History at Quat Quatta before the KellyGang
In 1860 litigation finally defined the boundaries of Quat Quatta and adjoining properties. In 1865 Donald Ferguson was the lessee.
In 1870 Samuel Bowler did not pay the lease fee and loss possession.
The run was sold to Mr Swift of Tumut but it seems that he sold it in short time to John Ettershank.
The place was then owned by the Bank of New South Wales in 1875 and sold to Hon J A Wallace (he was a gold buyer who often carrying as much as two thousand ounces on a led horse without any guards) (Chomley) (Sadleir)
