3 responses to “Land Grants (1825) – a roll call of (some of) the displacers and map (1824)

  1. Robyn Watson

    Cant seem to find grant for William Watson in Muddy Plains of 650 acres now known as Southarm. Given to him by Gov Arthur June 1825

    • hi Robyn
      He’s missing from what notes I have:

      Bath (Jericho) (County of Monmouth):
      Robert Watson (800 acres)

      Lennox (Ross)(County of Somerset):
      Prideaux Watson (500 acres),

      Bathurst (Epping Forest) (County of Somerset):
      Joseph T Watson (500 acres), Joseph T Watson (800 acres)

      Lake River (Cressy) (County of Westmorland):
      Henry Watson (30 acres)

      Swanport (County of Glamorgan):
      Thomas Watson (1280 acres)

      Caledon (Richmond) (County of Monmouth):
      George Watson (1000 acres), George Watson (1560 acres)

      Where did you find the reference – I probably have a whole lot of people to add to the master list. * This list on the blog is only from one newspaper source and is incomplete.

    “Displacers” is an interesting description of the people on this list. Currently, in the Middle East, particularly Syria and Iraq, ISIS are displacing people whom have lived there for possibly generations. Jews are displacing Palestinians. Tibet was incorporated into the more powerful China. Under the NAZI scheme thousands were dispossessed. The Japanese committed unspeakable atrocities upon whatever soil they set foot. Napoleon’s armies displaced as many. The Roman empire conquered whatever and whomever was in their path. The first settlers of North America displaced the aboriginal people and worse. The Spaniards, in their quest for gold and booty have plunders South and Central America, annihilating ancient civilisations. And, there are countless more I have not mentioned. This is world history, human history, human evolution. While it does not make it right, does any reader think they can re-write history, right all the wrongs, tear up the mortgage contracts between landholders and ANZ, Commonwealth, NAB, and Wetpac banks and all their money, including interest refunded? Tasmania’s history is not unlike the history of any of the aforementioned, throughout the world. Think of all the great inventions that have benefitted humankind that were created from the minds of Tasmanians, of Australians. None of it would have been possible, had Australia not been taken by force, settled, and left wild.
