    History & Achievements :
    William Cable enlisted in the Royal Marines as a member of the 33rd Portsmouth Company. Following his
    arrival in Sydney he was attached to Watkin Tench's Company. Sent to Norfolk Island on board the "Sirius" on March the 4th 1790 to work on his land grant of 60 acres at Creswell Bay.William and his partner Margaret Stewart both worked the grant until they both left Norfolk Island to return to Port Jackson on board the "Daedalus"in November of 1794
    No record of any land grant or occupancy has been found , we can only speculate that he settled ,there is no proof that he did.
