John and Emily Mayes may well have been attracted to Australia by the stories they had heard from their relations, the Kingstons. Although the living conditions here then were rough, they represented an improvement to the prospects many working men faced back in England.

It is thought that stories of these opportunities were major factors in attracting new settlers to the colony. John and Emily Mayes and their two children, Joshua (3) and Ruth (1), sailed from England in the sailing ship "Indus" in 1871.

The family grew to 7 children. The district was beginning to expand as well, with more and more settlers coming in to take up the available land.
