      Early Forbes Reminiscences

      .....the three Stricklands, Pierce (father) Josiah and John (sons) had struck a reef between here and Forbes in the vicinity of Newell's Dam at Daroobalgie, where a man named Chalmers erected a big crushing plant and another Scott, built an hotel. The Stricklands sold out to Chalmers for 750 pounds and Mr. Josiah Strickland and Mr. Harris went on prospecting to where the village of Tichborne was established in the vicinity of the bridge which now spans the creek and Mr. Strickland returned to Strickland's reef for provisions. He did not return next day and Mr. Harris set out for him only to find he offered to act as a guide of a party in which Captain Brown, King and others had set out for the Bogan where a gold discovery had been reported... subsequently the partnership broke up.

      THE TOWN AND DISTRICT OF FORBES

      The new land registration os 1861 provided for free selection before survey by which means a man might select from 40 to 320 acres of land anywhere at the purchase price of one pound per acre. This brought new troubles to the squatters who had been operating over vast areas of Government land on the best of his land... George Rankin of "Bugabagil" , Josiah Strickland of "Bundaburra" , "Boyd" and Weelong Stations and P. & J. Collits.
      Josiah Strickland turned the advent of the gold diggers to some advantage by supplying them with meat, dairy produce and other food stuffs from "Bundaburra" but all those who came to the gold fields not all came to dig gold.
      The first Anglican church of St. John's was of timber built on land given by Josiah Strickland, who also provided 500 pounds for the Building Fund. This was replaced in 1875 with the present freestone church
