    Public

    List of articles on the Ordiyal Estate at Clyde. Ordiyal was located at in the Parish of Sherwood - Sections 8 and 19, part sections 9,10,11 and 12 and Portions 47,48 and 49 - all up just over 2,469 acres. It was originally owned by John Bakewell, then W.S. Cox. In 1883, W.S. Cox put the property up for sale and there is map of the property at the State Library of Victoria (link in list) where the property is spelt as Oordiyalyal. In the 1930s the Scouts used this term for their Easter Camp and it is said to be an Indigenous term for "the gathering of the tribes". William Samuel Cox (1831-1895) was a racehorse owner and breeder, established the Moonee Valley racecourse and the namesake of the horse race, the Cox plate. Ordiyal was purchased by Robert Chirnside of Mount Rothwell, Little River. He then put the land up for lease in 1886. Robert Chirnside died May 3, 1902 at the age of 71. He was the son of Peter Chirnside and Margaret Bell and the nephew of Thomas and Andrew Chirnside, the brothers who built Werribee Park mansion. The land was sold out of the Chirnside family in 1909.
