The First Sheaffes in Australia

Capt William Sheaffe (1798 - 1860)

The existence of the Sheaffe family in Australia is due to William Sheaffe. Born in Dublin, the second son of William Sheaffe of Mallow and Mary O'Meara (or Wright). William is a nephew of General Sir Roger Hale Sheaffe. He came to Australia a Lieutenant of the 50th Regiment aboard the 'Surrey' in 1834, served in Wollongong NSW and Norfolk Island, was promoted to Captain in 1840 and retired in 1841.
He purchased property known as "Stream Hill" at West Dapto NSW. The property still stands today (2001) & the local Heritage Society is keen to see it restored.
