Burgoyne Valley Early Settler Farms, Roads, Lakes, Creeks - from 1874 survey map by Ashdown Green, government surveyor

The Ashdown Green map is the one I refer to as the 1874-1875 survey map (he was the official surveyor, and this is the first official survey)
This copy has names added to it later (not written by Ashdown Green, not present when he was surveying that area in 1874).
(This scan has quite a bit more added to what I remember of mine - e.g. the POST RENEWED stamp

Remember that a different spelling of names to the spelling used today does not necessarily mean a different family, or even imply that was the spelling used by the family at the time.

This is the Burgoyne Valley strip, Range I (1 one) on the southern side of its centre line, and Range II (2 two) on the northern

This copy is a bit smudged; these are the names: (from my notes in a file found, from "Extract from a letter dated 30th August, 1859, from John Copland to Joseph D Pemberton in Victoria" -
List of Settlers for whom Certificate papers are wanted, List of Additional Names,
from L-R:

Maxwell (John Maxwell, on the 1868 list for pre-emption, and has Ranges 1 & II sections 1 and 2 according to Ashdown Green)
Lunney (James Lunney,
Williams
Sparrow
Mitchell
Ackerman
Gyves
Walsh (William Walsh
Duret (sp? Durct?)
Shepherd (Sheppard
The name in 15 was illegible on my copy too - I wrote "North? - short name" in my notes, wish, again, I had the map itself to peer at!

Stowe and Stowe L(ake) (in Ashdown Green's handwriting, for Stowe Lake, later to be erroneously transliterated as Stowel Lake, and thence the Stowell Lake of today's spelling)
Weston and Weston L(ake)

McDonald (in Section 78, not in the Valley strip)

On the right hand edge of the scan, from top to bottom:

Meinersdorf (also spelled Meinerstorf elsewhere)
Spikerman (looking like Spickman in Frank's scan, but his name was Spikerman or Speikerman)
Trage

- at the bottom right, left of Trage, I see a name I can't make out on Franks's scan, and don't have on the post-it-note I found in my files
- at the bottom left, , and is that a name I see, on the far left below the line of dashes that extends across the map? Looks a bit like "Muse"?)
