UNDER THE LINO – The Mystery – The History – The Community

When Caylie and David Jeffery renovated the worst house on the busiest terrace in Milton, they had no idea what treasures they would find secreted inside.
The intriguing discovery of 1950’s money and bank books hidden under 60 years of old lino had Caylie turning to social media for help….
Who were Arthur and Eleanor Webster? Why were they hiding so much money? Who was Muriel White? Why was her bank book hidden in Milton when the address in the back said, ‘Bristol St, West End’?
A curious online community of amateur sleuths began a relentless quest for answers. As more clues were revealed, the ghosts of Old Brisbane started to rise from the depths of people’s memories.
The trail of evidence leading from that dilapidated Queenslander revealed many secret stories…. fraud, missing gravestones, theft, brothels, and murder.


Caylie Jeffery is a Brisbane writer and educator, with a passion for people and their stories. A former nurse and counsellor, Caylie has lived an adventurous life, filled with incredible experiences, projects and people who have helped make her journey so memorable. Her first book, Bedtime Stories for Busy Mothers, was a gift to all parents experiencing the highs and lows of parenting.
The Under the Lino Project has catapulted Caylie’s local community into her life in ways she’d never have predicted. She attributes its success to the relationship she has built with the friends and colleaques who have worked tirelessly alongside her for it duration.
Caylie and her husband, are still renovating their Heussler Terrace house after 22 years……



The meeting is hosted by Ailsa Corlett and Fleur Creed, and it is a self help group in which you pose your questions or problems and others within the group offer their ideas, web sites, books and knowledge on where next you might go to find your answers.

Ailsa has always been interested in family history, starting in 1989 after a trip to Central Otago and seeing photos and dresses of her Paternal ancestors in the Cromwell Museum. Being the eldest grandchild, her grandmother also told her stories and she obtained many of those wonderful little trinkets that get handed out.
Worked as a professional genealogist in the 1990’s specialising in NZ research for Australians. She was accredited under AAGRA. Now retired is very involved with GSQ and helps to run the website, the Monday and Wednesday Zooms as well as the FHTech group.



Fleur developed an interest in family history from her father, who was active in family history research, also writing books about the early settlers of the Queanbeyan, NSW district prior to the selection of the Limestone Plains as the site for the Federal Capital. Her ancestors came from England, Scotland and Ireland, and Africa via America, and include convicts, assisted immigrants and some free settlers. She is currently working on the SAG Certificate of Genealogical Studies, and has completed the Diploma of Family History at UTAS. Fleur has a PhD on the topic, “Australian churches building social capital in their local communities” and currently works part-time as an academic researcher.
