Augusta Allan (1808–1860)

AUGUSTA ALLAN née BAYLY, was the fourth child and second daughter of NICHOLAS BAYLY and his wife SARAH LAYCOCK. At around age eleven, AUGUSTA’s baby sister, ELLEN, died aged 10 months and 15 days. The following year, AUGUSTA was only around twelve years old when her mother died shortly after the birth of AUGUSTA’s youngest sister, SARAH ELLEN MARIA. In 1823, fifteen-year-old AUGUSTA and her eight fellow surviving siblings became orphans when their father NICHOLAS committed suicide. AUGUSTA married ANDREW ALLAN Esq., eldest son of Deputy Commissary General Allan, at St. John’s Church, Parramatta, with SAMUEL MARSDEN officiating, after which ‘the happy pair’ participated ‘in an elegant entertainment’ at St. John’s Parsonage, Parramatta. AUGUSTA’s husband ANDREW died in 1837, and one of their sons, TEIGMOUTH GEORGE PAGET ALLAN, also died in 1850, aged 17, and both were buried in the BAYLY family vault. In 1860, 52-year-old AUGUSTA also died and was interred in the BAYLY family vault at St. John’s.

LOST LANDMARK: ST. JOHN’S PARSONAGE (2020)

PART I: GEORGIAN PARSONAGE

By Michaela Ann Cameron

Abstract: Despite its untimely demise, or that few now even know that a building so commanding ever existed on the crown of the southern ridge, St. John’s Parsonage, Parramatta occupies as prominent a place in our history as it once did in the town. In this publication, therefore, I take the parsonage building itself as my biographical subject, detailing its birth as a Georgian Parsonage, its rebirth as a Victorian Private Mansion and Ladies’ College, and its premature death in the Edwardian era, whilst also highlighting the various characters who were responsible for its creation and destruction, as well as the many and diverse people whose lives played out within the walls of this historic home and ‘lost landmark.’ Read more>>

NICHOLAS BAYLY: THE ANTI-SETTLER (2020)

By James Dunk

Abstract: Though he really was, for a time, one of the principal inhabitants of the colony with a good deal of land and money in his hands, Nicholas Bayly was never satisfied, and never successful. Perhaps he was a poor match for the colony. Others seemed to make the most of the freedoms and opportunities of their colonial setting. They took their free land from Aboriginal People, free convict labour, free seed, free stock, free food. They traded astutely, farmed wisely, made money, and built up small and great estates and left much more to their children than they had inherited. But Nicholas Bayly took one wrong turn after another, almost from the outset. And yet he seems worth remembering—not as a successful colonist, a ‘principal inhabitant’ of the settler colony, whatever that might mean, or as a masculinist hero of the rebellion, but as the marked anti-settler of the colony, the one who could not or would not settle. Read more>>
