Author was employed by G.F. Angas as his agent and attorney in South Australia to replace Charles Flaxman. His main task on arrival was to take possession of the Barossa estate (for Angas) and he helped layout the town of Angaston. He returned home in 1844 but came back to South Australia in 1846 to take up sheep farming. In 1952 he and E.W.
