Port Jackson Gentlemen (Rosenberg Publishing, 2015)

This book is a narrative of the first free settlers - the Exclusives, or Port Jackson Gentlemen. Whether originally army officers and officials who stayed on, or settlers from the start, all were dependent upon convict labour, upon land grants, upon cunning and upon luck. Although sometimes unruly, they were adventurers and true pioneers.
