Pioneers of Glenthorne Mr Thomas Duncan TROTTER (son of Isabella nee McCALLUM and Thomas TROTTER junior) Mrs Thomas TROTTER junior (nee Isabella McCALLUM)

PIONEER OF GLENTHORNE Mr Thomas Duncan Trotter In the year 1794 Mr. Thomas Trotter Snr, the grandfather of the late Thomas Duncan Trotter, was born near Perth, on the Firth of Tay, Scotland, and from various records, traced the history of the intervening years as reflected in this family, to the present day. Thomas Trotter Snr., who was one of the earliest settlers of Glenthorne, and whose many descendants are scattered all over the district, and in various parts of the state, was a very methodical man, and when he went on board a sailing ship, from Ireland, with his wife and family, to seek his fortune in the great South land known as Australia, he took with him a leather bound book, in which he recorded the events of the trip, and later kept another book, in which are noted some of the happenings on the Manning in the early days. He was an expert penman and diarist, and although it is 67 years since he was laid to rest in the Dawson Cemetery, and one of these books is 109 years old, his diaries are still well preserved. We propose to publish some extracts from these interesting books which will serve to show the present generation the difficulties with which their forefathers successfully contended and which will forcefully illustrate the comforts and conveniences, which in the course of a single century, have come to their present day lives. As quite a young man, Thomas Trotter Snr., showed a great interest in horticulture, and nursery work, and was sent to England, where he underwent a thorough training in these subjects, some of the botanical text books being preserved to the present time. From England, he went to the North of Wales, where he married Mary Tilston in 1817, and settled down for 18 years. It was at this time that he came under the influence of the Methodist revival, which swept Wales, and thus the religious convictions of the family were established. From Wales he crossed the channel to Ireland. It was here that the urge to emigrate to Australia came to him, no doubt helped by letters from his oldest son John, who was an adventurous youth and had already made the voyage acting as a valet in Bishop Broughton’s household. The father had a desire to rejoin his first born in his new venture, and the opportunity came unexpectedly. He was acquainted with Mr. Boydell, a shareholder and one of the officials of the Australian Agricultural Company, and some of whose descendants are now living in the Paterson River District. From Mr. Doydell a letter was received, asking Thomas Trotter to come to Australia to out orchards for the Company. The writer stated he would make it worth Mr. Trotter’s while and would also lease him land to make a start for himself. That settled it. Mr. Trotter, who was then 42 years of age, with a family of six at home, including an infant, forthwith made his arrangements and decided to come out. Thomas Trotter Jnr., (mentioned in the diary) was then a lad 14 years of age. On arrival, the family went to the Dungog District, settling in the locality of Brandon Grove, later moving to the upper part of the Williams River, at Chichester, where the land was eminently suitable for fruit growing. His son John was also working on his own account in the same district and Thomas also struck out for himself at an early age, the two latter being engaged largely in the cultivation of tobacco, which proved to be a highly profitable venture. It was while here that further opportunity came to Thomas Trotter Snr. He was stationed at Canongalla, and with Mr. William Plummer (of the Manning River) on the 21st October 1851, purchased jointly the “Glenthorne Estate” of 647 acres, from James Corlette, for the sum of £250. Corlette had previously bought the land from the Crown at public auction, in 1841, for the sum of £388/4/0. On 16th December 1852, Thomas Trotter and William Plummer subdivided the Estate and portions were sold to James Robinson, Robert Belford and Alfred Blackford. Thomas Trotter Snr. And his sons retained the remainder as homes for themselves.

It was while at Gresford, in the Allyn River district, that Thomas Trotter Jnr., was married to Isabella McCallum, in 1845, and Thomas Duncan Trotter was born on 15th October 1847, and at the age of 8 years set forth, with his parents and his uncle John, for what proved to be his home for almost 90 years, at Glenthorne, until his death on 11th February last.

The removal of these families to Glenthorne was a most trying ordeal in itself. For a great part of the district the road consisted of little more than a bridle track, and the first arrivals had to travel to Redbank, parts of which were already settled, notably a butchery business of Charles Turner, who lived on the river bank almost opposite Glenthorne, and who had secure and well grassed paddocks. From here, the first to arrive were conveyed by boat to Glenthorne. Thomas Trotter Jnr., his family, and his brother John undertook the journey by bullock dray, having laid in a stock of provision which they considered ample. Young Thomas Duncan, rode a horse the whole distance, even at that age, showing keen appreciation of a good horse. The party had many difficulties, in many places tracks and detours had to be cut, rivers were flooded and days were lost waiting for them to recede, and it was only after weeks of toil and anxiety, and with dwindling stores, that at last they arrived at the promised land.

Thomas Trotter Snr. (now 61 years of age) with his sons William and Samuel, Robert Belford and Alfred Blackford had arrived shortly before. Thomas Trotter Snr. had not neglected to bring many seedlings and grafted trees, as well as seeds, with him and one of the first duties on his own and his sons’ homesteads, was the planting of an orchard on the newly cleared land, in which oranges predominated, and for 50 years Glenthorne was noted for its oranges. Manning River Times 1935.

MRS THOMAS TROTTER After an illness of only a few days, from peritonitis, Mrs Thomas Trotter, of Glenthorne, breathed her last at 8 o’clock on Friday night, at the ripe old ageof 80 years. About eight months subsequent to the demise of her respected husband. The deceased lady was a very old resident of the district, having arrived here some 50 years ago. She was born in Arygleshire, Isle of Mull, in the year 1820, her maiden name being Isabella McCallum. She came to Australia in the year 1841 in the ship Sir John Falstaff, the voyage occupying nearly six months! She was then housekeeper to Bishop Broughton for four years, when she became the wife of the late Mr. Thomas Trotter, being married at Gresford. The Bishop, when she left him, presented her with a number of good useful books, upon which she always set great store. The late Mrs. Trotter was one of the most unselfish of women, and was very highly esteemed by all who knew her on this account and because of the grand Christian character which pervaded all her actions. Two sons and two daughters are left to mourn their loss, namely, Messrs, T.D. and John Trotter and Mrs Alexander Lobban and Mrs. W J Belford, besides a number of grandchildren and numerous relatives. The funeral took place at the Gilwarra Cemetery Manning River Times 28th March 1900
