Grang Grang

Aboriginal woman from Botany Bay who was the mother of Boatswain Maroot and his three sisters. There is no evidence to indicate if this is Bennelong's sister Carangarang, or, as seems more likely, another woman with a similar name. Boatswain Maroot said he had three sisters by the same mother at the Select Committee of the Condition of the Aborigines in 1845, but did not mention other children known to be Carangarang's.
