SARAH ELLEN was named after both her sister, ELLEN, who died the year before she was born, aged just 10 months and 15 days, and after her mother SARAH, who died shortly after SARAH ELLEN was born. SARAH ELLEN’s father committed suicide when she was three years old, leaving her and her surviving siblings, orphans.

SARAH ELLEN never married, and died at the age of 35. She was buried in the BAYLY family vault.

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>>
