Details

Etching from 'A narrative of a visit to the Australian colonies' by James Backhouse, 1843. The property Kelvedon located near Swansea, Tasmania, was the home of Francis and Anna Maria Cotton. Despite isolation, raids by Aborigines, fear of bushrangers, and destruction by fire the Cottons prospered as sheep farmers. James Backhouse (1794-1869) was a naturalist and Quaker missionary.
