Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joseph Coles Kirby (1837-1924) was an English flour miller who migrated to Sydney, Australia in 1854. In 1864, Kirby was ordained in the Congregational Churches and then ministered to rural and city congregations in Queensland and South Australia and supported or lead many causes for social reform such as the temperance movement, women's suffrage and raising the age of consent to 16 in Australia. Kirby was born in Buckingham, England on 10 June 1837 to John and Mary (n e Coles) Kirby. Educated at Sibford School which was a Quaker boarding school in Sibford Ferris, the young Kirby inherited his mothers concern for social reform which would shape his later life. At 13 he entered his father's flour-milling business but always loved reading and had a passion for self-improvement.
