He was discharged on 24-9-1823 and chose a land grant in leiu of a pension. Governor Brisbane's letter 28-10-1823 granting 100 cres within surveyed lands was lost and it took until 1830 after much correspondence that Governor Darling granted 100 acres at Castlereigh "Cupitt's Farm"
During the wait George purchased 32 rods of land from Rev. Samuel Marsden for 12.4.6 in George Street Windsor. This parcel of land remained with the family for 157 years until sold by Jack Holman in 1981.
The Cupitt farm produced wheat for the colony and notes in the 1824 Sydney Gazette recorded tenders from Mary Cupitt to supply 100 bushells @ six shillings and six pence and Mr. George Cupitt to supply 100 bushells at the same rate.
"In the name of God, Amen, I George Cupitt of the District of Evan in the colony of NSW, Farmer, being very sick and weak of Body but perfect mind and memory and knowing that it is appointed of all men once to die, do make this my last Will and Testament. First of all I give and recommend my soul into the hands of Almighty God that gave it, and my body I commend to the earth to be burried in decent christian berrial at the discretion of my Executors and as touching such worldly estate herewith it has pleased God to bless me in the following manner" He made his son George executer of his will and bequeathed the three properties that he had acquired to his three youngest children Eliza, James and Matilda with the proviso that on their deaths that the properties would then pass to his three grandsons George, Thomas and James the eldest of George and sara's brood.
Notes for MARY WICKS:
Mary gave evidence at a trial in 1811 where Jane harding had thrown herself into Cockle Bay ( Darling Harbour) 30-11-1811 and drowned. Jane had borrowed 6/- from Mary leaving a gold ring as security and the next day borrowed a second 6/- leaving a shawl as security and used the money to buy liquor.
Cockle bay was used by convicts and their jailors to gather wattle for the walls of their huts. They found in the mud "tasty animals which they called cockles". In 1827 the area was renamed Darling Harbour in honour of Sir Ralf Darling.
Mary and George are burried in St. Matthews Cof E Windsor. There is a family vault.
The church was commisioned by Governor MacQuarie. The first building was condemned and the bricks used to cronstruct a wall in Thompson Square Windsor. Convict francis greenway was the comissioned to build the current Church which opened in 1822.
The cemetry was first used in 1810.
