Dear Members, On Wednesday 18th March sadly I attended the Funeral of Terry Milligan at your delightful Church in the village of Upper Beaconsfield. I have known Terry & John for over thirty years and was shocked and distressed to learn of [her] death.
The purpose of this letter was to express my thanks for the invitation to take refreshments with you all. The unhappy circumstances under which we met was eased considerable by your company and the quality of the food you provided.
It is many years since I last visited Upper Beaconsfield, at one time I owned a small week end cottage in Armstrong Road at which John & Terry spent many an hour with us.
Yours sincerely,
D. C. Buckley.7

(Witness) Inquest8 Jan 1926Elizabeth Jennings witnessed the Inquest of John 'Jack' McNaughton on 8 Jan 1926; 1925/1361. McNaughton, John, Injuries accidentally caused, Berwick.
Evidence by Elizabeth Jennnigs:
This deponent Elizabeth Jennings on her oath saith, I am a married woman residing at Beaconsfield.
I reside about 200 years from where the accident took place. Returning from posting a letter, I saw the bullock team coming towards my house. Jophn McNaughton the owner was riding on the wagon. When he got opposite my house, he jumped off the wagon for the purpose of heading the bullocks towards the Upper Beaconsfield road instead of continuing straight along the bush tracks they were accustomed to travel. McNaughton cracked his whip. I don't know if he struck the leaders of his team but the bullocks began to gallop down the track towards the creek, instead of travelling the road he intended they should take, and I saw nothing further of his progress. About 20 minutes afterwards I was informed that an accident had happened and that Mr McNaughton had been killed, I then went to the scene of the accident, and saw the dead body of McNaughton, I did not examine the body, as it was apparent that life was extinct.
I did nothing further, as I was informed that a doctor had been sent for.
When I last saw McNaughton he was chasing the wagon, and calling out to the team to stop. I know that the wagon was heavily laden with cement.
Elizabeth Jennings, sworn at Berwick Eight day of January 1925 at Berwick before William Harvey-Smith
This deponent Frank Barnes on his oath saith, I am a Labourer (aged 15 years) residing at Beaconsfield with my parents.
I was on my way on Monday the 21st December to pick gum leaves down the bush road towards the Cardinia Creek, about 5 pm and I discovered the body of a man lying on the bush track. I was driving and stopped about 20 yards from him, and then returned to the residence of Mr Brown some 200 yards distant, and informed Mr Brown of what I had seen, and asked him to accompany me to the scene of the accident. Prior to getting Mr Brown I did not know who the deceased was. Upon reaching the body I discovered it was John McNaughton. I thought he was dead and I did not touch the body. I left Mr Brown at the body and continued my journey down the track and the team and wagon all intact some 400 yards further on where they had come to a standstill
Frank Barnes
sworn at Berwick Eight day of January 1925 at Berwick before William Harvey-Smith
This deponent Enos Brown on his oath saith, I am a labourer residing at Upper Beaconsfield.
At about 4.50 pm on the 21st December last, standing at my back door, I saw the bullock team galloping down the bush track, behind the little store, I saw McNaughton running behind his wagon. The team then became obscured from my view through a cottage and duct which was flying. Then about 10 minutes or perhaps 15, the previous witness, Barnes, came and told me that a man was lying on the road and he did not know what had happened. I asked him which road, and he said the back road, I said that it must be John McNaughton, as I had previously seen the bullocks bolting. I then went with Barnes, and saw the body, which I at once recognised as McNaughton. I placed my hand over his heart and then concluded he was dead, as the heart was not beating. While I was examining the body, a Mr Lewin a line man, in the employment of the telegraph department came along, and I asked him to communicate with a doctor and the police.

  • 4 Apr 1951: LATE MRS. JENNINGS WAS FORMERLY of BEACONSFIELD
    MRS. ELIZABETH JENNINGS of 15 Maude St., Ormond, who passed away peacefully in her sleep only two hours after her admission to the D. and D. Hospital last Friday, was in her 89th year. Welsh by birth—she was born in Beaufort (Wales) the late Mrs. Jennings resided for many years at Beaconsfield, for a short time at Berwick, and later still at Dandenong, where her son Ivor (“Dick”) is a well known accountant. She and her husband came out to Australia in 1914 and settled on a small farmlet on the Beaconsfield-Emerald Rd. They soon endeared themselves to the people there and became very well-known and liked. The late Mr. Jennings sang at many functions throughout the district. For a short period they removed to Berwick, but later returned to Beaconsfield. About 1935 they came to Dandenong where they made further friends.
    In her ill-health of this last few years the late Mrs. Jennings lived with her daughter, but returned this last few months to the home of her son, Ivor, at 122 Herbert St.
    She was a loving mother to her large family of 11, three of whom lost their lives on active service in the First World War. She is survived by four sons (Tom, Sydney, Ivor and Eric) and two daughters (Mrs. McDonald, and Mrs. Fleming), 14 grand-children and 17 great grandchildren.
    Many friends joined the sorrowing family on Monday when Rev. V. F. Hadley conducted a service at Mr. I. Jenning’s home before the funeral left for the Berwick Cemetery where the remains were reverently interred in the family grave. Rev. Hadley again officiated and W. J. Garnar and Son had charge of the funeral arrangements.14
