Village Bell*Feb 1998The article reads: Sydney Mathew Andrewartha
Long time resident of Upper Beaconsfield Matt Andrewartha, aged 89 years, died at Berwick Hospital on December 7th after a short illness. He was a cabinet maker and master craftsman starting in the family business at age 14. The building facade of S. Andrewartha Pty. Ltd., 115 Church St. Richmond remains to this day.
Matt married Daisy May Martin in 1934 and they started their own furniture manufacturing business in Ivanhoe. In the mid forties they purchased 12 acres of land on Emerald Road for 25 pounds and set up a weekender, eventually building a new house with help from locals.
They purchased the Pine Grove Hotel in the mid fifties, during six o’ clock closing days, eventually subdividing the 22 acres of land from Albers Road to Lenne Street.
After leaving the Pine Grove in 1963 Matt opened a new furniture business in Camberwell, whilst Daisy ran florist and paper shops in Dandenong.
They retired in 1968 and Matt worked from their garage in Upper Beaconsfield using his master craftsman’s skills to make some of the fine furniture which adorns many of the exclusive homes in Melbourne.
Matt was also a past president of the Beaconsfield Football Club and life long supporter and coterie member of the U.B. Cricket Club. An interesting and productive man who has passed from our community.23

  • 26 May 1932, Quite a number of accidents have happened recently. Early last week Mr. E. Horrigan, employed by Mr. E. W. Harris, was engaged ploughing in the orchard when the plough struck an old stump, and the handles, rebounding, struck Mr. Horrigan in the side, fracturing two ribs and bruising the lungs. I am glad to say that he is on the mend, but it will be some weeks before he can resume work.23

Note*30 Apr 1896 Jesse Sykes, sworn and examined.
383. To the Chairman.—I am a hotelkeeper, and have traps on the road and do carting. I reside about a mile from here, and have been here about sixteen years. I favour the Oakleigh line. It would bring me within 27 miles of Melbourne. The line would come within half-a-mile of my place. I do not want a line at all as far as I am personally concerned; it is dead against my interest as it would knock me off the road, but I must be consistent, and I have always advocated that particular line. I advocated the line from Beaconsfield to Gembrook originally, and I have changed my opinion. This other line opens up a large territory that has been populated for the last 40 years ; they are principally small farmers. There is a large quantity of land under cultivation on that route. There has been no practicable survey of that route. We could get all the statistics if you promise us a survey. I have gone on horseback over the country, but have no statistics. I think it is an easy route for a railway, and will open up a large extent of country, where they have been expecting a railway for a long time.
384. To Mr. J. S. White.—When it first leaves Oakleigh it would be gradually opening out from the
main Gippsland line till it would get to be 6 or 7 miles. We keep to the back of the old township
of Narre Warren; that is 6 or 7 miles, and then when it comes to Beaconsfield there would be about 7 miles from the nearest point to the Beaconsfield railway on that side. As you strike across from Muddy Creek you branch off towards here to accommodate Upper Beaconsfield. I am carting on the roads all the time and have two licensed traps for passengers. I get a truck of stuff from Melbourne to Beaconsfield, costing 16s. 6d., and I get l2s. 6d. to cart it up. I get lOs. if I send it by bullocks. I paid £1 a ton at one time for the carting.

  • 27 Oct 1888, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 24. BERWICK. BERWICK. GREAT SUBDIVISIONAL SALE. Charming Mansion, Residential, and Building Sites, Valuable Market-garden Areas, From 2 Acres to 40 Acres Each.
    Unrivalled for Beautiful Scenery and the Bracing and Health-renewing Properties of its Atmosphere, Situated Close to the Berwick Railway Station, and Between it and the Beaconsfield Sanatorium, 27 Miles from Melbourne.
    Only One Hour's Journey by Rail.
    Special Train on Day of Sale, Leaving Prince's-bridge Station at 12.27, Returning from Berwick at 6.50 p.m.
    WM. HAMILTON and Co have received instructions from the Country Estates Company Limited to SELL by PUBLIC AUCTION on the ground, on Saturday, November 24, at three o'clock sharp,
    The celebrated BURN-BANK ESTATE, recently the property of Mr Robert Buchanan, and situated within one mile of the Berwick railway station, subivided into blocks of from 2 acres to 40 acres.
    This property is so well known as one of the finest in this celebrated district that there is little need for description, suffice it to say that almost the whole is splendid volcanic soil and beautiful undulating country. The charming and extensive views to be obtained from every part of the property have only to be seen to be pronounced unrivalled in Victoria, it is well watered by never failing creeks and springs, and has a large frontage to Cardenia Creek.
    The Berwick neighbourhood and the surrounding hills towards Beaconsfield have long been the favourite resort in summer of Melbourne residents, and every year is becoming more popular, the wonderful salubrity of the climate and the charming scenery making it a highly desirable retreat for the summer months. But owing to the fact that all the land immediately in the vicinity of Berwick itself being in the hands of large holders for very many years, purchasers have had to go back many miles to secure available blocks for building.
    This subdivision will now afford an opportunity to purchase blocks within a reasonable distance of the railway station, and it is not too much to say that never before has such a one offered to obtain such de sirable sites with all the surrounding advantages and within such easy distance of the metropolis.
    There are two homesteads on the property, one W.B., containing eight rooms and outbuildings of a substantial description and surrounded by a splendid orchard and garden, all in first class order, and the trees are in full bearing, the other stone, containing 11 rooms well and solidly built, with all the necessary outbuildings for a well conducted farm and a good orchard.
    A portion of the property is excellently adapted for market gardens, with plenty of water for irrigation purposes if required.
    The public may attend the sale with the fullest confidence that no fancy prices are put on the land, and that it will be sold in a bona-fide manner, and that no bogus buyers will be there to force legitimate purchasers.
    TERMS. The most liberal ever offered, enabling all to purchase, viz., 10 per cent cash, 10 per cent in six months from date of sale, and balance extending up to seven years on half-yearly bills, with interest added at six per cent, or all cash, at option of purchasers.
    Title Freehold. LUNCHEON PROVIDED. Free Railway Passes
    Conveyances will be in attendance on arrival of the train from Melbourne to convey purchasers to the sale.
    Purchasers wishing to inspect the property before hand will oblige by communicating with Mr. R Skews, Berwick, who will give them every attention.
    Plans and all information obtainable from Wm. Hamilton and Co , 70 Queen street, Melbourne; or R. Skews, Berwick.43

Respectfully soliciting the favour of your vote and interest, I remain, Faithfully yours, JESSEY SYKES, Craigilie, North Beaconsfield, 28th June, 1890.44
  • 30 Sep 1890, An application was made to Mr Justice Hood in the Supreme Court yesterday to oust Mr Jessey Sykes, a builder, from office as a councillor of the shire of Berwick. The application was made on behalf of Mr Sidney John Webb of Berwick, gentleman farmer.
    It was alleged that Mr Sykes since his election had become interested or concerned in certain contracts for metalling roads in the shire. In November, 1888, Mr Sykes purchased at auction a portion of what was known as the Burbank Estate. There was a quarry on this property, and Mr Sykes formed a syndicate to work this quarry. Several of the shire councillors and officers of the municipality were among the members of the syndicate. Subsequently one of the syndicate, Mr James O'Donnell, obtained a contract for road metalling and he procured the stone for the work from the quarry which was owned by the syndicate. Three other similar contracts were also given to O'Donnell, and the stone for them was also obtained at the quarry. It was said that Mr Sykes was interested or concerned in these contracts, and was disqualified from occupying a seat in the shire council. It was denied for Mr Sykes that he was interested in the contracts between O'Donnell and the municipality within the meaning of the section ot the Local Government Act. It was said that at one time a Mr W Wilson, a contractor had enjoyed the monopoly of the supply of metal, as his was the only quarry open in the district and that the syndicate was formed to purchase the other quarry in which Mr Sykes was interested in order to break up this monopoly. It was said that the syndicate sold the metal from their quarry to anyone who chose to purchase it, and that O'Donnell only purchased what quantities he wanted the same as any member of the public could do. After the case had been partly heard Mr Justice Hood directed that an inquiry should be held before a police magistrate, or some other person to be agreed upon, to determine whether Sykes was concerned in or participating in the profits of any of the contracts, and if he was not what was his connection with the contracts, if any. After the report had been given as to the result of these inquiries he would give his decision on the whole case. Mr Topp appeared for Mr Sykes , Dr Madden and Mr Isaacs for Mr S J Webb, the relator.45
  • 7 Nov 1890, SHIRE COUNCILLORS AND CONTRACTS. [part of]
    His Honour Mr Justice Hood delivered the following reserved judgment on Wednesday on an application made by Mr S J Webb to oust Mr Jesse Sykes from his position of councillor of the shire of Berwick on the ground that he was interested in certain con tracts between the shire council and J O'Donnell. Dr Madden and Mr Isaacs appeared for Mr Webb and Mr Topp and Mr Bryant for Mr Sykes.
    His HONOUR said -This was an application on rule nisi made by Mr Sydney John Webb to oust Mr Jesse Sykes from the office of councillor of the shire ot Berwick upon the ground that Mr Sykes while being and continuing a councillor "was concerned or participating in the profit in or of certain contracts" between the shire of Berwick and one James O'Donnell or in or of certain work to be done and done under the "authority of the council of the said shire." Inasmuch as the relator Mr Webb has de clined to proceed with an inquiry winch was directed at his suggestion under section 167 of the Local Government Act 1890 in order to determine the true facts of this matter, and for which this case has been standing over I have assumed all inferences and all disputed tacts against him and the circumstances of the case as I find them are as follows -Mr Sykes WHILST councillor, was a member of a syndicate or partnership of less than 20 members owning a certain quarry in the county of Mornington and from this quarry a shire contractor Mr O'Donnell with Mr Sykes's knowledge obtained stone at a fixed price some of which be afterwards supplied under contracts to the shire council and some he sold to other parties as he thought fit and beyond this Mr Sykes was in no way interested in O'Donnell's contracts or in any profit that he might make thereby. The question therefore which I have to deter mine is whether or not a shire councillor is dis qualified from continuing to hold that office under the above circumstances by reason of the provisions of section 51 of the Local Government Act 1890, The words of that section, so far as they relate to this case are as follows:— No person concerned or participating in the profit in or of any contract with any municipality or in or of any work to be done under the authority of any such council shall be capable of being or con tinuing a councillor of the municipality. It was contended on behalf of Mr Webb that a councillor who supplied goods to a shire contractor to be used in carrying out a shire contract came within the spirit of this enactment which it was said was in tended to prevent members of shire councils from being exposed to even the semblance of suspicion that their interests were in conflict with their duty and I was urged to read this section as though it ran thus - "No person concerned in any con tract or participaitng in the profit thereof shall be capable," &c. Several cases were cited to show that in this view of the section Mr Sykes would be disqualified as being "concerned in a contract." Even, however, if I were to interpret the act in the manner suggested, these authorities would not be directly in point for the words of the statutes upon which they were decided are much stronger than our act or any proposed reading of it. Hutton v Wilson (22 Q B D 744) upon which much much reliance was placed was decided upon the 38 and 39 Vic , c. 55 schedule II, v 64 which dis qualified "any member who in any manner is concerned in any bargain or contract entered into by such board or participates in the profit thereof."

  • 12 Nov 1890, S. J. WEBB V. COUNCILLOR SYKES. A reserved decision was given by Mr. Justice Hood in the Supreme Court yesterday (says Thursday's Argus), on an application on rule nisi made by Mr. S. J. Webb to oust Mr. Jesse Sykes from his office of Councillor of the Shire of Berwick. The ground on which the application was made was that Mr. Sykes, while a Councillor, was concerned or participating in the profits on certain con tracts, between the Shire of Berwick and Mr. James O'Donnell, or in certain work done by O'Donnell for the Shire Council. His Honor said he found that Mr. Sykes while a Councillor was a member of a syndicate or partnership of less than 20 members owning a certain quarry in the Shire of Mornington, and from that quarry O'Donnell, a Shire contractor, obtained stone at a fixed price; some of which he afterwards supplied to the Shire Council under contracts and some of which he sold to other parties. Beyond that Mr. Sykes was in no way interested in O'Donnell's contracts, or in any profit that he might make thereby. The ques tion which he (the judge) had therefore to determine was whether or not a Shire Councillor was disqualified under the 51st section of the Local Government Act 1890 from continuing to hold that office under such circumstances as Mr. Sykes held his office. In his opinion the section mentioned only disqualified Councillors interested in the profits or anticipated profits of Shire contracts, and did not ex tend to the bona-fide supply of goods by a Councillor in the oordinary course of business, even though such goods were to the knowledge of the Councillor to be used in fullilling a contract with the municipality, the payment for the goods not depending upon the result of the contract. As in his view Mr. Sykes had nothing to do with the profits of the con tracts. He discharged the rule with costs. Dr. Madden and Mr. Isaacs appeared for Mr. Webb, and Mr. Topp and Mr. Bryant for Mr. Sykes.47

  • 20 Jun 1894, FROM KURNALPI.
    Mr Jesse Sykes, proprietor of the Pine Grove Hotel, Upper Beaconsfield, has favored us with the following extracts from a letter received recently from his son who is in Western Australia. Mr Sykes, jun., is engaged in trading, which is apparently a good line. He writes from Kurinalpi, which is known locally as " Billey Billey." Mr Sykes arrived at Kurnalpi at a good time, and sold his stock at these rates: —Flour 1s 1b, meat 1s 9d, sugar 1s 6d, tea 3s, butter 3s 6d, rice 1s 6d, jam 1s 6d, fish 1s, 6d, oatmeal 1s 1d, milk 1s 9d, candles 2s. After selling out Mr Sykes returned to Coolgardie, carrying a cargo of swompers (i.e. swags), which were charged at the rate of nearly 20s each. He made the last 40 miles of the journey without water, and then had to pay 16s for a feed and drink for his horses. Teamsters suffer keen competition from owners of camels, and black labor cuts things up terribly. Everything is waiting for rain. It is a bit warm, says the writer, when you see a man take a mouthful of water, spit it into his hands; and wash his face in that way. The greatest water course I have seen was about twenty miles from here and only 3ft deep; it may not have held water for years. There are large pieces of quartz lying about at this spot which is about the only place on the trip a man can say, "I have been here before." The country is nearly all sandalwood scrub, and poor grass sand plains, swamps, lakes, with the travelling mostly good. I have paid 14s for one drink for the two horses, and glad to get it even at that price. There has never been a warden or a policeman here, still good order prevails. Mr. Sykes concludes by stating that there is but little fear of anything happening to the people there while the supply of salt water holds good.51

  • 20 Sep 1899, POLICE NEWS. BERWICK POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 13. Before Messrs. J. Wilson, W. Fuller, and A. S. Robertson, J's.P.
    Martin Olsen, a foreigner, was charged with having broken into the house of George Christie on the 2nd inst., and stolen a tent and a pruning scissors, of the value of 10/. George Christie stated that he left his house at Upper Beaconsfield on the date mentioned at 7.15 a.m., securely locking the door. When he returned, between 10 and 11 the same evening, he found one of the windows broken in, and the articles mentioned missing; the tent produced was his ; he knew it by the patchwork, ropes, and string upon it ; he had had it in his possession for seven years; the scissors were on his table when he left home ; they belonged to a man named Lewis, who lent them to another person, and they were left with him until the owner called for them : he found a peculiar button on the floor of his house, which he handed to Constable Steele.
    John George Lewis, of Upper Beaconsfield, organbuilder, identified the scissors as his property; he identified them by a peculiarity in the manufacture of the blades, and valued them at 5/ or 6/.
    Henri Ernest Martin, contractor, Beaconsfield, said that the prisoner called at his place at 10.20 a.m. on the the 2nd, and asked for work : he came to witness from the eastern end of the paddock and left again by the western : at that time prisoner was carrying nothing but a walking stick ; at 4.30 on the same day he saw the prisoner carrying a bundle which looked like calico tied up loosely or a tent ; prisoner was about 100 yards away at that time; prisoner told him that he had been working at Backhouse's place. Alfred Schlipalius stated that he saw prisoner near his father's place at about 2 o'clock on the 2nd; he was then going towards Christie's place, and was not carrying a swag; he saw no one else travelling on the road.
    Terence Kirwin, laborer, saw prisoner about noon on the 2nd inst; witness offered him a couple of day's work, but it was not accepted; asked prisoner where his swag was, and be replied that he did not have one; went with prisoner to Sykes' Hotel to have a drink, and returned to cricket ground, where prisoner asked for 1/ which was given him; witness noticed particularly the coat which prisoner was wearing and the buttons upon it; they had a peculiar fastening; the button produced by Christie was very similar to those on prisoner coat ; he never saw buttons like them before.
    Constable Steele, of Berwick, said that he had examined Christie's place, and found that the kitchen window which had six panes of glass in it had had five of the number broken; one of the crossbars was also broken; it must have been broken from the outside ; the hole made was large enough to admit a man; saw the prisoner in a paddock at Gembrook where he was working, and asked him where he was on the 2nd inst, and he replied "down the road at Beaconsfeld;" searched prisoner's camp and found the tent produced by Christie; asked where he got the tent, prisoner said he bought it from a Frenchman but he had no receipt; he then arrested prisoner ; on the way to the watchhouse, whilst crossing Stony Creek bridge, prisoner said that that was the place where he bought the tent from the Frenchman; on the 5th inst. Christie gave him a button; he compared it with those on prisoner's coat, and found that it was identical with them; there were three buttons missing from prisoner's coat.
    John Tyler also gave evidence that he saw the prisoner at Beaconsfield between 3 and 4 o'clock on the date mentioned, carrying a bundle which looked like a tent; prisoner dropped the bundle and came on and had a conversation with him about work.
    Prisoner was committed for trial.
    At the Criminal Court on Monday accused was found guilty, admitted six prior convictions, and was sentenced to three years' imprisonment with hard labour.55

  • 16 Oct 1913, About People.--- On Saturday Mr Jesse Sykes left Upper Beaconsfield after a long residence in that famous health resort. On account of family illness Mr Sykes found this step imperative and he sold his farm and departed for his old residence in the city area. Mr Sykes, despite his 77 years, is yet hale and hearty, and when in Dandenong on Saturday, looked remarkably well. Originally a large contractor in Hotham (a name now almost forgotten by the generality of people), Mr Sykes many years ago gave up that business to become mine host of the Pine Grove Hotel, Upper Beaconsfield. Whilst there he made many friends and was elected to the Berwick Shire council, where he was in harness for years. Latterly he has devoted his time to farming. Mr Sykes was a noted athlete, and his son Harry was captain of the Hotham football team, when the best match of the year used to be played at East Melbourne between Hotham and Geelong. We trust that Mr and Mrs Sykes will enjoy the retirement they are making in their later years.62
