Examples of "mardella"
Mardella is named after the Mardella Farm, which was established in the first few decades of European settlement. The names of both Mardella and the nearby Medulla Brook are derived from the same Aboriginal root word. Mardella has been used as a locality name since at least 1898, when a railway siding on the South Western Railway was opened under that name. However, it was only formally gazetted as a suburb in 1997. A community organisation erected a district hall in the 1950s, and at one stage Mardella supported a general store.
Mardella is an outer suburb of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, lying approximately south-southeast of the central business district. It is located within the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale, and at the 2011 census had a population of 303 people. Although falling within the Perth metropolitan area, Mardella is mostly rural in nature, with a significant proportion of the population engaged in farming.
The Serpentine River flows through Mardella, forming parts of its western and southern boundaries. The suburb also contains Medulla Brook, a small ephemeral stream. The western portion of Mardella contains a significant amount of uncleared bushland, as well as a small pine plantation. The rest of the suburb is mostly farmland. Mardella's eastern boundary is the South Western Highway, which links Perth with the South West. Part of its northern boundary is the route of a proposed extension to Tonkin Highway.
Butcher was born in Mardella (on the outskirts of Perth) to Rachael (née White) and Hugh John Butcher. He left school at the age of 14, and began working at the Midland Railway Workshops as an apprentice fitter and turner. In the 1920s, Butcher worked variously as a bank teller, engineer, and sheep farmer (at Bindi Bindi). He eventually trained as a mining engineer, and worked for periods at Mount Morgans, Yellowdine, and Marble Bar (as mine manager and a company director). Butcher enlisted in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) during World War II, serving with engineering and field radar units.
