When Mary Ann and James received their gift, they pulled down the existing house and built another. They worked the established orchard and kept the fences in good order (a necessity when grazing the cattle and horses) for all their married lives.
They property was left to their 8 sons, all orchardists in the Pennant Hills area, and 3 daughters. One son and 2 daughters had pre-deceased their parents. At the time of Mary Ann's death, she had 68 grandchildren and 114 great grandchildren.

The trustees kept the farm in good condition and sold it in 1916 to J. W. Hedges, a Sydney businessman, and in 1918 the 33 acres were subdivided into 6 lots of farmlet sizes of of 5 to 6 acres.
