The Cornwall Mason

OVER 150 YEARS AGO, there was an English mason by the name of William James Veach. The Veitch family traveled from the Germanic section of the Holy Empire (Rome) to Britannia in around 1200AD.

James, father to George Henry Veitch (Veach), worked predominately around the north-eastern corner of England; having hailed from Cornwall.

George, together with four of his sons, worked on several prominent stone buildings around Australia’s first city, Parramatta; St Patricks’ Cathedral, Parramatta Gaol & Orphanage (pictured above), and private residences in the surrounding streets.
