MY BACK YARD
By GEOFF SMITH
ISBN 0 9592018 1 5
This book is directed towards the preservation of the history of the Fitzgerald’s Valley and surrounding districts.
Geoff Smith is familiar with the countryside outlined by the boundaries of four parishes which more or less hinges on the village of Wimbledon. As the settlers began to arrive in the Bathurst district in the mid 1800’s to select the isolated portions that remained unoccupied or to purchase land as it was proclaimed as Torren’s Title small communities developed – such as George’s Plains, Fitzgerald’s Valley, Perthville, Evans Plains, Gresham, Newbridge, Kings Plains, Cow Flat, and Caloola.
