Archive File - DUMARESQ Family

From the Collection of Kew Historical Society Inc Kew Court House 188 High Street Kew Victoria

Description
Archive file containing information on the Dumaresq family of Kew who were early settlers in Kew and in Tasmania. In Kew, the Dumaresqs built their house St Helliers (1888-), about which Margaret Dumaresq a member of the Society wrote a profile in 1959. In the file there are a number of newspaper articles/clippings including one noting the death of Miss Dumaresq who had been a Vice-President. In 1971, Miss Dumaresq presented a long talk on her family’s history, which was recorded and is now transcribed. Her discussion of her family’s past dates back to the Battle of Waterloo. What appear to be her handwritten notes are kept in the file. The file contains an album of 16 postcards of places and people at Melbourne University donated by FKM Dumaresq.
