Bathurst, Clear Creek, 15kms north east, a shepherd killed by Wiradjuri men in his hut. A retribution party gathered the men and drove them into a gorge and shot the entire mob.


Brucedale Station, Bathurst, 13kms north, north east on Macquarie Plains, Winbundale Riverulet, Pine Ridge. Brucedale was owned by Henry Suttor, a family strong in the Bathurst/Mudgee region today.
Henry Suttor is recorded as being exceptionally kind to Wiradjuri people, allowing them access to his (their) land. His friend, Penneegrah, taught him the language and he also met Windradyne. Today Henry Suttor’s descendants have a memorial to Windaradyne on Brucedale.
