This week, I am featuring articles for an ancestor from my ex-husband’s side of the family, his 2x great grandfather David Clyne (1825-1896). I had gone through my 2x great grandparents, and, while I did find some articles for them, they were nearly all family notices, so there didn’t seem to be enough detail for a Trove Tuesday post. I had the opposite problem with David – there are so many articles, I am going to need to do a couple of posts for him.
There were 2085 articles for the name David Clyne, just in Victoria. To narrow down my search to articles for this David, I decided to search by decade, starting in the 1850s, when David first arrived in Victoria.
There were 8 articles in total in the 1850s, but I am sharing just two.
In the 1860s there were 211 articles. I decided to skip the Advertising (75), and Detailed Lists, Results and Guides (8), and was still left with 128 Articles. I am therefore just sharing a few of these articles from the 1860s.
David won numerous awards in Agricultural shows, and I am featuring two of these articles.
Since this second article was quite long, I have just included the section with the awards for David Clyne.
There were also a few articles about Impoundings, mentioning David Clyne. The following is one of those articles.
David was also the victim of alleged horse stealing.
And my final article for this week is about the death of his celebrated horse.
Next week, I will be featuring more articles for David Clyne.
