  • 11 Mar 1910, FIRES IN THE COUNTRY. BEACONSFIELD UPPER, Thursday.—On Saturday last a lath and plaster house, known as Lawes's, the property of Mr. Whiting, solicitor, of Melbourne, was destroyed by fire. A person on the adjoining property saw smoke rising at about 7 in the morning, but thought that it was merely the bush burning. The main part of the building was burnt to the ground, but another portion, consisting of three rooms, was left intact. The property is insured.9
  • 16 Mar 1927, SIR RUPERT CLARKE. TERMS OF WILL. VICTORIAN ESTATE, £284,887.
    Messrs. Whiting and Byrne solicitors, William street, yesterday lodged for probate the will of Sir Rupert Havelock Clarke, Br., of Bourke street, Melbourne, who died out of Monte Carlo on December 25. The will is dated August 28, 1924. It is varied by a codicil dated April 12, 1926.
    Sir Rupert Clarke left estate in Victoria consisting of real estate valued at £81,005 and personal property valued at £203,882. The principal portion of the real estate is the property widely known as Bolinda-vale, situated near Lancefield. The personal estate consists largely bonds, valued at about £128,000, shares valued at about £20,000, and debts due to the estate amounting to £25,000. By his will he appointed Mr. Robert Selman Whiting, solicitor; Mr. Henry Joseph Whiting, solicitor; and Mr. Edgar Edward Dye, ac- countant, all of William street, Melbourne, to be his executors and trustees. He left to his godchild, Robert Rupert Hammond Chambers, £2000, until his godchild, Agatha Mary Macnamamy, £500. To his housekeeper, Rose Marson, he left £500, end to his valet Thomas Duggan, £1000. To Mr James Scobie, horse trainer, Sir Rupert Clarke bequeathed two racehorses, to be selected by him.
    Sir Rupert Clarke left to his wife all his furniture, motor-cars, &c., at Caerlon, Bellevue Hill, Sydney. He directed that his trustees should permit his wife, during her life, to use and occupy and receive the rents and profits of Caerleon, the trustees tickets are properly in order. He also left to his wife his property known as Pitt water, near Sydney. When his elder son shall attain the age of 21 years he will inherit a property at Lancefield, containing 4,622 acres, with all improvements in stock. As Sir Rupert Clarke had in part provided for his wife and two deeds of settlement in 1922, he devised to her cheering her life and annuity of such an amount "as shall with the net income derived by her under the two deeds of settlement make a total sum of £2000 a year, commencing from the date of my death." Sir Rupert Clarke directed that the residue of his estate should be converted into money. After the payment of his debts and other expenses his trustees are to set inside the sum of £100,000 for each son, and apply the net income for the maintenance and education of such sons until they reach the age of 21 years, when they shall stand possessed of the amounts absolutely. If no son shall attain the age of 21 years the sounds so set apart shall fall the and form part of the residuary estate.
    Provision for Young Baronet.
    The trustees are to set aside the sum of £50,000, and hold it and all the accumulations of income for whichever sum shall, on his attaining the age of 21 years, hold the baronetcy of the family. In the event of a son not reaching 21 years of age, the amount so set aside shall fall in and form part of the residuary estate. The Trustees are also directed to appropriate and set aside the sum of £60,000 for each daughter who shall survive her father. If any daughter shall predeceased him, leaving child or children, such child or children shall take the amount so set apart on attaining the age of 21 years. The trustees are also instructed to appropriate the sum of £10,000 to pay the income to Sir Rupert Clarke's sister-in-law, Hilda Robertson, for her sole and separate use. After these appropriations, the trustees are directed to pay the net income to Sir Rupert Clarke's widow for her separate use. After her death this portion of the estate is to be held in trust has to both corpus and income for his children as tenants in common. Regarding the share of his daughters, Sir Rupert Clarke directed that the shares should be invested and the income paid to them for their sole and separate use free from any control. He appointed his wife to be the guardian of his infant daughter during her lifetime. After her death as trustees are to be guardians of the children.
    In the codicils Rupert Clarke gave £500 to Harry Aldridge, residing at The Shack, Pittwater. He revoked the clause giving his wife the right to reside at Caerleon, because she had acquired for herself a freehold property as a permanent residence. He revoked the clause in his will providing for an annuity for his wife, and increased the amount of the annuity to £5,000.
    Sir Rupert Clarke gave to his trustees various directions and powers regarding the sale, administration, and general conduct and control of his estate. The affidavits filed yesterday deal only with the late Sir Rupert Clark's property in Victoria. He also possessed estate in New South Wales and other States of the Commonwealth, as well as in New Guinea and abroad. He had purchased at Monte Carlo the Villa des Abeilles, where he died. He is succeeded by his elder son, Rupert William John Clarke, born in 1919, who becomes the third baronet. Sir Rupert Clarke was born at Rupertswood, Sunbury, on March 16, 1865. He was the son of Sir William John Clarke, M.L.C., the first baronet. He was twice married. His family consists of two daughters by the first marriage, and three children—two sons and one daughter—by his second marriage.10

  • 17 Jun 1896, The Beaconsfield Railway League, with Mr. H. E. Martin as its secretary, do not intend that our light should be hid under a bushel, and if we don't get a railway it will not be for want of asking. A meeting is announced to be held at the Mechanics' Institute (better known as the Assembly Hall), on Wednesday, 17th inst., to arrange a deputation to the Minister of Railways, which doubtless will duly set forth the superior claims which our district undoubtedly possesses to a share of anything good that may be going.6
  • 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.7

  • 27 Mar 1896, TERRIFYING EXPERIENCE IN A STORM. UPPER BEACONSFIELD, Thursday. A terrible thunderstorm broke over here and Gembrook last evening. A family named Martin, residing at the latter place, had a most uncomfortable experience. An immense tree, distant 27 foot from the house, was struck and splintered, pieces falling all over and around the house. Fortunately the bulk flew in an opposite direction, or the consequences would have been terrible, all the family being then at home. Only on Monday last Mrs. Martin had been confined, and as her room was the nearest to the tree her alarm can be imagined. The shock affected her considerably, and at an early hour this morning her condition was critical.6
