    History & Achievements :
     
  •  Major Henry Robert Oakes originally settled in Tasmania in the early 1800's maybe sometime in the 1830's not completely sure - I believe he was posted there.  He had previously been in Madras, India.  He then went onto the Macleay River in NSW where in the late1830's he was made the first Commissioner for Crown lands of the Macleay River.
