JOHN VERGE : Verge’s activities as a farmer seem not to

have been spectacularly successful at first, though

he had built up a considerable practice as architect

and builder; on 24 July 1831 because of the

paucity of skilled architects, he was invited by

Governor Darling, unavailingly, to tender for

government contracts. Verge had bought land

on the site of 346 Sussex Street in February 1831

and he built his house there immediately afterwards.
