Warby was born in 1801 in Parramatta, New South Wales.
In 1885 he died in Victoria.
It appears that in about 1828 Mr William Warby settled at Darbalara on the junction of the Tumut and Murrumbidgee Rivers. At the time the aboriginals called the Tumut River "Bewuck" Explorers Hume & Hovell when they passed through the area in 1824 about 40 miles south from Warby's had named the river "Medway".
From records held in the Government Gazette in 1829 it was reported that Captain Charles STURT wrote in his diary whilst travelling down the Murrumbidgee River - "at 9am on the 27th November, 1929 he arrived at the property of a Mr Warby at a place called Darbalara on the junction of the Tumut River". Included in the party was Benjamin Clayton who would in about 9 years in the future settle in the Tumut area on \]]]\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\the "Blowering Run" in 1838.
Of further interested it is noted that - Mr Warby told him about a Mr James Hannibel Rose who's Tumut Plains Station was situated further south on the Tumut River. And a Mr Stuckey and a Mr Roberts who were on the land further down the Murrumbidgee River.
Valued employees of William Warby's Mr & Mrs Thomas and Caroline McAlister, were to go on and and become long term residence of the Tumut area. Caroline is reported to be the first or second white women in the area. Whilst living there she gave birth to a beautiful daughter they called Elizabeth on the 10th May, 1830, who of course would then have been the first white baby born in the region.This family is of particular interest as they finished up owning
"Wereboldera" situated on the Blowering Road, Tumut.
In 1847, Elizabeth at the age of 17 years married John Wilkinson of Yellowin, NSW in Yass, NSW.
On the 8th December,1832, a Dr George Bennett, M.R.C.S., M.D., a naturalist whilst doing a horse back tour of the area, after staying with the ---- at "Jugiong Run" he visited the William Warby property at their "Darbalara Run".
Mr Mr J A Broughton took up the Gocup area.
In 1838 another nearby run is mentioned in records "Adjunbilly Run" was occupied by Captain George Macdonald This would have been a very isolated run situated up in the hills.
The property was sold to Mr de Sallis

1836 - LAW. - SUPREME COURT (Criminal Side). THURSDAY MAY 5. (Before Mr. Justice Burton, and a Military Jury.
Benjamin Warby was indicted for receiving cattle knowing them to have been stolen at Yass, on the 16th of October last. The information charged the offence being varously, as having been stolen by William Warby, and also by some person to the Attorney General unknown.
The first witness in point of time was an approver, named William Bridges, a stock keeper, who had the charge of cattle belonging severally to Messrs George Hill and William Roberts, and Andrew Badgery and about three years ago, after a short absence from this station, on his return he missed several of the cattle, which he afterwards saw in William Warby's herd at Yass; Witness then gave information at Yass; and on his information William Warby was taken up, committed for trial by the bench, and eventually convicted before the Supreme Court and transported.
The next witness was Mr. Corn O'Brien, who stated that during the examination of William Warby at the Police Office, at Yass, he received information that Benjamin Warby was collecting his brother's cattle together for the purpose of removing them; and accordingly, attended by, the Police and two of the approvers, he went to Warby's station, and there saw Benjamin Warby, who was busy collecting the cattle and who on witness appearing, said, "I know what you are come for, and if there are any cattle that can be pointed out by the approvers you can take them away;" at this time there were about 1,100 cattle collected in the yard, and fourteen or sixteen head were picked out by the approvers and driven away ; witness cautioned Warby against sending the cattle away, as they were seized by the Crown; upon which he said that he had taken legal advice upon the subject, in consequence of which he had purchased his brother's cattle, &c. for for £2,500, and had agreed to pay it in instalments, for which he had given Bills payable from three months to three years;
witness then went away, but did not return with the approver, nor take further steps until the month of January, when hearing that the prisoner had removed the cattle, some up the country, and others to Sydney for sale, witness came to Sydney, accompanied by the approvers Glover and Bridges, and gave information of some of the stolen cattle being at Moore's farm, on the Liverpool Road, which caused an inquiry, and Benjamin Warby, who was then in Sydney, was taken into custody.
Mr. George Hill stated, that he saw some cattle which Benjamin Warby offered for sale in a paddock near Grose farm, but did not think at the time that any of them belonged to him, until informed so by Glover and Bridges, the stock-keepers, who went out and identified four as been severally the property of witness; and witness and his partners.
At the close of the prosecution, Mr. Forster contended that there was no case to go to the Jury ; that the whole transaction was contract, which however it might be the subject of an inquiry as to the claim of the crown, could not in any possible way be construed into a guilty receiving. It might even amount to a fraudulent withholding; but after the prisoners open avowal of his intention at the very outset of the business, it could not be criminal.
Mr. Plunkelt at considerable length remarked on the prevalence of cattle stealing, which required a check; and contended that on the inquest which had decided that the sale was a frudulent one, had in fact given their opinion of the nature of the act. After being warned by the Magistrates, and knowing as the prisoner must have done, that the cattle were stolen, there were clear grounds for the charge, and the evidence in his opinion was sufficient to go to the Jury. Mr. Foster replied at some length. His Honor said that he should certainly let the case go to the Jury, which he felt bound to do on two points ; first, the prisoner knowing that his brother was accused and under examination for cattle stealing, made an agreement with him to buy the cattle that his brother was under examination on a charge of stealing and the prisoner was found collecting and driving away the cattle, as it would seem to defeat the necessary enquiry.
The prisoner was called on for his defence. Mr. Francis Stephen, attorney, sworn, deposed ; that in October last, the prisoner and his brother William called at witness' office, requiring professional advice as to whether a warrant being then out against William Warby, a Bill of Sale could be made, and would be considered valid between the brothers; and witness gave it as his opinion, that if a bona fide Bill of Sale was made, without reservation, at an equitable rate, the sale would be valid ; on which a Bill of Sale was drawn in witness' office, dated October 16, 1834, conveying the whole of William Warby's property, consisting of wheat , fencing, farming utensils, and cattle, to Benjamin Warby, for the sum of £2,500, which was paid in bills, made payable in nearly equal sums from three months to three years ; witness considered the sale as a bond fide one, and had no doubt from circumstunces that he was aware of, that the first bill was paid when it become due; there was no clause in the agreement which provided that a deduction should be made from the purchase-money for any stolen cattle that the prisoner might be done out of; witness had always had a high opinion of the prisoner by whom he had frequently been professionally employed, but did not know much of William Warby.
Several most respectable witnesses were then called to speak as to the good character that the prisoner bore. His Honor summed up at great length, and the Jury retired for about a quarter of an hour, and returned a verdict of not guilty. The Attorney General stated that he would take bail for the prisoner's appearance on a second charge, when called on; and the prisoner was discharged. - (Ref- The Australian (Sydney, NSW : 1824 - 1848)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 10 May 1836).

1838 The late rains have fallen generally through the country and have prevailed to a much more plentiful extent, especially through, out the southern districts than in Sydney and its immediate neighbourhood. On Thursday, the 8th instant, the Mulwarey Ponds at the rear of the old township of Goulburn, suddenly over flowed, and presented the appearance rather of a rapid current, than of a few atngnaut pools, which they have been during the last three years.
Two horse teams belonging to Mr John Warby, of Campbelltown, returning from Yass, at tempted to cross the high road between two of the ponds about one hundred rods from the residence of the Police Magistrate, about four o'clock on the afternoon of that day, when the water was running, about five feet in its deepest part, but the attempt was attended with disastrous consequences.
Tbe foremost team, on which independently of the driver, there was a passenger, his wife and two infant children, with much difficulty gained the opposite side of tbe road, the water reaching several inches above the bed of the dray; but the dray which followed immediately after proved not so fortunate, the horses being swept from off their feet by the rapidity of the current into one of the deep ponds, where they with the dray and the drivers disappeared instantaneously, and the loading glided away swiftly with the stream.
Mr Stewart, who witnessed the occurrence from tbe verandah of his house, hastened with proper assistance to the spot and arrived just in time to be present at the draggiug out of the half drowned driver from a watery grave at the eleventh hour by the passenger in the former dray at the imminent peril of his own life, but the horses, (two valuable draught animals, worth at least one hundred guineas) were drowned, and the dray and harness were not recovered until the following day, when tbe water had subsided upwards of three feet.
Much praise is due to Mr Stewart for his prompt humanity towards the unfortunate driver, whose suspended animation he lenovated by administering warm restoratives — as well as for the humanity he displayed towards the rest of the travellers who had lost the whole of their stock of provisions and comforts in the flood, and were unable to return to the township for a fresh supply.
The rain fell in torrents in Campbelltown during the whole of Wednesday last, as well as most of the preceeding night, and the various creeks and water holes of that neighbourhood are consequently well filled. The good folks of Campbelltown are in great glee at receiving this bountiful supply of rain, anticipating plentiful second crops of hay as there sutt, but the wheat crops being forward, will sustain little or no benefit from the circumstance. Farther up the country, the wheat crops are considerably more backward, and their appearance be tokens a more plentiful harvest. - (Ref- The Australian (Sydney, NSW : 1824 - 1848)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 20 November 1838).
