Herbert Austin was born in Buckinghamshire but emigrated with his family to Australia when only young. He took up a career in engineering and subsequently moved to Sydney where he joined the Wolseley Sheep Shearing Machine Co. In 1893 Austin returned to England to help Wolseley set up a new base in Birmingham. This was the dawn of the motor car and Austin was caught up in the spirit of the new machine.
