The executor of Samuel, Jacobson’s Edward Rich a money broker of Fitzroy and Patrick Woulfe sold Lot 3 to Edward Poyner on March 23, 1887 for £100.
Edward Moore Poyner arrived in Melbourne from England in 1857 and came to Lilydale the following year where he worked for Paul de Castella for four years. He spent another five years with George Harker and soon purchased some 300 acres. He was engaged in carrying goods to the various diggings including Marysville and Woods Point. About 1875 he started his bakery business which he continued to operate until he retired in 1886. He married in 18 58 and had a family of five sons and two daughters. He made his home at The Oaks east of Lilydale township.
(Victoria and its Metropolis pg 413).
This was the last transaction on the lot until Reginald Davies the younger claimed it by adverse possession in 1990.
Poyner and his estate paid rates on the property until 1980 although the Davies family, owners of adjoining property believed it was part of their property and fenced it with their land. Percival Peak purchased the adjoining lots 1 and 2 Block 6 in 1947 and his brother-in-law Reginald Davies built a home in 1948.
Today Reginald Davies the younger still owns the property.
