About this Item

ix, 227pp, 4pp b/w plates, appendix: List of books in Elizabeth Farm, 1854, bibliography, index. Papered boards in dust-jacket. From the Introduction, This is the study of 'a pioneer woman whose colonial experiences began with the arrival of the Second Fleet in Sydney in 1790 and ended with her death in 1850, on the eve of the gold discoveries. Because one or more members of her family were continually in England from 1797 when Edward, the eldest son, was sent home to school, and they were much in Elizabeth Macarthur's mind, the scene shifts continually between Australia and Europe'.

About this title


Elizabeth MacArthur, with her husband John and their infant son, left England in the notorious Second Fleet and arrived in Sydney in 1790. When she first arrived, conditions were primitive, the food supply uncertain, and little was known of the country beyond the tiny settlement. By 1850 when she died, the settlement had spread over much of the colony of New South Wales and the staple export, wool, was well established. She, her husband and sons made a significant contribution to the latter development.
