Misc. Notes
BONG BONG

The Bong Bong district was generally considered a hundred years ago to extend from "Harby Farm" to "Throsby Park", and for a mile or two radius from the village.

Mr. Charles Loseby (incorrectly spelt Lozeby) acquired soon after arriving in Australia in 1845 two of the Veterans' blocks; No. 47 from W. R. Green, which he called "Saradale", and No. 46 from Lynn Shepherd which was called "Mt. Pleasant"; on the N.W. end of this block he built "Harby Farm" (now the property of Mr. Frank Albert).

Opposite, facing the Old Argyle Road, Thomas Loseby (a former Army Sergeant, and a brother of Charles and Richard Loseby), built an Inn, the "Farmers' Home", the foundation marks of which are still discernible.

Miss Sarah Loseby was born at "Harby,Farm", on September 4th, 1847 and was baptised by Rev. W. Stone of Sutton Forest in the Bong Bong Church soon after, being the first girl christened there. The old lady now in her I 00th year and with a clear memory, lives at "Somerby", 26 Boolway St., Bowral. She has a lot of information about Bong Bong and the district, keeps her house spotlessly clean and indulges in gardening.
