Sketch portrait of a colonial-era woman.

Harriott Blaxland c 1840

Harriott Blaxland was wife of industrialist and grazier John Blaxland, who built ‘Newington’ on the Parramatta River. The Blaxlands came to NSW as free settlers. They were dismayed at first by the colony — ‘hardly better than a wretched gaol’ — and found a mere 13 families with whom they could associate.
