Summary A collection relating to Kuruc-a-ruc homestead, Rokewood, Victoria, owned by the Elder family from 1863-1963. Included in the collection is a photographic copy of a manuscript entitled "Apioneer family 1841-1903". The manuscript details the history of the Rowe family from the time of William Rowe's arrival in Australia. During his search for land William spent time staying at Kuruc-a-ruc, which was then under the ownership of the Aitchinson family. The Rowe family acquired a large amount of land in the region, including the property of Glenfine. The collection also contains a large album of portraits, taken predominantly by Melbourne and Geelong photographers. Two other albums feature miscellaneous family photographs. There is also a small collection of loose photographs and a newspaper article, which relate to a survey of the “Dog Rocks” area near Geelong
