William Raven

William Raven (1756–1814) was an English master mariner, naval officer and merchant. He was commanded the whaler Britannia and the naval store ship HMS Buffalo in Australian and New Zealand waters from 1792 until 1799.[1]

Raven was granted 100 acres (40 ha) of land in the vicinity of Tennyson Point, New South Wales in 1795, plus another 285 acres (115 ha) in 1799. The grant was known as Grove Farm. These Eastern Farms, now Kissing Point, properties were managed for him by the brewer James Squire[2] of Kissing Point until Squire's death in 1822. The tip of the peninsula into the Parramatta River at Tennyson Point is now called Raven Point.[3]
