  • 1 Jun 1875, Death of father: WILLDER. - On the 5th April, at Kensington, London, John Willder, father of Derbin Willder, of this city, in the 91st year of his age. He was present at the Battle of Copenhagen, under Admiral Sir Hyde Parker.8
  • 23 Sep 1878, THE WILLDER DIVORCE SUIT. - An application was made to Mr. Justice Barry on Saturday, by Mr. Molesworth, in the divorce suit of Willder v. Willder and Clutterbuck, on behalf of the co-respondent Clutterbuck, for leave to defend the suit. The case had been set down for trial at the last sittings, but was postponed (says the Argus) on the application of Mrs. Willder, who alleged that the petitioner had been previously married, and that his first wife was alive at the date of the second marriage, and therefore, the later marriage being void, there could be no divorce. The hearing of the suit has been appointed for the 27th inst. Mrs. Willder has lately obtained leave to defend on the ground that she has obtained through Mr. Berliner, information that the first wife is alive. It was on the same ground that the present application was made. Mr. Neighbour, on behalf of the petitioner, read an affidavit by Mr. Willder that, in 1868, he employed Mr. Berliner to ascertain where his wife was, or whether she was alive, and that Mr, Berliner had, after some months, reported that she could not be found, but promising to give any information when he obtained it. His Honor granted the application, the co-respondent to pay the costs. Otto Berliner and Co. wrote to the Argus stating that as Mr. Willder only gave them £10 to prosecute the search, they could not get the information for him ; but did get it for Mrs. Willder, who spent a good deal of money. On Monday an application was made to Mr. Justice Barry by Mr. Lewes, on behalf of the respondent, for a commission to take evidence in San Francisco, to prove that the first Mrs. Willder was still alive. The application was opposed on behalf of the petitioner, but Mr. Justice Barry said that there must be an inquiry as to whether the first wife was alive or not, and he granted the commission, directing that it should be returned in six months.9

To A J Skene Esq., Surveyor General of Victoria, Melbourne
Sir, We the selectors and residents of Gembrook and Packenham County of Mornington humbly request that you will please order that a new road may be surveyed through the selection of Mr Arthur Knight in the Parish of Packenham. This road we request will be to start from the north east corner of Mr Knight's selection, thence south west distant at about five chains more or less and being west from the two chain road and thence ending at the south east corner of the said selection. This new line of road will be on the side of a very high hill and with little expense can be made into a very good road. The present one chain road is too steep that it is almost impossible for us to get either up or down it and ought never to have been surveyed in that place. Trusting that you will give this a favourable consideration.
We have the honor to be,
Sir, your most obedient servants.

  • 17 Jul 1876, WEDNESDAY, JULY 12, (Before his Honour Judge Noel). RE JOHN JAMES MODRAL.
    An examination was held in the estate of J. J. Modral, of South Yarra, contractor, Mr. Braham appearing for the trustee, and Mr. O'Halloran for the insolvent.
    J. J, Modral, the insolvent, and J. C. Loughrey, a creditor, were examined. From their evidence it appeared that early in June last Modral, who owned a house in Wilson street, South Yarra, worth about £500, and on which there was then a mortgage for £260, gave a second mortgage over the house to Loughrey, to secure him for a debt of £109 17s. 7d. Insolvent said the mortgage was given under a threat from Loughrey that he would issue a writ for the debt, but Loughrey denied that any threat was used, and also said that any statement of the insolvent, to the effect that he said he owed money to other creditors, and it would not be right to give the mortgage, was untrue. The examination then closed.9
