In 1832 to escape the recession in England, Samuel Kingsford, miller, embarked with his wife and daughter Georgiana for the largely unknown continent of New Holland, to become one of the pioneering settlers in the newly established Swan River colony. Surviving great hardships Samuel established the first water mill in the new settlement at Perth. After her father's premature death Georgiana Mary married George Leake, one of the colony's most influential settlers and a man much older than herself. In the short time they had together, Georgiana painted the profusion of wildflowers which she found in the area.
This book tells the story of Georgiana's early life, her time in the Swan River and return to England. It also reproduces the entire collection of surviving illustrations, with notes on their provenance.
