Mount Barker Township Allotment Details

The following information gives details of the early ownership of the individual allotments created for the township of Mount Barker in South Australia. 

This information is based on material researched and compiled by Reg Butler (Hahndorf Historian) over a considerable period of time (with some later modifications and additions by Tony Finnis), and reproduced with permission.

Mount Barker Special Survey

The Mount Barker Special Survey Land Grant was given to William Hampden Dutton under the hands and seal of George Gawler, Commissioner of Public Lands for the Colony of South Australia on 3 July 1840.  This Deed, after reciting the Authority of the Commissioner, set out that a sum of £4,000 had been paid in advance to the Treasurer on 11 January 1839.  The Land Grant was originally held by William Hampden Dutton on behalf of the partnership of himself, Duncan Macfarlane and John Finnis.

Mount Barker North Allotments (Section 4478)

In the ballot held by the Special Survey partners on 28 September 1840, Section 4478 had been appropriated by William H Dutton, Section 4483 by Duncan Macfarlane, and Section 4484 by Capt. John Finnis as the original owners.  Subsequently, Archibald Walker merchant Fort St, Sydney gained possession of the Sections when he foreclosed on outstanding loans.

In August 1853, John Dunn the Elder - miller of Mt Barker, purchased Sections 4478, 4483, and 4484 from Archibald Walker for £1,500.  These 80 acre Sections were located north of the township with Section 4478 being directly next to Section 4477 which formed part of the existing township.

In 1854, John Dunn the Elder sub-divided Section 4478 (Hundred of Macclesfield) to form Mount Barker North (an extension of the existing township) which he then put up for sale.
