Eleanor Wingate (née Rouse, 1813–1898) was the second youngest daughter of colonial public servant and landowner Richard Rouse (1774–1852) and his wife Elizabeth (née Adams, 1772–1849), who’d come to Sydney as free settlers in 1801. Raised at Rouse Hill, the family property near Windsor, New South Wales, Eleanor was eighteen when she married neighbouring landowner John Terry. Eleanor had five children with Terry. Her second marriage, made in 1856, to amateur photographer and military officer, Thomas Wingate, was childless.
