    • John and his family arrived on the Darling Downs later that year (1854). They first went to Pilton station, where John was employed as an Overseer and the family lived in a bark hut.
      John started a butchering business in Drayton and later with his sons extended it to Toowoomba, establishing it on the northern side of Rutherven Street. John was a most respected citizen of Drayton and was its mayor twice, in 1871-1872 and again in 1873 when that town was a municipality. He was a member of the committee that built the Catholic church in Drayton in 1865/66. His son Edmond became Mayor of Toowoomba in 1889 and his grandson was mayor in 1914.
