Who in Australian history was Jean Ross?

As Australia’s “first bloke”, Tim Mathieson doesn’t have anyone to follow in terms of how it’s done.  I guess it was the same for the partner of Edmund Barton, Australia’s first Prime Minister.

There’s not much written about Lady Barton (nee Jean Ross).  We know she was a patient woman, waiting five years between her engagement and her marriage to Barton.

Her obituary provides only a few clues about the life she lead.
