SCHOOL WORK HISTORY: The 1901 Census shows Michael HUNT as living at West Blowering, Via Tumut. NSW. The record shows his family as 3 Males and 4 Females. This could possible be: 1 Self Michael 1 Wife Elizabeth 2 Son Joseph - born 1874 2 Daughter Catherine - born 1876 - who married Samuel Groves 1901 3 Daughter Mary Maria - born 1881 - who married Alfred A A Tindall 1903 So, 1 male and 1 female were there at the count. Who were they? The farm Michael and Catherine Hunt purchased at West Blowering which was firstly taken up by a Mr John McBarne. Source: Parish of Yellowin, County of Selwyn, Land District of Tumut dated 1/9/1874. They grew vegetables on the river flats, then Elizabeth would set offfor the mountains on a wagon loaded with produce. There she found a ready market for these items which could not be grown in the cooler climate. She must have been a remarkable and strong woman to manage such an undertaking single handed. They then sold the property just after WW1 to a James Woods who was abullock driver between Adelong and Sydney, another amazing feat undertodays working conditions. Maybe they also owned the property to the north which was later ownedby the Waldron's as James Wood left the two properties to the Boyds and Waldrons which was about 116 acres.

SCHOOL: WORK Drover in the Kiandra area Farmer, "Melgrove" East Blowering, Tumut. Tumut Prior to white settlement, Tumut marked the boundary of three separate Aboriginal tribes. To the north lived the Ngunawal, to the south the Walgalu and to the west, the Wiradjuri. During summer tribes came together and journeyed to the highest peaks to feast on the plentiful Bogong moths. The moth?s outline is used today in the Tumut Region Visitor Centre logo. During the late 1820s settlers pushed down the Murrumbidgee Generation 4 (con't) Visitor Centre logo. During the late 1820s settlers pushed down the Murrumbidgee and by 1829 the first pioneers were on the Tumut River. Land was first settled at Darbalara, close to the junction of the Tumut and Murrumbidgee. During the first 20 years settlement was scattered along the Tumut River,the original settlement being at Mill Angle, at the end of the present showground road, where the first inn was kept by Tim O'Mara. On the opposite bank a Mr Anderson set up his blacksmith's shop, and here he and a Mr Foord built the first bridge over the river about 1850. This was the earliest Tumut - wattle and daub and slab-built huts in which dwelt the blacksmiths and teamsters, until a flood in 1852 consolidated the scattered hamlets into one village, and Tumut as it is today, was born. By 1887 Tumut (a name derived from an Aboriginal word meaning "a quiet resting place by the river") was a municipality; by 1928 it had become the headquarters of the thriving Tumut Shire, which also embraced Adelong and Batlow. Today the explorers and the pioneers have long gone, but the hauntingbeauty of the valley remains. People from the original three tribes still live across the Tumut region and perform rituals and ceremonies at important sites to maintain their relationship with the land. Tumutis the hub of a beautiful valley at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains. With a population of over 6000 the town boasts a modern cosmopolitan shopping centre equal to the best in any town of the same size, excellent social facilities and a large range of fine caravan parks, motels and holiday flats, bed and breakfast establishments, licensed clubs, restaurants and cafes, and a first class Visitor Information Centre to handle all your enquiries on all the things to see and do in the TumutRegion. Beauty is everywhere - incredibly beautiful parks, famous trees, Adelong's picturesque pastoral scenes, Batlow's glorious orchard country, Yarrangobilly Caves, awe inspiring power stations and lakes of the Snowy Mountains Scheme, enormous stands of pine and hardwood plantations, and the vast Kosciuszko National Park with its abundance of wildlife and flora, unique landscape and snow. The township provides a wide variety of quality accommodation optionsto make your stay memorable while the wide selection of outlets in the modern shopping centre will be able to meet all your needs. Historically, there's plenty to reflect Tumut's heritage: magnificentold buildings including the town's churches, courthouse and hotels, its pioneer cemetery on Adelong Road which includes the grave of ThomasBoyd, a member of the Hume and Hovell expedition which passed throughTumut in 1824. The Tumut Historical Society's museum has fascinating information about farm and domestic items charting the town's pioneering history, superb photos of the region's development and a special display featuringmemorabilia of famous Talbingo author, Miles Franklin. The magnificent mountainuous terrain of the Tumut region has attracted a large field of international female cyclists competing in the Tour De Snowy. This world class event has gained a reputation equal to the Tour De France. The Festival of the Falling Leaf is celebrated annually in April.

1848 - CLAIMS TO LEASES OF CROWN LANDS BEYOND THE SETTLED DISTRICTS.

(From the Government Gazette.)MURRUMBIDGEE DISTRICT. - COLONIAL Secretary's Office, Sydney, September 30. - His Excellency the Governor directs it to be notified, for the information of all persons interested, that in pursuance of her Majesty's Order in Council, of the 9th March, 1847, the undermentioned persons have demanded leases of the several runs of Crown Land, particularised in connexion with their respective names.

1888 - Gundagai.October 16. - SHEARING is in full swing. One or two sheds will finish this week. From most of the stations a good clip is reported.

THE WHEAT AND OAT CROPS are looking splendid. BRUNGLE.- On Wednesday last the Bar. J. B. Gribble, superintendent of aboriginal missions, paid a visit of inspeotion to the Brungle Camp, where he found twenty-eight men, twenty-eight women, fifteen boys, and fourteen girls oonneoted with the encampment. The huts, sohool-house, fencing, clearing, on tho reserve were carefully noted; while muon of a praiaeworthy naturo had been attempted by the blaoks toward self-support. Mr. Gribble'a opinion is that with judioious management a very comfortable home may ho developed for tho blaoks at Brungle.

THE BALL in aid of the Gundagai Hospital, under the auspices of tho Loyal Strangers' Friend Lodge, camo off on Friday night last, and was fairly successful. The music was provided by Homan'a Band and gave evory satisfaction. The hall was neatly docorated with flags and evergreens, and looked delightful. The ladies wore prettily dressed. Blue seemed to be the favorite color; while those in fancy costumes looked very nice. Mr Glasscock acted as M.C., and rendered great service by his courtsay and attention.

THE STOCKOWNERS here are put to considerable inconvenience and injustice through no cattle or sheep truoks being obtainable to convey fat stock to market. The railway authorities say that no truoks Will be available until the end of November. This will cause considerable loss to graziers and squatters and a borious loss to the railway revenue. - (Ref- Australian Town and Country Journal (NSW : 1870 - 1907)(about) Previous issue Saturday 20 October 1888).

1899 - THE MINISTER FOR WORKS ON TOUR. = visit TO THE TUMUT DISTRICT. (FROM OUR SECIAL Reporter) TUMUT, Wednesday. This evening Mr T H Young, Minister for Works, with Messrs Donaldson, Hawthorne, and Ferguson, M. L. A., arrived here by buggy from Gundagai, after inspecting the country which would be served by a railway proposed to be made from Coolac to this township, via Brungle. The party reached Gundagai by train this morning. After breakfasting at the principal hotel, they were welcomed by the Mayor and aldermen and taken over the municipal buildings and the School of Arts.

About noon they got into vehicles and were driven over the Murrumbidgee bridge to the bridge over the Tumut River at Brungle, which is now being replaced by a new structure. Some residents of Brungle and Wagra there met the Minster and offered him a hearty welcome to the Tumut Electorate. In an address which they presented to him they predicted that his tour must necessarily cause him enjoyment, enlightenment, and instruction, as it would extend from the verdant plains of the locality he was then in to the salubrious climate and romantic scenery of the alpine regions at Yarrangobilly. The Minister suitably acknowledged the address, and said it gave him much pleusure to visit the Tumut district. A number of farmers with their wives and daughters entertained the party at a picnic dinner on the banks of the Tumut River near Brungle. A stay was made there extending over two hours, during which time Mr. Gormly, M L A , arrived. Mr. Young, on taking leave of his entertainers, thanked them cordially for their hospitality. Three cheers were given for the ladies.

The journey was resumed through the Tumut River flats past the Brungle aboriginal settlement, and by a winding road around the bases of Mount Killemicat and Pine Hill. On nearing its destination, the Ministerial party was met by a number of residents of the township in buggies and on horseback, and quite a long procession of crowded vehicles followed Mr. Young into Tumut. At half past 5 he was received at the Royal Hotel by members of the municipal council, and warmly welcomed To Tumut in a formal way by the aldermen over bumpers of champagne, Mr Donaldson, M.L.A., acting as spokesman on behalf of the municipality.

Mr. Young, in reply, said he was not surprised at the warmth of the welcome extended to him as the representative of the Ministry. He did not assume it was a personal welcome, as most people in Tumut knew nothing of him excepting by repute. If his acts had not been fairly commented upon by the newspapers he was sorry for it, but, even so, he hoped the more they saw of him the better they would like him. His trip had so far been exceedingly enjoyable. He was pleased the time had come at last when he could see the Tumut district, as his object was, as Minister for Works to make himself acquainted with the wants of all parts of the country, and to do what was fair in the best interests of each district.

Mr Hawthorne also expressed his pleasure at visiting the district. He said the Minster for Works had a soft spot, and if the Tumut people found it out they would get their railway. The Minister, he thought, was already at the start of his tour, favourably impressed with what he had seen of the district .

Mr. Ferguson said he was glad also to make a visit to the prosperous district of Tumut. Anything he could do to forward the interests of the residents he would do, as no district in New South Wales, he considered, was more worthy of railway communication. Increased settlement he held, was sure to follow railway construction.

To-morrow the visitors will be driven to various points of interest around Tumut. - (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Thursday 2 February 1899).

1860 - Withdrawn LAND FROM SALE.- The following portion of land, gave tlted in the Government Gazelle for sale at the Police Office, Tumut, on 12th March next, has been withdrawn from sale, viz. lot 4, containing 141 acres, portion No. 4, parish of Brungle. - (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Wednesday 22 February 1860).

Wild Rabbits.- A basket containing seven wild rabbits, exhibited at Mr. E. G. Brown's last week, was inspected with much interest; and great was the controversy as to whether the innocent looking little creatures, which wore just able to nibble grass, were rabbits or hares, one gentleman offering to bet £20 to £1 that they were tho latter. That a doubt could exist upon the question was to some extent conseling, as it showed that rabbits were not yet sufficiently numerous to be readily recognised. It seems that these young strangers were wild rabbits, the litter having been dug out of a burrow by Mr. W. Annett's near Adelong.

Progress Committee.-The Tumut Progress Committee consists of twenty members, who are elected annually, the nomination for being is, which assists to pay for stationery and etanma. Usually the members of the committee have out of their own pockets to defray the talanoo of liabilities, as some expense is incurred for advertising and printing. The election of the new committee comes off on the 18th instant; and, strange to say, though the retiring committee have been instrumental in having some thousands of pounds spent upon roads and bridges and other important local improvements, very little interest seems to be taken in the coming election, and only five candidates over the required number have been nominated. Perhaps the public, who are never slow to point out to our representativo body grievances which require remedying, only want the matter properly brought before them to aid the committee with a littlo practical sympathy. - (Ref- Australian Town and Country Journal (NSW : 1870 - 1907)(about) Previous issue Saturday 20 September 1890).

1892 - Tumut. October 17. Mail Coaches. - The application made to the postal authorities by the member for the district, at the request of numerous residents, to have the Tumut to Gundagai mail coach travel three times a week by way of Brungle is likely to be successful. The secretary of the Brungle Progress Committee has received a letter from the Post Office Department stating that the Postmaster-General has invited tenders for the altered service-viz., for running this mail three times a week, via Gocup, and three times via Brungle.

1892 - A Hare Drive came off at Wyangle on Wednesday last, when a party of 18 shooters secured 145 of these rodents. Wild rabbits are increasing. Mr. R. M'Alister, of Wereboldera, about four miles out of Tumut, has recently captured and destroyed 31 genuine grey bunnies. - (Ref- Australian Town and Country Journal (NSW : 1870 - 1907)(about) Previous issue Saturday 22 October 1892).

BRUNGLE NEWS.[From our Correspondent.]

On New Year's Day a cricket match was played out here, Brungle v. Gundagai. In some instances the batting and bowling was very good, but in the long run tbe visitors bad to submit to a very bad defeat, and it would be advisable in tbe future not to take Brungle too easy and put a fairly strong team in the. field when being challenged from here by this team. The play at times was very exciting, and a very enjoyable day's amusement was spent by tbe onlookers. A ball was held at night, and was well patronised, the proceeds from same going towards tbe club's expenses. Tbe Brungle Aboriginal cricket team (Warrigals) sent a challenge to the local team about three weeks or a month ago, but up to the pre sent no acknowledgment of this challenge has been received, and it is rumoured tbat old Billy Williams, the bowler, is the dud, but tbe 'Warrigals' will wait a liitle longer for an answer to their challenge, before coming to a hasty conclusion. Tbe holidays passed away very quietly, around here, but to enliven matters a bit a fire started in the paddocks of Mr. Harris, caused by a cigarette being thrown down. It burnt a good amount ot grass, and then careered ito Mr. Crouch's property, and. so. on. up Killimicat onto the property of . Mr. -Quirk, but owing' to a good roll up of volunteers, who fought the fire, it soon was run to an end. Tbis fire occurred on Christmas Day. On Tuesday last another fire started on the property of Davis Bros., Tarrabandra, which is sup posed to bave started from a spark from the kitchen chimney. The fire started near the house and the grass under the house got ignited and it was a difficult matter to save the bouse, but one of tbe brothers cnwled under the dwelling, which is about 15in. of I8in. above the ground, and put the grass out.

BRUNGLE NEWS.[From our Correspondent.]

On New Year's Day a cricket match was played out here, Brungle v. Gundagai. In some instances the batting and bowling was very good, but in the long run tbe visitors bad to submit to a very bad defeat, and it would be advisable in tbe future not to take Brungle too easy and put a fairly strong team in the. field when being challenged from here by this team. The play at times was very exciting, and a very enjoyable day's amusement was spent by tbe onlookers. A ball was held at night, and was well patronised, the proceeds from same going towards tbe club's expenses. Tbe Brungle Aboriginal cricket team (Warrigals) sent a challenge to the local team about three weeks or a month ago, but up to the pre sent no acknowledgment of this challenge has been received, and it is rumoured tbat old Billy Williams, the bowler, is the dud, but tbe 'Warrigals' will wait a liitle longer for an answer to their challenge, before coming to a hasty conclusion.

The holidays passed away very quietly, around here, but to enliven matters a bit a fire started in the paddocks of Mr. Harris, caused by a cigarette being thrown down. It burnt a good amount of grass, and then careered into Mr. Crouch's property, and so on up Killimicat onto the property of . Mr. -Quirk, but owing' to a good roll up of volunteers, who fought the fire, it soon was run to an end. Tbis fire occurred on Christmas Day. On Tuesday last another fire started on the property of Davis Bros., Tarrabandra, which is sup posed to bave started from a spark from the kitchen chimney. The fire started near the house and the grass under the house got ignited and it was a difficult matter to save the bouse, but one of tbe brothers cnwled under the dwelling, which is about 15in. of I8in. above the ground, and put the grass out. In the meantime a good wind ' was blowing and the fire raced along through a small orchard, burnt the trees, and then on to the property of Mr. Clemson, where a good acre age of grass' was burnt. At tbis time about 50 volunteers from all pans of the district chased the fire, which got into the property of Mr. A. Stuckey. but the fire fighters were determined to .end mutters, aud although a strong wind was blowing, and some of the fighters got singed a bit, it was run to a standstill and the heavy and labori ous work of fighting this fiend was at last complete. If tbe fire had got away into some of Mr. Stuckey's paddocks a very great amount of damage would have been done to fences and perhaps houses and hay stacks, as they were heavily stocked with dry grass.

1933 - RED CROSS NOTES. - This year the annual conference of the Red Cross Society (N.S.W. Division) will take place from April 10 to 12. It is anticinated that a large number of delegates will be present. Arrangements will be made for a visit to Bodington Sanitorium, Wentworth Falls, as one of the sessions of the conference.

Despite the fact that the Red Cross branches as a whole are in recess until the end of this month, many are engaged in raising funds for the society. The Brungle branch held a euchre party and flannel dance in the Brungle Memorial Hall on January 2. The Illabo branch organised a successful social on New Year's Eve. The Gundaroo branch conducted a tea stall at the local sports meeting on Boxing Day.

A younger set connected with the Tumut branch has formed itself into a dramatic company. The first production took place last month, and realised the amount of £24.

As a result of street stalls arranged by the Nowra branch last month, the sum of £25 was raised for the society.

An afternoon tea party organised by the Misses McKinnon, Marks, and Heffernan, on behalf of the Junee branch, was the means of raising £6/10/: and street stalls conducted by the Glen Innes branch raised £7/5/4. A street stall and a dance were arranged by the Adaminaby branch, and resulted in £13/5/8. A successful bridge party was held at Cavell House, Summer Hill, by the local branch, as its one effort for the year, when the sum of £10 was collected. - (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Wednesday 11 January 1933).
