The Division of Hardy Mill and Heatons

 Extract from Hardy Mill by Fred Horridge, pages 23-26, Chapter 8.

The Estate Divided

The year 1745 was important to this history in that it was then that Hardy Mill and the Heaton's Farm became divided into two separate holdings. Figure 10 shows the layout of the estate at that time with the names and acreages of the fields. Some conflicting acreages are stipulated in the Abstract of Title but the total area of the original estate was a little over 29 Statute Acres (R15.)
