Occupation

Alfred Benjamin Waldren & Family Letter by George Truscott * RHSV, COPY,MS 000054

Queensland Electoral Roll 1903, Occupation Farmer, (with second wife Mary) Northern Road, Roma, Queensland Arrived Port Philip with family on the maiden voyage of the Sultana,1316 ton, of White Star Line, DC Taylor, Liverpool 13 Sep 1854 Port Philip 12 Dec 1854. Letter by George Truscott * RHSV, COPY,MS 000054 / with 381 migrants. Emma's father, Alfred Waldron, had come to Australia on the sailing ship 'Sultana in 1854 on its maiden voyage, paying the fare for himself and his young family. Alfred first settled at Emerald Hill (now called South Melbourne) trading and dealing in horses. Alfred was reputed to have dealt in horses during his first stay in Melbourne and the day before he left for the goldfields he bought horses for 100 pounds and resold them the same day for 150 pounds. Unfortunately, not all his deals were successful. He missed the deal of a lifetime. He was offered a parcel of 10 acres of land at 1 pound an acre, the top price in those days. Unfortunately he declined the offer as it was very densely timbered and he thought the cost of clearing would be too great. This land is now situated in the heart of the city of Melbourne.

1856 finds Alfred Waldron and his family were in the Bogong Gold fields (Woodshed Valley Beechworth area), then onto the Indigo gold fields, nearer the Murray River. Alfred had mixed fortunes and about 1858 decided to return to Melbourne believing he could make more money in his old profession as a dealer in horses.

At the end of 1860 Alfred Waldron is at Chiltern where he was operating a dairy selling milk to the miners this being more profitable than scratching for gold although he still held shares in deep mining at Chiltern. In 1861 he obtained a license to operate a hotel on the Wangaratta Road, near the racetrack just outside Chiltern - hence the name the 'Turf Hotel'. This he operated successfully in conjunction with his dairying until 1864, when he lost his wife Sarah (Gardener)and three of his sons all in the same year. Alfred married Mary McIntyre and later farmed' at Escort, Victoria (near Chiltern), still having some interests at Chiltern, eventually moving back to that town . The Eight Annual Show atChiltern, Barnawaratha, and Indigo, Horticultural and Agriculture Society which was held in February 1871. The History of Chiltern says the show was a great success and indicates an effort of settlement and farming. Great interest was showing cattle by the Judges Jason Withers, John O'Neill and Alfred Waldron. CHILTERN FRIDAY APRIL 15 1870 The Perseverance Steam Saw Mill Near the Chiltern Pound A.

In1879, Alfred sold up his Victorian interests and travelled overland to Queensland

Alfred's christening details have not been found. On his death certificate, it records his place of birth as Stourbridge, Worcestershire, England. Stourbridge was a small hamlet next to the village of Old Swinford. On the marriage certificate to Sarah Gardner, Alfred's father is recorded as James Waldron.

It was reported that Alfred travelled throughout England and Wales, attending various horse fairs as a horse dealer. It was a risky business in those days as money for transactions had to be carried in cash, usually gold. On one occasion Alfred had a narrow escape when he sold a large number of horses and was carrying considerable amount of cash. There was only one inn situated in the village which the fair was held, but the hour was late and he was forced by circumstances to avail himself of the accommodation there. It looked by no means impressive and the innkeeper was, to put it mildly, the type to immediately arouse one's suspicions and added to this there were no locks on the door. It was the custom in those days for horse dealers to carry horse pistols. These were about a foot long and were loaded on the same principal as a muzzle loader gun. Alfred on this occasion was unarmed, but his impression of the innkeeper warned him to take the precaution of barricading the door with all the furniture of the room. About the hour of midnight, he heard someone try the door. He immediately challenged the intending intruder, but getting no answer, threatened to shoot should he try to enter. There was a candle stick in the room and he used the old fashioned candle ejector with which to make a noise similar to the cocking of a pistol. It can hardly be said that he spent a comfortable night and he felt even less comfortable soon afterwards when this particular inn was burnt down and several human skeletons were found in the cellar.

Alfred was married twice and had children from both marriages. His first wife was Sarah GARDNER and they had 10 children: Sarah (b. Abet 1846), Mercy (b. Abet 1848), Emma (b. Abet 1850), Alfred (b Abet 1852), William (dead before 1865) Joseph(b . Abet 1857), Henry (b. Abet 1859), Edward (b Abet 1861), Thomas (dead before 1865), John ?. Sarah and Alfred were married in England. Alfred was then 19 years of age.

Alfred, Sarah Gardner (his wife), and their children Sarah, Mercy, Emma and Alfred arrived in Sydney as unassisted migrants in December 1854 on the ship 'Sultana'. During the long voyage, Emma (my grandmother) nearly died and the family were prepared to bury her at sea, however she survived and had a long and fruitful life. The records of the 'Sultana' have the Waldron family recorded as: Alfred (30), Sarah (29), Sarah (7), Mercy(5), Emma (3) and Alfred (1).

Alfred migrated to Victoria was undoubtedly influenced by the discovery of gold being found in Australia, he was one of many thousands of fortune seekers who went to the alluvial diggings. Alfred tried gold digging around Bendigo, Beechworth and Chiltern, but was not very successful so turned his attention to a more profitable employment. He bought some land and a herd of cows and sold milk to the miners at 2s.6p. per quart. During his stay in Chiltern he had contracts owning 4 one horse drays carting soil to form the road bed for the railway from Melbourne to Chiltern.

On the 2 January 1861, Alfred received a publican's licence for the Turf Hotel in Chiltern. The Turf Hotel was located on Wangaratta Road (later known as Melbourne Road before being called the Hume Highway up to 1960 when the Highway was relocated). The Turf Hotel was adjacent to the Chiltern Old Cemetery, which was about a mile out of town. The Turf Hotel did a steady trade from the miners at the nearby gold diggings at Doma Mungi and from the funeral parties that had to pass by the hotel on the way to the cemetery. The wakes were pretty jolly and those attending sometimes stayed the night. The Turf Hotel was later sold to a Martin Wenke and he renamed it the Doma Mungi Hotel. The hotel didn't last very long and went bust, mainly due to the relocation of the Chiltern Old Cemetery next door to the hotel, to a site back of the town of Chiltern, which was called the Chiltern New Cemetery. The hotel no longer exists. The reason for the cemeteries relocation was be cause of the rocky nature of the area being too difficult to dig a grave deep enough for a burial, and secondly, when it rained heavy, the ground would not absorb water and some of the coffins/bodies would work their way to the surface. Mr Wenke was very bitter over the loss.

Reference supplied by Barry T. Deas of Rutherglen. The Rutherglen Sun and Chiltern Valley Advertiser, September 24th, 1886. WALDRON, Alfred "At the commencement of the old Indigo, was supplying the diggers with milk, and when the Chiltern then known as New Ballarat' was found, became a shareholder in one of the large engine claims known as the "Oriental". He afterwards erected the first hotel on the Melbourne Road, near the present site of Chiltern Pound in 1860, which he occupied for some years, combining dairying with his other business, and was amongst the first selectors who selected land at Docker's Plains. Now of Bungeworgorai Creek, Queensland."

Alfred married Mary McIntyre on 31st October, 1864. Mary, the daughter of Lauchlan McIntyre (boot-maker) and Helen McBeth, was born about 1836 at Braco, Perthsire, Scotland. Mary had arrived in the Colony about 1862 at the age of 26 years. I t is reported that Mary was housekeeping for Alfred after the death of Sarah. Her occupation on her marriage certificate lists 'domestic servant'. It is also reputed that Mary had red hair. Mary went to America intending to keep house fora relative (brother), however he had married by the time she arrived and she returned to Scotland. She then came to Australia and Daniel (her son) wrote that "when she landed she sat down on the sands and wept with loneliness and homesickness for Scotland".

Alfred Waldron had a lucky escape in Victoria on one occasion when he, in company with a 12 year old son, inspected a very attractive line of cattle. The vendor insisted on being paid in bank notes and seemed rather over insistent that Alfred leave his son behind while he returned to Chiltern to get the necessary bank notes. Alfred declined the offered hospitality and took the boy with him. While journeying to Chiltern he mentioned to a traveller along the road about the wonderfully cheap cattle he had bought, stating that he was returning to get the cash to pay for them. The traveller advised him to forget the deal as it was a trap for Dan MORGAN, the bushranger, to intercept him with the money on the wayback. The low priced cattle was merely a decoy to attract buyers.

Alfred eventually arrived in Queensland after travelling overland from Victoria in canvas covered wagons. Alfred & Mary and all of the family except Alfred's three daughters (who had married and remained In Victoria) made the journey north. Mary Waldron, gave birth to a son at Cantas Gully New South Wales during their year long Journey. Alfred purchased a place near Nanango from a man named Sullivan. The property was carrying sheep which he also bought. The sheep had to be shepherded all day and penned in dingo proof yards at night. However with dingoes, worms, and grass seeds that penetrated the sheep skin made the venture a failure so he sold out and the family moved on to take up various Selections (newly opened land available for purchase) near Roma.

Death

An Historic Town

Sun OrchidsThe first settlers in the area were graziers with a township reserve created along the Black Dog Creek in 1854. Development of the township ceased abruptly when John Conness discovered gold at nearby Indigo in 1858. With the influx of miners the focus of settlement shifted from Black Dog Creek to the Chiltern Lead. The population grew along the lead (now Conness Street) and the Beechworth and Indigo gold fields route.

In February 1862 Chiltern was proclaimed a municipality and the first elected Council comprised all representatives from the miners group, believed to be a precedent in Victoria. The Victorian Gazetteer of 1865 lists Chiltern: “There are two steam sawmills and the district is agricultural and pastoral ... Gold mining – alluvial and quartz, is also carried on in and around the Borough, and alluvial claims being chiefly worked by machinery. Chiltern has a County and Police Court, a Court of Mines, a reading room, a telegraph station and a post and money order office; a newspaper (Federal Standard) ... and branches of the Australasia, New South Wales and Oriental Banks.”

Mining continued until the early 1900s and quartz reef mining finally ceasing in 1911. The principal mines of the area included the Golden Bar Mine 10,200 ounces, the Magneta Mine 9,900 ounces, Golden Bar Extended 4000 ounces and the Pass Poy party crushed 1757 tons for 2843 ounces. At its height, Chiltern had a population around 20,000, including 2000 Chinese. Its present population is around 1000.
