That Mem.st is married & has two children with the prospect of an increasing family and being desirous of making some provision for such, he applied to Lieutenant Governor Paterson for such as proportion of Land as he might please to allot him as a farm, when he was pleased to allow him the enclosed Grant of One hundred Acres as also the inclosed Lease of his Premises he now occupies for 14 years in consideration of the expense he had incurred in Building and keeping his Garden in so good a state of Cultivation which when he first came to it was little better than a barren Rock, but is now by his own entire industry become in high Cultivation; by which he is able make some profit that Lieutenant Governor Paterson taking into his consideration the good

behaviour which your Excellency's Memorialist has ever borne in this Colony was further pleased on application to grant Memorialist a free Pardon.

 1821 - COMPENSATION FOR CHARITY SCHOOL

No 16

Sydney February 19th 1821

 

Sir,

Agreeable to the wish of his Excellency the Governor made known to me through you. I present you with an estimate of what I consider a reasonable compensation for the land required by His Excellency.

 

It would have been more satisfactory to me had it been left to the decision of two competent judges but as it is otherwise arranged it remains only for me to state the compensation expected. I have to premise that the small house occupied by Kellahar does not belong to me. There are two cottages standing on the land in question, which I desire to be rebuilt no? any other piece of ground in Sydney belonging to me that I may ? for the purposes; and for the ground I expect a grant of one thousand acres in lieu thereof.

 

Considering the undeniable situation of land and the certainty of its rapid increase in value the above mentioned compensation will not I trust be considered by His Excellency beyond what may be reasonably expected but should this so unfortunate as to differ in opinion with His Excellency then I must beg to have it settle by arbitration.

 

I am Sir,

Thos Rose

 

263 1200 acres of land - not a town allotment.

 

I agree to receive 1200 acres of land to be selected in any unappropriated disposable situation and a town allotment in Sydney at an equivalent & remuneration per the situation required for a Charity School on the south side of my present residence and lying between Castlereagh and Elizabeth Streets in the town of Sydney.
