Henry Hussey (1825-1903), evangelist, millenarian, printer and historian, emigrated from England to Australia with his parents and siblings in 1839.
'More Than Half a Century of Colonial Life and Christian Experience' is a large volume of over 500 pages which was first published in 1897. This is Henry's story of his life in both England and South Australia. Starting with his life in England, then the emigration and arrival in South Australia. By 1850 he had a business and in the gold rushes printed the 'South Australian Register' and the 'Adelaide Observer'. From printing Hussey progressed to publishing Evangelical and millenarian journals, and to bookselling at his Bible Hall and Tract Depot in Adelaide. His time as secretary to George Fife Angus is also included.
This is a valuable resource for not only those interested in South Australia's early social and Christian history, but also for those with an interest or connections to Henry Hussey and his family.
