A COUNTRY TO BE RECKONED WITH
by Patsy Trench
In the 19th century Australia went from a penal colony struggling to survive to a thriving, prosperous community with a glowing future. George Matcham Pitt’s life spanned the best part of that century. A larger than life character, he began as a working farmer on the Hawkesbury and went on to become an auctioneer, landowner and founder of one of Australia’s first and best-known stock and station agents, Pitt, Son & Badgery. Friend to everyone bar politicians, GM had close family contacts with Aboriginal people and even closer connections with convicts. Now his great great granddaughter, a Pom based in London, sets out to tell the story of this remarkable man and the extraordinary country he lived in.
