Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Stuart Hepburn was an early pastoralist and landholder in Victoria, Australia. Hepburn was born in Scotland in 1800. He initially became a seafaring man and progressed to become a Master of a 226 ton brig, The Alice. In 1835 the Alice sailed for Hobart. On board was John Gardiner, an ex banker, who talked Hepburn into joining him in a Pastoral business. Hepburn joined John Gardiner and Joseph Hawdon in a venture to overland cattle to Port Phillip. The overlanding trip was successful. Hepburn met up with Captain John Coghill and his brother William. The brothers were settled at Kirkham and Stathellen near Braidwood, New South Wales. In 1837 Hepburn and William Coghill became partners in a plan to overland 1400 ewes, 50 rams and 200 wethers to central Victoria. On the 15th January 1838 the party left Strathallen for Victoria
