Details: Over towards the western boundary there is a grave which contains the remains of the only son of James Reid, one of the early residents of Newcastle, and also those of his son in law Captain Hyde, and three grandchildren. The inscrption on the stone reads - Sacred to the memory of James Macartney, only son of James Reid Esq., of Newcastle, who departed this life 1 May 1852 in the 17th year of his age.....James Reid, or as he was familiarly called, Long Reid, was an officer in the 56th regt., who retired from the service with the rank of major, and came to NSW in 1822, settling in Newcastle about that time. He became interested in a squatting pursuits, and owned a large tract of country at Rosebrook, Lambs Valley and Gosforth, on the Hunter adjoining the present home of Mr. Beresford Hudson, in that locality and a station out west, being one of the early pioneers who crossed the Blue Mountains and took up land at Bathurst where he had a station for some years. It was he who built the present Baden Powell Hotel formerly known as the Caledonian, and his private house, which now stands at the top of Watt Street is one of the oldest buildings in the city. It is now divided into two residences but was originally one, and in its time was the best house in the district. A store used by Major Reid in his business still exists behind the offices of Messrs Dalgety and Co., which, together with the dwelling mentioned was erected somewhere about 1824. It is interesting to note that he was the owner of two thousand acres of land where the town of Wallsend now stands. A portion of this property was sold to Mr. A. Brown, the father of Mr. J. Brown of the Hetton Coal company. The purchaser at once started boring for coal and about two years later disposed of the property to the founders of the Wallsend Company, receiving 25 thousand pounds, part in cash and part in shares, for what cost less then as many hundreds. Major Reid married Miss Macartney, a niece of Dean Macartney of Melbourne, whose father sat in the Irish Parliament before the union. When the Australian Bank suspended payment, Major Reid, in common with others, suffered severe losses, and retired to his property at Rosebrook. There, one wild stormy night, on which one of his daughters (Mrs. Rooke) was born, the convict servants set fire to the house and Major Reid had to take his wife in the pouring rain to a tent from which he watched the destruction of the building. There were several children by the union, including Mrs. Rooke, Mrs. Turner, whose husband was the original owner of Minmi colliery, Mrs. Grant, whose husband was police magistrate at Bourke and Mr.s Hyde, whose husband Captain George Hyde, and their three children, are buried in the grave mentioned. Major Reids only son died of consumption contracted by hardships and exposure in travelling to the goldfields. His death was a great blow to the father, who returned to England in 1858 and died later on in Germany. Mrs. Hyde who is the only surviving child was present with her sisters at old Government House, Parrmatta, the night Lady Fitzroy was killed and left for Sydney to attend the identical ball to which the Governors wife was going by a vehicle which started just previously. Her husband, Captain George Hyde was well known in Newcastle shipping circles. He commanded a vessel which came to Melbourne about the time the diggings broke out, and later entered the pilot service at Sydney Heads. He was present when the Dunbar was wrecked, and took a leading part in saving Johnson, the only survivor, from his perilous position on the rocks at The Gap. When the position of the sailor was discovered a flag staff was unshipped and run out over the cliffs, to which a tackle was attached. Captain Hyde climbed out on the spar and swung the rope in to Johnson, who was then hauled up by the united strength of the crowd and salors from a warship which was lying in the harbour. Subsequently he came to Newcastle, and for several years sailed out of this port commanding vessels for Dr. Bowker, W.H. Whyte, and the lat John Dalton. It was while in this employ he had an experience with Bully Hayes, the pirate of the Pacific. The vessel was bound to Lytteltown and Hayes went as a passenger. His reputation was fairly well known, and Captain Hyde was warned of the character of the man he had on board. Before the passage was over, ample reason was afforded of Hayes crooked intentions. He had won over the second mate, and one morning made an attempt to get into the masters cabin. Fortunatley Captain Hyde was awake and tackled the intruder who was kept confined to his cabin until the vessel arrived at Lyttelton. Once in port, the police flag was hoisted, but Hayes, who had been temporarily freed, took the hint and went over the side, swam ashore, and escaped into the bush. Captain Hyde died in 1878. His son Mr. J.M. Hyde is a well known resident of the city
