William Valentine Bailey, Lord Mayor of Malvern (1903-1904), purchased 1195 acres (484 hectares) of land south of Ballarto Road. Subdividing this into smaller blocks this enabled many farmers to own their own dairy farms. Thirty-five allotments were eventually sold.
A map obtained from Ern Marriot gave me the initial idea of the extent of the estate in Sherwood Riding, Cranbourne Shire.

Our family bought land originally from this estate. We bought it from the Bullock family.
