    Notes 
    • Birth details recorded, District Willunga reference book 6 page 255.
      George received his schooling at Grace Plains. At first, he worked at home and on the farm at Kybunga, then as a young man and seeking to make his own way in life, he spent a short time mining at Broken Hill. However, a dose of lead dust forced him out of this life and back to the farm. After marriage he farmed at Owen for five years then moved to Brookton, Western Australia in the year 1902. Horses and some implements were shipped to Fremantle.
      Crown land was taken up an as it was heavily timbered, much hard work had to be done; there were hardships too. The property was called "Boyagin Valley" after a huge rock in the valley named after an aborigine who lived in the area. An iron shed-like structure was erected, divided into two rooms. It was a few years before a proper home could be built. George mad mud bricks and used timber from the property in the construction of the house which still stands.
      George was interested in the district, becoming a J.P. and Chairman of the Roads Board (District Council). Their children were educated at South Dale School, 4.5 miles away. They walked until a horse and spring cart was bought for their use.
      Howard, the eldest son can remember his father sowing wheat by hand from a container suspended from the shoulders. The property was sold in 1917 for 25 shillings per acre. ($2.50). The family returned to South Australia. After a short period living in Adelaide and Working at various jobs, they obtained a farm at Hoyleton and resided there for six years. In 1924 they moved to Pinnaroo where land was purchased for 6 pound per acre ($12). His sons continued to farm the land when George and Margaret moved to Adelaide. At first the couple lived at Prospect and later at Ovingham. George worked at the munitions factory during WW II and later at Simpsons - White goods manufacturers. Their retirement was spent in Ovingham.

    • In 1847, there were seven Wesleyan Churches in South Aus. and Mt. Barker was one of them.

      When the mill was built, it was used as a place of worship and Sunday School was also held in it. Later, a slab church was built in Cameron Street, of red gum posts with an earthen floor and bags for windows. The first stone church, which is now the Lecture Hall was opened in 1851. The Rev. J. Hall preached morning and evening, the collection for the day amounting to 44-2-6 (a record even for today). The Rev. J. Dann, D.D., who was 21 years of age, walked from Adelaide to Mt. Barker to take charge of this church. The parsonage was built in 1857.

      The present fine structure, the Dunn Memorial Church built in 1881, donated to the Mt. Barker Methodists by the late John Dunn, now stands alongside the old church.
