“Women convicts transported to New South Wales”
Carol Liston AO is an Adjunct Associate Professor at Western Sydney University. Her research covers early colonial history in New South Wales, with interests in people (convict, colonial born and free immigrant), local history, heritage and the built environment. Her particular interest is the colonial development of the County of Cumberland. Her publications include histories of Campbelltown, Parramatta and Liverpool, biographies of Sarah Wentworth, and Thomas Brisbane and accounts of social life under Governor Macquarie and the convict women at the Female Factory, Parramatta. Her current research, with Dr Kathrine Reynolds, looks at women transported to New South Wales from Britain.
