Annan Grove Cottage, on the Parramatta Road, Petersham

Earliest map showing Annangrove as a "New Brick Cottage" is Peter Reynolds Collection : Manuscript Map of South Annandale.

The 1843 map of the Johnston Estate shows a "brick cottage" on "high road" (Parramatta Road), another "cottage" and a "cottage and offices".

A rectangle appears at the location on the Parramatta Road on a circa 1890 map. The L shape footprint of the Annangrove Cottage is clearly shown on another ca 1890 map which matches Stanley Jevons' 1850s photograph.

In 2014, Rhett Lindsay pointed that Annangrove cottage may still be standing behind the facade of the buildings at the corner of Macquarie Street and [245] Parramatta Road and the distinctive chimneys and A Frame roof can be identified in the Satellite image of the site.

William Stanley Jevons (1855)

Annangrove Cottage, Sydney 29 October 1855

"Annangrove Cottage on the Parramatta Road, Petersham from the back garden" is amongst the photographs on page WM Jevon's Album, in the Rylands Collection, University of Manchester.

Before leaving Sydney, Jevons produced a social map. Back in England, jevons went on to design a "logical piano" (a mechanical computer) and to write

William Stanley Jevons was appointed as an assayer to the new Sydney Mint. In 1854 he left Britain for Sydney. scan.net.au with photos (viewed 23 February 2012)

William Stanley Jevons came to live at Annangrove, with his fellow Assayer (Mr Miller) and Mrs Miller, from April 1855 until 9th March 1857, when they all moved to a cottage in Double Bay.

While at Annangrove on the Parramatta Road, Petersham, Jevons kept a diary and wrote letters to his sisters, brother and father in England. Jevons also photographed " photogra Anangrove Cottage, Petersham on the Parramatta Road from the back garden".

In his letters, Jevons described the house, his room as well as his walks from the Cottage, to work at the Mint via dusty Parramatta Road and through the woods at the back of the house. Jevons also described a walk across Parramatta Road, where he came upon the new Railway. Jevons also accompanied Robert Hunt, the first Clerk to the Mint, on photographic trips around the harbour. They photographed Willougby Falls and Hunt later returned and took a stereoscopic photograph. They also photographed the reck of the Dunbar and the Lane Cove River. More on Hunt at sydney.edu.au and sydneylivingmuseums.com.au

"Mr. Jevons now went to live at Petersham with his co-assayer, Mr. Miller. From here, In order to reach the mint, he walked along the Parramatta-road, whtch he described as "dusty or muddy, straight, and going through the hills by cuttings. It is crowded in the day time with herds of cattle and sheep, bullock teams, drays going up the country, mail coaches, omnibuses, diggers on horse-back, etc."
'A DELIGHTFUL BY-PATH.
A little later, however, he writes: "I found a delightful way to the town through woods and dales instead of along a dusty road. I start off in the wood at our backdoor and walk through close, tall, gum trees and over picturesque rocks for a full mile, when I came to a stream, an Inlet of the harbour; this is crossed by a bridge formed of a large gum tree which has been blown down and fallen across it, a long row of bullocks' skulls being laid in the mud as stepping stones on one side; then another mile through bush land and trees brings me within a few hundred yards of the omnibus stand at the end of the town." - 1929 'SYDNEY IN 1858.', The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954), 6 November, p. 16. , viewed 03 Mar 2017, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article16599230

In November 1855, Jevons wrote from Petersham:"The Mint goes on swimmingly now, 20,000oz being an ordinary week's recèipt. Nevertheless I cannot say we are overworked, for we get to do the assays very quickly, and often do not work longer than from 10 to 8. Still, when you add in everything that I have to do, it does not turn out to be a very easy life.
On the whole, however, I may say that we are getting on at Petersham better than ever we did before/and there is nothing like an active life to be pleasant." - (LETTERS AND JOURNALS of W. STANLEY JEVONS. Edited by his wife. Macmillan and Co.,London.) - 1886 'THE ROYAL SOCIETY.—ANNUAL ADDRESS.', Australian Town and Country Journal (NSW : 1870 - 1907), 24 July, p. 28, viewed 31 January, 2012, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article71065646

50s Annandale: A Short Walk

Marghanita da Cruz will present a virtual tour of 1850s and 1950s Annandale. In the 1850s, a new Train line passed through the Annandale Estate and William Stanley Jevons came to live at Annangrove Cottage on the Parramatta Road.

Jevons left us descriptions of Annangrove and his walks home to the new Royal Mint where he worked as an Assayer.

Horse Drawn, Steam and electric Trams have all transported passengers along Parramatta Road until the 1950s.

This virtual tour will form the basis of Marghanita's seventh book in a series which presents Annandale's History as Short Walks.

There will be an opportunity to inspect the historic cottage and nearby sites.

In one letter Jevons described the wreck of the Dunbar. He returned to London via America. - 1886 'THE TANTALUS ROUND TABLE.', The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933), 23 November, p. 2, viewed 31 January, 2012, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article4486566

While in Sydney, Jevons photographed the harbour, plants and his associates Mrs T.; an unidentified aborigine man and lady on a horse; W. & S.T (Willy and Sarah Tricket, son and niece of Joseph Trickett of the Sydney Royal Mint); J.N. and family (Joseph Newton); Mrs M. (Alicia Miller);S.P. - WM Jevons Album, Rylands Collection, University of Manchester.

Two assayers were appointed to the mint, each with their own office and the right to undertake assays for banks or for private persons. Jevons and his colleague rented a two room cottage at Church Hill, where Jevons set up his scientific apparatus. At the end of April 1855, he moved in with Mr and Mrs Miller first at Annangrove Cottage, Petersham and then with them into their new home in Double Bay.

From Annangrove Cottage, he wrote regularly to his father, brother and sisters. In May 1855, he wrote to his sister Lucy, that it was four miles to his office. Despite walking an average of six of the eight miles, he was still often ready to cut firewood in the evenings.

On the 1st July 1855, Jevons wrote to his sister Henrietta from Annangrove Cottage: "I will now tell you a little about the house I am living in here. It is a low neatly-built Australian-shaped house; the little dining-room is comfortable, and looks on to the road; the drawing-room is a fine room of three windows, comfortably and handsomely furnished, and which would be admired as a good room anywhere. My little room is awkwardly shaped and placed, but being now furnished according to my own ideas of comfort, convenience, and elegance, I am thoroughly satisfied with it At one end is the harmonium, always open and ready for an occasional tune; the bookcase is a really handsome one, with glass doors, standing on a chiffonier containing a large drawer and fine cupboard to hold large books, and other things."

"It is easier to plan than to perform things, but, of course, when the work of the mint becomes easy and regular I shall begin to think of long walks, collecting Australian plants, etc. Returning to home matters, however pleasant life here may become, one does not look upon it for one moment but as temporary. Everybody talks of home, even, it is said, those who have been born here; but whatever other people do, home, you may depend upon it, I shall come in due time. These thoughts occur to me now more especially because last Wednesday or Thursday was the first anniversary of the day on which I left home. If other years pass as quickly as this seems to have done, and they [52] will no doubt pass quicker, the time will not seem so far distant."

"By the by, very fortunately, the day before yesterday I found a delightful way to the town through woods and dales instead of along a dusty road. I start off in the wood at our back door, and walk through close tall gum-trees and over picturesque rocks for a full mile, when I come to a stream, an inlet of the harbour; this is crossed by a bridge formed of a large gum-tree which has been blown down and fallen across it, a long row of bullocks' skulls being laid in the mud as stepping-stones on one side: the view here along the stream is also quite pretty, at least to Australian eyes. Then another mile through bush land and trees brings me within a few hundred yards of the omnibus stand at the end of the town."- LETTERS AND JOURNAL OF W. STANLEY JEVONS. - William Stanley Jevons, Letters and Journal [1886] (viewed 3 Sep 2016)

In 1858 Jevons described Camperdown and the clay deposits of the area. He also described the social status of the housing and residents of the sydney surburbs in his Social Map of Sydney.

Jevons left us descriptions of Annangrove and his walks home to the new Royal Mint where he worked as an Assayer.

Horse Drawn, Steam and electric Trams have all transported passengers along Parramatta Road until the 1950s.
