Administrative / Biographical history

Major Thomas Wingate (1807-1869), a retired English army officer and reservist with the NSW volunteers, was also an amateur artist and photographer. He arrived in Sydney ca. 1850, having served as lieutenant with the 2nd Queen's Regiment of Foot in India, where he prepared a series of lithographs of the campaign. In 1854 he was commissioned as a Major commanding the 1st New South Wales Rifle Volunteers, the first local unit raised by an Act of the Legislative Council. In 1858 he married Eleanor Terry, née Rouse, seventh child of Richard Rouse, builder of Rouse Hill House at Parramatta. Eleanor married twice, in 1831 to John Terry of Box Hill, and in 1858 to Wingate. Wingate lived at Percy Lodge, 22 Wylde Street, Potts Point from at least 1858 until his death in 1869. He also photographed the house and garden at Rouse Hill, ca. 1859-65. References:
