George Martyr emigrated as a free man (came free) about 1841. He was born in 1819, the son of a Kentish builder who he was named after. His father George Martyr’s (1786-1852) family included other builders and engineers. George became well-known in the Goulburn area, working as a Superintendent, Surveyor, Land Agent, Journalist, Town Clerk, Alderman, and Publican[1]

George married Alicia Griselda Pentland in 1848 in Sydney. She was the daughter of the Reverend Francis Pentland of Rathmanee, County Wexford, Ireland. Born in about 1820, she emigrated as a free woman at age 19 years. They settled at the historic Richlands property at Taralga, about 50 kms north of Goulburn.

Reference to George and family can be found in the history of the Richlands Homestead......

Richlands is a footnote in the renowned history of Captain John and Elizabeth Macarthur and their family, and was established as an outstation a day's ride west of the Macarthurs' main residence at Camden Park. County Argyle in NSW was named by Lachlan Macquarie during his 1820 inspection of newly discovered grazing lands south of Sydney. It comprises a strip of sparsely wooded upland country from the Tarlo River rising to Australia's Great Dividing Range. Richlands homestead is situated on the Range 50 km north of Goulburn, 30km due west of Bowral and 10 km north of Taralga, at the junction of Oberon and Wombeyan roads.

Under the control of the Macarthur sons, the estate was at its most extensive in the early 1840s and comprised 38,000 acres of prime grazing land including the present township of Taralga and all farmed country to the north. Grain, wool and tobacco were produced with Richlands wheat fetching premium prices in Sydney.

By 1845 work had commenced using bricks fired on site on a more conventional late Georgian residence for the new estate manager. George Martyr, freshly recruited from England, married in Sydney before taking up the position in 1848. Like the Dennings before them the Martyrs raised a family at Richlands but in more style, sufficient to accommodate monthly Church of England services. For thirty years from 1860 the homestead was occupied by leaseholders.

Following his time at Richlands, George commenced a surveying company in Goulburn.

SEVERE ACCIDENT—On Wednesday afternoon, while the Anglican Bishops of Sydney and Melbourne were being escorted into Goulburn, a painful mishap occurred.
Mr. George Martyr was riding in the procession, and as it neared the Fitzroy Bridge, hearing that all the horse-men were to proceed to the front, he endeavoured to get ahead of the carriages, but his horse became rather restive, and coming on the bridge it was tripped by a dog, and fell, throwing Mr. Martyr, whose leg either became entangled with, or was run over by, the wheel of Mr. J. Cann's waggonette. The vehicle was at once stopped, but unfortunately Mr. Martyr's leg was broken. Dr. Waugh set the limb, two bones of which were fractured, and the sufferer is now progressing as well as can be expected—Southern Argus, Nov. 13.

Local texts such as the Goulburn & District Historical Society bulletins, and R.T. Wyatt's "History of Goulburn" (1941), confirm that George Martyr was Town Clerk of Goulburn for a period during 1870. Wyatt also provides the following detail about him: George Martyr was at one time reporter on the Goulburn Herald [newspaper]. He was appointed Editor of the EPP [Goulburn Evening Penny Post newspaper] in 1879 (p.235). And on p.317: George Martyr (born Greenwich, England, 1819) came to this district as superintendent of the Macarthur's estate, Richlands, Taralga in 1847. About 1860 he began practice in Goulburn as a surveyor and land agent. He was secretary to the Volunteer Corps for many years and an alderman of the city. The saleyards were planned by him. He died on the 4/9/1881. He apparently assisted in judging the ploughing match at the first A&P Society Show 1857 (pp.346-7).

George married Alicia Griselda Pentland in 1848. She had come from Ireland, where her father was an Anglican minister[3]. George and his wife are buried in St.Saviour’s cemetery (Anglican), Goulburn, with a monument inscribed: George MARTYR, died 14 Sep 1881 aged 61 years. Alicia Griselda MARTYR, wife of George MARTYR, died 16 May 1876 aged 56 years. They are also commemorated through the naming of Martyr Street, Goulburn.

CONDITIONAL PURCHASES BY LAND
AGENTS.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.
Sir,—In Your issue of the 1st instant I notice a letter
signed "Subscriber," having reference to the subject
above mentioned, in which my name is made use of. I
must therefore ask you to grant me also a small space to
make a few remarks upon the same subject. I have been
acting as a land agent in Goulburn from nearly the com-
mencement of free selection, and, as is well known, my
knowledge of the Land Acts, their regulations and working
is pretty extensive, at any rate quite as much so as that of
"Subscriber," who evidently simply jumped at conclusions
without taking the trouble to ascertain whether they had
any foundation. Let me, then, analyse his letter. First of all,
he refers to a paragraph in your issue of December 22,
which, he says, states "that a decision had been given in
the Lands Department, authorizing the making of addi-
ional conditional purchases by agents." Now, if my
memory serves me right, as I have not the paper before
me, the paragraph was copied from the Goulburn papers,
and was simply a copy of a letter received from the Lands
Department in reply to a question from me as to why the
Crown lands agent at Goulburn should be allowed to
compel personal attendance on the part of every
selector, whether taking up land under the 13th or the
21st clause. It may perhaps be called a decision,
inasmuch as it authorised the Crown Land agent to
dispense with personal attendance under certain
conditions. "Subscriber" goes on to say: "The custom
has been in vogue since a short time subsequent to
the passing of the Land Act of 1875."I am well aware
such was the custom (whether lagal or not is another
question) at the varions offices around Goulburn, and
I have availed myself frequently of such custom :
but I deny that "instructions were issued by the Minister for
Lands to Crown lands agents to receive them " (i.e., appli-
cations by agents). At any rate, no such instructions were
ever forwarded to the Crown lands agent at Goulburn, who
has always refused to acknowledge any but personal appli-
cations, till after I received the letter alluded to above. I
may mention that over eighteen months ago I wrote twice
to the Department of Lands upon this subject, and failed
to get any reply ; nor do I think I would have got the one I
did except through the exertions of our country member.
"Subscriber" says: "Mr. Martyr has discovered this
decision late in the day." I can only say again that no
such decision has ever been arrived at, that is that no
circular to the effect that agants could select under the
21st section has over been sent to the Crown lands agents,
most assuredly not to the Goulburn land agent. And it this
"decision" was arrived at and other agents notified, why was
the agent of so important a district as Goulburn not
instructed to the same effect? The real fact is this, no
Minister for Lands would take upon himself to issue a
general order, or make a regulation which can hardly
be looked upon as in accordance with the Act. The
wording of the 7th clause of the Amended Act of 1875
is as follows:—"Every application for a conditional
purchase must be tendered in person by the applicant
to the lands agent in the district." Now, anyone able to
read and understand English can hardly misconcieve
the meaning of these words ; and as every selection,
under whatever clause it may be taken, is to all intents
and purposes a conditional purchase, it is clear that the
Crown lands agent at Goulburn exercised a proper discretion
in refusing to take any but "personal applications." For
my own part I can only read the clause in the same light
as he did, and though upon finding that agents in other
districts were allowed to select I took steps to ondeavour
to inaugurate the same state of affairs in Goulburn, I still
consider that such selections by agents are illegal, and
it will be necessary ere long, in order, perhaps, to settle
some dispute, to pass a short Act to legalize them.
With the 7th clause standing as quoted above, and in
the absence of any regulation sanctioned by the Executive
bearing upon the subject, it is difficult to recognise the
legality of the course now pursued, or to understand
how an agent can be allowed to go to the ballot in the
case of the same portion of land being applied for by
him and an applicant in parson. It is certainly a very
grave question whether in any case personal application
should be deemed necessary, and can only be so in
order to ascertain whether the applicant is really 16
years of age ; but having once made a selection and his age
ascertained, it becomes a very great hardship for a man to
be compelled to attend teh Land Office week after week to
select additional portions, when an agent could do it for him.
In the Land Office at Goulburn, lately, a man over 70 years
of age had to ride about four hundred miles to make five
additional conditional purchases, and this is not a
solitary instance. The selection by agents, whether legal
or not, is a great advantage to the selector, and steps should
at once be taken to ascertain the legality of such selections,
and, if necessary, to make them legal. I am, &c.,
GEORGE MARTYR.

Thursday 15 September 1881, Page 2:

IT is with feelings of unfeigned sorrow that we have to record the death of Mr. George Martyr, who for many years has been a resident of the district and known as a surveyor and land agent. He died at his residence, Reynolds-street, yesterday at one p.m. The deceased was a native of Greenwich, England, and at one time he superintended the Richlands Estate, Taralga. On land matters he was a recognised authority by selectors and squatters, and his advice on this question was often sought after by all classes, and generally acted upon. In public affairs Mr. Martyr always took an active part, and occupied the position of alderman for a number of years. The cattle sale- yards, that have been the subject of so many favourable comments by visitors, are due to his planning. In addition to his other duties, he for some time was connected with the Herald and also with this journal. A few weeks ago he went out to Wheeo to perform a job of surveying, and being rather damp as well as very cold weather, he complained on his return of a severe cold, which settled on his kidneys and lungs. When we visited deceased the other day he had hopes of soon being about again; at that time his breathing was difficult, and he was suffering severe pain. He gradually grew weaker and died from the effects of the severe cold he had caught. His age was 62 and he was a widower; he will be deeply regretted by all who knew him. His funeral will take place on Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock.

GONE.-Since my last death has claimed three victims from our midst. Mr. G. Martyr, an old and respected resident, who has acted as surveyor and free selectors' agent for years past, besides being an alderman and prominent member of the volunteer force, joined the majority on Thursday last. Mr. Gore, a very respected young gentleman engaged in the law under J. T. Gannon. Esq., and Mr. Cane, were interred in the Church of England cemetery to-day; both much regretted.

PARRAMATTA.
EXPLORATORY EXPEDITION.
THE expedition for the purpose of following
down the Victoria River, with a view of discovering its embouchure, from the point at which Sir Thomas Mitchell returned, reached Parramatta from Sydney, in the course of Saturday, and camped in the Government Domain, and would, as was intended, have started yesterday (Monday) but from the untoward occurrence of the Sydney Police having at an early hour of the morning taken in charge one of the men attached to it, named Douglas, on a charge of being somewhat implicated in the late forgeries on the Commercial Bank. Only eight individuals, including Mr. Kennedy, the officer in charge ; Mr. J. J. Martyr, assistant- surveyor; and Mr. Wall, the naturalist, are engaged in this expedition, and of which number Mr. Kennedy and two of the men were with the Surveyor-General on his late travels. The equipment consists of two drays, three tents, and twenty horses. It is not purposed, so the writer was informed, that any cattle for food should accompany the expedition, but that the explorers should rely for animal nutriment on their guns and fishing nets, and a plentiful supply of flour, tea, sugar, and tobacco, sufficient to last the period the party will be out, which is calculated at fourteen months, being procured from the last station beyond the boundaries of location. The route purposed to be taken by the expedition, is the Great Northern Road, and across the Wollombi, by the mountain passes to Liverpool Plains, and which it is opined will be for many months to come the most serious portion of the journey, as, when once fairly on the route for the Victoria, the road for about a thousand miles, to the point where Sir Thomas turned, is said to be one along which a carriage might with perfect security be driven.
[The man referred to as having been brought to Sydney, was discharged, he not being the party described.]

GOLD.
(From the Goulburn Herald, August 30.)
Mr. J. J. Martyr, the surveyor, who returned to town yesterday from a visit to the Shoalhaven Gullies, informs us that Wallis's party have been getting an ounce of gold a day since they set in working on the bar, mentioned in one of our late issues. The party consists of six, but only four have lately been able to work, the other two being laid up. Mr. Duguid and a party of twelve arrived at the Gullies from Sydney before Mr. Martyr left; they intended to set into work. The gold found consists of coarse grain, and some adhering to quartz. The river was fast rising, but the diggings being far above high-water mark, no inconvenience was felt.
By a private letter from Braidwood, it appears that gold has been found in abundance within twenty miles of that township. The writer does not mention the exact locality, but from our knowledge of him we are led to place implicit confidence in his statement. He says, " We have got gold about twenty miles from Braidwood, it was first found on Friday week (the letter is dated the 25th). I know of a person who got fifteen shillings worth last Monday with a tin dish: the diggers can average from 10s. to 15s. a day. At present there are about 50 persons at the diggings.
The gold that I have seen is fine dust. I have seen half an ounce that was procured on Saturday by a party of three, in six hours. You can depend upon this as being the truth."

THE BRAIDWOOD DIGGINGS.
(From the Empire. )
BELL'S CREEK, BRAIDWOOD, 21ST DEC, 1851. - Since my last communication, fresh diggings have been opened on the flat at the middle part of this creek, near the boundary of Dr. Bell's purchased land. As to the success of the diggers generally, I have to report favourably. The lower part of the creek is, in a great measure deserted, on account of the banks having been worked out, and the flooded state of the bed precluding operations for the present. Between the junction and Bell's boundary line are located some hundreds of persons. All appear to be doing well. Now lan's party got 16 ounces on Friday, and 20 ounces yesterday. They have gone to a depth of 25 feet, and are compelled to use a pump. Another party at the junction got 32 ounces one day last week, and have had great, though not such great success since. The flat I have spoken of as the new diggings is limited in extent, and has not as yet had a fair trial. One company took out 17 ounces in one day, but they have had hard work and plenty of water. At Point Perseverance, the lowermost point of the flat, a party, consisting of Messrs. Poison, Hillyard, Carson, Clowry, and Short, opened a claim on Thursday last, and on Friday got down to the auriferous stratum. After rocking the cradle for two hours and a half, they procured between six and seven ounces of gold. The vein, as it is called, appears to be exceedingly rich. Mr. Poison took up a handful from near the top and found the earth actually yellow with the precious metal. I was over at Major's Creek on Sunday last. There is not much doing there, as many of the holes have been flooded by the recent rains, and the owners intending to return to their respective homes at Christmas, do not consider it worth while to bail out the water till they return. Mr. J. J. Martyr, in conjunction with Mr. Wallis, has purchased a number of valuable claims during the past week: I understand the purchase money came to £450. At both diggings matters are going on very orderly, and although there is a considerable police force on the ground their interference is rarely required. I would mention before I close this rambling letter that many persons are in the habit of forwarding gold by private hand instead of by the government escort. I am aware of several consider able remittances being made in this way.

CRICKET - THE GOULBURN CRICKET CLUB.
A meeting of gentlemen interested in the formation of a cricket club, bearing the above designation, was held on Tuesday evening last, at Mr Gillard's, Horse and Jockey Inn. There were nearly a dozen persons present, all of whom have enrolled their names as members, and from the acknowledged skill of several of the gentlemen present, as cricketers, we confidently hope and expect that this club will yet rival any other in the colony. Arrangements were entered into for providing the necessary furniture, such as bats, balls, wickets, &c. It was also unanimously carried that the secretary, Mr. J. J. Martyr, make application to the local authorities for the use of a part of the Government Reserve as a cricket ground, to which request we sincerely hope the authorities will accede, not only on account of the manly and athletic game which it will tend to promote, but also as a public resort for recreation, a most desirable object, as we believe no other town in New South Wales stands more in need of such a place of recreation. After the appointment of officers, a vote of thanks was passed to Mr D. S. Miles for his able and efficient conduct in the chair, and the meeting adjourned until next Monday evening, when it is presumed the day will be definitely fixed for the first meeting to come off on the ground. We wish the Goulburn cricketers every success.

CRICKET - THE GOULBURN CRICKET CLUB.
A meeting of gentlemen interested in the formation of a cricket club, bearing the above designation, was held on Tuesday evening last, at Mr Gillard's, Horse and Jockey Inn. There were nearly a dozen persons present, all of whom have enrolled their names as members, and from the acknowledged skill of several of the gentlemen present, as cricketers, we confidently hope and expect that this club will yet rival any other in the colony. Arrangements were entered into for providing the necessary furniture, such as bats, balls, wickets, &c. It was also unanimously carried that the secretary, Mr. J. J. Martyr, make application to the local authorities for the use of a part of the Government Reserve as a cricket ground, to which request we sincerely hope the authorities will accede, not only on account of the manly and athletic game which it will tend to promote, but also as a public resort for recreation, a most desirable object, as we believe no other town in New South Wales stands more in need of such a place of recreation. After the appointment of officers, a vote of thanks was passed to Mr D. S. Miles for his able and efficient conduct in the chair, and the meeting adjourned until next Monday evening, when it is presumed the day will be definitely fixed for the first meeting to come of on the ground. We wish the Goulburn cricketers every succcss.

[The name, or relationship, of the informant may not be correct as Mary Ann MARTER (nee HART)'s daughter, Violet L SCOTT, was not born until 1910, 2 years after her Grandmother's death. It is possible that as Francis Thomas SCOTT married Marian Mary MARTER - the deceased's daughter, that he had a sister named Violet SCOTT.
