CHRISTENING: AtBermondsey, St Johns, London on Jun. 2nd 1836. SHIP:TheBarque"Africaine" which arrived in Kangaroo Island on 2Nov1836. BIOGRAPHY: Michael went to the Bendigo Goldfieldsin 1851 with his brother Charles. Taylor family historyrecords that gold found was hidden in the axle of theirwagon and thusthwarted ahold-up on theirway back toAdelaide. From there the brothers returned to KangarooIsland and built three free standing cottages. "Faith","Hope" &"Charity". While thwarting robbers may have been amotive the story is also probably asanitising ofhistory.The following Victorian Attorney General's correspondencemay explain my view. "Unit 1126, letter C55/14 dated 11Dec 1855 from border customs... goldsmuggled from Victoriato N.S.W.. Seized at Deniliquin from MaierSPEARS,value£125.Confiscated. Unit 1126,le tter C55/13 dated 11Dec 1855 from Customs.... A passengerfor Adelaide per"Havilah" Julius DETTMER was smuggling eleven ouncesofgold. Gold confiscated. Came before the Williamstowncourt was fined£100 or a week in gaol.The prisonerchose gaol."At torney general Inward Correspondence VPRS266/PO It is likely then that the Calnan boys committedcriminal offence and that the 'proceeds of crimelegislation' of the time was fairly severe ifone wascaught. All preciousmetals belong to the Crown. T hepurchase of a licence allowed you to dig, and the Crown setthe sale price of gold and the tax payable. So today, thegovernment (on our behalf) receives taxes/royalties formineralsremoved from our soil.
