Hancock's List

This List is reproduced from:
 DISCOVERING MONARO. A study of manís impact on his environment by W K Hancock.


The list is arranged in five columns, as follows: 
Column 1. The lease number, as given in 1848 and 18 5 0, in the gazetted list of lessees and runs in the Maneroo District. 
Column 2. Name of the run. (Here and in the text of the following chapters contemporary spellings are used.) Column 3. Lessee or lessees. 
Column 4. Residence: 
                R = Resident in Monaro (total, 27) 
                NR= Non-resident in Monaro (total, 71) 
           U = Residence unknown (total, 32) 
Column 5. Livestock: 
                C = Cattle (total cattle runs, 5 7) 
                S = Sheep (total sheep runs, 2 8) 
                CS = Cattle and Sheep (total mixed runs, 44) H = Horses (horse run, 1) 

These labels are rather conjectural. The applicant for a lease was required to estimate the grazing capabilities of his run, and it has been assumed that he did so with reference to the animals actually grazing on his run when he applied for the lease. If this is so, we can deduce from the Gazettes a picture of the grazing use of land in Monaro in the late 1840s.
