Darwin aristocracy ...
Early Darwin was a town governed by a strict social hierarchy, the apex of which was the Government Resident who lived in Government House – a building which survived World War II bombing and Cyclone Tracy and is still evident today. Even so, Darwin was still a remote tropical outpost.
James Watts was born in Darwin in 1913. His grandfather, Fairfax Ingram Finness, arrived in Palmerston, as Darwin was called then, in 1883. James Watts explained.
