    History & Achievements :

    Jonathon Cason was a policeman in Ballarat between 1853 & 1857 and his usual occupation prior to this was 'soldier'. Jonathon Cason first settled in Carngham near Ballarat, after being a policeman he was a farmer (his wife Christina Robbs  family were already settled here and were farmers) so I'm assuming he took on the family task and became a farmer. After being a farmer he became a storekeeper in Carngham (family word of mouth) then I have again family word of mouth that he lived in Menzies Creek Victoria and then have records from the Sands & McDougall Directory that he had a produce store at Normanby Street Moonee  Ponds. The Essendon Historical Society and they have a "Percy Judd' real estate record saying that he owned the house at Cowper Street North Essendon Vic. He died aged 84 in 1905 at North Essendon Vic and is buried at the Springvale Cemetery.  I have tracked down a lot of distant cousins etc and they all seem to think he came from India to Australia. Jonathon was a police officer on duty at the Eureka Stockade.
