John Macarthur John Macarthur is regarded as being a man of influence in bringing the wool industry to Australia. In 1796, John Macarthur bought his first merino sheep from a flock of Spanish merino sheep reared in South Africa. In subsequent years they bought merinos from flocks in various locations which meant that the bloodline of the flock – and therefore the health of their sheep and the quality of their wool – was strengthened and improved over time. In 1807, the Macarthurs sent their first bale of wool to England.
Sir Joseph Banks Sir Joseph Banks was born on the 13th of February 1743 at Westminster, England. After the settlement was established at Sydney Cove, he encouraged further investigation of the natural history of the area and became the acknowledged authority on matters relating to New South Wales. His impact on the study of natural history in both Britain and Australia cannot be overestimated. Banks organised Matthew Flinders’ voyage on the Investigator (1801-1803) which helped define the map of Australia. Because of his keen interest in the colony Banks has been called ‘the Father of Australia’.
