The Campbells of Anlaby



Anlaby is one of South Australia’s oldest sheep stations. It was once renowned for its wool, exotic gardens and the lavish lifestyle of the Dutton family, its owners for one hundred and forty years. Scottish immigrants Hugh and Margaret Campbell arrived there in 1860 and three generations of Campbells lived and worked on the property until 1940. Hugh’s son Charles Campbell became overseer. Some family members moved to Broken Hill and the Northern Territory. This book is a lively account of the Campbell family, the communities where they lived and the economic and social changes they experienced. Anlaby’s own story, previously seen only from the standpoint of the Duttons, is given new life. It is a skilful blend of family and social history.

Janet and Suzanne Scarfe are the great granddaughters of Hugh and Margaret Campbell. Janet is a professional historian and Suzanne is a genealogist.
