Notes:  Governor Lachlan Macquarie refered to James Meehan’s house as Meehan’s Castle, no doubt because of  it’s size which actually looks rather barn like. After James Meehan’s son, Thomas,  married Mary Ann Tress the couple lived at the home and certainly, Mary Ann”s parents,  Richard & Sarah Tress nee Broughton, would have stayed there with them.
