John Warby was a convict explorer transported to Sydney on the Pitt in February 1792. After his 7 years sentence expired in 1803 Warby acquired 50 acres at Prospect and was appointed official government herdsman for the Cowpastures District and later acted as Governor Macquarie's guide through the Cowpastures in 1810 and again in 1815.
He also served as a guide to Police parties when pursuing unfriendly natives. In 1816 Warby was granted 260 acres at Campbelltown where he built his house, a "barn" and stables.
By 1826 John Warby had built a house, granary, barn, stables, storeroom and a hut for assigned labourers.
It is believed the barn and stables were once converted for use as dwellings and the out buildings demolished in the 1960's. John Warby died at his house on 12th June 1851. His wife, Sarah lived on until 19th October 1869. At the time of Warbys death there were eleven surviving children.
Today the "barn" is used as Colonial Motor Inn's reception and conference room.
