Learned Members of Golden Grove and Nabaclis Village District

Let me point out that in February 1856 Golden Grove Wesleyan Church was serving the community under the Rev. Wm. Hudson – that’s the earliest date I’ve encountered. I have only W. A. Deane, Schoolmaster of Golden Grove Wesleyan School (c.1880s), before Thomas Arthur Archer.
I do not know whether Thomas Arthur Archer’s children were all born in the community, thus only Phyllis Kendall is included because she returned and is resident in the Nabaclis community, for a very long period.

Ivy Nelbertha Loncke and Catherine Cole were music and school teachers - the other children were in the medical field.

Carlton Paton Browne Melbourne – I think came out of the Unity-Lancaster District- prior to being a resident of Nabaclis.

After he had secured his Third Class Teachers’ Certificate of Competency, he sat for the Second Class. One day, when the results in the Official Gazette were published, he looked for his name in vain in the Second Class list. He failed to look up the List above. Quietly moaning his apparent failure, he was aroused by the cheering voice of a comrade, who greeted him “Pat, Congrats.” He said – Why must you m…
