JANE KENDALL AND CAROLINE CHISHOLM

 

FERNY GLEN

CHRISTINA JANE – BORN in 1842 Kirmington Ulladulla. Eldest daughter of Melinda and Basil.

is purported to have at one time taught in a school of Caroline Chisholm’s. She is also ‘said to’ have taught with her mother in Sydney and in Fernhill on the Illawarra. ( detailed entry later). For today, I am seeking information on CAROLINE CHISHOLM. I suspect that the sisters of 2 generations have been overlooked (in favour of the male family members) i.e :

  • McNALLYS – MARY , ELIZA AND SARAH. (What happened to baby John ? )

 

  • KENDALLS – CHRISTINA JANE, MARY JOSEPHINE (also a teacher who married Mr Yates in Port Macquarie where she was a teacher at Mrs Halloran’s School) and EDITH EMILY.

LETTERS CARO 1850

GOULBURN NSW

Take a wander down Grafton Street and you’ll see a bright red letterbox that was installed in 1859. The high mail slot was so that people on horses could post their letters without having to dismount. Goulburn Public School, in Bourke Street, was opened by Sir Henry Parkes (the father of Federation) who was then the President of the Education Department, in 1868. Caroline Chisholm’s Immigration Barracks were in the school grounds until they were demolished (despite numerous protests by historians) by the Education Department in the 1970′s. Caroline Chisholm, one of the most remarkable Australian women during the first half of the 19th century, would meet every immigrant ship as it berthed in Sydney so that she could organise employment for the girls in country areas.

EXTRACT FROM INTERNET ARCHIVE SEARCH. SAMSID CHISHOLM

Caroline Chisholm led the way in the campaign to establish the working class family in 1847. She advised the British government that if they wanted to establish a “good and great people” they must appreciate that:

For all the clergy you can despatch, all the schoolmasters you can ap­point, all the churches you can build, and all the books you can export, will never do much good without what a gentleman in that Colony very appropriately called ‘God’s police’ – wives and little children – good and virtuous women.[i]

LAMBERT 3

MAITLAND NSW
Development was fostered by a bridge over Wallis Creek in 1827 and a road from Windsor in 1831. A government town had been planned by 1829 and substantial administrative buildings were erected. The government town was proclaimed as Maitland in 1833. When the other settlement became known as West Maitland in 1834 confusion arose. As a result the boundaries were clarified and the names East Maitland and West Maitland were adopted in 1835. The combined population the following year was 1163. The three neighbouring villages became an important focus of the river trade with a regular river steamer service operating along the Lower Hunter to Newcastle. Caroline Chisholm founded one of her Female Emigrants’ Homes at East Maitland in 1842. The Maitland Mercury was established in 1843, making it one of the oldest surviving Australian newspapers.

SOME months ago, adverting to the intention of Mrs. Chisholm to visit the neighbouring colony of Victoria, we drew the consideration of the Tasmanian colonists to the advantage which would accrue to the best interests of this island from sending to that benevolent and influential lady a special letter of invitation, requesting her to visit Tasmania before her return to Europe, for the purpose of forming an estimate of tile eligibility of this colony for the settlement of British emigrants, and, more particularly, in order that she might disabuse her mind, ,by means of actual experience, of the scandalous misapprehensions under which she has hitherto laboured with regard to our religious and social condition,

(From the S. M. Herald.)

A series of suggestions for the carrying out a plan for the formation of a family colonization scheme is contained in the South Australian Register of February 23. This scheme originates with Mrs. Chisholm, and is being attended to and advanced with her customary energy. The following is a summary of its objects :
