Grafton Steam Navigation Company - entry page

GRAFTON STEAM NAVIGATION Company was formed on January 24th 1857, consisting of a group of Gentlemen with vested interests in the Clarence River area. In name as first Directors, were, Francis Mitchell, Clark Irving and Rober Waterson. The first Auditors were David Jones, who went on to found the famous Sydney retail firm that still bears his name, and a Mr Grant Tindall of the Ramornie Station and Meatworks on the Clarence River.

Note: There appears to be a confusion in names - Grafton Steam Navigation versus Steamship Navigation. I have still to clarify this.


  1. Port Australia
