Abstract

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

Sketch 112 - Taken about 1866 to 1869 - by Catherine Mitchell.
Fred Shaw, son of Edward Carr Shaw of Red Banks, Swansea, riding to Triabunna called Spring Bay, then. His pony was short & his legs long so Kate made them longer for fun. Father, Mr William John Lyne & Kate meet him as they ride to Swansea. He used to play cricket matches there. Later he & Mrs Shaw had Red Banks, & turned out & built The Bluff House, for Edward Bernard Shaw, when he married Lois Mary Mitchell, of Mayfield, 19 Jan 1913. E.H.J, & Annie M Mitchell’s second daughter.
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.
