    UPPER BEACONSFIELD, Wednesday. -A roaring inferno of fire, in which flames readied a height of 60ft., confronted fire-fighters at a break between the properties of Mrs. I. S. Norbury and the Rev. T. Howard Smith at Upper Beaconsfield to-day.
    The whole Upper Beaconsfield ridge was ablaze, but, after an exhausting fight, 60 members of the Upper Beaconsfield bush fire brigade saved the properties which were in danger.
    Fanned by a northerly wind, the fire, which had been under control on Tuesday night, broke out afresh this morning, and within a few hours huge clouds of smoke reduced the range of visibility in some parts of the district to 10 yards.
    The properties which were in the greatest danger were those of Mrs. Norbury, Messrs. C. A. Berglund, E. Wintle, H. Albers, and Vickers. Messrs. Wintle and Vickers lost a considerable area of grass, but all the properties were safe late this afternoon.16

  • 19 Dec 1903, AN OLD-TIME INSOLVENCY. RELEASE OF ESTATE.
    Memories of the land boom were brought up in the Insolvency Court yesterday, when application was made for the release of the estate of Frederick Illingworth.
    The insolvent's estate was compulsorily sequestrated on May 21, 1891, and in the schedule which was filed at the court on Wednesday insolvent gave as the causes of his insolvency "sudden depreciation in the value of real estate, inability to sell it, and pressure of a creditor." He further explained: - I left Melbourne in March, 1890, for London, with the object of selling my interests in real estate there, but the land boom burst in Melbourne on the eve of my execting a sale, and, having no money or business to fall back on, I returned to Western Australia to earn a living and money to pay my creditors, and I have not since the year 1890 been in the state of Victoria till December 15, 1903, and until the present time I have not had the means and ability to come to Melbourne to file my schedule. Such delay was not for the purpose of defeating or delaying my creditors."22
  • 29 Dec 1927, MARRIAGES. GLADISH—BLUMFIELD.—[Golden Wedding.]—On the 29th December, 1877, by the late Frederick Illingworth, preacher Church of Christ, Frank Gladish, late of England to Sarah J Blumfield, daughter of the late W and A Blumfield, late of England (Present address, The Lodge, Riversdale road, Surrey Hills, Victoria.)23

Australian Dictionary of Biography

ILLINGWORTH, FREDERICK (1844-1908), speculator and politician, was born on 24 September 1844 at Horton, Yorkshire, England, son of James Illingworth, woolcomber, and his wife Sarah, née Irving. He migrated to Victoria with his parents in 1848 and as a youth worked in the ironmongery trade in Melbourne and Brighton. There he developed what became a lifelong advocacy of the temperance movement. He married Elizabeth Tarry at Carlton on 5 September 1867; they had one son and one daughter. In the late 1870s he became an estate agent in partnership with John R. Hoskins, a former mayor of Bendigo, and prospered enough to acquire a pastoral property at Yalook. Bad seasons ruined him and in 1883 he opened an ironmongery business, specializing in electroplated goods, in Melbourne.
In 1888, with support from his fellow teetotaller James Munro, Illingworth became a founder and major shareholder in the Centennial Land Bank. Having purchased suburban land at inflated prices and relied on further inflation to maintain profits, the bank was in serious difficulties when land values collapsed at the end of 1890. Illingworth had also been indulging in heavy private borrowing for speculation and by early 1891 his personal liabilities were estimated at £283,000. A member of the Legislative Council for Northern Province from July 1889, he obtained parliamentary leave of absence for a business trip to Europe in March 1890. On his return in November he settled in Western Australia as a land and estate agent; his council seat was declared vacant in 1891. The liquidation of his assets produced £600 to meet debts of nearly £300,000 but it was not until 1897 that a Melbourne court order resulted in his appearance before the Western Australian Bankruptcy Court. In December 1903 his remaining creditors agreed to release him from sequestration. None of this prevented him from pursuing an active and prominent career in Western Australian politics.
Making his way to the Murchison goldfield, Illingworth invested in several mines, including the Rose Pearl at Mount Magnet. On 18 November 1896 in Adelaide he married Jane McGregor; they had no children. In July 1894 he had been elected to the Legislative Assembly as member for Nannine. When the constituency was subdivided he represented Central Murchison from June 1897 and Cue from April 1901. He soon made a reputation as a tenacious if sometimes prolix critic of Sir John Forrest's government, specializing in financial and constitutional questions. When George Leake resigned his seat in parliament in August 1900 Illingworth replaced him as leader of the Opposition and almost immediately moved a motion of no confidence in Forrest's government. It was lost by sixteen votes to twenty-two, but was by far the strongest challenge to Forrest until then.
Following Forrest's departure to Federal politics his party lost office at the 1901 election. Illingworth was invited to form a ministry but stood down in favour of Leake, serving in his two cabinets from May to November 1901 and December 1901 to June 1902 as colonial treasurer and colonial secretary. His only budget, an optimistic performance, summarized in the slogan, 'Go forward; go on and possess the land', earned praise from his old opponent Forrest. At odds with his colleagues over railway administration Illingworth was passed over for the acting premiership when Leake fell fatally ill in June 1902. The new premier (Sir) Walter James excluded him from the ministry. In December 1903 he became chairman of committees, but lost his seat to a Labor candidate in June 1904. He was reappointed chairman in November 1905 after becoming member for West Perth, but resigned his office and his seat because of ill health in August 1907. Despite allegations that, while treasurer, he had authorized the loan of government trust funds to a developer who was dummying for him, the Western Australian government granted him £1000 on the ground that the Victorian proceedings had almost ruined him. While Illingworth went to Melbourne, the auditor-general inquired into the charges but no action was taken against him before he died at Brighton, Melbourne, of arteriosclerotic heart disease on 8 September 1908. He was buried in Melbourne general cemetery with Church of Christ forms.
A diligent local member with a pawky sense of humour, Illingworth might have lived down his Victorian reputation in Western Australia if he had been a politician of sufficient calibre, but he was too much a man of detail to fill the vacuum left by Forrest.24

  • 19 Feb 1941, Minister's Golden Wedding
    Yesterday was a memorable day for Mr and Mrs A E Illingworth, of Brewster st, Essendon. It was their golden wedding anniversary, and it also marked the completion by Mr Illingworth of 50 years as a minister of the Church of Christ.
    Mr and Mrs Illingworth were married on February 18, 1891, at the Fitzroy Tabernacle, which has since been vacated and a new Church of Christ erected in its place. As a minister of the Church of Christ Mr Illingworth has spent 20 years in Victoria, 17 years in New South Wales, eight in Western Australia and five in South Australia.
    He has been president of the Churches of Christ Conference in each of those States as well as president of the Federal conference. He has also filled the office of president of the Victorian Council of Churches.
    Mr Illingworth came from Adelaide to Essendon Church of Christ, Buckley st, four and a half years ago. The congregation with the church executive committee, arranged a thanksgiving service in the Buckley st church last night, at which Mr and Mrs Illingworth spoke. A presentation was made to them to mark the occasion.
    Before the service a tea was held to commemorate the golden wedding anniversary. Many friends of Mr and Mrs Illingworth, as well as members of the congregation, attended the tea. Three sons and their wives and a grandson were present. The fourth son is Dr Harold Illingworth, who practises in Western Australia. Mr Frederick Illingworth is Australian and New Zealand secretary of Gordon and Gotch Ltd. Messrs Arthur and Clifford Illingworth are twin sons.5

  • 17 Dec 1898, MISS ILLINGWORTH. Thursday. Miss Illingworth, daughter of Mr. Illingworth, M.L.A. for the Central Murchison, was among the passengers who arrived in the steamer Freidrich de Grosse to-day. Miss Illingworth has completed four years musical study at the Melbourne University, and before taking her fifth and final year's course has come to spend two months' holiday with her friends.8

  • 4 Feb 1899, FIRE AT FREMANTLE. WAREHOUSE DESTROYED.
    At about five minutes before 11 o'clock on Feb. 3, a young man named Rowland Long, who resides in one of a terrace of houses in Packenham-street, Fremantle, on the south side of High-street, observed flames issuing from an arched right-of-way in a building occupied by Mr. Ben. Fysh, the agent for the Euroa Butter and Ice Factory, on the opposite side of the street. He rushed to the fire station, and gave the alarm. The waterpolice communicated with the watchman at No. 1 Fire station, but the general alarm had already been sounded by a boy named George Spence.
    The horse-brake was speedily got out, and dispatched to the scene of the fire, and was immediately afterwards followed by the hose-reel from No. 2 station. Three lines of hose were run out from plugs at the intersection of Packenham and Nairne and Collie streets.
    The front door of the building was burst open, and the fire was found to be burning fiercely in the midst of large quantities of corks, staves, hops, bacon, and cases of lime-juice. Though the pressure of water was excellent, the three streams directed on to the flames were for a time insufficient to cope with the conflagration, which had evidently originated in a corner of the office, and everything in the front portion of the warehouse, which was constructed of brick, was destroyed. The flames rapidly spread to the rear portion of the premises, which was constructed of galvanised iron. This danger was met by another line of hose being run in from Marine-terrace, through the premises facing Henry-street, and, with the assistance of one of the lines of hose from Packenham-street, all danger of the flames spreading was speedily checked. The firemen, under Superintendent Fraser and Fireman Hartley, combatted the flames until midnight before they could assure themselves that the water had subdued them. The front portion of the building was gutted, but very little damage was done to the rear portion, by reason of the work performed by the members of the brigade. A perfect deluge of water was poured into the shop, and the passage into Packenham-street became a rushing stream of water several inches deep, on which innumerable corks, with large quantities of hops, were floating out into the street.
    The parts of the warehouse to which most of the fire was confined were a well and substantially built structure of brick. The building, as well as that on the north of the archway, which was similarly built, are both owned by Miss Alice Illingworth, a sister of Mr. F. Illingworth, M.L. A. The building on the north side is empty, and was formerly occupied by Mr. A. Shaw, a Custom-house agent. To the south of the ware-house is a galvanised-iron produce store, owned by the executors of the Manning Estate, and occupied by Messrs. Drummond and Co. The flames did not touch either of the two adjoining buildings. To the rear, and facing Henry-street, is the large and heavily-stocked warehouse of Messrs. W. D. Moore and Co., which was in imminent danger at one time, when the flames began to run along the rafters of Mrs. Fysh's rear establishment, the two warehouses almost adjoining each other. The strong wind, which was blowing from the north at the commencement of the fire, very luckily dropped during its progress, and this was a large factor in preventing the flames from spreading towards Messrs. W. D. Moore and Co.'s warehouse. There were vegetables and butter stored in Mr. Fysh's warehouse at the time of the fire, a large quantity of butter intended for the warehouse which arrived during the day in the steamer Wollowra not having been discharged from the vessel. Mr. Fysh carries on several agencies besides that of the Euroa Butter and Ice Factory, among them being that of Messrs. Smith, Kenihan and Co., prominent Victorian bacon-curers.10
