52 (Research):When his mother (Annette Jane CHAPMAN) died, George Sidney and his 5 younger brothers were put in the care of their grandmother, Elizabeth CHAPMAN. A few years later he married Amelia Teresa BENNETT in Oakleigh. After his marriage he built alarge house on his property at Wheelers's Hill, and it was here that they raised their 5 children.
He had bought this 180 Acre property in 1912. He had paid for the property with the money he had made with a good crop of cabbage in a time when no other growers had a good crop.
Wheeler's Hill was built of brick from Gambles brickworks in Oakleigh. He only used the best bricks of each firing, so it took some time to collect enough bricks to build this exceptionlly large house, for its time, with 5 bedrooms and a livingroom large enough for 38 people dancing at the same time with room left over for chairs and tables. The dining table was so large that when the house was finally sold in the late 1950's it could not be moved out as it had been built rightinside the room some 40 years before. Wheeler's Hill had no electricity as long as it was owned by the Ryans there was only kerosene and candles and large external batteries were used to power the radio. There were also tennis courts andoutbuildings to house some of the many workers that were employed on the farm.
George Sidney was by occupation a market gardener, and a good one at that. It was he who led the other farmers on the yearly trips to the Ballarat-Bendigo areas to buy seed potatoes for the following years crop He and his brother Ern (Ernest
John) formed Ryan Brothers, a market garden farm.
The farm at Wheeler's Hill, at its peak, had 16 full time employees with others being brought into harvest labour intensive crops, such as peas and beans. The top men were paid top wages, 4 pounds 4 shillings a weeks.
" In the early 1930's George Ryan of Ryan Brothers, who grew cabbages, sprouts, cauliflowers and potatoes at Wheeler's Hill, purchased land and grew potatoes at Menzies' Creek. He also tried carrots, and marketed them at the Queen VictoriaMarket, mainly at the latter end of the local season - August to October. The carrots were of such high quality they received high prices, and other growers soon went into production."

Melbourne Markets 1841-1979
George Sidney bought 72 acres on Ridge Road at Menzies Creek in 1933-34 because the government was thinking about confiscating money held in banks but could not take land back
In the late 1950's he moved to Mt Morton where he raised cattle and continued to farm on other land in the Dandenongs. Upon retiring they moved to a small house on a lot in Box Hill. After his wife died in 1971 he built and moved into a house
in Sorrento.
All of his life he read many books on farming and related matters. Using this information, which many considered very strange, to help develop new and different ways of growing produce. He was always willing to experiment and try the latest
ideas, of which many worked for him.
He contracted diabeties just after his marriage. He did not get along well with his father James Sidney.

Family History
George Sidney was very involved with the Market Gardeners Association especially during the World War II 1939-45. He was in deputations with Government Department re essential industry and economics re priceing. He, and a group of other farmers, wouldgo off together for a few days breaks. A large Nash car, belonging to George Sidney was used on these occasions. He read anything he could find on "World Finance". He was interested in the Social Credit Movement. One of his favourite authorswas G.K.Chesterton. He was interested in Australian aboriginals - took a trip to the northern part of Western Australia where he met full-blooded aboriginals.

53 (Research):While growing up on the family farm Amelia Teresa was considered a bit of a tomboy. She and her older sister, Edith Mary, had a novel way of harvesting peas. They would pick only the ends of the rows and then let the cows in to do the rest.They would also ride their older brother's (Charles) racing bicycle up and down the dirt road outside the house and then have to sweep away the tracks with a broom before he arrived back home. From a young age she was involved with horses,breaking and training race horses for her Father and Brother. After her marriage she continued to break horses on the farm. However she did have a more cultured side of her as well, being an excellant pianist and dancer. She was activelyinvolved with the planning of the market garden farm that her husband and his brothers ran.
Most of her married life was spent at Wheeler's Hill, she later moved to another custom built house at Mt. Morton, only this time it was smaller, and still later to a even smaller house in Box Hill

Family History
When Amelia Teresa married she said she had never even boiled water. Until Ettie (Ern RYAN'S wife) brought her most of the recipes she used. The women of those times went off for holidays together. They were wives of other farmers, and one oftheir favourite haunts was Hepburn Springs near Daylesford. The morning after her wedding she awoke to the fact that she had her brothers- in -law (aged 10 to 23) to look after. They had sneaked over to the house because they didn't want to
live with their grandmother (Elizabeth CHAPMAN nee RENWICK)

The major sources of the tree pages are Vera Jesty's several trees, derived from years of work in the county records offices of Dorset and Somerset, parish records, wills, gravestones, and newspaper records. Another source, for the lower half of George and Adelaide's tree, is the Family History Society, who (we think) are the ones who produced a tree for Norman Sheldon Wright, of that line. Another, for the recent generations of Wm Ainsworth's line, is Margaret (Jesty) Asquith of Edmonton, Alberta, of that line. A major source for the Yetminster-Yeovil sheet is Pat Ricketts of Yeovil. More recently, I have used online censuses that are available on the Internet: the UK and US censuses of 1881 from the Mormon Church site, www.familysearch.org ; and the UK 1901 census site, www.census.pro.gov.uk . (The Canadian 1881 census is also available from the familysearch site, but has no Jestys.) The UK births-marriages-deaths (BMD) index is online (only the index: not the full records), and I have complete English Jesty birth entries from 1837 (the start of the national records) to 1880 or so. I have also checked a few specific marriages from the same source. I think it reasonable to assume that from the 1840s that index is pretty reliable (though sometimes a bit illegible in the pre-typewriter years). And the Societe Jersiaise of St Helier, Jersey, checked for me the 1861 and 1871 Jersey censuses (among other things, looking for a record of Capt George Jesty).
