Abstract

In January 1869 the Sydney Morning Herald and several other colonial newspapers reported the arrival of a Chinese woman on the Braiwood goldfields, reprinting an article that had earlier appeared in the Braiwood Dispacth.1 The aricle told how a Chinese storekeeper had "just returned from Melbourne with a Chinese lady whom his parents selected for him in his native land and sent out to him to become his wife'. They had been then gone together 'to his home at Jembaicumbene', a busting mining settlement 10 kilometres south of the town of Braiwood along the Major's Creek road.
