Willie Price of the Worimi clan

Willie Price of the Worimi clan claims land at Port Stephens. One of the earliest recorded claims by the Worimi people for the return of part of their lands is by Tom Price. Willie Price asks for land in 1873 at Nelson’s Bay near Karuah, and he too is told that as an existing coastal reserve is in force, his land will be secure enough if it was held only as ‘permissive occupancy’. Although Price is unable to gain further security over the land, the Lands Department is prepared to confirm his right of occupation in 1892 when it is queried.
