William Lee was bought out by the Australian Agricultural Company. The Company was at Stroud, New South Wales, in the Williams River area. Not sure who his Employer was, but on the 3 June 1841 he married a Miss Jane Gill at Raymond Terrace (This was the closest Registry office, so the Wedding could have taken place elsewhere). They had a very large family and are buried in the Port Macquarie General Cemetery. Port Macquarie is where I live.
