    Public

    The List is arranged in two parts; (a) dedicated to Andrew, (b) dedicated to William.

    GARDINER, OAKLEIGH and MULGRAVE

    Trove and Genealogy inform there were three Bates brothers known to these districts.
    John George BATES (1827 – 1888), drayman
    Andrew BATES (1835 – 1887), contractor, tollkeeper
    William Samuel BATES (1839 – 1905), drayman, dairyman

    John arrived in the Gardiner - Oakleigh district in c1856, followed by Andrew in c1861 and William temporally in c1870.
    John and Andrew were probably tenants during their early years. John eventually purchased land on Poath road, and Andrew later settled on 5 acres of freehold between Westbrook Street, Oakleigh and Sandy creek.
    As found below; Trove informs Andrew Bates senior was initially a private contractor (road building) winning contracts in both the Gardiner and Mulgrave municipalities, and later won contracts as tollkeeper on the Scotchman’s Creek road.
    [ Refer Scotchman’s Creek Road List for more information http://trove.nla.gov.au/list?id=72527 ]
    Bates’ son, Andrew, had known association with James Dempsey as dairymen.
    The Bates siblings were natives of County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. John arrived with his sister Ann, in 1850. Andrew arrived with wife Isabella Richie in 1856, and possibly along with William. William married Honoria Carroll in 1862.

    MOUNTFIELD FARM, Warrigal road, Gardiner (Oakleigh)
    At its peak this farm occupied some 120 acres and straddled, Batesford and Warrigal roads. Its origins began in March 1870 when Melbourne dairyman, William Samuel Bates, purchased a piece of land (CPs 188 to 191, parish of Prahran) from, auctioneer and land speculator, William Easey.
    Wm. S. Bates added CP 187 and two allotments on CP 45, parish of Mulgrave in 1875. Further research is required to establish whether William built the weatherboard “Mountfied” homestead fronting Warrigal road, however, he appears to have made it his prime residence in c1887. (Having moved from Little Bourke street, Melbourne.) In April 1878 Wm S. Bates sold a portion of CP 188, one chain wide, to the Gardiner and Oakleigh shires, for the opening up of Warrigal road. [Refer Warrigal Road - Gardiner's Creek List http://trove.nla.gov.au/list?id=72011 ] An advertised ‘Clearance Sale’ in June 1897 probably describes this dairy-farm at its peak. Glimpses of the old ‘Mountfield’ homestead can be had when carefully viewing old photographs (mostly aerial) of the Holmesglen district.

    BATESFORD ROAD, Chadstone
    J. B. Cooper** associated the name of this road with a milk-man named Andrew Bates, yet, there is no primary-evidence in land records to support this. However, such evidence points directly to William S. BATES (Mountfield farm) as the appropriate the candidate. Do the Malvern Rate Books reveal the existence of a tenant named Smith in this vicinity? Meanwhile in the search for Smith; researchers and historians should not overlook local activities on CP 45, parish of Mulgrave.
    For example; in May 1855, James John Smith, labourer, Prahran, purchased 5 acres (fronting a proposed Government road) from John Collings. Mr. J. J. Smith turned those acres into a market-garden, remaining at that address until his death in 1889. By coincidence, Smith’s land lay exactly opposite a thoroughfare leading to Scotchman’s creek (Waverley) road. But to gain access to said road Smith needed to first traverse a shallow tributary to Gardiner’s Creek, which, in wet weather, flowed across a yet unmade Warrigal road. (Recognised to-day as the intersection of Batesford and Warrigal roads). The possibility then arises. Was this road-crossing Smith’s Ford, and did the road leading to it inherit the name? According to Trove the Batesford tag probably appeared after Smith’s death in 1889.

    SUDDEN DEATH AT OAKLEIGH.
    A magisterial inquiry was held on Saturday by Mr. T. Irwin, J.P., into the circumstances of the death of a man named James John Smith. The deceased, who was a colonist of 45 years, and had been a resident of Mulgrave for nearly 40 (35)* years, was found lying dead on the Warrigal-road, near the Waverley road, at about half-past 7 o'clock on Saturday morning. It appears that he had been in Oakleigh to see his wife, who is staying with a lady there, on the previous evening, and had left her to go home about 9 o'clock, and he must have fallen in passing over some rough ground at the spot where the body was found.
