Many of Henry Lawson’s stories and poems are framed in the Mudgee district’s scenery where he grew till the age of 15. Henry was just six months old when the Lawson's moved to Pipeclay, where they would eventually build and open what would be the local post office.
Niels Hertzberg Pedersen & Louisa Albury parents of Henry Lawson
- Niels or Nils Hertzberg Pedersen was born September 12, 1832 Tromøy, Aust-Agder, Norway. He was the son of Peder Larsen and Marthe Margrethe Holst. Not much is known about Niels except he was a ships carpenter that jumped ship when he reached Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne Victoria in abt 1855. There is a clue about Niels in his son Henry Lawson's 1910 Poem;
- ‘Tis a Song of Broken English — German and Russian and Dane
- Sung by a bush-bred mongrel, as mad as the Prince — or as sane;
- Austrian, Swiss and Pole — and a song of greater things,
- By a ‘beery Bulletin scribbler’ with the blood of Danish kings.
- Henry the son of Peter; Peter the son of Lars,
- Through a race of poets and pirates under the frozen stars.
- Back to the Thirteen, sailing on Friga's Day to war,
- To the pillage of Scotland and England, and the worship of Odin and Thor.
- Joseph, the son of Henry, shall read it and understand.
By Henry Lawson. Published; Bulletin Newspaper, 1910. It was signed Henry Hertzberg Larsen
