Obituary, John L CREDLIN. From the Mount Wycheproof Ensign and East Wimmera Advocate, Friday 3 September 1915 Obituary, John L CREDLIN. From the Mount Wycheproof Ensign and East Wimmera Advocate, Friday 3 September 1915

The Credlins first settled in the small farming community of Wycheproof, in the Mallee some 230 Km North-West of Melbourne in 1873. Joyhn Luen Credlin had been born in Elmore in 1860 and moved to Wycheproff with his parents.

He married Mary Josephine who died in 1923.

haroldcredlinAmongst the wider family was a Leo Credlin who played 16 games for the Carlton Football Club player from 1922 to 1925. He also played one match for North Melbourne in 1930. Leo never married.

Researching through “Trove” I found there was a Constable Edward Loius Credlin who seems to have spent much of his working life from the late 1800’s in Bendigo, living in Morrow Street.

Unconnected and irrelevant fact; There is a Credlin Reef off the coast of Mackay in Queensland.
