    History & Achievements :

    James Kingaby signed up in one of the three veterans companies formed for service in NSW in 1825 ( he was a Chelsea Pensioner) We don't know when he arrived but he transferred from Number two to Number 1 Corps on 21 September 1827. HIs wife was Isabella Kingaby Nee Ardry (or Ardrie) and she was for some time an Assistant Governess at the Parramatta Female Factory and rated some mention for receiving gifts from prisoners before being discharged because of her young children and the unsuitability of such in the factory.   James was stationed in Parramatta in 1827, recorded then as a veteran with over 14 years of service, and was discharged during the disbandment of the corps on 24 Sept 1830. He  received the usual land grants, in the Parish of Kelso on the Macquarie River,  but 1839 transferred his land to William Charles Wentworth and this was noted in the Government GazettesJanuary 1841. IN my grandmother's birth certificate (James' daughter born 1836) he is listed as Farmer. Later correspondence to the Colonial Secretary ( Dumeresqu) Isabella states that he was "in business"..   6 daughters were born to Charles and Isabella between 1828 and 1836 , four surviving, following on from one child in England who did not come to the Colonies and presumed DOB, born 1822. The fact that there were no more children until 1828 indicates that military sevice may have keep the couple apart until NSW.
