Abstract

George Tayor (1758-1828) emigrated to V.D.L. in 1822 and received a grant of land on the Macquarie River which he named Valley-Field. Three of his sons, George, David and Robert also received land near Valleyfield. The subscription list of 1824 was for a piece of plate to be presented to Mr Taylor of Macquarie River for his conduct in resisting an attack upon his house by convicts from Macquarie Harbour. The subscriptions are noted in "dollars" (from $1 - $4). 43 names or signatures of settlers are entered. Royal Society RS.94
