More Photo Albums....

Arthur Philip

This man is perhaps overlooked by some, but as he is buried in a small Bath church it was a name we looked up when we got back to the UK:

In effect he was one of the founders of Sydney and ultimately Australia, after ruling as the first Governor and surviving hard times of starvation and attacks from Aboriginals whilst controlling the convicts and marines - neither of whom were likely to have wanted to be there - who were members of the First Fleet arriving in Sydney Cove in 1788.
