Henry Rae was granted 560 acres in two portions in the Parish of Hexham on 27 May 1825 and 12 November 1825. He sold this land in 1827 to Edward Spark.

Adjoining land originally granted to Kerry Lyne, James Cracknell and William Mayberry was purchased by Edward Sparke's son John, the whole of which later became the farm known as Wybah.

Henry Rae later moved to Maitland where he was an active member of the community.
