Abstract

Sketch from the scrapbook of Sarah E.E. Mitchell of Lisdillon on the East Coast of Tasmania 1874.

Sketch 77 - Taken June 1875 - by Catherine Mitchell.
When Dr & Mrs Rundle & baby Maud came out in the “Niobe” from England, they came to stay with us, before going to Plas Newydd, Swansea, as Glamorgan doctor Mark went for them & drove them, Amy & MJM, through from Avoca. Poor Mrs Rundle fainted as she got out of the pagnel cart & was some time recovering & asked for her baby. Our father was nearly lost in a boat when they bought Lisdillon, & so they left it on the Sandbank & never used ‘it’ again. Having visitors & Amy back they came out over Lisdillon Rivulet bar – Dr & Mrs Rundle, Kate P.M, S.E.E.M, went out. I do not remember Father’s going again. We are going out by the Bird-Rock, & the Reef is South. For years the Rivulet goes out that side, then the other side for years

The sketches by Catherine Penwarne (Kate), eldest daughter of John and Catherine Mitchell (of Cornwall, England, who settled at Lisdillon, East Coast Tasmania in 1852) were made between 1860 and 1876, and portray aspects of 19th Century social and domestic life. Catherine’s sketches were compiled by her sister Sarah. E.E.Mitchell. Derived from her own collection, from those of friends and relations, and from John Ball, Kate's husband, they were compiled sometime between 1928 and 1933. The sketches are mounted in an album, together with: locks of Kate's hair on red silk; a pressed fern arrangement; a coloured photograph of John and Catherine Ball; and coloured views of Buckland Churchyard in 1850, showing the grave of Paul Thomas Mitchell, aged 3 days, and in 1879 showing the grave of Catherine Penwarne Ball. The scrapbook was bequeathed to The Royal Society of Tasmania in 1946.
