Abraham was described as a 25 year old labourer of Suffolk, religion - Church of England, able to read only. Harriet was 25 and could read & write. Eliza Ann was 4 and William an infant.

Their 'disposal' was to J Carpenter of Yarram on Aug 12, wages being £52 p.a. the term 12 months. Mr Carpenter was a sawmiller and contractor and operated a flour and saw mill adjacent to the Tarra River in Yarram, or the Barkly Township as it was called by Carpenter. He worked for Carpenter for 7 years and then rented the Aylesbury property from him for 4 years before purchasing it.
Newspaper reports states that there was little work in Melbourne for the new immigrants.
     Another Abraham Bland, aged 37, an English labourer from Adelaide arrived in Melbourne in February 1852 aboard the Charlotte Jane.
     In 1860 and again in 1870 Abraham was elected trustee of the Public Hall.
     Mr Bland arrived Port Albert from Melbourne on "Royal Shepherd". Abraham was a farmer and miller in Yarram, from 1864. In 1864 he took over the Barkly Flour & Sawmill from John Carpenter and continued to operate this along with his grazing property. The Mill was destroyed by fire in October 1870. In 1872 he was elected to the Alberton Shire Council for one term to 1875. At this time he purchased a property near Sale called Crosslea where he resided for 3 years. In 1882 he purchased 800 acres in Reeves Survey which he divided between two sons, George & James a year or two later. [James & William each had 320 acres at Woranga from 1882]. During the eighties he was a foundation member of the Yarram Agricultural Society.
     On July 10 1891 a committee of prominent citizens was formed to investigate the possibility of establishing a co-operative butter factory in Yarram. Mr Bland was elected chairman of this committee. On the recommendation of this committee the first general meeting to form a company was held on July 23 1891. Bland was elected as one of seven directors, a position he held until his death. The factory site was purchased from Mr Bland.

Abraham Bland of Boisdale, formerly of Yarram bought the property on the death of the former owner John James English in February 1885. It was bought in two lots for £3000. In the summer of 1886 misfortune struck, when the outbuildings caught fire. The glow of flames could be seen from Sale, and Sale's fledging fire brigade attended, with twenty men and the fire engine. By the time they arrived, badly hampered by lack of water, little could be done. The outbuildings, containing large quantities of oats, peas, chaff and other produce, lay in smouldering ruins. Damage was estimated at £700. Bland was uninsured and sold up in 1888. The buyer was George Linton.
     Abraham Bland made a will dated 15 July 1896 in Yarram, Victoria.
     Abraham died of heart disease on 30 July 1897 in 'Aylesbury', Yarram, Victoria, aged 65. The Gippsland Standard reported that The owner of the this picturesque and well kept estate on the banks of the Tarra was in his usual health at breakfast time. He left his residence to proceed to an adjoining paddock to superintend some ploughing operations. After handling the rather fresh and active horses for a while Mr Bland felt a sudden pain at the heart, and at once walked up to the house, whence his wife administered a homely palliative and advised him to retire to his room. He was at once assisted to undress, but he had only got into bed when the final spasm came, and with a wave of the hand towards his wife he uttered the name of Jesus twice, and immediately expired. Mrs Bland had sent for Dr. Birch but so sudden was the sad event that the messenger could hardly have been clear of the gate when the death message was given. He was buried on 1 August 1897 in the Church of England section, Alberton. Their headstone reads: Abraham Bland, 65, Yarram, C/E. Headstone: In Loving Memory Of my dear husband Abraham Bland who died 30th July 1897 aged 65 years. At Rest. Also his beloved wife Harriett who died 23rd Dec. 1909 aged 77 years. Father and Mother
