Sons William Arnold and David Arnold in Victoria


From on Wednesday, 4 July 2012
Hi Elizabeth Thank you for your email, which brightened an otherwise miserably cold and rainy English summer's morning. I've had an enjoyable time looking at your websites, and mighty impressive they are too. I was intrigued to learn that the village of Arnold is named after your ancestor David Arnold from Gamlingay. That's quite something. My youngest son George was equally intrigued, because he spent six months from October 2010 to April 2011 living not that far away from Arnold, in Campbells Creek, Castlemaine. He was out there to play cricket but also worked in the bacon factory in Castlemaine. He had such a great time he now can't wait to go back. At the moment he's hoping to do the second year of his degree in Melbourne, if he can wangle it. I see that you already know about the Baptist Arnolds, but you may not know about this, which I copied about 30 years ago from the Cambridge Chronicle of Saturday 17 May 1806: 'On Saturday last John Arnold, the Gamlingay carrier, attempting to stop the fore horse in a team which ran away, in Trumpington-street, unfortunately fell down, and the horses going over him, fractured his skull. He was immediately conveyed to Addenbrooke's hospital, and there is some hope of his recovery. He is a civil, industrious man, and has a family of eight or nine children dependant on him for support.' It's not clear from the newspaper report whether the team that ran away belonged to him or whether he was trying to stop one belonging to somebody else. Trumpington Street is in Cambridge, by the way.


David Arnold, baptised 4 Oct 1821 at Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire, UK, wed Sarah Russell on 23 June 1842 at St Andrews the Less, Cambridge, and died 17 Dec 1877 at Kangadaraar Creek, Victoria, Australia.
David and Sarah had three sons born at Cambridge, William John Arnold 13 Jan 1843, wed Sarah Cundall and David Russell Arnold born 21 May 1845 wed Rosanna Wilson in a joint wedding on 25 Jan 1871. Frank died 3 Dec 1877 aged 24 years, of acute pneumonia. His father David died two weeks later, on 17 Dec 1877, of Chronic Bronchitis.
The family of five came to Australia on the Startled Fawn, arriving at Melbourne 31 Oct 1856. David's two brothers, Thomas 18, and Charles 16 accompanied them. John was born 16 Jan 1859 at California Gully, Vic, Aust and died of acute pneumonia 19 Nov 1876 aged 17. The family is buried at the Tarnagulla Cemetery.
Gold was discovered at Tarnagulla in such quantities that stone crushers and bayyeries were set up. Later gold was also discovered at Inglewood, and the rich quartz was taken to Tarnagulla to be processed - a long and tedious trip. There were no gold crushing machines at Inglewood and the miners had to transport their rock east towards Bridgewater so as to cross the Bullabul creek, then they would head for the crushing machines at Tarnagulla.
David Arnold decided to shortern the journey and had a track blazed through the forest having a 'three log with decking bridge built however this bridge was swept away by a flood. Arnold then spent 100 pounds building another bridge to the south and charged a toll of sixpence so as to recover his costs. A load of wool drawn by 6 horses is said to be the first to cross the bridge and the coaches from Talbot, Castlemaine, Dunolly and Inglewood used it also. David Arnold also owned land near what was later to become Arnold's bridge Railway Station.
This crossing became known as Arnold's Bridge, although the area was known as Kangderaar Creek. in 1890 the Post Office officially changed the area name. Today it is the small town (village) of Arnold.
The floods of 1878 washed away the bridge approaches, it was again repaired in March 1908 and April 1913. The current concrete bridge was erected after the bushfire of 17 January 1965.
This fire also killed Allan James McKean (he wed one of David Russell Arnold's grand-daughters, Ruby Arnold).
