John Stanley Ogden, manufacturer of quality padlocks and other locking devices, introduced the Lockwood brand when he established Ogden Industries in 1934.
The original building was destroyed by fire in 1943, and following Ogden’s death not long after, the company was purchased by Noyes. Production was then moved to the current facility at Oakleigh.
Over the ensuing years, Ogden Industries, which owned the Lockwood brand, was acquired by National Consolidated Limited, a group company of Adelaide Steamship company.10

  • 29 Jun 1937, Amesfield Park Sold
    A well-known property, Amesfield Park, Upper Beaconsfield, comprising a large residence and a five-roomed bungalow, on 30 acres of land, has been sold.
    The property was offered at auction last month by Yeo, Crosthwaite, and Co., under instructions from The Trustees Executors and Agency Co. Ltd. and Mr. C. Y. Syme, executors of the estate of the late Lieut. Colonel C. W. Campbell, but was withdrawn. The auctioneers have completed a sale privately to Mr. C. Ogden at about £2,200.11

  • 28 Oct 1942, Fatal Fall From Horse. UPPER BEACONSFIELD TRAGEDY.
    WHILE helping to round up some horses at his residence, “Amesfield,” Upper Beaconsfield, last Saturday, Mr. Charles Edward Henderson, 50, a well known resident of the district was killed, apparently by a fall from his horse. Nobody saw what happened and the first inkling anybody had of the tragedy was when Mr. Henderson’s riderless horse came galloping up.
    When Mr. J. S. Ogden whom deceased was assisting with the horses, went to investigate, he found deceased lying on the ground almost lifeless. He immediately got in touch with Dr. Leonard Langmore, of Berwick, but when he arrived he pronouced life extinct.
    Constable Bryant, of Berwick, was informed of the accident, and later Mr. McNabb, J.P., opened an inquest on the Monday, adjourning it to a date to be fixed.
    The late Mr. Henderson was a native of Aberdeen (Scotland) but had been out here for 16 years. He was very highly thought of throughout the Upper Beaconsfield district where the deepest sympathy is felt for his bereaved wife.
    The funeral, which was a private one, moved off from the Presbyterian Church, Berwick, for the Berwick cemetery on Monday, Rev. Cadwallader Jones performing the obsequies.
    W. J. Garnar and Son, directed the funeral.15

  • 25 Mar 1895, AN OFFICER AND HIS JACK BOOTS.
    John Walshe, boot maker, of 220 Queen-street, appeared at the District Court on Friday to sue Charles William Campbell, a newly appointed lieutanant in the Artillery Force, for £4 4s., being the price of a pair of military jack boots ordered by the defendant. Mr. Daly appeared for the complainant, and Mr. Fyffe for the defence. Plaintiff stated that defendant ordered the boots about 5 weeks back. Prior to that he had called in reference to having a pair made, but plaintiff would not take the order until he had made inquiries into Campbell's financial position, as he had had so much trouble previously "with these young officers." Being satisfied, he made the boots and delivered them to Campbell, who professed to be greatly pleased with the job. When the bill was presented, however, he refused to take delivery, upon which plaintiff took out a summons for the amount. For the defence it was contended that there had been a special contract made eight weeks back that the boots were to be finished within a fortnight. Walshe had not kept his agreement, and after extending the time on two or three occasions without any effect, Campbell was forced into purchasing another pair of ready made boots, for which he had paid another £4 4s. The bench made an order for £4 4s., the amount claimed, with 15s. costs, but upon the application of Mr. Fyffe granted a stay of proceedings for one month.17

  • 11 Mar 1914, MAJOR AND "BUTTONS." - ALTERCATION IN HOTEL. A TECHNICAL ASSAULT.
    Major Charles W. Campbell, of Amesfield Park, Mornington, was defendant in a case at the St. Kilda Court yesterday, a charge of unlawful assault having been preferred against him by a lad named Harold Godfrey Rudd, hall-boy at the Esplanade Hotel.
    Mr. J. Woolf appeared for the complainant, and Mr. Hamilton (instructed by Messrs. Woolcott and Drysdale) for the defendant. The bench was occupied by the mayor (Councillor O'Donnell) and Messrs. Mahony, Levi, Smithwick, and Billson, J.P.'s.
    The complainant, Rudd, stated that on the evening of February 21, Major Campbell, with his daughter and other visitors, sat down to dinner. Witness handed defendant the wine card. Defendant complained of it being in a soiled state, and, saying he did not want any drinks, threw the card on the table. Witness then walked away. He was not cheeky to Major Campbell. Shortly after 8 o'clock witness was standing in the hall of the hotel, when Major Campbell came up and said. "I have reported you to Mrs. McQuade over the wine card." Witness said, "Very well, sir." Defendant then struck him with the palm of his hand, and caught him under the collar, and tried to throw him down, but the witness held on to the stairs. Mrs. McQuade told defendant that if her husband had been there he would have ordered him out of the hotel.
    Mr. Woolf.-- Were you guilty of any rudeness to Major Campbell?
    Witness.-- No.
    What was his condition? - He seemed to be under the influence of drink. I am not certain.
    Mr. Hamilton.-Did you ask Mrs. McQuade for a clean wine-card? Witness.-No.
    Would money have squared this case?
    Mr. Woolf had the case in hand.
    On behalf of yourself and your father, Mr. Woolf wrote to defendant, claiming £40 damages, saying "Unless I receive a cheque for the damages I shall proceed without further notice."- I told Mr. Woolf what I am telling you now.
    Mrs. Margaret McQuade, wife of the licensee of the Esplanade Hotel, said: -- Major Campbell complained to me about the boy Rudd's impertinence.
    Mr. Woolf. -- You are an unwilling witness. You did not want to come here?
    Witness.-- No. I did not see Major Campbell strike the boy. I saw him put his hand on the boy's shoulder and push him. I said, "Mr. Campbell!" and he at once desisted.
    Did you tell defendant he ought to be ashamed of himself ?-- No.
    Joseph Peckham, head boots and porter, said that on the night in question the major appeared to be very "abrupt." He saw defendant get hold of the boy by the neck and shoulders, when Mrs. McQuade interfered. He heard Major Campbell say that the wine-card was not fit to put before a pig.
    In opening: the case for the defence, Mr. Hamilton said that the whole affair was of a trivial character, and had been greatly magnified.
    Defendant said that the wine-card which complainant- handed him was filthy dirty, and witness refused to take it. He (defendant) was perfectly sober that night, as he presided at the meeting of the St. Kilda Dinghy Club. To do the boy justice, he (defendant) would say that the actual words Rudd used might not appear to be impudent, or cheeky, but his whole demean- our was. The tips of his fingers only touched, Rudd's face. He caught him by the collar to take him to Mrs. McQuade.
    Mr. Woolf.--Are you a major?-- Yes, in the field artillery, for 22 years.
    Is a major supposed to be an officer and a gentleman?-- Yes, by act of Parliament.
    Is it gentlemanly to strike a boy of that size?-- Circumstances alter cases.
    Cecil Gillam, clerk in the Commonwealth Treasury, one of the party who had dinner with Major Campbell, said the boy Rudd, when spoken to about the wine-card, said he did not have another, and was insulting in his remarks. In the first instance, defendant had to send two waiters for a wine-card. Witness did not see the alleged assault.
    The Bench found that a technical assault had been committed, and imposed a fine of £3, in default 21 days, with £2/12/ costs.19

  • 14 Apr 1927, Especially enthusiastic owners of British cars at the present time are those who are proud to possess the same make of car as that which is being used for the distinguished transportation in Australia of members of the Royal party. General Sir Brudenell White, of Grange road, Toorak, has been the owner of a Crossley car for some time. The General's choice is a 15/30 English touring model. Another owner of this well-known British car is Major Charles Campbell, whose home is in Glenferrie road, Malvern, Major Campbell has a saloon model.21
  • 16 Nov 1929, At the Malvern show a choice collection of flowering shrubs was shown by Colonel C. Campbell, Amesfield Park, Upper Beaconsfield. Protea cynariodes is seldom seen growing in gardens. It is a native of South Africa, grows in Colonel Campbell's garden up to 4ft. in height, and carries large mauve to purple flowers. The specific name Cynaroides means artichoke-like, and describes the flowers, which resemble that of the globe artichoke, but are wider, fuller, and flatter. There was also a fine bloom of the waratah (Telopea speciosissima), a native of New South Wales, and one of the most brilliant flowering of all the Proteads. Both Protea cynaroides and the Telopea belong to the order Proteacese. Cantua dependens, a choice garden shrub stocked by nurserymen, but not well known in the amateur's garden, was also in the collection. It is a native of the Peruvian Andes, and the bell-like flowers are many coloured, yellow, rose pink, to cream being seen on the same bush, and even on a single flower. It grows to a height of 5ft. to 6ft., and like6 a warm position in sunshine. Azalea mollis, rich yellow; Genista Andreana, yellow and chocolate; Felicia augustifolia, mauve; Viburnum opulus, the Guelder rose were other flowering shrubs in this attractive display.22
  • 20 Jan 1932, Volunteers Thanked.
    Mr. C. W. Campbell, of Amesfield Park, Upper Beaconsfield, writes thanking members of the Berwick Fire Brigade, the Bush Fire Brigade and the Upper Beaconsfield Fire Brigade and others who came to his assistance on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, thus saving his house and portion of his garden from destruction by the bush fires.23
  • 21 Jan 1932, One of the worst bush fires in the memory of the oldest residents occurred here on Friday and Saturday, when a devastating fire swept over the district. On Friday, a fire, which had been burning in the scrub, fanned by a strong north wind, menaced the residence of Mr. McMillan, and in response to a call for help, about 50 men were soon engaged in a fierce fight to save the house and outbuildings. This they managed to do, and the fire then jumped the main road and threatened the residence of the Misses McLean; a break was burned, and the house was safe. On Saturday morning another fire commenced near Miss McLean’s boundary fence, and soon the residences of Messrs. Blair, Boker and Gilpin, and a number of others were in danger. A large band of willing workers managed to save the houses, but unfortunately they could not save the fine lemon orchard of Mr. McMillan, which was destroyed, also a week-end residence of Mr. Harkins. The heat was so great when the place got alight that it was im possible to get near it. In the after noon a sudden change of wind to the south caused the township to be menaced, and a desperate call for help was sent out, and in reply volunteers from Berwick, Narre Warren and Dandenong came to augment the local Bush Fire Brigade, until there were over 200 men, under the direction of Constable Barrett, and other leaders, engaged in the desperate effort to save the homes of Madame Montigue, Messrs. McBride, McDonald, Harvey-Smith, Rev. T. Greenwood, Robinson, J. Campbell, Major Campbell, Miss Elliott, J. Deville, C. Ellis, Claydon, Wright, Binding and Brown. The worst fight was at “Kyogle,” Mr. McDonald’s house; at one time it was felt that this fine residence would go, but the determined fight put up by the willing workers saved it. Here it was that anxiety was felt for one band who had become surrounded by flames, but they managed to get clear, although some of them succumbed to heat and smoke after getting out. The fine garden and plantation of Major Campbell was swept by the fire, despite the efforts of the workers, and hundreds of pounds worth of valuable plants and trees were destroyed, and the fine house was only saved by the superhuman efforts of the fire fighters. Miss Elliott’s house got alight, and part of the roof had to be stripped off before the fire could be put out. Mr. Ellis had the fence and pavilion attached to his tennis court destroyed, and the fire swept through his orchard, only being stopped within a few feet of the house. The house of Mr. Wright was saved by burning a break, as was Mr. Brown’s house and lemon orchard.
    On Sunday afternoon a small fire developed in Salisbury Gully, but it was soon got under control; whilst this was being put out an urgent call for help came from “The Towers,” Mr. Berglund’s property. A large body of men were rushed out, and the fire was got under control before very much damage was done. On Sunday a fire, which had started on the Saturday in Cordner’s Gully, crossed the Officer rd., and threatened the orchard of Mr. F. Love, but it was kept out, and, with the exception of the loss of some fencing, not very much damage was done.24

  • 10 Feb 1936, TOWN MENACED BY FIRE. TWO HUNDRED FIGHT FLAMES. BEACONSFIELD UPPER OUTBREAK.
    BEACONSFIELD UPPER Sunday - A bush fire menaced the township of Beaconsfield yesterday, but 200 fighters checked the spread of the flames and a heavy downpour of rain virtually extinguished the fire which was the most serious one. In the district this summer.
    Had it not been for the good work of the bush fire brigade assisted by volunteers, considerable loss of property might have occurred.
    The fire began on Friday in the gully below Mr McMillan's house on the main road from Beaconsfield to Beaconsfield Upper. A south east wind carried the fire up a gully to the back of the properties of Messrs Wright and Binding. It was checked there by beaters but crossed the road and damaged the orchard of Mr Walter Brown. The wind dropped in the evening and it was considered that the danger had passed.
    On Saturday morning, however, the south west wind carried the fire up another gully and only excellent work by the brigade and others saved the houses of Miss Elliot and Lieut Colonel Campbell. The wind was working round toward the township. To prevent that danger the brigade under the direction of the captain (Mr a'Beckett) burnt a break of about three quarters of a mile.28

Australian Dictionary of Biography

Chas Wm's father:
CAMPBELL, CHARLES (1840-1905), merchant and pastoralist, was born on 14 January 1840 at Aberdeen, Scotland, son of Duncan Campbell, cattle driver, and his wife Catherine, née McLean. Charles migrated to the Victorian goldfields in 1858, working at Woodend as agent for a firm of carriers before moving to New Zealand, where he became a successful flour-miller at Dunedin. Returning to Melbourne in the late 1860s he entered the lime business, and prospered. On 5 June 1861 in Wesley Church, Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, he had married Mary Ellen Smith, who had been born at Berwick-upon-Tweed, England. They were to have four sons and six daughters.

In 1872 Campbell was approached by the farrier James Cuming, an Aberdonian friend of his youth, to join in buying an acid works at Yarraville formerly managed by Cuming's brother-in-law George Smith. Campbell put up £3300 of the £4000 required, and as senior partner of Cuming, Smith & Co. led the new firm's diversification into fertilisers in 1875. In 1872 he had skilfully negotiated agreements to protect the market when customers Alfred Felton and F. S. Grimwade, wholesale druggists, built an acid works in competition; later Campbell and Cuming worked with Felton and Grimwade setting up an acid works in New Zealand (which Smith ran from 1880) and forming in 1882 the Adelaide Chemical Works Co. Excellent managers, the partners re-invested profits, eschewed speculation and easily survived the 1890s depression. By 1897, when Felton Grimwade merged their acid works in a reconstructed Cuming, Smith & Co., the firms were a major force in Australia's chemical and fertiliser industries.

Campbell was also a founder of the successful Apollo Stearine Candle Co, and in 1888 joined Grimwade in founding the Royal Bank, the only Melbourne bank not to suspend payments in 1893. With James Service, C. E. Miller and others he established the Port Melbourne Sugar Co., which later merged with Colonial Sugar Refining Co., a major survivor when the sugar boom faltered. Becoming, like many Melbourne merchants, a pastoralist, he invested in the Malvern Hills Pastoral Co. of Queensland, and in 1884 formed an equal partnership with Felton to purchase Murray Downs, a station of some 97,000 acres (39,255 ha) near Swan Hill. The partners spent heavily on improvements, spreading much superphosphate—presumably of their own manufacture—and establishing the largest irrigated area of the time on the Murray. In 1889 the station sent 327 bales of wool down river to the railhead at Echuca, but wool prices fell in the 1890s and drought was a recurrent problem. Campbell helped to set up the Pastoralists' Association of Victoria and Southern Riverina, became its treasurer, and was thanked by its council for services (unspecified) during the great strike of 1891.

In 1885 Campbell had joined Felton in supporting Rev. Charles Strong, the charismatic preacher expelled from Scots Church, encouraging him to found another. Described by Felton as 'the ablest practical head that the confraternity can claim', Campbell helped to build Strong's new Australian Church, and in 1897 was one of four 'proprietors' who cleared the building of debt and rented it back to the Church. By then he had joined Scots Church, where a window was later installed in his memory.

In maturity Campbell was bearded, bald and genial, but keen-eyed; Felton always admired his 'stubborn strength'. His family was established in Wollahra, a mansion in East Melbourne, but spent much time at Murray Downs; one daughter married the station manager and in 1895 his son Alec drowned there, on his twenty-first birthday, a few months after the death of Cameron's oldest daughter.

In 1897 Campbell and Felton bought, for £85,300, another large property, Langi Kal Kal, near Beaufort. When Felton died in January 1904, Campbell bought out his share in both stations. Campbell died of pneumonia on 13 September 1905 at Wollahra. He was buried in Boroondara cemetery, Kew; in its obituary, the Pastoralists' Review called him 'one of the ablest business men in Melbourne'. His estate, sworn for probate at £233,000 in Victoria, £115,672 in New South Wales and £24,080 in South Australia, was left in trust for his widow, surviving children and grandchildren.33

  • 1 Oct 1952, A Poser For The Ranger!
    H. STOTT, of Upper Beaconsfield, complained to the September meeting of the Berwick Council that deer were damaging his garden in St. George’s Rd.
    Smiles broke out around the council table when the writer suggested that the shire ranger might possibly know the haunts of the deer and take steps to clear them out.
    The President (with a smile): I don’t think the ranger has power to impound them !
    “I move that the matter be left in the hands of Cr. Ure and that he bring down the venison for our next council dinner!”, put in Cr. Kinsella jocularly.
    Cr. Ure, who has had some success in stalking deer, quickly retorted : “Let’s refer it to some sportsmen, such as Crs. Greaves, Kinsella and Ronald. They hunt foxes and I think they could overcome the problem ! I’ve watched for years and would like to know if the huntsmen ever get any foxes !
    “If you read the local paper you’d have seen where we got three!”, parried Cr. Ronald, amidst laughter.
    Council contented itself by receiving the letter so it looks as though venison will not be on the menu at next council luncheon.14

Albert Edward Ernest Rushall

M, #1396, b. 12 Sep 1855, d. 16 Jul 1917
Father*John Rushall b. 1823, d. 11 Feb 1857
Mother*Elizabeth Gower b. 1834, d. 30 Aug 1911
Note Heritage: Queen Street - Prolific property developer, F W Prell, commissioned architect, F M White to design these brick offices in 1885; the builder was David Mitchell. Prell was F W Prell & Co., merchants and importers, at this address after completion. Among the tenants of the 1890s were James Bell & Co., grain merchants, the Royal Insurance Co., the Colonial Sugar Refining Co. Ltd, William Watson shipping surveyor and McClure Valentine & Co., auctioneers. By 1900 Watson Royal Insurance and other mainly professional tenants remained but James A Weir, agent and Paul de Castello, wine merchant, were among the new ones. Around the time, the Tessellated Tile Company occupied the basement. Blainey's 'One Hundred Years of Johns & Waygood Ltd' 1856 - 1956 (19) tells of Friederich Wilhelm Prell's introduction to the Yankee elevator when W F Hall of the American Otis firm happened to chance upon him during the construction of the adjoining 15 Queen Street (1890), then only four storeys and without elevators. "Hall pointed out that the gentleman who had to climb four flights of stairs would probably reach the top floor with aching legs, fluttering heart and a firm resolution to do business elsewhere. Hall convinced Prell that the upper floors of a building served by a good elevator would yield as much rent as the ground floor". So Prell added two storeys and installed Victoria's first passenger elevators. But the early 1890s, Prell (and F M White) had moved on to the 7th floor of Broken Hill Chambers, 31 Queen Street; one of his twin awe-inspiring "sky scrapers" (8 storeys) which had introduced yet more Otis hydraulic elevators to Victoria. They were also the design of F M White, but have since been demolished. By 1893, principals in Prell's company included A E Rushall and S H Prell who resided with F W at Irving Road, Toorak. By c1930 the present name had been acquired (presumably in connection with Alfred Felton's estate), with major tenants being insurance companies, the Pearl Assurance Co. an.1

  • 29 Apr 1912, DEATH OF MR. F. W. PRELL. WELL-KNOWN BUSINESS MAN
    Mr. Friedrich Wilhelm Prell, who for many years has figured in the business and social life of Melbourne, died early on Saturday morning, at his residence, Iona, St George's Road, Toorak. His illness was a brief due, and his death was the direct result of a chill caught only last Tuesday morning. Mr Prell had, however, been suffering from lung trouble for some years, an attack of influenza, contracted many years ago, having left him prone to the repeated attack of bronchitis. He leaves a family of six, his wife having died seven years ago.
    Mr Prell was, perhaps, one of the best known figures in Melbourne commercial life. His name is associated with the block of buildings which he erected in Queen-street just prior to the big boom of 1893. He practically introduced to Melbourne the system of erecting big blocks which could be let in flats and offices, and he was practically the first man to introduce the now common system of elevators in these blocks. In business his word was his bond. The strenuousness with which he devoted himself to his business marked all that he touched in life. He walked, rowed, and raced with the same enthusiasm, and in his home life played billiards and chess with such keenness that, with Dr Fred Bird, he was at one time one of the best amateur billiard players in Victoria. Those whose memory of athletics in Melbourne goes back to 1880 will recall the Ancient Mariner's Rowing Club, and Mr Prell's connection with it. In fact, the world of sport has seen much of the late Mr Prell.
    He rode to hounds until old age prevented him doing so any longer. He was passionately fond of horses, and always kept good animals. At one time he won a Hunt Club Cup with a horse called Caliph, which was ridden by Sir Frank Madden. As far back as 1878 or1879 he won the Newmarket Handicap with a horse called Tom Kirk, which afterwards ran second in the Melbourne Cup. With Mr Power he was for some time hon. auditor of the V.R.C., and always took a great interest in the club and its doings.
    Mr Prell was of German descent, having been born in Hamburg over 80 years ago. He received his education in his native country, and came out to Australia when 21 years of age. In Sydney, he started as a member of the firm Ager and Prell. Five years later he dissolved partnership there and came to Melbourne, where he founded the firm of F. W. Prell and Co. Limited. His treatment of those who worked for him may be gauged from the fact that Mr A. E. Rushall, a partner in the firm, started his business career with Mr Prell as a boy, and has never left the firm, remaining in later days as a partner with the founder. Mr. Prell's business as a merchant was of an extensive character, both in the import and export trade, the considerable extent to which he participated in the development of the wheat export trade of Victoria representing only one phase of his multifarious activities. His long career covered a period in which great changes have taken place in the methods by which the world's commerce is carried on, changes in which Australian trade has shared along with that of other countries, and he brought a keen and well-trained intellect to bear in adapting himself to the changing conditions. As a business man his reputation was of the highest, and he enjoyed in the greatest degree the respect and esteem of all who came on with him.
    In 1859 Mr Prell married Miss Jessie Usher Dunlop, of Edinburgh. He was buried yesterday, the day that would have been his wife's birthday anniversary had she lived. He leaves a family of six. His eldest son is Mr Stewart Prell, who is an orchardist in Tasmania, while the second son is Mr Charles Prell, who is a pastoralist, near Goulbourn, New South Wales. His third son, Mr Harry Prell, has been in his father's firm for a number of years past, and is a well-known figure in commercial circles. The eldest daughter is the wife of Mr G. Fairbairn, M.H.R; the second is the wife of Mr F Keating, of Anthony Gibbs, and Sons, financiers, London, and the third was married to Mr James E Hayes, of Gibbs, Bright, and Co.
    The interment took place yesterday at the Booroondara Cemetery. The funeral was largely attended, the Rev. J.F. Macrae officiating both at the house and at the graveside. The chief mourners were the two sons, Mr Charles and Mr Harry Prell, while Mr Fairbairn, M. H. R., Senator Frazer, and Messrs J. C. Stewart, James F. Haynes, A. E. Rushall, H. Byron Moore, T. M. Stewart, and W. T. Sharp acted as pallbearers. The funeral arrangements were carried out by A. A. Sleight.25
  • 26 Jul 1917, The late Mr. Alfred Rushall, who died last week, was an example of a man who, despite bodily infirmity and suffering, won his way to success. He was always genial and kindly, and those who met him, whether as friends or in business, were impressed with this disposition. Entering the office of F. W. Prell and Co. forty years ago, he rose to be a partner of the firm in 1889. About this date the foundations of the large buildings associated with Prell's were laid, and he to a large extent planned and saw them built. When pioneering the wheat export trade, Mr. Rushall rendered substantial assistance. Since the death of Mr. F. W. Prell in 1912, Mr. Rushall has been in partnership with Mr. Harry Prell.
    Captain Rushall, who convoyed the Australian Mounted Cadets on several occasions through Europe, is a brother.26

Mother*Elizabeth Gower b. 1834, d. 30 Aug 1911
Note* Dr South writes: Above us immediately was the Rushall Country home. Old mother and 3 sons, Archie, Fred and Alec - They were the financial strength of the well known firm Prell and Co., though to see how the Prell's swanked it socially, while the Rushalls lived very quietly, you'd not think so. Fred was accountant to the firm and, one morning was missing from their nice home in Robe St, St.Kilda. The younger and the elder brother spent much money on detectives, and for three years , without avail - then the detective came to say they had found Fred - he'd been travelling with and as an Afghan hawker in the Riverina the while, and refused to return. His brothers arranged a credit of three pounds a week for him with certain Riverina banks, and until they died, never saw him again. The mother was dead long before Fred left home. None of them married.1

  • 4 Dec 1934, PICTURESQUE NAVAL WEDDING. Three Pages in Sailor Suits
    Wedding bells rang out above St John s Church Toorak and the sunshine gleamed on the swords upraised to form an arch of honour above Desiree Ursule, elder daughter of Mr and Mrs Cecil Finch of Caroline street, South Yarra and Commander James Claude Durie Esdaile as they left the church after their marriage yesterday afternoon. In the interior of the church great banks of white and golden flowers were massed against the pulpit and were arranged in feathery clusters on the tall staves lining the aisle. The brides lovely gown was of gleaming ivory satin with a slender trained skirt and softly draped bodice. Beneath the filmy tulle veil held in place with a coronet of orange blossom and green leaves a short veil of exquisite old Limerick lace hung cape-fashion from the shoulders. The veil which is more than 200 years old was lent by Miss Mabel Lilley. The bride's bouquet was of creamy roses shading to pale gold.

    She was attended by two bridesmaids her sisters Miss Denise Finch and Miss Ainslie Williams and three small boys Pat and Rory Burnett and Rod O Connor clad in white sailor suits. The bridesmaids' frocks were of heavy cream mant crepe embroidered with small golden spots made ankle length with softly draped bodices and gracefully hanging skirts. Wide sashes of the same material as the frocks lined with golden tissue were knotted at the back and fell to the hem. The maids carried bouquets of golden roses and wore wreaths of golden flowers in their hair.

    Naval uniforms with all the splendour of gold braid which were worn by the groom and his attendants and the guard of honour added to the picturesque scene.

    The bride was given away by her father and the officiating clergyman was the chaplain of Flinders Naval Depot (the Rev George Stubbs). The groom, who is the second son of Mr and Mrs Thomas Esdaile, Broken Hill (NSW) was attended by Paymaster Lieut Commander P Perry as best man and Lieut Commander B Barwood.

    After the ceremony an informal reception was held at Judge Williams's home in St Kilda road. Mrs Finch wore a charming frock of platinum grey chiffon with a black fox fur and a wide-brimmed black straw hat. She carried a bouquet of deep red roses.
