MCGARVIES AND SYDNEY IN 1800s

 

These people represent the early publishing section of Sydney. They include the one woman Anne Howe .

There are members of the Presbyterian, Anglican and Methodist churches connected with the early papers. Convict and Free settlers. If John McGarvie were minister at Basil and Melinda’s marriage , there is at least the possibility of their being in some form of contact with this literary network which was based in the inner city of Sydney.

Another influence which appears in this group is the Temperance Movement ( most often associated with Wesleyan Methodism) . Mansfield and O’Shaughnessy both appear decadent in liquor in their youth then preacher and editor. Could again be a connection as early as the 1830s.

Note also McGarvies’ concern for the interests of the Australian Born,

Hi to All Listers

I must apologise. In my great excitement and enthusiasm I replied direct to
Sandy Bailey re. her ancestor George Howe.

One of my interests, William Mc Garvie, co founder of the Sydney Herald, was
employed in 1828 by Robert Howe, son of George.

Robert owned the Sydney Gazette and the Australian Stationery Warehouse.
William managed the Warehouse in Lower George Street Sydney.

There is a great deal of information in the Australian Dictionary of
Biography, regarding George Howe, his son Robert and another son George
Terry.

The Rev John McGarvie, brother to William, was the first Presbyterian
minister, enlisted by Doctor Lang, to come to Australia. William's widow
Isabella was grandmother to Dorothea Mackellar.
