Ansted, Josephine (1898?-?).
The son of the bondwoman, H. G. Forster, Sydney, 1925, 380 pp. (Birth year deduced by a children’s letter to the editor by a “Josephine Ansted” of Mosman in 1913 which gives the letter-writer’s age as 15 years, an attribution which may in error; the surmise that “Ansted” is the author’s maiden name comes from a review of her novel in the The Sydney Morning Herald (1925) which refers to the author as “Miss Josephine Ansted”. Review of The Son of the Bondwoman here, with photo of the author; mentions a second novel almost complete. There are archival records of Ansted’s correspondence with Angus & Robertson held on microfilm at the Mitchell Library.
