About this blog

This blog is about the history of the Koo-Wee-Rup Swamp and neighbouring areas, such as Pakenham, Cranbourne and Garfield, and any other historical subjects I feel like writing about. It's my own original research and writing and if you live in the area you may have read some of the stories before in the Koo-Wee-Rup Swamp Historical Society newsletter or the Koo-Wee-Rup township newsletter, The Blackfish, or the Garfield township newsletter, The Spectator.

100 years ago this week - Wife wanted

This was in a couple of newspapers, 100 years ago this week in October 1913, the Adelaide Mail, Bendigo Advertiser and the Horsham Times.  I am not sure if the story is true, or if the love lorn cheesemaker found himself a tall, fair lump of  a Protestant, but either way, it's  a great story!
