In about 1869 Sarah Davenport sat down to record her experiences of immigration and life in New South Wales and Victoria in the 1840s and fifties. Her laboriously handwritten account was entitled ‘Scech of an emegrants Life in australia from Leiving England in the year of our Lord 1841’. It is held in the collection of the State Library of Victoria.
