The wife of a governor of one of the Australian colonies was expected to embody the ideal of the 'English lady', and be the centre of colonial society. Governors' Wives in Colonial Australia explores how five viceregal women-Eliza Darling, Jane Franklin, Mary Anne Broome, Elizabeth Loch, and Audrey Tennyson- fulfilled their role. Drawing on letters, diaries and journals, Governors' Wives in Colonial Australia provides a first-hand account of the role of viceregal women in colonial life.
