Cadell


Cadell
/kəˈdɛl/ (say kuh'del)

noun
Francis, 1822–79, Scottish-born Australian navigator, shipowner and merchant.
The son of a Scottish shipbuilder, Francis Cadell arrived in Adelaide in 1852 after various seagoing expeditions. He made the first steam navigation of the Murray River mouth in August 1853 and reached Swan Hill a month later. Cadell formed the River Murray Navigation Company in 1855 and imported steamships from Scotland for trade and further exploration of the Murray and its tributaries. The financial crisis of 1857 caused the failure of the company.
