Banco Court
Before Mr. Justice Wise and a jury of four.
BLACKMAN AND ANOTHER V MYLBCHARANE,
The trial of this case, which had already lasted two days, was resumed and concluded.
It was an action for trespass upon a run in the district of Bligh, called Gungalma, alleged to be in the the lawful oc- cupation of the plaintiffs-Messrs. William Richard Black- man and Samuel Alfred Blackman. There were various pleas, but the substantial defence was that the lands claimed by the plaintiffs as part of their run were held as separate runs, under license from the Government, by the defendant and a Mr. John Ford. Damages were laid at £1000. Sub- stantial damages, however, were not claimed, the sole object of the suit, it was asserted, being to try the question of
right.
Sir William Manning, Q C, and Mr. Salomons appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr. Darvall, Q. C, and Mr. Butler
for the defendant.
The action differed from ordinary squatting suits in that the question at issue was not one of disputed boundary, but involved the right of the defendant and of his partner (who was not made a party to this suit) to the whole of the two runs in question. As they held these runs under the ordi- nary tenure of squattage from the Crown-amounting to a promise of a lease-points were also raised as to the power of the Crown to make such a promise. There was no ques- tion as to priority of occupation. The plaintiffs' father had been in occupation as far back as twenty-five years of all the country now claimed on both sides. Morris, the person through whom the defendant claimed, did not come into possession until many years afterwards. But the facts were peculiar. Blackman called his run Gungalma. He claimed to include all the country in question under that title, and paid licence fees, &c. But the descriptions then given were very vague. There was abundant evidence that Blackman's cattle ran all over the country thereabouts, including net only the station to which plaintiffs' right was admitted, and those now held by the defendant and his partner, but another station held by one Aarons. As to this last-named station an action had also been brought, which has yet to be tried. But though at the time Black- man's cattle roamed all over this country, there were no competitors, and it was contended that the whole of the land now claimed was not taken up in the legal sense, but only a part of it ; or that, if it had been so taken up, there had afterwards been an abandonment of it. Evidence was gone into to sustain the latter assumption, but the acts relied upon were those of a servant, and the plaintiffs' ratification was not shown. It was proved how- ever, that in a statement made by the elder Blackman, in 1848, when describing this run to the Government, it was said to include but 16,000 acres, whereas the land now claimed had an area of 60,000 acres. There were other discrepancies between that description and the present claim. The payments to the Government had been in accordance with the smaller estimate of area, not that now claimed, and it was contended that the plaintiffs were bound by the description in question. On the other hand it was contended that this was a more error-that as Blackman occupied the whole of the country by the name of Gungalma, the fact of his misdescribing its area would not destroy his title, and that plaintiffs had been always ready to pay up such arrears as the Government might fairly claim. The Crown lands' officers regarded the plain- tiffs' station, as claimed by them, as more extensive than necessary, and cut out of three stations now under litigation. Those for which the defendant and his partner held licenses, and which were the subject matter of the present action, were called West Gangalma and East Gangalma. The estimated area of the former was 16,000 acres, and that of the latter 14,000 acres. Both had a frontage to Nedgara Creek, a branch of the Castlereagh River, and described as a fine sheet of water. The plaintiffs' run was admitted to go from the opposite side of this creek to the Moulma Creek, another branch of the Castlereagh. This run, it was averred, would contain more than the 16,000 acres claimed in 1848. But the plaintiffs claimed to cross the Nedgara Creek and to take In the 30,000 acres of East and West Gungalma. It had already been held by the Supreme Court that the promise of a lease by the Government was, under the Crown Lands Act, equivalent for the purpose of such actions as the present to a lease. In this case, how- ever, there were conflicting promises, The defendant put in a mass of documentary evidence to show that he and his partner and their predecessors held these stations under the Crown In the ordinary way, and had paid all necessary fees. On the other band, the plaintiffs relied apon their previous holding of the whole, with a license as for Gun gslma, as creating a pre-existing promise from the Crown which applied to the whole. On the part of the plaintiffs it was contended, first, that certain proceedings of the Go- vernment in connection with the promise to the defendants bad been contrary to the Constitution Act ; secondly, that under the regulations themselves the defendant's tender for the lands was not legally receivable, inasmuch as there had been no forfeiture or abandonment of the lands tendered for. It was understood that these points were to be argued before the full Court.
The jury having been ably addressed by Mr. Butler for the defendant, and Sir William Manning having replied,
His Honor gave an elaborate exposition of the legal prin- ciples by which questions of possessory right were deter- minable, and, for the purpose of affording a basis for the argument of the other questions of law involved in this case, be asked the jury to find specially upon the facts.
The jury found, first, that there had been no abandon- ment by the plaintiffs. Secondly, that there had been a contract with the Crown by defendant and his prede- cessors for the occupation of this land ; and, that there had been a prior promise to the plaintiffs. Thirdly, that the plaintiffs were in licensed occupation of the land in question when the promise was made to defendant. Fourthly, that there had been renewal of this contract.
Damages were assessed at forty shillings.
A verdict for that amount was thereupon entered for plaintiffs for the above amount, with leave for defendants to move the full Court to set aside, or otherwise, as he might be advised.

On the Aborigines: Unfortunately, I can only place global statements not he web pages. The aborigines I am aware of are in the Blackman Line and are from the children of James Blackman and Elizabeth Harley.
