James Brand Ritchie Robertson
James Brand Ritchie Robertson was married twice, and had a total of 27 children.
His first wife was Ann Foxton, whom he married in Sydney in 1835. He was a resident of the Maitland district, and his children were all born in the Hunter Valley. There were 12 children of this marriage. Ann Foxton was the daughter of John Foxton and Wilhelmina Townsend. Ann died at Maitland in 1864.
His second wife was Mary Hannah Payne Ingram, they were married in 1865 after the death of Ann Foxton. This marriage resulted in 15 children.
James B. R. Robertson gave evidence at the enquiry into the ownership of the reserve adjoining James Robertson's original grant at Robertson's point.
He said:-
He was 80 years of age; he remembered going to Robertson's Point with his father many years ago: a stone house was built there and his father lived there as a private gentleman; there was a fence at the back of the house dividing the point from the mainland: he thought there must have been water on both sides of the fence; he supposed that the fence went down to the water because it was intended to prevent cattle straying;there was a landing place on each side of the point, it was not built of timber but of rough stones; there was a good wide path up to the house; they used to go to Sydney, NSW in those days by boat as there was no conveyance  and no roads at North Shore.
