Hambledon Cottage was constructed for John & Elizabeth Macarthur in 1824 as a second house on their Elizabeth Farm estate.

It is a colonial Georgian cottage ornee and largely conforms to its original design and construction.

Hambledon Cottage is listed on the NSW State Heritage Register.

The house museum was opened on 26 February 1966 by Major General Sir Denzel Macarthur-Onslow and has remained in operation ever since.

  • 1913

Parramatta & District Historical Society was formed in 1913 and celebrates its centenary in 2013.

It researches, records, publishes and publicises aspects of Parramatta's history and heritage, as well as operating an 1824 house museum to display mid 19th century domestic life in Australia.

Its vision is to be the local authority on the history (local and family) and heritage of Parramatta, and to operate Hambledon Cottage as an historic house museum, authentically displaying and furnishing it as an 1820s-1880s colonial Georgian cottage.

I love helping people and have made a wonderful business out of this. So if you have always wanted to write your story or have someone do it for you, please contact me. I could be the ghostwriter and you have your name on the cover. Perhaps you have a home or property, business or organisation you would like to have a book or leaflet written about, we can do that too. No project too small or large. After 20 years of disability advocacy I have gained a lot of knowledge so if you would like help in this area, please contact me.

Projects

Currently writing "Kitchener's 100" about a group of Australian doctors who served in the British Army 1915-1916 and beyond, their individual stories. Many more interesting projects including film scripts.

Interests

WW1, writing, research, genealogy, family and local history, natural health, disability advocacy and making change. One candle can light a thousand candles!
