At Billiards (sic) house, about Xmas 1879, Parramatta

William Whaley Billyard (1815-1903), sometime Crown Solicitor of NSW, and his wife Elizabeth (1824-1905) had a large family, including several daughters. The woman in the cane chair in this picture may be Elizabeth Billyard and the young woman in the hammock could be either of her younger daughters, Beatrice born in 1857 or Blanche born in 1863. The hammock is slung on the southern end of the eastern verandah of Elizabeth Farm house.
