An Unlucky Police Constable — 1 Comment

  1. My great, great grandfather, Henry Bassmann, was one of the first policeman in Grafton. He then moved to Ballina. Henry was born in Holstein, Germany. He travelled to Australia in 1854, on “The Queen of the East”. He joined the Police Force and was appointed to Grafton. Henry was a very industrious and hardworking person. He married twice and resided on the Richmond River for approx. 20 years. He retired on the 28th September 1884. He died at the age of 89.
