Could I prevail on your time to answer a question that has defied my research?

In a book published by in 1958 by the Royal Australian Historical Society by MacLeod Morgan titled "The Bulga or Coal River - Australia's First North Road" Page 205/6 Chapter heading "Putty"

These pages contain historical background of the earl settlement of the area by my ancestors Hannah and TWEB Laycock and a map of the area.

This map shows "Clear Farm" to be in close proximity to "Putty Farm" and page 206 states "at the top was "Clear Farm", owned once by Robert Ritchie (who died less than three months after purchasing the site from the Crown) and then Farlow."

Could you please tell me the full name of the "Farlow" who purchased "Clear Farm" and the dates that he held it.

This information could be an important family link as I am also descended from Robert Farlow, whose grandson James married TWEB Laycock's daughter Elizabeth.

I would greatly appreciate your assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Margaret M. Smith

Hi There
I have looked through my notes and I too am unable to help with the information requested. I do have some info on Christian and Harriet and Mary Ann's families as they all married Nowlands and Christian daughter Elizabeth Baldwin is of the line that I am associated. Please email me if you would like any of my information as I am willing to swap
Many thanks
and good luck(the only avenue I can think of is BDM of NSW, I did a quick look to no sucess but I am unsure to what exact area The Bulga is)
