    History & Achievements :

    My ancestor, Richard Tuckwell, arrived on the "Pitt" in 1792.  Richard was a Quarter-master-sergeant in
    the Corps under the command of Major Francis Grose.  He was discharged from the Corps on 23 April, 1794 and for was given a grant at Concord and lease on property at 106 Pitt Street.  His occupations were listed as farmer, butcher;  he also held a liquor licence.  Richard died on 21 March, 1820 and was buried in the old Devonshire Street Cemetery.  His grave is now located in the Pioneer Cemetery at Botany.
    Richard had seven children to Elizabeth Buckner, who also arrived on the "Pitt".  They were never married
    maybe because Richard was already had a wife and child whom he had left behind in England.  Their relationship broke up about 1807, when Richard married Elizabeth Sidebotham and Elizabeth Buckner married Patrick Kirk.  Tuckwell descendants settled in the Hills district and there is a Tuckwell Road in the area.
