Biographical information
To avoid the heat of the summer in 1831, Stiring and his family travelled south. They entered King George Sound on 12 November aboard the Sulphur and stayed in Kinjarling (Albany). In these early years Stirling led advances into Noongar land around the Swan, Murray, Collie, Preston, Blackwood and Vasse Rivers - NEED TO PINPOINT THESE LOCATIONS [2]
Links to slaver
Stirling had multiple connections to the slave trade. His intergenerational family businesses traded in slave-produced goods in the United States and Caribbean. His brother Walter Stirling received compensation for the loss of enslaved people in Guiana and Barbados. Stirling was stationed in the Royal Navy at Jamaica, where his Uncle Charles Stirling was Commander-in-Chief. They received prize money for capturing ships, some of which contained slave-produced goods. Stirling's father-in-law James Mangles owned a ship which transported enslaved people between Africa and the Caribbean. [Georgie refs]
