      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
      Approach to Chippers Leap

      Chippers Leap, formerly known as Chipper's Leap, is a granite outcrop on Greenmount Hill in Perth, Western Australia. It is located at 31º54'S 116º04'E[1], on the northern side of Great Eastern Highway, near the border between the suburbs of Swan View and Greenmount.

      Chippers Leap is named for John Chipper, who jumped from the rock on 3 February 1832 while trying to escape an attack by a party of Noongars. Chipper and a 14-year-old boy named Reuben Beacham had been driving a cart from Guildford to York along the York Road (now Old York Road) when they were attacked by Noongars. Beacham was killed and Chipper was speared but managed to escape, jumping from the rock and eventually reaching Governor James Stirling's house at Woodbridge.

      In the early 1930s the Main Roads Board planned a realignment of the York Road that ultimately resulted in the construction of the present Great Eastern Highway. The original plans had the road passing through Chippers Leap. After representations by the Western Australian Historical Society, the plans were changed to allow the road to pass close by the rock, thus not only preserving the rock but also increasing its visual effect and exposure. The road itself was not constructed until the 1960s.[2]
      The plaque at Chippers Leap

      At 8:30pm on 3 February 1932, the centenary of Chipper's leap, the Western Australian Historical Society dedicated a plaque in memory of the event. Around 200 people attended a dedication ceremony at the rock. The plaque reads:

          ON THE 3RD OF FEBRUARY 1832. JOHN CHIPPER AND REUBEN BEACHAM A BOY OF FOURTEEN, WHILE DRIVING A CART FROM GUILDFORD TO YORK, WERE ATTACKED BY NATIVES NEAR THIS SPOT. BEACHAM WAS KILLED BUT CHIPPER ALTHOUGH SPEARED, ESCAPED AND LEAPED FROM THIS ROCK, NOW KNOWN AS CHIPPER'S LEAP, AND EVENTUALLY REACHED GOVERNOR STIRLING'S HOUSE AT WOODBRIDGE[3]

      For most of the 1960s through to the 1980s the rock face just west of the plaque featured an item of graffiti in white paint, reading "All have sinned" Towards the end of the 1990s it was replaced for a short time by "Please Turn Over". For at least the last ten years now it has been painted out and graffiti free.

      The plaque is adjacent to a very busy highway with no facilities for pedestrians, so it is not recommended as a stopping place at any time of day or night. A small section of parking area on the highway is available 100 metres to the west, just before a new sign "Perth Hills'.

      It is listed on the Places Database of the Heritage Council of Western Australia, but is not afforded legislative protection.

      There are plaques at other sites from the same year placed by the Western Australian Historical Society, one can be found at the Round House in Fremantle

      There are similar granite outcrops in this area of the Darling Scarp in John Forrest National Park to the north, and to the south Darlington, and Boya, Western Australia

        Tarring Connections Continue Down Under
      Edited by Rob Blann

      This article was first published in the West Sussex Gazette in 1993

      Whatever happened to two Tarring families who emigrated from England more than a century and a half ago to a new colony on the other side of the world?

      A letter I have just received from Kim Chipper in Australia starts to tell the tale:

      'A family friend who was in England recently handed me a copy of a newspaper article by yourself about 'Curly' Norris (WSG 4/3/93) in which he talked of the Chippers of Tarring. Being the self-appointed Chipper historian in Australia for about the last 20+ years I was interested to see the article, and it neatly fitted in with some information that came to hand a couple of months ago and started me thinking of contacting a newspaper in the Tarring area for help. I'm hoping all the signs are propitious!

      'The things that came to hand were a series of letters written by the members of the Henty family who left England in 1829 on the Caroline for the colony of Western Australia. They took with them a just-married couple: John Chipper as an indentured carpenter's labourer and his wife Mary nee Whidby. When they arrived in WA they gave their 'place from' as West Tarring.

      'They arrived safely in Freemantle on 12 October 1829 after four months at sea with only one stop in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on the way.

      'Quoting from James Henty's letter to his father on 2 August 1829: 'Captain Bartholomew of the brig Williams of Arundel has good naturedly offered to take letters free of postage and I have therefore availed myself of the opportunity not only of sending our own but many for the men.'

      'The Henty letters started me thinking; John and Mary were literate and would have almost certainly written to their parents and friends back home and maybe, just maybe, some or all of these letters survived till today. If so, I would love to read them, either as originals or as copies. The trip to WA would have been quite an adventure for them, from reading Henty's letters.'

      Kim is writing a book on this trip, one chapter of which will give the Chippers point of view. As a matter of interest, the Henty letters are held in the Battye Library (the WA State Archives library).

      In 1979 Kim organised a 150th anniversary reunion of all the Chippers descending from John and Mary. 'It turned out to be quite an event.'
      At the reunion, a Professor of Economic History, Reg Appleyard, spoke on what conditions were like for the first settlers. It was Reg who, prior to the meeting, had had the honour of writing the Chipper family entry in the National Directory of Biography, for which a number of distinguished Australian families had been selected for entry, only a few of which were from Western Australia. The Chippers were among these.

      The original Chipper emigrants were servants to Henty, who as a settler approved by the British Government of the day would have been granted land according to the value of capital goods taken with them. If a settler took a plough and shovels, even stock of given value, then he was granted an appropriate acreage of land. This had appealed to farmers in the southeast of England who would be landlords and their indentured servants would provide the labour. In fact for each indentured servant taken to the colony a settler received an extra grant of land. Many of the indentured servants were drawn from the poor houses in the southeast of England and in many ways were unsuitable as potential farm workers. Even so, the first settlers sailed for Australia with much enthusiasm, and that probably includes their servants.

      In the closing moments of Reg's historic speech at that 1979 reunion he contemplated what the conditions must have been like for those early settlers:

      'Coming half way across the world to such a place has been compared with landing on the moon -- the unknowns were just as great. Given the misinformation that had been disseminated in England before they left, it was almost inevitable that the first settlers would face great hardship when they arrived. Many stayed and 'toughed it out', though many went away. The Hentys went to Tasmania; the Chippers stayed. It was tough going; it was very tough going. Some of them made a lot of money; some of them didn't. Some indentured servants became landowners; some of them went away; and some of them dissipated their wealth and their life in drink. The isolated settlement just hung on. Even 21 years after first settlement there were still less than 5,000 people in the whole colony. It had been one struggle after another. The formative years in any place are the early years. First families became first traders. Churches and schools were built. Children of families intermarried, their children providing much of the new population because so few immigrants came once the conditions faced by the settlers were known back in England.'

      It was afterwards that convicts were transported there. Later on came the gold rush and after that the wheat belt settlers.

      If you know of a Henty or a Chipper, do show them this article as they may, just may, be in possession of a 19th century letter written from Down Under or might possibly have some other memento.

    • This Tarring Church's records show that the Chippers of the 16th C were its chief minstrels. It is said that there has been a George Chipper in Tarring for the last 500 years. When Thomas Henty sailed to Australia in 1831 with John and Mary Chipper on board, it was the current George Chipper who drove the sheep to Deptford to be put on board the vessel, 'Caroline'.

      All of the 70 registrations of births of CHIPPER 1841 to 1905 are descendants of John and Mary Chipper.

      "James arrived in Launceston in the middle of January 1832". p. 226 "John Chipper was not available to go with James; no longer employed by Henty, he was working at Guildford at his trade of carpenter and doing well, eventually buying Camfield's Helena River property, Clayton. A few days after Henty left the colony Chipper was attacked by natives at Greenmount on the York Road and severely wounded; the name Chipper's Rock commemorates the episode, marking the place where he leapt to safety. His companion, fourteen-year old Reuben Beecham, of Barnham, Sussex, was killed (W.A. Arch.)." Note 1 of p. 228 "The Hentys". Marnie Basset

      GOXHILL TO THE SWAN:
      The story of the Beacham family is very dramatically described in Goxhill to the Swan. *"He and his wife and their five children arrived per "Lotus" on the 6th October, 1829. Tragedy dogged this family. Mary died in 1830, followed by their daughter Elizabeth in the same year. Two years later Reuben William Beecham was speared to death at Greenmount."
      "Carrying provisions to those settlers, John Chipper and Beecham, a boy were driving a cart over Greenmount when they were attacked by Blacks. The boy was killed almost instantly, but Chipper, though wounded in one arm and having a spear sticking in his side, escaped by jumping over the rock that now bears his name - "Chippers Leap."
      William Beecham was to become a prominent settler in the colony.

      Chipper's Leap, Greenmount, Western Australia
      In February 1832, John Chipper and Reuben Beecham were attacked by a group of Aboriginals as they were travelling the York Road. Beecham was killed and Chipper, death staring him in the face, had to flee. He jumped off this rock into the scrub below and ran away as fast as his legs would carry him. The Aboriginals, not having quite the same imperative, lost the advantage and Chipper lived to tell the tale.
