    FARMING in VICTORIA

    Week ending Saturday Jan 3 1885
    A transfer of 154 Acres 3 Rood 30 Perches (CA11, Sec.1, Jallukar) from Archibald EMERSON to Arthur HOLD, Farmer, Jallukar during the week ending Saturday 3 January 1885.
    (Victoria Government Gazette - Online Archive - 1885, p195)

    Arthur Hold, Farmer, Bellellan. 2 Feb 1892. Taken from a form which Arthur filled in , detailing the improvements which he had made on his seletion.
    At this date Arthur had fenced one hundred and eighty six and a half chains of his seclection , at a cost of Five Shillings and Sixpence a chain. The total cost was Fifty Three Pounds. The cost of the posts and wire Thirty One Pounds.

    In the second year, Arthur planted one acres of Vines at a cost of Seven Pounds and Ten Shillings
    There are no entries for the third and fourth years.

    In the fifth year,he planted three acers of fruit trees at a cost of Forty Two Pounds.These were destroyed by rabbits.
    The sixth year; Three acres of vines were planted, the cost of which was again Forty Two Pounds. He also bought half a ton of hay, either for his horses or cattle. Arthur now had seven acres cultivated. Total time Seven Years .This would mean Arthur obtained this selection in 1895.

    The dwelling which Arthur had constructed, consisted of two rooms and a kitchen. It was made with weatherboards, which cost One Hundred and Thirty Pounds. The cost of the iron roof was Fifteen Pounds.

    For his water supply. he had dug two wells, one twenty feet deep, and the other eighteen feet, at a cost of Forty Six Pounds. The water was very close to the surface.
    The ringbarking and clearing of the trees was another expence. Twelve Pounds.

    Arthur and his family had only lived continuously on this land for two years. He had previously held one hundred and fifty five acres of land, which he had sold owing to the loss incurred from bush fires and rabbits.

    Much of his land was unfit for cultivation. This was typical of the land around the Stawell District. The soil was very sandy and of poor quality.

    Arthur was supposed to have all his land enclosed by the sixth year, but had not complied owing to a lack of money and time. At this time Arthur and Victorine had four children.Arthur, William Louis , Julius and Louis . Josephine arrived arrived in 1890 as well.

    Children of Arthur Hold and Victorine Metzger who attended the Pomonal Primary School which opened in 1899.

    21: Hold, Louis, May 1899 - 1902: Date of Birth: 22/2/1899
    22: Hold, Arthur, June 1899 - 1900. Date of Birth: 26/6/1885
    23: Hold, Josephine, June 1899 - 1902. Date of Birth: 5/10/1891
    24: Hold, Victorine, June 1899 - 1902: Date of Birth: 19/5/1893
    28: Hold, Julius, June 1899 - 1902: Date of Birth: 15/5/1887
    29: Hold, Alfred, Nov 1900 - 1902: Date of Birth: 19/8/1896

    The next event that is known of Arthur`s farming , is a letter he wrote to the Secretary of the Lands Department in Melbourne, dated June 27th.,1901.
    Due to his destitute circumstances, Arthur was utterly unable to pay the rents due on his selection.His health had not been good.The land was to poor to give returns. He had planted fourteen acres of fruit trees and vines, but as yet they were still young so they yielded little.
    Arthur had paid One Hundred Pounds in land rents earlier, on his three hundred and twenty acres. He asked if this could go towards making one hundred acres freehold. he wished to abandon the rest.

    Quoting Arthur directly from his letter," I am unable to work to provide for my family, but if you would kindly make me this concession, I may be able to make a living when my orchard comes into bearing. Trusting you will grant my request.
    I have the honour to be your obedient servant,
    Arthur Hold".
    It is not known if Arthur`s request was granted.

    Arthur must have been very dispondent. He was not alone though, for there were many selectors who were unable to pay their rents. Bushfires and poor soil, droughts and rabbits were all great problems in the Stawell district.

    In January 1887. William Hold, wrote to the Lands Department. Quoting from his letter, " I am sorry that I cannot comply with your wish by sending you the money at once. , for the grasshoppers destroyed the 'ole of my crops"

    Arthur and Victoria Hold are lisrted on the 1903 Electoral Roll for Victoria. They were living at Mt Mistake. Arthur Hold's occupation was labourer.

    Arthur left Victoria for Queensland with his children, but without his wife Victorine, after 1903 and before the 4th. Dec 1906, when he received a grant of land in Warra near Jandowae. This is not very far from Dalby or Toowoomba. Arthur and his family were in Dalby when he applied for the grant.

    The family travelled to Queensland by horse and wagon. They must have had many adventures. It is known a horse died on the way. It would have been a great relief to reach the end of their long journey.

    Notes:

    MOLIAGUL
    The name Moliagul is thought to derive from the Aboriginal word moliagulk meaning wooded hill, like so many other towns in the region Moliagul boomed with the discovery of gold. Gold was originally found in the area in 1852 at Queens Gully, the town developed quickly and by 1855 it was estimated to have about 16,000 people.
    February 5 1869 placed Moliagul in the history books when a Cornish miner, John Deason, was working at Bulldog Gully near Moliagul. While out with his son the wheel of the dray he was in went over a large branch causing a large cracking sound. He immediately thought the axle had broken and to lose the dray would be a disaster! Fortunately the axle was fine but looking down he noticed the ground did not look quite right. Scraping the ground aside he saw gold. Following some frenzied scraping he uncovered a huge nugget, failing to dislodge the monster with a crowbar he called upon his partner Richard Oates to help him, together they removed the huge nugget from the ground.
    The Welcome Stranger as it was called, weighed in the vicinity of 69kg and is the largest alluvial gold nugget ever found. The value by today?s standard would be between 3 and 4 million dollars.
    A monument for this historic find was placed on the site .
    Rev Dr John Flynn who founded the legendary Royal Flying Doctor Service was also born in Moliagul.

    DUNOLLY
    Situated amidst attractive bushland, 23 km north of Maryborough, Dunolly is a small town of 750 people which began as a gold mining town with a population of 45 000. Its historic main street still retains some attractive old buildings from its boom days.
    The area is now given over principally to farming though gold mining is still popular in the area.
    Re-live the gold rush fever of the 1850's using modern prospecting methods by hiring a gold detector or pan whilst enjoying the wonderful landscape that surrounds Dunolly.
    More gold nuggets were found in and around Dunolly than anywhere else in the world. A replica of the Welcome Stranger (worlds largest alluvial nugget) can be found at the Dunolly Museum, whilst a monument stands at the site of the 'big find' of the 1860's at Moliagul.
    The 'Hand of Faith' nugget was found at Kingower, 30 kms north of Dunolly in 1980. It weighed 875 troy ounces and was found using a metal detector.

    The "Welcome Stranger Nugget"
    The world's largest recorded nugget is "The Welcome Stranger". The find occurred at Black Lead (or Black Reef), Bull-dog Gully, Moliagul and was broken up on an anvil at nearby Dunolly in Victoria, Australia, to be weighed in that towns bank. The finders were John Deason and Richard Oats, the find occurred on 5th February, 1869

    Buried:
    Victorine lived in Geelong West where there was a cemetery.The reason she was interred in Geelong Eastern Cemetery was that this was the only one with Consecrated ground for Catholics burials at this time. There was a small cemetery further out with Consecrated ground, but most Catholic burials were performed at Geelong Eastern Cemetery situated in the town.

    The Geelong Eastern Burial records state Victorine lived at Hope Street , Geelong West. This is not in accord with the adress on her Death Certificate or her Probate Papers.
    She was buried with the christian name of Victoria , not Victorine and the surname Martin. She is buried alone and in an unmarked grave , which is just in from the Boundry Road side of the cemetery

    • Life Story: 05 Nov 1815 - 16 Sep 1895, Little Harrowden, England and Victoria Australia; William was born and christened in Little Harrowden, Northamptonshire, England. Christening date; 05 Nov. 1815. His father was William Hold and his mother Anne, maiden name unknown at present. It is likely the William Hold listed in the 1841 Census, aged 74 and born abt. 1787 in Wymington.Bedfordshire, Eng. is the father of William (B.1815) He is listed in the Civil Parish of Little Harrowden in the census, a Lodger with the Larum Family. He was a Widower and he was an Agri. Labourer. This William Hold died in December 1866, aged 79.His death is registered in Wellingborough William Hold married Anne Croxen, daughter of Benjamin Croxen and Anne,on Feb 25. 1848. They were married in Little Harrowden, in the Parish Church. William was a Widower, Full Age. His occupation a Labourer. Anne was a Miner (Under Age). She was a Lacemaker. Both were born in Little Harrowden. Their first child, Hannah was born in 1849 and christened on 03 Jun 1849 in Little Harrowden. Hannah was also called Mary Ann in the Shipping Records. Hannah died on 22 Mar 1851, aged 2 years. She died on the voyage to Port Adeliade on the ship Osceola. William and Ann had a child born on the voyage also. The Records of the Osceola state it was a daughter. Later records in Victoria show it was a boy named Thomas and born very close to the date of Hannah`s (Mary Ann) death. William , Ann , John and Hannah boarded the Osecola, a 769 ton, sailing ship in London, bound for South Australia. The Osceola saild from Plymouth, 26 Dec 1850 and arrived at Port Adeliade on 05 Apr 1851. Their daughter Hannah died at sea on 22 Mar 1851, and a son, Thomas was born on the voyage. His birth would have been close to Hannah`s (also called Mary Ann) death. Nothing is known of their time spent in South Australia. They left for the Goldfields of Victoria, shortly after the birth of their daughter, Mary Ann. She was born in the Adeliade District on 12 Aug 1853. William was a Gold Digger, and later called a miner. They moved around Victoria, following the Gold Rushes. These are the known places where William and Ann and their family lived in Victoria, until Ann`s death on 02 Jul 1864. Acoca, 1854; Linton near Ballarat, 1856; Green Hills, near Ballarat, 1857; Back Creek, near Amhurst which was also close to Avoca, 1859: Lamplough, near Avoca, also 1859; Inglewood 1862: Inglewood 1864. These places were very rich gold mining areas. William was still a Miner when his wife Ann died on 2 Jul 1864. He then spent more time on the gold fields around Ballarat and Wedderburn before coming to Jallukar. He was engaged in bullock driving around the gold fields when he first came to Pomonal and selected land in 1874 - 1875. 1874 HOLD William 1874 Mount William Victoria (Aus) Names in Government Gazettes, Victoria Location: Mt William County: Victoria Country: Australia Year: 1874 Given Name: William Surname: Hold Subject: Licenses Under Section 19 Approved Quality: Unchecked (Names in Government Gazettes, Victoria, Data Provider: The Genealogical Society of Victoria) Mt William At 1,167 metres, Mt William is the highest point in the Grampians National Park and provides great 360-degree views of mountain ranges and open plains. Under the Land Act of 1869-1879, William and his son William , obtained selections at Pomonal, close to Jalluker and Stawell. Arthur is not mentioned at this time. 1876 William Hold, farmer, Stawell applied for a licence on 31st Jul 1876 at Jalluker on the oppisite side of the creek to his former selection. 5 acres were under cultivition. 31 Jul 1876.

(Victoria Government Gazette - Online Archive - 1885, p195) Nothing at all is known of John, after the families arrival in South Australia. He appears to be alive when William died in 1895, as he is listed on the death certificate and his age given. William and his sons became Orchardists. They suffered tremendous hardships. The land was poor, there were droughts and dreadful Bushfires, also Rabbits eating the small fruit trees. William Hold is listed as a Rate Payer in the Parish of Jalluker in 1880. His Property was valued at Two Pounds and Ten Shillings. The selectors struggled to make a living.Much of the land was to sandy for cultivation
    • Personal: 1926, Ararat Advertiser; 1926 Ararat Advertiser Bill Hold camped his bullocks at what is now Fernside, the fine orchard of Mr Archibold, and soon after started to plant fruit trees. This was the first step in the development of the fruit growing industry on what was regarded as waste, scrub covered barren sand.
    • Personal: 24 Mar 1928, The Australasian, Melbourne, Victoria; THE POMONAL DISTRICT Pomonal enjoyed this year one of the most productive seasons in its history. Ochardists and their assistants are busily engaged gathering, grading, and packing 80,000 cases of apples for export. The work was commenced over a month ago and will continue for another six weeks at least. The apples are of splendid size and Mr. Prosser, the Agricultural department's expert, considers the quality of the fruit to be excellent. Many of the trees are so heavily laden that they will give four or five pickings, and some trees from which the largest fruit has already been gathered two or three times are still carrying average crops. The orchards lies on the eastern slopes of the Mom Cassel range of the Grampians, between Hall's Gap and Long Gully, and what was formerly waste scrub land is now one of the most noted fruit growing centres in the State. Major Mitchell, the explorer, passed through the district in 1837, and the tree that he marked close to Pomonal withstood, the ravages of bush fires until a year or two ago. In the sixties William Hold, Tom May, Peter de May, J. Smith, T. Copely, and J. -McGee, most of whom were carting timber from the mountains for fencing purposes, camped with their bollock teams at a spring near this tree, and Tom May planted the first fruit trees. The brothers Diggory and Torn Morcorn, the late H. H.Wettenhall, late Dr. Syme, and Mr. G. Barnes were early followers of his example, and for many years past the fruitgrowing industry at Pomonal has been quietly but steadily growing. Now a group of soldier settlers are assisting in the development of the locality and tobacco growing is being combined with orchard work. Orchardists are sending away over £300 worth of apples each week, and a fair amount of this produce comes through Ararat. To give better transport facilities the Ararat Shire Council spent a good deal of money last year in improving the Ararat to Pomonal road, and constructed a bridge (which was opened by Lord Somers) over the Little Wimmera at the sheep wash. Though apple culture is at present the chief activity at Pomonal, other fruits, as pears, stone fruits, lemons, persimmons, grapes, and passion fruit and chestnuts, are also grown with much success.

    • Life Story: 1815 -1895, Little Harrowden, England and Victoria Australia; William Hold and Ann Croxen William Hold was christened on the 5th. Nov. 1815 at Little Harrowden in Northamptonshire, England . Son of William Hold and Anne. No record of Anne`s birth or their marriage has been found yet. William Hold, Senior, is listed in the 1861 England Census as a Widower. Born abt. 1787, at Wymington, Bedfordshire, England, an Agricultural Labourer, and lodging with John and Mary Larum and their children. One daughter is called Mary Hold Larum so possibly they were related. John was also an Ag. Labourer. Mary Larum was a witness on William and and Ann Croxen`s marriage Certificate.Two Ann Hold`s died one in 1840 and the other in 1846. One of these could have been William`s (senior) wife. His age in the 1861 census was 74 and he died aged 79 in 1866 in Little Harrowden. William (Junior) could have had a brother called George born in Little harrowden abt. 1818. In the 1881 Census , he was a Widower, aged 63. His occupation was Agricultural Labourer. Other brothers and sisters have`nt been found yet. Anne Croxen was born in 1828 0r 1829. A daughter of Benjamin and Anne Croxen, she is listed in the 1841 England Census. Benjamin Croxen was 50 in this Census and born in Burton Latimer which is close to Little Harrowden, and an Ag. Labourer. His wife Ann was born abt. 1791 and aged 50. Ann was born in Rothwell, Northamptonshire. Their children listed are, Ann 13, Arthur 2, Benjamin 2, Hannah 8, John 21, Mary 15, and William aged 19. Mary and Ann were Lace Makers and William and John Labourers. William and Benjamin migrated to Illinois, U S A. and became farmers. They have alarge Family Tree. They can be traced in the 1880 U S A Census. In the 1861 English Census, Benjamin Croxen`s age was 73and Ann`s 68. They died between this Census and the 1871 Census as they are not listed. William Hold and Anne Croxen were married in Little Harrowden, on Feb. 25th. 1848, in the Parish Church, according to the rites of the established Church Of England. William is full age and a Widower. His occupation. Labourer and his father William Hold. Anne is underage a Lace Maker and her father Benjamin Croxen. They both signed with their mark. William`s first marriage has not been found with certianty yet, except his wife was Anne. William had one son from this marriage called John born in Little Harrowden and christened on 11 Nov. 1843. His parents William and Anne Hold. Possibly another son called George was born and Christened in Little Harrowden on Nov.8 th. 1840. A George Hold died here in 1848. His first wife could have been one of the Ann Hold`s whose deaths are mentioned above. William Hold and Ann Croxen`s first child was born in Little Harrowden in March 1849. Her birth name was Hannah nd she was christened Anna on the 3rd. of June 1849. She is later called Mary Ann. William and Ann migrated to South Australia on the Osceola, a sailing ship of 769 tons. The Osceola sailed from Plymouth, England, on the 26th. Dec. 1850 and arrived at Port Adeliade on the 5th. of April 1851. It would have been a difficult and sad voyage for them. Ann was about 6 months pregnant. Their ages are Wiliam, 35, Ann 21, John 7, and Hannah 2. Hannah also called Mary Ann on the shipping lists, died on the voyage on the 22nd.of March 1851. The records of the Osceola state that a daughter was born to Ann Hold during the voyage. Later records show it was a boy, who was named Thomas. Thomas was born very close to the date of Mary Ann`s death. No details are known of the time William and Ann spent in South Australia. They were assisted Immigrants. A daughter was born in South Australia on the 12th. Aug 1853. She was named Mary Ann. Nothing more is known until 1854. On the 21st. of Sep in that year, their son Thomas died at Avoca in Victoria. His death certificate states he was born At Sea, his age was 3 years and 6 months. He was called a Gold Diggers Child. The cause of his death was from the effects of a cold the length of which was four months. His father, William was a Gold Digger and his mother was called Hannah. William signed with his mark. Thomas was buried in the Avoca cemetery on the 30th. Sep 1854. Wiliam and Ann probably left South Australia soon after Mary Ann`s birth to join the rush for gold in Victoria. It is not known as yet wether they came overland or by ship. In the same year of Thomas` death, Mary Ann Hold died also. She died on the 19th. Dec 1854. She died of Dysentry, which lasted two weeks. Like Thomas she is called Gold Diggers Child. Willim Hold, Gold Digger signed with his mark. Mary Ann`s mother was listed as Anne. Mary Ann was buried at Avoca the same day. Her age is given s One year and Four months. William Hold was born to William and Ann, according to his buriel record in 1856 at Linton near Ballarat. His birth was not regestered. Next to be born was Arthur on the 28th. of July 1857 at Green Hills , near Avoca and Ballarat. William was now called a Miner instead of Gold digger The next date William and Ann have been found is 1859. Another sad event occurred. Sarah Hold died on the 19th. Dec.1859, aged eight months. The cause of her death was Teething and Convulsions, the duration of which was three weeks. Baby Sarah died at Lamplough, and was buried at Avoca Cemetery on the 21st. Dec. William`s occupation was miner. Sarah birth was unregestered. Her death Certificate states she was born atBack Creek, near Amherst . This was near Avoca. There was a very large Gold rush from Back Creek to Lamplough on the weekend of the 26th- 27th of Nov. 1959 On the 31st. Dec 1861 a baby girl was born to William and Ann at Inglewood, another Gold rush town. Sadly she only lived for five minutes. There is lot of information on her birth certificate. It states William and Ann were both born at Little Harrowden, Northamptonshire, England. There were two living children, which would be William and Arthur. Six children were dead. Five of these would be Hannah also called Mary Ann, Thomas, Mary Ann, Sarah and this baby who was unnamed. This leaves one more. There is no record of John, from Williams first marriage having died. From Williams (Senior) death certificate it seems he was still alive on the 15th Sep 1895 as he is listed as living but age unknown. When this little unnamed daughter was born and died William is still a Miner. She was buried on the day of her birth in Old Inglewood Cemetery. The next event known is Ann`s death, which was on the 2nd July 1864 at Inglewood. She died of Inflamation of the Womb after confinement which lasted 43 hours. This little baby must have been born dead. Ann`s maiden name was spelt Scrockson instead of Croxen, which is the correct spelling. . She was buried on the 3rd. July in Old Inglewood Cemetery. A sad end to a sad life. While in Victoria, Ann would have never had a settled life and never a house to live in. As they followed the gold rushes from one place to another they most likely would have lived in a tent. Children had to be tough to survive the living conditions on the Gold Fields. In all probability Ann and William would not have heard from their families back in Northamptonshire, as neither of them could write. William Hold died on the 15 Sep 1895 at Julluker near Stawell, where he was a Farmer. He could not have found very much gold as records show him and his Sons Arthur And William as not being able to pay their land taxes. William died of Chronic Rheumatism and Chronic Bronchitis. He was buried in the Stawell cemetery on the 17th September. He was 84 years old. His first marriage is mentioned , but it is unknown to whom he was married. As stated above John appears to still be live but his age unknown . William's death certificate also shows John was from the first marriage. So far no record for John can be found in Victoria or any other State of Australia. He could have returned to England. The records of Stawell Cemetery show William was buried in the same grave as his son William (28.1.1921),Selina Bolton, William`s wife (26.3.1899), their sons, William Edward (22.11.1939)and John (15.4.1963).

    • Personal: 1861, Bell Vue Vineyard, Concongella Creek, Stawell; Frenchman, Jean Pierre Trouette, was one who had great difficulty obtaining a block in Great Western, and it was only after much persistence, that, in about 1862, he was permitted to purchase a small allotment on the Concongella Creek. Trouette was born in 1833, in the town of Estampes, in the south of France, and was one of many Europeans attracted to the Australian gold rushes in the 1850's. Brother and sister, Emile and Marie Blampied, from a farming family, were two others drawn to the antipodes from France during the same period. They made their long journey south in 1852, when Marie was 20, and Emil 15, leaving home without informing their parents. The three Gallic fortune seekers met at Daylesford in 1856, where Jean Pieerre married Marie, and formed a mining partnership with Emil. Two years later they joined the rush to Great Western. Trouette from a wine growing area of France, began to believe that the vine could also flourish in the gravelly and sandy, undulating country about the gold field, so, although some locals called them "fools", in 1863, he and Blampied began planting vines on their plot beside the creek. The two men were actually not the first grape growers in the district. Many of the early spuatters planted vines, as well as fruit trees around their homesteads, and in 1861, at Concongella, near Stawell, another Frenchman, Louis Metzger, had also managed to secure a block of land on the Concongella Creek. He began a vineyard the same year, two years before his compatriots ten kilometres upstream. Being closer to the large population of Stawell, Metzger had an additional difficulty to combat to those faced by Trouette and Blampied; that of the townsfolk who were fond of of grapes crossing over Big Hill to raid his vines. In 1874, the two families were joined, when Emile Blampied married Louisa Metzger, the eldest daughter of Louis. (From Good Country For A Grant, A history of the Stawell Shire, by Robert Kingston. First published 1989)
    • Personal: 1861, Bell Vue Vineyard, Youlden's Bridge, Concongella Creek, Stawell; It is not generally known as it should be that Mr. Louis Metzger, of Concongella Creek, whose holding is situated near Youlden's Bridge, was the pioneer vine-planter in this district with a view to producing wine. As a Frenchman from from a province in his native country in which he had been familiar with vineyard culture he possessed exceptional knowledge on the subject. He quickly released that it would be profitable on the plot of land which he had purchased from the Government, at a price beyond its intrinsic value for ordinary cultivation. His experiment , though only on a small scale, was moderately successful and the example being followed by neighbours marked the very earliest commencement of the wine producing interest, the ultimate importance of which none can tell. Everything was against Mr. Metzger at first: he had to fence in and cultivate a piece of wilderness, beside having to endure the ravages of native birds and other bush enemies, his orchard and vineyard, even during noon-day were robbed by mischievous boys, whose drepredations it was almost impossible to repress. Still, he persevered and proved to his neighbors that the soil and climate were suitable for vine culture, and that good palatable wine could be produced as well as luscious fruit. Taking the vine growers of the district in rotation as regards their commencing to plant Messrs. Trouette and Blampied of St. Peter?s Vineyard, Great Western, and the late Mr. Joe Best, of the same locality, were the next in the order of succession. -. The late Mr Trouette and his partner Mr. Blampied , though not reaping the reward their industry and enterprise merited , did much towards establishing the reputation of Great Western wines and the same must be said for of Mr Jos. Best. - (Stawell: Past and Present by Maynard Ord, published in 1896. Reproduced in 1999 by The Stawell Historical Society).

    • Awards: 28 Aug 1869, The Australasian, Melbourne, Victoria; WIMMERA DISTRICT AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. (ABRIDGED FROM THE ARARAT AND PLEASANT CREEK ADVERTISER. AUG. 20.) The first show of the above society came off yesterday at Pleasant Creek, and was a great success. The weather was fine, and visitors poured in during the whole of the earlier part of the day, to find the arrangements for their convenience admirably well devised, considering that this is the first show of a very young society. In wines there was a very fair amount of competition; for the best white wine of any age the first prize was taken by Messrs. Bryce and Chalmers; for that of 1868 first prize, Louis Metzger, of Concongella, and Trouette and Blancpied, of the Great Western, the second prize; for that of 1869 Louis Metzger, first prize. In the red wines, for the best half dozen of any age. Trouette and Blancpied, first prize, and Mooney Brothers, of Mooney's Gap, Avoca road, second prize; for that of 1868, Messrs. Mooney Brothers, first prize; for that of 1869, Messrs. Frey and Co. first prize, and Messrs. Trouette and Blancpied, second prize. It will be seen that, with only two exceptions, the prize-takers for wines are well-known growers in this district. For the best hogshead Colonial Ale the first prize was awarded to Mr. Powell, of the Excelsior Brewery, Stawell; Mr.Crawford, of the Ararat Brewery, obtaining honourable mention. A novel exhibit was made by Mr. Samuel Wilson, of Longerenong, in the shape of ostrich feathers. We append as complete a list of prizes as our reporter was able to obtain, his efforts not being a little impeded by a want of courtesy on the part of some of the officials.

    • Fire: 13 Mar 1872, The Ballarat Star, Victoria; The fire which occurred at the homestead of Mr Louis Metzger, of Concongella Creek, has, we (Ararat Advertiser) are sorry to say, destroyed all the property possessed by the proprietor. Mr Metzger was not insured, and about £lOOO is the amount of the loss which has been sustained; only a box, some papers, a couple of chairs, and the horses were saved; The fire was caused we learn, by the, igniting of a dress, which was hanging against the wall.

    Notes:

    Pioneer farmers on small lots grew grapes: Louis F. Metzger, a Frenchman, had a small vineyard near Youlden's bridge . He sold his wine in flagons in Stawell, and Mrs. Metzger drove a cobered wagon into town with the produce.
    (From Shepherd's Gold, C.E. Sayers, 1966)

    It was in the 1850's that vines, sourced from Geelong were first planted in Great Western by Frenchman Louis Metzger. He was shortly followed by fellow immigrants Blampied and Trouette before the more famous brothers Joseph and Henry Best established vineyards and wineries on opposite sides of the main road from Melbourne to Adelaide and adjacent to Concongella Creek. Back then the road was still being used by Cobb & Co. as a stage-route, transporting gold from the area. By the turn of the century there were over 100 vignerons in the district cultivation about 2000 acres of vines.

    Louis Metzger named his vineyard Bell Vue.

    He showed his wines in the First District Agricultural Show at Stawell,on the 19 Aug 1869, and was successful . He was a Vigneron until his death.


    Department of Bas Rhine.
    The department is named ("Lower-Rhine") after the river Rhin.
    The department is made of Lower-Alsace, to which the cantons of La Petite-Pierre and Sarre-Union, former possessions of the House of Deux-Ponts and Hanau, were added in 1792
    The General Council of the department of Bas- Rhin (the former Lower Alsace), also located in Strasbourg, flies the banner of Lower Alsace.
    The General Council of Haut- Rhin (the former Upper-Alsace), located in Colmar, flies the banner of Upper-Alsace.

    Mollkirch is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Alsace in north-eastern France

    Mollkirch: the town, its history ...
    The town
    Mollkirch is a village with a population of 650 situated in the Vosges 40 kilometres to the west of Strasbourg at an altitude of 320 metres. The name Mollkirch is derived from Magel-Kirch, then Mahlkirch, the church of the river Magel. The name Mahlkirch is mentioned as early as 1220. We can deduce that a church already existed at the date.
    Mollkirch used to be based on forestry, also agricultural with a few farms. The tradition of sheep breeding still exists in the village, but these animals have been superseded by livery horses. Mollkirch has become popular for its livery stables over the last few years. There are also fruit trees (cherries, mirabelle plums, quetsches (local damsons), apples and walnuts).
    Mollkirch still has a large sawmill and a company selling forestry vehicles on its territory, both situated in the Bruche valley outside the village. In the village there is also a carpenter and a joiner.

    Mollkirch: History.
    The first signs of human life in the area are the Celtic tumuli (dating somewhere from 800BC) which are located in the Bannholz woods just next to the road from Mollkirch to Gresswiller. Excavations were carried out at the beginning of the 20th century and the meagre findings are to be found in the Historical Museum in Haguenau. To find the tumuli, stop on the level plateau as you come from Mollkirch. The tumuli are opposite a group of larches which suffered badly in the Boxing Day 1999 storm.
    Gallo-roman remains
    The most interesting gallo-roman site within easily walkable distance is the Purpurkopf which can be reached from the Fackenthal campsite. The Purpurkopf is a hilltop fortified by several stone walls with its own well. Do not forgot to visit the Pagan wall at the Mont Saint Odile.
    Mediaeval history
    The history of Mollkirch is quite rich, as it is closely linked to that of its castle, the Guirbaden, perched high on a strategic point overlooking the Magel valley. From 1225 to the French Revolution Mollkirch belonged to the Bishopric of Strasbourg.
    It was indeed in Mollkirch that the peasants revolt began. In March 1525 the inhabitants of Mollkirch rose up against the Rathsamhausen lords.
    Mollkirch is a traditionally catholic village with its church dating from 1837. The Klosterie Chapel, dating back to 1135 and a listed historical building, is to be found at the far end of Laubenheim and is by far the oldest building in the village.

    Strasbourg, France
    Strasbourg (Alsatian, Strossburi; German, Strassburg) is located in the strategical crossroad between the Romanic and Germanic areas, materialized by the Rhine river. Its Latin name, Strateburgum (the City of the Roads) emphasized its importance.
