Gostwyck Station is so considerably far more than just a beautiful Anglican Chapel covered in red-leafed Virginian Creeper surrounded by majestic English Elm trees. It is the story of 1 of the earliest and wealthiest pastoral properties of New England. In 1832 Edward Gostwyck Cory squatted on land near Uralla to where Armidale now stands. Just two year later he sold the station which he had named after his grandfather to William Dangar and his brother from the Hunter Valley. The station was one of the largest in NSW. Dangar constructed himself a big octagonal woolshed in 1851 which he had developed himself. It is now portion of Deargee station (at times spelt Deeargee.)
In the 1850s the Dangar brothers got 14 year leases to their run which pastured over 20,000 sheep. Steadily a grand homestead was built by adding to the original 1840 residence in 1859 and again in 1871. By 1862 Gostwyck employed 23 complete time shepherds plus one more 14 full time staff. When shearing started 32 shearers descended on the home with 22 assistants. In 1862, for example Gostwyck employed 120 complete time and casual staff. It was large company. But just a handful of years later almost everything changed. By 1869 Gostwyck covered a massive area such as 30,000 acres of freehold land, therefore the grander homestead. This was the period when land was being provided to selectors, modest farmers, but the Dangars managed to purchase up a lot of the land provided on their run. But the large modify in 1869 was that all the paddocks had been fenced by then with barbed wire. A mere 7 boundary riders had replaced the 23 shepherds.
Gostwyck remained in the hands of the Dangars the excellent pioneering household of the 1830s for a lot of decades to come. Henry had come to NSW in 1821 as a surveyor. He was the man who surveyed the Hunter River Valley for the government as it prepared the valley for totally free settlers. Henry also developed the layout of the city of Newcastle. For his government service he was offered a large land grant in the centre of Newcastle and on this land Henry Dangar trialled a meat cannery performs at 1 stage. He also acted as surveyor for the Australian Agricultural Business ( AAC) at Port Stephens. He surveyed 600,000 acres for them. He also took out his personal leasehold land and so by 1850 the Dangar brothers at Gostwyck had more than 300,000 acres of leasehold. Henry Dangar ultimately became a member of the Legislative Council of NSW from 1845 and he died in Sydney in 1861 with an estate valued at the large sum of £280,000. Despite this social and political prominence a group of his assigned convicts on 1 his of his New England runs massacred a big group of Aboriginal men and women in 1838. The convicts have been responsible for killing 28 girls and children at Myall creek towards Inverell. Seven of the convicts have been hung for murder but Henry Dangar clearly wanted the massacre to be forgotten. Following the public investigation of this massacre and trial, future reprisals against Aboriginal men and women in New England had been not reported to authorities. Some say Dangar sacked the shepherd who reported the Myall Creek Massacre to police.
When 1 of the later generations to Henry Dangar was killed for the duration of Planet War One in France, Clive Dangar, his widow had the quite tiny Anglican Church erected on Gostwyck as a memorial to her late husband. The English Elms along the driveway had been planted many decades earlier. The Dangars maintained ownership of Gostwyck until 1936. It was a 30,000 acre freehold estate nonetheless at that stage. These days it has been broken up into smaller properties therefore the old shearing shed is on Deargee Station now. It is one of the largest and oldest woolsheds in New England with a diameter of 15 m. It was utilised by 24 blade shearers operating in a circle. It also became one particular of the 1st sheds to use a Wolseley shearing machine in 1890. The three-tier roof made by Henry Dangar possessed a clerestory of glass ventilators which allowed shearers to operate in a effectively-lit and ventilated shearing shed.
Gostwyck Station is near Uralla.
Henry Dumaresq of Saumarez took out his run in 1834 and it covered the location that is now the town of Uralla. The government reserved land for a town web site right here in 1849 as several bush tracks crossed here and Samuel McCrossin had established a bush inn here for the thirsty stockmen, drovers and travellers. A couple of years later a tiny gold uncover nearby at Rocky Creek started a mini gold rush to the district. The village of Uralla took shape. 5,000 men have been on the goldfields close to Uralla and by 1859 the tiny town had three hotels, a post office (an vital service in the 19th century) and a college. The village was gazetted in 1855 a year prior to additional gold finds in 1856. Chinese miners outnumbered Europeans and the streets of Uralla sang to the high pitch of spoken Chinese. When the surface gold petered out the Chinese moved on to other fields. Some gold mining continued for about 30 years. But Uralla’s early claim to fame as a wheat expanding district was short lived as another colony, South Australia outdid it. Uralla was opened up for selectors in the early 1860s and they grew wheat, despite the climate not becoming best. Samuel McCrossin established a huge flour mill in the town in 1870 and it now houses an superb local museum which is effectively worth going to. As the area below wheat expanded swiftly in SA in the early 1870s the Uralla-Armidale district could not compete as they had an unfavourable climate, the wheat quality was poor, and they had no railway to transport it out to the coast. But Uralla survived as its hinterland was nicely watered and outstanding for sheep and other types of agriculture. As soon as the railway arrived in 1882 the future of the town was assured. It was declared a municipality in that same year. Soon after Planet War A single soldier settler blocks have been designed near Uralla and several orchards had been established thus expanding the town’s population.
While in Uralla appear out for:
the Information Centre on the corner of Bridge Street and the New England Highway Captain Thunderbolt’s grave site in the town cemetery on the eastern side McCrossins Mill Museum and the Thunderbolt Collection( admission or for a concession) the old Phoenix Foundry which tends to make wrought iron lacework- it is now a museum and open for a tiny fee the town heritage walk which points out a quantity of 19th century buildings the remarkable sculpture and art operate in the Glen Park the Military Museum in East street the historic railway station the Court Home constructed 1885 the antique retailers and bookshop along the New England Highway and the fine old churches- Presbyterian, Anglican, Salvation Army and Catholic and the a lot of fine hotels, basic retailers and institute buildings. The town also has two galleries- the Barking Dog in Bridge Street and the Chaucer Gallery in Bridge Street. Note the names of some of the street such as Salisbury which refers to the other major historic home of the district apart from Gostwyck. Salisbury Court station is yet another of the excellent pastoral estates of New England. Make confident you look out for Joan Relke’s and Carl Merten’s Constellations of the South sculpture project. Funding came from Armidale and the town of Uralla in 2004. The sculptures are scattered in a set order in the Glen Park on the northern entrance to Uralla. They incorporate a 19 metres obelisk and eight granite boulders to represent the constellations of the Southern solstice. Metal function on the boulders was cast in the Phoenix Foundry in Uralla. The metal works are known as Carina and the Spirit of the Southern Cross and they are not to be missed. Only two of the 8 granite boulders are yet in place. The obelisk is sited to lined up with the axis of the summer solstice and the boulders are arranged in a parabolic arc so that they are all equidistant from the obelisk.
Fred Ward or Captain Thunderbolt as he was later identified was born close to Tocal Station in the reduce Hunter Valley in 1835. He worked at Tocal as a horse breaker in and a drover as he had a really like and passion for functioning with horses. At age 21, Fred Ward was convicted of horse stealing while employed at Tocal and sentenced to ten years gaol. 4 years later he was released on parole but he infringed his parole situations by failing to turn up to a parolees muster and he was returned to gaol in 1861. In 1863 he escaped from gaol and started his life as a bushranger and escapee but 1st he married an Aboriginal lady and lived at Bourke for some time with his wife and two youngsters. As an outstanding horseman he could “ride like a thunderbolt” and as a result this was the nickname ascribed to him. Between 1863 and 1869 he harassed travellers on the New England Tablelands but his drinking meant that he was nearly captured by police a number of occasions. He lived on his wits, his stolen earnings and he survived due to the fact of his superb horsemanship. His escapade even so, ended in May 1870 when he was shot by Constable Walker close to Uralla. Thunderbolt was 36 years of age when shot. He was buried in the Uralla cemetery and the town now commemorates him with a big statue and his name on some rocks near where he was shot. Thunderbolt usually used the granite boulders to hide behind before holding up travellers.
