Mrs. J. W. Nicholls, of Marryatville, who celebrated her 93rd birthday recently, was born at Cappanara, Ireland. As (Miss Conway she came to South Australia, Mr. H. Watts, the first Postmaster-General of the province being a fellow-passenger, in the Navarino, in December, 1837. Having witnessed a dispute between two prominent colonists at a Government House dinner, regarding the owner-ship of some land which led to a court case, she was summoned to give evidence before Mr. J.

COOKE, Archibald Died 24 April 1883 at Adelaide, SA Died aged 68 years Buried West Terrace Cemetery Road 3 Path 4 W 11 Our obituary notices contain the announcement of the death of the above-named gentleman, which occurred on Tuesday at the residence of Mr. Gilles, South-terrace. Mr. Archibald Cooke arrived in Holdfast Bay in the Navarino in December, 1837, having preceded his brother James by six years. The deceased was first engaged in connection with the timber traffic in the Tiers, after which he bought a section of land at Strathalbyn, adjoining Dr. Rankine's, which he farmed for a short time. Being a man of an adventurous disposition, and possessed of great muscular power, the work of exploration in which he engaged after the sale of his land at Strathalbyn was very congenial to him. He was the discoverer of water on the plains at East Wellington which bear his name. Then, in conjunction with his brother and Dr. Rankine, he utilized that and adjacent country as a sheeprun, where he has resided for the last thirty-five years. He also at much personal hardship pushed through the Ninety mile Desert and examined the Tatiara country, thence proceeding southerly, and returning by way of the Coorong. He formed the first commercial settlement at Lacepede Bay in 1857, but he and his brother had taken up land in the neighbourhood five years before, opening the trade to Kingston by means of the cutter Swallow. The Brothers Cooke, it will be remembered, were also very active in advocating the construction of the Kingston and Narracoorte Rail way. About a month ago the deceased gentleman was taken ill while on his way to Lillimur with horses, and became so much worse that he had to return. His complaint was of an internal nature. Mr. Cooke's disposition was extremely genial, and he was a very popular man in the circle in which he moved. He leaves a widow, but no family.

The Advertiser Thursday 15 July 1897 page 4
DEATH OF MR. THOMAS FISHER. On Wednesday evening Mr. Thomas Fisher, father of Mr. L A. Fisher, died at his residence, Princes-street, Croydon, in his 8lst , year. Mr. Fisher was born at Mount Pleasant, Gray's Inn-lane, London, on February 5. 1817. His father was a gunmaker, and for some hundreds of years his ancestors had lived in the same locality. He arrived in South Australia with his wife and daughter in the Navarino on December 6, 1837, and for a year resided in the city, turning his hand to any kind of employment. Later ho took up his residence in Orsnaond-street, Hindmarsh, and afterwards removed to Bowden, and for the past 45 years had lived at Croydon, in the town of Hindmarsh. A carpenter by trade he for some time worked for Captain Martin, and assisted to build a house for Sir John Morphett on North-terrace, Adelaide. For four years he was in the employ of Mr. Henry Weston Phillips. He was one of a party who went to Rapid Bay and Encounter Bay with Sir John Morphett in the early days to select land for English capitalists. He also helped to build a store at Port Adelaide for Mr. George Phillips, in whose employ he remained for a few years. For four years be was foreman for Mr. Crawford, at Hindmarsh, and he worked for some time on the Port railway under Mr. Isaac Puddy, who was superintendent of the permanent way, and later on he went into the carriage department under the late Mr. Sorrell at the junction of the Port and northern rail ways. He remained in that department when it was transferred to the city, and was connected with it for 20 years. He went to the Victorian gold fields three times, but was not successful. He was a pioneer Sunday-school teacher, and, with Miss Fisher, -attended the celebration of the jubilee of the establishment of the parish of St. Paul's, Port Adelaide, last year. He took great interest in Sunday-school work. While at Port Adelaide 51 years ago he, with his wife and Mr. W. Tyzak, conceived the idea of starting a Sunday-school with a view of getting the children off the streets on Sunday. They applied to Captain Lipson for the use of the wooden building used for religious worship by the Anglican Church, and this granted they started the first Sunday-school at the Port. They continued their work for nearly twelve months, and success attended their efforts. The Rev. G. C. Newenham, who arrived here in the Navarino, was then appointed the first resident clergyman of the Port Adelaide parish. Mr. Fisher continued a teacher under his guidance until the arrival of Bishop Short. He was one to start a Sunday-school at Alberton in connection with 'a union church,' the services being conducted in the morning by the Wesleyans and Congregationalists, in the afternoon by Mr. Newenham, and in the evening by Captain Scott. When the first Wesleyan Church was started in Fourth street, Bowden, in the forties, Mr. Fisher was one of the first Sunday-school teachers. Later on he was a teacher in the Hindmarsh Congregational Sunday-school, but owing to advanced age he for some years had not been able to follow up the work of Sunday-school teaching. Among the collection of Sunday school books exhibited at the festival of St. Paul's was a Bible and hymn-book presented to Miss Fisher early in 1847. For a number of years Mr. Fisher had lived a retired life. He was widely known and had a large circle of friends, and his reminiscences of the early days of South Australia were exceedingly interesting. He survived his wife, who died several years ago, and leaves four sons— Messrs. George Fisher, Samuel Fisher, Paul Fisher, and Isaac A. Fisher— one daughter (Miss Fisher), and a number of grand children.

AN OLD COLONIST DEAD. The death of Mr. Benjamin Grove Fuller, which took place at Morgan on June 2, removes another name from the old colonists' roll. Mr. Fuller was born within sound of Bow Bells on December 9, 1815, arrived in South Australia by the ship Navarino in 1837, accompanied by his wife and one child, and, with the exception of a few brief visits to the Victorian goldfields, resided in this State up to the time of his death. Left an orphan at the age of 9, the youngest of a family of 19, he had a most interesting career, and saw the growth of South Australia from a very small settlement to a most important State of Federated Australia. Landing at Holdfast Bay, he settled where the city of Adelaide now stands, and witnessed all the stirring events which took place in the early days. Being by trade a carpenter he soon found ample employment, and within a short time became a large employer of labor, being associated with others in the erection of some of the first Government buildings and the residences of the earliest colonists. At one time in the early days he was the owner of all, or nearly all, the land adjacent to Leigh-street, but unfortunately for him he disposed of it before it became of much value. He also for a time turned his attention to farming in the neighborhood of Sturt, but not meeting with much success he returned to his trade, removing from Adelaide to Mount Barker about the year 1847. After residing at Mount Barker for about 19 years he went to Swanport, on the Murray, where, with his son, (Mr. B. Fuller, jun.). now of Perth. W.A.. and his sons-in-law (the late Mr. A. Martin and the late Mr. Tonkin), he was interested in the river trade. In 1878 he went to Milang, where he spent seven years, and then removed to Morgan. At this place he remained till his death. The deceased was twice married, his first wife, who accompanied him from England, having died at Swanport in 1871. His second wife and nine children (Mr. B. Fuller, of Perth, W.A.; Mrs. A. Martin, of Murray Bridge; Mrs. Bungey, of Wallaroo; Mrs. German, of Wentworth; Mr. A. Fuller, of Mildura; and four unmarried daughters), 16 grandchildren, and 45 great-grandchildren survive. The deceased had been actively associated with the Methodist Church from the time of his residence at Mount Barker, occupying at various times several official positions, including those of a local preacher, Sunday school superintendent, society steward, and trustee of various church properties.

The death of Mr. Benjamin Grove Fuller, which took place on Monday, June 2, reference to which was made in our last issue, has removed another of the oldest colonists of the state. Born in the year 1815, at London, within the sounds of Bow Bells, the deceased died at the age of 87, and with the exception of a few visits to the Victorian goldfields, had spent 45 years of his life in this state. Left an orphan, the youngest child of a family of nineteen, at the age of nine years the deceased had a most interesting career and had, like many of the earliest colonists experienced many turns of the wheel of fortune (writes a correspondent). With his wife and one child he embarked for Australia in the Navarino, landing at Hold fast Bay in the year 1837, and soon after settling here followed the calling of a carpenter and builder, and in the early days of the history of the state was a well known colonist, taking part and witnessing all its stirring events. For some time be was a large employer of labor in Adelaide and claims to have built the first two-storey stone house in Hindley-street, besides being associated with others in the building of many of the first Government buildings and residences of the earliest colonists. At one time he owned all the land now adjacent to Leigh Street, but, unfortunately for him, disposed of the same long before it became very valuable. After following his trade for several years, he turned bis attention to farming in the neighborhood of Sturt, but not meeting with success he returned to Adelaide until the year 1847, when be removed to Mount Barker, where he resided for nineteen years. Leaving Mount Barker for Swanport, he remained there for twelve years, being at this time interested in the river trade with his son, Mr. Benjamin Fuller, jun, now of Perth, W.A., and his sons-in-law, the late Mr. A. Martin and Mr. Tonkin. Leaving Swan port in 1878, his next place of residence was Milang, where after a residence of seven years he removed to Morgan, where he spent the concluding seventeen years of his life. During his residence in Adelaide he associated himself with the Congregational Church, when the Rev. J. L. Stow ministered to the spiritual needs of the inhabitants of the small settlement in and around Adelaide. Upon his removal to Mount Barker, he associated himself with the Wesleyan Methodist Church, and with the exception of the period when he resided at Milang, where he again associated himself with the Congregational Church, of which he held the position of a local preacher up till the time of his death, and even after he had passed his 80 birthday would, when the necessity arose, conduct services at the Morgan church. The deceased was twice married, his first wife, who accompanied him from England, having died at Swanport in 1871. His second wife and nine children survive him (Mr. B. Fuller, of Perth, W.A., Mrs. A. Martin, of Murray Bridge, Mrs. Bungay, of Wallaroo, Mrs. Gorman, of Wentworth, Mr. A. Fuller, of Mildura, and four unmarried daughters).

BAIRD, James 1820 - 30 March 1909 at Lake Plains, SA
Buried Milang Cemetery
Mr. James Baird, of "Woodstock," near Langhorne's Creek, who died on the 30th March last, was one of the oldest pioneers of the south, having arrived in South Australia with his parents, in the ship "Navarino,'' in Dec. 1837. He was a twin, and his brother Thomas still survives him. They were born in Dunfermline, Fifeshire, Scotland, and Mr. Baird received his education first by private tuition, and afterwards at a high school in Demfermline. On leaving school he received a position with a mercantile firm' (legal and banking combined), and when his parents decided to come out to South Australia, he of course left the office to come with them. They were about five months on the voyage, and on arriving at Holdfast Bay were met and conveyed by a bullock dray tn the home preprepared for them, somewhere about where Hindley St in Adelaide now is. After that Mr. Baird's parents took up land, and made a home near Adelaide. The place was called Gleville, but is now known as Beaumont, the residence of the late Sir Samuel Davenport. The twin brothers grubbed the first tree in Hindley-st. Mr. Baird often told how that his brother Tom was the first one to find the body of the first white man who was killed by the blacks. The body was hidden and left in some bushes on the edge of the Torrens, having been pierced by very sharp kangaroo bones, which the natives always carried about with them them for hostile purposes. When the police went after the black man to capture him he climbed up a tree. Tom Baird threw a stone and hit the black, that brought him down out of the tree and he was taken prisoner. In the meantime James' parents, asked the manager of the first bank in Adelaide to give him a position there, but were told to wait as there was no vacancy just then. Having heard of a survey party going out to Port Linoln, Mr. Baird joined them. The party encountered stormy weather, and were nearly shipwrecked off the coast there. He often told how they subsisted on the mutton birds, which were numerous over there. During Mr. Baird's absence at Port Lincoln, the manager of the bank sent for him as he had now an opening, but young Baird having had a taste of bush life, would not take up office work again. Some time after that he went to Mount Crawford, and having gained great experience in stock there, he then went to Angaston, and joined Mr. H. Angas, to act as manager for Mr. George Fife Angas in matters connected with cattle and sheep, staying with him for several years. Mr. Baird often related how he and others used to swim the Murray on horseback after mobs of cattle near Blanchetown, and of the many daring deeds of horsemanship, accomplished by them I during their rides through the bush with no track to guide them, the sun alone being their compass. Mr. Baird was a clever horseman and a good horse judge. Having also become a good judge of cattle. Mr. J. M. Angas used to send him cut to purchase from the German settlers around. Some of them objected to Baird being sent, and requested Mr. Angas to come himself and do the buying, because they said if Baird came he would be sure to pick out all the best ones. Mr, Baird often spoke of a fellow bush man, Mr. Swann, who was a beautiful whistler. When they were out riding in the bush together Mr. Swann would start whistling,- and so clear and sweet were the notes, that Mr. Baird always compared it to a bird, warbling and re echoing through the trees, Many a night Mr. Baird said they would unsaddle their horses and hobble them, then lie down with their, saddles for a pillow, until morning broke, then off on the old bush track again. After Mr. Baird left Angaston, he came to Langhorne's Creek. and built the hotel there. During the gold rush to Bendigo he, too, thought he would go and try his luck there. In those days the gold escort from Victoria used to make the Langhorne's Creek hotel their stopping place. Mr. Baird was also acquainted with Mr. Langhorne whom the Bridge there was named after. On Mr. Baird'a return from the diggings, he took up land, and made a home where he lived until the time of his death. He was a typical Scotchman, reserved but very hospitable; no traveller was ever refused a night's lodging by him. He too, was a great reader of Shakespeare, Sir Walter Scott. Lord Byron, and last but not least Bobbie Burns, and when conversing was never at a loss to reply either with a prose or poetical quotation. He presented bis volume of Shakespeare to his nephew, James Coulthard, as a dying bequest, nearly two years ago and said that if he read and studied it he would find many passages there that could be found in the Bible. Mr. Baird married a Miss McHarg, of McHarg's Creek, who predeceased him many years ago. His home at Langhorne's Creek, where he resided with his daughters, he called 'Woodstock' after the title of one or Sir Walter Scott's novels. His only son, John Howard, died some years ago.

BAIRD, Thomas 1820 - 05 December 1910 at Kapunda, SA
Our Kapunda correspondent Writes: —Mr. Thomas Baird, who resided with his daughter, Mrs. O'Callahan, Clare road, Kapunda, died on Monday, at the advanced age of 90 years. He was born in Fifeshire, Scotland, on March 17, 1820, and arrived at Adelaide in the ship Navarino in 1837. Before he moved away from the future city, Mr. Baird and his twin brother James discovered on the banks of the Torrens the body of the first white man who had been murdered by the blacks. Mr. Baird had the honor of grubbing the first tree where Hindley-street is now laid out. Subsequently he was engaged by Mr. Rankine, at Mount Crawford, who carried on dairying. He had been attract ed to the Kapunda district by the discovery of the copper mines, and bought a section of land where the public school now stands. When the Victorian gold diggings broke out, Mr. Baird and his brother took out passengers from Kapunda in his bullock dray. Before he left he sold his land to Mr. Jas. White for £5. After his return he started carting on the Burra road, but soon settled down to grazing and agriculture at St. Kitt's Creek, near Truro, after having given a trial to a section at Moppa Springs. At Truro he lived in the one house 54 years. Mr. Baird belonged to a long-lived family. His twin brother died last year, aged 89; his elder sister, Mrs. Duell, died at Burra, aged 91; and another sister, Mrs. Brock, who has reached 88 years, still lives in Adelaide. He was married three times, and his third wife predeceased him five years. He leaves three sons and four daughters, and also many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and one child of the fifth generation. Throughout his illness he was attended by the Very Rev. Father Williams, and he died a holy and edifying death. His remains were interred in the St. John's Cemetery on Tuesday, 6th inst. Rev. Father Williams officiated at the graveside.—R.I.P.

BAIRD, Isabella 1822 - 13 March 1921
Married BROCK Mrs. Brock died at her home Rose-street, Prospect, on Sunday. She came to South Australia in 1837 in the ship Navarino. Mrs. Brock— her maiden name was Isabella Baird — was born in Kinross, Scotland. Her people first settled in Adelaide. One of her brothers cut down the first tree felled in Hindley-street. She recalled the burning of Mr. J. Hurtle Fisher's house — a reed hut— one hot summer's day. Colonel Light lost all has papers on that occasion. Mrs. Brock's father subsequently rented Beaumont, Sir Samuel Davenport's place. After her marriage in 1843 she went to a farm about 15 miles beyond Gawler, and remained there for 40 years. There was no Tanunda then, and only a few people lived in Angaston. Mrs. Brock came of stock remarkable for longevity. One of her brothers lived to be 85. and another 91. A son who died in 1917 in Boulder, Western Australia, was 72. During the war Mrs. Brock spent her spare time knitting socks for the men at the front. She was proud of the fact that she never had an illness severe enough to cause her to call in a doctor until she was 93. She had eleven children. Her husband, Mr. J. Brock, predeceased her.

GREIG, William 1831 - 14 November 1919 at Hindmarsh, SA
Mr. William Greig, of Orsmond-street, Hindmarsh, who is a South Australian pioneer of 1837, will be 90 years old today. Notwithstanding the many hardships which he endured, in common with other settlers, in the early days, he has attained that great age in remarkably good health. Mr. Greigs hearing is a little indistinct, but he is active enough to potter about in the garden, and to get exercise at the wood heap. His memory of happenings many years ago is still good, and he is able to read the newspaper without the aid of glasses. Mr. Greig was born in Fifeshire, and arrived at Holdfast Bay in the Navarino, in January, 1837. There were eight in the family, and his father, Mr. James Greig, took up his residence in one of the temporary dwellings erected for first colonists in what was known as Immigration-square. After Colonel Light had surveyed the town acres Mr. Greig's father purchased a piece of land in Currie-street, near Light-square, but afterwards he removed to Walkerviile, close to the Torrens. When the Burra mine was opened Mr. William Greig drove a bullock team with ore to Port Adelaide, the cartage rate being £3 a ton. He joined in the rush to the Victorian diggings in 1851, and netted £200. On his return he took up land on the Waterloo Plain, and purchased a bullock dray for £40. Subsequently he lived at Angas Park for some years. Mr. Greig married Miss Julia Grace, in 1838, and has been a widower for about 40 years. He has resided at Hindmarsh for the last 18 years. The members or his family are Messrs. James and William Greig, of Broken Hill; Oliver Grieg, Norwood; and Thomas Greig, New Zealand; Mesdames A. Gíastonbury, Hindmarsh; J. Ayton, Mount Barker; and R. Waden, Virginia; 22 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
The Advertiser Saturday 01 December 1917 page 9
Mr. William Greig, who arrived in South Australia with his parents in the ship Navarino in 1837, died at his daughter's residence Hindmarsh on November 14. Had Mr. Greig survived until December he would have completed his 93rd year. He was a powerfully-built man, and possessed a good, sound constitution. He was active until a few days before his death. In early life he was well- known as an expert among cattle, horses, and sheep, and was noted for his splendid horsemanship on the various stations. Later he owned and worked successfully a considerable sized farm at Hamilton, beyond Kapunda. On relinquishing farming he took no his residence at Nuriootpa, where Mrs. Grieg died. About 20 years, ago he came to Hindmarsh to reside with his daughter. Mr. Grieg had a good memory, and for hours could entertain visitors by rehearsing the many interesting incidents of his early life. The late William Couthard, of Nuriootpa, who perished from thirst in the north when on an exploring expedition in the middle fifties, married Mr. Grieg's sister. Three daughters survive (Mrs. Glasftenbury. Hindmarsh. Mrs. Ayton, Magill-road, and Mrs. Waden, Millbrook). There are four sods (Messrs. James and William Grieg, Broken Hill, Oliver Grieg, Semaphore, and Thomas Grieg. New Zealand). There are a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mrs. John Brock, only surviving sister of Mr. Grieg, is still living at Prospect. She is about four years older than he was, and she also arrived by the Navarino.

Mr. Hannan being at the same time ill (but not seriously) with bronchitis, but he died on Saturday, only about twenty-four hours after his wife. Their ages were seventy and seventy-four respectively. They have been married fifty years, and leave five sons, two daughters, and twenty-six grandchildren. The funeral was one of the largest that has taken place in the district, friends having come a very great distance to attend.

They arrived in the colony in the year 1837 by the ship Navarino, and lived at Adelaide, Magill, and Gawler Plains. In 1852 Mr. Hannan bought land at Marrabel, and farmed it for twenty-six years. He then sold out, and with his family has lived in the Hundred of Pirie for the last six years."

AN OLD COLONIST.—We have been called upon by Mr Thomas Andrew Hannan, now resident in Port Augusta, who is a very old colonist indeed, and who, now that the early days are brought into prominence again, desires to state his recollections and experiences. He arrived in Holdfast Bay in 1837 in the Navarino, being then the tender age of one year. His people became possessed of a 5 acre holding at Magill, for small blocks were more in vogue then than now, when the " workingmen's block" has a 20 acre limit. Thence Mr Hannan's family went to Onkaparinga and kept a dairy farm, sending in produce to Adelaide on a sledge drawn by two bullocks, and on Saturday it was the young colonist's duty to ride into the city on horseback with perhaps 301b. of butter before him. The Hannans next removed to Gawler Plains, where they took up an 80 acre block on Smith's Creek, now Smithfield, and subsequently sold it to Mr Smith and removed to Marrable, north of Kapnnda. Mr T. A. Hannan, however, appears to have been Bouiewhat of a rolling stone, for in addition to shepherding and boundary riding in the North in the early days of its pastoral occupation, be was an overland traveller to Victoria, N.S. Wales, and Queensland, and back again to South Australia, a full quarter century ago. As before stated, be is now living in Port Augusta, and being unable to attend the Colonists' conversazione, he adopted expedient of asking us to publish his few reminiscences.

The very first wheat grown in S. A., without a shadow of doubt, was grown by the late Donald McLean in 1888. Mr McLean who was a relative of the late Hon. Allan McLean, a former Premier of Victoria, hailed from Argyle shire, and left Gravesend with his wife and family of ten in August 6th, 1837, landing by the ‘‘Navarino” at Holdfast Bay on December 6th. At that time there were no houses in Adelaide, and the Governor was living in a reed hut on the banks of the River Torrens. Equipped with a fair amount of capital he quickly sized up the conditions, and sent two sons to Tasmania, who were then 22 and 24 years of age, providing them with £3OO to purchase seed wheat, which, at that time, was only procurable in Van Pieman's Land, two teams of bullocks, horses and drays and other necessaries—which by the way, included a cat for his wife. A land order entitled Mr McLean to select land, but as the surveying had not been done, it was necessary to wait till June 6th, 1838, the date of the first land meeting in S. A. for selecting blocks around Adelaide. Thirty applicants attended and Mr McLean selected section No. 50, one and half miles from the G. P. 0., now know as the suburb of Marleston, better known as Hilton. The two eldest sons, Allan and John, started cultivating operations at once with a plow brought from the Old Country. Twenty acres of cleared land was fenced and putin seed, a good crop being hand reaped towards the end of 1838. The records in the Government office substantiate the claim that no wheat was grown in S. A. before 1838, but the first was the 20 acres by M r McLean. In 1839.120 acres recultivated and 816 acres in 1840. It is also recorded in the Government office that Mr McLean was granted this land on June 6th. 1830. It is believed that the first wheat was ground into meal and eaten after the manner of oaten cake or bannnocks, which was a common Scotch fare in those days. A few years ago, a Mr Callaty of Mount Barker, an old pioneer, claimed to have eaten bread made from the first wheat grown by the McLeans', and a Mr W. Greig, a shipmate of the McLeans', testified that he saw the wheat put in and that no other wheat was grown in S.A. in that year. The remains of the homestead still stand near Hilton. The land was sold later to Mr John Marie's father. Farther evidence was given by a very early pioneer who held land near the McLeans', in which it is recorded in a book, that Mr McLean was the first wheat grower in the State. Later on, Mr McLean pur chased a large area of land at Strathalbyn adjoining the town ship, and other blocks along the Angas and Bremmer rivers. The old homestead of Mr McLean was situated close to Strathalbyn, a solid two-storey house which still stands.

Mr. Donald McLean came from Argyllshire, Scotland, arriving in South Australia in 1837 by the ship Navarino, with his wife, five sons, and five daughters. There were no horses in South Australia then, and Governor Hindmarsh was living in a reed hut on the banks of the Torrens. Soon after landing Mr. McLean sent one of his sons to Tasmania for bullocks, horses, drays, and seed wheat. Mr. McLean brought with him a land order for 80 acres of land near. Adelaide, but as the land had not been surveyed he had to wait until June 6, 1838, when an 80-acre section was allotted to him near Hilton. Twenty acres were soon under wheat, the first crop of that cereal in the State, and a good harvest was reaped by hand. A number of old pioneers have testified that this statement is correct. Mr. McLean died in his 85th year, and his two sons, Alan and John, who did the first cropping, both lived to about 90 years.
Northern Argus Friday 03 August 1928 page 6
Sir—In your issue of Saturday last appears a letter from " T. R. Haldane," appealing to the public for assistance to Mr. Allen McLean, and stating that he (A. McLean) was the first ploughman who turned the first sod in South Australia, There are a few mistakes in Mr. Haldane's letter which I wish to correct. Mr. Donald McLean and family, consisting of himself and wife, five sons and five daughters, arrived in the colony per ship Navarino, and landed at Holdfast Bay in the month of December, 1837. Mr. D. McLean having purchased an 80 acre section (in London) found on arrival here that he could not select his land until after the preliminary land-order holders had selected theirs, which they did in the month of April, 1833. Before that time no country land was occupied; therefore no ploughing bad been done, except two or three little patches about the town, viz., one patch on the Torrens near what was Buffalo Row, which was growing with paddy, and also a patch in North Adelaide, known as Hack's Garden, sown with wheat, and a patch sown with barley near South terrace belonging to the South Australian Company; so that Mr. A, McLean's claim as to being the first ploughman who turned the first sod in South Australia is not correct. Before Mr. D. McLean selected the land Mr. A. McLean went to Tasmania and brought a few working bullocks, which they worked about town and on the Bay and Port roads. Mr. D. McLean elected a first-class agricultural section adjoining the late Dr. Everard's land, and not at the Reedbeds, where he lived for some time, when h« and his family moved to Strathalbyn, where a number of the family married and settled on land of their own, and were considered to be well-to-do farmers. I am sorry to think that A. McLean, after having reared a family of eleven children, is so poor in circumstances as to be obliged to ask the public for assistance. Surely some of his children are able to support their parent, or in they all so destitute of tilial affection for their father that they will not ? If they will cot assist willingly the law ought to compel them. I am, Sir, &c. ROBERT RANKIISE, Stockport, December 12.

"Scotty,"' the late Mr. Donald McLean, claimed to have grown the first wheat in South Australia, on land about one and a half miles from the General Post Office. He arrived in the State by the ship Navarino in 1837, and soon afterward obtained land from the Government. According to Foster's ''South Australia Its Progress and Prosperity," in that year not a single acre had been sown with wheat, but in the following year 20 acres were under crop. In 1839 the urea was increased to 120 acres, and the next season 810 acres were sown. About this time the colonists began to obtain more extensive possession of the country sections, and agricultural operations proceeded in an increasing ratio. In 1841 the quantity of land under wheat was 4,723 acres, and in the ensuing year 15,281 acres were devoted to this cereal. Referring to the year 1842 Dr. Cotter says, "Last year the colony raised almost the whole of the grain required for consumption by its population, and in this, through the bounty of Providence, not only stall we be totally independent of foreign supply, but we shall likewise be able, in some measure;-to diminish the scarcity likely to arise in New South Wales and Van Dieman's Land (Tasmania) from the failure of their crops." The business of exportation began in 18422, as had been expected by Dr. cotter, and those colonies which had been sending to South Australian flour at 100 a ton, became largely dependent upon her for the same article, which she was able to supply at one tenth the price pad to them.

Evening Journal Monday 08 September 1890 page 2
Sir— the date of my arrival in South Australia was December, 1837—I am not sure of the day ; but at all events, on consideration, it was in that month. The ship I came by was the Navarino. It was the third ship, the first being the Buffalo, the second the Coromandel, and the third the Navarino. I landed at Holdfast Bay with my parents, five sisters and four brothers, twelve in all, belonging to the one family. Finding no cattle, save a few sheep, I proceeded by the same vessel to Tasmania for cattle or horses to work our section (80 acres), which my father bought in London. Having procured bullocks in Tasmania I returned in February, 1838, and took up our section. The situation in where Goodwood now stands, close to John Everard's. Some years afterwards this land was cut op into blocks, ten pieces, every one of the family getting a portion. This was after Donald McLean's death, some thirty years ago. I did not commence to plough until April, 1838, so my former statement was incorrect, being one year out of my reckoning. Still there were no ploughed lands in the colony at this time, and not either until my plough struck on the first land and turned the first sod. Mr. Sexton can say what he likes about his pioneer plough and ploughman, but the plough of John Martin sever struck out until long after I brought the plough out with me, a heavy cumbious article, not one that went on wheels, but had to go on its shares, and hard work it if as to hold it. I took off my first crop in December, 1838, which realized 21a. a bushel. I did lots of ploughing afterwards on piecework at £5 an acre, my first job for wages being for Mr. Leigh, at the Sturt. The seed I brought with me from Tasmania, costing me 3s. a bushel. I adhere to my first statement about the plough— that my plough turned the first sod, and the plough was held by myself, and drawn by my bullocks. As to Mr. Sexton's remarks about the girls, it's perfectly true. They did what they could, drew the water themselves from the river, filled the barrel, and pulled the barrel on a sledge up to the camp where the gaol now stands; the motive power being them selves. Mr. Sexton may have been amused at the picture, of seeing fine Highland girls working hard for their old father. Still we got on, sold our land, and went Strathalbyn soon after we all got separated, some going, that way and some the other way. My father being dead, I, being the eldest, came into possession. I remained in Strathalbyn for nearly forty years, raising a family of four sons and seven daughters, all alive. Now I am old, nearly 80 years of age, I have lost almost everything, in a worldly sense, through a succession of bad years. I maintain that I turned the first sod, and my plough did it— I am, Sir &c, : ALLAN McLEAN.
The South Australian Register Wednesday 11 January 1888 page 7
Mr. Allan McLean, now nearly 80 years of age, commenced ploughing in April or May 1837, having brought the first plough into the colony. Between January and April of the same year he went to Tasmania for bullocks to work the plough. When I asked a recent question, I had then in my mind what Mr. McLean had told me. Mr. McLean maintains he has the claim, and no one can say no. He brought the first plough here, and therefore has the claim. Many old colonists can prove it if they like.' I thank your numerous correspondents for their answers, but none of them can beat the first ploughman— viz , the pioneer ploughman —Allan McLean. This is Mr. P. R. Haldane's version. Now, Sir, I will give mine, and to commence I give a most emphatic No to the above. In the first place, it is stated that Mr. McLean commenced ploughing in April or May, 1837, which is an impossibility, as the McLean family, of which Mr. Allan was a member, did not arrive in South Australia until sometime in December of the same year, as immigrants per ship Navarino, and it is equally impossible that he could have gone to Tasmania between January and April of the same year to purchase bullocks to work the plough. As regards bringing the first plough that assertion is equally erratic. The first plough was brought in the barque Hartley, Captain Thomas Fewson, which arrived at Holdfast Bay on October 20, 1837, the owner of the plough being Mr. John Watson, a Northumbrian, who was a passenger, and I also was a passenger by the same vessel, and was one who assisted to carry or drag this pioneer plough over the sandhills after it was landed from the ship on the beach. And as in all probability some of my fellow passengers are still living, they will remember this redoubtable plough, as it was a most conspicuous ornament on board, being lashed to the starboard side of the quarterdeck ; and many a joke was cracked about the wonderful work it was destined to do in turning the land in South Australia upside down. Then, as to Mr. McLean being the pioneer ploughman. Such an assertion is misleading, as the first land turned up was in North Adelaide, in what was then known as Hack's Garden, also a small piece piece of land on South-terrace, and that by the pioneer ploughman, John Watson. It is an absolute absurdity for Mr. McLean to say he commenced to plough on his country land so early, as there was very great delay in getting the country sections surveyed, so much so that the then Colonial Commissioner (the late Sir James Hurtle Fisher) chartered the brig Lord Hobart, Captain Henry Hawson. with Mr. Birdseye as supercargo, to go to Timor for a cargo of ponies, with the intention of having what was to be termed a ' running survey;' but, unfortunately, through rough weather in returning, most of them were lost, only some thing less than a dozen being landed, hence another cause of delay. The only lands surveyed for some considerable time were the town acres and the preliminary sections contiguous to Adelaide, and these were taken up by the South Australian Company and other gentlemen acting as agents for English speculators. To each preliminary section a town acre was given in ; hence so much city property in the hands of absentee capitalists. So, Sir, I think I have proved beyond doubt that Mr. McLean did not bring out the first plough, neither was he the pioneer ploughman. So well do I remember, the McLean family just after their arrival in South Australia that it was a source of amusement to some of us— then young sparks— to watch the female portion of the family yoked together, pulling behind them a large cask, going to the Torrens for water and returning with their load— they were good pullers, stanch to the collar— to Immigration-square, where a number of wooden huts had been erected with ship-fittings for the accommodation of the newly arrived immigrants, on the South Park Lands, in a line with North-terrace. This was in the latter end of December, 1837, and the beginning of January 1838. In conclusion I beg to state that if Mr. P. R. Haldane has derived his information through dictation from Mr. Allan McLean, the inference is that on account of his weight of years his memory must be much impaired. As to myself, although I am on the shady side of threescore and ten my retention of memory as to many events that occurred in the very early days is as fresh as though they had occurred only a few months previously. : I am, Sir, &c, W. B. SEXTON. Kanmantoo, January 3.

He remained there only a short time before removing to Angas Bank, Strathalbyn, where he successfully opened up a huge tract of country, deceiving a remunerative offer from the late Mr. John Stark for the property, he sold, and took up the land at Angus Bank upon which he resided until his death. The deceased gentleman was a grand type of a Highlander. He hailed from -Lochaber, and never forgot his mother tongue (Gaelic). A stanch Presbyterian, he attended the church service regularly until within a year or so ago when his hearing failed him. He has left a widow (his second wife), three sons, and seven daughters.

She came out here as a member of the McLean family, in the Navarino, in the year named, and married the late Mr. Jeffrey Jeffreys, of Belvidere. She left four children—Mr. Edwin Jeffreys (New South Wales), Mrs. Henry Lewis (Semaphore), Mrs. John Tassie (Glenelg), and Mrs. George Borrett (Langhorne's Creek). There are 11 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
On Friday night one of South Australia's earliest colonists, in the person of Mrs Ann Jeffeys, passed away at Strathalbyn at the age of 88 years. Deceased was a member of the McLean family, who arrived at Holdfast Bay by the sailing ship Navarino, in 1837, and took up land adjoining the late Dr. Everard's estate, close to Adelaide. It was here the deceased met and married her first husband, Mr. R. Leslie. The couple immediately came to Strathalbyn, where the late Mr. Leslie carried on his business as a blacksmith until his death. He was the first man to be buried in Strathalbyn. Mrs. Leslie let the business to Mr. Jeffreys, and eventually married him. On the breaking out of the diggings the couple went to Victoria, and were very successful. They returned to South Australia, and in 1853 bought some 1,400 acres of land, then known as The Plains. They then paid a protracted-visit to the old land. On their return they built the Belvidere Hotel, but only remained in it for 12 months, letting the properly there-after. They farmed successfully until 1881, when Mr. Jeffreys died. The widow then came to reside Strathalbyn, having purchased a two-acre block, and erected a commodious dwelling thereon. It was here Mrs. Jeffreys died. The deceased was a great philanthropist, and of her it may be truly said, "her right band did not know what the left band gave away." She was a genial and bonny Scotch woman, beloved by all who came in contact with her, and was ever fond of giving her experiences of the early days the south, especially when the blacks were numerous and tribal fights of no un-common occurrence. Only one of the old stock is now alive, a sister, Mrs. Johns, who resides at Geelong. Mrs. Jeffreys, left three daughters—Mrs. H. Lewis, of Semaphore; Mrs. J. Taffey, of Glenelg; Mrs. Barrett, of Langhorne's Creek; and one son—Mr. E. Jeffreys, of Mauilla

McLEAN, Hugh 1836 - 1921
The death of Mr. HughMcLean, which took place suddenly on Sunday last, removes from our midst the last of the pioneers of the district, and takes from our little community one of its most interesting personalities. Mr. McLean arrived in South Australia in the latter part of 1836, with his parents and uncles, he then being about four years of age. With the Rankine family the McLeans came to this district, pioneering the settlement here, and ever since that far back day he continued to reside in the place, all the rest of the family having scattered abroad. His father made his home where Mr. F. W. Allison low resides the two-story building he built in later years being for a lone time the most pretentious structure in the district, and in this spot young McLean and his brothers and sisters grew up to maturity. When the exodus to the North set in early in the seventies the McLeans dispersed, and the farms on the Milang road and the Meadowbank Estate, where old Allan McLean ruled, passed into other hands. Mr. Hugh McLean, however, stuck to the old town, and through all the changing years lived a quiet life here, if a hard working one for most of the time. Some little while ago he met with an accident by which a broken arm was caused but though of very advanced age he made a capital recovery and appeared good for many years' life yet. He was about as usual on Sunday, but was taken ill suddenly, and died almost immediately, heart failure following his attack. His remains were laid to rest in the Strathabyn cemetery on Tuesday, the Rev. G. C. Love conducting the service at the grave in the presence of a numerous following of old friends and mourners. The late Mr. McLean leaves a family of four sons and two daughters. His age was about 89 years.

LITTLE-KNOWN ADELAIDE Old-World Cottages IN Gray street there are some old-world cottages which are not only nearly a 100 years old, but have been in the possession of the same family— the Mullanys—ever since they were built by James Mullany about 1837. The present owners are Miss Kate Mullany and her sister, Mrs. P. O'Connor, who live in a house—only 64 years old—next to them. The cottages might well be in an old country town, for there is about 50 ft. of land between Gray street and their front door. The larger one, shown in the photograph, is of five rooms, and was built by Mr. Mullany as a home for his family. He came from Ireland by the Navarino in 1837, and spent his first Christmas on the banks of the Torrens in a tent. Mrs. Mullany was mixing a Christmas pudding when the tent blew to the other side of the stream. Mr. Mullany brought money to the province, and bought a good deal of land in Gray street and the neighborhood, which at that time was the most populous part of Adelaide. Until 30 or 40 years ago, the frontage of these cottages was a court yard, as there were two two-roomed cottages running at right angles between them and the roadway- The cottages both had shingle roofs originally. When Miss Mullany was in Ireland some years ago, she noticed cottages identical with those her father built cottages running at right angles between them and the roadway- The cottages both had shingle roofs originally.

NEWENHAM, Charles Burton 25 June 1794 - December 1887 at Som. Bath, England
THE LATE MR. C. B. NEWENHAM. Mr. Charles Burton Newenham, news of whose death at Bath at the very advanced age of between 93 and 94 has been received by his grandson, Mr. C. B. Hardy, was essentially one of the pioneers of South Australia, and as such some details of his career will no doubt be of interest to our readers. Mr. Newenham, who was born in Dublin on June 25, 1794, married a Miss Darley, and for some years after his marriage occupied a post under the Imperial Government in connection with the Pigeon-house Fort, near Dublin. Being of a very energetic and enterprising nature, the young colony of South Australia, then in its infancy, tempted him to emigrate to Adelaide, and he arrived here with a family of three sons and four daughters by the ship Navarino in December, 1837, and shortly after his arrival he was appointed Auditor-General of the province. Reaching Adelaide from Glenelg by the then most usual form of conveyance, a bullock-dray, Mr. Newenham and his family took up their abode for a time in a tent until he had completed the erection (most of the work being done with his own hands) of a wooden cottage, which with its vine-covered roof was for many years afterwards a well-known landmark on the corner acre where now stand the Adelaide Club and the Bank of New South Wales. After living a few years here Mr. Newenham moved to land he had purchased at Mitcham, and built the residence known as Springfield, where he resided until he retired in 1854, and went to England. He continued to occupy the position of Auditor General until he succeeded Mr. Smart, the first Sheriff, in that office, which position he occupied until 1854. His daughters all married in the colonies, the eldest marrying Sir Charles Cooper, the first Chief Justice of South Australia; another, Mr. James Henderson, formerly of Adelaide, and at one time well known here as a member of the firm of Hamilton & Henderson; another the late Mr. Alfred Hardy; and another the late Canon Irwin, of Tasmania. When the late Sir Charles Cooper retired and went to Eng land he and Lady Cooper and Mr. and Mrs. Newenham resided together at Cheltenham, and afterwards at Bath, where Mrs. Newenham died about five or six years ago and Sir Charles Cooper quite recently; and in connection with Mr. Newenham's extreme old age it is interesting to note that his son in-law Sir C. Cooper reached the great age of 92, and at the time of his death there were still living a brother of Mr. Newenham aged over 90 and a brother of Sir Charles Cooper, also aged over 90, the aggregate ages of the four men reaching the extraordinary figure of nearly 370 years.
Adelaide Observer 03 December 187 page 30
Our cables announce the death of Mr. Chas. Burton Newenham, the first sheriff of the Supreme Court of this colony. The deceased gentleman was born on June 25, 1794, at Dublin. He married Miss Darley, and was employed under the Imperial Government at the Pigeon House Fort, near Dublin, until 1837, when be came to Adelaide in the ship Navarino, which arrived on December 6 of that year. He was the first Auditor - General, and after a few years became sheriff of South Australia, which position he occupied until 1854, when he retired and went to England. Mr. Newenham Jived while in South Australia at Springfield, Upper Mitcham, the present residence of his grandson, Mr. 0. B, Hardy. His four daughters were married in Australia one to the late Sit Charles Cooper, one to the late Mr. Alfred Hardy, one to Mr. James Henderson; formerly of Adelaide, and the other to the late Canon Irwin, of Tasmania; and he leaves a large number of grand children and great-grandchildren, many of them in Adelaide. Alter the late Sir Charles Cooper went to England in 1864 Mr. and Mrs, Newenham and Sir Charles and Lady Cooper resided together for many years at Cheltenham and Bath, chiefly at Bath, where he died, Mrs. Newenham having predeceased him.

NEWENHAM, Mary Louisa Died 17 November 1906 in Bath, Som, England
News was received by the English mail which arrived on Saturday of the death at Bath, in her 90th year, of Lady Cooper widow of Sir Charles Cooper. Lady Cooper's father, Mr. Newenham, and his family came to South Australia in the Navarino in December, 1837. He was for a time auditor-general and afterwards Sheriff and lived at Springfield; Mitcham. Lady Cooper was one of four daughters, the others being Mrs. Alfred Hardy, (Woodville); Mrs. James Henderson, aged 83, (living at Truro, in Cornwall, but formerly living at Netherby, near Mitcham, (South Australia); and Mrs. Irwin, of Tasmania, who died some years ago. Sir Charles Cooper, after his marriage, lived at Whitmore-square, Adelaide, until his retirement in 1859, when he and his wife went to England, and resided for a time at Cheltenham, and for many years at Bath. Coming as she did from a very long-lived family Lady Cooper "retained her powers," both mental and physical, to the last in a wonderful ways and had for years been quite a feature in her own circle at Bath. Sir Charles Cooper himself lived, to be over 90.

The Sydney Morning Herald of the same date than notices the said event;-- " The Sydney Packet left Brisbane a week previous to her final departure from Moreton Island. While lying at the' Bar, the Rev. G.Newenham (Who with Mrs. Newenham was on board for the purpose of coming up to Sydney) died. He had been ill for some time, and intended visiting this port for change of air." The deceased was lately minister of the Missionary District of the Lake River, Tasmania. Our fellow-colonists will sympathize most sincerely with the worthy Sheriff and his family under this afflicting bereavement.

NICHOLLS, Worthy Worthington George 1807 - Died 13 December 1849 at Black Forest, SA
Occupation of Bricklayer, Carrier and Journalist Resided Bowden, Sturt and Adelaide Buried West Terrace Cemetery - no record
An inquest was held yesterday, at the Black Forest, on the body of WorthyWorthington George Nicholls, who destroyed himself, by taking poison, last Thursday.— Mary James, widow, stated that she had been residing with the deceased. She left him the day previous, and went to Mrs Tuckerband's. He followed her there, and asked her to return home with him. She told him she could not. He then went into an adjoining room, and poured something into a glass, and asked her to drink with him. She replied that " he knew she never drank raw spirits." Witness did not know whether he was intoxicated, but he had drunk enough brandy to make him so, and she thought it was brandy be offered her. He then drank the contents of the glass himself, and showed her the bottle, which she knew always contained laudanum. He said, " I have often told you I would die for you, and now you shall see me die." Witnees sent for a German veterinary surgeon. She gave the deceased some salt and water, to make him vomit, and, after; the surgeon came, gave him five or six eggs by his direction. He lived about two hours after he had taken the laudanum. The deceased drank very much of late, but seemed to talk rationally, and as the deceased had drunk about half a wine bottle of brandy that day, the did not think be was sober. The deceased was always more or less deranged when he drank much. The bottle which contained the laudanum was full of it. — Otto de Darsel, veterinary surgeon, Black Forest, stated that, when called in, he found the deceased very bad. He told witness he had taken laudanum, and which witness smelt in his breath. Witness saw the bottle which contained the laudanum. It would contain about an ounce, and there were only about ten drops left in it. Witness rode off for Dr Moyte, who went to the place on witness's horse. When he returned the deceased was dead. When he first saw him he appeared to have been drinking, and after death smelt of spirits.— Dr Nash stated that he had seen the body of the deceased, and had heard the evidence of Mrs James and Mr de Darnel, and was of opinion, the death of the deceased was occasioned by the laudanum he had taken, and that it was accelerated by the quantity of spirits he had previously drunk.— Verdict, "That the deceased being temporarily insane from the effects of intemperance, took a certain quantity of laudanum, the effects of which caused his death." Thus ended the life of a man, who if we do not call him an Infidel, was as wise in his own conceit as the most polished Atheist. He pretended to be a Socialist, and in England as well as here attempted reformatory movements on a large scale. He called his Port cart "The Reformer," and declared that nothing short of a reconstruction of society on the Socialists' principles could redeem it from its manifold injustice and corruption. He denounced all violence and oppression on ' the face of the earth,' yet laboured strenuously (in his small way) to remove the potent restraints, which religion and law impose on those depraved passions to which he yielded up his soul, and which are the undoubted sources of disorder in families and states. No man's errors could be more promptly and plainly refuted by facts than his were. While raving about the reconstruction of Society, his household became disorganized. While romancing about communism and the happiness of the human race, his wife was abused and his children neglected. The sense of his family revolted against the monstrous doctrines he propounded, and he was doomed to encounter in his own home a disrespect more galling to his vanity than the scorn and contempt his atrocious principles provoked out of doors. He scoffed at the idea of communing with his Maker, depending on his own weakness, which, in the infatuation of infidelity, be mistook for strength. He courted errors with avidity which the Christian guards against with fear and trembling; and finally sank beneath disappointments which virtue could not incur. Still, Nicholls had strong reasoning powers, and some good points. That he was charitable there can be no doubt; and that he was laborious without being thrifty and industrious, is pretty clear. But this instability was merely owing to the want of a Christian education. Indeed, his life was a long-continued rebellion against a God of goodness ; and oh ! what an awfully instructive homily on that evil career was the end of the infidel.

Occupation of Labourer
CORONER'S INQUEST. An inquest was held at Mr. Lillyman's brewery, on the 9th March, 1838, before George Stevenson, Esq., Coroner, specially appointed, and a jury of twelve, on the body of EnochPegler, a laborer. The jury proceeded to the spot where the body lay and, having viewed the same, examined the following witnesses:-- John Cavanagh, laborer, sworn—About half past six o'clock this morning as witness was going out to look for Mr. White's cattle he found the body of EnochPegler laying along the path, about thirty yards from the river, on the north side, with his feet towards the river. His shoes were off and laid under his legs. Witness laid his hand on deceased's face and found he was dead ; he then opened his shirt which was slightly torn and saw some blood. That part of his shirt which was clean was doubled over the part which was bloody so as to conceal the blood. The body was quite cold when witness saw it. Witness gave information at the Commissioner's stores. Knew deceased, and saw him last alive yesterday between five and six o'clock p.m.; he was not then sober and was staggering. Deceased was a quiet inoffensive man. There was no appearance of any struggle having taken place. On witness calling to two men who were thatching, several natives on the south side of the river shouted and held up their spears, but not in a threatening position. The natives seemed to have watched witness going to the body. Drs. Cotter, Woodforde and Gill having been directed by the coroner to inspect the body, were next examined. Dr. Cotter—Have seen the body and assisted at the opening and examination ordered. Found a wound in the integuments just above the left clavicle, extending obliquely downwards and backwards into the chest piercing the pericardium and entering the left side of the heart. There were two punctures in the heart evidently made by the same instrument. The second appeared to have been produced by the partial withdrawal of the instrument from the substance of the heart, and its reinsertion about a quarter of an inch from the first wound. There were no other injuries; there evidently had been no struggle, because from the nature of the first wound death must have been instantaneous. By the Jury—The wound must have been made by a round sharp-pointed instrument. Charles Woodforde, Esq., surgeon—Was present and assisted at the examination of the body, and corroborates the statement of Mr. Cotter. Considers that the second wound might have been produced by the sudden collapsing of the heart caused by the first thrust. Daniel Gill, Esq., surgeon—Was present at the examination of the body of deceased and assents to the depositions of Drs. Woodforde and Cotter. The inquest was then adjourned to the follow ing day, at the Court House. SATURDAY, MARCH 10. The inquest was resumed at ten o'clock. William Williams—Received information at the Commissioner's store that a man had been found dead on the other side of the river. Witness enquired of several natives and was informed than two natives named William and George had committed the murder. The witness here produced two instruments, one of wood and another of Kangaroo bone, in use amongst the natives, and with one of which the death it was supposed had been occasioned Onkaparingo Jack, a native, was next examined, James Cronk and William Williams being sworn as intepreters—Witness did not know of the death of the man until the next morning when a native boy informed him that a white man had been killed by two natives, and that he saw two men with the deceased but did not know they were killing him. The boy saw the deceased drunk and afterwards lying on the ground asleep with two natives near him. Frederick William Allen—Was on the road on Thursday night about ten o'clock towards the iron store and saw seven natives with spears in their hands. There were about forty natives in all and they appeared as if hostilely inclined. The body was not then on the footpath. James Cronk, assistant to the Protector of the Aborigines—On hearing that a man had been killed witness went in pursuit of the men who were suspected accompanied by several natives who volunteered their services. Previously to going witness found that the deceased had been stabbed while laying asleep drunk; that he had been murdered because four of the natives' dogs had been killed by the white people. A native boy made the same statement to witness which he had previously done to Onkaparingo Jack. Witness promised the boy ten loaves when he pointed out the two men. The inquest was then adjourned to Monday. MONDAY, MARCH 12. The inquest was resumed at twelve o'clock. James Cronk—Had since ascertained from the boy that the deceased was present at a corroborrie that evening, and was told to go away when it was over; that the deceased wanted to sit down among the natives between a man and a woman, and they told him again to go away; that he went a short distance and lay down; that he saw the men attempt to take the deceased's shirt. The Coroner briefly addressed the Jury, who having retired returned the following verdict— That the deceased, EnochPegler, has been wilfully murdered by a native or natives unknown.

QUINN, James 1819 - 30 December 1897 at Glen Osmond, SA
Born Newry, Ireland Occuption of Tailor and Brickmaker Resided Adelaide, Hindmarsh and Glen Osmond Buried Glen Osmond St Saviours Cemetery, SA
On Thusday evening Mr. James Quinn, seventy nine years of age, one of the pioneers of South Australia, died suddenly from heat apoplexy at his residence, Beaconsfield-street, Thebarton Estate. The deceased gentleman came from Glasgow, and with his wife arrived in the colony by tho Navarino in 1837 on the first of the two voyages the vessel made to Adelaide. A blacksmith by trade, be at first had to accept any occupation which presented itself, and amongst other things he assisted in clearing and grubbing the streets that now form our fair city. The tidings of tho extensive ;old finds in Victoria induced him to try his luck at Bendigo, whore he met with much success, and subsequently returning to South Australia he settled down as a farmer at Ellerslie, Woodside, and bought a sheep and cattle run at Yankalilla. A store in tho city was next tried, but this not proving sufficiently remunerative he relinquished it, and has for more than half a century resided in Glen Osmond and neighbourhood, where he owned for wine years 5 acres forming tho familiar point near the ' big tree,' at the junction of the Kensington and Glen Osmond roads. His penchant for goldmining induced him to visit Mount Browne and Teetulpa Diggings, at the latter of which he contracted typhoid Fever which incapacitated him for further work. The remains of Mr. Quinn wore interred in the Glen Osmond Cemetery on Saturday. He has left a widow, three sons, James Greer, John, and Thomas; five daughters, Mesdames MacDonald, Strickland, White, Humphreys, and Jackett, and twenty-six grandchildren.

RAINS, Sarah nee PERKINS MATRIMONIAL CAUSES AND DESERTION. - William Rains answered to an information laid by his wife, SarahRains, charging him with deserting her, and not leaving her with the means of subsistence. In reply to several questions by Mr. Beddome, the complainant stated that she had been married to the defendant 27 years, and that she had ceased to live with him because he had taken up with another woman. By defendant - She stated that she had not her marriage certificate, but, nevertheless, had been lawfully married to the defendant. She was not too fond of half-and- half, nor was she expensive in her dress. She asked defendant for 300/. to enable her to go to England. Defendant-"A large sum for a working man with a family," Complainant, with emphasis - "You a working man, and keeping a woman with three children!" Defendant offered her 100/. to help her to start in business. The defendant remarked that the present information would not have been laid but for jealousy on the part of his wife; that he could not look at or speak to a girl, without the circumstance being thrown in his teeth. Examination continued - Defendant had thirteen children - nine of his own and three of the woman's. The Magistrate enquired if the lady was willing to go back to her husband, to which enquiry she returned a decisive negative, and Mr. Rains being asked the same question, replied, "I'd rather not." The defendant then made a statement complaining of the moral conduct of his wife, and recounting a number of the delinquencies of his better half, at the same time stating that he was willing to allow her such a maintenance as his circumstances would afford. An order was made for the payment of 15s. a week.

RANKINE, Robert, Isabella GARDNER
RANKINE, Robert 1811 - 11 March 1896 at Stockport, SA
MR. ROBERTRANKINE'S FARM, MOUNT CRAWFORD. Buried Stockport Cemetery Mount Crawford is a little over thirty miles from Adelaide, by way of the Chain of Ponds, but since the railway has been made a Gawley the direct road to town is very little used, nearly the whole at Gawler. Until within the last two or three years, Mount Crawford was visited by few people, except those looking for stray cattle, and horsemen or drays proceeding from Gumeracha, Woodside, or Mount Barker on their way northward. On account of the last few dry seasons having caused a poor return on the farms on the plains and in the north, there has been a great demand for the land about Mount Pleasant and the South Rhine. The produce from these districts is now in many instances taken to Gawler, instead of direct to Adelaide; and as the road goes near to Mount Crawford, the neighbourhood, instead of being, as formerly, one of the most secluded and quiet in the settled districts of the colony, now resounds with the crack of the bullock-whip and the rattle of the German wagon. The hospitality of Mount Crawford is well known to all grades and shades of country settlers, there being few accustomed to travelling or knocking about in that neighbourhood who have not received a hearty welcome and a shake down. The station having been formed by the present owner in the early days of the colony, when houses were not as plentiful as they are now, scarcely a night passed away without visitors. Even at the present time there is no public house nearer than Williamstown or Mount Pleasant, and the callers are by no means few nor far between. I cannot positively state what number of feet Mount Crawford is above the level of the sea, but judging from the quantity of rain and the lateness of the seasons, I should imagine it to be one of the highest spots in the colony. At all events, when the plains are parched and dried up soon after the commencement of the summer, the feed is just beginning to be at its best in this neighbourhood. Mr. Rankine's farm contains 1,000 acres, all fenced in; the earlier fences were made of posts and four rails. Subsequently three rails were used instead of four, and latterly rails have not been used at all. but the fences made of posts and four wires. There are generally about 210 acres in crop ; last year there were 165 acres wheat and oats and 60 acres hay. The system pursued is a eight years course :— First year, wheat; second, wheat; third, oats; fourth, hay: fifth, sixth, and seventh, grass; eighth, fallow, fed up to the time of ploughing. The corn being all reaped by hand (last year at a cost of 14s. per acre and rations), it is found profitable to grow a good quantity of oats instead of wheat, the crop being generally heavier, and the price nearly equal. Last year the average of the wheat was only 121/2 bushels per acre, but the oats produced 32 bushels per acre; and. if I do not mistake, oats have been and are at the present worth more than wheat. The corn is carted from the field and thrashed at once without stacking it. The thrashing-machine is fixed in the barn, the horses working outside; the drum is set at a considerable elevation, with a blast under to drive out the chaff from the corn as it falls through the concave. The corn from which the chaff has been separated falls on to a wide-meshed riddle, which separates the heads from the corn, and a second blast through the riddled corn leaves it nearly fit for market. The heads which are riddled off are carried by elevators on to the feeding-board, when they are again passed through the thrashing-machine. The straw is cleared out by one of the old-fashioned straw shakers— revolving boards with spikes on the ends —which throw out the straw on to a ribbed platform, the greater part of the grain being thereby separated ; still it is not done quite as effectively as could be desired. The straw is then stacked by hand ; but Mr. Rankine intends next year to stack it by means of an endless band worked by a single horse-power, which he will use at other times for cutting chaff; &c. One of the leading and most remunerative parts of the farming at Mount Crawford is the dairy. There are from 30 to 40 cows always in milk, but during the grassy season from 70 to 80 are kept. Until last year the calves were allowed to run with their mothers during the day and penned up at night, the cows being milked once a day— in the morning; but last year a number of the calves were killed, and the cows milked morning and evening. The evening's milk was allowed to stand all night, warmed and mixed with that of the morning for the making of cheese. One cannot have been long in the colony without hearing complaints- in many cases too well founded— as to the poverty of colonial cheese in comparison with that imported from England. I do not mean to assert that the herbage has nothing to do with the matter; but am convinced that if the calves were not allowed to suck the cows at all, the quality of the cheese would be materially improved. I am satisfied, from experience, that the milk generated during the day, and which would be miked at night, is richer in cream than that produced during the night, and obtained from the cow at the morning's meal. A second reason for the difference in the quality of the cheese arises from the fact that nearly every cow, however carefully milked, retains a small portion of the milk for the calf; and as it is a well-known fact that the milk increases in richness from the first drop to the last-the udder of the cow being a sort of milkpan which allows the cream to rise to the top-it naturally follows that the richest milk, the cream in fact, is reserved for the calf. I have known colonial cheese made from cows milked twice a day which good judges have pronounced to be English cheese, and who could hardly be convinced to the contrary. I am therefore strongly of opinion that these two causes have more to do with the matter than the poverty of the natural grasses. How can the natural grass be of poor quality when at one season of the year a beast or sheep will fatten more quickly than on the best English pasture? The whole of the milk is made into cheese except that of Sunday, which is allowed to stand for butter. The milking yard is close to the back kitchen, in which the cheese is made. The cows are milked before breakfast the milk brought in and strained at once into .the cheese-tub. Every convenience for heating milk or water is close at hand, and within a few minutes after the last cow is milked the rennet is added and the curd in process of being formed. The cheese some years since was pressed by means of levers inserted into the body of a tree. The old stump with the mortices still remains, but imported iron lever presses are now invariably used. Mrs. Rankine adheres to her Scotch plan of pressing the cheeses without either scalding the curd or placing the cheese- in hot water; they have, therefore, to be pressed a longer time than with the English system— 10 days being about the usual time-but they remain longer if not dry' at that period. The cheese-room is quite a model; it is kept nearly dark, and the temperature is maintained equably by means of a stove and pipes, which are also continued through the dairy, to keep up the heat of the milk during the winter season. It is scarcely necessary to add that the whole of the utensils, shelves, walls, floors, and everything connected with the dairy are kept scrupulously clean no one need expect to make a good commodity without great attention to this part of the business. The duality of the cheese made at Mount Crawford is so well known that it is rarely necessary to send any to Adelaide, the greater part being consumed in Gawler and its vicinity. a flock of 500 ewes, but he intends to increase them to 700 or 800 if he finds that he can ensure fond enough for the larger number. They are fed during a portion of the day on Government land, brought back tn the farm in the afternoon, and folded at night on the stubble?

The Late Mr. RobertRankine, J.P. —The late Mr, RobertRankine, J.P., who died at Stookport on the 11th inst, was a very old colonist and was well-known in this district, especially in the early days. Mr. Rankine arrived in South Australia in 1836 — just 60 years ago. On arrival he obtained employment with Mr. Fisher the well-known lawyer, and subsequently with the Cattle Company; A little later Mr. Rankine settled at Mount Barker, Mrs. Rankine is said to have been the first white woman who crossed Cox'h Creek. Later on he removed he conducted dairying and farming on a large scale. He made a name for his batter and cheese and furnished the main supply of the Adelaide market at that time, and in order to keep up his reputation made it his study to breed and keep an excellent breed of stock. About thirty years ago he transferred his stock and plant to land he had taken up at Pine Creek, near Linwood where he also established a large dairy. For years after removing to Pine Creek he did much service to the district in the role of a J.P., and in the palmy days of Kapunda, in conjunction with Messrs, H. Kelly and D. Shannon, he adjudicated at the Court there, when, in the absence of any other Court on the west and north of Kapunda nearer than Auburn, a large extent of Court business was necessarily done in that town. After carrying on dairying and farming for a number of years he became connected with the late Mr. William Malcolm and others in establishing an ostrich farm near Gawler, of which he had the active management for a number of years until it merged into the larger concern now carried on by the Ostrich Company near Port Augusta. He was a shrewed observer and a man of sterling character, and was much respected. His second wife died several years ago, and as they had no family he has for years lived a quiet, retired life at Stockport. His first wife was a relative of Mr. David Thomson, of Gawler. The late Mr. Rankine was a well-known identity at the shows of the early days, his services as a judge of cattle being in constant requisition. He was also prominent in District Council work.

Death or Mr David Teakle.— Another pioneer colonist passed away on Monday in the person of Mr. David Teakle, of Mount Barker, who had reached the advanced age of eighty-five years. The deceased (says the Mount Barker Courier) had been fifty-eight years in the colony, having left Gloucestershire in 1837, and come to South Australia in the ship Navarino. He was a cloth weaver by trade, but did not pursue that occupation in the colony. After residing for some time in the neighbourhood of Adelaide he went to Findon and kept a store for ten years, and thence he removed to Noarlunga, where he became a farmer, and continued tilling the soil for about twenty years. Early in the seventies Mr. Teakle came to Mount Barker, where he had since lived a retired life, looking after his landed property, and going in for house building at intervals. Our late townsman was one of the first members of the Baptist Church at Mount Barker, and had been connected with the denomination for thirty years. The deceased leaves a widow (who is seventy-seven years of age, and is at present suffering from illness), and a family of six sons and three daughters — Messrs. John, Robert, and Isaac, of Gulnare South ; Edward, of Noarlunga; George, of Golden Grove; and Thomas, of Yanac-a-yanac, Victoria ; Mrs. Mudge, of Yarcowie ; Mrs Bridgeman. of Yacka ; and Mrs. J. Williams, of Oakbank. In addition there are twenty seven grandchildren and three great-grand-children. The funeral took place at the Mount Barker Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon, when a good number of residents followed the remains to their last resting place. The burial service was conducted by the Rev. Silas Mead, of Adelaide.

MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.—An inquest was held on 20th Dec. on the body MarthaPegler, wife of David Teakle, labourer, in Hindmarsh Town, who was accidentally shot by her brother, Peter Pegler, on the evening of Tuesday. It appeared in evidence that Pegler and a young lad named Harrison were bargaining for the sale of a fowling piece, and, while the former was in the act of raising the cock, it slipped from his fingers, exploded, and the whole contents, a heavy charge of buck shot, entered the back of the unfortunate woman, and went entirely through her body. Every assistance was rendered by Dr. Bright, who was called in, and she survived in great agony till the following morning, when she was released from her sufferings. The Coroner and Jury reprobated very strongly the incautious use of fire arms which this case exhibited ; but as it was clearly proved to have been the result of accident only, the Jury found a verdict of Accidental Death.

Mrs. Margaret Thorpe, who with her late husband, Mr. Thomas Thorpe, was one of South Australia's earliest settlers, died on July 24 at her residence, Kensington, at the age of 92 years. She had been in the state 60 years, and, like most of the early colonists, had had an eventful career. Mrs. Thorpe, whose late husband died about 30 years ago, was born at St. Catherine's, London, on January 31, 1812. She landed at Holdfast Bay from the ship Navarino on December 10, 1837, and could relate many a delightful story about early history and the ups and downs of the colonists who paved the way for later generations. One of her most vivid recollections was her first journey from Glenelg to Adeaide on a bullock dray. The deceased lady had been married nearly three years when she landed in South Australia with her husband and one child. Four sons and three daughters, 39 grandchildren, and a 6 large number of great-grandchildren survive her. Mrs. Thorpe had never gone out of South Australia since she landed. She resided in Queen-street, Kensington, for the last 55 years, and until the last few years enjoyed the best of health. She lived when a child with her grand mother in the Tower of London, and distinctly remembered handling the axe with which Anne Boleyn was beheaded. Adelaide Observer Saturday 01 August 1903 page 32
The fact that so many of our pioneers are still enjoying comparatively good health speaks volumes for the healthiness of Australian bush life. One of the most remarkable of these still living is Mrs. Margaret Thorpe, who has resided for over fifty years at Kensington. Mrs. Thorpe, whose husband, the late Mr. Robert Thorpe, died nearly thirty years ago, was born at St. Catherine's, London, on January 31, 1812. She had been married nearly three years when she landed with her husband and one child at Holdfast Bay, from the ship Navarino, on December 10, 1837. In spite of her eighty-seven years Mrs. Thorpe is still hale and hearty, and finds her chief recreation and delight in her flower garden. "It is a great trouble to me," she remarked to a reporter a few days ago, "that I am not able to look after the flowers as I once did, but I don't know what I should do without my garden." As she made this observation, the old lady was stooping down planting some seedlings in a bed which she had just been digging, and, as one watched her busy fingers and noted her enthusiasm, it seemed incredible that she was almost old enough to remember the Battle of Waterloo, which was fought when she was three and a half years of age. Mrs. Thorpe has the usual story to tell of the hardships and difficulties of pioneer life. When the vessel in which she was a passenger arrived at Glenelg the emigrants were at once sent on shore, and the only accommodation which they could obtain was a snare sail, which was converted into a huge tent, in which the ship's company found shelter for a fortnight. The old lady's memory is exceptionally good, and she has a vivid recollection of the journey from Glenelg to Adelaide on a bullock dray. She was consider ably disappointed when she eventually obtained a glimpse of "this Adelaide I had heard so much about,"for it bore little resemblance to a city in those early days. During the gold rush. Mr. Thorpe left the colony on two occasions to try his fortunes at Bendigo, but Mrs. Thorpe baa never crossed the South Australian border since she landed. After residing for short periods at various places near Adelaide, the family ultimately settled at Kensington. There for over half a century this sturdy old colonist has fought life's battle, and there the expects to spend the remaining years. Mrs. Thorpe has four sons and three daughters living, and is proud of the fact that no fewer than thirty-wine persons are entitled to address her as grandmother. There are also a number of great- grandchildren, but when asked to enumerate them the old lady smilingly shook her head) and remarked that her memory was not equal to that.

Mrs. Mary Ann Vivian, of Cromer, a colonist of over 78 years, whose death occurred recently, arrived in South Australia with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. Wallace, in the Navarino, on December 2, 1837, after a voyage of 95 days. She was baptised by the Rev. O. B. Howard, first colonial chaplain, and married by the Very Rev. Dean Farrell, at Trinity Church, Adelaide. She could relate many interesting anecdotes connected with the life of the pioneers of the province. Mrs Vivian had resided for a considerable number of years in the Mount Pleasant district, and was highly respected. Her vigor remained hardly impaired almost till the last, and to the end she could read without the aid of spectacles. Fits of giddiness seized her at times just before her death, and she had a heavy fall, from the effects of which the old lady never rallied. After a few days' illness she died. Mrs. Vivian left two sons, four daughters, 61 grandchildren, 81 great grandchildren, and three great great grand children. Her husband, Mr. J. P. Vivian, predeceased her by about 25 years.

Rudds Leaving Bridgewater Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Rudd, of Bridgewater, have sold their business (Post office and store) and are going to reside at Glenelg. Mr. Rudd, whose grandfather took up residence in the district a hundred years ago is thereby a descendant of one of the oldest families in the district. His father established the existing business In 1877 and the family have held it ever since that time. Residents of Bridgewater are arranging a social evening in the Bridgewater Institute on Thursday, December 8th to give all their friends an opportunity of saying farewell to Mr. and Mrs. Rudd and their daughters. EARLY MARRIAGE One of the early records of marriages in the 'Register' newspaper is that of James J. Rudd to Jemima Wicks on February 26, 1838. They first lived at Thebarton but soon moved to the old settlement of Cox's Creek where James Rudd followed his occupation of timber splitter until he left for the Victorian diggings in 1861 where he was successful above the average. He returned to his property at Cox's Creek (where the bullock wagon track to Mt. Barker forded the creek) and continued as a splitter and woodcutter till 1869. He died in 1889. James Rudd's son, George, was born at Cox's Creek in October 1849. He worked in Dunn's flourmill for 4 1/2 years, was apprenticed to a carpenter in Adelaide for IS months and returned to his father's property (Section 1136, now occupied by Mr. Andrew Clark) as a market gardener for nine years. He opened the store on the main road in 1877, was appointed post master in 1881 and railway station agent in 1884. He was a member of the Stirling District Council for eight years and chairman in 1909. Mr. William Rudd was born in Bridgewater and followed his father in the business until he sold out this month. His main interest outside the store was the Mt.

SHOOTING WITH INTENT TO MURDER. DANIELWOOLMAN charged with shooting at William Bunge with intent to murder, and also with shooting with intent to do grevious bodily harm, pleaded not guilty. William Bunge sworn, said: I am a German. On the 14th June I was near Mount Gambier a few miles on the other side, when I met the prisoner. We walked together and went to the Border Inn, kept by Mr. Spring. We staid one night there and left at 7 or 8 o'clock the next morning. We were going towards Casterton. I had a gun, and as I had also a very heavy swag the prisoner offered to carry the gun for me, for which I thanked him. He asked me if the gun was loaded, and I said it was not. When I last saw him we were as far as from this court to the opposite fence apart. The prisoner fired the gun and I received a wound in my neck which caused me to fall down. Prisoner then closed upon me and put his hands in my pockets. I laid there about ten minutes. The prisoner having left me I got up and walked to McIntyre's home station. I met a shepherd on the road. The woman at the station dressed my wound. When I came to Casterton had my wounds dressed by a surgeon. To prisoner: you were behind me. I said I was going to the Grange, and you said you would accompany me. Michael Spring, sworn: I keep the Border Inn, 22 miles from, Mount Gambier. Prisoner and the last witness slept in my house on 14th June. They left on Monday morning. To prisoner: the last time I handled the gun it was in the kitchen. The kitchen door was locked. Three of you slept in the same room, the barman with, you. George Drysdale, sworn: I live on the Argyle station. On the 15th June I saw Bunge on the road side. He was wounded in the neck, and blood was running from the wound. There was no one there. I told him the road to my hut, but he took the wrong road and did not find it. It was in the morning. Caleb Radford, sworn : I am a surgeon at Casterton. The witness Bunge called on me on 15th June. He was nearly exhausted, and said he had been shot in the back of the neck. I gave him some stimulants and he recovered. The wound was an inch deep, and appeared like a gun shot wound, There was nothing in the wound, which had been previously cleansed. I continued to attend him for a fortnight, when he was obliged to leave for the Grange. George Scott said : I am police inspector and magistrate in South Australia. I arrested prisoner on the 26th June from information I received from the Victorian police. It was at Mr. Weston's station, 45 miles north of Mount Gambier. I called him by his name, Woolman,and he said his name was Clark. He had engaged himself under that name. He denied all knowledge of the crime, but he afterwards acknowledged his name, and asked if the boy was dead. I told him the boy was not dead. I sent him on to Casterton. The prisoner being asked it he wished to say anything, resolutely affirmed his innocence. His Honor having summed up the evidence, the jury after a short deliberation returned a verdict of guilty on the second count, that of shooting with intent to do bodily injury. The governor of the jail spoke favorably of the conduct of the prisoner since he had been in the jail, which was now ten months. The prisoner was sentenced to 7 years hard labour on the roads.
