Hi,

I found him in 1856:

Name: Walter Dudley
Gender: Male
Electoral Year: 1856
State: Victoria
District: South Bourke
Subdistrict: Templestowe
living Upper Hawthorne - a butcher

I found your Tree on Ancestry....I presume you are thinking he wasn't married to Mary Anne LOVE and the daughter Maria Lilla is not his?

Also found this in the papers:


North Melbourne Advertiser Friday 28 April 1876
Walter Dudley v William Cullen, goods, LI Os. Verdict for amount, with 234. Gd. costs.

another court case here:

South Bourke Standard (Vic. : 1861 - 1873) Friday 2 August 1861

I found the article about Alice Marian DUDLEY - the Walter here is referred to as a tradesman rather than a butcher or meat salesman...but then again maybe he was a tradesman for a while due to his bankruptcy

He was in partnership with Alexander Edward BUTLER' butchers and publicans' which was dissolved 1858

he was a slaughterman in 1859 - big court case then

Walter was,sadly, insolvent by 1863- a butcher, formerly of Camberwell

he advertised a shop to let at the Hotham Meat Markets in 1868

a Mrs Walter DUDLEY is advertising rooms in the Brittania Hotel in 1878.....if she is the wife, then here is a son:

Name: Maurice De Lacy Dudley
Father's Name: Walter Dudley
Mother's Name: Marion Obrien Pierse
Birth Place: Emerald Hill, Victoria
Registration Year: 1873

and a daughter

Father's Name: Walter Dudley
Mother's Name: Marion Pierse
Birth Place: Hotham, Victoria
Registration Year: 1877
Registration Place: Victoria
Registration Number: 22952


The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1956) Tuesday 11 September 1877
DUDLEY. -On the 7th inst, at 56 Peel street, Hotham,
