    "Among the first settlers in Crow's Nest were the brothers, Charles and John Barnes. Charlie was born in Cornwall, England 1839. In 1862 he married Mary Ann Maddern and the same day took her aboard the "Mortmeronsa", bound for Queensland. His first job was at Coomrith Station on the Mooney. 1863 was a year of drought and in 1864 he resolved to move to Toowoomba. After setting out with a dray and two horses the drought broke and it rained every day of the journey and one night he awakened to find water surging around the bunk. His next work was on the railway between Ipswich and Toowoomba. He was employed on the Liverpool tunnel and was in Ballard's camp at the time of the big strike. In 1866 he took up thirty acres of land at Gowrie Creek, near the present asylum, where he carried on dairying until 1879 ?. In 1875, together with his brother land was selected at Crow's Nest and he and his family shifted to Penzance where he lived until he retired.

    Just after settling on his selection he was startled one morning while ploughing, to see a woman emerge from the bush wild eyed and muttering: "Oh my children, my children" It was Mrs Egan. It transpired that she had gone for the cows, leaving her three children at their bush home. The poor soul had been wondering for three days. Her boots had been discarded to ease her feet and strips of her dress had been torn off and bound round her feet when they had become torn and bleeding. It was the barking of Barnes' dog which saved her life. Charles Barnes died in Crow's Nest on 31 October 1925

John then followed mining at Bendigo, Stanthorpe, and Palmer River. Whilst operating a mine at the latter place his two mates died and he contracted ague. He left the field and walked to Cooktown. He started with a new pair of boots, but they were worn out before he reached Cooktown. Fear of blacks kept him from lighting a fire throughout the journey, so he subsisted on flour mixed with water. From Cooktown he caught a boat to Brisbane in 1875 and rejoined his brother at Gowrie Creek. It was then they in partnership, selected Penzance; and when, in the early 80's John took up a selection at Emu Creek, they dissolved the partnership.

John Barnes

M, b. 1843, d. 7 February 1935
  • John Barnes was born in 1843 in Paul, Cornwall, England.1
  • He was the son of Benjamin Prowse Barnes and Jane Badcock.
  • John Barnes was baptized on 23 July 1843 in Paul, Cornwall, England.2
  • Robin Smith wrote about the Barnes brothers in his book "Crows Nest History".
    "Among the first settlers in Crow's Nest were the brothers, Charles and John Barnes. Charlie was born in Cornwall, England 1839. In 1862 he married Mary Ann Maddern and the same day took her aboard the "Mortmeronsa", bound for Queensland. His first job was at Coomrith Station on the Mooney. 1863 was a year of drought and in 1864 he resolved to move to Toowoomba. After setting out with a dray and two horses the drought broke and it rained every day of the journey and one night he awakened to find water surging around the bunk. His next work was on the railway between Ipswich and Toowoomba. He was employed on the Liverpool tunnel and was in Ballard's camp at the time of the big strike. In 1866 he took up thirty acres of land at Gowrie Creek, near the present asylum, where he carried on dairying until 1879 ?. In 1875, together with his brother land was selected at Crow's Nest and he and his family shifted to Penzance where he lived until he retired.

    Just after settling on his selection he was startled one morning while ploughing, to see a woman emerge from the bush wild eyed and muttering: "Oh my children, my children" It was Mrs Egan. It transpired that she had gone for the cows, leaving her three children at their bush home. The poor soul had been wondering for three days. Her boots had been discarded to ease her feet and strips of her dress had been torn off and bound round her feet when they had become torn and bleeding. It was the barking of Barnes' dog which saved her life. Charles Barnes died in Crow's Nest on 31 October 1925

    John Barnes was born in 1843 and about 1863 he left Cornwall to join Charles at Coomrith and arrived there in time to accompany him on his journey to Toowoomba. John then followed mining at Bendigo, Stanthorpe, and Palmer River. Whilst operating a mine at the latter place his two mates died and he contracted ague. He left the field and walked to Cooktown. He started with a new pair of boots, but they were worn out before he reached Cooktown. Fear of blacks kept him from lighting a fire throughout the journey, so he subsisted on flour mixed with water. From Cooktown he caught a boat to Brisbane in 1875 and rejoined his brother at Gowrie Creek. It was then they in partnership, selected Penzance; and when, in the early 80's John took up a selection at Emu Creek, they dissolved the partnership. Charles keeping Penzance and John taking the cattle. The property, eventually 1280 acres was named "Hinton".3

  • He immigrated to Moreton Bay on 14 September 1863. John a 19 year old, arrived on the Star of England.4
  • He selected land in 1877. at Emu Creek - Portion 12, Parish of Djuan - 640 acres.5

  • Between 1883 and 1886 John Barnes was paying rates to the Crow's Nest Shire Council - Portion 5739, 640 acres , Djuan.6
  • At the age of 40 years, John Barnes married Harriet Ann Thatcher, daughter of Abraham Thatcher and Mary Davies, on 3 May 1883 in Queensland. They were married at the residence of Richard Askin, North Street, Toowoomba. Harriet was the sister of the Rev Thatcher and Emma Thatcher, Richard Askin's wife.
    John and Harriet lived in a tent until he built a house of bush timber. Here they carried on dairying and cattle raising until retiring.7,3
  • On 29 August 1892 John added the names of his children Lillian 6, and Ethel 5 to the list of children likely to attend the proposed new Moss View School that was to be established on land donated by Frank Gillies at Emu Creek. He lived on Portion 12 about 3 miles from the site. The children had never attended school.8
  • Julius Rohde sold his land at Emu Creek to John Barnes. The transfer was noted in the Darling Downs Gazette 's report on the Highfields Divisional Board in August 1897 " From Julius Rhode notifying the sale of his property at Emu Creek to John Barnes, to be attended to."9
  • He appeared on the Legislative Assembly - Aubigny Electoral Roll in 1900 living at Shrewsbury, Emu Creek. His qualification to vote was that he was a freeholder of the area.10
  • In 1901 he was listed in the Queensland Post Office Directory as a farmer collecting mail at Crow's Nest.11
  • He and Harriet Ann Thatcher appeared on the Electoral Roll between 1903 and 1908 living at Emu Creek. John was a grazier.12
  • In 1912 John and Harriet Barnes sold their property to Richard Makinson (who was from Yorkshire). John is said to have moved to Crow's Nest and became a money lender. Richard Makinson eventually established a dairy on the property, but was heavily in debt to John. It appears that he was often late in making repayments and John would threaten to reclaim the land. John eventually specified a time and date he required full payment. It is said that Richard paid the money with one minute to spare, possibly having received an inheritance from a relative in England.
    A Queenslander house was moved from Rocky Gully Road (near the present Emu Creek Hall) to the property. It was divided in two for transport to the property to be rebuilt. During the move the name, which formed part of the verandah fretwork, was broken and it is unknown if the house was HINTON or HILTON - the Makinsons going with Hinton.13
