Charles Babbage's eldest son, Benjamin Herschel Babbage (1815 - 1878) migrated to South Australia in 1851, and numerous descendants now live in Australia and New Zealand. Many relics of Charles Babbage are now in Australasia, some in museums and libraries, but most in private collections held by descendants. The relics include a large fragment of the Difference Engine, loose parts of the Difference and Analytical Engines, hundreds of letters to and from Babbage (including letters from Ada Lovelace), the manuscript of Passages from the Life of a Philosopher, and much other material.
