ArticleAccording to Elizabeth Bean's death certificate - she was 96 when she died at Parramatta. However, her maiden name in the death certificate is shown as Elizabeth Kirshaw, this is incorrect. Her father was James Thomas John Bean and mother Elizabeth Taylor. At the time of her death, she was survived by one son and one daughter. Three males and two females deceased. The informant for the death certificate was her son-in-law W. Mansfield.

Sydney Gazette 23 August, 1822 - " To the Editor of the Sydney Gazette - Sir, I trust my communication will not be deemed an intrusion either upon you columns, or your Readers. Something within me exists, as a prompter, to impel me before the Public - I have often looked upon the wretchedness of the poor New Hollander, and sighed for an alleviation of his distress. There now appears some prospect of good, according to the reply to Philanthropus. A certain paragraph in the communication constrained me to visit the Native Institution; and I was astonished, beyond measure, at the proficiency of the children under the tuition of the Governess, Mrs Shelley. The Institution did not contain more than twelve children. This diminutive numbers is the result of having married several of the females, who have been settled at Boongarruuby; and death has thinned their ranks. The few, however, that remain, bear ample testimony to two important facts: 1 - They have not made the proficiency to which they have attained without the most assiduous care of the Governess. From the little knowledge I possess of the blacks, I think myself competent to pronounce, with decision, on their character. They possess a vagrancy of mind that bears a strict analogy to their vagrancy of body. And those who have attempted merely to domesticate ONE black, and to make, him contented with a local habitation, will immediately perceive, how constant that application must have been on the part of the Governess, that has effected wonders, so extraordinary upon twelve. 2 - That these Aborigines posses powers of mind that may be greatly enlarged and improved. It is true that an excessive darkness seems to becloud their intellects, and apparently forbids the approach of intellectual light. But, it is very evident that this darkness is only apparent. I am fully convinced, that we have altogether erred in our estimation of the blacks, because we have inferred their total darkness, by comparing it with the effulgence of our own light. There is certainly a diversity in human minds, and much more may be expected from some of these natives, than from others. And as this same remark is applicable to the whole of the human family, does it not follow, if the tuition of the rising generation be perseveringly attended to, that we shall see from among these Natives, ornaments to political, moral and religious society. Much praise is due to Miss Shelley for the great attention she has paid to the female part of this little company. Nothing but seeing can prove a proper source of believing how much has been effected. If a company of Ladies and Gentlemen, would form themselves on a plan of paying regular visits to these children, doubtless their improvement would be greatly facilitated. There is no lack of persons in Parramatta of sufficient respectability to afford a little time for this purpose: and their little endeavors would produce great emulation in the minds of the children. This measure, in my judgment, would effect a change so mighty in the natives, generally, that they would send their children to the Institution, and the respectable Public would be insensibly drawn, to co-operate with All mighty God, in restoring to this moral image a people, the most degraded in the human family. Yours &c Aneradelphos.4"

the Sydney Gazette25 August 1829James Thomas John Bean Jnr. was mentioned in an article in the Sydney Gazette on Tuesday, 25 August 1829 as follows:

Sydney Gazette of 25 August 1829
Description of the hanging of John Holmes on 21-8-1829 after burning down a barn belonging to James Thomas John BEAN (Jun.)

On Friday last, John Holmes, convicted of arson at Campbelltown, was executed pursuant to his sentence. When on the scaffold, the rev. Mr Therry addressed the Under Sheriff and enquired whether he would be permitted to communicate the prisoner's confession to the numerous assemblage of persons who were collected to witness the execution. Immediate assent was given and Mr Therry then stated that the unfortunate culprit acknowledged his guilt, as well as the justice of his sentence; that he had committed many crimes, but sincerely hoped that God had forgiven him, as he freely forgave all those by whom he had ever been injured. The prisoner then addressed the spectators himself earnestly entreating that they would take warning by his fate, and avoid the evil consequences of bad company which had brought him to an untimely and disgraceful end. The Under Sheriff expressed himself gratified at hearing a declaration from the prisoner which must be so consolatory to himself, and so gratifying to his friends and all present. Holmes then joined in prayer with great devotion and in a few minutes the drop fell.

After hanging the usual time, his body was earnestly requested by many persons, and Mr Prorit directed it to be delivered over to his friends on condition that it should be interred on the evening of the same day, as he was aware that they were desirous of having a wake over the body, which in all probability would have occasioned a disturbance in the town at night.

A neat Coffin was provided by his friends and on the evening the corpse was followed to the grave by a numerous train.

Article1814James Thomas John Bean Jnr. was granted 80 acres of land in 1814 at Airds, near Minto, NSW, AustraliaG. In September 1824 he wrote to Sir Thomas Brisbane to say that the land was now in cultivation with the exception of a few acres and that he had fouteen head of horned cattle, and that he would request a further grant of land to support his family, which consisted of his wife and four children. He was supported in his application by William Howe and the assistant chaplain who attested to his good qualities. As Howe wrote "he and his family are remarkably industrious and respectable". Another memorial was sent on 24 November and added that he now also supported two convicts, Jacob James and John Wenham. James was successful in having his grant extended to 300 acres and received a further 200 acres in the Brisbane Waters area of Northumberland.

Article1814William received a grant of 30 acres on the recommendation of Mr Cowper in 1814.
Article21 December 1819There was much excitement when the first European families arrived to take up residence. The flat-bottomed punt laden with the settlers and their chattels was towed into Kerikeri by two Maori canoes on the morning of 21 December 1819. Those first settlers were the Rev. John Butler, his wife Hannah, their eighteen-year-old son Samuel, two-year-old daughter Hannah, and their servant Richard Russell; James and Charlotte Kemp; William and Margery Puckey, their son William Gilbert aged fourteen years and three daughters, Caroline, Elizabeth and Jane; Sarah and William Fairburn; William and Elizabeth Bean with their young son William, born in Australia in 1817 and their very young baby George Thomas, born at Rangihoua on 21 October.

     On the foreshore, near where the Tea Rooms are today, was a blacksmith's shop, 21 feet by 15 feet and a long building, 60 feet by 15 feet, designed to be a store. Charlotte and James Kemp and Francis Hall moved into the blacksmith's shop while the others, eighteen people in all, took up residence in the store. Living in such crowded and primitive conditions, carrying water from the nearby stream, cooking (at first) out of doors must have been very trying, particularly for the women. For the young mother, Elizabeth Bean, nursing a two-week old baby with another very young child, it was particularly stressful; then, some six months later their three-year-old, William, died (12 July 1820). Three months after their arrival, Sarah Fairburn was delivered of a son, Richard Alexander, on 29 March 1820.

     Two of New Zealand's oldest buildings are situated in the Kerikeri Basin. Kemp House and the Stone Store are the only survivors from the Church Missionary Society's second Anglican mission to New Zealand, founded in 1819 on land granted to the Reverend Samuel Marsden by the powerful Nga Puhi chief, Hongi Hika.

     Kemp House is the oldest surviving European building in New Zealand. The Stone Store is the country's oldest surviving stone building. Kemp House was built by the Reverend John Gare Butler in 1821-22 as a mission house. From 1824-31 the house was occupied by the lay missionary George Clarke and from mid-1832 by blacksmith and lay missionary James Kemp and his family. The mission was closed in 1848, but the Kemps stayed on, eventually buying the house from the CMS. Their descendants lived there until 1974 when Ernest Kemp presented the house and its contents to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.2
OccupationWilliam Bean was working as a carpenter as well as farming his land.
Article1824In 1824 William petitioned Sir Thomas Brisbane for an extension to his 30 acres which he had cultivated and on which he had fourteen head of horned cattle. Samuel Masden described him as an "industrious man". He was granted the extra land in July 1824.
ArticleJuly 1825William applied to Sir Thomas Brisbane in July 1825 for a building allotment to build a four room cottage near Brokenback Bridge, as he was one of the contractors for the steam engine to be erected there.
Article19 October 1831He
William was granted 80 acres at Menangle (Grant No: 509). on 19 October 1831. This property was later called "Mount View."

The Empire, Sydney, NSW, AustraliaG3 April 1860Uriah Crossley was mentioned in an article in The Empire, Sydney, NSW, AustraliaG, on Tuesday, 3 April 1860 as follows:

The Yass Courier says :-It is with much regret we record the death by drowning, of an interesting child, five years old, the son of Mr. Jeremiah Crossley, of Wargiela. It appears that on the morning of Friday, the 23rd instant, the child accompanied his sister, who is about seven years old, to head some cows, and turn them in the direction of the house. The head of the Burrowa River is in the vicinty of tho house, and the little fellow sat down at the side of the water, where his sister left him for a few minutes. On her return she saw his body floating in the river and at once ran and acquainted her mother; --Mr. Crossley being from home at the time. The anxious parent on reaching the river, found that the body had sunk; several neighbours were shortly afterwards on the spot, but the body was not recovered for some hours.3

OccupationHezekiah Crossley was a farmer and grazier.5
ArticleThe following was told to D G Bradfield in 1972 by Hezekiah's daughter, Mrs Gruber:

     Hezekiah Crossley was the youngest son of Jeremiah Crossley. He spent all of his life at Wargeila and died within a mile of where he was born. In his young days he shepherded sheep and was very fond of hunting kangaroos, native cats, possums and native bears.
     Hezekiah took up land adjoining his father's and married Sarah Ann Martin. They started their lives together in two rooms with a bark roof and earth floor. He had no education but his wife had a little and did any clerical work that had to be done.
     Quite a few people could not read so the police came around periodically and collected the returns. They usually stayed with the Crossleys for a night or two while collecting around the district.
     Hezekiah and Sarah had 12 children. As the family grew, and most people had large families, and churches were few, a minister would come from Yass to worship in Sarah Crossley's home. Eventually the house was too small and it was decided to build a Union Church on Hezekiah's property. There were three denominations. The church was built of slabs with an iron roof. He did a large room for himself used as a dining room and kitchen where they used to hold dances. His wife Sarah used to play the concertina and sometimes there would be a violin player who came to play for special ocassions.
