Exploration and Settlement
Most of these books and journals do not contain an index. The works of James Jervis, in particular, contain useful research material , describing people, properties and towns.
Campbell’s article on the Hunter Valley contains Dangar’s map and list of properties and owners.
H. Green’s thesis based on Dangar’s maps and other sources provide an extensive listing of landholders with references.
Researchers should also see my holdings of local histories.
I am happy to do a reasonable number of lookups for you . There is no charge for this service but a donation would be appreciated. It is up to you…more. Alternatively you might like a copy of the article. If so ask for a quotation at firstname.lastname@example.org
