      A VALLEY OF THE FINEST DESCRIPTION - a history of the shire of Lexton -By Margaret Oulton

      P 34-35: At a sitting of the Land Board, held in the Talbot Borough Hall on 12 September 1866, the following applicants were successful in obtaining land in the Lexton area; John Rice, C.F. Offerkamp, James Robertson (a carter), William Murphy, Amos Murphy and Lachlan Mc Kenzie. At a further sitting of the Board held later in the same year, James Smith of the Lexton Police Station, John Kennedy, Benjamin Pamment, Isaac Morvell and John Warren had their applications approved.

      Much of the land made available was of poor quality in climate conditions unsuited for cultivation and cropping. The best land, with permanent water, was often already taken up in the squatters’ holdings, making it very difficult for small farmers to successfully grow crops. Likewise, many had little or no experience in tilling the soil and thus learned the hard way, through trial and error. Fortunately others, who had arrived in the Colony with a variety of trades, learned fresh skills to meet the challenges of a changed lifestyle as farmers.

      P36: The selectors were true pioneers and this is borne out from stories told to a number of Lexton residents by their grandparents and great grandparents. Ben and Esther Pamment were living at Doctors Creek in the 1850’s. As their family grew up Mrs Pamment, known as Grannie Pamment, supplemented the family income by milking cows and making butter. Members of her family then carried the butter in a baker’s basket and on foot delivered it to her customers in the district. Grannie Pamment also made wine from grapes, dandelions, elderberries and mulberries. This was delivered and sold by her husband to the local wine shanties.

      P49: Doctors Creek School. The establishment of a permanent school for the settlers at Doctors Creek was first advocated by Harry P. Seymour, who was formerly a teacher at Lamplough and Lilicur. Through his interest and enthusiasm, a committee was formed consisting of James Morvell, Alexander Carmichael, Amos Murphy, Benjamin Pamment, Joseph Marks and James Robertson. Through their efforts funds were raised by the public for the erection of a weatherboard building 30x18x11 feet with a shingle roof. The building, which
      cost 53pound 17shillings and 6 pence was situated on half an acre of land excised from the selection of James Jones on allotment 60G, west of Doctors Creek.

      P108: At a meeting of the Lexton Rifle Club held on 1 September 1900 The Captain Benjamin Pamment presided, while in 1904 William Simpkin was Captain and J.J.H. Gray was secretary. The club was very active at this time with about 40 members some of whom took part in competions with surrounding Rifle Clubs, while others competed over the full rang of distances from 100 yards to 2,000 yards at the home range.
