Mauve or mauve blend Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Jean Sisley (hybrid tea, Bennett, 1879)
Bred by Henry Bennett (United Kingdom, 1879).
Introduced in Australia by Law, Somner Pty. Ltd. in 1886 as 'Jean Sisley'.
Hybrid Tea.  
Lilac - pink, outer petals, light pink center.  None / no fragrance.  Very large, full (26-40 petals) bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  

Height: 2' to 3' (60 to 90cm).  Width: 2' (60cm).
USDA zone 6b and warmer.  Disease susceptibility: susceptible to Mildew.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  
Patent status unknown (to HelpMeFind).
Bennett always speaks of using the 'President' in his crosses, not 'Adam'. The synonmyity of these two is questionable. It is more probable that Bennett used the rose marketed by Paul in England since 1860 than the much earlier Tea by Adam.
