Descendants of William & Mary Mason of Wickington, South Tawton & Queensland, Australia

William Westaway was born 1786 in Sampford Courtenay, the son of John Westaway & Dorothy Snell and died 10 Mar 1858 in Okehampton. He married Mary Mason 21 Nov 1809 in Milton Abbot, Devon.Mary died on the 14th of Aug. 1839, Aged 51 year and was buried in Milton Abbot. William was a farmer at Wickington, South Tawton until 1836. His father, John`s will in 1828, was very detailed and rather contentious. Whilst he left different properties to his children, the majority of his estate, including Reddaway appears to have been left to his son George. John states that if any of his other sons shall attempt to go to law with his son George, that their legacy shall be absolutely void. However, John appears to have had many debts, and used his aunt Ann Snell, a spinster, as a bond creditor. In the inventory for John, dated 1833-4, it clearly shows that once these debts were paid there was little left. This had a disastrous effect on all the sons, William lost Wickington and the Bridestow properties and in 1851 was living with his son in law in Okehampton. His brother George emigrated to Australia, although in 1841 his two daughters are still in Sampford Courtenay at Reddaway Farm. Two of William`s sons seem to have joined their Uncle George in Australia. They could have sailed together as certainly they are not in Devon in 1841. John married Jane Sloggett and Richard Mount Edgecombe married Barbara Huggard and from these two brothers came many Australian descendants.

Generation No. 2

2. John Westaway was born 1810 in South Tawton, Devon, and died 1867 in Australia. He married Jane Sloggett 1838 in Australia after meeting her on board the Argyle whilst sailing to Australia .

John sailed from Plymouth in the Argyle on the 13 December 1838, on board he met Jane SLOGGETT,baptised 6 April 1823, the daughter of William & Jane (Parsons) SLOGGETT, of Altarnun  Cornwall. They sailed into Sydney 1 April 1839. Jane & John were married on 25 August 1839 in St. Phillip's Sydney by William Cooper. Settled at The Willows Oberon, where he learned Australian farming.The snow was two feet deep when they arrived, with only tents to live in. No wonder John's bronchitis got worse.After a year John & Jane returned to Sydney ,where he was a butcher at Surry Hills. There Mary Anne  was born 5 May 1841 & William Henry on 17 August 1843 .They were Baptised at St James's Church Sydney, by Rev Charles Kemp.The other nine children were born at their Winstanes farm at Eagle Farm, Brisbane. In 1843 land became available in Brisbane, as the convict settlement was abandoned. John acquired a farm at Winstanes, opposite where the Queensland Golf Course is today.By 1854 he had added three more farms, at Toombul & Eagle Farm. He went to any gold strike, he knew of, must have found some gold. He seemed to have bought land for a pound an acre, each time he returned. Jane kept the family together,working hard. She started a milk run & engaged share farmers to help her. She collected the rents from houses & farms, they owned.          John took up the lease of Mooloolah Plains, 25 sq miles of land between the Mooloolah & Maroochy Rivers, some 100 kl   north of Brisbane (by today's roads) on 2 April 1862. This land was settled by his sons 18year old William Henry & 16 year old Richard. They with three other men drove 500 cattle from Eagle Farm to the Mooloolah Plains in four months. John would see to the provisions, when at home. There was a small settlement at the mouth of the Mooloolah River, where Mr Peddigrew a timber mill owner in Brisbane, bought & transported the timber logs through to Brisbane by boat. The stores normally came  with him. Some believe John brought the stores himself, in a whale boat with aboriginal oarsmen  & may be a sail. We have nothing to verify how, but we do know. John died at Mr Peddigrew's hut at the mouth of the Mooloolah River on the 22 June 1867 of pneumonia. He was buried in the private cemetery there, his remains were later removed to the Nundah Cemetery, where the Brisbane family are buried. Biographical notes by Yvonne W

They called it Meridan Plains,& as the other selectors went broke they bought their land.That is where Richard Westaway & his family, Leonard Westaway & Betty Palethorpe, live to day.
