Another version of the Barrallier Survey plan completed in June July 1801 has been uncovered in England and uploaded to the University of Newcastle’s Coal River Website.
This plan, located at the United Kingdom’s Hydrographic Office in Taunton [Shelf Location: 435 Press 45B ] is identical with the National Archives plan except for the detailed portion at the left hand side of the Survey.
The National Archives’ version of the full Barrallier Survey plan contains a detail view of the Harbour Entrance showing Nobbys (Coal Island) Fort Scratchley (Collier Point), Stockton (Pirate Point) and Newcastle Harbour (Coal Harbour).
The Hydrographic Office’s version shows detail of the Hunter islands and Fullerton Cove. It was originally located in the Hydrographic Office by Mr Andy Macqueen for his 1993 book ‘Blue Mountains to Bridgetown: The Life and Journeys of Barrallier 1773-1853’.
We also thank Mr Guy Hannaford, Archives Research Manager at the Hydrographic Office for his help in locating this important plan, and its preparatory conservation work undertaken prior to its digitisation. It is greatly appreciated.
