The builder of this diminutive single-manual instrument is unknown, though its origins are thought to be English and dating from the nineteenth century.

It was reportedly in the possession of Ronald Sharp, Sydney before c.1968, and of Graham Whale, Sydney from c.1968. Graham Whale provided a new reservoir.

The organ was aquired by the late Alan Moffat around 1972, and was located at his residences at Bardwell Park, NSW (until 1984), Grafton, NSW (1984-1988), and Wangaratta, Vic. (1988-1994). It was moved to its present location in 1994.

Alan Moffat died of cancer in 2003, and the organ remains in the possession of his sister.
