Biographies

George Barrow was transported to Western Australian for the crime of forgery, but quickly established himself as a lithographer and music-seller in Fremantle. He left Australia for the Seychelles in 1870, seven years after his arrival.

lithographer, music-seller and accountant, was born in England. Transported for forgery, he arrived at the Swan River Colony (Western Australia) on 15 February 1863 accompanied by his wife. Between 1864 and 1870 Barrow worked as an accountant for the firm of Lionel Samson & Son. He advertised independently as a lithographer and music-seller throughout this period and in 1868 launched Fremantle’s second newspaper, the Era , 'at the low price of one penny’. The intensive method of production – first written by hand in flowing copperplate script and then printed by the lithographic process – presumably hastened its closure after a year. Barrow left Western Australia for Mauritius on 16 September 1870, having been appointed to a position in the Seychelles. His only certain art work is a lithograph, Congregational Chapel and Pastor’s Residence, Fremantle, W.A. (private collection, photograph British Library), although an 1860s lithograph by W. Miller, Fremantle from the North , is stated to be after a drawing by 'Borrow’ (Mitchell Library) – possibly a misprint. This entry is a stub. You can help the DAAO by submitting a
