Melbourne, who consulted the Norfolk Island returns at the colonial office. There is some doubt about the name of his mother, but there is reason to believe that originally it was Catherine Williams Melbourne.
In he was charged with highway robbery and acquitted, but in December he was again charged with the same offence. He was not convicted, but agreed to go to New South Wales, having obtained the position of assistant-surgeon on the Neptune.
He arrived at Sydney on 28 June He was immediately appointed an assistant in the hospital at Norfolk Island, became a superintendent of convicts inand acted at the same time as assistant-surgeon.
He returned to Sydney ineventually became principal surgeon and superintendent of police, and a magistrate. From the time he arrived in the colony until his death in his life was free from blame.
He laid the foundation of a large fortune as one of the contractors for the building of the "Rum Hospital", known by that name because the builders of it had agreed to erect the building on condition that they were allowed a monopoly of the sale of spirits for three years.
Little is known of the youth of William Charles Wentworth. He arrived in Sydney again inand in August was granted acres of land. In the following year, with Gregory Blaxland q. Many attempts had been made before, but all had failed. Only 17 miles were covered in the first week, but at the end of the third week they saw from Mount York the open country beyond.
Wentworth, however, found that the privations he had endured had injured his health, and in took a voyage to the Friendly Islands to enable him to recover. In he went to England. His father hoped that he would enter the army, but Wentworth was anxious to study law.
In a letter to Lord Fitzwilliam he spoke of acquainting himself "with all the excellence of the British constitution, and hope at some future period to advocate successfully the right of my country to participate in its advantages".
It is clear from this letter that Wentworth intended to make the bar a stepping stone to the fulfilment of greater ambitions. At this time he was friendly with John Macarthur q. The elder man, however, advised Wentworth to complete his law studies before returning to Sydney, and a subsequent quarrel with the Macarthurs made an end of the proposed marriage.
In Wentworth went to Paris, lived there for more than a year, and obtained a good working knowledge of French while not entirely neglecting his study of the law.
In Paris he was in close touch with John Macarthur junior, who suggested that he should write a book on the state of New South Wales, which he practically completed by May About this time he suffered a great shock.
He found in a public letter addressed to Lord Sidmouth by the Hon. Bennet a statement that his father had gone to New South Wales as a convict. He interviewed Bennet and denied the charges, but from further inquiries he learned that his father had twice been tried for a capital offence.
His distress was great but he did what he could. Bennet amended the wording of his pamphlet, and made "a somewhat ambiguous apology in the house of commons", and Wentworth wisely carried the matter no further.
His book was published in ; its long and cumbrous title will suggest the scope of it--A Statistical, Historical and Political Description of the Colony of New South Wales and its dependent Settlements with a Particular Enumeration of the Advantages which these Colonies offer for Emigration and their Superiority in many Respects over those Possessed by the United States of America.
The book contained a remarkable amount of information relating to the colony, with many proposals for the improvement of its government. It went into a second edition inand the third edition, considerably revised and augmented, appeared in ABOUT.
