What are "guyns and wattles"?

Probably gums and wattles - types of tree.  There are many varieties of both.  Why not come and have a look ;D

Ha ha ha, solidrock, why not take up Carol's invite and come down here and admire our gums and wattles - actually that sounds like roosters without teeth - we have them too, if you're interested  ;)

I'm so pleased you think that George chose the name, because that's what I thought and hoped when I read your quote. I will see if I can find out anything about the title deeds.

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find the title deeds for Dingley Dell, but can’t find anything prior to 1922.
This is what I discovered on Trove:
1864 — March 8th — Gordon purchased Dingley Dell. —
Title Deeds.


1921 — Sept. 21st — Preliminary meeting of the Dingley
Dell Committee held. — Minute Book.

1921 — Oct. 3rd — Dingley Dell Restoration Committee
met S.A. Government representative. — Minute
Book.

1922 — Feb. 17th — Government of South Australia
purchased "Dingley Dell." — Title Deeds.

1864 Mar. 8 Dingley Dell transferred by George Randall (Transfer No. 7076 Title Deeds) to Adam
Lindsay Gordon, Gentleman. 101 Acres Approx)
(J.K. Moir Border Watch (Mount Gambier,Thursday 2 December 1937, page 1)

I’ve uploaded the Certificate of Title that I could find.

Thank you for making that title bigger, I was struggling with the first one. There are no names on it so it's not the transfer. I've searched SAILIS for Transfer No. 7076 Title Deeds but can't find them. I asked the Dingley Dell web site where  they are but they have'nt replied which makes me think they don't want anyone to see them. The plot thickens.  ???
