      Jules Metzger Metzger's birth was also registered in Maryborough in 1857

      The Maryborough field opened in 1853, although it is said that the existence of gold in this area was known from 1848. A rush began in July 1854.

      Early in 1855 there was a very large rush to the Alma, situated three and a half miles north-west of town, so named by David Beckett because the first rush there coincided with news of the Allied victory on the Crimea on 25 September 1854. Riots took place there in June 1855.

      Chinaman"s Flat Lead
      The rich leads of the Maryborough area proved problematic, because as each was traced further from its source of discovery it became progressively deeper and wetter. Horse-whims were introduced as a means of baling water from deep shafts. The Duke and Timor Company, on Chinaman's Flat Lead, "became Maryborough's greatest deep lead mine.

      Due to the massive demand for timber by the deep lead mines, both for underground timbering and fuel for the boilers, mining in the Maryborough field took a heavy toll on the surrounding forests. Most forests in the area were completely denuded by the 1870s, or at best only had a few sad trees left.

      Mining in the Maryborough region continued into the twentieth century.

      DUNOLLY.
      New Rush.-A great number of diggers are now working about two and a half miles from here, to wards Old Dunolly, near Patterson's Reef. Several large nuggets have been obtained in from three-to four feet sinking, from thirty pounds
      weight downwards, and the washing-stuff generally turns out well. Yesterday a great many holes were bottomed in the flat leading to the creek, but we did not hear of any payable. We
      have no doubt that several of the gullies about there will turn out well.
      Chinaman's Flat.-Several parties having called at our office bearing testimony to the state of this extensive rush, we hold it our duty to inform the public of the state of affairs. The fact that rich yields have been discovered is undoubtedly true, but our advice to those who are at present making a livelihood on Dunolly is to remain here, and not
      run the risk of losing the substance for a shadow.

      The next event that is known of Arthur Hold'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,

    • Information on Death Certificate
      The name given on her Death Certificate is Victorine Martin.
      Victorine died suddenly of Heart Failure at 39 Spring St., Town of Geelong West, Victoria. The occupation given for her was Charwoman. The Informant was G Wilson, Constable at Geelong West Police Satation.

      Although Victorine died suddenly at home, the Coroner decided no Inquest was necessary. He also ordered her burial. Victorine died unknown and it was not known whether she was married. It was stated that she had no issue.

      In fact, she had four surviving sons at the time of her death. They were living in Queensland. Her two daughters and one son were deceased.

      There is a note on the side which states " Believed born in Stawell".

      Victorine was buried on 9th. august 1926 in Eastern Cemetery, Geelong by a Roman Catholic Priest, in accordance with her faith.
    Buried 09 Aug 1926  Geelong Eastern Cemetery, Victoria. Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • 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

    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
