Regular extention' of the streets applies mainly to Surry Hills and further south. Peter Lewis Bemi (1795-1853) was a convict draftsman in Mitchell's Survey Department. Dismissed in 1830 much against Mitchell's will, Bemi established himself as a land surveyor. On verso in Bemi's hand: "A Present from Major Mitchell to P.L. Bemi." "Sir T.L. Mitchell to P.L. Bemi."
