When the first official settlers arrived in 1836,

to the colonists in many ways but was unfairly dispossessed of
his farm and stock when the SA company took it over for their
office. Wallen moved to Hog Bay and returned to hunting, while Henry Jnr was sent to Hobart Town to receive and education.
Henry jnr becanme known as Whalley and joined whaling ships
He was a pall-bearer at the funeral of William LANNEY,
the last full-blood male Tasmanian aboriginal in march 1869.
Whalley the chief harpooner in a whaling expedition 
died following the wreck of the Bencleugh at Macquarie Island in Aug 1877
Governor WALLEN lived out his life on Kangaroo Island until
poor health required him to go to Adelaide for medical
treatment, He died at the Gresham Hotel, King William Street 
in April 1856 at 62 years of age. His body was brought back to Kangaroo Island on the cutter Breeze and interred in this cemetery.

died following the wreck of the Bencleugh at Macquarie Island in Aug 1877
