  • Notes 
    • William Pack Edwards left Ashwell for the goldfields of Adelong, Australia in 1865 and after only a few years returned a wealthy man, to build this substantial house for himself and his sister. The house is called Adelong. The keystone above the door shows a carved Emu and Kangaroo, alongside native Australian grasses and the date 1881.
