Hi Roy,
Have you ever heard of a place named "Murdering Flat"?
My great, great grandfather is mentioned as bankrupt in (NSW Records) 1868 Location "Murdering Flat" Occupation: Farmer. Sequestration 9 July 1868. Any help greatly appreciated.
His name was William Garment (ex 99th Regiment of Foot).
With thanks from Allannah Wooloughan

Hi Allannah, there is a "murdering flat" down Victoria way, around where the
Gold Rushes use to be. (1851 ONWARDS)

Thanks Roy,
The place I am looking for was actually Murdering Swamp, Aspley NSW. Sounds delightful doesn't it?
Thanks for your help

I am interested in the origin of the name Murdering Swamp too. I have a Lewis family living there and in Aspley in the 1860s and 70s.

Hi Roy
Has anyone heard of Coindaar? It is named as birthplace in @1837 of a relative who was married in Merriwa and died in Dubbo. Not sure if it could be a property name. Thanks for anyone's ideas/help - Alison
