red mail George Hall Peppin 1800 - 1872
George Hall Peppin. Born Dulverton, Somerset, England 15th February 1800. Died Australia 16th April 1872. Married Harriet Thompson (born 1798, died 1st August 1885) "George Hall Peppin and his two sons were experienced English sheep breeders who settled at ... Wanganella station (near Deniliquin, NSW) in 1858. Dissatisfied with the yield and quality of wool from the merino, they channelled their efforts into developing a new breed that was better adapted to Australian conditions, larger of frame and able to yield a greatly improved quality and quantity of wool. Their successes constitute the foundation of Australia's reputation as a quality wool exporter. Peppin sheep now predominate among the flocks of South Africa, New Zealand and South America and 60-85 % of Australian merinos have Wanganella blood." It has been alleged that he emigrated in order to get away from his creditors in England. Nevertheless, he is celebrated by a memorial window at All Saints' Church in Dulverton. I would welcome information about his genealogical provenance.
