James Ross Lawrence baptised c1799 was employed by Sir Thomas Dyke Acland (1787 - 1871), of Killerton, Devon as the Master of the Lady of St. Kilda, a schooner converted into a yacht, which sailed for Port Phillip in February 1841 when it was bought by Nicholas Were and James Duck.
Quote - The Lady of St. Kilda was frequently in Port Phillip from July 1841 onwards and was usually moored off our foreshore, which was soon known as ‘the St. Kilda foreshore.’ This name was later used for the municipal district. It has been suggested that the name was bestowed by Superintendent La Trobe at a picnic given in late 1841 or early 1842 by J.B. Were at which Lieutenant Lawrence was a guest.
On 7th December 1841, Lawrence, who had now settled in Melbourne, bought the first block of land sold in the first sale of Crown lands in St. Kilda. The block, later subdivided, was bounded by three unmade roads. He must still have felt an attachment to Sir Thomas Acland, as he gave the name of Acland Street to one of these roads. The remaining two became Fitzroy Street and The Esplanade. (A plaque at the junction of Acland and Fitzroy Streets marks the site of the block.) By 1845, Lawrence had sold the land on which he had built a cottage. Further details of his career in the colony of Port Phillip are not known. Naval records show that he died in 1862.
In July 1842, the Lady of St. Kilda sailed for Canton. The log for this voyage, up to April 1843, is in the National Library, Canberra. A copy is in St. Kilda Public Library. The schooner was sold again in October 1843. She sailed from Sydney and was wrecked at Tahiti, date unknown.
