Editors Comments:
a. The names indicate who owned, rented, paid rates and lived on the land.
b.To be more precise Family Researchers are advised to check these details with the Electoral Rolls and Cranbourne Rate Books before publishing them in their own histories. In the one year a farmer who lives on his own property might rent further land and therefore pay rates on that rented land.
c. Cranbourne Shire Rate books cover the period 1863-1951 (88 years)
d. The list does not include everyone who ever lived on these properties.
e. About land owners: Some didn't live in Clyde . Others gave their address as Berwick, Beaconsfield or Cranbourne even though they lived in Clyde. The Rate Books list the Real Esate Agents who purchased properties that were later up for sale.
