The Campbells of Anlaby, 1860-1940
Not far to the west of Eudunda, Anlaby Station is one of South Australia’s oldest sheep stations. Formerly owned by the wealthy Dutton family, the station was renowned for its wool production and extensive gardens full of exotic plants and trees.
Scottish immigrants Hugh and Margaret Campbell arrived there in 1860 and three generations of Campbells lived and worked on the property until 1940. Hugh’s son Charles Campbell became overseer. Some family members moved to Broken Hill and the Northern Territory.
This book is a vigorous account of the Campbell family, the communities where they lived and the economic and social changes they experienced. Anlaby’s own story, previously seen only from the standpoint of the Duttons, is given new life. It is a skilful blend of family and social history.
Janet and Suzanne Scarfe are the great-granddaughters of Hugh and Margaret Campbell. Janet is a professional historian and Suzanne is a genealogist.
