Ruin: Ponton's Homestead.

The Ponton Brothers Stephen and William had arrived in Fremantle from England in 1859. Stephen was married to Anne Ryan after he had been granted a conditional pardon from a convict settlement. There were two children from this marriage before his wife became ill and died.
The brothers formed a partnership with John Sharp who had been in Albany and they were keen to explore for pastoral land to settle. The Ponton brothers, accompanied by John Sharp, passed through Esperance from Albany with a horse and a dray, horses, sheep and cattle, in order to seek and establish new homesteads. They settled east at Point Malcolm and Pine Hill.
