"BLOCKS ARE QUAGMIRES"
"I wish the Health Officer would take a birds-eye view of the shocking drainage around these parts," wrote Mrs. V. Blackwell, Nar Nar Goon. Paul Blackwell's property had been under water nearly all the year, she declared. The backs of the blocks in Mulcare street were quagmires. It was impossible to walk into the back of any house. There was absolutely no outlet for the water. There was nothing worse than continual dampness to cause T. B., she added. The engineer explained that Mrs. Blackwell's place was further in from the work already done. The fall from Mulcare street was south. The place could not be drained from the end. Cr. Dore moved that Mr. Moore be written to asking if drain were continued, would he be prepared to take the water. Seconded by Cr. M. J. Bourke.-The motion was carried.

Table Talk (Melbourne, Vic. : 1885 - 1939) Thursday 13 April 1922 Page 13
http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/147419163
The engagement is announced of Miss Mia McIntosh Fraser Edward, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. Edward, ''Edinburgh," Champion-street, Brighton Beach (late Ascot Vale), to Mr Robert Bernard Blackwell, second son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Blackwell, of Nar-Nar-Goon, Gippsland.

This engagement seems to have been ended as Bob did not marry Mia Edward and a couple of years later she married someone else.

Robert lived for many years in Clayton and Malvern. Towards the end of his life he moved to Cairns FNQ where he and Rita lived in a Granny flat at the home of Rita's daughter Eileen. Bob was able to recount memories of his time living in England and was able to pass on many family stories and information in a tape recorded letter to his nephew Geoff Blackwell in the late 1980's shortly before his death. These memories have proved an invaluable source of information.

Notes
General:
William married Evangaline Adams at the Regent Square Wesleyan Chapel by William Johnson. The witnesses to the marriage were Henry Garwood and Beatrice Adams.

William then married Primrose Darlow at St Andrews Church in Kettering by Frederic Llewellyn Dean. Witnesses to the marriage were William Darlow and Sarah Darlow.

At the 1871 and 1881 Census William was living at High Street Higham Ferrers. His occupation in 1881 was given as a shoe clicker. Shoemaker

The family story was that William left England around 1909 on the ship Arawa and travelled to Melbourne, Vic, Australia, where he found work and earned enough money to send for his family about 2 years later. It was thought that William's intended destination was Western Australia, but it now appears that story was inaccurate.

We now know that William Blackwell left London, England on the ship the Arawa which sailed on the 3rd of September 1910 and arrived in Hobart on the 15th March 1911. How and when he arrived in Melbourne is unknown. It is not known if the Arawa docked in Melbourne and William disembarked, or if he went to Hobart and somehow made his way to Melbourne at a later time.

Ada Primrose left England on 9 October 1911 on the Ship Demosthenes on a 54 day voyage to Melbourne, Vic, Australia, to meet her husband. With her were her step daughter, Inez, 19, and children Doris 15, Gilbert 14, Bernie 11, Vincent (Toby) 9, Ethel 8, Douglas 6, and Phyllis 3.

William met his family in Melbourne. He was share farming at Allambee at the time. As there was no work at Allambee for Inez, she remained in Melbourne. The remainder of the family travelled to Allambee with William. Some time later, William was seriously gored by a bull at Allambee and was unable to return to work on the farm, so after approximately 2 years at Allambee, the family moved to Nar Nar Goon, Vic, Australia, were William opened a boot makers shop. Robert Bernard Blackwell recounted how Allambee was totally covered by huge redgums and the family would lie in bed at night and hear the trees cracking and falling down in bad weather. One of the jobs on the farm was to clear the gum trees.

Inez had a dispute with her step mother a few years later and was never seen or heard from by the family again. I was finally able to trace Inez in early 2012.

Notes
General:
Archibald and his brothers James Allan and Andrew Joseph Blackwood all fought in WW1. Archibald was taken on strength in 1916 at Tel-el-Kebire, Egypt and landed in Marseilles in June 1916. He was then taken on strength of the 1st Anzac Light Horse. It seems that Archibald and Andrew's military records are very similar as they seem to have stuck together throughout the war and it would appear that they had both been AWOL together on the same dates. They both returned to Australia together with their older brother returning home about a week earlier. Archibald married Elsie in 1924 and applied for a solider settler block and was granted land at Nar Nar Goon where he seems to have remained for the rest of his life. Elsie and Archibald had four sons and two daughters according to Elsie's death notice in 1949.
