Capt. Daniel Woodriff, R.N., went to sea in 1762, and in 1804 visited Port Jackson, receiving from Gov. King a grant of land called Rodley Farm, at Penrith N.S.W. (see "Capt. Daniel Woodriff, C.B., R.N." by D.C. Tilghman in The Victorian Historical Magazine, Vol. XXXII, no. 3, Feb. 1962, p. 143-59). Capt. Woodriff's son, Daniel James, took part in the battle of Trafalgar and his son, Daniel James the younger, came to N.S.W. to settle on the Penrith family property, passed to his sons, including Frederick Daniel, in 1881.
