1826-1842 Index to Bounty Immigrants Arriving in N.S.W. Australia

Bounty immigrants were free immigrants whose passage was paid by the colonial government under the `bounty scheme'. Under this scheme, an incentive or reward (i.e. bounty) was paid to recruiting agents in Britain to find suitable skilled labour and trades people, then ship them out to the new colony.

(Before W. B. Noel, Esq., Chief Commissioner of Insolvent Estates.)


Mr. Macgregor for the official assignee, Mr. Edwards for the insolvent.

The insolvent was further examined. In answer to Mr. Macgregor, he stated that last year he had about 150 acres of land, on part of which stood the Robert Burns Hotel, at Kinlochewe. Bought it three or four years ago of Mr. Thomas Graham, for £3,000; half paid in cash, and the remainder secured by a mortgage on the property for five years. No part of the mortgage was ever paid off, but the interest was paid regularly quarterly until shortly before the insolvency. Sold the equity of redemption, in September last, to Mr. Ruck, for £50. Ruck was at the time a moneylender living in Sandridge, and, so far as insolvent knew, did not follow any other business. Insolvent after the sale to Ruck, let the place for £200 a-year, and subsequently £250, by Ruck's instructions, Ruck having left the place in insolvent's hands to let. The agreement to let the place to the tenant was made out in insolvent's name, and he continued to collect the rents-for Ruck. Insolvent denied that there was any understanding between Ruck and himself to the effect that he was to receive back the rents (collected) after he had gone through the court. The money was paid by Ruck in notes, and insolvent has not given him the money back, but had spent it on his own account. Before this transaction, in- solvent had assigned his furniture to Ruck for an advance. Omitted the furniture from the schedule because he thought the Bill of sale stood good. Had not made any entries in his books of any transaction with Ruck. In answer to Mr. EDWARDS, the insolvent stated that he doubted whether the land at Kinlochewe would fetch £1,500, if it were sold. A vote respecting the insolvent's furniture was taken, but the majority in number of the creditors being one way, and the majority in value being the other, the final disposition of the furni- ture was postponed to the 5th June, to which day the meeting was further adjourned.

Ellen M Treacy

I wonder if you could help me please? My great great grandmother was buried in 1913 in a grave in the Melbourne General Cemetery which was already occupied by the remains of Richard M Tracey (buried 25 April 1874) and Ellen M Treacy (buried 23 April 1874).

I have researched Richard and Ellen on Trove Newspapers and it would seem to indicate that Richard died tragically on 22 April, and that Ellen, most probably his mother, died the day before.

As they were buried on the 23rd and 25th April 1874 in the same grave, then Catherina Dorothea Schultz (written as Dara Schultz in the cemetery records) was put on top of them in 1913, it all seems very strange to me.

Would you have any idea at all of the connection between the Treacys and Catherina Dorothea (usually called Doras - probably problems with her strong German accent)? Do you have any information on Mrs Ellen M Treacy? I note a person by that name who lived in Richmond (perhaps near the Schultz family) in the 1860s - is that the same Ellen M Treacy who was married to R M Tracey? (without getting too hung up about the problem of the spelling of the name)

"On Thursday last," writes the Mount Alexander Mail, " a man named George Tracy met with a very ugly accident in a rather singular manner. He had been staying at an hotel on the Heathcote Road, and on the morning in question was passing in front of the kitchen window, which happened to be open, when one of the servants threw out a saucepan of boiling water at the very moment. The unfortunate man received the contents full in the face, and was terribly scalded both on his features and down his neck. The occurrence was purely accidental, and every means was used to allay the pain ; after remaining two days, however, at the house, and finding he was getting no better, he came to Castlemaine, and was yesterday admitted to the hospital. The left side of his face and one of his eyes is considerably injured, and it will be some time before he recovers the full use of his visual organ.

17 Feb 1933 The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.)


Trouble Due to Misunderstanding:.


In the police court to-day a case was called in which the Right Rev. Monsignor Michael Joseph Treacy, of St Michael's Roman Catholic Church Deniliquin was proceeded against by Patnck William Maher, a for mer mayor of Deniliquin on a charge of having used insulting words inside the church on January 1. A further charge was laid by Maher against Monsignor Treacy of having used abusive language out side the church on the same day. Maher also charged Monsignor Treacy with having unlawfully assaulted him and James Michael Maher, son of Patick William Maher, also laid a charge against Monsig nor Treacy of having used insulting words. A counter-summons was issued by Mon signor Treacy against J. M. Maher that he had allegedly used insulting words on Jan uary 1. On the application of Mr Eugene Gorman. K.C. (instructed by Messrs Sullivan and Kelly), who appeared for Mon signor Treacy, and of Mr. J. Y. Davidson (for Maher) Mr. G. Johnstone, P.M., agreed to strike the cases out.

Mr Gorman said that Mr. Maher and Monsigno Treacy desired the cases to be stuck out ,accompanied by the following statement Mr. Gorman said:-

"The two parties are members of the one congregation. Both are very estimable people, each affectcd with a certain strong will of his own. It is a blend of classic simplicity and Celtic expansiveness. The dispute arose at the church among the congregation concerned. In consequence of the dis turbance of his church services at a time which was regarded as very sacred, Monsignor Treacy wrongly considered that Mr Maher had deliberately left the church at the time. In consequence, certain remonstrances were instituted in the course of which the cause of mutual complaint occurred. Monsignor Treacy wished to say that from the information in his possession he now realised that Mr. Maher had no intention what ever of deliberately disturbing the services. It was a misapprehension on his part, which he was unable to correct at the time. Things which ensued included the stopping of Mr. Maher from entering the church. This was based on something which Monsignor Treacy thought to be a fact, but which he knew now was not. He had been under a misapprehension, and now wished to express his regret to Mr. Maher. Mr Maher wished to say that any expression which he be used under provocation arose through a misunderstanding.

26 May 1938 Riverine Herald (Echuca, Vic.)


Monsignor Treacy

Tho death occurred in Ireland, last Friday, of the Rt. Rev. Monsignor Treacy, of Doniliquln, who was well and favorably known In Echuca and district.

The deceased prelate left Australia a few months ago on a visit to Ireland, in the hope that the trip would improve his health, following a serious accident in Melbourne last year. The late Monsignor studied for the priesthood in Ireland, and 56 years ago he came to Australia and was stationed for practically the whole of that time in the Hay and Denlliquln districts. He was also Vicar-general In Wilcannla Diocese for some time. He also held tho very high honor of being a Prothonotary Apostolic, be stowed upon him by His Holiness The Pope.

The decensed was 84 years of ago, and he will be mourned by a very wide circle of his parishioners and members of the Protestant donomina tions. A man of outstanding ability, he possessed: a genial personality, and although outspoken at times ho al ways took a broad view of life and a sympathetic understanding for those who differed with him.

1938-39 All Hallows Annual

It was granted to Monsignor Michael J. Treacy, P.P., of Deniliquin, Wilcannia-Forbes, to die in Ireland after more than half a century of priestly work in Australia. The privilege of dying in Holy Ireland was not sought by him. He was still active and vigorous and had merely come to visit some relatives. Despite his apparent health and energy, the long journey must have taxed his strength and the end came in May, 1938.

We cull the following from the obituary notice that appeared in the Melbourne Advocate :

“ A native of Roscommon, Monsignor Treacy was eighty-three years of age. Coming to the Australian mission fifty-five years ago, his first labours were in the Goulburn diocese. After four years at Goulburn, he transferred to the diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes, which had just been established, with the late Dr. John Dunne as the first Bishop.

“ Father Treacy, as he then was, was appointed assistant priest at Hay, later becoming pastor. After eleven years at Hay, he went to Deniliquin as parish priest. For forty years he was in charge of the parish—a record seldom equalled. In 1901 he was appointed a Domestic Prelate to the Holy Father with the rank and title of Monsignor— a Papal honour he had held longer than any other living priest in Australia. In 1926 he was appointed a Protonotary Apostolic.

“ A man of very strong personality and force of character, the deceased prelate had a brusquerie and directness of speech and manner which masked his essential kindliness of heart. He had definite opinions, and was not afraid to express them in any company—for he had the courage of these opinions.

“ Many stories are told of Monsignor Treacy, for he was, in many ways, an original, and it is around such striking and picturesque personalities that stories tend to gather.

“ But the best stories, and those by which his memory will most enduringly be kept green, are accounts of his real generosity and genuine, impulsive kindness. Living as he did so long in the West and Far West of New South Wales, he knew many types of people—and all sections of the community respected him. To pastoralists, selectors, bushmen, his was a well-known figure. And not merely a well-known one, for, knowing his true worth, they esteemed him, and not least for the bluff manner that was a mark of his character.

“ A worthy and zealous priest, Monsignor Treacy will be sincerely mourned.”

His Lordship Right Revd. Dr. Fox, Bishop of Wilcannia-Forbes, celebrated a Solemn Pontifical Requiem at the Cathedral in the presence of a large gathering of clergy and laity.

Thy will be done - and it took only 70 years

The estate of a Catholic priest who died in 1938 will finally reach the people to whom it was bequeathed after 70 years of legal wrangling and inaction.

The gap between the death of Michael Joseph Treacy and the distribution of his assets is long even by the standards of a legal system marked by seemingly interminable pauses between court dates.

It has outlasted the executor of the estate, several solicitors, the judge who originally ruled on how it should be divided, Mr Treacy's sister, who was the primary beneficiary, and three of the charitable organisations that were to receive legacies after herdeath.

But Justice William Windeyer made orders in the Supreme Court yesterday that the fund - now worth $213,645 - be distributed to most of Mr Treacy's chosen organisations, saying he wished to bring the matter to a conclusion before he retired.

The 23 beneficiaries include the Pope, Catholic priesthoods and churches in Ireland, Italy and four Australian states. The bequests to an orphanage and a home for young mothers, long since gone, have been dispersed to the charitable funds that succeeded them.

Mr Treacy died with assets amounting to £10,312.

His dying wishes were complicated because he promised more than he could afford and his older sister had left him her estate, confusing which assets were his and which he held in trust for his sister.

A judicial enquiry settled that matter in 1948, but further questions over how the funds should be distributed arose, leading to a judge ordering that the disparate claimants be identified and consulted.

The Deniliquin solicitor who had handled the matter until that point "either gave up practising or gave up trying to bring the matter to any conclusion" when faced with this challenge, Justice Windeyer said in yesterday's judgment, and the will lay dormant for 15 years.

There was another burst of activity in 1970 when a new solicitor suggested that since that judge had retired, a new equity judge might make some more practical orders, but the matter petered out again in 1971.

"It might well have been a matter which … was handed to any new solicitor happening to arrive in that office as a new recruit who was told to do something to bring it to a head and failed to do that before he or she left that employment," Justice Windeyer said.

New proceedings were not commenced until last year.

Context and Mission of Catholic Schools 150 years after Edward Tracey

...Around the time the widow Girard was acquiring the Lismore station, Fr Timothy McCarthy was serving as first parish priest of the district and Mr Edward Tracey was establishing the first Catholic school on the North Coast. In 1860, on the corner of Skinner and Ryan Streets here in Grafton, he opened his little school in a weatherboard church with a few children and himself as the teacher...When Edward Tracey established his school it was not unusual for a sole operator, with no formal qualifications, little or no accountability and resources no better than a roof and a blackboard, to set up a shingle as a school...

Tracey/Treacy family in Cooma

I am researching a new line of the Tracey (Treacy) family who were in Cooma between 1860-1890 and possibly continued to live there after this date. My link is to Thomas Treacy who married Margaret Scully in 1860 in Cooma. There were 12 children who I have listed below. There is also a James Treacy (married to Julia) and a Bridget Treacy who may be related to Thomas.

The children are generally listed as "Tracey" from the mid 1860's onwards.

Does anyone have any links to this family, or suggestions where I can find more information on pioneer families in Cooma?

Crown Hotel - Lyons Street

The first business on this site was a Bakery commenced by Joseph Day in 1857. His plans for a brewery seem to have been abandoned in favour of an hotel (or licensed store) - ’The Ship Inn’. Named ‘Crown’, it seems, by the new owner, John Treacy (previously the mounted police constable) after his purchase in December 1866.



The 27 April 1869 edition of the Mount Alexander Mail reported on the sale of the Ship Inn: "The Ship Inn, Newstead, has changed hands. The present proprietor, Mr. Treacy, is making extensive improvements on the old Ship; he has the bar beautifully fitted up, and open , but it will take some three months yet to finish the place so as to have it in shipping phrase A1 at Lloyds." Treacy, who had retired from the police at Newstead, appears to have changed the name immediately to the Crown Hotel as in the same month the newspaper carries an announcement of the birth of his son at the Crown Hotel. In June 1873 it was reported that " Some time ago Mr. Treacy, of the Crown hotel, celebrated the opening of additions to his premises by a Farmers' Ball, which was well attended , no less than 300 being present. These events however, only occur at long intervals, as there is no permanent accommodation for the public, where they can meet for recreation...or even hold a public meeting...Mr Treacy, with his usual enterprising spirit, is even now erecting a large and commodious building suitable for such requirements, and in about a month or six weeks it will be inaugurated in the orthodox manner - another Farmers' Ball." In 1887 he applied for a victuallers license for the Crown Hotel which is described as having 14 rooms exclusive of those required by the family. In 1889 the newspaper reported that Mr. John Treacy, formerly of the Crown Hotel was now at a North Melbourne Hotel. It would appear that Mr. Ellis Hook took over the hotel and in 1890 his retirement is reported and that he had sold to Mr. Burns. He ran the hotel until 1896 when the license was transferred to Mary Treacy, whose parents had the hotel for years. In 1901 she sold the hotel to Mr. T. O'Brien of Fosterville, near Bendigo. When Mr. O'Brien sold to Mr. Lewis in 1903 The Mount Alexander Mail gave a history of the hotel:

Newstead Newstead and District Historical Society: newsletter May 2004:

Con Treacy was a stockbroker based in Newstead and promoter of the mine in 1900. The outbreak of the Boer War at that time saw Con enlist to serve and newspaper articles reveal how patriotic the people were and how popular a figure Con was. He returned the next year safely although his horse had been killed. However he then returned to South Africa as he had arranged to get a position with the diamond mines in the Kimberley.

The Murrumbidgee Brewery


This was situated on one acre of ground on the Esplanade in Newtown, on the south side of the Woliundry Lagoon and was formerly the site occupied by Crawford and Connelly as coaching stables (now the site of The Old Wagga Brewery). A "capacious" wooden building with reputedly the largest cellar in town, it had been built by Martin Treacy at a cost of three thousand pounds.


Martin Treacy, born In County Roscommon, Ireland in 1817, was a builder by trade. After emigrating to Melbourne on the ship Westminster in 1839, he did commence business as a builder and contractor but soon decided the hotel trade was more lucrative. After making a snail fortune from his hotel at Geelong he took the family on a trip for four years. In 1865 he and his brother, John, turned to brewing and soon won many awards, a Gold Medal for their bulk ale at the London Annual Intercolonial Exhibition of all Fine Arts, Industries and Inventions; a bronze medal at the International Centennial Exhibition at Philadelphia for ale and stout in glass in 1876, and a silver medal at the Geelong Industrial Exhibition for light draught ale in 1879/80

He and his sons, Martin and John, started the Murrumbidgee Brewery in 1881. Before long it was servicing the Riverina area; it had a large staff and like Eaton and Co did its own carting. Unlike Batons though it used English malt for its brewing; it obtained its sugars.. from Mauritius and its hops from England, Victoria, Tasmania and New Zealand. Its brewing method was similar to that used by the Batons -

1.       On the first floor the malt was ground by passing it through A mill like a large coffee mill. The crushed malt was next mashed in a large tun filled with boiling water for twelve hours. The whole was: then thoroughly agitated until every particle of the malt was brought into contact with the water. After it is sufficiently soaked, the water called "goods", which by then was very sweet, was drawn off into a large vessel called the "underback" from which it was pumped into a huge copper on the second floor.

2.       Here the hops were added and the mixture boiled by steam until the hops yielded their aromatic and bitter principles and until the liquor had been concentrated to the extent required by the brewer. It was then run into the "cooler" or refrigerator consisting of a framework or tray of forty copper tubes, each one having above it a ridge of metal with a serrated edge, similar to an ordinary saw. Cold water was continually running through these pipes, and as the hot "worts" as they were termed, dropped upon the tubes they gradually became cool The water used in cooling the copper pipes was then discharged into a tank on the ground floor where it was used for cleansing the casks etc. The cooling room was fitted with louvre blinds so arranged that the draught could be controlled according to the state of the weather. From the refrigerator the liquid ran into the fermenting vat where it was mixed with the yeast. The whole contents of the tun began to pass into a state of commotion, much gas was evolved, and this, tending to escape, caused a frothing on the surface called the "rocks" from the irregular. mountainous appearance of the masses of froth piled on each other.

3.       When fermented it was placed in casks like hogsheads called "rounds" where the remaining traces of fermentation proceeded and the beer became fined down and clear, when it was at once placed in the casks in which it was sent into market.

Like at Eatons a large cooperage was attached. There was also a bottling rack nearby and a double action force pump by which water was either drawn from the well which was thirty feet deep and five feet wide or, for cleaning purposes, from the Woflundry Lagoon, on the other side of the Esplanade.

On January 28, 1896 the Murrumbidgee Brewery was completely destroyed by fire. Martin Treacy sen had died less than two weeks before the fire and had left his share of the business to his daughter, Kathleen had after the death of his wife in 1891. Martin's son, John had died in 1881 and it was strongly suspected that Martin junior, who had been seen leaving the premises just before the fire, had burnt it down to obtain the insurance of over two thousand pounds. However the jury at the Inquest was unable to reach a decision and the depositions were forwarded to the Crown Law Department.


Martin Treacy. Born in county Rosscommon, Ireland, in 1817. Served apprenticeship to building trade in Dublin. Emigrated in 1839 on Westminster, landing in Melbourne, Victoria. Commenced business as a builder and contractor. Married Catherine Dowling. Moved to Geelong and built and ran a hotel; became wealthy; and took family on a trip to Europe for four years. Returned to Geelong in 1861 and four years later started business as a brewer, winning many prizes. Moved to Wagga Wagga in 1881 with sons, John and Martin, and started the Murrumbidgee Brewery in the Esplanade. Lived in Best Street, Wagga Wagga. Died in January 1896; buried at Geelong (WWA May 16, 1893; and Jan 18, 1896; Morris NWWDHS No.247 June/July 1987; and Morris The Brewing Industry in Wagga).

Iona Presentation College is a prestigious independent, day and boarding school for girls, located in Mosman Park, an affluent suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Treacey House is named after Mother Angela Treacey, one of the founding Sisters.

Mary Brigid Treacey (Mother Angela) (1845-1936)


In March 1874, in response to an urgent appeal from Bishop Lanigan of Goulburn for religious communities of women for his diocese, five Presentation Sisters under the leadership of Mother John Byrne, left Kildare, Ireland, for the mission at Wagga Wagga, New South Wales. Mt. Erin Presentation Convent Wagga Wagga, was officially opened in 1876. On 15 August 1877 the first Australian born postulant entered. She was Mary Brigid Treacey (Mother Angela), a highly educated, musically talented woman who was then 32 years of age. She was destined to become the foundress of two independent communities - Hay in 1883 and Southern Cross in 1900 - and eventually the foundress of the Perth Congregation of Presentation Sisters.

In 1900, Mother Angela Treacy, an Australian, led five Presentation Sisters from Hay in New South Wales to the goldfields at Southern Cross at the request of Bishop Matthew Gibney who was very short of teachers for his schools since government aid had ceased in 1895. The sisters arrived in Albany onboard RMS Orizba before setting out on the two-day train trip to Southern Cross where it seemed that the priest had forgotten they were coming.

As the annalist wrote: “Our hearts were sad indeed when we saw the fields of our labours.” However, by the end of 1900, 100 children were enrolled in the school and a good beginning had been made. A postulant joined them there and they remained until 1904 with some moving to the mining town of Collie in 1902. John (1846-1886) Kathleen (1848-1908) Martin (1851-1935)

Mr. M. Treacy evidently deems that Gun bower is Likely to prosper and has been making a number of improvements which help to make a country life more endurable and among .which will be found some conveniences for which visitors at the forthcoming race meeting will.bo very grateful. Mr. Treacy has been enlarging' his house by the addition of several rooms all substantially brick built and with plastered walls in pleasing contradistinction .to slab or weatherboard. and hessian and . which. means an immunity from the possibility of fire which will be reassuring, Not the least useful of the addition is a bathroom from which all the luxuries of a showerbath will be obtainable To secure this; result in a lesser degree and to enter upon irrigation of an orchard and kitchen garden in a larger way, Mr. Treacy has had erected at an altitude of some twenty feet upon staging a' corrugated: galvanised iron tank capable of holding 8000 gallons of water. This is fed from the Gunbower Creek by means of pipes, the agent for raising the water to the tank being an althouse windmill which easily keeps the tank full and supplies all wants. Pipes from this tank reach all over, the orchard and garden and are also carry to the houses and horse trough ;so that the laborious work of carting and carrying water about is dispensed with. The orchard and garden under the care of a son of the celestial land looks in capital order. A peach tree was bearing splendidly for its first season and a patch of onions had given a great yield. . Cabbages, cauliflowers, vegetable-marrows and other vegetables are. grown and Mr Treacy customers when getting their joint from his butcher. on his round in the cart can at the same time select vegetables as he pleases a privilege which is not ordained to every country township and farming village. The barn in, which, the usual dance is held each year is being enlarged to 40x20 feet so that those who attend at the races and who. stay for the dancing will be gratified, with more space and a new floor to dance upon. In the blacksmith; slop which Mr. Treacy has attached to his business he has very extensive stock and excellent appliances tor coping with work that may be ordered of him or repairs that may want executing. He has a very large quantity, of bar iron, rod iron, sheet iron of all sizes and thickness and quite a stock of bolts, nuts and screws etc., necessary for his work. A patent .drilling machine which cuts a hole through an inch of .iron with as much ease as if it were soft wood, is a great convenience. Indeed the appliances at hand enable Mr. Treacy to do a great amount of work that farming communities always require and whether it is new plough shares, mould boards harrows, or repairs to' harvesting. machines the appliances and the skill are both there to execute them. Mr. Treacy finds enough work in the ^district to keep four hands constantly employed4 and often turns; out work and repairs of a very superior kind. Generally he is building up about himself a small township and has apparently abundant faith m the future prosperity find progress of the Gunbower district.

Obituary - MR. MATHEW TREACY 1848-1910
Another well-known pioneer of this district, Mr. Mathew Treacy, died on Saturday at his home at Gunbower. Mr. Treacy had been ill for some months, and quite lately had been in Melbourne under medical treatment, but was apparently in much improved health. On Friday he was moving about and talking cheerily with his family, and speaking on the telephone with a gentleman in Echuca, and expressed his intention of coming in to to the town on Saturday to attend the sales. Early in the morning he appeared to be fairly well, and drank a cup of tea which his wife brought in to him at about 7 o'clock. When she went in about an hour later to continue preparations for his trip to Echuca it was found that he had suddenly expired, apparently without pain, heart failure being the cause of death. The late Mr. Treacy was born in Ireland, and at the age of four years came with his parents to Victoria and settled at Colac. That would be 58 years ago, the deceased gentleman being
62 years of age.

In 1876 he first came to this part of the country, settling on land at the Terricks. Not many years later he moved to Gunbower, and commenced business there as an hotel and store keeper, and by his ability and enterprise built up the large commercial interest which he held in that township. Mr. Treacy was of a sterling, genial disposition, which endeared him to the people of the district, and made for him hosts of good friends. He was ever ready to assist in a practical way anything that was mooted for the benefit of his district, and in most instances took the initiative in these matters himself. His was a personality, which will be greatly missed in the Gunbower district, where the name of Mathew Treacy had imprinted itself on the hearts of all sections of' that community. A striking evidence of the popularity of the deceased gentle-man was indicated at his funeral, where representative men; from all parts of the surrounding district were to be seen.

The charitable side of the late Mr.Treacy's character was evidenced through-out his life. He was ever a leading spirit in all movements for the benefit of the Echuca hospital, and the Hospital Sundays held at Gunbower will always be remembered, by those taking part in them, while the hospitality extended by Mr. Treacy to members of the Echuca band, who frequently gave their services on those occasions, is cherished as a pleasant memory. On account of his special services Mr. Treacy was made a life governor of the hospital. For several years the late Mr, Treacy represented the north-east riding in the Kerang Shire Council, but relinquished his connection with this body when the needs of his business demanded closer personal attention. The multitudinous businesses carried on by Mr. Treacy at Gunbower gained for that township the affectionate name of Treacy Town.

He leaves a widow, three sons - Messrs. Mathew, John and James Treacy - and two daughters -the Misses May and Rubie Treacy, the latter being still a pupil at the local Brigidine Convent. The funeral took place at the Echuca cemetery yesterday afternoon, and was very largely attended by friends of the deceased from far and near. The funeral cortege left Gunbower shortly after 9 o'clock, a number of friends marching at the head for some distance, and about 60 vehicles following all the way to the Echuca cemetery. Numbers of Echuca residents joined in the procession on the way. Quite a number of deceased's old friends from Box Creek locality formed part of the funeral procession as far as Torrumbarry, whence they had to return home to take part in a Hospital Sunday, gathering. Enroute the remains were removed into the Torrumbarry church, where a solemn requiem mass was held, the Rev. Prior Laffan officiating there and at the grave. The pall-bearers were Messrs. H.M'Kenzie, M.L.A., A. W. H. White, W. Tainsh, H. Wells, James 'M'Mahon, and James Ryan. The numerous employees of Mr. Treacy at Gunbower showed their special respect by supplying a beautiful immortelle wreath.

24 Apr 1907 Bendigo Advertiser (Vic)


A disastrous fire occurred at 2 o'clock this morning at Gunbower, bv which Mr. Matthew Treacy's hotel and store, post office and offices of the National Bank and Co-operative Butter Factory Company were burned to the ground.

The occupants of the hotel were awakened by a crackling noise, apparently in the store, and almost immediately the rooms of the licensed premises were ablaze. Mr. Treacy and his household together with some visitors and employees, had barely time to escape from the burning building, and in their hurried exit only managed to se- cure a few articles of clothing. The ladies lost the whole of their jewellery. The safe, containing money and other valu- ables, was got out with difficulty. It was in a room off the bar, and two men who essayed the task of removing it were al- most suffocated.

In the grocery shop, in which the fire is believed to have started, 3000 cartridges were storcd, and the noise caused by their discharge was like a military fusillade. The office of the National Bank is only open about once a week, and fortunately the day on which the fire occurred was not one of its business days. A good deal of inconvenience will be occasioned the Butter Factory Co., which has lost all its papers. A start had only the previous day been made with the erection of the factory. A strong wind was blowing from the north-west at the time of the outbreak, but later it changed to north-east. Had it not been for this the butcher's and baker's shops adjoining, together, with the stables at the rear of the burning buildings, would have been demolished. Altogether five business premises and four bedrooms were destroyed.

It is not known how the fire originated. The store was locked up at 6 o'clock last evening, and was not again re-opencd. No wax matches were kept on the premises. The buildings are believed to have been in- surcd for £700 in the Royal and Norwich, offices, but this amount will not nearly cover the loss. It is not known if the con- tents were insured. Mr. Treacy will be a heavy loser by the fire. The property was one of the landmarks of Gunbower.

Margaret Mary Treacy

After a short illness. Mrs Margaret Mary Treacy passed peacefully away at 1.30 a.m. on Monday, at the home of her daughter, Mrs T. L. Grange. The deceased lady was a well-known and respected lady was a well-known the older generation, who were more in contact with her during her long business career-covering close upon 60 years of residence.

Born at Yangera, via Koroit, she was among the first settlers who came to Torrumbarry. After her marriage at Echuca, to Matthew Treacy, who predeceased her about 33 years ago, she returned for a | time to the Koroit district before taking up her abode at Gunbower. Together with her husband she managed the hotel, store, butchery and baker's shop until these were gradually taken over by other proprietors. Her practice of inviting all roadmen to dinner each Christmas reflected her generosity and kindly nature. In addition clergymen of all denominations were accommodated and provisioned free of charge. Commercial travellers always made the hotel their headquarters during those early years, such was the consideration and attention they received at her capable hands. After retiring from business she enjoyed good health until about 13 years ago, since when she bore her failing health cheerfully and continued to take interest in the township's pro gress.

The funeral took place yesterday afternoon at Echuca, where a large number of relatives and old friends attended at the graveside to pay their last tribute of respect. There were many floral offerings on the casket, which was borne to the grave by Messrs M. O'Brien, Dave Peevers, Thos. Perkins and J. E. Treacy. The pall-bearers- were Messrs T. L. Grange, Leo. Diviny, John Dunlea, John Gleeson, Thos. Poxon, Thos. Burke. Father Dunn of Eaglehawk, an old friend of the family, officiated at the graveside, assisted by Rev. Prior Maddock of Echuca. The funeral arrangements were carried out by J. W. Vevers.


3 Aug 1951 Riverine Herald (Echuca, Vic)



One of Gunbower's best known and most respected residents, Mr John James Treacy, died at Echuca District Hospital on Wed nesday at the age of 72 years. A member of one of the district's most well known pioneer ing families, Mr Treacy was born at Pine Grove but moved to Gunbower with his parents at an early age.

Educated at Echuca, the late Mr Treacy showed early ability as a footballer while at school, and after leaving school he played with Gunbower for some years, captaining the premier ship side in 1906.

For some time he was post, master, and an agent for Shack- ell White and Co, rendering ex- cellent service to all sections of the community in both these capacities, until he selected land on the Gunbower Island. Keenly interested in the wel- fare of the community, he was one of the prime movers in the establishment of the Gunbower and District Cooperative Butter Factory, and was appointed the first secretary of the factory, holding this position until the factory was working satisfactorily and the first manager secretary was employed.

The late Mr Treacy's father was mainly responsible for having land on the Fox Island declared a recreation reserve for a race course in 1897. Prior to that, races were conducted on station property in the Taylor's Creek area.

Mr Treacy was appointed secretary of the trustees prior to the first meeting held on the new course in July of 1898 and established a record for the office, holding it until his death, a period of 53 years. In addition to holding the secretarial position for the trustees, Mr Treacy, who was keenly interested in racing, was secretary of the Gunbower Race Club for a period of 15 years, holding several other executive positions with the same organisation.

The esteem in which the late Mr Treacy was held was summed up by one of the district's residents who said, "Mr Treacy was a man who gave a great deal of his time to helping others and helping the progess of the district. His efforts were such that he leaves behind him a record that will make the young men of today look to their laurels if they are to emulate him".

Mr Treacy is survived by his wife, six sons, Matt, Murray, Kevin, Alton, Jack, and Barney and three daughters, Joyce, Margaret (Mrs O'Meara) and Joan (Mrs. Pranse). His funeral will take place today after Requiem Mass commencing at 10 a.m, at St. Mary's Church, Echuca.

22 Dec 1892 Barrier Miner (Broken Hill, NSW)

Mr. Hugh Treacy writes:-"Kindly allow me to offer an explanation with regard to the public Concert announced to be held in Treacy's Hall last night, under the auspices of the Broken Hill branch of the Australian Socialist League. On Monday last arrangements were made with an official of the society to hold a concert in the hall on December 21. Yesterday, however, the arranging of the hall entirely escaped my memory, with the result that at the hour announced for opening, the seats, &c., were not arranged. This necessitated an adjournment of the concert till this evening. This was all the more disappointing, seeing that among the crowd assembled' were a number of ladies.: In justice to the Socialist League, and to prevent any discredit attaching to that body owing to my act of forgetfulness, I think this explanation due."

Yesterday an accident happened to a miner named Philip Tracey, employed in Block 11 of the Proprietary mine, which resulted fatally, early this morning.

Tracey was working on tie 800ft. level of the mine stoping with his brother, Luke Tracey, when a fall of many tons of ore took place, and he was entrapped in it. Considerable time elapsed before the unfortunate man could be extricated from his dreadful position, and when he was got out his legs were found to be frightfully crushed.

Dr. Hains attended the case, and, at his orders, Tracey was removed to the Hospital, whore it was found necessary to amputate his left leg below the knee. The poor fellow lingered until this morning, when he gradually sank and died.

While being brought to the surface of the mine Tracey was delirious. Deceased was only 22 years of age, and was u member of the A.M.A.

An inquest will be. held at half-past 2 o'clock this afternoon.
