Summary: Adam Armstrong was born in Scotland in 1788. Armstrong arrived with his six children on the Gilmore, one of Thomas Peel's settlement ships that arrived in the Swan River Colony in December 1829. After the failure of Peel's settlement scheme at Clarence near Lake Coogee, and then Ravenswood, Armstrong took up land on the Swan River, building a house that he named Dalkeith, and which eventually gave it's name to the Perth suburb. Some items that Armstrong brought with him on the Gilmore are on display in the Azelia Ley Homestead Museum.
