He Made His Mark Joshua Jeays by Beryl Roberts

On 26 February 1853, Her Majesty's barque Agricola dropped anchor in Moreton Bay, 109 days out from England. Among those who disembarked were Joshua Jeays, a 40 year old master builder, his wife Sarah and their four children. Beryl Roberts has written a well-researched biography of the man.

Joshua Jeays was an advocate for the separation of Queensland from New South Wales, he built many of the public buildings in Brisbane, including old Government House. Both civic leader and businessman, he became the fourth Mayor of Brisbane.
