Knowing the address or location within the municipality of a particular property, or knowing the name of a rate payer, would be an advantage.Rate BooksThe revenue of a municipality is in part derived from the levying of rates on rateable properties within a municipal district. The rate book is the record of the levying and payment of rates on rateable properties. It includes for each rateable property information which identifies the property and the person rated, details assessment information and annual value of the property and records the amounts due, amounts paid, arrears and when rates abandoned.Entries in the books are arranged in rate number order which is usually determined by the order in which properties are valued. Properties are valued by street and in number order within streets. In some rate books one side of the street is valued and then the other. An index to street names often appears at the beginning of a rate book. Occasionally entries are arranged alphabetically by street name.Rate books can be bound volumes (in the case of bound volumes, separate books, or separate sections of books, are usually created annually for each individual municipal ward or riding), loose leaves or cards depending on the system in use in the municipality. The rates are signed by not less than three members of the council and sealed with the seal of the municipality.Rates can include general rates, extra rates and separate rates. General rates are levied equally on all rateable properties within the municipality. General rates form part of the municipal fund which is used for expenses incurred in carrying out the Local Government Act. The amount of the rate is determined by council although a statutory limit applies. A rate is struck as a proportion of the rateable value of each property.A council may levy an extra rate on a subdivision of a municipality to cover expenses incurred in that subdivision. The extra rate is in addition to the general rate although the two combined may not exceed a specified statutory limit. A separate rate book is kept to account for the extra rate.A separate rate may be levied when the council undertakes works for the special benefit of a particular portion of the municipality. A separate rate is only levied after the council has been petitioned by the owners and occupiers of property in that portion of the municipality to receive the benefit. A separate rate book is used to account for the separate rate.Rate Books - Donnybrook and Wallan WallanThe records in this series consist of a single volume which contains the rate assessment information relating to the Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District for the period 1863/64 to 1871/72 and for Shire of Merriang for 1872/73.The Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District was first defined and named by proclamation in the Victorian Government Gazette on 19 August 1863 (page 1822). Earlier that year the Donnybrook, Wallan Wallan and Bylands Road District had been proclaimed (Victorian Government Gazette, 26 June 1863, page 1418). The later proclamation redefined the area of the district and removed an area which, in March 1864, became incorporated into the Bylands and Glenburnie Road District. On 3 November 1871 the Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District was renamed and proclaimed the Shire of Merriang.The first entry in the volume in this series is an estimate of expenditure for the Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District for 1863. The entry, and subsequent related rate assessment entries are dated November 1863. There are no entries dated earlier so that it is assumed that no rate assessments were made by the previous agency, VA 3026 Donnybrook, Wallan Wallan and Bylands Road District.The VPRS 2963 Rate Books, Shire of Merriang, is considered to be a subsequent series to this series.Location of the RecordsAt the time this registration was prepared the rate book which constitutes the make up of this series had not been transferred into archival custody.

Using the Records

Researchers should note that this series has not been transferred into archival custody. Information recorded in this series was microfilmed and transferred as part of VPRS 2337, Rate Books [Microfilm copy of VPRS 7059; VPRS 7963; VPRS 8332] in 1976. A copy of VPRS 2337 is available for use in the Public Record Office's Laverton Search Room.

Because of the relatively small number of entries, researchers may pick up relevant information simply by browsing through the entries. Knowing the address or location within the municipality of a particular property, or knowing the name of a rate payer, would be an advantage.

Rate Books

The revenue of a municipality is in part derived from the levying of rates on rateable properties within a municipal district. The rate book is the record of the levying and payment of rates on rateable properties. It includes for each rateable property information which identifies the property and the person rated, details assessment information and annual value of the property and records the amounts due, amounts paid, arrears and when rates abandoned.

Entries in the books are arranged in rate number order which is usually determined by the order in which properties are valued. Properties are valued by street and in number order within streets. In some rate books one side of the street is valued and then the other. An index to street names often appears at the beginning of a rate book. Occasionally entries are arranged alphabetically by street name.

Rate books can be bound volumes (in the case of bound volumes, separate books, or separate sections of books, are usually created annually for each individual municipal ward or riding), loose leaves or cards depending on the system in use in the municipality. The rates are signed by not less than three members of the council and sealed with the seal of the municipality.

Rates can include general rates, extra rates and separate rates. General rates are levied equally on all rateable properties within the municipality. General rates form part of the municipal fund which is used for expenses incurred in carrying out the Local Government Act. The amount of the rate is determined by council although a statutory limit applies. A rate is struck as a proportion of the rateable value of each property.

A council may levy an extra rate on a subdivision of a municipality to cover expenses incurred in that subdivision. The extra rate is in addition to the general rate although the two combined may not exceed a specified statutory limit. A separate rate book is kept to account for the extra rate.

A separate rate may be levied when the council undertakes works for the special benefit of a particular portion of the municipality. A separate rate is only levied after the council has been petitioned by the owners and occupiers of property in that portion of the municipality to receive the benefit. A separate rate book is used to account for the separate rate.

Rate Books - Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan

The records in this series consist of a single volume which contains the rate assessment information relating to the Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District for the period 1863/64 to 1871/72 and for Shire of Merriang for 1872/73.

The Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District was first defined and named by proclamation in the Victorian Government Gazette on 19 August 1863 (page 1822). Earlier that year the Donnybrook, Wallan Wallan and Bylands Road District had been proclaimed (Victorian Government Gazette, 26 June 1863, page 1418). The later proclamation redefined the area of the district and removed an area which, in March 1864, became incorporated into the Bylands and Glenburnie Road District. On 3 November 1871 the Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District was renamed and proclaimed the Shire of Merriang.

The first entry in the volume in this series is an estimate of expenditure for the Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District for 1863. The entry, and subsequent related rate assessment entries are dated November 1863. There are no entries dated earlier so that it is assumed that no rate assessments were made by the previous agency, VA 3026 Donnybrook, Wallan Wallan and Bylands Road District.

The VPRS 2963 Rate Books, Shire of Merriang, is considered to be a subsequent series to this series.
