AULAY MCKINLAY and JANE MCKINLAY (nee CHALMERS): Aulay McKinlay was born about 1807 in Rhu, Dumbarton, Scotland, he arrived in Australia in 1853 on the Sophia Burbidge with two of his sons John and Alexander, travelling from Glasgow. Jane (Jean) Chalmers b.1810 Glasgow was married to Aulay in 1830 in Glasgow.  Aulay was variously described as a Merchant/Agent/Woollen Draper/ Hosier.  On arrival in Victoria he was registered as a Spirit Merchant at Row St, Sandridge. Jean and Aulay had 13 children, 8 of whom survived childhood.  Jane arrived in Victoria in 1855 on the White Eagle with her remaining children James, Mary, George, Aulay, Thomas and Gilbert. At first the family lived in Ballarat but by 1860 Aulay and Jane were living in Lamplough.  Records show that from at least 1861 to 1865 they lived at McCullums Creek.  In September 1861 Aulay was declared insolvent, (Vic Govt Gazette no 142 p.1814, Sept 24, 1861).  Aulay died at McCullums Creek in March 1865 from spinal injuries and is buried in Majorca, informant was his son Alexander of McCullums Creek.  Jane died at Doveton Street, Ballarat 1889. Of their children Mary McAulay McKinlay married William Jeffrey and lived in Ballarat; Alexander Chalmers McKinlay, a storekeeper and butcher in Egerton married Christina Heatly; Thomas Chalmers McKinlay married Nannie Lander in 1900 in Melbourne and at Ballarat four months later he murdered her.  Thomas received a lenient 10 year sentence and died at Lidcombe NSW in 1921. Gilbert Tennant McKinlay married Annie Colville in Ballarat in 1874 and had a very successful department store in Launceston, Tasmania.  Annie died in 1904 and Gilbert married Kate Salter in 1913.  He died in 1937 in Launceston. Aulay and Jane McKinlay were my Gr Gr Grandparents and Mary McKinlay and William Jeffrey were my Gr Grandparents.  Their only child Emma Mary (adopted) was a schoolteacher, teaching variously at small country schools. She married John Martin who was also a teacher in Ballarat.  When John retired in 1930 he was head teacher at Ballarat East, Queens Street. Contact:

McVICAR, JAMES CAROLINE: On 28 April 1859, The Age newspaper had reported “The new rush at the Mountain Hut, Avoca, seems to be attracting considerable attention and these diggings will probably, if the reports may be relied upon, soon become of importance. Already, according to a statement published in The Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser, there is a population of about 600. The diggings are chiefly of hill sinking, depths from 3 feet to 45 feet yielding from 4dwt to one and a half ounces to the load; the gold is coarse, and the sinking very hard, being through a thick stratum of cement. The stuff has to be carted two or three miles to the Bulldog Creek, but when the rainy season sets in it is anticipated that there will be a sufficiency of water in the neighbourhood. “Strangman reports that large numbers of people from Mountain Hut were part of the 3,000 rushing to Lamplough in 1859. It is not known whether the McVicar family were in Mountain Hut before they were at Lamplough, but certainly, while they were running the Glasgow Store in Lamplough, they would have met many people with experience of the Mountain Hut diggings. It is not known why James and Caroline, half a world away from Glasgow and London, and far from the sea and the world of books, eventually chose Mountain Hut to settle. A granddaughter of James and Caroline, Lil Cullinan, wrote that Caroline was the first schoolteacher at Mountain Hut. This has not yet been confirmed by any other source, but may be in the originals of the records, which apparently are extensive because the school closed in 1885 and the records were sent to the Government Archives where they have been preserved. The summary of the records in the official history of the Victorian Education Department, Vision and Realisation, Volume 2, p. 613, states, “The earliest known school in the [Amphitheatre] district was conducted at Mountain Hut, some five miles from the Amphitheatre goldfield. This closed in 1861”. Page 686 records, for Mountain Hut, “In 1858, a school was erected which functioned for two years. This building was claimed and removed in 1860 by the Wesleyans . I believe these two schools are really the one.The history continues Jane Piper opened a school in April 1863 . She was not certified, but formerly a teacher under the Denominational Board. The slab building, with a bark roof and compacted clay floor, was built on [unsurveyed forest] Crown Land. The local contribution was 10 pounds. The average attendance was 40, presumably including three McVicar children, Caroline 8, James 6, and Adelaide Mary 5. The fees were 6 pence per week, and the warden made a grant. Aid was applied for, but the Board reported on 27/8/1863 no funds available\rdblquote . Five McVicar children were listed as living 200 yards from the school, Caroline, 8, James, 6, Adelaide, 5, Florence, 3, and Evelyn, 2, and the application for government aid dated 30/11/1863, was signed by, among other committee members, James McVicar, storekeeper. It was a desperately poor community . In the roll dated 26/11/1864 for Common School no.134, Mountain Hut, head teacher James Grant, the five eldest McVicar children, including 3-year-old Evelyn, are shown as very regular attenders. Perhaps their mother was teaching, and solved the problem of what to do with Evelyn by enrolling her in school. There may even be a connection with Evelyn’s later vocation as a schoolteacher! James Flett’s book continues, “…In 1864 McVicar applied for a reward for the discovery of the Glasgow Lead [in 1858], but was unsuccessful.” [on the grounds that the Lead was just an extension of the previously discovered Malakoff Lead].On 17/6/1865, the following schedule was filed in the Insolvency Court. \ldblquote James McVicar, storekeeper, of Mountain Hut, Glenlogie. Causes of Insolvency: Falling off of business as storekeeper, bad debts, and pressure of creditors. Liabilities, 84/9/-, assets 60/8/1, deficiency 24/0/11. The Mountain Hut goldfield was no longer so attractive, and the population was moving on, some without paying their bills. In 1867, a petition to have a funded school provided at Mountain Hut lists Caroline, James, Adelaide, Florence, Evelyn, [where was Archibald?] Eliza and George McVicar as children needing to attend such a school. However, no building was available until 1868, when State School 780 officially opened on 25/2/1868 in a large building, formerly a store. Perhaps this was James McVicar’s Store, now closed due to the 1865 bankruptcy, although Margaret Oulton, in A History of the Shire of Lexton p.225, states that at some stage there were two stores in Mountain Hut, that of F. Clegg and S. Hughes, also a butcher, James Edmonds, and perhaps more. Daily attendance at the new school averaged 46. A site for a new school building was gazetted on 31/12/1868 and a well built, painted and nicely furnished building erected, and average daily attendance rose to 52. How pleased the desperately poor Mountain Hut community must have been. Unfortunately, only eighteen months after the site had been gained, on 7/6/1870, this building and its contents were totally destroyed by fire. What a blow to Mountain Hut. \ldblquote School proceeded in a hut, property of the teacher\rdblquote . Was this the old store pressed into service again, and was Caroline McVicar the teacher? A thorough investigation of the Government file on the Mountain Hut School is required. At a benefit in July 1870 to raise funds to replace the burnt down school, The Avoca Mail reported that Mrs McVicar sang a duet, “I dreamed I dwelt in marble halls” with Mr. Von Oye, and a solo, “By the sad sea waves” [See appendices]. The report continued, “Dancing was kept up until the grey dawn of morning began to appear”, which, given that it was the middle of winter, meant it was quite a night. A new school was completed in 1871, a hardwood building 30ft x 18ft with a shingle roof, completed for 20% less cost than the previous building. Perhaps the authorities could see a decline in the population of Mountain Hut. By 1877, enrolments had declined considerably, and they gave notice that the school was to be removed. In a petition against the removal, Caroline stated she had five children attending, presumably Archibald, who was turning 14 at the end of that year, Eliza [12] George [10] Alexander [8] and Janet [4], the last of the McVicar children born before 1879. Whatever the reason, the school received a reprieve. Copyright Tom Woolman, 2002
