Emma Rouse (1843-1928) / photographer unknown
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.
Emma Rouse (1843-1928), was the second 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 1871 Emma married Lieutenant Dudley Batty, an English army officer, in London. They had met on board the sailing ship Sobraon in 1869, when Emma and her mother, brother Edwin and sister Lizzie were returning from a European trip and Dudley Batty was making a sea voyage for the sake of his health. Dudley Batty died in 1878 and Emma never returned to Australia. [ref. Caroline Rouse Thornton Rouse Hill house and the Rouses 1988].
