Emma Rouse (1843-1928), around 1866 / Dalton's Royal Photographic Gallery, Sydney
1 carte-de-visite : b & w ; 10 x 6.1 cm.
Verso of card printed with studio name: Dalton's / Royal Photographic Gallery / Sydney.
This carte-de-visite is one item within a small album containing photographs of members of the extended Rouse and Terry families.Emma Rouse (1843-1928), was the second child of Edwin Rouse (1806-1862) and his wife Hannah Terry 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 at the time this photograph was taken she was living with her siblings and widowed mother at Rouse Hill. This carte-de-visite portrait seems to be one of a suite of four studio portraits of Edwin and Hannah's children taken at a single session. 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].
