Biographies

English born sketcher (attributed) who practiced in Perth during the late 1830s and again from the early 1860s, although it is probable that his uncle was the 1830s sketcher.

sketcher (?) and farmer, was born in England, fourth {fifth?} and youngest surviving son of Rev. John Burdett Wittenoom and his first wife Mary, nee Teasdale. He accompanied his father and brothers to the Swan River settlement (WA) on board the Wanstead , arriving at Fremantle on 30 January 1830.

Annie Fletcher Moore became his second wife at Perth on 25 February 1865; they had one daughter. After his brother’s death Charles inherited the family property, Gwambygine, at Beverley. He was honorary secretary of the York Agricultural Society in 1857 and on the York Board of Education in 1861. He died at Perth on 10 July 1866, aged forty-two.
