  • 30 Aug 1893: The contest between Messrs Rogers, Gower and Turnbull for the Beaconsfield riding, resulted in the latter being elected by a majority of 33 votes. Mr Turnbull's return greatly pleases the Gembrook people, who have been without a resident representative for some time. We are informed that he has purchased a quantity of land previously in the occupation of Mr Crichton, and therefore has a large stake in the district.

  • 21 Sep 1915: RECRUITING AT GEMBROOK
    Quite 95 per cent. of those fit are gone from Gembrook or are going to the front. We feel very proud of the young men in this district. Mr. John Turnbull, of Gembrook, has three sons out of four at the front. His manager last week went into camp, and his billit will be open here on his return. According to the Argus' lists, Mr. Turnbull has given about £3,000,0 distributed among the different war funds. His daughter, Miss Turnbull, has given £500, and her brother, Mr. R. Turnbull, £500. At last Ferntree Gully shire council meeting a vote of thanks was passed to be sent to Messrs and Miss Turnbull. Nearly all the people in the Gembrook district have subscribed liberally to the numerous calls. - Dandenong " Journal."9
  • 15 Mar 1916: The death of Mr John Turnbull, a native of North Berwick, Scotland, took place at his Town residence on the 9th instant. He had been in failing health for a year or two. He left a fine property in Gembrook, also one in Queensland. He was at one time a Berwick shire councillor. He has three sons out of four gone to the war. According to the "Argus" war funds list he gave £5,000, in various sums of £500 to war and relief purposes. The people of Gembrook look upon his death as a heavy loss to this district and to the Empire. He was a true sportsman, and bred a few good horses in Gembrook. He had several winners. He won the V.R.C. St Ledger and other races with Finland, which he raced for one year and sold.10
