Half a Thousand Acres

halfathousandacres

Peter L. Reynolds and Paul V. Flottmann

A history of the Balmain land grant.

In this book the lives and times of the two main characters concerned with the Balmain Land Grant , Dr William Balmain and Professor John Gilchrist emerge from hitherto obscurity and become clearly defined by the authors’ painstaking research.

The real substance of the book, however, lies in the posthumous effect of the two significant legal actions made in their lifetimes; one, the recipient and transfer of “Half a Thousand Acres” and the other, the execution of their wills.

Limited copies.
