Judge Donnithorne departed Sydney 10 June 1841 for Port Phillip and Hobart Town on the Sea Horse steamer
From a web page on Watson's Bay (a swampy area the Judge could not sell) Judge Donnithorne was a seasoned investor in land and the family was settled throughout his lifetime and beyond at Cambridge Hall in Newtown. Here he died in 1852, and here his daughter Eliza was to later gain notoriety as a celebrated recluse. When subdivision got under way, however, many of the old homes, large and small, were demolished. An 1888 advertisement for the final sale of Camden College typified the go-ahead attitude of the 1880's: ".... (Camden College)... is a large massive structure and, if pulled down, the materials will realise a handsome sum. The shrubberies and trees are of mature growth, but all must disappear before the business growth of Newtown... ".
