Camden — Farm and Village Life in Early NSWBy Alan Atkinson
Camden's place in Australia's history is a singular one. For most Australians it is bound up with the Macarthurs, owners of Camden Park and the pre-eminent family in early colonial New South Wales. The Macarthurs are central to Alan Atkinson's Camden, but even more important are the people they and their neighbour, George Macleay, settled on the lands as tenant farmers, and the labourers and tradespeople who came to live at Camden after the village was laid out in 1841.
