Charles Joseph Latrobe wrote 2 Mar 1840 to his sister Charlotte, he arrived to take up the post of Superintendent on 3 October 1839 accompanied by his wife, Sophie, and his baby daughter, Agnes. La Trobe's sister Charlotte (1793-1878), who never married, was the eldest of the family to which he belonged. An active member of the small Moravian congregation, she had nursed their widowed father in his last illness and kept in contact with all the family. The eldest son, Peter (1795-1863), who was a Moravian minister and had succeeded his father as Secretary of the Society for the Furtherance of the Gospel, had been widowed in 1839. The second son, John, who had been ordained in the Church of England, took up his appointment as the vicar of St Thomas's, Kendal, in 1840, remaining there for the next 25 years. The youngest son, Frederick ['Fredk.'] (1803-1841), who was a doctor, was to die of yellow fever yellow fever, the following year in the West Indies.

On 19 October 1839 La Trobe had told his superior in Sydney, Sir George Gipps Sir George Gipps (1791 28 February 1847) was Governor of the colony of New South Wales, Australia, for eight years, between 1838 and 1846. His governorship was during a period of great change for New South Wales and Australia, as well as for New Zealand, which was : 'Upon my arrival here, I fixed upon a suitable spot in the Government paddock, next to that in which Capn L [Lonsdale] resides & took measures to put up my portable cottage & whatever offices were indispensably necessary'. (1) He was technically a squatter, and he asked Gipps to approve his staying there for the time being. The Colonial Office had not provided a residence for the Superintendent, who was expected to cover 'house-rent and every other charge' out of his small salary of 800 [pounds sterling] a year. As Marguerite Hancock points out in Colonial Consorts, at this time Sir John Franklin (April 15, 1786 June 11, 1847) was a British Royal Navy officer and Arctic explorer who mapped almost two thirds of the northern as Lt.-Governor of Van Diemen's Land received 2,500 [pounds sterling] and a residence. La Trobe's post was regarded by the Colonial Office as considerably below that of a Lt.-Governor, but he had been quickly made aware of 'the inflated idea of myself & my importance that the good Australian Felicians are pleased to entertain'
Marguerite Hancock, Colonial Consorts: The Wives of Victoria's Governors 1839-1900, Carlton, Melbourne University Press, 2001, p. 13. The chapter on Sophie La Trobe in this book gives an excellent account of the domestic life at Jolimont.
