The Wyndham and Glennie Families

These papers relate primarily to the Wyndham Family who settled at Dalwood near Branxton in 1828, planting vineyards on the bank of the Hunter River, commencing farming, and building a stone house with Doric columns. George Wyndham, an admirer of Byron, had visited Italy in 1825. The Wyndhams acquired other extensive lands on the Hunter and on the Richmond and Macintyre Rivers.

The Wyndham Family records are amongst the oldest surviving records of farming in Australia, and include, as well as farming and Bible notes, a detailed record of cattle musters on the Macintyre River from 1839 - 1842.

The papers of the Glennie Family were given to The University of Newcastle Archives together with those of the Wyndhams. These papers are believed to relate to the family of the pioneer Anglican clergyman, the Rev. Alfred Glennie of Brisbane Water and Lochinvar, whose diaries were published by the Gosford District Local History Study Group in 1987.
