James Badgery and Elizabeth Lundie married on 9th October 1793 and migrated to New South Wales aboard the Walker in 1799. James (1768-1827) had been born at Exeter, Devon and Elizabeth (1773-1949) at Poltimore, Devon. The Colony was just eleven years old at that time and very much a penal settlement. Farming was crucial, to both sustain the growing population and to provide exports to grow the economy. James initially obtained a 100 acre grant of land on the Nepean River, north of Penrith, where Yarramundi stands today. Within a decade his selection, together with that granted to his sons, stood at more than 1,000 acres. He also had 840 acres straddling Badgerys Creek and bordered by South Creek, at Bringelly, with a fine house that he named "Exeter", in honour of his birthplace. However, with his herds and flocks growing, James needed yet more land. Governor Macquarie granted him 500 acres in the New South Wales Southern Highlands, where the village of Exeter now stands.[1]

James and Elizabeth are commemorated by the name given their creek and the suburb that developed on their South Creek land, Badgerys Creek.[2]

James and Elizabeth had a daughter and four sons, all born in New South Wales:
