52 "My HILL family was at Greta in the 1890's and the early 1900's. George Snell HILL was a miner and his wife Mary HILL was a school teacher. She was a teacher at Greta and then she was promoted to Infants Mistress at New Lambton and, finally, at Lambton. A couple of days ago I saw her pay records for 1908 at the State Archives - she was then Infants Mistress at Lambton,
earning an annual salary of One Hundred and Eighty Pounds, paid monthly, (Fifteen Pounds a month).
Her daughter, Ida Maude HILL, was a provisional teacher at New Lambton for the first three weeks of January 1908. Her pay records then show that she went to Teacher Training. I know she trained at Sydney Teachers College and that was where she met her future husband - Robert STOVE who, later, was a teacher and, eventually, headmaster in the Newcastle area."

The new Postmaster-General, William- Guthrie Spence, has had an adventurous career since his arrival in this county when a child, of six years.Born in Eday, in the Orkney Islands,in 1846, he migrated with his familyto Victoria in 1852. and as a child assisted in sheep droving in the mallee country. At about this time the gold fever broke out, and young Spence withhis parents were attracted to the diggings around Ballarat. For many years he was engaged in mining, both alluvial and quartz. His connection with unionism dates back to 1878, when he organised the first miners' association in Viotoria. In the early eighties Mr. Spence visited the other States. In 1898, Mr. Spence entered the New South Wales Parliament as the member for Cobar, and on the Initiation, of Federation was elected as the representative for the-Darling division in the House of Representatives, a seat which he has held ever since.

Mr. Robert Flett, an old and respected resident of Port Pirie, received on December 8 news that his son, Corporal Roy Flett, had been killed in action on November 5. Corporal Flett, who had been residing with hia parents in Unley Park, was 26 years of age. He enlisted in August, 1915, and left Australia in January last. He was wounded in August, but returned to the firing line and fought beside many of his former Port Pirie friends, who in their letters spoke in high terms of his soldierly qualities. He was a cabinetmaker, and when at Port Pirie worked for Mr. W. J. Pimlett, about half of whose staff have left for the front. Afterwards he followed his trade at the Adelaide Joinery Works. He was of good physique and a fine type of soldier. His kindly and genial temperament endeared him to all with whom he came into contact. He was an enthusiastic lacrosse player, and when a member of the Port Pirie club, most of the members of which have joined the colors, he was chosen as a representative for South Australia against Victoria. After going to Adelaide he played for the Sturt club and was again selected for inter-State lacrosse matches." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 23 Dec 1916 (

It comprises Uig and Carloway, with the islands of Vinavore, Big and Little Bernara, and Pabbay, besides many other islets in Loch Roag. It extends in length about 22.5 miles from N.E. to S.W., with an extreme breadth of 17.25 miles. The district of Uig proper is bounded on the N. by the Ocean and Carloway, on the E. by Stornoway, on the S. by Harris and Loch Reasort, and on the W. by the Atlantic Ocean. The surface chiefly consists of low, barren, heathy hills and flat moors, watered by numerous small lakes, the principal of which is Loch Langavat, 95 miles in length. The coast, which is about 60 miles in extent, is flat and indented with bays abounding in cod, ling, dog-fish, coal-fish, and lobsters, for which last it is much frequented by English vessels. The village of Uig stands on Uig Bay, between lochs Reasort and Shawbost. Many of the inhabitants of the neighbouring hamlets and villages are employed in the fisheries. In the vicinity is Calarnish Druid temple, consisting of a circle of 12 stones, 7 feet in height, and a centre one of 13 feet, with three exterior lines of 3 stones each, and to the N. a double line of 6 each for the entrance. Traces of a nunnery exist at Melista, and of a circular fort at Carlaway, with a wall of 30 feet in height. This parish is in the presbytery of Lewis and synod of Glenelg, and in the patronage of the crown. The stipend of the minister is about onehundred and fiftyeight pounds.

The Sydney Morning Herald Friday 15th October 1875, TERRIBLE DEATH.--On the 29th. September, a fatal accident happed to a man named James Miller, in the employ of Mr. D. Brady, at Lochiel. The Kapunda Herald states " that Miller, who was about 50 years of age was engaged carting stone from a quarry on a hill-side with a waggon and four horses, and in starting with his load, the unfortunate man leading the near side shaft horse by the head, walking backwards, the shaft struck him on the breast and knocked him down, both wheels passing over his body. A son of Mr. Brady was close by, and ran to his assistance, but the poor fellow was beyond human aid ; he breathed once, but never spoke or moved. He was dead when picked up by his fellow workmen the next minute. His body must have been frightfully crushed, as there were about three tons of stone on the waggon. Mr. M'Namara, J.P., after a careful consideration of the circumstances, considered an inquest unnecessary and gave the customary certificate for burial. The deceased leaves a wife and four children in destitute circumstances."

Ron Miller, The history of Cheshunt and the Cheshunt-Degamero Primary School No. 2553, c1983
Cheshunt is a rural village and district upstream along the King River in north-east Victoria. It is 50 km south of Wangaratta and the district extends along several tributaries of the King River. There is State Forest west of Cheshunt, the Black Range to the east and the Wabonga Plateau and Alpine National Park to the south. Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, was the birthplace of an early district settler, Arthur Smith.
Plentiful rain and fertile river soils made the area suitable for a range of crops. Tobacco growing has been a staple crop, and some families are of Italian or Spanish origin. There are also orchards and vineyards, along with more conventional pastoral properties.
There have been schools at Cheshunt and Cheshunt South. Both have been closed, Cheshunt in 1992. Cheshunt has a recreation reserve, a hall (1895), a store and a post office.

Launceston Examiner Tuesday 21st October 1884; ANOTHER HARD CASE. It will be remembered that about 12 months ago, a man named Robert Miller was employed by the Launceston Corporation, working at the Margaret-street sewer.' The wet and exposure so affected his health that a severe cold setled on his spine, eventually affecting his brain, so that a few weeks after he was first laid up, it was found necessary to send him to the New Norfolk Asylum. The wife was left with five children, all girls but one, and only the eldest girl being capable of earning anything. The Council declined to do anything for the family, who have since been maintained by the labour of the mother assisted by the kindness of friends. Miller's condition gradually became worse, and last Saturday he died, his body being brought up to town on Sunday and interred in the Presbyterian cemetery.

It is interesting that she includes her father's name and his place of birth in her wedding notice. Someone must have passed on the information when she was a child and she remembered. It seems her own mother is probably dead at the time of the marriage.

Herald Melbourne Monday 11th July 1870 A Large Reward.- The Ballarat Star of to-day contains an advertising announcement of a reward of £10,000 for the discovery of the agent who inserted certain advertisements in the newspapers some years back respecting one George Huxton Muir, of Kirkwall, Orkney. We are informed that the person offering this large reward claims to be the veritable George Huxton Muir referred to in those old advertisements, and that he further claims to be heir to large estates both in Italy and Scotland, and also to very large accumulations of money, and what is more wonderful still, to a dukedom in Italy and a baronetcy in Great Britain. The claim is made through his mother, whose maiden name was Huxton. The matter seems to be enveloped in some little obscurity, in consequence, as Muir asserts, of his long residence (about twenty-five years) in the colonies, having left Kirkwall when he was sixteen years of age, and from his whereabouts being unknown to his friends at home. It seems, however, that Muir was
long resident and well known in the Smythesdale district, carrying on business as a storekeeper there, and was much respected as a shrewd and honorable man. In 1863-4 he went to Queensland, and whilst there heard from different quarters that he had been advertised for in the Melbourne papers. It seems that he was so advertised for by the testimony of several of his acquaintances who saw the advertisements.
