TS Note: The location of Staunton can't be identified through directories. It is presumably on MMBW plans under another name. Sands states that a house wasbuilt for Williamson a lot mid way between Toorak Rd and Malvern Rd, no side given TS Note: Further information from rate books from Di Foster indicates that 'Staunton' becomes 'Norla' qv. Rate books for 1874 & 1875 show Hartley Williams at this site, John McVean in 1876, and later Simon Fraser [ie 'Norla']
