On the table in the sitting-room were a quantity of books, among which I noticed the "Penny Magazine", some of Chambers' Works, and Bulvver's. A few yards from the doors were savages sleeping around their watchfires. Strange mixture of barbarism and civilisation!

According to J.O.Randell in his "Pastoral Settlement in Northern Victoria, Volume 2: The Campaspe District", William BERTRAM was granted a wine and beer license for the Campaspie Inn (sic) in September 1846, on the east bank of the Campaspe River, two miles below Henry BENNETT's Barnedown Station (p105). Randell says that the Campaspie Inn was situated 2 miles below the present Barnedown Bridge, a spot where a road from Melbourne to the Murray River crossed the Campaspe River (pp418-419). It was right on the boundary of the Muskerry and Campaspe River Stations (p530). On 29 Sep 1849 William Bertram, of Campaspie River, Labourer become Insolvent
The first church service in Dandenong was held on 21 July 1850 in Dunbar's Hotel and conducted by Rev. J.H. Gregory, a bush missionary. A local meeting was held soon after to discuss obtaining a permanent church building and a local committee was formed to coordinate its organisation.
The indefatigable work of the The Reverend J. H. Gregory, the "Bush Missionary," also provided services, with his covered wagon, a mobile vicarage--and his portable church, a tent, with which he itinerated on the Bendigo diggings.
St Matthew's Anglican Church, Cheltenham has among its treasures, also placed in the chapel was a small silver communion set originally given by 44 residents ‘in or near Cheltenham’ to the Rev J H Gregory in 1859 in recognition of his ministry in the very early days of the district’s European settlement.
June, 1873 Rev. J H Gregory All Saints Church, St Kilda seeking certain improvements on the reserve adjoining the school ground next to the Church.
Page 118 - July 5. 1851 — Rode to Maiden's Punt, where an enterprising individual from the Sydney side has arranged a ferry over the Murray, and started a very good inn. Here is already formed, or will shortly be formed, a Township. The hamlet now consists of an inn and about eight or ten huts, with a population of about thirty persons, of whom half are children, all very much neglected.
Page 150 Oct. 7. 1851 — Rode to Maiden's Inn on the Murray, where I received letters which w.ill cause me to ride down to Melbourne directly.
Oct. 8. — Swam my horse over the swollen Murray. Owing to the inundations, the punt, as the great ferry-boat is called, has ceased to work for five or six weeks. My horse was towed behind a boat, and in the middle of the river, getting entangled with the branches of an uprooted floating tree, was very nearly drowned. I went round in another boat a distance of two miles. On the Melbourne side saw a great number of drays camped, awaiting the resumption of the ferry, l rode to Barrow's Inn over thirty-five miles of well-grassed plains. My horse is an old Sydney horse, with a great deal of Arab blood in him, and very much addicted to stumbling. In fact, he fell with me once in the journey.
Oct. 9. — Accompanied by a friend, who was going to Kilmore, I rode to the Mac Ivor inn, a distance of forty miles, through a rich and picturesque country.

Also on board was Mary's married sister, Margaret Gillies accompanied by her husband, Archibald and their children Angus, Alexander and John. John Gillies died at sea on the 8th February 1850, aged one year, soon after leaving Plymouth. This would have saddened the family considerably on their long journey to their new home.
