Description:
Percy Lodge, in Wylde Street, Potts Point, was the home of Eleanor Wingate (1813-1898) and her husband Major Thomas Wingate (1807-1869), a retired English army officer. Eleanor, the seventh child of Richard Rouse (1774-1852), builder of Rouse Hill House in the Parramatta district of New South Wales, and his wife Elizabeth Adams (1772-1849) already owned the house at the time of her marriage to Wingate in 1856. She had previously been married to John Terry (ca.1806-1842) of Box Hill, son of Samuel Terry, a merchant landowner known in his day as the 'Botany Bay Rothschild' and Percy Lodge served as a city rendezvous for Eleanor's children and the extended Terry and Rouse families.
Some of the people in the photograph are identified: Hannah Rouse seated far left and Eleanor Wingate third from left. Three of the young women in the photograph may be probably Emma, Phoebe and Lizzie, the daughters of Hannah Rouse, while the young man sitting behind the window is Hannah's son Richard Rouse and in the front is her youngest child Edwin Stephen Rouse.
