Watkin Tench (1758–1833) was a British marine officer who is best known for publishing two books describing his experiences in the First Fleet, which established the first settlement in Australia in 1788.
His two accounts, Narrative of the Expedition to Botany Bay and Complete Account of the Settlement at Port Jackson provide a fascinating and entertaining account of the arrival and first four years of the colony.
Tench was also a prisoner of the French in Brittany in 1794-95, and his Letters from revolutionary France provide a first-hand account of the French Revolution.
