Abstract

William Clark (1769-1851) arrived in Tasmania in 1824 and settled near Bothwell at Cluny, and later acquired other property on the River Jordan at the Hunting Ground, later called Mauriceton .John Clark (1807-1853),the youngest son, came with his father to Tasmania and was Keeper of the Bonded Store in Launceston, Coast Waiter and Searcher at George Town and Police Magistrate at Hobart, Launceston, George Town and later Bothwell. He returned to take over the management of Cluny in 1838. He married Jane Eddie but had no children. The William and John Clark Papers are an interesting record of a settler family. They include papers concerning the management of the Cluny property, a few papers relating to Bothwell and John Clark's correspondence concerning his work as a magistrate. There are also letters to John Clark from William Bames (1791 ?-1848), brewer of Launceston, 1829-1839; Matthew Curling Friend of Newnham, Port Officer at George Town, 1833-1841, and from Charles Arthur (1808-1884), nephew of and Aide-de-Camp to Lt.-Governor George Arthur, 1827-1829. There are also letters from British army officers' wives and daughters addressed to Jane Clark. Royal Society RS.8
