The name Beaumaris in Victoria was suggested after Beaumaris in Wales


in 1853 - which was 100 years before BCS Inc. began - by a Penrose Nevins Esq.


In Australia, place names have often been associated with land speculation.


Beaumaris in Wales is now a sister city of the City of Bayside, Victoria. It is said to have gained its name


from the Norman French words 
"beau mareys" meaning "fair marsh".

 

That last hyperlink also shows good photographs of Beaumaris Castle,


which King Edward I began to build in 1295, without being restrained,
 

as our present sovereign - and some that exercise authority under her - is somewhat,


by any municipal planning scheme, or Vegetation Protection Overlay controls.
