Granted 30 acres Penrith 6 Sep 1809. On 11 Jan 1810, Andrew and his future wife Mary Lewin each had to surrender their 30 acre land grants at Penrith to Governor Lachlan Macquarie. The grants had been illegally made by a rebel government under Lt Governor Paterson. New land grants of 30 acres each were then reissued to Andrew and Mary at Botany Bay. These farms, known by the names of Sea View and Newcastle, commanded a full view of the ocean between Botany heads and were noted for stock, particularly horses, on account of an extensive salt marsh. They also possessed a good fishery. The farms also bordered the banks of the Cooks River. Andrew received an absolute pardon on 31 Jan 1811 and sold the Botany Bay farms about 1819, together with two sailing sloops, of nine and eleven tons burden, which were used for discharging grain for His Majesty's Stores.
