I also research and write on:
First Fleet female convicts
Especially Susannah Huffnell, who came from Worcestershire on the Lady Penrhyn in 1788.
A Frenchman sent out to Australia as a convict in 1820 and released after just six weeks
Frank Austin Williams
Possibly Australia’s first professional set designer and interior decorator
[file to come later]
Fannie Eleanor Williams
The first professional female staff member at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Melbourne after serving in the Australian Army Nursing Service in the Great War.
