Description:

The residence of Francis Cotton. Beginning as a temporary cottage without foundations his home, Kelvedon,
expanded with his family to become a landmark on the east coast. A
pioneer in developing fine fleeces for export to London, he also sent
wheat to Hobart, meat to the Maria Island Probation Station and Waterloo
Point, and wattle bark to England. As his land grants and capital
increased, he took more interest in the development of local commerce
and communications.
