About Jonathan Warner

Jonathon Warner was born in Lymington, Hampshire. He arrived in Australia on 12 September 1826 on the ship Orpheus with other members of the Royal New South Wales Veterans including Lieut-Colonel Henry Dumaresq and Captain Robinson.

After retiring from military service, he worked as an assistant surveyor of roads and bridges. In 1828 he examined a line of road recommended by Percy Simpson, causing him to travel through the Lake Macquarie area. It was here in July 1829, that he selected 1280 acres at the northern end of the lake. Warner had settled on the land by 1831 and established a farm with an orchard and a house overlooking the bay. From his farm a track led over the hills to Newcastle. His property, 'Biddaba', adjoined that of William Brooks and George Weller. Jonathon Warner was appointed Magistrate for Brisbane Waters in 1833 and he travelled to Brisbane Water from the lake each fortnight by horse.

In 1840 a portion of land possibly from Warner's estate was laid out for a township in 1/4 acres lots and advertised in the Sydney Morning Herald. It was called 'Lymington' and was described as being on the north eastern side of Lake Macquarie with a gradual ascent from the lake and an abundance of grape vines. There were no sales made and the lots were re advertised once again in 1855 however again failed to sell. ... from
