John Harris (Australian settler) (1841-1910) 〔''Sydney Morning Herald'' 19 October 1910 Deaths〕 He was born in Ireland, his father's name was Samuel Harris of Ireland and he was the brother of David Harris of Rochester who lived in New York, United States. In 1832 he acquired a tailor named William Brown who came on the ''Isabella'' (4),〔''Sydney Gazette & NSW Advertiser'' 14 June 1832〕 a labourer named John Hilliard who came on the ''Marquis of Hastings''〔''Sydney Gazette & NSW Advertiser'' 21 June 1832〕 and a ploughman named Thomas O'Neill who came on the ''Sophia''.〔''Sydney Gazette & NSW Advertiser'' 5 July 1832〕 At that time John Harris was living at his residence at Shanes Park. In July 1840 he subscribed £50 towards the building of the Presbyterian Church at Windsor.〔''The Colonist'' - Sydney NSW 25 July 1840〕 Between 1847 and 1848 he was the publican of the Travellers Inn in the Penrith district.〔NSW State Archives〕 In 1859 he was selling his Diggers Arms inn that was situated opposite Minchinbury on the Western Road.〔''Sydney Morning Herald'' 16 September 1859〕 In 1864 he was on the committee of the Penrith Flood Relief Fund.〔''Sydney Morning Herald'' 11 July 1864〕 In 1867 he used his boat to pluck several residents from their flooded homes at Llandilo when almost every farmer's crops were destroyed.〔''Sydney Morning Herald'' 28 June 1867〕 In 1881 he was making a monetary claim on the NSW Government Public Works regarding the resumption of his land on the west side of Darling Harbour.〔''The Burrows News'' 2 December 1881〕 In 1882 he donated ₤50 to the Lang Memorial.〔''Freemans Journal'' 4 November 1882〕 In 1887 during the St Mary's Bullock Roast and Sports Day on Victoria Park the bullock was donated by John Harris.〔''Nepean Times'' 13 August 1887〕 In 1891 he built the St Marys Hall at St Marys.〔''Nepean Times'' 17 October 1891〕 He died at his residence at Shanes Park at the age of 69 years in 1910.〔''Sydney Morning Herald'' 19 October 1910〕 There is a death notice in the ''Singleton Argus'' dated 23 December 1891 that says he was run over by a train at Harris Park but that was Surgeon Dr John Harris (no relation).
In 1960, the eastern portion of Shane's Park was purchased by the commonwealth government to house an air navigational facility. Substantial heritage from this facility remains to this day. As this required very little space, most areas of the site were retained as intact bushland, while other areas regenerated naturally. The 560 site known as 'Shane's Park' now comprises one of the largest remaining woodlands in the Cumberland Plain (western Sydney).
