George Marshall (1791-1881), originally of Ruthven, near Dundee, Scotland, arrived in Van Diemen's Land in 1821, and with his family settled near Sorell. His farm accounts, 1872-1883, have been preserved, together with the will of his son, David Marshall (1919) and miscellaneous notes on family history made by his grandson. One of his grandsons, Gearge Douglas Marshall, married Beatrice Terry, grandaughter of Ralph Terry (1815-1892) of Lachlan Mills, New Norfolk, so some papers of the Terry family are included. Ralph Terry came to Australia as a child early in 1819, with his father, John Terry (1771-1844) who had been a miller in Yorkshire, England. Terry purchased a windmill in Sydney but gave it up when he found he could only have a 21 year lease. The family moved to V.D.L. where, as John Terry said, there were plenty of waterfalls and a need for mills, and was granted land at New Norfolk.
