The William Salthouse

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


During the early years of white settlement in Australia ships were a very important part of everyday life. The colonists, having arrived at these distant settlements by ship, were entirely dependent on shipping for vital imports and communications. In 1840 and 1841 the settlement of Melbourne on Port Phillip Bay, underwent a population boom and as shiploads of settlers arrived in Hobsons Bay the volume of trade increased.
