ArticleAmong other things, George occasionally sank dams. George had his own system for measuring dams. On one occasion a dam George had sunk was thought not to be the correct size, but after Teddy Davidson, the manager of Bendenine, and a Mr. de Mestre, the owner of a nearby property, examined it, the dam was found to be correctly proportioned.
     In 1907 George Wales acquired his own property and at Hassalls Creek near Bowning. He and his wife Mary moved their family from Bendenine to Hassells Creek in sulkies. The sulkies were, however, so crammed full of belongings that George's children Rene and Joe walked along behind the sulkies to their new home.
     At Hassells Creek the Wales children attended a subsidised school on the property of their neighbours, the McInerney family. This arrangement came to an end when Miss McInerney, the teacher, left to become a nurse.
     In May 1910 the Wales family gathered on their verandah to witness Halley's Comet. Years later Rene Wales recalled how the comet was visible during the day and completely lit-up the sky at night casting something akin to moonbeams upon the earth.
     George was understandably concerned about bush fires and so he purchased a Furphy water tank to protect his house.
     George was very successful on his property. In 1915 his property, which comprised 597 acres, was running 4 horses, 5 Cattle, and 100 sheep. By 1927 the property was running 6 Horses, 2 Cattle, and 362 sheep. George's obvious success with sheep led to him being awarded a cup inscribed as follows:

Cup donated by H.J. Wilson for the champion fleece of wool in the Yass/Bowning District.

Judged by Mr Coleman, Government Wool Expert.
Awarded to George Wales, Bowning, February 1927.

     Also in 1927 George Wales was taught to drive a car by Charlie Winters of Bowning. George then bought a 1927 chevrolet, one of the earliest cars in the Bowning district.
     In 1932 George's property was running 5 horses, 4 cattle, and 400 sheep. This was proving too much for George and so in 1935 George sold his property to Sir Walter Merriman and retired with his wife, Mary, to Boorowa where George had bought a house in Brial Street. George also bought a block of land at 83 Marsden Street Boorowa on which he had a house built. He subsequently rented this house to various tenants. After his death the house was sold to the Murphy family.
     George's wife Mary was a great supporter of fetes run to aid the local Catholic church and school. She excelled in making sweets such as Turkish delight and coconut ice, but George was always good humoured about the large amounts of sugar, jelly etc. that appeared on the grocery bills.
     George took a great interest in cricket and frequently attended matches in Boorowa with his friends: Michael Hyde; Bert Flannery, a grazier; Patrick Slattery, the local station master; and Joseph Mockbell, a wool, hides and skins dealer. George also attended football games but his first love was cricket.
     In 1942 Darwin was bombed by the Japanese, and fearing a Japanese attack various precautions were taken. George, as part of these precautions, dug slit trenches at Boorowa's Catholic School in which, in the event of an air raid, the children and nuns would seek protection.1
OccupationJoseph William Martin Jnr. was a farmer and grazier.1
