"The Historical Records of New South Wales are published with the object of affording the fullest information obtainable
concerning the foundation, progress, and government of the mother colony of Australia."

Published in 1898, the sixth volume covers the period 1806 to 1808; the final months of King's governorship, the arrival of Bligh, the interest of Joseph Banks in the colony, and Bligh's arrest and return home form the background to the events that took place. Again, the extensive collection of letters, despatches and State papers provide an interesting insight into all facets of the colony.


Only those old residents of the Hawkesbury district who have had bitter personal experience can realise the terrible devastation caused by a large flood in that locality. One of the first and worst of these inundations, of which we have any record, took place on the 22nd and 23rd March, 1806 .... The loss of food, livestock, and buildings was enormous. An area of 36,000 acres was flooded. In many parts the water lay from 12 to 18 feet deep. It was estimated that 23,606 bushels of wheat, 59,450 bushels of maize, and 4,145 bushels of barley, valued in the aggregate at £22,368, were swept away. Live stock, comprising 3,560 swine, 16 horses, 47 sheep, and 296 goats, valued at £7,454, were drowned.
