The Lyons-Ryan Family of 'Ellendale', Marong, Victoria

The Ellendale Tray

Ellen Lyons and her daughter, Brigid, left Marong in 1912 and moved to Melbourne while Ellen's son, Thomas, apparently remained in the Bendigo district. On the occasion of the family leaving Marong, the residents of the district presented them with a silver plated tray.

The Ellendale property was apparently leased from about 1912 until finally sold in 1920-21.
