1968 and Paul in 1973. Both were educated at the Macclesfield Primary
School and Mt Barker High School. Paul also spent some time at the Urrbrae Agricultural High
School. During these school years, Barry served on the Primary School Council, and Faye on
the Welfare Club holding positions of President, Vice-President and was also a committee
member for many years.

Scott is working at DSTO (Defence, Science and Technology Organisation) at Salisbury after
completing an Honours Degree in Computer Science at Adelaide University. Paul is working
on the family farm; is an accomplished relief milker and contract farmer, and also holds a
certificate in Artificial Insemination of Cattle.

Faye works part-time in a Strathalbyn pharmacy where she began working at the age of
fourteen - with twenty years off to raise the family. She also takes an active interest in the
family farm: doing a large portion of the book-work. The family are all active members of the
Uniting Church, each one serving in different areas of need.

The family farm now trades as Aroora Enterprises, under the control of Barry and his brother
Jim. The enterprise includes the 'Aroora Pig Studs' - Tamworth, Berkshire and Large White,
and the 'Paulanda Jersey Stud'. The 'Aroora' Pig Stud has exhibited at thirty consecutive
Adelaide Royal Shows, as well as at numerous country shows. The Stud has sold pigs to
many interstate and overseas buyers.

We have seen many changes in Macclesfield over the years, and it saddens us to see so
many farmers, particularly dairy farmers, being forced out of business with good farm land
often being sub-divided. However, it's good to see the newer businesses opening up and
providing employment for many of our local people.

We hope that Macclesfield will be retained as a small country town, where it can remain a
peaceful retreat for those who choose to live here.

grandfather, Samuel DAVIS, before he married in 1885. Samuel DAVIS first used the property
for market gardening and dairying; later he built a creamery, buying milk from the local dairy
farmers and putting it through a steam driven-separator. He then sold the cream to butter
factories in Adelaide. In the early 1900's he bought the Macclesfield Dairy Company premises,
which had originally housed the Macclesfield Brewery, and here he made his own butter and
cheese. This property was later made over to his son Herbert.

Colin's father and mother married in 1909 and continued to dairy farm on the property until
Colin and Joyce were married in 1951, when they retired to Blackwood. Colin and Joyce were
married at the Macclesfield Uniting Church where members of the DAVIS family have
worshipped since its opening in 1857 (then the Methodist Church).

Joyce is the daughter of the late Clarrie and Myrtle PASSFIELD (nee SCHMIDT), a pioneer
family after whom Schmidt Road was named. Colin and Joyce have three children: Stephen,
Gaynor and Katrina, and four grand-children; Julian, Jade, Hayden and Eben.

They have always been active members in both the Church and the community. Colin has
taught Sunday School for twenty-eight years, he was Superintendant for twenty-four years,
and has been the Curator of the Macclesfield Public Cemetery since 1948. He was appointed
a Justice of the Peace in 1967. Both Joyce and Colin have good singing voices and in the
past have frequently participated at concerts. Joyce can still yodel which is quite a unique
achievement. Both have played sport for the local clubs: Colin - football, tennis, cricket and
table tennis, and he still plays bowls for the Meadows Club; Joyce - basketball, tennis and
table tennis. She still remembers the controversy that resulted when the hemline of their
basketball uniforms was raised to knee level.

Colin and Joyce owned the well known 'Joylinda' Ayrshire Cattle Stud which they established in
1956. They proved to be very successful breeders and won numerous Show awards, but the
highlight of their career was winning first place against All Breeds for a group of three dairy
cattle at the Adelaide Royal Show in 1987. Unfortunately, because of age and health, the
dairy herd has recently been sold although some young cattle still remain. Colin is in his
eighth term as Federal President of the Ayrshire Cattle Society of Australia and has been
made an Honorary Life Member at both State and Federal levels. Colin. and Joyce both
immensely enjoy their association with the Ayrshire Society people and the trips taken to
Conferences and other functions both within Australia and overseas in recent times.

Prior to the purchase of the original property by Samuel DAVIS some members of Colin and
Joyce's families - great-grandparents - came to Macclesfield in the 1850's and descendants of
these families have always lived in the area from that time.

Jim's real name is Ian. He has lived in Macclesfield for all of his life, and worked on the family
farm with his father Gus, and his brother Barry. The farm - piggery and dairy - is now run by
Jim, Barry, Faye, and Rhonda, as 'Aroora Enterprises'. Originally it was known as A.B. and
G.O. Davis Pty Ltd.

Jim met Rhonda, a nurse from West Croydon, at the Wonderland Ballroom in Adelaide, and
they were married on June 13, 1970 at the West Croydon Baptist Church. They built their
home in Macclesfield on Cunliffe Street where they still live. They have three children; Greg
nearly nineteen, Leanne seventeen and Karyn, fourteen. All were born in the Mount Barker
Hospital, just as Jim was. Jim is heavily involved with the pig industry being President of the SA
Pig Society, and has shown Aroora pigs successfully in shows around South Australia. He
has also judged at the Royal Melbourne, Royal Sydney, and many country shows, and sold
pigs all over Australia, New Zealand and Britain.

The family are active members of the Macclesfield Uniting Church where Rhonda and Jim
have both taught in the Sunday School. Both have also been members of the Macclesfield
Primary School Welfare Club and School Council; where the children were pupils. Jim has
been on both the Community Association and Hall committees. Jim, Greg, and Leanne have
all played table tennis for the Macclesfield Club; this being Jim's thirty-second year of
participation. Karyn still plays netball for the town and Greg, Leanne and Karyn play tennis.

Rhonda was one of the foundation members of the Macclesfield Community Newsletter formed
in August 1977. Although not on the Committee now she still collects each Newsletter and has
every issue since the beginning. She was also a member of the Strathalbyn St John
Ambulance for five years. Recently she left to resume nursing in Palliative Care. Greg left
Urrbrae High School in 1988 and is now working in an intensive piggery. He boards away
during the week coming home at weekends. Leanne is in Year 12 and Karyn in Year 8.

We love Macclesfield. It is a very pretty town and very friendly. It is like a family to us.

Description: Story from 'MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1840-1990 FAMILIES OLD and NEW'

The DIXON family arrived in the Macclesfield area in the late 1850's, coming from Hyde,
Cheshire, previously Newchurch-in-Pendle, Lancashire, England. The Reverend Mark DIXON
was the fourth child of Richard and Elizabeth DIXON. When he accepted an invitation from the
Colonial Missionary Society to come to Australia the whole family decided to join him; Richard
and Elizabeth and their other children James, Margaret, Ruth, Richard, Elizabeth, Mary and
Hartley. His wife, Elizabeth, however, died just prior to their departure on the White Star in
1858.

In April 1859 the Rev DIXON purchased 40 acres - Section 2875 - from John ROBERTS for
200 pounds. He built a mud brick cottage on the land, later to be known as 'The Willows',
which was the family homestead for them all at some stage after their arrival.

James DIXON had married Sarah (nee WALKER) in Manchester in 1842. They had eleven
children, only three living to adulthood. He died in 1867 and Sarah in 1882. It is believed that
they are buried at Macclesfield. James worked as a labourer in the Macclesfield - Wistow -
Milang area.

Robert WADE, a descendant of James and Sarah, leased the Macclesfield Hotel from 1954 to
1957.

Margaret DIXON, who was partially crippled, remained unmarried. She lived at Bugle Ranges
with her father, Richard, until about 1880 and then moved to Angas Plains, Milang, near to
the, McLEAN residence where her sister Elizabeth was living. Margaret died in 1897.

In 1859 the Rev. Mark DIXON was in charge of the Mount Barker Congregational Church and
the Zion Hill/Bugle Ranges Churches. He married Helen (nee SANDISON) in 1859 and they
had eleven children. In 1860 he was in Penola and by 1862 had returned to the Mount Barker
Church. Mark moved to Victoria in 1863 but unfortunately had to resign from the Presbyterian
Church in 1879 because of ill health. He went to Queensland and died in 1884, a sad end for
a resourceful man.

Ruth DIXON married James MILLIGAN in 1860, leaving Bugle Ranges to live at Blakiston. They
had one child.

Richard DIXON had married Ann (nee BRUMMITT) in 1851 before coming to Australia. Their
daughter Mary was born at Bugle Ranges. In 1859, another child, name unknown, was born
before Richard himself died in 1861. They had left the area and unfortunately no other
records of turns family have been traced.

Elizabeth DIXON lived at Bugle Ranges until asked to look after John McLEAN's children at
Angas Plains, Milang. His wife had died in 1872. Elizabeth eventually married John McLEAN
and had three children of her own.

Mary DIXON married Isaac TURNER in 1861 and lived at Coromandel Valley. She had seven
children and died in 1890.

Hartley DIXON who became a doctor, had originally intended to join the ministry with his
brother Mark, but instead became a farmer at Bugle Ranges/Wistow in 1861. He married
Emma Ann HALL the same year. They were living in Macclesfield in 1866 where he owned a
store and became the first 'postmaster'. A Telegraph Station opened in this building which still
stands in the main street of Macclesfield.

law, Dr Frederick NIESCHE, were the foundation doctors at the Hutt Street Hospital in
Adelaide, previously known as The Clinique, Parkside. He and Emma had five children but
Emma died in 1890 and in 1892 Hartley married her sister Mary. He died in Queensland in
1901.

We, Lew and Coral, have had a long association with Macclesfield over the years being
closely associated with the late Arnold HANDKE and Doris HANDKE. Having lived in the
suburbs for all of our lives, and nearing retirement age, we found it becoming noisier, busier,
and so, more stressful. Therefore, upon reaching retirement we decided to build on our block
at Macclesfield in a more peaceful and restful environment.

We have been here in Walker Street for over three years and it has certainly lived up to our
expectations.

We have three wonderful children, all married: two daughters and one son, plus three
beautiful grandchildren - two girls who are four years old and one grandson aged three. All of
them love coming to see us in the countryside.

We are Dot and Doug DUFFIELD. After spending countless weekends searching for
somewhere to spend the latter years of our lives after our son and daughter married, we came
upon the quietness and solitude of a dear little village nestled in a very picturesque valley,
scattered with majestic gum trees, Macclesfield. We bought our 5 acres with the intention of
planting many more trees. That was eight years ago and we have now been residing here for
the past three years. We overlook O'LOUGHLIN's block, which belongs to our close
neighbours, Colin and Joyce DAVIS.

The very first morning we moved in, we were thrilled with the sight of a huge brightly coloured
rainbow with its ’pot of gold‘ somewhere close to us - what, a magnificent sight! And with the
sound of the kookaburra's laughing we were sure that we had made the right decision to move
from our home of twenty-seven years in the suburb of Seaton.

John and I (Kath), found the ideal place for our retirement at the Pines, (or Pine Lodge as our
predecessors named it) in 1976 on the Strathalbyn Road. We have loved every minute of our
fourteen years in Macclesfield.

For the first few years Church was within walking distance, and in those days we did a lot of
walking, having had kind permission from Bert PASSFIELD and his sister Beatie and also from
Herb KUCHEL to walk on their land. There was time too, in those days, to walk through Norm
YATES and Derek REAVELY's properties down to the creek for watercress and to collect
mushrooms from the paddocks.

We came to Macclesfield because we wanted to live in the country. Being able to hold a yoga
class has brought much joy to Kath through contact with many of Maccy's residents. Also
we've had, and still have, beaut neighbours and all these people are our friends.

Description: Story from 'MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1840 1940 FAMILIES OLD and NEW

William Edmonds was born in 1818 in Macken, mid Glamorgan, Wales. In 1834, aged sixteen,
he was tried at Monmouth Quarter Sessions for housebreaking and stealing sundries. His
sentence was transportation and he arrived in Van Diemen's Land in 1835. The sentence was
extended several times and he also served 'hard labour' at Port Arthur. While still a convict
he was given permission to marry Leah LEEDHAM.

Leah was born in Gloucestershire, England, in 1826, being the eldest of five children. She
arrived with her family at Port Phillip, Victoria in 1841, designated as an 'assisted migrant',
fifteen years old, and a domestic servant. The family moved to Tasmania and there she met
William.

Leah and William were married on July 23, 1844 and their first son George Benjamin was born
in 1846. In 1847 Leah and Benjamin came to South Australia. William was granted his
freedom shortly afterwards and arrived in 1848. They settled at Watergate where William
worked on Battunga Estate. He was granted a section of land at Flaxley and named it
Monmouth Farm. There were nine children - Benjamin, Leah, Francis, Charles William,
Rachel, Mary, Arthur, John and Sarah. William died, aged forty-five in 1863, after a kick from a
horse. After his death Leah kept a small shop on the verandah of her home and later opened
a shop in Macclesfield. She was able to keep the farm, and various family members worked
this as well as the shop.

One of the children, Charles William, born 1853, married Elizabeth HUNT and farmed at "The
Brooks", Macclesfield. Their children were Willie James (married May BROOKS), Tillie
(MORTON), Lydia (SCHUNKE), Louise (ELLIS), Tottie (STOKES), Daisy (DOUANCE), Edith
(LAWRIE), Jessie (YATES), and Charles George who married Eileen SHEPLEY. Charles
William died in 1928 and the Macclesfield shop was then sold.

In 1929 Charles George and Eileen began farming on Monmouth Farm at Flaxley. They had
four children, Arthur, Frank, Doris and Clarice, but, during a diptheria epidemic the two girls,
one a baby, the other a toddler, died. The boys grew up at Flaxley and worked at various jobs
around the area.

On his return from World War II Arthur married Gladys BOWEY and also lived on the farm,
and here their children, Lynette, Peter and Janine grew up.

Frank and his wife Clarice had both served in the Army and later lived in Macclesfield for a few
years where they were in business in a delicatessen and fruit shop during the 1950's. Their
children were, Margaret, Anne, Trevor and Julie.

Arthur and Gladys have now retired into Macclesfield; Janine married Jos van KAATHOVEN
and with their children, Hayley and Ryan live at Flaxley on part of the original land.

Since the early days the Edmonds family have been continuously involved in all aspects of
sporting and community affairs in Macclesfield. Arthur was a Councillor for ten years thus
following in the footsteps of his grandfather C W EDMONDS and his great-great -grandfather,
George LEEDHAM. It is also interesting to note that in later years, when lack of members
almost caused the demise of the local Community Association, Frank EDMONDS filled the role
of President and Secretary!

Description: Story from 'MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1840-1990 FAMILIES OLD and NEW

Why did we come to Macclesfield. I guess, like quite a lot of people who decide to move,
suburbia was getting too closed in; gone were the fields and paddocks that used to surround
our other home, instead it was fences, garages and more fences that were looked upon. So,
after a 'round table' conference with our family, David and I, Ann, and three sons, Mark, John
and Darren, it was decided that we 'head' for the hills, and from then on our weekends and
spare time was taken up with the “where shall we look today".

Originally the plan was to get an established home on a small acreage, but these were either
too expensive, or not really habitable without a lot of expense, therefore the next decision was
to find a piece of land and build again. After months of searching we found the land at
Macclesfield where the countryside and surrounding areas had the appeal we were looking
for. So as of January 1983 we were the owners of Lots 5A and 6A Venables Street.

Whilst the home was being built we lived in our caravan, in the Mount Barker Caravan Park.
The two older boys were working in Adelaide and eventually decided to find their own place in
town, as the time spent travelling 'upset' their social life. Finally, the youngest lad decided to
spread his wings and fly and is now living interstate, leaving just the two of us to enjoy our
lifestyle here in Macclesfield, where, we are pleased to say, we still have the room to move
and to enjoy walks around the surrounding countryside.

We have since moved into the historic old Yates property in the main street; the Cottage
being built on land originally purchased by Thomas Yates. The earliest recorded information
notes the existence of a garden here in 1843 and by 1844 of a quarter acre of garden and
seventeen cattle.

Description: Story from 'MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1849-1990 FAMILIES OLD and NEW'

In 1927 Giovanni FERRARESE, aged twenty-four, migrated to South Australia in search of
work. He had lived in the town of Fonte Alto in the province of Treviso, Italy, and left from the
port of Genoa. For three years he worked in a market garden in Uraidla and then moved to
Paris Creek to grow tobacco. After another three years he commenced work on the dairy farm
for Mr Jim WHITE at Macclesfield.

In 1935 Giovanni married his fiancée Virginia GALLIERA by proxy. At that time women were
not able to emigrate unless they were married. It was his original intention to marry within two
years, but because of the depression they had to wait for eight years. Virginia then joined her
husband and in 1938 their twin boys Eugenio and Mario were born. In 1939 Giovanni began
milking cows for J D KERSLAKE at Shady Grove Road. He later sharefarmed and eventually
bought this property.

Mario and Eugenio were educated at Saint Joseph‘s Convent Macclesfield and Strathalbyn
High School. Eugenio works at Gilbert Motors, he married Lorna CORNAGGIA of Oakbank
and settled in Strathalbyn. They have four daughters Mary, Therese, Catherine and Christine.
Mario worked as a storeman at the local Macclesfield cheese factory for twenty years while
still living on the family farm, and is now a full time dairy farmer. He has been involved in many
community activities and is Divisional Officer of St John Ambulance and a Life Member of the
Macclesfield CFS.

Virginia FERRARESE passed away in 1979 and Giovanni in 1981. They are both buried in the
Macclesfield Cemetery.

Description: Story from 'MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1840-1990 FAMILIES OLD and NEW'

Rod and Susan moved to Macclesfield initially in 1989 for a "change of pace" from working in
the Central Desert (at Ayers Rock for the past two years) but decided to make the change
permanent and bought the house on Magins Road in January 1990.

Susan was born in England, raised in California, and emigrated to Australia in 1967. She is an
anthropologist and has worked primarily in the Centre of Australia with Pitjantjatjara-speaking
people for the past twenty plus years. She works independently as a consultant now and still
spends too much time away from home, Rod and the three Scotties.

Rod has worked with Pitjantjatjara-speaking people since 1979 as a Community
Administrator/Developer. Although Rod was born in Adelaide his ancestors have a Mount
Barker district connection. His great-grandfather was a Coachman for the Barr-Smith family in
Mount Barker and lived in the Coach House that still exists on Walker Street. His son, Frances
Claude FOSTER, Rod's grandfather, was born in the Coach House around 1882 and died in
Mount Barker in 1953. Rod's father, Lionel Ronald FOSTER, came to Mount Barker in 1951
with his family (including a three year old Rod) as the owner-operator of the 4-Square Store
on Albert Road. Later Lionel joined the South Australian Police Force and served in Mount
Barker and Strathalbyn before moving to Adelaide.

Susan has a married daughter (by a former marriage) still living in Alice Springs, and Rod has
three children (by a former marriage) who live with their mother in Adelaide.

Description: Story from 'MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1840-1990 FAMILIES OLD and NEW

One of the most colourful personalities to have lived at Macclesfield was William (Billy)
FREEMAN. Billy was respected by all, and feared by some, partly because of his shocking
temper and partly because it was whispered, among the older generation, that he had been
'transported' to Australia. Most felt that this could be true and if so it must have been for some
very violent crime. However, if people of his generation did tend to recall him only because of
a very bad and ungovernable temper an examination of his life reveals Bill to have been a real
pioneer , hard working and honest in all of his dealings.

Now it is true that Billy was a convict but this record of his 'crime and punishment' taken from
the New South Wales Archives explains why he was transported:

No 1292 - 166, William FREEMAN, Factory Boy, Age 16
Tried Salisbury Assizes, April 20, 1830
Single, Education R and W
Native Place, Somersetshire
Offence, Stealing cheese
Sentence, 7 years transportation

It seems likely that his age was falsified to allow for the penalty of transportation for he was
only twelve and a half years old at the time of the trial and fourteen and a half years when he
arrived at Sydney Cove. Yet on both occasions his age was given as sixteen. (Had Billy taken
some bread to go with the cheese his punishment would probably have been even more
severe!)

On June 8, 1832 the convict ship John arrived at Sydney Cove with Billy and two hundred
other convicts aboard. Having travelled overland from New South Wales he arrived in South
Australia in 1840.

On September 15, 1840, Billy married Sarah STACEY at Trinity Church, Adelaide. Sarah was
the daughter of James and Mary STACEY and she and her family had only arrived in South
Australia on June 20 of the same year. As the STACEY's came from Stogursey in Somerset
and Billy from Freshford, Somerset, all were from the same county in England.

Billy and Sarah first lived and farmed near Belvedere and later came to Doctor's Creek near
Macclesfield. Billy and his bride went to Sandegrove(sp?) to farm and he was assisted at one
time with a loan from Edward STIRLING MLC who said of Billy 'I have known him for twenty-
three years as an honest man of good character.' Billy and Sarah had ten children who lived
beyond childhood and all contributed something to the well-being of Macclesfield at some time
or another.

During his lifetime Billy was a dairy and wheat farmer, a builder, a butcher, mail coach driver
and a mail cart driver. He is said to have driven the first mail coach from Strathalbyn to
Adelaide, described as "a three horse coach". He certainly drove the mail coach from
Strathalbyn to Yankalilla , a spring dray type of vehicle. He conducted a butcher's shop for
some time in premises just north of the Macclesfield Post Office - the building is still in use. He
also did a lot of work for the Macclesfield District Council but in 1883 declined a contract to
clean up the Macclesfield General Cemetery because the price was too low.

Billy was a very good runner and won many events at local shows and picnics. For the greater
part of his life he wore the ’old English‘ style of smock: a loose garment worn over one's
working clothes. It is said that he was one of only two or three people in Macclesfield to do so.

There seems no doubt that Billy must have been very tough as the Southern Argus reports
September 14, 1882, that "...he fell from his cart and a wheel passed over his head but he
sustained no injury".

Sarah, aged seventy-three, died March 6, 1896, leaving Billy, three sons, three daughters,
forty grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. One daughter, Rebecca, married into the
WIRTH family who later ran the famous circus. Billy, at the age of eighty-two, died on April 16,
1899, in the old Marra house on Cunliffe Street, then the home of his daughter Emma. He,
Sarah and one son, John Henry, are buried just inside the main gate of the old Church of
England Cemetery in Luck Street.

The FRY family arrived in 1848 and settled on a large acreage at Greenhills. Edward FRY
married three times and many of his descendants settled in the district. Some of the earlier
generations walked to Meadows to attend school, and the later ones walked to Macclesfield,
to school and Sunday School.

Herbert Edward (Bucketty) FRY married Violet ENGLAND and farmed on part of the original
property. Their son Eric (Barney) was born in 1913 and has many memories of earlier days.

Barney went to school at Flaxley and his first day was also his teacher's first day so they
learnt together. There were seventeen children with only one teacher in charge. The school
was held in the Flaxley Church and on Fridays the desks were taken out and pews put back in
readiness for the Sunday service. On Monday morning the pews were carted out and desks
in ready for the school week. They were long desks and seated six children.

Barney recalls sitting on the fence rails waiting for the 'Children’s Hour' to be thrown from the
service bus, and the excitement when the bundle was opened and books distributed. Barney
walked to school from Greenhills and when the main road was bituminized would sometimes
be given a ride in a truck carting metal from CALABY's quarry. Another treat was a ride on the
steam roller being used on the road, and his ambition was to drive one of these when he
grew up. His father worked on the road and among the workmen were Tom McNAMARA and
Alf MOTT.

At that time there was thick scrub around Flaxley and on Battunga. Charlie SMITH lived in a
slate roofed house where Flaxley Lodge now stands, and further along Mount Barker Road
the LOCKETTs lived in a thatched cottage.

The Post Office was built by Mr TRENTER whose two children attended the school; he also
kept a small shop and it was a rare treat to be given sixpence (5c) for a packet of biscuits.
Barney also remembers a huge trolley drawn by five horses which was used on Battunga and
it would take the workers all day to load it with sheaves of hay.

After being awarded his Qualifying Certificate in Grade Seven, Barney left school and worked
for TUCKERs for 8s (80c) for an eight hour day tending sheep and cattle. Later he worked for
J F WHITE in the orchard and vegetable garden for the same wage. During the years he also
helped on the home farm which included milking seventeen cows by hand. He eventually left
WHITEs and took over his parents' farm, cleared more land and milked more cows. They
separated the milk and fed pigs and the city firm of A W SANDFORD picked up the cream.
Later they sold milk at four pence (4c) a gallon and carted it to a pickup on the main road in a
spring-cart. He worked harvesting potatoes for seven pence (7c) for a 140 pound bag, and
among his workmates were Tom O'BRIEN, Joe WATERS, Wally WHITEHOUSE and Jack
MOTT. Jack had a Norton motorbike and Barney rode pillion to work. When they 'picked up'
for Edgar PETERSON he paid eleven pence (11c) a bag, so everyone tried to get a job there
as he was a good boss.

Barney didn't have time for any sporting activities but after he married Marjorie BARTLETT,
and their son Don was growing up, the three formed a band and played for dances around
the district. Marj played the drums, Barney an accordion and Don, saxophone or drums; they
enjoyed those years and made many friends. They still live on the farm, but "don't work so
hard now". Marj is well known for her various craft work skills and Barney enjoys a chat with
the locals at Don and Cathy's Macclesfield Barn.

On March 6, 1954 we left Hamley Bridge, where Alan worked for his father, to start out on our
own, so with Trevor (5) and David (2-1/2) we settled in Macclesfield. Gavin, a third son, was
born in 1955.

At first Alan had a milk truck and later, 1972 to 1979, a milk tanker. It left very little time to get
involved in much as it was a 365 days a year job. At first Alan managed to play golf and bowls
at Strathalbyn and later at Mount Barker. He was champion-of-champions a couple of times.

Dorothy played netball in 1953 and 1954. She iced several wedding and 21st birthday cakes
for local people.

Trevor played football and cricket. David also played football. Both have since left the district.
Gavin went into his own business and still lived in Macclesfield.

Alan had a heart attack in 1979 and Dorothy a stroke in 1981. Gavin bought and still lives in
their house and they shifted to Morphett Vale. Alan died in 1983 aged fifty-nine years.
Dorothy still lives in Morphett Vale.

Description: Story from 'MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1840-1990 FAMILIES OLD and NEW'

Veteran resident, Alfred (Talf) GOOCH, lived in Macclesfield for eighty-four years. He married
Julia Emily Ann (Annie) HOWE (nee FRY), a widow with two children, Raymond and Lillian.

Mr GOOCH, who was born in Suffolk, England, came out to Australia on the Sir William Stuart
arriving in South Australia in 1853 when he was three years old. He came to live in Strathalbyn
with his parents and one other brother, Arthur. His father, who died a few years later, was one
of the first white men to be buried in the Strathalbyn cemetery. His mother, stranded in what
was then a lonely wilderness, had to call on two big, blackfellows to lift her husband's body
into the coffin.

With his brother, Mr Alfred GOOCH served his apprenticeship as a blacksmith with his uncle.
The two brothers later commenced business at Macclesfield where they became well known
blacksmiths for many years. They recalled making the first 'velocipede' in the district, with iron
wheels and no tyres.

During the year of the Exhibition he was licensee of the 'Little Royal' Hotel in Adelaide. At that
time hotels were situated at Wistow and Bugle Ranges. Mr GOOCH remembered that Mr Ted
YATES kept the Wistow Hotel, the "Morning Star". Both did a good trade, as did the "Lord
Nelson" situated four miles from Mount Barker. He also worked as a mail driver for Mr Ben
THOMAS on the run between Mount Barker and Macclesfield.

Sixty years ago Mr GOOCH used to walk to Strathalbyn carrying his beloved violin and play for
dances. He claims to have played for the first dance and euchre held at both Strathalbyn and
Macclesfield. He and his violin were always popular and many a Scottie enjoyed dancing a
reel as he played. In fact there is a plaque made from Macclesfield marble set in the wall of
the Institute in memory of Alfred (Talf) GOOCH, which, although not dated, was donated by
the 'Old Time Dancers'.

Mr GOOCH had a retentive memory for most of the history of the district. He helped turn the
bullock that was roasted in honour of the Duke of Edinburgh in 1867. He recalls the
construction of the Strathalbyn reservoir on land then owned by Dr RANKINE and called
Blackwood Estate.

When Mr ROGERS was standing for Parliament a local wit nailed the following notice to a
prominent gum tree on Blackwood Estate at the bend of the road known as Doctor's Creek:

Mr ROGERS killed a calf
Dr BLUE he had half
Nipper STEPHENS had the head
For ringing the bell when the calf was dead.

As a member of the Manchester Unity Lodge for sixty-five years Mr GOOCH passed through
the chairs and was a Past Grand Master. He was eighty-nine years of age when he died.

These memoirs of Alfred (Talf) GOOCH were taken from local paper cuttings and submitted by
his grand-daughter, Mrs Thelma COAD, who remembers her grandfather with love and pride.

Description: Story from 'MACCLESFIELD JUBILEE 1840-1990 FAMILIES OLD and NEW'

Our family consists of Des and Barbara, Richard (5) and Alexander (2).

After eighteen years living in Montacute, we know that we could never be really happy living in
the suburbs. So after the birth of our two sons we decided to look for a home which would
accommodate all of us more satisfactorily. Not only was our home at Montacute too small, but
also the farm of 6.5 acres was becoming too hard to handle.

Macclesfield has the country life we love, and it has the many conveniences a country town
can offer. It also has a primary school just around the corner, and this is extremely handy for
our two young boys. We shifted here in January, 1990 and look forward to many happy years
ahead.
