Lavinia May Victoria Beer was born on 7 March 1887 in Taradale, New Zealand to Rose Edith & Arthur Wills Beer.[1][2]

Lavinia May Victoria Beer, known as May, married Arthur Albert Crane on 24 February 1911 in Melbourne, Victoria.[3]

Captain Crane and his wife and their seven children migrated to Australia from England and settled on 800 acres at Bindi Bindi which he named Brooklands. A horse and cart, a three furrow mould board plough and the nucleus of a horse team was all they had. Arthur and Lavinia arrived on the Morton Bay in 1926 with their children, Evelyn, Arthur, Ernest, George, Rose, Jean and Albert.[4]

Lavinia died 5 September 1979 in Floreat Park, Western Australia. [5]
