Jacob Busch migrated from Germany to Australia in 1855, arriving in Sydney aboard the “Peru” on 23 May and settled in the Hunter Valley. He brought with him his second wife, Elizabeth (nee Gregorius), and four children from an earlier marriage to Christina (nee Spengler), namely Johan, Christina, Magdalena and Jacobus.
Around 1880 he moved to Rosemount Vineyard near Denman and eventually retired to live in the nearby township. He dropped the letter c from his surname prior to being naturalised in 1884. Jacob and Elizabeth had 7 children.
