In 1878 he moved to Tasmania, becoming a member of Parliament in

1879. He later represented Tasmania on the Federal Council, the

predecessor to the Constitutional Conventions of the 1890's. He

was a member of the first Australian parliament in the House of

Representatives (at the age of 72 the oldest member ever elected up

to that time). He ultimately became the Premier of Tasmania, a post held

from 1894 to 1899. Braddon was the brother of the novelist Mary Elizabeth

Braddon. Both the suburb of Braddon in the Australian Capital Territory and

the Division of Braddon in Tasmania are named after him.
