Papers of the executors of Rev. Archibald Macarthur a
Presbyterian minister who returned to England in 1836
leaving his affairs and three of his children, Mary, Henry William
and John, in the care of trustees and guardians, namely
John Walker, Henry Hopkins and John Geiss. The eldest son,
Archibald, accompanied him to England where he apparently died
before his father, who died in January 1847. MacArthur's will,
made in 1836, left his property to be divided between his
surviving children on reaching the age of 21. The guardians
were named as executors and trustees. Also John Walker's accounts as guardian of the MacArthur children,
including receipts and expenses, such as school fees, clothing etc. and miscellaneous papers of John Walker including Immigrant bounty applications, 1854.
