George and Henry Cox were the fourth and fifth sons of William Cox, builder of Cox’s Road across the Blue Mountains. The Cox family were well-known as pastoralists. In 1828, they managed the properties of Burrundulla and Broombee in the Mudgee district.
Conrad Martens visited the Mudgee district in March 1840 and these paintings are a result of the drawings he made during his visit.
