The Wollaston Journals: Volume 3, 1848-1856
The Wollaston Journals – Volume 3 is the final volume of a revised edition of the journals of John Ramsden Wollaston, an Anglican clergyman who migrated to Australia with his family in 1841. Volume 3 covers the period 1848–1856, during which Reverend Wollaston was transferred from Bunbury to Albany and subsequently appointed the first Archdeacon of Western Australia.
Volume 3 differs from the previous two by including a significantly greater proportion of Wollaston’s correspondence – private, official and public – which reveal his relationships with friends, colleagues and government officers; topics of contemporary religious and social discourse; and particular projects such as the development of the Annesfield Aboriginal community in Albany.
