      SYDNEY - MILLERS POINT - OBSERVATORY HILL 1

      A tower mill was constructed on Observatory Hill by the Government for public use for the grinding of flour. Motion work was imported from England from a Chatham miller named Nathaniel STEDMAN in 1794 along with a scale model for the guidance of the builders in Sydney. Another source states that in 1795, Governor Hunter brought with him the essential working parts of a windmill. However, given the sequence of events, it seems possible that these parts may have been intended for, or ended up being assigned to, the government's 'Military windmill' on which work apparently commenced in 1796. The parts brought out with HUNTER in September 1795 would appear to be, four wheels, a wooden shaft, brake and some ironwork for a total cost of 99 pounds and 18 shillings including paint and freight to the point of departure. Unfortunately the millwright that had been sent out from England could not do the job and was discharged after considerable cost to the public purse. Sydney's first windmill was completed in 1797 by a person who is recorded in some references as an unknown Irish convict , and is now thought to be John DAVIS. DAVIS arrived in the colony Ca.1796 and claimed to be a miller and millwright by profession and the first man to build windmills for the Government. Some of the sails were stolen in June 1797, but the mill was apparently repaired and it appears to have been still operational in 1800. The mill was in some disrepair by then and the foundations were crumbling. In 1804 following the Irish revolt at Castle Hill, Governor KING ordered that a citadel be built on the hill around the windmill. This was never completed but was quite substantial in its day. In 1805 the windmill head was displaced in a storm and by 1810 only the tower was left. The remains were probably still there in 1855 and may have existed up to the building of the observatory in 1858.
