The Campbells and McAllisters of Tenterfield.

Published as The Campbells are Coming’ in 1996. Second edition 2010. ISBN 978-0-9578150-5-6

The Campbells and McAllisters were pioneering immigrants of the Tenterfield district. Ulster traditions and colonial events shaped their lives. Successful farmers became soldiers who trained with the original Light Horse regiments, went to London for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and served with pride in the Boer War, World War One and the Second World War. Deep grief was endured as a result with seven deaths and six more family members wounded and maimed in the First World War alone.
