Photo 1: Back row left to right we see Alf Briant, Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Robinson, Clara Jane Briant with Tuck Robinson on the far right. The young men sitting in front possibly Holt/Robinsons and Gunter lads.

We know this was taken by Dan Bowman in 1916 and all are named as can be seen a few posts down.

Dan Bowman took this group photo of the Holt/Robinson’s and others at a picnic in Lady Barron 1916. Dan possibly took the photo of the people standing in front of the hut.

Photo 2: John Holt front, to his right is Mrs Linda Gunter with Mr Thomas Gunter located directly behind. Dick, George and Horace behind John and in front is Ada Cumming with Louie Holt (white dress) the girl behind her without hat is Tot (Elizabeth Bowman) Dan’s sister, behind Tot is Charlie Holt, Walter Holt, and Dolly Holt (white dress and hat). Robert ‘Bob’ Smith in the middle, Tasman Holt along with Charlie Dyson out on the right. Tuck Holt holding the billy with Ronnie (4) on his lap, wife Lizzie with Eric (6). All those identified here as Holt’s are also Robinson’s!!

Linda Gunter and ‘Lizzie’ Elizabeth Robinson were sisters

  1. to Peter and Joy Robinson.
    my name is David John Holt , my grandfather was Harold John Holt….. and my Dad , Walter Holt .
    i visited Flinders approx 15 yrs ago……i am holding a small piece of paper you gave me and it says ”always a Robinson” and also ”knows the history”…..your writing…..paper almost transparent now!

    i have just been reading a book called TRUGANINI Journey through the Apocalypse , it talks of a Aboriginal warrior called Mannalargenna and also a woman Woreternaterlargner , is this some strange coincidence as when i track the family tree it shows a man called Mannerlarenner Palawa whom ”passed” same date as the warrior mentioned in the ”Book” with sibling Woretenattelargenne and Emerenna (Bet Smith) , names can be misspelled and also i have notice some Original People can be called different names ….as can be Dave David etc.
    …….also names can be common among different races.
    Peter what is your knowledge on this.
    regards
    David Holt.
    Deepest apologies to all if you are not still with us.
