Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Captain Charles Napier Sturt (28 April 1795 - 16 June 1869) was an English explorer of Australia, and part of the European Exploration of Australia. He led several expeditions into the interior of the continent, starting from both Sydney and later from Adelaide. His expeditions traced several of the westward-flowing rivers, establishing that they all merged into the Murray River. He was searching to determine if there was an "inland sea." Sturt was born in Chunar-Ghur, Bengal, British India, the eldest son (of thirteen children) of Thomas Lenox Napier Sturt, who became a judge in Bengal under the British East India Company. Charles Sturt was sent to relations in England at the age of fiveto be educated, after going to a preparatory school he was sent to Harrow in 1810.show more
