33 Victoria Street Flemington was the home of jockey Samuel Cracknell and his family during the 1880's. It was described as a weatherboard home with land and stables in the Rates books for the period. This was just one of a number of properties owned by Cracknell in Flemington but this was the one at which he chose to live. He moved from here about 1891 to live in Panton Hill but maintained ownership for a number of years. One of his tenants in the early 1900's was Alexander Robert Smith and his wife. Smith was a teacher.

In 1914, Alfred Cracknell lodged a Notice of Intention to Build with the City of Melbourne. On April 29 1914, the permit was issued to Alfred as both the responsible builder and owner of the property at 33 Victoria Street for "Alterations".

Building Notice of Intention PROV, VPRS 9289/P/1 Unit 8

By 1921 when Samuel wrote his will, the owner of the property was Samuel's son Alfred Cracknell, a railway employee. Alfred Cracknell was in residence when Samuel died in 1933.

This house and land now form part of a development undertaken by the Ministry of Housing in the 1990's to provide single story units suitable for elderly residents.

This property profile forms part of the Victorian Era Victoria Street Flemington project.
