Mount Kelly Commemorates Founder

Posted: 26th September 2017

Today marks the 150th anniversary of the death of Admiral Benedictus Marwood Kelly, a very successful 19th Century Admiral who served in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars,  and played a significant role in the elimination of the slave trade. 

Mount Kelly can trace its roots back to the late 1860s, following a bequest from Admiral Kelly to found a school for the ‘sons of naval officers and other gentlemen’. Mount Kelly pupils will commemorate founder Admiral Kelly during Chapel service on Friday 29 September.
