1 photograph : 1/9th plate daguerrotype in pinchbeck frame inside a velvet lined dark maroon leather case; case 7.5 x 6.2 x 1.8 cm.
Mary Phoebe Rouse (1847-1931), known as Phoebe, was the fourth child of Edwin Rouse (1806-1862) and his wife Hannah Hipkins (1819-1907) and was a granddaughter of Richard and Elizabeth Rouse of Rouse Hill in the Parramatta district of New South Wales. She was born at the Rouse family property Guntawang near Mudgee but by the time this photograph was taken, probably in late 1855, Edwin and Hannah Rouse and their children had come to live at Rouse Hill, Edwin having taken responsibility for the property following his father's death. In September 1866 Phoebe married Albert Augustus Dangar at St Matthew's Church, Windsor. He was the fourth son of the surveyor and pastoralist Henry Dangar and was himself a prosperous pastoralist.
