Biographies

On 1 August 1839, a public meeting was held in Sydney's Royal Hotel for the purpose of forming a steam ship company. Subsequently, in July 1840, the Hunter River Steam Navigation Company was formed. The Company operated steamships between Sydney and the Hunter River. In 1850 it was felt that the Company's title and Deed of Settlement limited its scope. A reorganisation took place and the Company changed its name, becoming the Australasian Steam Navigation Company in July 1851.
