Summary: The thesis begins with William, Agnes, John and Charlie, four THOMSON siblings
from Kilmarnock, a Scottish town well known for its woollen carpets and spirits
? industries their parents? families had been associated with for generations. This
is the story of their arrival in the soon to be Colony of Queensland and the areas
that became known as Central and North Queensland.
Agnes was 21 years when she arrived with her husband John SCOTT on New Year?s
Day in 1853 ? just six months after their marriage. With them came her brother
William, the oldest of the four siblings, and together they started the Palm Tree
Creek Station on the Dawson River. William later had a business partnership
with their brother Charlie, the youngest sibling, who became well regarded in
the primary industries sector. William eventually married his first wife Mary
Clara COLEY, but Charlie remained single. John was the only one to arrive with a
young family. He had already moved to England and married, starting a family
prior his arrival in Queensland. He lived a few short years in the Colony before
his untimely death, leaving his wife Sarah Jane with their four young children;
she remarried John Bacey ISLEY, a Police Inspector and Crown Lands Ranger.
From politics to business, family tragedies and scandal, from the country to the
city their stories and those across the next two and three generations, played out
against the backdrop of a changing land, time and attitudes.
