You have done a great service to researchers. Thank you. Also, thanks for the Port Phillip Herald link - I've added to Samuel Hall. His grave is in the Old Melb General Cemetery, and I honour him as the first Hall here in my line, of which I am the last, having no children.
I have found the Bourchier stuff. I attach it, and a Hooper related doco. for you...
Enjoy! John
Thankyou for sharing, and enabling me to correct my mistakes.

Murray William James Bourchier grazier, soldier and politician, was born on 4 April 1881 at Pootilla, Bungaree, Victoria.
His military service was distinguished. He enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force in August 1914 and sailed as a lieutenant in the 4th Light Horse Regiment, serving seven months on Gallipoli. Bourchier was three times mentioned in dispatches. He was appointed C.M.G. in June 1919 and his A.I.F. appointment ended in October. In 1921 he was promoted colonel, commanding the 5th Cavalry Brigade, wed Minona Francis MADDEN daughter of Frank MADDEN and in 1921 in Vic. Aus.. Minona was born about 1887. She died 14 Jul 1964 in Glad? Vic. Aus..
Murray wed on 16 June 1921 at Holy Trinity Church, Kew, to Minona Francis, daughter of Annie Francis and Sir Frank Madden .
In 1920 Bourchier entered the Legislative Assembly as the Victorian Farmers' Union member for Goulburn Valley; he had to contest the 1921 election but between 1924 and 1935 he was unopposed as Country Party member. In January 1936 his appointment as agent-general in London was announced. It is likely that Bourchier had in fact been in Dunstan's cabinet under sufferance. Nevertheless, government members insisted that, with his sound knowledge of primary industry and the needs of farmers, he was well qualified for the job. The appointment was extended from the usual three years to five, and Bourchier left for London in August.
On 16 December 1937 he died in London of pernicious anaemia and cancer and was cremated; he was survived by his wife, a daughter and two sons, and left an estate valued for probate at 17,520.
Bourchier was knighted posthumously in January 1938.
