c1880. Ink and watercolour on linen, annotated “Reuss & Halloran, Architects & Surveyors, 100 Pitt Street” in ink lower right, 33.2 x 44cm. Old folds, slight foxing.

Map shows early landowners of the area, including F. Giles, John Hay, Lennon, G.A. Lloyd, Manning, Nott, S. Thompson, and I.E. Threlkeld. The road shown as “Reserved Road” on this map is now called “Manning Road”, after Sir William Manning, the major land holder of the area who owned Wallaroy, built in a Gothic-style in 1859. Provenance: Daniel Cooper estate.

Daniel Cooper (1785–1853) was a pardoned convict who amassed a fortune in the 1820s through real estate and various business interests including whaling, sealing, shipping, and the export of Australian wool, mostly through the trading firm known as Cooper and Levey’s. The firm acquired John Piper’s estate when it was sold, comprising over 1100 acres at Woollahra and Rose Bay; Cooper also owned parts of Liverpool. He later became involved in the banking business, becoming a governor of the Bank of NSW in 1828. Ref: ADB.
