  • Conditional approval for Emma Louisa Grant's selection of landwas given on 24 November 1888. James selected 40 acres of land at Ravensbourne. "For the agricultural township farms adjoining the village of Ravensbourne there was great competition, many of the portions being applied for from four to ten times over. The ballot had to be resorted to in no less than 50 cases; this, with the refunding of the amounts paid by the unsuccessful applicants, necessarily occupied  a deal of time, and it was not till half-past 6 O'clock that the business was concluded, and the court closed. By 7 o'clock the whole of the refundments had been paid over to 115 applicants. The 76 portions adjoining the village of Ravensbourne, granted at the land court, were  apportioned among 62 selectors, so there is every probability of the village settlement of Ravensbourne proving a success. The total area granted at the court was 5025 acres among 68 applicants."4
  • On 3 May 1892 The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- "SATURDAY, 1st. OCTOBER. (Before Captain Goodill, P.M.) LARCENY OF BEEF
    James Matthias Grehan, on remand, was charged with stealing a bag of beef from the Toowoomba railway platform on the 19th September last. After the evidence taken on the previous occasion had been read over,Mr. Inspector Graham called Edmond Boland, who deposed that he was a butcher residing in Toowoomba on the 9th September last sent 1 bag of beef to Grantham, and another on the 19th to John Molen. at Grantham ; sent it to the railway station and delivered it there to be for warded to the address ; was told it had not arrived; received no letter; whatever from accused respecting that meet; the bag was similar to that produced ; accused had beef of witness before ; held the railway people responsible for the beef; did not remember selling any beef to accused for perhaps a couple of years. Charles Voclker deposed that he was a butcher employed by Mr. Boland ; got in structions from him to pack a bag of meat for Grantham; it was a bag like that produced. William Burke, clerk at the railway station, deposed to receiving a bag of meat from Mr. Boland on 19th September, addressed to Mr. Molen, Grantham ; the bag was put on the platform and afterwards found to be missing.
    Accused, on being asked to plead, pleaded not guilty. The Bench considered the charge fully proved, and ordered accused to pay ,£10, in default to be imprisoned for two months."5
  • On 25 June 1892 James applied for a Victuallers licence for his premises at Hampton. The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- "I, MATTHIES GREHAN, of Hampton, Contractor, hereby give Notice that I intend to apply at the next Quarterly Meeting of the said Licensing Authority for a Provisional Certificate under the said Art, for the premises belonging to me and situated on Hampton in tho Police District of Crow's Nest.
