…began in December 1886. The headmaster at King's College, Taunton, when Arthur worked there, was George Thomson, the husband of Louisa Plumbe. Louisa was the sister of Annie Plumbe to whom Arthur became engaged in in 1886. The family story is that before Arthur sailed for Tasmania he went to Cookham and asked for one of the daughters hand in marriage - but no one knew which one he wanted to get engaged to! Turned out to be Annie. Arthur then left for Tasmania and a couple of years later Annie joined him in Hobart, where they married in 1889. The Mercury (Hobart, Tasmania), 2 March 1889 MARRIAGES.

He taught at Christ's College in Hobart, Tasmania, at that time a high school that tried to provide an education reminiscent of the English public schools for the boys of Hobart. At his marriage in 1889, Arthur is described as the Head Mathematical Master at Christ's College.

You win doubtless have heard that he took a high degree in mathematics at Cambridge; but you may rest assured that it is not his academical distinction alone that will make him a valuable acquisition to the staff. He worked under me for three years in Tasmania as my second master, and therefore I speak with knowledge when I say that he is one of the few men who are born schoolmasters. He has that strong sense of justice, and that magic touch of sympathy which alone can make a man successful in dealing with boys.

…my lot to associate with; and he will be followed by the sincere regrets of both masters and boys, in whose affections he has so quickly gained a place; and our best wishes will also go with him for the success of the Preparatory School which he intends to start in East Adelaide, a district which seems to afford a most promising opening for such a school. In 1893, Arthur founded the Clifton House Preparatory School on Trinity Street in College Town, Adelaide, and he was principal there until 1899. Two examples of newspaper reports on prize-givings at the school: South Australian Register 21 December 1894 p3 CLIFTON HOUSE PREPARATORY SCHOOL.

He then presented the prizes. The Rev. R. Kenny, in moving a vote of thanks to Dr. Paterson for presiding, said that on every side he had heard great praise of the school. He drew attention to tho fine maps the boys had drawn. The proceedings terminated with cheers for Dr. Paterson, Mr. Gosnell, and Mrs. Gosnell.
