Chronicles of Early Melbourne 1835-1852
AboutThis is how Melbourne would have looked when Edmund Finn arrived in 1841, from Ireland, as a young man - and when he was writing his unique and entertaining anecdotes, which he published under the pseudonym ‘Garryowen’ in 1888: Chronicles of Early Melbourne 1835-1852.
His great-great-grandson, Professor Jon Patrick, will take us through Finn’s family life and some notable descendants, accompanied by some of the intriguing stories and anecdotes of life in pre-separation Victoria recorded through the amusing eyes of his early antecedent in two volumes of the 1,000-page book.
