Note   Thomas Amos' early childhood in England saw him attending the parish schools where his father was stationed attaining a good standard of education. nAfter arriving in the Colony he attended the school set up by the Anglican Church in Freshwater Bay, and later at James Street School in Perth. Labour was scarce and, when he was 14, he had no difficulty in obtaining work at Shenton's Wool Stores in St George's Terrace. Very keen on farming, he grabbed the first opportunity to gain employment on a farm to gain first hand knowledge in running one. He soon got a job at Herne Hill on the property of William Locke Brockman who had taken up a large estate to carry on dairy farming. He also managed to grow 10 acres of good quality wheat for his own use. When his son (also Wlliam Locke) took over a large estate at Moondah, Thomas Amos went with him. Brockman concentrated on the breeding of beef cattle and horses as the land was not suitable for wheat growing. Thomas, who spent most of the time tending the stock was entralled by the beauty of the district and vowed that one day he would set himself up in this area.
A man named Daniel King, who leased large grazing estates in the Beermullah and Bedamanup districts, married Ann, the 19 year old daughter of Samuel and Martha Mortimer. Daniel built a house at the junction of the Moore River and Gingin Brook and when it was completed, took his bride there in 1862. However, in the floods of 1863, he was forced to evacuate the homestead which he had named (or misnamed?) Mt Pleasant. After this misfortune, he planned and had built a larger residence on higher ground and when it was completed in 1874 he moved in and used it as an hotel. Thomas Amos, who had married another of the Mortimer girls in 1867, was asked to manage the property for his brother in law Daniel and he, Martha, and their 4 children (George Albert, Louisa, Martha and baby William) moved to Mt Pleasant in 1874.
Martha was a woman of strong character who managed the household efficiently and brought up her 12 children firmly but kindly. Although a school was opened in Gingin in 1863 with Mrs Tyler as the official school mistress in charge, those children in the Moore River area had little or no chance of attending so the task feel to the parents, many of whom were semi-literate themselves.
Apart from the arduous farming duties, the couple also kept a well tended garden in which they planted a number of varieties of fruit trees.
Thomas Amos eventually left Mt Pleasant and took up market gardening in the East Perth area. The ground was swampy and water was easily acquired a few feet under the surface all the year round. It was hard work, but after a few years, (in 1882) he managed to save sufficient money to acquire the leasehold of the Warren Bush Inn on the Guildford Road a few miles south of Bullsbrook. Only a few stones and a white gum tree now mark the spot in a curve in the road where the old Inn once stood. In 18856, having saved sufficient money, he purchased land near Regan's Ford on the Moore River. This property he called "Woodbine" and it was here that he spent the rest of his days. At last his dream of owning his own land had come true. Both he and the eldest 2 sons, George Albert and William worked tirelessly making the mud and straw bricks for the walls and chimney and stacking them in rows so the sun could dry them. They were also fortunate in finding quite a quantity of good quality timber on the beach north of the mouth of the Moore River which they carted home for us eon the doorways, windows, rafters and shelving. The roof was made of iron recently imported from England and was the first iron-roofed home on the river. The building was erected by Hartley Bowen who was credited with many of the fine homes built in the area at that time.
After he built fences to contain the annoying Regna's pigs, Thomas Amos and his sons undertook contract work for many of the settlers in the district. His plan was to do as much contract work as possible, clear his own land when work was slack and carry out other necessary improvements. Martha was an expert gardener and by selling fruit and vegetables to travellers who used the ford across the river near Regan's property on their way to and from the city, a little more was added to their savings.
In 1889, George Albert left for Northampton as he believd there were better opportunities in that area for employment. However by this time his parents were well on their way to having paid off their property and as well, the younger children were able to help with the lighter work around the farm.
In 1891, a railway line was built by the Midland Railway Company from Midland to Gingin, so fewer travellers used the route via Regan's Ford. They chose instead the inland route and railed their stock and produce from the railhead at Gingin to the metropolitan markets.
The advent of the railway was most beneficial to the settlers in the Gingin district and the town itself prospered from the improvement in trading. In addition, the arrival in the city of miners on their way to the Goldfields led to a great demand for horses as well as foodstuffs. So all who were able to provide these necessities gained financially. It was quite a rewarding period for the Bandy family as Thomas Amos, who had gradually built up his herd of cattle during the previous years, acquired a good price for his stock. With the money earned he procured mroe land between Regan's Ford and Muchamulla and now had a considerable acreage to tend.
A Roads Board was set up in the Gingin district in 1893 but it was short lived. However, by 1898 it was again functioning in an ongoing manner. Plans were in motion to clear a raod from Regan's Ford to Mogumber fro driving stock to be railed to the Midland Markets. When funds were available, the contract was let to Thomas Amos who completed the work of marking, clearing and grubbing in 1904. In 1906 at the age of 66 years, he was elected by the River settlers to represent them as a member of the Gingin Roads Board. After a year of service however, he found the task of riding to and from his property to Gingin beyond his capabilities and did not seek re-election the following year.
Thomas Amos and his wife contributed considerably to the development of the River properties both on their own farm at "Woodbine" and others for whom they had done contract work. Failing health eventually forced Thomas to give up working away from his own farm, but he continued to potter about until his death on 21 July 1921. He was buried at the Gingin Cemetary. Before his death Martha put the property up for sale as she was unable to carry on the work on her own. It was purchased by Thomas Hobson in 1920. Martha remained in Gingin for a short period, but after her husband's death she moved to "Glen Valley" at Gillingarra with her sons Reuben and David. David and his family moved to Carnamah and farmed in that area and Robert left "Hill View" the property owned by his brother Thomas Bandy, and went to live with his twin brother Reuben at Glen Valley.
