    History & Achievements :

    Dr. Isaac Scott Nind, surgeon with the 39th Dorsetshire Regiment, probably returned to Sydney from King George Sound Settlement with other troops and convicts in 1831. They had been in  Western Australia five years, after arriving on the 'Amity' on Christmas Day 1826 to assist in forming a settlement. Commander of the expedition in 1826 was Major Edmund Lockyer and on board the 'Amity' were Dr. Nind and other members of the 39th Regiment as well as 24 convicts. Gardens were commenced at the settlement and fresh water was abundant. Timber was in great variety and found to be similar to that found around Port Jackson. Limestone, granite and iron stone was also available. Fish, Kangaroo, black swans, wild geese and ducks were abundant. The natives were found to be shy and cautious but good natured and the climate exceedingly pleasant and free from hot winds.(7) No doubt Dr. Nind was kept busy while the settlement was established.   On return to New South Wales in 1831 Dr. Nind perhaps led a less adventurous life, settling in Paterson, New South Wales. He attended John Flynn in 1834 after Flynn had been stabbed by an aborigine, was appointed  Commissioner of Crown Lands in 1837(9) and in 1846  opened a chemist store in Paterson(10)     Dr. Isaac Scott Nind died in 1868
