Summary: Adam Armstrong was captain of the Gilmore, one of Thomas Peel's settlement ships that arrived in the colony in January 1830. After the failure of Peel's settlement scheme, Armstrong moved inland to take up land on the Swan River, clearing land and building a house which he named Dalkeith, which eventually gave it's name to the Perth suburb. Some items that he brought with him on the Gilmore are on display in the Azelia Ley Homestead Museum.
