    • Notes from Margaret Barnes
      Tithe Aplotment Magheraculmoney 1828 - Robert Morrow 9 acres, Quality 5, Value per acre 20/-

      Robert Morrow had married a cousin Fanny about 1822 and they had 6 children. Robert's second marriage was to another cousin Arabella Armstrong. She was a daughter of Christopher, the third child of Robert and Isabella Armstrong of Correlurgh and his wife Susan Morrow of Pettigo. It is thought that Susan may have been a sister of Robert's father, Henry Morrow.

      Robert Morrow acquired property in Australia under the old grant system more than ten times the 9 acres he had farmed at Kesh. His property was on the edge of two huge portions which had been granted to Alexander Berry. No. 142 66 acres 2 roods 28 perches and No. 143 66 acres. On Robert's death in 1882 the two blocks were valued for Probate at 2,606 pounds. No. 142 was left to daughter Elizabeth and her husband Thomas Moffitt. No. 143 which contained the residence 'Clear View' was left to Richard. Louisa and Caroline dessed for their weddings at 'Clear View'. [2]
    • There are some records on Ancestry for a Robert Morrow as a licensed publican around 1855-56 in Parramatta and Camperdown - don't know if this has anything to do with our Robert Morrow
