The People of Early Mt Barker District

The following is intended to list some of the families living in the Mt Barker area last century.  This is by no means a complete list. I will endeavour to add  more as I come across them.  I have also tried to indicate where in the area, these families lived.  If you know of a family that lived in the area that is not listed here, please let me know by E-mail.  There are hundreds of names I could list here, and eventually will add more - they don't have to be the rich and famous either - in fact, I would prefer they were just the ordinary people who went quietly about their lives without really raising a fuss.  I have recently added a new section containing short biographies of the lesser known people of the District - the Little People - those that the histories of the town forgot.

1839 - 1900

(The subsequent People information included in the the original page is now deleted on this page)
