Artist's Description

This is a water colour painting of my ancestor James Turner who came out to Australia as a free settler in 1830 bringing his family and workers, and animals(including rabbits!) and his prefabricated house(!) with him!
In London he had been a prosperous builder and had been promised land at Freemantle but when they got there all the land had been given away to the friends
of the people in charge of the state so he ended up having to settle at Augusta about 300 miles south of Perth.
His diary on the ship they came out on is in the Battye Library and there are other diaries about what occurred when they settled in Augusta. The story has always fascinated me.
