      Wednesday 13th May 1868
      'Walter Brydon, James Peters, Thomas Purves, James Bryce, and Lewis Wiseman, to be trustees of the land acquired by gift for Presbyterian Church purposes at Newham.'

      The Argus-Friday 5 March 1869
      SHANAHAN V. BRYDEN
      Mr. Fellows and Mr. Spensley for the plaintiff ; Mr. Higinbotham and Mr. Wrixon for the defendants.
      This was on action brought tto recover the price of 545 bushels of wheat alleged in one count to be sold to the defendants, and in another to have boen wrongfully converted by them to their own use. The plaintiff is a farmer near Kilmore, and the defendants are millers at Newham. In May last Shanahan deposited with the defendants 545 bushels of wheat, which were to remain there till he chose to sell, and if he did not wish to sell he was to be at liberty to take them away. Wheat was then worth, about 8s. per bushel ; the price afterwards rose a little, and the plaintiff asked ' 8s. Od. for his wheat, which the de- fendants refused to give. In September the price had fallen, and on the 28th of that month, when Shanahan went to make inquiries, he was offered 6s. 9d. per bushel. This he refused to accept, but came next day with his dray to remove the wheat. He was then told that it had been ground some timo before, and that he could not have any. The sum claimed was ?235. Defendants paid ?182 into court, estimating the value of the wheat at 6s. 9d. per bushel. According
      to their statement Shanahan left the wheat with them to grind or soil or dispose of as they chose. The price was not then fixed, but the plaintiff was to have the privilege,
      between that time and Christmas of taking the market price of the day ; of course, if the price rose he would gain the advantage, if it fell the profit would be with the defendants,"
      The jury returned a verdict for plaintiff, damages ?47 13s. 9d,, estimating the price of the wheat at 8s. 6d. per bushel.
      The Court then adjourned till next day.

      Thursday 23rd December 1875-The Argus (Melbourne newspaper)
      The ecclesiastical district of Waranga, of which Rushworth, with a commodious church, is the headquarters, has for more than l8 months boen without the ministra- tion of either clergyman or resident reader, and we observe that with the design of rallying the churchmen of the different parishes in the effort to secure the appointment of one or other from the commencement of the new year, special services are announced to be held at St Paul's Church, Rushworth, on the evening of Christmas Day and on the morning and evening of the day following,
      Speaking of the late Mr. Walter Brydon, who was accidentally killed last Friday night by a fall from his horse, the Kyneton Guardian says :-" He was one of the most useful, hardworking, and disinterested public men in the district, and it will be very difficult to fill his place. He was a member of the old Woodend, Newham, and Rochford Road Board, and when 'the' district was formed into a shire he was one of the councillors, and subsequently was elected pre- sident. He took an active part in the amalgamation of the shire of Newham with the borough of Woodend, and was the first president of the united shire. In matters relating to public education he always took the warmest interest, and was elected the first chairman of the board of advice under the present Education Act. He was a magistrate for the Midland Bailiwick, and attended regularly to his magisterial duties. Mr. Brydon was 46 years of age, having been born at Peebles, Scotland, in 1829
      Wednesday 22nd December 1875. The Argus.
      Mr. Walter Brydon, J.P., of Newham, near Kyneton, met with an accident on December 18, which has terminated fatally. The Observer states that after taking part in the distribution of prizes at the Cobaw State School he started to ride home. He was scarcely in the saddle before his horse threw him and bolted. He mounted another horse to pursue his own, but was soon afterwards found lying on the road, with the animal he had borrowed standing quietly beside him. It is supposed that the horse fell, and in regaining its feet trod upon Mr. Brydon's and fractured his skull. 'The injured
      man died in the course of a few hours.''
