PAGE 16 February 2018 Dutch Courier AUSTRALIAN HISTORY - AT LAST? It was gratifying to read that a prominent Australian historian - Professor Geoffrey Blainey - made the comment that our history should be re-written and in particular the significant role of the Dutch navigators. Geoffrey Norman Blainey AC, FAHA, FASSA is an Australian historian, academic, philanthropist and commentator with a wide international audience. He is noted for having written authoritative texts on the economic and social history of Australia, including The Tyranny of Distance. He has published over 35 books, including wide-ranging histories of the world and of Christianity. But maybe it will be high time to rewrite that history of Australia, Geoffrey Blainey, one of Australia’s most prominent historians, says. “The role of the Dutch in Australia has so far remained too underexposed”, he told the Channel 7 television channel makers in 2010. He has often appeared in newspapers and on television. He held chairs in economic history and history at the University of Melbourne for over 20 years. In the 1980s, he was visiting professor of Australian Studies at Harvard University. He received the 1988 Britannica Award for dissemination of knowledge and was made a Companion of the Order of Australia in 2000. The Dutch role in Western Australia is the most prominent and can be attributed to the efforts of Captain Brouwer who devised the Brouwer route that resulted in shipping coming close to the west coast. The Brouwer route The old route used by the Portuguese from Cape of Good Hope to the Spice Islands went via the African East Coast and Madagascar. Any Portuguese visits would like have been of an exploratory nature of the South Land. In the face of my frustrations in the past 17 years this news from a prominent Australian historian like Prof. Blainey is like a ray of sunshine and I hope that this will serve as a benchmark for the future. Until then I had to be consoled by the following quotation: “Professional historians on the whole are a deceitful, distrusting, conniving and secretive bunch of beggars who would direct a blind man up a blind alley rather than risk giving him an advantage. Enthusiastic amateurs on the other hand may lack scholarship but they often have bucket loads of information which they are eager to share.” Circumstantial evidence Let us look at some of the “circumstantial evidence” that past historians rejected; Upper Irwin River White tribe 1861 “From Champion Bay (Geraldton) we hear that a tribe of natives have made their appearance at the easternmost sheep stations upon the north branch of the Upper Irwin, who differ essentially from the aborigines previously known, in being fairer complexioned, with light colored hair flowing down upon their shoulders, fine robust figures and handsome features; their arms are spears ten feet in length, with three barbs cut out of the solid wood, long ‘meros’ with which they throw the spear underhanded. A gentleman, who some months since explored the country to a distance of 100 miles north-east of the Irwin, informs us that he found these natives residing there, they were very friendly and gave, through a native interpreter serviceable information as to the country in their neighbourhood.” From Perth Gazette Friday 8 August 1861 A.C. Gregory - Address to Queensland Branch of the Royal Geographical Society in 1855 On his exploration of Murchison River area he reported that: “In 1848 I explored the country where the Dutchmen had landed, and found a tribe whose characters differed considerably from the average Australian. Their colour was neither black nor copper, but that peculiar colour which prevails with a mixture of European blood: their stature was good, with strong limbs, and remarkably heavy and solid around the lower jaw.” (R. Gerritsen: “and their ghosts may be heard” pg: 107.) White tribe 40-50 miles East of Perth? Another version of the story of the wreck The story of the wreck to the northward has just been communicated to us by Mr. F. Armstrong; the substance of the information is as follows : “I have this week, for the first time, been able to make inquiries of the Upper Swan Natives respecting the supposed wreck, my information is small but, perhaps, sufficient to throw some further light upon the subject. The natives tell me that about two and a half day’s walk from here, say about fifty miles, or, perhaps, not more than forty, are several white people living : they have not been there very long ; some of the natives whom I well know, belonging to the second Northern tribe, have been to them. The white people, they say, go out catching kangaroos; they are on friendly terms with the natives, and have given them food, as well as white “money.” They don’t know what they have come for neither do they say that they have either women or children. I described to them that a vessel had been sent in that direction ; but they said, on my pointing out the distance to which she was ordered to extend her search, that it was too far, and that they would miss the white people, as they were settled rather inland.” Perth Gazette July 26, 1834. All of this points to some Europeans mixing with the natives inland from the Mid-west coast of Australia prior to British settlement there in the 1850’s. This had not gone unnoticed because many of the local white people said that it was really a “foregone conclusion” Not so, however was this shared by historians et al. George Fletcher Moore Diary “Friday, July 11 [1834] – To-day I find that a great sensation has been created in the colony by rumours which have come to us through the natives, of a vessel that was wrecked nearly six months ago (30 days journey, as they described it) to the North of this, - which is conjectured to be about Sharks Bay. Further enquiries have been made from the natives; they said that “waylmen” – men from a distance to the North – have told them of it, and that there are men and women and children still alive, inhabiting two larger and smaller tents made of poles and canvas; that the ship is quite destroyed by the sea; and that a large quantity of money, like dollars, is lying on the shore.” (The story had appeared in the Perth Gazette on the 5th of July and subsequent issues, and the Colonial Secretary had been officially advised about the matter in a letter from Stephen Parker, dated 6 July.) Tom Web: E: Perth, Western Australia TO BE CONTINUED NEXT MONTH DUTCH SHIPS & SIX FINGERED CHILDREN By Jan James & Henny Crijns- Coenen Jan James (Kabarli) Honorary Member of the VOCHS and Genealogist of Northam Western Australia writes: “Dutch ships and six fingered children have intrigued me for many years and the discovery of another person with the condition sends me off into a frenzy of research”. “With this discovery of an undated photo of a six fingered Aboriginal child from “Frasers Range” and my theory of Dutch Ship wrecks off the South coast looked more and more likely”. “Fraser Range is half way between Norseman and Balladonia, 100 km east of Norseman, heading towards South Australia. Described as being the Western Nullarbor Plain, it was originally founded by John and Alexander Forrest on their expedition to Adelaide in 1870. The property Fraser Range Station was first settled by the Dempster brothers in 1872 making Fraser Range the first station to be founded on the Nullarbor Plain”. “At the time Fraser Range was settled, Perth was a penal colony and men with a ‘ticket of leave’ of many different nations were employed to assist the Dempster brothers in developing the station and building a number of impressive structures out of stone”. These ‘ticket of leave’ men were not the first non-aboriginal men to mix with the Aboriginal women of the area. THE ZUYTDORP The ship the Zuytdorp (Zuijtdorp) was built in the year 1701 for the Dutch East Indies Company known in short as VOC, in Middelburg in the Netherlands. She was used by the VOC from 1701 to June 1712 when she mysteriously vanished without a trace until the early years of the last century. We came to learn that she wrecked between Kalbarri & Shark Bay in Western Australia. She was 160 feet in length and of 1152 ton. She would normally carry a crew of 250. At the time of her wrecking against the cliffs that now bear her name, she was carrying 282 living souls on board. From 2011, for 12 months there had been stories in various newspapers about the Zuytdorp but more closer, in 2012, to the 300th anniversary of her wrecking drew nearer. Evidence was found that there were survivors but what happened to them had not yet been established. The aborigines from that area firmly believe that they have Zuytdorp survivor’s blood, having taken them in and then married into the clans. DNA studies have been carried out for a few years now and we are waiting to find out if indeed the aboriginal people could be right. There are those of us who believe this to be true as we feel that the survivors may have in all probability passed on a couple of illnesses that have then transcended the centuries up until today. Pv = Porphyria V which amongst its symptoms is purple pigment (mottled skin); EvC = Ellis-van Creveld which amongst its symptoms is extra digits either fingers or toes or both. Also cleft lip or palate and there is also short stature (dwarfism). This could all possibly be the proof along with DNA results that will link the Dutch survivors of the Zuytdorp with the aborigines and show that the Dutch could well have been some of the first Europeans to settle in this land and well before British colonization.
