30th December, 1821, John (1st) Wilkinson was born to parents William and Margaret Wilkinson in Liverpool, Sydney. NSW. - (Ref- NSW BDM V1822224 127/1822).
1847 John (1st) Wilkinson JP married Miss Elizabeth Ellen McAlister in Yass, NSW, in 1847, (Ref:- NSW BDM No. V1847589 32C).
A Hereford Stud was established with great results in the shows and sale yards.
So, two of the very early pioneering families into the general area married and between them all, many thousands of acreas were claimed and worked very successfully over the later years.
They all would have experienced extreme hardships in establishing their lifestyles, but, no doubt had a great satisfaction to see the results of their efforts in their later lives. To enjoy the comfort of modern housing alone would have been worth while.

The best of Sydney and Melbourne specialists were engaged on her case in its earlier stages, but the trouble refused to yield to the treatment adopted by the Melbourne specialist, and during the past few months Drs. Browne and Clouston did their utmost to afford the patient relief, and she bore her sufferings with fortitude, resigned to the fate that she knew awaited her.
Deceased was the daughter of the late John Wilkinson, of Springfield, and sister of Mr John T. and Miss C. Wilkinson, of Springfield, and Mr. Thos. E. Wilkinson, of Tumut, her age being 62 years.

1952 - £5,000 Asset From £400 - A farmer created an asset worth £5,000 by the expenditure of about £400, the district agronomist at Tumut, Mr. F. Nicholson, said yesterday.
The money was spent on excavating a pit silo and filling it with 800 tons of pea vine residue. The area of the pit was 125ft by 25ft by 10ft 6in deep. Some of the residue was grown by the farme. Mr. Peter Wilkinson, of Springfield. The rest was collected in from neighbours who grew peas for canning.
From the present acreage of pea crops in the Tumut district at least 11,000 tons of silage could be saved. If Tumbarumba and Gundagai districts were also taken into account the total would reach probably 30,000 tons of a form of silage of great value as feed for dairy cows and other livestock Fed with pasture hay and small quantities of grain, it would provide a well-balanced ration for both supplementary and drought feeding. - (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Friday 18 January 1952).

HISTORICAL TUMUT.- [BY "WOMBAT."]
The late Mr T. Wilkinson, in a memoir he left, says he lived 18 months on the Gilmore, at the homestead how known as "Rosebank."
The Gilmore Creek was dry from the end of 1838 until the middle of 1889. Wheat was worth £2 per bushel, and hard to procure at that.
"We took up a license for a holding on the Gilmore," says the writer, " but a dispute arose with Shelley as to the boundaries. WW were ordered to move by Mr Commissioner Bingham who possessed great power at that time.
We built where O'Brien's house now stands, and had one crop of wheat, which was half smut.
My brother John was with me then. We had about 70 head ot cattle.
Bingham moved our license over to Yallowin; that was in June, 1840, and we were the first there. We settled on the flat, and put in crop of wheat at the top end of it. All wheat was ground by hand flourmill, the nearest mill worked by power being at Yass.
McAlister was the only man who grow wheat for sale on the Gilmore Creek, where Korn now resides. Cultivation was done with the swing plough drawn by bullocks. All crops were reaped by hand and threshed with flails. Rations in wheat were served out and each man had to grind his own flour.
We bred cattle at Yallowin, fat bullocks then being worth 20s per head in Sydney, and hard to sell At that.
Two-year-olds wore worth 10s, 8-year-olds 14s and 5 and 6-year-olds 20s.
We paid about L25 a year for our squatting license. We could hire good men for L12 a year.
Whitty used to pay his men L5 a yearand gave them each a 2-year-old filly; he was one of the best employers at that time.
Dr. Clayton owned East and West Blowering in 1839, and about 2 years later Whitty bought the property.
There were no fences existing anywhere. Our cattle grazed from Tumut to Lobbs Hole, Davis had Yarrangobilly run in 1840. There had been stations on Long Plain, Tantangra, Coolamon and Coorangorambla, but they were all deserted on account of the snow. In 1840 we tooour cattle up to Long Plain (I was in partnership with W. Bridle sr). We thought we could dairy there, but on March 8, 1841, snow commenced to fall and this disgusted us, so we came back to Yallowin, leaving our cattle at Long Plain where 80 of them perished in the snow.
In 1851 gold was discovered in Victoria, and the dawn of better days began."
During the '40's the brothers Messrs Roland and George Shelley (the latter being the father of Mr W. J. Shelley, of Tumut Plains took up Bombowlee Station after Rankin Bros), and after they occupied it a while Hannibal Rose, who held Tumut Plains as arun, received a grant of 1280 acres there, as an encouragement for settlement.
When Mr George Shelley married, he dissolved partnership with Mr Roland Shelley, who purchased his interest in Bombowlee Station; and Mr George Shelley purchased Mr Hannibul Rose's interest in Tumut Plains Run.
In the Gazette of 1866, this shows an area of 12,800 acres ; grazing capability, 800 head of cattle.
In these pioneer times, with stock down to starvation price, with hundreds ol blacks spearing their cattle and causing them to stampede in terror for miles, with roads as Nature left them, and the necessity of procuring food supplies and clothing from Sydney per medium of bullock teams (usually meaning three months' absence from home),
our early presidents had anything but a rosy time of it. Their residences were of the most primitive description - slab walls plastered with mortar to which chopped grass or horse hair had been added, roofs of stringy bark, earth floors as a rule, blocks and slabs, with four legs placed in them formed the principal sitting accommodation; their food was of the coarsest - beef and damper, the latter made of meal of their own grinding more wholesome and bone producing than the fine flour of to-day - hominy made of corn meal was a welcome addition.
Of course they had their own milk and butter, and the coarse living was far more productive of health than the delicate living now.
Gradually Tumut, by reason of its splendid climate, the wheat, maize and potatoes for their own re- quirements. It is one of the troubles of the Australian squatter that he is treated alternately to a feast or a famine. Nature is profuse at in- tervals, but has also her seasons of niggard- liness. Tumut, luckily, being so near to the Australian Alps, seldom suffers from drought. The river takes its rise in the angles formed by the Big Bogongs or Mane's Range and the Snowy or Bald Mountains, about 36deg 10m south latitude ????? deg 25m east longitude. It flows in a northerly direction for about 80 miles, through rugged, scrubby country, from its source above Talbingo, until it fulls into the Murrumbidgee about 8 miles north east of Gundagai. It meanders through Tal- bingo, Blowering, Tumut and Mingay on its way, and the strange thing is that it has a greater average volume of water flowing beneath the bridge at Tumut than it has at Gundagai, although the Tumut is but a tri- butary of the Murrumbidgee.
The first C.P.S. at Tumut was a Mr. Walker (appointed in 1845), afterwards and for many years Commandant of Native Police in Queensland. It la said of him that he was a clever and accomplished man, and sang a song which enraptured all hearers. He taught his native troopers songs from Italian operas, &c, and to hoar him sing "The Last Man" was considered a real vocal treat. This gentleman had a strong military turn, and, when one of Commissioner Bingham's troopers is said to have lost his way one night going to a maize field, he drew his sword and cut his way through the maize, much to the wonder of the owner when he looked at the state of his agriculture. People will wonder nowadays how it was an English gentleman would accept a position as a trooper under a commissioner. Many first class men, sometimes prosperous ones later on, had to accept anything going; there were few avenues indeed in their sphere of life. Splendid laboring hands, in 1846, worked for their grub. Mr Walker lived with Mr Henry Hilton, the chief constable, in a hut just where the Church of England has since been built. Mr Hilton was the son of a Liverpool merchant, and in the first instance acted as commissioner's clerk. Later he carried out the duties of postmaster and schoolteacher in the same quarters. Mr W S. Caswell, late Police Magistrate at Goul- burn, succeeded Mr Walker as C.P.S, taking up that office on June 7, 1847. There was no courthouse nor lockup, no town even. A store, kept by Messrs Strachan and Webb, was situated next the Show Ground. Strac- han was a Scotchman, and a very shrewd man at that, and a keen business man. Webb was the capitalist. He was an Irishman and related to one of the Irish patriots of that day. He was a Trinity College (Dublin) man and possessed remarkable talent, was witty, humorous and well informed. (To be continued) Young men about to marry should snap one of Fred Kinred's building blocks on his Railway Estate. They'll be worth double their value in a very few years.

1903 - Newspaper - Poisoning Rabbits. MIr. John Wilkinson, Yellowin Station, Tumut, who has had a number of years experience in poisoning rabbits, send us his recipe for boiing pollard. It is as follows:- To dissolve the phosphorus in bisul. of carblon take an ordinary pickle bottle, fill three parts full with water, pour in one table-spoonful of carbon; then add a stickle of phosphloruts (if broken into halves the better). It is not necessary to have the phosphorus covered by the carbon, but it should be covered with the water. The stick of phosphorus is suflicient to poison 12 quarts of pollard. add the pollard to tho required thickness with sweetened malt (add about one cup of sugar to four quarts of water), then add the contents of the pickle bottle, and stir in thoughily. The bait is then ready for use. Remember to keep the curbon away from fire, as it will explode quieker than gunpowder. A stick of phosphorous will dissolve in less than two minutes in boiling water (not two hours, as the Goulburn Board states), but he would advise the use of corbon, the same being cheap and much loss trouble in mixing. If poisoning for the skins, he would advise the following method:--Powdered strychnine added to apple just boiled to a mash. Add sugar after the stryohnine has been in the apple jam for half a day. Rabbits will take this bait equally as well as the pollard, if not better, and will all die close, so that the skin can be cared. - (Ref- Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940)(about) Previous issue Thursday 5 March 1903 Page 4).

Death of Mrs Edward Wilkinson. - The news of the death of Mrs. Charlotte Wilkinson, wife of Mr Edward Wilkinson, of Tumut, which occurred at her sister's (Mrs. Albert Newman) residence, Newcastle, early on Saturday morning, spread quite a pall over the community when it be came circulated, for no one had the slightest knowledge that her health was such that anything serious might be apprehended.
Four months ago the deceased went on an extended holiday for health reasons, asthma troubling her and her last letters home gave the impression that she had improved and in fact was feeling tolerably well. Beyond the telegraphic message that she had died suddenly at 4 a.m. on Saturday, no particulars reached Mr Wilkinson and his son Guy and daughter, Miss Doris (in Tumut), and until letters come by mail the exact cause of death will not be known locally.
The remains were brought to Tumut yesterday, Mrs. Alan Barton, deceased's daughter, travelling by the same train from Sydney. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon. A short service was conducted by Rev. T. A. Gair (C. of E.) at the family home in Wynyard Street, before the remains were removed to the hearse.
Messrs John Wilkinson (Yellowin), Thomas Wilkinson, Michael Downing, E. G. Bridle and Alan and Douglas Wilson acted as pall-bearers. The coffin and hearse were bestrewn with many beautiful wreaths-symbols of the deep regard for the deceased. It was a long cortege that followed to the grave, in the Church of England portion of the new cemetery, Rev. T. A. Gair officiating.
A sorrowing husband and a family of two sons and four daughters survive. The sons are:
1. Guy (Tumut) and
2. Edward (Junee); and daughters:
3. Brenda (Mrs. Alan Barton,- Sydney),
4. Madge (Mrs. Cyril Grill: Seven Hills),
5. Enid (Mrs. Matthew Caiman, Sydney),
6. Vida (Mrs Douglas Wilson, "Dalwood," Illabo) and
7. Miss Doris (Tumut).
The late Mrs. Wilkinson was 62 years of age. She was the daughter of the late Thomas Hill, of Tumut, was of a most amiable disposition, and took an active part in charitable, benevolent and many public matters in her time. She was a devoted wife and the care and welfare of her family were her paramount thoughts. She was a native of Tumut, and remained here all her life. Her friends and well wishers were Region, and these, with her relatives, deeply mourn her sudden demise. - (Ref- The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 24 March 1925 Page 2).

WEDDINGS - A pretty wedding was celebrated at All Saints' Church, Tumut, on Thursday afternoon last, when Rev. S. Broadfoot, the rector, united Beryl, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.

Mr. Rolf Wilkinson was his brother best man.- (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 4 March 1938 Page 47).
Mrs. Eggleton sr died at West Blowering yesterday.
Mr. P.E.N. Wilkinson, of Yellowin, purchased a magnificent 2-year-old Hereford bull at the R.A. Show sales of cattle. It is a remarkably well grown animal, bred by the exrs of the late R. W. White, Habenvale, Blanford. It was detrained at Tumut on Friday last, and created a deal of interest amongst cattle breeders as it was led from the railway station through the town to the Star Hotel, the new owner being congratulated on all sides upon his purchase.
Mr. Fred. Russell, who has just returned down after spending the summer in the mountains, says he can not remember a summer so bad for lightning. At his father's place, it struck a stump near the house and reduced it to splinters. The sound caused by the striking was deafening. Fifteen miles further on a man was killed. Around Kiandra, Long Plain, Nungar and Mt. Tantangora it struck trees by the dozens. Some were cut from the topmost leaf to the ground. The trunks were scattered for hundreds of yards around in small and large pieces.
At Blowering in Mr. J. C. Hargreaves' paddock, it set fire to the grass. In the morning he found two logs still alight. A shower, which fell shortly alter it struck put fire out. - (Ref- The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 5 April 1921 Page 3).

ACCIDENT On Wednesday last as Mr. J. Chalker was returning to Yellowin, after delivering Messrs Wilkinson Bros. cream, he capsized the waggonette be was driving and made a complete wreok of it.
The driver was severely bruised in one leg and the neighbors nearby had to go to Wilkinson's to get help to extricate him from his dangerous position.
We spoke of this road before and unless something is done there will be no end of accidents. There have been several cases previously of sulkies and spring carts being bogged, and we know of two teams that went from Tumut to Mr. John Wilkinson's (a distance of 20 miles) to load with maize. On arrival, one carrier put on 15 bags, but the other returned empty sooner than face the wretched road. - (Ref- The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 10 July 1906 Page 2).
