Description:

Map based on Aaron Arrowsmith’s very large separately issued chart, A Topographical plan of the Settlements of New South Wales, issued in 1799 but with some new editions. The chart shows Broken Bay, Port Jackson, Botany Bay and Port Hacking with the courses of the Hawkesbury, Parramatta and Georges rivers with north to the right. The explored parts of the west, including the courses of the Grose and Nepean, are mapped. The road from Sydney to Parramatta, Toongabbee and the road from Sydney to Botany Bay.

Wattamolla appears on a map for the first time spelled, Watu Mowlay, the aboriginal name for the area. This was recorded by Matthew Flinders when he, George Bass and a boy, William Martin were exploring in the Tom Thumb  March 1796. Flinders included the name Wattu Mowlee on sheet I of his east coast chart but this was not published until 1814.

From David Collins,
An Account of the English Colony in New South Wales. Collins arrived on the First Fleet and was one of the founders of the penal colony at Port Jackson and as judge-advocate, Collins was responsible, under the governor, for the colony’s entire legal establishment.
