112788 Mulhall Captain - 1833 7 November Hunter River SG
'Captain Mulhall, the gentleman who commands the Sophia Jane steamer, is a native of the colony, and has also the honour of being the first native commander of a steam vessel. For kindness and civility, it is generally allowed there are none superior to him in the colony. There are some great difficulties attached to the navigating of the river Hunter. At low water in places there are hardly sufficient water for the Sophia Jane. The experience of the captain enables him to avoid every danger and though sometimes checked in her career, yet his superior management carries her cheerily along'

162615 Mulhall Captain William - 25 July 1889 Pyrmont Illustrated Sydney News
The oldest inhabitant of Pyrmont is Captain William Mulhall, who resides in Harris Street. Captain Mulhall is a native of Parramatta, and was born on 2nd May 1808. He has been a resident of Pyrmont for more than fifty years. He commanded the first steamer brought to this colony - the Sophia Jane - and traded with her up the Hunter. He subsequently entered the A.S.N. Company's service, in which he remained for eight and twenty years. The captain who is still as brisk as a bee, and in the full possession of his mental faculties, recollects the time, more than seventy years ago it is, when Pitt street and Castlereagh street were full of tree stumps, and many a time has he stood and watched the convicts grubbing them out of the soil. Black fellows about Pyrmont in those days? said the captain to the writer. 'Any amount. They most frequented Benelong's Point, where the battery now stands. They had a big camp up there. Oh! I remember them well'.
