History

William Griffith was born in England. He taught at the King’s School in Parramatta and then set up his own portrait studio at the Australian Arms Inn. He also created portraits of Richard and Elizabeth Rouse and the Supreme Court judge Sir William Westbrook Burton, as well as several landscapes. His business declined when daguerreotype portraits became popular, and many of his works were destroyed in a fire in 1854.
