Henry Camfield

























about



Standing on the land he called 'Burrswood', the English settler who almost starved to death in his attempt to turn this alien land into an English garden, leans on his shovel in helpless despair. His weary demeanour captures the sense of hopelessness that enveloped the early 19th Century migrants, who clung to the sandy edges of the new continent. 

This magnificent bronze sculpture was designed in 1996 by Charlie and Joan Smith and stands two metres tall.





Pioneer, Henry Camfield, settled in the area in 1829 naming it"Burrswood" after his family home in Kent. Henry experienced deprivation and constant crop failures leading to near starvation in the harsh Western Australian environment. The sculpture is based on an excerpt from a letter home, in which he said "We are told we should get our subsistance from the sweat of our brow, but I never read we should sweat, strive to get on honestly and starve..."
