In 1841 Henry Elgar purchased 5120 acres in the Port Phillip district. Elgar’s Special Survey covered part of the parish of Boroondara and part of a then un-named parish (later Nunawading), east of Melbourne. The few references to Elgar in local history texts tell very little of the man. Bob Kerr will present what he has discovered of Henry Elgar’s life story.
