William Black

M, #5645
Land-Note*Dec 1878 William Black wrote a letter the the Minister of Lands to apply for the selection of Thomas Headen of Windsor, and asks to be put in possession of the land as no improvements whatever had been effected thereon even though the licence had been in existence for about 12 months.1 
Land-Note*Dec 1878 William Black engaged William Brisbane for his land dealings in Upper Beaconsfield.2,1 
Land-UBeac*a 4 Apr 1879William Black selected land from the Crown. GEM-C-30. 19a 3r 5p - Land File 1083/49.4. Crown grant to W. BLACK on 23 Sep 1884. Previously selected by William John Headen who forfeited.2,3 
Land-Note*5 Mar 1884 GEM-C-31: Beaconsfield, March 5/1884
Dear Sir, In reference to Mr F. E. Stewart's application for a certificate of improvements on his 49th Selection, but refused because the Crown Lands Bailiff could not endorse Mr Stewart's claim for improvements. I have seen Mr McWilliams the C.L.B. who states that the wrong block was pointed out to him, one distant about two miles from that which he ought to have looked at, as Mr Black's land adjoined Mr Stewart's and as his application met with a similar fate. It will be far more satisfactory to either grant these gentlemen what they require (as the valuations are there) or have the improvements re-valued.
Request the valuer to call on me and I will accompany him. Let him give me a few days notice. Amidst such a multitude of 20 acre blocks a stranger can easily make a mistake. More especially when there are so many selections bearing the same name.
Yours truly, W Brisbane.1
