Before the introduction of photography most educated people were taught to sketch. A great deal of our knowledge of early colonial cities, villages and buildings in general is due to the habit such people had of sketching what interested them. Tasmania was very fortunate in this respect. The purpose of this paper is to record what is known of Charlotte Cleveland, an amateur artist who left behind a few sketches of considerable historical interest. The information in this account has come firstly from Mr. A. H. Weedon, Charlotte Cleveland's grandson, and secondly from an article "The History of the Cleveland or Ainslie Estate" contained in a pamphlet on Cosgrove Park Home published by the Launceston General Hospital when Cosgrove Park was opened.
