In 1882 when Martha WIETH married J.F.W. FAEHRMANN he came to live with her on the 2 acres & 3 perches of land that Martha had inherited from her own mother Johanne Luise LUBASCH  [married to Gottlieb WIETH] which became 59 Auricht Road.   That parcel of land stretched from the 'Paechtown Rd' [now Auricht Rd] to the 'Mt Barker Road'.     See SAILIS Certificate of Title 16/15 regarding 59 Auricht Rd, Hahndorf.

The year before her old neighbour Mrs GETHINGS died, [1908] Martha WIETH purchases 3 acres from her [Jane Trevanion TOLL the wife of Robert GETHING]  which parallels her current land ownership at 59 Auricht Rd, in terms of that it also reaches from the 'Paechtown Rd' [now Auricht Rd] to the 'Mt Barker Road'.  This left Jane GETHING, now no longer living at 'St Julian's' with the remainder of her farm 46 acres, home & barn to be sold by her executors in 1909 to George WEATHERALD.     See SAILIS Certificate of Title 399/137 below.

This article is in regards to the family history, 17 years after this 3 acre purchase, when in 1924 Martha parts with a tiny portion of her land from CT 399/137, in fact '125 x 200 x 200 x 250', about 1 rood & 15 perches [1 rood is 40 perches, Martha sells 55 perches and there are 160 perches in 1 acre, therefore about  1/4 acre] to her older brother Oswald Gottlieb WIETH.  This property became 69 Auricht Rd, Hahndorf and when the freeway was built it became the final house on the left of Auricht Road which then became a dead end.  See SAILIS Certificate of Title 1344/71 below.

The land retained by Martha WIETH was: See SAILIS Certificate of Title 1344/72.
