A stranger in the town

The story of a Castlemaine family told in maps, images and more

My great, great, grandfather, Augustus Courts Yandell, arrived at the Mount Alexander goldfields (later named Castlemaine) in 1851 and his descendants have lived in Castlemaine ever since. This digital story highlights aspects of A.C. Yandell’s life and that of his daughter Lilly, son-in-law Robert Bailie, and grandson Dave Bailie, and includes recollections from his great grandson, David, my father. Interwoven in the story is information about how to research similar stories and links to historical information.
