6. John Yeomans

A matter concerning a piece of land granted in 1851 as a site for the Sydney Mechanics School of Arts was before his Honor on a petition for payment out of certain moneys to the trustees of the will of John Yeomans who died in 1875. This sum was money paid for land resumed under the Public Works Act about the year 1901, as part of the site of the Sydney Central Railway Station. It appeared from the evidence that on March 29, 1851, one rood of land in the parish of St. Lawrence was conveyed by the late Governor Fitzroy to trustees as a site for the school of arts and in 1852 an Act of the then Legislature empowered the trustees to sell the land at auction. A certain portion of the ground was bought by the late John Yeomans. Under his will John Yeomans devised his property upon trust to his daughters Mrs. J. V. Tooth, Mrs. James Frederick Fitzhardinge, Mrs. Grantley Hyde Fitzhardinge, and Miss Janet Fitzhardinge, for life, with remainder to their children. An order, it further appeared, was made by the Equity Court that the capital should be invested in Government stocks and it was so invested in New South Wales 5½. per cent funded stock, 1931. All the life tenants had now died.  The Court ordered that the fund now in court be paid out to the trustees of John Yeomans' will.
