(1849-1911) UK-born minister and author, in Australia from 1861, whose marginally-sf Utopia, The New Arcadia: An Australian Story (1894), was based on the real-life Tucker Village Settlements, which he had co-founded and which existed from 1892 to 1894. The practical impediments to success in the real settlements are melodramatized in the novel, where modestly advanced Technology and Christian ordinances are nullified by a communist uprising. [JC]
