    Notes 
    • James Nash was born in 1836 at the farm of his parents George Nash and Mary Lees in the Parish of Londonderry, north-east of Castlereagh NSW. He relocated to Windsor with his family in the late 1840’s where he was apparently apprenticed to a blacksmith. In 1860 he married Mary Ann Drayton (c1841-1922) at Windsor. Mary Ann Drayton was the daughter of William Drayton and his wife Harriet Winter of Barrington parish, County Somerset, England. The Drayton family had emigrated to NSW on board the Bolton in 1853 and settled in Richmond.

      James and Mary Ann Nash settled initially at South Creek [St Mary's] near Penrith where James' brothers, George and Samuel, were also residing. In 1861 they travelled across the Blue Mountains to Hartley where other members of the Nash family had settled. In the mid-1860’s they relocated to Rylstone near Mudgee where they remained until their deaths in the early 1920's

      Surviving records indicate that James worked as a blacksmith throughout these years., although he was also recorded as a coachbuilder on his death certificate. He purchased numerous properties in Rylstone and the cottage he built on one of these properties was later to become the well-known "Show Cottage".

      James died at Rylstone in 1921. His widow Mary Ann moved to Sydney shortly afterwards where she died in 1922. Both were buried in Rylstone Cemetery.
