John Bulmer

John Bulmer Christening: 22 AUG 1831 son of Isabella Bulmer and William Bulmer at Houghton Le Spring, Durham, England

John Bulmer was born 30 June 1833 at Monkwearmouth in Durham. He was one of the two who set up the Aboriginal mission at Yelta, in north west Victoria at the confluxion of the Murray and Darling Rivers.
Aldo Massalo's book 'Aboriginal Missions in Victoria pub 1970 states that he arrived on the Emigrant 12 Jan 1853, with his employer John Eggars who died during the voyage, leaving Caroline Eggars and her children Elizabeth, John and Margaret.
John married 1858 #246 to Marian Stocks, a school teacher interested in helping the mission school flourish, but she became ill and they retired to Melbourne where she died 1861 #207.

From the now closed Shoal Haven web page on John Bulmer

About The Man Who Began The Aboriginal Mission At Lake Tyers
   John Bulmer was born 30 June 1833 at Monkwearmouth in Durham. At the age of 16 he was apprenticed to Mr. Eggers, a cabinet maker and joiner, who in 1852 decided to emigrate to the Colony of Victoria. John went with him but on the voyage out Mr. Eggers died, leaving his wife and her five children in John's care. He worked as a carpenter for a time and earned enough to clear his debts and help the Eggers family return to England in 1854.
   Freed from his responsibility, John tried mining at Burnt Creek fields near Dunolly, but he had no success at this and returned to Melbourne, where he attended a meeting on his first night at the St Mark's Church Hall in Collingwood. Here he heard Thomas Hill Goodwin speak about a plan to set up a mission station for Aborigines at Yelta on the Murray River, west of what is Mildura today. John, who had been moved by the pitiable state of Aborigines he had seen on the goldfields, offered his services and joined Goodwin in May 1855 and worked with him there for three years. He married in 1856, but his wife died in 1861.
   In that year John Bulmer was summoned to Melbourne to discuss setting up an Aboriginal Mission in Gippsland. Two stations were planned, one in South Gippsland and one in East Gippsland. Rev Frederick Hagenauer decided to set up the South Gippsland Station at Ramahyuck near Stratford and Bulmer was to seek a suitable site to the East.
   This was to be the beginning of the Lake Tyers Aboriginal Mission.


John Bulmer wed 1862 #1048 to Caroline Blay born in Hobart, and they decided to pioneer a mission to the Aborigines at Lake Tyers, in Eastern Victorian coast. This was well received by the Aboriginal community and became the family's life work. For more details see John Bulmer at Yelta Mission,
