  General Notes:

PHOTO (see albums 019_004B.tif) - Although I am not certain, there is evidence that this photo is of William Millar Hale. It was found in the album of his cousin Annie Bertha Hale and the back has her name and the year 1896, when both would have been about 23. There are only two other photos in her album similarly signed with her name and dated. Annie had only two other male Hale cousins, the sons of Samuel Joel Hale, Arthur and Thomas. I have positively identified one of these photos as Thomas (019.006B.tif) and have strong indications that the other is Arthur (019.002B.tif). (Note: I have been unable to trace the photographer Vine of 92-94 Elizabeth Street as printed at the bottom of this photograph, but Davies and Stanbury list a John Vine of Beechworth and a Francis Vine of Sandy Bay, Tasmania, both 1899-1900).


CUMBRAE, 33 Point Nepean Road (Nepean Highway), Elsternwick. - This was on the north side of Nepean Highway just east of Rusden Street and the property may have backed onto Horne Street. It seems originally to have been the home of William's grandfather William Millar and is mentioned as the place of his parents' 1863 marriage. It appears on the 1905 MMBW plan as the 3rd house from Rusden Street and one of 7 houses before McMillan Street. As at March 2010 only the second house, "Roseneath" on the MMBW plan, is still standing. Although needing a bit more research it seems possible that an earlier larger "Cumbrae" house and property may have been subdivided and this row of houses built in the late in the 1800s. It is also worth noting that William's other grandfather Thomas Hale lived in until about 1860 a short distance back down Brighton Road near the present Maryville Street maybe explaing the Hale / Millar connection.
