Bob Bolton Origins: Click Go the Shears (57* d) RE: Origins: Click Go the Shears 10 Jun 13


G'day again,

I just did a quick search on the (... probable ...) address of the author / transcriber / collector of this poem / ~song~ :

"... Now considered Victoria's newest township, Eynesbury was named after a town in the United Kingdom (north of London) where Simon Staughton was born (1797). Mr Staughton moved with his family to Australia in 1841 and settled on 101,000 acres which was subsequently subdivided in 1852..."

Eynesbury apparently wasn't yet a town at the time of these verses' publication ... but C.C. doesn't seem to have been a Staughton - unless he only initialed his 'given names'. Maybe he was the 'colonial experience' (- man)... !)

Regardles)s,

Bob
