Hand drawn map from “The History of the Village Of Houghton 1836-1950”
It was these maps and  South Australian electoral rolls which solved the puzzle of a place called New Guinea in South Australia where my grandmother and several of her siblings were born.

The electoral roll stated
  • Scadden, William Henry (my great grandfather)
  • New Guinea
  • freehold
  • sec 5398, New Guinea
