Arthur Peter Keenan

Obituary:
A member of the well known Keenan family, Mr Arthur Keenan died in Melbourne last Saturday at the age of 76 years. Connected with the development of Lilydale for over 50 years, this family came from Mitcham on the opening of the Lilydale railway. As a young many Arthur was a prominent local footballer and runner. His prowess on the football field may be gauged by the fact that a short time back a football medallion was sent to the “Sun-Pictoria” as wanting an owner. It turned out to be a medal presented to the late Mr Kennan some time in the ‘nineties by Cr James Wallace.

In the days when sport called for every member of the community to do his bit, the Keenan family were renowned for step dancing, championship wood cutting, achievement on the football field in most pastimes of the old century when “Shank’s” pony and a stout gig and pony were in evidence, long since superseded by the motor car. At the regular old-time dances, too, they carved a niche form themselves by discoursing pleasant melodies per medium of the concertina. The late Mr Keenan leaves a daughter, Mrs W. McCumber of Swansea Rd to whom sympathy is extended. [Lilydale Express 02-02-1940]

Biography:
Born in Ireland in 1835, John Kerr and his friend Robert Black arrived in Victoria in 1857. Both had been medical students but set out in search of gold, which took them to Queensland and New South Wales where they were most successful.
They returned to Lilydale where they farmed together, first leasing land later purchasing 500 acres north of Lilydale. After a 10-year business relationship they decided to go their separate ways.
In 1870 John married Elizabeth Macintyre (daughter of Thomas Macintyre) and they had 10 children. John purchased 1,500 acres of semi swamp land on the river flats near Yarra Glen, which he drained and successfully grew good pasture to feed his large dairy herd. By 1880 he had milking sheds covering about a quarter of an acre and a staff of 17 to help send 200 gallons of milk to Melbourne daily.
The property was a showpiece in the district. The installation of an electric plant in 1912 made the property one of the most up-to-date at the time. Outside of farming John was active in the community. He was a member of the Upper Yarra District Road Board joining in 1871; a founding member of the Lilydale Presbyterian Church; he founded the Lilydale Tent of Rechabites in 1869. John died in December 1927 aged 92 years. [A Tour of Lilydale Cemetery Book 3 pg13]
Memorial Address:
A memorial address was given for John Kerr by Rev Robertson at the Lilydale Presbyterian Church. John Kerr...was the oldest pioneer of the district and also the oldest elder of the church. Mr Kerr was at one time a member of the Lillydale Shire Council, and in his younger days took a keen interest in the welfare of the district...He was a man of great force of character and natural ability. But he was also something better, for he was a man of high moral principle and unswerving rectitude. In the early days, when the cause was not so popular as it is today, he was one of the leaders in the temperance movement and the prime mover in the foundation of the local Rechabite Lodge. Above all, he was a loyal member of the church and a staunch supporter of the cause. We think of him to-day as the last of the pioneers of the district and one who by his patience and industry and sturdy independence ‘made good’ in the highest sense. [Lilydale Express 23-12-1927]

Obituary:

On Friday, May 8, 1914 Cr Kings sat on the bench at the Lilydale Court before going to Melbourne. As the Lilydale Express recorded: “He attended a meeting of veterinary surgeons in the evening, and whilst in conversation with Mr Kendall, and in the act of lighting a cigar he leaned back and expired. “In controversial matters he was very tenacious and stubborn, and the man who assumed he could be silenced in an argument, invariably found that he had “struck a snag.” However of a seemingly hard nature there was a tender chord and he did a great deal of good without displaying any ostentation. Mr Kings was a hard worker, and can be truly said that he died in harness.” He left a wife and grown-up family of five sons and one daughter. [Lilydale Express 15-05-1914]

Obituary:
...we record the death of Mr John Kitchingham, which took place at his residence, Surrey Hills, on Wednesday, 29th ult. The deceased gentleman has been well known in the Lilydale district, having visited it at intervals for the past 25 years. About 12 years ago he became the licensee of the Olinda Hotel, Lilydale, which business he conducted until the later Mr D. Baker secured the lease. Mr Kitchingham was the owner of the new Crown Hotel, and also of the magnificent block of land situated at the corner of Clark and Main streets, Lilydale. He made many friends in the Lilydale district by his kind and genial manner, and his demise is deeply regretted...There was only a very small attendance of local residents at the funeral, but this was caused through the short notice of the funeral being given.
