Aberdeen NSW - history late 1860s to late 1870s
« on: Saturday 14 August 21 12:22 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone.

Just wondering if anyone has any local history publications for Aberdeen NSW. I have an ancestor John MORROW who had lived there during the late 1860s and 1870s. I know he had been working as a carrier, and this is also confirmed by a registration of horse branding for 1871 available on TROVE.
I can't find any land records so far for him at Aberdeen (but do have some from later elsewhere in NSW). But he had two sons both born late 1860s in general area, so presume they might have gone to the school there in their early years.

I am hoping they might be mentioned in a publication somewhere. I also know there was a school centenary, hope there might be a publication from that too.

Thanks, Katharine.

if you Google Aberdeen NSW historical society {don't forget the NSW as there are many Aberdeens in the world, it seems) - you get various references.  Or you could try Hunter Valley historical society.
It seems the University of Newcastle (NSW) has a 'Living Histories' section though that may not cover your time frame.   Or you could try Scone & Upper Hunter Historical Society - can't see an email address but they are on Facebook.
