The 1788 - 1820 Pioneer Association Inc. is a research organisation formed to record and publicise the history of those who arrived in Australia between 26 January 1788 and 31 December 1820 and to unite the descendants of those pioneers. In 2010 the Association embarked on the following 12 year project to assist anyone wishing to research the lives of  pioneers living during the Macquarie Era, i.e.  1 January 1810 to 12 February 1822.  This site is in its initial development, if you would like to assist and have your pioneer/s included in this project please forwarded your information in the format recommended below to the Association by email:

"The People in the Life and Times of Lachlan & Elizabeth Macquarie Online Index” is an endorsed Macquarie 2010 Bicentenary Project initiative of  The 1788 - 1820 Pioneer Association Inc. 

To celebrate the Macquarie era the Association’s 12 year project will create an online index, profile and bibliography of the people (pioneers) living during the twelve years of the Macquarie era.  This project is very broadly based and it aims to identify as many as possible  the pioneers living during the Macquarie era, to identify original resource material relating to these individuals and thence develop an online bibliography.  Where possible, from the bibliography, provide a link to the life story of each of the pioneers identified.

In his book “Colonial Australia before 1850”, Brian Fletcher reports the population in the Colony as being 10,452 in 1810 and estimated 23,939 in 1820. Because the 1820 muster was incorrectly taken, the total for that year is an approximation.  During this period Elizabeth and Lachlan Macquarie would have had a profound influence on the lives of many of our settlers. Identifying where these pioneers first settled in the colony, their occupation, family status and life story, if they relocated; when, where and why, especially if they relocated to a Macquarie Town.  

A considerable number of these life stories have already been written and are presently hidden away in the archives of  family history and heritage associations, municipal, city, shire, state libraries and the Australian National Library. However, the next 12 years of the Macquarie era provides an excellent opportunity to motivate the many researches in these organizations to discover, and/or rediscover  the interesting facets of our pioneers' lives and ensure that history is available to all Australians via the The People in the Life and Times of Lachlan & Elizabeth Macquarie Online Index”  project.

Please Note: The 1788 - 1820 Pioneer Association Inc. is not responsible for the accuracy of any pioneer lifestories and/or dates published on this website, readers researching individual pioneers are advised to check for themselves original resource material.
