Summary

In January 1843 New South Wales was little more than a penal settlement ruled by Governor's decree. The election held later that year - the first election in Australia - produced a parliament with limited powers. Thirteen years later, New South Wales was a colony with a Parliament, a Premier and a liberal constitution.
