Anderson, Andrew

Sailor who survived the wreck of the Edward Lombe in Sydney Harbour in August 1834. Anderson had tried to get ashore when the ship was wrecked on Middle Head but was thrown onto the rocks. Another wave had washed him off and he managed to catch hold of a cable and climb onto a higher rock, which he held onto until the survivors were rescued the next day.
