Bedervale

"Bedervale" (see also PiP) is a heritage National Trust listed homestead 2km from Braidwood in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia. HFF and best wishes for the weekend, everyone.

Explored.

John Coghill was the captain and part owner of a convict ship. He sold it and purchased some 23 sq km of land in the Braidwood area, where he built (1836-42) and operated “Bedervale”. Convict labour was part of the equation for all these large land owners and Coghill had some 70 labourers assigned to him. It is interesting that “Bedervale” still has a cellar with iron rings on walls where any troublemakers were imprisoned! The transportation of convicts to NSW ceased in 1840 and the social fabric of the colony changed forever with the discovery of gold in 1851.
