              Was Governor FitzRoy the man popular history would have us believe? Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy's tenure as Governor of New South Wales and Governor-General of Australia between 1846 and 1855 was plagued by rumour. Mention FitzRoy and he is either not remembered at all, remember...ed as the Governor who caused his wife's death or as a shameless womaniser. Are these damning comments justified? It was the time of Wentworth, Parkes and Lang, giant political figures in New South Wales' early history. FitzRoy's administration oversaw matters such as settlement of the contentious crown land issue and squatters' rights, discovery of gold, education and introduction of the railway. A man of the British Empire, he served firstly his King, then a young Queen Victoria as the Crown's Vice Regal representative at Prince Edward island, the Leeward Islands and finally, New South Wales. This commissioned biography portrays FitzRoy in a light not previously considered, from a personal, family oriented aspect, stretching from childhood to the battlefields of Waterloo. Going beyond the rumours set in motion in 1847, it reveals a worldly diplomat, a Governor who encouraged those around him to act on their beliefs.

              We all know Arthur Phillip commanded the First Fleet but what do we actually know about him? In this biography the author delves into his personal life in more detail than is seen in earlier publications. Historians have always supposed Phillip was of German extraction, here the ...possibility he was of French Huguenot descent is introduced. Phillip's service with the Portuguese Navy and subsequent visits to South America are clarified through the Rebello Transcripts; time spent in France as a spy for the Home Office is discussed as is the mystery surrounding his death. No personal papers of Phillip's were thought to exist until a discovery in 1998 of three letters to his wife, providing an insight into his second marriage. This biography concentrates on the man, clearly illustrating the character of New South Wales' first governor. It puts to rest any notion Arthur Phillip's capabilities were unknown to the British Government when commissioned to lead an expedition of such magnitude to the far side of the world
