commented on person William CHAPMAN
: | William arrived FREE aboard the "Allies"on 12th Sept 1823 aged 20. He was one of 3 servants of Edward Gostwyck Cory and his wife Frances nee Johnson.
Mary Ann Hosegood was also one of these servants. She was 22 and was engaged as a maid/companion to Frances.
Days after arrival Edward Cory wrote to the Colonial Secretary requesting a grant of land, and less than a week later, took his party on the brig "Frame" to Newcastle.
Also on the Frame was John Herring Broughton who had arrived on the same ship one year earlier and had a grant called Trillimby on the Patterson River. He & his wife became neighbours and life long friends of Mary's.
William & Mary were married at Christ Church Newcastle on 5th Jan 1824. William petitioned for a grant of land which was confirmed in July 1825 of 60 acres. Situated opposite Broughtons property, Trillimby. on the bank of the Paterson River. The Cory grant Vineyard Cottage, was some distance away but they were all friends.
A daughter Emmeline or Emma was born on 8th May 1824.Another daughter Ann was born Nov 17th 1825.
William continued to work for Edward Cory part time as well as clearing & working on his land. Mary & William had started an Orchard and veggie garden.
On 25th July 1827 when their baby William was just under 4 months old, William died of an injury received whilst felling timber on his property, it is not know if he died instantly or after. It is possible he was buried on his grant, but there was a burial ground on the Boughton property, Tillimby which could be his last resting place.
The 1828 census has Mary, Ann and baby William at Tillimby, the home of John Boughton & his wife Charlotte nee Westbrook.
Emma at the time of census was at Vineyard cottage with the Cory family. This became a permanent arrangement.
