Applicant                       Station                   Date
Charles Hutton               Strathdownie        24 January 1847

Notes from the website:
Captain Charles Hutton, overlander, who arrived in Port Phillip (Victoria) in 1838, established the East Strathdownie pastoral run in 1845. This run of 39,324 acres was on the Glenelg River 16 miles from Dartmoor. Earlier, in 1838, Hutton took up the Campaspe Plains run of 144,900 acres near Heathcote, which he held until 1840. Hutton then took up his Hutton's Station, or Flowerdale, 10,240 acres of land 12 miles south-west of Yea, which he held between 1840 and 1845 (Billis & Kenyon, pp. 87, 186, 203, 208).

A few years later, in 1848, Hutton was involved in a bitter dispute with John Wood Beilby, a Scottish pastoralist, who had been manager of his Flowerdale run between 1843 and 1844. Beilby, who arrived in Port Phillip in 1841, took up the neighbouring Western Strathdownie run of 28,000 acres on the Glenelg River, 12 miles north of Dartrnoor in 1845. He held this run until August 1848.

On 13 March 1848, when applying for a depasturising license, Beilby complained that 'Charles Hutton has hunted our cattle (2600 head) from these lands, and depriving them of sustenance, have caused us an extreme expense and loss, which if continued for a few months, will ruin us.' Perhaps as a result, in August 1848, Western Strathdownie's lease was transferred to Thomas and Somerville Learmonth. By February 1849, Hutton's East Strathdownie run was in the same hands (ibid, pp. 203, 300; East Strathdownie and Western Strathdownie Pastoral Run Papers).
