Barry Tilley


This story, written by Barry Tilley, is about the Ball family whose members for a time were residents of Cheltenham and Mordialloc and active in community events. John and brother William were the first to leave Cornwall and to travel to Melbourne. “While working in Maldon John was fined 2/6 for leaving his horse and dray unattended while refreshing the inner man at the Royal Hotel”.
