Author’s Note

Edward Teague and Susannah Pascoe were my maternal 3 x great grandparents.  This paper which focuses on them is one part of a larger history of the Teague-Pascoe family of Cornwall who arrived in South Australia in 1849.  Attachment 3 is a descendant chart of the whole family, as far as I know it, but many gaps remain.

I have no family records to shed light on the lives of Edward and Susannah. Rather, I have drawn information from the public domain: births, deaths and marriages across Australia and in Cornwall, probate records, newspaper reports, local histories, historical maps, archival material and the like.  I have also researched South Australian land records intensively which proved a very productive and interesting line of enquiry.  I am grateful to staff at Land Services SA who were most helpful, and to staff at the State Library of SA who provided me with assistance during my research.

Inspired by a visit to the Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society at the Coventry Library, Stirling in the Adelaide Hills, and by Chris Chardon’s meticulous research on the history of Main Street in Stirling,   I set myself the task of tracking what happened to Edward’s land in Stirling from 1871 when he bought 52 acres.  Little did I know the scale of that task when I started.  Attachment 1 sets out the fruits of my labour, and Attachment 2 details my conclusion about who built the heritage-listed house at what is now 7 Pomona Road, Stirling.

I am particularly grateful to John McGregor of the Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society who generously read an earlier version of this paper and made many helpful suggestions which have been incorporated in this version.  I also thank Chris Chardon of the Historical Society who offered comments on an earlier draft which have also been incorporated.

As part of the larger family history, I have written another paper on Edward’s two sons, Charles and James Henry, titled A Tale of Two Brothers: Charles Teague and James Henry Teague and their families in the Orroroo district of South Australia.  Anyone interested in obtaining a copy of this is welcome to email me at the address below.

It has been difficult to find details in the public records about Susannah Teague and her six surviving daughters.  This is not unusual in that women of previous eras were often confined to the unrecorded private sphere, or rendered invisible.  I hope that other family histories, written by those who knew them or have access to private family records, may emerge to help produce a more rounded and inclusive view of both the women and men of the Teague family.

While I have made every effort to get the facts right, errors or omissions are inevitable.  I would be pleased to hear from anyone who has additional information about this Teague family or who is able to correct my errors or fill in the many gaps that remain.

Edward Teague was born in 1807 in Truro in Cornwall, England, the son of James Teague and Susanna Leves 2  He was baptised in the Independent (Bethesda) Chapel in Truro located within the Cornwall parish of St Mary. 3 Bethesda Chapel was Congregational at that time, 4 and Edward remained an active member and benefactor of non-conformist Congregationalist and Methodist churches all his life.

From the collection of the Royal Cornwall Museum.Susannah Pascoe was born in 1811 in Truro, Cornwall, the daughter of James Pascoe and Ann Andrew.  She was baptised in 1812 at St Marys Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Truro. 5

Edward Teague and Susannah Pascoe were married in Truro in 1831. 6  Both were non-conformists in that they did not follow the teachings of the Church of England.  However, they were married in St Clement Parish Church because from 1754 until 1837 when civil registration was introduced, it was illegal to marry anywhere except in a Church of England parish church unless you were a member of the Society of Friends (Quakers) or Jewish.

Edward was a stone mason by trade, specialising in statuary, and he had established a business partnership in Cornwall at an early age.

After he arrived in South Australia, Edward broadened his work to include building contracting and land dealing in the Adelaide Hills, but all his life he presented himself as a mason in official documents.  He must have been proud of that occupational label, and I can attest first-hand to his outstanding craftsmanship.  He personally carved a headstone for John Knight, my 3 x great grandfather and father-in-law of Edward’s eldest daughter Mary Jane Teague.  This 1865 headstone, in the Wesleyan Methodist Church churchyard in Langhorne Creek, is still easily readable after more than 150 years.  He carved deep and straight and true.

It is not confirmed where Edward and Susanna’s first three children – Mary Jane, Amelia Ann and Lucretia – were born, although it is most likely that they were born in Truro, Cornwall.  But by 1836 the Teague family was living in Redruth where the three daughters were baptised together at home by a preacher from the Truro Circuit of the Arminian Bible Christian church. 7  One or more of these daughters may have been born in Redruth. Their fourth daughter, Louisa, was born at Sunny Corner, Redruth in 1840. 8

Redruth was the capital of the greatest of all Cornwall’s mining areas, important for its marketing, financial, managerial and institutional roles, the greatest market town in west Cornwall, and a non-conformist stronghold.

But the end of the decade revealed serious problems – the parish vestry which ran the town was virtually bankrupt by 1840, many of the best local men were emigrating, overbuilding had caused property values to fall, and mining was taking a downturn, all of which was a prelude to the problems of the following decade, the ‘hungry forties’. 9

By 1841 the Teague family had moved south from Redruth to Penzance and was living in Leskinnick Terrace, which was then home to many Penzance artisans – tailors, upholsterers, shoe-makers and multiple masons, including Edward. 10  By the time their first son, Charles, was born in 1842, the Teague family was living in the nearby Penwith Street, Penzance. 11

Edward & Susannah Teague & their four children were living in this street at the time of the 1841 UK Census.           Exhibit 4: Penwith Street, Penzance, Cornwall England, 2012. The Teague family was living in this street in 1842 when their fifth child, Charles, was born.

By around 1844, the family had moved yet again, this time some 60 miles (96 km) north to the small village of Pengelly in north Cornwall (now part of the large village of Delabole) where Edward had obtained work as a foreman at the Delabole Slate Quarry. 12  Pengelly, an area right next to the quarry, was almost wholly inhabited by slate quarrymen and other workers connected with the quarry.

Two more daughters were born in Pengelly: Selina, 13 and Matilda. 14

To South Australia

Exhibit 7:  Poster to promote Cornish emigration to South Australia. https://www.cornwallforever.co.uk/history/1815-1920-the-great-emigration.Cornwall in the 1840s was hit by both the potato blight and economic downturn, a period known as the Hungry Forties. This triggered a second wave of migration from Cornwall.  The first wave had begun after the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 and the third wave hit after 1866 when the bottom fell out of the international copper market, triggering a mass exodus of Cornish miners, often with their families, to the New World in South Africa, Canada, USA and to the Australian colonies.  The second wave did include miners but many other Cornish emigrants were laborers and skilled tradespeople.

Hard times, a pre-existing culture of temporary and permanent migration in Cornwall, and a growing international emigration trade supported by closely-linked networks of agents, colonial authorities, government officials, clergy, newspapers and others all combined to create the conditions for wholesale migration from Cornwall to the New World. 15  While the number who emigrated overseas from Cornwall each year cannot be known exactly, it has been estimated that between 1846 and 1851 alone, at least 7,650 Cornish people emigrated to Australia. 16

In search for a better life, Edward, Susannah and their seven children joined the second wave exodus.  On 7th April 1849, they departed Plymouth on the ship Prince Regent which carried some 60 Cornish settlers. 17  They arrived in Port Adelaide on 20th July 1849.

The family was given free passage, but Edward had to pay an additional £7/0/0 as the number of his children under 10 years exceeded (by one) the limit for free passage. 18

In Adelaide, but briefly

Less than a month after arrival, Edward was establishing his business as a mason in Wright Street, Adelaide.19

Putting down roots in Littlehampton

It is likely that Edward relocated his business and his family from Adelaide to Littlehampton in the Adelaide Hills in early 1850. 20  The family was recorded as residing in Blakiston, 4km from Littlehampton, when a second son, James Henry Teague, was born in July 1850. 21

There was already an established network of Cornish settlers in the Littlehampton area, including John Knight who had worked at the Delabole Quarry at the same time as Edward and who had emigrated with his family two years earlier in 1847.22  The Knight family first settled in Littlehampton  ... when it was still covered in wattles, with not a portion cleared.  They witnessed the first house erected by a Mr Simpson on the corner opposite where the Great Eastern Hotel now stands. 23  The Teague and Knight families of Littlehampton were formally linked by marriage in 1850. 24

On 19th July 1851, Edward was recorded as a stone mason of Littlehampton when he bought Lots 13 and 18 in the village of Littlehampton from Francis Robert Hunt and Benjamin Gray, brewers of Littlehampton, paying £23/10/00 for the two lots. 25  He must have done reasonably well in his short period in Australia to have accumulated such funds without relying on a mortgage.

The village of Littlehampton was established at the junction of four different Sections in the Hundred of Macclesfield, each with different but also overlapping landowners.  Edward’s first two purchases were in Section 5011 which was surveyed by Corporal Dawson in 1849, and granted to Hunt and Gray in the same year.  The township was laid out by Benjamin Gray, presumably in consultation with the other landowners at the time. 26  But it was not until 1857 that the plan was formally registered, 27  by which time the village had grown substantially and some initial landowners had changed. 28

Exhibit 9:  Plan of the Village of Little Hampton, Hd of Macclesfield in 1857 showing location of Lots 13 & 18 on Section 5011 purchased by Edward Teague in 1851 & Lot 28 purchased by Edward Teague & others in 1863 for a Wesleyan chapel & school-room. SAILIS GRO Plan 28 of 185

Edward would have been amongst the earliest settlers and purchasers in Littlehampton. Lot 18 was almost one acre (3 roods 36 perches), 29 and Lot 13 was originally 1 acre 1 rood 21 perches, 30 bringing his total holdings to 3 acres 17 perches or thereabouts, or 1.26 hectares in today’s metric system.

Edward and Susannah arrived in Littlehampton with five daughters and two sons ranging in age from Amelia Ann, aged 17 to James Henry, an infant, to provide for.  Their eldest daughter (Mary Jane) was already married but possibly living with the Teague family.  They set about making a family home.  In 1852, they had their ninth child and seventh daughter, Ellen. 31  There are no further records for Ellen.  I believe that she may have died as an infant and her death was not registered, although non-registration of deaths does not fit well with Teague family practices.

In time, Edward and Susannah built an eight-room stone house with an orchard and vegetable garden and a 1,000-gallon tank. 32  I have not been able to confirm exactly where the house was built but it was probably on Lot 18 fronting the road to Balhanna (now Junction Road), this being the portion that remained in the Teague family until 1902.  As best I can determine, the address of Lot 18 is now No. 9 Junction Road, Littlehampton.33

The first church to be constructed in Littlehampton was the Primitive Methodist Chapel in 1855, and it is possible that Edward contributed to its construction.  However, the number of Wesleyan children in the village was growing and a public meeting on 4th December 1861 resolved unanimously to erect a schoolroom to be used as a preaching place and classroom.  Plans were drawn up for a building 30 feet long, 20 feet wide and 15 feet high.  On 6th January 1862 tenders opened for construction of the church on the plan with the addition of a porch by Mr Teague and the site was selected and marked out on 24th February 1862. 34   On 22nd April 1862, the foundation stone of the chapel was laid, 35 and the chapel was opened on the 8th February 1863. 36

The chapel was located on Lot 28 in Section 5008, as indicated in Exhibit 9.  The history of this Lot needs clarification.  The Littlehampton Community Newsletter states that on 27th December 1861, the Lot was purchased from George Milway, shopkeeper for £15/0/0. 37  I have found no evidence of this transaction in the land records.  George Milway did purchase two Lots (28 and 30) in January 1860 for £30/0/0, 38  so presumably he approved the erection of the chapel on his land.  Then, in October 1863, Edward Teague joined together with 11 others including George Milway and three reverends to buy Lot 28 from George Milway. 39

The Littlehampton Wesleyan chapel became Methodist in 1900 and the property was vested in Methodist Church (SA) Property Trust on 9th August 1973.  In 1977 this, and all other Methodist churches, became part of the Uniting Church in Australia.  The heritage-listed church is the third-oldest surviving Wesleyan chapel in the Mount Barker district and the oldest surviving Wesleyan Church still in use as a church building. 40  It continues to serve the Littlehampton community.

Establishing a business in Littlehampton

Edward continued his stone mason business and I expect that a close examination of headstones in local cemeteries may reveal his name carved at the bottom left hand corner.  But as Littlehampton grew in the 1850s, Edward began to diversify his business activities to include building and contracting work.  I think his initial work may have involved building houses and shops.  In 1853 he took Thomas Biddles to court for failure to pay for work and labour done, 41  so he may have been involved in the building of the Great Eastern Hotel during 1853.

Family Matters

In 1854, Amelia Ann Teague aged 20 married Nicholas Hawke aged 24 at St James Church, Blakiston. 42  As with the Teague and Knight families, Nicholas had emigrated to South Australia from the village of Delabole in Cornwall. 43  By 1857 Amelia and Nicholas had moved to Dairy Flat (now Torrens Vale), Yankalilla which became their life-long home.  Nicholas Hawke was, for many years, an elected Councillor to the District Council of Yankalilla.

Then, in 1855, Edward’s third daughter, Lucretia, married William Henry Weller at the residence of Thomas Knight, Mount Barker. 44  I take this to be the home of Thomas Skinner Knight, Lucretia’s brother-in-law, married to her sister Mary Jane Teague.  Within three years, William Henry Weller had deserted his wife and a police warrant was issued for his arrest. 45  In August 1858 Edward applied to the Mount Barker District Council to “... recommend his daughter (Lucretia Wellar) as an inmate of the Destitute Asylum, she having been deserted by her husband and liable to fits, and perfectly unable to do anything towards her own support or take care of herself." 46  The Destitute Board Meeting at Mount Barker considered a letter from the chairman of the District Council applying for relief.  The Board noted that she had a large family and agreed that enquiries be made respecting her father's circumstances and as to some property of her husband’s said to be held by a Mr Andrews. 47

I have found no records of the final decision of the Destitute Board, and no records to suggest she was admitted as an inmate of the Destitute Asylum.  In January 1859, William Henry Weller “... was brought up on warrant from the Tatiara District on a charge of deserting his wife. Defendant endorsed to his wife's father certain securities for money in satisfaction of his claim; upon which, and his promise to take care of his wife for the future, he was discharged.” 48

Lucretia died at Littlehampton in 1864 aged 28 years. 49  Official cause of death was epilepsy, 50  which may explain why she was liable to fits.  She was buried in a now unmarked grave in the cemetery at St James Church Blakiston. 51

Business growth

Edward’s business dealings in the 1860s continued to diversify, and he started tendering for public works.  In 1859 he won a tender for the supply of Willunga slate to Mount Barker Council, harking back to his Cornwall Delabole days, 52  but missed out on his tender for building a stable and sundry repairs at Mount Barker Police Station. 53  On 9th March 1860, he mortgaged both Lot 13 and Lot 18 in Littlehampton to the South Eastern District Permanent Building and Investment Society for £120. 54

In 1864 he was proposed as auditor for the Mount Barker District Council.  While not elected, the nomination suggests he had some financial acumen and a reputation for integrity. 55  In 1865 his tender for building abutments and piers of the bridge on Mount Road, was accepted by Council. 56

Then, in 1866 he was selected as the contractor to construct the first bank in Mount Barker, the National Bank. 57

I take comfort in the fact that this lovely sandstone building is still standing and is heritage listed, given that so much of Edward’s building work in Littlehampton, Mount Barker and Stirling has been erased, often by unsympathetic development.

Edward must have been doing well financially.  On 7th March 1866 he purchased a third Littlehampton allotment, this time in Thomas Biddles’ Section 4428, Lot 11 comprising 2 roods. I assume he purchased it direct from Thomas Biddles. 58  I do not know whether he developed it commercially.

Edward may recognised the development potential of Mount Barker through his work there.  In 1866 he purchased Allotments 170, 171 and 172 in Macfarlane Terrace in the Township of Mount Barker.  Together, these three Lots comprised 14 acres 25 perches. 59  It would seem that Edward did not develop these allotments, but fenced them as one paddock and grew hay on them. 60

As railway construction accelerated, Edward won a large tender in 1868 from the office of the Engineer-in-Chief to supply 2,000 posts at Adelaide Station at £7/4/6 per 100 – a substantial contract value of around £1,485.  However, he was unsuccessful in his 1869 tender for the supply of posts to the SA Railways. 61

While business was going well for Edward, family life was a different matter.  At this point I need to take a detour to tell a story about the Teague and Knight families in Langhorne Creek.

The Teague and Knight families in Langhorne Creek and Township of Kent

My 3 x great grandfathers Edward Teague and John Knight had much in common. They shared a Cornish heritage, both lived in Pengelly in the 1840s and both worked at the Delabole quarry.  As mentioned earlier, Edward’s eldest daughter Mary Jane Teague married John’s eldest son Thomas Skinner Knight in 1850.  But they were very different in other respects.  Edward could read and write and was a skilled artisan with experience in running his own business.  He was born and lived in relatively large villages and towns such as Truro, Redruth and Penzance.  His children were literate.  In contrast, John could not sign his name. 62  Despite his decade as a quarry man at Delabole, John was originally an agricultural labourer from a long line of agricultural workers.  I have traced John’s ancestors back to around 1707 and all were agricultural labourers in the rural parish of St Minver in Cornwall.  His father Henry had been apprenticed in husbandry aged 10 years.63  Such apprenticeships were a family pattern and I suspect that John Knight was also apprenticed in husbandry when he was around 10 or 11 years, but further research is needed to prove this. 64

In 1854, Edward bought two allotments in the Township of Kent from Friend Clegget of Mount Barker for £23/10/00.  Lot 75 was one acre located on section 3555 in the Hundred of Freeling (later Langhorne’s Bridge).  Lot 66 was around 4 acres located on Section 3551 in the Hundred of Strathalbyn (later Langhorne’s Creek). 65  Lot 66 was adjacent to a one-acre church reserve donated by Friend Cleggett on which a new Wesleyan Methodist chapel was subsequently opened in November 1857. 66

These lots were essentially farming land.  Having followed Edward’s life and land dealings closely, I am confident that he was not a farmer or interested in farming other than acquiring farming land to assist his children whenever he could.

Here’s my hypothesis based on what I know so far.

John Knight and his family struggled to find a foothold in South Australia.  After initially settling in Littlehampton in 1847, John and his family ... sold out there, and then went below Mount Barker to work for a Mrs. Seymour. 67  I cannot be sure who this particular ‘Mrs Seymour’ was, but it is possible she was related to Henry Seymour, an early pioneer of the Mount Barker District.

Edward saw John Knight and his family, including his daughter Mary Jane, struggling to find a secure livelihood and decided to help.  In 1854, he bought the two allotments in the Township of Kent (which later merged into the Township of Langhorne Creek to the south). 68  John and Mary Ann Knight and their three children, Thomas Skinner, Mary Lucy and George Skinner and their families relocated to farm Edward’s land.  George Skinner was apprenticed to a Langhorne Creek shoemaker, Charles Bunn. 69  Four of Edward’s grandchildren were born in Langhorne Creek 1859 to 1867.

Despite its promise, Langhorne Creek was not kind to the Knight family.  John Knight’s house at Langhorne’s Bridge was burnt to the ground in 1862. 70  His granddaughter Mary Ann Knight, daughter of Mary Jane Teague, drowned in a well in 1863 aged two years. 71  Then in February 1865 John was run over by a dray laden with bricks at Belvidere, around 9 km from Langhorne Creek, and died aged 56 years. 72   His grandson Alfred John Miller died less than a month later aged one year and was buried at the churchyard of Langhorne Creek Wesleyan chapel with his grandfather John. 73

With two children and another on the way, 26-year-old George Skinner Knight bought two 1⁄4 acre blocks in the Township of Kent in May 1865 to set up his shoe-making business, paying £17/10/0. 74   In September 1865, he took out a £50/0/0 mortgage on these two blocks.75

In October 1865, John Knight’s widow Mary Ann and two of her children, Thomas Skinner and Mary Lucy, regrouped after their losses and bought four adjacent blocks of land in the Township of Langhorne Creek, 76 while continuing to farm Edward’s land as well as additional rented land.  In May 1866, George Skinner Knight brought his two lots in the Township of Kent under the Real Property Act and sold them, 77 probably to help his family financially.

The next year, 1867, John’s widow Mary Ann, by now listed as a farmer at Langhorne Creek, lost her home and many of her possessions in a big Langhorne Creek flood. 78

Note slight misalignment of roads across the two separate Township maps caused by scale differences.

She became insolvent, 79 had to give up her rented farmland, 80 and paid out her creditors in part. 81

By the end of 1867, the Knight family seems to have given up the dream of establishing themselves as yeoman farmers and began re-locating to Reedy Creek, with the men and possibly the older boys, working at the Tungkillo/ Reedy Creek mine.

The final straw came when Thomas Skinner Knight, John’s first son and the husband of Mary Jane Teague, died in an accident at the Reedy Creek Mine in September 1869, aged 36 years, leaving seven children ranging in ages from one to 17 years. 82  With the loss of two male bread-winners, the large Knight family was forced to disperse and find a livelihood elsewhere: some went to the new copper mining town of Cobar in NSW, some to Bowhill on the Murray, some to Kalgoorlie in Western Australia while some returnedExhibit 15: Mary Jane Knight (nee Teague), eldest child of Edward Teague & Susannah Pascoe, widow of John Knight. Photo from Dawn Elder, “Knight Family History”, 1990. to Littlehampton.  This was the end of a united Knight family living and working together in South Australia.

In 1870-1871, Edward brought his land in the Township of Kent under the Real Property Act and sold it. 83  This was the end of Edward’s venture into Langhorne Creek.

Edward and Susannah’s widowed daughter Mary Jane Knight, now aged 36, returned to Littlehampton and brought up her four youngest children there, presumably with financial assistance from her father Edward, while her three older sons went to work cutting poles for the Overland Telegraph Line for a year, 84  before establishing themselves in Cobar NSW.

In 1883 Edward brought Lot 18 in Littlehampton under the Real Property Act and transferred it to Mary Jane and her youngest son, Thomas Skinner Knight junior.  After Thomas Skinner junior died of typhus in Cobar in 1891 aged 22, Mary Jane held Lot 18 in her own right.  It is likely that she left Littlehampton after this to join her five surviving sons and her mother-in-law Mary Ann in Cobar.

On 19th January 1894, Mary Jane transferred Lot 18 to her mother Susannah.

After Susannah died in July 1894, the Littlehampton Lot 18 passed to Mary Jane’s sister Matilda Hansen.  On 10th March 1902,  Matilda, by now firmly established in Stirling, sold it to James Alfred Coppin.  It had been in the Teague family for 51 years.

An almost empty nest

By 1872, all Edward and Susannah’s children had married, except for their youngest daughter Matilda who did not marry until 1880. 85

In 1861, Louisa Teague married Nicholas Coad, a Cornish widower with four children. 86  They initially settled in Dairy Flat (now Torrens Vale), Yankalilla where her sister Amelia had settled some years earlier, and they had a daughter.  But Nicholas died 18 months after they were married and Louisa returned to her family in Littlehampton.  I have not researched whether Louisa also cared for Jane and Catherine Coad, the two youngest children of Nicholas Coad and his first wife Elizabeth Martin Symons.  In 1868 Louisa married JohnExhibit 16: Interior of St James Church, Blakiston, Mount Barker, South Australia.

As mentioned previously, Lucretia Weller (nee Teague) died of epilepsy in 1864.

In 1869, Selina Teague married John Steven Nicholas. 89  They lived in Crafers until around 1880 before settling in Piccadilly where they raised their ten children.  They seem to have prospered.  When John Steven Nicholas died in 1914, he left an estate worth £14,400. 90

In 1870, Charles Teague married Sarah Rebecca Wright of Crafers at St James Church Blakiston and in 1872 James Henry Teague married Eliza Miels also at St James Blakiston.  Eliza’s family were successful brewers in Littlehampton, taking over the brewery established by Benjamin Gray. 91

Both Charles and James Henry set their eyes on a farming life in the newly opened lands to the north, and with Edward’s help, the brothers went on to become successful farmers in the Hundreds of Walloway, Oladdie and Yalpara, but more of that later.

Making the move from Littlehampton to Stirling

At the start of the 1870s, Edward and Susannah decided to relocate from Littlehampton to Stirling. 

Having sold his two parcels in the Township of Kent by early 1871, Edward then purchased 52 acres in Section 46 in the Hundred of Noarlunga from Richard Dixon Hawkins in July 1871.  This land was on the northern side of today’s business centre of Stirling, bounded by what is today the South Eastern Freeway, Mount Barker Road, and Garrod Crescent.  Hawkins had paid £801 for all of Section 46 (155 acres) back in 1854, so I expect that Edward would have paid a substantial sum 17 years later for his portion. 92

On 1 Jan 1873 Edward mortgaged his portion of Section 46 to Henry Timmins, but the mortgage was discharged a year later. 93  I think Edward disliked debt.  In November 1873 he put his Littlehampton home and land up for auction, 94  but it does not seem to have sold. 95  It is always possible that Edward owned land in Littlehampton in addition to the Lots 11, 13 and 18 that I have identified, but I have found no records for that.

By the end of 1872 Edward, Susannah and Matilda had moved to Stirling.  Charles and Sarah Rebecca may have moved earlier as the birth of their first child was registered there in 1871.  James Henry and Eliza may have remained in Littlehampton until their first child was born in 1874.  In March 1874, Edward sold Lot 11 in Littlehampton to John Rounsevell. 96  Then, in May 1874 he sold Lots 170-173 in Mount Barker to William Rollison, Corporal of Police in Mount Barker. 97

At this point Edward owned no land other than his 52 acres in Stirling and his 1851 Littlehampton lots.  I believe he treated land as a bank account, holding on to his reserves until he needed to make a withdrawal (i.e. a sale or lease).  Unlike the gentlemen of Adelaide who bought Section 45, 98  Edward did not lay out a development plan for his portion.  He did not sub-divide it into neat blocks of specified sizes and sell off.  This helps explain why the history of the development of the northern area of the business district of Stirling today is so difficult to track.

Madness perhaps, but I set myself the task of tracking what happened to Edward’s portion in Stirling between 1871 when he originally bought it and 1967 when the last parcel of Stirling land held by the Teague family passed out of the family’s hands – a period of 96 years.  Little did I appreciate the scale of the task.  Attachment 1 records the fruits of my labour.

Edward helps his sons head north

From 1873 when the Teague family moved from Littlehampton to Stirling, Edward’s sons Charles and James Henry began to acquire land in the newly opened country lands in the mid and upper north of South Australia and establish themselves as farmers.  They started with credit selections in the Hundred of Caltowie, and then moved further north to the Hundreds of Walloway, Coomorroo, Oladdie and Yalpara, each time seeking the economies of scale necessary for successful farming in the harsh lands of the north.

Edward helped them get established.  On 21st August 1876, he made a credit selection of Section 46 in the Hundred of Coomooroo containing 640 acres which Charles farmed. 99  On 26th March 1883 he transferred his lease to his son Charles on the grounds of physical incapacity.

In May 1883, Charles Teague took out five different leases totalling 2,958 acres in the Hundred of Yalpara.  At the same time, his father Edward took out three leases totalling 3,026 acres. 100

In his will Edward left all his assets to his wife Susannah, but those were valued at under £220, a low sum for such a large landholder and successful businessman. 101  Given his sons’ significant expansion in land acquisition in the Hundreds of Yalpara, Oladdie and Bendleby from 1884, it is reasonable to conclude that they received some assets before their father’s death, as well as after his death. 102

Religious affiliations and inclinations

Edward was baptised in an early Independent Congregational church in Truro. 103  Susannah was baptised in St Marys Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Truro.   Their first three children were baptised into the Arminian Bible Christian church (the Bible Christians being an off-shoot of Wesleyan Methodism) at the family home in Redruth, Cornwall.  Their daughter Matilda was married in the Bible Christian manse in Franklin Street, Adelaide. 104  Their son Charles and his family attended services conducted by the Primitive Methodists in Orroroo and joined with others in 1878 to buy a site for the Primitive Methodist chapel in Orroroo. 105  Their granddaughter May Nicholas (daughter of Selina Teague) is buried in the Mount Lofty Bible Christian Cemetery at Uraidla. 106  Their daughter Louisa was married at the Adelaide residence of Rev. Robert Haining, the founding Presbyterian minister of the Church of Scotland in South Australia. 107  The Teague family’s religious inclinations were clearly Independent and non-conformist in nature, even though three of Edward’s children were married at St James Anglican Church at Blakiston, perhaps because of convenience rather than allegiance.

While here is not the place for a dissertation on non-conformism or religious history, the Teague religious heritage may offer some insights into the family not available from other sources.

Those arriving in South Australia in the first years came from five major Christian groups – Anglicans (of the Established Church of England), Nonconformists (or Dissenters), Roman Catholics, Scottish Presbyterians and German Lutherans (from 1838).  The Nonconformists were further divided into Methodists, Baptists, Congregationalists and a few smaller sects. 108

The Teague family’s religious affiliations draw largely from the three main branches of Methodism: Wesleyan, Primitive Methodist and Bible Christian, with a leaning towards Bible Christianity.

In rural districts, church communities started by lay preachers in their own homes developed into churches with an ordained minister responsible for a Methodist circuit.  The essential requirements for local preachers, mostly men, were loyalty to the church and love of the Bible.  Evangelical zeal and widespread use of lay preachers contributed to the rapid growth of Methodism.  Whereas in 1846 10% of the population was Methodist, by 1901 Methodists comprised one quarter of South Australia’s population, the highest proportion of any Australian state.  Towards the end of the nineteenth century Methodism had become a comprehensive community embracing wealthy city businessmen, some pastoralists, many settlers in new farming areas, Cornish miners, and a variety of shopkeepers and professional people. 109

There are some distinct characteristics of Cornish Bible Christians that the Teague family may have shared.  These included a focus on the needs of poor, illiterate rural labourers and miners (at least in Cornwall); equality of ministers and laity, by-passing the traditional clergy-laity hierarchy; preaching with fervour, zeal and conviction; women preachers; recurring and charismatic personal revival; and a biblical bent. 110  And, I suggest, commitment to a clear distinction between church and state.

Payton (2016) argues:

Methodists were not as socially staid as their detractors sometimes suspected.  They may have avoided public houses, dance halls and theatres but often enjoyed a vibrant social and cultural life, conducted through the medium of the Methodist church – everything from concerts and picnics to outings and visits to the seaside – as well as frequenting temperance hotels and being active in Freemasonry and friendly societies ...  By no means as narrow-minded or introvert as their critics suggested, South Australia’s Methodists were thus actively engaged in the community of which they were so conspicuously a part. 111

The dryness of an analysis based on Edward’s land records could be countered by the thought that he and Susannah were inclined toward egalitarianism and religious revivalism.

Soon after the founding of the Christian Colonist newspaper in 1878, Edward became an agent for it in Stirling East. 112  This was an undenominational (sic) religious journal bringing together news from many non-conformist churches – Presbyterian, Congregational, Baptist, Bible Christian, Primitive Methodist and Wesleyan. 113

In October 1877, the Stirling Bible Christian Chapel Minutes report that Edward was to be approached asking for contributions to a new chapel. 114  I do not know if he contributed financially. 115  However, in October 1879 it was reported that he had given a piece of land for a Congregational church in Stirling East. 116  On 20th November 1879 Edward transferred a 1⁄2 acre of his Stirling land to the Congregational Union and Home Mission of South Australia Incorporated of Adelaide (marked Parcel D on Exhibit 23 in Attachment 1).  I am not clear why the new church was not built on this land but, instead, a decision was made to build on Allotment No. 7, Crafers Park estate with a frontage of 95 feet to Orley Avenue, obtained for £95. 117  The block that Edward had already transferred to the Congregational Union had a frontage of 150 feet to Mount Barker Road.  Edward’s lot was transferred back to him on 15th May 1882 by the Congregational Union and possibly in lieu, he contributed £50 to the building of the new church on Orley Avenue.118  This parcel of land remained in the Teague family until 1895, when it passed to Orbell Harris Golding, blacksmith of Stirling West.  In 1902 it was bought back into the Teague family by Charles Frederick Hansen and held intact until 1914 when a small portion was transferred to John Howard and Frederick Oliver Howard, wheelwrights, and William Alfred Woodgate, blacksmith, all of Crafers, as tenants-in-common, while the remainder was retained by the family. 119

Edward seems to have had an interest in working with children both through the Sabbath School movement and the Band of Hope which was the children’s arm of the temperance movement.  In February 1879, he gave an address on Sabbath School work on the 20th anniversary of the Bible Christian Sabbath School, Stirling East, 120  and his daughter Matilda played the organ for the occasion. 121

As with so many Bible Christians, he was an active member of the temperance movement.  He was President of the Stirling Temperance Society in 1875, which was reported ... to be in a prosperous condition with 114 members on the books. 122  He presided over and actively supported gatherings of the popular Band of Hope in Stirling, 123 which helped educate children in the ways of temperance.  He was friends with Samuel and Mary Atwell of the Temperance Hotel, Stirling and conducted the funeral service for Mrs Atwell in July 1876. 124

Life and then death in Stirling

From this distance, and in the absence of any first-hand family histories, Edward and Susannah’s lives in Stirling seemed to have revolved around three things: family, business dealings and the church.  I do not think he played an active role in political life, although he did support the successful candidature of John Dunn of Mount Barker for election to the South Australian Legislative Council in 1869, 125  and in 1882 he joined a committee of electors in Stirling East (along with Simeon Moss and John Carbis) to secure the return of Thomas King to the House of Assembly. 126

On the family front, grandchildren just kept coming.  Edward and Susannah had 67 grandchildren, with most surviving to adulthood. 127  In 1880, his daughter Matilda aged 32 married Charles Frederick (Fredrik) Hansen aged 30. 128  Charles Frederick was born in Norway and had immigrated to Australia around 1875. 129  Matilda and Charles Frederick lived with Edward and Susannah in Stirling and went on to have four children, all born in Stirling West.

On the business front, Edward continued to work as a mason, with an annual entry to that effect in trade directories between 1875 and 1883. 130  I have found no records of him undertaking further contracting for public works.  His land dealings – sales in Noarlunga and purchases in Coomooroo and Yalpara – would have occupied a good deal of his time.

But Edward was getting on, and I believe he became unwell during 1882 and decided to put his business affairs in order.  In January 1882 he sold a 1⁄2 acre block of his section 46 land to Lloyd Webb, 131 and in April 1882 he sold 25 acres of Section 46 in Noarlunga to William Rendall Cave. 132

Edward retained around 12 1⁄2 acres of his original 52 acres and in June 1882 transferred it to himself and his wife Susannah Teague as joint tenants for their lives, with the caveat that after the death of both of them, the land would pass to their two sons, Charles Teague and James Henry Teague, farmers in Orroroo and to their daughter Matilda and her husband. 133  There were no transactions on this land between 1882 and 1894 when Susannah died. 134  As mentioned earlier, he transferred Lot 18 in Littlehampton to his daughter Mary Jane Knight in January 1883. 135  In March 1883 he transferred his lease over Section 46 in the Hundred of Coomooroo to his son Charles Teague. 136

By June 1883, there were clear signs that Edward was unwell.  In a local court case brought against his son‐in‐law Charles Frederick Hansen by Thomas Joshua Lewis, two things emerged in the lengthy newspaper reports of the case.  The first was that Edward was not in a fit state of mind to give evidence before the court, and that neither he nor his wife were in a fit state of health to travel from Stirling to Mount Barker.  The second was that Edward’s son‐in‐law Charles Frederick Hansen was acting on Edward’s behalf in at least some business matters. 137

Edward died on 30th July 1883 in Stirling West aged 74 years. 138 He was buried in St James Cemetery, Blakiston.

In May 1884, 10 months after Edward’s death, his three leases in the Hundred of Yalpara were transferred to his son James Henry. 139

Matilda Teague had married Charles Frederick Hansen just three years before Edward died.  Whatever his background was before his marriage, Charles Frederick worked with Edward in the stonemason business while Edward was alive, and ran it after he died.  From 1888 until he died in 1921, Charles Frederick usually described himself as a mason in Stirling West. 140

Susannah Teague passed away in Stirling in 1894, at the age of 84, 141  and was buried with Edward in the churchyard of St James Church Blakiston.  Her estate, valued at £156, was left to her daughter Matilda Hansen (nee Teague), 142  with caveats that ensured two thirds of the remaining Stirling land passed to her brothers Charles and James Henry. 143

Matilda and Charles Frederick Hansen continued to live in Stirling until Charles Frederick died in 1921, after which she moved to Adelaide where she died in 1936.

Attachment 1 tracks how the Teague land in Stirling was progressively sold off between 1894 and 1967.

Section 46, Hundred of Noarlunga was granted to Richard Dixon Hawkins on 18th January 1854. 145

Exhibit 22: Richard Dixon Hawkins, the owner of Aldgate Pump Hotel, c1870. Photo from State Library of South Australia, Portrait Collection.Hawkins was born in London on 26th April 1818. 146  He married Ann Civiall at St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street London on 28th December 1841, 147 and a month later Richard and Ann set sail from London, arriving in Port Adelaide per the ship Lady Fitzherbert on 12th July 1842.

Hawkins was licensee of eleven hotels during the 34 years of his life in South Australia.  His association with the Adelaide Hills began as the landlord of the Crafers Inn 1843-46 after which he moved around various country hotels.  He returned to the Crafers Inn in 1854-56 and then again in 1860-63. 148  In 1864 he built his own inn at Aldgate which he named after the Aldgate Pump on the corner of Leadenhall and Fenchurch Streets in London near where he was born, and the township of Aldgate grew around this hostelry. 149  It was for his role as founder and landlord of the Aldgate Pump Hotel that he was most widely known in his own day.  He sold the hotel in 1875 and moved to the Hagen Arms at Echunga where he died in 1877.

Part 1: Hawkins to Edward Teague

In July 1871 Hawkins sold 52 acres to Edward Teague (coloured yellow in Exhibit 21). Edward did not sell his portion according to any plan or formal subdivision, which is why the parcel-by-parcel account recounted in the following pages has been so challenging.

Parcel A (1874)
In May 1874 Edward Teague sold his first parcel on Section 46, a 1⁄2 acre (2 roods) block fronting Mount Barker Road near today’s Garrod Crescent. This sale was to EDWARD NORTHCOTE MAY, blacksmith. 150  Edward May was born in Lanhydrock, Cornwall, the son of Thomas May (blacksmith) and Elizabeth (nee Northcoat, sic) who resided in nearby Trebayn. 151  Edward Northcote May arrived in South Australia on 15th April 1866 per the ship Atalanta, aged 21. 152  He married Elizabeth Harriett Bowden on 4th December 1869. 153  They appear not to have had children. (Continued in Parcel C below.)

Parcel B (1877)
In August 1877 Edward Teague sold 9 acres 3 roods to SIMEON MOSS, manufacturer of Mount Barker. In October 1879, Moss transferred an unspecified portion of the land back to Edward Teague but six weeks later, on 20th November 1879, Edward Teague transferred the same area of land back to Simeon Moss. I do not understand the reason for this back and forth dealing. 154

Simeon Moss was baptised on 22 Apr 1821 at St Mary Abbots Church, Kensington, London. His father Thomas, a tailor, and his mother Frances were then living in The Terrace in the Parish of Kensington. 155  I have not found a Passenger List for his arrival with his family but newspaper reports suggest 1850.  By September 1851 he was establishing himself as a cabinet-maker and storekeeper in Gawler Street, Mount Barker. 156

The land he bought from Edward Teague in what was then called Stirling East was used to grow fruit and by 1879 Simeon had become a jam-maker. 157  In 1881 he bought an additional 11 acres in Section 47 from William Rendall Cave to extend his fruit-growing. 158  His Wirrilda Jam Factory is well described in the newspapers of the time. 159

In 1879, Edward Teague and Simeon Moss asked the Mount Barker Council to have a road opened through their property from Mount Barker Road to Sawmill Road.  Council agreed to inspect, with a payment of £37/17/00. 160  I presume this to be the Old Mount Barker Road.  I believe that Sawmill Road became Old Carey Gully Road, 161 but I cannot see on a map where such a new road through their properties would run.  Further research may be warranted.

In August 1899, Simeon Moss transferred a small parcel of his land (31 perches) fronting what is now Mount Barker Road to his daughter AMELIA MOSS. 162  On 5th July 1910 she sold it to JANE SCHANTZ, wife of Niels Morgansen Schantz, gardener of Piccadilly.  Jane died in 1912 and the small parcel transferred to her husband, Niels.  Niels died in 1925 and the title then was transferred to ARTHUR THOMAS CAPON, a returned soldier of Stirling West on 29th April 1927. 163  The area became known as Capon’s Corner, located on Mount Barker Road at the corner with Pomona Road which had just been established. 164  Capon’s Tea Rooms were however operating here from at least August 1926, 165 so Capon may have been leasing the property before he bought it.

Simeon Moss died at Stirling West in 1903 aged 82, 166 and various newspapers printed detailed obituaries which are not replicated here. 167  He was buried in St James Cemetery, Blakiston, with Lloyd Webb serving as undertaker (see note on Parcel E below). 168

After Simeon’s death, the land passed to his four children ARTHUR MOSS, 169AMELIA MOSS, AGNES EDLIN (nee Moss) and BERTHA ROSE SHARLAND (nee Moss). 170  In 1909 they sold it to WILLIAM SANDERS who then sold the remaining 8 acres to MICHAEL FRANCIS MORAN of Stirling West, butcher, later in the same year. Moran held it intact until 1927 when he sold a 4 -acre parcel running from Simla Avenue to Vista Terrace to HERMAN FREDERICK SHARRAD. 171  After Moran’s death in 1954, the southern parcel from Mount Barker Road to Simla Avenue, by now around 3 acres, was transferred to MESNIL’S FOOD MART LTD in 1957. 172

Certificates of Title indicate that some of Simeon Moss’s original nine-acre parcel was taken for Pomona Road and Beaumont Ave. 173

Parcel C (1879)
On 3rd March 1879, Edward Teague sold to EDWARD NORTHCOTE MAY additional land surrounding the small Parcel A that May had bought two years before, bringing May’s total holding to 3 acres 1 rood 30 perches. 174  Edward Northcote May continued his trade as a blacksmith in Stirling for almost two decades.  His wife Elizabeth died at Stirling West in 1896. 175  Still a resident of Stirling West, he died at the home of his sister-in-law in North Adelaide two years later, aged 55. 176

He left his estate, valued at £255, to HENRY LAST, the husband of his sister-in-law Mary Ann Last (nee Bowden), to his niece Henrietta /Harriett Last and nephews John Last and Edward May Last. 177  In August 1898 Edward May’s Stirling property passed to HENRY LAST and his son JOHN LAST, and immediately passed to JOHN LAST. In March 1902 it transferred to JAMES GARROD of Stirling West, carpenter and undertaker. 178  It was subdivided in 1912. 179

Parcel D (1879)

This 1⁄2 acre (two rood) parcel was transferred by Edward Teague to the CONGREGATIONAL UNION & HOME MISSION OF SA INC in November 1879. 180

Mr. Ed. Teague had given a piece of land for a church at Stirling East. 181   A friend at Stirling East having offered to your committee a piece of land about half an acre in extent for church purposes your committee gladly accepted Mr. Teague's offer, and steps are being taken for the legal transfer of the land for the use of the denomination. 182

I am not clear why the new church was not built on this land but, instead, a decision was made to build on Allotment No. 7, Crafers Park estate with a frontage of 95 feet to Orley Avenue, obtained for £95. 183  The block that Edward had already transferred to the Congregational Union had a frontage of 150 feet to Mount Barker Road.  Edward’s parcel was transferred back to him on 15th May 1882 by the Congregational Union and he subsequently contributed at least £50 to the building of the new church on Orley Avenue. 184

Exhibit 24: Diagram of Parcel D showing (in yellow) the final portion of Teague land to pass out of the
Hansen-Teague family in 1967. Extract from CT 4232/147.
This parcel was transferred to Edward Teague’s wife Susannah Teague in August 1883, just after Edward’s death, for her sole and separate use.  On her death in 1894, it then transferred to their sons Charles Teague and James Henry Teague, both farmers in Orroroo, on 4th April 1884.  They sold it to JOHN ORBELL HARRIS GOLDING, blacksmith of Stirling West in June 1895. 185

In 1902, Golding sold it to Edward Teague’s son-in-law CHARLES FREDERICK HANSEN, so it was back in the family.  Golding seems to have rented it from Hansen after this date.  A dispute between Golding and Hansen over Golding’s non-payment of rent for his shop went to court in 1905, and Golding was ordered to quit the premises he had been renting. 186

In 1914, Hansen sold a small portion of the parcel (14 perches) fronting Mount Barker Road with a right of way to JOHN HOWARD and FREDERICK OLIVER HOWARD Wheelwrights and WILLIAM ALFRED WOODGATE Blacksmith, all of Crafers.  After John Howard died in March 1919, his third share passed to his widow ELIZABETH HOWARD who in turn transferred it to her son FREDERICK OLIVER HOWARD and WILLIAM ALFRED WOODGATE.  Frederick Oliver Howard then transferred his interest to WILLIAM ALFRED WOODGATE in 1923.   Woodgate sold it in 1946 to LILLIAN MAY WATERS, and she held it until 1954 when it was transferred to the BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE STATE BANK OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. 187

At the end of 1914, Hansen still retained 1 rood 26 perches. 188 In 1919 he sold 1 rood 3 perches to the BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE STATE BANK OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA.  Multiple different owners followed. 189

However, the portion coloured yellow in Exhibit 24 below (23 perches) was retained in the Hansen-Teague family until 1967.  After Charles Frederick Hansen died in September 1921, 190  this portion passed to his wife MATILDA HANSEN.  She held it until her death in 1936. 191  It then passed to her four children as tenants-in-common.  As the children progressively died, it passed down to grandchildren.  In August 1967 it was sold to RAYMOND WILLIAM SOMMER of Aldgate, Garage Proprietor. 192  After 96 years, the last of the original Teague land passed out of the family.  On 16th October 1984, Sommer sold it to THE SHELL COMPANY OF AUSTRALIA. 193  It is now 69 Mount Barker Road.

Parcel E (1882)

Edward Teague leased this plot (1 rood 37 perches or almost 1⁄2 acre) to JOHN CARBIS for a term of four years from 27th September 1880. 194  John Carbis had been the proprietor of the Aldgate Pump Inn on Mount Barker Road 1878-1879 and the Stanley Bridge Hotel at Grunthal [Verdun] 1881-1882, 195 and before that had worked for many years with J. Hill & Co, Mail Contractors and Coach Proprietors which were located opposite the land he leased from Edward Teague. 196  He married Jane Adelaide Hubble in 1871. 197

John Carbis had arrived in 1849 from Cornwall as a one-year old with his parents and five siblings per the ship Prince Regent. 198  This was the same ship that Edward and Susannah had arrived on, so it is possible that Edward knew John’s parents, Pascoe Row[e] Carbis and Esther Bramble Carbis (nee Semmens) at least from the voyage. 199  Pascoe Row Carbis was just two years younger than Edward, 200  so they would have considered themselves contemporaries.  The Carbis family was living in Penzance at the time of the 1841 UK Census, as was Edward’s family, 201  so the families may have met there.  On the Prince Regent Passenger List, the birthplace of both the Teague family and the Carbis family was recorded as the Parish of Madron in Cornwall, just to the northwest of Penzance.  The most curious aspect of this discussion is the use of ‘Pascoe’ as a first name, given Edward’s wife Susannah was born a Pascoe.  Use of a surname as a first name in subsequent generations was not uncommon in Cornwall.  Coincidence perhaps, but potential links between Pascoe Carbis and Susannah Pascoe are worthy of further research.

Chardon reports that a condition of the lease was that John Carbis, in the first year, was to build two rooms onto the existing dwelling erected there, and that it was to be built of stone procured from Edward Teague’s land on Section 46. 202  Edward Teague may have built the existing stone dwelling, and this was a very clever way for Edward to both clear his land and add value to it.

I think that John Carbis may have become ill not long after signing the lease, and on 11th October 1881 the lease was transferred to ROBERT BOWES, contractor of Stirling East. 203  John Carbis died in July 1883, reportedly after a long illness, aged 35 years. 204  He left a widow and an estate of £250. 205

I do not know if Carbis established a refreshment room of any sort, although his previous experience as a publican suggests that is possible.  But Bowes certainly did and the Bowes Refreshment Rooms operated until around 1886, 206 and were the regular meeting place for Stirling West Institute Committee in 1883. It was the location of Stirling’s first library.207

As part of the lease, Bowes also rented a paddock behind the premises, which allowed him to run three cows in Edward Teague's paddock for the term of lease, and this provision was transferred from Carbis to Bowes. 208  Very fresh milk indeed at Bowes Refreshment Rooms!

Like Chardon, I believe that this was the same land that Edward Teague sold to LLOYD WEBB, carpenter and undertaker of Stirling West, in January 1882. 209  The location of Webb’s property is clearly stated as opposite the then Bank of Adelaide. 210  Chardon records that Webb paid £125/0/0 for the land. 211

Lloyd Webb, carpenter, arrived in Port Adelaide per the ship Rodney on 2nd December 1877, aged 25.  His conduct on the journey from Plymouth was judged to be “Very Good.” 212  I have not thoroughly researched Lloyd’s origins, but believe he was born in 1853 in the parish of Whitchurch, Hampshire, England.  His father William was a Carpenter Journeyman, and his mother Jane was a Schoolmistress, as was her mother Ann Keel. 213

It proved difficult to trace the early history of the piece of Edward Teague’s land that Webb bought in 1882.  Two facts help. One is that Lloyd Webb aged 28 married Alice Spencer aged 18 on 31st May 1882 at the Crafers residence of the bride’s father, John Spencer. 214  This is relevant because the Spencer family figures prominently in the records for this land.  Another is that Lloyd Webb seems to have conducted his carpentry and later undertaking business in Stirling in two phases.  Phase 1 began towards the end of 1881 with the establishment of his building business, 215 then his entry into the undertaking business around 1886, 216 through his attempts to sell the business from March 1886 and ending with a mortgagee sale of his house and land in November 1886. 217  During this phase, his two children were born in Stirling West: Rodney Webb in 1882, 218 and Beatrice Webb in 1885. 219  Then there is a hiatus in the records. Phase 2 seems to have involved a re-boot of Webb’s carpentry and undertaking business in Stirling from 1891.  For the next 30 years, until the end of 1920, he carried on his business, notwithstanding the premature death of his wife Alice in Stirling West in 1892 at the age of 28 years, 220 after two years of illness. 221

Armed with this contextual information, we can return to the land records.  A week after purchasing the land from Edward Teague, Webb took out a mortgage on it on 26th January 1882, and a further mortgage in August 1882.  The mortgagee for both was his father-in-law, John Spencer.  Less than a year later, Webb’s mortgage was discharged.  But he immediately took out a further mortgage in June 1883, again with John Spencer as mortgagee.  A year later, Webb sold the property to ALBERT EDWARD KING, a timber merchant of Adelaide on 7th June 1886.  A foreclosure order in favour of John Spencer was entered on 12th December 1887, suggesting perhaps that Spencer had made a loan to King to purchase the property, and subsequently acquired the title of it when King defaulted.  John Spencer died in October 1904 and the land transferred to his sons JAMES AND BENJAMIN SPENCER who almost immediately transferred it to ANNIE ALMA CAVE, daughter of William Rendall Cave.  Annie Alma Cave immediately leased it to Lloyd Webb on 23rd December 1904 for two years.  Then, in 1907, she sold it to LLOYD WEBB.  Webb sold it to DOUGLAS PERCY BENNETT, motor proprietor of Crafers on 25th May 1922. 222

I believe it is likely that Lloyd Webb conducted his carpentry and undertaking business from these premises almost continuously from 1882 to 1922, irrespective of whether he owned, leased or rented them. I found no evidence that he occupied other premises in Stirling. Chardon’s book contains a splendid photo of Lloyd Webb’s carpentry and undertaking business in the early 1900s. 223

Lloyd Webb died at Stirling West in June 1928 aged 75 years and was buried with his wife Alice in Payneham Cemetery. 224

Webb arranged the funerals of many of the citizens of Stirling. Perhaps most notable was the funeral for George Woodroffe Goyder, the Surveyor-General of South Australia after whom Goyder’s Line is named. 225

I have spent more time with Lloyd Webb than I should have.  Perhaps this was because he also arranged the funeral of my 3 x great grandmother Susannah Teague in July 1894, 226 and his son Rodney Webb was the informant for Susannah’s death certificate.227

Parcel F (1882)

In March 1882, Edward Teague sold around half of his portion of Section 46 (25 acres 20 perches) to WILLIAM RENDALL CAVE, grain merchant and shipping agent of Adelaide, together with an unrestricted right of way (private road) to his property from what is now Mount Barker Road between Teague Parcels H and K and Simeon Moss’s Parcel B. 228

William Rendall Cave was in every respect a self-made success story.  He was not born with a silver spoon, but he was not born poor.  He was not afraid of hard work or of getting his hands dirty.  In  addition to becoming a grain merchant and shipping agent, he was an importer, exporter, ostrich farmer, property developer, Marine Board chairman and owner of 5 steam tug boats.  He was a person of substance.  One obituary reported: Always cheerful and genial, he made many friends, and his uprightness and business acumen raised him to a high position in the mercantile world. 229

He was born in Stoke-under-Ham, Somersetshire, in 1841. 230  He arrived in South Australia possibly in 1848 or 1849 when he was around six years old, together with his father Charles, a yeoman farmer, his mother Susannah/ Susan (nee Darby), his only brother John Darby Cave and his nine sisters.  I have found no passenger lists for the Cave family, nor have other family history researchers. 231 William Rendall married Barbara Grierson in Adelaide in 1867. 232  They had a residence at Woodville, then Semaphore from around 1874 to 1890, then North Adelaide.  From 1883 they also had a large property called Pomona at Stirling East on Section 47.

William Rendall Cave held considerable land both in the Adelaide District and more widely, including the Hundred of Noarlunga.  The portion of the Section 46 land that Cave bought from Teague in March 1882 (Parcel F) bordered a portion of the Section 47 land that Cave had bought from Frederic Britten Burden in September 1881.  And in 1882 not only did Cave buy 25 acres from Edward Teague but he also bought, with two others, 30 acres within Section 46 bordered on the south by today’s Golding Road-Golding Lane, on the east by Gould Road and adjoining Edward Teague’s 52 acres to the west. 233

Interlude (1883-1894)

Exhibit 25: Balance of land in Section 46 owned by Edward Teague as at June 1882. Extract from CT 392/177, annotated with some current roads.When Edward Teague died in 1883, his Stirling land passed to his wife Susannah (as tenant-in-common).  This land was around 24% (12 acres 2 roods 33 perches) of Edward’s original 52 acres in Section 46 and is shown bounded in green in Exhibit 25 below, 234 containing all the parcels labelled G-M in Exhibit 23.

In January 1885, two separate caveats were lodged over this land. 235  I have not examined the caveats themselves but believe the central intent was that, after Susannah’s death, the Stirling land was to be split three ways between Edward and Susannah’s three children: Charles, James Henry and Matilda, with Matilda and her husband Charles Frederick Hansen each individually having around one-half of their third.  This would need to be verified by sighting the caveats.

There were no further sales of Teague land until after Susannah’s death in 1894, and her daughter Matilda Hansen was the sole executor of her will. 236

Caveat No. 187814 was withdrawn on 8th February 1895.  The next day, Charles and James Henry Teague transferred Parcel H to their brother-in-law Charles Frederick Hansen. 237

On 27th February 1895, Charles Teague and James Henry Teague became tenants-in-common over the remaining 8 acres 1 rood 20 perches shown as Parcels D (part), G, I, J, L, and M. Charles Teague retained Parcel K, with Caveat No. 187813. 238  This Caveat remained until August 1913 when it was withdrawn after Charles’ death.

Parcel G (1899)

In November 1899, Charles Teague and James Henry Teague as tenants-in-common sold 1⁄2 acre fronting Mount Barker Road to FRANK BURROWES RADFORD and HERBERT JAMES RADFORD, bootmakers of Stirling West. 239

Frank Burrowes Radford, was born at Bridgewater in 1864, 240 the son of William Radford and Sarah Radford (nee Kidner).  His younger brother Herbert James Radford was born there four years later. 241  Their father William had arrived in South Australia aged 27 from Somerset with his wife Sarah, aged 23 and two young children. 242  The family settled first in Uraidla, then Bridgewater (formerly Cox Creek Valley).  By around 1882, William was running his boot making business in both Bridgewater and in Stirling.

William was a Bible Christian preacher and a strong temperance advocate.  One of his obituaries noted:

Until Methodist union Mr. Radford was one of the most prominent laymen and local preachers in the Bible Christian Church. ... He had preached continuously for 69 years. As a visiting preacher he was highly esteemed in Methodist circles in many parts of the State. The Star of Hope Tent of Rechabites was formed by the deceased in 1863, and the first meeting, at Bridgewater was held in his house.  In 1868 he was elected a Past District Chief Ruler of the South Australian District of the Order. 243

William held a range of prominent civic positions in Stirling, including the second chairman of the Stirling District Council, and serving on Crafers District Council.  Chardon provides details on William’s purchase of land in Stirling in 1882, and on the initial purchase of land by Frank Burrowes Radford in 1893. 244

In late 1899 or early 1900, the Radford Brothers relocated their boot making business to their newly acquired block opposite Druid Avenue.

Both brothers married in their forties and after their father’s death: Charles Herbert in 1910, 245  and Frank Burrowes in 1911. 246  Both contributed to Stirling’s civic life.  Frank Burrowes was active on the Stirling Institute committee and served as its chairman. 247  He  also served as a councillor for Crafers District Council while his brother Herbert James served as an auditor for the Council. 248

In February 1915, Parcel G was transferred to Frank Burrowes Radford and his wife Esther Radford. 249  Frank continued his business here until ill-health caused his retirement and move to Parkside, probably in 1927.  His property, by now right in the heart of the main shopping centre of Stirling West, was fulsomely described in the various notices for sale.

For Sale, at Mount Lofty, in the lovely township of Stirling West, my well-known Property, consisting of 8 good rooms, including front shop, hall passage, enclosed back verandah with copper built in, underground tank of about 2.000 gallons, bathroom under verandah, well of water close by, woodshed to hold 8 tons wood, pigsty, trap-shed and stall, stable, G.I. tank, 600-gal., at stable, fowl-run. Land 70 ft. frontage by 5 chains 20 links deep, planted with apples, plum trees, pears, passion fruit, gooseberry, raspberry, black and red currant bushes.  Electric light alI throughout the house. 250

21 Jan 1928 the Parcel was transferred to EVA PERRY of Stirling West. She died in 1952 and it was eventually purchased by ERIC CHARLES PENBERTHY. 251

Frank Burrowes Radford died at Parkside in 1935, aged 71. 252  His brother Herbert James Radford died at Stirling West in 1937. 253  Herbert James is buried in Stirling Cemetery with his wife Emma Frances and their son Herbert Paul Radford.  So too are his second son Wilfred (Wilf) Kidner Radford, Wilf’s wife Jessie Irene Radford (nee Lofts) and his father William Radford, his mother Sarah Radford (nee Kidner) and his sister Emma Jane Radford.

Parcel H (1902)

The inter-connected journeys of the more northerly Parcels H and K out of the Teague family proved particularly complicated to track.

Exhibit 26: Extract from 1884-1885 Survey of northerly parcel of Section 46, Hd of Noarlunga originally purchased by Edward Teague in 1873.  Extract from SAILIS Plan Image LA10233, Hd of Noarlunga, part Section 46.Add a captionAs I researched the history of Parcel H closely, I came to question the statement in the 1997 Stirling District Heritage Survey that Two acres of land, owned by Charles Frederick Hansen, a mason, were purchased in February 1895 by William Randell Cave, 254 and that William Rendall Cave built and owned the heritage-listed house and stables at 7 Pomona Road, Stirling.  I have concluded that both these statements are incorrect, and I discuss this in detail in Attachment 2.

After Edward Teague died and all his land had passed to his wife Susannah Teague, his more northerly portion (adjoining Sections 2797 and 2798) was surveyed, with the survey report dated 20th March 1884 and subsequently annotated on 27th January 1885. 255   A  day after the annotation, on 28th January 1885, two caveats were added to the original Certificate of Title, as mentioned earlier. 256

Exhibit 27: Parcel H (bounded in green) owned by
Edward Teague & transferred by Charles Teague &
James Henry Teague to Charles Frederick Hansen in
1895. Extract from CT 594/135.
The 1884-85 survey is helpful because it shows the measured boundaries and area of Parcels H and K, and the location of these parcels relative to the land William Rendall Cave had bought from Edward Teague in 1882 (Parcel F), and proximity to Section 47 where Cave had established his summer residence Pomona.For ease of reading I have labelled the 1884-85 Survey (Exhibit 26) using the same parcel labelling system I have used throughout this Attachment.

As noted earlier, in February 1895, Charles Teague and James Henry Teague as tenants-in-common transferred Parcel H (2 acres 1 rood 29 perches including the Private Road) to their brother-in-law Charles Frederick Hansen, together with a right of way from Mount Barker Road through Parcel K to Parcel H. 257

Exhibit 28: Diagram showing the 3 perches of land (bounded in green) sold to William Rendall Cave by Charles Frederick Hansen in February 1895. Extract from CT 595/18.Three days later, on 12th February 1895, Hansen transferred to WILLIAM RENDALL CAVE a narrow sliver of land (3 perches or 75 square metres) of this parcel, bordering Section 2798 and running alongside what is now the South Eastern Freeway.

This transfer was probably to provide a direct access route from the west to the land that Cave had bought in 1882 (Parcel F). Clearly, the house and stables at 7 Pomona Road were not built on this sliver. These 3 perches were transferred from William Rendall Cave to FREDERICK CHARLES HOWARD in September 1907. 258

This left Charles Frederick Hansen with 2 acres 1 rood 26 perches, subject to two rights of way.

Exhibit 29: Diagram showing the land (bounded in green) retained by Charles Frederick Hansen 28 February 1895. Extract from CT 595/19.On 1st March 1895, Hansen mortgaged Parcel H to William Rendall Cave, and the mortgage was discharged on 3rd November 1902.  On the same day, Hansen sold Parcel H to EDWARD GIBBON WAKEFIELD, 259 who held it until October 1906, when it was transferred to FREDERICK CHARLES HOWARD.  After Howard’s death in 1919 it passed to Howard’s widow LUCY GRIERSON HOWARD (nee Cave), daughter of William Rendall Cave and to his son CHARLES ROY HOWARD.  CT 595/19 notes that ... Portion of the within land marked Private Road has been opened up as a New Road and a New Road opened adjoining the within portion of Section 46 on the south east. Vide confirmation of Road Order in Gazette of 6th December 1923.  As Chardon notes, it is indeed puzzling why there would be two adjoining roads, one of which would become Pomona Road in 1927. 260  After Charles Roy Howard died in 1935, Lucy Grierson Howard sold a portion of the land to CHARLOTTE SANDERSON in June 1938. 261  She then brought Parcel H and Parcel K (minus the portion sold to Charlotte Sanderson) under a single title. 262

See Parcel K below for further details.

Parcel I (1902)

James Henry Teague died of sunstroke in 1901, leaving his estate to his widow Eliza Teague (nee Miels). Eliza and Charles Teague then became tenants-in-common over the remaining Teague land.  In December 1902, they sold 1⁄2 acre (2 roods 8 perches) to JANE DRUMMOND (nee Dalgliesh), wife of Alexander Graham Drummond of Stirling West, Chaff Merchant. 263

Jane’s husband died in 1921, 264 but the Drummonds seem to have re-located to Adelaide before then.  They did not sell Parcel I until 1924, so it may have been leased or rented.  In July 1924, Jane sold it to GEORGE ALFRED SYKES RISELY of Stirling West, Chaff Merchant and his wife EDITH ALICE RISELY, under mortgage.  Risely must have had financial troubles because the mortgagee then sold it on to ARNOLD JOHN COPELAND, mounted constable of Stirling West on 23rd February 1937.

After Copeland’s death in September 1947, the property passed to his executors, and I have found no further sales until 1971 when it was sold to HERRIOT DRY CLEANERS PTY LTD, 265 suggesting that it was rented or leased for the intervening years.

Parcel J (1903)

Exhibit 30: Deposited Plan 3602, 1927 showing (in yellow) incorporation of a portion of Parcel J, into the Plan and which was subsequently vested in the District Council of Crafers as a Reserve (and Terrace). SAILIS DP 3602.By the start of 1903, Eliza Teague and Charles Teague still owned 7 acres 2 roods 24 perches of Section 46 as tenants-in-common. 266  In August 1903 they sold 4 acres 2 roods 8 perches (Parcel J) to WILLIAM RENDALL CAVE.  Most of this land adjoined Parcel F that Cave had purchased from Edward Teague back in 1882.  It also included two small strips of land providing access to it from Mount Barker Road.  One strip ran roughly alongside Drummond’s Parcel I, while a wider strip ran between Teague Parcels M and D along what is now Merrion Terrace. 267

A month later, in September 1903, William Rendall Cave sold 2 roods 25 perches on the Aldgate side of what is now Merrion Terrace to KATE ISABEL PHILLIPS of Adelaide, with a right of way that became incorporated into Merrion Terrace. 268  Kate Isabel Phillips seems to have been an employee of Cave & Co. 269

William Rendall Cave held the remainder until his death in 1916 when it passed to his son JOHN RENDALL CAVE. 270  John Rendall Cave sold the remaining 3 acres 3 roods 23 perches to AMOS FRANCIS CHINNER of Adelaide in May 1926.  In May 1926, John Rendall Cave also sold to Chinner most of the remaining portion of Parcel F that William Rendall Cave had bought from Edward Teague in 1882. 271  Chinner then sub-divided the combined land into 48 allotments as per Deposited Plan No. 3602 of 1927.  A portion of this land was vested in the District Council of Crafers as a Reserve and Terrace, 272 (Exhibit 30).   In May 1927, Chinner sold it to NICHOLAS CHEVALIER MacCORMAC, land agent of Adelaide, who progressively sold off individual allotments.

Parcel K (1917)

Based on the 1884-85 Survey, Parcel K was originally 1 acre 2 roods 31 perches.  After Parcel H was split off and transferred to Charles Frederick Hansen in 1895, no further action was taken in relation to this parcel until 16th May 1912 when a new Certificate of Title was issued in the name of CHARLES TEAGUE, 273 containing 1 acre 3 roods 24 perches (6 perches were presumably taken for a new road), subject to Caveat No. 187813 dated 28th January 1885.  This was just 4 days before Charles Teague died, intestate.

Exhibit 31: Portion of Section 46 (Parcel H & part Parcel K bounded in green) owned by Lucy Grierson Howard in October 1938.  Land owned by Charlotte Sanderson from June 1938 (part of Parcel K) marked X.  Extract from CT 1714/102, referenced to CT 1714/101.Upon Charles’ death on 20th May 1912, 274 his estate passed to his widow SARAH REBECCA TEAGUE.  Caveat No. 187813 over Parcel K was withdrawn on 25th August 1913. On 12th September 1913,  Sarah Rebecca transferred this parcel for life to her sister-in-law MATILDA HANSEN (nee Teague) who was by this time living in Hyde Park, and then to Matilda’s children as tenants-in-common. Her children — CHARLES EDWARD HANSEN, telegraphist of Hyde Park, EVA AUGUSTA MUELLER (nee Hansen) of Hyde Park, LILLIAN PALLEN (nee Hansen) of Swan Reach and LUCRETIA MAY HANSEN of Hyde Park — sold Parcel K to FREDERICK CHARLES HOWARD on 16th October 1917.  After Frederick Charles Howard’s death in 1919, the land was transferred to his widow LUCY GRIERSON HOWARD (nee Cave) and their son CHARLES ROY HOWARD.

By the end of 1919, Lucy Grierson Howard owned, with Charles Roy Howard, both Parcel H and Parcel K.  After Charles Roy Howard died in 1935, the title passed to LUCY GRIERSON HOWARD who sold a portion of Parcel K to CHARLOTTE SANDERSON June 1938 (marked Parcel X in Exhibit 31). 275

In 1938 Lucy Grierson Howard brought Parcel H and the balance of Parcel K together under a single title of 3 acres 1 rood 20 perches. 276

Exhibit 32: Plan showing portion of Parcel F (bounded in green) transferred from William Rendall Cave to Frederick Charles Howard & William Robertson, 1893. CT 570/13.  Parcels annotated as per Exhibit 22.Lucy Grierson Howard died in 1950. 277  This land then passed to her sons John Gilmore Howard and Robert Grierson Howard in February 1951 who sold it to SAMUEL IZAK LANDAU and MINNIE CHRISTINA LANDAU on 2nd February 1951.

This land (Parcels H plus K minus X) was then joined with a portion of Parcel F.  In January 1893, William Rendall Cave had split off 3 acres 1 rood 15 perches from the 25 acres (Parcel F) that he had purchased from Edward Teague in 1882, and transferred it to his brother-in-law FREDERICK CHARLES HOWARD and WILLIAM ROBERTSON, a business associate. 278 In July 1900 they sold 4 perches to CLARA EVA BRAY to provide her with a right of way along the private road to and from her land in Section 47. 279

Howard and Robertson transferred the remaining 3 acres 1 rood 11 perches to FREDERICK CHARLES HOWARD, 280 and CHARLES HERBERT WARREN in December 1902. 281   In September 1910 it passed to the surviving children of William Rendall Cave: Ellen May Brebner (nee Cave), Lucy Grierson Howard (nee Cave), Annie Alma Cave, Emily Marie Moorhouse (nee Cave), Hugo Charles Cave, John Rendall Cave, and Edmund Howard Cave as tenants-in- common.  In October 1916, they transferred a portion (2 acres 2 roods 30 perches) to FREDERICK CHARLES HOWARD. 282

Parcels annotated as per Exhibit 22.After the death of Frederick Charles Howard in 1919, the portion passed to his widow LUCY GRIERSON HOWARD and their son CHARLES ROY HOWARD.  Charles Roy Howard died in 1935 leaving Lucy Grierson Howard as sole owner.  A portion of the land was taken for a new road (Pomona Road) in 1923.  In January 1950, Lucy Grierson Howard transferred it to Lucy Grierson Howard and her sons JOHN GILMORE HOWARD and ROBERT GRIERSON HOWARD.  They then sold a small portion to GORDON HALL CHOMEL in February 1950. 283  They jointly held the remaining 2 acres until Lucy Grierson Howard died in June 1950 when it passed to John Gilmore Howard and Robert Grierson Howard. On 2nd February 1951 the parcel was split in two.

One portion of a little less than 1 acre 2 roods was sold to SAMUEL IZAK LANDAU and MINNIE CHRISTINA LANDAU on 2nd February 1951.  On the same day, a second portion of 1 acre 34 perches was transferred to BARBARA HOWARD, the daughter of Frederick Charles Howard. 284  She held this until July 1953 when she sold it to SAMUEL IZAK LANDAU of Pomona Road, Stirling West, merchant. 285

By July 1953, the Landau’s owned 4 acres 1 rood 15 perches in Section 46, excluding a small parcel adjacent in Section 2797. 286

Why go in to this level of forensic detail?  I wanted to solve the puzzle of who built the heritage-listed house and stable listed as 7 Pomona Road. See Attachment 2 for my findings.

Parcel L (1920)

After the sale of Parcel J to William Rendall Cave in 1903, Charles Teague and Eliza Teague as tenants-in-common retained a total of 3 acres 16 perches of the original 52 acres. 287  In 1905 they split this in half, with each holding 1 acre, 2 roods 8 perches on separate titles.  These are labelled Parcel L (held by Charles Teague), 288 and Parcel M (held by Eliza Teague). 289

In 1906, Charles transferred Parcel L to his wife SARAH REBECCA TEAGUE.  She held it until June 1920 when she sold it to MILLICENT MAUD BOWERING, wife of Jonathon Richard Bowering, agent of College Park.

In August 1922, Bowering sold 1 rood 36 perches to PERCY BENJAMIN HART, blacksmith of Stirling East, 290 retaining 1 acre 12 perches until 1943 when she sold it to GILBERT GORDON DYER, master baker of Stirling West. 291  It was held by the Dyer family until 1960 when they sold it to WILKINSON & CO LTD.

In 1966 a portion was transferred to the DISTRICT COUNCIL OF STIRLING, 292 and a smaller portion to the ST JOHN COUNCIL FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA. 293  These two portions, plus all of Parcel M, were incorporated within Filed Plan 1141.

Parcel M (1947)

Exhibit 34: Notice of Sale of Eliza Teague’s property, Stirling, 1946.  The Advertiser, 5 October 1946, page 19.As noted under Parcel L, Parcel M (comprising 1 acre 2 roods 8 perches) was transferred to Eliza Teague (widow of James Henry Teague and daughter-in-law of Edward Teague) in 1905, and she held it until she died on 4th July 1946. 294  It would seem that she rented it to a tenant as per the deceased estate Notice of Sale below.

Her executors (who iExhibit 35: Extract from SAILIS Filed Plan 1141, 1977 incorporating Parcel M (bounded in red) and portion of Parcel L (bounded in blue).ncluded her son Melton Victor Teague) sold it to ROBERT MICHAEL REMILTON in February 1947.  In October 1950, Remilton transferred a small portion fronting Merrion Terrace to FREDERICK CHARLES CUTTING of Stirling West, Contractor and his wife ROBERTA LILLIAN CUTTING together with a right of way. 295  It was transferred to the District Council of Stirling 20th January 1972.

In January 1951, the Remiltons sold the balance (1 acre 1 rood) at the corner of Mount Barker Road and Merrion Terrace to CECIL BOASE MADDERN dentist of Stirling West.  In June 1955 the land was transferred to the District Council of Stirling. 296

Parcel M was then incorporated into Filed Plan 1141, together with a portion of Parcel L.


Part 2: Hawkins Estate to Various

Richard Dixon Hawkins died on 18th April 1877, aged 58 years, 297 and his remaining land was progressively sold by the beneficiaries.  From August 1879 individual parcels in the area bounded today by Mount Barker Road, Gould Road and Golding Road (coloured blue in Exhibit 21) were sold.

Initial sales / transfers of this land that I have identified were:

  • To Joseph Searle, Crafers, Labourer, 1 acre 1 rood, August 1879. 298
  • To John Wishart, North Adelaide, Contractor, 3 acres 1 rood 23 perches, August 1879. 299
  • To Reuben Golding, Stirling East, Gardener, 10 acres 30 perches, August 1880. 300
  • To Salvator Rosa Wakefield, Adelaide, Auctioneer, 2 acres 3 roods 19 perches, April 1882. 301
  • To Stephen Gould, Stirling East, Market Gardener, 11 acres, August 1884. 302
  • To William Gould, Stirling, Retired Carrier, 2 acres 2 roods 24 perches, March 1929. 303

Shocroft leased the land to David John Gray for 9 years from 1st July 1879, with a right of purchase for £900/0/0. In November 1881 Shocroft took out a mortgage on the land. 304

Salvator Rosa Wakefield, auctioneer, scheduled a public auction on 18th March 1882 of the land which had been subdivided into 16 blocks, as per Exhibits 36 and 37.  I presume this was on the instructions of William Shocroft.  I do not know if the auction proceeded as scheduled, but am confident that no blocks were sold at auction.

Some sort of deal must have been done between William Shocroft and Salvator Rosa Wakefield.

On 31st July 1882, Development Plan 1203 was approved, dividing the land into six Lots.  The Surveyor’s Plan was consented to by William Rendall Cave, Alfred Jones and Salvator Rosa Wakefield. 305

Shocroft’s mortgage was discharged in August 1882, and at the same time, David John Gray surrendered his lease.  Shocroft transferred the entire portion of 30 acres to William Rendall Cave, Alfred Jones and Salvator Rosa Wakefield as joint tenants on 22nd August 1882. 306

Cave, Jones and Wakefield then sold off all six Lots over two days on October 10th and 11th 1882.

  • Lots 1 and 3, totalling 10 acres 3 roods 27 perches, sold to Reuben Golding. 307
  • Lot 2 containing 1 acre 3 roods 9 perches sold to Salvator Rosa Wakefield. 308
  • Lot 4 containing 1 acre 3 roods 19 perches sold to George Howell. 309
  • Lot 5 containing 1 acre 3 roods 19 perches sold to William Rendall Cave. 310
  • Lot 6 containing 13 acres 3 roods 32 perches sold to Thomas King.311

On 31st July 1882, Development Plan 1203 was approved, dividing the land into six Lots.  The Survey Plan was consented to by William Randell Cave, Alfred Jones and Salvator Rosa Wakefield. 312  Shocroft’s mortgage was discharged in August 1882, and at the same time, David John Gray surrendered the lease.  Shocroft transferred it to William Rendall Cave, Alfred Jones and Salvator Rosa Wakefield as joint tenants on 22nd August 1882. 313

ATTACHMENT 2: House and stables, No. 7 Pomona Road, Stirling

The 1997 Stirling District Heritage Survey, in discussing the heritage-listed house and stables at 7 Pomona Road, stated that:

Exhibit 39: Heritage-listed house & stables at what is now 7 Pomona Road, Stirling. Photo from Stirling District Heritage Survey, District Council of Stirling, March 1997, Taylor Weidenhofer & Sarah Laurence, p.426.The actual date of construction of this house is difficult to determine although its style suggests that it was built at the turn of the century.  Two acres of land, owned by Charles Frederick Hansen, a mason, were purchased in February 1895 by William Randell (sic) Cave.  Cave also owned 'Pomona' on Old Mount Barker Road, Crafers, which had been built in c. 1880, and it is possible that this property may have abutted 'Pomona'.  In September 1907 this house on Pomona Road was bought by Frederick Charles Howard.  It seems that the property at this time also included the small cottage known as 'Skye Cottage' on the other side of Pomona Road. Members of the Landau family have owned the house and stables since 1951. 314 (my emphasis)

This house and stables are located on part of the 52 acres within Section 46 in the Hundred of Noarlunga that Edward Teague purchased from Richard Dixon Hawkins in July 1871.  As I traced the original sales of Edward Teague’s 52 acres of Section 46, it became evident that:

a) Edward Teague’s son-in-law Charles Frederick Hansen did not sell 2 acres of land to William Rendall Cave in 1895, and William Rendall Cave did not own or build the house and stables at 7 Pomona Road as stated on page 428 of the 1997 Heritage Survey.  On 12th February 1895, Hansen transferred to William Rendall Cave a narrow sliver of land (3 perches or 75square metres) of his parcel, bordering Section 2798, and running parallel to what is now the South Eastern Freeway.  This transfer was probably to provide a direct access route from the 314 west to the land that Cave had bought from Edward Teague in 1882.  The very same 3 perches were transferred from William Rendall Cave to Frederick Charles Howard in September 1907. 315

b) Frederick Charles Howard did not buy this property from William Rendall Cave in September 1907.  Rather, he bought it in October 1906 from Edward Gibbon Wakefield, 316 who had in turn bought the land from Charles Frederick Hansen in November 1902. 317

c) A month after the land parcel (Parcel H in Exhibit 22) was transferred from the Teague estate to Charles Frederick Hansen in February 1895,  Hansen took out a mortgage with William Rendall Cave.  The mortgage was discharged in November 1902 and, on the same day, he sold it to Edward Gibbon Wakefield.

There are three options for who originally built the house and stables.

Charles Frederick Hansen.  Having written a comprehensive family history of the Teague-Hansen family, I think it is highly unlikely that Hansen would have built such a grand home either to live in or to sell.  Such an action is totally inconsistent with the way he conducted his business or lived his life.

Frederick Charles Howard.  It is possible that Frederick Charles Howard built the house after he purchased the land in 1906.  His wife, Lucy Grierson Howard, daughter of William Rendall Cave was obviously very fond of it, 318 and it was very close to her father’s property Pomona on Section 47.  She held the house and land in her own name from 1919 when her husband died until 1950 when she died.  She progressively extended the property to include adjacent land to the north west and south east.  It  passed to her sons after her death and they sold the property to Samuel Izak Landau and Minnie Christina Landau on 2nd February 1951.

Edward Gibbon Wakefield.  On the balance of evidence, I believe the house was built by Edward Gibbon (Ted) Wakefield and his wife Helen Wakefield (nee Sabine) to live in after they were married in June 1901.  This would put the date of the house at around 1902-1903.

Edward Gibbon Wakefield’s father, Salvator Rosa Wakefield was an auctioneer and land valuator, a very well-known business identity in Adelaide, 319 and a large landowner in the Stirling area in the 1880s.  Edward Gibbon joined his father’s firm and after his father’s death in 1898, he took over the business at the very young age of 24 and became a land and financial agent. 320  He married Helen Sabine in June 1901. 321  In December 1901 a Mrs E.G. Wakefield of Mount Lofty was advertising for a general servant, with ...two in family. 322

While Edward Gibbon’s offices were in Royal Chambers in Currie Street, Adelaide, from May 1903 he was advertising as being based in Stirling and Currie Street. 323

In 1903 he was living in Stirling West, as were William Rendall Cave, Simeon Moss, Lloyd Webb, the Radford brothers, Charles Frederick Hansen Exhibit 40: Notice of Auction of Edward Gibbon Wakefield’s household furniture and effects from his property at Mount Lofty (Stirling).  The Advertiser, 1 November 1906, page 12.and other early Stirling settlers. 324  Their first child, Charles Edward Wakefield was born in Stirling West in 1904, 325 and in 1905 Mrs E. G. Wakefield of Stirling West advertised for a Cook (Laundress) and Nursery-Housemaid for Mount Lofty. 326  In 1906 he was listed in the Sands Directory as living at Stirling West. 327

A 1953 obituary confirmed that he lived at Mount Lofty (i.e. Stirling), commuting by train to the City until 1906 when, through a chance encounter on a train, he decided for a life on the land.  He sold up in South Australia at the end of 1906 and relocated to NSW where he had bought two blocks within the Bangaroo Station at Canowindra in the central west of NSW. 328

He sold the Stirling property to Frederick Charles Howard in September 1906 and he put the furniture and effects of his Stirling house to auction in November 1906.

By March 1907 a Canowindra newspaper was reporting that:

Mr. E. T. (sic) Wakefield one of the purchasers of Bangaroo subdivision has not let the grass grow under his feet.  Since October he has had erected a nice five-roomed cottage, fenced and subdivided his whole property, and at present has as fine a crop of corn as one would wish to see, estimated to yield fully 80 bushels per acre. 329

The chronology of the parcel of land on which the house and stables were built is detailed in the discussion of Parcel H in Attachment 1, and is not repeated here.

Some sources dispute that Edward Teague was their son on the grounds that Edward was born in 1807, before James & Susanna were married. Brother Anthony of Taizé has written a comprehensive family history of the Teague families of Grampound, Cornwall to which I suspect Edward Teague was distantly related. In private correspondence with Brother Anthony about Edward’s parents, dated 29 July 2018, he wrote: “My own opinion would be that we know little of the domestic/sexual morality practiced by such people in those days and I would not be surprised if the birth came before the legal marriage. This was before the more widespread puritanical evangelical revivals of the 19th century and the non-conformist churches among the poorer classes tended (I think) to be emotional hothouses. They might well have pledged their troth in a meeting of their church, which would not have had legal status but would have been enough in the eyes of their companions .....That would be the simplest explanation.” See also http://anthony.sogang.ac.kr/Family/Teaguefamily.html; and http://anthony.sogang.ac.kr/Family/TeaguesGrampound.html

The Great Eastern Hotel was built in 1853 on Section 4428 of the Hd of Macclesfield, now 71-73 Princes Highway, Littlehampton, and opened its doors in 1854. This reference is possibly to the house built by the ex-convict Walter Simpson & his wife Mary Ann Simpson (nee Scammell) on Section 5000 opposite the Great Eastern Hotel, which is now heritage-listed as the house at 84 Princes Highway Littlehampton.

88  I note Chris Chardon’s research on the rise and fall of the distinction between Stirling East and Stirling West in what is today known simply as Stirling.  Chardon writes that ... Stirling East was the name for all of the area of what is now the Main Street of Stirling save the section between Druid Avenue and Avenue Road.  This may have been named Stirling West in about 1883 when the new Post Office assumed that name.  Use of the name Stirling West was gradually adopted by the people living in the western end of the Main Street ... (The Flinders Column, Newsletter of Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society, No. 77, June 1997, Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society). In this paper, ‘Stirling East’ or ‘Stirling West’ is used in accordance with the public records of the time, knowing that the boundaries between the two changed over time and that they no longer exist.

I believe Mary Atwell was buried in the churchyard of the Stirling Bible Christian Chapel which in 1879 became the Ashton Memorial Methodist Church, Stirling East.  When this church was sold in 1986, it was decided to preserve the remaining headstones in the church cemetery by relocating them to what is now known as Stirling Cemetery.  Mary’s headstone is now located in Stirling Cemetery, Section A, Row 11, Plot X4, in a row comprising 11 headstones relocated from Ashton.  See “An Historic Walk Among the Headstones of the Stirling District Cemetery”, pamphlet prepared for the Stirling District Council by T.
