Immediate Source of Acquisition

The bulk of the collection was received from the co-executor of the Estate of Sir Edmund Barton, Sir David M. Maughan, who was also the husband of Barton's daughter, Jean Alice. The main Maughan consignment was transferred to the Commonwealth Library in June 1929, with subsequent transfers in April 1939, May 1940 and November 1955. Personal papers from the Barton Papers were separated from the pre-1955 consignments and sent to the Mitchell Library in Sydney. After Maughan's death, a consignment of papers held by the family was transferred by Maughan's son, David Wilfrid Barton Maughan, in 1957. A further consignment was received from the family in 1996 (items 1703-1853), and a final consignment was received from Dr David Barton (son of Oswald Barton) in 2003 (items 1854-1927). Small additions to the collection were also incorporated from other sources between 1933 and 1984.

Existence and Location of Copies

The Barton Papers have been microfilmed at Mfm G 27550-27555. Note that additions from 1996 onwards were not filmed.

One volume contains family papers, 1832-67.

Arrangement

Sir Edmund Barton (1849-1920) was the first Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia, having previously been a leading advocate of Federation and one of the draftsmen of the Australian Constitution. He served as Prime Minister from 1 January 1901 until 23 September 1903, and then resigned to become the senior puisne judge of the newly-established High Court of Australia.

Edmund Barton was the fourth and youngest son of William Barton (1795-1881) and Mary Louisa, née Whydah, who had emigrated from England to New South Wales in 1827. An elder brother was the barrister, journalist and author George B. Barton (1836-1901). On 28 December 1877 Edmund Barton married Jane (Jean) Mason Ross (1851-1938). Their children were Edmund Alfred (b. 1879), Wilfrid Alexander (b. 1880), Jean Alice (b. 1882), Arnold Hubert (b. 1884), Oswald (b. 1888) and Leila Stephanie (b. 1892).

Item Descriptions

Series 1. Correspondence, 1827-1921

The bulk of the correspondence covers the period 1898-1905 and concerns Barton's leadership of the Federation campaign, the work of the Australian delegates in London and Barton's term of office as Prime Minister. Principal correspondents are Alfred Deakin, Sir John Forrest, Lord Hopetoun, Joseph Chamberlain, Sir Samuel Griffith, Sir William Lyne, Sir Henry Parkes and Lord Tennyson. One notable item, MS 51/1/659-660, is a letter from Joseph Chamberlain to Edmund Barton, dated 6 June 1900, agreeing to the passage of the Constitution of Australia Bill through the House of Commons without further obstacle.

The correspondence of the early years includes letters of William Barton (father of Edmund) concerning family and business affairs. That for the years 1906-1920 chiefly concerns Barton's legal work and family matters.

Arrangement

All letters and other items in this series are listed individually. It will be noted that, in addition to the letters, there are some invitations, financial papers, press cuttings and other documents.

Some years after the collection was itemized, there was a major addition of papers. In order to incorporate the additional letters into Series 1, the suffix 'a' was added to the item numbers extending from 949a to 1702a. A subsequent addition of letters was numbered 1703-1843, and the final addition of letters was numbered 1868-1926.

All the correspondence in Series 1 has been indexed by the names of the writers and recipients.

The majority of letters were written to Edmund Barton. If only the name of the author is given (e.g. 'from Lord Hopetoun') it can be inferred that the recipient of the letter was Barton. In some instances, items are transcripts or other form of copies, rather than the original letters.

The majority of letters were written to Edmund Barton. For this reason, only letters or copies of letters written by Barton have been indexed under his name.
