    Public

    This is a list of articles about Peter Paul Labertouche (c. 1827- 1907) who was the Secretary to the Commissioner of Roads and Bridges from 1858 and later Secretary for Railways. It's more about his family and their 'glittering' social life than his work. He retired in 1892 and moved to London where he lived a comfortable life on a pension of 670 pounds per annum, which was around five times the average annual wage at the time. His son served in the Indian Army and one daughter married a son of Lord Augustus Loftus, the New South Wales Governor so the family was well and truly ensconced in colonial ‘society’. His brother George Labertouche had a much different end as he was charged in 1891 with embezzling 10,000 pounds from the Imperial Pensions Department in Sydney. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years in jail.
