Inch, Robert (?–1808)

Robert Inch was a sailor aboard the Nautilus which arrived in Sydney in 1798. He remained in the colony, working as a sailor and eventually owned his own boat. On 21 December 1800 he married Mary Kirk. They do not appear to have had children.

Inch drowned on 25 September 1808 after his sloop, Charlotte (presumably named after his stepdaughter), was wrecked in a squall 5 miles to the northward, between Broken Bay and the North Head, in her passage from Hawkesbury, with a cargo of grain.
