Details: Singleton s oldest inhabitant, Mr. John Wilson, sen., died yesterday, at the age of 94 years. He arrived with his wife at Sydney in the ship Adam Lodge in 1837, after a passage of three months and 13 days. After serving with Dr. Bowman at Ravensworth for five years he went to Singleton in 1843, and had resided there ever since. At that time the houses in the town were very few. Macquarie Place, owned by the, Browne family, was the most important building, serving the purpose of hotel, court house, and church. George-street was the main north road. There were no schools when Mr. Wilson settled in Singleton, but shortly after Anglican and Presbyterian edifices were erected, and two schools opened in Hunter-street. In the same street Lloyd and Russell kept a store. The latter was father of Mr. H. C. Russell, late Government Astronomer. Nearly the whole area of the district was under cultivation, wheat being the main crop. Convicts were employed at Glendon, Rosemount, and Ravensworth. For some years Mr. Wilson carried on business as a carrier, and conveyed thousands of tons of loading from Singleton up as far as Inverell, and brought back wool and other products.. His descendants number 5 children, 52 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great-grandchildren. Mrs. Wilson died in 1899, at the age of 84
