Comet Villiage Tramway Driver: Cir 1890, Comet Village, Wandong, Victoria.

Bill was a driver on the Comet Village & Sawmill Tramway

An undated cutting of the Kilmore Advertiser, which was in the possession of a Miss Taylor from Kilmore gives the following account of a visit by inspectors of the Kilmore Water Trust to the Hazel Creek headworks of the scheme, which they traversed by way of the Comet tramway


... Leaving Wandong about 9 O'clock comfortably seated in the passenger car drawn by three staunch horses, the party journeyed pleasantly along an upgrade 4+ miles until the famous 'Bump' was reached.
Here the horses were dispensed with and the car coupled onto a steel cable where there is a steep drop of some hundreds of feet mainly over trellised bridgework, which makes one shudder to look down and contemplate the awful possibility of the breakage of the cable, any slight accident, the inevitable ending of which would be fearful death to all concerned....and many a fervent prayer was silently uttered during the perilous descent.

Leaving the cable, the party had another exciting ride.

.....Again the services of horseflesh are dispensed with and the party is left to the mercy of the driver, Mr William Patton, who takes charge of them and with a handbrake guides his load of living freight over declivities and around abnormally sharp curves at a pace that strikes terror into the hearts of the stoutest comissioners. The horses are picked up once more and a steady rise of about 1000 feet is made until the Comet Mills are reached.

Wandong Athletic Club.
From a Correspondent.

The annual sports of the above club were held on New Year's Day and passed off in good style. The day was perfect for the outing and the attendance large.

The programme was too lengthy to be completed in the limited time, and the concert at night was also cancelled, but the dance was well attended and continued until daylight the next morning.
There was a publican's booth on the sports ground, also fruit and refreshment stalls, and all appeared to do good business.
The various contests were interesting, the dancing particularly so.

The Sheffield handicap was won by Holmes of Wallan, with Faulks (Wandong) and Ross (Broadford) third. Ryan (Broadford) was successful in the 75 yards sprint, Faulks and Holmes filling the minor places.

The wood chopping contests brought together some expert cutters and much interest was taken by the spectators. The standing block 40-inch chop was won by W.Jenkins, Clonbinane. H.McDonel (Broadford) being second and Hill (Broadford) third. In the 45-inch underhand chop Wentworth finished first, Shider being a close second and McDonel third. Jenkins also won the chop for local competitors, with E.Russell second.

The step dancing took place on a specially erected platform, the music being supplied by a Scotsman in full uniform with bagpipes, and five little girls, ranging from four years to 12 years, in full Scottish costume, did the dancing, which included the Reel 'o' Tullock and Highland Fling. Joyce Davidson being placed first and Zema Gallaher second. The Sailor's hornpipe, Irish reel and Irish jig were splendidly danced by half a dozen little girls J.Davidson (4 years old), Tassy Doyle, E.Kruse, G.Davidson, C.Doyle and E.Kerise. The children also dance the Highland fling. Stepping a chain was won by E.D.Balmer, Reedy Creek.

The horse event brought out eight jumpers, and after keen competition Mat Quillinan (Bylands) won with Highland Laddie. The hunters were J.Dew's Creamy, T.Quinn's Mountain Belle, G.Cahill's Larry, A.Saunders Derby, N.Budd's Jackaroo, - Smith's Irish Mollie and - Murphy's Jack Adallo. Derby fell over the second fence, but no damage was done.

The judges in the hunters' event were Messrs John Neill (Broadford), W.Patton, sen., and K.McDonel (Wandong).

Caroline Alice Mary Scott who married Charles Douglas Patton (1859 - 1922) was the Great-Grand-daughter of Captain John Scott who sailed with Horatio Nelson.

The following excerpt is from an article in the Weekly Times, Wednesday 3rd February 1954 (page 48) - Interview with Marian Elizabeth "May" Patton (Caroline's daughter). For the full article go to May's information.

One of Miss Patton's most prized possessions is a framed testimonial letter written by Lord Nelson to her great-great grand father, Captain John Scott Captain Scott was both private secretary and chaplain to Lord Nelson. The letter was written on board the Victory and dated August 17, 1805, just a short time before the flagship set sail to do battle with the French Navy. "It is said," Miss Patton tells you, "that Nelson actually fell in Scott's blood. During the Battle of Trafalgar when my great -
great - grandfather was shot, Nelson asked 'Is that poor Scott?' A short time later Nelson fell at the same spot."
Tracing back her family history is, for Miss Patton an interesting pastime.
Famous writer, Sir Walter Scott, is on her family tree, "and that's probably where I inherited my flair. 'she says with a twinkle in her eyes.

Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson

Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, 1st Duke of Bronté KB (29 September 1758 - 21 October 1805) was a British flag officer in the Royal Navy. He was noted for his inspirational leadership, superb grasp of strategy, and unconventional tactics, which together resulted in a number of decisive naval victories, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars. He was wounded several times in combat, losing the sight in one eye in Corsica and most of one arm in the unsuccessful attempt to conquer Santa Cruz de Tenerife. He was shot and killed during his final victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

The Death of Captain John Scott

Battle is joined

Victory came under fire, initially passing wide, but then with greater accuracy as the distances decreased. A cannonball struck and killed Nelson's secretary, John Scott, nearly cutting him in two. Hardy's clerk took over, but he too was almost immediately killed. Victory's wheel was shot away, and another cannonball cut down eight marines. Hardy, standing next to Nelson on the quarterdeck, had his shoe buckle dented by a splinter. Nelson observed, "This is too warm work to last long." The Victory had by now reached the enemy line, and Hardy asked Nelson which ship to engage first. Nelson told him to take his pick, and Hardy moved Victory across the stern of the 80-gun French flagship Bucentaure. Victory then came under fire from the 74-gun Redoutable, lying off the Bucentaure's stern, and the 130-gun Santísima Trinidad. As sharpshooters from the enemy ships fired onto Victory's deck from their rigging, Nelson and Hardy continued to walk about, directing and giving orders.

As a child she came with her parents to Wallan East and remained there until the time of her death.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 132 M    i. Charles William PATTON 114 was born in 1881 in Wandong, Victoria 3758,114 died on 29 Apr 1947 in Wallan, Victoria 3756114 at age 66, and was buried on 30 Apr 1947 in Wallan Cemetery, Wallan, Victoria 3756.67

Marian was known by her family as May.

Unmarried, she worked for a Melbourne clothing manufacturer as a cutter and designer for thirty years, returning home to nurse her ailing mother. This may have been around the time that Caroline fell and broke her hip.

During this period May found that she could compose a wide range of lyrics, from hymns to romantic songs. She won monthly competitions of the Melbourne Bread and Cheese Club and several of her songs, for which she also wrote the music, were published.

In a review of her talents in the Weekly Times of 3 February, 1954, a reporter epitomised her inspiration:

"Many of Miss Pattons' lyrics and poems are based on scenes and happenings of her childhood days, and her eyes sparkle as she relives the memories again. Her nostalgic regard for the past is particularly expressed in one verse of her poem 'The Old Home', an elegaic tribute
to her mother, her brothers, and her home..... "

This poem has also been published in the historical account of the Wallan area, 'Pretty Sally's Hill' by J.W.Payne 1981 and it was this poem that Marian incorporated into a Christmas card which she sent to family members in the Christmas of 1953. This card also included a photo on the front, of the home of Charles Douglas & Caroline Mary Alice "Shaldon Cottage" Wallan East with the inscription "In Memory of Wallan" It is with thanks that we acknowledge Grace Gowler (nee Patton) who allowed us to copy her Christmas card and include it in this journal.

THE OLD HOME, by M. E. Patton

The house 'neath the hill, is so silent and still,
Peopled only by echoes today,
Of the shouts of the boys, and the innocent joys
Of the younger children at play.

The oak Mother grew, nearly hides it from view,
Its limbs too sturdy to train;
The trees we daren't fell, Mother loved them so well,
Are dying, one by one, in the lane.

The silence profound, the garden around,
It too has gone to decay,
Though the daffodils fair, that I planted with care,
By the side of the path, bloom today.

There's the old cricket pitch;
the pride with which No grass was allowed to grow,
The way they would play, on a blazing day,
And with drinks would run to and fro.

So silent the house; you could hear a mouse,
If it just crept across the floor,
But I think of the noise, the night two of the boys,
In a fright, crashed down the door.

"The men are home, there's a lot to be done,"
So tonight I must hurry the tea,
There's a dance at the Hall, and they're sure to call,
"Aren't you ready yet ?" to me.

They still can chaff, with a hearty laugh,
Of the things they used to share,
Of the milk one drank, when a cat had sank,
In a bucket left standing there.

If they came home late, a plate to take,
Some "Football supper" to find,
Some coffee to make, or scones and cake,
That Mother had left behind.

Oh! house 'neath the hill, so lonely and still,
Could I just for a space return,
To those dear old days, and those same old ways,
Though Life's lesson I had to learn.

As I walk up the lane, I hear once again,
The call for a turn at the wheel,
While the axe is ground, for the Dad is bound
To feel the edge of its steel.

The vice and the wrench, and the old work bench,
In fancy I still see there,
While the whip's sharp crack, "Come-eea Prince; Wo back Jack," Steal
out on the quiet air.

The forge that creaked, and the anvil peaked,
Were set at the top of the lane,
Where the wheels Dad made, were proudly displayed,
Could we know he'd ne'er use them again.

Now it all is blurred; ah! surely I heard
A sound from over the hill,
Of the creak of a dray, and horse's soft neigh,
In the team coming home from the Mill.

But it all is o'er, they will run no more,
From the house to the garden gate,
Their eyes to strain, "Did Mother come in that train ?"
Or for Dad from work home late,

Time's wheels go round though we hear no sound,
And they carry us all away,
From the love we knew, and the hearts so true,
That cared for us till that day.

Though we offer a prayer, for their love and their care,
Enough we could never say,
For the home 'neath the hill, so lonely and still,
And its memories so grave and gay.


+ 134 M    iii. Douglas William Arthur PATTON [182967844] 112 was born on 25 May 1884 in Wallan, Victoria 3756,73 died on 8 Dec 1969 in Longwood, Shire of Strathbogie, Victoria 366531 at age 85, and was buried on 10 Dec 1969 in Fawkner Cemetery & Crematorium, Fawkner, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.


An interview conducted by Gary Patton with his Grandfather Ernie Patton on the 11th December 1996.


Douglas was born in a house just out from Wallan near the turn-off to Wandong & Whittlesea.

When he was young he was playing at a creek near his home, whilst attempting to jump the Merri Creek he landed awkwardly breaking his right hip.

He was to undergo numerous operations in an attempt to rectify the damage which manifested itself in him having one leg shorter than the other.

During the years following his accident his brother Arthur would loyally carry him to school, this was no insignificant feat as the boys used to go to the Upper Plenty School. Arthur would have to cart his brother all the way down the Gap Road to get to school, and home again.

Douglas was subsequently fitted with an elevated shoe to compensate for the difference in his leg length.

As a young man, Douglas worked with his father and brothers in the sawmill at the Wallan railyards (later known as Wallan East when the main township moved towards the old Hume Highway), (as mentioned in information relating to his father)

Douglas, with his wife Ina, and family moved to Merlyston, a suburb of Melbourne, where he and his two sons Douglas (Doug) and Ernest (Ernie) opened and operated a wood yard at 41 Boundary Road, Merlynston. Their home was situated on the same block of land. It was to here that Doug (Jnr) would cart timber in the back of an old Dodge car from Wallan to Merlynston, where it would be cut at the wood yard and sold as firewood in and around Melbourne. They then moved to 172 O'Hea's Road in Coburg, it was at this home that they were living when Douglas' wife, Ina, died.

Douglas, his daughter Carrie (Caroline) and elder son Doug Jnr, went to live at Longwood for a very brief period of time for the purpose of obtaining work cutting timber. Following this they then returned to their home in Melbourne.

Whilst cutting timber in a large shed at 1044 Sydney Road, Coburg, Douglas was involved in an accident.
As he was pushing the timber through the saw he had all four fingers on his right hand ripped off by the blades.
Following surgical intervention they were able to successfully reattach his index finger by wiring it to the joint. It was at this time that his doctor 'jokingly' remarked that if he wanted to remove the index finger to 'come back and see him as he could do a cleaner job of it'. This was obviously in reference to the condition of Douglas' other amputated fingers.
To protect the stubs of the fingers of his right hand Douglas wore a leather shield.
Almost 6 weeks following the original accident Douglas was to again suffer an injury at the hands of a saw blade, and in deference to his doctors advice, he cut off his right index finger.

It was in 1942 that Douglas again returned to Longwood, this time with Carrie and Ernie and Mavis with their young family (Shirley & lan). This was again, supposedly, intended as a short term 12 month stay.

Douglas and Ernie were to be employed by a Mr Dudley, only for a period of 12 months.
The purpose of this arrangement was for Douglas, Ernie and Doug (he arrived approximately 6 months after the rest of the family with his wife Molly and young daughter Mary), to 'cut-out' a stack of timber for Mr Dudley.

Douglas, Carrie, Ernie and his family first moved in with the family of Jack Houston in the old hotel (turned residence) at the corner of Hill & Hurley Streets (this house is still owned by the Houston family)
The only other house that Douglas and Carrie lived in was when, as the only remaining Patton family members still living in the Houston household, they jointly purchased with Ernie the house(s) on the corner of Maxfield and Withers Streets.

Douglas became known by his grandchildren and great granchildren as Dar. It was by this name that Dar is fondly remembered in his role as patriarch of the Patton family and his skill and handiwork at carpentry in which he produced a number of items of furniture for his family.
Calling him Dar also created a link to our Scottish roots that many children in the family were unaware of at the time.

A cabinet which he created following the birth of his great grandson Gary, as a baby wardrobe, is still a proud possession for Gary to this day.

As it turned out, Douglas lived in Longwood until his death, and in 1996 Ernie was still joking about the original 12 months that turned into more than half a century.

James Sullivan Collins, who married Bessie Patton came from Western Australia to GIppsland in March 1910 to open up the Goodwood Timber and Tramway Company's sawmill in the Mullungdung Forest. This is just near my parents own dairy farm in the town of Woodside. In fact, Goodwood is still marked by signage in the Forest and you can see some remnants (posts etc.) in the area. There was a small book put together by the granddaughter of Elizabeth Collins (Green) about Goodwood. James Snr was the Mill Manager. It states - "James Collins surveyed the tramline that was to be laid to Port Albert from the mill, a distance of some twenty miles. He was married and had three sons and a daughter. His daughter, Elizabeth, married an employee of the mill, Arnold Green and they had three sons. Unfortunately, she died of tuberculosis when she was only about thirty-one years of age. James's sons, James (junior) and WIlliam, worked at the mill and Geoffrey, the youngest went to school there. James managed the Mill for ten years and took keen interest in sport, especially that of the local football team. After the mill closed down he went to Neerim where the Goodwood Company commenced operations on a much larger scale. After several years as manager he returned to help operate his sons' sawmill near the old Goodwood forest area. He did on July 22, 1938 aged 76 years. He was buried in Yarram cemetery."

We regret to announce the death of a well known resident in the district of Wandong in the person of Mr. David Campbell, husband of Charlotte Campbell, which occurred at his residence, Wandong, on Monday 10th July, at the age of 62 years.
Although the deceased's illness was of short duration, his passing came as a great shock to his widow and daughter and relatives.

The deceased was the son of the late William and Ann Campbell, who came from the old country in the early days and selected land at Geelong, where deceased was born and spent his schooldays. As a young man he served his apprenticeship at the baking trade, and he then came to Wandong, where he was employed by a Mr. M. A. Simpson for a number of years.

He married Miss Charlotte Patton, of Wandong, and there were two children of the union, one son being predeceased. He took a keen interest in all sporting matters in the district, and was well known and highly respected.

Left to mourn their loss are his widow, daughter (Lottie) and one grandchild, to whom we extend our deepest, sympathy. The funeral was largely attended and numerous floral tributes were received from friends in the district.

The remains were interred in the Wallan Cemetery. Mr. Dann officiated, and Mr. Graham Diggle carried out the funeral arrangements.
Pall-bearers were: Messrs W. Collins, W. Patton, P. Davern, J. Collins, J. Quillinan, H. McDonald, M. Quillinan, J. Shiel.
