    William Warr BARROW
    Born circa 1806.  Lieutenant in 63
    rd Regiment.  Lieutenant Barrow applied for a first-class allotment of land at Richmond on 3rd February 1832.  Barrow stated that he proposed to erect a "stone built dwelling house of forty-five feet front and forty feet deep."  The application was approved despite Barrow's application being submitted after the new regulations prohibiting free grants were published.
    "Mr. Barrow selected the allotment to the District Surveyor, and applied to him for a Form before the new regulations were published he has therefore given this the date of that application.  The delay was caused by the Surveyor not having any Forms to furnish him with at the time."
    Barrow was appointed Superintendent at Richmond for the Roads and Bridges Department on 13th July 1832.  Died in Hobart in 1848
