This group contains portraits of the wife and children of John Blaxland (Aust., 1799–1884), whose father Gregory Blaxland (Brit., 1778–1853) is known for co-leading the first successful crossing of the Blue Mountains in 1813. Portraits included in the group are of “Grannie” Ellen Blaxland (née Falkner, wife of John), and some of their children: Frederick Blaxland and his wife Elizabeth, Francis Blaxland and his wife Mary, and Lucy Blaxland (married name Levick), with her husband Sydney and their daughter Violet, whose possible annotations identifying family members are on these cards. Other portraits show Ellen Falkner’s father Francis, and Marcus and Frances “Fanny” Blaxland, nephew and niece of John Blaxland. Ref: Howard Blaxland Genealogy Pages.

Included with this group is a copy of Frank Walker’s book A Journal of a Tour of Discovery Across the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, in the Year 1813 by Gregory Blaxland, (1913).
