During the 1840's the clamour of dissatisfaction from the free settlers in the colonies of Australia caused many an eyebrow to lift at Westminster. It was hard to appreciate how British people a few years removed from their homeland could get themselves in such a turmoil when the issues seen from London seemed so clear cut. When it was more or less decided to give the colonists the independent institutions they seemed to want so much, Earl Grey, Secretary of State for the Colonies, requested Lieutenant Governor Denison of Van Diemen's Land to send home a description of the sort of people these colonists really were.
