Elijah and Elizabeth Quartermaine

Elijah is considered the first settler in the district of Katanning. In 1851 he was grazing 1,900 sheep and, finding abundant water and feed for his sheep in the area,  Quartermaine permanently settled and was the first to secure land (1852). Descendants of Quartermaine still own and manage the property, which also has grave on it.
