    History & Achievements :

    Stephen Partridge began his military career as a member of the 46th Regiment . Stephen was stationed onboard the ship "General Hewitt" prior to its leaving England. It was on this ship that he arrived in Australia in 1814. He transferred to the 48th Regiment when the 46th was transferred to India. Whilst in  the colony he became an overseer of the lumber yards. He was appointed the Superintendant of Convicts and Public Works in Port Macquarie where he reported on the construction of many of the early buildings in the area. In 1828 as a result of a Commissioner's Enquiry Report his conduct came under fire as trafficking with convicts in the use of Government grain. He resigned his position as Superintendant applied for and obtained a licence as the Land lordship of " New Inn " and held the licence for 3 years Stephen was granted 640 acres in the area now known as Thrumpster ,located on the Oxley Highway 10kilometres from Port Macquarie. Later selling the land to Major A.C.Innes, Stephen held some smaller grants in the area.
