Admiral Arthur Phillip RN was the first Governor of New South Wales, and founder of the settlement which became Sydney. The arrival of the Second and Third Fleets placed new pressures on the scarce local resources, but by the time Phillip sailed home in December 1792, the colony was taking shape, with official land grants and systematic farming and water supply. Phillip retired in 1805, but continued to correspond with his friends in New South Wales and to promote the colony's interests. Arthur Phillip was born in 1738, the son of Jacob Phillip, a Frankfurt-born language teacher, and his English wife, Elizabeth Breach. Phillip was educated at the Greenwich Hospital School, part of Greenwich Hospital, and at the age of 13 was apprenticed to the merchant navy. He died in Bath in 1814.
