An Unconventional Wife -  the life of Julia Sorell Arnold
A biography of Julia Arnold (nee Sorell), the granddaughter of William Sorell, Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen’s Land.

William Sorell was appointed Lieutenant-Governor in 1817, and although he was much respected, he was removed from his position when it was discovered that the woman he was living with and calling Mrs Sorell was not his wife, but his mistress. William Sorell the younger came out to Hobart from Britain to beg his father for money for him and his mother, Sorell’s real wife. When he arrived, he fell in love with Elizabeth Kemp, the daughter of his father’s nemesis. They were married and had five children: Julia, Augusta, Ada, Hugh Percy, and William.
