    History & Achievements :
    In researching my family history, I have established by correspondence with the NSW Police Department,
    that Robert McJANNETT came to NSW with the Police. This indicates that he must have arrived in the first detachment of the 80th. In February 1850, Robert was appointed as Chief Constable at Yass NSW, a position he held until 1858 when he retired due to ill health.
    In March 1854, Robert arrested, at Yass, Frank Gardiner alias Francis Christie, on a charge of horse
    stealing. Gardiner was tried at Goulburn court and sentenced to 14 years but was released on a ticket of leave in 1859, and later of course went on to become a notorious bushranger. Robert died in June 1885 and is buried at Yass.
