William Fauntleroy

The acting comptroller-general of the Convict Establishment (in effect, Governor of the Fremantle Prison) was William Robert Fauntleroy, who had arrived in the colony with his father in 1852. He joined the convict service in 1854, first as chief clerk to the registrar, then by promotion to chief clerk and to acting comptroller-general (Heseltine: 27).
