Lucas, James (1798–1869)

In 1818 James moved with his mother and several siblings from Sydney to Launceston. He married Elizabeth Murray in 1819. They farmed at various properties around Launceston (1820-25), Longford (1826-38) and Evandale (1839-47) before moving to Victoria in 1854. It is thought that he went to the Ballarat goldfields and then settled at Carngham where there was also a goldfield.
