WHAT'S IN ITS NAME? MILLER'S POINT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 13 February 1949
! WHAT'S IN ITS NAME? MILLER'S POINT WHEN Sydney was young, a windmill stood on the "" headland at the north-eastern corner of Darlinq Harbour. The windmill marked the site of one of the colony's first flour mills. The mill was owned and oc- cupied by a celebrity of the early times, known as Jack the Miller. "Jack" was a jovial, though somewhat frugal, man whose real name was John Leighton. Even before his death in ¡ 1826, at the age of 56, I legends had grown up about [ Jack the Miller. | One story was that the ! Governor offered him the | whole of the Point that now is named for him, if he would build a fence to divide the point from the mainland. Jack thought it would be too expensive a way of getting the land-and so he lost it. -E. OAKES
