Abstract

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

Sketch 113 - Taken 1874 - by Catherine Mitchell.
Mr Lloyd, an artist. He came to Lisdillon during a hop feast. He said he would go to the Barn, and change his clothes first which he did. Talking to our mother – of some one said “He has the gift of the gab, mum” – He made up his luggage with the straps under, lay down on it and straped them round his front. He is leaving with a lot of animals – swans, turkeys, sheep, pigs, cows and a dog. At Cambria, Swansea, Mrs John Meredith’s name was Maria - he said he was so pleased to see dear Maria!- Maria Island he meant, and they found, presently, what is was; & used to tease her ever after about it.
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.
