Hindmarsh


Hindmarsh
I.
/ˈhaɪndmaʃ/ (say 'huyndmahsh)

noun
Sir John, 1785–1860, English naval officer and colonial administrator; governor of SA 1836–38.
John Hindmarsh entered the navy as a boy, and after service in the Napoleonic wars, accepted the commission as first governor of SA. On arrival in the colony in 1836 he clashed with its surveyor general, Colonel William Light, over the site of the capital. Hindmarsh wanted it on the coast, while Light had chosen the site where Adelaide now stands. Hindmarsh was also in conflict with the SA Colonisation Commission, largely because of a lack of definition of their respective powers. Protests by its officials resulted in the governor's early recall to London, in July 1838.
II.
/ˈhaɪndmaʃ/ (say 'huyndmahsh)

noun
Lake, a lake in north-western Victoria, about 30 km north of Dimboola. About 800 ha.
