  • Title: Kingston House History
    Descriptive info: George Kingston.. Charles Kingston.. Kingston House is the oldest building in the Holdfast Bay Council area, and is situated on a three acre reserve above the Kingston Park Caravan Park, commanding a magnificent view of the coast.. It was the country home of the Kingston Family - a family who were extremely influetial in the founding of the South Australian colony and of the nation.. George Strickland Kingston came to South Australia aboard the 'Cygnet' in 1836 as Deputy Surveyor to Colonel Light.. He purchased the property on which the House stands in April 1839.. In 1840 he granted Robert Bristow permission to build an Inn on it, which was to cater for the workers from the nearby quarry and sailors from ships using the pier at the proposed harbour in Marino Bay (which never enventuated).. Bristow built the original 3 rooms from prefabricated timber panels shipped out from England and built a verandah all around it.. However this venture only lasted a few years when the building and land was leased to Samuel Oakley, a farmer, until about 1850.. In 1851, George returned to the house to make it his permanent residence.. He set about improving the existing structure and added the two storey eastern wing resulting in the attractive and substantial building seen today.. The house remained in the Kingston family for another seventy years - until the death of  ...   the British East India Army.. On returning to bleak job prospects in Bandon he decide to follow a carreer as an engineer.. Kingston trained in Birmingham and traveled to London where he volunteered to work for the association planning the new colony in Australia.. Kingston arrived in South Australia on the Cygnet in 1836 as Deputy Surveyor to Colonel William Light.. Charles Kingston.. Charles Cameron Kingston was the youngest child of George Kingston, born in Adelaide in 1850.. Charles studied law, and eventually followed his father into politics.. He held the seat of West Adelaide until 1900, became Attorney-General in 1884, Chief Secretary in 1892, and in 1893 he became Premier and held office until 1901.. He was a great social reformer and is noted for introducing the following legislations:.. the first factory regulations.. set wages for set hours.. industrial conciliation.. establishment of the State Bank guaranteeing deposits.. Married Women's Property Act.. female suffrage (second in the word), and.. women's right to stand for Parliament (first in the world).. Charles was also an influential figure in the future of the entire of Australia; of all the Premiers of the time, he was the most persistent advocate of a Federated Australia.. In 1901, he was elected to the first Federal Parliament and served as Minister of Trade and customs.. He also assisted in the drafting of the Australian constitution.. Charles Kingston died in 1908..
