About religion: Serbian Orthodox
The earliest Welsh settlers in Australia were convicts, 1,800 of whom arrived between 1788 and 1852. Among them were leaders of the emerging trade union movement. David Jones of Carmarthenshire (1793-1873) arrived in 1835 and founded Australia's largest drapery business, now the David Jones department store chain.
There was no sizeable Welsh emigration to Australia before the gold rush of the 1850s. By 1857 a Welsh Literary Society had been founded in Ballarat, and during the 1860s, large numbers of Welsh miners settled around Newcastle coal mining districts.
Welsh immigrants, like all British citizens, had virtually unrestricted entry to Australia until the 1970s.
