https://www.henburygolf.com.auThe story of how Henbury came to be was a story my mother told me: “Mrs Saville and Mrs Fink had an argument on Kandos golf course, so Mrs Saville started her own course.” My mother went on to explain how her father, (my grandfather W H Walsh), wanted to show his support for Mrs Saville who was a good customer. He bought three of his daughters each a set of golf clubs and joined them at Henbury.
I liked that story. It was about a strong woman who took matters into her own hands. It was also about loyalty and unexpected gifts.
Read how Henbury became “something out of the ordinary”. This article by Colleen O’Sullivan appeared in the Mudgee Guardian 24 June 2013.
Four things about me. I like reading, writing, researching and living in the country. In particular I like living at Kandos, where we have been for more than a decade. I have deep roots in this part of the country. My mother spent her early life in Kandos. My father was born at Rylstone. My grandparents were pioneers of Kandos and Rylstone. And I was born at Lue - and went to school in Mudgee. The history of this area excites me and I would like to share it with you.
My monthly blogs are posted on the 1st of each month. However I intend taking a six-month furlough from blogging to continue a project that has been sitting on the shelves for too long. Also, after 71 posts and 59 articles I feel a bit stale. I posted my first blog in May 2017.
There is plenty to read on this site. If you are looking for a particular person or subject use the Search function. My last post is scheduled for 1/3/2022.
If you pressed "Follow" and gave your email address, the blogs will be sent to you when I return.
Thank you readers for your interest, comments and support.
