This thesis is a study of the first permanent occupation of Tasman Peninsula; The survey and purchase of land and the evolution of a land use pattern within the expanding boundaries so formed. The nature of the work has necessitated a heavy reliance on survey information in the Department of Lands and Surveys, from which maps and tables have been compiled, and the annual reports of the Pembroke District Surveyor between 1880 and 1935, Joshua Hinsby. Bush settlement is generally an anonymous process, the pioneers having little time to write, and thus Hinsby's comments provide an invaluable record of what was happening on the land.
