    Notes 
    • Both his parents were first fleeters.

      George Nash was born in 1797 at Mulgrave Place [Windsor NSW] to William Nash and Maria Haynes. He spent his youth in the Castlereagh district with his mother and “step-father” Robert Guy, before being employed in 1815 by Sydney businessman, Henry Marr. George remained in Marr's employ until 1823/4 when he returned to the Castlereagh district to claim a land grant he had been promised in 1821. His 60-acre grant in the parish of Londonderry north-east of Castlereagh was surveyed in 1826 and remained in George’s possession until 1855.

      In 1826 George married Mary Lees (1809-1877), the daughter of John Lees and Mary Stevens. John Lees arrived as a private in the NSW Corps on board the Ganges in 1797 and became a prominent Wesleyan, building the first Wesleyan chapel in NSW two decades later. Mary Stevens arrived as a convict per Earl Cornwallis in 1801.

      The Nash family remained in the Castlereagh district until 1848, farming George’s land along with 40 acres they had purchased from their neighbour James Comer in 1833. After leaving Castlereagh they settled in the nearby Windsor district for a few years before travelling across the Blue Mountains to the village of Hartley.

      Hartley was one of the thriving districts of NSW in the 1850’s and 1860’s. George worked there as a innkeeper, farmer and carrier until the mid-1860’s when he and his wife headed north to the Inverell district. They apparently settled on land selected by their son John Nash on the McIntyre River at Brodies Plains south-east of Inverell. George died at Brodies Plain in 1870 and Mary in 1877. The Nash farm at Brodies Plains passed out of the family’s hands in 1885.
