Biographical entry Allan, James Thomas (1831 - 1912)

Secunderabad, India
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Explorer, Pastoralist and Pioneer


James Thomas Allan came to Australia to work the goldfields.

He went on to work as a labourer before beginning his travels of previously unexplored parts of Queensland.

On his travels he discovered much good ground to graze cattle and went on to be a very successful grazier and property owner, until the drought of 1902 depleted his herd severely and he sold his herds and land to retire to Sydney.

He was one of the first settlers on the Barcoo and for a time owned Mount Enniskelen and Elizabeth Creek.
