Edgar Richmond Bayly (Src. Andrew Bayly

Mary's parents lived on Barrett Rd and she walked across country to attend the Omata School. Edgar and Mary first lived in a shingle wood house next to the Omata Hall on a 13 acre farm. Edgar, a shy man, was named after a prominent early settler J C Richmond. He was a metal contractor in partnership with a Mr Sole. When they formed and metalled the Nth Mt Egmont road with pit metal (4 miles in all) they lived in tents on the mountain.They used a light train line to get the metal from pit to road 1907-09. Also Edgar worked on the Upper Pitone Rd and the Carrington Rd where they made a deviation at the Ratanui Hill, also on the Strathmore saddle. They used a portable crusher lined with wood after carting the stone from rivers etc. In 1903 he bought 50 acres on Hurford Rd. Mary, his wife and a man who worked on the farm, milked the cows by hand. The cowshed was made from poles cut from the bush, the roof being covered with straw to run the water off. The staw lasted 3-4 years. At this time, the five eldest children attended the Omata School, riding each day on horseback. In 1909 Edgar bought 140 acres on Waireka Rd and in 1911 finished contracting and bought B Clemow's milkround. He served on the School, Hall and Patriotic Council committees, also was Chairman of the Omata and Royal Oak Cheese Factory. Albert, his eldest son, has duplicated most of the positions held by his father in the Omata district. Once when out shooting, Edgar accidentally discharged his gun,and wounded his arm which was affected for the rest of his life. He bought the Beach Road property where he retired.
