Caroline Chisholm




Born:  Caroline Jones in England in 1808

Caroline Jones was brought up with a caring family whose front door was always open to others no matter how rich or poor. this may have contributed to her love of caring for others rights. Caroline married Archibald Chisholm at the age of 22 in the year of 1832. Archibald was a British Army Officer. Caroline and Archibald Chisholm decided to move immigrate to Australia to start up a family. When they arrived in Sydney, Caroline was repulsed with all of the used and abused women living and begging on the streets.
In 1835 Caroline persuaded Governor Gipps to allow her to use the old, disused immigration barrcks as a women's home. Caroline Chisholm was the first person in Australia to set up a counsiling service for young girls and women who came to Sydney.

In 1846 Caroline and Archibald returned home to show their children England. By 1854 their hearts were aching for the beauty and space of Australia and they returned to Sydney.
In 1847 Caroline went to the Gold Fields to help all of the poor.

In 1876 Caroline moved back to England without her first son or her husband and she later died in March of 1877.


Caroline died in March of 1877
