By December 1791, Anderson had two of his fifty acres under cultivation and Tench, noted for his acerbic comments regarding the slovenly, had nothing to say about him when he visited the area. In 1802 he had thirteen acres under wheat and maize, and four years later purchased 130 acres at the Hawkesbury where he raised wheat, maize, peas, beans, potatoes, an orchard and kitchen garden, 30 pigs and 104 acres of pasture, in spite of problems with Aborigines, convict runaways and floods.

In February 1816, Anderson, aged 55, was murdered by his wife, who was caught and executed for the crime and her body dissected and anatomised, as was the practice of the time.
