Who Were the First Australians, and How Many Were There? - ScienceNOW

Who Were the First Australians, and How Many Were There? - ScienceNOW | contact history | Scoop.it

Some 40,000 to 50,000 years ago, a band of intrepid Southeast Asians became the first humans to reach Australia, and without a single glance at a GPS unit. Now new research suggests that perhaps 3000 people—many more than previously thought—made that foray into the unknown to become the continent's founding population and the ancestors of Australia's aboriginal people.

Biography - James Squire

James Squire (1755?-1822), brewer and farmer, arrived in the Charlotte in the First Fleet, having been convicted for highway robbery at Kingston, Surrey, England, on 11 April 1785 and sentenced to transportation for seven years. He was one of the earliest, if not the first, to brew beer in the colony and the first to cultivate the hop plant in Australia successfully.

From the first day of the English colony in New South Wales in 1788, European men, women and children were all represented although the ratio of male to female colonists was seven to one. From 1793 onwards, women arrived as free settlers. A government bounty encouraged the migration of young married couples and single women.

Shannon Pulver's curator insight, November 10, 2013 5:57 PM

This article explains how women in the colonisation of Australia were in a way inprisoned in their own country, but were also given opporunties to improve their situation.
