      Biographical data on Herbert Beuzeville

      Herbert Marshal Beuzeville was first contractor with the Forbes to Dandaloo Mail Run in 1877; he continued to live and work around the Trundle district after completing his term on the mail run and became one of the noted pioneers of the district.
      From a well educated background, Herbert was the son of James Beuzeville, a silk merchant and sericulturalist of French decent, who immigrated to Australia from England in 1848 with high hopes of establishing a silk industry in the colony. His experiments, however, were doomed to failure and James took work as an art master at the Kings School, Parramatta, and later joined with Rev. Charles Cutcliffe in opening an academy in Bathurst. This venture was also short lived, James joined the Public Service and became the registrar of Births, Death and Marriages at Bathurst from 1856 to 1883. He and his wife Jane (nee Myles) had 15 children of whom Herbert Marshal was the 13th.
      Born in 1850 Herbert Beuzeville moved into the Forbes district when the Forbes Gold Rush began and worked as a dispatch rider between the gold fields and Bathurst, which was then the nearest official town, early in the 1870’s he worked as an overseer on Burrawang Station. During this time he superintended the organization of the old stockyard at Trundle which was used for rounding up wild horses or “brumbies” as they were called. In 1877 he carted mail from Forbes to Dandaloo, the district’s first mailman.
      After that time he worked around the district as a contractor performing many of the various tasks necessary for the development of properties. In 1894 he worked as a contractor on ‘Woodview’ cutting scrub for 4 ½ cents an acre. In 1902 he worked at digging rabbit pits (an attempt at eradication of this menace) for $1 per pit. In 1905 and 1906 he worked as a contractor on Plevna Station. Tasks carried out included suckering ($3 per acre) bag sewing 70 cents per 100, fencing (including clearing 94 chains for $30) boring post holes @ 70 cents per 100, wiring @ $3 per mile, erection @ $2 per 100 posts, splitting 1,000 posts @ $1.20 per 100, and strainers @ 10 cents each. He also erected a sheep and stock yard at a cost of $23.
      For a time in the 1980’s he lived on a portion of The Troffs Station and worked there (a kurrajongs tree planted by his wife in 1887 soon after the birth of their son Norman, still stands today marking the site of their modest home – on ‘Norong’). Soon after this he selected property on the portion on Burrawang Station which he named “Alma” and which he farmed until 1909 when he moved into the Trundle Township and built a new home “Fairview”, Mentone.
      A well educated and cultured man, Herbert also wrote articles for the Royal Historical Society, the Bathurst Times and the Trundle Times under the pen name of “Bilbie”. At the time of his death a manuscript of a historical book he had written was in the hands of publishers but unfortunately publication was never completed.
      His wife was Sophia Scott, daughter of Joseph (John) Scott, who came to Forbes district during the gold rush and the took up Carrawobitty Station. The Scotts were also related to the Fields and Collits, pioneers of the Forbes district. Herbert died on 14th July, 1921 aged 71 years from pneumonia which he contracted when engaged in collecting census papers and is buried with his wife Sophia (who died 19th September, 1929) in Trundle Cemetery.
      Sophia is descended from
      Eliza Field and Joseph Scott
      Edward Field and Esther Lees
