The cattle that had escaped from the first settlement wandered on until they had found suitable grazing land on the Nepean, and there had settled down. When discovered they had thrived and increased into a small herd. By the Governor’s direction they were left unmolested, being but occasionally visited, and their run became known as the Cow Pastures.
