About David Charles Frederick Scott, Captain, East India Co

From his father's profile at http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/scott-helenus-2851:

"Another son, David Charles Frederick (1804-1881), who was educated at Woolwich Academy, became a captain in the East India Co.'s service in 1824 and arrived in New South Wales in 1835. He resigned his commission in 1840 and lived for a few years on his grant, Bengalla, near Muswellbrook, before moving to Sydney, where in 1848-49 he edited the short-lived but ambitious New South Wales Sporting Magazine. In 1849 he was made a stipendiary magistrate and from 1860 until his death was police magistrate for Sydney. Truly benevolent, Scott used his public office to lend weight to his work for the destitute and his private means were spent freely in many individual cases of need. He was a considerable student of Arabic and Persian and a competent artist, as was his wife Maria Jane, née Barney. Predeceased by his two sons, he died on 16 May 1881 at his home, Lisgar, named after his cousin John Young, Baron Lisgar.
