THE YAAN.

I went out and driving about today. I had a special place I wanted to see. We crossed a good few suburbs and with anticipation, arrived at Vaucluse House.

Its builder, William Charles Wentworth (1790-1872) is known today as one of our early colonial statesmen. His sense of his place in society was undermined by illegitimacy and convict associations. With the rising tide of Victorian morality his wife Sarah was shunned as lacking respectability and the family had to socialise outside of colonial society.
