History & Achievements:

 
Abraham Jarrett served with the 57th West Middlesex Regiment in Sydney and Parramatta and at the end of 1830 when the Regiment went to India transferred to 17th Leicestershire Regiment serving in Sydney and Moreton Bay.  He returned to Sydney in July 1835 when he got his discharge. He received a gratuity of 6ms pay of 9 pounds 2 shillings and 6 pence, which was an indulgence for good service  during 16 years.  He was on the pay-roll as a Police Constable in 1839 before taking up residence in Queanbeyan where he died.
  The DC of Abraham states he was born at Gravesend, England, but Enlistment papers say "Parish Tudeley, County Kent".   The night Abraham Jarrett died in Queanbeyan the bell tolled, as he was the oldest resident of the town.
