Rev. Robert Cartwright, born 1771, died 1856 [framed portrait]

Robert Cartwright (1771-1856), emigrated to NSW as an Anglican chaplain in 1810. He worked in the Hawkesbury district and at Windsor for several years. Cartwright was a strong supporter of Governor Macquarie and his Aboriginal welfare policies. He also accompanied Macquarie on an expedition across the Blue Mountains, preaching the first sermon near Lake Bathurst in 1820. Cartwright was appointed to Liverpool in 1819 and remained there for seventeen years, until he was made incumbent of St. James' Sydney.
