Abstract

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

Sketch 129 - Taken 1868 - by Catherine Mitchell.
Miss Fanny Blythe, Dr Blythe’s daughter from Shrub End, near Sorrell, who had been staying at Lisdillon. Edwin offended her by giving her a fly, which she screamed at. Harry Carter had been hunting and piled the skins on his horse in front and back of the saddle, he could hardly get up. Kate was going with them to stay in Town or Richmond. Father, Mother, looking on, & Amy M.J.M holding Kate’s stag-hound – Jessie Radcliffe & I talking by Lisdillon front door.

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.
