  • Notes 
    • Australian Dictionary of Biography
    • Not to be confused with another John Jameson of about the same time, also in Australia. It seems that during the 1820's there were 2 John Jamisons in the colony. The one that spelt his name with an 'e' was not a Sir but rather a grazier who took up land near Goulburn in the parish of Wollondilly. He called his property Greenwich Park whichh recently sold for 8.1m to an overseas buyer. This John Jamieson married Sophie Bergin? and they had 3 children John in 1826 Philip 1827 and William in 1829. They also had a daughter Mary. The three boys attended Kings School Parramatta during the late 1830's and 1840's. Their address is stated as Wollondilly. [6]
    • Jamison fathered a number of illegitimate children by several mistresses. These mistresses included Mary Griffiths - the daughter of Regentville's dairyman. Jamison married Mary a few months before his death, thus enabling her to be styled Lady Jamison.
