Transcript of Caroline Chisholm
What She Did?
Caroline Chisholm is commemorated on the 16th May.
In 1838, rather than returning to England the family decided the climate in Australia would be better for the health. They set sail for Sydney arriving there in October 1838. Caroline set up a home in Sydney while Captain Archibald went back to his regiment in 1840.
Caroline also set up a home for young women, and organized other homes in several rural centers. The home was made to help families and friends. Caroline’s home the “Female Immigrant Home” helped over 40,000 people. Money was raised for the homes through subscription. After that Captain Archibald came back in Australia in 1845.
Caroline and Archibald returned in England in 1846. Caroline believed that the only way to encourage emigration was for prospective emigrants to read letters from those already living in the colony. In 1849, Caroline founded the family colonization loan society from her home in Carlton.
