Our History

Cormiston Legal was established in March 2012 by Sam Pratt.

The name comes from the farm where Sam’s wife Karen grew up - Cormiston, which was settled in 1824 on the banks of the Tamar River by Archibald Thomson (Karen’s great-great-great grandfather).

Archibald Thomson was part of the early wave of colonists who settled in Northern Tasmania, leaving Scotland in 1822 on the ship “Castle Forbes” to take up a land grant in Van Diemen’s Land. The land was developed and worked on by assigned convicts for many years, until transportation ceased in the 1850’s.

By the 1860’s, the property had expanded to almost 5,000 acres and had a newly-built two storey Victorian Italianate style home. The house was lived in by the family for several generations, but in later years it was left derelict and the farm subdivided up.

However in a new chapter, the c. 1860 Cormiston House was restored in 2006 and is now lived in again by a new generation of the family – Karen and Sam and their two children, who are the seventh generation of the family to have lived there.
