  • 18 Feb 1885, At the Williamstown Court on Tuesday, J. Thompson, master of the barque Sir Jamsetjee Family, was summoned, at the instance of the harbour master, for neglecting to berth his vessel as ordered. Mr. Croker, who appeared for the defendant, argued that his client should have been summoned to Port Melbourne Court, that " being more easy of access " than Williamstown, the offence having taken place at the Port Melbourne town pier. To this Mr. Stewart, for the prosecutor, replied that Williamstown was nearer the residence of the defendant than Port Melbourne. In the course of the arguments it was shown that the summons had been served on defendant after his vessel had hauled out in the stream. The case was dismissed without prejudice.6
  • 9 Apr 1892, On those conditions we start for Beaconsfield. It is 17 years since I last visited the place. It was then little better than a "one horse" roadside bush place, now it can boast of possessing the fashionable country residences of the wool kings, merchant princes, bankers, stock jobbers, large practice lawyers, and elite of Toorak. Yes there are the Armytages, the Mackays, the McCutcheons, the Smiths, and the Croker here with handsome mansions, after the good old English country gentleman's style, with-well laid out exten sive grounds, carriage drives and ornamuental approaches which create admiration and at times awe in the breasts of broken down pressmen like poor Wanderer. Your Williamstown boy, Mr W. H. Croker, has 80 acres of what may be termed fairy land there. It joins Mr Smith's, the stock broker, and in my opinion Fern Tree Gully is not a patch on it. Two lady friends show me round. We make our way down the gully amongst the ferns, and boil the billy in "Croker's castle." The castle is a log hut measuring 10 x 12 feet, with a chimney big enough to lay down in. Miss S—— makes the tea, provides some excellent sandwiches, a plum cake bearing Swallow and Ariell's label, and we feast on the good things as only bush people can do after a journey. The castle was furnished with table and chairs of a rustic character last summer, but some ruffian or ruffians committed a piece of of gross vandalism not long ago in throwing the lot down the gully thereby smashing them up. I hope Mr Croker will offer a reward for information that will lead to the prosecution of the miscreants. The boarding houses in Beaconsfield are the largest and best conducted in Victoria. Hundreds of people are here accommodated during the spring and summer months. It is a favorite resort for some of our judges and their families. The sights are second to none. With the naked eye you can see ships going down the bay, Western Port, You Yang mountains, Dandenong, Cranborne, Harkaway, and other towns quite easily, and a large hall where concerts, balls, and parties are held, is attached; also a Mechanics' Institute and library. The land about Beaconsfield is not good, but will grow fruit in abundance and would prove profitable if laid out in vineyards.7

  • 30 Mar 1933, The Letters of Letty
    FROM its originator, I got the most interesting piece of news during the week. It seems at last we are to have a Greek theatre, and give al fresco performances of all the great classics of the glory that was Greece. The theatre is to be built on a mountain-side at Beaconsfield, in a grove of cypress and laurel trees.
    By now you must be wondering who is the founder of such an ambitious project. It isn't the Government, or a syndicate, or an eccentric millionaire, or even a great classical student like Gilbert Murray. No, it's none of these. It is young Critchley Parker, jun., who only left Geelong Grammar a couple of years ago. It isn't often that a modern young man with the time and the ability to create such a wonderful thing has the inclination. But Critchley Parker is the exception. All his thoughts are centred in achieving his great ambition, and the material side will commence with the start of the building in a few weeks.
    Sybil Thorndike is very thrilled and interested in the venture, and if the theatre is finished when she returns to Australia in 18 months' time, I hear she is thinking of giving a gala performance there of "The Trojan Woman."
    Here's success to the enterprise and its idealistic creator!8
  • 24 May 1933, REAL PROPERTY AND ARCHlTECTURE. Sunshine Home at Upper Beaconsfield.
    THAT a house is primarily a shelter is the guiding principle in the design of this country residence at Upper Beaconsfield.
    In developing this object the architects have striven to give adequate facilities for comfort and convenience as well as full appreciation of the sunshine.
    On an unrestricted site consisting of 80 acres of wooded, undulating country, the house sprawls across a hilltop. The open plan gives views from at least two aspects in every room and at the same time admits a maximum of sunshine in winter, a season more to be considered in this locality.
    Paved terraces opening off the living wings of the house invite a full appreciation of the surrounding panorama.
    The exterior brickwork and stucco is painted the color of silver-white eucalypts. The window frames and doors are a burnt autumn red.
    Ceilings and interior walls are ... with insulating board to assist in comforting the variations of climate.
    The service grouping has been fully considered and in spite of rambling character of the house is has been so well arranged that only one servant is required.
    Messrs Mewton and Grounds, of Queen Street, are the architects.9

Death*15 Sep 1995 St Anne's Nursing Home, 33 Wattle Road, Hawthorn, VIC, Australia. 
Village Bell*Oct 1995The article reads: CHARLES WILLIAM RAYNOR DART “DARTIE” 18.2.1902- 15.9.1995
Dartie lived in Upper Beaconsfield from 1961 until 1977, and was very a very active and loved member of our community. He was a staunch member of St. John’s Anglican Church, and was for some years organist and also a vestryman.
Dartie was born in Nelson, New Zealand. His father was an archdeacon and his mother a gentle loving family person. Having completed his tertiary education in New Zealand, he thought he might make the Church his career. With this in mind he travelled to England and studied at Lincoln College. He soon decided that this was not to be his vocation. To expand his general knowledge he went to France, and lived and worked there for some time, including a stint as a waiter.
Returning to New Zealand via Australia, a friend advised him to visit Dr. James Darling at Geelong Grammar School. Dartie thought he would like to teach at the school and applied for a job for one year. Darling wrote back saying “Take it for two years and the job is yours”. Dartie proved to be an exceptional teacher, with high principles, a wonderful sense of humour and an ability to inspire his pupils. He was a superb raconteur, with an enormous supply of amusing stories, to the delight of his students. He became housemaster of Manifold House and was loved and respected by generations of schoolboys.
His teaching role was broken in 1941, when he joined the Royal Australian Navy. He rapidly rose to the rank of Lieutenant, and was given work in the special service, often behind the lines with the Americans. After the War he returned to his teaching and married his loved wife Helen, and they were blessed with a daughter, Alison.
In 1961 the family moved to Upper Beaconsfield. Soon after this, Dartie was persuaded to continue his teaching at St. Margaret’s in Berwick, where he worked for the next ten years. He loved his garden and had several New Zealand natives in it. He enjoyed propagating plants, especially oaks which he greatly admired. Several local Gallipoli oaks were planted by Dartie.
In 1977 it was decided that they should move to Berwick. A few years later Dartie had a stroke which left him severely incapacitated. Helen was able to care for Dartie at home for some time but eventually this became impractical and he was admitted to St. Anne’s Nursing Home where he spent the last ten years of his life.8
