    M. G. HUXTABLE advised she was not in favor of giving up any of “Euralla” frontage in order to put a medium roiad through her property at Pakenham Upper. She suggested cutting and filling as an alternative and asked for a comparison of costs.—Crs. Whiteside and Richardson moved that Mrs. Huxtable be informed that she is holding up the progress of the district, and be asked to reconsider her decision.2
  • 25 Jun 1947, “Would Spoil View Of Mountains & Sunset” - NEW ROAD OPPOSED
    “WE ARE not prepared to let you have the land as per your plan, as, going in at an angle from the gate really renders half the front paddock useless, and the great thing is that in time it will spoil our view of the mountain and the sunset—and that is the sole reason we bought the place and are keeping it in the family. We want the road made where it is.”
    Thus ran an extract from a letter from M. G. Huxtable, of Pakenham Upper.
    Cr. White said he thought a reasonable proposition had been put up for the ratepayer’s own benefit. The writer is to be written to to this effect and the engineer is to prepare a rough estimate of the cost.3

Joseph Moyle

M, #22641, b. 1855, d. 6 Aug 1940
Book*From In the Wake of the Pack Tracks
A Groom's Eloquence started Pakenham Upper Settlement
When, in 1869, the Victorian Government passed the Free Selection Land Act, enabling a settler to select 80 acres (later increased to 320 there was a rush of people eager to settle on blocks. And Pakenham Upper's earliest settler was diverted from his plan to select land at Brandy Creek, north of Warragul, by the enthusiastic eloquence of a groom who extolled the virtue of the Pakenham Upper country.
J. Matters, a Devonshire fanner, had selected 30 acres at Nunawading but wanted more land. In 1872 he set out by Cobb & Co. coach for Brandy Creek, but while the horse were being changed at Bourke' Hotel, Pakenham, a Scandinavian groom persuaded him to inspect land at what is now Pakenham Upper. The groom claimed it was equal to Brandy Creek, and 40 mile closer to Melbourne - a big consideration in those day of coach travel. So it was that Matters and the groom blazed a trail into the hill, where the Devonshire man, convinced, pegged out 277 acres before returning home.
Slab Hut their first home
In August of the same year, Matters and a companion, Joseph Moyle, came back to the selection, and by Christmas they had built a slab hut. William Clink accompanied these two when next they visited their hill selection, and Mr. Matter's family followed soon afterwards. Potatoes and swede turnips were the first crops grown on the property, and Matters commenced dairying and pigraising. Butter was packed in wooden tubs, and once in three months a spring-cart load of butter, home-cured bacon and eggs, was taken to Melbournee. A three months supply of groceries was brought back. The supply of meat, mostly corned beef, was obtained for sixpence a pound from Bourke's Hotel, and was brought out by pack-horse. (p146)
Pack Horse track
About the same time as Matters settled here, settlement also commenced at Gembrook, where the settlers came in from Beaconsfield. To provide a link between Pakenham and Gembrook, a bridle track for pack horses was cut, passing through Pakenham Upper. Mr Lewis selected 50 acres along this track, his property extending to Ararat Creek. Mr Clink selected 20 acres, which he exchanged for a portion of Matters' first selection. Years later, the district's first Post Office was built on the land taken over by Clink, Mrs Clink being the first Post Mistress. (p147)
Mr Matters gave the land on which the church stands; the building was to be used as a church, school and public hall. (p148.)1
