Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – David Clyne from 1870 to his death

David’s son Frederick was born at Burrumbeet (near Ballarat) in 1872, and his daughter Mary Anne Bella was born at Newry (in Gippsland) in 1875 (her name is listed as Mary Anne Bella on her birth entry, but as Jessie Anne Isabella on her death entry).  The following sale appears to be in preparation for the move.

Another article from 1880 gave the reasons why David had moved from Ballarat to Gippsland. This article was quite long, so I have just included the 1st two sections
