FORWARD

This history is based on information collected by Henry Tollemache Edwards (1834-1915) who came to Bombala Station from Bangalore, Goulburn in 1847. He collected the information mainly from Thomas Fleming, the last survivor of the original pioneers, and from William McKay of Wallendibby. William Tait of Pine Stone, Edinburgh, Scotland who was at one time sheep overseer at Bibbenluke and was at Maffra in Boyd’s time also contributed information.

Thomas Fleming came into the Monaro District with Duncan McFarlane’s party in 1833. At the time Henry T. Edwards talked to him in the late 1880’s, he was a man of about eighty years of age - a sound, strong, man. He was living at Ingram’s Farm or selection on Boucher’s Creek at the Crossing on the road to Cambalong. His memory seemed sound and clear.

William McKay came to the Monaro some six years after Thomas Fleming.

Henry T. Edwards recorded and rewrote his notes at Bibbenluke in 1890 and H.A. Rose, Parkside, Nimmitabel N.S.W., made a copy 29th August 1975. This copy was deposited in the National Library of Australia at Canberra and I received a photocopy of it early in 2003 thanks to Therese Lloyd who traveled to Canberra and spent hours searching through boxes of information and ordered copies for me.

I have reorganized and rewritten the notes using the cut and paste technology now available. I have tried to be consistent in spelling of names although I am not sure that the spelling I have used is correct. Where I was not sure if differing spellings referred to the same person, I have left the spelling as I found it in the Rose version. For example, Pettrick, Pethrick, Pethee, and Petrick could possibly refer to the same person. The information has been organized by station or run and as people moved among stations references to individuals may be found under more that one station.

I have added some birth and death dates where I have been able to find reliable information and added some information relating to Henry T. Edwards where appropriate. My admiration and respect for my Edwards ancestors and cousins has motivated me to do this work. They totally amaze me.

As someone who has lived in Canada all my life, I am not familiar with the Monaro District. I would welcome feedback and corrections.

Introduction

The Monaro Plains, or, as they were originally called, Brisbane Downs, were in the early days of the settlement covered with aboriginals, kangaroos, emus and native dogs (Warrigals). The aboriginals were not very fierce or hostile on Manaroo.

The system under which runs were taken up by early pioneers, known as squatters, was as follows:

They traveled up from the then settled portion of the country with a team of bullocks, rations, and men who were usually assigned servants, taking with them sheep or cattle, sometimes both, to stock or hold possession of any unoccupied country they might find. When they came to a spot they fancied, they pitched their camp and settled down, marked out the boundary of the land they wished to occupy, and then sent a description to the Land Commissioner and apply for a Crown License to occupy. Description and value were often indefinite in the extreme, and never ending disputes arose between the adjoining occupants. Interlopers often came and settled on parts of the runs and in many instances ousted the original occupants

The rents charged by the crown were nominal. The rent or license for such runs as Bombala, Gunningrah and Bibbenluke proper would be from 10 pounds to 40 pounds per year. A 10-pound license was the lowest granted and would be considered equivalent a run for 5,000 sheep or 500 head of cattle.

The men with sheep had much the best of it and generally succeeded in hunting the cattle holder as the sheep and shepherds formed a much more permanent occupancy than cattle.


Bombala Station.

About 1833, the first men came up and took possession. These were Captain Ronald Campbell (1786-1871) and his brothers, Dr. I.B. Campbell, Pat Prendergas, a man known as Ned, the Tinker, a man known as Hairy Jacob and Bobby, a Scotch boy who cooked for the party. This party traveled up with Duncan McFarlane’s party as far as Jincumbilly. The two parties camped there together and then the Campbell party went on to the Bombala Station and took it up. The Campbell family still held Bombala Station in the 1890’s.

A man named Adams the Shoemaker either came up with the Campbells or joined them shortly after the first settlement. He and the other men mentioned as belonging to the first parties who came up were all assigned servants (convicts), but they were excellent men in all respects and had probably been sent from England for trivial offences.

The Bombala Township was first proposed to be located at Gows’ Hut on the Bombala Run at the crossing of the river on the old Sydney road, but opposition raised by the Campbells caused it to be removed to where it now stands. A Bong Bong came and settled down at Gows’ Flat, but as the Campbells had possession they drove him away. I think the name of this Bong Bong was Gow and that the flat was named after him.

The Township of Bombala, so called from being on the Bombala River, is situated on land on the East side of the river which originally formed a portion of the Maharatta Run, and the land on the west belonged to the Bukalong Run and was called Cootalmyong by the aboriginals. The Bukalong Run embraced a large area which originally included all Gallagher’s Plain that is now called "Terine" or Tyroine".


Jincumbilly

F. Kenny of Bong Bong took up this station in the early 1830’s.


Cambalong or Campbulong Station

This name is a corruption of the Aboriginal one, but what that was I never could ascertain. This Station was taken up by Hoskins a short time before Campbells took up Bombala Station. Hoskins belonged to a Sydney firm known as Hughes and Hoskins. (Terry Hughes well known in early Sydney History). They were merchants.

Joseph Bowles was Hoskin’s stockman and a man named Thomas Liscombe was the first overseer. Liscombe was a rather bad lot. He settled on part of Cambalong, but after some Court words went to Bald Hills Merridugah and was later at Buide.

During the time that Joe Bowles was stockman for Mr. Hoskins, cattle were speared by the Blacks when drinking from a round waterhole at the head of Pine Hut Creek which was enclosed by walls of rocks with only a narrow entrance.

Cambalong was occupied successively by:

A man named Clements was Boyd’s overseer at Cambalong in Sparke’s time but whether connected in business I cannot say.

Jack Shoulders was living at the old dairy station on Slaughter House Creek (Properly the Dairy House Creek), as the Slaughter House Creek is really what is now known as Pine Hut Creek where Kinghorn had a sheep station.


Bald Hills

Ruifhorn sat down at Cambalong and Hughes and Hoskins went to law with him and finally drove him off. Ruifhorn then went to the Bald Hills on Delegate River and was the first licensee of that small run.

Bald Hills was occupied successively by:


Aston

Aboriginal name Curronaggen and sometimes called "Lenois" by Sir I. Matheson after an island of that name on the coast of Scotland. A Mr. Atkinson of Bong Bong took up Aston about the same time as the Campbells took up Bombala Station. Atkinson may have taken up the station up for others. The next ostensible owners were Kingsworthy and Lord, of Sydney, merchants. Atkinson may have taken up the Station for them. A Mr. Baylin afterwards managed for them. Subsequently, he went to Gippsland and died there.

A man named Black Tom was left in charge of sheep. "Black Tom" killed a lot of blacks at Aston in self-defence and the bodies were burnt.

Alexander Hamilton afterwards of Woolway Station then came to Aston but whether as manager or part owner I cannot say. But, at any rate, he afterwards bought out Kingsworthy and Lord (Lord’s Hill is called after the latter). Fifties was overseer at Aston in Hamilton’s time. A man named Ryan, father of the Glenroy Ryans, was an assigned servant of Hamiltons.

Terry Ryan was an assigned servant of Alec Hamilton’s and was a lifer and therefore could not hold a crown license. It was said he was sent out for murder. He made a lot of money sly grog selling at Aston.

D. McKeachie (brother of Alexander McKeachie of Delegate Station) was a storekeeper at Aston. He died and was buried there. Burns was also a storekeeper at Aston. He was killed by a fall from his horse on "Burn’s Hill" now called after him.

Dr. Anderson had sheep on Anderson’s Plain but I think the Aston lessees hunted him.


Maharatta

Clensendorf (Clear-em-off) came and took possession in 1833 of the site on which Bombala now stands. He had sheep and cattle there. Jimmy Quinn was his stockman. Quinn was afterwards drowned in the Bombala River. Clensendorf moved off and the land passed into the Maharatta run

Maharatta was taken up by May and Throsby, the latter of Bong Bong and the former an English gentleman who returned to England some years after.

May was manager and lived at "old Maharatta" on Sausy Creek where the Willows now stand. Tommy Warburton was stockman and lived first at Black Springs on the road near Roseneath and afterwards moved to the present site of Maharatta old Homestead.

Two assigned servants came up with May and Throsby:

John McKinlay (1819 – 1872), the explorer, used to be at Maharatta a good deal in May and Throsby’s time. He took delivery of a mob of cattle there one time and drove them overland to Adelaide. McKinlay and Alex McKeachie of Delegate Station used to be a good deal together at the time.

Donald McKay, father of William McKay of Wallendibby lived at old Maharatta with Mr. May.

A Dr. Robinson whose wife was a connection of the Throsby’s lived at the Willows at old Maharatta in 1848.

Duncan McKay, father of George McKay formerly of Bukalong, lived at Maharatta in May and Throsby’s time. He died there and was buried in what is known as the permanent Common paddock below the old Race Course opposite the gates. There are several graves there although little, if any, trace of them now remains.

Throsby sold to George Hebben about 1852 to 1856. Mr. Hebben was a connection of Throsby’s. Hebben sold to Moses Joseph (1812-1899), a Sydney merchant, about 1861.

Bombala Township now stands on a part of the Run and was called Messmate Maharatta. Maharatta also embraced Aundundralo.


Little Plain

Aboriginal name for the conecial timbered hill at the east of the homestead. This run was taken up by "Merchant" Campbell about the same time as the other Stations abovementioned. Little Plain at one time included Ryan’s Junction Station and Cragie.

Charles Campbell, father of Frederick Campbell of Yarralumla was apparently mixed up in all the Stations taken up by "Merchant" Campbell. In fact, he must be identical with the latter. Clarke was the first overseer. Campbell sold to Lang and Robinson. They were overseers first, but the latter had an interest in the Station. They sold to John Nicholson who had a small Station called Dundunnrah previous to this. Probably, it was only a piece cribbed from Maharatta. Nicholson was a Bong Bong man and son of Captain Nicholson, at one time Harbor Master of Sydney.

Charles Lawson settled at Craigie, a portion cut off from Little Plain.


Delegate Station

Delegate Station is said to have been taken up first by "Merchant" Campbell about 1833/4. Donald Ross was his overseer, "Majura Harry", his stockman.

There is an old tradition that before Campbell took it up McFarlane, McLaurin and Wright, the father of J.E., A.H., and Murry Wright had possession of Delegate. There are also stories that Imlay of Bega had possession of Delegate and that he had cattle there, but the matter is doubtful.

The early settlers moved and wandered about capriciously, especially those who had cattle. Those who had sheep hunted the cattlemen out.


Currowong

James and Duncan McFarlane took Currowong, including Wallendibby and Tombong, up about 1833. John Gow was manager. Duncan McFarlane afterwards sold or probably gave in lieu for wages, Wallendibby to Gow. Gow had previously been overseer at Burnima so Currowong was likely taken up a year or so later than 1833. McFarlane sold out to Stanton and O’Hare and Tombong was made into a separate small station. But I don’t know who had it at that early date. W. Whitaker of Tubbut in Gippsland had Tombong at one time.


Burnima

Burnima embraced Archer’s Flat run (Staffords), Crankies Plain and Coolennbootia out to the Bald Hill and nearly to the Dragon at Cathcart.

Galbracth, a Bong Bong who was possibly related to the Cordeuas, took Burnima up about 1833. The Cordeuas used to come up to the Station in Galbracth’s time.

Alexander Graham, late of Gunningrah was one of the overseers and John Gow was another. Other early overseers were Gilbert McCallum and McClement.

Burnima was owned successively by:

William Wallace managed for King and Wallace. David Ryrie managed Burnima for himself and his brother.


Bibbenluke

Joshua Moore took Bibbenluke up about 1833.

Joshua Moore sold to Ben Boyd. Ben Boyd came out in the early days of the Colony to found the Royal Bank. He carried on business in temporary premises in Wynyard Square as a bank then turned his attention to buying stations. The country was almost insolvent at the time and many of the station properties were in the control of merchants. Boyd persuaded the merchants to approach the squatters and he bought the stations for a song. He called himself "Ready Money Boyd" and he acquired properties all over Australia but he retired or was deposed from the management of the Boyd Bank and Stations. He left Australia early in 1850

Ben Boyd sold to William Bradley whose heirs still had possession in the 1890’s.

Henry Hogath was storekeeper part of the time.

Liscombe had "Bandi".

Overseers were:

Henry T. Edwards arrived at Bibbenluke on Tuesday, March 25, 1862 and took charge of Bibbenluke as superintendent on March 26, 1862 – "day hot, a good deal of thunder". He still held this position in 1890 when he rewrote notes he had gathered from talking with Thomas Fleming.


Geennig

Geennig, one of the Bibbenluke series, was taken up by Frank Cooper about 1832 or 1833. Jack Mathews (Jack the Rammer) was his overseer. Jimmy Mathews (Jimmy the Rammer) was hut keeper. The hut was up the Spring Creek from Ivills’ old place on the McLaughlin River crossing on the Gunningrah Road. He sold the station to Ben Boyd with Bibbenluke. Ben Boyd sold to William Bradley.


Jincum Bill or Wangellie.

Taken up early in 1833 before Bombala or Bukalong by Frank Rennie of Lake Bathurst. Pethee was his overseer.

A Mr. Clensendor, known as "Clear-em-off" sat down on the Jincumbilly portion of the run at the crossing of Mt. Cooper. He left and Mr. Petrick apparently owner of the run sold to Ben Boyd who sold to William Bradley who incorporated this run with Bibbenluke.


Wag Wag or Sherwin's Hill

Dr. Sherwin took this property up about 1832 or 1833. Thomas Fletcher was his stockman (and was called Sherwin’s Tom). He lived on the Bobundrah Road on Sherwin’s Creek. Sherwin sold to Black Allan and Cockburn (son of Judge Cockburn). Allan and Cockburn sold to Boyd. Allan was the son of an Indian Officer and came from Rock Flat and Jews Flat near Cooma. The run afterwards passed into Boyds Bank, and then to Bradley’s Boco Rock Bibbenluke series. Frank Cooper took this Station up about 1833. It then comprised Boco Station also. English Peter was in charge as overseer. David Ryrie was in charge of Gallagher’s Plain and was hut keeper for Peter. They lived at the McLachlan River at Boco Rock. Thomas Davidson (The Bega-Cooma Davidsons) for Cooper. Spring Flat (Bells) formed part of it and the Crash Bells cribbed Spring Flat portion of the run and afterwards sold to Pettrick and he sold to Dr. Bell who was overseer at Gunningrah for Terry Hughes at that time.


Waterloo

One of the Bibbenluke series takes its name from an old waterloo soldier who is buried on a little round hill on the boundary of Wangellie and Gunnningrah across the creek on the Bobundra road.


Bukalong

Taken up in 1833 by Duncan and J. McFarlane who were apparently backed by "Merchant" Campbell as he appeared to have an interest in the Station. Bukalong then included Gallagher’s Plain, Cunningham’s Point, Pickering’s Peak, Mount Pleasant Garnocks and Tyrome. Duncan McFarlane lived at Bukalong in the present old Homestead.

G.Garnock settled on Mt. Pleasant, a corner of Bukalong. It was named Mt. Misery. Pickering Peak was named after Pickering of Snape and Pickering of Bell’ Life Newspaper. They were mixed up with Garnock.

Gallagher’s Plain was a portion cut off Bukalong by Garnock or given to him by E.M. Boucher. It was named after James Gallagher, a shepherd of McFarlanes.

His party and the Campbells as mentioned in the account of Bombala Station all apparently traveled up together. A man named Thomas Fox, who went over the Snowy River at Marinumbla and, at the time, lived at Foxs’ Plain drove the team for McFarlanes party. Jacob Ken’s stockman showed them Bukalong and the McFarlanes settled there, just in the Creek where the old Homestead now stands

McFarlane sold to John Boucher. Gow was McFarlane’s overseer first and went to Currowong afterwards.

The Myles were shepherding at Bouchers on the Creek in 1848.

The blacks were very troublesome. A black fellow named Go Go Rig nearly killed Thomas Fleming when he was hut keeping near Gallagher’s Plain where Kyles’ now live.

The creek that runs down at the back of old Tyronie Homestead is called Wash Pen Creek as McFarlane and Boucher used to wash their sheep there.


Gunningrah

Frank and James Cooper of Lake George took up Gunningrah early in 1833. The Coopers sold to John Terry Hughes. A Mr. McIntire apparently had an interest in the Station and lived there for many years not far from where the present homestead stands. The McKays from Maharatta took Hennings place on his leaving. Hughes Hortiner sold Gunningrah to George P. and F. Desailly of Gippsland and by them to James Manning of Gamarautra and by them to The Honorable William Graham and by him to the present owner, John Cruickshank.

Pethrick was the first overseer. David Bell of Spring Flat was also overseer for John Terry Hughes and lived at the Homestead for some years. Tommy Fleming was stockman part of the time.


Mount Cooper

Mount Cooper, which was named after Frank Cooper included Jettiba, Native Dog and Holts Flat. Charles Campbell and Merchant Campbell took these up either at the end of 1832 or early in 1833. Donald Rankin was manager. They sold or gave the Native Dog portion of the run afterwards to Rankin. Donald McNee succeeded Rankin as overseer.

Successive owners were:

Taylor's Flat

Jimmy Martin or Taylor had Taylors Flat about Cathcart in the early days although he may not have been the first to take it up. He came first to part of Burnima opposite Bibbenluke, and then moved on to Cathcart.


McLeay Flat

Peter and Dr. Allen & Imlay of Bega had the Country about Cathcart and now called the Murdering Range. I think they had McLeay Flat originally before the Badgerys. William Power was Stockman. The run embraced Ryans’ Yarra portion. The Murdering range name came from a blackfeller killing the hutkeeper at Tommy Moore’s Burnima hut. The hutkeeper took a gin and the black fellow sneaked behind him one evening as he was going for water and killed him.

There is no reliable information on who first took up McLeay Flat but the following were successive owners or lessees:


Curry Flat (Jardine)

Roberts of Braidwood had this Station but mixed up in some way with Badgerys. Joe Cassidy was overseer. Joe Camers stockkeeper. Robert Badgery sold to William Jardine.


Bungarby

G. Trigcombe (who afterwards went to Gippsland) had this station first. It then included the present junction run (Langhorns). P. Carrol was Trigcombe’s stockman. Trigcombe sold to Joseph Peters, an innkeeper of Marulan. The tradition is that Trigcombe and Peters were partners and that Peters eventually ousted Trigcombe. John Langhorn (Jack the Tailor) got the lower part of Bungarby and it was called the "Juntion" run. Langhorn sold the run to the present owner, Henry T. Edwards.


Maffra

Cunningham of Cunningham’s Point and Thompson of Clyde Bank, Gippsland held this run. Fisher, afterwards of Aston was overseer at Maffra. It was known in the old times as Pinch Gut. Clensendorf had the "Mila Bog" Run and Fisher was his overseer at one time.


Juntion

A. Irving was living at what is now known as Terry Ryans Creek where J.E. Wright now lives. He settled down there but the Campbells hunted him. Terry Ryan of Aston and J.S. Hensleigh had the "Juntion Run" they had purchased from Irving. The former was reported owner but was debarred from holding a crown license so Hensleigh held it.
