The City of Canada Bay Heritage Society will host author Lyn M. Fergusson to discuss her new biography of Governor Charles Fitzroy, titled Fitzroy: Beyond the Rumours. Fitzroy was Australia’s tenth Governor and first Governor-General, with an administration that worked with notable political figures such as Wentworth, Parkes and Lang. Yet Fitzroy seems to have slipped through the cracks of history, either not remembered at all, or remembered as a womaniser responsible for the death of his wife.

Are these damning comments justified? Lyn M. Fergusson considers these and other opinions as she delves into the life of Fitzroy. The talk will be followed by light refreshments and an opportunity for questions.

When: Saturday 4 February 2017, 1:30pm for 2:00pm start.
Where: City of Canada Bay Museum, 1 Bent St, Concord
Cost: Free – Donations welcome.
