'Castleton', Castle Road, Torquay, Devonshire, England
'Castleton', Castle Road, Torquay, Devonshire, England
This house was the home of William Distin Webber and his family for a number of years. They were certainly living there (at least) between 1881 and 1901. The house still stands today and is now the home of the Torbay Citizen's Advice Bureau.

'Pontefract': Home of Lebbeus Hordern, Melbourne. (c.1891)
'Pontefract': Home of Lebbeus Hordern, Melbourne. (c.1891)
'Pontefract', on the corner of Hardwicke Street and Whitehorse Road, was designed for Lebbeus Hordern by the architect, Mr H. J. Prockter. The 11 roomed house was designed with Marseilles pattern roofing tiles, large verandahs, and gables with Tudor detailing which were associated with the Queen Anne style of British housing.

'Pontefract' was built c.1891 on the western side of an allotment of land which comprised nine suburban plots. Sited on the brow of a hill it had superb views west across the Deepdene dip to Burke Road, north to the Great Dividing Range and east to the Dandenongs. Together with the Reid house Belmont, which was diagonally opposite on Whitehorse Road, Pontefract would have been a significant landmark for anyone travelling from Kew to Balwyn and beyond.

Between the house and Percy Street were paddocks where the Hordern's horses and cow grazed. The coach house and stables, with driver's quarters above, were located north of the house.

Louisa Hamilton, granddaughter of Lebbeus and Louisa Hordern, remembers her visits to Pontefract which she recalls as being light and airy - not at all like those Victorian houses with their dark and heavy furniture. Lebbeus and Louisa purchased much of the house furnishings when on an extended overseas trip in 1887. Louisa also remembers the large conservatory on the northern side of the house, her grandfather's photographic dark room beneath the dining room, and playing hide-and-seek in the extensive cellars under the house.

'Stramshall', 173 Auburn Road, Hawthorn, VIC
'Stramshall', 173 Auburn Road, Hawthorn, VIC
This is the home that was built for William Hordern and Cecilia Monger by her father, William Monger. The Horderns lived there until 1917. On the left is the house shortly after it was built and on the right, the house as it appeared when it was auctioned around 1964.

The auctioneers listing says this about the house:

"Constructed for William Hordern esq. at the beginning of the land boom of the 1880's, "Stramshall" is a spendid example of the Italianate form of architecture so popular in the late-victorian era.

During the decade, many of Melbourne's most imposing residences were built, generally occupying the choice hilltop locations in the burgeoning suburbs of the fledgling metropolis.

Remaining in the original owner's family until 1917, "Stramshall" was subsequently converted to flats and remained as such until 1965 when it was purchased by the present owners. Carefully restored to highlight its abundant architectural and decorative features and subtly upgraded to incorporate modern facilities, it has provided comfortable and charming accommodation for a large family for almost thirty years.

Of triple brick construction, set on massive bluestone foundations and roofed in Welsh slate, Stramshall is a stately and substantial residence of some 490 sq metres or approximately 53 squares, having twelve principal rooms of mansion proportions.

On the ground floor a spectacular tessellated entrance foyer and stair hall open to three grand reception rooms and the current owners' master bedroom, which could be utilised as a fourth living area if desired. There is a well equipped Brazillian black bean kitchen, a cosy study with access to the walk-down wine cellar and a luxuriously appointed bathroom. The first floor comprises four enormous bedrooms, two complete bathrooms and a further two double bedrooms and kitchenette, the latter being readily adaptable to a self-contained granny flat if required. A wide return verandah on the ground floor and corresponding balcony on the first floor are both trimmed in elaborate cast iron filigree.

No fewer than eight marble fireplaces including two exquisite rouge marble examples grace the main rooms and original plaster work and detailed joinery are retained in beautifully preserved condition."

Abbey Palace of Royaumont, near Chantilly, France (4:41)
Abbey Palace of Royaumont, near Chantilly, France (4:41)
Abbey Palace of Royaumont near Chantilly, is a late 18th-century mansion designed by Louis Le Masson for the Abbot of Royaumont, Henri Eléonore Le Cornut de Balivière, chaplain of Louis XVI. The actual abbey was destroyed in the French Revolution, but the Abbey Palace survived.

The mansion changed hands until it was eventually bought by Baron and Baroness Eugène Fould-Springer in 1923. Their grandson Nathaniel de Rothschild immediately set out to restore the "magnificent property" and give it a "soul."

The Fould-Springers carefully selected works of art, furniture, lighting, clocks and ceramics that reflected the stately beauty of the house.

Although Abbey Palace hasn't been regularly lived in by the descendants of Baron and Baroness Fould-Springer since the late 1980s, it remains a pride of the family. Rothschild says in the Christies auction catalogue, that he long looked for the best way of preserving the integrity of the property, a solution that he has now found. It is to become a high-quality seminar centre. This requires modernisation and, as a result, the contents of the Abbey Palace were sold at auction in September 2011 raising over €7M.

This video was produced by Christies as part of a guide to the contents of the house.

Allied Military Currency - WW2
Allied Military Currency - WW2
Allied Military Currency was issued for use in France, Germany, Italy and Japan and for a short time in Korea, Denmark and Austria. The currency was issued to combat the effects of black market activity and the associated need to stabilise the local economy. They were issued to military personnel generally for use on base only. When, for example, the Germans left Greece, they first flooded the country with counterfeit currency to de-stabilise the economy. AMC was issued to the allies until the local currency stabilised. (Notes dated 1943)

Australian Convict Muster - 1825 (Extract)
Australian Convict Muster - 1825 (Extract)
On this muster appear Anthony Hordern and his family. Although difficult to read, the colume headings appear to be: Name; Age; Class; Vessel; Yr of Arrival; Sentence; Employment. In the case of Anthony, it would appear that he arrived in 1825 aboard the 'Phoenix', that his sentence was 7 years and his employment was 'Coach Maker'. This agrees with the biographical account in the Australian Dictionary of Biographies (see 'Owner/Source', below)

Also on this document are sons, Anthony and John, daughter Elizabeth and wife Ann (nee Woodhead).

Bighton Village Shop and Post Office c.1915
This shop was home (and work) to John and Harriet Butcher for a number of years. John was a Baker and he and his wife ran a bakery from the shop and post office store until their death in 1860. During those years, they were ably assisted by their newphew, Isaac Norgate. Isaac followed in the footsteps of his uncle and was probably trained by him.

After the death of John and Harriet, Isaac - who never married - took over the shop and served the village for the rest of his life - a total of 60 years!

Which database fields are searched

Media items are images, documents of various types, and even recordings or videos that are attached to people, events, and places, and are defined in a database table. This page searches three descriptive fields in that table:

  1. Title, which is no more than one line long. All media items have a title.
    (The title of each media item is listed in the "Description" column in the search results, and serves as a hyperlink that displayes the full media item.)
  2. Description is longer than the title, but usually no more than a few lines long. Media items should have a description, but many do not.
    (The description of each media item is also listed in the "Description" column the search results.)
  3. BodyText is a block of text that
    • Can be arbitrarily large,
    • Typically supplies additional information about a media item, and
    • Can have rich formatting (i.e. headings, paragraphs, bold text, colors, etc.)
    (The BodyText value of a media item can be seen only if you view the full media item.)

Significantly, not all media items are individual files; the entire text of some stories is stored in the media item's BodyText field rather than in a separate Word, PDF, or HTML document.

425,240
What's in the 'Gallery'
The Gallery shows just thumbnail images; no descriptive text to identify media items. It may be useful only for photos. Significantly, media items without thumbnails do not appear in the Gallery.

Media items that are not likely to have thumbnails include

  1. Non-images such as Word documents, PDF's, HTML pages, etc.
  2. Images that were scanned from books and other documents. In truth, it wouldn't be hard to generate thumbnails for those images, and some do have thumbnails, but it isn't generally worthwhile to do so, since thumbnails of scanned documents are usually too small to reveal anything useful about the document.
This help message window can be dragged out of the way, and left on the screen as long as you need it.
