This event is the one held over from 23rd April. It will be held online via Zoom. Speaker: Liz Rushen
When the Port Phillip District was opened up to bounty emigration in 1839, a flood of emigrants poured into the new colony, most encouraged by John Marshall. He had immigrants on three of the first five bounty ships and when the trade was at its peak, he sent a ship to Australia every month. In this talk, Liz Rushen will discuss the work and influence of John Marshall.
