1829 Ticket of Leave for John Fitch

This is the first Ticket of Leave granted to John Knatchbull in 1829 while he was working in the Bathurst region. Knatchbull was granted the ToL for having apprehended eight runaways from Windsor Gaol. He moved to Liverpool in November 1829 where he became an overseer on the Parramatta Road. This ToL was subsequently cancelled. A later ToL, 42/1681 [Reel 912], is also listed for the district of Port Maqcuarie, on his return from Norfolk Island. A ToL Passport, 43/767 [Reel 971 4/4251], was also granted so Knatchbull could work on a cutter travelling between Sydney and New Moruya River. 1829 Ticket of Leave for John Fitch, No. 29/746 [4/4072]
