"John Lawrey first took up a selection of 640 acres at Kinglake Central in the early 1880s, and married Elizabeth (nee Kershaw) in 1890. He also leased 101 acres on the Uplands site, and was granted the title to this land in 1904."[1]

"'The Uplands' homestead was large and catered to the needs of the Lawrey family, consisting of three daughters and three sons. There were four bedrooms, a bathroom, sitting room, dining room, office, pantry, kitchen and a men's dining room (used by the workers)."[2]
