The Australian Agricultural Company was formed in London in 1824 to promote the raising of fine wool in New South Wales. Previous treatments of the Company's formation and early years have focussed principally on developments in New South Wales. In contrast, it is maintained here that the Company's genesis can only be fully understood in the context of the London financial market and imperial investment of the time; the family and business connections of the promoters and directors; and the changing nature of the British wool market. Further, it is argued, that the Company's survival through its first decade owed far more to the Court of Directors in London than ever previously acknowledged. The work is divided into two parts. Part I explores the context in which the Company was formed. Its four chapters cover the Stock Market boom of 1823-4 (which also saw the flotation of the Van Diemen's Land and Canada Companies); an analysis of the British shareholders, particularly the role of John Macarthur the younger (the son of John Macarthur of Parramatta and Camden): a survey of the British wool market; and the development of New South Wales wool to 1824 and its entry into the British market. The first two chapters of Part II sets out the circumstances surrounding the Company's formation in 1824...

661 p; The thesis deals with the colonies of New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land; it begins when J.T. Bigge's ideal had come to crisis, and ends with the gold rushes. By "J.T. Bigge's ideal” is meant a society in which the Church of England and a land-owning elite joined with the executive government to establish a way of life, both hierarchical and harmonious. The Church and the gentry respectively comprise the core of the first two chapters, which describe the ideology and strength of colonial conservatism. In the former the central figure is W.G. Broughton, first Anglican bishop in Australia and remarkably sensitive to the difficulties which beset the conservative ideal. His beliefs and insight shape not only this chapter but the whole thesis. Following a description of the typical Anglican reaction to the major features of colonial life, particular emphasis is placed on the Church's attempt to assert its opinion sometimes through, sometimes against the power of the State. Here, as at many other places throughout the thesis, the education issue becomes very prominent. The Church appears as the strongest bastion of conservative thought, denouncing every aspect of society which made for change and disruption. Although not numerous...

As the Napoleonic Wars convulsed Europe during the early nineteenth century, many more British young men than ever before became army officers, particularly during the latter part of the conflict, fought in Spain and Portugal between 1808 and 1814. The Peninsular War provided not only employment, but also the opportunity to climb the social ladder. As this thesis will demonstrate, the majority of British army commissions in this period were not purchased, and it was these men who later came to settle in the Australian colonies. After the demobilization of the British army following the battle of Waterloo in 1815, many officers found themselves on half-pay, doing the rounds of government offices seeking colonial positions; some were successful and were appointed to New South Wales. As well, many of those who came to New South Wales in garrison regiments, from 1817 onwards, found the place appealing and decided to settle. These British army officers, and those others who came in the next couple of decades, were a unique group of emigrants because of the skills they brought with them acquired in the army: self-discipline, self-reliance, the knowledge of how to discipline men, reconnaissance and exploring techniques, mapping...

This investigation is concerned with the establishment of science and scientific associations in the four ~gstern colonies of Australia, commencing with the Philosophical Society of Australasia (1821) and ending with the movement surrounding the formation of the Australasian Association for the Advancement of Science and other intercolonial organisations for science in the 1880's. With the death of Banks in 1820 there ended the first era of scientific investigation in Australia. In the 1820's the first efforts to institutionalise science were guided by Sir Thomas Brisbane and his scientific circle. These first experiments are considered against the background of reforming science in Britain, whose institutions were to profoundly affect the course and pattern of science in Australia. Science in Australia must be seen as part of the spread of 'western science' into 'colonial' territories. The first attempts to establish a local-based science in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land were ephemeral, affected very much by colonial politics, faction, individualism, lack of facilities and by the seeds of deep-seated and longstanding divisions among the principal proponents of science with differing aspirations and backgrounds. In Van Diemen's Land in the 1820's and 30's...

Dr. Stuart D. Scott has written extensively in the fields of prehistory and history. As an archaeologist, he has traveled to some of the most significant sites in the world, including Pompeii, Stonehenge, the Valley of the Kings, Egypt’s pyramids and the Taj Mahal. He spent nine months excavating with the Tikal Project in Guatemala before returning to the University of Arizona where he received a Ph.D. in 1963. He excavated in New Zealand as a Fulbright scholar in 1963-1964. In the fall of 1964, Dr. Scott started a long career in the Anthropology Department of the State University of New York. He taught graduate and undergraduate archaeology courses and continued his archaeological and historical research. In 1979, Scott established the Old Fort Niagara Archaeology in Progress Project at Old Fort Niagara in Youngstown, New York. For many years, he became involved with historical archaeology in western New York. It was during this work that he became interested in the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837-1838 and its aftermath. Dr. Scott and his wife, Patricia Kay Scott, would use Christmas breaks, summer vacations, and sabbatical years to travel. They were repeatedly lured back to the South Pacific, conducting research in New Zealand...

This article addresses a complex nexus of discourse and praxis: varying Enlightenment visions of Man; emergent ideas about human differences; and encounters between European scientific voyagers and Indigenous people in New Holland (Australia) and Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) at the start of the nineteenth century. Discursively, I trace two strands of anthropological thinking. One, philosophical and economic, is epitomized in French and Scottish stadial theory. The other is naturalist and culminated in Buffon's natural history of man. Both were appropriated from the late eighteenth century by a nascent science of race. With respect to praxis, I chart the reciprocal impact of metropolitan theory, antipodean experience and local agency by selective comparison of materials produced by the voyages of Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin in Australian waters in 1801-1803. �

On Christmas Day in 1788, on the eve of a year which was to see the entire Atlantic world once more convulsed with revolution and war, a struggling farmer and occasional fisherman from the village of Mousehole in western Cornwall turned his back on the sea. William Carvosso had never found maritime life to his liking, and for some time been looking for an opportunity to, in his words, support himself and his family "wholly on the land." So when that opportunity finally did arise Carvosso was quick to move his young family to a rented farm near the inland village of Ponsanooth. With a little capital and zealous stewardship Carvosso began to thrive in his new home. The move, which at first glance seemed to take the family from cosmopolitan littoral to parochial isolation, was actually the first step of an intergenerational journey that saw Carvosso's children and grandchildren witness convict hangings in Van Diemen's Land, the Tai-ping Rebellion in Shanghai, Blackfoot and Plains Cree horse raids on the Great Plains, and the trafficking of indentured labor from India to the Caribbean. The vehicle which transported the Carvossos about the globe - and which facilitated their rise as a family from the laboring classes to the lower reaches of respectability and beyond - was the Wesleyan Methodist Connexion and its ancillary Missionary Society. The following dissertation is concerned with the Carvossos' movements...

This paper examines intellectual interchanges between European theorists in the science of man and sailors, naturalists and artists on scientific voyages in Oceania during the century after 1750. I argue that travellers' narratives and ethnographic representations were not mere reflexes of dominant metropolitan discourses, but were also personal productions generated in the tensions and ambiguities of cross-cultural encounters. I identify countersigns of indigenous agency embedded in such materials and evaluate their trajectory from the interactions which provoked them, through varied genres and media of voyagers' representations, to their contorted appropriation by European savants. My examples are drawn from British and French accounts of visits to New Holland and Van Diemen's Land between 1770 and 1802. In this paper, Aboriginal Australians, especially Tasmanians, serve as synecdoche for the indigenous inhabitants of Oceania generally, using the regional term in its extended early 19th-century sense which encompassed the present Indonesia and Australia along with Papua New Guinea, Aotearoa/New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
