    History & Achievements :
    An application by Benjamin Morris and his mother-in-law Elizabeth Robins for a town allotment on which to build 2 cottages.    The date is difficult to decipher but appears to be 14 July 1823.   The land is situated on the Newtown road Hobart Town.    The certification by a reputable citizen states that Benjamin was formerly a map(?) sergeant of the 46th Regiment and a man of sober and industrious habits.
