Recieved a grant of land at Bankstown of 100 acres and a grant of 150 acres at Mulgrave Park. Served in Sydney and Norfolk Island.  According to Mollie Gillen's book and others, Stephen had a land grant at Ball's Ball, Norfolk Island (while a free settler between Marines and Corps), although records do not show this, so it may have been in partnership.  Stephen land in partnership with 3 other ex-Marines in Mulgrave Place (Hawkesbury) and also in partnership with MURPHY, Michael, at Bankstown.   Died in 1799 - no detail found.   The combined 200 acres owned by Stephen Gilbert and MURPHY, Michael, at Bankstown was sold after Stephen's untimely death to Matthew Flinders
